In accordance with SEC guidelines ("SEC Case"), at year-end 2012, reserve calculations were based on the average first day of the month price for the prior 12 months. The prices utilized for Gulfport's year-end 2012 reserve report were $91.32 per barrel of crude oil and $2.76 per MMBTU of natural gas, in each case as adjusted by lease for transportation fees and regional price differentials. Utilizing these prices, the present value of Gulfport's total proved reserves discounted at 10% (referred to as "PV-10") was $437 million at December 31, 2012. The PV-10 value of our total proved and probable reserves was $863 million at December 31, 2012. In addition to the SEC Case, Gulfport has also prepared estimates of its year-end PV-10 values using two alternate commodity price assumptions. The following table summarizes Gulfport's PV-10 values as of December 31, 2012 under each of the three cases. For the period presented, the SEC Case PV-10 proved reserve values, a non-GAAP measure, are equal to the standardized measure, a GAAP measure.

¹The Flat Price Case was based on the posted spot prices as of December 31, 2012 for both oil and natural gas.
For oil and natural gas liquids, the West Texas Intermediate posted price of $91.82 per barrel was adjusted by
lease for quality, transportation fees and regional price differentials. For natural gas, the Henry Hub spot price of
$3.35 per MMBTU was adjusted by lease for energy content, transportation fees, and regional price differentials.
Such prices were held constant throughout the estimated lives of the reserves.
²The NYMEX Case was based on the forward closing prices on the New York Mercantile Exchange for oil and
natural gas as of December 31, 2012. For oil and natural gas liquids, the price was based on a crude oil price
which decreased from $93.19 per barrel to $85.59 per barrel during the life of the reserves and was adjusted
by lease for quality, transportation fees and regional price differentials. For natural gas, the price was based on
a natural gas price which increased from $3.56 per MMBTU to $5.16 per MMBTU over the life of the properties
and was adjusted by lease for energy content, transportation fees and regional price differentials.
