"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with WPX Energy in the Piceance Basin. WPX has a proven track record for predictable and cost efficient natural gas production in the region and will be an excellent partner for G2X. We look forward to many years of successful development together," stated Mr. Tim Vail, President and CEO of G2X Energy, who went on to say, "We see this transaction as a creative way to secure reliable, low cost natural gas feedstock for our methanol and gasoline plants under construction and in development."
WPX, who will remain as operator, is receiving approximately $40MM in cash for 49 percent of its working interest in approximately 100 proved developed producing Trail Ridge wells. These wells represent approximately 26 billion cubic feet equivalent of proved developed producing reserves. The drilling program has 1,300 remaining drilling locations. The parties plan to jointly develop 8 wells this year; 25 wells in 2015; 50 wells in 2016 and 100 wells per year in 2017 and beyond.

In connection with the drilling program, G2X has also committed to a $170 million drilling carry on nearly 400 future wells. WPX will pay 28 percent of the Trail Ridge development and receive 51 percent of the production and reserves until G2X has completed its drilling carry funding commitment.
