SRC holds 79.72% of the outstanding common shares of Waseca. "We are pleased to partner with an experienced oil and gas exploration and development team that has had historical success at growing production," said Kevin Bambrough, SRC President & CEO. "We believe that with financing in place, especially at a time when financing is not available for most, the Waseca team is well positioned to explore and develop its existing land base and add to it through additional acquisitions.
