Political and Country Related Risk
ShaMaran participates in oil and gas projects located in Kurdistan in northern Iraq. Oil and gas exploration, development and pro¬duction activities in emerging markets are subject to signifi cant political and economic uncertainties which may adversely affect the Company's operations. Uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risk of war, terrorism, expropriation, nationalization, renegotiation or nullifi cation of existing or future licenses and PSCs, the imposition of international sanctions, a change in crude oil or natural gas pricing policies, a change in taxation policies, ability to export, and the imposition of currency controls. These uncertainties, all of which are beyond ShaMaran's control, could have a material adverse effect on ShaMaran's business, pros¬pects and results of operations. In addition, if legal disputes arise related to oil and gas PSCs acquired by the Company, ShaMaran could be subject to the jurisdiction of courts other than those of Canada. ShaMaran's recourse may be very limited in the event of a breach by a government or government authority of an agreement governing a PSC in which ShaMaran acquires an interest. ShaMaran may require licenses or permits from various governmental authorities to carry out future exploration, development and production activities. There can be no assurance that ShaMaran will be able to obtain all necessary licenses and permits when required.
International Boundary Disputes
There are ongoing political disputes between the KRG and the Republic of Iraq as to both the regional boundaries between them and resulting oil rights. Political Instability ShaMaran is highly exposed to the political risk in Kurdistan which regards itself as a semi-autonomous region of northern Iraq. There are a number of outstanding political issues and differences between the various political factions in Iraq. These differences could adversely impact ShaMaran's interests in Kurdistan.
