For more than 75 years, the state of Michigan has been a fertile energy source, currently ranking 12th in the nation for gas and 18th for crude oil production.
Many of the nation's major oil companies actively developed the Michigan Basin, but left the state in the 1980s and 1990s to pursue what at the time were more lucrative opportunities overseas. Yet with energy prices now at historic highs and with demand outstripping supply, the Michigan Basin has become more economically attractive to investors.
Bradford Gordon LLP, an oil and gas investment firm, began acquiring mineral rights in the 1980s under drilling units where the major oil companies demonstrated interest. Over more than two decades, Bradford Gordon, in partnership with the Mikado Corporation, acquired 594 parcels, representing 8,000 net acres that show promise for drilling and re-drilling.
Bradford Gordon/Mikado now intend to sell their interests in the Michigan Basin, offering an opportunity to invest in a state that boasts cutting-edge transportation systems and pipelines for an annual production of 10 million barrels of oil and more than 300 billion cubic feet of natural gas.

Bradford Gordon spent more than 20 years researching and analyzing Michigan's potential as an energy resource and studying the operations of the major and independent exploration and production companies. The firm carefully selected its acquisitions with the help of a noted Michigan geologist.
The U.S. Geological Survey, the state of Michigan, the University of Central Michigan and the Michigan Oil and Gas Association have all substantiated the significant BOE, or barrels of oil equivalent, possibilities in the state. Many abandoned wells have been identified as strong candidates for redrilling.
