U.S. Emerald Energy is a Houston-based oil and gas production company that specializes in offering a unique type of investment vehicle to individual investors. Read on to find out why you should consider investing with U.S. Emerald Energy for oil and gas investments.
Rather than selling shares of stock in the company, U.S. Emerald Energy partners directly with investors in a joint venture to develop oil and gas reserves in the United States. This direct partnership structure ensures that U.S. Emerald Energy has a stake in every project and remains responsible to every investor. Both U.S. Emerald Energy and the investor contribute to making a project successful and each share in the profits realized from a productive oil or gas well. An investor can remain active in the project and may even visit the well during or after completion or act as a silent partner, gaining all of the benefits of the oil and gas investments with no further action required beyond the financial contribution to the project.
Modern oil and gas exploration requires high-tech equipment and expansive time and effort to find the most productive areas for locating a well. U.S. Emerald Energy employs advanced exploration methods, such as seismic testing and computerized subsurface modeling software, to ascertain the existence of underground oil and gas reserves prior to drilling. Partnering with U.S. Emerald Energy means that an investor can take advantage of research performed over nearly two decades in the oil and gas business.
Responsible Drilling Sites
Certain areas of the country have extensive oil and gas reserves. The areas where oil and gas reserves are known to exist have been categorized as “proven” reserves, while areas that have not been produced are considered “unproven.” Proven reserves are further broken down into developed (PD) and undeveloped (PUD) reserves. Some energy companies strike out into unproven, uncharted territory, but the results from drilling in unproven areas are mixed at best and often lead to disappointment for investors. Employing the advanced methods previously mentioned, U.S. Emerald Energy only locates new wells in areas considered to be PUDS, meaning that oil has been shown to exist in quantities sufficient to merit drilling but the area has not yet been fully developed.
General Benefits of Oil and Gas Investing
Aside from the care taken by U.S. Emerald Energy to wisely use the resources entrusted by individual investors, there are many benefits to investing in oil and gas production. The investment itself can be deducted on the investor’s federal tax return even if the well project is unsuccessful. Being able to deduct the full amount of the investment is a feature that is unique to oil and gas production and is allowed due to the importance of a reliable source of petroleum and natural gas to the American economy. In addition, 15 percent of the income drawn from a productive well is free from federal income taxes. Oil and gas well investing with U.S. Emerald Energy also helps create jobs for United States workers and promotes United States energy independence.
Making an investment in oil and gas production is a great way to receive a long-term income stream while also investing in the future of the United States. Visit the website today to find out more about how you can invest in oil and gas wells with U.S. Emerald Energy.
