Frontera Resources Corporation (FRR), an independent oil and gas exploration and production company (Frontera), is pleased to announce an operations update for its work in the South Kakheti Gas Complex’s Gas Window initiative, situated within its portfolio in the country of Georgia.

Highlights:
• Operational and technical work advancing associated with the central and western areas of the Complex
• Operations at the Udabno#2 well are now continuing in May
• New 37 well plan to exploit approximately 1 TCF of gas

Operations and advancing technical studies within the western and central areas of the Complex have continued throughout the first quarter of this year where significant natural gas resources have been identified in targeted reservoirs situated between 300 metres and 5,000 metres in depth.

In the western area of the Complex, operations at the Udabno#2 well are now continuing in May where high bottom hole pressures and resulting high shut-in surface pressures remain at a depth of approximately 3,300 meters. Frontera plans to undertake a testing program designed to evaluate an extensive gas-bearing interval of approximately 2,000 meters in gross thickness where internal reservoir engineering models estimate production capability in the range of 10 million – 20 million cubic feet per day of gas.

In the central portion of the Complex’s gas-window related work, integrated analysis of the Company’s existing 3D seismic survey and extensive petrophysical database has resulted in the design of a new 37 well drilling plan to exploit approximately 1 trillion cubic feet of gas. The new program is currently planned to commence in 2017. This recoverable volume is related to Netherland, Sewell & Associate’s 2015 independent assessment of as much as 4.6 trillion cubic feet of gas-in-place, with as much as 3.2 trillion cubic feet of recoverable prospective natural gas resources related to this area of the Complex.

As previously reported, Frontera’s ongoing work has assessed the gas resources associated with its exploration and production efforts at the South Kakheti Gas Complex to contain as much as 187 trillion cubic feet of gas in place from reservoir targets found between 300 metres and 5,000 metres in depth. In 2015, Frontera announced results of reports related to sub-areas of the Complex that it commissioned by the U.S.-based consulting firm of Netherland, Sewell & Associates in order to provide independent assessment of the Company’s estimates. Independent assessment work continues on the balance of the Company’s estimates.

Steve C. Nicandros, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Our technical work at the South Kakheti Gas Complex continues to reveal a new and significant gas province within a broader regional fairway that is already the basis for the Southern Corridor’s extensive gas infrastructure network to Turkey and Europe. Strategically situated along this important gas export route, Frontera’s ongoing operations hold the potential for not only assuring Georgia its own domestic energy independence, but for also making it an important player in Europe’s future energy security. ”
