Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
On March 26, 2019, the Company issued a Press Release discussing a Memorandum of Understanding executed on March 14, 2019.
The Company has entered into this proposed binding memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) for the funding of its planned Concho/Progresso Pipeline and Natural Gas Storage facility connecting Texas to Mexico’s national pipeline grid, SISTRANGAS (the “Project”).
The proposed binding MOU is with Organization Mondiale De development, a company registered in France (“OMD”). It is the Company’s belief that the MOU will not become binding until OMD’s “good will deposit” of $15,000,000 is paid to the Company, on or before April 14, 2019. To date, the good will deposit has not been paid or received by the Company.
The MOU sets out the terms of the proposed funding and participation in the Project. Under the MOU, Mirage proposes to sell 100% of its participation interest in the “Project” to OMD in exchange for its promise to fund the Project’s estimated $1,200,000,000 cost. OMD will offer Mirage a Five (5.0%) carried equity participation interest which will be characterized as Mirage’s put option interest in the Project. At the time, Mirage would exercise this put option, OMD would pay Mirage the sum of $16,000,000. The proposed Project funding would include eight tranches of $150,000,000 USD each payable at 30-day intervals commencing on, or about April 15, 2019. The closing of the proposed transaction is subject to the execution of definitive documents. In the event the transaction fails to close due to Mirage’s fault, Mirage will be required to refund the good will deposit. In the event the transaction fails to close due to OMD, Mirage will be entitled keep a portion of the deposit, not to exceed $10,000,000.
The project is designed to bring natural gas from the Banquete/Agua Dulce area to Station 19 and Los Ramones interconnection points on SISTRANGAS in Mexico coupled with access to the planned Brazil Field Natural Gas Storage Facility.
Mirage, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, continues with the Project’s development including, but not limited to, the proposed filing of permits on, or about the April 1, 2019 with a view toward receiving required United States and Mexico permits and authorizations in 3Q 2019. The company has completed the necessary engineering and design of the pipeline and the natural gas storage field. The alignment for pipeline has also been substantially completed and are in the process of securing rights of way.
