Forward-Looking Statements

All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include forecasts for production, cash flow, capital expenditures and debt levels and are based on estimates for commodity prices, reservoir performance, drilling performance and industry conditions including availability of services and weather. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors, some of which are b hi h beyond R k E d Rock Energy's control, th t may cause actual results t diff ' t l that t l lt to differ materially from a conclusion, forecast or projection in such forward-looking statements. Rock Energy believes that the expectations reflected in those forwardlooking statements are reasonable at the time made but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in, or incorporated by reference into, this presentation should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date of such information, as the case may be, and may be superseded by subsequent events. Rock Energy does not intend, and does not assume any obligation, to update these forward-looking statements whether as a result of information, future events or otherwise.

Rock's Go Forward Strategy: Oil Focused



Focus heavy OIL exploration and development programs in two core areas: Plains Southwest Saskatchewan initiatives. infrastructure, while drilling 30-50

and Southwest Saskatchewan. Plains generates cash flow to support d S th tS k t h wells per year within cash flow.

Find resource type plays that are scalable and repeatable where Rock can control

Focus on shallower less expensive wells during the first few years, then move into deeper, more expensive plays as cash flow grows. Explore new technology to increase

from known pools (radial drilling, water flooding, SP flooding, etc.)

Rock's Corporate Goals


Grow Rock to of oil production.

6,000-10,000 bpd with a strong foundation


Review gas exploration plays when additional export capacity will allow Canadian gas to attract world prices. Rock's oil-focused production and cash flow will support aggressive gas development scenarios.
