Oil and Gas Management

“Growing up in ‘small-town’ America, as part of a family whose roots go back generations in the oil and gas business, I’ve had the privilege and joy of being around some of the finest the oil field has to offer.  From waking up early in the morning to go out and inspect sites with my friends and their dads, to doing roughneck work in high school and in my early college years, to eventually working for an operator shortly after college, my career has taken several turns. But as time has gone by, I’ve found the most joy and satisfaction in sitting on the side of the mineral owner and serving as an advocate for those who need someone with the breadth, knowledge and skill set to take this on for them.  

Bryan Frazier, Head of Energy Asset Management at Private Wealth

Early on in my career, I found myself serving as an advocate for mineral owners at a large bank, where I enjoyed the daily interaction with clients, answering questions and essentially being their ‘landman.’  As time went by, it became clear to me the large banks were performing mineral management out of necessity, rather than out of a want to service a need for their clients. Here at Private Wealth, we place our focus on our clients by investing in cutting-edge mineral management technology and having a dedicated staff that has the experience and knowledge to maximize the value of these unique assets. We recognize the importance of these assets and the legacy many wish to leave for future generations.”
