HAMMERHEAD RESOURCES INC.-Permit #59,201-12.52KM-Satellite to pipeline-GRANDE PRAIRIE

Hammerhead Resources is a growth-oriented private company with its corporate headquarters in Calgary, Alberta and operations in the Alberta Deep Basin where it is developing multi-zone, light-oil rich plays.

The Montney is a top quartile North American play, with the Company’s holdings offsetting Seven Generations, Paramount, Shell, XTO, CNRL, RMP and Velvet. Hammerhead Resources holds >200,000 contiguous acres of Montney rights (97% average W.I.) and is actively developing its land position in the heart of the Montney volatile oil window in the Gold Creek, Karr, and Simonette areas of NW Alberta.

Successful Hammerhead Resources well results are demonstrating the areal extent and repeatability of the play on the Company’s acreage. Hammerhead Resources Gold Creek wells compete with the best wells in the basin – at a significantly lower capital cost. The Lower Montney has the potential to add significant upside – early geological and petrophysical analysis are proving encouraging.

HHR expects to concentrate its development activities principally in the Gold Creek and Karr areas, driving continued optimized capital efficiency with the use of multi-well pads in areas of existing infrastructure, combined with implementation of leading completion technologies. HHR believes that its balance sheet strength, industry-leading liquids growth, and secured firm egress differentiate the Company from its peers.

West Lake Energy Corp..- Permit#42,841 – 5.22KM – Well to pipeline -DRAYTON VALLEY

West Lake Energy Corp. is a privately owned, intermediate producer with core assets located in the Lloydminster and Provost areas. West Lake’s strategy is to grow its production base in both
its heavy and medium areas through organic drilling complemented with focused acquisitions.

West Lake has applied advanced drilling and completion techniques, which has allowed its wells to achieve compelling economic returns at sustained low oil prices. West Lake continues to execute on a material multi-year drilling program.

Duvernay Shale natural gas formation located in Alberta harbor 9.6 billion bbl of liquid byproducts and premium light oil. Duvernay Shale is expected to have more marketable oil resource (3.4 billion barrels) than the Bakken Formation in Saskatchewan (1.4 billion barrels) and Montney Formation in Alberta and B.C. (1.1 billion barrels). However, the Duvernay’s oil resource is much smaller than the remaining bitumen reserves in Alberta’s oil sands (165 billion barrels). The Duvernay’s marketable gas resource (76.6 Tcf) is smaller than other unconventional gas resources in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, such as the Montney Formation (449 Tcf), Liard Basin – (219 Tcf) and Horn River Basin (78 Tcf).

WHITECAP RESOURCES  – Permit #57,929 – Satellite to pipeline – 3.2KM- GRANDE PRAIRIE

Whitecap Resources is a Canadian public oil company based in Calgary, Alberta, with operations in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. Whitecap is an oil weighted growth company that pays a monthly cash dividend to its shareholders while being recognized for storing more CO2 annually than we emit corporately.

Smoky River Region
The properties in our Smoky River Region include Wapiti, Karr, Simonette, Kakwa and Elmworth all located southwest of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The primary reservoirs being developed are the Dunvegan, Cardium, and Montney resource play, all of which are light sweet (39° – 42° API) oil. These reservoirs are characterized by thick oil columns with significant oil in place. This area utilizes pad-based horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracturing, including extended reach horizontals that exhibit a lower decline profile than in many areas due to the significant oil in place. The Region is comprised of large-scale opportunities and significant inventory setting up Smoky River to provide material future organic growth.

The recent acquisition of Kicking Horse is a continuation of Whitecap’s long-term strategy of selectively consolidating high quality assets in our core operating areas to enhance free funds flow and return of capital to shareholders. The Kicking Horse assets are well positioned in the liquids-rich portion of the Alberta Montney, complement our existing Montney position at Karr and have significant offsetting activity. The Acquisition includes 92 (60.0 net) sections of Montney rights that are 99% operated, with an average working interest of 65%, and provide the potential for further working interest consolidation.
