Clear leadership is paramount, and experience is scarce and hard-earned. Bluebonnet offers advisory services to support high-growth enterprises, or enterprises undergoing crisis. Bluebonnet’s founder has founded and led three different energy companies, spanning E&P, midstream, and mineral acquisition. If you can imagine the scenario, we have most likely encountered it before.
Whether you’re forming the initial board for a new venture, trying to broaden the collective experience of your current board, or simply need some veteran perspective, we can offer an experienced hand. Our team has served on many energy company boards, and our founder currently serves as Chairman of the Board of a multi-billion dollar E&P company and an emerging energy capital firm.
A successful capital raise requires knowing not only who to ask, but what to ask for. At Bluebonnet, we’ve raised over a billion dollars in equity, working with high-net worth individuals, banks and lending institutions, and large Private Equity. We can help you determine how much to raise, identify who to raise it from, and can make the introductions for you.
Human capital, although not always emphasized, is one of the biggest x-factors in the energy business. You can’t necessarily change the asset you’ve got, but you can definitely change the team that manages it, and that team can usually make the difference. That being said, it’s easy to mis-spend valuable G&A budget on the wrong roles. We’ve built out full management teams in upstream, midstream, and mineral companies, from scratch. Since we’ve hired for early, growing, and mature companies, we’ll help you build out a world-class team for the stage you’re in, and steer you away from costly mistakes.
Creative destruction is alive and well in the domestic energy industry.
It takes courage, skill, and sometimes a bit of luck to survive the storms that sweep our industry.
We’ve been in some hard spots ourselves, and can share our battle-proven insights into getting things back on track.
The pace that exploration and production technology evolves is head-spinning. As we drill deeper and longer laterals, with more elaborate completions, the game is leveling up. With the budgets required for even single well development, coupled with today’s intense capital rationing, management teams must support their decisions with quality science and engineering. We’ve helped evolve companies from wildcatting with a solo geologist to a best-in-class team implementing a rigorous science program. If your team needs to level up, we can guide you every step along the way, leveraging our extensive contacts to find you the best people.
Have you ever had Greenpeace activists trespass a lease, make videos of a flaring well-head, and post it on the internet with your company’s name? What about a right-of-way tenant wrongly suing you for a service company’s mistake? You can’t make this stuff up, and we’re not. It can be a minefield out there, but you also can’t get distracted from the main thing. Knowing what to pay attention to, and what to ignore can be a delicate balance, and it can pay to get that right. We’ve seen a lot of curveballs, and can show you how to put the fire out, and prevent the next one.
