About the Event


Darin founded Mesa Minerals Partners III, LLC (“Mesa”) with over $250 million in equity commitments from NGP Natural Resources XI, L.P. and NGP Royalty Partners II, L.P.  Darin serves as the President and CEO of Mesa which is focused on the acquisition of aggregated mineral and royalty portfolios across all the major shale basins in the US with a focus on minerals and royalties in the Permian basin (Midland and Delaware) and the Haynesville shale play in North Louisiana and East Texas. 


Prior to forming Mesa III, Darin served as President & CEO of Mesa Minerals Partners II (“Mesa II”). Mesa II was formed in June 2021 with equity commitments from NGP. Through a series of transactions, Mesa II fully divested its assets by January 2024, ultimately delivering its investors over a 2.0x net return. Previously, Darin was the President & CEO of Mesa Minerals Partners LLC, a Quantum Energy Partners backed mineral and royalty company focused in the E. Texas Haynesville shale play.  In less than a year and half the company assembled over 22,000 net royalty acres and grew cash flow to over $35 million/year   The company successfully sold in December 2020 to Franco-Nevada Corporation for $135 million.  


Prior to forming the Mesa franchise, Darin served on the Executive Management team at Haymaker Minerals & Royalties, LLC (“Haymaker”). Haymaker successfully sold the majority of its assets in 2018 for over $450 million in cash and stock.
