A non-profit organization established originally in the early 1980s in Oklahoma, NARO’s mission is one of education and advocacy. It represents 7.5 to 12 million mineral owners in the United States to assist them in learning how to care take and protect their mineral property.
“Most U.S. mineral owners have their property through inheritance and never thought they would be in the oil and gas industry as a development partner, but here they are,” said Cynthia Simonds, NARO’s national development director. “And there is a lot to know.”
NARO works in Washington, D.C., as well as all the state capitols to make sure mineral owners are represented and considered when new legislation affecting the industry is discussed. The Appalachian region of NARO consists of West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and North Carolina.
NARO was founded in 1981 and now has 11 chapters encompassing 19 states. NARO is the only national organization representing solely and without compromise, oil and gas royalty owners’ interests.
