AUSTIN, Texas, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (AMEX: FPP) today announced the details of a hedging agreement that it has in place for the second half of 2012.
Ray Reaves, President and CEO for FieldPoint, said, "As we have previously stated, the Company is protecting itself during this period of fluctuating energy pricing by the use of costless collar hedging. The hedging agreement currently in place has a floor of $95 and a ceiling of $106.50. We have been able to secure a costless collar that will be effective from July 1 through December 31 of this year, having a floor of $95 and a ceiling of $110.30. As with our current agreement, we are hedging 200 barrels per day, believing that this gives us sufficient protection against dramatic price reductions while still allowing a windfall should prices increase significantly."
Mr. Reaves concluded with, "Hedging provides insurance against lost revenue, and the costless collar provides a unique form of insurance that doesn't require an up-front premium payment. We collect if oil prices fall below the floor, but we only pay if they go above the ceiling. I believe that the program we have selected best fits our needs at this time."
