Article 2
PURCHASE AND SALE AND CONDITIONS THEREON

2.1                    Purchase and sale. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and based upon the representations, warranties and covenants contained in Articles "3" and "4" hereinbelow and the prior satisfaction of the conditions precedent which are set forth in Article "5" hereinbelow, the Vendors hereby agree to assign, sell and transfer at the Closing Date (as hereinafter determined) all of their respective right, entitlement and interest in and to all of the Purchased Shares to the Purchaser and the Purchaser hereby agrees to purchase all of the Purchased Shares from the Vendors on the terms and subject to the conditions contained in this Agreement.

2.2                    Purchase Price. The total purchase price (collectively, the "Purchase Price") for all of the Purchased Shares will be satisfied by way of the issuance and/or allotment and reservation for issuance and delivery by the Purchaser to the order and direction of the Vendors, in accordance with section "2.3" hereinbelow, of an aggregate of up to 24,900,000 restricted common shares in the capital of the Purchaser (each a "Share"), at a deemed issuance price of $1.80 per Share in each instance, in accordance with the following milestones:


- 9 -

(a)     2,490,000 Shares will be issued and delivered, as fully paid and non-assessable common shares of the Purchaser, at the "Closing" on the "Closing Date" (each as hereinafter determined) of this Agreement (the "Initial Shares");

(b)     a further 2,490,000 Shares will be allotted and reserved for issuance at the Closing and will be issued and delivered when and if the Purchaser's 10-day volume-weighted average market capitalization reaches $82,000,000;

(c)     a further 7,470,000 Shares will be allotted and reserved for issuance at the Closing and will be issued and delivered when and if the Purchaser's 10-day volume-weighted average market capitalization reaches $196,000,000; and

(d)     a further and final 12,450,000 Shares will be allotted and reserved for issuance at the Closing and will be issued and delivered when and if the Purchaser's 10-day volume-weighted average market capitalization reaches $434,000,000;

provided, however, that the above market capitalization milestones must be satisfied within 10 years from the Closing Date otherwise any milestones which are not attained will eliminate the obligation of the Purchaser to issue and deliver the Shares associated with the unattained milestone(s). For clarity, the Purchaser will maintain 100% ownership of the Company after the Closing Date even if one or more of the market capitalization milestones above are not attained within 10 years from the Closing Date and the Purchaser is therefore not required to issue and deliver the Shares associated with the unattained milestone(s).

2.3                    Disbursement of Shares. The Purchaser will allot and reserve for issuance all of the Shares at Closing and, with respect to the Initial Shares only, issue the Initial Shares at Closing, to the Vendors in accordance with the Vendors' direction and registration instructions delivered to the Purchaser at the time of Closing and, if applicable, issue the balance of the Shares over time and upon satisfaction of the market capitalization milestones set forth in section "2.2(b)", "2.2(c)" and/or "2.2(d)" hereinabove. The Parties acknowledge and agree that any and all Shares are to be delivered to the "Escrow Agent" (as hereinafter defined in section "7.1") to be held in escrow until the conditions to release the Shares from escrow as set forth in section "6.5" hereinbelow have been satisfied. Once the conditions to release the Shares from escrow as set forth in section "6.5" hereinbelow have been satisfied, then any Shares that the Purchaser may become obligated to issue pursuant to section "2.2.(b)", "2.2(c)" and/or "2.2(d)" hereinabove are no longer required to be delivered to the Escrow Agent to be held in escrow.

2.4                    Resale restrictions and legending of Share certificates. The Vendors hereby acknowledge and agree that the Purchaser makes no representations as to any resale or other restriction affecting the Shares and that it is presently contemplated that the Shares will be issued by the Purchaser to the Vendors in reliance upon the registration and prospectus exemptions contained in certain sections of the Securities Act or Rule 506 of Regulation D or Regulation S promulgated thereunder, which will impose a trading restriction in the United States on the Shares for a period of at least six months from the date of issuance of such Shares. In addition, the Vendors hereby also acknowledge and agree that the within obligation of the Purchaser to issue the Shares pursuant to section "2.2" hereinabove will be subject to the Purchaser being satisfied that an exemption from applicable registration and prospectus requirements is available under the Securities Act and all applicable securities laws, in respect of each of the Vendors, the Purchased Shares and the Shares, and the Purchaser shall be relieved of any obligation whatsoever to purchase any Purchased Shares of the Vendors and to issue any Shares in respect of the Vendors where the Purchaser reasonably determines that a suitable exemption is not available to it.


- 10 -

                The Vendors hereby also acknowledge and understand that neither the sale of the Shares which the Vendors are acquiring nor any of the Shares themselves have been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and, furthermore, that the Shares must be held indefinitely unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act, or an exemption from such registration is available. The Vendors also acknowledge and understand that the certificates representing the Shares will be stamped with a United States restrictive legend as set forth in section "3.2(h)(iv)" or section "3.2(i)(vi)" hereof, as applicable (or substantially equivalent language) restricting transfer if such restriction is required by the applicable Regulatory Authorities, and the Vendors hereby consent to the Purchaser making a notation on its records or giving instructions to the Purchaser's Transfer Agent in order to implement the restrictions on transfer set forth and described hereinabove.

                Each Vendor also acknowledges and understands that:

(a)     the Shares are restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act; and

(b)     the exemption from registration under Rule 144 will not be available in any event for at least six months from the date of issuance of the Shares to the Vendor, and even then will not be available unless (i) a public trading market then exists for the common stock of the Purchaser, (ii) adequate information concerning the Purchaser is then available to the public and (iii) any other applicable terms and conditions of Rule 144 are complied with.

2.5                    Costs. The Parties shall bear their own costs in relation to the negotiation and formalization of this Agreement and the matters contemplated thereby, including any legal fees, accounting, regulatory and filing fees and expenses.

2.6                    Other securities. If and to the extent that the Vendors, or any other party related, associated or affiliated with the Vendors, has any absolute, contingent, optional, pre-emptive or other right to acquire any other securities in the capital of the Company, it is hereby acknowledged and agreed by the Vendors that such party shall be conclusively deemed, as and from the Closing, to have transferred the same to the Purchaser to the fullest extent permitted by law, and to otherwise hold the same in trust for and at the discretion of the Purchaser.

2.7                    Standstill provisions. In consideration of the Parties' agreement to purchase and sell the Purchased Shares and to enter into the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each of the Parties hereby undertakes for themselves, and for each of their respective agents and advisors, that they will not until the earlier of the Closing Date or the termination of this Agreement approach or consider any other potential purchasers, or make, invite, entertain or accept any offer or proposal for the proposed sale of any interest in and to any of the Purchased Shares or the assets or the respective business interests of the Company or the Purchaser, as the case may be, or, for that matter, disclose any of the terms of this Agreement, without the Parties' prior written consent. In this regard each of the Parties hereby acknowledges that the foregoing restrictions are important to the respective businesses of the Parties and that a breach by any of the Parties of any of the covenants herein contained would result in irreparable harm and significant damage to each affected Party that would not be adequately compensated for by monetary award. Accordingly, the Parties hereby agree that, in the event of any such breach, in addition to being entitled as a matter of right to apply to a Court of competent equitable jurisdiction for relief by way of restraining order, injunction, decree or otherwise as may be appropriate to ensure compliance with the provisions hereof, any such Party will also be liable to the other Parties, as liquidated damages, for an amount equal to the amount received and earned by such Party as a result of and with respect to any such breach. The Parties hereby also acknowledge and agree that if any of the aforesaid restrictions, activities, obligations or periods are considered by a Court of competent jurisdiction as being unreasonable, they agree that said Court shall have authority to limit such restrictions, activities or periods as the Court deems proper in the circumstances.


- 11 -

2.8                    Purchaser's obligations under the FOR.

2.9                    Payment by the Purchaser under the FOR. Subject to the Closing of this Agreement as contemplated herein, which requires Hydrocarb, as a part of the conditions precedent to Closing as set forth in section "5.5" hereinbelow, to agree to and enter into a certain consulting agreement with the Purchaser, the Purchaser agrees to satisfy the payment obligations to Hydrocarb under the FOR in the following manner:

Failure by the Indemnified Party to so notify shall not relieve any Party of such Party's obligation of indemnification hereunder unless (and only to the extent that) such failure results in a forfeiture by any Party of substantive rights or defenses.

15.5                  Settlement. No admission of liability and no settlement of any action shall be made without the consent of each of the Parties and the consent of the Indemnified Party affected, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.

15.6                  Legal proceedings. Notwithstanding that the relevant Party will undertake the investigation and defense of any action, an Indemnified Party will have the right to employ separate counsel in any such action and participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel will be at the expense of the Indemnified Party unless:

(a)     such counsel has been authorized by the relevant Party;

(b)     the relevant Party has not assumed the defense of the action within a reasonable period of time after receiving notice of the action;

(c)     the named parties to any such action include any Party and the Indemnified Party shall have been advised by counsel that there may be a conflict of interest between any Party and the Indemnified Party; or

(d)     there are one or more legal defenses available to the Indemnified Party which are different from or in addition to those available to any Party.

15.7                  Contribution. If for any reason other than the gross negligence or bad faith of the Indemnified Party being the primary cause of the loss claim, damage, liability, cost or expense, the foregoing indemnification is unavailable to the Indemnified Party or insufficient to hold them harmless, the relevant Party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Indemnified Party as a result of any and all such losses, claim, damages or liabilities in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits received by any Party on the one hand and the Indemnified Party on the other, but also the relative fault of the Parties and other equitable considerations which may be relevant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the relevant Party shall in any event contribute to the amount paid or payable by the Indemnified Party, as a result of the loss, claim, damage, liability, cost or expense (other than a loss, claim, damage, liability, cost or expenses, the primary cause of which is the gross negligence or bad faith of the Indemnified Party), any excess of such amount over the amount of the fees actually received by the Indemnified Party hereunder.
