South Coast will be hosting several meetings with Mewbourne Oil Company during the month of July highlighting tax-advantaged investment strategies in the energy sector.
Investing in the energy sector can be complex, since the industry spans from companies that drill for oil to renewable businesses, which focus on wind and solar power generation. The evaluation of energy companies is also broad. For instance, the exploration and production of crude oil companies include those in the upstream, downstream and midstream sectors. Tax incentives available for certain types of investments must be taken into account.
Mewbourne Oil Company has tremendous insight into the energy space as the 5th largest private oil and gas producer in the country operating out of the Permian and Anadarko Basins of Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
Oil is arguably the most important global commodity as it fuels global trade and most global transportation. While it seems as though the oil boom in the US is just getting started, OPEC has found itself stuck in the mud. Just within the last few years, the shale oil revolution has made the United States the world’s leading producer of oil in 2019, surpassing both Saudi Arabia and Russia (Texas alone is expected to soon top 5 million barrels per day in oil production, more than any OPEC member other than Saudi Arabia). On the other hand, OPEC supply has hit a 5 year low as the cartel tries to put a floor on prices, a complete 180 from its strategy of flooding the market with supply back in 2014.
Demand continues to drive the ferocious US energy expansion. According to the 2019 EIA’s forecast, global oil consumption is anticipated to rise to 102.56 million barrels per day in 2020 (a 1.4 million barrel increase, year over year). There is a reason US companies continue to go after market share. Saudi Aramco, the national petroleum and natural gas company owned by the government of Saudi Arabia, remained the world’s most profitable company in 2018, posting a net income of $111 billion.
