New Stratus Energy Provides Update of Operations and Developments

October 8, 2020

Calgary, Alberta – TheNewswire - October 8, 2020 – New Stratus Energy Inc. (TSXV:NSE) (“New Stratus” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that the Corporation has engaged Info-Geosciences Technology Services to initiate a project of seismic reprocessing, seismic inversion, and modelling of the 2D and 3D data from the VMM 18 block. With this seismic project, the New Stratus continues with the technical evaluation of the block, previous to drill the exploration well, which are both commitments with the ANH for the VMM 18 block in Colombia.

The VMM 18 E&P Contract is highly prospective for light and medium gravity oil and is located in the Middle Magdalena Basin of Colombia covering a total area of 75,968 acres. Management of the Company has identified a number of prospects and leads based on the existing 2D and 3D seismic coverage on the block. Analogous nearby discoveries (Guaduas, Puli, Rio Seco, Toqui-Toqui) some of them in similar play-type, decreases the risk of the prospects in the VMM-18 block. The block is located with nearby access to pipelines with extra capacity as well as a road transportation network to the export terminal.

In addition to the above, the Corporation is continuing to pursue the acquisition of producing assets in the Sub-Andean basin in Colombia, Peru and Ecuador.
