Jake Dobkins
Acquisitions Manager
A midwestern kid by heart who was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Jake’s oil and gas career began when he attended The University of Tulsa where he earned his Energy Management Degree while playing soccer. After graduating, Jake’s first job was with Chevron where he gained valuable Operator experience and focused on core drilling and development in some of the country’s most challenging fields. After identifying opportunities for improvement in both the Land and Acquisition space, Jake moved to Austin, TX and has been involved in helping mineral owners understand their assets and technologically advancing the transactions sector to provide transparency in the selling process. With the approach of honesty and data first, Jake has helped over 330 mineral owners obtain over $100MM in value for their assets. If you are ever in Austin, chances are you can find Jake at one of the many swimming holes around the city, or at the closest establishment that serves a Ranch Water.
