CALGARY, Dec. 21 /CNW/ - Kallisto Energy Corp. (TSX Venture: KEC) (formerly Arrow Energy Ltd. - AOF) ("Kallisto" or the "Company") announces that it has received a Sproule Associates Limited letter report as of December 31, 2009 (November 2009 Sproule Prices) (the "Report") on its Pembina, Alberta oil property. The Report is a precursor to the annual NI 51-101 reserve report that is expected to be completed early in February, 2010. The Company has submitted the Report to its lenders for their review and is in discussions with the lender to normalize its loan facility.
The following is a summary of the Report findings:
Reserves - Company Gross (Mboe) 215.7 518.2
NPV10 - BT (M$) 6,483 12,469
2010 production - Company gross (boe/day) 87 144
The Report assumes the drilling of 7 wells (1.75 net) in the proved case, 9 wells (2.25 net) in the proved plus probable case (of which three wells have been drilled to date) and confirms that the economics for this project are strong and provide a significant value lift to shareholders. An additional 3 wells planned for the project area (making a total of 12 wells) are considered possible for which no value has been given in the Report. A summary of the key project metrics is shown below:
F&D costs ($/boe) 8.95 6.52
NPV10 per net well - BT (M$) 3,705 5,542
NPV10 - BT ($/boe) 30.06 24.06
IRR (BT) 179% 281%
P/I Ratio (BT) 6.62 10.32
The Report assumes that the Company exercises its purchase option to increase its working interest to 25%. The funds required to exercise the purchase option have been taken into account in the Report and are expected largely to be paid out from net revenues generated from the Pembina wells.
This Report does not include Kallisto's other oil and gas properties. A June 30, 2009 mid-year reserve report prepared by Sproule valued Kallisto's other proved reserves at $8.8 million (NPV10 - BT) and its proved plus probable reserves at $13.3 million (NPV10 - BT).
Kallisto is a Calgary-based junior resource company engaged in the exploration, development and production of natural gas and oil primarily in Alberta.
