Calgary, Canada: - Transeuro Energy Corp. ("Transeuro" or the "Company") announces that the Company has signed a non-binding Heads of Agreement to acquire an oil and gas company with stable existing production revenue, development activities plus a solid appraisal and exploration portfolio. The transaction is subject to inter alia completion of an equity financing for the combined entity, detailed due diligence by both parties, third party approvals, regulatory and stock exchange approvals and restructuring of the Company's bond. The Company is working with its advisors to secure the required investor interest and support from the bond holders and will provide updates as appropriate.
In Canada, gas prices at the Spectra pipeline sales point have increased during the past few months, however production from the Beaver River field remains shut in and will resume when the Company has secured a merger or acquisition. With the recovery in gas prices the preferred strategy is now to continue development of the asset without farming out an interest in the field.
Given the recent political events and the unsuccessful operational results in Ukraine the Company has ceased all operations in the country related to the previously held Karlavskoye and Krasnapolianskoye licenses and any further progress on the Joint Activity Agreement will only be to support the exit process. Progress on the Povorotnoye field is dependent on the ability of Aleator to secure funding for the Povorotnoye-105 well.
In Jordan the Company has begun the process of registering the local operating entity to support the Natural Resource Authority in progressing the Enhancement Program Agreement through the various government procedural steps and Parliamentary approval. The Company has received interest from third parties to farm in to the project and provide funds to cover the first phase of testing and the installation of artificial lift that is expected to achieve continuous production at flow rates significantly higher than the present intermittent flow from the Hamza field.
Aage Thoen, Chairman of the Board commented, "Various initiatives have been taken with the purpose of resolving the Company's financial challenges and as part of that we have held constructive negotiations with selected companies that will secure additional production revenue and create a stronger asset portfolio. We are happy to have signed an HoA with a company of great strategic fit and hope to conclude the acquisition in the near term.".
