SouthBend Resources Operating Upstream and Midstream energy assets within Opportunity Zones Ft Worth, TX



We have founded and invested in traditional and alternative energy companies, including building the largest bio-diesel refinery in the world, and acquiring minerals and drilling wells in some of the most prolific shale plays. We pursue opportunities predominantly in North American oil and natural gas assets, which may include (i) oil and gas working interests; (ii) minerals and royalties; and (iii) midstream assets (iv) opportunistic financings, structured either through asset-level investments or through structured investments in businesses owning these interests and/or related assets, and (v) select energy assets within opportunity zones.

We employ a differentiated approach to investing in oil and gas, which includes a flexible investment mandate and active risk management strategy complemented by deep industry expertise.

Today we participate in in-fill well opportunities in TX, OK, NM, mineral acquisitions, and select midstream assets.

Current Opportunity Zone classifications allow our SouthBend Resources team to explore, produce, and distribute hydrocarbons in a tax advantaged manner that is unprecedented.

Our SouthBend Opportunity Zone Fund is acquiring and developing upstream and midstream assets in Delaware Basin, Eagle Ford, Wolf Camp, and Utica.
