As one of the leading oil & gas investment companies in Texas, our team currently evaluates Oil & Gas projects from seasoned operators in the lower 48 States and Canada. Each project is selected through a process that focuses on and looks for ROI as well as certain niche plays other firms might overlook while following the herd mentality of the energy business. Viper Capital Partners relies on its internal team with over 50 years of Oil & Gas experience to select solid and worthwhile opportunities for capital formation and participation.
It is important to partner with an established and reputable oil exploration and investment company, such as Viper Capital Partners, because the oil industry is volatile and complex.
Oil will continue to provide the bulk of the world’s energy needs into 2050 and the United States along with its oil producers and partners will lead the way in meeting this demand.
What are the Tax Deductions for Oil Investments?
Oil investors receive an allocation of Intangible Drilling Costs (IDC), which includes everything except the actual drilling equipment. These expenses are deductible in the year incurred. Oil Investors can deduct tangible drilling costs, those costs directly related to the cost of the drilling equipment, as long as they are depreciated over seven years.
Is a Royalty Interest or Working Interest Better?
A royalty interest means you lease rather than sell your mineral rights to the land. You don’t have any control over the drilling or exploration process, but you also won’t have to worry about any liability or maintaining equipment. A working interest has a greater chance for financial gain than a royalty interest. Investing in wells currently in production is safer than exploratory drilling.
