The prospect area is large in size and a leasing program is on-going. Nearby drilling has resulted in several wells that produce in excess of 200boepd after the first 30 days of "flush" production. Nostra Terra owns a 20% interest in this active program within which working interests in the individual wells vary. Based on results from neighbouring wells, we anticipate this prospect also has the potential to deliver rapid payouts with continued strong production levels. Ward Petroleum Corporation, based in Enid Oklahoma, was founded in 1963 by LewWard, its Chairman. Mr. Ward is a past-President of the Independent Producers Association of America (IPAA) and is a respected member of the oil producers' community of the United States. Among its industry honours, Ward Petroleum has been listed in the top 100 fastest growing American companies by Inc. magazine, and has been named a "Blue Chip Enterprise" by Nations Business magazine. Since its founding, Ward Petroleum has drilled more than 800 wells in the Anadarko and Arkoma Basins, some as deep as 22,000 feet. Ward Petroleum operates nearly 350 wells in Oklahoma throughout both basins. Oklahoma is the fifth largest producing state in the United States in crude oil production. Despite its long history, it still produces about one quarter of the peak rate that was reached in 1927. The state was the birthplace for such commonly recognized corporate names as Halliburton, ConocoPhillips and J. Paul Getty.
