Cardinal Releases 3rd Quarter Earnings Report


‘CEGX continues its transition to contract drilling and field development operations’

Abilene TX, December 8, 2015 — Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (“Cardinal Energy” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: CEGX) reports that “EBITDA” (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $92,390 compared to $454,330 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. “EBITDA” for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was a negative $93,061 compared to a negative $1,130,059 for the comparable period of 2014.

The Company reported an Operating Loss (operating revenues less operating expenses) for the third quarter of 2015 of $344,964 compared to operating income of $233,819 recorded in the third quarter of 2014. The Company’s Operating Loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 narrowed to $716,366 from an Operating Loss of $1,305,638 for the comparable period of 2014. The current periods’ results were hampered by delays in the receipt of capital required for the development of the Bradford leases which necessitated a cessation of operations during the third quarter of 2015. Capital funding resumed in mid-September and the Company has resumed drilling and development activities on the properties. Operating results during the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2015 also reflect lower crude oil prices and lower production volumes due to mechanical down-hole problems and legal issues at some of our recently developed properties in north-central Texas. These negative factors were partially offset by decreases in operating and production expenses which reflect the Company’s decision to shift its primary focus from the re-working of existing wells on its Texas oil and gas properties to providing contract drilling and field development services to third parties.

The three month and nine […]

Cardinal Energy Group (CEGX) Settles Dispute with Concho Oilfield Services, LLC


‘Concho to repair Cardinal’s prolific well on its Dawson-Conway Lease’

ABILENE, TX June 30, 2015 – Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CEGX) (“Company”) is pleased to announce that the attorneys for Concho Oilfield Services, LLC and Hudson Petroleum, Ltd., Co., have asked the court to dismiss their claims against the Company with prejudice. The motions filed with the Texas District Court for Shackelford County discharges Cardinal of its obligations pursuant to the March 10, 2015 Joint Settlement Agreement. The amicable settlement of the suit requires Concho Oilfield Services to repair CEGX’s No. 5B well on the Dawson-Conway 195B lease.

Timothy Crawford, CEO the Company comments, “This is good news on several fronts. First, the $100,000 payment cleans up our balance sheet by removing the obligation we accrued at December 31, 2014 in keeping with generally accepted accounting principles. Second, our payment and the motion filed with the court set the stage for Concho to begin the work necessary to repair the #5B well and get it producing again on our Dawson-Conway lease. That 195B #5B well was one of our best producers on the Dawson-Conway Lease, before Concho performed work on the well in February of 2014. Returning it to production is a critical first step in the Company’s efforts to fully monetize this property”.
