FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MD America Energy, LLC ("MDAE") has entered into a Purchase Sale Agreement with an Undisclosed Seller to acquire its operated properties in East Texas, which primarily target the Woodbine formation. Closing is expected late February 2016. MDAE CEO, Eric Waller, stated, "This acquisition readily integrates into our existing core properties, expands the impact of our regional capability, increases our presence in Madison County and creates drillable inventory for the future. The acquisition also provides additional midstream and other assets that we ascribe value to and is in support of our plans to grow the business during this period of generational opportunity." MDAE will fund the acquisition with cash provided by its parent, Meidu Energy Corporation.
