Who We Are

Orthwein Energy can trace its roots back over 120 years to one of America’s first oil booms in Oil City, Pennsylvania. Beginning with one man, a horse, and a buggy, the parent companies to Orthwein Energy grew to being a key player in Illinois Basin. The company eventually sold operations in 1975, deciding the acquisition of oil and gas royalties provided a more stable business model.

Orthwein Energy is a family owned and operated company, and we constantly strive to conduct business in a way which ensures both parties are satisfied. We work hard to save your time and to offer only the fairest prices for Mineral, Royalty, Overriding Royalty, and Non-Operated Working Interests.
