Investment proposition
Location-advantaged, control through marketing, long-term underpinnings
~A first-mover in the Williston Basin crude-by-rail business;
~Pioneer operations in New Town, North Dakota are ideally located for both outbound and inbound businesses; DAKP is small in size, but long on capabilities through joint ventures;
~The ability to purchase and sell crude oil provides more control over transloading and trucking businesses. Only JV crude oil moves through our terminal; Williston Basin reserves and production forecasts continue to increase and far outstrip pipeline capacity; Crude-by-rail is taking market share from pipelines even at reduced Brent-WTI spreads and is driving prices at the wellhead; Reliance on crude-by-rail to reach markets creates a barrier for new pipelines; DAKP continues to transform itself year-on-year and the long-term outlook suggests more upside.

Underpinning: Crude-by-Rail brings oil to market
Reduced spread drives wellhead prices to below WTI
~Marketing margins supported by the spread and limited pipeline switching available to producers As Brent to WTI spread closes, Williston Basin producers can expect less than WTI pricing Crude by rail flexibility to reach many markets creates a barrier to new pipeline construction The spread is expected to decrease to about $8 based on futures contracts Refinery pricing transportation margins marketing margins producer wellhead pricing Out-term spread has been forecast to decrease to $8 consistently in previous forecasts of the last year

Underpinning: upstream activity continues
Location-advantaged for upcoming developments & down-spacing
~Pioneer Terminal in New Town ideally located for developments in heart of Williston Basin
~Producers on the peninsula have access to a ready, reliable and optimally priced market via Pioneer About 2,000 wells are forecast to be drilled in the surrounding area Pioneer is the terminus for Canadian Pacific line or closest to the source Creating an inbound business will provide a valuable service to E&P operators

Conclusions
~Dakota Plains has created a safe, reliable and cost-advantaged crude-by-rail market for oil producers in the heart of the Williston Basin Through the strength of its joint ventures and service agreements, Dakota Plains is poised to grow dramatically in the coming years
~With Pioneer construction underway, the operations will grow from 30,000 barrels per day of capacity to up to 80,000 barrels per day by year-end 2013 Our Pioneer terminal in New Town, ND, has a geographical and logistical advantage in the main fairway of the Bakken & Three Forks;
~Business segments that include trucking, transloading, and marketing today will expand in 2014 to include storage and inbound commodity logistics services to local producers Business and competitive dynamics underpin a consensus industry view that crude-by-rail is a long-term proposition
