READER ADVISORIES

Barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio has been calculated using a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel and is based on an energy equivalent conversion method applicable at the burner tip and does not represent an economic value equivalency at the wellhead.
