Chaparral Energy to acquire Edge Petroleum

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 15 -- Chaparral Energy Inc. agreed to acquire Edge Petroleum Corp. in an all-stock transaction. The privately held Chaparral will become a public company in the process. Value of the transaction was not disclosed.

The boards of both companies unanimously approved the transaction, which remains subject to Edge stockholders approval. Chaparral's stockholders have approved it.

Closing is expected during the fourth quarter. Following closing, Chaparral expects its board will consist of nine directors, at least two of which will have been Edge board members.

Chaparral stockholders will own 86% of outstanding common stock of the combined company, and Edge stockholders will own 14% of the outstanding common stock of the combined company.

Edge common stockholders will receive 0.2511 shares of Chaparral common stock for each share of Edge common stock they own. The merger is expected to be a tax-free transaction for existing Edge stockholders.

The resulting combined company will have estimated proved reserves of 1.15 tcf equivalent of gas as of Dec. 31, 2007. About 56 % of the reserves are crude oil, and 67% is proved.

Of the combined developed proved reserves, 66% are in the Midcontinent, 17% in the Gulf Coast, 10% in the Permian basin and 7% in other basins. Production for the first quarter of 2008 was 172 MMcfd equivalent.

Chaparral's headquarters will remain in Oklahoma City, and the company will use Edge's headquarters in Houston as a regional Gulf Coast office.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
