This discussion should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the year ended March 31, 2022, together with the notes thereto, as well as the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements for three and six month period ended September 30, 2022 (the "Financial Statements"). These documents have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. This MD&A contains forward-looking information that is subject to risk factors including those set out under "Forward Looking Information" below and elsewhere in this MD&A, including under "Risks and Uncertainties". Further information about the Company and its operations can be obtained from the offices of the Company or at www.ecooilandgas.com. All amounts are reported in US dollars, unless otherwise noted. This MD&A has been prepared as at November 28, 2022. Forward Looking Information Statements contained in this MD&A that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the future price of petroleum and/or natural gas; capital expenditures; costs, timing and future plans concerning the development of petroleum and/or natural gas properties; permitting time lines; currency fluctuations; requirements for additional capital; government regulation of petroleum and natural gas matters; environmental risks; unanticipated reclamation expenses; title disputes or claims; and limitations on insurance coverage. In certain cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved".

The Company operates in the Republic of Guyana ("Guyana"), the Republic of South Africa ("South Africa") and the Republic of Namibia ("Namibia"). The common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") trade on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") under the symbol "EOG", and on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange (the "AIM") under the symbol "ECO". Overview of Operations Oil and Gas exploration Eco (Atlantic) Guyana Inc. ("Eco Guyana"), the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, currently holds a 15% interest in the Orinduik Block offshore Guyana governed by a petroleum agreement between the Company, the Government of Guyana, Tullow Guyana B.V. and TOQAP Guyana B.V. (the "Orinduik License"). Effective June 28, 2021 and following a second investment in January 2022, the Company became the indirect owner of an interest in the Canje Block offshore Guyana (the "Canje Block") through the acquisition of a 7.35% interest (and up to 11.4% on a fully diluted basis) in JHI Associates Inc. ("JHI"), a private company incorporated in Ontario and headquartered in Toronto, Canada. The Canje Block is operated by ExxonMobil and is held by Working Interest ("WI") partners Esso Exploration & Production Guyana Limited (35%), TotalEnergies E&P Guyana B.V. (35%), JHI Associates (BVI) Inc. (17.5%) and Mid-Atlantic Oil & Gas Inc. (12.5%) (together the "JV Partners"). The Company holds, through Azinam Limited and Azinam South Africa Limited, two wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company, interests in two offshore petroleum licenses in South Africa. The interests held are a 50% Operated Interest in Exploration Right Block 2B, (the "Block 2B"), and a 20% Working Interest in Exploration Right Block 3B/4B, (the "Block 3B/4B"). The Company also holds an 85% Operated Interest in four licenses in the Walvis Basin, Offshore Namibia ("Namibia Licenses"): (i) Petroleum Exploration License ("PEL") #097 (the "Cooper License") and (ii) PEL #099 (the "Guy License") (iii) PEL #098 (the "Sharon License") and (iv) PEL #100 (the "Tamar License"). The terms of the Namibia Licenses are governed by Petroleum Agreements (each, a "Namibia Petroleum Agreement" and collectively, the "Eco Namibia Petroleum Agreements") between the Company, its Namibia Licenses partners, and Namibia's Ministry of Mines and Energy (the "Ministry"). The Company is in the development stage and has not yet commenced principal producing operations other than acquiring and analysing certain pertinent geological data in Guyana and Namibia and drilling two exploration wells in Guyana and one in South Africa. The Company is currently engaged in the exploration and development of its properties, in addition to evaluating the Jethro and Joe oil discoveries, to determine the appropriate appraisal approach. 3 MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS Renewable Energy development During 2021, the Company's subsidiary, Eco (BVI) Oil and Gas Ltd, was renamed Solear Ltd., to source, acquire and develop an exclusive pipeline of potential high yield solar energy projects, with a geographic focus in southern Europe. An independent senior team was engaged in the review and analysis of several development projects with potentially promising returns to seek to generate shareholder value. In February 2022, the Board of directors approved the sale of the Kozani project and resolved to discontinue the renewable energy operations. The Company is awaiting receipt of the balance of consideration due from the acquiror in respect of this disposal, having received a non-refundable amount of €120,000 to date, and accordingly retains ownership of the project and maintains the assets. Due to the failure on the part of the acquiror to settle the consideration on the due dates, the Company was permitted to dispose of the project to alternative buyers and on November 25, 2022, the Company completed the sale for total proceeds of €2.3 million (US$2.4 million). Significant Developments On June 27, 2022, the Company announced the entering into of a farm out agreement for the acquisition of an additional 6.25% Participating Interest in the Block 3B/4B (the "PI"). On July 6, 2022 the Company announced receipt of TSXV approval of the acquisition which resulted in the issuance of 2,702,702 Common Shares at a deemed price of CAD$0.48 per Common Share and a cash amount of $1 million to the vendor of the PI (the "Vendor"). Upon fulfillment of future conditions the Vendor is entitled to receive: (i) a cash amount of $500,000 (ii) Common Shares, at a deemed price of CAD$0.48 per Common Share, having an aggregate value of $500,000 (or alternatively in lieu of such Common Shares, at the Company's sole discretion, pay an additional amount of US$500,000 to the Vendor such that the cash consideration is $1 million); (iii) Common Shares a deemed price of CAD$0.48 per Common Share having an aggregate value of $3 million, which Common Shares will be subject to contractual lock up restrictions; (iv) Common Shares at a deemed price of CAD$0.48 per Common Share, having an aggregate value of $2 million; and (v) Common Shares equal to $2 million divided by the greater of (i) the value of the 30 day VWAP per Common Share prior to the date of the press release announcing the issue of such Common Shares; and (ii) the lowest issuance price then allowed by the rules of the TSXV and AIM (to the extent then listed on such markets, otherwise the average (if listed on more than one market) on such markets as the Common Shares are then listed) subject to a maximum of 10,000,000 Common Shares. On June 27, 2022, the Company announced the successful completion of an equity financing on a private placement basis for gross proceeds of $12.3 million (the "Financing"). The Financing resulted in the issuance of 33,406,531 Common Shares, at a deemed price of CAD$0.48 per Common Share, and an equal amount of warrants with each such warrant exercisable into one additional Common Share upon payment of CAD$.5215. TSXV approval for the Financing was announced by the Company on July 6, 2022. 4
