S&P Capital IQ announced today that it has commenced Standard & Poor’s Factual Stock Report coverage on Sintana Energy, Inc.

Sintana Energy Inc. (TSXV: SNN; OTC: DRFLF) engages in the acquisition, exploration, development & production of petroleum and natural gas properties, primarily in Colombia and Peru.

During 2011, the company acquired a 25% interest in 175,000 acres in the Bayovar Block XXVII in the Sechura Basin, Peru; and a 30% interest in 108,336 acres in the Talora Block, and a 30% interest in 272,021 acres in the COR-39 and COR-11 Blocks in the Magdalena Basin, Colombia.

In May 2012, Sintana announced that it had completed its previously announced business combination (the "Business Combination") with ColCan Energy Corp.

The principal purpose of the Business Combination is to combine interests in oil and natural gas blocks held by Sintana with those held or in the process of being acquired by ColCan in Colombia. ColCan contributed its interest in VMM-37 by virtue of its ownership of Patriot Energy Sucursal Colombia, the owner on record with the ANH, and its private participation investments in two other blocks in Colombia's Middle Magdalena basin, VMM-4 and VMM-15, and one block located in the Llanos basin, LLA-18.
