Invest

We invest our clients’ and our own capital to deliver strong returns from private upstream oil and gas investments.

Giant provides growth capital to acquire and develop oil and gas reserves in partnership with upstream oil and gas operators. We also purchases oil and gas mineral and royalty interests.  We conduct deep technical and commercial due diligence to determine a fair valuation.  Then we work with the operator to determine how much capital is needed and how that capital should be used.
