SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND MUTUAL RELEASE
This Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release (this "Agreement") is entered into by and between Pacific Energy Resources Ltd. ("PERL"), on the one hand, and Clariant Corporation ("Clariant"), on the other hand (collectively, the "Parties" and each individually, a "Party"). RECITALS On March 9, 2009 (the "Petition Date"), PERL and certain of its affiliates filed A. voluntary chapter 11 petitions for relief, pursuant to title 11 of the United States Code (the "Bankruptcy Code") initiating jointly administered chapter 11 cases designated as main case no. 09-10785 (KJC) (the "Bankruptcy Cases"), currently pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware ("Bankruptcy Court"). Clariant has timely filed proofs of claim in the Bankruptcy Cases that have been B. assigned claim nos. 239, 495, and 496 ("Claim No. 239," "Claim No. 495," and "Claim No. 496," respectively, and the "Clariant Proofs of Claim," collectively). Claim No. 239 was amended by Claim 495 and Claim 496. Claim No. 495 was originally asserted as a priority claim pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 503(b)(9) in the amount of $66,525.80. An order was entered on March 24, 2010 (the "Claim Order"), by which Claim No. 495 was allowed as follows: $9,343 of Claim No. 495 was reclassified as unsecured and the remainder of the Claim No. 495 was still entitled to administrative priority pursuant to to 11 U.S.C. § 503(b)(9). Claim No. 496 was asserted as an unsecured claim of $22,415.80. On December 15, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court entered its order confirming the C. First Amended Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation for Pacific Energy Resources Ltd, et al., as Modified (the "Plan"). The effective date of the Plan has occurred and the Plan remains in full force and effect. On March 8, 2011, PERL commenced an adversary proceeding against Clariant in D. the Bankruptcy Court, designated adversary proceeding no. 11-51215 (the "Adversary Proceeding"), by filing a complaint entitled, Pacific Energy Resources Ltd., v. Clariant Corporation (the "Complaint"). In the Adversary Proceeding, PERL sought to (i) avoid and recover over $208,000 that PERL allegedly transferred to Clariant during the 90 days before the Petition Date, and (ii) disallow the Clariant Proofs of Claim. On May 23, 2011, Clariant filed its Answer and Affirmative Defenses of Clariant E. pursuant to which it disputed the allegations made in the Complaint. Corporation, Since the commencement of the Adversary Proceeding, the Parties have met and F. conferred regarding their respective claims and defenses and have determined that it is in their respective best interests to consensually resolve the Adversary Proceeding on the terms set forth herein. The Parties agree and acknowledge that the settlement herein satisfies the G. standards of Rule 9019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure as contemplated by Section VI.F.(13) of the Plan.

DOCS_SF:77755.3 68773-003

NOW THEREFORE, the Parties, in consideration of the mutual promises and covenants contained herein, and without admitting liability, hereby agree as follows:

Adversary Proceeding, with respect to the Clariant Proofs of Claim: (a) Claim No. 239 shall be disallowed in its entirety; (b) the portion of Claim No. 495 entitled to priority pursuant to the Claim Order shall be reclassified as a general unsecured claim (resulting in a total allowed Class 4 General Unsecured Claim, as defined in the Plan, in the amount of $66,525.00); and (c) Claim No. 496 shall be allowed as a Class 4 General Unsecured Claim, as defined in the Plan, in the amount of $22,415.80.
