How to invest in shale plays
What’s behind the name:
Eagle Ford Shale is named
after the town of Eagle Ford,
where an outcrop of the
deeply buried rock formation
can be seen on the surface.
The small community lies
about 6 miles west of Dallas.

shale and release trapped hydrocarbons.
“It’s more of a manufacturing process
than wildcatting,” Flavin explains. “It’s a
matter of: Can you drill appropriately and
hit that zone?”
And, as long as oil stays above a certain
price, this process remains a profitable
one, he says.
The variety of opportunity is certain to
attract those with funds to invest, but in the
midst of the excitement created by Eagle
Ford, one thing professional consultants
agree on is the importance of their favorite
two words: Due diligence.
“There is naturally an increase in curiosity about energy investing, given all that is
going on,” says Ed Hart, managing director at Sendero Wealth Management.
There is a place in all portfolios for energy investments, he says. “We just need
to size it appropriately for each individual
investor’s risk-reward profile,” he adds.
On the pages that follow, four San Antonio-based financial experts offer thoughts
on where the opportunities are — and perhaps more importantly, where they aren’t.
There are scams out there. Always check
with the Texas State Securities Board,
which regulates the industry and helps
protect consumers. Its investor education
website — texasinvestored.org — is a good
place to start. Or call (888) 663-0009 for a
free background check on anyone selling
securities or investment opportunities.

or any Texan unfamiliar with the
term man camps, a drive south of the
city serves as a convincing argument
for the media and economic development
frenzy created by the Eagle Ford Shale.
From convenience stores and living
quarters to oil-and-gas service companies,
the modern-day gold rush created by this
hydrocarbon producing formation is ripe
with both opportunity and risk.
But those who know the oil-and-gas
game know also that it is a boom-and- bust
business, says Wendy Kowalik, president
of San Antonio-based financial consulting
firm Predico Partners.
“Remember what happened with the
last oil boom-and-then bust. There always
should be caution when chasing a return,”
she says. “As Sir John Templeton says: ‘The
five most dangerous words in investing are:
‘This time, it is different.’”
But given the possibilities created by hydraulic fracturing, is it different this time?
Though oil-and-gas is typically cyclical,
the process in the case of Eagle Ford is
not the traditional one, says Meade Flavin,
partner at San Antonio-based Pasadera
Capital LLC, which does M&A and raises
capital for privately held companies.
While geologists have long been aware
of the Eagle Ford formation, it was the process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking
that made it possible to open up the dense

She is one of only two Texans ranking in the Top 10 of this
prestigious list of women-owned RIAs selected from across
the country. Ms. Wyatt was also recently named one
of Barron’s “Top 100 Independent Investment Advisors”
and one of wealthmanagement.com’s “Top 25 Women
Investment Advisors.” South Texas Money Management
was founded in 2000 and manages approximately $1.9
billion in assets (as of 3/31/2013), including equity, fixed
income, and balanced asset classes for individuals,
trusts, retirement plans, charitable foundations and
endowments, as well as for bank trust departments and
other institutions.

These rankings are not indicative of any client’s experience or future performance. The wealthmanagement.com <http://wealthmanagement.com> list was assembled by Meridian
IQ and was cross-checked with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings. The women selected are required to directly own at least 25 percent of their firm, and their firm
may have no more than 50 percent institutional clients. Additionally, none of the RIAs on the list may operate as a broker/dealer, a bank, or be affiliated with an investment company,
and they must have some individual clients for whom they do financial planning. Top 25 women investment advisors was assembled by Meridian IQ for www.wealthmanagement.
com <http://www.wealthmanagement.com> , are ranked by their total assets under management. Women advisors were also required to directly own at least 25 percent of the
firm; have at least some individual clients for whom they do financial planning, and no more than 50 percent institutional clients. Additionally, none of the RIAs on the list operates
a broker/dealer, a bank, or is affiliated with an investment company. Barron’s ranks advisors based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed
via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms, and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron’s uses to rank advisors is proprietary. It has three major
components: assets managed, revenue produced, and quality-of-practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor’s returns are dictated largely
by the risk tolerance of clients. The scoring system assigns a top score of 100 and rates the rest by comparing them with the winner. The quality-of-practice component includes an
evaluation of each advisor’s regulatory record.

$100,000 level investors:
A word of caution: There are
$1,000 level investors:
plenty of bad ideas out there. They usually
involve overconcentration into one asset
or idea at too high a price. One of the
biggest mistakes that can be made is replacing the energy concentration risk with
another form of equally concentrated risk,
especially a risk that is not so obvious at
first glance.
We would recommend an ETF to participate for a $1,000 per year investment.
The iShares U.S. Oil-and-gas Exploration
& Production ETF (ticker IEO) probably
has the most participation rate, with five
of the top ten ETF holdings being key
acreage holders in Eagle Ford. Those five
holdings are: EOG Resources, Apache
Corp., Anadarko Petroleum, Marathon Oil
and Pioneer Natural Resources.

tion depends on your net worth.
Consider this amount of money
in terms of your net worth, not just the
Eagle Ford. If you can invest your $10,000
through a qualified plan like a 401K -- or
even part of it in an IRA -- that’s much
better. Avoid investing in “drilling deals.”
This is very high risk. The cost of drilling
a well in the Eagle Ford is huge, so there
is always a demand for capital, and very
few people can afford this type of investment.
A word of caution:
Trouble almost always begins with
investment ideas or “schemes” that lack
transparency and/or are illiquid. Many
with newfound wealth find themselves
confronted with all sorts of investment
pitches that sound too good to be true,
because they usually are.

The best way to invest in energy, Eagle
Ford Shale or otherwise, would be to own
public equity or debt of companies involved
in these shale resource plays. There are
exploration and production companies, oilfield service companies and pipeline companies that have operations in and around
the Eagle Ford, and other fields around
the country. Investors will also want to be
keenly aware of being well diversified, so
energy sector mutual funds or exchange
traded funds are also good options.
Texas is full of hard working
entrepreneurs, and some of the
ways these folks are making money
are really interesting. A lot of trucking
companies have been started to help
carry and remove water and chemicals
from individual drilling sites. There are
salt-water disposal well businesses to
help deal with the excess wastewater
produced by fracked wells. There are
“man-camp” type developments to deal
with the increased demand for employee
housing in the region. Many landowners
are being very smart with their properties and leasing or selling small parts out
to larger companies in need of storage
facilities or gathering stations.
rn
$1,000 and $10,000
level investors:
23
The same investing options apply at this
level. However, if someone has $100,000
to invest directly, other opportunities
become available. There are a number of
direct investments available to such an
investor. The key issue will be sourcing
these investments and conducting proper
due diligence such that the investor will
be aware of all the risks associated with it.
Some options might include direct working interest in a producing well, purchase
and ownership of existing mineral interests, participation in a drilling program or
ownership in a service company working
over the Eagle Ford. Each of these carries
a variety of opportunity-specific risks.
While the reward can be high, there is
also the chance of losing most or all of
one’s investment.

$100,000 level investors: If an
investor has $100,000 per year to invest,
and they have already built a diversified
portfolio, oil-and-gas is being used in two
places. First, many investment advisors
are using MLPs (Master limited partnerships) to increase income for clients who
can not get the yields and income from
bonds any longer. Additionally, they are
recommending money managers that are
heavy in their energy bets directly in the
U.S.
Partner

For potential investors:
We represent companies and help them
attract financing either to grow or make
acquisitions. The biggest bank for your
buck would be a direct investment to a
company seeking to provide a new service
or product offering directly to the oilfield.
The opportunities in these resource plays
are through new technology, providing
needed services or in infrastructure.
Among opportunities she’s
seen:
I think the most innovative I have seen
is the woman who purchased numerous
washing machines and is making quite a
nice sum of money each month by laundering oil field workers uniforms after a
rough day on the job. With many living in
hotel rooms, finding a washing machine is
harder than you would think.
Opportunities he’s seen:
se
We’ve seen a lot of companies leveraging
1. EOG Resources, Houston, TX
2. Burlington Resources (a unit of ConocoPhillips),
Houston, TX
om
I have seen some investment advisors
recommending expensive products to
clients and without experience in some
of the more complicated products, it may
take quite a bit of time for them to see
how much they have lost in making the
investment.

mutual funds and ETFs (exchange traded
funds) will allow a minimum investment
of $1,000 to $2,000 to start. A risk of this
approach is a lack of diversification if most
of your investible assets are chasing one
investment sector in the marketplace.

give an example, there’s a group we met
with recently that’s in the oil-and-gas
businesses, and they’ve got large stakes
in North Dakota. They started building
hotels there in a desolate area several
years ago. Now these guys look like geniuses. They were in the play, they knew

When Marsha Hendler earned her degree in hotel and restaurant management

Now, Hendler, former vice president for
La Mansion Hotels who also operates San

ort Worth-based accounting firm Weaver LLP is absorbing via a
merger locally based accounting firm John R. Hannah & Co. LLP.
John R. Hannah & Co. provides audit and tax, estate-planning and
financial-planning services. All of its 10 employees are expected to stay on
in the wake of the merger, including the firm’s owner, John Hannah, who
has been named a senior managing director for Weaver.
This is Weaver’s third merger deal in the San Antonio area over the past
three years. The regional firm absorbed locally based accounting firms
Polansky McNutt Perry & Co. in December 2008 and Edelman Arnold in
December 2009.
Weaver’s San Antonio executive partner, Ed Polansky, says the cycle of
mergers in the Alamo City is not new. In the early 1980s, he says firms like

The collegiate all-star football game that
was sponsored by the NFL Players Association and was played in the Alamodome
in February of last year will not return in
2012.
The Texas vs. The Nation game is going
on hiatus in 2012. In its place, the NFLPA
has created its own all-star event featuring
top NFL draft prospects that will be played
at the Home Depot Center near Los Angeles later this month.
The Texas vs. The Nation game will
return in 2013 in a new stadium located
north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
in Allen, Texas.
“We wanted to do an event that was exclusively managed by the NFL Players
Association and to implement programs
to assist players with their transition into
the NFL,” says NFLPA spokesman Carl

sponsor the game that was played in San
Antonio last year.
Promoters of the NFLPA game had initially said they wanted to keep it in San

exposure since the game was televised by

But the NFLPA’s decision to create its
own game, along with other factors, has
sacked those plans.
