A strong acquisition strategy is about more than assets — it is also about discipline. Our experienced team of experts follows a proven evaluation process to ensure each property we acquire is a good long-term fit for our portfolio. We examine history, current production and potential for growth, and identify assets with the greatest opportunities to provide attractive, consistent returns.

Experience has taught us that mature, stable assets provide the best opportunities for long-term value that can be extended over time. We look for fields with a long history of production, which generally indicates more predictable future decline rates. We focus on high reserve-to-production ratios, reducing sensitivity to short-term commodity price volatility.
Our strong financial position allows us to be extremely competitive in the properties we identify. Merit has closed on $8.2 billion in acquisitions since its inception, with assets that span multiple basins, reservoirs and states. We have acquired a first-class portfolio of stable properties, and diverse knowledge of operating areas. With a focus on diligent evaluation and consistent refinement, we will continue to grow our portfolio and maximize the value of each of our assets.
