The Parcel number is 2406-184-00-014 and the parcel size is 536.146 acres in “Grazing-Agricultural” zoning. The South Leverich 13-09 Oil and Gas Development Plan (“OGDP”) is a 799.19-acre OGDP consisting of 6.43 acres of Surface Lands and 799.19 acres of Mineral Lands located in Lots 1-4, NE¼NW¼, W½NE¼, NE¼NE¼, SE¼NW¼, E½SW¼ of Section 18, Township 7 South, Range 93 West, 6th P.M., and SE¼NW¼, SW¼NE¼, NW¼SE¼, Lots 3-4, and E½ SW¼ of Section 13, and E½NW¼ of Section 24, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M., Garfield County Colorado. The South Leverich 13-09 pad is an existing oil and gas location (COGCC Loc ID# 335045) with four (4) natural gas wells producing from the underlying Fee lease. The existing Oil and Gas Location is located on resource / rangeland within Lot 3 and Lot 4 of Section 13, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M., within Garfield County, Colorado. Of the twenty-one (21) proposed wells planned on this location, two (2) wells will be directionally drilled into Federal Lease COC-63721, and nineteen (19) wells will be directionally drilled into the underlying Fee lease or adjacent Fee leases. The South Leverich 13-09 pad will be reconstructed and slightly expanded to accommodate the development of the proposed wells. The existing access road from Garfield County Road 317/317A will continue to be used to access the oil and gas location. In support of the South Leverich 13-09 development, TEP will utilize three (3) existing oil and gas locations, the Youberg RU 44-7 well pad, Youberg SR 43-12 well pad, and the Beaver Creek Pit, as support facilities during drilling, completion, and / or production operations associated with the proposed wells on the South Leverich 13-09 pad. The existing Youberg RU 44-7 pad (COGCC Loc ID# 439173) will be utilized as a remote frac support location for well stimulation operations for the proposed new directional wells on the South Leverich 13-09 pad. The Youberg RU 44-7 pad is located on private surface (Youberg Beaver Creek Ranch L.P.) in the SE¼SE¼ of Section 7, Township 7 South, Range 93 West, 6th P.M. The Youberg RU 44-7 pad currently supports production operations for thirteen (13) existing natural gas wells and has been utilized to support remote well completion operations for multiple oil and gas locations in recent years. The existing Youberg SR 43-12 pad (COGCC Loc ID# 413683) will be utilized as a produced water storage and transport facility where produced water will be temporarily stored and pumped before entering TEP’s water management system. The Youberg SR 43-12 pad is located on private surface (Youberg Beaver Creek Ranch L.P.) in Lot 6 of Section 12, Township 7 South, Range 94 West and Lot 3 of Section 7, Township 7 South, Range 93 West, 6th P.M. The Youberg SR 43-12 pad currently supports production operations for twenty (20) existing natural gas wells. 5 Finally, the Beaver Creek Pit (CWMF: Beaver Creek 11-7-793; COGCC Facility ID# 448367) will be utilized for temporary storage and transport of produced water for well completion operations for the twenty-one (21) proposed wells on the South Leverich 13-09 pad. The Beaver Creek Pit is an existing oil and gas location located on private surface (Youberg Beaver Creek Ranch, L.P.) in Lot 1 of Section 7, Township 7 South, Range 93 West, 6th P.M.

Alff SO!l!h Lewltdl iHJJ}PiJtl Gunnison 3,500 Feet 6 To support production operations on the South Leverich 13-09 pad, Summit Midstream (“Summit”) will install one (1) eight-inch (8”) steel natural gas pipeline (approx. 2,125 feet) from the proposed meter on the South Leverich 13-09 pad to their existing / proposed gas gathering system located south of the South Leverich 13-09 pad. The proposed tie-in point will be located on TEP surface south of the South Leverich 13-09 pad. TEP will install one (1) six-inch (6”) FlexPipe water pipeline (approx. 450 feet) from the separators on the South Leverich 13-09 pad to the existing pipeline corridor adjacent to the pad. The proposed off-location pipelines will be installed within a fifty-foot (50’) pipeline Right-of-Way (“ROW”) located on property owned by TEP and Gordman Leverich, LLP. TEP will install several on-location pipelines to support onsite production operations which are described in detail below. A pipeline application is not required since the proposed pipelines do not meet the length and diameter requirements in Section 9-101 of the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code. Well completion operations associated with the proposed wells on the South Leverich 13-09 pad will be conducted via simultaneous operations (“SIMOPS”) from the existing Youberg RU 44-7 pad. Water will be transported to the Youberg RU 44-7 pad via existing water pipelines operated and maintained by TEP. TEP will install five (5) four-and-one-half-inch (4.5”) steel temporary surface frac lines from the Youberg RU 44-7 pad to the South Leverich 13-09 pad to support remote frac and flowback operations. Temporary surface frac lines will be installed following the existing access road toward the Federal RU 23-17 pad, an existing pipeline ROW to the Caerus O- 18 pad, and then the existing access roads to the South Leverich 13-09 pad. Recycled produced water would be pumped from existing TEP operated water management facilities to the Youberg RU 44-7 pad during completions operations. Flowback water will be processed through phase separation equipment and transported via pipeline either to the Youberg RU 44-7 pad for recycling for future well completion operations, or transported to TEP’s water management facilities for processing, reuse, recycling, and / or disposal. Construction activities for the South Leverich 13-09 pad and the associated support facilities are scheduled to begin in November 2022 and are expected to take approximately sixty (60) days to complete. Drilling operations for the twenty-one (21) proposed direction wells will begin in March 2023. Since SIMOPS is planned for development of these wells, well completion operations will begin in May 2023. Drilling operations are expected to take approximately one hundred and twenty-one (121) days and should be completed in July 2023. Well completion operations are expected to take approximately two hundred and ten (210) days and should be completed in December 2023. Reclamation of the South Leverich 13-09 pad will be completed in May 2024, within six (6) months following completion of well construction and stimulation activities. Site reclamation is dependent on weather conditions and project scheduling. Development may be accelerated or delayed based on market conditions and company constraints. Section 9-201 - Oil and Gas Permit Per the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code, Division 2. Oil and Gas Code amendment, adopted July 6, 2021, under Section 9-201.F.1., an oil and gas project that meets 7 criteria pursuant to COGCC Rule 304.b.(2).B.i. through viii. and x., and requires the submittal of an Alternative Location Analysis (“ALA”), must submit an Oil and Gas Permit. During the planning of the South Leverich 13-09 pad, TEP reviewed the Alternative Location Analysis (“ALA”) Criteria outlined under COGCC Rule 304.b.(2).B and determined that criteria i., Residential Building Unit (“RBU”) within 2,000 feet of the Working Pad Surface (“WPS”), and vi.aa, Oil and Gas Location within a surface water supply area applies to the proposed project. As required under Section 9-203.B., TEP initiated a request for a Pre-Conference Hearing and completed an ALA, which initially included the evaluation of two (2) alternative locations, however the draft ALA has been revised to include the evaluation of four (4) alternative locations within the vicinity of the proposed South Leverich 13-09 pad, as summarized below. A copy of the amended City of Rifle Ordinance 7-2018 (See Appendix J) related to the decommissioning of the Beaver Creek Water Plant and the water supply intake is included with this Oil and Gas Permit application to specifically address the requirements under COGCC Rule 304.b.(2).B.vi.aa and Garfield County’s Oil and Gas Code 9-201.F.1. TEP is not seeking a variance from noise or lighting requirements. Pre-Application Conference (Section 9-203.A) & Alternative Location Analysis (Section 9- 203.B.1.) On September 15, 2021, TEP completed a pre-application conference with Garfield County. During the meeting TEP presented the proposed development plan for the South Leverich 13- 09 pad and reviewed the initial draft of the ALA. (Please see Appendix F, Garfield County Pre- Application Conference Summary Letter, for a detailed summary (prepared by Garfield County) of discussions held during the pre-application conference meeting.) In response to staff comments, a copy of the revised ALA is included in Appendix K of this Oil and Gas permit application. The ALA prepared by TEP includes the evaluation of all ALA criteria listed under COGCC Rule 304.b.(2).B, and the well location and siting requirements under COGCC Rule 604. TEP evaluated each alternative based on landscape level characteristics (i.e. slope) and mineral development potential. In addition to providing the initial ALA, during the pre-application conference, in accordance with Section 9-203.B.1 of the Oil and Gas Code, TEP informed Garfield County staff that they determined there are no Federal, State, or local government designated parks or open spaces within the proposed area of mineral development. TEP has reviewed both the COGCC and CDPHE spill/remediation records and did not find any environmental contamination locations within the proposed area of mineral development. There are no open COGCC remediation projects located within the area of proposed mineral development. A review of the CDPHE spill reports did not reveal any documented incidents within the area of proposed mineral development. Neighborhood Meeting (Section 9-203.D) As required under Section 9-203.D. of the Garfield County Land Use and Development Code, following the pre-application conference, on October 28, 2021, TEP conducted a pre-application 8 Neighborhood Meeting with surface owners and tenants of all properties within 2,000 of the proposed working pad surface of the oil and gas location as required by Section 9-203.D. Please see Appendix G, Neighborhood Meeting Summary, for a detailed summary of discussion held during this meeting. As demonstrated in the Neighborhood Meeting notes and an audio recording included with the permit submission, conversations with landowners were supportive of the South Leverich 13-09 pad. Oil and Gas Permit Application Materials (Section 9-204) On May 24, 2022, prior to submittal of the Oil and Gas Development Plan (OGDP) application and Oil and Gas Location Assessment (Form 2A) to COGCC, TEP sent formal notice to Garfield County, the local government with land use authority over siting of the proposed South Leverich 13-09 pad, as required by COGCC Rule 302.e and Rule 303.e.(2) & (3). In preparation for submittal of this Oil and Gas Permit application, TEP determined through the ALA process that the existing South Leverich 13-09 pad is the Preferred Alternative, as this location minimizes the potential impact to public health, safety, welfare, the environment, and wildlife resources, while also maximizing the potential for mineral development. The existing South Leverich 13-09 pad has actively producing wells currently on location and utilizing this location would minimize the amount of new surface disturbance required for development of the proposed minerals and reduces landscape level environmental impacts. As noted in the ALA, the South Leverich 13-09 pad provides the same level of protection for wildlife resources as the four (4) alternative locations. The South Leverich 13-09 pad and all four (4) alternative locations are located outside of High Priority Habitat (HPH) and are within similar proximity to HPH boundaries within the project area. The South Leverich 13-09 pad also minimizes potential impacts to water resources based on proximity to surface water features. TEP has consulted with all the residential building unit (“RBU”) owners within 2,000 feet of the South Leverich 13-09 pad and has received signed Informed Consent letters from each RBU owner per COGCC Rule 604.b.(1). Copies of the Informed Consent Letters are included in Appendix I. TEP has also entered into a surface use agreement (“SUA”) with the surface owner (Gordman Leverich, LLP) to develop the twenty-one (21) proposed natural gas wells on the South Leverich 13-09 pad, and this location is the preferred location by the surface owner due to the South Leverich 13-09 being an existing location and minimizes new disturbance on the surface owner’s property.

Oil and Gas code amendments adopted July 6, 2021, on September 15, 2021, Garfield County and its representatives held a pre­ application conference with TEP Rocky Mountain, LLC. ("TEP") and representatives from the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission ("COGCC"). Garfield County Land Use and Development Code Section 9-203.A. requires a pre-application process for all new or modified oil and gas operations. The required pre-application conference was held in advance of the anticipated submittal of TE P's application for an oil and gas permit with the COGCC for their South Leverich 13-09 Pad located in Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M., Section 13: SW¼NE¼, Garfield County, Colorado. On September 1, 2021, TEP representative Adam Tankersley requested, in writing, a Pre­ Application Conference with Garfield County per Section 9-203.A. Included in TEP's request was the Pre-Application Request Letter and the Pre-Application materials required per Section 9- 203.B.1 of Garfield Land Use Code, which included the Alternative Location Analysis Narrative, Alternative Location Analysis Exhibits, and an Alternative Location Analysis Data Table. Garfield County set and confirmed the pre-application conference for September 15, 2021, at 2:00 PM. On September 15, 2021, Garfield County its representatives hosted the pre-application conference which included representatives from TEP and the COGCC. TEP presented their proposed permit location for South Leverich 13-09 Pad. The permit requires an Alternative Location Analysis ("ALA") under COGCC Rule 304.b.(2).8 1 due to the location's proximity being within 2,000 ft. of Building Units ("BU"). As part of TEP's presentation, representatives discussed the alternative locations reviewed as part of ALA process, presented the advantages and disadvantages of each location, and answered questions. TEP's ALA included the evaluation of two (2) alternative locations within the vicinity of the proposed South Leverich 13-09 pad. The ALA conducted by TEP included the evaluation of all ALA criteria listed under Rule 304.b.(2).B and the well location and siting requirements under Rule 604. Additionally, TEP evaluated each alternative based on landscape level characteristics (i.e. slope) and mineral development potential. South Leverich 13-09 Pad The South Leverich 13-09 Pad is an existing oil and gas location located within Lot 3 and Lot 4 of Section 13, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M. and currently supports production operations for four (4) existing natural gas wells. TEP is proposing to reconstruct and expand the existing South Leverich 13-09 pad to develop twenty-one (21) additional natural gas wells. The South Leverich 13-09 Pad is located on private surface (Gordman Leverich, LLP). TEP stated the advantages for the proposed location as follows: 1)An existing oil and gas location. 1 COGCC Rule 304.b.{2) B. FORM 2A, Oil and Gas Location Assessment Application Information Requirements. All Form 2As will include the following information, unless otherwise provided in a Commission Order approving a CAP pursuant to Rule 314. Alternative Location Analysis. B. Alternative Location Analysis Criteria. 108 Eighth Street, Suite 401 Glenwood Springs, Colorado 81601 (970)945-8212 2)New surface disturbance would be minimized. 3)The location maximizes mineral development potential and the use of existing infrastructure. 4)Distance to Residential Building Units. (Nearest building unit is 1,160 feet) 5)Residential Building Unit owners will have the opportunity to provide signed informed consent for this location. 6)Initiated a Surface Use Agreement. 7)Location is outside of High Priority Habitat. 8)Location is outside of Disproportionately Impacted Communities. 9)Location is within the External Buffer of the Beaver Creek surface water supply area; City of Rifle Ordinance 7-2018 eliminated the Beaver Creek potable water diversion point. TEP also discussed what their evaluation showed as the sole disadvantage: 1)The South Leverich 13-09 pad is located within 2,000 feet of four (4) residential building units. The ALA process also required TEP to review two other possible locations. Proposed Alternative 1 would be a new Oil and Gas Location located on private surface (Gordman Leverich, LLP) within Lot 2 of Section 13, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M. and Alternative 2 is located on private surface within SW¼SW¼ of Section 13, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M. TEP evaluated the advantages and disadvantages of each proposed alternative. Based on their evaluation and the currently available information, TEP believes that the South Leverich 13-09 pad is the best possible oil and gas location for development of the proposed minerals and will be the best location to minimize the overall impacts to public health, safety, welfare, the environment and wildlife resources. During the pre-application conference, TEP discussed their overall plan for development of the proposed location. The proposed site is one of two future locations that will be part of TEP's COGCC OGDP application. The South Leverich 13-09 Pad is an existing pad, with four producing wells. As part of the development of the pad TEP would need to install off-location produced water lines from the existing pad up to the SR 43-12 pad, located to the north of the South Leverich pad. The SR 43-12 pad has an existing tank battery for production operations that TEP will utilize for their operations. The applicant would also need to install a gas line to the south of the existing South Leverich pad, which would tie into an existing Summit 12" gas line. Summit would be in charge of the installation of the new tie-in line. Well completions would be conducted remotely from the RU-44-7 pad, which is also an existing location and would not require any expansion. Temporary surface frac lines will be installed from the RU-44-7 pad to the South Leverich pad using existing roads and pipeline rights-of-way. TEP also held initial conversations with Colorado Parks and Wildlife ("CPW') and the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") in April of 2021 and in June of 2021 to discuss the proposed development plan. There will be slight expansion of the existing pad to the north and west to support the proposed additional wells. As part of the ALA evaluation process, TEP evaluated all possible impacts of the proposed expansion identifying the only issues as being the Building Units within 2000' of the 108 Eighth Street, Suite 401 Glenwood Springs, Colorado 81601 (970)945-8212 location and the public water supply intake at Beaver Creek which had been previously decommissioned by the City of Rifle. All necessary documentation for the foregoing will be provided by the applicant. There are four building units within proximity of the South Leverich 13-09. Most of the BUs are not occupied full-time, apart from the Scott and Cindy Fischer property, which will require TEP to get a surface use agreement and informed consent. TEP presented their Well Siting Optimization Map which defines their optimal reach for lateral wells. The map illustrates the maximum reach as being ~3,500 ' at the South Leverich 13-09 pad, allowing for the most optimal reach for all the proposed 21 wells. Proposed alternative location (1) can only reach 17 bottom hole locations and proposed alternative (2) Is only capable of reaching 13 bottom hole locations . There is also a cabin in close proximity to proposed alternative (2). Evaluation of High Priority Habitat ("HPH") is required when located in proximity to a proposed location. TEP evaluated the HPH as required by rule and concluded that there will be no substantial impact. There will be resulting traffic from this development, and TEP has put together a mitigation plan which has been approved by CPW. With regard to the Beaver Creek external buffer for public water system intake, the City of Rifle has relinquished ownership and use of the intake and related documentation will be provided with the application. Additionally, other water resources were represented on the map and TEP will provide details on the proximity to existing surface water and springs for each location. At the conclusion of the TEP presentation Garfield County initiated questions. Mr. Wynn wanted clarification on the bottom hole reach limitations for both alternative locations which TEP provided. Ms . Fanning, consultant working on behalf of Garfield County , asked about what BMPs were planned given the proposed location's proximity to aquatic species. TEP clarified that BMPs will be covered in their wildlife protection plan. Garfield County also requested TEP to update all their tables to provide the specific metrics specified in the rules for measuring distances to building units, surface waters, etc. in order to provide transparency to the public and other stakeholders. Additionally, Garfield requested clarification surrounding the Re.aver Creek public water system intake to confirm it will no longer be utilized as future source of water. TEP agreed to provide documentation in the final application . Additionally, Ms. Fanning noted that the wells are both fee and federal mineral and questioned if a NEPA analysis had been conducted. TEP stated that the NEPA analysis has not yet been conducted and BLM will be facilitating the study which should commence within the month of October. Further, this will be a single occupancy submittal and TEP is meeting with the BLM on September 28th . Regarding Alternative Location (2), TEP stated the location is within 500' of a Building Unit and would require informed consent to proceed. TEP met with landowners, the McKee family, and noted that they would likely not agree to the proposed site. As TEP would need both surface owner consent and waiver, TEP's other location proves to be a more appropriate location. Garfield County representative Glenn Hartmann requested that an additional narrative regarding the communication with landowners and neighbors be included in the application as it would be applicable to any final decision. Mr. Hartmann also requested additional information associated 108 Eighth Street, Suite 401 Glenwood Springs, Colorado 81601 (970) 945-8212 with the development's infrastructure (e.g., pipelines/flowlines) be included. TEP spoke to the existing location's infrastructure already in place and what additional infrastructure would be needed to re-develop the existing pad 's limited expans ion. Ms . Sheryl Bower asked whether additional permitting for right of ways be needed and TEP stated that both alternative locations will require significantly more disturbance than the one being proposed. The alternative locations are not locations with any in-place infrastructure and Alternative (2) would require installation of all new pipelines . Mr. Hartman also asked if TEP was able to quantify the amount of additional disturbance that would be needed, i.e ., estimate the extent of the disturbance based on more site-specific impacts. (acreage, material, areas of reclamation, etc.). Ms. Bower requested TEP discuss their traffic plans. TEP noted that traffic will increase during drilling and completion phases and will utilize county roads . TEP did not have exact traffic counts available at the conference but committed to having the information available at the time of application. Mr. Hartmann made specific note that Garfield County will require a detailed traffic analysis , including roadways , conditions , and access and any mitigation available . COGCC representatives also requested supplemental information from TEP. Ms. Sabrina Trask asked TEP to discuss applicable Colorado Parks and Wildlife ("CPW') BMPs and further if any of those BMPs would have associated timing limitations. TEP stated that there were no specific wildlife timing limitations since these sites are not within HPH. Ms. Trask then followed up about the single occupation for the permit and what the anticipated timeline is for the operations to start . TEP stated that their plan would be to commence pad construction in June of 2022, with planned spudding in August 2022. Mr. Hartmann requested confirmation of the number of locations proposed. TEP confirmed there will be two locations requiring a Form 2A , with only one of those requiring an ALA . The RU-44- 77 pad will require a Sundry for the applicant to use the pad as a remote frac site . The SR-43-12 existing location should only require a Sundry submittal. All locations are existing pads. The proposed Honey 19-05 pad that does not require an ALA will be developed first , and the South Leverich 13-09 pad construction will be subsequent. The timing represented is inclusive of the permit prep as well as the time to construct. TEP plans to submit the permits concurrently with Garfield and COGCC. The current plan is to submit the COGCC OGDP application prior to getting Garfield County approval but this will not delay the review at the COGCC. Ms. Bower clarified that the County review time is business days not calendar days to clarify the number of days identified in TEP 's current Gant chart. Further discussion was had on the TEP representation of the distances to HPH, surface water, and aquatic habitat. Garfield made clear that additional narrative is necessary explaining the table, distances, and plans to be included in their application. Lastly, TEP had submitted a list of questions prior to the pre-application conference . Those questions and answered to those questions are detailed in the Table I below. 108 Eighth Street, Suite 401 Glenwood Springs, Colorado 8160 I (970) 945-8212 Tab le I.

Hotard Surface Team Lead Page 1 of 1 Summary of TEP Rocky Mountain LLC Neighborhood Meeting for the South Leverich 13-09 Pad Required by Garfield County Land Use Development Code (Oil and Gas Code) 9-203 D. On September 15, 2021, Garfield County hosted the TEP Rocky Mountain LLC (“TEP”) pre-application conference which included representatives from TEP and the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (“COGCC”). TEP presented their proposed permit location for the South Leverich 13-09 pad. The South Leverich 13-09 pad is an existing oil and gas pad located on private surface within Lot 3 (NE¼SE¼) and Lot 4 (SE¼SE¼) of Section 13, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M. The South Leverich 13-09 pad currently supports production for four (4) existing natural gas wells and TEP’s new proposal is to drill twenty-one (21) additional natural gas wells on the pad. One of the Garfield County Land Use Change permit requirements is that TEP conduct a neighborhood meeting for all parcels located within 2,000 feet of the proposed South Leverich 13-09 pad. TEP scheduled a neighborhood meeting on October 28th, 2021 for landowners that are within the 2,000 foot requirement. The meeting was held in the Roan Plateau Room at the Garfield County Department of Human Services Building from 6pm to 8pm in Rifle Colorado. A summary of the meeting was created by the TEP contractor Vanoco (Mr. Brian Macke and Mr. Wade Haerle) and is listed below. The following is a summary of the TEP Neighborhood Meeting that was conducted pursuant to the Garfield County Land Use Development Code 9-203 D for the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad. Meeting Location: Roan Plateau Room, Garfield County Department of Human Services Building, 195 W. 14th Street, Rifle, Colorado. Meeting Date: October 28, 2021 Meeting Start Time: 6:06 PM MDT Neighborhood Meeting Notice and Meeting Attendees: Neighbors who were sent Notice of the Meeting: Mike and Cheryl Rainey – Landowner Joel Karr – Landowner CPX Piceance Holdings LLC (Attn: Nick Kurtenback) - Landowner Joel and Cindy Fishcer – Landowner Chris Leverich – Landowner TEP Rocky Mountain LLC (Attn: Bryan S.

A formal certified mail notice was not sent to the county. TEP Rocky Mountain LLC (TEP) Representatives: Bryan Hotard – TEP Adan Tankersley - TEP Wade Haerle – (Vanoco Consultant to TEP) Brian Macke – (Vanoco Consultant to TEP) Existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad Legal description Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M. Section 13: Lot 3 (NE¼SE¼) and Lot 4 (SE¼SE¼) Garfield County, Colorado Meeting Notes: There were detailed large format maps showing the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad location and the surrounding lands, including other existing oil and gas infrastructure, available for review as the meeting attendees arrived at the meeting and after the meeting. A hand-out that included all the presentation materials used during the meeting was provided to all of the meeting attendees. The handouts are attached to this summary. A video projector and large screen was used for the presentation materials, and the meeting was audio recorded as required by the Code. A copy of the audio recording will be provided with this summary. Mr. Hotard opened the meeting with an overview of the purpose of the meeting. He explained that the purpose of the meeting was to comply with the Garfield County Land Use Development Code requirements to inform all landowners within 2,000 feet of the proposed oil and gas location of TEP’s development plans to drill and complete twenty one (21) new wells from the existing South Leverich 13- 09 Pad. He also explained that an important purpose of the meeting was to answer any questions or concerns by the neighbors regarding the proposed project. Mr. Tankersley provided a video presentation of a detailed overview of the project. The presentation included narrative descriptions and he explained TEP’s plans to reconstruct the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad to drill, complete, and produce twenty one (21) proposed new natural gas wells. He explained that access to the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad is via Garfield County Road 317. Mr. Tankersley described the plans to expand the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad to accommodate the twenty one (21) new proposed additional wells. He discussed the plans to install a new eight inch (8”) natural gas pipeline and a four inch (4”) produced water pipeline, both of which will tie into the existing pipelines at the Honea Pad. He described how the water line will greatly reduce the need for truck traffic during the production phase. Mr. Tankersley described that there are plans to install five (5) four and one half inch (4.5”) steel temporary surface frac lines from the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad to the existing RU 44-7 Pad to the northeast which will be used for remote well completion operations. The RU 44-7 existing pad is located in the NE¼SE¼ and SE¼SE¼ of Section 7 in Township 7 South, Range 93 West, 6th P.M. He explained how utilizing the existing RU 44-7 Pad will greatly lessen impacts to the neighborhood during that time because the RU 44-7 Pad turn off of CR 317 is lower than all the meeting attendee’s property, meaning that all the completions operations traffic will not be on the upper portion of CR 317 where there houses are. Mr. Tankersley provided an outline of the estimated timing of all phases of the operations, which included the South Leverich 13-09 pad and facility re-construction (beginning June 2022, lasting for 2 months); drilling operations (beginning December 2022, lasting for 4 months); completion operations (beginning March 2023, lasting for 5 months); production operations (beginning July 2023, lasting for the life of the wells); interim reclamation (beginning November 2023, lasting for 1 month) and final reclamation (following the plugging and abandonment of the wells). Mike Rainey asked questions about how road maintenance would be conducted, and referenced a recent truck accident. Mr. Hotard responded that TEP intends to work closely with the County to help with road maintenance, and that truck drivers are given instructions to abide by the slower speed limits in the area. Mr. Tankersley provided a presentation about the oil and gas siting considerations that were given during the Alternate Location Analysis (“ALA”) that was performed to comply with Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (“COGCC”) requirements. He explained that the considerations were subsurface constraints that affect well counts from a site, the use of existing oil and gas locations, the use of existing facilities and pipeline infrastructure, topography, proximity to resources such as wildlife habitat and water resources, and proximity to Residential Building Units, High Occupancy Building Units, Disproportionately Impacted Communities, schools, and other such features. He explained that TEP prefers to utilize existing oil and gas locations whenever possible to minimize the overall footprint of their operations on the landscape. Mr. Tankersley explained that the ALA included the evaluation of two (2) alternate locations in the vicinity of the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad. Alternative 1, which would be a newly constructed pad to the north of the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad on the Leverich property. This Pad would only allow for the development of seventeen (17) wells, would still need to be accessed from Garfield County Road 317, would have similar facility requirements, and would allow for remote completion operations from the RU 44-7 Pad. Alternative 2 would be a newly constructed pad to the west of the existing South Leverich 13- 09 Pad in the Beaver Creek Highlands subdivision on TEP property adjacent to the McKee property. This Pad would only allow for the development of thirteen (13) wells, would still need to be accessed from Garfield County Road 317 (which would require road improvements), would have similar facility requirements, and would be completed with frac equipment either on the pad or remotely from a nearby pad. This location is also in close proximity (within 500 Ft.) to a nearby Residential Building Unit on the McKee property. Mr. Rainey asked a question about whether or not the drilling of the wells would affect the groundwater supply. Mr. Hotard explained that the way the wells are constructed protects the groundwater in the area and that groundwater will be tested in the area before the operations. Mr. Tankersley referred to an Alternative Locations map showing Residential Building Unit Setbacks, photos of the view of Residential Building Units that are to the northwest of the South Leverich 13-09 Pad on the Fischer and Rainey properties, a map showing how the Well Siting Optimization analysis is done, and a map showing how the topographic considerations are analyzed. Mr. Hotard discussed a table that showed a summary of the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed locations and the two (2) Alternate Locations that were considered in the ALA analysis. Both Mr. Hotard and Mr. Tankersley concluded by saying that the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad is the best location with many greater advantages and far fewer disadvantages than the other Alternate Locations, especially considering new surface disturbance and impact on the neighbors. Question from Mr. Rainey: Would the Beaver Creek Road be used for the Alternative 1 Location? Response by Mr. Hotard: Yes Comment by Chris Leverich: TEP has been great to work with. Comment by Mr. Rainey – I have no problems with gas wells. The meeting was then opened up for questions and comments. Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: Will you expand the Leverich 13-09 Pad? Response by Mr. Tankersley: Yes, but it will be minimal. Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: Will the drilling rig be much taller than before, will it be noisier, and will you be drilling in summer? Responses by Mr. Tankersley: The rig will not be much taller and will not be noisier. Response by Mr. Hotard: The drilling will occur in December. Question by Mr. Leverich: He wants his neighbors to be happy. Will there be big lights on the rig? Response by Mr. Hotard: You will see the upper portion of the rig but the lighting will be mitigated and adjusted if needed after installing. Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: How deep will the wells be? Our water well is about 180 feet deep and they sit about 160 feet above the creek. They had a 15-20 gpm water well. Response by Mr. Hotard: The proposed twenty one (21) wells will be drilled to about 10,000 feet deep. The COGCC requires water well and spring water sampling before drilling and TEP will be doing that. Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: How much traffic will there be? Response by Mr. Hotard: The drilling rig will have about 50-60 loads during both rig moves (going in and coming out). Crew shift changes will be 6 am and 6 pm – the rig operates 24 hours a day. Question by Mr. Rainey: Do you pay the County for road maintenance? Response by Mr. Hotard: The County has bladed the road themselves, but TEP has also assisted the county with road maintenance at times. Question by Mr. Leverich: Relative to current road traffic with all of the belly dump trucks – how will your traffic compare? Response by Mr. Hotard: There will be a water truck now and then, a cementing crew at times – generally about the same traffic but spread out over time. The recent belly dumps for gravel all came in at the same time to reduce the total impact during a recent new pad and road building project up Beaver Creek – since the access to the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad is an existing road there will not need so much road construction equipment. Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: Will you send notice to the neighbors when you start the work? Response by Mr. Hotard: Yes Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: Will you develop a plan for road maintenance? Response by Mr. Hotard: It will be a non-issue for him to sit down with the Garfield County Road and Bridge folks to work on a plan. Question by Mrs. Cindy Fischer: Are all of the company trucks marked? Response by Mr. Hotard: Not all, but if you see a problem with a vehicle please call him and describe the vehicle with a date and time of the issue and he will look into it. Question by Mr. Leverich: Will there be any compression installed at the location? Response by Mr. Hotard: No – they will be using remote compression. Comment by Mr. Rainey: He has great hearing and can hear some even distant TEP operations at times. Comment by Mrs. Rainey: Most of their concerns are about water quality and road maintenance. Comment by Bryan Clark: He thinks that their preferred location (the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad) is a good choice. Question by Mr. Leverich: Does CPX and TEP cooperate in their operations? Response by Mr. Hotard: Yes Mr. Hotard closed the meeting by thanking the attendees and letting them know that it is all about communication, and they would be happy to set up a rig tour for the neighbors if they like. He passed out his business cards and invited them all to call him any time. The meeting adjourned at approximately 7:30 PM MDT Attached to this summary is a copy of the sign in sheet and the handouts from the meeting. Another requirement of the COGCC permit and the Garfield County Land Use Change permit was for TEP to obtain an Informed Consent Letter from any building unit owner within 2,000 feet of the TEP proposed South Leverich 13-09 pad. There are three (3) building unit owners within 2,000 feet of the proposed South Leverich 13-09 pad, which are depicted below. #1.) Mr. Joel Fischer and Mrs. Cindy Fischer (Parcel #2405-134-00-102) #2.) Mr. Chris Leverich – Gordman Leverich LLLP (Parcel #2403-184-00-014) #3.) TEP Rocky Mountain LLC (Parcel #2403-192-00-027) A fully executed copy of each Informed Consent Letter for the building unit owners listed above is attached to this summary. TEP started working with Mr. Chris Leverich during the fall of 2021 on the proposed drilling of the twenty-one (21) new natural gas wells on the South Leverich 13-09 pad. TEP and Mr. Leverich had multiple on-sites on the property and we able to negotiate an agreement for our proposed operations. A copy of the Memorandum of Fifth Amendment to Access, Surface Damage and Use Agreement was recorded in the official records of Garfield County at Reception number 972358. South Leverich 13-09 Pad Neighborhood Meeting October 28, 2021 TER Meeting Agenda 1.Introduction 2.Purpose of Meeting 3.Project Overview 4.Alternative Location Analysis 5.Questions TER Purpose On July 6, 2021, Garfield County adopted changes to the Land Use and Development Code which requires Operators to obtain an Oil and Gas Permit for any oil and gas location that triggers an Alternative Location Analysis with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission ("COGCC") or if this Operator is seeking a variance to the Noise and / or Lighting standards in the COGCC Rules. TEP Rocky Mountain LLC ("TEP") is proposing to drill 21 additional wells from the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad. The South Leverich 13-09 pad is located within 2000’ of Residential Building Units ("RBU"), which triggers an Alternative Location Analysis ("ALA") with the COGCC and a Garfield County Oil and Gas Permit. Purpose of Neighborhood Meeting: 1)Inform all landowners, within 2000’ of the existing oil and gas location, of TEP’s development plans to drill and complete 21 new wells from the South Leverich 13-09 Pad. 2)Answer any questions or concerns any meeting participant has regarding the proposed project. 3)Adhere to the requirements of the Garfield County Land Use Code by holding a recorded neighborhood meeting to gather feedback from participants on the proposed development plan. TER Project Overview TEP is proposing to reconstruct the existing South Leverich 13-09 Pad, located within Lot 3 (NE¼SE¼) and Lot 4 (SE¼SE¼) of Section 13, Township 7 South, Range 94 West, 6th P.M., to drill, complete, and produce 21 proposed new natural gas wells.

Section 13: Lot 3 (NE¼SE¼), Lot 4 (SE¼SE¼) Garfield County, Colorado REQUEST FOR INFORMED CONSENT Dear Mr. and Mrs. Fischer: Thank you for taking the time to meet with TEP Rocky Mountain LLC (“TEP”) on October 28th, 2021 regarding TEP’s proposal to drill twenty one (21) new wells on the existing South Leverich 13-09 pad located near your property. We appreciate our long standing relationship and the open communication that makes those operations successful for all parties involved. As you know, these operations are regulated by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (“COGCC”), which established new Rules that went into effect on January 15, 2021 that govern new and existing development. Because of these new rules, TEP must have an approved Oil and Gas Development Plan (“OGDP”) to conduct new oil and gas operations. An approved OGDP gives an operator permission to build one or more new oil and gas locations, or expand existing locations, which may include well pads where oil and gas wells may be drilled. COGCC’s rules generally do not allow new oil and gas development within 2,000 feet of a residential or high-occupancy building units such as a home or apartment building.1 This is the 2,000 foot siting requirement pursuant to COGCC Rule 604.b. However, there are some exceptions to this siting requirement. One exception is if the owners and tenants of every occupied building unit within 2,000 feet of the proposed development provide informed consent for the proposed oil and gas operations. You are receiving this letter because TEP plans to submit an application to the COGCC for 1 The terms “building” and “home” in this letter include both the COGCC defined terms residential building units and high-occupancy building units. Because some high-occupancy building units are commercial buildings like nursing homes and hospitals, this letter uses the term “live” to refer to “owning,” “living in,” and “working in” a home or building. TER TEP Rocky Mountain LLC 1058 County Road 215 Parachute, CO 81635 Page 2 of 5 approval of the South Leverich 13-09 OGDP that proposes new oil and gas operations on the existing South Leverich 13-09 pad located within 2,000 of the building where you live. There are two specific COGCC rules that address informed consent of building owners or tenants. The rule that applies in your case is: COGCC Rule 604.b.(1), because the operator is proposing to build an oil and gas location (known as a “working pad surface”) between 500 and 2,000 feet from the building that you live in. TEP is asking for your informed consent to this proposed OGDP. If you choose to provide consent, this letter will be included in the application materials and may be made public. You are not required to consent to the development proposed near your home. If you do not consent, TEP may decide to pursue development at a different location, or may revise their proposal to meet additional COGCC conditions. TEP may also choose to undergo a more stringent application process before the COGCC. This may involve seeking a “variance” from the Commission’s rules, or demonstrating that its plans for the operations will avoid, minimize, or mitigate impacts on nearby residents through a process governed by COGCC Rule 604.b.(4). So, if you do not consent, it is still possible that TEP will obtain the COGCC’s permission to conduct the oil and gas operations. Please note that TEP must also obtain permission from your local government to conduct the oil and gas operations if your local government has its own oil and gas permitting process. The relevant local government(s) for this OGDP application is Garfield County. Under the rules of this local government, an Oil and Gas Permit is required. TEP intends to submit an Oil and Gas Permit per Garfield County Land Use Regulations 9-201, which requires application of a permit for which the COGCC will require an Alternative Location Analysis pursuant to COGCC Rule 304.b(2)B. To obtain your informed consent, TEP is required to provide you information about the nature, timeline, and scope of the oil and gas development that it proposes to conduct near your home, and the potential impacts that you may experience as a result of that development. This information must be presented in a language that you understand, and TEP must answer any questions that you have about the information. TEP is providing this information to you so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to give your consent to the proposed oil and gas development that would TER TEP Rocky Mountain LLC 1058 County Road 215 Parachute, CO 81635 Page 3 of 5 be located within 2,000 feet of your home. To ensure that you fully understand the implications of providing your consent, at a minimum, TEP is providing you with the following information: 1. Description of the physical siting of the proposed location, including legal description, and a map showing the proximity to your home; 2. How this proposed location was selected using an Alternative Location Analysis process; 3. A description of the mineral acreage to be developed from this proposed location, and the number and orientation of wells, types of equipment, and other on- and off-location infrastructure related to anticipated operations; 4. A description, proposed timeline, and expected duration of different operations that are planned, including construction, drilling, completions, flowback, interim reclamation, production, and final reclamation; 5. A description of the different immediate impacts that you may experience during each stage of operations, which may include noise, vibration, light, odor, dust, traffic, and visual impacts, along with TEP’s planned mitigation (“Best Management Practices”) designed to reduce the impacts you may experience during each stage of the operation; 6. A description of potential adverse or beneficial impacts that you may experience as a result of planned operations at this location, including but not limited to scientific information discussing potential health impacts that are likely attributable to living in close proximity to oil and gas development; 7. A point of contact for you to obtain additional information from TEP, and how you can access additional information from the COGCC and your local government.2 Because your home is within 2,000 feet of the proposed oil and gas development, you qualify as an “affected person” under COGCC’s rules. That means you have a legal right to: 1. Participate in all COGCC proceedings to decide whether or not to grant TEP its OGDP permit to conduct oil and gas operations near your home. 2. You have the ability to submit written public comments to the COGCC’s Staff while the application is pending. 3. You have the right to request the COGCC to conduct a local public hearing at a location near where you live. 2 In addition to this information, TEP will also provide you with additional information required by COGCC at later stages of the application process, should TEP choose to move forward with the OGDP application process after learning whether you choose to provide your informed consent.
