Dear Ms. Peay & Mr. Kyle:

 

  1. Pursuant to that letter dated August 1, 2014, Forest Oil Corporation (“Forest”) agreed to pay twenty million dollars ($20,000,000.00) to BP America Production Company (“BP”) for its interest in certain properties described therein. BP, Forest and Brammer Engineering, Inc. (“Brammer”) will execute a Deed and Assignment and Bill of Sale (“Assignment”), effective October 1, 2014 (“Effective Date”) to assign such properties to Forest, subject to the terms and conditions in the Assignment and stated herein below. BP, Forest and Brammer may sometimes be referred to herein individually as “Party” or collectively as “Parties”.

 

  2. The Parties agree that Brammer will not receive any cash proceeds upon execution of the Assignment. The entire twenty million dollars ($20,000,000.00) shall be paid directly to BP via wire transfer.

 

  a.

The Parties agree to withhold from the closing scheduled on October 1, 2014 any lease for which third-party consent has not been obtained as of September 30, 2014 (“Holdback Assets”). The Parties shall not close on these Holdback Assets and the $20,000,000.00 purchase price shall be reduced at closing by an amount equal to the sum of net acres from the leases comprising the Holdback Assets multiplied by seven hundred and fifty dollars ($750.00) (“Holdback Amount”). BP and Brammer shall continue to use all reasonable efforts to obtain all third-party consents not previously obtained and Forest shall provide reasonable cooperation with such efforts. As to all Holdback Assets for which appropriate consents are obtained on or before December 1, 2014, the Parties shall consummate the purchase and sale of such Holdback Assets, at which time Forest shall pay to BP an amount equal to the portion of the
