9 Silverwood Project 9 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 The Company has a 25.5% Working Interest in the recent Richardson #1 well discovery of high quality crude oil and is the operator. The well is currently on production thru newly completed production facilities. The prospect is located under an existing field which produced 7.0 billion cubic feet of gas and over 800,000 barrels of oil on a fault closure. Two high quality sands have been identified; the primary target is the Vicksburg Sand (9,300 feet) and the deeper target (Cockfield) around 11,600 feet. LOUISIANA Silverwood

10 Silverwood Project 10 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Commercial production at the Richardson #1 well commenced on 24 September 2010 Production has averaged approximately 60 barrels of high quality oil per day. Testing continues and permanent production facilities have been constructed. New facilities at Silverwood MonthProduction (bbl) September 2010655 October 20101,768 November 2010 (to Nov 10) 451

11 Bullseye Project 11 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Bullseye Project 276,172 BBLS of gross cumulative Miogyp oil production through October 2010. New well plan being prepared for drilling another Miogyp well (see next slide) Plan to test the Camerina in Jumonville # 1 well once commercial production ends. Camerina estimated resources: 2.2 – 7.1 MMBO and 2-7 BCF of gas (but extent of reservoir unknown). Proven producer in the general area. Examining shallower interval where possible added production possible. Interval already produced from multiple wells. Appears to be several remaining targets to drill. Seen in Jumonville # 2 well logs.

12 Bullseye – Miogyp Development Well Locations 12 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Locations A and B are in the main Miogyp reservoir. Locations C and D are in the possible mottled extension of Miogyp. One other location being added to existing well potential

13 Bullseye: Potential Distribution of Camerina Sand 13 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Note that depth of oil-water contact is unknown, and therefore extent of oil-bearing reservoir is unknown

14 Napoleonville Salt Dome Project 14 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 The Company has a 15% Working Interest in the recent Dugas & Leblanc (D&L) discovery on the Napoleonville Salt Dome. Two other prospect wells (Sagers and Clifton) were drilled on the Napoleonville Salt Dome. Both wells did not contain sufficient hydrocarbons for commercial production. The Napoleonville Salt Dome has historically produced 188 billion cubic feet of gas and 20.2 million barrels of oil. The primary targeted sands are Tex W, Big Hum, Operc, Cris R II – VII, Marg Vag, Camerina and Miogyp with sands commencing at 4,000 ft to 14,000 ft.

15 Napoleonville Salt Dome Project 15 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 The Company has paid USD 300,000 for its participation in the first three well program and has the option to participate in subsequent three well programs and can ultimately earn a 15% working interest over the entire dome project. The Dugas & Leblanc #1 well whilst testing commenced flowing uncontrollably to the surface for two weeks. The well was subsequently plugged and abandoned. The D & L # 2 well has been completed and testing is currently underway. There is at least one additional Big Hum prospect similar to the D&L Discovery

16 Napoleonville Salt Dome Project 16 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 The Dugas & Leblanc #2 well was initially drilled as a relief well but was subsequently commissioned as a development well. There is at least one additional development well to drill updip

17 Permian Basin Project 17 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010

18 Permian Basin Project 18 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Geological and Engineering Summary Reagan & Irion Counties, Permian Basin, Texas Original Spraberry Trend Development Multi-Pay Trends: Spraberry + Wolfcamp = Wolfberry Trend Primary Zones: Spraberry/Dean, Wolfcamp, Strawn Secondary: San Andres, Clearfork, Atoka Reserves Potential: PDP / 1P Reserves ~113 MBOE / Well Well Spacing 160 acres initial 40 acres upon success 100 % GGP Controlled

19 Permian Basin Project 19 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Exceptional Quality Permian Basin Asset Prolific onshore US oil & gas, ~250 X 300 miles, produced 15+ Billion BOE High specification light & sweet oil & high BTU natural gas (WTI and Henry Hub premium) Long decline curve, 30+ year production High Impact Oil Manufacturing Low Risk, <1% Dry Hole Risk Low and Well-Defined Drilling Cost: US$1.5M per well High Density Well-Spacing Potential: 160 to 40 Acre per Well Site Compelling Economics & Growth Cash flow in 6-8 weeks from drilling commencement, future drilling funded out of cash flow or production financing Strong IRR with capacity to many wells Hedge-able production with uncapped oil / gas price upside

21 Fausse Point Project 21 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Fausse Point TGR # 1 Well - Completed February 2010, TD 8450 ft. The Company has an 18% WI. Tested 500 MCF Gas and Condensate with high SITP 4774 # from lowest interval at 8374 ft to 8384 ft. Went on production and eventually settled at low flow rates most likely due to baffled formation caused by close proximity to salt dome. Other potential Miocene hydrocarbon zones uphole all tested with only small amounts of hydrocarbon production. Have acquired 3D Seismic over entire Fausse Point Salt Dome. Reprocessing underway with latest techniques to improve poor quality data. Forward Plan to: Re – evaluate new seismic data and determine new targetsaway from salt dome. Drill an appraisal well in 2011

23 Fausse Point Project 23 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 Log Interpretation – 7000 Zone

24 Bowtie West Project 24 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 GGP has 18% WI paying 20% in the Bowtie West prospect Is in a prolific fairway of previously developed shallower large oil and gas fields The Bowtie Vicksburg is a deeper overlooked play (needed 3D seismic to see it) Near several recent discoveries with large flow rates and per-well recoveries (for example, Heckendorn well, 8MMCFGD + 500 BCPD, cumulative 14 BCFG TEXAS Bow Tie West

25 Bowtie West Prospect 25 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 The Bowtie West prospect has a strong amplitude anomaly that extends widely over the leasehold. This is a relatively low-risk exploration prospect with prospective reserves estimated at 51 BCFG and 1.7 MMBO. Recently acquired acreage could substantial increase potential. Analogue producing wells exist nearby, with IPs > 8 MMCFG per day, and cumulative production of >10 BCFG

26 Padre Island 26 GOLDEN GATE PETROLEUM LTD 12 November 2010 The operator of Padre Island went into Bankruptcy in 2010. We remain a creditor to the proceedings Operators assets have been sold to a third party to pay some of the secured creditors GGP is in discussions with the current operator to participate in some of the wells where we had a working interest in exchange for participation in idled wells still in the GGP portfolio.
