5 Investment highlights THE BUSINESSInvestment highlights
6 1.1 Unconventional oil and gas in USA Rapid evolution facilitated by:US unconventional oil and gas plays have revolutionised the world energy markets in recent yearsTargeting oil and gas in low permeability rocks through horizontal drilling and fracture stimulationDifferent plays have emerged over recent years, originally in gas basins in Texas and then in oilier plays such as the Bakken and EagleFordInvestors in ASX companies with exposure to shale/tight oil have reaped strong returns from these plays, which have attractive risk and return characteristics – AUT the standout following bid from Canadian E&P Baytex Energy

8 1.2 Acreage value – Well established value path There is a well established value realization path in the US for shale/tight oil resource plays:StageDetailsAcreage Values (Estimated)Stage 1Acreage leasing in new play areas/few wells drilledUS$20-$500/acreStage 2Early stage drilling, early IP ratesUS$500-$1000/acreStage 3Proof of concept, further drilling and optimise drilling & completionsUS$1000-5,000/acreStage 4100’s of wells drilled and firm understanding of Type curveUS$5,000-15,000/acreStage 5Development model established in mature play area/M&A activity increasedUS$15,000-45,000/acreAPOG Acreage
9 1.3 Partnering with an experienced operator Treasure Exploration is JV partner and operator of the Northern Star projectAcquired 70% of the Northern Star project with APOG retaining 30%Treasure paid cash and provides free carry on 2 horizontal wells estimated cost of $8m plus an option for 2 more wellsFirst well expected in late 2014 with the second well six months laterTreasure is a subsidiary of an established Denver based private Independent E&P focused on Rocky Mountains region with significant drilling experience in tight oil playsTrack record of finding resource style tight oil plays as early entrant, developing and successfully monetising assets
10 1.4 Business model Farm Out Early entry into onshore US tight oil resource plays, in areas with excellent infrastructure, ability to quickly enter production, generate positive cash flow and expand play areasInternally generate prospects using geological knowledge, capture significant land positions at a low costPartner with experienced Operator to reduce risk capital exposure via a farm out in a cash and carry dealMonetise assets as play areas mature and seek value accretive acquisition opportunities to complement organic growthProven track record in executing this business model with JV executed with Treasure ExplorationFarm Out
11 1.5 Shale/Tight oil game changers Drilling techniques have advanced significantly with horizontal wells extending up to 2.5km lateral.Costs and effectiveness of multi-stage fracturing have improved considerably in the last 10 years - Multi-stage fracturing can now be done in a few days as opposed to weeks.Microseismic has improved the effectiveness of monitoring the fracturing process.Technology and techniques used together mean commercial flow rates can be obtained from shale reservoirs at reasonable costs.Minimal geological risk present; more of an engineering feat.Production from unconventional resources projected to account for a majority of the supply of gas in the US.Demonstrated the viability and allowed the commercialisation of shale oil and gas production.

21 2.8 Geology – Northern Sun Northern Star Project Target Zone Two main targets are carbonate reservoirs of the Mississippian Madison GroupProject located on the western Extent of the Williston basin, an 80,000 square mile intercratonic basin which covers North & South Dakota and Montana in USA.Charles ‘C’ limestone or “Ratcliffe formation” reservoirs.Mission Canyon limestone reservoirs also have significant potential.Reservoir targets exhibit low permeability and porosity such that traditional completion methods were not economic. However, with the tested high oil saturations present, and utilizing modern drilling and completion methods, such as horizontal drilling and multi-staged frac’ing we expect to make these zones economic and prolific.Mississippi Lime analogue in terms of oil shows, porosity and tightnessHorizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing can be used to target significant resource potentialTarget Zone
