LOCAL | WHO WE ARE
CrownRock Minerals is a Midland-based company, led by Midland natives.
We have a long history of developing oilfields and buying minerals and royalties in our home counties in the Permian Basin.
CrownRock Minerals is the minerals buying effort of CrownQuest Operating, LLC. CrownQuest, through its CrownRock E&P arm, is developing a 100,000 acre position in the Midland Basin that produces from nearly a thousand wells. Both CrownRock and CrownRock Minerals are part of a decade-long partnership between CrownQuest and Lime Rock Partners, a leading energy-focused private equity firm.
We and our predecessor entities have been buying mineral rights and royalties in the Permian Basin for over 30 years and have been operating our own E&P company for 21 years. We have bought mineral and royalty interests from families throughout the area. These sellers can discuss how we operate and helped them achieve their goals in selling mineral rights.

CREATIVE | HOW WE WORK
Selling your mineral rights in the Permian Basin does not need to be an either/or decision.
We pride ourselves on creatively working with Permian Basin mineral owners on the right solution for them. We have demonstrated this creativity throughout our careers as mineral rights and royalty buyers, in both large and small acquisitions in the Permian Basin.
We help sellers brainstorm the best solution for the issues facing them:
What is the most tax-efficient strategy for you? Would a tax-free exchange coincide with your goals?
What are your long-term investment goals/strategy after selling your mineral rights?
What do you need to do to effectively manage your existing mineral interests?
Do you have any charitable giving strategies in which your minerals should play a part?
Does selling all or part of your minerals make more sense?
TRANSPARENT | WHAT WE BELIEVE
We know selling your minerals can be confusing.
We don't start talking to sellers with an offer. We start with a conversation.
We help you understand what you own and what documents you need to confirm what you own. Often, this requires digging into courthouse files that may be more than a century old.
We explain how the mineral business works.
As longstanding operators in the Permian Basin, we explain how other operators like us are thinking about developing their properties.
We explain our goals and assumptions as buyers, and we listen to your goals as sellers.
If you ask for an offer, we respond fast.
