Success in Oil and Gas For 30 Plus Years

The Krandee Group, Inc. logo

After decades of dealing with some of the brightest minds in the energy business, The Krandee Group has developed an impressive portfolio with a history of generating wealth, educating newcomers on safe strategies, but also how to avoid the growing number of scams and get rich quick schemes. Our locations of economically successful wells since 2010 speaks volumes.

Founded in 1997 by Larry Ripaldi, As an industry partner the Krandee Group has paid big dividends over decades. Every project is highly scrutinized for its potential to generate strong revenue with low risk why? The operator utilizes its own capital, owns the greatest interest and has the most to gain or lose.

Krandee's success comes down to three main components: People, Location, and Economics.

Business is really about relationships and The Krandee Group is keen on developing and maintaining relations with the right people, the right way for the long haul. Who you know can make or break a business venture and the wrong team can be a huge distraction from the main goal which is, "minimize The Krandee Group depends on Alicia Trotter, office admin, to keep the office running smoothlyrisk and maximize profits". You should enjoy and trust the people you do business with and with Krandee, it's as much like a family as possible. Large enough to have strength and stability but not too big that you can't call everyone by name.

Knowing your location is the next vital key to success. The geologists are among the industry's best and the finds are proven. The yields are solid, the payouts come quick, and the dry holes are kept to a bare minimum. The Krandee Group placed its roots in Texas and Texas has come through in a big way. The reserves in the Lone Star State rival Saudi Arabia's and place Texas 12th in the world in oil production. That makes Texas a nation for all intents and purposes and Krandee's projects are all deep in the heart, so to speak.

Those keys unlock the economics that make The Krandee Group's strategy successful. That's powerful no matter how you look at it and the way Krandee looks at it, those numbers are hard to beat.
