The Brief Introduction of Petrocom Energy Ltd.

I. Introduction: (P2-P3)
There is a growing need for environmentally compliant coal in China’s
electrical generation market. PEL’s core strategy is to bring in the foreign
advanced coal blending technology, combining with its domestic
experience to establish a complete platform of the art Coal Blending
Facilities (CBFs).
The company will leverage its considerable coal management experience,
an extensive network of coal supply chain partners, exclusive proven
pollution reducing CBF technology and the support from the national
policy to make efforts to become one of China’s premier clean coal
PEL’s management team, led by Chairman and CEO Howard Au, has an
average of over 30 years of successful experience in the Asian energy
market which made PEL gain the strong support of several Chinese
governmental authorities involved in the coal industry and electrical
generation market.
The company has extensive supply contracts with Indonesian, Vietnam
and Russian coal suppliers and is in deep cooperation discussions with
Chinese coal producers and electrical generating entities.
The first 4 CBFs are scheduled to be started to construct in July, 2006
with a constructing period of 10 months. At that time, the processing
capacity of coal will be over 40 million tons and the annual revenues will
be $ 2.5 billion. When second and third 16 CBFs in total are operational,
revenues in 2010 are projected to be $6-7billion.

(In P.10 of PEL PPT: Organization, Key Partners)
V. PEL Mission
PEL Mission: Deliver value to the coal industry in China by becoming a
market leader in the effective integration of three key segments of the coal
supply chain.
Coal Marketing
• Explore the coal mine and manage the purchasing of coal in China,
Indonesia, and Alaska
• Develop and manage the CBF end-user markets
• Organize the supply of blended coal to end-users in China and North
Coal Blending
• Blend “off-spec” coals scientifically to produce “compliance” grade coal
• Supply tailor-made environmentally friendly and efficient coal to power
plants in China and Asia
Coal Mine Safety
• Monitor the coal mine operation with advanced coal mine safety
production system;
• Sales of safety equipment and services used as leverage to secure
long term and steady coal allocations.
VI. The introduction to the project (P14-P19)
CBF—Coal Blending Facilities
PEL is the exclusive Asia licensee for using European coal beneficiation
technology to blend coal to meet US, European and new PRC
environmental standards and improve combustion efficiencies in coal-fired
power plants.
PEL has identified 20 prospective locations for CBFs throughout China. It
is planned that the first 4 CBFs will be contructed from July, 2006. After
the successful operation of the first four CBFs by PEL in 2008 more than
40 million tons of coal will be blended with a projected sales income of 2.5
billion US dollars.

CBF Technology
PEL coal blending is a method using leading technology to produce the
high quality coal with automated silos.
Different variety’s of coal have different specifications. Even the coal from
same coal mine has different specifications. The quality of the coal will
affect the efficiency of the boilers, including the mills, burning efficiency,
ash cleaning, the emission of SO2, Nitric Oxide and CO2. And all these will
affect the profit of the power plants and steel plants.

Since 2003 PEL has held the exclusive technology license in China from
Iv-Bouw in Holland for the CBF. Iv-Bouw will be the lead engineer and
support the project and assist in its construction, and they will offer
technical support during operation. In 2006 the exclusive cooperation
between PEL and Iv-Bouw for the CBF has been extended to cover the
whole of Asia.

PEL signed a MOU with Sinocoal International Engineering Design &

Research Institute (SCIEG) appointing them as the official design institute
for the CBF facilities. Hubei Cheng Tao Tendering Company Limited has
been appointed as the contractor coordination organization for the PEL
CBF construction project. It acts as the technical and contractual
consultant to assure project compliance and development by PRC
engineering & civil construction firms.

PEL’s Coal Blending Facilities (CBFs) are based on the proven design of
Europe’s largest coal terminal, EMO Rotterdam, which has been in
operation since 1994.
The EMO CBF was designed and built by Dutch engineering firm Iv-Bouw,
with which PEL has negotiated exclusive technology licenses for Asia.

EMO’s CBF scientifically blends coal which satisfies European, US and

PRC environmental requirements for SO2 and other combustion
byproducts. KEMA is a world reknowned coal combustion and sampling
and analysis consultancy firm from Holland who tested and designed the
coal blends for the power plants in Holland. PEL has signed an exclusive
agreement with KEMA for the CBF in China.

Steam Coal Imports & Marketing

Beijing Petrocom Logistics Technology Co., Ltd has signed a coal
purchasing agreement to supply coal to the 4 coastal power plants in the
south of China, which are affiliated to Datang International Power
Generation Co., Ltd. with an annual importing amount of 6 million tons.

Taiheiyo Global Holdings (TGH)

TGH is a joint venture between PEL and Taiheiyo Kohatsu of Japan. The
JV has licensed world class coal mine safety and in-mine methane gas
collection technologies for use in China. PEL has cooperated with
Taiheiyo Kouhatsu , and Sino-coal International Engineering Group
making use of the advanced coal mine safety technology owned by TKI as
the research platform to get further improvement according to the actual
China situation. Dalian Coal Technology (DCT) is a joint venture between
TGH and the China Coal Research Institute (CCRI) – Fushun, formed to
manufacture, assemble and distribute mine safety and methane gas
collection systems in China.

The technologies include:-

• Double-Pipe Gas Drainage Drilling Machine (able to drill twice as
far as existing equipment)
• Miner Location System (location monitoring device for each
individual miner)
• PHS Communication System (Underground telecommunications
• THY 2000 Monitoring System (Mine management and monitoring
• Optical Gas Sensor (Used to detect methane gas in the mines)

Other Safety Equipments — New-style KL3LM (A) Miners’ Lamp

An overall agency agreement in China for selling KL3 LM(A) Miners’ Lamp
has been signed between Beijing Petrocom Logistics Technology Co., ltd
and Beijing Huading Sifang Science and Technology Development Co.,
ltd. This miner’s lamp adopts new techniques such as LED new-style
lamp-house and lithium ion storage battery and single-chip microcomputer
intelligent power supply management, etc. Thus it is small, light and safe
with high illumination and a long-life span and so on. It is the new-style
lighting equipments for removing hidden risks for coal accidents and for
ensuring miners’ safety. Currently it has already been sold in major coal
production provinces such as Shandong, Henan, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia
and three provinces of Northeast etc. It is anticipated that the annual sale
quantity will reach 400,000.

Research and Development Center

PEL will establish a R&D centre in China. The R&D centre will incorporate
R&D for the TGH and CBF projects and will be comprised of 3 core
sections. TGH and CBF partners such as TKI, Iv-Bouw and KEMA will
consult for the centre.

IX. Logistics System( P24-25)

Ocean Freight
PEL is currently drafting a cooperation alliance with NYK Bulkship (NYK),
which is one of the global largest Ship owning/operating companies in the
world. PEL will work with NYK to ensure a reliable chartering operation that
allows PE the security of a highly experienced shipping company with the
flexibility to adapt to new challenges and opportunities.

Domestic Rail Transport
PEL has signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement with China
Railway United Logistic Limited (CRUL) to establish a joint coal logistics
centre to coordinate transportation, distribution and warehouse interface and
PEL is to transport raw coal to the CBFs from Mines/Ports and to transport
blended coal to domestic customers. PEL will also work with existing suppliers
and miners who will utilize their current rail transport allocations in diverting
coal from the current supply chain through the CBF network.

Inland River Barge Transport

PEL will work closely with existing barge freight companies to transport coal to
and from the inland CBFs. It is to transport coal to and from the CBFs on the
inland river systems, particularly the Yangtze River and its branches. PEL will
work on a long term basis with these companies and will, in the future, work to
bring more up to date design barges with greater capacity into the Chinese

X. Development Planning (P26-P31)
