EnDevCo Purchases Short Junction Field
EnDevCo, Inc. (OTCBB:ENDE.OB) the Energy Development Company, today announced the acquisition of 100% of all rights in the Central Unit and 98.712% in the West Unit of Short Junction Field located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma by EnDevCo Eureka, LLC for a purchase price of $11.5 million. EnDevCo Eureka is owned 55% by its parent EnDevCo, Inc. and 45% by private investors who are related parties. These investors contributed $3.0 million in equity to enable EnDevCo to consummate the transaction. EnDevCo Eureka LLC, managed by EnDevCo personnel, will be the Operator for the project with an effective date of January 01, 2006.
An aggressive well recompletion program that commenced in January of this year will now provide immediate increases in daily oil and gas production. Project financing is provided by GasRock Capital, LLC of Houston, Texas and takes the form of a $30.0 million credit facility. GasRock Capital (www.gasrockcaptial.com) provides project based mezzanine debt financing to the oil and gas industry by backing proven management teams that identify high quality exploitation projects like the Short Junction Field. Mr. Scott Johnson, GasRock Capital's Managing Director stated, "this is an attractive opportunity for both EnDevCo and GasRock with a solid foundation of proved reserves and a large upside we believe EnDevCo's management team is capable of successfully exploiting".
The 12,000 acre field includes 270 well bores and full ownership rights to a field wide natural gas pipeline and gathering system offering two independent taps into the interstate gas transmission system. The field is currently producing from only 19 wells with total daily production in excess of 100 barrels of oil per day from the Hunton limestone reservoir and 300 mcf of gas per day from the Red Fork Sand reservoir. The Company will draw down an initial $9.5 million from its credit facility to be used toward the acquisition price and operations on 13 additional well bores during the second quarter of this year. This work will be focused on the completion of bypassed gas pays and the reactivation of selected oil wells to produce shut-in proven reserves.
"Later this year, once the work program of well workovers and re-completions is further along, we will be acquiring 3D seismic over the field. This data will be utilized to guide the drilling of horizontal multi-lateral wells in the Hunton reservoir to develop the full upside potential that we have identified in the field. We believe that our application of cost effective "science before the drill bit" will greatly reduce the risk profile and improve profits for the Company while increasing value for our shareholders", said Mr. Richard G. Boyce, COO.
Mr. Chris A. Dittmar, CEO stated, "This purchase is an important milestone
for EnDevCo. It will establish for the first time, a solid and dependable cash
flow for the Company from oil and gas production. As a result, the Company finally
will be able to book Proved Reserves on its balance sheet. We are thankful for
the opportunity to prove ourselves as a "boots on the ground" Operator
of a significant oil and gas producing field. We would also like to acknowledge
and greatly appreciate, the confidence shown in our management team by GasRock
