An initial capital investment to build a 54 mile pipeline to deliver the natural gas to a PDVSA pipeline, modify the Uracoa field processing plant, and provide other infrastructure is expected to be $25 million in 2003. Further $21 million will be invested in 2004.Gas sales are expected to start at a rate of 40-50 MMcfd in fourth quarter of 2003 and gradually increase to 70 MMcfd in 12-18 months.

Terms calls for the delivery of up to 198 bcf of natural gas through July 2012 for $1.03 Mcf.

This contract prompted HNR's independent petroleum engineer to add 198 bcf of gas reserves to Benton-Vinccler's proved reserves. For HNR, this is a net addition of 158 bcf.
