The Company’s guidance is forward-looking information that is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. In addition, our 2013 capital budget is subject to change depending upon a number of factors, including additional data on the Company’s Wolfcamp oil shale resource play, results of horizontal and vertical drilling, completions and recompletions, including pad drilling and batch completions, economic and industry conditions at the time of drilling, prevailing and anticipated prices for oil, NGLs and gas, the availability of sufficient capital resources for drilling prospects, the Company’s financial results and the availability of lease extensions and renewals on reasonable terms.
