CALGARY, Alberta, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jura Energy Corporation (“Jura”) today announced the filing on SEDAR of its consolidated annual audited financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, as well as its annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Operational Update

Jura also provides the following operational update. Further to Jura's press release and accompanying material change report, each dated November 29, 2021 (the “November 2021 Update”) and previously filed on SEDAR, which provided an operational update regarding the Zarghun South lease, Jura reports that its independent reserves evaluator McDaniel and Associates Consultants Limited (“McDaniel”), in its independent engineering evaluation of Jura’s oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas interests effective December 31, 2021, and dated April 20, 2022, has estimated Jura’s proved gross reserves at the Zarghun South lease at approximately 4.53 Bcf, and proved plus probable gross reserves at the Zarghun South lease at approximately 6.52 Bcf. McDaniel estimated the pre-tax net present value of the proved and proved plus probable reserves for the Zarghun South lease at approximately US$9.96 million and US$13.75 million respectively, using a discount rate of 10%.

This represents a further decrease of US$7.40 million and US$15.12 million in the estimated pre-tax net present value of proved reserves and proved plus probable reserves, respectively, at the Zarghun South lease from the last estimates disclosed in the November 2021 Update, using a discount rate of 10%.

This further represents an estimated US$40.03 million (62%) decrease in the estimated pre-tax net present value of Jura’s proved reserves and an estimated US$59.64 million (58%) decrease in the estimated pre-tax net present value of Jura’s proved plus probable reserves using a discount rate of 10%, in each case from the last published estimates as at December 31, 2020 (as published in Jura’s annual information form dated April 29, 2021).
