Development Plan for Longanesi Field Submitted

    CALGARY and LONDON, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Stratic Energy Corporation (TSX
Venture: 'SE', AIM 'SE.') ("Stratic" or the "Company") announces that the
Development Plan for the Longanesi Field has been agreed with Eni and
submitted by the two partners to the Italian authorities for approval. The
partners have agreed that Eni will operate the development. Submission of this
plan initiates the start of the formal regulatory process, which will take at
least 12 months and is expected to result in the award of two production
concessions (San Potito and Bagnacavallo), and the necessary consents to
permit construction and drilling operations to commence within those
concessions in 2010. The Development Plan includes the drilling of three new
wells within the field, the completion of the two existing wells as producers,
the building of a pipeline gathering system and processing plant and
connection to the national gas grid. First gas is targeted for 2011.
    Mark Bilsland, Chief Operating Officer, commented: "This is an important
milestone in the development of the Longanesi field. We look forward to
working with Eni to obtain the necessary consents to allow construction and
drilling activity to commence".
