Planned expansion, description As a result of the relocation of the plant and the planned expansion of the plant's production capacity to 1,000 barrels per day, and subsequently to an additional 3,000 barrels per day, the Company reevaluated the depreciation policy of the oil extraction plant and the oil extraction technologies (Note 10) and determined that depreciation should be recorded on the basis of the expected production of the completed plant at various capacities.   The Company began the dismantling and relocating the oil extraction facility to its TMC Mineral Lease facility to improve production and logistical efficiencies while continuing its project to increase production capacity to a minimum capacity of 1,000 barrels per day. The plant has been substantially relocated to the TMC mining site and expansion of the plant to production of 1,000 barrels per day has been substantially completed.
