Corporate History

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 3, 1997 under the name "Hadrosaurus Resources, Inc." On January 20, 1998, we filed an amendment to the articles of incorporation changing our name to "Hadro Resources, Inc." On February 12, 2003, subsequent to the acquisition of Petrogen, Inc. ("Petrogen"), we filed an amendment to the articles of incorporation changing our name to "Petrogen Corp."

On October 11, 2002, effective February 12, 2003, Hadro Resources, Inc. (now known as Petrogen Corp.), Petrogen, and the shareholders of Petrogen (the "Petrogen Shareholders") entered into a share exchange agreement (the "Share Exchange Agreement"). Pursuant to the terms of the Share Exchange Agreement, we acquired from the Petrogen Shareholders one hundred percent (100%) of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Petrogen and issued 7,000,000 shares of our restricted common stock to the Petrogen Shareholders in proportion to their respective holdings in Petrogen.

Effective September 12, 2006, we completed a merger with our subsidiary, Pluris Energy Group Inc., which we incorporated solely to effect the name change. As a result, we changed our name from "Petrogen Corp." to "Pluris Energy Group Inc." We changed the name of our company to better reflect the direction and business of our company. The name change became effective with NASDAQ Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board at the opening of market and trading on September 12, 2006 under the new symbol "PEYG".

On September 12, 2006, we effected a five (5) for one (1) reverse stock split of our authorized, issued and outstanding common stock. As a result, our authorized capital was decreased from 100,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001 to 20,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001. Our issued and outstanding share capital decreased from 68,249,605 shares of common stock to 13,649,921 shares of common stock.

On or about September 18, 2006, our board of directors unanimously approved an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation (the "Amendment"), pursuant to which our authorized share capital would be increased from 20,000,000 shares of common stock to 250,000,000 shares of common stock and to create 100,000,000 preferred shares. On or about September 29, 2006, our shareholders holding a majority of the total issued and outstanding shares of our common stock gave approval to the Amendment pursuant to a written consent. The increase in our authorized capital and the creation of the preferred shares was filed with the Nevada Secretary of State on November 21, 2006.

The purpose of increasing our authorized capital to 250,000,000 shares of common stock is to optimize the long term future growth potential of our organization on a share structure basis without requiring additional shareholder approvals to enable for the long term expansion of our business mandate. Specifically this will provide for other equity financing requirements we may have for the long term as well as for the development, expansion and additional acquisition of international oil and gas properties and bio-energy business opportunities that fit within our mandated business objectives.

Our executive office is located at 10777 Westheimer, Ste 1100, Houston, TX 77042-3462 and our telephone number is 281.383.9434.

Description of Business

We are an independent energy company specializing in the development of international and domestic business opportunities including, but not limited to, the acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas properties and the acquisition and development of bio-energy business opportunities in South America; primarily in the region of Argentina. We currently also have oil and gas development interests in the Texas Gulf Coast of the United States. We are, together with our wholly owned subsidiaries, Petrogen, Inc. ("Petrogen") and Pluris BVI, a junior domestic upstream and midstream oil and natural gas and bio-energy development and production company focused on acquiring, developing, producing and refining oil and natural gas reserves in South American high impact hydrocarbon rich areas and acquiring interests in South American bio-energy business ventures. Our core business strategy was refined in mid-2006 to acquire non-operated and operated working interests in oil and gas fields and to acquire interests in bio-energy business development opportunities throughout South America and particularly Argentina that display significant hydrocarbon reserves and development and expansion opportunities in both the traditional fossil fuels and new bio-energy fuels business sectors that can provide high yield returns on income opportunities in the energy industry for our shareholders.

Argentina

On August 18, 2006, our company entered into a share purchase agreement (the "SPA") with four individuals to purchase all the issued and outstanding shares of San Enrique Petrolera, S.A. ("SEPSA"), incorporated under the laws of Argentina. The SEPSA acquisition marks our first step in engaging its newly mandated business plans to acquire a working interest in producing oil and gas properties located in Argentina's hydrocarbon regions. SEPSA's interests include five hydrocarbon producing properties located in three of Argentina's five oil and gas producing basins. In order to secure the rights to purchase SEPSA, an Escrow Agreement (the "Escrow") was entered into among our company, SEPSA and Deutsch Bank Trust Company Americas, New York ("DB"), whereby we issued a $3,225,000 convertible, non-retractable redeemable unsecured bond (the "Bond") in the name of Pluris Energy Group Inc., which has been placed into the Escrow at DB. Terms of the Escrow stipulate certain conversion provisions of the Bond predicated upon the performance of both SEPSA and our company. In the event that the Bond is transferred from our company to SEPSA, SEPSA will retain certain privileges of Bond conversion into common shares of our company at prices ranging from $3.25 per common share to $9.25 per common share. The Bond is due in five years time at an interest rate of LIBOR plus 5%, with a floor of 10.5% and a ceiling of 13%. Interest on the Bond can be paid in common share equity of our company at our company's discretion. This Bond will not be considered issued and outstanding for accounting purposes until such time as the Bond is transferred to SEPSA.

One of the five properties owned by SEPSA, known as Tierra Del Fuego ("TDF") is the subject of a Joint Venture agreement (the "JV") with four other JV participants, each of which possesses a Right of First Refusal (the "ROFR") to purchase SEPSA's interest in TDF under a "match or pass" status. In October of 2006, SEPSA provided the four JV participants to TDF, notification of our company having won the bid to purchase SEPSA, and under such notification, those JV participants were provided with 30 days to match our company's allocation on the TDF property, or pass on their ROFR, thereafter enabling us to complete our acquisition of SEPSA, inclusive of all or part of SEPSA's interests in the TDF property. Prior to the end of that 30 day notification period, two of the four JV participants commenced proceedings against SEPSA in the Argentine Commercial Courts seeking intermediary action upon their rights under the terms of the JV's ROFR. On March 22, 2007 we were advised by SEPSA that as an outcome to those proceedings, two injunctions were imposed by the Argentina National Commercial Court of Appeals on behalf of Apco Argentina Inc. ("Apco") and Antrim Energy Inc. ("Antrim") prohibiting the sale of SEPSA's shares to our company until such time as the ROFR issues between SEPSA, Apco and Antrim are resolved.

As a result of the Injunctions imposed by Apco and Antrim, based upon the confirmation by the National Commercial Court of Appeals of the injunctions, on April 23, 2007, we informed SEPSA's shareholders that they should abstain from selling or disposing in any manner to any third party any of SESPA's shares that SEPSA has undertaken to sell to our

company under the terms of the SPA and that SEPSA should abstain from disposing any of the assets it owned at the time the SPA was signed. In response, SEPSA informed our company of its unilateral repudiation of the SPA, stating that as an effect of the injunctions imposed by Apco and Antrim, certain terms of the SPA were triggered, rendering the SPA terminated. Terms of the SPA clearly stipulate that any dispute arising under the SPA must be mutually addressed between our company and SEPSA through the International Chamber of Commerce, Paris, France. Therefore, we commenced an arbitral action against SEPSA through The Secretariat of the Court, International Court of Arbitration, International Chamber of Commerce, Paris, France (the "ICC"), requesting the ICC to enforce SEPSA's obligations under the terms agreed upon in the SPA and to sell 100% of the shares of SEPSA and that their other obligations set forth under the SPA are in full force and effect and to award damages incurred by our company. Currently, our company has filed with the ICC an extended claim comprising damages for loss of revenues from June 30, 2006, loss of asset value increases due to publicly reported reserve increases and commodity price increases and loss of out of pocket expenses. We believe that the ROFR issues, the injunctions and the arbitral proceedings will be resolved, however, there are no clear indications at this time as to how long of a process the arbitral proceedings between SEPSA and our company will take, how long the dispute between SEPSA, Apco and Antrim will continue, nor do we know what the outcome of those proceedings amongst all the parties involved with SEPSA will be. We believe that the issues pertaining to and being sought for resolution through the arbitral proceedings between SEPSA and our company will be resolved, however, and that completion of the acquisition of SEPSA by our company will occur.

We have recently chosen to suspend the placement schedule related to our offering of a $65,000,000 convertible, non-retractable, redeemable, unsecured bond instrument (the "Bonds") until such time as the outcome of the ROFR issues, injunctions and arbitral proceedings are clear, pursuant to which we will consider recommencing the offering wherein the capital raised will be used to close the acquisition of SEPSA and finance the acquisition of additional international revenue producing oil and gas assets located in South America. To date, no proceeds have been accepted from this offering and therefore, we have no current payment burdens associated with the offering. When the legal issues surrounding SEPSA have been resolved or at a time when we are able to enter into a new business opportunity agreement that establish our rights to purchase a similar revenue producing asset base to that of SEPSA, we will consider re-establishing offering of the Bonds.

United States

On September 10, 2007, we received a demand notice (the "Demand") for the immediate payment of a Senior Secured Convertible Note (the "Note") in the amount of $75,000 plus accrued interest. The Note carried a guaranteed security agreement ("GSA") over the assets of one of our subsidiaries, Petrogen, Inc. ("Petrogen") as collateral to the GSA. Due to the financial circumstances of Petrogen at the time of receipt of the Demand; the Note could not be repaid. After Petrogen's default under the Note, the Note holder exercised its right to accept the collateral described in the GSA in full satisfaction of Petrogen's obligation to the Note Holder. The Note Holder sent to Petrogen a properly authenticated proposal to accept Petrogen's collateral in full satisfaction of the above described debt as required by the TEXAS BUSINESS & COMMERCE CODE, §9.620. On October 8, 2007 our company and Petrogen consented to the proposal, also required under the statute. The Note holder's subsequent acceptance of the collateral in full satisfaction of the obligation it secures: (a) discharges Petrogen's, obligation to the extent consented to by Petrogen.; (b) transfers to the secured party all of Petrogen's rights in the collateral; (c) discharges the security interest lien over Petrogen and (d) terminates any subordinate security interest or other subordinate liens over Petrogen by other third party creditors. The collateral is now the Note Holder's property. In this regard, Petrogen no longer owns any assets in the United States and as such, will be preparing Petrogen, Inc. for wind-up and dissolution.

We plan to develop our new mandate to acquire operated and non-operated oil and gas and bio-energy business development opportunities through the acquisition of interests in international high profile regions, and specifically within South American regions of Argentina to build a strategic base of proven hydrocarbon reserves and fossil fuel and bio-energy production opportunities that represent outstanding growth possibilities for our shareholders over the immediate, near and long term.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Our financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include adjustments relating to the recoverability and realization of assets and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue in operation.

As at September 30, 2007

As at September 30, 2007, our current assets were $425,025 and our current liabilities were $1,318,152, resulting in working capital deficit of $893,127. As at September 30, 2007, current assets were comprised of: (i) $23,052 in cash;

Stockholders' deficit increased from ($315,196) at December 31, 2006 to ($777,112) at September 30, 2007.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2007, net cash used in continuing operations was $1,244,195 compared to net cash used in continuing operations of $4,251,241 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2006.

We will require additional funds to implement our growth strategy in exploration operations. These funds may be raised through equity financing, debt financing, or other sources, which may result in further dilution in the equity ownership of our shares. There is still no assurance that we will be able to maintain operations at a level sufficient for an investor to obtain a return on his investment in our common stock. Further, we may continue to be unprofitable.

Going Concern

Due to our being an exploration stage company and not having generated revenues, in their report on our audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2006, our independent auditors included an explanatory paragraph regarding concerns about our ability to continue as a going concern.

We have historically incurred losses, and through September 30, 2007 have incurred losses of $20,206,153 from our inception. Because of these historical losses, we will require additional working capital to develop our business operations. We intend to raise additional working capital through private . . .

Pluris Energy Enters Into Letter of Intent
PR Newswire
Company to Acquire Substantial Producing Reserves, Golfo San Jorge Basin, Argentina
November 27, 2007: 12:00 PM EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pluris Energy Group Inc. is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Letter of Intent (the "LOI") with Clear S.R.L., of Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina ("Clear"), whereby the Company retains the exclusive right to purchase and develop up to 100% of Clear's 186 square kilometer Cerro Negro concession, Chubut Province, Golfo San Jorge Basin, Argentina ("Cerro Negro").

Cerro Negro currently produces approximately 250 barrels of oil per day and consists of multiple pay potential oil development opportunities ranging from 3,000 feet to 5,000 feet in depth, with most oil production coming from the lower member of the Bajo Barreal formation. The Block was first discovered in 1956 by YPF, with discovery wells being drilled and completed in the mid 1980's. Based upon initial review by the Company of the available technical data over the concession, management of the Company believes that estimated producing reserves (P1) on Cerro Negro are approximately 6.2 million barrels of oil equivalent (97% oil) and that P3 oil reserves, which include Proved, Probable and Possible reserve categories, are estimated by management to be approximately 25.8 million barrels of oil equivalent. The purchase of Cerro Negro will include extensive two and three dimensional seismic data sets, all gathering, oil treatment and storage facilities on the concession, as well as oil transport and existing sales contracts.

Upon successful completion of its acquisition of Cerro Negro, the Company intends on immediately pursuing development of the concession, which will consist of an initial drilling campaign to complete 60 identified proven un- developed (PUD) drilling locations, which have been delineated through the interpretation of two dimensional and 100 square kilometers of three dimensional seismic data. The seismic data sets further identify a potential for over 140 additional probable and possible future development drilling locations as the PUD drilling locations are systematically exploited and increasingly detailed geologic interpretational models are developed over the Cerro Negro concession. Deeper exploratory exploitation targets at approximately 7,200 feet are available for future interpretation also.

Completion of the acquisition is subject to the Company performing its in- depth due diligence review of Cerro Negro and negotiating and executing a mutually acceptable purchase and sale agreement between the Company and Clear.

Pluris Energy Chairman & CEO, Sacha H. Spindler stated, "We are delighted about positioning Pluris with another high quality opportunity in Argentina. Identifying and developing concessions that possess a base of existing production and proven reserves of this magnitude positions our shareholders to potentially partake in a development and expansion platform that is rarely available. This highly attractive concession positions Pluris with the unique opportunity to step into a ready-to-drill, development play that possesses significant drilling and production potential for years to come. The development platform at Cerro Negro has already been established through

several discovery and development wells, current production, highly detailed technical data and existing infrastructure."

Located in the Southeastern region of Argentina, approximately 1,800 kilometers south of Buenos Aires, the Golfo San Jorge Basin is one of five producing hydrocarbon basins in the country. Characteristically, it is considered to be a resource play as evidenced by a 90 plus percent drilling success rate. Through the advent of three dimensional seismic technologies, the full potential of the basin has been unveiled over the past fifteen years, resulting in the identification of an abundance of small and large hydrocarbon bearing structures.

Pluris Energy President and C.O.O., Sam Sen added, "We are pleased to have the opportunity to continue to deliver on our South American business mandate. In Argentina, this has been to a large degree achieved through the Company's unwavering commitment to its efforts in capturing value-adding opportunities there, which has been manifested to a large degree through the building of a top caliber Argentine technical and business development team. In the period of 18 months, a short time frame to negotiate new country entry positions for a company our size, Pluris has been successful in being the winning bidder to purchase 100% of the shares of an Argentine company and has now gained access to enter into exclusive negotiations to complete the purchase of Cerro Negro." Mr. Sen concluded, "We look forward to providing our shareholders with continuing future announcements about this and other business opportunities we are currently developing in the region."
