Q1 Operational Update

  • Wind River Basin Project – The Company was able to successfully suspend all of its BLM leases through January 1, 2025. The Company is reviewing all available options to develop the property via joint-venture or joint development agreement. A third-party engineering report of the project located in the Wind River Basin, Wyoming, known as the Beaver Creek East Project, indicates prospective resources of approximately 21 million barrels of undiscovered oil and 37 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
  • Jubilee Exploration Acquisition – The 500+ well acquisition provides the Company with a multi-year inventory of wells to return to production to increase the reserve profile and cash flows of the Company. The Company has successfully put a few wells back online with an approximate production of 15 barrels of oil per day (“BOPD”).
  • Comanche County Acquisition – In January 2023 the Company closed on the acquisition of 21 shallow oil and gas wells, all located in Comanche County, Oklahoma, situated across four leases. The Company’s return-to-production program on these properties will consist of cleaning out existing wellbores, facility maintenance, electrical work and flowline repair work, which is expected to deliver collective production rates of 20-25 BOPD for all wells.

Q2 Operational Update

  • In April 2023, the Company’s wholly-owned indirect subsidiary, Jubilee Exploration, LLC, acquired a lease with four wells located in Jackson County, Oklahoma, from an unrelated party. The Company has already commenced return-to-production operations on the lease. The acquisition was financed from existing cash flows and is expected to add 15-25 BOPD to the Company’s production profile. The Company also believes there are potentially 3-4 offset drilling locations on the property.
  • The Company has also entered into agreements to acquire several producing and shut-in oil and gas wells from adjacent operators with a projected timeline to close on or before June 1, 2023. These acquisitions are being financed through the Company’s existing cash flows from operations.

Management will continue to focus on acquiring assets at attractive entry prices with low operating costs, operational upside, and long-lived reserves to add to the Company’s asset base in the future.
