How We Work

How We Work

JOG invests exclusively in early stage upstream junior oil and gas teams operating in Western Canada.

JOG intends to leverage the expertise of its investment team which has experience in energy investment banking, reservoir engineering, geology and energy start-ups. JOG has established a track record of funding previously successful management teams and new ventures managed by previously successful JOG teams.

To advocate for its capital, JOG typically has representation at the investee company's board of directors. 

Portfolio investments are typically made at the same time and price as management. JOG prefers to not invest in promoted deals.

Our investment process relies on a disciplined set of criteria focused on: management, economic return and technical due diligence. Prior to investing, JOG also considers the business plan, capital requirements and future exit strategy with the view of holding for 3 to 5 years.
