2 Forward-Looking Statement This Presentation of Infinity Energy Resources, Inc. (the "Company") contains forward- looking statements that may include the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "estimates," "plans," "projections" or other expressions that are predictions of or indicate future events. These forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements. A wide variety of factors that may cause the actual results to differ from these statements include, but are not limited to, the following: the Company's ability to raise sufficient capital and/or obtain a partner on acceptable terms, or at all, to pursue exploration and development activities regarding its Nicaraguan Concessions; the success of its efforts to acquire and process seismic data relating to such Concessions; the quantity of hydrocarbons beneath the Concession blocks; the costs of drilling and completion of any wells; risks that drilling wells will not result in commercially viable oil and national gas production; operating risks, delays and problems; the availability of services on acceptable terms; changes in the prices of oil and gas; unexpected negative geological variances; governmental uncertainties in Nicaragua; actions by creditors with respect to debt obligations, liquidity and capital requirements; competition from larger, more established companies with far greater economic and human resources; the effect of changing economic conditions; changes in U.S. government regulations, tax rates and similar matters; and other risks described in its Annual Report on Form 10-K and periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake to publicly update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. This Presentation is neither an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities of the Company.

Tyra: –Sub-Periods 1, 2, & 3 (4 years) Acquire, process and interpret seismic data. –Sub-Period 4 (2 years) Drill 1 well to 10,000 or to test the Cretaceous. Perlas: –Sub-Periods 1 & 2 (3 Years) Acquire, process and interpret seismic data. –Sub-Periods 3 & 4 (3 Years) Drill 2 wells to 10,000 or to test the Cretaceous.

13 Contract and Fiscal Terms

14 Evidence for Positive Petroleum System 26 wells drilled, 10 have oil or gas shows, at least two have tested measurable hydrocarbons. Shell Perlas#1 well tested 350 bo/day Shell Perlas#1 confirmed Eocene source rock Wells Drilled

15 Geologic and Geophysical Interpretation Geologic and Geophysical interpretation and mapping was based on the following data: Geophysical Data 9,731km of. various seismic surveys acquired during the 70s and reprocessed by Fugro in ,096 km of new seismic acquired and processed by Fugro in ,096 km of magnetic and gravimetric profiles acquired and processed by Fugro in 1999 Well Data Limited information on previous wells obtained through an interpretation report prepared by Fugro-Geoteam AS in 2001

16 Depth Seismic Map Lower Eocene Depth Seismic Map Lower Eocene Seismic interpretation and structural map indicate Intense thrusting and strike slip faulting The Nica-Tinkham ridge is the result of transpressional deformation along a major strike slip fault Tectonic blocks controlled the sedimentation, particularly the development of reef system along the elevated parts of fault blocks The most prominet tectonic high of the area, the Nica- Tinkham ridge, traverses both Tyra and Perlas blocks

17 Reserve Potential Identified 4 large structural closures along the Nica-Tinkham Ridge at the top of the Eocene. Shell #1 Perlas tested 350 BOPD from the Eocene. Potential Eocene reserves assuming: 30 meters of pay, porosity of 20%, oil saturation of 65%, recovery factor of 35%. Based on variations in size of closure: –P50: 4.6 Billion Barrels Potential Cretaceous reserves are not quantified but could be even larger.

30 La Paz Field - Venezuela Production from dense Cretaceous carbonates with low matrix permeability and fractured basement. Structure related to complex wrench fault tectonics. Initial Cretaceous discovery well drilled in 1944 to 1,800 produced at a rate of 1000 BOPD. Development well P-84 produced at a rate of 30,000 BOPD. Field production peaked at 160,000 BOPD in By 1992 field had produced 867 million barrels of oil with 572 million from the Cretaceous carbonates. Ultimate recovery is expected to be 1,041 million barrels of oil with 63% from the Cretaceous carbonates.
