/EIN News/ -- Haas Petroleum to Implement Exploration and Development Plan Related to Infinity Energy’s Acquisition of 11,000 Leasehold acres in Central Kansas

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infinity Energy Resources, Inc. (Pink Sheets: IFNY) ("Infinity" or the "Company"), an independent oil and gas exploration and development company, today announced that it has signed an operating agreement (the “Agreement”) which appoints Haas Petroleum, LLC (“Haas Petroleum”) as the operator for the Company’s planned purchase of existing production and mineral rights to oil & gas properties in Central Kansas that cover over 11,000 contiguous acres (the “Properties”).

The Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which Haas Petroleum will oversee and direct the day-to-day activities at Infinity’s domestic oil and gas leases. Infinity is moving forward with its strategic plan to expand into domestic exploration and development projects, principally the completion of the purchase of existing production and mineral rights to the Properties in Central Kansas. The purchase will include the existing production equipment and access to existing 3-D seismic data on the acreage.

Haas Petroleum’s history dates back to 1935. It now operates over 1,600 wells throughout Kansas and ranks as one of the state’s top 50 oil producers. It works on projects with companies from California, Texas, Kansas and Canada. Haas Petroleum’s affiliated company, Sky Drilling, LLC, owns and operates five full-service drilling rigs with drilling capability of up to 5,000 feet.

Haas will implement the Company’s exploration and development plan regarding the Company’s planned purchase of existing production and mineral rights to the Properties in Central Kansas. The Properties include one existing horizontal producing well, one horizontal saltwater injection well, one conventional saltwater disposal well, and two conventional, vertical producing wells which produce from the Reagan Sand Zone from an approximate depth of 3,600 feet. The acquisition is expected to close prior to December 31, 2019, subject to the Company obtaining adequate financing. The exploration and development program will include the drilling of at least six (6) conventional production wells following the closing of the acquisition, subject to obtaining sufficient financing. Mark Haas, President of Haas Petroleum, is a member of Core Energy, LLC, the owner of the Properties.

"We are excited to work with such a well-known and experienced oil and gas lease operator such as Haas Petroleum," said Stanton E. Ross, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Infinity Energy Resources. "Mark Haas, President of Haas Petroleum, has immense knowledge and experience as a fourth-generation Kansas oil-man. Haas Petroleum has the capabilities and resources to economically and effectively implement the operational plan and drilling services we require. Haas Petroleum also is the current operator on the Properties which provides us with invaluable historical knowledge of the Properties as we develop our specific drilling and exploration plans,” concluded Ross.

"We are pleased to partner with Infinity Energy on its domestic exploration and development plans and excited about the potential development of the oil & gas reserves located on the Properties. Based on available data and subject to further analysis, we believe the Properties will provide Infinity the opportunity for significant discovery and development of oil & gas reserves that can be economically produced at relatively low risk with low lifting costs, in one of the more prolific basins in the heartland of USA, " stated Mark Haas, President of Haas Petroleum.
