*Reserves are defined as the Company’s working interest share of gross reserves before royalty interest reserves.

In Canada, all Proved and Probable Reserves, provided by Calgary, Alberta based GLJ Petroleum Consultants (GLJ) are attributed to the Company’s Woodrush NE BC leasehold interests.

In the US, all Proved and Probable Reserves provided by Boulder, Colorado based Gustavson Associates are attributed solely to the Williams Fork (WF) Formation underlying the Company’s revised 25% working interest following the disposition of 46.43% of its 71.43% working interest at Kokopelli in mid-2014. In this area, the WF is a 3500 ft. thick section of tight gas sands, where economic ultimate recovery approximates 1.25 Billion Cubic Feet (BCFE) equivalent of wet gas per well. Gustavson has identified 143 PDP and PUD locations and 77 Probable Undeveloped locations for the WF in the NI 51-101 case and 143 PDP/PUD locations, only, for the SEC case. The NI 51-101 case provides a broader view of the recovery of hydrocarbons from the Kokopelli leasehold.

"We are pleased to report the significant value retention at YE 2014 of the reserves at our core projects over YE 2013, following a strategic sale in Q2 2014. We look forward to updating reports in 2015 to include our current development progress. With the completion and tie in of the eight new wells at Kokopelli anticipated for mid-year 2015 we are comfortable with our target production forecast of 1200+ BOEPD on a Company-wide basis and prepare for the next opportunity to expand our production base and enterprise value during these volatile times,” states Robert L. Hodgkinson, Chairman & CEO.
