Summary of Changes in Proved Reserves:
Balance at December 31, 2011 (Bcfe)         5,365
Extensions, discoveries and other additions         1,656
Revisions*         (754)
Purchases         -
Sales         (1)
Production         (261)
Balance at December 31, 2012         6,004

* A substantial portion of the revision is due to proved reserves being re-classified as non-proved reserves, primarily as a result of lower gas prices. Year-end 2012 reserves are based on a $2.79 per Mcfe price, which is $1.33 lower than the price used to estimate the 2011 reserves. Both prices were determined in accordance with the SEC requirement to use the 12-month un-weighted arithmetic average of the first-day-of-the-month price for the preceding twelve months without giving effect to derivative transactions.

DEFINITIONS Reserve Replacement Calculations -- Reserve replacement ratio is the sum of the net increase of proved reserves before production, divided by production.

Drill Bit Finding Cost -- Drill bit finding cost is the total cost incurred related to natural gas and oil activities, calculated in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification 932 (ASC 932), less property acquisition costs for proved developed and unproved properties, divided by extensions, discoveries and other additions.

Cautionary StatementsThe SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved, probable and possible reserves that a company anticipates as of a given date to be economically and legally producible and deliverable by application of development projects to known accumulations. We use certain terms in this press release, such as EUR (estimated ultimate recovery) and total resource potential, that the SEC's rules strictly prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC. These measures are by their nature more speculative than estimates of reserves prepared in accordance with SEC definitions and guidelines and accordingly are less certain. We also note that the SEC strictly prohibits us from aggregating proved, probable and possible reserves in filings with the SEC due to the different levels of certainty associated with each reserve category.

Disclosures in this press release contain forward-looking statements. Statements that do not relate strictly to historical or current facts are forward-looking. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this press release specifically include the expectations of resource potential, EUR and projected well drilling plans, including the projected capital budget and the use of reduced cluster spacing. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from projected results. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. The company has based these forward-looking statements on current expectations and assumptions about future events. While the company considers these expectations and assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the company’s control. The risks and uncertainties that may affect the operations, performance and results of the company’s business and forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those set forth under Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of the company’s Form 10-K filed for the year ended December 31, 2011 and in the company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 to be filed with the SEC, as updated by any subsequent Form 10-Qs.
