DALLAS, Oct. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LIG Assets, Inc. (OTCPK:LIGA) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, CP Resources, LLC, has executed an option to acquire lease interest and drilling interest in 400 acres in leases located in the Permian Basin.
Wells are planned for the lease and are intended to go down to a depth of approximately 8000 to 9000 feet and would be expected to encounter potential hydrocarbon bearing formations in the Cambrian, Canyon, and Strawn Formations. These zones have past initial production (IP) rates in the Permian basin of up to 200 BOPD to 800 BOPD, which could lead to very significant revenue and cash flow from the lease. 3-D and other technologies have been utilized to further define the potential of the lease.
CP Resources, LLC and West Coast Partners, LLC become wholly owned subsidiaries of LIG Assets, Inc. through a merger transaction announced on September 4, 2014. The primary focus of the merged entity will be to develop its current portfolio of leases for oil and gas reserves on over 36,000 acres in Nevada and Texas and additional leases as identified.
LIG Assets, Inc. recently announced an initial agreement with a potential funding partner under which the Company would receive up to $10 million in financing for drilling on its oil lease in Nevada. The Company expects to provide an update on the Nevada lease in the coming days.
