Founded in 2009 by Brandt Temple, the Sunrise business model is centered around acquiring leases and minerals ahead of the curve based on geology, geophysics, and timely scout information. We pride ourselves in taking early-stage risk, and this exploration philosophy naturally lends itself to developing meaningful relationships with the people and companies we acquire oil and gas rights from. Treating these people as partners produces an exciting dynamic where we work together to solve problems and ensure that oil and gas are developed in a safe, timely manner.
