NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2015) - First Colombia Gold Corp (
Included within the terminal's 11 acres is an 11,000 square foot warehouse with office space, three truck bays, and room for over 40 trucks. The terminal also contains a loading rack, which allows the company to store and distribute product for third parties, providing an additional revenue stream through this facility. Also, because of its pickup capabilities, the facility can be used to store third party fuels for distribution to commercial clients. Additional revenue opportunities with this facility include the capability to treat, blend & reuse flow back water for use in fracking, send flow back water via rail for use in injection wells, provide fuel / lube services for both fleets and at the well site, and gather, store and distribute fresh water for the fracking process.
First Colombia Gold CEO Jason Castenir stated, "This announcement today demonstrates another piece of the broader plan being put in place. This terminal will not only give us the capacity to distribute greater quantities of fuel products, but because of our recent joint venture with Singa Energy Solutions, we will be able to source and exit much larger quantities of fuel to Singa's established customer base that utilize much larger quantities of fuel. That Joint Venture has allowed us to accelerate our growth plans and put us on the path to be very successful in selling bulk quantities of fuel products."
The company expects to close on the Pennsylvania terminal towards the end of the first quarter of 2016.
Singa Energy Solutions Chairman Alexander V. Misir stated, "Our strategy is focused on building new energy infrastructure that is contracted for the long term. Jointly, Singa and First Colombia Gold are pursuing multiple platforms for growth that include expanded hydrocarbon supply, Solar Energy projects and Waste to Energy projects. Currently we have issued Confirmed Letters of Intent to Jamaica and Belize to build and operate a total of 150 MW Solar Farm with an estimated cost of $175 million. Our aim with First Colombia Gold is to grow while maintaining a moderate risk and taking advantage of international opportunities. As the Chairman of Singa Energy Solutions, I could not be more excited about this Joint Venture, the many great opportunities ahead of us, and the number of significant projects that already are underway to help us achieve our growth strategy."
Additionally, the company announced today that the seller has accepted the terms for the previously announced acquisition of eleven convenience stores, and the company should begin the closing process on each of those stores beginning in the first quarter of 2016.
