Where We Work

Although BCF Minerals is located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we work to acquire assets located in quality reservoirs nationwide. Currently, our team is actively pursuing mineral acquisitions in Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio, and West Virginia inside of several emerging and mature plays. Mid-Continent and Appalachia fields have long produced excellent reserves for the oil and gas industry. BCF Minerals is proud to be at the forefront of exploration efforts by connecting buyers with sellers of mineral holdings.

Some of the interests we currently target include:


Located in the Anadarko Basin, the STACK play combines the Sooner Trend oil field, Anadarko Basin, Canadian County, and Kingfisher County. Most of the STACK play is located across Canadian and Kingfisher counties in Oklahoma; however, exploration efforts have expanded to Blaine, Major, and Garfield counties. The STACK is not a geological formation. Instead, it is a geographical referenced area that has become a prolific producer.

Current Areas of Interest: Oklahoma


The SCOOP play, also known as the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province, is principally located in the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma. In 2012, Continental Resources began to search for oil-rich properties near its Woodford gas assets, leading to a significant upswing in the market. After research, Continental Resources described the SCOOP play as an oil and liquids-rich province with one of the most outstanding resource shale reservoirs in the United States.

Current Areas of Interest: Oklahoma

The Utica Shale

Often considered one of the brightest stars of the developing United States resource play interests, the Utica Shale play spans much of the northern Appalachian basin, Michigan basin, and Cincinnati-Findlay Arches. Although Ohio is the primary point of interest for the Utica Shale, other productive areas include West Virginia, Quebec, Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan. Currently, a lack of viable infrastructure has stalled rapid development.

Current Areas of Interest: Ohio, West Virginia

The Marcellus Shale

The Marcellus Shale play was not considered a significant hydrocarbon producer in the Appalachian Basin until 2004. By 2009, approximately 70 individual companies have acquired lease positions to establish vertical and horizontal discovery wells. The Marcellus Shale spans more than 28 million acres across Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Maryland. Due to the favorable geological setting and early flow-test rates, the Marcellus Shale play is now considered one of the major hydrocarbon accumulations globally.

Current Areas of Interest: Ohio, West Virginia

The Permian Basin

One of the oldest and most prolific oil and gas producing regions in the United States, the Permian Basin spans roughly 86,000 square miles across Texas and New Mexico. The Permian Basin is divided into three main regions, the Midland Basin, Central Basin, and Delaware Basin. Drilling in these areas began in the 1920s’ and peaks and troughs have occurred in production levels over time. New drilling technology and elevated oil prices have renewed a focus on the Permian Basin, making it a hot commodity in the oil and gas industry.

Current Areas of Interest: Texas

The Eagle Ford Shale

The Eagle Ford Shale play is located in South Texas and has proven to produce at a range of depths – primarily between 4,000 and 14,000 feet. This solitary play has redefined South Texas as one of the hotbeds of natural gas exploration. It has directly impacted the regional economy by creating over 116,000 jobs and encouraging roughly $30 billion in development in 2013 alone. The Eagle Ford Shale has high liquids yields across much of the play, leading it to be one of the most active globally, with over 100 running rigs.
