Properties in Oklahoma
DALLAS, Dec. 15, 2011
DALLAS, Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Blugrass Energy Inc. (OTC: BLUG)is
pleased to announce that it has entered into letters of intent with multiple
parties for the acquisition of certain interests in the Mississippian play in
Osage and Woods Counties, Oklahoma.
The assets are in two counties:
*Approximately 90% working interest ("WI") in 9 Mississippian wells on
1,680 gross acres held by production in Osage County, Oklahoma;
*Average gross daily production approximated 52.6 barrels of oil (Bbls) and
548.9 thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas for the three month period
ending October 31, 2011. Average net daily production during the period
was 35.5 Bbls and 370.5 Mcf of natural gas or 97.3 barrels of oil
equivalent based on BTU equivalent;
*A 36.9% WI in one shallow Layton oil well with approximately 32.5 gross
and 9 net daily barrels of oil production to the interest being acquired,
for the three month period ending October 31, 2011;
*A package of over-riding royalty interests in the same wells;
*An additional 640 acres of undeveloped leasehold;
*Associated field infrastructure including 14 storage tanks with 4,200
barrels of storage capacity, 10 separating units and 3 salt water disposal
*Approximately 20,000 feet of unfracked horizontal well bore, offering
potential upside based on a fracture stimulation program Blugrass is
planning for 2012;
*Average net monthly cash flow after lease operating expenses, production
and severance taxes for the interests being acquired approximated
$120,000.00 per month for the three month period ending September 30, 2011
(revenue reporting is one month behind production based on timing of gas
*A 19.5% working interest in approximately 4,000 gross acres representing
up to 25 potential drilling locations based on typical 160 acre spacing
common in the horizontal Mississippian play;
*An approximate 13.6% working interest in one drilled Mississippian well
bore awaiting completion with expected first production in spring 2012;
*A 4.6% working interest in one Hunton well bore being recompleted as a
vertical Mississippian well.
The total price for these two asset packages is $10,256,000.00. The cash
requirement to close is $1,506,000.00; convertible notes with a conversion
price of $0.05 per share in the amount of $1,650,000.00 will be issued as part
of the purchase price and the balance will be paid in Blugrass shares at $0.05
The upside of the acquisition contemplated by the letters of intent consists
of (a) opportunities to fracture stimulate the Osage County wells, (b)
additional Layton drilling opportunities, and (c) continuing development
activities in the Woods County leasehold position -- where up to five new
wells are expected to be drilled over the next 18 months.
The acquisition is subject to due diligence, financing and the conversion of
at least 80% of currently outstanding debt to common stock at $0.05 per share.
In order to accommodate the share issuances associated with the debt
conversion, the asset acquisitions and any future capital raising initiatives,
Blugrass is also planning to increase its authorized shares.
We are excited about entering the Mississippian play with this initial
acquisition. The Mississippian play has recently received considerable
attention in the industry and press as horizontal drilling and fracture
stimulation techniques have unlocked considerable reserve and production
potential from the area in which these wells are located.
Blugrass is continuing discussions with several parties about additional
acquisition and partnering opportunities.
