Jericho Energy Ventures Set to Capitalize on Strong Global Petroleum Demand

JEV's oil and gas portfolio continues to see steady production; Company intends to move back into development mode to meet growing demand and increase revenues

NEWTOWN, PA and VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 12, 2022 / Jericho Energy Ventures (TSXV:JEV)(OTC:JROOF) (Frankfurt:JLM0) ("Jericho" or "JEV" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its Mid-Continent oil and gas portfolio, which is benefitting as a result of dramatic, recent increases in global demand for petroleum products.

The world is currently seeing elevated global crude oil and natural gas prices, levels not seen in over eight years. Globally, hydrocarbons are responsible for roughly 85% of energy consumption and will be a part of the energy mix for decades to come.¹

The Company is pleased to outline how price increases positively affect its bottom line and per-share value:

Field-level operating cash flow margins for Jericho's oil and gas assets are expected to increase by approximately 15-18% when comparing 2020-2021YTD to 2022E (based on the current oil futures strip). Each incremental dollar of revenue from higher oil and gas prices falls straight to the Company's bottom line.

Jericho's JV oil and gas assets are primarily focused in the Hunton, Mississippi Lime, Woodford Shale and the Anadarko Basin STACK Play formations in Oklahoma, where it holds approximately 52,000 net acres, mostly held by production. Of note, production is unhedged, offering full leverage to current oil prices.

Jericho's operations team has structurally lowered production costs throughout the lower oil price environment from which the Company is now emerging. This significant increase in profits will provide Jericho's team the opportunity to execute on development of the assets, including bringing on to production more wells and expanding projects that management expects will drive even further revenue and bottom-line growth for the benefit of shareholders.

Jericho's primary focus in the past year has been on advancing a low-carbon energy transition with investments across the clean hydrogen value chain.

The Company maintains this focus; however, it is also dedicated to harvesting record cash flow from its long-held, traditional oil and gas assets, acquired during the depths of persistent low oil prices while continuing to invest behind strong secular tailwinds related to decarbonization of our energy systems.

Brian Williamson, CEO of Jericho, stated, "We remain dedicated to the pursuit of maximized shareholder value in all of our energy-focused ventures and investments, and we intend to take advantage of this once in a decade opportunity to monetize our long-held oil and gas portfolio in the near term via development opportunities."

"In addition, we are well positioned to benefit as the flow of capital continues to move from hydrocarbons into lower carbon strategies, due to our novel hydrogen technologies which will play a key role in advancing the rapidly growing hydrogen economy," he added.
