PERSONAL GUARANTY AGREEMENT
WHEREAS, Fieldpoint Petroleum Corporation, a Colorado corporation (“ Borrower ”) has entered into that certain Loan and Security Agreement dated October 18, 2006, as amended, between Borrower and Citibank, N.A., formerly known as Citibank Texas, N.A. (the “ Lender ”) (such Loan Agreement, as it may hereafter be amended or otherwise modified from time to time, being hereinafter referred to as the “ Loan Agreement ”, and capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Loan Agreement);
WHEREAS, the execution of this Personal Guaranty Agreement is a condition to the Lender’s obligations under the Loan Agreement;
NOW, THEREFORE, for valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, Ray D. Reaves, Jr., an individual (the “ Guarantor ”), hereby irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees to the Lender the full and prompt payment and performance of the Guaranteed Indebtedness (hereinafter defined), this Personal Guaranty Agreement being upon the following terms:
The term “ Guaranteed Indebtedness ”, as used herein means all of the “Indebtedness” (as defined in the Loan Agreement) and shall include any and all post-petition interest and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) whether or not allowed under any bankruptcy, insolvency, or other similar law; provided that the Guaranteed Indebtedness shall be limited, with respect to the Guarantor, to an aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not render the Guarantor’s obligations hereunder subject to avoidance under Section 544 or 548 of the United States Bankruptcy Code or under any applicable state law relating to fraudulent transfers or conveyances.
This instrument shall be an absolute, continuing, irrevocable and unconditional guaranty of payment and performance, and not a guaranty of collection, and the Guarantor shall remain liable on its obligations hereunder until the payment and performance in full of the Guaranteed Indebtedness. No set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, reduction, or diminution of any obligation, or any defense of any kind or nature which Borrower may have against the Lender or any other party, or which the Guarantor may have against Borrower, the Lender or any other party, shall be available to, or shall be asserted by, the Guarantor against the Lender or any subsequent holder of the Guaranteed Indebtedness or any part thereof or against payment of the Guaranteed Indebtedness or any part thereof.
If the Guarantor becomes liable for any indebtedness owing by Borrower to the Lender by endorsement or otherwise, other than under this Personal Guaranty Agreement, such liability shall not be in any manner impaired or affected hereby, and the rights of the Lender hereunder shall be cumulative of any and all other rights that the Lender may ever have against the Guarantor. The exercise by the Lender of any right or remedy hereunder or under any other instrument, or at law or in equity, shall not preclude the concurrent or subsequent exercise of any other right or remedy.
In the event of default by Borrower in payment or performance of the Guaranteed Indebtedness, or any part thereof, when such Guaranteed Indebtedness becomes due, whether by its terms, by acceleration, or otherwise, the Guarantor shall promptly pay the amount due thereon to the Lender, without notice or demand, in lawful currency of the United States of America, and it shall not be necessary for the Lender, in order to enforce such payment by the Guarantor, first to institute suit or exhaust its remedies against Borrower or others liable on such Guaranteed Indebtedness, or to enforce any rights against any collateral which shall ever have been given to secure such Guaranteed Indebtedness. In the event such payment is made by the Guarantor, then the Guarantor shall be subrogated to the rights then held by the Lender with respect to the Guaranteed Indebtedness to the extent to which the Guaranteed Indebtedness was discharged by the Guarantor and, in addition, upon payment by the Guarantor of any sums to the Lender hereunder, all rights of the Guarantor against Borrower, any other

guarantor or any Collateral arising as a result therefrom by way of right of subrogation, reimbursement, or otherwise shall in all respects be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the prior indefeasible payment in full of the Guaranteed Indebtedness.
If acceleration of the time for payment of any amount payable by Borrower under the Guaranteed Indebtedness is stayed upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, or reorganization of Borrower, all such amounts otherwise subject to acceleration under the terms of the Guaranteed Indebtedness shall nonetheless be payable by the Guarantor hereunder forthwith on demand by the Lender.
The Guarantor hereby agrees that its obligations under this Personal Guaranty Agreement shall not be released, discharged, diminished, impaired, reduced, or affected for any reason or by the occurrence of any event, including, without limitation, one or more of the following events, whether or not with notice to or the consent of the Guarantor: (a) the taking or accepting of collateral as security for any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness or the release, surrender, exchange, or subordination of any collateral now or hereafter securing any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (b) any partial release of the liability of the Guarantor hereunder, or the full or partial release of any other guarantor from liability for any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (c) any disability of Borrower, or the dissolution, insolvency, or bankruptcy of Borrower, the Guarantor, or any other guarantor, or any other party at any time liable for the payment of any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (d) any renewal, extension, modification, waiver, amendment, or rearrangement of any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness or any instrument, document, or agreement evidencing, securing, or otherwise relating to any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (e) any adjustment, indulgence, forbearance, waiver, or compromise that may be granted or given by the Lender to Borrower, the Guarantor, or any other guarantor, or any other party ever liable for any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (f) any neglect, delay, omission, failure, or refusal of the Lender to take or prosecute any action for the collection of any of the Guaranteed Indebtedness or to foreclose or take or prosecute any action in connection with any instrument, document, or agreement evidencing, securing, or otherwise relating to any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (g) the unenforceability or invalidity of any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness or of any instrument, document, or agreement evidencing, securing, or otherwise relating to any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (h) any payment by Borrower or any other party to the Lender is held to constitute a preference under applicable bankruptcy or insolvency law or if for any other reason the Lender is required to refund any payment or pay the amount thereof to someone else; (i) the settlement or compromise of any of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (j) the non-perfection of any security interest or lien securing any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (k) any impairment of any collateral securing any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness; (l) the failure of the Lender to sell any collateral securing any or all of the Guaranteed Indebtedness in a commercially reasonable manner or as otherwise required by law; (m) any change in the corporate existence, structure, or ownership of Borrower; or (n) any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or discharge of, Borrower or the Guarantor (other than payment of the Guaranteed Indebtedness).
The Guarantor represents and warrants to the Lender as follows:
All representations and warranties in the Loan Agreement relating to it are true and correct as of the date hereof and on each date the representations and warranties hereunder are restated pursuant to any of the Loan Documents with the same force and effect as if such representations and warranties had been made on and as of such date except to the extent that such representations and warranties relate specifically to another date.
It has, independently and without reliance upon the Lender and based upon such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own analysis and decision to enter into the Loan Documents to which it is a party.

It has adequate means to obtain from Borrower on a continuing basis information concerning the financial condition and assets of Borrower and it is not relying upon the Lender to provide (and the Lender shall not have any duty to provide) any such information to it either now or in the future.
The value of the consideration received and to be received by the Guarantor as a result of Borrower’s and the Lender’s entering into the Loan Agreement and the Guarantor executing and delivering this Personal Guaranty Agreement is reasonably worth at least as much as the l
