Natural gas prices are crashing. Mineral and royalty entities continued to consolidate.

Mineral and royalty (M&R) entities continued to consolidate. Publicly traded Sitio Royalties was formed in June 2022 from the combination of Desert Peak and Falcon Minerals. Sitio then merged with Brigham Minerals in late 2022, joining Viper and Black Stone Minerals as the major M&Rs.
