The Assets consist of 29 natural gas wells, 10 producing and 19 shut-in, plus associated acreage, additional miscellaneous leases, associated pipelines, gathering systems, compression and processing facilities, and related yards and equipment, located in Sweet Grass and Stillwater counties, Montana – comprising of the Rapelje, Lake Basin and Six Shooter Fields. The Assets also include oil properties consisting of 58 oil and injection wells with associated acreage located in Musselshell and Rosebud Counties, Montana – 12 proved developed producing wells, 25 proved developed non-producing wells, and 21 injection wells – comprising of the Sumatra and Big Wall / Little Wall fields. The oil properties currently generate approximately $1.1 million in annual gross revenues

 

Closing of the purchase and sale of the Assets is scheduled to occur on or before sixty (60) days following the full execution of the Agreement (“Closing”). At Closing, (i) the Seller and the Company will execute an assignment and bill of sale, (ii) the Company will pay the balance of the purchase price to the Seller, and (c) the parties will execute such other documents as may be reasonably requested.
