Abraxas Announces Agreement To Dissolve Eagleford Joint Venture And A Strategic Acquisition Of Additional Interests In West Texas

Abraxas Petroleum Corporation (NASDAQ:AXAS) today announced that it has entered into a letter of intent to dissolve its Eagleford joint venture, Blue Eagle Energy LLC. Abraxas and its joint venture partner will split the assets with Abraxas retaining a 100 percent interest in the Eagleford and shallower rights in Jourdanton, Atascosa County (4,401 net acres), a 100 percent interest in Yoakum, DeWitt County (1,868 net acres), a 25 percent interest in WyCross, McMullen County (695 net acres), and a 25 percent interest in Nordheim, DeWitt County (944 net acres). The producing wells are currently producing 205 barrels of oil equivalent per day (62 percent oil and 11 percent ngls) net to the interest retained by Abraxas. The proved reserves attributable to the Abraxas interests are approximately 2.4 million barrels of oil equivalent (27 percent oil and 25 percent ngls). The probable reserves attributable to the Abraxas interests are 3.7 million barrels of oil equivalent (54 percent oil and 15 percent ngls). Abraxas will receive a $7 million cash payment along with our share of the working capital in Blue Eagle. Abraxas, as operator, and its working interest partner will commence a ten well drilling program utilizing one rig in the WyCross area in the near future. The first well drilled at WyCross, the Abraxas Cobra #1H has produced over 98,000 barrels of oil equivalent since going on production in March of 2012 and is currently flowing approximately 430 barrels of oil equivalent per day (86 percent oil and 5 percent ngls).

“This transaction is the result of a sale process of Blue Eagle that commenced earlier this year. Initial offers for these assets were at acceptable levels but as negotiations went on, the price of oil fell precipitously, and bids were reduced to where they became unacceptable for these quality assets. This transaction allows Abraxas to eliminate the confusion regarding joint venture accounting, to count production, reserves and cash flow in its operating metrics, and importantly makes these assets available to be included in its bank borrowing base which will further enhance liquidity,” commented Bob Watson, Abraxas’ President and CEO.
