Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – March 14, 2018) – DXI Energy Inc. (TSX: DXI) (OTCQB: DXIEF) (“DXI” or the “Company”), an upstream oil and gas exploration and production company operating in Colorado’s Piceance Basin and the Peace River Arch region in British Columbia, today announced its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2017.

2017 Key Financial and Operating Highlights are:

  1. Reduced financing expenses by 34% to $1,039,000 from $1,579,000 for the comparative year ended December 31, 2016 as a result of refinancing the Company’s loans from related parties;
  2. Raised gross proceeds of $3,857,000 in equity, of which $2,471,000 is cash, under challenging market conditions, allowing the Company to support the ongoing development of its Drake/Woodrush properties. Of the non-cash portion of equity, $1,078,000 represented the exchange of related party debt for the Company’s shares while $308,000 represented the exchange of other debt amounts held by arm’s length parties for the Company’s shares; and
  3. Executed a “Funding and Participation Agreement” on December 22, 2017 with a private U.S. based investment firm to underwrite approximately 67% of the capital costs of the initial well and 50% of the capital costs of subsequent wells, if any, at the Company’s Woodrush oil exploration program scheduled to commence in the 1st quarter of 2018. The private investment firm will earn a 15% gross overriding royalty on a well-by-well basis.

 Notes:

(1)    Increase for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017 was due to an increase in realized oil prices. This was partially offset by the reduction in oil production at Woodrush.
(2) Increase for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017 was due to a reduction in natural gas production resulting from the deliberate shut-in of certain Woodrush production in response to historical low Station 2 gas prices. This was partially offset by the increase in realized natural gas prices.
