The reserves and cash flow runs represent a computer recalculation to September 30, 2012 of the evaluation of the natural gas reserve base of the Company as of December 31, 2011 for all properties with the exception of the Warspite oil property. The Warspite oil property was updated by Sproule as of July 31, 2012 with cash flows recalculated to September 30, 2012.

A summary of the Company's reserves volumes according to reserve category as at September 30, 2012 is as provided in the following table. Unless otherwise stated, the reserves information included in this news release is stated on a "company interest" basis, which represents Twoco's working interest (operated and non-operated) share of remaining reserves before deduction of royalties and including any royalty interests.

The decline in overall reserve values from December 31, 2011 is primarily due to a significant reduction in the price forecast used by Sproule on September 30, 2012 versus December 31, 2011 as well as a decline in overall reserve quantities. The change in reserve quantities is related to revised recovery assumptions based on additional production history from the Company's producing heavy oil wells.

Relevant portions of the Sproule September 30, 2012 price forecast used in the Company's evaluation are as follows:

Twoco is an oil and gas company engaged in the exploration for, and the acquisition, development and production of, oil and natural gas reserves primarily in the Province of Alberta.

In this news release the calculation of barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated at a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas for one barrel (Bbl) of oil based on an energy equivalency conversion method. Boes may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable to the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
