February 26, 2014 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Terra Nova Energy Ltd. ("Terra Nova") (TSX-V: TGC OTCQX: TNVMF) is pleased to announce that it has earned a 25.8333% working interest in Petroleum Exploration Licence ("PEL") 444 as a result of delivering the Wingman 3D seismic survey to the owners of PEL 444.
Earning a 25.833% interest in PEL 444 meets a corporate milestone of Terra Nova. Management is currently assessing the next steps to advance the exploration program, including integrating the Wingman 3D seismic survey with the 2005 2D seismic data.
About PEL 444
PEL 444 is located in the prospective "Western Oil Fairway" of the Cooper/Eromanga Basin in South Australia, where 22 oil fields have been discovered in the last eight years; current production exceeds 15,000 barrels of oil per day. Oil has been encountered in the Namur Sandstone and in channel sandstones of the Birkhead Formation within both structural and stratigraphic trapping configurations. The application of 3D geophysical data in prospecting for hydrocarbon has been instrumental to exploration success given the low structural relief and/or stratigraphic nature of hydrocarbon accumulation in this part of the basin.
