("Southern" or the "Company") and should be read in conjunction with the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 (the "Financial Statements"), which have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 - Interim Financial Reporting of the International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board.

Throughout this MD&A, "crude oil" or "oil" refers to light and medium crude oil product types as defined by National Instrument 51-101 Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities ("NI 51-101"). References to "NGLs" throughout this MD&A comprise pentane, butane, propane, and ethane, being all NGLs as defined by NI 51-101.

About Southern

Southern is a natural gas and light oil producer with assets in Mississippi and Alabama characterized by a stable, low-decline production base, a significant low-risk drilling inventory and strategic access to the best commodity pricing in North America. Southern has a primary focus on acquiring and developing conventional natural gas and light oil resources in the southeast Gulf States of Mississippi, Louisiana, and East Texas (the "Southeast Gulf States"). Southern's mission is to build a socially responsible and environmentally conscious light oil and natural gas company in the Southeast Gulf States. In these areas, Southern has access to major pipelines, significant Company-owned infrastructure, year-round access to drill, and the ability to shift focus between natural gas or crude oil development as commodity prices fluctuate; all factors that contribute to mitigating corporate risk. Southern's goal is to continually grow shareholder value through strategic, accretive acquisitions and organic growth opportunities.

The Company's management team has a long and successful history of working together as a team and have created significant shareholder value through accretive acquisitions, optimizations of existing oil and natural gas fields and the utilization of re-development strategies utilizing horizontal drilling and multistaged fracture completion techniques. Southern's head office is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Corporate Update

On August 10, 2021, Southern was admitted to the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange plc ("AIM") and the Company's common shares ("Common Shares") began trading on August 10, 2021, under the symbol "SOUC". The dual listing has already benefited Southern to pursue its strategic objective of growth

through acquisitions and organic opportunities by taking advantage of AIM's liquidity and access to a broader range of global investors. On November 24, 2021, Southern closed an equity financing for aggregate gross proceeds of $12.7 million through the issuance of a total of 254.3 million Common Shares (the "Offering"), of which $6.7 million was raised pursuant to a private placement of 135.1 million Common Shares to UK investors at a price of 2.94 pence per Common Share and the remaining $6.0 million was raised pursuant to a short form prospectus offering of 119.2 million Common Shares at a price of $0.05 per Common Share.

Southern intends to use the proceeds from the Offering to drill up to three horizontal Selma Chalk wells in the Gwinville gas field and for working capital and general corporate purposes. This is expected to provide the business with additional near-term cash flow generation.

Southern sells the majority of its oil and natural gas at the wellhead. Southern receives Louisiana Light Sweet ("LLS") pricing (less adjustments for proximity and quality) for its oil, and Henry Hub ("HH") pricing (less minor proximity adjustments) for its natural gas.

In Q3 2021 Southern realized an oil price of $85.50/bbl which was an increase of 70% from the same period in 2020. For the first nine months of 2021, Southern's realized oil price increased 54% compared to the same period in 2020. Oil prices continue to benefit from an improving global economy that was encouraged by the continued roll-out of COVID-19 vaccinations and OPEC+ largely maintaining production restrictions. The LLS premium to West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") has remained quite tight in 2021. The LLS premium to WTI averaged US$1.01/bbl in Q3 2021, compared to US$1.50/bbl in Q3 2020.

Southern realized a price of $5.10/Mcf in Q3 2021, a 105% increase from Q3 2020. During the first nine months of 2021, Southern realized a price of $4.00/Mcf, a 73% increase from the same period in 2020. Continued strong North American demand in Q3 2021, combined with low inventory levels globally, leading to strong demand for US liquefied natural gas exports, helped to increase HH gas prices 45% from Q2 2021. Southern believes the robust LNG economics combined with fewer wells being drilled as
