The wells which are acquired by Sacgasco Limited are located within a 467-acre oil and gas lease, with production from depths between 5k and 7k feet. The property includes 2 very long-term producing wells which are having flows over 300 Mcf/day and each of these wells has produced around 4 Bcf of gas to date. At current gas prices, these flows yield gross revenue of around US$60k per month before costs with a favorable net revenue interest of more than 85 percent.
The company has also acquired property including an oil and gas lease, wells and associated production facilities for no cost, with the vendor agreeing to immediately pay approximately US$1 million cash to Sacgasco as a contribution to future abandonment costs for the acquired wells.
As per the company’s announcement, a positive trend of increasing natural gas prices is providing additional cash flow to the company. The current benchmark gas price is over US$6.50 per mcf and at these prices, each Bcf of produced gas will deliver gross revenues of US$ 6.5mn. According to Sacgasco’s Managing Director Mr. Gary Jeffery, these natural gas production and development assets will strengthen the company’s production and development portfolio in the Sacramento Basin. He also stated that this acquisition is in line with the company’s strategy of acquiring under-developed assets in the Sacramento Basin which are having upside production and development.
Very Soon, the company is going to provide an update on the initiatives which the company has taken to enhance the current production from its 30-well portfolio in California with some new exciting work-over opportunities identified. Further, the company will also provide an update on its progress in evaluating the large Alvares appraisal prospect, including encouraging geological interpretation.
