HOUSTON, TX /ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2018 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: CEI) (the "Company" or "Camber"), based in Houston, Texas, a growth-oriented, independent oil and gas company engaged in the development of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids, provides an update on its workover activities.
Since closing the Panhandle acquisition in Hutchinson County, Texas, the Company has worked over thirty-one wells, which includes two salt water disposal wells and twenty-nine potential producers. Twenty-nine wells have been restored to production and are currently conducting flow-rate test. Additionally, the Company has another nineteen wells to workover, funding permitting.
These activities are all consistent with the Company's previously announced growth plans.
The Company is also evaluating additional opportunities close to its Panhandle assets.
The Company is also continuing to work towards closing its previously announced sale transaction with N& B Energy, LLC ("N&B"), which is anticipated to close within the next three weeks. As noted previously, if the transaction closes, N&B will assume all of Camber's approximately $37 million of senior secured debt with International Bank of Commerce (“IBC”), or alternatively, if Camber transfers its assets to IBC, the Company will be granted a novation from the obligation to satisfy all of its debt owed to IBC. This will significantly improve the Company's balance sheet with the satisfaction of debt and sale/transfer of substantially depreciated assets and improve cash flow with the elimination of monthly debt service obligations of approximately $450,000 related to those assets.
