Increase of Senior Lending Facility and Operational Update


Nostra Terra (AIM:NTOG), the oil and gas exploration and production company with a portfolio of assets in the USA and Egypt, is pleased to announce a significant increase of the borrowing base of its Senior Lending Facility ("the Facility") with Washington Federal Bank.


Nostra Terra has been granted an increase of $750,000 on its borrowing base, immediately available for use. As previously announced (31 Jan 2018), the Facility size is US$5million and the initial borrowing base was US$1.2million, which has now been increased to US$1.95 million.


The redetermination was calculated based on production as of 01 May 2018 and was based solely on oil production at Pine Mills. The Company's production in the Permian Basin has yet been factored into the borrowing base calculation, nor have the recently announced production increases at Pine Mills. As such, Nostra Terra expects a further positive increase at the next redetermination.


As previously announced, Nostra Terra's strategy in the Permian Basin is to grow oil production across its portfolio of assets, primarily using non-dilutive funds from the Facility.


Operational Update


The completion process of the G6 well, at the Company's Mitchell County License in the Permian Basin, continues. Commercial production has been initiated and Nostra Terra will provide a production update from its Permian Basin assets shortly, once stabilised rates can be reported.


Nostra Terra is also finalising its plans for further drilling in the second half of this year and will provide an update to the market on this in the coming weeks.


Matt Lofgran, Chief Executive Officer of Nostra Terra, commented:


"We are delighted at our progress this year and the increase in the size of borrowing base of the Facility is testament to the resources we have invested in developing our current portfolio. Being cashflow positive at the PLC levels also means that any funds used from the Facility can go towards drilling new wells to continue our growth."
