Source Rock Royalties: A Pure-play on Oil & Gas Royalties in Western Canada

Source Rock Royalties (TSXV:SRR) focuses on oil & gas royalties in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The company’s portfolio comprises various gross overriding royalty interests in southeast Saskatchewan and a gross overriding royalty in largely contiguous Clearwater interests in Central Alberta. Source Rock Royalties offers investors low-risk and low-capital-cost exposure to the oil & gas sector with a royalty business model that shares in production revenue without exposure to the capital costs associated with drilling, development, maintenance, abandonment, environmental and other obligations.

Source Rock acquired new royalties worth nearly C$13 million in 2023 and a total of C$16.5 million since its IPO in March 2022 effectively doubling the company’s royalty acreage. The acquisitions further enhanced its current royalty production and exposure to potential undeveloped drill locations. Source Rock generated C$6.6 million in royalty revenue in 2023, the highest in its 11-year history.

The majority of Source Rock’s royalties are derived from top-line revenue, resulting in minimal exposure to deductions linked to production costs from wellbores and the sale of various commodities. Also, the majority of its current royalty payors are financially stable and possess robust capabilities to efficiently operate and enhance the value of the lands in which Source Rock holds royalties. Some of the key royalty payors include Whitecap Resources (TSX:WCP), Rubellite Energy (TSX:RBY), Surge Energy (TSX:SGY), Crescent Point Energy (TSX:CPG) and Anova Resources (Private), among many others.
