Oil & Gas Firm Avalon Oil & Gas, Inc. (AOGN.OB) Acquires Attractive Acreage

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Avalon Oil & Gas, Inc., www.avalonoil.com – an acquisition and development-focused producer of oil and gas, which also seeks out and refines energy production-enhancing technologies (via majority-owned subsidiary Oiltek, Inc.), entered into a letter of agreement to acquire an undivided 100% working interest in a 320-acre Vernon County, Missouri leasehold.

With 70+ wellbores, 20 of which are production-equipped, AOGN is in a very good position to tap the estimated 8M+ barrels of oil trapped in the southwest and east-central portions of the lease due to its command of emergent recovery maximization technologies.

The Company’s strategy, of leveraging a growing portfolio of production enhancement technologies to exploit reserves otherwise ignored via acquisition and development, has already given AOGN a strong foothold in the sector.

Vernon County has been outputting oil into the economy for 57 years, with Shell and Phillips both achieving sporadic success tapping into the Bluejacket and Warner Sandstones, and steam injection methods, begun in the 80’s, eventually yielding decent capacity.

The Ida–Fauvergue leasehold has been in limited production, using cyclic steam injection-based recovery, for 31 years, yielding 325k barrels to date.

Mega West and Colt Energy have been prepping for steam-injected recovery on their Vernon County leaseholds, testing core samples and developing the implementation profile for enhanced production units.

Work in 2004, by the University of Missouri-Rolla, took the production window in this type of configuration to a new level with the study of microbial catalysts for enhancing oil and gas recovery, and AOGN has retained both a microbiologist and a petroleum engineer with vast first-hand experience in the Bluejacket and Warner Sandstones.

Core samples from 65 of the wells on the Ida–Fauvergue, drilled in the 80’s, and its production history – in conjunction with production schematics from proven reserves on proximal land – are being rigorously vetted in anticipation of an aggressive production attitude.

Avalon Oil & Gas, Inc. (AOGN.OB) Positioned to Benefit From Rising Oil Prices

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Avalon Oil & Gas Inc. is a domestic oil and natural gas producer with leases currently in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. The company’s strategy is to use efficient reservoir maintenance and innovative oil recovery technologies on previously abandoned wells in order to produce much-needed hydrocarbon energy.

Avalon believes that global conditions in the energy market present the company with an attractive investment opportunity for proven technologies which will expand oil production efficiency in already-established oil fields. There is definitely oil to be recovered – according to the Department of Energy there is the potential to recover over 43 billion barrels of additional oil from stranded oil reserves and mature oil wells in the United States.

Finding additional oil will be important in the upcoming years. Why? The same old story – supply and demand. The supply of oil is steadily declining while the demand for oil is steadily rising.

Even before the onset of the financial crisis, oil production from many major fields globally in the Mid-East, Russia, and even Mexico’s once-giant Cantarell oil field had gone into sharp decline. And the financial crisis has only exacerbated the problem. Oil companies, both large and small, are having difficulties obtaining financing to operate their business.

In many areas, including the U.S., exploration and drilling activities have dropped by about 40%. Even giant firms have been affected – Brazilian oil giant Petrobras, who owns much of the most exciting oil discovery in decades, had problems finding financing. Russian gas giant Gazprom had trouble getting financing to even perform maintenance work on their facilities.

The International Energy Agency has said that the world needs in excess of $26 trillion in energy investments over the next 21 years in order to meet future demand. That investment is just not happening. All of this points to reduced oil production for years to come.

On the demand side, the International Energy Agency says that by 2030 the demand for oil will increase to 106 million barrels per day from the current level of around 83 million barrels per day. Why? Mainly because of the emerging economies such as China.

An example of this increased demand is the latest car sales data from China where sales in June rose 36.5% from last year to 1.14 million. Sales for the first half of 2009 were up 17.7% to 6.1 million vehicles. For the first half of 2009, U.S. sales fell to only 4.8 million cars. The engine of economic growth seems to have shifted eastward.

Despite some of Wall Street’s skepticism, the supply/demand outlook for oil is positive. This bodes well for the future of firms such as Avalon Oil & Gas which will be producing the precious commodity.

Avalon Oil & Gas, Inc. (AOGN.OB) Acquiring Oil Production Enhancing Technologies

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Avalon Oil & Gas Inc. is an independent domestic oil and natural gas producer. The company has acquired a portfolio of leases in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. Avalon’s strategy is to use efficient reservoir maintenance and innovative technology to generate stable cash flows for the company.

Avalon’s technology subsidiary acquires and develops oil production enhancing technologies from early stage licensing partners such as UTEK Inc. UTEK is a technology-transfer company that enables firms to rapidly acquire innovative technologies from universities and research laboratories worldwide.

To date, Avalon has acquired the license for two technologies. The first technology, licensed from the University of Wyoming, provides Avalon with exclusive rights to paraffin wax removal technology for improving oil production efficiency. The technology utilizes ultrasonic waves to mitigate deposits of paraffin wax from crude oil. This technology helps prevent precipitate from forming on production tubing walls and surface flow equipment, as well as helps operators maintain optimal oil viscosity thereby increasing flow rates and production efficiency.

The second technology license acquired by Avalon is from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This technology involves ‘smart oil well borehole casings’ for oil recovery. The technology uses a densely spaced network of a range of casing sensor types to monitor critical parameters in a subsurface oil reservoir. Data from the sensors is combined with data fusion technology to yield real-time knowledge of the reservoir and processes such as primary and secondary oil recovery.

Applications include real-time mapping and monitoring of subsurface fluid composition and distribution in deep oil reservoirs. Bypassed oil and fluid-flow barriers can be identified and fluid saturation changes can be mapped. All of this will allow the company to maximize hydrocarbon recovery without interfering with normal well operations.

Avalon hopes to make additions to their portfolio of oil enhancing technologies in the near future.

Avalon Oil & Gas, Inc. (AOGN.OB) Has Numerous Oil & Gas Properties – Part 3

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Avalon Oil & Gas Inc. is an independent domestic oil and natural gas producer. The company’s strategy is to use efficient reservoir maintenance and innovative technology to generate stable cash flows and production from a portfolio of oil and gas lease properties in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.

Here is a brief overview of the rest of Avalon Oil & Gas properties:

Avalon has a 10% working interest in the New Diana Field, which is located in Upshur County, Texas. The property consists of thirteen wellbores, which include six producing oil wells, three salt water disposal wells and four shut-in or marginally producing wells. The working interest was purchased from an Oklahoma independent oil producer who continues to be a partner in the property.

These wells were originally drilled in the 1960s by various operators. This property produces significant volume of salt water and as a result has a self-contained salt water disposal system. This results in a very low unit cost of salt water disposal, which is important for the company. These mature wells have stable production and produce 25 barrels of oil per day.

Avalon also owns an undivided 15% working interest in the Janssen #1A property, which is located in Karnes County, Texas. This well has been flowing at an average rate of 330 thousand cubic feet of gas per day and producing 10 to 20 barrels of high grade condensate. At present, the well is flowing into the sales line without the need of a gas compressor.

Total reserves for the well are estimated to be 75,000 to 100,000 barrels of condensate and 3 to 4 billion cubic feet of gas. The company has a gas sales contract for the well that fluctuates with the Houston Ship Channel price index and the liquid condensate will be sold at the monthly spot price for product in the regional Texas area. Avalon received their initial revenue distribution for the products sold from the well in July 2008 and this well is expected to produce revenues for many years to come.
