Paramount Resources Ltd. Announces the Sale of its Karr 6-18 Natural Gas Facility for Cash and Other Considerations of $470 million
Paramount Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with an affiliate of CSV Midstream Solutions Corp. (ʺCSV Midstreamʺ) for the sale of its Karr 6-18 natural gas facility and related midstream assets (the ʺ6-18 Facilityʺ) for total cash consideration of approximately $330 million plus a $140 million capital commitment to fund and complete the associated expansion of the facility (ʺD2ʺ), bringing the total transaction value to $470 million (the ʺMidstream Transactionʺ).

CSV Midstream will assume operatorship of the 6-18 Facility at closing and complete the construction of D2, which is currently in-progress and scheduled to be commissioned in the second half of 2020. Paramount will receive cash consideration of approximately $255 million in respect of the 6-18 Facility and approximately $75 million for the reimbursement of the Company's D2 project capital expenditures incurred to date. The 6-18 Facility includes 100 MMcf/d of sour raw natural gas compression and dehydration capacity and 15,000 Bbl/d of raw hydrocarbon liquids handling capacity. Once D2 is complete in 2020, the 6-18 Facility will have total raw gas handling capacity of 150 MMcf/d, including 70 MMcf/d of sour raw gas processing, and 30,000 Bbl/d of raw hydrocarbon liquids handling capacity.

As part of the Midstream Transaction, Paramount will enter into a midstream services agreement with CSV Midstream that includes a fee-for-service arrangement, a reliability guarantee and a take-or-pay volume commitment that ends 20 years following the completion of D2. The commitment has been structured to minimize unutilized demand charges as well as provide the Company with flexibility to further its Karr resource play development. Paramount estimates that operating costs at Karr will increase by approximately $13.5 million in 2019 as a result of the processing fee associated with the midstream services agreement. As Karr production ramps up towards 40,000 Boe/d, the Company estimates total unit operating costs at Karr (including processing fees) to be less than $10.00/Boe.

The Midstream Transaction facilitates Paramount's continued development of its large-scale Montney resource play at Karr and supports further production growth while maintaining the Company's financial strength. The proceeds from the Midstream Transaction will initially be used to reduce amounts drawn on the Company's $1.5 billion bank credit facility, which totaled $827.3 million as at March 31, 2019. The Company expects to record a gain on sale of approximately $160 million in respect of the Midstream Transaction.

The Midstream Transaction is expected to close in July 2019, subject to regulatory and customary closing conditions.
