Anterra Tests New Cardium Well

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2011) - Anterra Energy Inc. ("Anterra" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AE.A) announces that it has recently completed the drilling, fracing and completion of its previously announced horizontal well in Section 17-45-5-W5M located in the Pembina (Buck Lake) area of Alberta. The Company undertook testing operations from December 19, 2010 to January 6, 2011, during which time it recovered all of the load fluid and subsequently achieved testing rates of approximately 1,497 barrels of oil per day and 1.9 million cubic feet of natural gas per day for an aggregate production rate of 1,816 BOE/d of field production, ending on January 6, 2011 with a flowing pressure of 3700 kpa. The test results are not indicative of long term production levels. Anterra has now taken over facility tie in operations and is currently in the process of equipping the well for production and anticipates that these activities will be completed within 30 days. Anterra holds a sixty (60%) percent working interest in the well and the balance of Section 17. The Company has additional horizontal drilling opportunities on its lands in the Pembina Buck Lake area which complement its recent drilling success.
