Investing in Oil Drilling Operations

Why Consider Investing in Oil & Gas

Tax Incentives

Tax rules designed to encourage oil and gas production can make direct investment in oil and gas properties, rather than in marketable securities of oil and gas companies, an attractive option for many investors. Federal and state governments offer various tax deductions and credits to encourage investment in domestic energy production.

Portfolio Diversification

For investors looking for diversification, oil and gas offers a lucrative opportunity. With a variety of investment options, from traditional stocks to working partnerships, there’s a range of choice for an investor’s portfolio.

High ROI Potential

Oil and gas projects have the potential to yield high returns on investment that may exceed those historically achieved through traditional equity investments.

Tax Benefits for Investors

Investing in oil and gas can come with significant tax incentives provided by deductions and credits that have the potential to enhance investor returns.

Intangible drilling cost deductions (IDCs)

Section 263(c) of the tax code allows intangible drilling costs to be deducted from current year taxable income.

Tangible drilling cost deductions (TDCs)

Expenses associated with durable equipment and machinery can be depreciated over a seven-year period, leading to additional tax deductions.

Depletion allowance deductions

Acknowledges that an oil well's production gradually reduces over time. This allowance lets investors deduct a certain percentage of the income derived from the sale of the oil.

Percentage and excess depletion deductions

In the US, a smaller oil or gas company can qualify for a percentage depletion of 15% on the first 1000 barrels of daily production.

Additional potential tax credits

There are the potential for tax credits if an oil well provides marginal or low-output. These credits can help offset any loss due to the maintenance of these less productive wells.
