Highlights

Operational Update - Third Quarter of 2012:

Sunshine is a major holder and developer of oil sands resources, with approximately 70 billion barrels of total Petroleum Initially In Place ("PIIP"). The Corporation is focused on development of these assets with the first phase of a 10,000 barrels per day project, currently under construction at West Ells, scheduled for start up in mid 2013. Sunshine is also progressing regulatory approvals for two additional 10,000 barrels per day (total 20,000 barrels per day) projects at Thickwood and Legend Lake. Approvals are expected in the first half of 2013. With over 4.96 billion barrels of contingent resources and 445 million barrels of proved plus probable ("2P") reserves, the Corporation has significant commercial development potential. In addition, Sunshine has recently updated its commercial development plans in the West Ells, Thickwood and Legend Lake areas and is now targeting over 300,000 barrels per day of production from these areas, representing a 50% increase in previously announced commercial production targets.

West Ells Development

As of September 30, 2012, $110.9 million has been incurred for West Ells equipment, engineering, construction, civil works, drilling, completions and other project related expenditures. The Project is currently on schedule and on budget for completion. The Corporation estimates total capital investment for its West Ells 100,000 barrels project to approximate $3.5 billion. Sunshine remains focused on West Ells Phase One construction, which has an initial production rate of 5,000 barrels per day, followed by an already approved expansion to the planned production capacity of 10,000 barrels per day. First steam is expected to commence in mid-2013 and first production is expected in the fourth quarter of 2013.
