A BOE conversion ratio of 6:1 is based upon an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. For further information: Curtis Schoenfeld CEO (403) 234-8998 OR Brian Radiff VP, Corporate Development (403) 817-0676
