TSX.V: ADLStrategy – Shallow Water, Large Targets Capitalizing on Israel’s Immediate Demand for O&GLower Risk Offshore Drilling • Lower drilling costs vs. competitive deep water exploration in the region • Operate at less than 1/3 the cost of deep water rigs drilling in Israeli watersHigh Resource Potential – Oil and Gas • Strategic selection of licenses with proven, prior analogous production and exploration • 2D and now 3D seismic has already been completed on Gabriella, Yitzhak, SamuelLower Infrastructure Costs – Near Market • Gas targets on blocks are close to current pipeline infrastructure • Deliveries to market has less operational, environmental & financial risk vs. deep water targets. Delivery to market before deep water developments is achievableEconomic Focus • Oil from shallow well locations are more economically viable than deep water wells • Deep water gas have higher infrastructure costs, high pressure & highly technical delivery parameters & long time delivery market 17

  27. 27. TSX.V: ADL Appendix 4 Current Oil & Gas Production Israel• Heletz Oil Field - During the 1950’s, Israel discovered this on-shore field. Over the past 50 years it has produced cumulative 20 million barrels of Oil. It is essentially fully depleted.• Yam Tetis Field - The country’s only current domestic gas source. The Ministry of Infrastructure expects it to be fully depleted in the next decade. The field’s .85 TCF was the largest find in the country, before Tamar.• EMG Consortium - An agreement for gas from Egypt to Israel provides for the sale of 1.7 billion cubic meters of gas per year, representing 20% of Israeli electricity current consumption ($5.50 - $5.75) per MMBt.Israel Recent Discoveries• Tamar (January 2009). Delek/Noble Energy (NYSE: NBL) Consortium made a significant discovery of natural gas (approx. 8.4 TCF) off Haifa. This is a world-class discovery and as such has created increased drilling activity and significant investor interest in the region.• Dalit (March 2009). Following Tamar, a second natural gas discovery offshore Israel identified more than 110 feet of net pay approx. 0.5 TCF). With the successes at Tamar and Dalit, a potentially substantial new resource basin with large remaining exploration potential opened up. Additional 3D in the area in the second half of 2009 with potential for additional targets. Dalit is situated approx. 55 km northwest of Gabriella and 45km northwest of Yitzhak.• Leviathan (December 2010). Nobel recently announced the Leviathan gas discovery, West of Tamar, estimated at over 16 TCF of gas. The well halted for additional liner casing as it is being deepened for potential deeper oil targets. Leviathan is the largest gas discovery ever in Israel, and the largest offshore gas discovery in the world over the past decade.• Mari – B (Production in 2003) First meaningful discovery was made in 1999, in the Yam Tethys field, which comprises the “Mari B” and “Noa” reserves. Located off Israel’s southern coast, the field originally had estimated reserves of perhaps 35bcm or 1.24 TCF. Gas started flowing in 2004 (via a 42km pipeline to the southern coastal town of Ashdod) and annual production capacity is currently around 3.6 BCM, or 60% of Israel’s natural gas requirements. In December 2010, Mari B had remaining reserves of 10.4 BCM. Mari B is expected to be depleted in 2013. 27
