"believe'', "intend", "expect", "plan", "estimate", "budget'', "outlook'',
"may", "could", "should", "would" or other similar wording. Forward-looking
information includes, but is not limited to, reference to business strategy
and goals, future capital and other expenditures, reserves and resources

growth thereof, project development schedules and results, results of
exploration activities and dates by which certain areas may be developed or
may come on-stream, royalties payable, financing and capital activities,
contingent liabilities, and environmental matters. By its very nature, such
forward-looking information requires Addax Petroleum to make assumptions that
may not materialize or that may not be accurate. This forward-looking
information is subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other
factors, which may cause actual results, levels of activity and achievements
to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such information. Such
