Upon organization of Foothills Petroleum Inc., on December 24, 2015, Wilshire Energy Partners LLC contributed its 100% membership interest in Foothills Exploration, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company, to FPI in exchange for 4,500,000 shares of FPI's common stock. At the time of contribution Wilshire Energy Partners LLC had acquired and owned rights to 38,120 acres of oil and gas leases in the State of Wyoming (as described above in Note 1, Nature of Operations) . On completion of the Share Exchange, effective May 27, 2016, Wilshire Energy Partners LLC exchanged its FPI shares for 4,500,000 shares of the Company's common stock. As a result the Company owns 100% of FPI and Foothills Exploration, LLC is now a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of the Company that retains title to these oil and gas leases. This transaction is treated as the founding transaction by the Company. The asset was valued at $72,430 at the time of transfer based on costs associated with the payment of lease bonuses, fees and taxes paid during the formation of the asset.

The prospect generation was based on a licensed 2-D seismic comprising of two seismic lines covering the Chevron/Echo – Greater Green River Basin. The asset is valued at $20,000 based on the agreement. During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company capitalized an additional $97,920 in costs related to this asset.
