there is no exploration success factored into our estimates. We also note that
other international producers command multiples of as much as 10.0x CFPS.

Oilexco Incorporated

Investment Thesis
Oilexco’s management is a well-experienced, hands-on team that has
developed and executed a strategy that is on the verge of returning great
success. Combining the operational and technical expertise of senior
management with the geological and engineering skills of the remainder of the
team, Oilexco will deliver meaningful production growth late in 2006, with
significant exposure to other high-impact projects in 2006 and beyond. We
recommend the Company to investors for this exposure. We are maintaining our
rating for Oilexco Incorporated (OIL–T) of SECTOR OUTPERFORM and our
12-month target price of $12.00 per share.

Operational Update
Oilexco announced the production test results for the final well drilled at
Nicol in the U.K. North Sea. The well flowed at 10,165 bbl/d on testing. We
note, however, that this rate was again limited by testing equipment aboard the
Sedco 712 semi-submersible drilling rig, as well as by restrictions imposed by
the U.K. regulatory authorities as to how much oil could be burned. The
following table summarizes all of the individual Brenda/Nicol wells’ test rates.

Brenda/Nicol Field Test Summary

Calculated Sand-face Rate
Test Rate (8% drawdown)
Brenda D1 Production Well 6,301 bbl/d 10,000 bbl/d
Brenda D2 Production Well 9,765 bbl/d 14,000 bbl/d
Brenda D3 Production Well 10,417 bbl/d 20,000 bbl/d
Nicol N1w Production Well 10,165 bbl/d 12,000 bbl/d
Total 36,648 bbl/d 56,000 bbl/d
Source: Haywood Securities

Combined with the three Brenda wells, the Nicol results are very positive for
Oilexco. We note that the Nicol test did not encounter any sand or water, and
neither did any of the three Brenda wells. Oil wells in the North Sea have the
potential for high decline rates as a result of water influx, and we are encouraged
there was no water or sand production, as both are indicators of early production
decline. All four wells have been completed with subsea wellheads and are ready
to be tied in to the production manifold, to be installed in September, with first
production on schedule for sometime in October.

While indicated test volumes are impressive, we note that the wells will not
be produced at these rates. Oilexco reiterated in the press release announcing
the Nicol test results that good reservoir management practices will be observed
in order to maximize the recovery of the oil reserves and prevent premature water
breakthrough. Oilexco has a state-of-the-art subsea manifold system whereby it
can test every well in “real time” and adjust each well’s production as required to
fully exploit the oil at Brenda and Nicol. Based on a 56,000 bbl/d total calculated
flow rate, we would expect that the four wells would be produced at 50% to 60%
of the 56,000 bbl/d total or 28,000 bbl/d to 33,600 bbl/d.

Revising 2006 and 2007 Production Estimates

As a result of the test data from the Brenda/Nicol field, we are adjusting our
production estimates up. Note that our 2007 estimates now include risked
production from the soon-to-be appraised Sheryl field. We have now deferred
production from the Black Horse discovery until the middle of 2008. As we
noted previously, our increased commodity prices result in Oilexco now
becoming taxable in Q4/07. For comparative purposes, we are also adding a
preliminary estimate of 2008 production and cash flow on an after-tax basis.

2006 Outlook
The rest of 2006 will see significant news flow as Oilexco continues with
North Sea operations. We are again updating the previously published table
below with the results of the Brenda/Nicol production well testing. The
remainder of 2006 will be a mix of production and exploration news and
promises to provide positive support to Oilexco’s share price.

Source: Haywood Securities

As previously noted, Oilexco has contracted the Sedco 712 semi-submersible

drilling rig through to 2010. The table above highlights activity only into early
2007, but Oilexco has significant drilling planned well into 2007. In addition, the
results of the 24th Licensing Round are due to be announced before the end of
Q3/06. As Oilexco is one of the most active independent operators in the U.K.
North Sea, we believe that it bid on prospective acreage and will also continue to
evaluate other farm-in opportunities.

To value Oilexco shares, we use a multiple of cash flow. The shares currently
trade at 11.8x our estimated 2006 fully diluted CFPS but only 2.5x our 2007 fully
diluted CFPS. Our production profile assumes production from Brenda/Nicol
coming on midway through Q4/06, with additional production from Sheryl
coming onstream in Q4/07. Our 12-month target reflects 4.3x 2007 estimated
after tax fully-diluted CFPS, but note that Oilexco becomes taxable in Q4/07
under our assumptions.

Risk Profile Parameters

SPECULATIVE: – Investment for risk accounts only. Companies within this category carry greater financial
and/or execution risk. All junior/venture companies that carry great financial and/or liquidity risk will be tagged
“SPECULATIVE”. A stock indicating a SPECUALTIVE risk is determined from sector specific criteria outlined
below listed below.

Risk Profile Parameters – Oil and Gas Sector

Forecast Risk: High – Haywood forecasts are below guidance. The Company has a history of missing targets
and/or Haywood expects guidance to be lowered. Limited hedging increases commodity risk beyond peers. To
raise expectations requires higher commodity prices or production that is ahead of guidance. Moderate –
Haywood forecasts are generally in line with guidance. The Company has a history of meeting or exceeding
guidance. Forecasts are consistent with current commodity pricing and production guidance. Hedging practices
are in line with peers. Low – Haywood forecasts exceed guidance. The Company has a history of meeting or
exceeding guidance. Forecasts allow for modestly lower commodity pricing or production levels. Commodity
hedging lowers volatility relative to peers.

J. Frederick Kozak, P.Eng. (403-509-1938, August 4, 2006 — 8

Oilexco Incorporated

Financial Risk: High – The capital expenditure program in the current year or the next year of the forecast is not
fully funded but requires additional debt and/or equity financing. This categorization does not necessarily predict
whether the additional funds will be raised. Moderate – The capital expenditure program in the current year or the
next year is fully funded with cash flow and limited debt. Low – The capital expenditure program in the current
year or the next year is fully funded with cash flow and no new debt.

Political Risk: High – Properties are located in an area with limited petroleum industry activity or infrastructure.
An environment unfriendly to the industry makes obtaining permits to drill or produce hydrocarbons challenging.
Significant government or local opposition exists. Moderate – Properties are located in an area with minimal
petroleum industry activity or infrastructure. An environment friendly to the industry makes obtaining permits
relatively straightforward. All levels of government are considered indifferent to hydrocarbon activity. Low –
Properties are located in an area with established petroleum exploration and development activity. Oil and gas
Production Sharing Agreements or Exploration Permits are in hand. Government at all levels supports the sector.

Valuation Risk: High – The current valuation is at the high end of historic levels and/or at a premium to peers.
The valuation reflects continued production growth and/or continuing strong commodity prices or further
appreciation. Where applicable, the market capitalization exceeds the NAV by more than 30%. Moderate – The
current valuation is within historic ranges and generally consistent with peers. The valuation reflects reasonable
production growth and/or commodity price appreciation. Where applicable, the market capitalization exceeds the
NAV by 15% to 30%. Low – The current valuation is at the low end of historic ranges and/or at a discount to peer
valuations. The valuation reflects limited production growth and/or no commodity price appreciation. Where
applicable, the market capitalization exceeds the NAV by less than 15% or falls below the capitalization.

Estimates and projections contained herein, whether or not our own, are based on assumptions that we believe to
be reasonable. The information presented, while obtained from sources we believe reliable, is checked but not
