 DENVER, July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Gas Resources Inc. (NYSE: WGR) announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase the Black Lake gas processing plant and related production from Nerco Oil and Gas Inc. for approximately $156 million. Closing is expected to occur on Sept. 1, 1993 with an effective date of January 1, 1993 and is expected to be funded from new debt issues and existing credit facilities. The purchase is subject to customary approvals required by the Hart Scott Rodino Act.
 The acquisition includes a 68.9 percent working interest in Black Lake, which is comprised of a production unit in the Black Lake field in Louisiana, a 180 MMCF per day gas processing plant and a 500 MBBL salt dome storage facility. The purchase price also includes a 50 percent interest in the 240-mile Black Lake liquids pipeline which extends from Cotton Valley, La. to Mont Belvieu, Texas.
 The net proved reserves to Nerco's interest in the Black Lake production unit as of Jan. 1, 1993 were approximately 94 BCF of gas, 305 MBBL of oil and 150 MMGAL of NGLs. Average daily net sales production is approximately 63 MMCF of gas, 300 BBL of oil and 100 MGAL of NGLs.
 The Black Lake field is located near several intra- and interstate natural gas pipelines, providing access to most major markets and to Western's new Katy gas storage facility.
 Western owns and operates natural gas gathering and processing facilities and markets and transports natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs). The company is actively pursuing new investment opportunities through both acquisitions and new construction to expand its area of operations and related markets toward its goal of increasing stockholder value.
