Eckard Enterprises: Investing in Tangible Assets Since 1985

Eckard Enterprises, LLC (Eckard) is a family-owned and operated alternative investment and asset management firm, specializing in the U.S. oil and gas industry. Our managed assets include water rights, oil and gas mineral rights, exploration and production, steel fabrication, natural gas and crude oil pipelines, residential and commercial real estate, and other commodity investment opportunities. It all began with one man’s commitment to a brighter energy-focused future. Since 1985, Troy W. Eckard has dedicated his entire career to the U.S. energy industry and managing alternative investment portfolios, giving him a wealth of knowledge and expertise for private investors who seek to develop successful, diversified portfolios. The Eckard Team is tirelessly committed to identifying, acquiring, developing, and maturing the right tangible assets exclusively for our valued partners.

Eckard Offers More Than Investing

We’re driven to help our investing partners, not only build wealth, but to educate and form lasting relationships for years to come.

How is Eckard different than other private investing firms?

We ensure full transparency into our investments. Along with regular, detailed reports, we give our clients access to our custom, industry-first app. Our app, Eckard Insight, allows you to see your investment breakdowns as macro or granular as you the like. So you can fully assess how your investment is doing at every level.

We make accessibility a key priority to every one of our partners, including  annual Partner conferences, investor dinners throughout the year, field trips, and weekly webinars and Zoom meetings with our team. 

We specialize in the energy sector, but have expertise in tangible assets across multiple industries, including real estate and other commodity markets. This allows us to offer boundless earning opportunities to our investing partners both for an abundance of cash flow and long-term investment strategies.

The Eckard Difference

Investors Become Partners

Our investors are our Partners – the firm’s most important asset. We take great care in how we manage your portfolio. Your success is our success.

Analyze to Maximize

Staying ahead of a trend means being there before everyone else reads about it, and seeing the full picture while navigating through in-depth data sources. We don’t follow trends, we create them.

Not Another Brokerage Company

We're a hands-on investment firm that prioritizes transparency and accessibility. We hold an annual Partner’s Conference and numerous events throughout the year so our staff and all our partners can connect. We are also one of the only investment firms in energy to provide a custom app, Eckard Insight. Our app allows you to view all of your investment and returns in one place to see in-depth details and activity reports for every project connected to your portfolio.

Eckard Enterprises Field Trip - Eckard Events

At Eckard Enterprises, we believe that owning tangible assets is one of the safest, long-term strategies available in today’s investment climate. This makes it one of the best investments of 2024 and beyond.

A Path To Success

AML Strategy

Eckard Enterprises - Troy W. Eckard with Partners

AML Strategy

Eckard is focused on aggregating undervalued assets, maturating the assets over time, and liquidating at the right time.

The AML strategy is a product of more than 35 years experience with investing and managing high net worth investor portfolios with a specialization in energy.

Fragmented industries void of a centralized market creates chaos, and that chaos creates opportunity. That opportunity is what Eckard finds for its Partners.

The AML Strategy has been at the core of Eckard Enterprises’ approach to investment opportunities since the beginning.


First, we start by focusing on acquiring smaller assets of similar class, characteristics, and market unity to create a large basket of undervalued assets.


Then, we take that basket of under-matured or underdeveloped assets and give them proper management, capital for growth, and time to see the value increase. With that, those same assets can turn into a value basis worth multiples of what they were originally valued.


Finally, no one wants to sell the racehorse when it's winning. Our experience has shown that every asset has a reasonable maturity date. Once that time comes, the best plan is to sell when the market is ripe for a prudent exit to capture maximum values.

What Do We Offer?

Four Pillars of Eckard's
Energy Investing

Eckard Enterprises focuses on four unique sectors in the energy industry. From mineral rights, to oil and gas well direct ownership, pipeline ventures, and fabrication services, we can build you a well-rounded portfolio that yields big returns.

Eckard - Mineral Rights

Mineral Rights

Eckard Land and Acquisition LLC (ELA) buys, leases, and sells mineral rights. Unlike oil and natural gas stocks, ELA owns minerals leased by major publicly traded oil companies with no middle-man required.

Eckard Enterprises - Oil and Gas Investing

Oil & Gas Wells

Eckard Global and Eckard Exploration and Production are participating in working interest drilling and production projects. Projects like these keep the industry moving in a profitable direction.

Eckard - Pipeline Investment


Eckard Midstream is the owner of a major natural gas pipeline company situated with assets in the Gulf of Mexico. This venture gives our partners access to energy consumers' most valuable resource.

Eckard - Fabrication


Royalty Fabrication, a steel fabrication facility, is providing services to the oil and gas field with increased exposure in the industry. Royalty Fabrication is creating a lasting infrastructure that helps your investments succeed long-term.

We seek investors who want to place $250,000 to $1,000,000 per year in tangible assets. Most of our Partners started off their first investment with as little as $50,000. Nevertheless, we don’t set your comfort level. You do. We welcome new investing Partners.

Most of our investments are direct ownership. What you buy you own directly. Eckard manages and oversees your investments and reports to you about the investment.

We also structure Funds (debt and equity) that provide you ownership interest in its operations.
