LEGEND OIL AND GAS LTD. Kansas Increases in Value
SEATTLE, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. (OTC Markets: LOGL) (“Legend”, the “Company”) has received the year-end values for its oil and gas production and reserves from its third party Engineering firms; both of whom were contracted to provide the Company with industry standard evaluations of its production assets. InSite Petroleum Consultants Ltd. (“InSite”) of Calgary, Alberta, in compliance with Canadian National Instrument 51-101 regarding engineering evaluations of resource properties, has completed the evaluation of the Canadian asset base. KLH Consulting of Wichita Kansas (“KLH”), who has provided Legend with its resource evaluation in the United States since the Company’s first production in the state of Kansas, completed the evaluation for the U.S. assets.
Marshall Diamond-Goldberg, President of Legend Oil and Gas stated, “We have done a thorough job of evaluating our reserves and have shown that we are increasing value in those areas where we are able to deploy capital to drill new wells and improve the production facilities. The asset value in Canada is reduced somewhat from the 2011 year-end evaluation. Natural reserve and production declines, coupled with a very low capital expenditure level in Canada, were the leading causes for these declines. The Canadian assets continue to show significant corporate value and contribute significantly to the Company’s production and cash flow. In Kansas, we were able to increase production and reserves through the drilling of additional development locations increasing the reserves and corresponding values increased significantly.”
The asset evaluation process has demonstrated the value addition which has been derived from the drilling performed in Kansas during 2012. Proven Developed Producing reserve values have increased 40.1% with Proven Un-Developed values rising 15.4% or an overall Total Proven value increase of 22.9%. It is Legend’s intent to focus on its Kansas asset base in 2013 with a capital program in Canada earmarked for operating cost reduction and participation in the major production and water flood expansion of the Wildmere unit, currently underway by the operator Husky Energy.
