About EEBPL

The following information relating to EEBPL has been provided to the Company by EEBPL.

EEBPL is a company incorporated in Australia with an operational main office in Jakarta Indonesia. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Endeavour.

Business of EEBPL

EEBPL owns a 100% working interest in the Bengkulu PSC ("Production Sharing Contract") in Sumatra, Indonesia which allows it the rights to expore and exploit the hydrocarbons within the PSC. The original Bengkulu PSC covered 6,310.65 km2 ( 1,559,387 acres) since 35 % of the area has been relinquished, as required by the PSC, the current area is now 4,101.92.94 km2 (1,013,602 acres). The Bengkulu PSC consists of both onshore and offshore portions.

Two prospects and one lead have been identified onshore as well as several more structures of interest offshore. The current work program is to drill 3 onshore wells in early 2010 and to identify offshore well locations to drill in 2011. The expected product from successful wells is light crude oil, although gas and NGLs are possible.

The PSC contract was awarded in October 2005. The exploration phase of the contract is 6 years, extendable to 10 years. If commercial production is developed, rights will extend to October 2035.

An Independent Technical Expert report was prepared on the Bengkulu PSC by Chapman Petroleum Engineering Ltd. Of Calgary AB Canada, in July 2009 in compliance with Canadian National Instrument 51-101 required for public reporting Issuers in Canada. The Independent NI 51-101 report estimates an undiscounted risked value of US$311 million subject to probability estimates.
