About Us

North Dakota Minerals is comprised of experienced landmen, geoscientists, geologists, geophysicists and petroleum engineers that work to evaluate the income potential and expected oil and gas reserve life of your property. Our team members have worked in this industry for decades, and have been involved in the oil and gas industry in North Dakota since the early 2000’s.

Our approach to offers is unique and simple: when presenting you with an offer, we consider:

  1. Current production of wells
  2. Potential, additional wells that could be implemented

We provide value to our customers by easing the risk of zero or no returns in volatile mineral markets through immediate financial compensation.
