POINT ROBERTS, WA--(Marketwire -10/19/11)- Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including oil and gas stocks, issues a recent exclusive interview with Kim Bradford, President and CEO of Osage Exploration and Development, Inc. (OTC.BB: OEDV.OB - News), discussing the Company's recent expansion to 15,000 net acres in the Nemaha Ridge, Oklahoma horizontal Mississippian play.
The Mississippian formation play is heating up in terms of new entrants. Recently PetroQuest Energy announced they had closed its Mississippian Lime acquisition of 28,250 acres for an adjusted purchase price of $24,100,000. Can you share with investors what you are seeing in terms of growing interest from the majors and why?
A: Kim Bradford, President and CEO of Osage Exploration and Development, Inc.
All of the major Oklahoma based publicly traded oil and gas exploration companies have been involved in developing horizontal Mississippian projects. SandRidge Energy, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, Devon Energy Corporation, Range Resources, Continental Resources, as well as many privately owned Oklahoma based companies are involved in the play. PetroQuest joins the growing list of non-Oklahoma based companies acquiring horizontal Mississippian projects. What I believe we are seeing is a similar sort of phenomenon like we have witnessed in the Marcellus shale play, the Haynesville shale play, and others which is that companies feel that they have to be exposed to this play. Strategically, the bigger oil companies cannot afford to miss a domestic opportunity with great economics, unless it is truly outside their area of focus or expertise. It is fair to say that almost every significant oil company in America has access and expertise in the Mid-Continent, so we are seeing a groundswell in the number of companies endorsing the horizontal Mississippian in Oklahoma.
