    CALGARY, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - Anterra Energy Inc. ("Anterra" or the "Company")
today announced that it will case its LSD 9-19-62-11W5M exploration well at
Judy Creek and is assessing its completion alternatives following indications
of hydrocarbons in several zones, including the Swan Hills Devonian reef
formation, which was the primary target of the well. Anterra holds a 100%
working interest before payout and a 60% working interest after payout in the
    The well encountered 3 meters of oil saturated interval in the Devonian
Swan Hills reef formation and interpretation of 3-D seismic and well log data
from this well and from adjoining wells indicate that this appears to be a new
pool discovery. Several additional wells will be needed to fully exploit the
resource and Anterra holds a greater than 90% working interest in 5,000 acres
over the prospect. The well also encountered hydrocarbons in two shallower
horizons which are presently being drill stem tested.
    "We are encouraged by the results of this well", said Owen Pinnell,
Chairman and CEO of Anterra. "Although further drilling and testing will be
needed to quantify the scale of this discovery, the investment we have made in
this project on 3-D seismic, land and drilling provide us with sufficient data
to develop an exploitation plan, which will include the drilling of several
development wells." Pinnell added: "We caution shareholders to await further
announcements on the well which will be forthcoming following production
testing of the primary zone, before reaching conclusions about the magnitude
of this discovery and the impact it may have on the Company."
