The Leases are located in Zavala County which is part of the Maverick Basin of Southwest Texas and downdip from the United States Geological Studies north boundary of the Smackover-Austin-Eagle Ford total petroleum system.
Eric Johnson, VP Operations at Dyami Energy stated, "We are excited by the potential for hydrocarbon production from our existing acreage blocks. Both leases are in prime areas of the Eagle Ford Shale oil window as indicated by the recent results of Petrohawk's announced 355 barrels a day Mustang Ranch "C" #1H well southwest of our Matthews Lease and Chesapeake's recently announced initial production of 930 barrels a day from its Traylor North 1-H well, located southwest of our Murphy Lease. The successes of the majors in neighbouring leases and the blanket nature of the Eagle Ford Shale support our own data and correlative logs indicating we are on track to have our own successes. We are also looking forward to expanding the play by testing the Edwards formation below the Eagle Ford and analyzing fresh data on a heavy oil field found on our Matthews Lease, where prior engineering studies delineate approximately 150 million barrels of heavy oil in several San Miguel stacked sands."
There are approximately 29.7 million shares issued and outstanding in the capital of the Company after giving effect to the issuance of shares associated with closing the Dyami Acquisition of which 1.7 million are held in escrow pending confirmation of 100,000 barrels of oil or natural gas equivalent of proven reserves on the Murphy Lease or below the San Miguel formation on the Mathews Lease.
