Alpine Summit Energy Partners Announces Repayment of First Development Partnership and Closing of Third Development Partnership
Nashville, Tennessee and Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 7, 2021) - Alpine Summit Energy Partners, Inc. (TSXV: ALPS.U) ("Alpine Summit" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the successful repayment and reversion of the first development partnership ("DP1") that it formed during the first quarter of 2021, along with the concurrent closing of its third development partnership ("DP3").
DP1 funded the drilling and completion of five wells in the Giddings Field near Austin, TX and comprised a total capital program of US$21.3 million, with 60% funded by external partners. As part of the completion of the DP1 program, Alpine has retired liabilities of approximately US$15 million.
DP3 has an expanded capital program of approximately US$34.7 million, with approximately US$21 million of external development capital, and is expected to drill two natural gas wells in Webb County and three oil and natural gas wells near the Giddings Field.
Alpine Summit's Chief Executive Officer, Craig Perry, commented: "The DP1 results demonstrate the effectiveness of Alpine Summit's capital velocity strategy. The DP1 partners' capital was deployed directly to the wellhead, with five wells drilled and completed in a six-month timeframe. We look forward to continuing to execute on our business plan and expanding our development activity into South Texas with DP3."
One of the DP1 partners exercised the put right provided to such partners by DP1 regarding residual interests in their associated investment and, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, elected to sell the remaining interest in DP1 for 339,372 Class B non-voting units of HB2 Origination, LLC (which are exchangeable on a one-for-one basis for Subordinate Voting Shares of the Company, having a deemed value of US$3.515 per unit, or a total of approximately US$1.2 million).
