CALGARY , Dec. 31, 2014 /CNW/ - Oando Energy Resources Inc. ("OER" or the "Company") (TSX: OER) , a company focused on oil and gas exploration and production in Nigeria , is pleased to announce that it has received the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (" TSX ") for the listing of 344,673,441 previously issued warrants (the " Warrants ") to acquire 344,673,441 common shares of OER at a price of US$1.80 per common share until July 30, 2016 , subject to acceleration and usual adjustments. The listing of the Warrants is expected to enhance market liquidity of the Company's currently listed common shares and reduce the holdings of the Company's controlling shareholder, Oando Plc, to the extent that Warrants are exercised by holders other than Oando Plc.

The Warrants were transferred pursuant to section 2.24 of National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus and Registration Exemptions .

As a result of the transfer of Warrants described above, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Oando Plc now holds 325,382,569 Warrants. Pursuant to an undertaking to be given to the TSX in connection with listing the Warrants, Oando Plc and its subsidiaries are restricted from exercising any Warrants to the extent that such conversion would result in Oando Plc's direct and indirect ownership of common shares of OER exceeding 94.6%. The terms of the Warrants are set out in a warrant indenture dated December 31, 2014 , which will be filed under OER's profile at www.sedar.com .

GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS--(Marketwired - Dec. 31, 2014) - Tethys Petroleum Limited (TSX:TPL) (LSE:TPL) ("Tethys" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that TethysAralGas LLP, its 100% owned Kazakhstan subsidiary, has signed a gas sales contract for 2015 gas production.

  • New gas contract signed
  • 42% increase over current price of US$53/MCM to US$75/MCM
  • 100 million cubic metres under contract
  • Option to sell additional 110 million cubic metres at potentially higher prices

A one-year gas supply contract has been signed at a price of US$75/mcm (US$2.12 per 1,000 cubic feet) net of marketing and distribution costs effective January 1, 2015 representing a 42% increase over the current realised gas price. This price has been realised despite falling oil and gas prices in Central Asia due to the impact of the fall in worldwide prices (Henry Hub spot price has fallen 30% to $108/mcm since December 1 st , 2014). The achievement of the higher gas prices reflects the Company's view that despite these recent influences, the general direction of gas prices is on an upward trend due to the increasing demand from China as it moves from a coal based economy to utilising more gas. The Company believes that once gas shipments commence to China through the already built gas pipeline, it may achieve further increases in pricing some time in 2015.

The gas supply contract has been signed between TethysAralGas LLP and KazTransGas JSC "KTG"), for the Kyzyloi and Akkulka natural gas fields. KTG is the national State appointed gas operator under Kazakhstan gas law and any domestic sales of gas are effectively made through this state body. TAG will have the ability to export gas to China and other export markets once this option becomes available.

The gas supply contract is for annual volumes up to 100 million cubic meters at the increased net price of US$75 per 1,000 cubic metres (US$2.12 per 1,000 cubic feet) net of marketing and distribution costs, and runs through to December 31, 2015. KTG has agreed that it will take any additional gas produced up to a total annual volume of 210 million cubic metres, but the structure of the contract also allows TAG to sell this additional gas outside of the contract should higher prices be achieved at a later date. This additional flexibility provides a significant advantage over the current contract under which all gas was committed for the whole year.

It should be noted that the prices have been agreed in Kazakh Tenge as all sales contracts in Kazakhstan are signed with the prices set in National Currency. Due to concerns of a possible devaluation in the Tenge in 2015 it was agreed that in the case of a devaluation by more than 10%, the Parties shall agree to meet within 10 working days and try to renegotiate the price of gas. This is the first time the Company has managed to include this type of clause which is a significant improvement on the current gas contract whereby there was no potential resolution when the Tenge devalued in 2014 resulting in a lower realized USD price for the Company at that time.

John Bell, Executive Chairman, commented, "I am pleased we have delivered on one of our major initiatives announced in early December; to sign a new gas sales contract by month end at a materially higher price than the current contract. This has been achieved despite a dramatic worldwide fall in oil and gas prices, including in the areas we operate in. As well as the higher price we have also introduced other protections and improvements on the contract that are very significant. We previously announced in early December that it was our plan to double the current gas production by Q1 2015, and I look forward to updating shareholders on progress on this in the very near future."

Tethys is focused on oil and gas exploration and production activities in Central Asia and the Caspian Region. This highly prolific oil and gas area is rapidly developing and Tethys believes that significant potential exists in both exploration and in discovered deposits.

This press release contains "forward-looking information". Such forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future events, our expectation with respect to increases in gas production, achieving higher gas prices and the significant potential of exploration and discovered deposits. The forward-looking statements are based on the following assumptions, that the Company will be successful in increasing gas production and/or the price at which it sells its gas. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the risk that that the Company will not be successful in increasing its gas production to the extent anticipated or achieving any further increases in the prices at which it sells it gas. See our Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2013 for a description of risks and uncertainties relevant to our business, including our exploration activities. The "forward looking statements" contained herein speak only as of the date of this press release and, unless required by applicable law, the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise such information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

CAMARILLO, CA , Dec. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - BNK Petroleum Inc. (the " Company " or " BNK ") (TSX: BKX) is providing an update on its Tishomingo Field, Caney shale oil operations in Oklahoma as well as its Polish shale gas project.

Tishomingo Field, Oklahoma

The Company has fracture stimulated 30 percent of the Emery 17-1H well (98.7% interest). The Company has decided to flowback the well at this time and fracture stimulate the rest of the lateral at a later date.  The well began flowback today.

The Company has just finished drilling the Nickel Hill 36-3H well (99.4% interest) and has cemented the casing in place.  The Company employed revised drilling practices on the Nickel Hill 36-3H that were successful in avoiding some issues encountered in the Emery 17-1H well.  The Emery 17-1H issues impacted drilling time and cost and necessitates remedial work prior to fracture stimulation of the rest of the lateral.  The Company expects to utilize these new drilling practices in future Caney wells and believes they will enable significant future savings.  After drilling the Nickel Hill 36-3H well the Company's net acreage in the Tishomingo Field has increased to about 16,200 acres.

The Company's existing Caney production is declining at a slower rate than forecast in the reserves report for the year ended December 31, 2013 and in management's opinion is performing very well.  However, given the oil price drop over the last few months, the Company is taking a conservative approach to capital expenditures.  Accordingly, the Company has released the drilling rig and will postpone the completion of the Nickel Hill 36-3H well and the fracture stimulation of the rest of the Emery 17-1H well. The Company is also evaluating cost saving measures.

Gapowo B-1H Well, Poland

The previously announced reservoir model analysis for the Gapowo B-1H shale gas well in Poland has been completed.  The model was prepared for the Company by a third party consulting firm that is a world leader in this field.

The model simulated flow rates and recoveries that would be achieved if another well is drilled near the Gapowo B-1H well, in various sub intervals of the Ordovician shale, and is successfully fracture stimulated along a full-length lateral with the modeled fracture design.  It also assumes that the learnings from the Gapowo B-1H well and the modeling are incorporated in the new well design. As announced on June 5 and July 30, 2014 , the fracture stimulation of the Gapowo B-1H well encountered challenges resulting in placement of proppant that was sub-optimal and did not achieve designed volumes. Flow back rates, data from pressure gauges and data analysis indicate that only 8 of the 20 stages were contributing to the flow.

The forecasted flow rates and estimated recoveries predicted by the numerical model for a full stimulated length lateral, in addition to the overpressure that was confirmed by the data collected from the Gapowo B-1H well, are encouraging and the Company believes further wells are warranted.

The detailed study report prepared by the third party consulting firm will be included in the information made available to potential joint venture partners.  The Company has begun the process of providing potential partners with access to project data.  The Company believes that the encouraging modeling results, strong natural gas prices in Europe , and the Company's large Polish acreage position will be attractive to joint venture partners with the capacity to advance this project.

Forward-looking information is based on plans and estimates of management and interpretations of exploration information by the Company's exploration team at the date the information is provided and is subject to several factors and assumptions of management, including that indications of early results are reasonably accurate predictors of the prospectiveness of the shale intervals, that anticipated results and estimated costs will be consistent with managements' expectations, that new drilling and stimulation techniques will be successful, that the Company's geological analyses are accurate, that required regulatory approvals will be available when required, that no unforeseen delays, unexpected geological or other effects, equipment failures, permitting delays or labor or contract disputes or shortages are encountered, that the development plans of the Company and its co-venturers will not change, that the demand for oil and gas will be sustained, that the Company will continue to be able to access sufficient capital through financings, farm-ins or other participation arrangements to maintain its projects and carry out its plans and that global economic conditions will not deteriorate in a manner that has an adverse impact on the Company's business, its ability to advance its business strategy and the industry as a whole.

Forward-looking information is subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause plans, estimates and actual results to vary materially from those projected in such forward-looking information.  Factors that could cause the forward-looking information in this news release to change or to be inaccurate include, but are not limited to, the risk that any of the assumptions on which such forward looking information is based vary or prove to be invalid, including that anticipated results and estimated costs will not be consistent with managements' expectations, new drilling and completion techniques proving to be unsuccessful, the Company's geological analyses proving to be inaccurate, the Company or its subsidiaries is not able for any reason to obtain and provide the information necessary to secure required approvals or that required regulatory approvals are otherwise not available when required, that unexpected geological results are encountered, that equipment failures, permitting delays or labor or contract disputes or shortages are encountered, that completion techniques require further optimization, that production rates do not match the Company's assumptions, that very low or no production rates are achieved, that the Company is unable to access required capital, that occurrences such as those that are assumed will not occur, do in fact occur, and those conditions that are assumed will continue or improve, do not continue or improve, and the other risks and uncertainties applicable to exploration and development activities and the Company's business as set forth in the Company's management discussion and analysis and its annual information form, both of which are available for viewing under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com , any of which could result in delays, cessation in planned work or loss of one or more concessions and have an adverse effect on the Company and its financial condition. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, other than as required by applicable law.

BOEs/boes (barrels of oil equivalent) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.  A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

The Company's disclosure contains peak and initial production rates and other short-term production rates.  Readers are cautioned that initial production rates are preliminary in nature and are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or of ultimate recovery.
