North Makeevskoye Field December 29, 2010 - December 29, 2015

Olgovskoye Field

The Olgovskoye exploration license, originally granted on May 31, 2006, was issued as a new license with additional acreage in 2009 and is set to expire on August 11, 2014, though it may be extended until 2019. An application has been submitted to convert this license from a five-year exploration license to a 20-year production license. This is currently the most productive of the licenses held by KUB-Gas and has experienced several excellent drilling results over the year. KUB-Gas has drilled five wells through 2011, with a sixth currently underway (an infill target with good permeability and porosity). The wells drilled over the course of the year have seen consistently better results. Logs on the O-9 well indicated multiple hydrocarbon bearing zones and a new discovery in the Lower Bashkirian reservoir (tested at 1.2 MMcf/d). The primary zone of this well, the Middle Bashkirian, tested at a maximum rate of 4.4 MMcf/d (stabilized at 2.9 MMcf/d). Most recently, the O-12 well tested at a rate of 8.1 MMcf/d, which is the best result seen to date. The results from this well are important as it was a step-out location that further defined the extent of the main producing structure. Plans for 2012 include one appraisal well (O-11) and one development well (O-15) to be drilled by the end of Q4, 2012. As of January 1, 2011 there was approximately 24.0 BcfGE (3,997.6 Mboe) [1.85 BcfGE PDP, 2.36 BcfGE PDNP & 19.78 BcfGE PUD] of net Proved Reserves (gas and condensate) and 35.9 BcfGE (5,991.4 Mboe) net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to this field on a 100% ownership basis (or, 7.20 BcfGE (1,119.3 Mboe) of net Proved Reserves and 10.8 BcfGE (1,797.4 Mboe) net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to this field on Gastek's 30% ownership basis). This exploration license is expected to be converted to a 20-year production license in the first quarter of 2012.

Makeevskoye Field

The Makeevskoye exploration license, originally granted on May 18, 2001, was issued as a new license with additional acreage in 2009 and is set to expire on August 11, 2014, though it may be extended until 2019. An application has been submitted to convert this license from five-year exploration license to a 20-year production license. This license has experienced exciting exploration successes and as such as become a focus for KUB-Gas. Most recently, the M-19 exploration well, drilled in the second half of 2010 to a depth of 2,060 metres, recorded initial test results of 5.0 MMcf/d over 15 days. This was the first KUB-Gas well to use Western-style logging tools. Directly adjacent to the Olgovskoye Field, this license will be the focus of substantial activity in 2012. Current plans are for the M-21 well to be drilled in Q2, 2012 followed by another follow up in Q3, 2012. The M-21 well is seen as a low risk step-out location based on the success of the M-19 well and will be located 830 metres away. As of January 1, 2011, there was approximately 5.3 BcfGE (883.3 Mboe) [0.98 BcfGE PDP & 4.32 BcfGE PDNP] of net Proved Reserves (gas and condensate) and 8.4 BcfGE (1,393.3 Mboe) of net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to the field on a 100% ownership basis (or, 1.59 BcfGE (265.0 Mboe) of net Proved Reserves and 2.51 BcfGE (418.0 Mboe) net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to this field on Gastek's 30% ownership basis). This exploration license is expected to be converted to a 20 year production license in the first quarter of 2012.

Krutogorovskoye Field

The Krutogorovskoye exploration license, originally granted on July 16, 2004, was issued as a new license with additional acreage in 2009 and is set to expire on August 11, 2014, though it may be extended until 2019. This field is currently a nominal producer and remains an exploration project of KUB-Gas. 2D seismic has defined a four-way dip closure in the northeast corner of the license which the K-5 well will test in Q3, 2012. Targets include Muscovian and Bashkirian formations (several sands in the Bashkirian formation have produced gas in both the earlier K-1 and K-3 wells). Management's preliminary view is that trap and stratigraphy will be the main risk factors applicable to this the 2,800 metre well. As of January 1, 2011, there was approximately 1.4 BcfGE (238.3 Mboe) [0.88 BcfGE PDP & 0.55 BcfGE PUD] of net Proved Reserves (gas and condensate) and 2.4 BcfGE (402.8 Mboe) of net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to the field on a 100% ownership basis (or, 0.43 BcfGE (71.5 Mboe) of net Proved Reserves and 0.73 BcfGE (120.9 Mboe) net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to this field on Gastek's 30% ownership basis). This exploration license is expected to be converted to a 20-year production license prior to the first quarter of 2012.

Vergunskoye Field

The Vergunskoye production license was issued on September 27, 2006 and will expire on September 27, 2026. The field is approximately 1 kilometre x 2 kilometres and is not a substantial producer at this time, though historically the field has produced 13.8 Bcf from six wells. Three zones have been identified for multi-zone production or restart, but as of this time there are no plans to drill any wells in 2012 until available data has been analyzed in detail. As of January 1, 2011, there was approximately 1.3 Bcf of net Proved (PDP) Reserves (dry gas) and 2.6 Bcf of net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to the field on a 100% ownership basis (or, 0.40 Bcf of net Proved Reserves and 0.78 Bcf net Proved plus Probable Reserves attributed to this field on Gastek's 30% ownership basis).

North Makeevskoye License

The North Makeevskoye exploration license was granted on December 29, 2010 and is set to expire on December 29, 2015. Gross acreage position is approximately 47,073 acres. Similar to the Olgovskoye and Makeevskoye licenses, the license lies along the primary southeastern Dnieper-Donetsk Basin gas/condensate structural trend and is prospective for gas production from multiple zones within the Muscovian and Bashkirian sedimentary section. The license area is located only four kilometres from the recent M-19 gas discovery, which tested at 5 MMcf/d. To date, 2D seismic has provided the Northern Prospect, which management believes has significant resource potential. Plans include completing the 2D seismic program, currently underway, and drilling the first exploration well in the first quarter of 2012. 3D seismic is planned to commence in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Exploration License Legislation

Under the terms of exploration licences, KUB-Gas may produce gas and gas condensate on the exploration fields to a cap of 10% of total reserves estimated and approved by the licensor, the Ministry for Environmental Protection of Ukraine, and may not exceed the cap during the exploration status. Management of KUB-Gas closely monitors the compliance with terms of the licenses. Should KUB-Gas wish to produce more, it would need to convert the exploration licenses into production licenses. The production license allows unlimited production of gas and gas condensate over the terms of the license. Management expects that KUB-Gas will be able to convert the exploration licences into production licences once this is necessary and three applications are currently submitted for approval.

Reserves and Resources

RPS Energy, an engineering consulting company, has prepared the RPS Report which evaluated the natural gas and NGL Reserves and natural gas Contingent Resources associated with the Ukrainian licenses held by KUB-Gas effective as at January 1, 2011. RPS Energy is entirely independent of KUB-Gas, Kulczyk Oil Ventures, Gastek LLC and 3P International. Future growth in Reserves is expected to come from development of the Contingent Resources defined at Olgovskoye and Makeevskoye and by further development of all of the fields. There is also potential for additional volumes of Contingent Resources associated with the Vergunskoye and Krutogorovskoye fields. Additionally, the RPS Report does not take into account the application of new field operating practices used elsewhere in the world to improve overall well productivity, such as hydraulic fracturing, dual completions and compression of gas, which KUB-Gas intends to apply to the fields. With regard to further update, the RPS Report specifically acknowledges that there are additional gas reservoirs located in conventional but relatively tight reservoirs which should produce commercially after fracturing, but which will not be categorized as Reserves until KUB-Gas demonstrates this procedure will work on the fields. The first two fracs were recently conducted on the O-6 and O-8 wells on the Olgovskoye Field. The O-8 well flowed gas at a rate of 1MMcf/d, from a previously non-commercial zone. The O-6 well flowed gas at a rate of 2.3MMcf/d, from a previously non-commercial zone. Both fracs were considered commercial successes and are expected to produce by year end. For more details please see the press releases of Kulczyk Oil Ventures Inc., the 70% owner of KUB-Gas, dated November 2, 2011 and November 14, 2011.

The work program for 2011-2012 will principally target a continuation of the exploitation of the Olgovskoye and Makeevskoye fields. This will involve the drilling of new wells, the completion of new zones in existing wells, dual completions, stimulation treatments using modern and technology advanced methods commonly used elsewhere in the world and the implementation of a compression strategy. So far to date this work program drilled five successful wells in 2011 and completed 160 kilometres of 2D and 3D seismic and four work-overs.

RPS has calculated the net present value ('NPV') as at 1st January 2011, at various annual discount rates, based on a gas price forecast as shown below. The NPVs are shown in the tables following the price assumptions.

Contingent Resources have also been estimated for Olgovskoye and Makeevskoye. These Resources are classified as such since they are not the subject of specifically planned wells and/or are situated in reservoirs which have yet to demonstrate commercial flow-rates. The recent success of frac'ing procedures may result in some of these Resources being targeted for development in the near future. However, at this time, there is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the Resources.

Note: At KUB-Gas / Kulczyk's request, RPS used in the economic model the depreciation rates in force prior to 1 January 2011. A new fiscal code was introduced in the Ukraine in early 2011 involving changes to the rules governing depreciation for corporate profits tax purposes but these had not been finalised at the time the RPS Report was published. As depreciation impacts the level of taxable profit, RPS cautions that the new depreciation rates could prove to have a material – though as at the date of the RPS Report, unquantifiable – impact on the net present values presented in the RPS Report. In addition, the after-tax calculations have been made at the gross sales point and do not include any corporate tax considerations that might be advantageous or deleterious to the individual company cash-flow.

Notes:
(1) "Contingent Resources" are those qualities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations using established technology or technology under development, but which are not yet considered mature enough for commercial development because of one or more contingencies. Contingencies may include factors such as economic, legal, environmental, political and regulatory matters, or a lack of markets. Contingent resources are further categorized into "Low estimate" and "Best estimate" according to the level of certainty associated with the estimates and may be sub-classified based on economic viability.
(2) "Low estimate" is considered to be a conservative estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the low estimate. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 90% probability (P90) that the quantities recovered will equal or exceed the low estimate.
(3) "Best estimate" is considered to be the best estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will be greater or less than the best estimate. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 50% probability (P50) that the quantities recovered will equal or exceed the best estimate.
(4) "High estimate" is considered to be an optimistic estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is unlikely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the high estimate. If probabilistic methods are used, there should be at least a 10% probability (P10) that the quantities recovered will equal or exceed the high estimate.

Some of the risks and other factors that could cause the results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking information include, but are not limited to: general economic conditions in the Ukraine and globally; industry conditions, including fluctuations in the prices of natural gas; governmental regulation of the natural gas industry, including environmental regulation; unanticipated operating events or performance which can reduce production or cause production to be shut in or delayed; failure to obtain industry partner and other third party consents and approvals, if and when required; competition for and/or inability to retain drilling rigs and other services; the availability of capital on acceptable terms; the need to obtain required approvals from regulatory authorities; stock market volatility; volatility in market prices for natural gas; liabilities inherent in natural gas operations; competition for, among other things, capital, acquisitions of reserves, undeveloped lands, skilled personnel and supplies; incorrect assessments of the value of acquisitions; geological, technical, drilling, processing and transportation problems; changes in tax laws and incentive programs relating to the natural gas industry; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions and dispositions; and the other factors.

Possible reserves are those additional reserves that are less certain to be recovered than probable reserves. There is a 10% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the sum of proved plus probable plus possible reserves.

Production volumes and reserve information are commonly expressed on a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") basis. BOE's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Production volumes and reserve information can also be expressed on a thousands of cubic feet of gas equivalent ("McfGE") basis. McfGE's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A McfGE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Estimated net present values do not represent fair market value.
