Interra Resources, a company controlled by Indonesian businessman Edwin Soeryadjaya, reported gross production of oil at Tanjung Miring Timur of 38,068 barrels in the fourth quarter of 2009, declined 14% from the previous quarter due to mechanical difficulties in the lifting equipment.

A reassessment of the current production activities and plans, and an evaluation of the scope of future development strategy
