Lane M. Fort
Lane was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas, where he entered the oil and gas business in early 2012 working as an independent landman. With determination, he quickly advanced his knowledge of the land profession and by late 2016 was a partner at the brokerage firm he had been associated with for nearly 5 years prior.
In 2018, Lane made the decision to start a new land company with a new vision. Shortly thereafter, he founded Fort Petroleum with the ambition to be a highly trusted and preferred land service provider headquartered in the heart of the most prolific basin in the U.S.
Lane lives in Midland, Texas with his wife, Neeley, and their three children. He is a Registered Professional Landman and active member of the American Association of Professional Landmen, Permian Basin Landman’s Association and Permian Basin Petroleum Association.
