"You know kind of what else i know. You don't probably want to give away the secret sauce but you know it is it based more on projections or current activity both but the simple answer is once you get established with some clients and you perform. They'll let you know where they're going. Yeah yeah you know so you get the inside scoop from them. They'll let you and then and on because they need it right. I mean they need you to have infrastructure up so that they can have no hiccups in their logistics of transporting water as correct and they do like to see multiple options. The means a win and there's a couple of you know half billion dollar back companies building back companies that have gone up the stack scoops and the last year and we've heard from a couple of large operators traders say look you know we don't we don't what happens if they take the whole water market. <hes> you know they're going to control the border prices yeah so as long as you guys can keep up with us. You know we're we wanted to sell to one of those guys into three years. Become that guy yeah and so that's that's positive and negative about heaven. You know they'd hundred pound gorilla up there but yeah yeah if you can perform. Many of these operators will will support you because i want. Another option is good. Yeah i mean it always comes down to relationships in this business right apps you know having good relationships with the companies and imboden successful business off of that yes sir so talking about we're talking about tax benefits earlier before we started the podcasts and you know a lot of one of the big sells for investors to get into upstream oil and gas assets is obviously the tax fits you get from intangible intangible drilling cost last year depletion tax credits. You know things like that yeah so paul. Obviously your investors are interested in getting some tax breaks. This is what kind of got you've chomping at the bit for saltwater disposals what kind of tax benefits or you guys seen from this. You know i wasn't familiar with tax. Benefits and saltwater disposal also definitely gets me excited yeah i wasn't either you know the way i kind of way me and jeff met is i was at a mentor group with a bunch of other advertisers and at saw guy that i hadn't seen in a while to get friend of mine was asking may what are you doing. What's going on as i build some stuff in texas and he's at ohio hi all right and i was like what are you doing in texas and he's like our doing this water disposal and also what company and he he told me up the scoble energy out of dallas and i'm like unheard unheard of those guys fort worth dallas. I used to live in ohio. That's close close enough so i was like you and then he said yeah they get ten percent and then they're getting a tax deduction and i said you don't get tax deductions on on water our disposal. I sit on the well yeah but not on water exposal. He's i swear to god we're getting that and so i'm like there's no way i would have known about this you know and so he's like well. I'm gonna put you in touch with them so me and jeff talked and he explained it to me and how it came out of the two thousand seventeen jobs act and its bonus depreciation. It's a good thing and we've got it for a few more years right so so basically any any you know business can go out and buy cap or by queant you know things to grow their business whereas he used after debris that over about twenty year period trump says we can do it in the first year <hes> halloween and the upstream space too right so essentially if you're drilling a well we'll hundred percent year intangible your i._d._c.'s become a write off. I think it was like eighty. Eighty percent eighty percent before yeah yeah so so for somebody who doesn't own a business but you have income and assets and you can partner with guys like us and be able to get that tax deduction and get the decent return awesome now. You don't get you know obviously an oil. You know if you hit that winner you're gonna be. You're gonna have a big big return but i mean that that boils down to a high risk high return right. You know a high reward but you know it's not always high reward. Most of our clients are are older and they don't wanna take that kind of risking and they're happy with her. Looking for steady steady cash flow you know one thing do won't say it was a two thousand seventeen. You know tax bill came out the jobs. I was a foul succ- except for the two thousand seventeen that tax bill passed that was most creation yeah so what's cool is what some of the strategies that people can implement because they have that right so think about this. Somebody's got an i._r._a. Right where some of the lowest tax rates they think tax rates are going up. They wanna do a roth conversion right now. They can offset that entire tax bill and move over to a roth and have roth income tax free so that's one of the deterrence for a lot of people to convert to a roth as they gotta pay all the taxes upfront. Now we have an option which before we might have used long aspect. That's pretty high risk right now. We have this option which is low risk and much lower risk than oil and gas and and with the same or close to the same deduction and you can move a lot of that money and offset awesome yeah if you're listening to this and you wanna get some tax benefits fits makes money hit up paul. He's a man when it comes destruction. We'll also so one of the one of the questions you all the time has hey. You guys are in well. How can we take that first. Step into either you the participating investments or becoming operator doing some non upside this is this is a great way to get in. Yeah absolutely oil get into some water deals kinda. Get your feet wet with some things. Allow these guys to kind of educate you in school you on kind of the ins and outs that's a great first step without making the what kind of not not specific to y'all's three facilities then obviously i know you guys have to be careful. On what would you claim for returns but just generally over the over the industry for saltwater disposal. What are some typical returns. You know i mean if you look at apartment complexes commercial real estate complexes people know that you know hey we can get a fifteen percent return. Is there any kind of standard for that for us w._d. Facilities m._s. w._d. Facility should run thirty forty percent margins no and then then of course. What's your corporate experience. Do you have a cost of capital yeah. Do you have debt and so it's kind of all over with the board but the way we structure our deal. It's really since we're not taking debt. We're not using private equity and we're not using wall street. Just the fees is that we save these expenses on counting the headache. There's plenty there to really way. We treat our investors their preferred. They've got a preferred verd- status to us as a managing general partner so they get paid. I we make ten percent distribution that pays monthly in it starts paying immediate because because we we put that money to work <hes> cash flow enough the asset one asset to cover the ten percent on multiple assets and then upon exit. They also get paid. I get one hundred and ten percent back then. We get everything over that. I'm i'm happy taking the risk. I'm comfortable taking the risk yeah and if we're right then you know we let the investor save a lot of tax dollars yeah and make nice. I don't think people realize how much capital gets destroyed by fees in middleman when when it comes to his wife yeah exactly i mean it's just the reporting and everything else you gotta do is can yeah i mean this. This is a problem that i talk about upstream oil and gas assets. You know this is a very tough market right now. Just the entire capital structure is broken and they're don't get me started on this foot. Whether whether there's one gas midstream assets commercial real estate the amount of fees that you pay just destroy capital. I mean even you know this just going through a brokerage fun. You know <hes> doina wanna run yeah yeah. It'll kill you and so getting accessed. Frontmen besser is being able to directly access investments. Our asses extremely yeah and that's our that's our long term goal to is the negative to that is it's taken us longer razor capital yeah no you can't get two hundred million and put it to work yeah but the positive is is that if we perform and if we're able to execute well then we're looking to grow that base and so i'm an entrepreneur. I'm not gonna stop op working. I was bored to death and twelve thirteen fourteen. My wife tell you that was hor- just fish the whole time no see that's the thing i don't have that how many hobbies to work. You know. We're right there with you. On this because asian like retirement any can't ever fucking retirement. I do myself it making money's fun and i'm also sarah awesome charity making other people. Money is absolutely just like building things building things things in following yeah if you have that following if you if your investors have made money with either gonna stick with you and they're gonna go onto the next deal with and when you have that backing there's there's nothing that can really stop you. You have access to capital now and in the next good deal that comes along and get your folks together and no crank up the next thing you know. I don't know what the pilot analogy about the part analogy about being an entrepreneur so i read this i read this article from his name's michael arrington and he wrote it on tetrarch articles like nine nine years old and his apart analogy was that he compares entrepreneurs to pirates there isn't he does. He said he said you look at pirates back in the sixteen hundred seventeen hundreds whenever pirates were running rampant. He's like it probably wasn't that lucrative if you know. How many times did you know a big loot. You know rob a big ship. He said but the risk was pretty high like you're going to get you know get executed. Oh you're gonna get killed out at sea. You know there. There was just this outweighed risk you here to the reward. He says why compare pair entrepreneurs pirates he said because very few entrepreneurs actually make it and make any money but entrepreneurs don't give a fuck about the risk or the reward we just do it because we thoroughly enjoy in your venture so yeah the highs and lows just enjoy the process right and that's that's so it is for me at least personally speaking. I obviously in business to make money but that's not my end goal journey along the way amen. I encourage her. You know one other thing too about using the individual investors is if you do go out and get some of the private equity flex better term. Here's two hundred million clock starts taken you gotta you gotta deploy capital and you and that that can cause people to shortcut the process and by assets. Maybe they shouldn't by to enforce his you end up bad decisions hundred percent. It does yes if you don't return. Your equities knocked out yeah dot com..

You've been a friend of ours for quite a while now and i think you're at our original happy the hours yeah a year ago we work. We met at the bosley hair group. Didn't we don't need that yeah. <hes> i remember paul being there at the original ones those are those are those g wants. Yeah i know you guys are all into 'em may and stuff so i figured i just shaved my head and look like i have a little intimidating. You guys got a really cool episode here. Jeff is as with episode global energy. You guys are in the salt water. Disposal business paul usually introduced us paul ron's fons foreign investors and gets them in a different types. It's of assets saltwater disposals being one of those kind of how we'll connect this story between you two but jeff. Let's start out talking about what you guys are doing at a high level sure we're up in the anadarko basins primarily the stack scoop and transporting and disposing of produced water inflow backwater and that's a good business because that's expensive the the only orwell's oh yeah all right you too big events that are usually get rid of water and electricity correction. We own some water wells right yeah they you know i like this topic that we're talking about and actually jeff and i before we started recording. We walked over to the kitchen. Grab some water and i asked him if he knew kurt he's like yeah just had lunch with them. Three days ago as man every everyone those curtains saltwater does everybody knows what her car was. Actually we had him on and one of our earlier episodes and really got us excited about salt water disposal because it seems like a really unsexy business but what is sexy is cash flow the cash flow the warring in predictable but i mean just the amount of i can't. I can't cite the statistics off the top of my head but the water the supposed to come out of the permian basin over the next five years. She's astronomical so far listeners. Who don't who don't know you have a well as the life of the wealth progresses you're producing more and more water typically and like jeff said this is going to be one of your basic expenses so this has been hauled off and then injected or just injected into a solid supposedly what we have on one of our leases jeff that i leave anything out where he that's exactly right or you can treat it reprocess it. That's that's probably. I won't say that's where the industry's going were probably a number of years out <hes> <hes> <hes> i kinda liked it to them for gas probably back in the seventies. It was really more pain in the neck than anything because we didn't have infrastructure in place to move it <hes> and eventually. I believe if you're going to have this water being connected via pipe being reused. We're we're still quite a few years away from math yeah yeah i mean i'm pretty forward thinking saw i. I tend to think that will you know someone's going to figure out how we recycled produce water using fracking applications drilling but i think we can do it now. It's just extremely expensive to do rag who do it on a large commercial skill. That's right and it's the ford to trickle down for the average operator. It's gonna be a few years out because it's a massive capital investment absolutely louis. They're getting. They're absolutely yes so i'm interested in this because i wanna i wanna invest in salt water disposal facilities so really interested to learn some today but before we dive ventoux it. Let's talk about you guys. Personally we can start off with jeff jeff. Tell us about your background. You know how how did you get up to this point. What's your career in the oil and gas business. You can go oh as detailed as you want or keep it his general as you want and then we'll get into pulse was born in jacksonville arkansas. I grew up out in lubbock came over to dallas nineteen ninety eight and was a stockbroker briefly was disenfranchise with that and so. I don't know how i heard about us through a friend chesapeake form. Tom aubrey just formed chesapeake in nineteen ninety nine so they were looking for people to raise money for him for south texas then it was the austin chalk you know the horizontal when it got started going <hes> so so from eighty nine to ninety three we structured deals and raise capital from net worth individuals family offices they went public ninety three and i went started on company took a handful of those investors and i went over to what is now the barnett shell but we were drilling on top of it and to have more shallow formation and had some lip there after we lost first the ball we lost about three million bucks in louisiana right off the bat so i said we're leaving louisiana. Wait wait wait. Let's talk about this. How'd you lose three million dollars because because there's this great to bed wells yeah too bad well. That's what i saw. A lot of people don't understand about the expiration businesses that you could have thirty. You know decent wills but you have to bad ones and they can just change everything. Oh yeah i'll bet you over my career. We've owned probably thirty. Five hundred. Wells drilled a thousand of them. Well it make very much money on very many of them don't handful. You'd yeah so that tents water business. We can get into that later. You just made a comment before we started recording so yeah we own mr pools in oklahoma but fuck oils. I wanted in the water business of the money that i'm making more oil off my disposal well than i ever. We'll ask him all yeah. We are. Yes crazy. I just wish we could have so we saw the downturn so anyway. It's backed up so in ninety three did a small private deal and mesa mostly friends and family ninety eight. We got an unsolicited offer from bob simpson to buy everything he was out in parker county on land by minerals and we just happened to have thirty two wells on what he bought say these we want it and he gave us the members got it and then it was the name sounds familiar. Who is he mm-hmm yeah so he started cross timbers in that became mexcio <hes> he was chairman and c._e._o. When they so tax on okay i think one of the most successful if not the most successful independent independent oil company out there. They just did a great job over next to you. All those guys yeah absolutely so in nine nine for those that weren't in the business. It was brutal. We had small production and illinois with sold off the gas assets out in parker county and we actually got to revenue runs. We received see from the purchaser. Seven dollars and seventy five cents a barrel. That's bad when it cost you ten and you're getting seven seventy five. That's right you lose two three bucks every the timing produce barrel so i kind of got sucked into the matt. Simmons been pickens cam the cheap oil pretty soon tze over and so we wanna make long bet on they kind of bring that up because i kind of remind you that's where we are down water industry. I think we've got a lot of upside in it and if he can get a now control assets i think you can probably sell into a pretty good market down the road so back in oth three we were out pitching going to wall street sin the usual guys and actually had in two thousand and two word about eighteen bucks and actually had a banker analyst who's probably all twenty five years old. He's a what might you will ever see twenty dollars again. I said okay we'll go to the next week. The next guy says we're not buying all right now to cheat. So when do you want to buy it. You know it's just the market mentality. Everybody says buy low sell high. It's hard to get people to do that. Believe they hold onto it goes down then they sailed compliance a lot easier said than done typical investor in anything right. That's exactly right. I always tell at the wrong time and by the wrong time so we met along that we just wanted to go by as much as fast as we could and so we finally found a group out of europe that said said yeah we'll we'll. We liked the idea. We'll give you some money and i wanted to get into the public markets because at that time the cost capital was pretty good so we got to the public markets and we're we're only american stock exchange no five and went to the new york and built it to about a six hundred fifty million dollar enterprise value from about afford away. Which company was this. This was no energy came connell petroleum c._f. W was the ticker an when oil prices go from twenty to one hundred forty everybody looksmart by the way uh-huh yeah exactly so for what we did and do we wanted to guess right on the markets. You know we wanted to go up and down with the tide. We're never ever gonna pick the bottom or the top. I'm not anyway so as long as we can get in somewhere around you know bomb twenty percent get out somewhere in the top twenty percent. We're good with that in the meantime. Just execute don't make too many mistakes and if you don't make them twice so that's kind of what we do in any event we had a mention this because we're not taking any debt i one hundred million dollars a debt in two thousand and eight whenever we saw lasco from one hundred forty eight thirty two sounds like the main problem well the the the good news that is a hundred may sound like a lot but it's not and so when you have chesapeake the does the same in california when they two billion now the people owned two billion man would just go sit down and say man just stick with us. We'll make it yet. Hey just get out of my hair. You know so so we survived that and the company had grown. I'm an entrepreneur this four startup a guess and i'm bill to sell guy <hes> and that company got to the point where it went from literally two guys on the board and for employees to earn seventy five employees and a corporate board and it's it was time for me to go and this was two thousand ten yeah december two thousand ten i went did some consulting process jumped v-shaped curve. You know jump right back up to one hundred bucks. Buy twenty seven okay. We're gonna wait for correction. Get in it but this time we're doing water. We water flood company tertiary oil company so we managed a lot of water at comment and i remember it wasn't even a line item on the balance sheet that will be on through quarterlies looking at production shen. You know it was doing okay but this little bitty line item that we didn't even have on the balance sheet would be hall mortar for some of our competitors disposing of it. I can thirty forty percent margin yeah so why are we doing oil wells. You know and that was private. Of course we didn't say that to the market so that i'll never forget that and then of course our biggest bill the two biggest bills will always have in that as trinity and water to water so twenty twelve. We still had one hundred dollars oil twenty thirteen hundred twenty fourteen at two hundred. You'd go man. I missed it this thing ever incorrect the night and finally at did started tuned fifteen sixteen it got down to twenty six dollars in january sixteen and so we formed from the company about mid sixteen and spent about twelve months okay are we gonna. Are we going to fund this private equity. Guys know don't want to go to the public markets no and the ready foul six exemption is what we can do. We can advertise take accredited investors only but that helped at helped. That's one thing in the jobs. Active obama obama passed it that was helpful for small trying to raise money <hes> so we set that up on the first one done and we wanted to get in the market in the water market put somewhere other than the permian and here's why permeates great.

I said sir very high risk right and so try to take some of these institutional channel investors that may be focused on commercial real estate or some more risk adverse investments that cash flow.
