Pacific Arc to become oil, gas issuer, signs two LOIs

2023-11-24 15:13 ET - News Release

Mr. John MacPhail reports


Pacific Arc Resources Ltd. has entered into two letters of intent (LOIs) dated Nov. 13, 2023, which contemplate the company completing a change of business to an oil and gas issuer. One LOI with Greenflame Resources Inc. (GRI), whereby Pacific Arc will advance $2-million (U.S.) to acquire a direct 20-per-cent equity interest in the production sharing contract (PSC) held by GRI and New Horizons energy on the Parrylands Block E in Trinidad and Tobago. The PSC covers 744 acres within the Parrylands block; there have been 110 wells drilled previously on the block and it is connected to port via an existing pipeline. The PSC is subject to a 16-per-cent royalty, and the licence is held by production and is in good standing.

The second LOI is with Kinghorn Operations Inc. (KHO), whereby Pacific Arc will earn a 50-per-cent interest in an initial five-well pilot program to test the Nordegg formation in certain lands controlled by KHO (the farm-in) upon Pacific Arc paying 100 per cent of the actual costs of the pilot program. Pacific Arc will initially advance $750,000 to KHO prior to KHO commencing operations on the five-well pilot program. It is estimated that the cost of the pilot project will be approximately $750,000. Upon payment of the $750,000 to KHO and upon payment of 100 per cent of the farm-in costs for the five-well pilot program, Pacific Arc will earn a 50-per-cent ownership in the production spacing units in the land containing the five-well pilot program. Further, as part of the farm-in, the partners shall establish an area of mutual interest (AMI) covering the farm-in lands in the Clairmont area of Alberta. As such, Pacific Arc intends to complete the farm-in agreement with KHO and an updated PSC.

The transaction terms set out in the LOIs are non-binding, and the transaction is subject to the parties successfully negotiating and entering into definitive agreements in respect of the transaction.

Proposed private placement

Pacific Arc intends to complete a non-brokered equity financing or financings for aggregate gross proceeds of $5-million of units priced at a minimum price of 25 cents. Each unit shall comprise one full common share and one-half of a warrant, with each full warrant exercisable into a common share for 18 months from the closing of the financing at an exercise price of 40 cents per share. The use of proceeds will be to cover the above-mentioned transactions and provide general working capital as it seeks other opportunities within the sector.

Finder's fees may be payable in connection with the offering in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
