Milagro completed a $24 million purchase of certain Gulf Coast assets of TexCal Energy South Texas, L.P. The assets acquired in the transaction include 114 wells in various counties along the Texas Gulf Coast producing approximately 550 barrels of oil equivalent per day to Milagro, with proved reserves of approximately two million BOE. The acquisition, which closed on May 14, 2010, and is effective as of January 1, 2010, adds to Milagro’s already significant presence along the Texas Gulf Coast.
This adds to Milagro's purchase of the Gulf Coast Division of Petrohawk Energy Corp. in 2007. The IPAA also ranked Milagro the 17th largest privately-held US producer by barrels of oil equivalent in 2009 with 435 wells.
“We are extremely pleased with the acquisition of these assets, as they are a good geographic fit with our existing properties and extend the life of our current reserves,” said James G. Ivey, Milagro’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “This transaction is our first opportunity to materially grow the company’s asset base since our recapitalization earlier this year and we are pursuing several similar deals. Moving forward, our strategy will be focused on continuing to grow our reserve base and developing exploitation opportunities around these new reserves.”
