December 23, 2010 (the “Fee Period”). In support of this Final Application, Steptoe respectfully represents as follows: Background 1. 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 continue to operate and manage their businesses as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. No trustee or examiner was 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 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). 4. 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 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. 5. Pursuant to Section 1103 of the Code, the Committee selected Steptoe to

serve as counsel for the Committee. On April 13, 2009, the Committee filed an application with this Court seeking approval to employ Steptoe (Dkt. No. 185).

No. 261), entered on or about May 1, 2009 (the “Retention Order”). The Retention Order authorized Steptoe to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary outof-pocket expenses. 7. On December 15, 2010, the Court entered the Order Approving

Modifications to First Amended Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation for Pacific Energy Resources Ltd., et al. (the “Plan”) (Dkt. No. 2084). 8. A plan of liquidation, with an Effective Date of December 23, 2010, has

been confirmed in these cases. Steptoe’s Summary of Services Rendered and Expenses Incurred Monthly Fee Applications Covered Herein 9. Steptoe’s twenty-two (22) monthly fee applications and seven (7)

quarterly fee applications (“Quarterly Fee Applications”) for the periods March 19, 2009 through December 23, 2010 have been filed and served pursuant to the Administrative Order. Attached hereto as Exhibits A through G are copies of the monthly fee applications filed by Steptoe in the Debtors’ cases, which have not yet been approved by the Court through approval of a Quarterly Fee Application. 10. The monthly fee applications covered by this Final Application contain

detailed daily time logs describing the actual and necessary services provided by Steptoe during the Fee Period as well as other detailed information required to be included in the fee applications. 11. The full scope of the services provided and the related expenses incurred

are fully described in the monthly fee applications for the Fee Period that already have been filed with the Court.

CC-242485.6

12.

At all relevant times, Steptoe has been a disinterested person as that term

is defined in § 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and has not represented or held an interest adverse to the interests of the Committee or the Debtors’ estates. 13. All services for which Steptoe requests compensation were performed for

or on behalf of the Committee and not on behalf of any creditor or other person. 14. Steptoe has received no payment and no promises for payment from any

source for services rendered or to be rendered in any capacity whatsoever in connection with the matters covered by this Final Application. There is no agreement or understanding between Steptoe and any other person other than the partners of Steptoe for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in this case. Steptoe has received payments totaling $849,982.54 from the Debtors’ estates to date. 15. Steptoe has prepared and assisted in the preparation of various motions,

objections and orders submitted to the Court for consideration, advised the Committee on a regular basis with respect to various matters in connection with the Debtors’ bankruptcy cases, and performed all necessary professional services for the Committee as required. 16. In accordance with the factors enumerated in section 330 of the

Bankruptcy Code, it is respectfully submitted that the fees and costs incurred by Steptoe are fair and reasonable given (a) the complexity of the case, (b) the time expended, (c) the nature and 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, Steptoe has reviewed the requirements of Rule 2016-2 of the Local Bankruptcy Rules of Procedure and the Administrative Order and believes that this Final Application complies with such Rule and Order Final Requested Relief 17.

reimbursement of $0.00 (100% of the allowed expenses) for a total payment of $10,766.40 for the period June 1, 2010 through June 30, 2010 (the “Interim Period”). In support of this Application, Steptoe respectfully represents as follows: Background 1. 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 continue to operate and manage their businesses as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. The 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 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 Steptoe, as counsel to the Committee, was approved

effective as of March 19, 2009, by this Court’s Order Authorizing and Approving the Employment of Steptoe & Johnson LLP as Counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Pacific Energy Resources Ltd., et al., Nunc Pro Tunc to March 19, 2009 (Dkt. No. 261), entered on or about May 1, 2009 (the “Retention Order”). The Retention Order authorized

Doc. # CC-230758 v.1

Steptoe to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary outof-pocket expenses. STEPTOE’S APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES Compensation Paid and Its Source 5. All services for which Steptoe requests compensation were performed for

or on behalf of the Committee. 6. Steptoe has received no payment and no promises for payment from any

source 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 Steptoe and any other person other than the partners of Steptoe for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in this case. Steptoe has received payments totaling $761,171.79 from the Debtors’ estates to date. Fee Statement 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 Steptoe’s knowledge, this Application complies with sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules and the Administrative Order. Steptoe 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. Steptoe has reduced its charges related to any non-working “travel time” to fifty percent (50%) of Steptoe’s standard hourly rate. To the extent it is feasible; Steptoe professionals attempt to work during travel. Actual and Necessary Expenses 8. A summary of actual and necessary expenses incurred by Steptoe for the

Interim Period is attached hereto as part of Exhibit A. Steptoe customarily charges $0.10 per page for photocopying expenses related to cases, such as this one. Steptoe’s photocopying

7

Doc. # CC-230758 v.1

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. Steptoe summarizes each client’s photocopying charges on a daily basis. 9. Steptoe 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 Steptoe’s calculation of the actual costs incurred by Steptoe 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. Steptoe does not charge the Debtors for the receipt of faxes in this case. 10. With respect to providers of on-line legal research services (e.g., LEXIS

and WESTLAW), Steptoe charges the standard usage rates these providers charge for computerized legal research. Steptoe bills its clients the actual amounts charged by such

services, with no premium. Any volume discount received by Steptoe is passed on to the client. Summary of Services Rendered 11. The names of the partners and associates of Steptoe who have rendered

professional services in these cases during the Interim Period, and the paralegals and case management assistants of Steptoe who provided services to these attorneys during the Interim Period, are set forth in the attached Exhibit A. 12. Steptoe, by and through such persons, has prepared and assisted in the

Objection Deadline: September 14, 2010 Hearing Date: Only If Objections Are Timely Filed

SEVENTEENTH MONTHLY APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES OF STEPTOE & JOHNSON LLP, AS COUNSEL TO THE OFFICIAL COMMITTEE OF UNSECURED CREDITORS, FOR THE PERIOD FROM JULY 1, 2010 THROUGH JULY 31, 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 (Dkt. No. 147), entered on or about April 8, 2009 (the “Administrative Order”), Steptoe & Johnson LLP (“Steptoe”), counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors (“Committee”), hereby submits its Seventeenth Monthly Application for Compensation and for Reimbursement of Expenses for the Period from July 1, 2010 through July 31, 2010 (the “Application”).

reimbursement of $94.67 (100% of the allowed expenses) for a total payment of $17,989.87 for the period July 1, 2010 through July 31, 2010 (the “Interim Period”). Application, Steptoe respectfully represents as follows: Background 1. On March 9, 2009 (the “Petition Date”), the Debtors filed voluntary In support of this

petitions for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors continue in possession of their properties and continue to operate and manage their businesses as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. The 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 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 Steptoe, as counsel to the Committee, was approved

effective as of March 19, 2009, by this Court’s Order Authorizing and Approving the Employment of Steptoe & Johnson LLP as Counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Pacific Energy Resources Ltd., et al., Nunc Pro Tunc to March 19, 2009 (Dkt. No. 261), entered on or about May 1, 2009 (the “Retention Order”). The Retention Order authorized

Steptoe to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary outof-pocket expenses. STEPTOE’S APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES Compensation Paid and Its Source 5. All services for which Steptoe requests compensation were performed for

or on behalf of the Committee. 6. Steptoe has received no payment and no promises for payment from any

source 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 Steptoe and any other person other than the partners of Steptoe for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in this case. Steptoe has received payments totaling $766,331.79 from the Debtors’ estates to date. Fee Statement 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 Steptoe’s knowledge, this Application complies with sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules and the Administrative Order. Steptoe 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. Steptoe has reduced its charges related to any non-working “travel time” to fifty percent (50%) of Steptoe’s standard hourly rate. To the extent it is feasible; Steptoe professionals attempt to work during travel. Actual and Necessary Expenses 8. A summary of actual and necessary expenses incurred by Steptoe for the

Interim Period is attached hereto as part of Exhibit A. Steptoe customarily charges $0.10 per page for photocopying expenses related to cases, such as this one. Steptoe’s photocopying

7

Doc. # CC-232378 v.1

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. Steptoe summarizes each client’s photocopying charges on a daily basis. 9. Steptoe 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 Steptoe’s calculation of the actual costs incurred by Steptoe 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. Steptoe does not charge the Debtors for the receipt of faxes in this case. 10. With respect to providers of on-line legal research services (e.g., LEXIS

and WESTLAW), Steptoe charges the standard usage rates these providers charge for computerized legal research. Steptoe bills its clients the actual amounts charged by such

services, with no premium. Any volume discount received by Steptoe is passed on to the client. Summary of Services Rendered 11. The names of the partners and associates of Steptoe who have rendered

professional services in these cases during the Interim Period, and the paralegals and case management assistants of Steptoe who provided services to these attorneys during the Interim Period, are set forth in the attached Exhibit A. 12. Steptoe, by and through such persons, has prepared and assisted in the

preparation of various motions, objections and orders submitted to the Court for consideration, advised the Committee 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.

reimbursement of $0.00 (100% of the allowed expenses) for a total payment of $10,766.40 for the period June 1, 2010 through June 30, 2010 (the “Interim Period”). In support of this Application, Steptoe respectfully represents as follows: Background 1. 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 continue to operate and manage their businesses as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. The 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 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 Steptoe, as counsel to the Committee, was approved

effective as of March 19, 2009, by this Court’s Order Authorizing and Approving the Employment of Steptoe & Johnson LLP as Counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Pacific Energy Resources Ltd., et al., Nunc Pro Tunc to March 19, 2009 (Dkt. No. 261), entered on or about May 1, 2009 (the “Retention Order”). The Retention Order authorized

Steptoe to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary outof-pocket expenses. STEPTOE’S APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES Compensation Paid and Its Source 5. All services for which Steptoe requests compensation were performed for

or on behalf of the Committee. 6. Steptoe has received no payment and no promises for payment from any

source 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 Steptoe and any other person other than the partners of Steptoe for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in this case. Steptoe has received payments totaling $761,171.79 from the Debtors’ estates to date. Fee Statement 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 Steptoe’s knowledge, this Application complies with sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules and the Administrative Order. Steptoe 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. Steptoe has reduced its charges related to any non-working “travel time” to fifty percent (50%) of Steptoe’s standard hourly rate. To the extent it is feasible; Steptoe professionals attempt to work during travel. Actual and Necessary Expenses 8. A summary of actual and necessary expenses incurred by Steptoe for the

Interim Period is attached hereto as part of Exhibit A. Steptoe customarily charges $0.10 per page for photocopying expenses related to cases, such as this one. Steptoe’s photocopying

7

Doc. # CC-230758 v.1

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. Steptoe summarizes each client’s photocopying charges on a daily basis. 9. Steptoe 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 Steptoe’s calculation of the actual costs incurred by Steptoe 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. Steptoe does not charge the Debtors for the receipt of faxes in this case. 10. With respect to providers of on-line legal research services (e.g., LEXIS

and WESTLAW), Steptoe charges the standard usage rates these providers charge for computerized legal research. Steptoe bills its clients the actual amounts charged by such

services, with no premium. Any volume discount received by Steptoe is passed on to the client. Summary of Services Rendered 11. The names of the partners and associates of Steptoe who have rendered

professional services in these cases during the Interim Period, and the paralegals and case management assistants of Steptoe who provided services to these attorneys during the Interim Period, are set forth in the attached Exhibit A. 12. Steptoe, by and through such persons, has prepared and assisted in the

preparation of various motions, objections and orders submitted to the Court for consideration, advised the Committee 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.

Objection Deadline: September 14, 2010 Hearing Date: Only If Objections Are Timely Filed

SEVENTEENTH MONTHLY APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES OF STEPTOE & JOHNSON LLP, AS COUNSEL TO THE OFFICIAL COMMITTEE OF UNSECURED CREDITORS, FOR THE PERIOD FROM JULY 1, 2010 THROUGH JULY 31, 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 (Dkt. No. 147), entered on or about April 8, 2009 (the “Administrative Order”), Steptoe & Johnson LLP (“Steptoe”), counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors (“Committee”), hereby submits its Seventeenth Monthly Application for Compensation and for Reimbursement of Expenses for the Period from July 1, 2010 through July 31, 2010 (the “Application”).

reimbursement of $94.67 (100% of the allowed expenses) for a total payment of $17,989.87 for the period July 1, 2010 through July 31, 2010 (the “Interim Period”). Application, Steptoe respectfully represents as follows: Background 1. On March 9, 2009 (the “Petition Date”), the Debtors filed voluntary In support of this

petitions for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors continue in possession of their properties and continue to operate and manage their businesses as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. The 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 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 Steptoe, as counsel to the Committee, was approved

effective as of March 19, 2009, by this Court’s Order Authorizing and Approving the Employment of Steptoe & Johnson LLP as Counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Pacific Energy Resources Ltd., et al., Nunc Pro Tunc to March 19, 2009 (Dkt. No. 261), entered on or about May 1, 2009 (the “Retention Order”). The Retention Order authorized

Doc. # CC-232378 v.1

Steptoe to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary outof-pocket expenses. STEPTOE’S APPLICATION FOR COMPENSATION AND FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES Compensation Paid and Its Source 5. All services for which Steptoe requests compensation were performed for

or on behalf of the Committee. 6. Steptoe has received no payment and no promises for payment from any

source 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 Steptoe and any other person other than the partners of Steptoe for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in this case. Steptoe has received payments totaling $766,331.79 from the Debtors’ estates to date. Fee Statement 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 Steptoe’s knowledge, this Application complies with sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules and the Administrative Order. Steptoe 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. Steptoe has reduced its charges related to any non-working “travel time” to fifty percent (50%) of Steptoe’s standard hourly rate. To the extent it is feasible; Steptoe professionals attempt to work during travel. Actual and Necessary Expenses 8. A summary of actual and necessary expenses incurred by Steptoe for the

Interim Period is attached hereto as part of Exhibit A. Steptoe customarily charges $0.10 per page for photocopying expenses related to cases, such as this one. Steptoe’s photocopying

7

Doc. # CC-232378 v.1

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. Steptoe summarizes each client’s photocopying charges on a daily basis. 9. Steptoe 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 Steptoe’s calculation of the actual costs incurred by Steptoe 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. Steptoe does not charge the Debtors for the receipt of faxes in this case. 10. With respect to providers of on-line legal research services (e.g., LEXIS

and WESTLAW), Steptoe charges the standard usage rates these providers charge for computerized legal research. Steptoe bills its clients the actual amounts charged by such

services, with no premium. Any volume discount received by Steptoe is passed on to the client. Summary of Services Rendered 11. The names of the partners and associates of Steptoe who have rendered

professional services in these cases during the Interim Period, and the paralegals and case management assistants of Steptoe who provided services to these attorneys during the Interim Period, are set forth in the attached Exhibit A. 12. Steptoe, by and through such persons, has prepared and assisted in the

preparation of various motions, objections and orders submitted to the Court for consideration, advised the Committee 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.
