PanTerra Announces Update


CALGARY, March 7, 2013 /CNW/ - PanTerra Resource Corp. ("PanTerra" or the "Company") announces (along with its joint venture partner) that at a recent Crown land sale they have acquired an additional 7,360 acres of mineral rights (with mainly oil potential), adjacent to one of its core areas situated in central Alberta. This acquisition will allow the Company and its partner to move forward with additional drilling under a previously announced joint venture entered into early last year.

Further, the Company and its partner are in the process of constructing a six mile long gas gathering system at its Tomahawk property in central Alberta. The construction is in the planning stage and is anticipated to commence as soon as a license and right of ways have been acquired. The Company will get carried by its partner for the cost of construction. The pipeline will allow for increased oil production on one particular well where production is currently curtailed by gas oil ratios as well as to recover a significant amount of liquid rich solution gas from the balance of the producing wells. The additional gas and liquids revenue is anticipated to pay the project out in approximately one year or less despite current low gas prices. Pipeline construction will also improve the economics of additional wells that are planned to be drilled along the pipeline route as the solution gas from these wells will be tied in and marketed as the new wells are drilled.
