CALGARY, March 13 /CNW/ - Mystique Energy, Inc. ("Mystique") (TSXV: MYS)
announces that it has executed a forbearance agreement with its primary lender
("Lender"). The Lender has agreed to refrain from exercising certain of its
rights and remedies under the lending agreement between Mystique and the
Lender to provide Mystique sufficient time to remedy a default with regard to
Mystique's working capital deficiency.
Under the terms of the forbearance agreement, by 2007-03-23, Mystique
must complete certain steps in its restructuring plan to satisfy the Lender
that Mystique will remedy the default within a timeframe satisfactory to the
Lender. Upon completion of these steps, the Lender may extend the period of
the forbearance agreement. Mystique management is confident that the
forbearance period will be extended allowing Mystique to successfully address
its working capital deficiency.
The lender may also entertain a proposal from Mystique to extend
additional funds to finance the tie-in of one well in the Wildcat Hills area.
The well was drilled, completed and production tested in late 2006. The tie-in
of this well would add an estimated 125 barrels of oil equivalent ("boepd") to
Mystique's current production of 440 boepd, more than offsetting the 85 boepd
reduction in production that resulted from the sale of Mystique's Garrington
Based in Calgary, Mystique is involved in the exploration and
exploitation of petroleum reserves in western Canada.
Use of the term barrels of oil equivalent "boe" may be misleading,
particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is
based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the
burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
