Except for statements of historical fact, this news release contains certain "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable securities law. Forward-looking information is frequently characterized by words such as "plan", "expect", "project", "intend", "believe", "anticipate", "estimate" and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur. Forward-looking statements such as the estimates of reserves, the references to Forent's exploration program and drilling program and capital expenditures relating to, and timing of, such programs are based on the opinions and estimates at the date the statements are made, and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward- looking statements. There are uncertainties inherent in forward-looking information, including factors beyond Forent's control, and no assurance can be given that the programs will be completed on time, on budget or at all. In addition, there are numerous uncertainties inherent in estimating reserves, including many factors beyond Forent's control, and no assurance can be given that the indicated level of reserves or the recovery thereof will be realized. Forent undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking information if circumstances or management's estimates or opinions should change except as required by law.

The term boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet equal to one barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
