Developing legacy and greenfield assets since 1929

Burk Royalty Co is a family-office backed E&P company based out of Wichita Falls, Texas, focused on acquiring and developing producing properties.

WHAT WE DO​

Our approach is to marry sound engineering with our financial objectives to solve complex physical problems in the field.
