Operations

 

Pine Mills

As previously reported, production facility improvement work at the Pine Mills field (where the Company owns 100% WI) which were planned to enhance both the handling capacity and up-time along with a five well workover program has commenced. Workovers on the first two production wells are complete and now work on the water handling and disposal system facility is underway.  This facility work is anticipated to take several weeks and once complete will increase the treating capacity of the facility enabling the existing pumping units to increase their flow rates.  It is anticipated that the increased fluid rates will result in increased oil production across the field. After the disposal work is finished the three additional well workovers will be completed.

 

Permian Basin

Technical work on the results of the Grant East #1 well continues.   Integrating the Grant East #1 results into a larger regional context has uncovered attractive opportunities in other parts of the lease that were not initially anticipated.  Planning and permitting for a second well within the lease are ongoing and it is now expected that one of these new opportunities will be drilled prior to year-end.

 

Matt Lofgran, Nostra Terra's Chief Executive Officer, said:

 

"Nostra Terra achieved the highest quarterly revenue in Company history, generating a 33% increase in revenue when compared to the previous quarter through a combination of increased production and increased commodity prices. As a result, we're in a very strong position, with a profitable portfolio of existing opportunities, such as the Fouke 2, where our investment reached payback in less than 3 months, that can be developed from internal resources. We also have the ability to fund future growth while retiring past debt obligations. This allows us to pursue a mix of exciting opportunities, including development and exploration, to expand our portfolio.  It's our expectation that the results of the workover and facility improvement activity at Pine Mills will deliver a further increase in production from our existing wells while providing the treating capacity necessary for the new opportunities we are developing resulting from the Fouke area successes.  

 

We've delivered two sequential quarters of Company revenue increases, while reducing leverage and running and active drilling campaign. It's been an excellent period for the Company, and I am very optimistic about the future.  I look forward to reporting on the results of our current activities in a future release."
