Why should you choose EnergyNet to divest your assets?

National Exposure

EnergyNet has 18,500+ registered bidders from all 50 states, with 8,200+ unique bidders participating monthly. On average, EnergyNet has 8.4 bidders per auction transaction. EnergyNet's online auction and sealed bid platform attracts bidders who would be unable or unwilling to attend an on-site auction, which increases revenue for the seller.

It's a fact: EnergyNet has the largest network of active, sophisticated, accredited buyers. As of October 2014, EnergyNet has sold more than 46,000 properties all across the United States.

Increased Competition = Higher Returns

It's simple: Greater buyer exposure leads to more competition. More competition leads to higher returns for sellers.

This video shows the bidding activity for one property over its 7-day bid period in November 2011. Watch as bidders from all across the United States participate in this sale. This kind of activity is something you can only achieve with the ease-of-access and level playing field that the EnergyNet online marketplace provides.

EnergyNet sellers enjoy the flexibility of choosing which sale type best suits the asset they are divesting. Your Business Development Representative will help you make the right decision about the sale type for your asset. Here are some general guidelines used to determine an appropriate sale type.

Auction Sales

  • Typically requires a simpler presentation of property information
  • The asset has more than 75% proven developed production (PDP), with small upside
  • The only two chief variables are price and effective date
  • Numerous bidders expected to compete for the asset

Rapid-cycle Sealed Bid Sales

  • Information about the asset is more complex, requiring a more detailed presentation
  • The asset has less than 75% proven developed production reserves (PDP)
  • The asset has more than 25% proven undeveloped production (PUD), but greater upside potential
  • Variables other than price and effective date influence the value of the asset
  • Fewer bidders are expected to compete for the asset due to its unique characteristics

Negotiated Sales

  • Has a market value up to and including $100 million
  • Requires broad and targeted market exposure due to the upside potential, new drills, work overs, secondary or tertiary recovery projects
  • Is operationally and contractually complex, with large amounts of geological, reservoir, production and land data that require an Internet Data Room (IDR) to show, and additional time for a buyer to review
  • 75% or less of the value is associated with Proved Developed Producing (PDP)
  • May include non-producing opportunities which require additional data and explanation
  • A Confidentiality Agreement (CA) may be required for release of specific data
  • A Purchase and Sale Agreement (PSA) is expected for the asset. In the PSA, the buyer and seller spell out specifically what is being purchased and what is not, who is responsible for environmental issues, when the effective date is, and any other issues required about the ownership of the property.
