Troy W Eckard

Troy W. Eckard

An energy expert since 1985. Enjoyed 35 years of investing in and managing assets ranging from oil and gas minerals, leases, seismic acquisitions, salt water disposal wells, pipelines, exploration, production and most activity in upstream and midstream! My passion has been working on behalf of wealthy individuals who desire to directly own energy assets. I've been blessed, challenged, seen major cycles both up and down! Our direction today is to aggregate, maturation and prudently liquidate as we build wealth for our partners and our firm!
