Who we are.
We are Rhodes Capital Partners, a Yazoo City based private equity fund. From the shores of the mighty Mississippi to the shores of Somalia, we scour the globe’s least understood places for opportunity. All to provide our investors with extraordinary returns.
What is fracking?
We’re not experts, but our understanding of the process is as follows. Natural gas was placed deep underground in rocks by God. The only way to release this gas is to drill a hole in the ground into which a steam powered jackhammer is placed. The rocks are then pulverized. The natural gas rises through the water table to the surface, and the ground water filters out the impurities and toxins. Day laborers then collect the gas wherever it bubbles up.
Why frack Africa?
Africa. A giant isle of mystery. Herodotus thought it was home to a people who spoke like bats. Nineteenth century cartographers thought a mountain range ran through its east. We think it floats on top of an ocean of natural gas.
Our business plan.
We seek an African government official, politician, or strongman to partner with. Using hundreds of millions of dollars of debt financing provided by the IMF and the World Bank, we will purchase a few drills, and keep the rest for ourselves. We will live like chiefs, and sip dry gin on the shores of Mozambique.
Victorica Falls, one of the world's largest waterfalls, is also one of the world's largest sources of natural gas.
Friendly elephants will provide night security at a low cost.
