We started in 1983 as management consultants under the name Soltero Oil Company, advising on the acquisition, syndication, operation and sale of producing oil and gas properties and exploratory prospects. In 1985 the company was reformed as Soltero Resources, Inc., in order to purchase and resell a tanker load of diesel fuel and organize and manage a syndicated purchase of a 10,000-acre producing oil and gas property in the Austin Chalk play of Brazos County, Texas from Phillips Petroleum. The project was successfully redeveloped using gas-lift increased recovery technology and ultimately sold to a large independent for horizontal drilling. Following the sale we changed our name to Cimarron Resources, Inc., and provided interim chief executive officer, chief operating officer and chief financial officer services for four different public petroleum companies.
In 2007, following the successful IPO of the fourth company, we exited the public company area, changed our name back to Soltero Resources, Inc. and re-entered the private oil and gas exploration and production business by organizing and investing in high-risk, potentially high return oil exploration ventures in the continental United States. We made a significant vertical well discovery in North Texas, drilled three development wells, purchased and re-entered two other wells, and put the property up for sale in mid-2017.
While winding down as operator we began providing due diligence evaluations of potential clients for a boutique investment bank seeking to connect management groups with private equity funds. This included financial and management analysis on a number of entities in petroleum exploration, production and refining as well as in real estate, resort development, healthcare and cryto-currency venture funding.
In the first quarter of 2018, we sold the North Texas oil property and decided to focus on private placement capital raising as an intermediary rather than as a principal. In the third quarter of 2018 we changed our name to Cimarron Capital, Inc., and began representing private companies raising start-up capital in healthcare, energy, and capital markets predictive analytics. We spent much of 2019 concentrating on predictive analytics in capital markets and decided in February 2020 to drop our broker-dealer affiliation and concentrate on our consulting practice.
Due to our experience and contacts throughout the years in the movement of crude oil, natural gas and petroleum products, we, from time to time, act as the principal in back-to-back transactions for cargoes of crude oil, LPG, diesel fuel and other petroleum products.
We advise qualified issuers about structuring and offering their private securities. We provide due diligence analysis of oil and gas companies for placement agents and investors seeking to either place or invest in oil and gas private securities.
