New Source Energy Partners L.P. (NYSE:NSLP) today announced that it has acquired an additional 10% working interest from Scintilla, LLC, an entity controlled by David Chernicky, NSLP’s chairman, in fourteen recently drilled wells in the Golden Lane field in which NSLP already owned working interests. These interests were acquired for a purchase price of $3,800,000, which was financed with proceeds from borrowings under NSLP’s revolving credit facility. The transaction closed on July 23, 2013 with an effective date of May 1, 2013.
Kristian Kos, president and chief executive officer of NSLP’s general partner, commented: “The acquisition of these properties is an incremental opportunity for New Source to increase our position in these wells at what we believe is a favorable cost.”
This transaction was unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of NSLP’s General Partner, including each member of its conflicts committee.
