UPDATE 1-Nimin Energy to dissolve, sells Wyoming assets
* Sells Wyoming asset to BreitBurn Partners for about $98 mln
* Looking for buyers for San Joaquin asset in California
April 25 (Reuters) - Oil and gas producer NiMin Energy Corp said it would dissolve itself and sell its assets and use the proceeds to clear its debts, ending a four-month-old strategic review process that started in November.
NiMin said it would sell its assets in Wyoming's Big Horn Basin to BreitBurn Energy Partners LP for about $98 million.
BreitBurn expects the deal to immediately add to its distributable cash flow.
The assets sold to BreitBurn produced about 600 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) in March and are estimated to hold proved reserves of about 5.9 million barrels oil equivalent.
NiMin is currently seeking a buyer for its oil and natural gas assets in the San Joaquin Basin in California.
The company said debt and potential liabilities of the company were currently estimated at about $55.6 million to $56.15 million.
NiMin began evaluating its options in November as it believed that its assets were undervalued compared with its share price at the time.
