Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements This presentation includes forward looking statements. The words “expect”, “anticipate”, “intends”, “believe”, “may”, “predict”, “will”, “plan”, “estimate”, “aim”, “forecast”, “project” and similar expressions (or their negative) identify certain of these forward looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These forward looking statements are statements regarding the Company's intentions, beliefs or current expectations concerning, among other things, the Company's results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, growth, strategies and the industry in which the Company operates. The forward looking statements in this presentation are based on numerous assumptions and estimates, believed by the Company to be reasonable at the time made, regarding the Company's present and future business strategies and the environment in which the Company will operate in the future. Forward looking statements involve inherent known and unknown risks, uncertainties and contingencies because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future and may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward looking statements. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond the Company's ability to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions, currency fluctuations, the behavior of other market participants, the actions of regulators and other factors such as the Company's ability to continue to obtain financing to meet its liquidity needs, changes in the political, social and regulatory framework in which the Company operates or in economic or technological trends or conditions. Past performance should not be taken as an indication or guarantee of future results, and no representation or warranty, express or implied, is made regarding future performance. Statements contained herein describing documents and agreements are summaries only and such summaries are qualified in their entirety by reference to such documents and agreements. Each forward-looking statement in this presentation speaks only as of the date of this presentation. Except as required by applicable law, the Company disclaims any intention, obligation or responsibility to revise or update any forward-looking statements contained in this presentation to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this presentation. Industry and Market Data This presentation has been prepared by the Company and includes market data and other statistical information from third-party sources, including independent industry publications, government publications or other published independent sources. Although the Company believes these third-party sources are reliable as of their respective dates, the Company has not independently verified the accuracy or completeness of this information. Some data is also based on the Company's good faith estimates, which are derived from a review of internal sources as well as the third-party sources described above. 1


Disclaimers (cont’d) Reserve Presentation This presentation includes information with respect to proved, probable and possible reserves of the Company. Under SEC rules, proved reserves are those quantities of oil and natural gas that by analysis of geoscience and engineering data can be estimated with reasonable certainty to be economically producible from a given date forward from known reservoirs, and under existing economic conditions, operating methods and government regulations. The term “reasonable certainty” implies a high degree of confidence that the quantities of oil and natural gas actually recovered will equal or exceed the estimate. Reasonable certainty can be established using techniques that have been proven effective by actual production from projects in the same reservoir or an analogous reservoir or by other evidence using reliable technology that establishes reasonable certainty. Reliable technology is a grouping of one or more technologies (including computational methods) that has been field tested and has been demonstrated to provide reasonably certain results with consistency and repeatability in the formation being evaluated or in an analogous formation. Probable reserves are reserves that are less certain to be recovered than proved reserves but which, together with proved reserves, are as likely as not to be recovered. Estimates of probable reserves which may potentially be recoverable through additional drilling or recovery techniques are by nature more uncertain than estimates of proved reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of not actually being realized by us. Possible reserves are reserves that are less certain to be recovered than probable reserves. Estimates of possible reserves are also inherently imprecise. Estimates of probable and possible reserves are also continually subject to revisions based on production history, results of additional exploration and development, price changes and other factors. Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDAX is a supplemental non GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements. The Company defines EBITDAX as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization, exploration expense, gains and losses from derivatives less the current period settlements of matured derivative contracts and the other items described below. EBITDAX is not a measure of net income as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to EBITDAX is net income (loss). Management believes EBITDAX is useful because it allows them to more effectively evaluate the Company’s operating performance and compare the results of the Company’s operations from period to period and against the Company’s peers without regard to financing methods or capital structure. The Company excludes the items listed above from net income in arriving at EBITDAX because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within the Company’s industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. EBITDAX has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP or as an indicator of our liquidity. Certain items excluded from EBITDAX are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historical costs of depreciable assets. The Company’s presentation of EBITDAX should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. The Company’s computations of EBITDAX may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. PV-10 is also considered a non-GAAP financial measure. PV-10 is derived from the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and, as used in this presentation, is determined based on SEC pricing. PV-10 is a computation of the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows on a pre-tax basis. PV-10 is equal to the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows at the applicable date, before deducting future income taxes, discounted at 10 percent. The Company believes that the presentation of PV-10 is relevant and useful to investors because it presents the discounted future net cash flows attributable to its estimated net proved reserves prior to taking into account future corporate income taxes, and it is a useful measure for evaluating the relative monetary significance of its oil, natural gas liquids (“NGL”) and natural gas properties. Further, investors may utilize the measure as a basis for comparison of the relative size and value of the Company’s reserves to other companies. The Company uses this measure when assessing the potential return on investment related to its oil, NGL and natural gas properties. PV-10, however, is not equal to, or a substitute for, the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows. The Company’s PV-10 measure and the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows do not purport to represent the fair value of its oil and natural gas reserves. 2
