Forest Oil Corporation (Forest or the Company) announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its natural gas properties located in the Arkoma Basin for after-tax cash proceeds of approximately $185 million. The transaction is expected to close on or before December 15, 2014, with an economic effective date of October 1, 2014, and is subject to customary closing conditions and post-closing purchase price adjustments. The properties produced 22 MMcfe/d (100% natural gas) during the third quarter of 2014, had estimated proved reserves of 159 Bcfe (100% natural gas) as of December 31, 2013, and generated approximately $23 million of lease-level income during the past twelve months ended September 30, 2014 (when NYMEX Henry Hub pricing averaged $4.27 per Mcf).

The aforementioned Arkoma Basin transaction is not related to Forest’s pending business combination with Sabine Oil & Gas LLC (“Sabine”), and Sabine has given its consent to the sale of Forest’s Arkoma Basin assets. As previously announced, Forest has scheduled the special meeting of shareholders for November 20, 2014, to consider and vote on the proposed combination with Sabine. Forest shareholders of record at the close of business on October 3, 2014, the record date, are entitled to vote at the Forest special meeting. A definitive proxy statement was sent to Forest shareholders on or around October 20, 2014. Closing of the transaction is also subject to other closing conditions. If approved, Forest anticipates the transaction to close in 2014.
