  1. 1. Oilbarrel Conference 1 April 2009
  2. 2. The Turnaround Strong exploration base; 1 Billion BOE resources in FSU New focus on Africa (acquisitions and options) Cameroon Logbaba project will be the significant driver of the turnaround: Capacity to turn VOG into a profitable company with first commercial deliveries expected by 1H 2010 Net 2P of 65Bcf attributed to only a tiny portion of the licence, with significant upside All wells drilled penetrated multiple gas reservoirs with high flow rates, some over 60Mmcf/d Focus on production (revenue) in Africa complements FSU long-term exploration/appraisal potential2
  3. 3. Corporate Snapshot Background Share Structure Noor Listed on AIM in July Petroleum (18%) 2004 Free Float (46%) Completed the acquisition Management (14%) of Logbaba gas field in Cameroon in December Hydrocarbons 2008 Tech.

  4. 4. A Global Footprint VOG is building a presence in highly prospective hydrocarbon regions4
  5. 5. Operational Structure Board of Directors Executive Management Team Blackwatch Petroleum London / Houston Services African Operations Kazakh Operations Russian Operations Development of Technical office in Main office to be Logbaba field to be Almaty, the moved to Orenburg run from existing commercial centre to facilitate pursuit office in Douala of Kazakhstan of opportunities in the region5
  6. 6. Logbaba, Cameroon Bramlin’s key asset is a farm-in for 60% of the Logbaba natural gas and condensate project in Cameroon Logbaba is located in the northern Douala Basin within the eastern suburbs of Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon Four wells were drilled in the 1950s, all encountering gas – three were tested at Logbaba between 12Mmcf/d and Licence area 62Mmcf/d6
  7. 7. Logbaba Reserves and Valuation RPS Energy Competent Person’s Report Net Attributable Reserves and Resources 1P 2P 3P Total Liquids Mmbbl 0.28 2.35 4.51 Natural Gas Bcf 7.92 64.53 123.91 Total Mmboe 1.71 13.97 26.81 NPV valuation at 10% $Mm 18.17 168.65 412.16 RPS Energy undertook an evaluation of limited section of the Logbaba field in July 2008 Using the data provided, they determined 14Mmboe of 2P reserves with an RPS review area (6km2): NPV10 valuation of 10% of block $169Mm7
  8. 8. Logbaba Development Plan PHASE 1: Gas production to serve existing contracts Drill and test a twin to Well 104 down to 10,000 ft Production expected to be min. 12Mmcf/d against current local industrial demand of 8Mmcf/d Install surface facilities 12Mmcf/d capacity gas processing facility 15 km, 10” pipeline to the industrial users Sell gas to industrial market in Douala Letters of intent already signed with potential customers for a total of 8Mmcf/d at an indicative price of $16/mcf A study by Tradex in partnership with SNH indicates initial demand increasing to over 25MMcf/d within 5 years PHASE 2: Gas to additional clients and swing production Drill second well to increase production to meet expected industrial demand of >25Mmcf/d8 Provide swing production for users and new consumers
  9. 9. Cameroon Gas Market 10-Yr Gas Demand Forecast Most fuels currently imported 70,000 Power Load VOG has signed gas off-take Industrial Load 60,000 agreements and letters of intent for 8Mmcf/d 50,000 Gas Demand (mcf/d) The indicative price is set at $16/MmBTU ($15/mcf) 40,000 A study by Tradex estimates 30,000 demand to increase to 25Mmcf/d within 5 years 20,000 A gas-fired power station 10,000 could initially increase demand by up to 25Mmcf/d 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Source: Tradex, Company estimates9
  10. 10. Exploration Potential The Logbaba project is complemented by VOG’s portfolio of exploration options in Africa and assets in the FSU offering significant upside potential West Medvezhye in Siberia has independently assessed prospective resources of over 1.1Bnboe of gas, condensate and light oil for the 1,220km2 licence area First discovery well was completed in late 2007 Field located in the largest gas producing region on Earth In September 2008, VOG acquired an option to acquire Falcon Petroleum, an E&P company with PSAs over 45,000km2 in Ethiopia and Mali Virgin exploration territory, but with good geological leads and oil seeps10
  11. 11. West Medvezhye, Russia West Med lies adjacent to the super-giant Medvezhye field and about 120km from Urengoy, currently the world’s largest gas and gas condensate field VOG has successfully West Med completed a passive seismic survey over an area surrounding discovery Well 103 The results of the survey will be correlated to the existing subsurface interpretation to confirm the location of the next well to be drilled in 2010/11 Source: Merrill Lynch11
  12. 12. Kemerkol, Kazakhstan The Kemerkol project has State-classified oil reserves and resources of: C1 8.7 Mmbbl C2 26.3 Mmbbl C3 25.1 Mmbbl Production from the field is temporarily suspended following illegitimate ownership dispute In March 2009 Kazakh General Prosecutor has sent a letter of protest to the highest court in Atyrau supporting VOG Judgement won against the former owner in High Court VOG preparing $30M12 damages claim
  13. 13. Falcon Petroleum, Mali and Ethiopia VOG has signed a 12 month option to acquire the assets of Falcon Petroleum Falcon has a 50% interest in the PSA for Block 17 in Mali and 90% of PSA over Blocks Ab1, Ab4 and Ab7 in the Blue Nile Basin in Ethiopia Total acreage covers over 45,000km2 Logbaba13
  14. 14. In Summary Logbaba represents proven reserves and fast-track cash flow generation from a captive market with significant expansion potential Positioning in Cameroon power generation market can transform VOG into the premier energy supplier in the region Exposure to huge hydrocarbon potential of the FSU still of primary importance Technical management greatly enhanced through new appointments and assumption of existing Bramlin team Continuing financial and strategic support of Noor Petroleum adds significant advantage during economic instability14
