Samson Oil & Gas provides year end reserves

Thursday, February 21, 2013
  • Samson has received its 1 January 2013 estimated reserves evaluation report from Ryder Scott Company.
  • The Ryder Scott reserves evaluation used the NYMEX forward curve as of 1 January 2013 less an appropriate differential to take into account the difference between the NYMEX pricing and the price received by the Company at its various sales points.

Samson Oil & Gas Limited (ASX: SSN, NYSE MKT: SSN) provides advice on its year end reserves evaluation by Ryder Scott Company, L.P.

Samson has received its 1 January 2013 estimated reserves evaluation report from Ryder Scott Company. This reserves report takes into account the North Stockyard oil field acreage swap referenced in our announcement on 30 December 2012. The reserves report does not take into account the impact of the increased spacing density allowed following the receipt of the Spacing Order from the North Dakota Industrial Commission as this was received after 1 January 2013.

We expect this spacing order to allow a portion of the Probable Reserve to be included in the Proved Undeveloped Category.

As of 1 January 2013, the Ryder Scott Company estimates the following reserves attributable to Samson as:

Oil
MBBLS
GAS
MMCF
MBOE
NPV
US$'000's*
Proved Developed Producing 485 1,128 673 16,687
Proved Undeveloped
334 374 397 3,760
Probable 2,007 2,339 2,396 21,896


*NPV10 – this is the Net Present Value of the future cash flows, discounted at 10%.

Proved and probable reserves attributable to producing wells or reservoirs were estimated by performance methods. Proved and probable undeveloped reserves were estimated by analogy.
