National Petroleum Agency
Sao Tome and Principe
Ref: NPA/58690/2010

Attn: Director / C.E.O

My name is engr. Martins Ovido Mendez, and I work with the Sao Tome and
Principe National petroleum agency to be precise, I oversee Europe and
African operations for the agency. My position in the agency entitles
exploration and allocation licenses and I do recommend oil allocation
bidders and actualize oil lifting to the final buyers and also to my
candidates based on my interest.

Last 2 years, I facilitated and actualized the license of an American, the
license was for 5 year at 24 million bbls/12 months and due to reasons
unknown to me, I have not heard from this man till date. The license is
still valid till date (as I always ensure that I keep to my side of the
bargain), i have decided to start using the license from now.

I am in need of a partner whom I can trust; i will package you as the
allocation license beneficiary with my position in the petroleum agency, I
cannot handle this position. I assume that you might have all the
qualities i need for such partnership business and this is the only reason
why i have contacted you. We shall be able to lift a maximum of 2million
barrels of Brent crudeâalso- per month while this will fetch us an
average of us $12million per month since i have ready buyers who would
scramble for any number of barrels that will be lifted for the month.

This is what i propose:-viz a viz

1. you have to provide me with your company name, in which shall be used
to replace the initial license operator.

2. I will ensure that your company name is recognized as the license
operator and that we have a lay candate for at least a  minimum  of 1
million barrels per month, a maximum of 2 million barrels per month
starting from the date of company incorporation.

3. I will ensure that all lifting procedures are in place and buyers
readily available.

4. You stand in as the license operator for all lifting and sales
transactions; we shall open an account for the receipt of the oil sale
proceeds in which both of us shall be signatories to the account.

5. We shall split the oil sale proceeds in the ratio of 50/50 equity share
while equity will be at the last day of every month.

I believe this offer I am making to you is based on utmost good faith. I
could be jeopardizing my position in the National Petroleum Agency if word
of this goes out; therefore without mincing words, i rely on you for
utmost confidentiality on every bit of detail information relating to this

Currently i am in Southern African countries for the national petroleum
agency contract project inspections. You can always contact me at:
You can also fax any details to +27-86-527-0662

Upon your positive response, i will be willing to forward to you proof of
my proposition.

I look forward to build a prospective business relationship with you.

Warm regards,

Engr: Martins ovido Mendez
(National Petroleum Agency of Sao Tome ).
