Transeuro Energy Corp.

The main terms of the farm-out are:

The Company's CEO, Mr David Worrall, commented: "We are pleased to be able to complete the negotiations with Honoratus and look forward to a successful joint venture as they quickly prepare for drilling operations in Crimea. Farming out the commitments at Povorotnoye will allow Transeuro to focus on development of the Karlavskoye field and following success of the planned hydraulic fracturing operations, to expand the asset base to other similar discovered gas fields."
