(I) "Group 1 Assets": (A) PEAO's interests in leased oil and gas production assets
located in Alaska (and related assets and contracts) that are operated by PERL (the "Operated Alaska Interests"); (B) PEAO's interests in leased gas production assets located in Alaska (and related assets and contracts) that are operated by Aurora Gas, LLC (the "Aurora Operated Alaska Interests,,);3 and (C) PEAH's 50% of the issued and outstanding common stock (the "Stock) of Cook Inlet Pipe Line Company ("CIPL"); and

(II) "Group 2 Assets": PEAO's interests in leased oil and gas production assets
located in Alaska (and related assets and contracts) that are operated by Union Oil
(the "Nonoperated Alaska Interests").

The Debtors propose to sell the Group 1 Assets and Group 2 Assets (each a "Group" and,

collectively, the "Groups") in two separate concurent auctions (the "Auctions") that are
proposed to be scheduled to commence on July 20, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. prevailing Eastern time. Qualified Bidders are not required to bid for both sets of Alaska Assets but any bidder that bids

attbutable to the Operated Alaska Interests and $101 milion attbuted to the Nonoperated
Alaska Interests.
7. PERL owns 100% of the membership interests in PEAH. Substantially all

Debtors' Marketin2: Efforts
10. Prepetition, on December 8, 2008, the Debtors engaged Albrecht &

Associates, Inc. ("Albrecht"), as agent, to assist the Debtors in their efforts to market and sell
substantially all of

their operating assets. Albrecht was retained by the Debtors as sales agent in

the Debtors' chapter 11 cases by an order of

the Banptcy Cour. Albrecht has been assisting

PERL with the sale ofthe Beta Assets.
11. Prepetition, on December 19, 2008, the Debtors engaged Lazard Frères &

Co., LLC ("Lazard"), as investment baner, for the purose of

implementing and executing on

12. With the assistance of

concurent processes - one for the Alaska Assets and the other for the Beta Assets (collectively,

the "Assets") - to solicit bids ("Bids") for the sale ofthe Assets. The Debtors and Lazard began

April

3, 2009, with descriptions of

the business and financial projections for the business, and

provided prospective buyers with access via computer to a virtal "data room" established by the

Debtors, Lazard and the Debtors' transactional counsel, Rutan & Tucker, LLP, with respect to
the proposed sale.
13. Lazard identified several potential operating, strategic and financial buyers

for the Alaska Assets and approached more than 40 potential buyers to solicit their interest in

acquiring the Alaska Assets. Confidentiality agreements were sent to approximately 26 ofthese
potential buyers, approximately 15 of such potential buyers executed and retued confidentiality

agreements, and approximately 11 requested and received the offering memorandum. Also, the
Debtors' year-end 2008 reserve reports are available to potential buyers in the Debtors' data
room.
14. As a result of

the Debtors' and Lazard's marketing effort, the Debtors

received four expressions of interests for all or portions of their Alaska Assets (one of which was
combined with an expression of

interest for the Beta Assets), and three potential buyers made

site visits to Alaska.
15. The Debtors with the assistance of

Lazard and their other professionals

intend to market and seek higher and better bids for the Alaska Assets and, pursuant to the

proposed sale procedures set forth herein (the "Sale Procedures"), to hold the Auction on July

20, 2009 at i 0:00 a.m. Eastern time or on another date specified by this Cour. The Debtors
believe that the months of marketing efforts that have taken place to date would result in the
highest and best price for the Alaska Assets.

Necessity of Prompt Sale

16. The Debtors have incured, and continue to incur, signficant losses with

respect to the Alaska Assets and are unable to generate suffcient positive cash flow to sustain
their on-going operations. Since the Petition Date, these losses have either remained accrued and
unpaid or have been fuded through borrowings under the Debtor's debtor in possession loan
facility ("DIP Financing Facility"). In order to minimize their losses and protect the value of

the

business as a going concern, the Debtors' prepetition secured lenders, as a condition of

providing

the DIP Financing Facility, required the Debtors to pursue a sale ofthe Alaska Assets on an
expedited basis.
17. The Debtors must meet a strct schedule for attempting to sell the Alaska

Assets or abandon them pursuant to a requirement in an amendment to the credit agreement (the

"Credit Agreement Amendment") anticipated by this Cour's final order approving the DIP

Financing Facility in these Cases, as follows: (a) a June 16,2009 deadline to file motion to

approve sale to stalkng horse and associated procedures or, if no stalkng horse, this Motion to
approve the Sale Procedures; (b) a July 16, 2009 deadline for entry of

the Sale Procedures Order

requested by this Motion; (c) a July 20, 2009 deadline for the Auctions requested by this Motion;

(d) a July 27,2009 deadline for entr ofthe Sale Order; (e) an August 4,2009 deadline for
closing of any sales (or such later date as may be necessary to obtain regulatory approvals). The
Credit Agreement Amendment also requires the Debtors to file a motion to abandon the
Nonoperated Alaska Interests by June 16,2009 as an alternative to the proposed sale of

the

Alaska Assets, which the Debtors have filed concurently with this Motion.

DOCS_LA:203387.12

7

18. The Debtors received offers for some or all of

the Alaska Assets prior to

filing this Motion, but none of

the offerees could serve as a stalkng horse bidder for either ofthe

proposed Auctions because, for among other reasons, each offer had one or more contingencies

(such as a financing conlingency) and/or did nol include a nonrefundable deposil. Therefore, lhe

Debtors fied this Motion, which requests approval of proposed Auctions that do not have a
stalkng horse bidder.

19. Because of

the ongoing operating losses, the Debtors have no alternative

means to fud operation of the Alaska Assets and thus must sell the Alaska Assets.

20. As stated above, the Debtors' losses for the Alaska Assets have been
fuded solely through borrowings on the DIP Credit Agreement. Durg the first four months of
2009, the average monthly cash loss, inclusive of

required capital maintenance projects and

mandatory provisions for futue abandonment obligations, was approximately $500,000. These
cash losses have been exacerbated in recent months as the eruption and the continuance of

elevated seismic activity at the volcano Mount Redoubt, which has caused the shut-in ofCIPL's
pipeline and terminallng facilities, the region's sole means of

bringing the crude oil produced to

market. Whle it is expected that an alternative, yet more costly, outlet to market wil be
developed and employed within the next couple of months, the Debtors curently budget a cash
loss of

$2.5 milion for the months of June and July, 2009. Once the Debtors are able to resume

sales of crude oil it is expected that the operated properties, on a normalized basis, would

continue to incur signficant operating losses of approximately $700,000 each month. The

Debtor plans to fie a claim with its business interrption insurance carer to recoup the added

DOCS _ LA:203387. 1 2

8

costs of

transportation and the value of delayed sales; however, there is no assurance that such

claim will be paid or paid timely.
21. In addition to the approximately $2.5 million expected cash loss durng

June and July, 2009, the Debtors have accrued but unpaid amounts due to overrding royalty

interest ("ORR") holders and for lease royalty payment obligations. The prepetition amounts
due to the ORR holders and for lease royalty payment obligation is approximately $300,000.

Postpetition, based on production through May 31,2009, the Debtors estimate an additional
amount due of approximately $300,000.
22. Each month, the Debtors are obligated to fud $200,000 into escrow

established on behalf ofthe Deparent of

Natual Resources ("DNR") of

the State of Alaska for

the potential future abandonment costs of

the Osprey Platform in the Redoubt field. The

Debtors did not make the April and May, 2009 escrow payments (totaling approximately

$400,000). In addition, the Debtors have not budgeted to make escrow payments durng the
months of June and July, 2009 (for at total amount owed as of July 31, 2009 of $800,000).
23. As with the Operated Alaska Interests, the Debtors have incured, and

continue to incur, signficant operating losses with respect to their Nonoperated Alaska Interests
and are unable to generate sufficient positive cash flow to sustain their on-going operations.
Each month, Union Oil, the operator of

the Nonoperated Alaska Interests, sends to the Debtors a

statement detailing the Debtors' share of Joint Operating Bilings ("JIBs") for the Nonoperated
Alaska Interest. Since September, 2008, the Debtors have not made any cash payments to Union
Oil with respect to these JIBs. Rather, on a prepetition basis, Union Oil has offset the Debtors'

DOCS_LA:203387.12

9

share of

production against the amount owed. As of

the Petition Date, the accrued but unpaid

balance of

the JIBs is approximately $29.5 milion per Union OiL. The Debtors, however,

dispute this amount. On a postpetition basis, the Debtors have continued to accrue expenses
associated with Union Oil's operation of

the Nonoperated Alaska Interests. The Debtors

estimate the amount that Union Oil would claim to be owed in respect of postpetition JIBs to be
an additional $9.0 million (also subject to dispute).

event less than $250,000. The Good Faith Deposit is NONRFUNABLE if

the Potential

Bidder is designated the Successful Bidder (whether initially or after being previously designated
a Back-Up Bidder) unless the Debtor defaults under any executed and delivered Agreement.
28. Also, each Potential Bidder shall provide written evidence that

demonstrates that it has the necessar financial ability to close the contemplated transaction and
provide adequate assurance of futue performance under all contracts to be assumed in such

title 11 ofthe United States Code and any such bid shall

constitute a Qualified Bid and an allowed claim for bidding puroses only.
30. A "Qualified Bidder" is a Potential Bidder (or combination of

Potential

the Group 1 Assets) do not

DOCS _ LA:203387. 1 2

and with assistance from their advisors determine has made a bona fide offer that the Potential
Bidder would (or would if a CommIlmenl Fee were paid) be able to timely consumate the
purchase ofthe relevant Group or Groups of Alaska Assets (or a subset of

the Group 1 Assets), if

selected as a Successful Bidder or a Back-Up Bidder. The Debtors shall have the right to reject
any and all Bids that they believe, in their reasonable discretion after consultation with the
Lenders and the Offcial Committee of

Unsecured Creditors appointed in the Cases (the

"Committee"), do not comply with the Sale Procedures or for any reason or no reason.
31. If the Debtors have received more than one Qualifyng Bid for a Group of

Alaska Assets (or a subset of

the Group 1 Assets) they may conduct an auction (the "Auction")

for each such Group (or a subset ofthe Group 1 Assets) to determine the highest and best bid
with respect to the respective Alaska Assets (or subset of the Group 1 Assets).
32. At least 24 hours prior to each Auction, after consultation with the

Lenders and the Committee, the Debtors shall determine in their reasonable discretion which

according to the following procedures:
34. The Debtors shall provide all Qualified Bidders (a) notice ofthe identity

of any Qualified Bidder that has been selected by the Debtors to make the Baseline Bid for each Group of Alaska Assets (or subset of the Group 1 Assets) and (b) copies of all Qualified Bids at
least 24 hours prior to the Auction, which may exclude any confidential financial information, as

determined by the Debtors in their sole reasonable discretion or which has been so designated by

a Qualified Bidder in writing. The Qualified Bidder whose Qualified Bid is designated a
Baseline Bid shall notify the Notice Paries in wrting if

it has paid a Commitment Fee after the

date of its Offer Letter and would therefore be seeking an Expense Reimbursement if it is

35. At the star of each Auction, the Debtors shall describe the material

business terms of the Baseline Bid. All Bids made thereafter shall be Overbids (as defined
below) and shall be made and received on an open basis, and all material non-confidential terms

shall immediately identify the highest and best offer for portions or all of

the Assets (which may
the Group 1

be an aggregate of

bids for less than all of a Group of Alaska Assets or subset of

Assets) (the "Successful Bid") and the entity submitting such Successful Bid (the "Successful
Bidder"), which highest and best offer would in the Debtors' business judgment provide the

greatest amount of net value to the Debtors' estates (or anyone or more of them), and the next
highest and best offer after the Successful Bid (the "Back-up Bid") and the entity submitting the
Back-Up Bid (the "Back-Up Bidder"), and advise the Qualified Bidders of such determination.

the Distrct of

Delaware enters a stay of such sale. The Debtors' presentation of a paricular

DOCS _ LA:203387. 1 2

15

Qualified Bid to the Banptcy Cour for approval does not constitute the Debtors' acceptance
of such Qualified Bid.
39. If a Successful Bidder fails to consumate an approved sale in accordance

with the applicable Agreement or such Agreement is terminated, the Debtors shall be authorized,

but not required, to deem the Back-up Bid, as disclosed at the Sale Hearg, the Successful Bid,
and the Debtors shall be authorized, but not required, to consumate the sale with the Qualified
Bidder submitting such Bid without fuher order of the Banptcy Cour.

Procedures for the Assumption and Assi2:nment of Assumed Executory Contracts

Successful Bidder pursuant to its Agreement with the relevant Debtors (the "Assumed Executory
Contracts").
41. At least intially, the Assumed Executory Contracts shall be those

executory contracts and unexpired leases that the Debtors believe should be assumed and
assigned as par of the orderly transfer of each Group of Alaska Assets (or subset of

Group 1

Assets). The Successful Bidder may choose to exclude (or to add) certain executory contracts or

unexpired leases to the list of Assumed Executory Contracts, subject to fuher notice.
42. In the interim, the Debtors wil serve the Sale Motion and the Notice to

Counter

parties to Executory Contracts and Unexpired Leases That May be Assumed and

DOCS_LA:203387.12

16

counterparty to the Assumed Executory Contracts. The Cure Notice shall state the date, time and
place ofthe Sale Hearng as well as the date by which any objection to the assumption and

assignent of Assumed Executory Contracts must be filed and served. The Cure Notice also

shall identify the amounts, if any, that the Debtors believe are owed to each counterparty to an

Assumed Executory Contract in order to cure any defaults that exist under such contract (i.e., the

"Cure Amounts"). If a contract or lease is assumed and assigned pursuant to this Cour's order
approving same, then unless the Assumed Executory Contract counterpary properly and timely
fies and serves an objection to the Cure Amount contained in the Cure Notice, the Assumed
Executory Contract counterpary shall receive at the time of the closing of

the sale (or as soon as

reasonably practicable thereafter), the Cure Amount as set forth in the Cure Notice, if any, with payment to be made pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, as executed and delivered by at
closing by one or more of

the relevant Debtors. If an objection is filed by a counterparty to an

Assumed Executory Contract, the Debtors propose that such objection must set forth a specific
default in any executory contract or unexpired lease and claim a specific monetar amount that

differs from the amount, if any, specified by the Debtors in the Cure Notice.
43. If any counterparty objects for any reason to the assumption and

assignent of an Assumed Executory Contract, the Debtors propose that the counterpary must

file the objection by no later than (i) 4:00 p.m. prevailing Eastern time on July 21,2009 (or such

later date that is five days before the date ofthe Sale Hearng, as scheduled by this Cour), or (ii)
the date otherwise specified in the Cure Notice (or, alternatively, the date set forth in the motion to assume such Assumed Executory Contract if such contract is to be assumed and assigned after

DOCS_LA:203387.12

the Sale Hearing); provided, however that any counterpary may raise at the Sale Hearng an
objection to the assumption and assignent of

the Assumed Executory Contract solely with
futue performance

respect to the Successful Bidder's ability to provide adequate assurance of

under the Assumed Executory Contract.
44. The Successful Bidder shall be responsible for satisfyng any requirements

regarding adequate assurance of futue performance that may be imposed under section 365(b) of

the Banptcy Code in connection with the proposed assignent of any Assumed Executory
Contract, as shall be provided in the Sale Motion. The Debtors propose that the Cour make its

determinations concernng adequate assurance of futue performance under the Assumed
Executory Contracts pursuant to section 365(b) of

the Banptcy Code at the Sale Hearing.

Cure Amounts disputed by any counterpary shall be resolved by the Cour at the Sale Hearng.
45. Except to the extent otherwise provided in the Purchase Agreement with

the Successful Bidder, subject to the payment of any Cure Amounts, the assignee of the Assumed Executory Contracts shall not be subject to any liability to the assigned contract
counterparty or lessor that accrued or arose before the closing date of the sale of the relevant
Alaska Assets and the Debtors shall be relieved of all

liability accruing or arsing thereafter

pursuant to section 365(k) of

the Bankptcy Code.
Basis for Relief

46. This Cour has the authority to grant the relief requested herein. The
Banptcy Code provides, in relevant par, that "the trstee, after notice and a hearng, may use,
sell, or lease, other than in the ordinar course of business, property of

the estate." 11 U.S.C.

DOCS_LA:203387.12

18

§ 363(b)(I). A debtor in possession's decisions to use, sell, or lease assets outside the ordinary
course of business must be based upon the sound business judgment of

the debtor in possession.

See Offcial Committee of Unsecured Creditors of LTV Aerospace and Defense Co. v. LTV Corp.
(in re Chateaugay Corp.), 1)73 F.2d 141, 143 (2d Cir. 11)1)2) (holding that a

judge determning a

section 363(b) application must find from the evidence presented before him a good business

reason to grant such application); see also Meyers v. Martin (In re Martin), 91 F.3d 389, 395 (3d
Cir. 1996); In re Abbotts Dairies of Pennsylvania, Inc., 788 F .2d 143 (3d Cir. 1986); Committee
of

Equity Sec. Holders v. Lionel Corp. (In re Lionel Corp.), 722 F.2d 1063, 1071 (2d Cir. 1983)
property outside of the ordinar course of

(court may approve the sale of

business where it finds

a good business reason for such sale); In re Exaeris, Inc., 380 B.R. 741, 744 (Ban. D. DeL.
2008) ("The sale of assets which is not in the debtor's ordinar course of

business requires proof

that: (1) there is a sound business purose for the sale; (2) the proposed sale price is fair; (3) the
debtor has provided adequate and reasonable notice; and (4) the buyer has acted in good faith."),
citing In re Delaware & Hudson Railway Co., 124 B.R. 169, 176 (D. DeL. 1991).
47. The business judgment rule is satisfied where "the directors of a

corporation acted on an informed basis, in good faith and in the honest belief that the action
taken was in the best interests of

the company." Offcial Comm. of Subordinated Bondholders v.

Integrated Res., Inc. (In re Integrated Res., Inc.), 147 B.R. 650,656 (S.D.N.Y. 1992), appeal
dismissed, 3 F.3d 49 (2d Cir. 1993) (quoting Smith v. Van Gorkom, 488 A.2d 858,872 (DeL.
1985)). In fact, "( w )

here the debtor ariculates a reasonable basis for its business decisions (as

distinct from a decision made arbitrarily or capriciously), courts wil generally not entertain

DOCS _ LA:203387. 12

19

objections to the debtor's conduct." Committee of Asbestos-Related Litigants and/or Creditors v.

Johns-Manvile Corp. (In re Johns-Manvile Corp.), 60 B.R. 612, 616 (Ban. S.D.N.Y. 1986).
Cours, absent a showing of

bad faith, self-interest, or gross negligence, wil uphold a board's

decisions as long as they are attbutable to any "rational business purose." In re Integrated
Res. Inc., 147 B.R. at 656.
48. The paramount goal of any proposed sale of

property of a debtor is to

maximize the proceeds received by the estate. See, e.g., Four B. Corp. v. Food Barn Stores, Inc.
(In re Food Barn Stores, Inc.), 107 F.3d 558,564-65 (8th Cir. 1997) (with reference to

banptcy sales, "a primary objective ofthe Code (is) to enhance the value ofthe estate at
hand."); Integrated Res., 147 B.R. at 659 ("It is a well-established principle of

banptcy law

that the. . . Debtors' duty with respect to such sales is to obtain the highest price or greatest

overall benefit possible for the estate.") (quoting Cello Bay Co. v. Champion Intl Corn (In re

Atlanta Packaging Prods., Inc.), 99 B.R. 124, 131 (Ban. N.D. Ga. 1988)).
49. To that end, cours unformly recognze that procedures intended to

enhance competitive bidding are consistent with the goal of maximizing the value received by
the estate and therefore are appropriate in the context of

banptcy sales. See, e.g., Integrated

Res., 147 B.R. at 659 (such procedures "encourage bidding and maximize the value ofthe

debtor's assets"); In re Financial News Network, Inc., 126 B.R. 152, 156 (Ban. S.D.N.Y 1991)
("court-imposed rules for the disposition of assets. .. (should) provide an adequate basis for
comparson of offers, and (should) provide for a fair and efficient resolution of

banpt

estates"), app'l dismissed 931 F.2d 217 (2d Cir. 1991).

DOCS_LA:203387.12

20

50. The Debtors believe that the Sale Procedures proposed herein establish the
parameters under which the value of the Alaska Assets may be tested at the Auction and ensuing
Sale Hearng. Such procedures will increase the likelihood that the Debtors wil receive the

greatest possible consideration for the Alaska Assets because they will ensure a competitive and

fair bidding process. They also allow the Debtors to undertake the Auction process in as
expeditious a maner as possible, which the Debtors believe is essential to maximizing the value

of the estates.
51. The Debtors submit that the proposed Sale Procedures are reasonable

under the facts and circumstances ofthese cases, especially,in light of

the extensive marketing of

the Alaska Assets that the Debtors and their professionals have conducted. The Debtors wil also
continue their marketing efforts through the time ofthe Auction.
52. The Debtors believe that the approval of

the Sale Procedures provide the

Debtors with the best possibility of maximizing the value ofthe Alaska Assets for the benefit of
creditors, and, accordingly, request that the Cour approve the Sale Procedures.
53. The Debtors also submit that the form of Notice of

Sale Procedures,

Auction Date and Sale Hearng, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, would
provide adequate notice of the Sale Procedures, Auction Date and Sale Hearing after service by

the Debtors on the parties provided notice ofthis Motion (as identified below) and should

therefore be approved. The Debtors' investment baners would also send such notice to
potential bidders.

54. The Debtors also submit that the form of

Notice of Auction and Sale

Hearng, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D, would provide adequate notice ofthe Auction Date and Sale Hearng after service by the Debtors on their known creditors and
should therefore be approved.
55. The Debtors also submit that the form of

Cure Notice, substantially in the

form attached hereto as Exhibit E, would provide adequate notice ofthe potential assumption
and assignent of executory contracts and unexpired leases and cure amounts to contract

counterparies and lessors, and should therefore be approved.

No Prior Request
56. No prior request for the relief sought in this Bid Procedures Motion has

been made to this or any other cour.
Notice
57. Notice ofthis Motion either has been or will be given to the following
parties or, in lieu thereof, to their counsel, ifknown: (i) the Offce of

Exhibit B to the contrary, including the disclosure of any mortgage, deed of trust, lien,
Encumbrance, Claim, royalty, obligation or interest:
(a) Sellers' title to all or any par of the Alaska Interests becomes subject to an

outstanding mortgage, deed of trst, lien or other monetary encumbrance or adverse
Claim not listed or referenced on Exhibit A or Exhibit B that would induce a purchaser to suspend payment of proceeds for the Alaska Interest or require the furnishing of security or indemnity. Evidence that Sellers receive their full share of proceeds from a purchaser or Third-Party operator for an Alaska Interest shall constitute a presumption that no Title Defect exists with respect to such Alaska Interest;
(b) Sellers' working interest would be reduced if a Third Pary were to

exercise a reversionary, back-in or other similar right affecting Sellers' title to the Leases not listed or referenced on Exhibit A or Exhibit B; or
(c) Sellers default in any material respect under a material provision of a
lease, farout agreement or other Contract, which default results in a material

loss of title

to any part of the Alaska Interests;

provided, however, that the term "Title Defect" does not include (i) a lien or encumbrance in the form of a judgment secured by a supersedes bond or other security approved by the court issuing

the order; (ii) the loss of lease acreage between the Execution Date and the Alaska Interests

5.3 Determination of

Title Defects and Defect Values.

(a) Within three Business Days after Sellers' receipt of a Title Defect Notice,
Sellers wil notify Buyer as to whether Sellers agree with the Title Defect claimed therein and/or the proposed Defect Value attributed to such Title Defect. If Sellers do not agree

with any such claimed Title Defect and/or any such proposed Defect Value, then the Paries wil promptly enter into good faith negotiations and wil attempt to agree on such matters. The value agreed to by the Parties with respect to a Title Defect wil be the
Defect Value for such Title Defect.
(b) If the Parties do not reach an agreement concerning either the existence of

a Title Defect or the associated Defect Value within five Business Days after Sellers'
receipt of a Tite Defect Notice, then, upon Sellers' or Buyer's written request, the

disputes wil be submitted to the Bankrptcy Court for resolution.
5.4 Calculation of Defect Value.
(a) If, because of a Title Defect, title to or Sellers' rights in a particular Alaska

Interest fails completely with the effect that Sellers have no ownership interest in such Alaska Interest, the Defect Value wil be the Allocated Value of such Alaska Interest.
(b) If a Title Defect exists because Sellers own a lesser Net Revenue Interest in a Property, then the Defect Value wil be the Allocated Value for such Property

multiplied by a fraction (i) the numerator of which is the net present value, as of the Effective Time, of Sellers' interest in the future net revenues from such Property (the
"PV-NRI") minus the net present value as of the Effective Time, of Sellers' interest in the future net revenues from such Property calculated based upon the same production, cost, and assumed future price estimates and discount rate and such other methods, techniques

and assumptions utilized but taking into account the Title Defect, and (ii) the
denominator of which is the PV -NRI.
(c) If a Title Defect is a lien, encumbrance or other charge upon a particular

Alaska Interest that is liquidated in amount, then the Defect Value for such Title Defect shall be the amount necessary to be paid to remove the Title Defect from the affected Alaska Interest.
(d) If a Title Defect represents an obligation or burden upon a paricular

Alaska Interest of a type not described in Section 5.4(b) or Section 5.4(c), then the Defect Value with respect to such Title Defect wil be the sum the Paries mutually agreed upon in good faith as the present value of the adverse economic effect such Title Defect wil have on such Alaska Interest. If the Paries cannot reach an agreement as to such Defect Value, then the dispute wil be submitted to the Bankrptcy Court for resolution.
(e) If less than 100% of the assets comprising an Alaska Interest is subject to

a Title Defect, the Parties agree that only the value of the portion of the Alaska Interest affected by the Title Defect wil be used to consider the Defect Value; accordingly, the
Paries agree that the value of any portion of the Alaska Interest (if less than 100% of the

Alaska Interest) affected by the Title Defect wil be based on an amount equal to (i) the
2165/023353-0033
1019352.03 a06/16/09

-23-

product of (A) the Allocated Value of 100% of such Alaska Interest and (B) a fraction, the numerator of which is the average weighted production of the portion of the Alaska

Interest affected by the Title Defect and the denominator of which is the aggregate
average weighted production of 100% of the Alaska Interest, or (ii) if the Alaska Interest
is not a producing Alaska Interest, as reasonably agreed to among the Paries. The Paries

agree that the phrase "average weighted production" as used herein wil be based on the historical production information from Sellers' records for the three full calendar months immediately preceding the Execution Date.
(f) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 5.4, a Title

Defect with respect to an Easement wil be deemed a Title Defect of the Property
serviced by such Easement, unless an appropriate replacement Easement is obtained by
Sellers therefor.

(g) The calculation of a Defect Value wil take into consideration any and all

applicable guidelines set forth in Sections 5.4(a) through 5.4m.

5.5 Consequences of Title Defect. Sellers wil have five Business Days after the

final determination of a Title Defect and its associated Defect Value to elect, in their sole
discretion, by written notice to the Buyer, any of the following:
(a) to cure, or agree to cure, the Title Defect;

(b) that the Title Defect be an Uncured Tite Defect; or

(c) to terminate this Agreement.

In connection with the exercise of the option set forth in the preceding clause (a), Sellers may delay the Alaska Interests Closing for up to 30 days while they investigate the Title Defect and

possible curative measures, and such right to delay the Alaska Interests Closing wil be in
addition to any other rights of Sellers' to delay the Alaska Interests Closing under this

Agreement.

5.6 Description and Other Errors. If either Party determines, either before or
within 30 days after the Alaska Interests Closing, that the description of an Alaska Interest is incorrect or that certain Alaska Interests were erroneously included in or erroneously excluded from the respective definitions thereof, other sales information or any conveyancing instruments,
then Sellers and Buyer shall meet and use their respective commercially reasonable efforts to

resolve the error without need of further consideration, and shall, as applicable, execute and
deliver, or use commercially reasonable efforts to cause to be executed and delivered, such other instruments of conveyance and take such other actions as either Pary reasonably may request in connection therewith. If the Parties cannot resolve any such purported error within 15 days of the

commencement of negotiations, then the issue wil be submitted to the Bankrptcy Court for
resolution.
