Further to its news release of October 29, 2012 (the "News Release") Renegade Petroleum Ltd. ("Renegade") (TSX VENTURE:RPL) provides the following clarifications with respect to the Sproule Associates Ltd. reserve report related to the acquired assets as at December 31, 2011 (the "Reserve Report"), which was mechanically updated in accordance with National Instrument 51-101 and the COGE Handbook by a member of Renegade's team who is a qualified reserves evaluator (the "Mechanical Update"):
-- The Mechanical Update was effective as of August 1, 2012 and not August
31, 2012 as stated in the New Release;
-- In preparing the Mechanical Update, the Reserve Report was updated to
reflect all material changes in reserves on the subject assets from the
date of the Reserve Report up to the effective date of the Mechanical
Update, including: (a) public production data on all wells and updates
based on individual well decline curves to incorporate production; (b)
updated information based on the addition of new wells drilled, which
involved, among other things, updating the forecasts; (c) rescheduling
of remaining proven undeveloped and probable locations to reflect no
further activity on the subject assets in 2012; and (d) updated price
assumptions based on the Sproule August 31, 2012 price deck (from the
January 1, 2012 price deck); and
-- References to "NPV" in the News Release are before income tax and do not
represent fair market value of the reserves estimates and the price deck
used to calculate the NPVs was the Sproule August 31, 2012 price deck
