Resolute Energy Corporation Acquires Additional Texas Oil Production And Drilling Inventory

DENVER, Dec. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Resolute Energy Corporation ("Resolute" or the "Company") (NYSE: REN) announced today that it has entered into definitive agreements, and closed an initial transaction, to acquire a 32% working interest in oil assets, including existing production and undeveloped acreage, in the Permian Basin of Texas from private parties for a purchase price of approximately $125 million.  In addition, Resolute has acquired, for additional consideration of  approximately $5.7 million, the option to buy the balance of working interest in the field and operations from the sellers.

The initial transaction closed on December 28, 2012, and was financed with borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facility.  The transaction has an effective date of October 1, 2012, and is subject to customary conditions and post-closing purchase price adjustments.

The assets are located in Ector and Midland counties, Texas and cover approximately 4,660 gross (1,500 net) acres.  The properties in which Resolute acquired an interest include 67 producing wells, thirteen wells awaiting completion and facilities for gathering, water sourcing and water disposal.  The wells produced approximately 1,050 net barrels of oil equivalent ("Boe") per day in the third quarter of 2012 and had estimated proved reserves of 5.1 million Boe as of October 1, 2012, of which 59% is crude oil and 82% are liquids, and 53% is proved developed.  The acreage is largely held by production, and the Company estimates that a one to two rig program running for approximately 12 months would be sufficient to hold all of the acquired leases.  The acquired assets comprise approximately 32% of the sellers' interests in the properties.  The remainder of the working interests in the properties can be acquired at the Company's option for additional consideration of approximately $261 million, under substantially the same terms as the initial transaction, at any time between now and March 18, 2013.  The option fee of $5.7 million will be credited toward the purchase price if the option is exercised by Resolute.

Growth potential exists from approximately 45 vertical drilling locations targeting the Wolfberry interval and 69 uphole recompletion opportunities.  Additional upside exists from the multi-pay, multi-play nature of the area, which is prospective for horizontal development, particularly in the Wolfcamp.

Nicholas J. Sutton, Resolute's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said:  "A little over a week ago, we completed our successful acquisition of properties in Howard County, Texas, and Lea County, New Mexico.  As a result of a lot of hard work we were able to negotiate, document and close this acquisition prior to year-end, strengthening our production base, expanding our visible growth potential and securing an option to effectively double the effect of these recent two transactions with the acquisition of the remaining option interests.  As Resolute has pursued the most attractive domestic oil plays, we have made it a priority to focus on a limited number of core areas.  This addition further cements the Permian Basin as a star in our portfolio.  These properties, which are largely self-funded, will be developed over the next 4 to 5 years and will add to our production and reserves for many years to come.  We are excited to further expand our presence in this multi-pay, multi-play oil-prone region."

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
