Welcome to Voorhees Investment Corp


Mr. Philip Voorhees
President of Voorhees Investment Corp.

Voorhees Investment Corp. has set itself apart from other independent oil & gas companies with projects that are not only multi-state but multi-national. Voorhees Investment Corp embraces an exploration strategy proven to build oil company reserves based on intensive mapping and data analysis, informed wildcatting, and carefully engineered development of proven reserves.

At the helm of Voorhees Investment Corp. is Jim (known in the oil patch as “Blacky”) Mr. Philip Voorhees, a 35 year veteran of oil and gas exploration and production. Over the years Mr. Philip Voorhees might be found at a well-site supervising operations, or meeting with the President of a foreign nation, or anywhere in between. Mr. Philip Voorhees has assembled geologic and remote sensing data in foreign countries where oil and gas wells never existed, leading to identification of prospective reserves now targeted for first time drilling. He has also developed domestic stripper wells and designed secondary recovery waterflood systems that received industry recognition for excellence in design and effectiveness. Mr. Philip Voorhees’s accumulated knowledge and experience with oil & gas reservoirs, geology, drilling and completion engineering, production and enhancement methodologies, and oilfield practices, combined with a passion for the subject, has made him the person other oilmen come to for advice. With the assistance of a world class advisory board, Mr. Philip Voorhees has positioned Voorhees Investment Corp to successfully navigate the 21st century’s foreign and U.S. domestic exploration challenges.

Over the last decade, Voorhees Investment Corp has devoted significant resources to identify new prospects in the mid-continent United States. This has yielded prospects across Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. Prospects now completed or near completion target reserves of 300,000 to 3,000,000 barrels of oil per prospect. Shallow wells, between 1,500 and 6,000 feet of depth present a very favorable risk/reward scenario.
