Forward-Looking Statements: All statements, other than statements of
historical fact, set forth in this news release, including without
limitation, assumptions and statements regarding the volumes and
estimated value of the Company's proved and probable reserves, future
production rates, exploration and development results, financial
results, and future plans, operations and objectives of the Company
are forward-looking statements that involve substantial known and
unknown risks and uncertainties. Some of these risks and
uncertainties are beyond management's control, including but not
limited to, the impact of general economic conditions, industry
conditions, fluctuation of commodity prices, fluctuation of foreign
exchange rates, environmental risks, industry competition,
availability of qualified personnel and management, availability of
materials, equipment and third party services, stock market
volatility, timely and cost effective access to sufficient capital
from internal and external sources. The reader is cautioned that
assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although
considered reasonable by the Company at the time of preparation, may
prove to be incorrect. There can be no assurance that such statements
will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could
differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.
These assumptions and statements necessarily involve known and
unknown risks and uncertainties inherent in the oil and gas industry
such as geological, technical, drilling and processing problems and
other risks and uncertainties, as well as the business risks
discussed in Management's Discussion and Analysis of the Company
under the heading "Business Risks". The Company does not undertake
any obligation, except as required by applicable securities
legislation, to update publicly or to revise any of the included
forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information,
future events or otherwise.
Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated using the conversion
factor of 6 mcf (thousand cubic feet) of natural gas being equivalent
to one barrel of oil. Boes may be misleading, particularly if used in
isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf:1 bbl (barrel) is based on
an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the
burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the
wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of
crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from
the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis
may be misleading as an indication of value.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as
that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts
