Oil and Gas Advisory. This press release may contain disclosure expressed as "boe". All oil and natural gas equivalency volumes have been derived using the ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil. Equivalency measures may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head. The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release. Copyright (c) 2010 Thenewswire.ca - All rights reserved.
