Jayhawk Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JYHW) ("Jayhawk", the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has resumed production at all five of its wells near Crosby, North Dakota.
Jayhawk Energy CEO Kelly Stopher said, "On June 9th, Jayhawk Energy announced a successful capital raise of $600,000 specifically earmarked for reclamation of non-producing wells and enhancement of its existing producing assets. Through the successful efforts of our valued contractors and field personnel, the Company has resumed production at all five of its existing wells. Due to capital constraints on repair, inclimate weather and other negative conditions, the wells have not operated concurrently since September of 2012. We are pleased with the early results and expect improved cash flow coming from the North Dakota operations in the future.”
Stopher stated reclamation of the abandoned Jenks and Knudsen well sites in North Dakota is nearly finished after being hampered by heavy rain. The Company will proceed with the permitting process on a proposed salt water disposal well shortly thereafter. The proposed water disposal well will allow the producing wells to run more consistently, eliminate water-hauling expense and improve operating margins.
“Over the course of the next few weeks, the Company will continue to optimize production through acid treatment on the remaining five wells. We expect sustained production gains shortly thereafter,” Stopher said. “Jayhawk will also be looking to expand production through joint venture agreements and acquisition. The farm-out agreement signed with Vast Energy on our Kansas assets in May is starting to bear fruit and we expect operational results to continue to improve in the next fiscal year.”
