What are the Top Concerns When Considering an Oil Investment?

There are several concerns that investors will have when they wish to begin oil investing. Addressing these concerns can help put investors at ease when they are considering making oil and gas investments.

The biggest concern investors will have is the reputation of the company they are using. People want their investments to be successful and profitable. The only way to see success is by relying upon a reputable company that has over 20 years of success when it comes to oil investing.

Potential investors can rely upon the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or the Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) for help finding information about a company’s reputation. These organizations can help investors find out how long a company has been operating, if any complaints have been filed, and other important business information that can determine how reputable a company is when it comes to oil investments.

Another concern when people are considering making an oil well investment is the viability of the particular well. Potential investors should consider a company that focuses on developing wells with 3D seismic technology, as this will help increase the chance that the well be successful. Contact us at U.S. Emerald Energy, Inc. to discuss these and other concerns about investing in oil wells.

What Starting Capital Do I Need Begin Oil Investing?

We recommend investing no more than 10% of liquid assets in gas or oil drilling. This recommendation is made because of the huge risk that is involved with these types of investments. While there is often a good chance for success, some investments are not successful. Investing no more than 10% of liquid assets keeps that risk low, while giving investors the opportunity to find a successful investment opportunity.

The amount required to begin investing in gas or oil drilling will vary depending upon the project. Some projects only require a small investment of $6,000, while others may require a larger amount that is closer to $25,000. Contact us at U.S. Emerald Energy, Inc. to discuss what may be required to start the oil investing process.

When Investing in Oil What Happens if You Have a Dry Hole?

A dry hole is when a well has been drilled for oil or gas, but none is present. In the event that this should happen, investors can expect to lose a small portion of their invested funds but not all of it. The funds will not all be lost because a dry hole will be considered an actively deducted tax write-off.

In addition to the ability to write off the dry hole as a tax write-off, the investor will receive a partial refund or not be obligated to pay completion funds for the project. This will allow the investor to get some of their money back. Contact us at U.S. Emerald Energy, Inc. to ask any questions that may come up regarding dry holes and oil investing.


Why Are So Many People Investing In Oil?

    Published by US Emerald Energy

    Oil is what makes the world go round. While there’s been increasing interest in alternative energies, there’s no denying that oil is, and will remain, the energy kingpin for many years to come.

    Petroleum is a high-demand good that’s utilized in a great variety of industries. This ubiquity is a part of the reason why many people choose to invest in oil. But other great oil investing incentives include:

    • Diversification  Oil investing has historically provided a great diversifier against the general economy. Economies tend to slow down the more that gas prices rise, which can cause the rest of your investments and funds to falter. But when oil and other petroleum prices rise, those stocks also rise. This means that you can help insulate and protect your whole portfolio from potential economic slowdowns by investing in oil.
    • Big profit potential  This is especially true if you invest in smaller oil companies and limited partnerships that have the potential for big pay offs. Even just a single drilled well can generate huge returns when it hits oil; a good well can pay huge dividends for decades into the future.
    • Tax advantages  Oil investing has unique tax advantages that aren’t available elsewhere. For example, income from oil and gas wells that is held either directly or through a general partnership isn’t considered income from a passive activity, and every dollar invested in Intangible Drilling Costs (IDC) is a dollar an investor can count toward deduction to offset active or ordinary incomes like salaries and commissions.
