On March 23, 2018, pursuant to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (“BIA”), Sequoia Resources Corporation (“Sequoia” or the “Company”), filed an assignment in Bankruptcy and PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. LIT (“PwC”) was appointed as Licensed Insolvency Trustee (the “Trustee”).
Sayer Energy Advisors has been engaged to assist the Trustee with the sales process of certain of Sequoia`s oil and natural gas properties. The properties are located in the Sullivan Lake, Ferrybank, Crystal, Newton and Giroux Lake areas of Alberta (the “Properties”).
The Company operates most of the Properties, generally holding a high working interest, and it has ownership of infrastructure.
As per an order from the Alberta Energy Regulator (“AER”), Sequoia’s licensed Properties have been shut-in since March 2018. As a result, all production numbers stated herein reflect the production capability of the various wells or properties prior to the shut-in. The production capability net to Sequoia from the Properties at that time averaged 767 boe/d, consisting of 293 barrels of oil and natural gas liquids per day and 2.84 MMcf/d of natural gas sales.
The Company does not have an independent evaluation of the Properties’ reserves. GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd. (“GLJ”) prepared an independent reserves evaluation of the Properties for the previous owner, Waldron Energy Corporation (“Waldron”) (the “GLJ Report”). The GLJ Report is effective December 31, 2014 using GLJ’s December 31, 2014 forecast pricing.
GLJ estimated that as of December 31, 2014, the Properties contained remaining proved plus probable reserves of approximately 2.4 million barrels of oil and natural gas liquids and 18.6 Bcf of natural gas (5.5 million boe), with an estimated net present value of approximately $29.1 million using forecast pricing at a 10% discount.
Summary information relating to this divestiture is attached to this correspondence. More specific information is available at www.sayeradvisors.com. A package of more detailed confidential information will be sent to any party executing a Confidentiality Agreement (copy attached).
Cash offers to acquire the Properties will be accepted until 12:00 pm on Thursday, October 4, 2018.
