CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – July 9, 2014) – PanTerra Resource Corp. (“PanTerra” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:PRC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement with an arm’s length industry participant (the “Purchase and Sale Agreement“) to acquire (the “Acquisition“) certain natural gas assets located in the Western Canadian foothills areas of Copton and Narraway, Alberta (the “Assets“), effective as of June 1, 2014, for a purchase price of $2.4 million, payable in cash, subject to adjustments. The Acquisition is subject to standard industry closing conditions. The purchase price for the Acquisition will be funded by existing corporate funds and is expected to close on or about August 6, 2014.
The Assets consist of 5,638 net acres of developed land, 3,070 net acres of undeveloped land and related producing infrastructure in the foothills region of Alberta and British Columbia. The Assets include a 40% working interest in a gas plant at Copton which has strategic significance for future development plans by Panterra within its much larger asset acquisition previously announced on June 12, 2014. The Assets are currently producing approximately 120 BOE per day (100% natural gas). PanTerra has identified several potential unrisked and unbooked locations included with the Assets, based on bypass pay and regional structural understanding of the stacked reservoirs

Caution Respecting BOE
In this press release, the abbreviation BOE means a barrel of oil equivalent derived by converting gas to oil in the ratio of 6 Mcf of gas to 1 bbl of oil (6 Mcf:1 bbl). BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6 Mcf:1 bbl, utilizing a conversation ratio on a 6 Mcf of gas to 1 bbl of oil basis may be misleading as an indication of value.
