The Central Kansas Uplift Properties
The Central Kansas Uplift Properties, acquired on April 1, 2021, for a purchase price of $900,000, include the production and mineral rights/leasehold for oil and gas properties in the Central Kansas Uplift geological formation. This covers over 11,000 contiguous acres, with a horizontal producing well, horizontal saltwater injection well, conventional saltwater disposal well, and two conventional vertical producing wells currently producing from the Reagan Sand Zone.
Change in Strategy
During 2022, American Noble Gas changed its strategy regarding the Central Kansas Uplift, considering the reduced net cash flows from the sale of crude oil production due to lower spot crude oil prices and higher than anticipated operating costs. Instead, the company plans to assess the existing oil and gas reserves while continuing the evaluation of the existence of new oil and gas zones and other mineral reserves, including noble gases, on the properties.
Q1 2023 Financial Highlights
In addition to exploring these intriguing noble gas reserves, American Noble Gas filed several financial highlights in its Q1 2023 report. Among them, the company reported $1,293,278 in total assets, net income of $101,672, and a stockholders’ deficit of $4,924,205 as of March 31, 2023. The company also showcased its continued commitment to exploring opportunities and strategic alternatives involving the acquisition, exploration, and development of oil and gas producing properties in the United States, including businesses or assets providing support services for domestic oil and gas production.
American Noble Gas’s move towards assessing noble gas reserves and potential new oil and gas zones comes amid increasing global demand for clean and efficient energy sources. If the company is successful in its evaluations and can commercialize its Central Kansas Uplift Properties’ noble gas reserves, it could position itself as a key player in the clean energy industry, providing investors and environmentalists alike a reason to keep a close eye on American Noble Gas.
