Revenue in Q2/23 was $898,217, a 12% decrease from Q1/23 revenue of $1,018,566 and a 41% decrease from Q2/22 revenue of $1,523,771. The 41% decrease in revenue in Q2/23 compared to Q2/22 was due entirely to the decrease in West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") benchmark prices (US$73.78/bbl in Q2/23 compared to US$108.41/bbl in Q2/22), lower AECO daily index natural gas prices ($2.40 in Q2/23 compared to $7.16 in Q2/22) and a decrease in the percentage of oil and natural gas liquids ("NGLs") production.

Year over year commodity prices also caused a 65% decrease to cash provided from operating activities during Q2/23 compared to $149,049 in Q2/22.

The Company's average production was 143 boe/d (78% oil and NGLs) in Q2/23, down 17% from 173 boe/d (75% oil and NGLs) in Q1/23 due to downtime associated with three wells. The Company lost approximately 10 boe/d of production during the quarter as it commenced an acid clean-up and reperforation operations on all three wells in June/23. The Murray Lake (1-1) and the Vulcan (5-21) oil wells came back on production in early August with production rates higher than previous Q2/23 levels.

Operational Update

The production increases as a result of the acid clean-up and reperforation work has the Company currently producing at record levels of approximately 180 boe/d (85% Oil and NGLs) based on August field estimates. The Company is very excited about the better-than-expected results and is reviewing other well candidates.

The Company has been disciplined in maintaining operational flexibility by quickly adapting to changing field and commodity price fluctuations, while continuing to balance organic growth with future acquisition opportunities within cash flow.

Oil and Gas Advisories

Meaning of Boe

The term "boe" or barrels of oil equivalent may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil equivalent (6 Mcf: 1 bbl) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Additionally, given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil, as compared to natural gas, is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1; utilizing a conversion ratio of 6:1 may be misleading as an indication of value.

Reserves Estimates

The estimates of reserves and future net revenue for individual properties may not reflect the same confidence level as estimates of reserves and future net revenue for all properties, due to the effects of aggregation.

Non-GAAP Measurements

The Company utilizes certain measurements that do not have a standardized meaning or definition as prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and therefore may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures by other entities, including but not limited to operating netback, cash flow and working capital. Readers are referred to advisories and further discussion on non-GAAP measurements contained in the Company's continuous disclosure documents. Operating netback is a non‐GAAP measure calculated as the average per boe of the Company's oil and gas sales, less royalties and operating costs.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
