ALPHA ENERGY, INC. signs definitive agreement to acquire 6 producing and 28 additional oil and gas well bores in Oklahoma
HOUSTON, Feb. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alpha Energy, Inc. (OTC.PK – APHE) (“Alpha”) announced today it has entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Progressive Well Service, LLC (“Progressive”) to acquire 34 oil and gas assets in Oklahoma in the Coral Project.
The Coral Project is approximately 2,080 gross acres of developed and undeveloped proven production in the Cherokee Uplift in central Oklahoma and includes 34 well bores, six of which are active.
Effective February 17, 2022, Alpha entered into a definitive Purchase and Sale Agreement (“PSA”) with Progressive to acquire the Coral Project (the “Logan 1 Project”). Under the PSA Alpha shall make a cash payment of six hundred thousand dollars ($600,000.00) less Option and Extension Payments previously tendered to Progressive (the “Project Payment”) and guarantee to Progressive a further payment of 3% of the net revenue stream from any new wells drilled in the Coral Project (the “Production Payment”) until Progressive has received an additional three hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($350,000.00). The transaction is subject to usual and customary closing conditions and is set to close on or before February 28, 2022, with an Effective Date of January 1, 2022 and a defined transition period as Alpha takes over operations.
The Company notes that the Project is west of the lands in eastern Oklahoma affected by a decision of the U.S. Supreme Court issued on July 9, 2020, McGirt v. Oklahoma, and therefore unaffected by this decision.
John Lepin, Chairman and Chief Financial Officer, said, “The addition of the Coral Project will allow us to realize upon our strategy to identify assets that are shallow, have good infrastructure and multiple potential target zones that can be acquired for a competitive price. The Cherokee Uplift offers many attractive opportunities to choose from for a company such as ours. With little or no debt we are able to acquire assets that fit our criteria, allowing us a quick route to cashflow from existing production and infrastructure that can produce economically. Additionally, the Coral Project offers significant upside for us to pursue new drilling to capitalize on increasing commodity prices. This Project will allow Alpha to establish a strong base of operations in north-central Oklahoma, to become a cash-flowing oil and gas operator, and offer a generous return on reserves.”
