Spicewood Energy Management, LLC (SEM) Announces Close of Private Drilling Fund

SEM, Which Was Formed to Manage Oil and Gas Investments Through Multiple Limited Partnerships, Announces the Close of a Year-End Oil and Gas Drilling Fund on December 30, 2013

SPICEWOOD, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- Spicewood Energy Management, LLC (SEM) would like to formally announce the closing of Spicewood Energy Fund II, LP (SEFII). At the request of several private partners, SEM formed and closed this year-end, IDC structured drilling fund on December 30, 2013.

SEFII was created to participate in non-operated oil and gas wells throughout Texas and Louisiana. All working interest will be in wells that are drilled in time to qualify for tax benefits in the 2013 calendar year. "We are still in full stride raising capital for Spicewood Energy Fund I, LP, but at the request of several private partners who were seeking quick year-end tax minimization strategies, we formed SEFII which will serve to provide them with an 80%-90% IDC tax write off for 2013 along with 15% tax free income," stated Waylan Johnson, President of SEM.

Mr. Johnson further stated, "It was quite encouraging when we went to the market place, utilizing some of our long standing relationships with other well-known oil and gas companies, the quality of drilling deals we were able to acquire for this fund. I believe we have created a nice diversified portfolio of oil and gas properties for our partners."

SEFII has allocated drilling funds in multiple prospects and expects to start reporting results within the next 60 days.
