CALGARY, Oct. 4 /CNW/ - Result Energy Inc. ("Result", RTE-X) is pleased
to announce that on September 28 and October 4, 2007 it completed a
non-brokered private placement of common shares which consisted of 7,410,000
common shares issued on a flow-through basis for income tax purposes at
$0.60 per share (the "Placement"). The gross proceeds of $4,446,000
($4,312,620 net of finders fees payable to third parties of $133,380) is
intended to be used to finance ongoing exploration activities, and for general
corporate purposes. Result is required to incur qualifying expenditures
totaling $4,446,000 by December 31, 2008 and will renounce this amount of
Canadian Exploration Expenses ("CEE") to subscribers effective December 31,
The shares issued will be subject to a four-month hold period from the
date of each closing. Following completion of this placement, Result has
54,891,638 common shares outstanding.
Despite the ongoing softness in natural gas prices, the Company continues
to take a positive long-term outlook towards exploration and development
activities in Western Canada. Result continues to generate and carry a
sizeable drilling inventory on a variety of projects. In the near term, we
plan to shift our exploration drilling focus towards oil and liquids-rich
natural gas plays. We also expect that the market price for natural gas will
recover over the next 12 months, at which point we will be well-positioned to
ramp up activities on several large-scale natural gas initiatives. The current
Placement allows the Company to maintain momentum on several key development
projects, which will continue to underpin the Company's cash flow.
Result's current field-estimated production volume is approximately
1,065 boe/d. Volume has declined from previous record levels achieved in
Q1-07, primarily due to payout conversions on two high-volume Pembina wells.
During the Q4-07 period, Result plans to participate in the drilling of
up to 10 gross wells. The highlights of this drilling program include:
Windfall - Result has spudded the first of two wells, which will test a
new liquids-rich Devonian-aged natural gas prospect at Windfall, Alberta. The
company's working interest in these wells will be 33% and 28% respectively.
Preliminary drilling results from this project are expected in November.
Peace River Arch - Result participated in the drilling of 2.0 (1.0 net)
appraisal wells on its Devonian Eureka natural gas project during September.
Completion and testing operations on these wells are currently in progress.
The Company also plans to spud an exploratory well on a new light oil play at
Royce late in Q4, and we will resume drilling operations on our potential
high-impact Devonian gas play at Mearon as soon as winter access conditions
Kakwa - Result has recently completed the drilling of a second deep-basin
style gas well at Kakwa. This well has encountered multiple prospective
producing horizons, which are scheduled to be completed during Q4. This is a
follow-up to a successful well drilled in Q1-07, with potential tie-in of both
wells to occur in early 2008. Result's working interest in the two wells
Pembina/Modeste - During the second quarter, drilling operations were
completed on 2.0 (1.0 net) wells at Modeste, Alberta, targeting an extension
of the Company's high-deliverability Viking natural gas play. Completion,
stimulation and testing operations on these wells have been delayed to Q4 due
to extremely wet local surface conditions.
Dodsland - During Q4, Result plans to participate in the drilling of an
additional 5 to 8 development infill wells on the Company's shallow Viking gas
project at Dodsland, Saskatchewan. Over the past several months, drilling and
completion costs have declined substantially in this area, allowing the
Company to generate improved project economics.
