Raimount acquires Deep Rights in Woolford, Alberta


CALGARY, July 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Raimount Energy Inc. ("Raimount") is pleased to announce that effective July 10, 2014, it and two joint interest partners (both private companies owned and controlled by related parties) have acquired the deep petroleum and natural gas rights (the "Deep Rights") in approximately 20,900 acres of land in the Woolford area of Southwestern Alberta (the "Woolford Assets") for $420,000 from a third party operator. Under the terms of the area joint operating agreement, Raimount operates and owns a 50% interest in the Woolford Assets while each of the joint interest partners owns a 25% interest.

The Deep Rights acquired constitute all rights below the top of the Mississippian formation in the Woolford Assets including the "Alberta Bakken" formations, namely the Banff, the Exshaw and the Big Valley. The transaction combines all rights in the Woolford lands and allows Raimount and its partners to pursue the light oil resource development potential that exists in the Second White Specks and Rierdon formations (the shallow zones of interest) together with the light oil resource development potential that exists in the Alberta Bakken formations (the deep zones of interest).
