This Report contains forward-looking statements that are based on
management's current expectations, estimates and projections. Words such
as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes", "projects"
and "estimates," and variations of such words and similar expressions
are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These
statements constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of
Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and are subject to the safe
harbors created thereby. These statements are not guarantees of future
performance and involve risks and uncertainties and are based on a
number of assumptions that could ultimately prove inaccurate and,
therefore, there can be no assurance that they will prove to be
accurate. Actual results and outcomes may vary materially from what is
expressed or forecast in such statements due to various risks and
uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties include, among other
things, the possibility of drilling cost overruns and technical
difficulties, volatility of oil and gas prices, competition, risks
inherent in the Company's oil and gas operations, the inexact nature of
interpretation of seismic and other geological and geophysical data,
imprecision of reserve estimates, and the Company's ability to replace
and expand oil and gas reserves. Accordingly, stockholders and potential
investors are cautioned that certain events or circumstances could cause
actual results to differ materially from those projected.
