limitation, assumptions and risks associated with oil and gas exploration,
development, exploitation, production, marketing and transportation, loss of

imprecision of reserve estimates, environmental risks, competition, incorrect

benefits of acquisitions and ability to access sufficient capital from
internal and external sources.
