EXPERIENCE Mr. Oliver is President of Stephen J.P. Oliver & Associates Ltd., a technical consulting firm providing engineering, and due diligence services to the oil and gas industry, specializing in analysis of naturally-fractured reservoirs. Stephen J.P. Oliver & Associates Ltd. provides complete project management services, including prospect evaluation, well and facility design, due diligence, expert testimony, well design, completion design, well drilling, production analysis, and reserves estimation. Prior to this, he managed the Devonian Shale project for ICF Resources (later Advanced Resources International), under contract to Gas Research Institute, dealing with improved gas recovery technologies, production analysis, and geologic characterization. Mr. Oliver is intimately familiar with all aspects of shale exploitation from shallow vertical wells in Michigan, Illinois, New York and Ohio to deep extended lateral completions in the Eagleford, Woodford, Appalachian and Barnet Shales. He has produced four geologic appraisals of the coalbed methane potential of the Warrior, Piceance, San Juan, and Northern Appalachian Basins. He completed analyses of Devonian Shale Drilling in the Appalachian Basin and conducted a detailed geologic and reservoir analysis of Devonian shales in the Appalachian, Illinois and Michigan Basins, and, several other shale deposits in the United States and overseas. Also, he has produced reserves evaluations and feasibility studies for several coalbed methane reservoirs in the United States, Africa, Canada, United Kingdom, and Mexico. In the Antrim Shale, Mr. Oliver designed and conducted the first field-wide well test program, which provided an understanding of reservoir stimulation performance and resulted in the operator refracturing wells for greatly improved gas production. Mr. Olivers experience extends from comprehensive analyses of low pressure naturally-fractured reservoirs to deep geopressured reservoirs in Louisiana and Texas; from low rate shallow shale gas fields to high rate, deep, oil-bearing gulf coast sandstone and carbonate reservoirs. He has several years experience in chemical analysis of produced gases and fluids, geochemical analyses, enhanced oil recovery research, unconventional gas recovery simulation, perforation and geophysical logging technology, hydraulic fracturing, production optimization, risk analysis, and prospect evaluation.

January 1992 to Present 1. Areas of Qualification: Well completions, fractured reservoir engineering, enhanced oil recovery management, unconventional gas recovery, methane from coal seams, Devonian shale gas, statistics, reservoir simulation, discounted cash-flow analyses, economic evaluation, due diligence, exploration, project and prospect evaluation, reserves estimation, and technical editing. 2 Company: Stephen J.P. Oliver & Associates Ltd. Title: President Work Locations: Tulsa, Oklahoma Experience and Capabilities: Mr. Olivers company provides technical consulting services to the oil and gas industry. He has designed test well programs for clients across the United States and has completed several multi-well field testing and development programs. He has designed specific well completion procedures new to the industry and is actively applying new hydraulic fracturing technology to old plays. He has provided services in due diligence, hydrocarbon exploitation, planning and reserves management to foreign governments, interstate banks, major utility companies, major oil & gas companies, and independent operators in oil and gas investments, with emphasis on shales, coalbed methane, and other multi-well, low risk plays. Additional experience includes on-site well design and supervision and project evaluation in several states and countries (AK, AL, AR, CA, CO, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MS, MT, ND, NY, OH, OK, PA, TN, TX, VA, UT, WV, WY; AB, BC, MB, ON, SK, in Canada, Africa, Algeria, Great Britain; Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, and Russia). Mr. Oliver has also presented a series of seminars across the United States dealing with natural gas investments.

February 1987 to January 1992 1. Areas of Qualification: Enhanced oil recovery, unconventional gas recovery, methane from coal seams, Devonian shale gas, statistics, reservoir simulation, computer system layout and management, computer modeling documentation, reactor modeling, theories of scientific discourse, technical editing, document and report design and publication. 2. Company: Advanced Resources International (previously ICF Resources Incorporated, and formerly Lewin and Associates, Inc.) Title: Project Manager Work Location: Fairfax, VA Experience and Capabilities: He produced four technical reports of the geologic assessment of natural gas from coal seams in the Warrior, Piceance, San Juan, and Northern Appalachian Basins. This included design from the ground up of these reports, as well as full responsibility for final printing and production. He was also involved in geochemical, geologic and hydrocarbon potential analysis of Devonian shales and compiles the annual drilling statistics for Devonian shales in the Appalachian Basin. At ICF Resources, Mr. Oliver managed the multi-million dollar Devonian Shales Evaluation and Technology Transfer project and was involved in Methane from Coal Seams publication and report design and editing. As Senior Editor at Lewin and Associates, he designed from ground level a triannual Technology Review of Devonian Shales, as well as wrote several articles for inclusion. He is also experienced in enhanced oil recovery, unconventional gas recovery, gas reservoir simulation, and computer modeling documentation. He managed projects in Devonian shale gas evaluation, production studies, and technology development assessments and transfer and has served as a contributing editor to industry oil & gas publications
