Welcome Patrick. There is enough cash (almost) on the balance sheet to buy DMLP if you are so inclined.
TPL’s top two revenue drivers are tying up in a $33B deal.
From TPL’s 10-K:
During 2018, we received $46.0 million, or approximately 15% of our total revenues (prior to deferrals), which included $22.9 million of oil and gas royalty revenue, $11.9 million of easements and sundry income (prior to deferrals), and $11.1 million of water sales and royalties, from Anadarko E&P Onshore, LLC and $49.4 million, or approximately 16% of our total revenues (prior to deferrals), which included $27.1 million of oil and gas royalty revenue and $18.9 million of revenue from sales of oil and gas royalty interests, from Chevron U.S.A., Inc.
Anadarko is water customer. Strange that Chevron is not.
TPL did sell $19MM in royalties to CVX in 2018 so we know that communication line is open.
XOM > CXO or NBL or PXD or DVN or XEC is probably next. This is a first big step in the majors cleaning up the Permian.
