Nature of Operations
Penn Virginia Corporation (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, unless the context otherwise requires, “Penn Virginia,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) is an independent oil and gas company engaged in the onshore exploration, development and production of oil, natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) and natural gas. Our current operations consist primarily of drilling unconventional horizontal development wells and operating our producing wells in the Eagle Ford Shale (the “Eagle Ford”) in Gonzales, Lavaca, Fayette and DeWitt Counties in South Texas.
On March 21, 2019, we and Denbury Resources Inc. (“Denbury”) entered into a Termination Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”) under which the parties mutually agreed to terminate our previously announced merger agreement.
Subject to limited customary exceptions, the Termination Agreement also mutually releases the parties from any claims of liability to one another relating to the contemplated merger transaction. We incurred a total of $0.8 million of incremental costs associated with the merger transaction as well as the Termination Agreement during the six months ended June 30, 2019. These costs are included in the “General and administrative” (“G&A”) expenses caption in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.
