Imperial Resources, Inc.; Green Tide Oil Cut Exceeds Expectations
Imperial Resources, Inc.; Green Tide Oil Cut Exceeds Expectations PR Newswire AUSTIN, Texas, April 9, 2013 AUSTIN, Texas, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Imperial Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: IPRC) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Imperial Oil & Gas, Inc. (together the "Company", "Imperial") is pleased to announce that a consistent, better than expected average oil cut has been achieved at its Green Tide Salt Water Disposal Facility ("Green Tide"). As announced on February 11, 2013 the oil cut recovered from water accepted for disposal, although small in percentage terms, is projected to form a material proportion of overall Green Tide revenues. At that time an oil cut of 0.25% to 0.5% was expected after optimization of the Green Tide plant, with oil sales expected to form less than half of total Green Tide revenues. The Company is delighted to report that during the course of the previous calendar quarter the average oil cut recovered for sale has, on average, exceeded the maximum 0.5% expected. This, combined with firm oil prices, has led to oil sales income exceeding water disposal revenues. The Company believes that the Green Tide engineering improvements have contributed significantly to this strong oil cut, but there remains a possibility that the plant also received excessively oil rich water during the first calendar quarter. The Company continues to monitor and evaluate the situation. As time passes it will be more apparent as to the exact contributions of the factors that could have influenced this improvement. During the course of the first calendar quarter of 2013 the Company has sold a total of 6 truck loads of oil, totalling well in excess of 1,000 barrels of oil. A further load is anticipated to be sold in early April. Oil prices remain firm. Daily average water disposal rates steadily increased month on month in the quarter, largely due to the effect of a recent extension of operating hours and the availability of additional personnel. Green Tide achieved substantial operating profitability during the quarter through the combined increase in income from both water disposal fees and oil sales. The Company believes sustained profitability will build further value in its primary asset. The Company also sees these results as indicative of the potential high net income Green Tide may generate if daily water disposal volumes can be further increased towards the fully permitted levels of 15,000 barrels of water per day.
