    CALGARY, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - Anterra Energy Inc. ("Anterra" or the "Company")
today announced that its Devonian Swan Hills new pool discovery well at LSD
09-19-62-11W5M in Judy Creek has been completed and is being placed on
production. Anterra holds a 100% working interest before payout and a 60%
working interest after payout in the well. Following completion, the final
swab rate for the well was 3 m3 of fluid per hour with an average oil cut of
99% (450 bopd). The Company is placing the 2,700 meter well on production at a
restricted rate of 300 barrels of oil per day and is trucking the oil to an
Anterra pipeline connected processing facility at Sakwatamau. Anterra is also
licensing a second well in the same pool which the Company expects to drill
and complete prior to year end 2007.
    "We have invested over $3 million on land, 3-D seismic and drilling and
completion at Judy Creek this year and are pleased our efforts in this area
have been so successful," said Owen Pinnell, Chairman and CEO of Anterra.
"Subject to board approval, management will be proposing an extensive
exploration and development plan for the Judy Creek area in 2008. The plan
will include further 3-D seismic, up to five Swan Hills development wells, two
Swan Hills exploration wells and the construction of a pipeline connected
processing facility. This is a significant discovery and we anticipate that
Judy Creek will quickly become our primary producing asset."
