Elixir Petroleum cuts costs to focus on exploring Colorado oil project


Elixir Petroleum (ASX:EXR) has reduced its corporate overheads to preserve cash for exploration of the Petra Project that targets multi-million barrel conventional oil prospects in Colorado.

These include cutting non-executive director fees by 20% and the chairman’s by 25%.

In addition, Michael Price has stepped down as a non-executive director. The company’s board now consists of the managing director, an independent non-executive chairman and two non-executive directors.

Further permanent and temporary cost savings are also being introduced to reflect the current market conditions.

Elixir has a 50% working interest in 25,000 net acres of acreage adjacent to 2,000 barrels per day oil fields in Colorado.

It is funding the first US$1.5 million of exploration expenditure with about US$300,000 funded to date on seismic data, reprocessing and interpretation.

The Petra Project is located in a region with proven, repeatable, conventional oil discoveries that required low cost (less than $1 million) vertical exploration wells.

It has multiple stacked objectives with wells delivering payback within three months.

The company had $2.3 million in cash as at 30 September 2014.
