Cougar Oil and Gas Canada Inc. (OTC:COUGF) reports that a Farm-in agreement has been finalized regarding the development of a heavy oil prospect in Alberta.
The press release is quoted as saying:
Cougar has entered into a two phase farm-in agreement with TAMM Oil and Gas Corporation (TAMM) which will ultimately result in Cougar earning a 50% working interest in approximately 47 sections or 30,000 acres of heavy oil prospective lands in the Manning area. This is in the same area as the heavy oil farm-in agreement previously announced by the Corporation on February 14, 2011. TAMM originally acquired these lands in 2008 and has a previously prepared independent third party estimate of 3.14 billion barrels of original oil in place for the prospect. The Farm-in agreement has two earning phases which will allow Cougar to become the operator and earn a 50% working interest in the prospect. The first phase of the farm-in is a work commitment to earn a 30% working interest of the TAMM prospect. The work commitment will consist of Cougar spending $2.5 million over the next 12 months on a work program consisting of seismic and drilling evaluation, and independent third party geological and project feasibility studies. Cougar will also become the operator of the project area once the first phase is completed.
