Oil and Gas
Arkoma was founded in 1983 as an oil and gas exploration company operating in the Arkoma Basin of Southeastern Oklahoma.
In 1985, the value of Arkoma’s proprietary technical database of geologic and engineering information naturally resulted in the pioneering of its first private mineral acquisition program. The innovative low to medium risk investment program was established to capitalize on the existing opportunities in the Mid-Continent Region of the United States to purchase minerals and royalties. This focused investment strategy resulted in the opportunity for Arkoma to continue its involvement in the Arkoma Basin on behalf of several institutional clients. Some of Arkoma’s institutional investors have included Stanford University Endowment, Austin College Endowment and JP Morgan Chase Bank (Mercantile Bank Trust).
In 1995, Arkoma transitioned into a family office focused on energy investments, retaining and managing 100% of all assets purchased through the help of Arkoma’s in-house team of geologists, engineers and landmen.
