Lower Risk Development Focus
Maple Leaf Energy Income programs geologists and engineers focus on investing in development or "in-fill wells and do not finance the drilling any high risk wildcat wells.
Government Regulated Proven Pools
current government regulated production data from already producing
wells, along with seismic reading equipment, it has become much easier
to determine the ideal location to drill for subsequent "in-fill" wells.
Oil and Gas Companies with a Development Drilling Target
Well Understood Development Drilling Programs
can Create Value for Investors
Oil & Gas companies undertake two types of drilling; exploration or development. Development drilling offers substantially less risk.
Key Advantages of Development Drilling
- Development drilling means drilling into an already existing and producing pool of oil and/or gas.
- 85% average success rate in development drilling vs. only 10% average success rate for exploration drilling.
- Infrastructure (i.e. pipelines) and processing facilities are generally already in place to facilitate tie-in of production and paying investors income as soon as possible.

Diversification Through Technology
| || |
Maple Leaf Energy Income programs provide diversification through key geographical areas and multi-zone development drilling.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE RISKS OF THESE TYPES OF PROGRAMS?
- Drilling wells can be
viewed as risky, however the partnership has mitigated this risk by
targeting development wells, which typically achieve a success rate in
excess of 85%, rather than exploration wells.
- Well performance
i.e. the actual daily volume of production achieved from a well and its
estimated reserves of oil and natural gas can vary from pre-drill
- Commodity price volatility.
One important factor that significantly mitigates risk is the 100% tax deduction that the investors realize from participation in Maple Leaf Energy Income programs. This tax deduction returns back to investors approximately 40% of their investment from their tax savings.
