Next Bridge Hydrocarbons Announces Transactions

MIDLAND, Texas, April 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Bridge Hydrocarbons, Inc. ("Next Bridge," "our," "we," or the "Company"), an oil and natural gas exploration and production company with interests in Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma announced today the following:

Next Bridge has purchased portions of four drilling prospects from Wildcat SPV in exchange for 2,500,000 shares of Next Bridge common stock. They are the Valentine, Panther, Cowboy, and Packer Prospects, all located in southern Louisiana. Chairman and CEO Greg McCabe ("McCabe") had retained varying overriding royalty and working interests after payout on these prospects from a previous financial transaction. In order to facilitate the sales below, McCabe has agreed to forego the 25% working interest after payout he had previously, while retaining his overriding royalty interest. 

The Company is pleased to announce it has already sold its ownership in both the Valentine and Panther Prospects to an undisclosed party for net revenue of $1,093,000. Additionally, Next Bridge will receive a $240,000 spud fee on the first well of the Valentine and an $80,000 spud fee on the Panther, while retaining its proportionate share of all associated deep rights below 19,500' in the Valentine Prospect. Next Bridge has also retained the option, but not obligation, to participate in various working interests in the drilling of the two prospects. 

Next Bridge is also pleased to announce it has entered into a letter of intent to sell its retained right to participate in the working interest leasehold in the Valentine Prospect. Next Bridge will continue to market the Cowboy and Packer Prospects, the deep rights on the Valentine Prospect, and their option to participate in the Panther Prospect drilling. 

McCabe stated, "While the Orogrande asset is still our primary focus, I have made the decision with full Board support to expand into what we deem to be world-class exploration prospects. I am truly excited about these new efforts moving forward."
