Terrex Energy Inc. Announces Approval of Strathmore EOR Project

CALGARY, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - Terrex Energy Inc. ("Terrex" or the "Company") (TSX-V - TER) announces ERCB approval of the Company's enhanced oil recovery "EOR" project at Strathmore.

On January 21, 2011 the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB), approved Terrex's plans for an Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) project in southern Alberta. The project consists of a chemical alkaline surfactant polymer (ASP) flood of the Lower Mannville B Pool of the Company's 100% working interest property in the Strathmore area of southern Alberta. Field rehabilitation activities, including the re-activation of well bores and pipelines, injector well conversions, and repairs and modifications to existing facilities necessary for the EOR project are mostly complete and additional required equipment has been ordered with delivery expected by mid 2011. Chemical injection is planned to commence in the fall.

The Strathmore pool has produced nearly 5 million barrels of light oil to date and the ASP flood is expected to result in significant additional recoveries of oil.  Based upon worldwide analogues, chemical floods increase recoveries, on average, by approximately 14-15% of total oil initially in place.

Terrex Energy Inc. is a Calgary-based junior oil company that specializes in the application of proven Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods to improve oil production from mature pools. Terrex targets underexploited and undercapitalized light-to-medium oil reservoirs in Western Canada. Terrex shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol 'TER' and on the Frankfurt Exchange under the symbol 3RT.

Neither the TSV Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
