SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Worthington Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: WGAS) ("Worthington" or the "Company"), an energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and drilling of oil and natural gas properties, takes this opportunity to further expound on the recent acquisition of the oil and gas assets and heavy and medium gravity oil technology and intellectual property from American Dynamic Resources, Inc. ("ADR") and ADR's President and CEO, Mr. Charles Adams.
Worthington Energy, Inc. Chairman and CEO, Charles F. Volk, stated, "There is tremendous unrecognized value that is not reflected in our current share price in the stock market. Our reserve report shows over 500,000 barrels of oil on the Barr Lease alone. Current sales for proven reserves, as per the Oil & Gas Journal, average $10 per barrel, which values these reserves at $5,000,000."
Mr. Volk continued, "The Barr lease has been ADR's EOR (enhanced oil recovery) technology testing and proving ground. The lease has facilities on site and 35 barrels in the tank. The property has infrastructure that is 80 percent complete, and has produced 14,779 barrels of oil to date. In 2013 ADR produced 193 barrels of oil testing their EOR technologies."
"Worthington was extremely fortunate to be able to acquire the assets of ADR after prior investment groups, which had been working with Mr. Adams to develop his EOR technology, funded what ultimately resulted in the proven, proprietary, patent pending technology Worthington now owns," explained Mr. Volk. "Worthington now has the properties and the technological ability to grow significantly with relatively low economic and geological risk."
Worthington acquired multiple leases totaling 3,527 acres in Southeast Kansas, which combined, contain 140 oil wells and 17 gas wells, including documented reserves of 1,163,618 barrels of oil and 9.8 billion cubic feet of gas. Worthington also acquired ADR's pending patents on Intellectual Properties for Enhanced Oil Recovery, including Air Lift, Thermal Enhancement and Reservoir Management. These technologies were developed specifically for the heavy and medium gravity oil deposits contained in the Southeast Kansas leases acquired.
"We have an aggressive growth strategy planned and we believe that any investors that are here with us now will benefit from Worthington's development plans and increasing valuations in the market," stated Worthington Energy President and COO, Mr. Charlie Adams.
Worthington engages in the acquisition, exploration, development and drilling of oil and natural gas properties. Worthington is an energy turnaround company whose strategy is to acquire cash flow producing properties with proved and probable reserves, and develop the fields by reworking existing wells and drilling new wells. Worthington was founded in 2004 and is based in San Francisco, CA.
