  1. 1. Americas Petrogas Inc. Corporate Presentation October, 2013 TSXV: BOE
  2. 2. Forward Looking Statement Certain statements, table and graphs throughout this presentation may contain “forward-looking statements” or “forward looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. Forward-looking statements or information in this presentation include, but are not limited to, statements, tables and graphs (collectively “statements”) with respect to: future economic performance; projected production, sales, reserves and growth estimates for crude oil, natural gas, NGLs and liquids as well as potash, brine and other minerals and mineral resources; projections made on a per share basis; the Company’s ability to achieve its production and sales guidance; the potential production, scalability and upside associated with resource plays; the potential future success, growth, timing and production for its various properties; the Company’s projections with respect to its ability to develop resource plays and the percentage of production from resource plays in the future; projections of the Company’s reserves; projected capital costs and risks associated with respect to API’s various regions, assets and initiatives; projected future drilling costs, non-fuel operation costs, potential dispositions of assets, including anticipated proceeds there from, the use of such proceeds and the dates for receipt thereof; projections of future drilling inventories and plans therefor; anticipated currency exchange rates; projected growth rates capable of being sustained from the Company’s asset base in the future; projections of the potential future price and market for petroleum, natural gas, potash and other minerals; and reference to potential exploration and the timing and success thereof; the impact of general economic conditions; industry conditions; changes in laws and regulations including the adoption of new environmental laws and regulations and changes in how they are interpreted and enforced; fluctuations in commodity prices and foreign exchange and interest rates; stock market volatility and market valuations; volatility in market prices for oil and natural gas; liabilities inherent in oil and natural gas operations; uncertainties associated with estimating oil and natural gas reserves; competition for, among other things, capital, acquisitions, of reserves, undeveloped lands and skilled personnel; incorrect assessments of the value of acquisitions; changes in income tax laws or changes in tax laws and incentive programs relating to the oil and gas industry; geological, technical, drilling and processing problems and other difficulties in producing petroleum reserves; and obtaining required approvals of regulatory authorities You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information, as there can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which it is based will occur. By its nature, forward-looking information involves numerous assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forwardlooking statements will not occur. Although the Company believes that the expectations represented by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Accordingly, the Company cautions that events or circumstances could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted. Statements relating to “reserves” or “resources” or “resource potential” are deemed to be forward-looking statements, as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions that the resources and reserves and resource potential described exist in the quantities predicted or estimated, and can be profitably produced in the future. You are further cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements contained in this presentation, which are made as of the date hereof, and except as required by applicable law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The forward-looking statements contained in this presentation are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement. All oil and gas reserve information is based on the statement of reserves data and other oil and gas information filed by Americas Petrogas Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2012, a copy which can be found on Any references in this presentation to test rates, flow rates, initial test or production rates, and/or early production rates are useful in confirming the presence of hydrocarbons; however, such rates are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance of ultimate recovery. Such rates may also include recovered “frac” fluids used in well completion stimulation. Readers are cautioned not to place reliance on such rates in calculating the aggregate production for the Company. In accordance with Canadian practice, reserve and similar volumes and production volumes and revenues are reported on a gross basis, before deduction of royalties, unless otherwise stated. Where applicable, natural gas has been converted to barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") based on 6 Mcf:1 BOE. The BOE rate is based on an energy equivalent conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalent at the wellhead. Use of BOE in isolation may be misleading. The Company uses terms in this presentation, such as "resource potential" "resource base," "potential resource," "resource estimates," "net resources," "net potential recoverable resource," and similar terms that are not defined in the COGE Handbook. "Resource potential," "resource base," "potential resource" "resource estimates," "net resources," "net potential recoverable resource," and other such terms do not take into account the certainty of resource recovery, which is contingent on exploration success, technical improvements in drilling access, commerciality and other factors, and are therefore not indicative of expected future resource recovery and should not be relied upon. Certain information in this presentation may constitute "analogous information" as defined in NI 51-101, including, but not limited to, the reservoir data, resource estimates, production and decline rates and economics information relating to the areas in geographical proximity to exploratory lands held by the Company or other shale plays. Such information has been obtained from government sources, regulatory agencies or other industry participants. Management of the Company believes the information is relevant as it helps to define the reservoir characteristics and the reserves and production potential in which the Company holds an interest. Such information includes resource estimates which are not derived from the COGE Handbook and have therefore not been prepared in accordance with NI 51- 101. The Company is also unable to confirm that the analogous information was prepared by a qualified reserves evaluator or auditor. Such information is not an estimate of the resources attributable to lands held or to be held by the Company and there is no certainty that the reservoir data, resource estimates, production and decline rates and economics information for the lands held by the Company will be similar to the information presented herein. The reader is cautioned that the data relied upon by the Company may be in error and/or may prove not to be analogous to the lands be held by the Company. 2

  15. 15. Americas Petrogas Shale Resources Ryder Scott Company Report dated June 30, 2013 estimated: Total Petroleum Initially In Place (TPIIP) (Billion BOE) Americas Petrogas Shale Acreage (1.2 Million Net Acres) Best Case P50 Recoverable (Billion BOE) 56.1 8.3 (1) Based on 9 Blocks, 1.2 million net acres (1.6mm gross). Data from logs, cores, rock samples, geomechanical, geochemical, 2D and 3D seismic, other well data and testing data. These volumes include arithmetic sums of multiple estimates, which statistical principles indicate may be misleading as to volumes that may actually be recovered. Readers should give attention to the estimates of individual classes of resources and appreciate the differing probabilities of recovery associated with each class. Ryder Scott’s report did not include these arithmetic summations. Please see next slide and news release dated August 21, 2013 for complete disclosures 15
  16. 16. Americas Petrogas Shale Resources Disclosure of Resources • The Resource Report has been prepared in accordance with the standards contained in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (the "COGEH") and National Instrument 51- 101 – Standards for Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities of the Canadian Securities Administrators ("NI 51-101"). The Resource Report provides a summary of the oil, liquids & natural gas resources associated with nine of Americas Petrogas' blocks in the Neuquén Basin, Argentina as at June 30, 2013. Americas Petrogas engaged Ryder Scott to provide evaluations of its contingent and prospective recoverable resources over the nine blocks with a focus on the Vaca Muerta shale, Agrio shale and Los Molles shale formations. • The Resource Report is based on certain factual data supplied by the Company and Ryder Scott's opinion of reasonable practice in the industry. The extent and character of ownership and all factual data pertaining to the Company's properties and contracts (except for certain information available in the public domain) were supplied by the Company to Ryder Scott and accepted without any further investigation. Ryder Scott accepted this data as presented and neither title searches nor field inspections were conducted. The recovery and resources estimates for Americas Petrogas’ properties described herein are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated resources will be recovered. The actual resources for Americas Petrogas’ properties may be greater or less than those calculated. • Ryder Scott has also identified certain contingencies in order to convert the contingent recoverable resources described herein and in the Resource Report into developed reserves. These contingencies are specific to each formation and are related to the maturity of these projects and commercialization contingencies. There are no commercially productive analog fields in this area of the basin to establish expected production rates and recovery efficiencies at this time. There may be a risk that accumulations containing contingent resources may not achieve commercial production. • Contingencies in the Neuquén Basin which must be overcome to enable the classification of contingent resources as reserves include economic, access to significant capital resources, regulatory, market, facilities and additional infrastructure, corporate commitment and political risks. Corporate commitment will be significantly influenced by initial drilling results of both vertical and horizontal wells and the results of exploration and development activities of the Company and others in the area. As with any resource estimates, the evaluation will change over time as new information becomes available. • The estimate of contingent resources has not been adjusted for risk based on the chance of development. The contingent resources estimates for the Neuquén Basin involve a number of assumptions. The Agrio, Vaca Muerta and Los Molles unconventional resource plays in the Neuquén Basin are still in the early stages of evaluation and appraisal. It currently remains uncertain which development technologies (vertical or horizontal wells, number and size of fracture stimulations, etc.), if any, will be employed to efficiently develop these resources. Well test results to date from the formations have not defined which reservoir properties (clay volume, porosity, saturation, carbonate/clastic ratio, presence of natural fractures, etc.), if any, can predict whether well performance across an area can be expected to be “similar”. A limited amount of production information is available for Vaca Muerta completions while none is available for the Agrio or Los Molles. Due to these uncertainties, contingent resources are only attributed to a limited number of vertical appraisal/development wells adjacent to those wells that have demonstrated the existence of moveable hydrocarbons through flow test and other wells on the concession with a similar log character. Vertical development wells were assumed for estimating contingent resources given that there is insufficient performance history on the performance of horizontal wells. Since most of the concession area has not been tested by drilling, the resource volumes away from the well control have been considered prospective resources. • Positive factors relevant to the contingent resource estimates include the fact that minor production from the Vaca Muerta has occurred in conventional wells in many parts of the basin, the unconventional shale oil and shale gas potential of the Vaca Muerta has been the focus of significant appraisal drilling by multiple operators in the basin over the last several years, there is significant infrastructure that may be accessible in certain parts of the Neuquén Basin, logs and other data from historical wells which have penetrated the Vaca Muerta formation, and the fact that the Company has drilled, logged and acquired additional information in three wells targeting this unconventional potential in the Vaca Muerta; however, these wells are in various stages of evaluation. Negative factors and uncertainties associated with recovery of the Neuquén Basin resources include, but are not limited to, the lack of long-term shale oil and shale gas production history over the majority of the Neuquén Basin, lack of infrastructure in some locations, potential for variations in the quality of the Vaca Muerta formation where minimal well data currently exists, access to the substantial amount of capital which would be required to develop the resources, low commodity prices that would curtail the economics of development and the future performance of wells, regulatory approvals and/or changes to laws, access to the required services at the appropriate cost and topographic or surface restrictions. Prospective resources have both an associated chance of discovery (geological chance of success) and a chance of development. Please see news release dated August 22, 2013 for complete disclosures 16
