TWENTY-FIRST MONTHLY APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES OF PACHULSKI STANG ZIEHL & JONES LLP, AS COUNSEL TO THE DEBTORS AND DEBTORS IN POSSESSION, FOR THE PERIOD FROM NOVEMBER 1, 2010 THROUGH NOVEMBER 30, 2010 Pursuant to sections 330 and 331 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the "Bankruptcy Code"), Rule 2016 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (collectively, the "Bankruptcy Rules"), and the Court’s "Administrative Order Under 11 U.S.C. §§ 105(A) and 331 Establishing Procedures for Interim Compensation and Expense Reimbursement of Professionals and Committee Members," entered on or about April 8, 2009 (the "Administrative Order"), Pachuiski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP ("PSZ&J" or the "Firm"), counsel to the Debtors and Debtors in Possession ("Debtors"), hereby submits its Twenty-First Monthly Application for Compensation and for Reimbursement of Expenses for the Period from November 1, 2010 through November 30, 2010 (the "Application").

The Debtors in these cases, along with the last four digits of each of the Debtors’ federal tax identification number, are: Pacific Energy Resources Ltd. (3442); Petrocal Acquisition Corp. (6249); Pacific Energy Alaska Holdings, LLC (tax I.D. # not available); Cameros Acquisition Corp.

The mailing address for all of the Debtors is 111 W. Ocean Boulevard, Suite 1240, Long Beach, CA 90802.

68773-002\DOCSDE: 166375.2

By this Application PSZ&J seeks a monthly interim allowance of compensation in the amount of $21,951.00 and actual and necessary expenses in the amount of $4,051.60 for a total allowance of $26,002.60 and payment of $17,560.80 (80% of the allowed fees) and reimbursement of $4,051.60 (100% of the allowed expenses) for a total payment of $21,612.40 for the period November 1, 2010 through November 30, 2010 (the "Interim Period"). In support of this Application, PSZ&J respectfully represents as follows: Background On March 9, 2009 (the "Petition Date"), the Debtors filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors continue in possession of their properties and continues to operate and manage their business as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. A Committee of Unsecured Creditors ("Committee") was appointed on or about March 19, 2009. No trustee or examiner has been appointed in the Debtors’ chapter 11 cases. 2. The Court has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § § 157

and 1334. This is a core proceeding pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2). 3. On or about April 8, 2009, the Court entered the Administrative Order,

authorizing certain professionals ("Professionals") to submit monthly applications for interim compensation and reimbursement for expenses, pursuant to the procedures specified therein. The Administrative Order provides, among other things, that a Professional may submit monthly fee applications. If no objections are made within twenty (20) days after service of the monthly fee application the Debtors are authorized to pay the Professional eighty percent (80%) of the requested fees and one hundred percent (100%) of the requested expenses. Beginning with the

68773-002\DOCS_DE: 166375.2

2

period ending May 31, 2009, at three-month intervals, each Professional shall file and serve an interim application for allowance of the amounts sought in its monthly fee applications for that period. All fees and expenses paid are on an interim basis until final allowance by the Court. 4. The retention of PSZ&J, as co-counsel to the Debtors, was approved

effective as of the Petition Date by this Court’s "Order Under Section 327(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and Rule 2014 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and Local Rule 2014-1 Authorizing the Employment and Retention of Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones as Counsel for the Debtors and Debtors in Possession Nunc Pro Tunc to the Petition Date," entered on or about April 9, 2009 (the "Retention Order"). The Retention Order authorized PSZ&J to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary out-of-pocket expenses. PSZ&J’s APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES Compensation Paid and Its Source 5. All services for which PSZ&J requests compensation were performed for

or on behalf of the Debtors. 6. PSZ&J has received no payment and no promises for payment from any

source other than the Debtors for services rendered or to be rendered in any capacity whatsoever in connection with the matters covered by this Application. There is no agreement or understanding between PSZ&J and any other person other than the partners of PSZ&J for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in this case. PSZ&J has received payments from the Debtors during the year prior to the Petition Date in the amount of

68773-002\DOCS_DE: 166375.2

3

$692,220.42, including the Debtors’ aggregate filing fees for these cases, in connection with the preparation of initial documents and its prepetition representation of the Debtors. PSZ&J was current as of the Petition Date. Upon final reconciliation of the amount actually expended prepetition, any balance remaining from the prepetition payments to PSZ&J was credited to the Debtors and utilized as PSZ&J’s retainer to apply to postpetition fees and expenses pursuant to the compensation procedures approved by this Court and the Bankruptcy Code. Fee Statements 7. The fee statements for the Interim Period are attached hereto as Exhibit A.

These statements contain daily time logs describing the time spent by each attorney and paraprofessional during the Interim Period. To the best of PSZ&J’s knowledge, this Application complies with sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules and the Administrative Order. PSZ&J’s time reports are initially handwritten by the attorney or paralegal performing the described services. The time reports are organized on a daily basis. PSZ&J is particularly sensitive to issues of "lumping" and, unless time was spent in one time frame on a variety of different matters for a particular client, separate time entries are set forth in the time reports. PSZ&J’s charges for its professional services are based upon the time, nature, extent and value of such services and the cost of comparable services other than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. PSZ&J has reduced its charges related to any non-working "travel time" to fifty percent (50%) of PSZ&J’s standard hourly rate. To the extent it is feasible, PSZ&J professionals attempt to work during travel.

68773-002\DOCSDE: 166375.2

Actual and Necessary Expenses 8. A summary of actual and necessary expenses incurred by PSZ&J for the

Interim Period is attached hereto as part of Exhibit A. PSZ&J customarily charges $0.10 per page for photocopying expenses related to cases, such as this one, arising in Delaware. PSZ&J’s photocopying machines automatically record the number of copies made when the person that is doing the copying enters the client’s account number into a device attached to the photocopier. PSZ&J summarizes each client’s photocopying charges on a daily basis. 9. PSZ&J charges $1.00 per page for out-going facsimile transmissions.

There is no additional charge for long distance telephone calls on faxes. The charge for outgoing facsimile transmissions reflects PSZ&J’s calculation of the actual costs incurred by PSZ&J for the machines, supplies and extra labor expenses associated with sending telecopies and is reasonable in relation to the amount charged by outside vendors who provide similar services. PSZ&J does not charge the Debtors for the receipt of faxes in this case. 10. With respect to providers of on-line legal research services LEXIS

and WESTLAW), PSZ&J charges the standard usage rates these providers charge for computerized legal research. PSZ&J bills its clients the actual amounts charged by such services, with no premium. Any volume discount received by PSZ&J is passed on to the client. 11. PSZ&J believes the foregoing rates are the market rates that the majority

of law firms charge clients for such services. In addition, PSZ&J believes that such charges are in accordance with the American Bar Association’s ("ABA") guidelines, as set forth in the ABA’s Statement of Principles, dated January 12, 1995, regarding billing for disbursements and other charges.

68773-002\DOCSDE: 166375.2

Summary of Services Rendered 12. The names of the partners and associates of PSZ&J who have rendered

professional services in these cases during the Interim Period, and the paralegals and case management assistants of PSZ&J who provided services to these attorneys during the Interim Period, are set forth in the attached Exhibit A. 13. PSZ&J, by and through such persons, has prepared and assisted in the

preparation of various motions and orders submitted to the Court for consideration, advised the Debtors on a regular basis with respect to various matters in connection with the Debtors’ bankruptcy cases, and performed all necessary professional services which are described and narrated in detail below. PSZ&J’s efforts have been extensive due to the size and complexity of the Debtors’ bankruptcy cases. Summary of Services by Project 14. The services rendered by PSZ&J during the Interim Period can be grouped

into the categories set forth below. PSZ&J attempted to place the services provided in the category that best relates to such services. However, because certain services may relate to one or more categories, services pertaining to one category may in fact be included in another category. These services performed, by categories, are generally described below, with a more detailed identification of the actual services provided set forth on the attached Exhibit A. Exhibit A identifies the attorneys and paraprofessionals who rendered services relating to each category, along with the number of hours for each individual and the total compensation sought for each category.
