Permex Increases Reserves by 240%!

Permex Petroleum Corporation Completes Transformational Acquisition of the Breedlove "B" Field in Martin County, Texas

Transaction Expected to Increase Permex’s Reserves by 240% through the Primary Formation; Additional Reserves Expected upon Further Evaluation of Formations Included on the Leases

Vancouver, British Columbia, October 27, 2021 – Permex Petroleum Corporation ("Permex" or the "Company") (CSE: OIL) (OTCQB: OILCF), a leading junior oil and gas company, has completed the previously announced Purchase and Sale Agreement (“PSA”) with Pratt Oil Company, LLC, Rockport Permian, LLC and Petro America Resources, LLC (the “Seller”), and now holds 100% working interest in the Mabee Breedlove Clearfork Unit, Mallard Breedlove lease, Carter Clearfork lease and Erwin Eoff lease (the “Assets”) located in Martin County, Texas.

The Acquisition enhances Permex’s financial and operational strength through the addition of a high-quality and very low decline (5%) light oil asset base that is projected to generate robust free cash flow as additional workover and drilling programs are implemented by the Company. Further, the Acquisition is aligned with the Company’s strategy to acquire and develop undervalued, low-risk opportunities that support the building of a strong portfolio with strategic development upside. The Martin County Assets currently produce primarily from the ClearFork formation, however other formations are available under the leases for further development to increase field production. 

Strategic Acquisition Highlights

  • Attractive purchase price based only on the Proved Developed Producing (“PDP”) reserve.
  • Increases Permex’s total oil and gas acreage holdings in Texas and New Mexico to 11,700 acres, an increase of approximately 290% since August 2021.
  • Reserve growth is expected to be in excess of 240% through the primary formation Clearfork alone. Additional reserves will be booked upon further independent evaluation of the San Andres and Spraberry zones on the leases. Management expects to realize development of the locations starting in Q1 2022.
  • Over 28 Proved Undeveloped (“PUD”) drilling locations and over 19 Probable (“PROB”) drilling locations identified to support long-term development. These additional locations could potentially add $159 million of PV-10 value, at a realized price of $65 per BOE.
  • Exposure to multi-zone asset base concentrated in the Clearfork, San Andres and Spraberry formations with a large, identified low-risk drilling inventory of highly economic light oil plays, significant workover opportunities, and competitive forecast returns.
  • The potential to generate significant annual free cash flow through the optimization, recompletion and Enhanced Oil Recovery (“EOR”) of current producing wellbores through Waterfloods.

 “We are very pleased to complete this highly anticipated acquisition, which nearly triples our footprint of oil and gas holdings,” said Mehran Ehsan, CEO of Permex Petroleum. “This property not only provides additional drilling, re-entry and EOR opportunities, but also brings sufficient production to support future revenue and cash flow to strengthen our balance sheet. We believe the transaction metrics will be accretive in the near-term, elevating our market position and ultimately driving sustainable value for our shareholders.”
