CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – May 25, 2017) – Tanager Energy Inc. (“Tanager” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:TAN)(OTC PINK:MNIRF) announced today that its joint venture partner, Paleo Oil Company, LLC (“Paleo“) has entered into a master gas purchase agreement with Houston Pipe Line Company LP (“HPL“) regarding the Raptor A #1 well and Raptor B #1 well, in Polk County, Texas. Tanager owns a fifty percent (50%) working interest in the Raptor A #1 well and seventy five percent (75%) working interest(1) in the Raptor B #1 well. Pursuant to the agreement, Paleo will sell all of the gas produced from these wells to HPL. For purchases pursuant to the master agreement, the parties will enter into a separate purchase and sale agreement confirming, among other matters, the monthly delivered volumes and price. The term of the master agreement is for a period of one year and shall then continue on a month-to-month basis thereafter, until terminated by either party upon 30 days’ written notice.
HPL is one of the largest owners and operators of pipelines in the US and owns thousands of miles of pipelines in Polk and Tyler County, Texas in the Paleo-Tanager JV area. As a result of this agreement, and having previously secured all necessary pipeline right of way agreements, construction of the Raptor gas pipeline will be expedited.
