    (1) Columns may not add due to rounding.

Net present values take into account wellbore abandonment liabilities and are based on the price assumptions that are contained in the following table. It should not be assumed that the estimated future net revenues represent fair market value of the reserves. There is no assurance that the forecast price and cost assumptions will be attained and variances could be material.

    Adjusted F&D costs including
    Future Development Costs

                  F&D costs per boe

    F&D costs excluding FDC (2)
                  F&D costs per boe

    F&D costs including FDC (3)
                  F&D costs per boe
                  - proved plus
                  probable           $ 25.50  $ 26.79  $ 26.73       $   26.32
                  F&D costs per boe
                  - proved           $ 30.96  $ 37.05  $ 28.01       $   32.60
    (1) The calculation of adjusted F&D includes the change in FDC, excludes
        the effect of economic revisions related to downward revisions of
        natural gas prices.
    (2) The calculation of F&D excludes the change in FDC and excludes the
        effects of acquisitions and dispositions.
    (3) The calculation of F&D includes the change in FDC and excludes the
        effects of acquisitions and dispositions.

Capital expenditures for 2012 have been reduced by $137 million related to joint venture carried capital (2011 - $107 million). We use Adjusted F&D to assess the economic viability of our oil development programs. F&D costs are calculated in accordance with NI 51-101, which include the change in FDC, on a proved and proved plus probable basis. For comparative purposes we also disclose F&D costs excluding FDC.

The aggregate of the exploration and development costs incurred in the most recent financial year and the change during that year in estimated future development costs generally will not reflect total finding and development costs related to reserves additions for that year.
