HOUSTON, TEXAS – 10-09-2017 (Press Release Jet) — American Oil & Gas Inc. (OTC Markets: AOIX), is pleased to announce that it has agreed to the terms of a Farm-in Agreement on the Sinu-9 block located in the Lower Magdalena Valley Basin in Colombia.

The Company has entered into a Letter of Intent with PentaNova Energy Corp. to Farm-in on PentaNova´s interest held in the Sinu-9 block (313,639 gross acres), located in the Cordoba Province in the Lower Magdalena Valley Basin of Colombia. To complete the agreement, the Company will Farm-in for 50% of the PentaNova´s 80% beneficial working interest, by way of replacing the guarantee required by the ANH license, as well as funding 100% of the Phase I minimum exploration work program under the ANH contract, over the next 3 years. PentaNova shall reimburse 50% of the funds invested by AOG in the Phase I activities from 70% of PentaNova´s net production. Further capital commitments will be assumed proportionally by the partners. The remaining working interest on the block is held 15% by Desarrolladora Oleum and 5% by Clean Energy.

The Sinu-9 block is located adjacent to Canacol’s Esperanza block and approximately 14km from the Northern gas trunk line which has available capacity.  The Company believes the block contains substantial gas reserves based on initial wells drilled, and the available seismic data providing evidence of commercial natural gas accumulations.  The Company is evaluating, in conjunction with PentaNova, an initial workover of a discovery well drilled in 1992, which tested over 10MMscf/d.  Work is expected to begin in the first quarter of next year.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
