05:01 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas to farm out 31.25% of working interest in Hawk Springs Project
Samson Oil & Gas announced that it has agreed to farm out a total of 31.25% of its working interest in its Hawk Springs Project to three other companies. Samson agreed to farm out 25% of its interest to one company effective April 28 and will be farming out another 6.25% to two other companies on substantially identical terms. These farm outs of Samsonís interest are intended to spread the financial risk of the exploratory phase for the Hawk Springs Project whilst retaining a significant post sell down equity. The collective farm out is in two stages. In the first stage, the farmees will fund a total of 41.67% of the Bluff #1-11 well through the tanks and will thereby earn a 31.26% working interest in that well and the remaining Bluff prospect acreage. Samson will retain 35.41% in the Bluff well while paying 25% of the drilling and completion cost of the well through the tanks. The farmees will then have the right to participate in the development wells in the Bluff prospect at their earned interest. In addition, they will also have the right to participate in a second prospect in the Hawk Springs Project by paying the same farm out percentages as in the Bluff well. If that occurs, the farmees will own their earned equity in the second prospect and, their earned equity times Samsonís interest in the balance of Samsonís Hawk Springs acreage. Samson has identified a suitable rig to drill the Bluff well which is in the process of being inspected. The rig will importantly include a top drive which is useful in drilling the Permian salt section. Samson is currently in commercial discussions with the rig owners to finalize the contract for a rig. Samson currently anticipates spudding the Bluff #1-11 well in June of this year.

Production has decreased significantly from July due to new and legacy wells in North Stockyard being shut in for offset fracs. These wells will be put back on production during September as the offset fracs are completed. The lost production is expected to be made up once these wells are restored to production due to the additional fracturing resulting from the new well fracs. The infill development plan for North Stockyard consists of 8 middle Bakken wells that have been drilled and 22 Three Forks wells. The Three Forks wells consist of 8 First Bench Three Forks wells, 6 Second Bench Three Forks wells, and 8 Third Bench Three Forks wells. The Matilda Bay 2-15H is currently flowing and has produced an average of 344 BOPD over the course or the last week. The Matilda Bay 1-15H will remain shut in until the Bootleg 6, 7, and 8 fracks are completed. The Billabong 2-13-14HBK well is presently scheduled to be fracked at the end of Sept and the frack will consist of 35 stages. The Bootleg 4 & 5 wells were flowed back briefly but are currently shut in for the Bootleg 6, 7, & 8 frac. Bootleg 6, 7, and 8 are set to have wireline work done for pressure testing. The fracks are scheduled for the last half of Sept. Each well is programmed for a 30 stage frack. Frontier Rig 24 was released from Bootleg 8 and was moved to the TF north pad. Currently it is being rigged up on the Ironbank 4 location where it is scheduled to drill two eastern laterals in the TF-1 bench.
