About Terra Resources, PLC Terra Resources acquired
substantial oil and gas concessions in the North Caspian Region -
Kalmykia, Russia.  The fields contain 64 wells, of which 62
were producing. The wells were capped and remained non-productive
because of previous low gas prices and technology that could not
handle the volume produced by high pressure wells. With new skilled
management and an experienced operator, Terra Resources plans to
open the wells again, and secure transportation via newly built gas
and oil pipeline. Of the 62 producing wells, 7 are listed as
potential “Super Giant” find based upon Subsalt discovery, outlined
in the new 51-101 Competent Person’s Report prepared by Chapman
Petroleum Engineering, Ltd. This report concludes with a “best
case” reserve estimate of the concession value at $7 to $11
, with an estimated $175 million development costs over the
life of the reserves.
