Security

The substantial rise in energy prices in the mid-2000s attracted many investors. Although many of these investors cashed in on the gains posted by various energy and natural resources equities, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and mutual funds, there are other alternatives available that provide more direct exposure to the energy markets. The oil market provides a diverse array of options for the potential investor. From indirect exposure via an energy-related stock to more direct investment in a commodity-linked ETF, the energy sector has something for almost everyone. As with all investments, make sure you do your research or consult an investment professional prior to committing your money, and remember the information outlined above when predicting price changes to help ensure a profitable investment.

Flexibility

Investing in Oil and Gas is very flexible. Investors have many options for getting involved with oil. These methods come with varying degrees of risk and range from direct investment in oil as a commodity, to indirect exposure in oil through the ownership of energy-related equities. One direct method of owning oil is through the purchase of oil futures or oil futures options. Futures are highly volatile and involve a high degree of risk. Additionally, investing in futures may require the investor to do a lot of homework as well as invest a large amount of capital. Another direct method of owning oil is through the purchase of commodity-based oil exchange-traded funds (ETFs). ETFs trade on a stock exchange and can be purchased and sold in a manner similar to stocks. For example, buying one share of the U.S. Oil Fund (USO) would give you exposure to roughly one barrel of oil. In addition, investors can gain indirect exposure to oil through the purchase of energy-sector ETFs, like the iShares Global Energy Sector Index Fund, and to energy-sector mutual funds, like the the T. Rowe Price New Era Fund. These energy-specific ETFs and mutual funds invest solely in the stocks of oil and oil services companies and come with lower risk. Read More

Illinois Basin

The Illinois Basin is a Paleozoic depositional and structural basin in the United States, centered in and underlying most of the state of Illinois, and extending into southwestern Indiana and western Kentucky. The basin is elongate, extending approximately 400 miles northwest-southeast, and 200 miles southwest-northeast. The Illinois Basin has produced more than four billion barrels of petroleum. Major oil production began in 1905, and from 1907 through 1912, the basin was the third-most oil productive area in the United States. Oil production peaked in 1908 at 34 million barrels per year, and declined steadily to 5 million barrels in 1933. A new wave of exploration brought oil production to a new high of 140 million barrels in 1940, after which production again declined. Waterflooding of old reservoirs caused a third peak of oil production in the 1950s. Much recent drilling activity has targeted shale gas in the Devonian-Mississippian New Albany Shale. Read More
