The net present value of the Company's reserves in its Marcellus property include a deduction for the fees paid to Epsilon's wholly owned subsidiary, Epsilon Midstream, LLC, associated with the Auburn gathering system in which Epsilon holds a 35% working interest. The associated income for Epsilon Midstream, LLC is not accounted for in the MLL report.

The MLL report has 24.3 net drilled and undrilled well locations booked on the Marcellus property. Epsilon believes there are over 16 net additional unbooked horizontal well locations based on current spacing units with the potential for further downspacing by using spacing units consistent with the practice undertaken by other operators in Epsilon's area of operations. The non-producing, undeveloped and probable development locations in the MLL report have been assigned reserves of 4.9 bcf per well.
