SLU is right
for every type of investor

SLU is a driving force
to a more transparent and ESG driven
Oil & Gas asset market

Historically, the only option for investors to participate in the energy space was through public equities, private equities, or risky non-operated interests in assets, with little-to-no influence on how these assets were developed or operated. Instead, the SLU Marketplace will create a new standardized commodity of “oil in the rock”, an opportunity to leverage climate awareness within O&G industry.

Current Situation

Despite big challenges in the global energy landscape, there are strong opportunities for the Oil & Gas industry, which is working tirelessly to supply an ever-growing demand. In the current geopolitical context, with high oil and gas prices that are predicted to continue their upward trend, the world shall continue to be dependent on fossil fuels. However, this also creates an environment ripe for investors to play an important role in re-shaping the industry and bringing climate impact to the forefront of the industry. There is room for important changes within the sector, regardless of how the energy system evolves.

The Permian Basin Crude is becoming increasingly important as a reference world index. The Basin, which is the richest oil producing region in North America, has over 50 years of production left. Cleaning up Permian production will have a big impact on decarbonization objectives.
