All reference to dollar values are in Canadian funds. Natural gas has been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent (boe) using 6,000 cubic feet (6 mcf) of natural gas equal to one barrel of oil (6:1). The boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf to 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method and does not represent a value equivalency, therefore boe's may be misleading if used in isolation.
