Summary Information Relating to Orion

At its Kaybob property, a natural gas condensate field, Orion operates and has a 91% working interest in 25,600 gross acres. At its Redwater property, a light oil field, Orion operates and has an 82% average working interest in 8,786 gross acres. At its Bigstone property, a natural gas field, Orion operates and has a 100% working interest in 1,920 acres.

MEANING OF BOE: When used in this press release, boe means a barrel of oil equivalent on the basis of 1 boe to 6 thousand cubic feet of natural gas. Boe/d means a barrel of oil equivalent per day. Boe's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 1 boe for 6 thousand cubic feet of natural gas is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
