EGPI Firecreek has signed a Letter of Intent with Capco Resources of Texas to acquire the Brown Snyder Oil and Gas Leases covering over 640 acres located near Abilene, Jones County, Texas.
EGPI has already begun due diligence and project evaluations with CAPCO in anticipation of the acquisition, including proposed Well Recompletion and Enhancement Work programs. The Company has set a projected date of July 31, 2011, to complete the acquisition of the Brown Snyder property and its oil and gas interests.
The final acquisition will be subject to final negotiations, documentation and requisite approvals. The Company expects to acquire working interests and half of the corresponding 75% Net Revenue Interest associated with the oil and gas leases, including oil and gas reserves and all assets located in Abilene, Texas, inclusive of all surface equipment associated with seven of the nine existing wells that are to be reworked, and participation rights in all future drilling activities.
The proposed operator, Chan West Oil Corporation, is evaluating potentials for a rework program on five to seven of the existing oil wells on the Brown Snyder leases. The wells are currently drilled at a depth of about 3,000 feet, and the rework procedures proposed will consist of fracing the zone at a shallower depth of approximately 2,500 feet where offset wells have shown success.
Dennis Alexander, CEO and Chairman, stated, "We look forward to working with the CAPCO management in order to move forward now that we have entered into a Letter of Intent. We also continue our plans for growth within our oil and gas division, through the acquisition of the Brown Snyder lease interests." He further stated, "We believe the upside potential for production activity and enhancement on this property, utilizing modern state-of-the-art techniques, will present an excellent opportunity for the Company."
