Note:


(1)  The forecast prices used in the calculations of the present value of

     Eastern Ukraine and Western Ukraine asset forecast prices.
(2)  Estimated values do not represent fair market value.

Oil and Gas Equivalents

A barrel of oil equivalent ("boe") or units of natural gas equivalents ("Mcfe") is calculated using the conversion factor of 6 Mcf (thousand cubic feet) of natural gas being equivalent to one barrel of oil. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl (barrel) or an Mcfe conversion of 1bbl: 6 Mcf is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead and is not based on either energy content or current prices. While the boe ratio is useful for comparative measures, it does not accurately reflect individual product values and might be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. As well, given that the value ratio, based on the current price of crude oil to natural gas, is significantly different from the 6:1 energy equivalency ratio, using a 6:1 conversion ratio may be misleading as an indication of value.

Reserves Classifications

"Gross Reserves" are the Company's working interest (operating or non-operating) share before deduction of royalties and without including any royalty interests of the Company. "Net Reserves" are the Company's working interest (operating or non-operating) share after deduction of royalty obligations, plus the Company's royalty interests in reserves.

Defined Terms

"Reserves" are estimated remaining quantities of oil and natural gas and related substances anticipated to be commercially recoverable by application of development projects to known accumulations from a given date forward under defined conditions. Reserves must further satisfy four criteria: they must be discovered, recoverable, commercial, and remaining (as of the evaluation date) based on the development project(s) applied.

Reserves are further categorized in accordance with the level of certainty associated with the estimates and may be sub-classified based on project maturity and/or characterized by development and production status.

"Proved Reserves" are reserves that can be estimated with a high degree of certainty to be recoverable, from a given date forward, from known reservoirs and under defined economic conditions, operating methods and government regulations.

"Probable Reserves" are those additional Reserves that are less certain to be recovered than Proved Reserves but more certain to be recovered than Possible Reserves.
