Petroshare Corp. Announces Closing of Lease Acquisition, $5.0 Million Revolving Line of Credit and Participation Agreement

CENTENNIAL, CO--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - PetroShare Corp. (the "Company") announced today that under its strategic land and leasing services agreement with Kingdom Resources, LLC ("Kingdom"), it closed on the previously announced assignment of approximately 333 net acres, as revised, covering all depths in parts of Township 1 South, Range 67 West, Adams County, Colorado. The acreage is located in the southern end of the Greater Wattenberg oil and gas field. The Company expects that this initial lease position represents the first of additional acreage acquisitions to be generated under the Company's agreement with Kingdom.

Additionally, on May 13, 2015, the Company entered into a participation agreement and a $5.0 million revolving line of credit facility agreement with an industry partner based out of Dallas, TX. It is anticipated that the line of credit will allow PetroShare to step up its lease acquisition program and accelerate drilling operations.

The participation agreement gives the Company's industry partner the right to participate in up to 50% of leases, drilling and acquisitions within the Kingdom area of mutual interest ("AMI"). The AMI consists of an area containing all of Township 1 South, 67 West, Adams County, Colorado.

Stephen J. Foley, CEO of PetroShare, noted, "We are extremely pleased to enter into this joint venture with a seasoned industry partner. We expect this to be the first step in a multi-well drilling program that PetroShare will undertake in the Wattenberg Field. This initial lease position gives us a solid, focused foundation to rapidly expand our area operations, taking advantage of current commodity prices as an entry point in a great resource play."
