Alpha Energy, Inc. (OTC.PK - APHE) ("Alpha") announced all hurdles are cleared prior to it pursuing an uplisting to a major exchange.

On November 20, 2020, Alpha Energy submitted its 10Q for the third quarter of 2020.  With the filing of our first and second quarter Qs earlier this month, this brings the company back into fully-reporting status.  The delay in the process was brought about when our previous auditor came under censure by the SEC for issues unrelated to Alpha (see press release 7/22/20).  This necessitated that we find a new auditor and, as a precautionary measure, re-do our audits for 2018 and 2019.

In the face of headwinds brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian-Saudi Arabian price war, Alpha brought on Mr. Jay Leaver as president in June 2020.  Mr. Leaver is a geologist and explorationist with over thirty years' experience in the petroleum industry.  The management team at Alpha secured new contracts over the development projects in Oklahoma evaluated earlier in 2019 and extended its contracts over its exploration projects in Texas and New Mexico.  Recognizing the changed market conditions, the new contracts (previously announced in press releases on 7/15/20, 7/20/20, and 9/25/20) represent a substantial discount to the amounts originally agreed to under the outdated and lapsed contracts.  Alpha also earlier received an independent engineering report on the three projects, certified under GAAP standards, in January of this year.  Pricing was $55.85/bbl for oil and $2.58/mcf for gas, so not reflective of current pricing but within certain analyst's expectations for 2021.  Net reserves for all three development projects are 2.8 million barrels of oil and 8.8 bcf of gas.  Management believes that the reserve potential in some of these projects is much higher than can be considered proved or probable under GAAP standards.  Additionally, the development projects are each capable of producing oil and gas at low operating costs, allowing Alpha to be profitable even at significantly lower oil prices than in today's market.  This will allow Alpha the flexibility to drill if pricing permits or stand pat if market conditions so dictate.

Alpha is therefore now poised to begin its next phase of operations, with three development and two exploration projects under contract, including an 87.5% ownership of assets in Rogers County, Oklahoma that are already assigned to Alpha (press release 7/15/20).  Alpha has an independent engineering report on the three development projects. The company holds no reserve lending debt and is preparing to apply for uplisting to a major exchange (NYSE American) via a $15 million secondary offering.  Under the terms of the development project contracts and the Use of Proceeds stipulated in the secondary offering, Alpha will be acquiring 4.2 million BOE in reserves for $0.56 per BOE.

John Lepin, CFO of Alpha Energy, reflected on the bright future: "It has been tough sledding getting to this point, but with persistence and low overhead and the support of our investors we anticipate that 2021 will be a banner year for Alpha."

Alpha Energy, Inc. is a Houston, Texas based, independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of crude oil and natural gas. Additional information is available on the Company's website at .

Chris Wood: Hard Path Ahead for US Economy, Energy Sector is Defensive

Last week’s interest rate hike marked the US Federal Reserve's fifth increase since January. Now sitting at the 3 to 3.25 percent level, the federal funds rate is likely to rise further before the year is over.

Walking the fine line between fighting inflation and stimulating the economy in a post-pandemic environment has been a challenge for the Fed. And according to Chris Wood of Jefferies Hong Kong, it's going to get much more difficult in the months ahead.

“(To meet its inflation target), the Fed will soon have to face a real choice of how much it is willing to crush growth and incur the related collateral damage in an economy which has become ever more financialized after more than two decades of excessively easy monetary policy,” said Wood during his keynote address at the Gold Forum Americas.
