About EnerJex Resources
EnerJex Resources, Inc. is an independent exploration and production company focused on the acquisition and development of oil and natural gas properties located in the mid-continent region of the United States. The Company owns oil and gas leases covering nearly 100,000 net acres in multiple prolific hydrocarbon basins located in four states including Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas.
EnerJex's operations are focused in five distinct projects where the company produces oil and natural gas from reservoirs that are characterized by long lived reserves with low production decline rates. Within these projects, the Company has identified more than 500 low-risk drilling locations. Through its large acreage footprint in the Denver-Julesburg ("DJ") Basin, EnerJex also has significant exposure to emerging oil resource plays that are being pursued by competitors on trend with the Company's properties. EnerJex's headquarters are located in San Antonio, Texas, and additional information is available on its website at www.enerjex.com .
This press release and the materials referenced herein include "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements give EnerJex's current expectations or forecasts of future events. The statements in this press release and such referenced materials regarding the use of proceeds and the completion of drilling for and commencement of operations at new wells, successful production at newly drilled wells, expected increases in overall production, the acquisition of operating assets and related agreements, any implied or perceived benefits from any current or future transaction, and any other effects resulting from any of those matters, are forward-looking statements. Such statements involve material risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to: whether newly drilled or newly acquired properties will produce at levels consistent with management's expectations; market conditions; whether we will experience equipment failures and, if they materialize, whether we will be able to fund repair work without materially impairing planned production levels or the availability of capital for further production increases; the ability of EnerJex to meet its loan covenants under the debt facility that is expected to fund the costs of the new wells and to obtain financing from other sources for continued drilling; the costs of operations; delays, and any other difficulties related to producing oil; the ability of EnerJex to integrate the newly producing assets; the ability to retain necessary skilled workers to operate the new producing wells; the price of oil; EnerJex's ability to market and sell produced minerals; the risks and effects of legal and administrative proceedings and governmental regulation; future financial and operational results; competition; and general economic conditions. Should one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those indicated. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements are set forth in our Forms S-1 and 10-K filed with the SEC. EnerJex undertakes no obligation to revise or update such statements to reflect current events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. EnerJex's production forecasts are dependent upon many assumptions, including estimates of production decline rates from existing wells and the outcome of future drilling activity. Although EnerJex believes the expectations and forecasts reflected in these and other forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance they will prove to have been correct. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties.
