Investment Profile

Empowher Capital Fund is excited to present our latest Oil & Gas Fund, Empowher Energy Growth Fund, a 506c offering. This fund has been meticulously crafted to acquire diversified holdings of Non-Operating Working Interests & Overriding Royalty Interests in middle-market opportunities, focusing on PDP & PUD, and partnering with established operators in proven basins.

Our strategic approach involves acquiring existing, producing assets (PDP) with additional upside potential through “infill” drilling in proven oil & natural gas reserves (PUD). We collaborate with well-established operators, including some of the largest in the industry (e.g., Marathon, Chesapeake, Devon, etc.).

Private equity funding in the oil & gas sector has witnessed a significant decline in recent years, resulting in a funding gap for new drilling projects. Noteworthy investors, such as Warren Buffett, are capitalizing on these opportunities. The current market conditions allow for prudent acquisitions of existing production at attractive values, without overpaying for the drilling upside.

Leverage our strategic position with the target fund size and capitalize on opportunities in the middle market. With a scarcity of capital market activity, we position ourselves to participate in larger assets within proven basins alongside major operators.


Our fund strategy intricately combines a concentrated approach to acquiring existing, profitable assets at attractive values, while strategically unlocking additional upside potential through targeted drilling initiatives. This dual focus aims to deliver a compelling mix of regular distributions and reinvestments, compounding returns for our investors.
