How a Startup Oil Production Company Launched a Successful Operation Without Capital

Here's What We Do Better

Our client, an oil production company, was looking to launch a multimillion-dollar operation in a specific country but lacked the startup capital to do so. The company had a solid business plan and a team of experienced professionals, but traditional funding sources were not an option due to the company’s lack of credit history and collateral.
The client’s lack of startup capital presented a major obstacle to launching the business. Without access to funding, the company was unable to purchase the necessary equipment and hire the staff needed to begin production. Additionally, the client was facing intense competition in the oil production industry and needed a way to differentiate themselves and secure a competitive advantage.

To generate the necessary capital, we employed a combination of multiple countertrade mechanisms:

To address these challenges, we implemented a combination of countertrade mechanisms that generated cash revenue for the client company. First, we utilized a Counter-Purchase agreement with a large oil and gas company in the same country. Under this agreement, the client agreed to purchase a certain amount of oil and gas from the other company, in exchange for an upfront payment that provided the necessary startup capital.
Next, we set up a series of direct and indirect offsets with various equipment manufacturers. These offsets allowed the client to purchase the necessary equipment at a reduced cost, in exchange for committing to purchase a certain amount of oil from the manufacturer over a set period of time.
Finally, we established a clearing agreement with a number of international oil trading companies. Under this agreement, the client agreed to sell a certain amount of oil to these companies at a pre-agreed price, and in exchange, the trading companies provided the client with an upfront payment to cover the cost of production.
With the help of these countertrade mechanisms, our client was able to raise over $500,000 in cash revenue, allowing them to purchase equipment, hire staff, and begin production. Within the first year of operation, the company was able to produce and sell over 1 million barrels of oil, and by the end of the second year, it had reached $10 million in sales. The client’s innovative business model, coupled with the competitive advantage provided by the countertrade mechanisms, resulted in a number of other companies approaching the client to invest in the business.
In the end, the company was able to raise over $25 million from private investors and started to expand its production in other countries as well. The company’s success story caught the attention of other potential investors, who lined up to invest in the client’s business, making the client one of the leading players in the global oil production market.
