Board of Directors (Appointments and Changes)
Calgary (euro adhoc) - Terrex Energy Inc. ("Terrex" or the "Company") (TSX-V:
TER) is pleased to announce the strengthening of its management and technical
teams through the addition of Mr. Tony Berthelet, P. Eng., and Mr. Marten
Perdue, P. Eng. and provide a brief update on its enhanced oil recovery (EOR)
projects at Strathmore and Two Creek in Alberta.
Mr. Berthelet is joining Terrex in the position of Vice-President, Operations
and Production. He is a professional engineer with 14 years of production and
operation engineering experience with expertise in the delivery of water floods
and EOR projects in Canada and internationally. He was most recently Business
Unit Manager - Oil and EOR for an intermediate independent oil and gas company
where he led a team of 60 professionals producing 28,000 barrels of oil
equivalent. Tony has had increasing levels of responsibilities as an engineer at
several previous companies. Tony is a registered Professional Engineer with
APEGGA and a registered Project Management Professional (PMP) with the Project
Management Institute (PMI). He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in
1998 with a B.Sc. in Geological Engineering.
In conjunction with this announcement, and in accordance with the company's
previously approved stock option plan, the board of directors granted 1.2
million options to Mr. Berthelet to purchase common shares in the capital of the
company. The options each have an exercise price of 13 cents per share, are
exercisable for a period of five years and vest in one-third increments with
one-third vesting immediately and the remainder on the first and second
anniversaries from the date of grant. This grant of options is subject to
acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Mr. Perdue has accepted the position of Sr. Operations Manager with
responsibility for the construction and commissioning of the Company ASP
facilities at Strathmore. Marten is a professional engineer with over 25 years
of experience with expertise in facilities, operations and project management.
Marten has worked for several major and junior oil and gas companies and has
been responsible for the planning, execution and start-up of multiple
multi-million dollar development and infra-structure projects. He graduated from
the University of Alberta in 1985 with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering.
The Strathmore Chemical EOR facilities and water treatment plant builds are
complete; and will be moved in place when site readiness is finished. We expect
to begin this construction at the end of November 2011 with chemical injection
and the restart of the water flood anticipated to begin early in 2012.
At Two Creek, technical evaluations of the A and B Pools are underway to design
the optimal EOR development plans. Two horizontal in-fill drill sites for wells
are being readied to better develop the A Pool and add additional production
prior to implementing the EOR programs.
The Strathmore and Two Creek properties are characterized by large original
oil-in-place reservoirs of about 20 million barrels each according to the ERCB,
with relatively low recoveries to date, of approximately 25 per cent and 12
percent respectively. We believe that optimization and enhanced oil recovery
programs, consistent with our overall business plan, can significantly increase
production and recoverable reserves.
Additionally, Terrex continues to identify and assess potential property
acquisitions that are appropriate for enhanced oil recovery and production
optimization. Terrex looks to take advantage of high impact and large original
oil-in-place reservoirs and existing infrastructure.
