    Building on a storied history in oil and gas Montego Minerals was founded in 2009 as a family office that pursues mineral and royalty acquisitions, but the executive team’s combined expertise extends back to 1956.

    At that time, founding principal Monty Gist worked at Humble Oil and Refining (now Exxon Mobile), followed by six decades working with independent exploration companies in and around the Permian Basin. Gist’s son and grandson, founding principals S. Rhett Gist (a master petroleum engineer) and B. Cutler Gist (an industrial engineer), have followed in Monty’s footsteps, also carving out successful careers in the oil and gas and the mineral and royalty industries.

    Montego Minerals is an accumulation of deep experience in all areas of petroleum engineering and geology, oil and gas consulting, economics, and exploration. The company focuses on high potential assets in the Permian Basin, specifically in the Midland Basin, as well as the East Texas Basin.
