CBM Asia Selects Netherland, Sewell to Audit Coalbed Methane Resources

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- CBM Asia Development Corp. ("CBM Asia" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TCF)(US:CBMDF)(FRANKFURT:IY2) has selected Netherland, Sewell and Associates, Inc. (NSAI) to audit some of the Company's additional coalbed methane resources in Indonesia.

Based in Houston and Dallas, NSAI is a qualified reserves auditor with extensive experience in coalbed methane (CBM) resource auditing, having worked with most of the top operators in every major producing coal gas basin in the world. NSAI will conduct the audit under Canadian standards for disclosure (National Instrument 51-101 Standards of Disclosure For Oil and Gas Activities).

"CBM Asia previously selected NSAI to audit its interests in the Sekayu and Kutai West PSC's which determined a net 981 Bcf of recoverable unrisked prospective gas resource," (1) stated Alan T. Charuk, the CEO of the Company. "These two blocks account for only 6% of the Company's lease area in Indonesia, while the remaining acreage has not yet been subjected to an independent audit. We believe NSAI's experience in all major producing coal gas basins worldwide is integral in their ability to deliver qualified and balanced reports on some of our additional CBM interests in Indonesia. Once NSAI has completed its initial review, CBM Asia will provide an estimate for the report's release. We believe these audits will help to provide empirical evidence to support CBM Asia's 15 Tcf net prospective resource target." (2)

    These gas in place estimates have not be classified as "discovered
    petroleum initially-in-place" within the meaning of the Canadian Oil &
    Gas Evaluation Handbook (COGE Handbook). The term "discovered petroleum
    initially-in-place" is equivalent to discovered resources, and is
    defined in the COGE Handbook to mean that quantity of petroleum that is
    estimated, as of a given date, to be contained in known accumulations
    prior to production. There are no assurances that any portion of the
    estimated gas in place resources will be discovered. Furthermore, the
    above estimates make no allowance for the recovery of the gas which will
    depend on, among other things, the reservoir characteristics encountered
    and future economic conditions.
