PetroSun Issues Helium Program Update and Announces Estimated Helium Reserves in Holbrook Basin of $4.7 Billion

PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2024 / PetroSun, Inc (OTC PINK:PSUD) (the "Company") announced today two separate transactions that provided assignments of Oil, Gas and Helium working interests in the Central Holbrook Basin to Exodus Energy, Inc and Pivot Point Energy, Inc. The working interest covers 11,430.53 acres of ASLD leases, subject to the working interest partners respective participation.

The working interest acquired by the parties totals seventy-five percent (75%), with Exodus Energy acquiring fifty percent (50%) and Pivot Point Energy obtaining a twenty-five percent (25%) working interest position. The balance of the working interest is held by PetroSun and affiliates.

The Central Holbrook Basin and the leases subject to the above transactions are associated with structures that have been drilled by PetroSun or its subsidiaries and are proven to contain commercial concentrations of helium. The helium concentrations within the gas streams peaked at 9.3% per the analysis provided by Wyoming Analytical Lab. A Contingent Resource Report was issued by MHA and later confirmed by Sproule that the helium potential of the Concho Dome structure has a median recoverable helium reserve estimate of 3.453 billion cubic feet. Based on a lower-case market price of $250 per thousand cubic feet the Central Holbrook Basin Concho Dome calculates to have a gross valuation of approximately $863 million.

The Sproule Report on the adjacent Central Holbrook cluster of structures contained within the leasehold were stated to have recoverable helium reserves of 15.467 billion cubic feet based on a stochastic evaluation. The lower-case gross economic value of these structures would exceed $3.86 billion.

PetroSun CEO Gordon LeBlanc, Jr stated, "My primary purpose on returning to the Company a year ago was to bring PetroSun into revenue generating status. It has been a 30-year journey in the Holbrook Basin and I am grateful to now bring in partners that can cause the commercialization of the gas that would not burn on a July 4th more than two decades ago. Exodus Energy has committed to acquiring and commissioning a helium processing plant, subject to the flow-testing and gas composition analysis of existing wellbores. Both parties have also committed to the drilling of helium development wells during 2024 and beyond, subject to successful efforts. Operational updates will be provided on a regular basis during the next 90 days."

"Finally, it is personally painful to not have Chris Sumner and John Templin with us to witness all of our combined efforts and sacrifice to see this project enter this long-desired phase of operations. No doubt that you are with us in spirit."
