BOWLING GREEN, KY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/24/13 -- Allied Energy, Inc. ("Company") (OTC Pink: AGGI) today announced updates relating to its operations.
J.T. Fields-Berry Wells, Caldwell County, TX: During March 2013, the Company began the development of five wells in Caldwell County, TX, consisting of four existing wells and one newly-drilled well. Our engineers are targeting both the Buda and Austin Chalk formations in each of the wells; thus far, one well has been completed in both zones, three wells have been completed in the Buda formation only, and one well has been completed in the Austin Chalk formation only.
As of May 2013, the wells have been placed on pump and are now in the "flow-back" stage, during which time remaining treatment fluids are being recovered. We are beginning to see an "oil cut" in the returning fluids, with total average aggregate production for all five wells ranging from 25 to 30 barrels of oil per day ("bopd").
The costs of developing the wells located within the J.T. Fields-Berry lease are being funded by a general partnership sponsored by the Company. The partnership holds an aggregate majority working interest in the J.T. Fields-Berry wells. The Company holds a 0.1% working interest (0.075% net revenue interest), inclusive of its interests in the general partnership.
Clark #1 Test Well, Milam County, TX: During August 2012, the Company participated with an industry partner in the drilling of the Clark #1 test well, with the objective of testing the Pecan Gap formation. The Pecan Gap formation was determined to be non-productive, and Allied has elected to move "up-hole" to test and attempt completion in the Navarro Sands formation, which is known to be productive in the area. Upon that election, the industry partner transferred its interest to Allied, and the Company now owns a 100.0% working interest (77.25% net revenue interest) in the Clark #1 test well.
Pearson C1 Test Well, Milam County, TX: During August 2012, the Company participated with an industry partner in the drilling of the Pearson C1 test well, with the objective of testing the Pecan Gap formation. The Pecan Gap formation was determined to be non-productive, and Allied has elected to move "up-hole" to test and attempt completion in the Navarro Sands formation, which is known to be productive in the area. Upon that election, the industry partner transferred its interest to Allied, and the Company now owns a 100% working interest (77.25% net revenue interest) in the Pearson C1 test well.
Non-Commercial Well Update:
#1 Konvicka Well, Lavaca County, Texas: During December 2011, the Company purchased working interests in the #1 Konvicka well located on the Yoakum East Property lease. In January 2012, in an attempt to increase production, a fracking operation was scheduled and completed. Due to unknown reasons, the procedure failed. The Company's engineer has finalized a report of the failed procedure, and there are no further plans to re-complete the well. The costs of developing the #1 Konvicka well were funded by general partnerships sponsored by the Company.
Ragsdale #2 Well: During March 2013, the Ragsdale #2 well, located in Cherokee County, TX, was completed and placed on pump. The well produced approximately 20 bopd during initial production testing and during April 2013, it produced a total of 159 barrels of oil.
The drilling and completion of the Ragsdale #2 well was funded by two general partnerships sponsored by the Company. The partnerships hold a majority working interest in the Ragsdale #2 well. The Company holds a 0.25% working interest (0.1875% net revenue interest) in the well, inclusive of its interests in the general partnerships.
E. Cantrell #1: The E. Cantrell #1 well, located in Wood County, TX, was placed into production during February 2013. The E. Cantrell #1 well produced 243 barrels of oil during the month March 2013 and 72 barrels of oil during the month of April 2013.
The E. Cantrell #1 well was funded by two general partnerships sponsored by the Company. The partnerships hold a majority working interest in the E. Cantrell #1 prospect. The Company holds a 0.05037% working interest (0.03777% net revenue interest) in the well, inclusive of its interests in the general partnerships.
Acquisition of Additional Acreage in Milam County, TX: During May 2013, the Company acquired a lease in Milam County, TX, comprising 240 acres.
Additional Working Interest Acquired in the High Island Block 19S Prospect: In May 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase an additional 77% working interest in the High Island 19S Prospect, which brings the Company's total working interest ownership to 80% and a corresponding net revenue interest ranging between 59.2% and 63.2%.
Withdrawal from Participation:
North Constitution "Hooks" Prospect: In October 2012, the Company entered into an agreement to participate with industry partners in the drilling of a well in Jefferson County, TX. During March 2013, the Company executed an "exit agreement" which formally withdrew the Company from any participation or involvement in the North Constitution "Hooks" Prospect.
Disposition of Certain General Partnerships:
Rogers County, Oklahoma: The Company continues to evaluate all the interests of the general partnerships for which the Company acts as managing general partner in Rogers County, OK. The Company is conducting a review of production and expense records to determine the financial condition of the partnerships and the status of each of the partnerships wells, a large majority of which may be non-commercial. Based upon the findings of the review, we have begun to make specific recommendations either to 1) "shut-in" wells that might benefit by a future rebound in the market prices of gas, 2) plug and abandon wells deemed to be non-commercial, or 3) continue to operate wells that are profitable or may be candidates for enhancement procedures or re-engineering to improve production.
It is anticipated that some of the general partnerships sponsored by the Company holding interests in wells in Rogers County, Oklahoma may be terminated due to non-profitable operations.
