Forward Looking and Cautionary Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements relating to the CCAA proceedings and the reorganization or restructuring of the capital and strategic alternatives process, business and financial affairs of the Company, the Company's plans and other aspects of the Company's anticipated future operations, strategies, financial and operating results and business opportunities. These forward-looking statements may include opinions, assumptions, estimates, management's assessment of value, reserves, future plans and operations.

Forward-looking statements typically use words such as "will," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "project," "should," "plan," and similar expressions suggesting future outcomes, and include statements that actions, events or conditions "may," "would," "could," or "will" be taken or occur in the future. The forward-looking statements are based on various assumptions including expectations regarding the success of current or future drill wells; the outlook for petroleum and natural gas prices; estimated amounts and timing of capital expenditures; estimates of future production; assumptions concerning the timing of regulatory approvals; the state of the economy and the exploration and production business; results of operations; business prospects and opportunities; future exchange and interest rates; the Company's ability to obtain equipment in a timely manner to carry out development activities; and the ability of the Company to access capital and credit. While the Company considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a wide range of assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors that contribute to the possibility that the predicted outcome will not occur, including, without limitation: risks associated with the level of the Company's debt, the implementation and impact of obtaining any reorganization or restructuring of the current debt and strategic alternatives process, business and financial affairs of the Company, future co-operation of the creditors of the Company, the Company's ability meet its ongoing obligations during the CCAA process and thereafter, the ability to maintain relationships with suppliers, customers, employees and other third parties in light of the Company's current situation and the CCAA proceedings, risks associated with oil and gas exploration, development, exploitation, production, marketing and transportation; loss of markets; volatility of commodities prices; currency fluctuations; imprecision of reserves estimates; environmental risks; competition from other producers; inability to retain drilling rigs and other services; incorrect assessment of the value of acquisitions; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions; general economic conditions; delays resulting from or inability to obtain required regulatory approvals and to satisfy various closing conditions; and ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive.

Specifically, some of the material risks include the uncertainty involved in the CCAA proceedings and the implementation of a Plan under the CCAA, strategic alternatives and capital restructuring process. Actual timelines associated with the CCAA proceedings may vary from those anticipated in this news release and such variations may be material.

Although Shoreline believes that the expectations represented by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will be realized. As a consequence, actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements and you should not rely unduly on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as of the date of this news release. Except as required by applicable law, Shoreline does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.
