Pegasi Energy Resources Corporation, a Nevada corporation (“PERC” or “Pegasi”), is an independent organic growth-oriented energy company engaged in the exploration and production of natural gas and oil through the development of a repeatable, low geological risk, high potential project in the active East Texas oil and gas region. Pegasi currently holds interests in properties located in Marion and Cass County, Texas, home to the giant Rodessa oil field, which has produced approximately 2.3 trillion cubic feet of gas and 400 million barrels of oil. The field has historically been the domain of small independent operators and is not a legacy field for any major oil company.
Pegasi’s business strategy, which it has designated the “Cornerstone Project” or “CP”, is to identify and exploit resources in and adjacent to existing or indicated producing areas within the Rodessa field area. PERC intends to quickly develop and produce reserves at a low cost and will take an aggressive approach to exploiting its contiguous acreage position through utilization of “best in class” drilling, completion and seismic technology. PERC believes that its management team is uniquely familiar with the history and geology of the CP area based on their collective experience in the region as well as through PERC’s ownership of a large proprietary database which details the drilling history of the CP area over the previous 28 years. PERC believes its drilling strategy combined with the application of 3-D seismic imaging technology and the application of new drilling and completion techniques will enable it to find significant gas and oil reserves in the CP area. Its management team will also use its extensive experience and industry relationships to grow the Company through new leasing and farm-in opportunities.
Pegasi is the successor entity to First Southern Crown Ltd., a Texas limited partnership formed in December 2002 as a holding company for a number of operating subsidiaries. Prior to the formation of First Southern Crown Ltd., PERC’s principals spent over three years and invested over $3.5 million in equity in data harvesting, evaluating and acreage acquisition on the Cornerstone Program. These assets were assigned to First Southern Crown by TR Energy, Inc., which was incorporated in 1999 by Mike Neufeld and William Sudderth, Pegasi’s principal shareholders. Operations from December 2002 to December 2004, were funded by Mr. Neufeld, Mr. Sudderth and by a $15 million mezzanine financing. Approximately $7.5 million was drawn down from the mezzanine facility and used for drilling an initial five wells. In December 2004, First Souther Crown sold a thirty percent (30%) interest in all of its production, acreage position, pipeline and disposal plant to Marion Energy Limited, an entity publicly traded on the Australian stock exchange. Proceeds from the sale amounted to $10 million and were used to repay the mezzanine facility and residual interest.
In March 2007, Pegasi was formed as a Texas corporation, and First Southern Crown Ltd. changed its name to PERC and converted into that Texas corporation as part of a consolidation and corporate restructuring
