JayHawk Acquires 16-Mile Pipeline, Adjacent 6,500 Acres
JayHawk Energy, Inc. announced the commencement of its drilling program on the Uniontown Project, and the closing of the Purchase and Sale Agreement with Galaxy Energy Inc., a private company.
The closing of the acquisition completes the purchase of assets in the Crawford and Bourbon counties of Kansas, obtaining a 100% working interest in a 16-mile gas pipeline as well as the gas production within 6,500 acres of contiguous land adjacent to the pipeline, for a total of $2 million. The production consists of a modest 16BOEPD (100Mcf) of Coalbed Methane Gas from seven (7) connected wells out of thirty-four (34) wells. No debt has been assumed from the acquisition, which closed on Monday March 31, 2008, subject to terms and conditions of the Purchase and Sale Agreement.
"Our first step will be to dewater the seven (7) tied-in wells, and then connect the additional 27 wells on our way to maximizing production in this area," stated Lindsay Gorrill, President and CEO of JayHawk Energy Inc. "These assets combined with our Uniontown project provide over 4,100 drilling locations with a net interest of 100% to JayHawk Energy, significantly expanding our South Eastern sector asset base as a 'core area' with the acreage positions adjacent to each other," added Gorrill.
"We have also commenced our drilling program on the previously acquired Uniontown acreage, in which we expect to drill a maximum of four (4) wells per month with, and with weather permitting, tie-in all productive candidates. We anticipate production of approximately 40 Mcf per well, and with increased gas prices, aim to be cash-flow positive on this project by December of this year, with up to 36 new wells, and up to 70 tied-in," concluded Gorrill.
