Mr. Glenn Dawson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cuda remarked: “The Offering is an integral milestone in support of the 2019 capital plan to fund the development of the significant light oil reserves assigned to the Company at year-end 2018.”
Mr. Dawson continued: “The Powder River Basin, specifically Converse County, continues to see higher activity levels from major oil and gas E&P companies and private equity backed firms. The stack of horizontal oil targets continues to deliver positive results. The Company has recognized that several additional horizontal opportunities exist below the conventional Shannon Sand on the land base, specifically within the Frontier, Niobrara and Muddy formations. These opportunities provide for further resource development possibilities on Company lands.”
