Terrace Energy Provides Operational Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Terrace Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TZR) (the "Company") is pleased to provide an operational update on its South Texas Syndicate Development Project (the "STS Project").

Our STS Project continues to exceed expectations. Our two new wells, the SP5 #1-47H and SP5 #2-47HST1 have just completed flowback testing after 38 days. Together, the two wells recovered more than 41,484 barrels of crude oil and 140,000 mcf of liquids rich gas. The wells continue to produce at rates of 765 BOEPD and 1020 BOEPD respectively(i). Both wells are tied into the "Teak" wet gas processing facility wherein the gas production stream will receive significant value uplift due to high natural gas liquids recovery. Both wells have recovered slightly over 20% of their frac loads and are ready to be turned into permanent facilities. Terrace has a working interest of 33% and net working interest of 25% in each these two wells.

These wells represent a step-out of nearly five miles from our discovery well, the STS #1-667H well, which was placed in production in February and has already accumulated approximately 100,000 BOE in its first nine months of production. Based on the success of these initial wells, the Company has laid out a development grid which will accommodate up to 72 gross drilling locations (20 locations net to Terrace's interest). These early results validate the Company's strategy of making early entries into emerging play areas wherein the Company has acquired significant acreage positions at modest costs and has drilled strategically located delineation wells. The next phase of the program will focus on optimizing capital efficiency by systematically drilling development wells on a grid pattern beginning in the first quarter of 2013.

The STS Project enjoys significant economic advantages due to its proximity to infrastructure and markets as well as premium product prices due to the high gravity of its crude and high natural gas liquids composition. Crude prices in this area enjoy approximately $5.00 premium to WTI. The extension of the "Teak" pipeline into our operating area affords us access to a very high recovery liquids extraction plant which will allow us to extract and market our natural gas liquids ("NGL") products directly. Recovered NGL values are expected to approximately double the effective market price of our natural gas production.

Terrace President Dave Gibbs commented, "We are very pleased with the results of the proof of concept stage on the STS project and excited looking ahead to 2013 as the project shifts to more of a manufacturing operation as we move into multi-well pad drilling. The STS Project provides strong validation of the Company's strategy of positioning itself as a low cost of entry player in project areas that demonstrate strong economic performance due to proximity to infrastructure and recoveries. We expect to continue to execute on this strategic model as we begin moving into similar emerging play areas where our long standing professional relationships and local area expertise will provide us new business development opportunities."
