Terra Energy Places East Boudreau on Production

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2007) - Terra Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TTR) ("Terra Energy" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has completed construction of its 19.5 kilometre gas pipeline connecting Terra Energy's East Boudreau gas field in North East B.C. to the Company's 100% owned Red Creek gas plant. The completion of the combination 4" and 6" pipeline adds approximately 3 MMCF per day (500 boed) of natural gas production, raising the Company's current production level to approximately 3,700 boed.

"This marks the completion of the second of four key infrastructure projects that Terra Energy announced for 2007, and I am pleased with the steady progress the Company is making towards placing more of its natural gas reserves on production." stated Cas H. Morel, President and CEO of Terra Energy. "The focused nature of Terra Energy's Fort St. John core area means that every infrastructure project which is completed and which increases our production level, will also improve our operating costs and netback calculations. These increased production levels will also greatly improve our cash flow metrics going forward, especially into 2008."

With the East Boudreau pipeline now complete, Terra Energy next plans to tie-in production at its Eight Mile South gas field. The Company previously announced that it had entered into a transportation and processing agreement with a third party midstreamer and had committed 3.25 MMCF per day (525 boed) of net production to this project. The expected onstream date for this incremental production is during Q4 - 2007. The Company currently has greater than 3.25 MMCF per day of net production capability in its Eight Mile South gas field. Terra Energy has numerous development drilling locations at Eight Mile South, but the Company's development plans for the field will be based upon the specific production decline rate for the Doig gas pool. Significant further development drilling is anticipated to be carried out in Eight Mile South by Terra Energy during 2008.


A BOE conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet per barrel (6mcf/bbl) of natural gas to barrels of oil equivalence is based upon an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency for the individual products at the wellhead. Such disclosure of BOE's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.
