Our Strategy

An innovative approach to mineral and royalty acquisition.

Single Basin Focus
Unlike many mineral acquisition firms, Gateway focuses exclusively on one basin — the Utica Shale in Eastern Ohio. Over time, this targeted strategy has allowed us to develop a sophisticated understanding of operators, geography, geology, and momentum in the Utica play.
Data-Driven Investing
Every mineral or royalty acquisition is informed by a proven, proprietary approach to data collection and analytics. Gateway evaluates production, payment, and geological data on a case-by-case, well-by-well basis to make strategic purchases in the highest-quality acreage.
Expert Team
Gateway is managed by a small core team of dedicated professionals with deep experience in the energy industry. By staying lean, Gateway rapidly identifies,investigates, and capitalizes on new acquisition opportunities.
Local Outreach
Since our founding in 2012, our team has built relationships with non-profits and community stakeholders throughout the Ohio Valley. Our emphasis on community has made Gateway Royalty a highly-recognized and highly-trusted name in our region.
Acting with Integrity
Every aspect of our business is governed by our values: honesty, integrity and respect. We’re committed to doing business the right way: saying what we mean, and doing what we say.
Long-Term Outlook
Today, after nearly a decade of activity, less than 30% of the Utica play has been developed. Gateway believes in value creation through a long-term outlook. We intend to continue acquiring mineral and royalty assets as the Utica play matures.
