Albuquerque, NM (PressExposure) April 01, 2011 -- OilandGasPartnerships.net, a resource providing reliable information about the oil and gas industry to qualified investors, has discovered that there are several reasons why sophisticated investors may be able to benefit from the increased awareness surrounding peak oil.
OilandGasPartnerships.net is predicting that the increased awareness of peak oil acts as an economic catalyst that affects the demand for oil and gas, thereby driving up the prices. Such a catalyst can increase the opportunity for sophisticated investors interested in investing in oil and gas through a Direct Participation Program (DPP).
Peak oil awareness will most likely have a positive affect on all types of oil and gas investing due to the impact the awareness has on supply and demand.
OilandGasPartnerships.net reveals a number of considerations that make Direct Participation Programs a compelling investment option for many oil and gas investors, primarily attributed to the significant incentives offered by the U.S. government to promote such investment. Peak oil awareness had a double effect on the opportunities available to sophisticated and well qualified oil and gas investors. First, it the increased awareness of peak oil creates a reactionary environment in which foreign and domestic oil sources increase prices in anticipation of increased demand, which creates a sense of scarcity. Second, the increased prices heighten sensitivities regarding reliance on foreign oil and gas, and the government feels increased pressure to reduce that reliance by discovering and developing additional domestic sources.
Exploring, developing, and establishing domestic oil and gas facilities requires an enormous amount of money. Jean Paul Getty, American Industrialist and Founder of the Getty Oil Company reminds, "There are always opportunities through which businessmen can profit handsomely if they will only recognize and seize them." The payoff alone from investing in a successful well is enticing for many oil and gas investors, but for those qualified investors considering a Direct Participation Program, the government provides additional incentives to further incentivize domestic oil and gas production. Because oil and gas investing conducted through Direct Participation Programs allow the investor to own a portion of the well, the investor gains access to unique tax and income incentives provided by the IRS that are often referred to as the "last legal loophole" in the tax system.
