Vancouver, British Columbia / ACCESSWIRE / Aug 7, 2014 / Jagercor Energy Corp. (JEM:CSE) ( the "Company" or "Jagercor") is very pleased to announce that it has entered into a Development Agreement (the "Agreement") with Central International Corporation Sucursal Argentina (“Central”), an upstream oil and gas operator in Argentina, to fund the drilling of three wells at Catriel Oeste Oil Concession, located in Rio Negro Province, Argentina. These three wells constitute the 2014 development project (the “Project”).
Under the terms of the Agreement, Jagercor will pay approximately US$4,200,000 under certain conditions. The monies will be used to drill, complete and equip three development wells. In the initial phase of the Project, 70% of gross proceeds will flow to Jagercor in order to recover its investment. Once the investment is recovered, the Company’s share of production will be 40%.
Central will be the operator for the Project. The Companies have surveyed the location that will be used to target the main objective of these wells, which is to continue developing traditional reservoirs on the top of Quintuco formation.
Catriel Oeste is ideally located for low risk development drilling in or adjacent to infrastructure and existing wells. Hundreds of wells have been drilled at this site since 1964. Central and Jagercor expect to commence drilling operations at the beginning of September 2014, subject to rig availability.
This Agreement provides Jagercor the right to extend the Project to five additional wells at the Concession Area, corresponding to the 2015 drilling campaign.
Pablo Chebli, Vice President and Country Manager of Central International Corporation Sucursal Argentina noted "We are very pleased to work with Jagercor in our Catriel Oeste Oil Concession since it will allow us to accelerate the development of our oil assets in Argentina. This is just the first step in a promising relationship between these two upstream companies."
Mr. Russo, Jagercor´s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity that we were able to accomplish within a tight schedule. It puts us right on course in order to begin execution of our plan of managing oil production in Argentina. Together with Central, a company with very high quality fields, we anticipate that drilling these three wells will develop an area that represents more than 100,000 bbls cumulative oil production for Jagercor over the next two years.”
