thousand cubic feet of natural gas for each barrel of oil equivalent ("boe")
based on the relative heating content of natural gas to crude oil. Readers are
cautioned that the relative values of natural gas and crude oil may differ and
that the barrel of oil equivalent measure may not be representative of the
relative values of natural gas and crude oil. In this press release: boe/d
means boe per day; mcf/d means thousand cubic feet per day; mboe means
thousand boe; mmcf means million cubic feet; bbl means barrel and mmbtu means

    Investors are further cautioned that the preparation of financial
statements in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting
principles ("GAAP") requires management to make certain judgments and
estimates that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues
and expenses. Estimating reserves is also critical to several accounting
estimates and requires judgments and decisions based upon available
geological, geophysical, engineering and economic data. These estimates may
change, having either a negative or positive effect on net earnings as further
information becomes available, and as the economic environment changes.
