West-Texas-rooted EnCore Permian is backed by a large private capital firm with over $8 billion in assets. J. D. Smith (Big Spring, Texas) and Josh Lorenz (Midland, Texas) founded EnCore Permian as a successor to PetroLima, LLC. Expanding on the former company’s leasehold and mineral acquisition strategies, the new endeavor has grown into an upstream exploration and production firm.

Our Strategy

EnCore Permian acquires leasehold and mineral interests throughout the Midland and Delaware basins focusing on the Wolfcamp Shale. The Company unlocks the power of landowners’ wealth by leasing or purchasing minerals at competitive prices and accelerating the development timeline of these interests.
