CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Quattro Exploration and Production Ltd. ("Quattro" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: QXP) is pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced Donalda acquisition having an effective date of February 1st, 2014.
As previously announced, the acquisition, from a private Alberta-based company, includes a combination of 1,000 mcf/d of natural gas production along with associated gathering, compression and spare equipment. The acquisition results in the addition of 1,000 mcf/d to Quattro's Donalda facilities and a 600 mcf/day (net) increase in production. Following this acquisition, the Company's developed land base at Donalda will be 44,465 acres (net) developed and 27,810 acres (net) of undeveloped land for a total 72,275 acres(net) in the region. The Company also is scheduling further well work-overs, processing and gathering efficiencies in order to increase the Donalda production to over 3,600 mcf per day of stable, low decline production by year-end 2014.
The purchase price was $350,000 plus G.S.T. and the associated decommissioning liabilities of approximately $925,000 (net), with further post-closing adjustments as would be normally associated with an acquisition of this nature, for a total cost of $1,275,000 or $ 12,750 per flowing boe/d plus the developed and undeveloped lands. The acquisition was funded through a combination of cash on hand and current cash-flow.
Leonard Van Betuw, President and CEO commented, "Over the past 6 months, the Company continues to identify further remediation, reactivation and consolidation opportunities in its four core areas of operation. Our operational team has set a clear path to 2,500 boe/d in 2014, While the executive and Board of Directors also continue to finalize the negotiations for the increase in Quattro's debt facilities in an effort to enhance working capital necessary to provide the operations the additional capacity to accelerate our objective of achieving 6,000 boe/d before year-end 2016."
Currently the Company's budget and projections are based on the pricing of $4.25 per mcf for natural gas and a blended oil price of $80 per barrel for Western Select, which results in a blended commodity price for the Corporation of $42.50 per boe. Current operations and projections are the foundation for the funding of its 3 year Organic Plan to achieve a rate of 6,000 boe/d by year-end 2016.
