The Murphy lease is approximately 11 miles northeast of Chesapeake's (Chesapeake Energy Corporation NYSE: CHK) recently announced initial production of 930 barrels a day from its Traylor North 1-H well." Johnson further stated, "We have logs that show 380 feet of Upper and Lower Eagle Ford shale on our Matthews Lease of which approximately 160 feet is the organically richer lower Eagle Ford. Also, previous engineering reports indicate that the San Miguel formation contains 70 million barrels of heavy oil in the San Miguel D Sands and another 80 million barrels of heavy oil in the San Miguel A,B,C, Sands all within the bounds of our Matthews Lease."
Prior to closing the acquisition, Dyami Energy must satisfy Eagleford Energy that Dyami Energy has either commenced or is prepared to commence operations to drill a test well on the Matthews Lease in compliance with its obligations under the Matthews Lease.
The Transaction is scheduled to be closed by August 31, 2010 subject to satisfaction of all conditions precedent.
