FEC RESOURCES INC. (PINK: FECOF) (“FEC” or the “Company”) announces that Forum Energy Limited
(“FEL”) is continuing with its preparations for the drilling of two exploratory wells on Service Contract 72 (“SC
72”) by June 2022 as required to keep SC 72 in good standing. FEL submitted an additional pre-drilling costs
funding request to its larger shareholders, FEC’s share of which will be a total of $198,620. $61,619 was due in
February 2022 and $137,001 is due in March 2022. The pre-drilling costs are to be provided to FEL via noninterest bearing loans. FEC has agreed to pay its further share of the pre-drilling costs from loans it will receive
from PXP Energy Corporation (“PXP”). These loans from PXP carry interest at Libor plus 3.5%, both interest
and principal are repayable on the earlier of a) December 31, 2023 or b) any equity issuance by FEC or c) any
sale of FEL shares by FEC or d) any third party borrowing by FEC.
As previously disclosed FEC has already advanced $224,200 to FEL for pre-drilling funding.
Shareholders should be aware that the drilling of two wells will require a significant amount of funding by those
involved in SC 72, including FEL and this could result in FEL being diluted in SC72 or FEC being diluted in FEL
or both in the event FEL or FEC respectively is unable to fund its share of such funding for any reason whatsoever
including inability to comply with the payment terms set above.
On behalf of the Board of,
FEC Resources Inc.
