Justin Love, founder and CEO of Blackbuck Resources LLC, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Blackbuck was founded in 2018 in response to water management solutions gaining momentum since the shale boom. The Houston-based company designs, builds and operates water infrastructure in Texas and New Mexico.
Blackbuck “represents the culmination of nearly 10 years of lightning-fast evolution in the oil and gas industry as related to water management,” Love said.
Love has always closely followed the E&P sector’s needs related to water issues.
Prior to launching Blackbuck, Love founded Love Energy Advisors (LEA), a boutique global advisory and origination energy and water group, in 2014. The firm was focused on “serving as a focal point between investors, water technology entrepreneurs and E&P companies at a critical time when there was generally little connectivity or understanding between said parties,” Love said.
Tamarack Petroleum Co. Inc. retained RedOaks Energy Advisors as its exclusive adviser in connection with the sale of operated positions in the Permian and Illinois basins.
Affiliates of Chevron Corp. retained EnergyNet Indigo for the sale of its assets in the Carter Knox Field in Oklahoma's Grady and Stephens counties.
Here’s a snapshot of recent energy deals including a multimillion-dollar acquisition by ConocoPhillips in Canada’s Montney Shale plus CNX Resources’ buyout of its midstream affiliate.
