TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/16 -- MCW Energy Group Limited ("MCW")
(TSX VENTURE: MCW) (OTCQX: MCWEF), a Canadian holding company involved in the
development of environmentally-friendly oil sands technologies and the production of oil
from Utah's vast oil sands deposits, today announced the execution of a definitive
agreement (the "Agreement") to acquire a controlling interest in Houston-based,
exploration and production (E&P) company, Accord GR Energy, Inc. ("Accord").
Accord's assets include a limited license for two enhanced oil recovery (EOR)
technologies intended for use on MCW's 2,200 acre oil sands property in Temple
It also includes equitable title pursuant to a purchase agreement to 7,000 acres in
southwest Texas, with 88 drilled and completed wells. The oil is categorized as "medium
crude" and the deposits are in the light gravity range of heavy oil at 18-22 API gravity.
Accord's SWEPT technology is designed to recover fossil hydrocarbons by improving rock
filtration and fluid properties through the use of impulse-wave based technology.
Accord's S-BRPT technology, designed to recover solid and liquid hydrocarbons through
gasification/vaporization at greater depths, is expected to expand economic recoverability
of MCW's mineral resource at depths up to 300 feet, levels currently not economical with
existing processing capabilities.
"The plan for this acquisition is to expand economic recoverability of our sub-surface
hydrocarbon assets and provide us with more flexibility in recovering our already
economical surface reserves," commented Alex Byumkin, MCW chairman. "We have
tested the technologies on our Temple Mountain site and are confident in its capabilities to
improve economical oil recoverability".
Pursuant to the Agreement, MCW will acquire 57.29% of all issued and outstanding
shares of Accord, in consideration for 59,698,308 shares of MCW and warrants to
purchase 2,000,000 shares of MCW at US$0.25 per share for three years. The common
shares issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance. The
Agreement is conditional only on the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and is
expected to close within 30 days.
