CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quattro Exploration and Production Ltd. (TSX-V:QXP) (“Quattro” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced asset purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) with an Alberta-based private company acquiring the Company’s well database.
The acquisition was funded with the issuance of 2,000 Class C Preferred Shares (“Preferred Shares”) priced @ $100 per share, paying an annual preferred dividend of $8.00 per share. The holder will have the right between the 3rd and 5th year of issuance to convert the Preferred Shares into Class A common shares at a ratio of 100 Class A shares for each Preferred Share converted, valuing the Class A common shares at a deemed price $1.00 per share.
Quattro will acquire a data base of 2,000 well logs, including all pore pressure analysis, the associated computer algorithms and equipment dedicated to the analysis of the pore pressures and associated fracturing of certain geological oil and gas prospects within the foothills of Canada. The information was accumulated over the past 38 years and is extensive, ranging from the US border to the Yukon Territory. The data has been a key component in the design of safe and efficient drilling programs, with the further benefit of assisting in the identification of pore pressures and natural fracturing – one of the fundamental aspects of successful well design and fracking programs.
400 of the wells logs within the database have penetrated the deep basin, including the Montney and Duvernay formations, resulting in an extensive analysis of regional geological trends, measured pore pressures and associated analytical information used to determine behavior and well performance.
