New Source Energy Partners L.P. Announces Second Acquisition in Southern Dome Field
New Source Energy Partners L.P. (NYSE:NSLP) (the “Partnership”) announced today that it has acquired working interests in 23 producing wells and related undeveloped leasehold rights from CEU Paradigm, LLC, an affiliate of Exelon Corporation. The properties are located in the Southern Dome field, located in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. The transaction closed on January 31, 2014, with an effective date of August 1, 2013.
The purchase price for the acquisition, after closing adjustments, was approximately $18.8 million, of which $6.9 million was paid in cash at closing, and the remaining $11.9 million was paid by delivery of 488,667 common units of the Partnership. In addition, the Partnership also has agreed to pay additional consideration in the fourth quarter of 2014 if certain conditions are satisfied. The additional amount payable by the Partnership, if any, will be based on recently improved average daily production rates from these properties once these improved rates have been verified over a nine-month measurement period ending September 30, 2014, and will be calculated using the base pricing methodology for the acquisition, after accounting for the Partnership’s initial acquisition cost, certain capital expenditures and related costs of capital. Any additional amount owed will be payable in cash and/or additional common units of the Partnership, as determined by the Partnership.
“Today’s announcement represents the second acquisition the Partnership has made in the Southern Dome field, which is adjacent to our core acreage and is an additional source of revenue for our partnership,” said Kristian Kos, President and CEO of New Source Energy GP, LLC, the Partnership’s general partner. “Today we have acquired more wells and a higher working interest than our first transaction in the Southern Dome, underscoring both our confidence in this field and our commitment to growth.”
