Everyone needs oil. Regardless of current market conditions, you can trust one undeniable fact: Oil companies will earn profits because the world cannot survive without their services. Guaranteed demand and a historical record of profitability mean oil investments will offer superior returns on investment in all economic conditions.

Despite threats from alternative energy sources, conservation, reduced demand, and environmental restrictions, oil continues to provide a stable supply of efficient energy for industrial and consumer use. The additional reasons provided here will help you understand why you should consider investing in the oil industry.


Decades ago, forecasts of impending shortages stoked political pressure to develop alternate sources of energy. Today, the global oil supply continues to grow and now supports history’s largest population. New discoveries of oil and oil shale have made sustained world economic growth possible, increasing the opportunities available to long and short term investors.

Even during times of falling oil prices, the expansion of the oil industry assures a viable profit stream, especially from industry pioneers who can continue to drive cost reductions regardless of economic conditions.


New technologies have reduced the environmental impact of oil production, and pipelines have improved the safety of petroleum distribution. A new generation of oil tankers has reduced the incidence of spills and other accidents.

Companies such as Fusion Resources LLC leverage new technology for domestic oil and gas production, producing wealth together with energy. The effective and efficient use of technology at every step of oil production makes it possible to eliminate intermediaries through placement close to primary sources. As a result, today’s investors reap greater rewards than those of the past.

New Opportunities

Investment opportunities continue to develop with oil production. Companies have developed new, proprietary ways of coordinating geographical, geological, and other data to increase the availability of profits and open the doors to new investment vehicles that will drive further improvements in the oil industry.

Many people wrongly believe that oil has outlived its usefulness, so they emphasize investments in alternative energy sources. Savvy investors like you know differently. The growing global population and demands of emerging economies make oil more important than before. As oil producers scramble to meet the growth in demand for oil, they create new ways to reduce costs while increasing output. The forecast for oil profits should provide you with the incentive to consider investing in the oil industry.
