Attention: Mr. Ruairidh Campbell


Dear Mr. Campbell:

As requested, estimate of the extent and value of the proved reserves of crude oil, natural gas, and

natural gas liquids for certain leasehold interests of Allied Resources, Inc. (“Allied”) has been

prepared as of December 31, 2014.  The properties evaluated in this report are located in Ritchie and

Calhoun Counties, West Virginia; Edwards, Jackson and Goliad Counties, Texas.

The reserve estimates are based on review and evaluation of the geological and engineering data

provided by Allied.  Oil and gas properties located in the general area have been examined prior to

this study.  Property interests owned, production data, current costs of operation and development,

and other miscellaneous data were furnished by Allied, and are accepted as factual without

independent verification of such facts.  A field examination of the operations and physical condition

of the properties has not been made.

This engineering study is limited to the availability and accuracy of the engineering and geological

data.  Assumptions made and calculations used to generate cash flow projections are based on

engineering techniques commonly accepted by the industry.  As in all aspects of oil and gas

evaluation, there are uncertainties inherent in the interpretation of engineering data and therefore our

conclusions represent only our best-informed professional judgments.

The proved crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquid reserves included in this report are judged to

be economically producible in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and

operating conditions, and assuming continuation of the current regulatory practices, and using

conventional production methods and equipment.  Estimates of proved reserves, future net revenue,

and present value of future net revenue included in this evaluation are intended to be submitted by

Allied as part of Allied’s annual report, filed on Form 10-K.  Copies may also be submitted to

institutions and investors interested in the value of Allied’s reserves.

Definitions of proved reserves used in this evaluation are those set forth in Rule 4-10(a) of

Regulation S-X, as adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission:

“Proved oil and gas reserves”.

Proved oil and gas reserves are those quantities of

crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids which, by analysis of geoscience and engineering data,

can be estimated with reasonable certainty to be economically producible – from a given date

forward, from known reservoirs, and under existing economic conditions, operating methods, and

government regulations-prior to the time at which contracts providing the right to operate expire,

unless evidence indicates that renewal is reasonably certain, regardless of whether deterministic or

probabilistic methods are used for the estimation.”

“Proved developed oil and gas reserves.

Proved developed oil and gas reserves are reserves


can be expected to be recovered through existing wells with existing equipment and operating

methods.  In projects that extract oil and gas in other ways, can be expected to be recovered through

extraction technology installed and operational at the time of the reserves estimate.

Natural gas volumes are expressed at standard conditions of temperature and pressure applicable in

the area where the reserves are located.  Condensate reserves estimated are those obtained from

normal separator recovery.  Crude oil and natural gas liquids are stated as standard barrels of 42 U.S.

gallons per barrel.

Value of net proved reserves is expressed in terms of estimated future net revenue and present value

of future net revenue.  Future net revenue is calculated by deducting estimated operating expenses,

future development costs, and severance from the future gross revenue.  Present value of future net

revenue is calculated by discounting the future net revenue at the arbitrary rate of 10 percent per year

compounded monthly over the expected period of realization.

Present value, as expressed herein, should not be construed as fair market value, since no

consideration has been given to many factors, which influence the prices at which, petroleum

products are traded, such as taxes on operating profits, allowance for the return on the investment,

and normal risks incident to oil business.

* Small rounding error may occur

In generating cash flow projections 12-month average oil and gas prices were used as initial prices

and held constant over the life of the remaining reserves with no future price escalation due to

inflation.  Similarly 12-month average monthly operating costs were also held constant during the

lives of the properties.

Gas prices varied from $1.00 per mcf to $7.51 per mcf and oil prices varied from $52 per bbl to

$98.32 per bbl in West Virginia during 2014.  Gas prices varied from $3.08 per mcf to $6.18 and oil

prices varied from $54.23 to $101.17 per bbl in Texas.  Averages of 12-month gas and oil prices for

each lease were held constant over the life of the remaining reserves and no adjustment for the BTU

content was made in cash flow projections.

Based on cash flow projections, revenues from gas reserves account for 65 percent of the Allied’s

future gross income from proved reserves.  Therefore, total future income is more sensitive to

fluctuation in gas prices than oil prices.

Oil and gas reserve estimates in 2014 are slightly lower than those reported in 2013 report.  This is

probably due to the combination of lower prices and depletion.

Probable and Possible Reserves:

Allied’s leases in West Virginia, particularly in Ritchie County, cover parts of mostly untapped Marcellus

shale and Utica shale. Open-hole well logs indicate presence of potentially productive Marcellus shale at

a depth of 6,000 feet. Its thickness varies from 50 to 60 ft. Allied has been approached by active operators

to conduct potential joint exploration in the belief that hydrocarbon reserves in this area meet Probable

Reserve criteria. However, a valuation of these probable reserves has not been included in this report

pending the completion of a comprehensive reserve study. Allied intends to include the results of the

reserve study in its next annual report.

Sure Engineering anticipates plugging costs of approximately $5,000 per well for West Virginia

properties and $15,000 per well for the Texas wells based on depth, completion method, and location

of the wells.  Plugging costs and salvage value of the equipment have not been considered in cash

flow calculations presented in this report.

Allied also noticed that some of the gas wells have started producing relatively small volumes of oil.

It is probably liquid condensate deposition due to decreasing reservoir pressure and accumulation in

the wellbore.  Even though it is in small volumes, additional oil production from marginal gas wells,

extended projected-economic lives of such wells, and has resulted in higher estimated ultimate


Allied also noticed that some of the gas wells in West Virginia have started producing relatively small

volumes of oil. It is probably due to condensate deposition in the wellbore and occasional swabbing of the

well. Even though it is in small volumes, additional oil production from marginal gas wells helps extend

projected-economic lives of such wells.

The estimates of reserves, future net revenue, and net present value are determined according to our

understanding of applicable regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  These

estimates have not been filed with any other federal authority or agency.

Sure Engineering, LLC, and its principals are unrelated to Allied, its officers, shareholders, and

properties evaluated in this report.  We do not own a direct or indirect financial interest in Allied or

its properties.
