Due to new drilling technologies developed in the energy industry in recent years, investment opportunities in mineral funds are highly sought-after. Their higher yield and comparatively low risk makes mineral funds an excellent addition to a diverse portfolio.
Access to investments in mineral funds is often restricted to Wall Street-level transactions with minimum investments of $500,000 or more, which locks out all but the super-rich private investor. Redhawk Investment Group is pleased to announce the opening of Redhawk Minerals Fund II at an affordable entry level as low as $12,500 (for a limited time).
This mineral fund offering, open to accredited investors only, provides the independent-minded, non-technical, non-super-rich investor a unique opportunity to realize the cash flow and wealth generation capability in the mineral ownership sector of the oil and gas industry.
What is Redhawk Minerals Fund II?
A strategic partnership between Redhawk Investment Group and the Mitchell Group, Redhawk Minerals Fund II targets the mineral-rich Oklahoma STACK Play. The fund is projected to raise $30 million and is priced at $50,000 per unit, with a proposed 1/4 unit investment minimum ($12,500) available for a limited time.
Similar investments are often limited to institutional investors, with average annual yields at a considerably lesser rate. This fund represents a promising investment consideration.
Redhawk Minerals Fund II acquires mineral rights from one to 36 months ahead of the drill bit, and exclusively in the Oklahoma STACK Play shale formation. This fund is a near mirror image of the previous Redhawk Minerals Fund I, which closed in February 2017 at $23.5 million. Fund I is outperforming our expectations, with more than 50 wells producing on its mineral acreage and pre-drill permitting on 62 units to date.
What Makes Mineral Funds a Wise Investment?
Often limited to ultra-wealthy investors only, mineral funds have become attractive investment vehicles for a number of individuals and institutions. This is not without valid reason. Owning stakes in mineral rights can generate revenue in a variety of ways.
The initial revenue generated by ownership of mineral rights is the lease bonus, or the lucrative, upfront cash bonus paid per acre by the operator to the mineral owner for leasing him or her the rights to drill. Mineral owners then also negotiate a monthly royalty percentage, typically ranging from 12.5 percent to 25 percent of gross revenue generated by the well(s). As with any real property right, a mineral rights owner may also elect to sell his or her interests to a buyer and may will them as well.
Many investors find these multiple streams of revenue particularly appealing. This is added to the fact that, unlike in drilling investments, mineral rights ownership requires no capital expenditure for drilling or operating. Mineral rights stakes also avoid the risk of "dry hole" costs incurred by drilling investments, and as real property rights, they never expire. If so desired, your investment in mineral rights can be handed down for generations to come.
Although there is an inherent degree of risk in any investment, mineral rights can prove a low-risk energy investment when executed properly. Mineral rights investing avoids the costs associated with drilling operations, and because royalties are paid before any other deductions, oil prices would need to drop to near zero for revenue to cease.
How to Choose a Good Mineral Fund
Investment in mineral funds, when managed properly, is comparatively low-risk. When considering a potential mineral fund investment, we suggest that you evaluate it in three areas:
Choosing Where to Invest in Mineral Funds
Of the two locations that we have identified, Redhawk Minerals Fund II deals exclusively with mineral properties located in the Oklahoma STACK Play. But what is the Oklahoma STACK Play?
The Oklahoma STACK Play, located in Oklahoma's Anadarko Basin, is a large area of stacked shale zones that are incredibly rich in oil reserves and oil condensate. Drilling is far from new to this zone, but excitement has re-centered on this hot spot in recent years due to the continued success of newer horizontal drilling technologies.
Areas with wells that were once thought depleted with the use of conventional drilling technologies are producing again with horizontal wells. In fact, in some cases, horizontal wells have produced 50 percent more oil than their vertical counterparts.
With this renewed success, drilling operations in the STACK Play are expanding rapidly. The number of rigs is increasing almost daily, with more than 100 currently in operation. Adding to the fact that the STACK Play is located near the major oil storage facilities and trading hub in Cushing, OK, it becomes easy to see why investment in oil assets in the area is so profitable. Even when oil prices are low, the lower costs associated with these ventures results in a higher ROI. That's music to any investor's ears.
How Do I Become an Accredited Investor?
You can count on Redhawk to guide you through the accreditation process to become an accredited investor. It’s a secure and simple process. According to Regulation D rules, an individual qualifies as an accredited investor if he or she meets one of the following criteria:
As required by the SEC, it is incumbent upon the company with whom an investor elects to do business to verify their qualification as being accredited. Accredited status is warranted through a review of the investors' financial documentation. Documentation can include W-2s, bank or brokerage statements, tax returns or a simple form filled out by your licensed financial professional (CPA, attorney, broker-dealer, etc.). Redhawk will guide you through the process step-by-step.
