AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (AMEX: FPP) announced today details of a hedging agreement that it has in place for the first half of 2012.
Ray Reaves, President and CEO for FieldPoint stated, "As most of you know, during the second half of last year the board of directors decided that it would be wise to protect cash flow by hedging, and we put in place a costless collar with an $85 floor and $102.50 ceiling. That was in effect from July 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. When it became time to replace this program, we were able to obtain a costless collar with a $95 floor and $106.50 ceiling. The Company decided to hedge 200 barrels per day, believing that in this price range this would give us sufficient protection should dramatic price reductions occur, even though this represents about half of our current daily oil production. This hedging agreement will be in effect until June 30, 2012."
Mr. Reaves went on to say, "Hedging provides insurance against lost revenue, and like most insurance, you hope that you never need to collect on a claim. The costless collar provides a unique form of insurance where you also may never need to make a premium payment. I believe that your board of directors has chosen a program that is well tailored to fit FieldPoint's needs during this time period."
