Key Quote

Colin Harrington, Zephyr’s Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted that we have now completed the Acquisition which is expected to bring multiple commercial benefits to the Company. “Firstly, it allows us to greatly reduce the capital needed to build out the gas infrastructure required to sell our produced gas volumes from the Paradox project into the market. Secondly, it completes the acquisition of all key acreage covered by the WSU 3D and thirdly, it provides us with an additional well pad already tied to the pipeline, which in combination with the newly acquired acreage will simplify future development drilling. Similarly, the gas plant, while currently not in use, has excellent potential for reintroduction to service and can potentially act as a WSU supply base.
