Epsilon announced the execution of a letter of intent for the development of a potential oil play in the southern U.S. with a large US-based private land owner ("land owner"). Pursuant to the letter of intent, the parties will set out the details of their relationship in a joint venture agreement, to be effective no later than October 1, 2010. Under the principal terms of agreement, Epsilon is committed to drill a minimum of two wells at an estimated cost of US$ 10 million and, in turn, Epsilon will earn 60% of land owner's available mineral interests in the approximate 15,800 gross/13,600 net acres it owns or controls.
Zoran Arandjelovic, Epsilon's Executive Chairman, President and CEO, stated, "We are extremely pleased to be partnering with this large land owner and consider it a very advantageous strategic move for Epsilon to better balance its oil and gas interests. The acreage subject to the proposed joint operating agreement is in the immediate proximity of an existing producing oil fairway. Epsilon will drill two lateral wellbores to test horizontal enhancement of the oil play. We expect the expenditures on this project to commence in the second quarter of 2011."
