DENVER -- December 18, 2012

Matthew E. Meagher, president of Meagher Energy Advisors, was recently named
to the Denver Business Journal's (DBJ) 2012 Power Book. Meagher is one of 14
business leaders in Colorado to win in the business publication's annual
awards program.

According to the DBJ, "The Power Book is an exclusive look at business leaders
in 14 industry categories who made news in the last year or who, in the DBJ’s
editorial department’s judgment, otherwise deserve recognition for their most
recent business accomplishments."

Meagher won the energy and natural resources category in large part because of
his leadership during the past two years brokeringthe $137 million contract
between ConocoPhillips and theColorado State Land Board. The agreement will
allow ConocoPhillipsto access 21,048 acres of the old Lowry bombing range
east of Aurora. Meagher believes thelease will generate a minimum of $500
million in royalties, which will directly fund education in Colorado.

"I am incredibly humbled to be recognized by the Denver Business Journal for
my work on this project. Not only did we create access to natural resources,
we've helped support an important revenue stream for Colorado's educational
system," said Meagher. "I'm very proud to be a part of this project. My kids,
my employees' kids and my community's kids will all benefit from this
project."
