Greece’s government announced a referendum on Sunday and shut down its banking system to help it try and resolve the five year long debt crisis the country has faced. The effects of this are still uncertain. Many are predicting Greece will finally leave the Eurozone and others are saying this will challenge the ability for the Euro to remain a common currency throughout the European Union. If Greece does exit the Union then there is a fear of their exit having a cascade effect on other weak countries such as Spain, Portugal and Italy. The announcement from the Greek government sent shockwaves through the global economy causing all the markets to open lower than they closed the day before.
Many are concerned over what effects a Greek exit from the Eurozone will have and the damage it could cause to the global economy. Despite this uncertainty causing a decrease in the value of stock markets around the world there are still stable investments out there. One of the most stable investments available right now is oil. As such, Southern Energy Group, Inc. (SEG) has continued to expand their oil well holdings. They acquired a 20% stake in the AJ Carter, NJ Carter and Warnicke-Joslin Leases located in Guadalupe County, Texas. A geological engineering company, Geologic, evaluated the leases and announced the potential for oil production is considerable.
They are saying the multi-well re-stimulation of the 45 wells in several reservoirs will eventually lead to approximately 3,935,000 BO. This is a lot of oil and this is just one of many leases acquired by Southern Energy Group recently. While the stock markets around the world are shifting and struggling, the reality on the ground is people everywhere are gaining access to new standards of living, particularly in Africa and Asia. As this continues the demand for energy will rise and the value of resources such as oil and natural gas will rise along with the demand.
Fortunately, for many investors the cost of investing in domestic oil wells right now is very low due to the recent advances in technology which have yielded us with fracking. This has provided America with a glut in available oil, but the current surplus of oil will not last indefinitely. If you’re looking for an investment that will grow over time and provide you with solid returns in the future when you’re considering retirement then domestic oil is one of the safest bets. Investing in domestic oil is also has better tax benefits than many other investments which means less of your money is being siphoned off by the government.
Stability in the Middle East continues to be an elusive wish which will apparently take longer than many had hoped. ISIS is continuing to gain ground with the recent capture of Ramadi in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria. Many had thought that ISIS would be more quickly put down especially given the recent wave of air strikes being carried out against them. These two victories for them bode poorly for the future of eradicating ISIS and returning stability to the region. With this lack of stability will come a number of other issues.
One of the biggest issues is the oil fields and the means for exporting oil out of the country. Since ISIS’s rise they have captured numerous oil fields and have gained control over routes used for exporting oil. This has made oil exports from this area unreliable and anyone who had an investment here is losing millions on a weekly basis. Meanwhile, in America we are experiencing a resurgence in oil and natural resource drilling thanks in part to improved technology. With growing oil demands’ cropping up across the world, particularly in Asia and instability in the Middle East the price of oil is going to continue rising.
This is one of the reasons Southern Energy Group is continuing to expand their holdings by acquiring the Cude “D” Lease in Caldwell County, Texas. Not only is this a safe and guaranteed investment, but it will add greatly to the company’s long-term growth with extremely limited risk. This adds value to the company and for all of their partners. For those looking for safe long term investments the time for investing domestically again has come. Investing in domestic natural gas and oil production provides investors not only with safety, but also less taxes on their returns.
The world has become a lot more treacherous in the last decade or so due to territorial disputes in Asia, government collapses in the Middle East and aggression from Russia in Europe. We are fortunate in America to not have such troubles. We are also seeing a great deal of quantitative easing happening across the world which may have positive or negative impacts on the economy, but it will definitely cause uncertainty in the stock markets. Fortunately, natural resources are a good which are always needed, so concern of them suddenly dropping and never going back up is not needed. It’s time for the American people to show the world it’s true capabilities again and one of the best methods for doing that is by investing in ourselves.
Investing is a tricky business. Many people want to invest their money rather than have it sit in a bank gaining nearly zero percent interest. The problem is finding the right investments which is challenging in the current economic environment. The stock market is on its way up right now, but not every stock is always going up, and there is always the game of trying to buy in at a low point during the day and not the high point. Then, you have to ask yourself when you will sell that stock. If you hold onto it too long it could drop below what you originally purchased it for, but if you sell it too soon you may lose out on value.
One investment that is secure and will steadily gain value over time is American oil and natural gas. Southern Energy Group (SEG) recently purchased the Cude “B” lease in Caldwell County, Texas. This lease has wells producing in the Austin Chalk and Dale Lime reservoirs. These wells are a part of the greater Buchanan Field which is a section of the gargantuan Luling-Branyon oil field. These wells are located along the ascent side of the Luling-Branyon Fault which is ideal because this location means the wells will be more productive allowing Southern Energy Group to maximize their returns on development.
Southern Energy Group’s aim is to acquire strategically sound leases that contain wells with plentiful reserves. They have the knowledge and experience to increase the production of these reserves as they develop these leases. Due to the ever-increasing demand of oil and natural gas worldwide, Southern Energy Group believes that this development strategy will prove fruitful in the long-term growth of the company and its investors with limited risk. For investors who are struggling to find a long-term investment option outside of the stock market, this is one of the best available options.
In addition to the knowledge that oil and natural gas will continue to grow in demand, there is legislation which was passed a couple decades ago which makes much of the returns on investments in American carbon reserves tax free. This allows investors to not only earn money but also be assured that their investment won’t be taxed to oblivion when they need it. Southern Energy Group is based out of Tennessee with operations primarily in Texas. The company has over five decades worth of experience in geological survey and oil drilling and development. Their goal is to continue finding productive assets which will add major value to the company and its partners.
The economic recession of 2008 hit all of us hard. The climb back out of this recession has been slow and painful as well. Fortunately the stock market has fought its way back up and is doing quite well, but investing there isn’t for everyone and stocks still get taxed too. Many people are exhausted with taxes and feel like they aren’t getting what they should for how much they have to pay. Others would simply like to have a place to invest in which will be secure and guaranteed to grow in the long run and not have a sizable chunk lost when they receive dividends or decide to divest.
One of the best sectors to invest in at this point in time turns out to be in domestic oil and gas. Many might say that is absurd considering the dropping rates of a barrel of oil and the filling of America’s oil reserve containers. However, that is simply because they are looking at the past six months and only the near future. Demand for oil and gas is still increasing, and will continue to increase for many years to come as large countries like China and India continue to develop. The millions of people living in these countries who are having their standard of living increased will need energy.
The best part of investing in domestic oil and gas though is your investments are tax free. The U.S. Congress passed the Tax Reform Act in 1986 and in the act it made direct investment in domestic gas and oil not classified as “Passive Income”. That’s not all though, there are equipment depreciation tax deductibles available and a depletion allowance as well which makes 15 cents of every dollar non-taxable – this means its tax-sheltered income. Investing in domestic gas and oil through a company such as Southern Energy Group can provide you with all the information you want to know about this kind of investment and will ensure that you make the most out of your money.
When we look at the facts and over a longer period of time it’s easy to see that the cost of oil will eventually begin to climb back up. If you’re looking for an investment that you can put your money into and will begin showing its worth both now and later in the future then consider investing in domestic oil and gas. Unlike stocks in a single company you won’t have to worry about it suddenly going under – people will always need energy and your investments won’t be taxed so heavily that you’re left with only a fraction of what you deserve. Lastly, investing in our own country helps provide jobs at home.
