JD Smith

J.D. Smith began his career in 2002 in drilling and offshore completions until transitioning to leasing in the Permian Basin in 2007. In 2009, Smith was the exclusive landman for a $3 million, 42,000+ acre prospect which was later purchased by Petrohawk (backed by PE firm PineBrook Partners) for $42 million, a 5% Overriding Royalty, and carried Working Interest considerations. In this same capacity, Smith transacted on over 150,000 acres of Permian leasehold and generated a net profit of $100 million between 2009 and 2012. Smith also founded a non-profit, clean water initiative, the John 4:14 Foundation, that has completed over 250 projects (www.j414.org) and serves over 1 million people in Uganda.
