Please be advised that in addition to historical information, certain comments made during this conference call, particularly those anticipating future financial performance, business prospects and overall operating strategies, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements may be identified by words such as anticipate, believe, estimate, expect, intend, predict and hope or similar expressions. Such statements, which include estimated or forward-looking production and financial information or results, are based on management’s current expectations and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Listeners are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by Gran Tierra Energy and its reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those risks set forth in Gran Tierra Energy's quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 9, 2011, and in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, February 24, 2011. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or if the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, Gran Tierra Energy’s actual results may vary materially from those expected or projected.

Gran Tierra Energy assumes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements other than as may be required by applicable law or regulation.
