Crudefunders Launches The First Oil And Gas Equity Crowdfunding Project In The United States Open To All Investors

"Previously, only a small group of extremely wealthy individuals had the ability to invest in projects like these," said David Taylor, cofounder of Crudefunders. "Today, anyone can invest in an E&P project, thanks to the passing of Reg CF under the JOBS Act. With oil prices where they are, if the well hits, the opportunity for our investors to make significant return on investment is probable."

Crudefunders is open to any U.S. citizen, is free to join, and requires no credit checks. Investors can own a piece of an oil well – and its potential profit – for as little as $1,000 per project. Payouts to investors can begin as quickly as 90 days following the well's proven success.

Crudefunders is backed by a team of industry veterans who thoroughly analyze all potential projects before making them available to investors and only works with credible independent oil and gas companies. The company provides transparency into well and project dynamics, as well as the tools needed to learn about the industry to its more than 4,000 registered investors.
