Derek Secures Development Funding For Lak Ranch

 Today the Company is pleased to announce a modification to its existing Loan Agreement with the Haegelin Family Trust. This loan has been modified by:
  • increasing the principal debt amount to US$2.5 million from US1.3 million
  • extend the repayment term from January 30, 2011 to August 10, 2011 and,
  • changes the convertibility feature of the note payable to permit conversion of any or all principal and interest owing at $0.06 per unit, with each unit consisting of one share and one warrant. Each warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.10 for a term of two years from the date of conversion.

This effectively provides the Company with US$1.2 million of new capital to allow the Company to develop its LAK Ranch project by completing the installation, permitting and use of the 50 Million BTU generator. This development will permit the Company, for the first time, to adequately steam the reservoir in both the recently completed12 well program area and the original 1-P horizontal well area. Management forecasts that after six months of such steaming these existing wells should be producing 170 B/D oil. Management budgets that at a $60 WTI oil price, the Company will break even on a project cash flow basis at 150 B/D oil.


Mr. Barry C.J. Ehrl,
President and C.E.O.
