These statements relate to Primeline’s belief that it will be successful in obtaining an injunction restraining CNOOC and CCL from giving effect to the purported termination of the Petroleum Contract 25/34 on January 15, 2018, that it will ultimately be successful in the CNOOC Arbitration, and that Primeline’s banking Syndicate will not demand immediate repayment of all amounts owed under the project facility. Although these statements are based on assumptions management believes to be reasonable, actual results may vary from those anticipated in such statements. Primeline may not obtain the injunction it is seeking, and if not CNOOC and CCL’s termination of Petroleum Contract 25/34 as of January 15, 2008 will be effective.  If Primeline does obtain the injunction it is seeking, it may nevertheless ultimately be unsuccessful in the CNOOC Arbitration.  If it is successful, Primeline may not be able to enforce the award of the arbitral tribunal.  In any of these events, Primeline’s banking Syndicate may demand immediate repayment of all amounts owed under the project facility.  This would likely result in Primeline’s insolvency, and seizure of its assets,   Exploration for oil and gas is subject to the inherent risk that it will not result in a commercial discovery.Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
