  • Utah and Wyoming Asset Overview
  • Central Utah Overthrust— a String of Pearls North American Overthrust (Rocky Mountains): • 40% of world oil reserves are arrayed along thrust belts. • The North American Thrust Belt runs from Alaska (Prudhoe Bay) to Mexico (Cantrell Field).  Four billion barrels of oil-equivalent (BOE) found in Canadian Overthrust.  National and state parks, great depths and extreme volcanism have limited activity in Montana and northwestern Wyoming National and state parks  Two billion BOE found in northeast Utah and southwest Wyoming in 1970’s and 80’s Extreme volcanism Hogback Ridge • Two large reported discoveries on both the Paxton and the Gunnison Thrust confirm productivity of Central Utah Overthrust.  Covenant Field, discovered in 2003/4, has estimated 150 million Bbls with 13 million BO produced to date. Modified from Moulton and Pinnell, 2006  Providence Field, discovered in 2008, multi pay system, has estimated reserves several times larger than the Covenant Field 22

Geological research and lease acquisition is ongoing 23
  • Central Utah Overthrust—Source and Migration Pathway Modified from Willis 1999 It is estimated that approximately one trillion barrels of oil, or more, were generated from Mississippian aged (359-318 million year old) source rocks, mostly likely the Chainman Shale, in western Utah and Nevada. However, only 65 billion barrels have been found in Utah’s Tar sands. • Oil found in the Covenant Field has a different source. Mississippian Source Basin Several Trillion barrels of Oil Generated • The HPI Liberty #1 discovered pristine Mississippian Oil from this large source basin, for the first time. Tar sands Liberty Field Freedom Trend Prospect • This identifies a migration pathway from Western Utah, into the Central Utah Overthrust. Tar sands Only 65 Billion barrels of oil Tar sands are accounted for in Utah’s Providence Field Tar Sands Covenant Field Tar sands • There are many more undrilled structural closures in the central Utah over-thrust, the largest of which is Richfield’s HUOP Freedom Trend Prospect. • That prospect covers 11 contiguous miles on the northern end of the Gunnison Thrust. Mississippian Oil Migration Pathway and trapped oil Modified from Schelling 2007 24
  • HUOP FREEDOM TREND PROSPECT 6,000 feet 9,000 feet 12,000 feet North Gravity maps show prominent structural anomalies—similar to those in the Covenant and Providence fields but substantially larger. Multi-spectral satellite photography reveals Freedom Trend acreage to be among the most hydrocarbon-saturated on the Overthrust. 2D seismic shows three, overlapping structural closures in the Twin CreekNavajo. One engineering study found potential gross reservoir volume in excess of several billion barrels. 25
  • HUOP Freedom Trend Prospect • Richfield's position covers the largest identified undrilled structure in the Central Utah Overthrust. • We anticipate a discovery in three stacked Navajo formations, 1,000+ feet thick each, filled to spill point. • The Freedom Trend prospect is in the Mississippian oil migration path. 13,000 feet in Fountain Green Prospect. Initial test well, to Covenant Field Cross Section Source: Wolverine Gas & Oil Corp. 150 million Barrels of Oil Jurassic will target three repeated sections of Twin CreekNavajo with the untested sourcing Mississippian super giant. Providence Field Cross Section Source: Wolverine Gas & Oil Corp. Categorized as several times larger than Covenant Field Richfield’s Freedom Trend Cross Section Source: Hewitt Petroleum/Richfield Oil & Gas. Categorized Seismically as several times larger than Providence Discovery Wolverine Gas and Oil Company’s Covenant Field and subsequent Oxy/Wolverine Providence field discoveries in 2003/4 and 2008, show important similarities with Fountain Green. 26
  • HUOP Freedom Trend Prospect - Cretaceous Reservoirs The Cretaceous-Tertiary unconformity is in a position to be an excellent trap for hydrocarbons in the Cretaceous Backthrust. Proposed Location High Energy Wedge Unconformity Cretaceous Backthrust •There is a High Energy Wedge (HEW), intersecting the top of the Cretaceous backthrust in Fountain Green. •This appears to be a collapsed zone with extensive natural fracturing. •The HEW is about 2,500’ thick, covers about 17 Square miles. The potential reserves of this system are as large as the Navajo potential. •The HEW is up-dip of where the Tununk Shale is currently generating hydrocarbons High Energy Wedge delineated by blue faults This structure map of the Emery Fm, is based off of 2-D Seismic, and is overlaid with our Geochemical anomaly survey. It is extremely interesting to note that the Geochemical anomalies are outlined by the faults (in blue) that delineate the High Energy Wedge. 27
  • Independence Project – Mancos (Tununk) Shale • In 1976, Hansen Oil drilled the Moroni #1A, to a TD of 21,260’, looking for a Mississippian Objective • Circulation was lost in the naturally fractured Tununk Shale (Lower Mancos) at 11,551’. Oil flowed continuously to the pits. It took 4 months to drill past it and set casing. The well was later plugged. • In 1998 Cimarron drilled a horizontal Sidetrack in the Tununk with 6 failed laterals. • Limited perforations in the Tununk, through the stuck drill pipe, have tested as much as 720 BOPD, but Severe mechanical constrictions and LCM’s have combined to make this discovery well inoperative in it’s current condition. Moroni #1-AXZ Gas Flare 20,800 Units When the Horizontal was being drilled, Lost Circulation Materials were recovered over 300’ from where they were put in the ground during the 1976 drilling operations. This shows extreme natural fracturing. The extreme nature of the fracturing at the Moroni #1 AXZH is confirmed by the Dipole Shear Anisotropy log at right. Tununk Core Fragment from Irons #1, Sanpete Co. UT, Showing Silt and Sand stringers interbedded within the shale Utah during the late Cretaceous Because Richfield’s acreage is on the Western side of the Tununk play, close to where the shoreline was, there are fewer clays, and more quartz, which allows the shale to be fractured and maintain those fractures. 28

Natural Fractures eliminate the need for Hydraulic Fracturing, saving money reducing possible environmental/political issues. The Tununk member of the Mancos shale is thick, has high TOC’s, interbedded sandstones, natural fractures, and a high pressure gradient, which should yield a higher than average recovery factor. 140 feet thick 7,500 – 9,500 feet deep 7% Total Organic Carbon .46 Pressure Gradient Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Louisiana, Mississippi 200 feet thick 10,000 – 15,000 feet deep 1% - 4% Total Organic Carbon .7 Pressure Gradient 29
