Great Western Oil & Gas Buys Additional Wells And Leasehold Acreage In Wattenberg Field

Company is actively pursuing acquisitions during period of uncertainty in the industry

Denver January 28, 2015: Great Western Oil & Gas Company, an affiliate of The Broe Group with active operations in the Denver-Julesburg Basin in Colorado, has purchased 14 producing wells and 816 net leasehold acres in the Wattenberg Field from an undisclosed seller. The purchase closed January 16. The price was not disclosed.

The tracts are adjacent to existing Great Western Oil & Gas land in Weld County and bolster the company’s position among the top 10 oil & gas producers in Colorado, where the company continues to look for additional acquisitions of wells, acreage and non-consenting working interests.

“This acquisition is a great example of our strategy to expand our holdings in the Wattenberg Field, particularly during the current period of variability in the industry, and achieve economies of scale throughout our operations in Northern Colorado. We continue to search for additional suitable wells and leasehold acreage located near our current operating locations,” said Rich Frommer, President and CEO of Great Western Oil & Gas.
