Mr. McDougall also served as Chief Financial Officer of OSUM Oil Sands Corp. from 2007 to 2009. OSUM is a private energy company established in Alberta which focuses on the bitumen potential of the Canadian oil sands. It is backed by some of the largest and most sophisticated energy investors in the world including, but not limited to, Warburg Pincus, Blackstone Capital Partners, KERN Partners, Korea Investment Corp., Government of Singapore Investment Corp. and Goldman Sachs.

Prior to joining OSUM, Mr. McDougall worked in various roles at Centurion Energy International Inc. ("CUX"), from 2000 to 2006, ending as VP Finance. Mr. McDougall was an integral part of the executive team that raised over $300 million in debt and equity financings and grew CUX from 1,000 boepd to 38,000 boepd until its sale to Abu-Dhabi listed Dana Das PJSC for $1.15 billion. Prior to joining CUX, Mr. McDougall worked with Deloitte and Touche as Monitor for PetroKazakhstan. Mr. McDougall received his Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Calgary and obtained his designation as a Chartered Accountant while working with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Mr. Jamie Carlson has over 20 years of broad based oil and gas development and management expertise. Mr. Carlson's expertise includes production engineering and operations, business development, project management, asset evaluation and modeling, seismic acquisition, drilling program management, and the development of exploitation strategies for clastic and carbonate light oil, heavy oil, and bitumen plays. Mr. Carlson has played a key role in advancing several assets from inception to later stage development with resulting values of several million to over one billion dollars.

Prior to Redhill, Mr. Carlson was the President and CEO at Carlson Resource Corp., an international energy consulting company providing engineering and business development evaluations in Columbia, Mexico, Egypt and Canada. From 2007 to 2013, Mr. Carlson was the Operations Manager for OSUM Oil Sands Corp. and contributed to the success of building OSUM from a start up to a $1.5 billion dollar company. From 2006 to 2007, Jamie was an Area Coordinator for Baytex Energy where he evaluated US and Canadian acquisitions. From 2003 to 2006, he was a Senior Engineer for Dominion Exploration Canada. Prior to 2003, he held various team leading roles at Enerplus Resources, Petrovera Resources and PanCanadian Energy.

Mr. Carlson is a Professional Engineer and a member of the Association of Professional Engineers & Geoscientists of Alberta, the Society of Petroleum Engineers, the Canadian Heavy Oil Association, the Canadian Society for Unconventional Resources, and Cogen Canada.

Paul DiPasquale has also agreed to step down as a director. Redhill thanks Mr. DiPasquale for his contributions to date.
