Permex Petroleum Corporation Signs LOI to Acquire Additional Oil and Gas Assets in the Delaware Basin of Eddy County New Mexico
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – June 20, 2018 -- Permex Petroleum Corporation (“Permex” or the “Company)” (CSE: OIL) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Cameron Oil and Gas Co., Inc. (“Cameron” or “Seller"), for the purchase of all the Seller’s rights, title and interest in the SW Henshaw Premier Unit (the “Assets”) located in Eddy County, New Mexico.
Permex will acquire100% working interest with an 83.91% net revenue interest in the 840 gross acre property which is held by production (“HBP”) in the Delaware Basin of New Mexico. There are a total of 7 vertical wells, of which 2 are producing 5 barrels of oil per day and holding the acreage, as well as 5 shut in wells which provide the opportunity for Permex to re-enter and put on production for added production. The area’s geology consists of numerous formations including but not limited to the Wolfcamp, San Andres, Grayburg, Queen, Seven Rivers, and Yates formations.
"We are very pleased to move forward with our expansion plans in the Delaware Basin of New Mexico, where there has recently been tremendous production among a diverse mix of formations for both oil and gas," said Mehran Ehsan, President and CEO of Permex Petroleum Corporation. "This is yet another strategic acquisition as it is a direct offset property of our own West Henshaw Premier Unit, which puts our ownership over 3 sections in the area. We look forward to consummating our acquisition and in the short term bringing online the shut-in wells while drilling new wells in the long term on the lease.” he added.
The acquisition of the Assets represents a 33% HBP increase to Permex’s New Mexico land portfolio. The purchase price for the Assets is USD$100,000 which Permex intends to satisfy by issuing to Cameron common shares upon closing at a deemed price calculated by a 10-day VWAP.
Permex and Cameron expect to close the proposed transaction on or about July 31, 2018.
