FieldPoint completes Apache assets sale
Austin-based FieldPoint Petroleum Corp. has completed the sale of its 25 percent working interest in a waterflood project in Caddo County for $900,000.
The project consists of 23 producing and nine injection wells in the Apache field. FieldPoint sold the assets to a private exploration and production company. FieldPoint said it used the proceeds from the sale to repay $600,000 in debt and to pay outstanding lease expenses related to the project.
“Today’s transaction is another step toward regaining compliance with the terms of our bank debt, and with the NYSE American listing requirements,” FieldPoint President Phillip Roberson said. “We plan to continue to exit low-margin noncore assets and concentrate on acquiring operated properties where we have a better ability to control operating costs.”
