Denouncing terrorist attacks in West Africa, Security Council stresses need to address root causes

20 January 2017 – Strongly condemning all terrorist attacks in West Africa, particularly those carried out by Boko Haram militants in the Lake Chad Basin, the United Nations Security Council today stressed the need to combat terrorism in all its forms and to address the conditions conducive to its spread.

In a Presidential Statement read out in a formal meeting, the 15-member body reiterated its deep concern over the dire humanitarian situation caused by the activities of Boko Haram in the Lake Chad Basin region.

“In this regard,” the statement read, “the Security Council calls upon the international community to immediately support the provision of urgent humanitarian assistance for the people most affected by the crisis in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria, including by fulfilling the UN appeal for the Lake Chad Basin region.”

The Council also called on Governments in the region to facilitate access for humanitarian organizations, and to work with the UN and international partners to develop viable options for delivering aid and urged the Multinational Joint Task Force participating countries to further enhance regional military cooperation and coordination, deny safe haven to Boko Haram, and facilitate the restoration of civilian security and the rule of law in areas liberated from the militant group.

Further, welcoming subregional, regional and international efforts to mitigate the security, humanitarian and development impact of Boko Haram’s activities, the Security Council underlined that the UN Member States must ensure that any counter-terrorism measures are in compliance with all obligations under international law, particularly international human rights, humanitarian and refugee laws.

The statement also noted that the Council was encouraged by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) authority’s decision concerning the political situation in Gambia, as well as decisions by the African Union Peace and Security Council that the regional bloc would cease to recognize outgoing President Yahya Jammeh as the legitimate President of that country.

The Council went on to welcome recent positive political developments in several West African countries, in particular the holding of free and peaceful elections in Cabo Verde and Ghana, and the outcome of the political dialogue in Guinea, as well as welcomed steps taken to develop and institute political, institutional and constitutional reforms in Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia, Senegal and Sierra Leone.

Also in the statement, the Security Council expressed deep regret over bombing of the camp for displaced persons in Rann, north-eastern Nigeria, on 17 January, which had resulted in the deaths of numerous civilians, including internally displaced persons and humanitarian workers. The Council also urged the Government of Nigeria to investigate the incident swiftly.

Biomass Secure Power Inc. Tax Free Bond Status Approved

Abbotsford,, BC — (ReleaseWire) — 01/20/2017 –Biomass Secure Power Inc. (OTC: Pinksheets: BMSPF). Biomass Secure Power is pleased to advise shareholders that on January 19th, 2017 the Louisiana State Bond Commission approved the sale of $60 million tax exempt bonds by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Biomass Power Louisiana L.L.C. (BPL). The Company has engaged the Bank of America Merrill Lynch to sell the bonds on behalf of the company.

The proceeds of the bond issue will be used to build a new 240,000 tonne/yr, Bio-Coal production facility at the Port of Natchitoches Louisiana. A 20 year off-take agreement has been confirmed for 200,000 tonnes per year of Bio Coal, which is expected to generate annual sales in excess of $40 million per year. The total annual sales from phase one running at 240,000 tonnes/yr is planned to be in excess of $48 million per year.

Biomass Secure Power Inc. and River Basin Energy are in the process of merging the two companies prior to the closing date of the financing round.  Additional information about the merger will be released in the upcoming weeks.

The investment at Natchitoches is phase one of a three phase development program that will increase the plant production capacity to one million tonne per year. River Basin Energy has received a MOU to provide a further 500,000 tonne/year to 2,000,000 tonne/year of Bio-Coal. The MOU will be converted to a binding off-take agreement after trial samples from phase 1 operations have been received and evaluated by the buyer as being of the same quality or better than samples already made available from the RBE reactor.

Bio-coal is a torrefied product used to generate heat and electrical power for residential and industrial purposes. Bio-coal is a sustainable alternate to coal in most circumstances. Bio-Coal has a commercial advantage over whitewood pellets as the energy cost is about the same and the CAPEX requirements to convert an existing plant to bio-coal is significantly lower.

About the Company
Biomass Secure Power Inc. is incorporated in the Province of British Columbia. On May 4, 2016 the Company signed a Memorandum of Understanding with River Basin Energy to merge the companies and build a bio-coal plant at the Port of Natchitoches, Louisiana.  Public filings and financial information for Biomass Secure Power Inc. can be found at

Baytex Announces Closing of Peace River Acquisition

CALGARY, ALBERTA — (Marketwired) — 01/20/17 — Baytex Energy Corp. (“Baytex”) (TSX: BTE)(NYSE: BTE) announces the closing of its previously announced acquisition of heavy oil assets located in the Peace River area of northern Alberta. Cash consideration for the acquisition of $65 million (net of adjustments) was funded by drawing on Baytex’s revolving credit facilities.

The assets are located immediately adjacent to our existing Peace River lands, add approximately 3,000 boe/d of production and more than double our land base in the area. The acquisition will drive efficiencies and synergies in our operations and will significantly enhance our inventory of drilling locations for future growth. We see the potential to significantly increase crude oil production on the acquired lands over the next two years.

Advisory Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

In the interest of providing Baytex’s shareholders and potential investors with information regarding Baytex, including management’s assessment of Baytex’s future plans and operations, certain statements in this press release are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation (collectively, “forward-looking statements”). In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “forecast”, “intend”, “may”, “objective”, “ongoing”, “outlook”, “potential”, “project”, “plan”, “should”, “target”, “would”, “will” or similar words suggesting future outcomes, events or performance. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date thereof and are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

Specifically, this press release contains forward-looking statements relating to but not limited to: our business plan, strategies and objectives; and the benefits to be obtained from the Acquisition, including operational efficiencies and synergies, future production growth and development potential.

These forward-looking statements are based on certain key assumptions regarding, among other things: the characteristics of the acquired assets and the successful integration of these assets into Baytex’s operations, petroleum and natural gas prices and differentials between light, medium and heavy oil prices; well production rates and reserve volumes; our ability to add production and reserves through our exploration and development activities; capital expenditure levels; our ability to borrow under our credit agreements; the receipt, in a timely manner, of regulatory and other required approvals for our operating activities; the availability and cost of labour and other industry services; interest and foreign exchange rates; the continuance of existing and, in certain circumstances, proposed tax and royalty regimes; our ability to develop our crude oil and natural gas properties in the manner currently contemplated; and current industry conditions, laws and regulations continuing in effect (or, where changes are proposed, such changes being adopted as anticipated). Readers are cautioned that such assumptions, although considered reasonable by Baytex at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect.

Actual results achieved will vary from the information provided herein as a result of numerous known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors. Such factors include, but are not limited to: the volatility of oil and natural gas prices; further declines or an extended period of the currently low oil and natural gas prices; failure to comply with the covenants in our debt agreements; that our credit facilities may not provide sufficient liquidity or may not be renewed; uncertainties in the capital markets that may restrict or increase our cost of capital or borrowing; risks associated with a third-party operating our Eagle Ford properties; changes in government regulations that affect the oil and gas industry; changes in environmental, health and safety regulations; restrictions or costs imposed by climate change initiatives; variations in interest rates and foreign exchange rates; risks associated with our hedging activities; the cost of developing and operating our assets; risks related to the accessibility, availability, proximity and capacity of gathering, processing and pipeline systems; depletion of our reserves; risks associated with the exploitation of our properties and our ability to acquire reserves; changes in income tax or other laws or government incentive programs; uncertainties associated with estimating petroleum and natural gas reserves; our inability to fully insure against all risks; risks of counterparty default; risks associated with acquiring, developing and exploring for oil and natural gas and other aspects of our operations; risks associated with large projects; risks related to our thermal heavy oil projects; risks associated with the ownership of our securities, including changes in market-based factors and the discretionary nature of dividend payments; risks for United States and other non-resident shareholders, including the ability to enforce civil remedies, differing practices for reporting reserves and production, additional taxation applicable to non-residents and foreign exchange risk; failure to complete or realize the anticipated benefits of the Acquisition and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. These and additional risk factors are discussed in our Annual Information Form, Annual Report on Form 40-F and Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2015, as filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The above summary of assumptions and risks related to forward-looking statements has been provided in order to provide shareholders and potential investors with a more complete perspective on Baytex’s current and future operations and such information may not be appropriate for other purposes.

There is no representation by Baytex that actual results achieved will be the same in whole or in part as those referenced in the forward-looking statements and Baytex does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities law.

All amounts in this press release are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.

Advisory Regarding Oil and Gas Information

Where applicable, oil equivalent amounts have been calculated using a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil. The use of boe amounts may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Baytex Energy Corp.

Baytex Energy Corp. is an oil and gas corporation based in Calgary, Alberta. The company is engaged in the acquisition, development and production of crude oil and natural gas in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and in the Eagle Ford in the United States. Approximately 78% of Baytex’s production is weighted toward crude oil and natural gas liquids. Baytex’s common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol BTE.

HFF Closes $108 Million Sale of the James Center Buildings in Richmond, Virginia

CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has closed the $108 million sale of the James Center, three iconic office towers totaling approximately one million square feet in the Richmond, Virginia, CBD.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, LNR Property, a subsidiary of Starwood Property Trust, Inc., and procured the buyer, Riverstone Properties. The property was sold free and clear of existing debt.

The James Center comprises three iconic office towers – the 21-story One James Center, the 22-story Two James Center and the 14-story Three James Center – that are steeped in American history, and each building was designed to stand out in sharp contrast to the neighboring buildings. Developed in 1985, the James Center’s site functioned once as the Great Turning Basin of the James River. Original stones from the basin were used to construct seating in The Plaza, an outdoor area that welcomes visitors to the James Center and hosts activities, concerts and the Grand Illumination, which is part of downtown Richmond’s holiday lighting tradition. The James Center features Class A amenities, ample on-site parking, two on-site restaurants and, through its connection to the nearby Omni Hotel, access to four additional restaurants.

Situated on 3.388 acres at 901, 1021 and 1051 East Carey Street, the James Center is located in downtown Richmond’s River District and along the James River. The property is proximate to more than 100 restaurants, multiple hotels and a variety of retail and entertainment outlets, including the James River Park System, Short Pump Mall, Richmond Coliseum and Stone Brewery. Additionally, Amtrak’s Main Street Station, which runs to Norfolk, Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston, is within walking distance of the property.

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing directors Ryan Clutter and Dek Potts, director Scot Humphrey and associate director Christopher Lingerfelt.

“The James Center was one of the most competitively pursued assets we have marketed this year, and it received significant interest from a deep pool of institutional and private capital,” Lingerfelt said. “The three office towers are staples of the Richmond skyline and offer a tremendous opportunity to acquire substantial critical mass in the Richmond CBD.”

Cloud Peak Energy Mine Receives Wildlife Stewardship Award for Eagle Protection from Wyoming Game and Fish Department

GILLETTE, Wyo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cloud Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE:CLD), one of the largest U.S. coal producers and the only pure-play Powder River Basin (“PRB”) coal company, today announced its Antelope Mine received the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Industry Reclamation Wildlife Stewardship Award. The mine, located in Northeastern Wyoming, was recognized for its successful efforts to promote population numbers of Golden Eagles and other raptors through habitat enhancement and use of effective protection measures, including rescuing a young eaglet that was later released at the mine following rehabilitation.

“Environmental safeguards and restoration at Antelope Mine are a key priority for us,” said Steve Cowan, General Manager of the Antelope Mine. “The Powder River Basin provides natural habitat for a wide variety of birds and animals. Working with a broad team across the company and outside experts, we’ve been able to mitigate potential impacts while mining activity proceeds. We are demonstrating the ability to produce coal that provides safe, affordable and reliable electricity while at the same time being responsible stewards of the environment.”

Antelope Mine implemented a unique and intensive monitoring program for the Golden Eagle territories located within the mine permit area. Since 2011, the mine has worked closely with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Ecological Service Office and Migratory Bird Permit Office to ensure that mine operations do not negatively impact local Golden Eagle pairs.

Antelope Mine’s intensive monitoring program, coupled with rapid operational adjustments, allows the mine to operate in proximity to eagle pairs, and at the same time fosters successful nesting of the area’s Golden Eagle pairs. In the spring of 2015, as a result of Antelope Mine’s monitoring program, it was found that a Golden Eagle nest, previously near the top of the highwall, had fallen during an extreme storm. “Tumbler,” the young eaglet, had fallen to the bottom of the highwall. With the help of the Antelope Mine personnel and the visiting biologist, Tumbler was rescued and temporarily relocated to the Ironside Bird Rescue facility in Cody, Wyoming. A transitory home was created where he was trained to hunt for himself, provided visual images of other Golden Eagles, and received only limited human contact to help keep him wild.

After a short stay at the bird rescue facility, the Antelope Mine readily agreed to return Tumbler to his original nesting area, as this would provide the best habitat for his long-term survival. In August 2015, Tumbler and his companion from the bird rescue facility, Hobbit, were released into their new habitat on land adjacent to the mine.

Both young eagles have been observed in the vicinity of the mine, providing confidence that they have returned safely to the wild. The Antelope Mine is an ideal home for eagles and other raptors due to its high-quality reclamation, ongoing wildlife studies, protection plans and a demonstrated commitment to care for wildlife and the land.

In addition to this award, Antelope Mine has been honored with other recognitions including the nation’s most prestigious reclamation award, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement’s Excellence in Surface Coal Mining Reclamation Award twice, once in 2010 and again in 2014.
