Aroway paid 50% of the total consideration for the rolling option and the 3D seismic, and will pay 50% of all costs associated with the development of the Lands to earn 50% of all revenue generated from these acquired Lands. The Farmor will retain a variable royalty depending on the location of the drilling target that will range from 7.5% to 12.5%. The execution of the rolling option agreement gives Aroway access to a total of 79 sections of land in the Company's Core operating area within the Peace River Arch of northern Alberta.
Chris Cooper, President of Aroway, commented, "The execution of the option agreement enables us to become a fast growing player in our core area. Aroway has grown from a 4 section farmout to having access to 79 sections in one of the hottest regions of Northern Alberta in just 4 months. We look forward to continued exploration success in 2011."
Aroway is also very pleased to report that workover operations on the Partnership's recent well acquired through the 5 section acquisition announced on January 31, 2011 have been completed. Current production from the well has been increased 250% from 20 boe/day to 50 boe/day (25 boe/day net to Aroway).
