2018 Outlook

Sunshine intends to continue to focus on cost controls and on carefully improving production at West Ells. The Company intends to ramp up production when the heavy oil pricing environment improves from currently high differentials from WTI oil prices. In addition, with the Shareholder’s approval for changes to the joint venture agreement and supporting agreements for the Muskwa and Godin area, the Company sees potential significant benefits resulting from re-activation of the Muskwa and Godin Area activities.
