The majority of current operating costs are fixed so if Tonalli is able to bring on additional production volumes then the per barrel operating costs are expected to be lower.Several new drilling targets have been identified at Tecolutla.  The Company is currently in the process of technical evaluations and procurement planning for a downhole location for a directional Tec-12 well to be drilled from the existing Tec-10 pad.About International Frontier ResourcesInternational Frontier Resources Corporation (IFR) is a Canadian publicly traded company with a demonstrated track record of advancing oil and gas projects.
