Funding Oil & Gas Acquisition & Development 

Canadian Oil and Gas Undervalued

Due to an extended period of low oil and gas prices, operators of producing properties have been unable to invest money to deliver the true value potential of their oil and gas reserves through standard field activities such as well recompletions, development drilling, and enhanced recovery. Some companies have struggled or even gone bankrupt, yet with rising and stable commodity prices, the industry remains profitable.

Strategic Investment for High Returns

WestCan Energy is strategically positioned to acquire and develop high-quality, undervalued oil and gas assets to deliver their value potential. WestCan aims to unlock the value potential of producing Canadian upstream oil and gas properties using standard field development techniques such as recompleting existing wells, drilling additional wells to recover oil in untapped locations, and operating the fields to maximize oil recovery.

Partnered for Success

Under a strategic alliance agreement, WestCan has partnered with Hillcrest Petroleum, a company managed by experienced oil and gas professionals with excellent track records extracting value from oil and gas properties. Equipped with the state-of-the-art capabilities required to maximize investor return to the partnership, Hillcrest will identify and screen acquisition opportunities for WestCan, and then manage acquired oil and gas assets to deliver maximum value. This strategic alliance couples WestCan’s funding capacity with Hillcrest’s extensive oil and gas capabilities to unlock the value potential of Canadian upstream oil and gas acquisition opportunities.

WestCan will have an exclusive right of first refusal on pre-screened acquisition opportunities to be operated and managed by Hillcrest. WestCan will fund acquisition and development costs associated with oil and gas assets.

Market Opportunity

2018 global crude oil demand in barrels per day
Barrels per day the market will be undersupplied in 2018, estimated by OPEC
Canadian oil production expected to more than double by 2030
Price increase of WTI crude oil since 2016

Utilizing Blockchain Technology

WestCan will initially fund oil and gas acquisition and development through standard industry notes which will be converted to an asset-backed security token. Accredited investors can participate in both forms of investment to partner directly in high-potential oil and gas opportunities, giving owners direct rights to asset value, distributed automatically via the blockchain.


WestCan is funding oil and gas acquisition and development through an asset-backed Security Token, which will be distributed via  blockchain technology. Token value will be backed by the market value of the acquired producing oil and gas assets, providing investors with direct access to the underlying oil and gas commodity value.

The benefits of using tokens as the medium for a security investment are smaller entry level commitments,  enhanced liquidity of securities (lock-up period applies), speed and ease of distributing earnings to investors, security of blockchain technology, and codified ownership compliance.

Security Tokens are subject to regulation by security laws in the United States, Canada, and other relevant jurisdictions. Our tokens will fully comply with applicable rules and regulations when they are issued.
