Ethanol Project

Core Business An integrated independent energy company with assets and operations in Peru Primary goal of becoming one of the lowest cost producers of fuelgrade ethanol in the world Current Operations Operation of an integrated ethanol production business producing fuel-grade ethanol Operation of a fully integrated liquid hydrocarbon business from production to refining and marketing Evaluation of a shale gas opportunity Strategy Complete Ethanol Project and ramp up commercial production during 2012 Seek to expand current Ethanol Project Seek to identify additional ethanol development opportunities Maximise efficiency and profitability of hydrocarbon production, refining and marketing operations Management Team Significant in-country experience since 1993 Project management, construction, development and operation expertise
Based on Maples management estimates (including interest during construction, a debt service reserve account, and certain value-added taxes, and excluding assets acquired under finance leases). The estimated total costs for the Ethanol Project are management estimates based on numerous assumptions and such estimates are subjective, and therefore susceptible to varying interpretations and periodic re-evaluation based on actual experience and business, market and industry conditions. Actual project costs may differ from the estimates above, and such differences may be material. Reserves based on 10-year extension of License Contract for Blocks 31-B and 31-D.
