Disclaimer
This presentation is not, and under no circumstances is to be construed to be a prospectus, offering memorandum, advertisement or public offering of any
securities of MEG Energy Corp. ("MEG"). Neither the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") nor any other state securities
regulator nor any securities regulatory authority in Canada or elsewhere has assessed the merits of MEG's securities or has reviewed or made any
determination as to the truthfulness or completeness of the disclosure in this document. Any representation to the contrary is an offence.

Recipients of this presentation are not to construe the contents of this presentation as legal, tax or investment advice and recipients should consult their own
advisors in this regard.

MEG has not registered (and has no current intention to register) its securities under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S.
Securities Act"), or any state securities or "blue sky" laws and MEG is not registered under the United States Investment Act of 1940, as amended. The
securities of MEG may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state
securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.

Without limiting the foregoing, please be advised that certain financial information relating to MEG contained in this presentation was prepared in
accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles, which differ from generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and
elsewhere. Accordingly, financial information included in this document may not be comparable to financial information of United States issuers.

The information concerning petroleum reserves and resources appearing in this document was derived from a report of GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd.
dated as of December 31, 2010, which has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument 51-101 entitled
Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities ("NI 51-101") at that time. The standards of NI 51-101 differ from the standards of the SEC and, among
other things, NI 51-101 permits disclosure of estimates of resources and probable reserves that have not been demonstrated to be capable of economic
extraction to the extent necessary to be categorized as "proved reserves". Such estimates may not be included in filings made with the SEC by other
companies. As a consequence, information included in this presentation concerning our petroleum reserves and resources may not be comparable to
information made by public issuers subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC.

There are significant differences in the criteria associated with the classification of reserves and contingent resources, Contingent resource estimates
involve additional risk, specifically the risk of not achieving commerciality, not applicable to reserves estimates. There is no certainty that it will be
commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources. The estimates of reserves and future net revenue from individual properties may not reflect the
same confidence level as estimates of reserves and future net revenue for all properties, due to the effects of aggregation. Further information regarding
the estimates and classification of MEG’s reserves and resources is contained within the Corporation’s public disclosure documents on file with Canadian
securities regulatory authorities, and in particular, within the “Risk Factors”, “Industry Regulation” and “Independent Reserve and Resource Evaluation”
within MEG’s supplemented prospectus dated July 28, 2010 (the “Prospectus”). MEG’s public disclosure documents, including the Prospectus, may be
accessed through the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com), at MEG’s website (www.megenergy.com) or by contacting MEG’s investor relations department.

Anticipated netbacks are calculated by adding anticipated revenues and other income and subtracting anticipated royalties, operating costs and
transportation costs from such amount.

                                                                                                                                                                   1

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this presentation constitute forward-looking statements. These statements relate to future events or MEG's future performance. All statements other than
statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. The use of any of the words "anticipate", "plan", "contemplate", "continue", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "propose", "might", "may",
"will", "shall", "project", "should", "could", "would", "believe", "predict", "forecast", "pursue", "potential" and "capable" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking
statements. No assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this presentation should not be unduly relied upon.
These statements speak only as of the date of this presentation. In addition, this presentation may contain forward-looking statements and forward-looking information attributed to third party
industry sources.

In particular, this presentation contains forward-looking statements pertaining to the following: the reserve and resource potential of MEG's assets; the bitumen production and production
capacity of MEG's assets; MEG's growth strategy and opportunities; MEG's capital expenditure programs and future capital requirements; the estimated quantity of MEG's proved reserves,
probable reserves and contingent resources; MEG's projections of commodity prices, costs and netbacks; MEG's estimates of future interest and foreign exchange rates; MEG's environmental
considerations, including water usage and greenhouse gas emissions; MEG's blending capability for its bitumen diluent blend; the timing and size of certain of MEG's operations and phases,
including its planned bitumen development projects, and the levels of anticipated production; supply and demand fundamentals for crude oil, bitumen blend, natural gas, condensate and other
diluents; MEG's access to adequate pipeline capacity; MEG's access to third-party infrastructure; industry conditions including with respect to project development; potential future markets for

offering; the expected application timeframe for the Surmont Project and for the Growth Properties; the timing for receipt of various regulatory approvals, including receipt of various regulatory
approvals for the Christina Lake Project, Surmont Project and Growth Properties; MEG's treatment under governmental regulatory and royalty regimes and tax laws; and MEG's future general
and administrative expenses.

With respect to forward-looking statements and forward-looking information contained in this presentation, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: future crude oil, bitumen
blend, natural gas, condensate and other diluent prices; MEG's ability to obtain qualified staff and equipment in a timely and cost-efficient manner; the regulatory framework governing royalties,
taxes and environmental matters in the jurisdictions in which MEG conducts and will conduct its business; MEG's ability to market production of bitumen blend successfully to customers; MEG's
future production levels; the applicability of technologies for the recovery and production of MEG's reserves and resources; the recoverability of MEG's reserves and resources; operating costs;
future capital expenditures to be made by MEG; future sources of funding for MEG's capital programs; MEG's future debt levels; geological and engineering estimates in respect of MEG's
reserves and resources; the geography of the areas in which MEG is conducting exploration and development activities; the impact of increasing competition on MEG; and MEG's ability to obtain
financing on acceptable terms.

In addition, information and statements in this presentation relating to "reserves" and "resources" are deemed to be forward-looking information and statements, as they involve the implied
assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the reserves and resources described exist in the quantities predicted or estimated, and that the reserves and resources
described can be profitably produced in the future.

The forward-looking statements included in this presentation are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement and are made as of the date of this presentation. MEG does not undertake any
obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by applicable securities laws.

Market Data

This presentation contains statistical data, market research and industry forecasts that were obtained from government or other industry publications and reports or based on estimates derived
from such publications and reports and management's knowledge of, and experience in, the markets in which MEG operates. Government and industry publications and reports generally
indicate that they have obtained their information from sources believed to be reliable, but do not guarantee the accuracy and completeness of their information. Often, such information is
provided subject to specific terms and conditions limiting the liability of the provider, disclaiming any responsibility for such information, and/or limiting a third party's ability to rely on such
information. None of the authors of such publications and reports has provided any form of consultation, advice or counsel regarding any aspect of, or is in any way whatsoever associated with,
MEG. Further, certain of these organizations are advisors to participants in the oil sands industry, and they may present information in a manner that is more favourable to that industry than
would be presented by an independent source. Actual outcomes may vary materially from those forecast in such reports or publications, and the prospect for material variation can be expected
to increase as the length of the forecast period increases. While management believes this data to be reliable, market and industry data is subject to variations and cannot be verified due to
limits on the availability and reliability of data inputs, the voluntary nature of the data gathering process and other limitations and uncertainties inherent in any market or other survey.
Accordingly, the accuracy, currency and completeness of this information cannot be guaranteed. None of MEG, its affiliates or the underwriters has independently verified any of the data from
third party sources referred to in this presentation or ascertained the underlying assumptions relied upon by such sources.                                                                                  2

                     Strong Environmental Profile
                           SAGD extraction methods have several key environmental advantages:
                             – Only 10-15% land surface usage
                                   – One well pad can service an area the size of 96 NFL football fields and will recover
MEG is proactively                    approximately 9-12 MMbbls of bitumen

impact                     MEG’s projects have several additional environmental advantages
                             – Lower SORs = lower natural gas emissions
                             – Power cogeneration: natural gas used to generate 2 energy sources (bitumen &
                                electricity)
                             – Clean burn technologies reduce GHG emissions

                                        According to Environment Canada, Canada contributed only 2% of global energy-related GHG
                                        emissions and oil sands contributed only 5% of this amount in 2008
                                                CAPP expects oil sands to contribute 8% by 2015 with increased production
On a “Wells to                          A full life cycle approach compares total emissions from various oil sources – “Wells to Wheels”
Wheels” basis,                                  Majority of emissions are from combustion of gasoline in motor vehicles – “Tank to

with cogen can                                  GHG emissions from oil sands may be higher than from conventional oil on a “Wells to
