Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 6, 2017, Tellurian Production LLC (“Tellurian Production Company”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Tellurian Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a purchase and sale agreement (the “PSA”) with an unrelated third party (the “Seller”). Pursuant to and subject to the terms and conditions of the PSA, Tellurian Production Company has agreed to acquire from the Seller for $85,100,000 in cash (the “Base Purchase Price”), subject to specified adjustments, certain assets in northern Louisiana, including, but not limited to, oil and gas leases, mineral interests, wells, facilities and equipment (the “Asset Purchase”). The assets to be purchased include approximately 9,200 net developed and undeveloped acres and 19 producing operated wells with net current production of approximately four million cubic feet per day of natural gas. The Asset Purchase will be given economic effect as of August 1, 2017 (the “Effective Date”). As a result, at closing, the Base Purchase Price will be subject to upward or downward adjustments based on certain revenues and costs attributable to the purchased assets prior to and after the Effective Date. Certain of the assets to be acquired are subject to preferential rights to purchase held by third parties and the purchase price and properties to be acquired could be adjusted as a result of such rights. Pursuant to the PSA, on the business day following the execution of the PSA, Tellurian Production Company will be obligated to make a cash deposit in the amount of $8,510,000 (the “Deposit”), creditable against the amount required to be paid by it at the closing of the Asset Purchase. The Seller will be entitled to receive the Deposit if Tellurian Production Company fails to consummate the Asset Purchase under certain conditions.

The PSA contains various representations, warranties, covenants, and indemnification obligations of Tellurian Production Company and the Seller that are customary in transactions of this type. The closing of the Asset Purchase is subject to satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions, including, among others, (i) the accuracy of each party’s representations and warranties contained in the PSA and each party’s compliance with its covenants and agreements contained in the PSA in all material respects and (ii) the closing of the transactions contemplated by a purchase and sale agreement between an affiliate of the Seller and the current owner of the assets to be acquired pursuant to which, among other things, the Seller will acquire the assets subject to the PSA. In addition, the PSA contains certain customary termination rights for Tellurian Production Company and the Seller, including the right of either party to terminate in the event that the Asset Purchase has not been completed by December 15, 2017.

On September 6, 2017, the Company issued a press release and posted an investor presentation to its website relating to the Asset Purchase. A copy of the press release and the investor presentation are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively.
