Amazing Energy Announces Closing on Financing for Its First Horizontal San Andres Well
PLANO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 6, 2018 / Amazing Energy Oil and Gas Co. (OTCQX: AMAZ) (“Amazing”, “Amazing Energy”, or “the Company”), today announced that it has closed on a transaction providing the Company with financing that it will apply to the drilling and completion of a new horizontal San Andres well. The investment was made by Joint Venture Working Interest Partners (“the Partners”) that will pay 100% of drilling and completion costs of a newly planned horizontal well. In exchange the Partners will receive 50% Working Interest in the well-bore after a preferred payout of invested capital.
The new well, planned to be drilled in December 2018, will be a 3,000 to 4,500-foot Total Measure Depth horizontal including a 2000 to 2,500-foot lateral section that will test the prolific San Andres formation. The well represents the first horizontal San Andres well drilled by Amazing. Previously, Amazing Energy has been focused on shallower, vertical wells targeting the Queen formation. The San Andres formation is well known as a significant regionally productive zone in the Permian Basin. Many of Amazing’s large independent peer companies have seen tremendous production growth because of San Andres exploitation.
“We are pleased to announce closing with our new financial partners for the drilling and completion of our first horizontal well,” stated Willard McAndrew, III, Amazing Energy’s Chief Executive Officer. “Transitioning to horizontal drilling and into a well-known regional zone like the San Andres is a crucial step in the growth of our Company. These wells have been known to produce high-impact production results and have escalated the growth rate of many of our peers in the area. We were able to collect volumes of scientific data from the WWJD #31 well that we drilled earlier this year. Four samples from #31 in the San Andres showed porosity as high as 23% and oil saturation up to 17%. At approximately 600 feet thick overall, the San Andres displayed intervals covering five distinct sections and a sweet spot that we will target at over 170 feet of pay-thickness. By taking care in gathering and evaluating our scientific data, we have opened a new chapter in Amazing’s corporate story and are excited to see the results produced by the drill bit.”
