Interview Excerpt:
Q: Investorideas.com
The Company just announced it closed an agreement whereby Slawson Exploration Company, Inc. and U.S. Energy Development Corporation have acquired 45% and 30% respectively of Osage's Nemaha Ridge project in Oklahoma for gross consideration of $4,875,000.00 plus a 10% net carry on the first three horizontal Mississippian wells. Can you discuss the significance of the partners and what role they play moving forward?
A: Kim Bradford, President and CEO of Osage Exploration and Development, Inc.
Yes I can. Large oil companies have departments full of people and those people tend to be interchangeable in any given situation. Because we are not a large oil company, the individuality of the partners becomes paramount in determining how we go forward. In our situation, the Principals of each company come together and make decisions. The fact that Slawson and USEDC have done many deals together over the years, and the fact that Osage's VP Exploration, Greg Franklin, has known Steve Slawson for over 20 years means that from day one this partnership has a culture of trust and long term respect for each other. This is essential for success because in creating this financial partnership we have also created the Operating team. In this project there are no passive partners, we all bring a level of expertise in the various functional areas necessary to drill and exploit this resource. We are all rallying behind our Operator, Slawson, to provide leadership, but Slawson has selectively asked each of us to perform certain tasks along the way. From Osage's perspective, we have gained a tremendous amount of engineering expertise that we simply did not have. We have gained access to two superbly experienced land teams to complement the work that we have done already. Perhaps most importantly, Slawson as a driller owns rigs that we may elect to use in our project. The value of that can not be understated because as the Horizontal Miss play continues to heat up, it is pretty easy to forecast equipment shortages, and we have the solution already in place. This is a superb team with an abundance of talent, expertise, equipment and experience in horizontal drilling.
