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.

05:02 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas provides operational advisory
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. Frontier Rig 24 has set and cemented the 9-5/8 inch surface casing on the Bootleg 8-14-15TF2H. Presently, the intermediate section of the wellbore is being drilled at depth of 10,397 feet. Bootleg 8 is the first well in the North Stockyard field to target the Second Bench of the Three Forks. Spacing approval has been received for a total of 22 wells in the Three Forks Formation and therefore will maintain a development drilling program over the forthcoming 2 years within the North Stockyard Field. The Bootleg 5-14-15TFH frack has been completed. A total of 35 stages were successfully completed with 8.15 million pounds of sand placed. The Bootleg 4-14-15TFH frack is underway and the plan is to fracture stimulate 28 stages with a total of 4.5 million pounds of sand. A rig is on site repairing the liner on the Matilda Bay 1, but the operation has been temporarily suspended to shut-in the well for the Bootleg 4 and 5 fracks. Following the fracture stimulation the workĖover will reconvene. The Matilda Bay 2 is currently shut-in for the Bootleg 4 and 5 fracks.
