Any statements included in this press release that address activities, events or developments that the Company "expects," "believes," "plans," "projects," "estimates" or "anticipates" will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially due to a variety of important factors. Among other items, such factors might include: planned and unplanned capital expenditures; changes in general economic conditions; uncertainties in reserve, resource and production estimates; unanticipated recovery or production problems; weather-related interference with business operations; the effects of delays in completion of, or shut-ins of, gas and liquids gathering systems, pipelines and processing facilities; potential costs associated with complying with new or modified regulations; oil and natural gas prices and competition; the impact of derivative positions; production expense estimates; cash flow and cash flow estimates; drilling and operating risks; the Company's ability to replace oil and gas reserves; volatility in the financial and credit markets or in oil and natural gas prices; effects of regulation by governmental agencies including changes in environmental regulations, tax laws and royalties.

Seven Generations has adopted the standard of 6 Mcf:1 bbl when converting natural gas to oil equivalent. boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given the value ratio based on the current price of oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl, utilizing a conversion ratio at 6 Mcf: 1 bbl may be misleading as an indication of value.
