Strata-X announces ASX listing update and the purchase of producing properties for the development of the Vail Oil Project
Wednesday, Feb 06, 2013
The directors and management of Strata-X Energy Ltd ("Strata-X" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SXE) are pleased to provide an update on the Company's co-listing on the Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX") and to announce that its subsidiary company, Strata-X, Inc., has completed and closed a Transaction to purchase three producing oil and gas leases ("Transaction") in the State of Illinois, USA to further the development of the Vail Oil Project.
The acquired properties cover 160 gross acres and include a total of six wells, of which four are producing, one is shut-in and one is an active salt water disposal well. Strata-X, Inc. will be the operator of the properties. The total cost of the Transaction was $306,900 USD. Currently, the wells are producing approximately five barrels of oil per day. The leases and wells acquired in the Transaction will assist the Company in its exploration of the Vail Oil Project by providing increased well control in the area in which the Company intends to drill its first horizontal well, thereby reducing drilling risk. Strata-X interprets there is significant production potential remaining in this field and is planning to carry out modern enhanced production methods to extract this potential including the use of multistage hydraulic fracture completions. Strata-X is a first mover on the Vail Oil Project and in order for the Company to continue the low cost entry advantages of being first mover, it does not plan to reveal the exact location of the Vail Oil Project until a later date.
Further to the Company's press release dated December 21, 2012, the Company is moving forward with its co-listed Initial Public Offering of shares on the Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX"). The Offering was opened on January 7th, 2013 and is expected to close on February 8th, 2013. The Company anticipates February 20th, 2013 will be the first day the stock is traded on the ASX and will be traded under the ticker symbol "SXA". The Company's existing shares will continue to be traded on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "SXE".
