Updated reserves volumes and net asset valuation estimates, for year end 2013 will be released by the Company in March of 2014 in a manner consistent with our annual redetermination and reporting of reserves.

Terra's business strategy going forward will be to focus on oil and natural gas liquids with a view towards increasing the oil and liquids content of the Company's production stream over time and increasing the Company's netbacks. The 2014 Capex Plan will largely consist of a number of pipeline projects to tie-in existing wells and otherwise to target plays with oil and natural gas liquids. Two key oil plays will be pursued in particular, namely a light oil play at Stoddart, B.C. and a light oil play at Red Creek, B.C. In addition to these two key oil plays, the Company will also test a number of other oil/liquids plays during the year.

The 2014 Capex Plan has been designed to reverse the trend in declining production experienced by the Company over the past two years and to develop a "platform for growth" focusing on two key oil plays. Moreover, the Company plans to primarily utilize cashflows from operations to meet its 2014 objectives. The target production exit rate for year end 2014 is set at 4,900 boe/d, comprised of approximately 39% oil/liquids and 61% gas.

Cash flow from operations has been forecasted by the Company at approximately $20.8 million for 2014, based upon an estimated average natural gas price of $3.81 per mcf for the calendar year, an estimated average oil price of $86.27 per barrel and an average 2014 production rate of approximately 4,470 boe/d.

Certain information set out herein may be considered as "financial outlook" within the meaning of applicable securities laws. The purpose of this financial outlook is to provide readers with disclosure regarding Terra's reasonable expectations as to the anticipated results of its proposed business activities for the periods indicated. Readers are cautioned that the financial outlook may not be appropriate for other purposes. The financial outlook information contained herein has been prepared based on a number of assumptions including the assumptions discussed above. The actual results of operations and the resulting financial results will likely vary from the amounts set forth herein and such variation may be material.

Terra is a junior oil and gas company engaged in the exploration for, and the development and production of, natural gas and oil in Western Canada. Terra's Common Shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "TT".

Reader Advisory

Forward Looking Statements

All amounts in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.

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. Additionally, given the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalent of 6:1, utilizing a conversion ratio of 6:1 may be misleading as an indication of value.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
