5 Where we are today Two producing licences and five exploration licences in Colombia and two licences in Guatemala Proved, probable and possible reserves of approx. 40 million barrels, with a further 120 million barrels of potential. Current production of approximately 500 barrels a day (“bopd”), which could rise to 1,500 bopd with secondary development of Colombian Fields Serafin well #1 tests at 14 million cubic feet a day. Commercial gas sales at end 2nd Quarter 2007. Ownership of the strategic Rio Zulia – Ayucucho Pipeline: 2006 Revenue $1.6 million.
