"Proceeds Provided Complete Acquisition of 2400 Acres and Drill Two Wells"
RENO, NV, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - FormCap Corp. ("FormCap" or "the Company") (OTCQB: FRMC) announced today that it has settled $672,000 in debt and trade payables, removing these obligations from its balance sheet, in exchange for the issuance of shares of its common stock to Ironridge Global IV, Ltd. ("Ironridge"), an institutional investor specializing in direct equity investments in oil and gas development companies. Ironridge previously purchased certain debts of the Company held by third party creditors, which make up the amount settled.
Graham Douglas, CEO of FormCap reports that "FormCap is excited about closing this financing with Ironridge and is excited to proceed on the final acquisition of the 2400 acres of prospective oil and gas leases in Cowley County, Kansas". The Company, its partners Kerr and Keta, technical advisors and operator will immediately map out decisions on drill site locations with an anticipated first drill during Q2-2014. "There are tremendous oil and gas opportunities to produce commercial light oil and gas in an environment of high crude oil prices and low finding and developing costs."
FormCap has paid Kerr and Keta one hundred and seventy-five thousand dollars ($175,000) to February 26, 2014 to be applied towards the purchase of 875 acres with the balance of $305,000 to be paid directly by Ironridge to Kerr and Keta as per debt settlement agreement dated February 21, 2014. Upon closing FormCap will have acquired a total of 2400 acres of prospective oil and gas leases for a total cost of four hundred and eighty thousand dollars ($480,000) from Kerr and Keta and will own 100% of the Leases (80% net revenue to FormCap; 20% freehold royalty), and will be operator. FormCap will have the option to purchase additional leases in Cowley County from Kerr and Keta under an Area of Mutual Interest ("AMI"), the terms of which are set forth in the Agreement. FormCap is required to drill one (1) well in each of the first two (2) years of the Lease term to maintain its interest in the Leases.
Significant quantities of oil and gas have been discovered and produced in Cowley County in recent years. The prospects for oil production are excellent with multi-zone potential for both vertical and horizontal development. In addition to the Mississippian, zones producing in this area include the Layton, Lansing-Kansas City, Bartlesville, Stalnaker and the Arbuckle. Reservoir properties are excellent with good porosity and permeability in thicker accumulations of hydrocarbons. Total depths of approximately 4,000 feet provide drilling time of approximately seven (7) days with completed wells costing about $500,000 per vertical well.
FormCap is actively engaged in identifying, financing and developing oil and gas energy resource properties in North America, including the development of the Cowley County, Kansas, Mississippi Prospect in Kansas. FormCap continues to review additional resource properties that combine positive elements of short-term exploration and development costs with high potential for long-term success and financial return.
