5 VPP OVERVIEW Physical BTU Equivalent Market/Index Fixed $ Floating $ Contract Volume VPP Proceeds Floating BTU volume Floating $ HEDGE PROVIDER Pool Investor  A Volumetric Production Payment (“VPP”) is a conversion tool whereby a specified BTU volume is delivered to the Pool Investor (fixed) for a specified future position (floating)  A Delta Global Structured VPP is a REPO of future hydrocarbon production and is conveyed through the swap of a limited volumetric BTU equivalency  In exchange for the VPP interest, the Counterparty contributes margin or eligible collateral and accepts in- kind BTUs marked-to-future market for upfront option to trigger conversion/redemption  When the total specified volume is created by Producer and available to Pool Investor(s) the fractional VPP terminates and the convertible interests are exchanged bespoken, notionally adjusted, or Fx reconciled SEF

6 Modified VPP Structure – Delayed Start VPP Delayed Start VPP Reserves Profile  Delayed Start VPP would allow company to receive cash proceeds on day 1 but begin delivery under the VPP at a later date  Delayed delivery is attractive for fields with existing production and additional development opportunities  The modified structure would generate capital for the development upfront, but allow the deliveries to coincide with production under the new development project  Company would thus retain a share of the field’s production at all times, assuming development stayed on schedule

7 Modified VPP Structures  Any number of modified VPP structures enhance the advance rate/conversion rate/redemption rate and mitigate operational risks. These in-kind creation/redemption trades include:  Volume Limited  IRR/ROI Limited  PDNP/PUD adjustment of iNAV through BTU Facility swapped/collateral substituted in-kind with VPP trades  Pool "D" Structures where VPP Counterparty on bespoken swap is responsible for Opex and Capex related to VPP volumes

8 Prepay Swap Transaction Example  A Prepayment (‘Prepay’ ) is a in-kind collateral substitution tool whereby Producer hedges a specified volume for a fixed tenor with a financial swap which is then discounted and margin/collateral is advanced to the Producer (fixed/floating or floating/fixed)  Preferred Derivative Tool for BTU Arbitrage Transactions  Transaction Size: $50,000 US - $4,000,000 US BESPOKEN SWAP PREPAYMENT Physical Market Proceeds Floating $ Fixed $ Hydrocarbon Volume Floating $ Pool Investor SEF

9 Prepay Details Prepay Reserves Profile ¾ Producer hedges volumes to cover LOE in case prices drop ¾ Producer puts/calls upside on unhedged volumes. Producer puts/calls the floating price each month on the prepay volumes ¾ Producer may retain upside or downside position/leg ¾ Producer may retain COPAS overhead on operated properties ¾ Producer EFPs the floating price each month on the prepay volumes ¾ LOE hedges are settled monthly ¾ SEF/Option Writer for "fixing" of all BTU assets ¾ Select Counterparty is responsible for all Operating Expenses and Taxes

10 Advantages ADVANTAGES OF VPP OVER PRODUCTION PAYMENTS  Higher Advance rate  Term Financing  Accelerate ordinary income to capital gains treatment (VPP only)  Able to monetize and hedge longer tenor  Takes advantage of the contango/backwardation in forward/futures markets  Document Light process, with average structure execution time of approximately 3-6 weeks  Higher Advance rate  Term Financing  Transacted under an ISDA agreement  Able to execute on smaller transaction sizes  Easy structure to unwind, collateral substitute, in-kind or like kind exchange or pay off and redeem  No Facility Fees  Limited Financial Covenants

11 Commodity/BTU Portfolio Management ADVANTAGES OF VPP PREPAY MODIFICATIONS  Company retains hedge management  Producer retains operational and management control  Potential Tax Benefits disproportionately allocated  Counterparty credit risk mitigated  Average Swap Fees of 2.5% - 3% plus expenses  Average closing time of ~ T+3 converted to STP  The commodity market is currently a buyers market  On algo trading platform vol swings from development premium  Auction strike prices pegged to benchmark values of exchange traded
