    "We are excited by this further news of 11 trillion cubic feet of natural gas adjoining our exploration block in Bulgaria. At current prices this equates to over $35 trillion. We will be exploring ways to engage our partners on this project, and to identify a way forward with the project," commented Ian Spowart, CEO of Liberty Energy Corp.
