SALT LAKE CITY, UT / ACCESSWIRE / November 4, 2020 / Northern Minerals & Exploration Ltd. (OTC PINK:NMEX) is pleased to provide the following corporate update on its current projects and operations.
West Lenapah Natural Gas Project:
The West Lenapah Project began selling gas through its Southern Star tap on September 1, 2020 and will see initial revenues beginning in November 2020. Current field production rate is over 400 mcfgpd, and is expected to increase as the start-up phase progresses. Additionally, the initial results from the commencement of our work-over program has delivered the expected results. Current operations are focused on continuation of the rework program, winterization of the field and maintenance of the gathering system to increase gas deliverability and sales.
The West Lenapah Project, located in Nowata County, Ok, is a joint venture between Calihoma Partners, LLC and EnergyVest Inc., to operate, produce and develop a natural gas asset covering approximately 40,000 acres of largely contiguous acreage and 1200 miles of associated gathering lines. Future operations include the startup of 45 wells, the marketing of offset lease gas, and the development of over 40 identified Mississippian and Coalbed Methane gas wells currently located within the West Lenapah Project.
NMEX owns 7% interest in Calihoma Partners, LLC. The West Lenapah Project is projected to deliver to the Joint Venture reserves estimated between 11.0 bcf and 25bfc of natural gas.
Natural Gas Prices:
During the past few months natural gas prices have increased from $1.50 to as high as $3.40 per MCF. The current price per MCF is $3.02. The dramatic increase is reported to be caused by the decline of production from the wells in the shale play of west Texas. Additionally the prediction of a hard winter for more demand is also have an effect on the price. It is thought with more employees working from home the use of natural gas will increase as the pandemic caused by COVID - 19 continues to plague our country.
The benefit of higher natural gas prices makes the Company's investment in the West Lenepah Project more beneficial to the Company's cash flow.
On October 29, 2020 the Company filed it audited financial statements on SEC Form 10K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020. This filing can be viewed by going to the SEC website: www.sec.gov
