Subsequent Events [Abstract]  



Due to a combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and related pressures on the global supply-demand balance for crude oil and related products, commodity prices have significantly declined in recent months, and oil and gas operators have reduced exploration budgets and activity. The Company has evaluated the effect of these factors on its business and the Company has determined that these factors will most likely cause a delay in the Company’s 2020 drilling program. The Company continues to monitor the economic environment and evaluate the impact on the business.


On April 16, 2020, GulfSlope Energy, Inc. (the “Company“) entered into a promissory note (the “Note“) evidencing an unsecured $100,300 loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP Loan“). The Paycheck Protection Program was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act“) and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The PPP Loan is being made through Zions Bancorporation, N.A. dba Amegy Bank (the “Lender“). The PPP Loan is scheduled to mature on April 16, 2022 and has a 1.00% interest rate. No payments are due on the PPP Loan until November 16, 2020, although interest will continue to accrue during the deferment period. Beginning November 16, 2020, the Company will pay 18 equal monthly installments of principal and interest in the amount necessary to fully amortize the PPP Loan through the maturity date. Under the terms of the CARES Act, all or a portion of the PPP Loan may be forgiven. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs and mortgage interest, rent or utility costs. No assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.


The Company completed the extension of the Bridge Financing notes to April 30, 2021. In consideration for the extension of the notes, the Company extended the term of the related warrants until April 30, 2021.


Additional insurance proceeds of approximately $0.383 million were received in May and June 2020 for 100% working interest related to the Tau well incident (see Note 3). GulfSlope’s share of this amount was approximately $0.1 million.


In June 2020, the Company extended the maturity dates of Convertible Debenture Tranche 1 with a maturity date of June 21, 2020 and Convertible Debenture Tranche 2 with a maturity date of August 7, 2020 to August 21, 2020 in exchange for the payment of $50,000.
