Antrim Farm-In to Bennachie Discovery

Central North Sea - UK Block 21/15a

Calgary & London - April 2005

Antrim announced that it has executed a Heads of Agreement to farm-in to the Bennachie discovery in UK North Sea Block 21/15a, owned and operated by Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited. Antrim will earn a 25.00% working interest in the Block by participating in a well to be drilled by Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited in 2005 or early 2006. Final completion of the transaction, which is subject to the execution of a Farm-in Agreement and Joint Operating Agreement and normal regulatory approval, is expected to be completed by May 31.

The well will be drilled to a planned depth of approximately 3660 metres to test the Jurassic Fulmar sandstone Bennachie Prospect. The Bennachie Prospect was identified by the 21/15a-2 well, which flowed 40° API gravity oil at a rate of 4363 bbl/d on a 44/64" choke.

Block 21/15a is in close proximity to producing fields and infrastructure in the UK Central North Sea.
