The Company's average production was 120 boe/d in Q3/22, down slightly from Q2/22 due to production downtime associated with annual well maintenance. Cash provided from operating activities increased by 81% to $270,889 in Q3/22, compared to Q2/22. Total capital expenditures during Q3/22 decreased by 71% to $72,302 from $250,365 in Q2/22. The Company used the warm seasonal conditions to perform its annual maintenance program on three Murray Lake wells, including replacing injection packers, increasing pump handling capacity for future EOR volumes. The Company also completed the replacement of its downhole pump on a Hays well.
The Company maintained a strong balance sheet, exiting Q3/22 with a net surplus of $1,162,237, including $846,649 in cash.
On September 30, 2022, the Company closed the acquisition of 38 boe/d (69% Oil and NGLs), including 26 bbls/d of light oil in the Vulcan area of Alberta, from Danzig Resources Ltd. The consideration was cash of $417,260 plus 1,500,000 common shares valued at $0.24/share (the market price of TPC shares on the date of closing), for total consideration of $777,260 after working capital adjustments. The Company's October field production estimate, including the acquired assets, is approximately 158 boe/d.
The Company has commenced pipeline construction and the tie-in of its 85% working interest gas well at 02/6-11-15-26W4 which was included in the Danzig acquisition. The tie-in will be funded from existing cash on hand and is expected to be on production by the end of November.
The Company continues to execute on its strategy of delivering disciplined and accretive per share growth. TPC will continue to balance organic growth with future acquisitions opportunities as cash flows fluctuate due to commodity price volatility.

Oil and Gas Advisories
Meaning of Boe
The term 'boe' or barrels of oil equivalent may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil equivalent (6 Mcf: 1 bbl) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Additionally, given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil, as compared to natural gas, is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1; utilizing a conversion ratio of 6:1 may be misleading as an indication of value.
The estimates of reserves and future net revenue for 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.
The Company utilizes certain measurements that do not have a standardized meaning or definition as prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ('IFRS') and therefore may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures by other entities, including but not limited to operating netback, cash flow and working capital. Readers are referred to advisories and further discussion on non-GAAP measurements contained in the Company's continuous disclosure documents. Operating netback is a non‐GAAP measure calculated as the average per boe of the Company's oil and gas sales, less royalties and operating costs.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
