Passport Energy Ltd. Announces Additional Land Acquisition Details
Calgary, Alberta CANADA, November 28, 2013 /FSC/ – Passport Energy Ltd. (PPO – TSX Venture, PPOZF – OTC),(“Passport”) provides, further to its news release dated November 27, 2013, the following additional details of the previously announced land acquisition.
Passport has entered into an agreement with a private oil and gas company to acquire 22 1/4 contiguous sections (5,760 acres) of 100% owned land in the Hardy area of SE Saskatchewan for $600,000 cash. The acquisition will be subject to certain conditions including Passport completing due diligence on the properties, obtaining a satisfactory title opinion on the properties, completing a financing, and completing the formal agreement between Passport and the vendor.
Passport believes the acreage is located in a more prospective area of the new light oil Bakken play trend that it has been exploring for the past 2 years. Over 70% of the new land block does not expire until 2017, and except for 21/2 sections, all of the acreage is encumbered by Crown Royalty only. Under the terms of the agreement, closing shall, subject to certain closing conditions, be completed on or prior to January 31, 2014.
The new acquisition of lands will allow Passport to explore the Bakken trend, in a geologically more prospective area, with better royalties, and economics and at a pace dictated by funding from capital markets and internal cash flow. This acquisition will provide Passport with a much larger acreage base in the Hardy area, with higher working interests and a significantly lower royalty structure.
The Company trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol “PPO”.
