--  On May 2, 2014, the Company announced the results of an independent
    "Economic Assessment of Blocks 13/24c and 13/25 (Bagpuss and Blofeld),
    North Sea, United Kingdom". This report issued by Deloitte LLP
    ("Deloitte") on April 30, 2014, utilized the resource and geologic
    information developed by Senergy (GB) Limited ("Senergy") on June 25,
    2013 with an effective date of May 30, 2013. (Please refer to the
    Company's press release issued on June 27, 2013 for discussion on the

    resources, the significant positive and negative factors relevant to the
    estimate of the resources.). Deloitte's economic assessment of the
    Bagpuss and Blofeld prospects indicates that, on a cumulative basis, the
    Best, Mean, and High case resource estimates are commercial under the
    assumed development, pricing, and cost scenarios, yielding after-tax
    internal rates of return of approximately 18, 28, and 51 percent,
