3MV Energy announces demand repayment by its Subordinated Lender, Head Office Staff Reductions and Farm-Out Agreement


CALGARY, Sept. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - 3MV Energy Corp. ("3MV" or the "Company") (TSXV: TMV) announces that the Company's lender under its secured subordinated credit facility has made a demand on the Company for repayment of all indebtedness under such facility, which is currently in the amount of $2 MM plus any unpaid accrued interest, by October 19, 2012. The demand is due to the Company being in breach of certain covenants under the facilities as a result of the Company's current working capital deficiency.

Management of 3MV is working with its lenders to come up with a plan to repay the indebtedness under the facilities.

3MV has reduced head office staff and corresponding G&A expenses for anticipated savings of approximately $50 thousand per month.

3MV also announces it has entered into a farm-out agreement with 1696704 Alberta Ltd. ("FarmCo") to drill two wells on 3MV's Fiske property, with FarmCo funding 100% of costs to completion to earn 75% interest subject to existing royalties.  FarmCo is a single purpose corporation formed by 3MV to raise $2 MM to finance the lease preserving wells on the Fiske property.  Upon 3MV completing a further $3.75 MM financing 3MV has the right to exchange 3MV shares and warrants for FarmCo shares and warrants.


3MV intends to focus its drilling and production efforts on its highly productive Fiske light oil discovery for the remainder of 2012 and into 2013. With over 34 net sections of land subject to a farm out agreement (of which the Corporation has earned and participated in 2.65 net sections) and another section (crown lease) owned by 3MV Energy, and a recent 19.9 km² 3D seismic program, 3MV Energy has identified and licensed 17 future drilling locations, eight of which the Corporation considers to be infill locations. The Corporation's recent success in the play, with three wells producing over 100 boe/d during the first 30 days of production, has led to significant reserves additions in the area and 3MV Energy intends to build off that momentum as quickly as is practicable with additional capital raised in the upcoming periods.

Oil and Gas Disclosure

For the purpose of calculating unit costs, natural gas volumes have been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") using six thousand cubic feet equal to one barrel unless otherwise stated. A BOE conversion ratio of 6:1 is based upon an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
