2012 Year-End SEC Proved Reserves – Pro FormaTotal proved reserves as of December 31, 2012 pro forma for the sale are estimated to be 1.07 trillion cubic feet equivalent or 179 million barrels of oil equivalent with the Company's pro forma proved reserve liquid mix increasing from 48% to 52% as a result of the planned natural gas asset divestiture. Proved developed reserves pro forma for the sale will be reduced to approximately 37% of total proved reserves as the assets planned for sale are 100% proved developed producing reserves. As stated in PDC's reserves press release issued earlier today, the Company's 2012 year-end proved reserves do not include anticipated future contributions from PDC's emerging liquid-rich Utica Shale position.
