Welcome to Chieftain Royalty Company Our history with mineral and royalty interests began in 1917 when Judge G.C. Abernathy began buying minerals from his law office in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Today, the fourth generation continues the tradition started by him and followed by his sons, Kenneth Abernathy and noted oilman Jack Abernathy. We buy mineral and royalty interests across the Western United States, and we follow the same standards of integrity, honesty and fair dealing that began in Shawnee more than 90 years ago.
Chieftain Royalty welcomes all offers to sell minerals from anywhere in the United States. Our clients are important to us, and we are focused enough to pay attention to the smallest sale, but have enough strength and stability to close large transactions also.
At Chieftain we value mineral and royalties based upon several factors. Non-producing mineral interests are valued according to the oil and gas activity in each county. Producing royalties are valued on current cash flow and future revenue potential. Various factors can affect our offers, including the size of each tract, quality of production and prices being paid for similar interests in the area, as well as other considerations specific to each property.
