CBM Asia Development Corp. is a Canadian-based unconventional gas company with significant coalbed methane ("CBM") exploration and development opportunities in Indonesia. The Company has entered into a binding letter of intent to acquire a participating interest in a production sharing contract ("PSC") for CBM on the 580.30 km2 Sekayu block located in the South Sumatra Basin where 3 exploration wells are currently being drilled by MedcoEnergi, following initial exploration drilling of a production test well in the second half of 2009. The Company has committed to fund an initial US$3.25 million in exploration expenditures on the Sekayu PSC to prove reserves and submit a Plan of Development to the Government of Indonesia. Sekayu Block Interests of the Company, Ephindo and Batavia Energy are held in South Sumatra Energy, Inc. The Company also has an 18% net working interest in a PSC for CBM on a 868.978 km2 block located in the Kutai Basin of East Kalimantan.
