Notes to Editors:


TomCo Energy Plc owns oil shale leases covering approximately 3,000 acres in the Green River Shale Formation, Uintah County, Utah in 4 separate tracts. SRK Consultants Ltd has declared a surface mineable JORC compliant Measured Resource of 126 million barrels on the main tract of TomCo's Holliday Block lease.


TomCo has entered into a Licence with Red Leaf Resources Inc (Red Leaf), which owns the EcoShale(TM) In-Capsule Process (EcoShale), to use this unique and environmentally sensitive technology to extract oil from TomCo's leases. Red Leaf is planning a 9,800 bopd commercial operation at their Seep Ridge site, which lies about 15 miles SW of TomCo's Holliday Block lease.


TomCo's strategy is to develop the Holliday Block lease as a similar follow-on project to Seep Ridge using the EcoShale In-Capsule Process, with the same targeted production of 9,800 bopd.




bopd: barrels of oil per day
