Securities Investigation: Scurry County Energy Fund III LP 

Scurry County Energy Fund III LP Investor Lawsuits 

Are you concerned about your investment in Scurry County Energy Fund III LP? 

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended Scurry County Energy Fund III LP to investors.  

King Operating Corp, an oil and gas investment company, promises that accredited investors can “own part of a producing oil and gas field operation in effort to supercharge wealth creation,” according to its website. 

According to filings with the SEC, the company filed a form D to raise capital for investors for the offering Scurry County Energy Fund III LP in 2017. The offering amount was purportedly $15,000,000, with sales fees and commissions estimated at close to 6% of the total offering amount. 

Oil and gas limited partnerships or drilling programs are complex, high-risk investments. Many of these programs have high expense ratios, and if the overall health of the oil and gas market declines, it could default, or worse yet, file for bankruptcy.  Such an outcome is extreme, but not unforeseen. It only highlights the unsuitability of these investments for most retail investors – particularly in large concentrations.  

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms have for recommending high-risk oil and gas programs. The firm has handled a number of claims involving drilling programs over the years.   

In those claims, the firm has alleged, among other things, that the investments were (1) high-risk and unsuitable for our clients given their financial situation, needs and investment objectives, (2) that the risks of the investment were not fully disclosed to them, and (3) that the brokerage firms that sold the investments failed to conduct the proper due diligence with respect to the investments (as the firms are required to do by FINRA Rules).  

The Risks of Oil and Gas Limited Partnerships  

The problem with oil and gas limited partnerships is they are exempt from registration with the SEC and lack the same regulatory oversight as other investment products. These types of limited partnerships often lack liquidity. The often come with high commission fees that are often 3-4x higher than more traditional investments, like mutual funds or bonds.
