Today’s Unique Opportunity

Rig Count

Oil Price Correlation Breaks Down in 2021


Strong Supply & Demand Outlook

Low Capital Has Starved Supply

Historically, drillers would chase higher oil prices with more drilling rigs. In today’s capital starved market, high oil prices no longer draws more rigs. According to Rystad research, the industry has lost almost $300 billion of E&P investment since 2020, translating into ~6.3 million barrels per day of lost production by 2025.

Demand Continues to Increase

Meanwhile, the EIA projects new record highs in global oil demand by 2022. If this scenario holds, and supply constraints remain in place, the world faces a structurally undersupplied market going forward.


Surges to Highest Level Since 2008


The Other Asset Classes

High Valuations

Record high valuations across stocks, bonds and real estate suggest poor future returns in the face of oil's capital starvation, creating the best buyer’s market for energy assets in our lifetime.

Increasing Inflation

With inflation exceeding 5%, most traditional asset classes suffer negative earnings yields while direct oil and gas investing offers compelling returns and inflation-protection.

A Message From Our CEO, Laura Pommer

In 2018, I fulfilled a lifetime dream - founding an oil and gas company. I walked away from that dream to lead the EnergyFunders organization. Leaving behind a generous pay package and $75 million in backing from a prestigious private equity fund was no easy decision. Here’s why I did it…

The Traditional Energy Funding Model Is Broken.

The fundamental problem: a long line of fees, expenses and promotion structures standing between investors and well-head economics. Meanwhile, in both public and private investment vehicles, the industry suffers from chronic mis-alignment of incentives between capital providers and capital allocators. I saw these conflicts firsthand, both on the public side of the market at Anadarko, and from the inside of my own private oil and gas company.

In private markets, billions in cheap capital poured into overpriced acreage, with the aim of flipping undeveloped acreage to a higher bidder down the road. This game only works until the music stops playing, as we’ve seen in recent years. Meanwhile, investor dollars passed through multiple organizational layers before ever getting to the wellhead – accruing fees at both the asset management level and operator level. By the time investors realize the true value of what they own, the management fees have already been paid, often revealing lackluster returns after the fact.

In public markets, the C-suite and corporate board members design their own compensation packages. The all-too common result: bloated G&A budgets and lucrative bonus packages - often financed via shareholder dilution - regardless of the returns generated for equity investors.

I had not previously invested in Oil & Gas projects but was particularly impressed with this company and the way they have simplified Oil & Gas investing and made it more accessible and practical to incorporate into a broader portfolio. I have been investing with them for several years now and am so glad I found them.
