Rok Resources' 2020 NI 51-101 reserves at 1.4 MMboe P+P

2021-02-25 00:19 ET - News Release

Mr. Cam Taylor reports


Rok Resources Inc. has released the results of its Dec. 31, 2020, independent reserves evaluation. The evaluation for the company as at Dec. 31, 2020, was conducted by GLJ Ltd. of Calgary, and was conducted in accordance with the definitions, standards and procedures contained in the Canadian oil and gas evaluator handbook (COGEH) and National Instrument 51-101 (Standards for Disclosure of Oil and Gas Activities). Please note that bopd refers to barrels of oil per day. Reserves volumes reported are total company interest reserves, a classification of reserves used in the evaluation, which represents production and reserves before deduction of royalties.

Commenting on the year-end 2020 reserve report, chairman and chief executive officer Cam Taylor stated: "We are very pleased with the year-end 2020 independent reserves evaluation for the Glen Ewen property. Rok's technical team's expertise in identifying potential upside, combined with the reactivation and recompletion of certain wells, contributed to the reserve bookings. As provided by GLJ at Dec. 31, 2020, proved plus probable reserve bookings totalled 1,409,000 [barrels of oil equivalent], comprised of light and medium crude oil, conventional natural gas, and natural gas liquids as shown in the summary of reserves tables. The associated proved plus probable [net present value] before tax (discounted at 10 per cent) was $12,512,000. Oil pricing has continued to strengthen since the Dec. 31, 2020, independent reserves evaluation date, setting the stage for further operational activity through 2021. Given the improvement in oil pricing, the company will continue to focus on increasing shareholder value through operations in the Glen Ewen area and considering further strategic acquisitions."

In this press release, all references to reserves are to gross company reserves, meaning the company's working interest reserves before deductions of royalties and before consideration of the company's royalty interests. The attached tables are a summary of the company's petroleum and natural gas reserves, as evaluated by GLJ, effective Dec. 31, 2020, using GLJ's year-end forecast prices and costs. It should not be assumed that the estimates of future net revenues presented in the attached tables represent the fair market value of the reserves. There is no assurance that the forecast prices and cost assumptions will be attained, and variances could be material. The recovery and reserve estimates of the company's crude oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas reserves provided herein are estimates only, and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered. It is important to note that the recovery and reserves estimates provided herein are estimates only. Actual reserves may be greater or less than the estimates provided herein. Reserves information may not add due to rounding.

  • Crude oil and natural gas reserves and present values at Dec. 31, 2020, as provided by GLJ:
