CITY OF DALLAS GAS DRILLING TIMELINE

1. FEBRUARY 6, 2008
City Council Briefed on Gas Drilling
The City Council receives a briefing from city staff on the proposed gas drilling leases.
The presentation contains a slide stating “There will be no drilling allowed on the
surface of City of Dallas park land.” (Emphasis in original.)

2. FEBRUARY 27, 2008
City Council Approves Gas Leases
The City Council votes to approve gas leases to XTO and Trinity East (Hunt and Davis
opposed). Although the XTO lease is signed on the same day, the Trinity East lease is
not signed for six months. No draft lease is attached to the Council’s review and
consideration.

3. JUNE 5, 2008
Park Board Resolution Allowing Sub-Surface Gas Drilling in Parks, Prohibiting Surface
Drilling
Texas state law requires that before a city may take or use park land for non-park uses,
the city must hold public hearings and make a finding that there is no feasible and
prudent alternative to the use.

Because Trinity East wanted to use subsurface park land for drilling, the city initiated the
legal process to allow such subsurface use. As part of the process, the Park Board voted
to approve the subsurface use of park land, but specifically prohibited surface drilling:
“WHEREAS, the City of Dallas will prohibit surface level drilling and mineral production
on all parkland and any subsurface mineral extraction will take place at an off-site
location as to not reduce or distract from any of the recreation uses or experiences of
the parks in question…”

4. JUNE 25, 2008
City Council Hearing on Allowing Sub-Surface Gas Drilling in Parks,
Prohibiting Surface Drilling
The City Council authorized a public hearing to be held in August as part of the state-
required process to use park land for non-park purposes. The council agenda materials
stated: “The City of Dallas is prohibiting surface level drilling and mineral production on
parkland as part of the gas leases.”

5. AUGUST 15, 2008
Mary Suhm Signs Lease Agreement with Trinity East
Despite repeated representations that surface drilling would be prohibited on park land,
City Manager Mary Suhm signs a lease agreement with Trinity East that allows surface
drilling on the leased park land. An assistant city attorney also signs the lease, as to
form.

Exhibit A to the lease lists the leased tracts of land. Tract 137, denoted as a “proposed
drill site location,” is the park land at the golf course and gun range currently being
considered for drilling permits by the City Plan Commission.

6. AUGUST 15, 2008
Mary Suhm Signs Side Agreement with Trinity East
Unbeknownst to the City Council, simultaneously with the lease agreement, City
Manager Mary Suhm signs a letter agreement with Trinity East pledging that city staff
will assist Trinity East in its efforts to obtain a drilling permit from the City Council for
the park land at the golf course and gun range. She is “reasonably confident that Trinity
East can be granted the right” to use the park land as a “drillsite location.” (There is no
signature from the city attorney’s office approving the document.)

7. AUGUST 20, 2008
City Council Resolution Allowing Sub-Surface Gas Drilling in Parks,
Prohibiting Surface Drilling
Even though Mary Suhm signed a side agreement just five days earlier pledging her
staff’s good faith effort to secure council approval to drill on the surface of park land,
the Council is presented with a voting item that restates the city’s prohibition against
surface drilling, allowing only subsurface drilling. Neither the city attorney nor the city
manager calls the council’s attention to the fact that the just-signed lease allows surface
drilling and that Suhm has pledged to assist Trinity East in drilling on the surface of
parkland.

8. JULY 18, 2011
City Signs Lease Amendment with Trinity East
Amendment explicitly notes that Trinity East understands that the proposed drill sites
are on park land and that the council must authorize such drilling before such use is
permitted.

080720
OIL AND GAS LEASE
(Paid-Up Lease)
(Group 1 Tracts)
This Oil and Gas Lease (this "Lease") is made on this I:/+"day of August 2008, between
the City of Dallas (hereafter called the "City" or "Dallas" or "Lessor"), and Trinity East Energy,
LLC (hereafter called "Lessee").
1. Grant. In consideration of Ten Dollars ($10.00), the royalties provided for herein,
and other consideration in hand paid to the City, Lessor grants and leases exclusively unto
Lessee the following described land (the "Land") in Dallas County, Texas, for the sole purpose
of exploring, drilling, and producing oil and gas, laying pipelines, and building roads and tanks
thereon to produce, save, treat, process, store, and transport oil and gas and other products
manufactured from oil and gas produced from the Land, subject to the express limitations set
forth in paragraph 5 (references to paragraphs herein shall include all of said paragraph's
subparts) of this Lease:
All of the land described in Exhibit A attached hereto and incorporated herein for
all purposes.
2. Primary Term. This Lease is for a term of THREE (3) YEARS from this date
(called the "Primary Term") and so long thereafter as oil or gas is produced from the Land in
paying quantities. For purposes of this Lease, the phrase "paying quantities" means revenues
from a well exceed the well's operating costs by at least fifteen percent (15%) over any given
consecutive one (1) year period.
3. Minerals Covered. This Lease covers only oil and gas. The term "oil and gas"
means oil, gas, and other liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons produced through a well bore. For
purposes of this Lease, "oil" includes all condensate, distillate, and other liquid and gaseous
hydrocarbons produced through a well bore. Expressly excluded from this Lease are iignite, coai,
sulfur, and any other like minerals.
4. Royalty.
(a) Lessee agrees:
(1) To deliver free of cost to the City, at the well(s) or to the credit of
the City at the pipeline to which the welles) may be connected, TWENTY FIVE percent (25%)
(the "Royalty Fraction") of all oil and other liquid hydrocarbons produced and saved from the
Land. At the City's option, which may be exercised from time to time, Lessee shall pay to the
City the higher of the amount received by Lessee or the market value of the Royalty Fraction at
the well of oil and other liquid hydrocarbons of like grade and gravity prevailing on the day the
oil and other hydrocarbons are run from the lease in the general area in which the Land is
located.
(2) To deliver free of cost to the City at the welles) or to the credit of
the City at the pipeline to which the welles) may be connected, the Royalty Fraction in kind of

not later than ninety (90) days after completion of the well in the case of an oil well, and not later
than the last day of the third month after one month of continuous production from the well, in
the case of a gas well. Thereafter, Lessee must disburse or cause to be disbursed to the City its
royalty on production by the last day of the second month after the month of production. If not
paid when due, Lessor's royalty shall bear interest at the maximum lawful rate from the due date
until paid to the City, which amount Lessee agrees to pay. Acceptance by the City of royalties
that are past due shall not act as a waiver or estoppel of the right to receive interest due thereon
unless the City expressly so provides in writing. The royalty payment obligations under this
Lease shall not be affected by any division order or the provisions of Section 91.402 of the Texas
Natural Resources Code or any successor or similar statute.
(h) The receipt by Lessee from a purchaser or a pipeline company of proceeds of
production for distribution to the City will not result in Lessee acquiring legal or equitable title to
those proceeds, but Lessee shall at all times hold the proceeds in trust for the benefit of Lessor, to
be paid to the City. Notwithstanding the insolvency, bankruptcy, or other business failure of a
purchaser of production from the Land or a pipeline company transporting production from the
Land, Lessee shall remain liable for payment to the City as directed by Lessor for, and agrees to
pay to the City all royalties due the City together with interest if not timely paid.
5. Limitations on Lessee's Access to the Land and Surface Use.
(a) Drill site locations and all operations (as defined herein) shall be limited to
designated portions of the Land. Such locations are identified on Exhibit A to this Lease. Lessee
shall pay the City for each drill site location in accordance with the provisions of subparagraph
(b) below. Lessee can use designated drill site locations to develop land other than (i) the Land,
or (ii) lands pooled with the Land. To the extent Lessee utilizes a drill site location on the Land
as a surface location for one or more wells to explore for and/or produce hydrocarbons from
lands which are not either (i) part of the Land, or (ii) pooled with any portion of the Land (in
either instance, an "Offsite Well"), then Lessee will convey to the City an overriding royalty
interest in production from the Offsite Weii equai to One and 75liOO percent (i,75%) of 8/8ths
of all such oil and gas, produced, saved and sold from each such Offsite Well. This overriding
royalty interest shall continue to exist for as long as said well is producing in paying quantities,
and Lessee is hereby granted all rights and easements necessary to operate and maintain the
Offsite Welles) for a period ending upon the expiration of the leases which cover the lands from
which oil or gas is being produced by virtue of the Offsite Welles).
(b) Lessee shall pay the City Twelve Thousand Dollars ($12,000.00) for each
acre of surface which comprises the resulting pad site to be used for production once drilling and
completion of a well on that pad site is completed. In other words, if after drilling on a specific
well site is complete the resulting well site comprises 1.5 acres Lessee's surface payment is
EIGHTEEN THOUSAND Dollars ($18,000.00). For purposes of this provision, drilling of a well
on a pad site is complete thirty (30) days after the rig used to drill that well is released. If
additional wells are drilled on that pad site, the same procedure will be followed to make like
payments for any incremental increases in the size of the resulting well site.
(c) Except as set forth in subsection (a) above and paragraph 21, sub-sections
(m), (n) and (0) below, Lessee's right of ingress and egress to and across the Land shall not be

(3) Paragraph 2 (Primary Term) of each of the Leases is amended to read as
follows:
"This lease is for a term of sixty-six (66) months from this date (called the
