Operating income net to Tamarack Valley from the Properties in the first quarter of 2022 averaged approximately $180,000 per month, or $2.2 million on an annualized basis. Tamarack Valley is forecasting monthly net operating income to exceed $300,000 based on current pricing.

LMR Summary

As of April 2, 2022, Tamarack Valley’s net deemed asset value for the Properties was $7.6 million (deemed assets of $11.8 million and deemed liabilities of $4.2 million), with an LMR ratio of 2.80.
 
The LMR for each of the Properties as of April 2, 2022 is summarized below.

 
Summary of LMR by Property

 
Tamarack Valley has an internal asset retirement obligation (“ARO”) estimate for the Pakowki and Forty Mile properties. The internal estimate accounts for wells only and totals approximately $1.9 million. While this estimate excludes $167,500 in deemed facility liabilities, it is considerably lower than the $3.2 million in deemed liabilities assigned by the Alberta Energy Regulator (“AER”) for these properties.
 
The internal ARO estimate is based on type well abandonment costs of $10,600 per well and a detailed breakdown of that cost will be provided in the virtual data room for parties which execute a confidentiality agreement. Due to the nature of these abandonments being single zone, shallow and sweet, they can be completed by wireline alone. The Company believes there will be a scale efficiency available with multiple wells being able to be abandoned per day which will allow for outperformance of AER estimates. Tamarack Valley’s estimate of $10,000 per well for reclamation is based on experience with similar wells in the area (shallow natural gas, minimal disturbance leases) and would also benefit from the ability to scale up the program.


Seismic Overview

The Company does not have an interest in any seismic data relating to the Properties.


Reserves Overview

GLJ Ltd. (“GLJ”) prepared an independent reserves evaluation of the Quaich property as part of the Company’s year-end evaluation (the “GLJ Report”). The GLJ Report is effective December 31, 2021 using an average of GLJ, McDaniel & Associates Consultants Ltd. and Sproule Associates Limited’s January 1, 2022 forecast pricing.
 
The Forty Mile and Pakowki properties were not evaluated as part of the GLJ Report.


Marketing Overview

Tamarack Valley does not have any specific natural gas contracts in place for the Properties as the natural gas is pooled.
 
The Forty Mile and Pakowki properties are close in proximity to one another as shown in the following image. Natural gas from Forty Mile flows to Montana and natural gas from Pakowki flows to the Nova Gas Transmission Line. Natural gas from Quaich and Pakowki is sold at the AECO NIT hub.

PROCESS & TIMELINE

Sayer Energy Advisors is accepting cash offers to acquire the Properties until 12:00 pm on Thursday June 16, 2022. 


 
Sayer Energy Advisors does not conduct a "second-round" bidding process; the intention is to attempt to conclude a
transaction(s) with the party(ies) submitting the most acceptable proposal(s) at the conclusion of the process.

Sayer Energy Advisors is accepting cash offers from interested parties until
noon on Thursday June 16, 2022.

NOTE REGARDING A SAYER PROCESS
 
On each and every offering brochure generated by Sayer, you will note the sentence “Sayer Energy Advisors does not conduct a “second-round” bidding process; the intention is to attempt to conclude a sale of the Property with the party submitting the most acceptable proposal at the conclusion of the process.” What this means is that Sayer will not go back to multiple parties at the same time after bids are received, asking them all for a second bid. We determine which party submitted the most acceptable proposal and then we attempt to negotiate acceptable terms with that party in a “one-off” situation.

If the process involves a cash sale of a property or company and the party which submitted the most acceptable proposal has met our client’s threshold value, that offer will be accepted. If this proposal does not meet our client’s threshold value, then we will advise that party that the offer is not quite what our client was expecting, and we will ask them to increase the offer. If that offer is not acceptable to our client, we will then move down to the party which submitted the next most acceptable proposal and we will then work with that party to attempt to meet our client’s threshold value.

 
In the extremely rare circumstance where two or more parties submit virtually identical proposals, we will contact all  parties, we will advise them of this situation and we will ask them to submit a revised proposal.  Once these are received, we will work with the party which has submitted the most acceptable proposal.

CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT

Parties  wishing to receive access to the confidential information with detailed  technical information relating to this opportunity should execute the  Confidentiality Agreement and return one copy to Sayer Energy Advisors by  courier, email (tpavic@sayeradvisors.com) or fax (403.266.4467).
