公司总裁兼首席执行官Allan D. Keel说：“我们很高兴能购买这样一个美国北部的大油田。这种新型二叠纪地质的存在为我们提供了堆叠产油层构造的多年详细数据，我们预计将在今年九月或十月开始钻探工作。现金加成交费这种独特的交易结构使得资金的灵活性更高，也让我们可以通过内部现金流资本项目使得产油量、现金流和储备金有所增长。随着资产的不断发展与壮大，我们将继续保持资产负债表和财务灵活性的良好势头。”

Contango Oil & Gas Company (NYSE MKT:MCF) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with a private oil and gas company to purchase one-half of seller’s interests in approximately 12,100 gross undeveloped acres (~5,000 net acres) for up to $25 million in the Southern Delaware Basin of Texas, currently one of the most active and economically attractive oil and gas basins in the United States.
The purchase price is comprised of $10 million in cash at initial closing and $10 million in carried well costs expected to be paid over the next 14 months. Certain additional contingent payments upon success would increase total consideration to $25 million. The purchase is subject to finalization of title due diligence and customary closing conditions and adjustments with an initial closing expected later this month.
Allan D. Keel, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said:”We are pleased to be in one of the premier oil fields in North America. This new Permian presence provides a multi-year inventory across a stacked pay formation that we expect to commence drilling in September or October of this year with our existing staff. The unique deal structure of part cash, part carry and part success fee gives us some financial flexibility and allows us to grow production, cash flow and reserves through a capital program that is expected to be funded with internally generated cash flow. As we grow and develop our Permian asset, we will continue to focus on maintaining our strong balance sheet and financial flexibility.”
