The Company has entered into a binding letter of intent to acquire a participating interest in a production sharing contract ("PSC") for CBM on the 58,349-hectare Sekayu block located in the South Sumatra Basin where 3 exploration wells are currently being drilled by MedcoEnergi, following initial exploration drilling of a production test well 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. Sekayu Block Interests of the Company, Ephindo and Batavia Energy are held in South Sumatra Energy, Inc.
