Oil and Gas Investing

RVC hosts its first Oil and Gas Investing Event

Some might say that oil and gas vs. venture capital investment deals are like oil and water - they're totally different.  They would be right in some ways - the risks and deal structures are totally different in oil and gas deals.  On the other hand, it costs about $1.5 million to drill an oil well and the returns are going to be somewhere between zero and 10X, so the return metrics and risks seem similar. When things go well, investors tend to know right away when streams of cash flow start.  When they go bad, there's no waiting five years to find out - you know you hit a dry hole right off the bat. .  

Oil and Gas has taken a hit this year with the price for a barrel of oil dropping by half.  Fracking was part of the cause of this, and may also help companies to produce enough oil to be profitable.  We'll talk about the environmental controversies with regard to fracking. Oil and Gas is an industry in mid-disruption which has created opportunities at the same time.  We will look at oil and gas software companies that can help to make marginally profitable operations work much more efficiently and other opportunities that make sense for investors regardless of the current swings in oil prices.

Join us to hear from industry experts and promising oil and gas and services companies at the RVC Oil and Gas Investing Event.
