1st NRG Corp. Reaches Terms on $7,000,000 Financing Facility
DENVER -- October 23, 2012
1^st NRG Corp. (OTC Markets: FNRC.PK, http://1stnrg-corp.com ) has reached
terms for a $7,000,000 financing facility.
Convertible Promissory Note
The Company is pleased to announce that subject to execution of final
documentation, it has agreed in principle to terms on a credit facility of up
to $7,000,000. The facility will allow the Company to draw in one or multiple
tranches as agreed to between the lender and the Company. The Note will have a
three-year term and will bear interest at 8%. Any outstanding amounts due
under the Note may be converted into the Company’s common stock at the average
of the lowest bid for the ten days prior to conversion.
Mr. Kevin Norris, CEO, said, “This is another milestone for 1^st NRG and its
shareholders. Recently natural gas prices in the Rockies have quietly
improved.” Mr. Norris went on to say; “this facility should enable the Company
to initiate development on its core properties in the Powder River Basin, the
Utica Shale in Ohio and the Niobrara Shale in Nebraska.”
Utica Shale – Eastern Ohio
The Company has entered into a Letter of Intent to develop approximately 7,150
acres in Eastern Ohio, one of the most active areas for oil, natural gas and
natural gas liquids exploration in the United States. Recently the Ohio
Department of Natural Resources released estimates of the possible Utica-Point
Pleasant recoverable reserve potential in Ohio to be between 3.75 to 15.7
trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 1.3 to 5.5 billion barrels of oil.
According to Aubrey McClendon, CEO of Chesapeake Energy, which owns the
largest leasehold in Ohio, “This is the best treasure of American energy,”
McClendon said on CNBC’s Mad Money hosted by Jim Cramer
Niobrara Shale – Western Nebraska
The Company also has entered into an agreement which will deliver an Oil and
Gas Lease and surface use agreement for 1,370 acres located in Banner County
Nebraska. We expect the area to have possibilities to develop the Niobrara
Shale which is being compared to the Bakken Shale in North Dakota. Located in
the Denver Julesburg Basin which extends from Southeast Wyoming and Southwest
Nebraska into Northeast Colorado the acreage will provide the company with
possible oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids development in the Niobrara
Shale, as well as the Codell, Greenhorn, D and J Sands. Industry estimates of
the possible Niobrara Original Oil in Place (OOIP) are 30 million BOE per
section, however recoverable oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids will
vary by area, thickness, porosity and fracture systems.
CBM – Northern Wyoming
Clabaugh Ranch - Clabaugh Ranch was acquired in October 2010 and consists of
various working interests in forty two producing coal bed methane (CBM) wells.
Coal bed methane is a source of clean natural gas. Along with the forty two
(1.22 net) drilled and producing wells, the Company holds an interest in eight
(6.00 net) permitted locations which we intend to drill in the fourth quarter
2012. The field currently produces 1,200 – 1300 MCFD and we estimate our
reserves to be about 4.8 BCF (3P).

potential which includes 1,370 acres in the Niobrara Shale in Western Nebraska

Utica Shale not only have potential oil reserves, but also natural gas and
