Joint Venture Partners

Helping Canada's oil & gas companies
meet the challenges of the rising cost of capital


Oil & Gas companies have been facing the following challenges:



  The latest horizontal drilling technologies produce much more oil & gas but are also much more expensive to drill than conventional vertical wells.



  Managing capital costs to generate return, meet corporate strategy plans and enhance returns.  



  Finding ways to keep excessive bank debt off their books to maintain a strong balance sheet.  



  Looking for a non-dilutive solution to assist them in completing their production programs and growing asset values.



   Growing production with limited or restricted capital.  


Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalty Income programs provide much needed capital
for oil & gas companies on better terms than those typically available
through the markets or banks.


Enhanced IRR and Improved Capital Efficiency

Having a financial partner, such as Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalty Income programs can improve the rate of return of projects for the oil & gas companies as the operator spends disproportionately less of their capital in return for a lesser amount of "top-line revenues". The oil & gas companies enhanced IRR makes every dollar of capital more efficient.


Capital Without Loss of Control

The capital from Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalty Income programs allows the oil & gas companies to retain control of their programs without interference from a working interest partner.


No Loss of Gross Reserves

The operator is able to book 100% of the gross reserves versus booking a lesser amount of net working interest reserves, subject only to modest over-riding royalty.


Non-Competitive Financial Partner

Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalty Income programs can be considered a financial partner rather than a directly competitive industry partner, and will not be viewed as a threat to the operator's proprietary ideas and development or exploration programs. 


CAPPEX Budget Accelerator

The additional development capital from Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalties frees up money that the oil & gas companies can utilize on higher impact exploration projects while at the same time ensures that development projects are funded and brought to market on schedule. The expanded CAPPEX budget through the Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalty Income joint venture financing program allows oil & gas companies to maintain operating momentum with respect to growing reserves and production through the drill bit.



Joint ventures financing programs like that offered by Maple Leaf Oil & Gas Royalties allow oil & gas companies to access the capital necessary to fund CAPPEX budgets without having to issue shares at current market prices (which, in the view of many oil & gas executives, are currently significantly undervalued).
