What if the oil and gas industry could find capital without giving up large chunks of equity, dancing to a banker's tune or having to go out and raise capital in non-conventional methods?
What if the price of oil didn't play havoc with every financing decision made? Who can call the floor on prices? Oil executives are handcuffing themselves to believe that higher prices are coming, try to second guess the market and are hamstrung by the proverbial 'paralysis by analysis.'
What if we didn't see the decline in prices impacted by computer-driven models? What if the true value of oil and gas were represented by real time trading and fundamental factors versus declines that were more technical in nature?
What if producers that have capital needs could have their production bought over a three to four year time frame and have that oil or gas paid for up front to generate the much needed capital they seek?
What if there would be someone out there to absorb this 'time-risk' for a term and get the producer the money they need for re-works, PUD drilling, debt pay-down etc.?
What if the producer had the capability of getting this capital off balance sheet, non-recourse, no debt and no equity relinquishment? What if there were tax benefits thrown in as well?
What if the producer maintains total control and participates in 100% of the upside by using this capital?
What if the biggest risk in the transaction was delivery risk?
What if the capital was easy to access and could close the transactions in 45 days or less?
What if we talk about this?
