As large, public exploration and production companies focus efforts on developing resource plays and selling conventional oil and gas assets, First Titan Corp. (OTCBB: FTTN) is dedicated to acquiring quality assets being parsed from larger company portfolios.
For large oil and gas companies, access to capital for drilling wells in resource plays such as the Eagle Ford Shale, Bakken and Marcellus Shale, is coming by selling off conventional assets and redeploying the funds. With many large-cap public companies focused on developing resource plays and selling conventional assets, competition for the assets being sold is relatively low. As private-equity firms clamor for management teams to back-fill the competition void, FTTN is poised to exploit the market and acquire producing and/or non-producing conventional assets that can be online within 60 days at more attractive economics.
Currently, FTTN is evaluating a highly promising acquisition in Hardin County, Texas, which includes several wells located on over 4,100 leased acres. Potential production from the lease position could total over 10,000 barrels per day, if a productive zone found in one of the wells is present across the entire acreage position. The target zone in the subject well was shut-in during the early 1950s after one year of production due to sand incursion, which could not be properly addressed with the technology of the time.
First Titan Corp. is building a substantial collection of oil and gas properties and is dedicated to the continuing development of energy assets throughout North America alongside companies such as Continental Resources, Inc. (NYSE: CLR), Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYSE: CHK), SandRidge Energy Inc. (NYSE: SD) and Ultra Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: UPL).
