QUANTUM ENERGY PROFILE

QUANTUM ENERGY INC.  is a diversified energy company headquartered in Houston, Texas and with offices in Calgary, Geneva, Zug, Abuja, Gabon & Sao Tome. It also has a wholly owned subsidiary in the United Kingdom.

 It has three separate and independent companies which are: 

  • Oil and Gas Resources responsible for investments and funding of oil and gas concessions, licenses and multiple services contracts
  • Oilfield Services which takes on turn key contracts, multiple services contracts , drilling and operator services
  • Physical crude oil and refined products trading

Management Team consists of energy industry veterans, whose predecessor corporations have successfully owned and operated oil & gas drilling businesses for over 25 years.

Its management team, with its long experience in the industry and through its strategic government relations in various parts of the world, is able to secure and identify viable fields for development, under terms that are flexible and viable to its needs.

None of our operating, production and engineering professionals have ever been subject to any EPA or safety claims, which reflects the Quantum team’s impressive track record of environmental responsibility.

In addition to its core oil and gas exploration business of the Company since its formation has been in the crude, refined products and LNG physical trading business. This trading business has operations under several separate offshore companies.

Many of our partnerships date back to the founding of our company as majority of the senior staff has decades of relationships with national oil companies around the globe. We're proud of that. These long-term partnerships have been a collaborative effort built on trust and are a result of the high rate of satisfaction with our overall performance. We work to earn trust and satisfaction by consistently responding to their needs with sound technical advice and innovative solutions.

Quantum Oil & Gas Acquisition Division has a team of internationally recognized energy experts with more than 35 years experience in worldwide hydrocarbon exploration-exploitation. 

Based on know-how and relationships around the world, Quantum has the ability to induce local governments to allocate oil & gas reserves to its clients either through oil and gas production-sharing agreements or concession agreements.

Quantum’s team of geologists and geo-physicists are former explorationists with major US and European oil companies where they conducted seismic stratigraphy and basin analysis on behalf of their clients in Southeast Asia, South America, Africa, Middle East and East European countries . They have achieved a superior record of geological-geophysical success in the discovery of several world-class oil discoveries, and has built a record of leadership and uncompromising integrity during the successful execution of such responsibilities as an Advisors to producing countries,Energy Ministries and as Exploration and Exploitation Consultants for oil companies worldwide. They have published numerous famous papers in varied technologies that include integrated basin analysis with special know-how on analysis using Seismic Stratigraphy MPI laboratories and studies focusing on basin evolution, risk analysis, paleostress determinations, 2-D and 3-D seismic processing and sequence stratigraphy principally in basins around the globe.

 

Quantum Energy Services

Quantum Energy Services, a subsidiary of Quantum Group plans to start regional  marketing and trading activities, its growing LNG business, a select group of power generation assets, and its petroleum logistics operations. New England Energy Services is a LNG trading group would market and trade natural gas, power, petroleum, and petroleum products worldwide .It would also manage an extensive network of energy  trading operations shortly. Our objective is to increase cash flow, earnings and returns to our shareholders. We accomplish this by expanding our revenue base through the construction of extensions necessary to service additional wells drilled and others and through accretive acquisitions of mid-stream energy assets such as natural gas gathering, transmission, processing and storage facilities and liquid gathering, transmission and storage facilities. In addition we plan to limit operating costs by achieving economies of scale as a result of expanding our operations through extensions and acquisitions. We plan to continue to strengthen our balance sheet by financing our growth with a combination of long-term debt and equity to provide the financial flexibility for funding future opportunities. We believe that our focus on gas gathering systems and the extensive prior experience of our management in the operation of gathering systems, provide us with a competitive advantage in executing our growth strategy to achieve our business objectives.

We gather natural gas through our pipeline system from more than 4,800 wells for delivery to a variety of customers on major intra-and/or interstate pipeline systems and a limited number of direct end-users. This transported gas is primarily controlled by our company transports approximately 510 million cubic feet of gas per day from more than 1,250 receipt points and wells to interstate pipelines in northeastern and central US, local distribution companies and to its gas processing and treating facilities in the Mid West where natural gas liquids (NGL) and impurities are removed. We then sell the resulting residue gas and NGL and remits a portion of those proceeds to the producer.

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)

Quantum Energy sources its Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) internationally and domestically, directly from producers in the field or from refineries processing raw mix or crude oil. Domestically, third party processing provides Quantum Energy with a vehicle through which untreated field production of natural gas can be processed thus benefiting the producer and pipelines. Internationally, bulk shipments of butanes, propane, pentanes, etc., are delivered to Quantum Energy’s contracted facilities on the U.S. east and Gulf Coast for isomerization processing, petrochemical applications, or into product blending (e.g., gasoline).

Petrochemicals

Over the last several years, Quantum Energy has serviced the needs of large and small manufacturers involved in the pharmaceutical, paper, metal, printed product, textile, etc. industries. Quantum Energy’s extensive relationships in the oil and gas sector throughout the Western Hemisphere has brought it an awareness of the vast opportunities that exist in matching the products manufacturers in one area with those of end-users in another area.  Quantum Energy’s technical expertise in logistics and handling of specialized products has proven invaluable in arranging safe and timely deliveries to meet its commitments.

As market circumstances dictate, Quantum Energy may opt to process various feedstocks (such as natural gas and LPG’s) through fractionation agreements existing with various petrochemical entities on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Through these arrangements, Quantum Energy has the capability to custom blend products to meet its customer’s product requirements

Oil and Gas Exploration and Development

Quantum Energy has actively invested in several oil and gas fields in the US and around the world. Together with its long-term partner companies has many years of experience in the exploration and development of crude and natural gas and has keen interest in securing new and existing oil and gas development rights to implement on an international basis. Together with co-investment of other oil companies, who are strategic partners

Its management team plays an active role in evaluating and testing the best and practical solutions for developing new drilling sites and enhancing the production of existing facilities through the use of innovative technologies.

It currently has equity Interests in developing oil fields in Asia, South America, North America and Africa and has invested in a Joint Venture project for a very heavy crude basin in China for orimulsion-like product to be developed for European market.

Quantum Energy Inc., through its operating Mexican subsidiary Petroleos Energia Quantum S.A. (PEQSA), is working on PEMEX’s Multiple Services Contracts in the Burgos Basin in Mexico.
