EMERALD BAY ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION
Emerald Bay Energy Inc. (TSX Venture: EBY) (the “Company” or “Emerald Bay”) today announced that the Company has entered into an agreement whereby Emerald Bay will increase its interest in Production Resources Inc. (“PRI”) from 10% to 75% by acquiring from Tire Oil & Gas Inc. their 65% interest in PRI for $1,727,000 U.S ($2,314,180 CDN). During the year ended 2016 PRI had an average daily production rate of 60 bbls/day.
PRI is a Texas based company with its main assets located south of San Antonio Texas, being two producing oil fields, in Bexar, Atascosa and Medina counties. PRI has its own field operating equipment, including two service rigs, which gives PRI the ability to maintain efficient operations and control costs effectively. With more than 40 surveyed drilling locations for future development, Emerald Bay will work with PRI to optimize current production while putting plans in place to drill new wells.
Emerald Bay considers this acquisition to be a key step in establishing a production base in South Texas as the Company moves forward with the next phase of development of its Wooden Horse and Nash Creek plays.
Emerald Bay will use funds from the previously announced (see press release dated June 6, 2017) loan agreement with L&K Tire Inc. to facilitate this purchase. The acquisition has an effective date of June 1, 2017.
