Aurora Oil & Gas Adds Sugarloaf Acreage for $95 Million

Second Sugarloaf Acquisition Proposed in Two Weeks

Aurora Oil & Gas is continuing its quest to add acreage in the Sugarloaf field in South Texas. Just two weeks ago, Aurora made a bid for Eureka Energy, but Eureka’s board wasn’t excited about the proposal. This week, Aurora announced a deal that adds 1,440 net acres to the company’s AMI in the Sugarloaf at a price tag of US$95 million. 

Marathon Oil operates the property. Aurora will have a 21.8% non-operated interest in the field when the deal closes. If the company is able to close the Eureka deal, they would add an additional 6.25% interest in the AMI.

    We have land in the Eagle Ford. Do you have a map that shows where sugar loaf is located?
