From a small South Texas town to the concrete jungle of Dallas, Texas, Troy W. Eckard started his career as an oil and gas broker. Several years later, he became aware of an opportunity that shaped what we now know as Eckard Enterprises, LLC. Being an investor himself, Mr. Eckard saw an opportunity to partner with like-minded investors (Partners), and work on their behalf, to acquire long-term, and cash-flowing assets. The company's roots were built on oil and gas investments, but quickly grew across various industries, such as real estate, water rights, mineral rights, midstream / pipeline sector, and mergers and acquisitions that fit the goals and objectives of the company and its partners. Mr. Eckard has been involved in more than 3,000 square miles of mineral acres across 7 states, is a principal Partner in Kinetica Partners that owns over 1,800 miles of pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico, and has a portfolio of over 300 wells in the continental United States.
