BRS Resources Files Armonia Drilling Application

DALLAS, TEXAS – September 11, 2014: BRS Resources Ltd. (“BRS”) (TSX.V: BRS) is pleased to announce that AleAnna Resources, LLC (“AleAnna”), an Italian exploration and production company in which BRS holds a membership interest, has submitted a drilling application for the Armonia prospect in the Ponte dei Grilli permit area. The Ponte dei Grilli permit area, located in the Emilia Romagna region of northern Italy’s Po Valley, is in close proximity to and on trend with several nearby producing natural gas fields, including the San Potito and Cotignola fields, which have produced 46 billion cubic feet (Bcf) and 52 Bcf of natural gas, respectively. The application includes a detailed environmental impact report as well as engineering and geological data.

“Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renz has announced energy policy reforms in “Unblock Italy”, which should result in faster approval timelines going forward,” commented Steven Moore, BRS President and CEO. “AleAnna owns 87,969 acres (356 km2) of newly acquired 3D geophysical data on three of AleAnna’s nine permits, which represents the largest 3D geophysical inventory for onshore Italy. AleAnna is the leader in utilization of 3D technology to minimize environmental impact and reduce the drilling required to develop Italian gas reservoirs. AleAnna’s work programs and activities create jobs, economically benefit local entities, regions and the country of Italy and will reduce Italian dependence on imported natural gas.”

Russia’s Expansion into Asian Gas Markets

Russia's Expansion into Asian Gas Markets

Russia recently signed a major $400-billion gas deal with China, and now Japan appears to want in on the action as well.

Bloomberg reported that a group of 33 lawmakers in Japan is pushing the government to build a $5.9-billion pipeline to the island nation from Russia.

Japan has considered a pipeline connection with Russia for roughly a decade, but supporters have ramped up their interest in the project since the closure of Japanese nuclear reactors after the disaster at Fukushima in 2011.

Europe Considers Options in Light of Threat to Russian LNG Supplies

industry gas pipeThe European Union may have given North American oil and natural gas producers the cold shoulder in the past, but now European countries could be considering cross-Atlantic suppliers as one possible alternative to Russian gas supplies.

Europe is assessing its options in the wake of two massive price increases for Russian natural gas for the Ukraine last week. Prices increased from $285 to $385 per thousand cubic metres after the country failed to meet debt repayments to Russia, then rose again to $485 per tcm after Russia retracted a $100 discount following a cancelled Black Sea Naval hosting agreement, according to Reuters. If the Ukraine keeps failing to make payments, Russia’s Gazprom can cut off natural gas flows altogether, as it did in 2009.
