The Company has entered into a binding letter of intent to acquire a participating interest in a production sharing contract ("PSC") for CBM on a 58,349 hectare block located in the South Sumatra Basin where initial exploration drilling of a production test well commenced in the second half of 2009. The Company has committed to fund an initial US$3.25 million in exploration expenditures on the Sekayu PSC to prove reserves and submit a Plan of Development to the Government of Indonesia. The Company also has an 18% net working interest in a PSC for CBM on a 76,000 hectare block located in the Kutai Basin of East Kalimantan. As geotechnical lead, the Company is responsible for directing a US$5.6 million exploration and appraisal program to November 2011, to determine commercial feasibility of CBM production for the Kutai-West PSC and submit a Plan of Development. The Company has 40% net working interests in a second 56,500 hectare block also in the prolific Kutai Basin. Indonesia has one of the largest CBM resources in the world with a potential 453 trillion cubic feet in-place, more than double the country's natural gas reserves (SPE, 2004).
