(C) prior to furnishing such information to or entering into or participating in any such discussions or negotiations with such third party, Company provides prompt written notice to Purchaser to the effect that it is furnishing information to or entering into or participating in discussions or negotiations with such Person together with a copy of the confidentiality and standstill agreement referenced above and, if not previously provided to Purchaser, copies of all information provided to such third party concurrently with the provision of such information to such third party, and provided further that Company shall notify Purchaser orally and in writing of any inquiries, offers or proposals with respect to an Acquisition Proposal (which written notice shall include a copy of any such proposal (and any amendments or supplements thereto), the identity of the Person making it, and, if not previously provided to Purchaser, copies of all information provided to such party), within 24 hours of the receipt thereof, shall keep Purchaser promptly and fully informed of the status of material developments, discussions and negotiations with respect to the Acquisition Proposal and of each change in the proposed consideration to be offered pursuant to such Acquisition Proposal and each material change in any of the terms of such Acquisition Proposal; and
(D) Company shall continue to be, at all times, in compliance with this Section 6.1; and
(ix) at any time prior to obtaining the approval of the Company Shareholders of the Arrangement Resolution, withdraw any approval or recommendation contemplated by Section 6.1(b)(iii) and accept, recommend, approve or enter into an agreement to implement a Superior Proposal from a third party, but only if prior to such acceptance, recommendation, approval or implementation, (A) the Company Board shall have concluded in good faith, after considering all proposals to adjust the terms and conditions of this Agreement as contemplated by Section 6.1(d) and after receiving the advice of legal counsel and financial advisors, as reflected in the minutes of the Company Board, that the failure by the Company Board to take such action would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under Applicable Laws, (B) the Person making the Acquisition Proposal was not restricted from making such Acquisition Proposal pursuant to an existing confidentiality, standstill, non-disclosure, non-solicitation or similar agreement, restriction or covenant with the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (C) Company complies, and at all times has complied, with all of its obligations set forth in this Section 6.1, and (D) Company terminates this Agreement in accordance with Section 8.1(a)(viii) and concurrently therewith pays the Purchaser Termination Fee to Purchaser.
(c) Company shall promptly (and in any event within 24 hours) notify Purchaser of any Acquisition Proposal (or any amendment thereto) or any request for non-public information relating to Company or its assets in connection with an Acquisition Proposal, or any amendments to the foregoing or if it otherwise become aware of any inquiry, proposal or offer that constitutes or may reasonably be expected to constitute or lead to an Acquisition Proposal. Such notice shall include a full and complete copy of any written Acquisition Proposal (and any amendment thereto) which has been received or, if no written Acquisition Proposal has been received, a description of the material terms and conditions of, and the identity of the Person making, any inquiry, proposal, offer or request. Company shall keep Purchaser promptly and fully informed of the status of material developments, discussions and negotiations with respect to the Acquisition Proposal and of each change in the proposed consideration to be offered pursuant to such Acquisition Proposal and of each material change in any of the terms of such Acquisition Proposal and shall provide to Purchaser copies of all correspondence with the Person making such Acquisition Proposal, with respect to such Acquisition Proposal or proposal, inquiry, offer or request if in writing or in electronic form, and if not in writing or in electronic form, a description of the terms of such correspondence.

-52-

(d) Company shall give Purchaser at least five Business Days' advance notice of any decision by the Company Board to accept, recommend, approve or enter into an agreement to implement a Superior Proposal, which shall:
(i) confirm that the Company Board (and any relevant committee thereof), in consultation with its financial advisors and legal counsel, has determined in good faith that such Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Superior Proposal;
(ii) identify the third party making the Superior Proposal; and
(iii) confirm that a definitive agreement to implement such Superior Proposal has been settled between Company and such third party in all material respects (including in respect of the value and financial terms) and the value ascribed to any non-cash consideration offered under such Acquisition Proposal, and Company will concurrently provide a true and complete copy thereof, together with all supporting materials, including any financing documents supplied to Company in connection therewith, and will thereafter promptly provide any amendments thereto, to Purchaser.

During the five Business Day period commencing on delivery of such notice that complies with the requirements set forth in paragraphs (i), (ii), and (iii) above in all respects, Company agrees not to accept, recommend, approve or enter into any agreement to implement such Superior Proposal and not to release the party making the Superior Proposal from any standstill provision, and shall not withdraw, redefine, modify or change the recommendation of its directors regarding the Arrangement. During such five Business Day period, Purchaser shall have the opportunity (but not the obligation) to offer to amend this Agreement and the Arrangement in order for such Acquisition Proposal to cease to be a Superior Proposal. In addition, during such five Business Day period, Company shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, if so requested by Purchaser, negotiate in good faith with Purchaser and its Representatives in respect of any proposed adjustments in the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Arrangement as Purchaser deems appropriate. The Company Board shall review any proposal by Purchaser to amend the terms of the transactions contemplated in this Agreement and the Arrangement in order to determine, in good faith in the exercise of its fiduciary duties, whether Purchaser's proposal to amend the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Arrangement would result in the Acquisition Proposal not being a Superior Proposal compared to the proposed amendments to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Arrangement. In the event Purchaser proposes to amend this Agreement such that the Acquisition Proposal ceases to be a Superior Proposal, and so advises the Company Board in writing prior to the expiry of such five Business Day period, the Company Board shall not accept, recommend, approve or enter into any agreement to implement such Superior Proposal and shall not withdraw, redefine, modify or change its recommendation in respect of the Arrangement and Purchaser and Company shall enter into an amended version of this Agreement reflecting such proposed amendments prior to the expiry of such five Business Day period, and upon execution thereof, the Company Board shall promptly reaffirm its recommendations and determinations referred to in Section 2.2 by press release. For greater certainty, each successive amendment to an Acquisition Proposal shall constitute a new Acquisition Proposal for the purposes of this Section 6.1 and shall initiate a new five Business Day match right period.

-53-

(e) Purchaser agrees that all information that may be provided to it by Company with respect to any Acquisition Proposal pursuant to this Section 6.1 shall be treated as if it were "Confidential Information" as that term is defined in the Confidentiality Agreement and shall not be disclosed or used except in accordance with the provisions of the Confidentiality Agreement or in order to enforce its rights under this Agreement in legal proceedings.
(f) In the event that Company provides the notice contemplated by Section 6.1(d) on a date which is less than ten Business Days prior to the Company Meeting, Purchaser shall be entitled to require Company to adjourn or postpone the Company Meeting to a date acceptable to Purchaser, acting reasonably, provided that such adjournment or postponement may not exceed ten Business Days without the consent of Company.
(g) Neither Company nor the Company Board shall withdraw, qualify, amend or modify in a manner adverse to Purchaser, the approval or recommendation of the Arrangement by the Company Board, except if: (i) such withdrawal, qualification, amendment or modification occurs simultaneously with the entry by Company, in accordance with the requirements of this Section 6.1, into a definitive agreement with respect to an Acquisition Proposal constituting a Superior Proposal; and (ii) Company concurrently pays the Purchaser Termination Fee to Purchaser.
(h) Company shall ensure that its Representatives are aware of the provisions of this Section 6.1 and shall be responsible for any breach of this Section 6.1 by any of them.
(i) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prevent the Company Board from complying with Section 2.17 of NI 62-104 and similar provisions under Applicable Laws relating to the provision of a directors' circular with respect of an Acquisition Proposal; provided, however, that notwithstanding that the Company Board shall be permitted to make such disclosure, the Company Board shall not be permitted to withdraw, amend, modify or qualify, or propose publicly to withdraw, amend, modify or qualify, in any manner adverse to Purchaser, the Company Board Recommendation, or endorse, or propose publicly to accept, recommend, approve, agree to, or endorse, an Acquisition Proposal unless otherwise permitted by this Agreement.
(j) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prohibit Company or the Company Board from calling and/or holding a meeting requisitioned by the Company Shareholders in accordance with the ABCA or taking any other action to the extent ordered or otherwise mandated by a Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Laws; provided, however, in each case that notwithstanding that the Company Board shall be permitted to make such disclosure, the Company Board shall not be permitted to withdraw, amend, modify or qualify, or propose publicly to withdraw, amend, modify or qualify, in any manner adverse to Purchaser, the Company Board Recommendation, or endorse, or propose publicly to accept, recommend, approve, agree to, or endorse, an Acquisition Proposal unless otherwise permitted by this Agreement.

-54-

6.2 Purchaser Damages

If at any time after the execution of this Agreement:

(a) Company: (i) fails to make any of the Company Board Recommendation, including in any press release contemplated by Section 10.4 that is issued by Company with respect to this Agreement or the Arrangement or as otherwise required by this Agreement; (ii) withdraws, amends, changes or qualifies, or proposes publicly to withdraw, amend, change or qualify, any of the Company Board Recommendation in a manner adverse to Purchaser (it being understood that the taking of a neutral position or no position with respect to an announced Acquisition Proposal beyond the earlier of a period of two Business Days following such announcement or the date which is the day prior to the date proxies in respect of the Company Meeting must be deposited shall be considered an adverse modification to such recommendation); or (iii) resolves to do any of the foregoing, and this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Section 8.1(a)(vii);
(b) the Company Board shall have failed to reaffirm publicly any of the Company Board Recommendation: (A) in the manner and within the time period set out in Section 6.1(d); or (B) within five Business Days after having been requested to do so by Purchaser, and this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Section 8.1(a)(vii);
(c) this Agreement is terminated by either Party pursuant to Section 8.1(a)(ii) or Section 8.1(a)(iv) or by Purchaser (prior to the Company Meeting and due to wilful breach) pursuant to Section 8.1(a)(v), and in each case prior to such termination an Acquisition Proposal (or an intention to make an Acquisition Proposal) is or has been publicly announced, proposed, disclosed, offered or made by any Person (other than Purchaser or its affiliates) and, within 12 months following the date of such termination:
(i) the Company Board recommends any Acquisition Proposal which is subsequently consummated at any time thereafter (whether or not within such 12-month period);
(ii) Company enters into a binding definitive agreement in respect of any Acquisition Proposal which is subsequently consummated at any time thereafter (whether or not within such 12-month period); or
(iii) any Acquisition Proposal is consummated;
(d) the Company Board (or any committee thereof) accepts, recommends, approves or enters into, or proposes publicly to accept, recommend, approve or enter into, an agreement, understanding or letter of intent to implement a Superior Proposal and this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 8.1(a)(viii); or
(e) Company breaches any of its obligations under Article 6 in any material respect and this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 8.1(a)(vii).

(each of the above, a "Purchaser Damages Event"),

-55-

Company shall pay to Purchaser (or to whom Purchaser may direct in writing) $4 million (the "Purchaser Termination Fee") as liquidated damages in immediately available funds to an account designated by Purchaser. The Purchaser Termination Fee shall be paid as aforesaid:

(f) within two Business Days immediately following the termination of this Agreement by Purchaser in the case of a Purchaser Damages Event described in Sections 6.2(a), 6.2(b) or 6.2(e);
(g) in accordance with Sections 6.1(b)(ix) and 8.1(a)(viii) in the case of the Purchaser Damages Event described in Section 6.2(d); and
(h) upon consummation of the Acquisition Proposal referred to therein in the case of the Purchaser Damages Event described in Section 6.2(c).

Following a Purchaser Damages Event, but prior to payment of the Purchaser Termination Fee, Company shall, and shall be deemed to, hold any amount owing to Purchaser under this Section 6.2 in trust for Purchaser. Company shall only be obligated to pay one Purchaser Termination Fee pursuant to this Section 6.2.

6.3 Purchaser Liquidated Damages

Each Party acknowledges that the Purchaser Termination Fee set out in Section 6.2 represents liquidated damages, which is a genuine pre-estimate of the damages, including opportunity costs, reputational damage and out- of-pocket expenditures, which Purchaser and its affiliates will suffer or incur as a result of the event giving rise to such damages and the resultant termination of this Agreement and is not a penalty. Each Party irrevocably waives any right it may have to raise as a defence that any such liquidated damages are excessive or punitive. For greater certainty, the Parties agree that the payment of the amount pursuant to Section 6.2 is the sole monetary remedy of Purchaser in respect of the events contemplated by Section 6.2; provided, however, that this limitation shall not apply in the event of fraud or wilful or intentional breach of this Agreement by Company and, in such circumstances, Purchaser may pursue an action against Company for damages. Nothing in Section 6.2 and this Section 6.3 shall, in circumstances where a Purchaser Termination Fee is not payable, otherwise preclude Purchaser from pursuing an action against Company for damages under a breach of this Agreement or any remedies under Section 10.8, including seeking and obtaining injunctive relief to restrain any breach or threatened breach of the covenants or agreements of Company set forth in this Agreement or the Confidentiality Agreement or otherwise to obtain specific performance of any of such acts, covenants or agreements, without the necessity of posting bond or security in connection therewith. In no event shall Company be obligated to pay the Purchaser Termination Fee on more than one occasion whether or not such fee may be payable at different times or upon the occurrence of different events.

Article 7
AMENDMENT

7.1 Amendment

This Agreement may at any time and from time to time before or after the holding of the Company Meeting but not later than the Effective Time, be amended by written agreement of the Parties without, subject to Applicable Laws, further notice to or authorization on the part of the Company Shareholders and any such amendment may, without limitation:

(a) change the time for performance of any of the obligations or acts of the Parties;

-56-

(b) waive any inaccuracies or modify any representation or warranty contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto;
(c) waive compliance with or modify any of the covenants herein contained and waive or modify performance of any of the obligations of the Parties; or
(d) waive compliance with or modify any other conditions precedent contained herein;

provided that, no such amendment reduces or materially adversely affects the consideration to be received by a Company Shareholder without approval by the affected Company Shareholders given in the same manner as required for the approval of the Arrangement or as may be ordered by the Court.

7.2 Amendment of Plan of Arrangement

The Parties may agree to amend the Plan of Arrangement as set forth in Article 6 of the Plan of Arrangement.

Article 8
TERMINATION

8.1 Termination
(a) This Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Effective Date:
(i) by mutual written consent of Purchaser and Company;
(ii) by either Purchaser or Company if the Arrangement Resolution shall have failed to receive the requisite votes of the Company Shareholders for approval at the Company Meeting (including any adjournment or postponement thereof) in accordance with the Interim Order;
(iii) by either Purchaser or Company if a change in Applicable Laws is enacted, made, enforced or amended that makes the consummation of the Arrangement illegal or otherwise prohibits or enjoins the Parties from completing the Arrangement, and such Applicable Law has, if applicable, become final and non-appealable, on the condition that: (A) the Party seeking to terminate this Agreement has used its commercially reasonable efforts to, as applicable, appeal or overturn such Applicable Law or otherwise have it lifted or rendered non-applicable in respect of the Arrangement; and (B) the enactment, making, enforcement or amendment of such Applicable Law was not primarily due to the failure of such Party to perform any of its covenants or agreements under this Agreement;
(iv) by either Purchaser or Company if the Effective Time shall not have occurred on or prior to the Outside Date, except that the right to terminate the Agreement under this Section 8.1(a)(iv) shall not be available to the Party whose failure to fulfill any of its covenants or obligations in this Agreement has been the sole cause of, or resulted in, the failure of the Effective Time to occur by such date;
(v) by Purchaser if the conditions set forth in Sections 5.1 and 5.2 (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at closing of the Arrangement, but subject to satisfaction or waiver of those conditions) have not been satisfied or waived by the Outside Date or such condition is incapable of being satisfied by the Outside Date; provided that Purchaser has complied with Section 5.4 and Purchaser is not then in breach of this Agreement so as to cause any of the conditions set forth in Sections 5.1 and 5.3 not to be satisfied;

-57-

(vi) by Company if the conditions set forth in Sections 5.1 and 5.3 (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at closing of the Arrangement, but subject to satisfaction or waiver of those conditions) have not been satisfied or waived by the Outside Date or such condition is incapable of being satisfied by the Outside Date; provided that Company has complied with Section 5.4 and Company is not then in breach of this Agreement so as to cause any of the conditions set forth in Sections 5.1 and 5.2 not to be satisfied;
(vii) by Purchaser upon the occurrence of a Purchaser Damages Event as provided in Section 6.2; or
(viii) by Company to accept, recommend, approve or enter into an agreement to implement a Superior Proposal; provided that: (A) Company has complied with its obligations set forth in Section 6.1; and (B) Company concurrently pays the Purchaser Termination Fee to Purchaser.
(b) If this Agreement is terminated in accordance with the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.1, this Agreement shall forthwith become void and be of no further force or effect and neither Party shall have any liability or further obligation to the other Party hereunder except with respect to the obligations set out in any of Section 1.5, Section 1.7, Section 1.12, Section 2.1(c), Section 4.3, Section 6.2 (provided in the case of Section 6.2, the right of payment arose, other than with respect to Section 6.2(c), prior to or in connection with the termination of this Agreement), Section 6.3, Article 9 and Article 10, all of which survive such termination. Unless otherwise provided herein, the exercise by either Party of any right of termination hereunder shall be without prejudice to any other remedy available to such Party at law or in equity. For greater certainty, the termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Article 8 shall not: (i) subject to Section 6.3, relieve either Party from liability for any fraud or wilful breach by it of this Agreement that occurred prior to the date of termination; or (ii) affect the rights or obligations of either Party under the Confidentiality Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, subject to any further agreement of the Parties.

GENERAL

10.1 Non-Survival of Representations and Warranties

No investigation by or on behalf of, or knowledge of, a Party, will mitigate, diminish or affect the representations or warranties made by the other Party in this Agreement or any certificate delivered by such other Party pursuant to this Agreement. The respective representations and warranties of the Parties contained in this Agreement shall not survive the completion of the Arrangement and shall expire and be terminated on the earlier of the Effective Time and the date on which this Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms. This Section 10.1 shall not limit any undertaking, obligation, covenant or agreement of whatever nature of a Party or any of its subsidiaries which, by its terms, contemplates performance after the Effective Time or date on which this Agreement is terminated, as the case may be.

-59-

10.2 Binding Effect

This Agreement shall be binding upon and enure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

10.3 Assignment

Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder shall be assigned by either of the Parties without the prior written consent of the other Party, except that Purchaser may assign all or a portion of its rights under this Agreement to any subsidiary of Purchaser (including AcquisitionCo) but no assignment shall relieve Purchaser of any of its obligations hereunder.

10.4 Public Communications

Each of Purchaser and Company agree to consult with each other prior to issuing any press releases or otherwise making public statements with respect to this Agreement or the Arrangement or making any filing with any Governmental Authority with respect thereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, neither Party shall issue any press release regarding the Arrangement, this Agreement or any transaction relating to this Agreement without first providing a draft of such press release to the other Party and reasonable opportunity for comment; provided, however, that the foregoing shall be subject to each Party's overriding obligation to make any such disclosure required in accordance with Applicable Laws. If such disclosure is required and the other Party has not reviewed or commented on the disclosure, the Party making such disclosure shall use commercially reasonable efforts to give prior oral or written notice to the other Party, and if such prior notice is not possible, to give such notice promptly following such disclosure.

10.5 Costs

Except as otherwise expressly provided for in Article 3 and Article 6, all fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be paid by the Party incurring such cost or expense, whether or not the Arrangement is completed.

10.6 Severability

If any one or more of the provisions or parts contained in this Agreement should be or become invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the remaining provisions or parts contained herein shall be and shall be conclusively deemed to be severable therefrom and the validity, legality or enforceability of such remaining provisions or parts shall not in any way be affected or impaired by the severance of the provisions or parts so severed. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that the transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the fullest extent possible.

10.7 Further Assurances

Each Party shall, from time to time and at all times hereafter, at the request of the other Party, but without further consideration, do all such further acts, and execute and deliver all such further documents and instruments and provide all such further assurances as may be reasonably required in order to fully perform and carry out the terms and intent hereof.

-60-

10.8 Specific Performance

Purchaser and Company agree that irreparable harm would occur for which money damages would not be an adequate remedy at law in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed by the other Party in accordance with the terms hereof. It is accordingly agreed that each Party shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions and other equitable relief to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of the provisions of this Agreement or otherwise to obtain specific performance of any such provisions, any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with the obtaining of any such injunctive or other equitable relief hereby being waived.

Each Party hereby agrees not to raise any objections to the availability of the equitable remedies provided for herein and the Parties further agree that (i) by seeking the remedies provided for in this Section, a Party shall not in any respect waive its right to seek any other form of relief that may be available to a Party under this Agreement (including any monetary damages, provided that under no circumstances will a Party be entitled to both a grant of specific performance or other equitable remedies provided for in this Section 10.8 and any monetary damages), and (ii) nothing set forth in this Section 10.8 shall require any Party hereto to institute any proceeding for (or limit any Party's right to institute any proceeding for) specific performance under this Section 10.8 prior or as a condition to exercising any termination right under this Agreement (and/or receipt of any amounts due in connection with such termination), nor shall the commencement of any legal action or legal proceeding pursuant to this Section 10.8 or anything set forth in this Section 10.8 restrict or limit any Party's right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the terms hereof, or pursue any other remedies under this Agreement that may be available then or thereafter.

10.9 Time of Essence

Time shall be of the essence of this Agreement.

10.10 Applicable Laws and Enforcement

This Agreement shall be governed, including as to validity, interpretation and effect, by the Applicable Laws of the Province of Alberta and the Applicable Laws of Canada applicable therein. The Parties hereby irrevocably submit and attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Alberta located in Calgary, in respect of all matters arising out of this Agreement.

10.11 Waiver

Either Party may, on its own behalf only: (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or acts of the other Party; (b) waive compliance with the other Party's agreements or the fulfillment of any conditions to its own obligations contained herein; or (c) waive inaccuracies in the other Party's representations or warranties contained herein or in any document delivered by the other Party; provided, however, that any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such Party and, unless otherwise provided in the written waiver, will be limited to the specific breach or condition waived.

10.12 Third Party Beneficiaries

Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, is intended to confer on any Person other than the Parties any rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement, and no Person that is not a party to this Agreement (including any Company Shareholder, director, officer or employee) shall have any standing as a third party beneficiary with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, the provisions of Sections 2.4(h), 2.4(i) 2.7(f), , 3.2(a), and 3.2(b) are: (a) intended for the benefit of all such directors, officers and employees and shall be enforceable by each of such persons and their respective heirs, executors, administrators and other legal representatives (collectively, the "Third Party Beneficiaries") and Company and Purchaser shall hold the rights and benefits of such Sections in trust for and on behalf of the Third Party Beneficiaries and Company and Purchaser hereby accept such trust and agrees to hold the benefit of and enforce performance of such covenants on behalf of the Third Party Beneficiaries; and (b) are in addition to, and not in substitution for, any other rights that the Third Party Beneficiaries may have by contract or otherwise.
