Diversified Oil & Gas Portfolio

Add Diversification To Your Portfolio with Target Returns of 20%+

OVERVIEW

Aspen Energy Fund VI is a diversified Oil & Gas portfolio. This Fund will be focusing on investing in a combination of existing producing assets for current cash flow (PDP) along with acreage for new drilling for upside value (PUD). We’ll be targeting multiple basins.

The Fund will generally be focused on investing in non-operating working interests (“NOWI”) and overriding royalty interests (“ORRI”). This reduces operational risk but gives the opportunity to participate in new drilling programs.

INVESTMENT BENEFITS

OPPORTUNITY

  • We believe now is an opportune time to acquire direct interests in oil and gas plays to position long-term for favorable economic fundamentals
  • Many large banks & funds are predicting higher oil prices over the next decade due to limited supply and increasing demand
  • Market currently isn’t pricing in this upside and because of the ESG initiatives, many large capital allocators have left the space

STRATEGY

  • Partner with long-time manager & engineering firm with over 40 years experience, and a 5-project track record
  • Directly invest in diversified portfolio of producing oil & gas plays in proven basins + strategically participate in new drilling programs for upside
  • Acquisition targets will primarily be NOWI & ORRI alongside large operators

FUND STRATEGY

BUY EXISTING PRODUCTION.

  • Fund will target acquisition of existing, producing wells at a good value either through NOWI or ORRI
  • As focus of Fund will be on maximizing total return, we will prioritize projects that have strong potential of PUD projects

PARTICIPATE IN NEW DRILLING

  • As a direct investor of the working interests, our Fund will have the right to participate in new drilling programs proposed by operators
  • Our team of geologists and engineers will review every proposed well and decide if we will participate
  • We have the right to participate, but not the requirement

MAXIMIZE VALUE & TOTAL RETURN

  • Fund’s mandate is to maximize total return to the investors
  • We expect 100% of year-1 cash flow (and partial reinvestment thereafter) to be reinvested into new drilling programs
  • By reinvesting cash flow from Fund into new wells, we can compound returns and maximize cash flow & sale value

Operating Working Interest: an interest in an oil or gas property through an operating agreement, lease, fee title, or another arrangement. The owner must pay part of the expense of the property’s operating costs, including drilling, leasing, and operating oil and gas wells. In addition, the working interest owner is entitled to a percentage of the oil and gas revenue.

Non-Operating Working Interest: refers to an interest in an oil and gas property that does not participate in the day-to-day operations of drilling, testing, completion, and maintenance of the production or the sale of the minerals produced. Unlike royalty interests, non-operating working interest must pay a portion of the costs associated with the day-to-day operation of the well, but also is entitle to a percentage of the oil & gas revenue.

Overriding Royalty Interest: a property interest that entitles the owner to receive a share of the production revenue. A royalty interest owner doesn’t pay for operational costs required to produce the resource, though they still are entitled to a portion of the revenue produced. A royalty interest exists as long as the company leases the land and continues drilling.

No. Investors in this Fund will be part owners of the Fund shares and thereby a portion of all assets owned in the Fund. Based on the strategy of the Fund it is anticipated there will be numerous wells, basins, & operators in the assets creating a diversified portfolio.

The Fund will focus on investing in a combination of multiple existing producing assets for current cash flow (PDP) along with acreage for new drilling for upside value (PUD). The Fund will generally be focused on investing in non-operating working interests (“NOWI”) and overriding royalty interests (“ORRI”). This reduces operational risk but gives the opportunity to participate in new drilling programs.

Yes. However, the 116 Upstream Energy Fund VI, LP is primarily focused on maximizing shareholder returns vs. primarily generating tax losses. As such, while we anticipate tax advantages to be passed through to the limited partners, our goal will be to make acquisitions first based on investor overall returns. Oil and gas investments generally offering tax advantages through depreciation, depletion, and intangible drilling costs.

Investors may elect to take part in either the GP side offering advantages toward active income or the LP side offering advantages toward passive income. It must be noted, taking part in the GP comes with additional risks.

Yes, our funds allow investment through qualified retirement money. This must be done through a self-directed IRA or 401K. If you don’t yet have a self-directed account, we can make introductions to several custodians that we have worked with.

Additionally, some funds implement leverage leading to the possibility of generating Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT). We would ask that investors speak with their tax professional about potential implications.

Yes, our funds currently only allow accredited investors.

  • an individual with a net worth exceeding $1 million, excluding the primary residence, either individually or jointly with his or her spouse;

I'm an accounting professor and real estate investor. In the past, I have not had much free time to oversee my portfolio. In early 2014, Bob Fraser contacted me to tell me about Aspen. I am impressed with the Aspen team. I will be investing more funds with Aspen as I liquidate my real estate investments.
