MCW Energy Group's Initial Oil Sands Extraction Plant Now Poised for Production; Chairman Announces Phase #2 Expansion Plan Including 5,000 Barrel/Day (Est.) Plant in Ashpalt Ridge, Utah
TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 10/09/14 -- MCW Energy Group Limited ("MCW") (TSX VENTURE: MCW) (OTCQX: MCWEF), a Canadian holding company involved in fuel distribution and the creation of oil sands extraction technology today disclosed further details on its Phase #2 Expansion Plan for further development and increased oil sands extraction capacities in Asphalt Ridge, Utah.
MCW's Chairman Aleksandr Blyumkin stated today, "Last week, we successfully demonstrated our earth-friendly technology with our initial extraction plant in Asphalt Ridge, Utah for our shareholders, Utah state officials and the media. We're now prepared to move into the second phase of our expansion plans, which includes a larger capacity extraction plant, the finalization of the Temple Mountain Energy property acquisition and additional oil sands leases." Last week's in-operation plant demonstration included an informative plant tour of MCW's proprietary extraction technology, samples of oil and clean sands produced and an information package featuring MCW's focus on "Responsible Resource Development."
MCW's ramp-up program includes the design, fabrication and assembly of a 5,000 bbl/day extraction plant (estimated capacity) on Temple Mountain Energy's nearby property (Costs approximately USD $ 80mm.), the completion of the Temple Mountain lease acquisition with 139,541 STB, estimated total bitumen initially in place as of August 31st, 2014. (Cost USD $ 9mm, plus 10mm MCW shares.), and the proposed acquisition of further oil sands leases in the immediate area. (Cost approximately USD $ 15mm.) MCW is currently soliciting funding for Phase #2 of its expansion project, with a combination of structured finance transactions for the extraction plant costs and a preferred convertible debt for lease purchases.
In order to augment its revenue stream possibilities, MCW is now prepared to provide licensing and joint venture opportunities to other global entities, with a focus on countries with considerable oil sands resources, as yet undeveloped. These revenue streams will take the shape of licensing fees and production-based royalties. MCW has already gleaned attention from several major companies based in Alberta, Canada and Asia. In several cases, oil sands feedstock samples provided were successfully tested.
