Pacific Energy Development Provides Drilling Plan Update and Announces Debt Conversions

DANVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - July 21, 2014) - PEDEVCO Corp. d/b/a Pacific Energy Development (NYSE MKT: PED), an energy company engaged in the acquisition and development of strategic high-value energy projects in the U.S., today confirmed that it remains on schedule to commence drilling operations in mid-August 2014 on its initial 3 horizontal wells to be drilled and completed in its recently acquired Wattenberg Asset located in Weld County, Colorado. The Company has identified all key service providers, and has cash on hand and an established drilling credit line necessary, to drill and complete these wells as scheduled. The Company plans to drill these wells from a single pad at an estimated gross cost of approximately $4.2 million per well with an approximately 45% net working interest in each, with each well planned to receive an 18 stage enhanced frac treatment with lateral lengths between 4,000 and 4,500 feet, and with completion and initial results expected to be available in mid-October 2014.

The Company also announced today that Company recently reduced its outstanding debt by converting an aggregate of over $1.87 million in outstanding debt into common stock of the Company, including the conversion of over $1.75 million owed to seven of its bridge note holders into common stock, thereby reducing the total amount of principal due under its bridge promissory notes from the original $4.0 million upon original issuance in March 2013, to $875,000 today, and the conversion of $125,500 of fees owed to former directors of the Company into common stock.

Commenting on the Company's drilling schedule and debt conversions, Frank C. Ingriselli, President and CEO of the Company, stated, "We are very pleased with our progress as we move forward with the preparations necessary to spud our initial three well program on schedule, and are encouraged by the recently announced five well 40 acre Niobrara downspacing program planned by Carrizo Oil & Gas just one mile to the north of our planned wells, which is being done on Carrizo's Hemberger lease area on which Carrizo previously tested the Niobrara in December 2012 with an initial production rate of 765 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and 512 thousand cubic feet of gas per day (mcfgpd) (850 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd)). We are further encouraged by the vote of confidence our former directors and bridge investors have in our Company, as evidenced by their recent debt conversions into our common stock, which successfully reduced our outstanding debt by over $1.87 million and strengthened our balance sheet."
