    • Key Points o  Victoria Oil & Gas Plc (VOG) is emerging as a significant player in natural gas production o  Logbaba gas and condensate field in Douala, Cameroon, is the only onshore gas discovery in the country o  The West Medvezhye (West Med) project in Siberia has independently estimated recoverable prospective resources of over 5 Tcf of gas o  Logbaba is poised to deliver first cash flows and profits for VOG o  Over 600 feet of gross sandstone pay in two wells o  In-principal agreements signed with industrial customers o  First revenues from Logbaba targeted in Q4 20103
    • Logbaba: First Mover Advantage o  Government plans announced to triple Cameroon power generation capacity in the next 10 years, much of which could be generated by gas o  The Logbaba field represents a unique opportunity to dominate the nascent natural gas market in Cameroon o  Competitive advantages:   The field lies beneath the major industrial city in the Central African Region   Agreements for gas off-take already signed with industrial customers in Douala   The only onshore gas discovery in the country   All facilities (drilling, processing and pipeline) will be operated by VOG   First gas Q4 2010 o  Plans announced to triple Cameroon power generation in the next 10 years4
    • Cameroon: Heart of Central Africa o  Cameroon is a member of the ECCAS Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) o  Members share trade markets and currency o  Douala is the deep-water port and industrial heart of the region o  Major companies such as Guinness and Nestle have facilities there o  Rio Tinto Alcan have a major aluminium smelter at Edea close to Douala o  Douala handles around 95% of import/exports for Cameroon, Chad and CAR o  Logbaba is located in the eastern suburbs of Douala5
    • Cameroon Gas: No Competition o  Logbaba remains the only onshore natural gas discovery in the country o  Due to Logbaba’s position and development, VOG also has the opportunity to beat larger operators in feeding new power projects o  Perenco’s offshore Sanaga Sud field yet to come into development despite location next to Kribi power station o  Limbe power station, north of Douala, relies solely on liquid fuels despite Total’s offshore discoveries nearby6
    • Logbaba: Summary Economics Management Forecasts Prices: Post-Tax NPV net to VOG Gas price Industrial Gas $16/mmbtu ($MM) 10% 15% IRR Industrial Power $16/mmbtu Industrial to gas & power(1) 405 271 64% Grid Power(5) $6.5/mmbtu Plus mini Power (2) 409 274 64% Plus LNG(3) 681 448 73% LNG $12/mmbtu Plus large power(4) 819 538 75% Condensate Limbe Refinery $75/bbl Fiscal Terms: Scenario 4 Reserves & Ratios Net to VOG Corporate tax 38.5% $MM $/boe Capex 1055 $9.6 Government Royalty 8.0% Opex 393 $3.6 Royalty to Rodeo Resources 1.2% Royalty to Cameroon 6.7% Reserves 578 Bcf Holdings R/P ratio 19 Years Scenarios (1) 8.5 mmcfd supplied for industrial customers for gas & power rising to 40mmcfd by 2013 (2) Case 1, plus VOG 10MW IPP - (incremental 2mmcfd) to be connected to the power grid (3) As in case 2 but VOG new LNG facility with incremental demand of 40mmcfd on stream by 2013 (4) As in case 3 but VOG supplying power to new IPP 200MW facility (incremental 40mmcfd) by 2013 (5) Gas for power generation to be connected to the grid has been priced at the approximate cost of generation until further negotiation with ARSEL – the state regulator7
    • Early Cash Flow – Captive Market •  Gas price is fixed at $16/MMBtu for first 5 years •  20 year exclusive gas supply agreements •  Base Case Payback in 2011 •  Low cost, first mover advantage for a captive market with severe power disruption and energy constraints •  Possible expansion in the future (2013 onwards) with mini-LNG & IPP options to markets further afield8
    • Logbaba: Exceptional Progress Winter 2008 Spring 2009 Autumn 2009 Summer 20099
    • Logbaba: Well La-105 Drilling o  La-105 was drilled to a total depth of 8,920 feet o  Multiple gas-bearing sands with over 300 feet of gross pay between 1,836 and 2,540 m correlating to La-103 o  La-105 was completed as a production well o  Logbaba wells are more complex and difficult to control than predicted o  Chronic lack of oil and gas infrastructure o  Drilling progress being far slower than expected due to the need for heavier mud10 weights.
    • Logbaba: Encouraging Early Results Due to encouraging LWD GR/Res Log from La-105 initial results, significant additional rig-time and expenditure was devoted to subsurface data acquisition to better evaluate the reservoir rock and fluid properties. Top Logbaba Fm at 1,735m TVDRKB This and the Sandstone application of latest technology are enabling VOG to Sandstone realise the true reservoir and well Sandstone potential at Logbaba. Sandstone11
    • Logbaba: Well La-105 Testing o  Multiple pay zones tested at La-105 Testing depths between 7,005 - 8,500 feet. o  Rates between 11 - 56 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) of natural gas and 210 - 1,000 barrels per day of condensate. Flowing wellhead pressures varied between 2,750 - 4,552 psi. o  The Upper Logbaba A through C sands, although indicated as the best quality hydrocarbon-bearing sands encountered in the well logs, were not tested as the well indicated more than sufficient production capacity to meet12 initial gas demand of 8 MMscf/d.
    • Logbaba: Well La-106 – Initial Data   Drilled deeper than planned to 10509 ft due to the better than expected observed sand quality in the Lower Logbaba sections.   Multiple gas-bearing sands encountered between 5482 feet and 10400 feet (measured depth) - Over 300 feet of gross pay Top most sand starts at 5482 ft (1671m) Example of deeper sand 9100 ft (2773m)13
    • Logbaba: Further Exploration o  90% of the block remains Passive Seismic Survey unexplored o  In late 2009, a passive seismic survey was commissioned o  Passive seismic is a direct hydrocarbon indicator o  Significant new structure 4 km north of the current well sites o  Best location on the current structure is as yet undrilled o  The new accumulations lie outside the area evaluated by RPS14
    • Vertically Integrated Strategy Pipeline Route VOG plans to install and commission a gas processing facility and its own gas pipeline to the industrial customers Approx 85% of industrial market within 10km Wells 105+106 and processing facility15
