A look into potential oil and gas takeovers in 2017

A new year always signifies the dawn of business opportunities. In the oil and gas industry, the prospects for potential takeovers are set off. Recent years have been unkind to the market; with various political junctions and new frontiers for energy exploration at the back burner, industry analysts are adopting an optimistic stance about 2017.

The end of 2016 saw a surge in deal activity, mostly among private companies. Some mid-sized publicly traded companies foresee stronger growth at the beginning of 2017. Additionally, these mid-sized companies are strategically placed in core areas such as the Permian, Anadarko, and Appalachian Basins. Some even have stakes in the Bakken and Niobrara areas. Such existing circumstances will play a role in evolving the oil and gas industry, particularly as demand for cheaper, more efficient yet lucrative mines is peaking.

Of particular interest are companies able to integrate their systems into an online environment. Cloud computing technology is a rapidly growing trend, and many oil and gas companies are migrating processes previously handled by significant portions of their workforce into the cloud. This shrinks the pool of employees, thereby lessening expenses. But it also expands market reach toward other parts of the world.

Globalization is not a new topic, but oil and gas companies are awakening to its impact and seeming inevitability. It has never been more important for businesses to achieve real-time interactions among themselves in critical moments.

Mid-sized companies are slated to be part of the expected takeover round during the first quarter of 2017.

How To Invest In Oil And Gas Assets


It is reasonable to suggest that the oil and gas industry is a robust and growing sector of society. Modern communities operate on this natural resource. That said, the stock market is an interesting arena to consider when attempting to strengthen one’s portfolio. The conservative investor would go for more traditional funds such as real estate. But those who prefer a more high-yielding but admittedly riskier investment can choose oil and gas assets.

There are ways to mitigate the risks involved. The most important factor is knowing the different ways one can invest in oil and gas. A few of them are detailed below.

Mutual funds: This is the "safest" option in that one can buy shares in oil-focused mutual funds. This gives the investor direct access or exposure to the commodity without having the associated risks involved. This is relatively straight-forward, however. Depending on how much mutual fund is invested in, so too does the range of how much income can be potentially generated.

Large cap socks: This is the standard way to invest; buying stock in publicly-traded companies. The most obvious would be Exxon-Mobile, but there are other companies to consider. One can directly buy these commodities of through American Depository Receipts (ADRs) via a broker.

Limited partnerships: On the other hand, an investor can take a sounder position in a smaller company. These are called micro-cap stock. These limited partnerships typically focus more on oil and gas drilling and investing. Since most of these companies are not publicly traded, it is best to speak with the management directly or set a deal with a broker.

Understanding these trading options will provide a lucrative opportunity for those who wish to invest in oil and gas.

A Brief History Of The Oil Industry In Kansas

It was 1915 when the discovery of natural oil sources in Kansas caused its first oil boom. Almost a century later, in 2012, the state again experienced another oil boom. In the state’s southern border, what used to be land used for farming has been transformed for the oil and gas industry. The recent oil boom opened up jobs for both residents and non-residents.

With technologies like horizontal drilling and fracking, finding resources in the Mississippian Limestone formation didn’t take as long as when oil was first discovered in the state. JBH Consulting Group with their vast networks has invested in future ventures in the state, particularly in Ness and Rush Counties.

Now that the industry in Kansas is settling down for a bit to prepare for another boom, investment opportunities are still available for those who want to wait for the development of this local industry in the next couples of years. As Kansas is known to be one of the principal sources of petroleum in the U.S., investing in drilling wells in the state seems to be a good option for those who want a different investment. Unlike other endeavors, oil and gas investments entail risks but come with higher incentives.
