"Bankruptcy Rules"), and the Court's "Administrative Order under U.S.C. Sections 105(A) and

#10922474 vlO
December 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009 (the "Interim Period"). In support of this
Application, Pepper respectfully represents as follows:
Background
1. On March 9, 2009 (the "Filing Date"), Pacific Energy Resources Ltd.,
Petroca! Acquisition Corp., Pacific Energy Alaska Holdings, LLC, Cameros Acquisition Corp.,
Pacific Energy Alaska Operating LLC, San Pedro Bay Pipeline Company, Cameros Energy, Inc.
and Gotland Oil, Inc. (collectively, the "Debtors") each filed a voluntary petition for relief
pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors have continued to manage their
businesses and properties as debtors-in-possession pursuant to Sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the
Bankruptcy Code.
2. On March 19, 2009 (the "Committee Formation Date"), the United States
Trustee appointed the Committee to represent the unsecured creditors of the Debtors pursuant to
11 U.S.C. 1102(a)(1).
3. Pursuant to Section 1103 of the Code, the Committee selected Pepper
Hamilton LLP to serve as Delaware counsel for the Committee. On April 14,2009, the
Committee filed an application with this Court for approval to employ Pepper Hamilton LLP.
4. On April 29, 2009, this Court entered an Order authorizing the Committee
to employ Pepper Hamilton LLP as Delaware counsel for the Committee, effective as of March
19, 2009, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit A.

Summary of Services Rendered and Expenses Incurred
-2
#10922474 vlO
6. Applicant has rendered services from December 1, 2009 through December
31,2009 in the amount of 39.40 hours.
7. Applicant maintains contemporaneous records of the time expended for the
professional services and expenses related thereto performed in connection with this Chapter 11
case and such records are maintained in the ordinary course of its business. These records
provide a detailed description of the services rendered and expenses incurred during the period
for which this Application is being made. A summary of Applicant's time records in the sum of
$12,091.00 is attached hereto as Exhibit B. This summary is broken down according to specific
task categories relating specifically to this Chapter 11 case. In some cases, Applicant found a
situation where the task of a professional may fit into two or more categories. In these cases,
Applicant has tried to categorize the time expended into the most appropriate category. If the
Court requires any further descriptions on these time entries, Applicant will provide additional
information.
8. Applicant believes that the post-petition services for the period December
1,2009 through December 31, 2009 are reasonably worth the sum of$12,091.00 as set forth in
the summary identified as Exhibit B. Applicant notes that these costs are customary charges made
to other firm clients in the ordinary course of its billing practice. To assist the Court in its review
of the fees sought by Applicant, Applicant has separated its time entries in Exhibit B into the
following categories:
(a) Case Administration (Total hours: 12.80, total fees $3,859.50) This
category includes time spent by Applicant attending to coordination and compliance activities in
connection with the performance ofits duties as Delaware counsel for the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.

#10922474 vlO

This category includes time spent by Applicant serving objection to sale motion, attending sale
hearing and communicating with co-counsel regarding sale status.
(c) Court Hearings (Total hours: 2.70, total fees $623.00) This category
includes time spent by Applicant preparingfor and attending hearing.

9. The attorneys who primarily worked on this case occasionally found it
necessary to consult with other attorneys in the firm on various aspects of the case. A brief
biography of each of the primary attorneys, along with a description of their areas of expertise,
are set forth in the summary identified as Exhibit C.
10. As outlined above, the attorneys who worked on this case from December
1, 2009 through December 31, 2009 have various levels of expertise. From time to time these
attorneys consulted with each other and other attorneys on different aspects of the case. It is
-4
#10922474 vlO
submitted that this is a more efficient way to run a case than to expect a single attorney to be an
expert in all applicable areas of law. If a single attorney were to attempt to run a case such as
this, the attorney would have to learn through research what other attorneys know and can tell
him based on their years of knowledge and experience.
11. Applicant requires reimbursement of costs expended December 1, 2009
through December 31, 2009 in the sum of $597.49 as set forth in the summary identified as
Exhibit D. Applicant notes that these costs are customary charges made to other firm clients in
the ordinary course of its billing practice.
12. In accordance with the factors enumerated in section 330 of the
Bankruptcy Code, it is respectfully submitted that the amount requested is fair and reasonable
given (a) the complexity of the case, (b) the time expended, (c) the nature and the extent of the
services rendered, (d) the value of such services, and (e) the costs of comparable services other
than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. Moreover, Applicant has reviewed the requirements
of Del. Bankr. LR 2016 and the Administrative Order and believes that this Application complies
with such Rule and Order.
WHEREFORE, your Applicant respectfully requests, for the period December 1,
2009 through December 31, 2009, an interim allowance be made for compensation in the amount
of$12,091.00 and actual and necessary expenses in the amount of$597.49 for a total allowance
of$12,688.29 and payment of$9,672.80 (80% of the allowed fees) and reimbursement of
$597.49 (100% of the allowed expenses) be authorized for a total payment of$10,270.29 for such
