CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire) - Terra Nova Energy Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: TGC) ("Terra Nova" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the launch of its new website The website includes up-to-date pertinent information on the Corporation and features photography of its field acquisition of 3D seismic on Petroleum Exploration License (PEL) 112.

Terra Nova is also pleased to announce the successful completion of 127km(2) of a 3D seismic survey shot on PEL 112 situated in the Cooper Eromanga Basin in South Australia. The 3D seismic program was executed by the Australian operations group of Geokinetics Inc., Terra Nova's geophysical contractor. The data is of excellent quality and represents a vast improvement (in subsurface imaging) over the historical 2D seismic data in PEL 112. Terra Nova has commenced the data processing and, once complete, will conduct an interpretation of PEL 112 which is expected to be completed in December 2012.

Terra Nova is also engaged in modeling a 150km(2) 3D seismic survey for PEL 444, also situated in the Cooper Eromanga Basin to the north of PEL 112. Once the program has been modeled and the geophysical contractor selected, Terra Nova will apply for a license to shoot a 3D seismic program on PEL 444.

Upon interpretation of results from 3D seismic programs shot on PELs 112 and 444, Terra Nova anticipates it will be in a position to commence drilling in 2013, subject to rig availability.
