HOUSTON, TEXAS - October 24, 2012 (www.investorideas.com energy stocks newswire) EFL Overseas Inc. (OTCBB: EFLO) ("EFLO") is pleased to announce its acquisition of additional rights and interests in the Liard basin gas field and facilities located in the Kotaneelee Area, Yukon Territory, Canada (the “Assets”). Effective October 17, 2012, EFLO acquired a 30.664% interest in the Assets from Nahanni Energy Inc. and certain of its wholly owned subsidiaries (“Nahanni”). The Nahanni purchase follows EFLO’s earlier acquisition of Devon Canada’s interest (generally a working interest of 22.989%, with a working interest of 69.337% in one gas well) in the Assets. Upon closing the Nahanni purchase, EFLO became the largest interest holder in the Kotaneelee with a general interest of 53.67% and a working interest of 100% in one gas well.
"Our acquisition of the additional interest at Kotaneelee provides us with a controlling position in this exciting project", stated EFLO Chairman Henry Aldorf. "Increasing our working interest to 54% allows us to drive forward development plans and offers our shareholder's a greater potential upside."
"With the closing of the Nahanni acquisition, we are focused on actively pursuing additional interests at Kotaneelee and the surrounding area," added EFLO Chief Executive Keith Macdonald. "The larger asset base will be helpful as we evaluate our future market opportunities in the Pacific Rim, North America and the Yukon."
The Assets include 30,188 acres of land, a gas dehydration plant (capacity: 70 million cubic feet per day ("MMCFD")), one water disposal well (capacity: 6,000 barrels per day), one well temporarily shut-in for plant maintenance and two suspended gas wells, flarestack, storage tanks, airstrip, roads, gathering systems, geological data, equipment, and other transportation and camp infrastructure.
As consideration for the Assets, EFLO paid Nahanni CAD$400,000 (USD$398,550) in cash, and 1,614,767 shares of one of its subsidiaries, which are exchangeable on a one-for-one basis for shares of EFLO's restricted common stock (valued at CAD$4,100,000; USD$4,190,610). In addition, ELO indemnified Nahanni against its portion of the abandonment, reclamation and environmental liabilities associated with the Assets. EFLO intends to undertake an active development and exploration program, which is expected to defer these potential liabilities into the future.
EFLO continues to pursue the acquisition of additional working interests in the Assets.
EFLO Energy is a publicly-listed (EFLO:OTCBB) company engaged in natural gas exploration and production in the Kotaneelee Gas Project, located in the Liard Basin of south-eastern Yukon.
The Kotaneelee gas field, with its important conventional and unconventional resource development opportunities, combined with a 70 MMCFD underutilized gas plant and infrastructure, provide EFLO's operations significant scale and upside.
