					                              WELL DEPTH CALCULATION TABLE

This is a copy of the table provided under Schedule 2.1(b) of the Petroleum and Natural Gas
Tenure Regulation A.R. 263/97, in relation to Section 11 of this Regulation. This table is used for
calculating the number of sections of land that may be validated as qualified to remain in the
location of a licence at the commencement of its intermediate term, based on drilling depth.

      Schedule 2, Section 2 of the Regulation

      Where a whipstocked well referred to in section 9(1)(b)(ii)(B) of this Regulation is a
      validating well,

      (a) the Column 1 depth for the well is the total measured depth of the well, in the case of
      the first of the whipstocked wells drilled, and

     (b) the Column 1 depth for the well is that portion of the measured depth of the well
     calculated from the point in the well-bore from which the well was whipstocked to the total
     measured depth of the well, in the case of a well subsequently whipstocked from the same
     re-entered well.
                                                              AR 263/97 Sched.2;11/2000;155/2004
