Loan Financing

The Company has entered into short-term loan agreements with certain lenders. These unsecured loans in the principal amount of $950,000 (the "Loans") mature and will be repayable on January 26, 2013 and accrue simple interest at a rate of 10% per annum.

One of the lenders is Keith Hill who is a related party and the loan transaction with Mr. Hill (the "Hill Loan") is a related party transaction. However, the directors of the Company, all of whom are independent in the respect of the Hill Loan, have determined that the terms and conditions of the Hill Loan are fair and reasonable and in the best interests of the Company, and have unanimously approved the Hill Loan. In addition, the directors of the Company have determined that the Hill Loan is exempted from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements.

The Company will use the proceeds of the Loans to fund a portion of the ongoing work over of the Tartaruga wells.

Loan Note Extensions

The Company has negotiated the extension of the maturity date of all currently outstanding unsecured loans and convertible promissory notes in the aggregate amount C$3,300,000 to January 26, 2013. No additional consideration was payable in respect of the extensions.

Tartaruga Operations

The Company announces that production on the Tartaruga field has been suspended due to the failure of the recently installed electric submersible pumping unit installed as part of the work over of development well 7-TTG-1DP-SES. A new pump has been procured by the operator UP Petroleo Brasil Ltda. and a rig is being moved onto location to replace this pump. This operation is expected to be completed by the middle of February 2013.

The Company has earned the right to request a 37.5% working interest in the Tartaruga field. The assignment of this working interest is subject to several conditions, including approval from the consortium members and the Agencia Nacional do Petroleo, Gas Natural e Biocombustiveis ("ANP"). The Company is awaiting receipt of these approvals.

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
