Estimated Proved Reserves
Reserve engineering is a complex and subjective process of estimating underground accumulations of oil and natural gas that cannot be measured in an exact way and the accuracy of any reserve estimate is a function of the quality of available data and of engineering and geological interpretation and judgment. As a result, estimates prepared by one engineer may vary from those prepared by another. The estimate of reserves contained in this press release was internally prepared based on information available through the acquisition process. Estimates of proved reserves for our oil and gas properties for year end 2012 will be prepared by independent reserve engineers using the information available at that time. Upon completion of such a review, our independent engineers’ estimate of these proved reserves as of December 31, 2012 could be materially different from our management’s estimates of such reserves as described above.
