The Oil and Gas arena is booming, and Lafayette Energy Corp. is the newest company to make its Wall Street debut, bringing to the table acreage that has years of PROVEN production in MULTIPLE zones.

Company Overview

Lafayette Energy Corp. is a  Denver, CO based Oil and Gas exploration company focused on developing its large 64,000 acre core project in Louisiana.

    The project is located in the Saint Landry Parish, South Louisiana In the updip Frio & along the oil rich Sparta-Wilcox trend. There are industry leaders nearby & producing wells on and around the project.

    Phase 1 of project resource estimates are 848.49 BCF and 81.930 MMBO!

    The Company plans to use the proceeds from its IPO toward the development of Phase 1 which comprises the northern 32,000 acres of the Imperial Parish Field. The Imperial Parish Fields have five proven reservoirs, or zones, including the Frio, Cockfield, Sparta, upper and lower Wilcox zones. All five zones have historically produced significant oil and gas by other operators through legacy traditional wells. The Company believes, based on the results of a 3-D shoot that was made of an adjacent area, that there is a highly prospective target in the deeper Tertiary and Cretaceous zones.

    Based on the well results of the first four wells, the Company plans to drill two additional wells each quarter with the next six wells being called the 2nd Drilling Phase. The Company expects wells in the 2nd Drilling Phase can be completed with more efficiency allowing for the potential to complete the 2nd Drilling Phase within 18 months following the closing of its IPO.


    Project Exploration and Development Program

    Two-Stage 3-D Seismic Program: 

    • Each phase is ~50 sq miles (~130 sq km)
    • 3-D Seismic Permits already acquired by the company's team. US Army Corp of Engineers Permits issued to Company on July 25, 2022.
    • 3-D data will identify target drilling locations by defining structures and amplitudes for all objectives and relief features that could lead to field extensions or new fields.

    Drill Program:

    • Specific target prospects will be selected after interpreting 3-D data. This will support the potential to drill a significant number of new successful wells through better defined hydrocarbon traps.

    All growth is expected to be strategically funded by Cash Flow with an anticipated $10M Reserve-Based Lending Facility. This means MINIMAL DEBT is required to execute the company’s growth plans!

    Dear Investors,

    Renewable energy is making inroads, but the global economy still relies heavily on petroleum products. Reports of the death of fossil fuel companies are greatly exaggerated….

    Brutally high oil and gas prices were the talk of the town in 2022. While the S&P 500 was down more than 17% last year, shares of Exxon, Halliburton and Chevron were all up more than 45%. 

    Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the global supply of fossil fuels has been disrupted and caused oil and gas shortages worldwide.

    Oil and gas giants have quietly enjoyed unprecedented record profits. 

    People across the United States have seen gas prices as high as $6 per gallon—stretching budgets thin. This, however, has helped oil giants rake in money, lining their shareholders’ pockets with profits

    The rising prices and continued robust demand of oil and natural gas make this a great time to take a closer look at Lafayette Energy Corp., which may be on the verge of discovering an oil reserve right on U.S. soil!

    The TOP 10 Reasons to Have Lafayette Energy Corp. on Your Radar:

    1. The company has an enormous amount of ground to explore with 64,000 acres of proven acreage in Louisiana, one of the top ten oil-producing states in the United States.
    2. 5 target zones have ALL BEEN PROVEN with traditional drilling.
    3. The acreage has never had 3-D seismic drilling, which potentially means significant reservoirs and structures could be identified for superior drilling results.
    4. 3-D seismic Permits were already issued by the US Army Corp of Engineers on July 25, 2022. This means the company has the green light to start 3-D seismic drilling.
    5. There are industry majors producing in adjacent, on-strike, and trend formations. This includes Conoco Philips,
    6. 35 miles SE of the company's project is a single well in Tuscaloosa Sand that is producing 1.2 BCF monthly with 107 BCF to date! With such success nearby, Lafayette Energy could potentially be sitting on a significant  discovery.
    7. The O&G industry will likely enter 2023 with its healthiest balance sheet yet and with continued capital discipline according to Deloitte.
    8. The company has a strong management, development, and operations team with decades of experience in Louisiana.
    9. CEO Michael Peterson is a proven leader backed by experience that includes working at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch. He has managed over a $7B asset portfolio and raised $100M when he built his first company and took it public! Peterson is now aiming to propel Lafayette Energy Corp. to the forefront of the massive O&G industry.
    10. Strong bench on the management team and board of directors to support and complement Mr. Peterson’s experience.

    The Louisiana Opportunity

    The first oil well in Louisiana was drilled in 1901… since then, the state has become a prolific energy producer.

    With over 28,000 active wells, 9% of U.S. marketed gas production, and over 600 industry operators, Louisiana consistently ranks among the top oil and gas producers in the nation. 

    The state is a “launching point” for the offshore oil and gas industry, and has played a vital role in American energy security

    Louisiana Quick Facts

    • Louisiana ranks third in natural gas production and proved reserves among the states. Louisiana accounts for about 9% of U.S. total marketed natural gas production and holds about 8% of the nation's natural gas reserves.
    • Louisiana's 14 oil refineries account for nearly one-fifth of the nation's refining capacity and can process about 3.2 million barrels of crude oil per day.
    • In 2021, Louisiana shipped 52% of the nation's liquefied natural gas exports and about 13% of its coal exports. 
    • Louisiana's total energy consumption ranks fourth among the states and its per capita energy consumption is second, largely because of its energy-intensive chemical, petroleum, and natural gas industries.
    • Louisiana has the second-highest per capita residential sector electricity consumption in the nation.

    The Energy Sector is Shining

    2022 witnessed skyrocketing gas prices at the pumps. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions that it sparked on Russian oil sent the price of crude soaring even in the U.S.

    By June 2022, the average US gas price crossed $5 a gallon for the first time ever, hitting a record $5.02 on June 14th.

    “Companies have pristine balance sheets, there’s very little near-term debt risk, and [they] are . . . moving forwards towards a net-cash position” while offering bumper dividends and share buyback programmes, said Matt Portillo, head of research at TPH&Co, an investment bank. “In a recessionary environment, that’s a great spot to be in.” 

    The advance in crude prices as a result of the war in Ukraine had boosted the sector, with US oil and gas companies recording a whopping $200bn in net profits in the two quarters following Russia’s full-scale invasion.

    Heavy Insider Ownership

    High insider ownership typically signals confidence in a company's prospects and ownership in its shares. This, in turn, gives the company's management an incentive to make the company profitable and maximize shareholder value.

    Lafayette Energy Corp.’s current share structure includes management, founders, and board owning a whopping 75.2%!
