1st NRG Corporate Update December 2016

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Dec 20, 2016) - 1st NRG Corp. ( OTC PINK : FNRC ), an exploration and production company headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has issued a corporate update to shareholders on the past year's progress and its plans for 2017.

CEO Kevin Norris noted, "These are exciting times at 1st NRG Corp.! We are embarking on a path which will launch us on a growth trajectory for 2017. Many of the steps to do that have been put in place over the past year, and we now expect to see the results of those efforts."

The company's 2016 highlights, and upcoming efforts include:

  • In November, the company announced the potential acquisition of a natural gas gathering system. The system will cover over 364 miles and give the Company access to over 100,000 acres of potential development. We are negotiating the purchase and sale agreement right now and hope to close in Q1 2017.

  • The Company expanded its activities into Ohio participating in a development of prospective acreage encompassing approximately 7,000 acres. In 2014, a vertical test well was drilled, logged, cored and cased to a depth of approximately 7,620 feet, testing the Utica Shale but ultimately completed in the Beekmantown Dolomite. The well has been acidized and pumping equipment has been installed; we estimate our share of reserves to be 251 MCFE and production to begin January 2017.

  • The company plans to bring the Clabaugh Ranch field in Wyoming back into production Q1 2017. Our estimated reserves at Clabaugh Ranch are 18.7 BCF.

  • The company is in discussions to raise $25-30 million dollars for the announced acquisitions and for a few that are planned.

CEO Kevin Norris continued: "While commodity prices in 2016 led to us being a bit inactive, this year it is turning around and we are set up to hit the ground running."
