Highlights

Settlement and Assignment Agreement with YPF

In February 2019, the Company completed the Settlement and Assignment Agreement with YPF SA, the operator of the Llancanelo Asset, wherein both parties have agreed upon terms of assignment of the Company’s 39% participating interest in the Llancanelo Asset to YPF. In return, YPF has released the Company from all existing and future financial obligations related to Llancanelo Asset operations.  This has resulted in the elimination of approximately $12.4 million of exploration and evaluation assets, $1.0 million of property, plant and equipment assets, $1.0 million of joint venture payables, $8.4 million in liabilities for cash calls assumed on acquisitions, $2.5 million in liabilities for considerations payable on acquisitions, and $1.6 million in decommissioning liabilities.

Mariposa

The Company holds a net working interest in the Estancia La Mariposa block of 18%, entitling it to 18% of the oil, natural gas and condensate sales, while the operator carries 100% of the capital expenditures and field operating costs. The net revenue figures associated with the Mariposa Asset are presented net of any applicable royalties and certain operating costs of transportation, treatment and processing. Oil and natural gas production is sold on behalf of the Company, for which the Company receives proceeds from the operator, net of the aforementioned royalties and operating costs. The net revenue generated from this asset has not been included in any “per barrel” pricing herein.

Forward-Looking Information

Except for the statements of historical fact, this news release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of the applicable Canadian securities legislation that is based on expectations, estimates and projections as at the date of this news release.  The information in this news release about the completion of the operations described herein, and other forward-looking information includes but is not limited to information concerning the intentions, plans and future actions of the parties to the transactions described herein and the terms of such transaction.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in such forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, risks related to the Company’s inability to perform the proposed operations.

The forward-looking information in this news release reflects the current expectations, assumptions and/or beliefs of the Company based on information currently available to the Company. In connection with the forward-looking information contained in this news release, the Company has made assumptions about the Company’s ability to complete the planned operations and activities. The Company has also assumed that no significant events will occur outside of the Company’s normal course of business. Although the Company believes that the assumptions inherent in the forward-looking information are reasonable, forward-looking information is not a guarantee of future performance and accordingly undue reliance should not be put on such information due to the inherent uncertainty therein.

Any forward-looking information speaks only as of the date on which it is made and, except as may be required by applicable securities laws, the Company disclaims any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise.

BOE Conversion Advisory

The term “boe” is used in this news release. Boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil (6 Mcf : 1 bbl) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.  In this news release, we have expressed boe using this standard conversion ratio of 6 Mcf : 1 bbl.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
