Oil & Gas Production & Processing

Hise Exploration Partners, LLC (“HEP”) is an independent oil company based in Lafayette, LA. The company has a 30+ year track record of success generating oil prospects and safely drilling successful wells in the Gulf Coast.

The Hise Companies, founded in 1968, has spent the last 30+ years in the Gulf Coast energy space. Traditionally funded by three family offices which all reinvested over a 30 year span, the Hise asset team has launched and drilled two successful Gulf Coast Programs in the past. Gulf Coast Program I, drilled from 2000-2008, consisted of 13 deep wells in Louisiana and returned nearly a 2:1 ROI. Gulf Coast Program II, drilled from 2014-2015, consisted of 4 wells in Louisiana and returned nearly a 3.1:1 ROI. The Hise Companies formed Hise Exploration Partners, LLC. (HEP) to raise additional capital through additional private investors. The highly experienced asset team at HEP consists of the same energy professionals as those at Hise Companies. With over 244+ years of combined experienced dedicated to the U.S. Gulf Coast energy space, no other team in Louisiana compares to our competitive advantage. The management team is led by petroleum engineers with their MBAs that have the experience necessary to safe guard investments. Our team has generated prospects ready to drill ("spud") as fast as 60 days after funding.

For this platform, HEP plans to show these oil prospects to accredited investors for potential funding through non-operated working interest participation. We have several presentations for each prospect in Black Bear Energy Program and would enjoy discussing the enormous potential ROI that results when investing with our team!

The Hise Companies has been funded by three family offices based in South Louisiana. We drilled two Gulf Coast Programs in 2000-2008 and 2014-2015. Both programs were extremely successful and had great ROI and IRR results for the family offices. HEP has launched its third Gulf Coast Program called Black Bear Energy Program. We have generated multiple prospects of low to moderate risk and are currently seeking to place the remaining interest on the first prospect - Stallion Prospect.
