West Vancouver, British Columbia – August 1, 2019 – Cobra Venture Corporation (the “Company” or “Cobra”), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a participation agreement ( the “Agreement”) with Makk Energy Ltd., a private oil and gas company controlled by Murray Rodgers, a Director of Cobra and QC Energy LLC, a private oil and gas company based in Denver, Colorado.
Pursuant to the Agreement and in exchange for Cobra agreeing to fund a $150,000, three-month geotechnical work and leasing program to identify and capture low risk, lower cost oil field development opportunities in California, Cobra will have an option, following evaluation of the results of the study, to elect to participate in a drilling program to be further defined at that time. Cobra will also earn a 25% working interest in this initial program.
Additionally, Cobra is pleased to report that its oil and gas revenue for the three-month period ended May 31, 2019 was $310,706, compared to $158,666 in the comparative three-month period ended May 31, 2018. The increase in production revenue was primarily due to a $152,040 increase in production revenue from the Gull Lake Property resulting from three successful oil wells which were drilled on the property over the past 24 months. One additional well was unsuccessful and has been suspended pending further evaluation. As well, direct costs for the three-month period ended May 31, 2019 were $184,911, compared to $123,466 in the comparative three month period ended May 31, 2018 The increase in direct costs was primarily a result of an increase in production revenue in comparison to the comparative period and differences in depletion base used upon revisions from the technical reports completed for the year ended November 30, 2018. Lastly, operating expenses for the three-month period ended May 31, 2019 were $126,927, compared to $121,700 in the comparative three-month period ended May 31, 2018. Expenses were comparable and did not fluctuate significantly in this period with the decrease mainly due to a reduction of management and consulting fees.
