Forward-looking information

This PetroGlobe Inc. news release may contain forward-looking information relating to business strategy, geographic areas of activity, capital expenditures, future drilling, drilling costs, production rates, cash flow, investment payouts and other matters. This information is based on PetroGlobe's current expectations and assumptions as to a number of factors, including access to capital, availability of drilling rigs, weather conditions, drilling success, resulting reserves production, ability to tie-in production, decline rates, commodity prices, exchange rates, interest rates and general economic and industry conditions. The material assumptions applied were that PetroGlobe Inc. continues its exploration and development focus in Alberta, sufficient cash is available to fund capital programs, through existing cash balances and future capital raises on acceptable terms, drilling costs are maintained at expected levels, drilling results, reserves and production are within expectations and there is sufficient access to transportation, processing facilities, commodity prices and sales markets. If those expectations and assumptions prove to be incorrect, or factors change, then actual results could differ materially from the forward-looking information contained in this news release.
