Tellurian announced yesterday it has entered into an agreement with a private seller to acquire natural gas producing assets and undeveloped acreage in northern Louisiana for $85.1 million. The transaction is scheduled to close by the end of November 2017 subject to customary closing conditions.

According to a company statement the assets are located in Red River, DeSoto and Natchitoches Parishes, and include:

  • 9,200 net acres with up to 138 operated Haynesville and Bossier drilling locations 
  • Approximately 1.3 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of total natural gas resource potential 
  • 19 producing operated wells with net current production of four million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) Associated natural gas gathering and processing facilities with substantial additional capacity 
The assets are 100% held by production and 92% operated, allowing Tellurian to control the pace of development for its multi-year drilling inventory. President and CEO Meg Gentle said, "Acquisition of natural gas producing assets is integral to our growing business. We expect our full cycle cost of production and transport to markets will be approximately $2.25 per MMBtu, which represents a significant savings to natural gas we will purchase at Henry Hub and other regional liquidity points. Platts LNG Daily reported the price of LNG in the Gulf of Mexico was $5.67 per MMBtu yesterday, providing the price signal to construct additional liquefaction capacity."

Tellurian was founded by Charif Souki and Martin Houston and is led by President and CEO Meg Gentle. Tellurian plans to build a natural gas business that includes development of the Driftwood LNG terminal, an ~ 26 mtpa LNG export facility, and an associated pipeline.
