About Iraqi KurdistanKurdistan lies within the northern extension of the ZagrosFolded Belt and is estimated to contain up to 45 billionbarrels of oil reserves. The area is highly underexplored.Currently it is the scene of intense exploration activity withwith over 30 mid- to large-size international oil companiesoperating in the region. By the end of 2009, explorationsuccess for finding oil by new operators in Kurdistan wasabout 50%, with significant discoveries reported by DNO(Tawke – 1.3 billion barrels), Heritage Oil (Miran – up to 4.2billion barrels) and Gulf Keystone (Shaikan – up to 5 billionbarrels) in addition to the earlier Taq Taq field (TTOPCO)and the nearby super-giant Kirkuk. Other recently reportedoil discoveries in the region include Benenan (DNO), Shakal(Shakal Production) and Sarqala (WesternZagros).Source: Company press releases. Figures are initial oil in place.Pulkhana BlockThe Pulkhana Block is an appraisal/development project located in the ZagrosFolded Belt of Iraqi Kurdistan. The Pulkhana Field was discovered by thePulkhana-5 well (1956) and flowed at a combined rate of over 2900 bopd fromtwo fractured carbonate reservoirs (the Tertiary Euphrates and the CretaceousShiranish Formations). Well PPP-1 (2006), tested 700 bopd from the ShiranishFormation, while the Euphrates Formation was found to be tight.Testing of the Shakal-1 (2009) discovery by Shakal Production along structureto the south-east and down dip of the Pulkhana Field flowed 2450 bopd fromthree zones over a 75 m interval in the Tertiary. A lead to the north-west of thePulkhana Field, Pulkhana North, on the Block remains untested. Approximately250 km of 2D seismic will be acquired and 3 appraisal wells drilled in the first3-year exploration sub-period. The appraisal drilling campaign will be designedto confirm fluid contents, evaluate reservoir quality, maximize flow rates andwill evaluate the untested Cretaceous reservoirs. As previous wells have beendrilled pre-seismic, the 2D seismic program is designed to confirm the shallowstructure already tested and identify a potential deeper structure on trend to theShakal discovery.The Company has the option to continue on to a further 2-year explorationsub-period and if a commercial discovery has been made a development periodof up to 20 years commencing on the date of declaration of the commercialdiscovery with an automatic right to a five year extension of the developmentperiod. The Company will be operator of the project with a 60% workinginterest. Petoil retains a 20% interest and the KRG holds the remaining 20%.The Company will be obligated to pay 100% of the costs of the first explorationsub-period and 75% of the costs of the second sub-period. Fiscal terms includea 10% royalty and variable profit splits based on an “R” profitability factor tothe KRG. The Company has the right to recover costs using up to 40% of theproduced oil and 50% of the produced gas.

The 973 km 2 exploration block is part of the samestructural trend that contains the Miran oil discovery and includes fivesurface anticlines identified by recent fieldwork and additional potentialin sub-thrust traps. An oil seep in the northern region of the blockis evidence of an active petroleum system. The nearby Miran West-1discovery tested 3640 bopd with an estimated potential, announced byHeritage, of 8000-10000 bopd. The discovery is currently being appraisedby Heritage and drilling is planned in 2010 on the neighbouring MiranEast structure. Under the terms of the PSC, which was also originallyapproved as part of the Pulkhana approval, the Company is obliged toacquire 350 km of 2D seismic and drill two wells in the first three yearexploration sub-period. The Company will hold a 60% working interestand operatorship with the remaining 40% held by the KRG.K42 BlockBlock K42 is located adjacent to the Pulkhana Field and is directly ontrend to the 1.1 BBO Jambur Field to the north and the Sarqala (WesternZagros)oil well to the south. It is a pure exploration play with noseismic or surface mapped prospects. The Block is operated by OilSearch (Iraq) Ltd. which holds a 60% working interest in an optionagreement signed on July 16, 2009, which permits 18 months to collect200 km of seismic data. A 2D seismic survey has been designed toidentify any buried on trend structures. After this date, Oil Search wouldbe allowed to convert under certain conditions to a PSC with standardterms and work commitments. ShaMaran has signed an amendmentto that agreement that allows them to purchase the KRG’s third partyreserved 20% interest and thus become a participant to the optionagreement and any resultant PSC for Block K42.Oil pipelineGas pipelineOil fieldBlockBlock SummariesWorkingInterest Partners OperatorGrossAcreageStatusPulkhana 60% 20% Petoil, 20% KRG ShaMaran 529.58 km 2 DevelopmentAppraisal/Arbat 60% 40% KRG ShaMaran 973.5 km 2 ExplorationK42 20% 60% Oil Search, 20% KRG Oil Search 505 km 2 Exploration
