International Western Petroleum Completes East Texas Acquisition in Kilgore City
IRVING, Texas, September 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — International Western Petroleum, Inc. (OTCQB: INWP), a Texas-based E&P company specializing in the acquisition, development, and exploration of crude oil and natural gas properties, announced today that it has completed an acquisition of a producing oil field in Kilgore, Texas via the Marshall Walden Joint Venture, a partnership with Odyssey Enterprises, LLC.
International Western Petroleum is the managing venturer in this joint venture with Odyssey which has financed the joint venture for the lease purchase and optimization of wells located in Kilgore, Texas, in the heart of the famous Woodbine formation. There are 8 wellbores in the acquisition, with 4 currently in production and 4 inactive. Over the next 90 days, our operation team will re-work all 8 wellbores to enhance oil production levels.
The Woodbine Sand formation exists 120 miles east of downtown Dallas in the heart of East Texas. In that area, the Woodbine Sand is typically found at a depth of approximately 6,000 feet. Further, in East Texas, the Woodbine Sand is frequently oil bearing. The most famous oil field which depended upon the Woodbine Sand as its primary reservoir was the fabled East Texas oil field. Prior to the discovery of oil in the Middle East, it was the largest oil field in the world with estimated initial recoverable oil reserves of 5.5 billion barrels.
“This is an acquisition that now puts a solid foundation in place for International Western Petroleum in the East Texas region. This area has wellbores that have been producing since the late 1920’s. I am honored to have Odyssey teamed up with us for acquisition opportunities with such a deep route of Texas oil history,” commented INWP CEO Ross Ramsey.
“This first partnership with International Western Petroleum shall open some exciting new doors for both parties in the East Texas region where Odyssey will serve as financial consultant and negotiator while continuing our long term partnership with them for additional acquisitions in Texas in the near future,” stated Odyssey president Joseph Rogers.
