Stratic provides update on Turkey production shutdown

    CALGARY and LONDON, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Stratic Energy Corporation (TSX
Venture: 'SE', AIM 'SE.') ("Stratic" or the "Company") has been informed by
the operator of its South Akcakoca operations that production from the
company's Black Sea operations has been shut in following an incident in which
a trawler's net became entangled with the pipeline spur from the Akkaya field
near its connection point to the main gas export line.
    The incident occurred at approximately 11:40pm local time on Friday,
November 23, triggering an emergency shut down (ESD) of the export line, since
which time all production from Akkaya and East Ayazli has been shut in while
the operator assesses the extent of the damage to the pipeline. Prior to the
shutdown the two fields were producing approximately 15 mmscfd of gas (Stratic
share: 1.8 mmscfd).
    A further update will be given once a full assessment of the incident has
been completed.
    The South Akcakoca co-venturers are: TPAO (State Oil Company and
operator, 51%), Toreador Resources Corporation (36.75%) and Stratic Energy
Corporation (12.25%).
