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.
