NZEC Corporate Presentation October 2011

  1. 1. New Zealand Energy Corp.Corporate Presentation NewZealandEnergy.comOctober 2011 TSX‐V: NZ
  2. 2. Forward‐looking Statements New Zealand Energy Corp.This presentation contains forward‐looking information and forward‐looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities legislation (collectively “forward‐looking statements”).The use of any of the words “anticipate”, “continue”, “estimate”, “expect”, “may”, “will”, “project”, “propose”, “should”, “believe” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward‐looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated insuch forward‐looking statements. The Corporation believes the expectations reflected in those forward‐looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that theseexpectations will prove to be correct. Such forward‐looking statements included in the presentation should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date of thepresentation. The presentation contains forward‐looking statements pertaining to the following: business strategy, strength and focus; proposed expenditures under “Use of Proceeds”; thegranting of regulatory approvals; the timing for receipt of regulatory approvals; the resource potential of the Properties; the estimated quantity and quality of the Corporation’s oil andnatural gas resources; projections of market prices and costs and the related sensitivity of distributions; supply and demand for oil and natural gas; expectations regarding the ability to raisecapital and to continually add to resources through acquisitions and development; treatment under governmental regulatory regimes and tax laws, and capital expenditure programs;expectations with respect to the Corporation’s future working capital position; capital expenditure programs; and abandonment and reclamation costs. With respect to forward‐lookingstatements contained in the presentation, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: future commodity prices; the Corporation’s ability to obtain qualified staff andequipment in a timely and cost‐efficient manner; the impact of any changes in New Zealand law; the regulatory framework governing royalties, taxes and environmental matters in NewZealand and any other jurisdictions in which the Corporation may conduct its business in the future; the ability of the Corporations subsidiaries to obtain subsequent mining permits, accessrights in respect of land and resource and environmental consents; the recoverability of the Corporation’s crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids resources; the applicability oftechnologies for recovery and production of the Corporation’s oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids resources; the Corporation’s future production levels; the Corporation’s ability tomarket crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids production; future development plans for the Corporation’s assets unfolding as currently envisioned; future capital expenditures to bemade by the Corporation; future cash flows from production meeting the expectations stated herein; future sources of funding for the Corporation’s capital program; the Corporation’sfuture debt levels; geological and engineering estimates in respect of the Corporation’s resources; the geography of the areas in which the Corporation is exploring; the intentions of theCorporation’s board with respect to the executive compensation plans and corporate governance programs described herein; the impact of increasing competition on the Corporation; andthe Corporation’s ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms, or at all. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward‐looking statements as a result of therisk factors set forth below and elsewhere in the presentation: the speculative nature of exploration, appraisal and development of oil and natural gas properties; uncertainties associatedwith estimating oil and natural gas resources; changes in the cost of operations, including cots of extracting and delivering oil and natural gas to market, that affect potential profitability ofoil and natural gas exploration; operating hazards and risks inherent in oil and natural gas operations; volatility in market prices for oil and natural gas; market conditions that prevent theCorporation from raising the funds necessary for exploration and development on acceptable terms or at all; global financial market events that cause significant volatility in commodityprices; unexpected costs or liabilities for environmental matters; competition for, among other things, capital, acquisitions of resources, skilled personnel, and access to equipment andservices required for exploration, development and production; changes in exchange rates, laws of New Zealand or laws of Canada affecting foreign trade, taxation and investment; failureto realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions; and the other factors discussed under “Risk Factors”. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing lists of factors are not exhaustive. Thematerial factors and assumptions used in developing the forward‐looking statements are based on the assumptions contained in the Eltham Report, Castlepoint Report, Ranui Report andEast Cape Report (as those terms are defined in the preliminary prospectus), including future commodity prices, costs and expected inflation, as well as the Corporation’s planned capitalexpenditure program, estimated drilling success rates and other prospects. Due to the nature of the oil and natural gas industry, budgets are regularly reviewed in light of the success of theexpenditures and other opportunities, which may become available to the Corporation. Accordingly, while the Corporation anticipates that it will have the ability to spend the fundsavailable to it as stated in the presentation, there may be circumstances where, for sound business reasons, a reallocation of funds may be prudent. Statements relating to “resources” aredeemed to be forward‐looking statements, as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the resources described can be profitably produced inthe future. The forward‐looking statements contained in the presentation are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement. Except as required under applicable securities laws, theCorporation does not undertake or assume any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward‐looking statements. None of the Corporation’s securities have been or will be registeredunder the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and the Corporation’s securities may not be offered or sold in the UnitedStates unless registered or exempt from such registration requirements. This presentation does not constitute an offer of securities in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which suchan offer would be unlawful. 2

  30. 30. Cautionary Note Regarding Resource Estimates New Zealand Energy Corp.A prospective resource is defined as those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date,to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations by application of futuredevelopment projects. Prospective resources have both an associated chance of discovery and achance of development. Prospective resources are further subdivided in accordance with thelevel of certainty associated with recoverable estimates assuming their discovery anddevelopment and may be sub‐classified based on project maturity. There is no certainty that anyportion of the resources will be discovered. If discovered, there is no certainty that it will becommercially viable to produce any portion of the resources. 30
