Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Announces Letter of Intent for the Sale of Crossroads Oilfield, Lea County, New Mexico

HOUSTON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: EOR; OTCQX: EORIF) announces that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Ridgeway Arizona Oil Corp. (collectively with EOR, the "Company"), has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent with a non-affiliated third party, "Purchaser", for the sale of all of the Company's rights, title and interest in the Crossroads oilfield, located in Lea County, New Mexico. The purchase price is $10.0 million (U.S.), subject to certain post-closing adjustments and conditions. The sale is subject to completion of due diligence by the Purchaser, which is arm's length to the Company, negotiation and execution of a definitive sales agreement and regulatory approval. Riviera-Ensley Energy Advisors acted as the marketing agent and broker for the Company in connection with the transaction. Riviera-Ensley Energy Advisors is a full service acquisition and divestiture transaction advisor serving the energy sector for over 20 years.  More than twenty entities reviewed the field's geological and operating information, with the Company receiving four bids, including the Purchaser's bid.  The Company has agreed to pay Riviera a fee of $210,000 upon closing of the sale with the Purchaser for conducting the confidential marketing and solicitation of bids for the property interests.

Subject to completion of the Purchaser's due diligence and execution of a definitive sales agreement, the transaction is expected to close on or before September 15, 2014 with a post-closing settlement following receipt of all required state of New Mexico regulatory approvals. If the transaction is ultimately completed, the effective date for the transaction will be September 1, 2014, the date upon which the Purchaser assumes financial obligations and consequences arising from the operation of the field. As the transaction constitutes a "Reviewable Disposition" within the meaning of Policy 5.3 of the TSX Venture Exchange, the transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

As previously reported, following a costly workover in the Crossroads field in the first quarter of 2014, the Company decided not to incur further development costs in the Crossroads field associated with high risk wellbores and undertook a number of initiatives to raise additional funds and has restricted its operations to those matters necessary to sustain production, reduced personnel and overhead and postponed certain remedial operations.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the disposition of the Crossroads field to pursue new opportunities that diversify the Company's asset base, pay accounts payable and for general corporate purposes.
