Puissant Industries Inc. Announces Proved Oil and Natural Gas Reserves at December 31, 2013
London, KY US, March 19, 2014 /FSC/ – Puissant Industries, Inc. (PSSS – OTCQB),(“Puissant” or the “Company”) (Corporate Website: psss.co), an independent energy company currently focused on the natural gas and liquids rich portion of the Devonian shale play in Eastern Kentucky, today announced that based on an independent engineering report its proven natural gas and oil reserves at December 31, 2013 were 15.950 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas, .197 million barrels of oil, and .327 million barrels of natural gas liquids (NGL) or 3.182 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE)(1Bbl = 6 Mcf basis).
The present value, discounted at 10%, of the estimated future net cash flows before income taxes (PV-10) of the Company’s total proved reserves at December 31, 2013 was $29.227 million. The PV-10 was determined using the 12-month unweighted average of the first-day-of-the- month oil, natural gas and NGL prices for 2013 of $96.94 per barrel of oil $3.671 per million British thermal units (MMbtu) and $36.68 per barrel of NGL respectively adjusted for quality, energy content, and other expenses.
This engineering report represents an increase of 20% in BOE from the 2.650 million BOE in the last engineering report at December 31, 2012. These proved reserve additions equate to replacing 1736% of the Company’s full year 2013 production. The PV-10 of $29.227 million was an increase of 61.62% from last year’s report of $18.084 million.
PV-10 is a non-GAAP financial measure and generally differs from Standardized Measure, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, because it does not include the effects of income taxes on future net revenues. PV-10 is not an estimate of the fair market values of the properties. Puissant and others in the industry use PV-10 as a measure to compare the relative size and value of proved reserves held by companies and the potential return on investment related to the companies properties without regard to specific tax characteristics of such entities.
