Resolute Energy Corporation - REN - To acquire a 32% working interest in oil assets

Monday, December 31, 2012 12:47 PM
Resolute Energy Corporation  (NYSE: REN) announced that it has entered into definitive agreements, and closed an initial transaction, to acquire a 32% working interest in oil assets, including existing production and undeveloped acreage, in the Permian Basin of Texas from private parties for a purchase price of approximately $125 million. In addition, Resolute has acquired, for additional consideration of approximately $5.7 million, the option to buy the balance of working interest in the field and operations from the sellers. The initial transaction closed on December 28, 2012, and was financed with borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The transaction has an effective date of October 1, 2012, and is subject to customary conditions and post-closing purchase price adjustments. The assets are located in Ector and Midland counties, Texas and cover approximately 4,660 gross (1,500 net) acres. The properties in which Resolute acquired an interest include 67 producing wells, thirteen wells awaiting completion and facilities for gathering, water sourcing and water disposal. The wells produced approximately 1,050 net barrels of oil equivalent (“Boe”) per day in the third quarter of 2012 and had estimated proved reserves of 5.1 million Boe as of October 1, 2012, of which 59% is crude oil and 82% are liquids, and 53% is proved developed. The acreage is largely held by production, and the Company estimates that a one to two rig program running for approximately 12 months would be sufficient to hold all of the acquired leases. The acquired assets comprise approximately 32% of the sellers’ interests in the properties. The remainder of the working interests in the properties can be acquired at the Company’s option for additional consideration of approximately $261 million, under substantially the same terms as the initial transaction, at any time between now and March 18, 2013. The option fee of $5.7 million will be credited toward the purchase price if the option is exercised by Resolute. Growth potential exists from approximately 45 vertical drilling locations targeting the Wolfberry interval and 69 uphole recompletion opportunities. Additional upside exists from the multi-pay, multi-play nature of the area, which is prospective for horizontal development, particularly in the Wolfcamp.
