Maximizing Return

The Standard Resources Fund (the “Fund”) is a Canadian Mutual Fund Trust that actively pursues investments in the oil and gas industry throughout the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. These investments include producing assets (wells), facilities, pipelines, and equity.

Utilizing fundamental analysis to exploit arbitrage opportunities, the Fund provided unit holders with a year over year return of 36.18% return in 2010. This return includes the computation of the distribution yield and the increase in per unit equity value.

With over 750 unit holders, the Fund is capable of acquiring or deploying capital in $2.5 – 10 million CDN tranches and has a mandate to primarily target the upstream sector of the industry for its portfolio.

The Fund utilizes an experienced team of internal, external, and third-party evaluators and analysts to determine the suitability of each prospective investment. Only after rigorous due diligence will the Fund ultimately add a new investment or asset to the existing portfolio.

The Standard Resources Fund has a minimum investment of $5,000 CDN and is TFSA and RRSP eligible. As of January 1, 2011 the current Net Asset Value per unit is $6.23.

Portfolio Objective

The Standard Resources Fund has a specific investment mandate that is used to meet the required objectives of both the Trustee and the unit holders. The primary portfolio objectives can best be summarized with the following four (4) points:

  • MANDATE. To acquire oil and gas related assets located and operated in Western Canada.
  • WHEELHOUSE. To invest in tranches not less than $2.5 MM CDN
  • RUNNING ROOM. Exploit un-booked upside through focused development and engineering
  • CRYSTALIZE & MONETIZE. Strategically divest the assets for cash and/or shares in order to maximize unit holder value.
Current Portfolio

The Fund currently owns a 39.49% working interest in the Niton ‘W’ Pool located in Central Alberta. This working interest includes ownership in the four (4) producing wellbores, the four (4) water injectors, the pipeline infrastructure, and the central facility.

This resource play provides the Fund with 200 barrels per day of production from the Rock Creek formation. The producing assets are on a contiguous block of 3.75 sections of land and the Fund holds an additional 7 sections of undeveloped acreage that has future un-booked upside potential.

The Niton ‘W’ Pool was purchase on February 3, 2010 from Crocotta Energy Inc. and has provided substantial monthly cash flows ever since. With almost 500,000 BOE of reserves booked, the Fund considers this property to be of high strategic value.
