Maiden Oil and Gas Reserves 

ASX Announcement 6 December 2018

Confirm Success of Acreage Acquisition and Re-valuation Model

Perth, Western Australia – December 6, 2018 - Brookside Energy Limited (ASX: BRK) (Brookside or the Company) is pleased to provide shareholders and investors with details of our maiden estimate of oil and gas reserves attributable to our holdings in the worldclass Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma.


  • Net oil and gas reserves of 3.45 MMboe attributable to ~20% of Brookside’s total Anadarko Basin holdings 
  • Proved reserves (PDP and PUD) estimated at 2.83 MMboe (~82% of total reserves), with a further 617 Mboe attributable to the Probable reserve category 
  • Combined NPV10 (PDP, PUD and Probable) of US$12.5 million with forecast future net revenues of US$37.75 million 
  • NPV10 per acre at ~US$30,000 confirms highly successful and scalable acreage acquisition and re-valuation business model 

Commenting on the announcement, Brookside Managing Director, David Prentice said:

“These outstanding results clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of our acreage acquisition and re-valuation business model, the quality of the acreage and oil and gas reservoirs identified within it and very importantly, the calibre of our team in Oklahoma that is responsible for identifying, securing and developing these opportunities.

In the short term we will continue to work hard to close the gap between our current market capitalisation of ~US$10 million and the combined value of these proved reserves and the potential of the remaining 80% of our Anadarko Basin holdings.asd 

Beyond that we are very excited by the opportunity we have to reward our shareholders as we scale-up both reserves and acreage, with development of our acreage and increases to our holdings in this world-class basin.”


Brookside’s partner and manager of US operations, Black Mesa Production, LLC (Black Mesa) has prepared an estimate of the oil and gas reserves and future net revenues for certain petroleum property interests owned by Brookside. These interests consist of non-operated working interests and royalty interests in Oklahoma (see Appendix 1 for details of the relevant properties and operators). The estimated net reserves and future net revenues for these interests are summarised by reserve category in Table 1.

The estimated future net revenue shown in Table 1 should be realised from the sale of the estimated net reserves after the deduction of Black Mesa’s “back-in after payout” (as set out in the Drilling Program and Acquisitions Program Agreements), royalties, production taxes, direct operating costs and required capital expenditures, where applicable. Future net revenue is before the deduction of federal and state income taxes.

The estimates shown are for proved developed producing, proved undeveloped, and probable reserves. The estimates do not include any possible reserves that may exist within these properties. These estimates do not include any value that could be attributed to interests in undeveloped acreage beyond those tracts for which undeveloped reserves have been estimated.

The property interests evaluated in this release were obtained by Brookside pursuant to the terms of the Drilling Program and Acquisitions Program Agreements between Black Mesa Production and BRK Oklahoma Holdings, LLC (BRK Oklahoma) (refer to the Company’s ASX announcement dated May 24, 2016).

The Anadarko Basin is a geologic feature covering approximately fifty thousand square miles primarily in west-central Oklahoma, but including the upper Texas Panhandle, southwestern Kansas, and south-eastern Colorado. The basin contains sedimentary deposits ranging in thickness from two thousand feet on its northern and western flanks to forty thousand feet in its southern portion. Significant oil and gas discoveries have been made throughout this region, including the Hugoton-Panhandle Gas Field of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas in the 1920’s and numerous others in Oklahoma, such as the West Edmond Field, the Union City Field, and the Elk City Field, after 1950.

The Anadarko Basin is recognised as a heavyweight among United States shale regions in terms of oil and natural gas production.  The basin has a long history of oil and gas production with current production estimated to be in the order of 600,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The combination of science, technological advancement, and experimentation over the last three years (in a sub US$60 oil price environment) has led to broad productivity gains across the so called shale regions. The implementation of these improved drilling and development techniques has seen a dramatic surge in activity across the Anadarko Basin. The region’s current active rig count of 129 is behind only the Permian Basin in Texas, with the Anadarko Basin recognised as sitting among the top most productive oil and gas regions based on EIA data.

The majority of the activity within the Anadarko Basin is centred on the STACK (Sooner Trend Anadarko Canadian and Kingfisher) and SCOOP (South Central Oklahoma Oil Province) plays of Oklahoma.

Current estimates point to annual drilling and completion capital expenditure across the STACK and SCOOP Plays at in excess of US$3.0 billion.  This investment is driven largely by the productivity of the wells being drilled in these plays, with IHS estimating a break-even point of under US$30 per barrel for the top producing wells in the STACK Play, which is comparable to wells drilled in the top Permian plays.

The Company commenced its leasing campaign in the STACK and SCOOP Plays in early 2016 and this program is currently ongoing. Further details in relation to the Company’s holdings across the STACK and SCOOP Plays can be found via disclosures listed under the Investors tab.
