Anterra Provides Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2011) - Anterra Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AE.A) ("Anterra" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following operations update.

BUCK LAKE LSD 01-17-45-5W5M: This horizontal Cardium well continues to flow at greater than 150 boepd, with cumulative production of over 30,000 boes since production started on February 14, 2011. The Company has a sixty (60%) percent working interest in the well and plans to install artificial lift during June, 2011.

BUCK LAKE LSD 08-17-45-5W5M: The horizontal leg of this sixty (60%) percent working interest Cardium well was drilled in April and the completion of the well including multi stage "fracing" is now scheduled for mid June 2011. This is a look alike well to the LSD 01-17 well. Following completion the well will be tied into the central production facility and placed on production.

SASKATCHEWAN BAKKEN PROJECT: Anterra has scheduled the drilling of its one hundred (100%) percent working interest Bakken test well at LSD 09-36-07-18W2M for mid June 2011. This vertical test well will be logged and cored. If the Bakken formation proves to be prospective for oil a horizontal leg will be drilled and the well will be completed using multi stage "fracs". A successful Bakken well will lead to further development as the Company owns 26 sections of land in the immediate vicinity of the test well. The Company also intends to test the Birdbear and Duperow formations in the well.


The Company also wishes to advise shareholders that management recently visited China and presented to over sixty (60) persons in both Beijing and Shanghai. A copy of the Company's Asian tour presentation is now on the Company's web site at
