In addition, management and the board of the Company extend their thanks to Jim Gray for his years of service on the board.  Mr. Gray stepped down from the Board of Directors of Cequence at the annual and special meeting.  Mr. Gray was the co-founder of Canadian Hunter Exploration in the 1970's and was instrumental in the recognition and discovery of the giant Deep Basin gas field at Elmworth.  He acted as a mentor to a number of the Company's geological staff in the 1980's and served on the Board of Temple Exploration and Temple Energy with much of the Company's current management team.  In addition, he served on the boards of Canadian National Railway, Brookfield, Phoenix Technology and numerous not-for-profit societies and he remains an iconic figure in the Calgary philanthropic community.

Paul Wanklyn said "I would like to thank Jim for his continued friendship, wisdom, energy, and positive outlook in a rapidly changing business environment. Jim has assumed the role of Director Emeritus at Cequence, thereby ensuring that we can continue to lean on him for guidance."
