Parex Resources Announces Agreement with Empresa Colombiana de Petroleos S.A. to Develop Aguas Blancas Light Oil Field in Colombia

Parex Resources Inc. announced the execution of a formal binding agreement with Empresa Colombiana de Petroleos S.A. ("Ecopetrol") whereby Parex will farm-in to operate and earn a 50% working interest in the Aguas Blancas light oil field located in the Middle Magdalena Basin of Colombia. Ecopetrol had previously stated that it intended to offer undeveloped oil fields to industry operators. Pursuant to this strategy, Ecopetrol offered companies the opportunity to acquire up to a 50% working interest in the Aguas Blancas field in a competitive bidding process. Parex' winning bid requires investment during the initial earning phase of approximately $61 million by undertaking delineation drilling and waterflood pilot programs at its sole cost to earn a 50% working interest in the field. Subsequently, all future capital investment will provide Ecopetrol a 10% carry whereby Parex will spend 60% and Ecopetrol 40%. Revenues and operating costs will be based on the parties' 50% working interest. The initial earning phase has a term of 3 years commencing after the transfers of the existing applicable operating and environmental permits have occurred, which is expected to be in place within 1 year. Parex has agreed to provide a performance bond to Ecopetrol for the full amount of its initial phase earning commitment of $61 million. Including the initial earning phase, the farm-in agreement has a term of 25 years and the agreement has a royalty regime that is consistent with the applicable Agencia Nacional de Hidrocarburos ("ANH") contracts. Parex first entered Colombia in 2009 and now produces approximately 28,000 bopd in Colombia's Llanos Basin. Parex had identified the Middle Magdalena Basin as a key component of its strategy to grow oil production in Colombia to in excess of 50,000 bopd. Complementing the Aguas Blancas acquisition, Parex has an additional three 100% working interest exploration blocks in the Middle Magdalena Basin. Parex has ample financial liquidity to fund its development of Aguas Blancas. Along with a growing volume of profitable production, Parex has no bank debt and an undrawn credit facility of $200 million and working capital of approximately $90 million as at June 30, 2015. In addition, Parex has demonstrated the operating capabilities to implement waterflood and other enhanced recovery techniques as a result of its management's experience in the development of the large oil fields it discovered in the Neuquen Basin of Argentina.
