"We are thrilled to have closed on this bolt-on acquisition out of bankruptcy. Through existing relationships in the field, combined with an operating presence, we have demonstrated a highly competitive advantage in securing offsetting acreage at a discount relative to surrounding basin activity," said Avi Mirman, CEO of Lilis Energy. "Essentially, we acquired a well at a discount to its PV-10 PDP value, and as a bonus, secured 500 net acres in the Delaware Basin that are held by production. We will continue to utilize our strong cash position in a prudent manner, through a mix of further leasehold acquisition and drilling activity."
The Company today also provided an update on the drilling of its first Wolfcamp lateral, the Bison #1H. The successful kick-out from the vertical casing went as engineered. The horizontal portion is currently being drilled and is a planned 6,000 foot lateral. Upon reaching total depth, the rig will move to drill the next Wolfcamp location, the Grizzly #1H.
The Company plans to announce its expected capital budget and drilling program in the upcoming weeks.
