Magnum Hunter Acquires Ormet Mineral Interest

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/25/2014, Location: North America

Magnum Hunter Resources Corporation closed on the purchase of approximately 1,700 net mineral acres located in Monroe County, Ohio and Wetzel County, West Virginia for approximately $22.7 million from the Ormet Corporation, et al. This acquisition will increase the Company's net revenue interest on its existing 875 acre oil and gas lease located on the related acreage from approximately 86% to nearly 100% in the Marcellus Shale formation only. Under the same agreement, the Company has also acquired an approximate 100% net revenue interest in the balance of the mineral rights to this acreage which will also include the Utica Shale formation. The Company has previously drilled three Marcellus Shale wells on the existing oil and gas lease which have been producing rich natural gas and condensate since May 6, 2014. This mineral interest acquisition adds to the Company's large drilling inventory of potential Marcellus and Utica Shale wells in these two counties of West Virginia and Ohio. The Company is already drilling the vertical section of the first dry gas Utica Shale well on the Ormet 15 Pad. This well is expected to have an approximate lateral length of 4,800 feet with an anticipated 20+ stages of fracture stimulation treatment. The current development plan includes a total of 4 gross (4 net) Utica Shale wells to be drilled, completed, and producing on this property by year-end 2014. The Eureka Hunter gas gathering system is already constructed and available for throughput once these wells are completed.

Magnum Hunter Management Comments
Mr. Rick Farrell, Senior Vice President of Land and Business Development for Triad Hunter, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Magnum Hunter, commented, "We are very pleased to announce this successful acquisition of proved reserves and mineral leases. Our Land Department has worked on this transaction for about one year now due to the complexities of dealing with a bankrupt estate. We have been highly encouraged with our Marcellus production results on this property. With this purchase, we can now drill an additional 5 Marcellus wells (total of 8). By owning the Utica mineral rights acquired, we also have a new opportunity to drill another 7 new wells which appear to be geologically well situated based upon our Stalder Pad production results and the recent data obtained from drilling, logging, and fracture stimulating the Stewart Winland 1300 UH located immediately across the Ohio River in West Virginia. Therefore, this 1,700 net mineral lease acquisition allows for a total of 15 wells, approximately 100% of which will be owned by Magnum Hunter."
