Project Description

The Orion Oil and Gas Project Fund II was launched after the success of Orion Oil and Gas Project fund I. The managing company (AUSA) is using the same structure and same team to operate this second fund of the Orion project. After drilling and completing four successful horizontal wells for the  Orion I project, AUSA is continuously raising funds for the next 24 wells in Orion Oil and Gas Fund II. Using the same land used for the first project, confirmed the reserve in the area while reducing the risk in the drilling process. Less risks and more reliable data helps to generate more revenue.We have four successful horizontal wells in the proven area. The Orion project is located right in the heart of Mississippian lime formation in Major County in Oklahoma, with 250 producing wells surrounding our lease acreage. Orion Fund I well production has proven that the area is a rich oil zone and oil reserve. The current four wells are producing over 1200 barrels (bbls) per day together, which provides a very steady cash flow. Orion Fund II wells will be drilled on the same 15000 acreage land. The total budget for the Orion Oil & Gas Fund II is approximately $140 million USD, including $134.4 million USD for 24 wells and approximately $7 million USD for land. EB-5 funds account for 21% ($30 million) of the entire project The project is managed by professional entities including Comanche as a operating company, Atlas, Halliburton and Sandridge for the completion of the project.

  • Administrative Fees : 45,000

  • Jobs Created: 1,800

Project Highlights

  • Project is operated by a public company
  • 3% annual interest on capital invested to investors
  • Upon I-829 approval or 5 years, return investment
  • Fund stays in an escrow account until I-526 approval
  • Land lease and assets will be pledged to limited partnership
  • 1500+ jobs (2.5 times more than needed)
  • Professional management helps to reduce risk involved in the process
  • Oil and gas are in high demand and are considered liquid commodities
  • 80% of oil & gas revenue remains in the escrow account until it is enough to pay back all investors’ principal



Project Advantages:

Public Company:  

The project is operated by an SEC registered public company backed by an oil and gas mineral lease.

 Competitive Return:

After the I-526 is approved the investors receives 3% annual interest approximately $15,000 on the capital invested till investor’s I-829 get approved and withdraws from the project The funds stay in the escrow account to  reduce the risk.

Liquidable Commodity:

Oil, having the advantage of easy liquidity, provides a very stable monthly cash flow. Eighty (80%) of the monthly revenue is reserved with an escrow agency, who will pay back the loan in 5 years, providing us with a clear exit strategy and protection from refinancing risks.

  • Foreseeable Revenue Stream:  For Orion Fund I, the first 4 wells are producing over 200 barrels a day each at a $60/barrel oil price.
  • Total gross revenue is estimated to be $5.4 million/year.
  • Each year the maintenance cost is $60,000/well.
  • After paying 23%of royalty and maintenance cost first year’s revenue is estimated to   be $3.9 million if all drilled at the same time.
  • Net revenue is calculated to be $3.6 million/year

Growing Industry:

Oil and gas is one of the rapidly growing industries in the United States of America. Investors are allowed to invest directly in oil well working interest

Job Creation:

Creation of more than 1500 jobs, which is 2.5 times more than required, gives the advantage of having a surplus of jobs while applying for immigration. The  expenditure jobs are calculated based on amount of capital spent during drilling and extraction. In this case, $134 million capital is used to drill and complete 24 wells, which will create 634 jobs. On top of that revenue jobs are calculated by using the average annual income generated by the oil wells. We are only using 100 barrels/per production to estimate the annual revenue which is far less than what has been produced. We have over 800 revenue jobs.
