09:14 EDTBXEOrange Capital to engage Bellatrix with recommendations on strategic alternative
Orange Capital intends to engage Bellatrix Exploration in discussions regarding opportunities to maximize shareholder value. Orange Capital intends to discuss Bellatrix hiring an independent financial advisor tasked to provide the board with recommendations on strategic alternatives, capital allocation and improved investor communications; the size and composition of the board; steps to raise the Bellatrix's valuation to be in line with its intrinsic value, which current valuation is well below the Issuer's intermediate sized company peers in the Canadian exploration and production sector; refraining from future dilutive equity issuances and outlining a clear use of proceeds for all newly raised capital; and exploring alternatives to highlight the value of the Issuer's infrastructure assets, including but not limited to improving disclosure on the cost and fair market value of the Issuer's midstream infrastructure and/or exploring a possible joint venture, initial public offering or sale of the Issuer's midstream assets. Orange Capital intends to discuss such matters identified above not only with Bellatrix management and the board, but also with other shareholders of the Issuer and third parties and may take other steps to bring about changes to increase shareholder value.

08:09 EDTBXEBellatrix Exploration sees Q4 production averaging approximately 45,000 boe/d
Bellatrix recently completed a tuck-in acquisition of working-interests in the Company's core Ferrier area in West Central Alberta, extending the Company's Cardium light oil resource play. The acquired assets included current low decline rate net production of approximately 300 boe/d. Bellatrix has entered into a farmin arrangement encompassing 12 gross sections of Mannville rights and 6 gross sections Cardium rights in the Ferrier area of West Central Alberta. Under the arrangement, Bellatrix has committed to drill a minimum of 6 wells into the Cardium interval and 6 wells into the Mannville interval. By drilling these wells, Bellatrix will earn the farmor's entire working interest in either the Cardium or Mannville for each section drilled, but reserving a 15% gross overriding royalty payable on Mannville wells and a 7.5% to 12% gross overriding royalty payable on Cardium wells to the farmee. As a result of an underground fire that occurred in downtown Calgary on October 11, 2014, the Company's corporate head office is temporarily without power and therefore closed. City officials currently estimate the outage will last until Thursday, October 16, 2014. As previously announced, two third-party operated gas processing facilities served Bellatrix with notice of their requirement to shut in for 3 days and 5 days, respectively, to facilitate necessary maintenance during the month of September. As a result, Bellatrix announced a reduction to third quarter production guidance on September 11, 2014. The first facility was shut in for 7 days, curtailing the Company's production by 2,000 boe/d gross during the shut in period while the second facility was offline for 19 days resulting in the additional loss of 16,800 boe/d gross during the shut in period. After giving effect to the aforementioned and continued tightness in available processing capacity, Bellatrix's daily production averaged approximately 38,000 boe/d in the third quarter of 2014. This represents a 5% increase over second quarter 2014 production volumes of 36,342 boe/d and a 74% increase over third quarter 2013 volumes of 21,852 boe/d. Currently fourth quarter production is estimated to average approximately 45,000 boe/d. The Company plans to employ 8 rigs throughout the fourth quarter of 2014.
