The purchased interests in the Gulf of Mexico include Garden Banks Blocks 738,782,785,826 and 827, subject to certain depth limitations. Callon now owns a 100% working interest in the Entrada Field and is the operator.
The Company also announced the closing of a seven-year, $200 million senior secured revolving credit facility with Merrill Lynch Capital Corporation, secured by a first priority lien on Callon's Entrada properties, to finance the initial purchase price of the acquisition and a portion of the related development costs.
"Acquiring this additional interest in Entrada is a continuation of a plan that we put in place in 1998 to explore and develop deepwater Gulf of Mexico reserves," explains Fred Callon, chairman. "Now that this transaction is closed, we're actively working on finalizing a production handling agreement with ConocoPhillips Company and Devon Energy. Additionally, we are working toward completion of detailed engineering plans for Entrada's development. Our target is to have first production by early 2009."
Callon Petroleum Company is engaged in the exploration, development, acquisition and operation of oil and gas properties primarily in the Gulf Coast region. Callon's properties and operations are geographically concentrated in Louisiana, Alabama and the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
