Investissement Quebec Inc. Key Developments

Investissement Québec, Ressources Québec, Pétrolia Inc. and Etablissements Maurel & Prom S.A. Announce $100 Million Anticosti Joint Venture

Corridor Resources Inc. announced that it has signed a letter of intent with the Government of Québec, through its affiliates Investissement Québec and Ressources Québec, Pétrolia Inc. and Etablissements Maurel & Prom S.A. to create a joint venture that will appraise and potentially develop hydrocarbon resources on Anticosti Island, Québec. The commercial terms of the joint venture require Corridor and Pétrolia to transfer to a newly formed Québec limited partnership their respective Anticosti exploration licenses containing 891,906 acres and 639,037 acres, respectively, in exchange for Partnership interests of 29.30% and 20.70%. Concurrently, RQ and M&P will commit to spend $100 million collectively through the two phase program in exchange for a 50% interest in the Partnership; with RQ committing $56.67 million to receive a 28.33% interest and M&P committing $43.33 million to receive a 21.67% interest. Additionally, Corridor will transfer a 6.67% interest in the Partnership to RQ in exchange for a cash payment of $13.33 million; and a 0.97% interest in the Partnership to Pétrolia in exchange for a cash payment of $1.93 million. M&P will have the right to exit from the Partnership after a minimum of $35 million has been expended by the Partnership in conducting a minimum of 15 stratigraphic wells and the drilling and fracture stimulation of one well. The exercise of M&P of this exit right would be based solely on a reasonable analysis and interpretation of the technical data and results of the Phase 1 program accomplished at that time. In such event, M&P would relinquish its entire interest in the Partnership for no consideration. If this were to occur, in completing Phase 1, RQ would fund up to $13.26 million of the remaining Phase 1 commitment and would then own 50% of the Partnership. Corridor and Pétrolia would each become obligated to pay up to $3.37 million and each would then own 25% of the Partnership.
