Terra Energy Closes Minor Non-Core Asset Sales

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 8, 2016) - Terra Energy Corp. ("Terra" or the "Company") (TSX:TT) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed the sale of certain of the Company's minor non-core, P&NG assets in the Mica/Parkland area of the Province of British Columbia for approximately $1.0 million.

Net proceeds received from the sale transactions were used to reduce the Company's bank indebtedness. The Company's credit facility has correspondingly been reduced by $1.0 million to a $14.7 million revolving loan, and a $500,000 remaining development line and is subject to annual and mid-term review. The facility is payable on demand with the next annual review scheduled for May 1, 2016.

Black Spruce Merchant Capital has and continues to act as exclusive advisor to the Company in connection with all sale transactions. Terra will, as previously announced, continue to review and evaluate possible opportunities to further enhance shareholder value including the sale of additional oil and gas properties, entering into strategic alliances, mergers, restructuring or recapitalization of the Company.

Black Spruce is currently in the process of marketing the Company's brownfield gas plant and related infrastructure opportunity located in the "liquids-rich" part of the Montney trend in north east British Columbia.
