Manas Petroleum Corp. Company Update

Manas Petroleum Corp. Company Update

Symbol Price Change
MNP.V 0.045 0.0000

BAAR, SWITZERLAND–(Marketwired – Nov 6, 2013) –  Manas Petroleum Corp. (“Manas”) (TSX VENTURE:MNP); (OTCBB:MNAP) is pleased to provide the following update.

DWM Petroleum AG (“DWM”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manas, is in the process of acquiring existing oil producing assets whose present output has the potential to be restored to earlier levels (between 50 and 3500 bopd per well) and possibly increased beyond that through the rehabilitation of these fields which are presently producing 300 bopd from depths greater than 100m.

These fields are presently run-down due to the break-up of the Soviet Union when the disappearance of ongoing investment coupled with the lack of access to newer technology resulted in these fields not being maintained. In addition to the assets’ rehabilitation potential for these fields, they have upside potential for additional development, exploration and appraisal.

Effective September 27, 2013, and subject to obtaining any regulatory approvals or consents DWM has opted to acquire 65% of the company that presently owns a majority interest in the Tajik operating company which holds the oilfield assets for an amount equivalent to USD 10.1 million dollars. This transaction is scheduled to be closed prior to year-end 2013. In addition, DWM is in actively in discussions with an investment group to provide the funding to acquire the remaining shares in the Tajik operating company as well as provide the necessary funding for the rehabilitation program.

In parallel, DWM’s technical field studies are continuing with more than 300 wells being analyzed and an initial work program in development. Presently there are approximately 100 wells are ready for work-over operations.

Exploration project in Tajikistan:

Presently, DWM is in active negotiations with several experienced exploration and production groups from Russia, China and the European Union in-order to farm out up to 70% of its current 90% interest in CJSC Somon Oil (“Somon”), the operating company of the 2 exploration blocks having the licenses for risked resources of more than 400 million MMBO. Each of these prospective partners has (either or both) petroleum exploration and production experience. Additionally, there are extended discussions occurring with the possibility of combining the exploration project with the rehabilitation project discussed above.

The project has two drill ready prospects. Drilling is expected to commence upon signing the agreements with the new Somon partner. One target is located between two fields near producing wells. The second target is a sub-salt prospect with analogues in producing fields in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Both targets have a combined potential of 180MM BO of risked resources out of the current total potential of the prospect portfolio.

Over the past several months, all the original seismic taken over the subsalt target has been reprocessed resulting in a re-location of the subsurface target; this new location is far less risky.

Mongolia

Current exploration phase of both licenses have been extended until May 20, 2015, based on a one (1) year moratorium agreed to with the Government of Mongolia. This moratorium was entered between the Petroleum authority of Mongolia and Gobi Energy (the operator of the Mongolian assets) to allow time to add certain acreage which is between the two blocks.

Albania – Petromanas DWM presently owns approximately 7.2% of the common shares of Petromanas Energy Inc. (PMI) which has its exploration focus in Albania and has farmed out 75% to Shell Oil. In addition, we have the right to receive up to 38MM performance shares in PMI, in the event of discovery of future reserves.

Work program details and current status are available on PMI`s webpage and recent press release about test results of the first well (www.petromanas.com).

Financing Manas is presently actively engaged in discussions with certain investors and potential partners for funding its future operations.

On August 8, 2013, DWM signed a Loan Agreement in an amount of EURO 4,000,000 (USD 5,322,920), with Tulip Fund NV, an investment fund incorporated under the laws of the Netherlands. This bridge financing did not close and DWM is investigating other sources of financing. In the interim the board decided to sell 50 MM PMI shares in order to avoid jeopardizing the Tajik projects. We intend to use the proceeds as working capital as well as minimum capex in Tajikistan until partner agreements are signed.

Through its 7.2 % equity interest in Petromanas Energy Inc., a Canadian public company, Manas participates in exploration projects in Albania, France and Australia.

Brookhaven Medical, Inc., an Atlanta-based medical device company with  interests in dialysis devices and advanced wound care, today announced  an agreement to acquire Wound Management Technologies, Inc. (WNDM) of Fort Worth, an emerging commercial stage company focused on the  worldwide advanced wound care market.

The letter of intent, which outlines the primary terms of a merger of  Wound Management into Brookhaven, has been approved by the board of  directors of both companies. The parties are engaged in completing a  formal merger agreement underlying the transaction which is expected to  close in the first half of 2014.

“I am pleased to enter this agreement with Wound Management,” said John  Feltman, chairman and CEO of Brookhaven. “Wound Management is an ideal  match for Brookhaven’s synergistic approach to building our leading  medical technology and products, and I believe it will be an integral  part of our success in ushering Brookhaven into the advanced wound care  industry.”

Mr. Feltman said that, in addition to the Wound Management acquisition,  Brookhaven recently entered into an agreement in principle to acquire a  medical device company specializing in dialysis access and peripheral  vascular applications, and also recently completed a strategic  investment in CreatiVasc Medical, Inc., a private company based in  Greenville, South Carolina, which is developing a breakthrough  hemoaccess valve system for dialysis grafts. He said that CreatiVasc is  one of only three companies recently selected by the FDA for inclusion  in its Innovation Pathway Program. http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20130723005969/en/Brookhaven-Medical-5-Million-Investment-CreatiVasc-Medical%E2%80%99s

Mr. Feltman said that he “believes that Brookhaven can achieve rapid  growth and significant market share. The global market segments we serve  represent a market opportunity in excess of $50 billion. It is our firm  belief that Wound Management and our other planned acquisitions help  position Brookhaven to capture a significant share of product sales in  those targeted market segments,” he said.

Speaking for Wound Management, Robert Lutz, Jr., its chairman and CEO,  said his company “is excited to execute this LOI and move forward with  Brookhaven toward a definitive merger agreement. By merging with  Brookhaven, Wound Management will be better able to implement our  strategic plan and should also be welcome news to our shareholders in  maximizing their return on investment as we become part of Brookhaven.

“By working with Brookhaven, we have the best opportunity for our  CellerateRX® wound care and surgical products to achieve substantial  growth and to expeditiously take our emerging resorbable bone wax  technology to market,” he said.
