Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/3/2014, Location: Asia

Brightoil Petroleum Limited is planning to submit a formal bid to acquire all the issued shares of Newfield Global Inc.(“Newfield”), which holds a 12% interest in Bohai Bay Block 05/36 (“Bohai Bay Block”) and a 49% interest in Pearl River Block 16/05 (“Pearl River Block”). The Group already owns a 29% interest of the oil-producing Bohai Bay Block. According to Newfield, the Pearl River Block is under development. It is expected to commence production by the end of November 2014, and it will be operated by a subsidiary of Newfield.

A bid evaluation process is expected to commence shortly after the bid, and the successful bidder will enter into a definitive share purchase agreement with the seller around December 2014. If the Proposed Acquisition is successful; the Group would fund the project with a combination of its internal resources, allotment of new shares as well as external borrowing.

Dr. SIT Kwong Lam, Chairman of Brightoil Petroleum, said, “The Group will boost its oil and gas reserves and production if we win the bid and the Proposed Acquisition materializes. Brightoil is devoted to establishing itself as a resource-focused international oil and gas enterprise through organic growth and acquisitions of quality upstream assets.

In particular, the recent downward trend of global oil price offers us valuable acquisition opportunities. Going forward, we will continue our upstream expansion strategy to enlarge our oil and gas assets so as to deliver greater returns to shareholders and investors."

“Since the beginning of this year, there have been a number of breakthroughs in our upstream expansion. We completed the acquisitions of two premier offshore oil-producing blocks in Bohai Bay in August.

In addition, the evaluation done by DeGolyer and MacNaughton (“D&M”), an authorized independent, professional valuer based in the US, showed a substantial increase of 28.5% in the Proved plus Probable (“2P”) gas reserve in Dina 1 and Tuzigas fields. Together with our 2P reserves of approximately 42 million barrels of oil quivalent (“boe”) at the Caofeidian Project in Bohai Bay, the Group’s aggregate 2P reserves reach approximately 93.9 million boe, laying a solid foundation for our sustainable development,” added Dr. SIT Kwong Lam.
