Notes Regarding Oil and Gas Disclosure  
As used in this press release, "boe" means barrel of oil equivalent
on the basis of 6 mcf of natural gas to 1 bbl of oil. Boes may be misleading,
particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is
based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the
burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.  
Additionally, this press release uses certain abbreviations as follows: 
Oil and Natural Gas Liquids             Natural Gas                          
boepd           barrels of oil          MMscf           Millions of standard 
equivalent per day                      cubic feet
