Oryx Petroleum reports first sales from Demir Dagh in the Kurdistan

Oryx Petroleum Corp. has sold its first offtakes of crude oil into the domestic market from the Demir Dagh field in the Hawler license area in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Oryx Petroleum is the operator and has a 65% participating and working interest in the Hawler license area.
 
Michael Ebsary, Oryx Petroleum’s CEO, stated: “We are delighted to announce that we have completed our first sales from the Demir Dagh field. This is a critical milestone in Oryx Petroleum’s evolution to becoming a full-cycle exploration, development and production company. We now look forward to increasing production, revenue and cash flow as we continue to develop Demir Dagh and our other Kurdistan discoveries.”
 
The corporation recorded its first lifting of crude oil on June 20 from the Demir Dagh field. Through June 22, 2014, the Corporation has recorded liftings totaling approximately 3,300 bbl of crude oil. The liftings are pursuant to a short term agreement to sell crude oil to a third party marketer designated by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) of the Kurdistan Regional Government.


The Demir Dagh crude oil has been sold at a price of just under $60 per barrel (as determined by the MNR) reflecting local market pricing dynamics and the medium sweet quality of the crude oil.
 
In accordance with the crude sales agreement, Oryx Petroleum is paid in advance on a regular basis throughout the term of the agreement for scheduled liftings. Liftings are continuing and are scheduled to ramp-up over the term of the agreement. The corporation expects that the agreement will be renewed at the end of its term, consistent with domestic sales practices in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
