All reserve references in this press release are to gross reserves as at the effective date of the applicable evaluation. Gross reserves are Jericho's total working interest reserves before the deduction of any royalties and including any royalty interests of Jericho. The recovery and reserve estimates of Jericho's crude oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas reserves provided herein are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered. Actual crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids reserves may be greater than or less than the estimates provided herein. All estimates of reserves and future net revenue contained ‎herein were derived ‎from the reserve evaluation, in accordance with the definitions, standards and procedures contained in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook and Ni 51-101. It should not be assumed that the estimated net present value presented herein represents the fair market value of the reserves. There is no assurance that the forecast prices and costs assumptions will be attained and variances could be material. The recovery and reserve estimates of Jericho's crude oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas reserves provided herein are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered. Actual crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids reserves may be greater than or less than the estimates provided herein.

"reserves" are estimated remaining quantities of oil and natural gas and related substances anticipated to be recoverable from known accumulations, as of a given date, based on (a) analysis of drilling, geological, geophysical, and engineering data; (b) the use of established technology; and (c) specified economic conditions, which are generally accepted as being reasonable and shall be disclosed. Reserves are classified according to the degree of certainty associated with the estimates being "proved reserves", "probable reserves" and "possible reserves".

In this press release "proved reserves" means those reserves that can be estimated with a high degree of certainty to be ‎recoverable. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the estimated proved reserves.

In this press release "proved plus probable reserves" means probable reserves being additional reserves that are less ‎certain to be recovered than proved reserves. It is equally likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will be greater ‎or less than the sum of the estimated proved plus probable reserves.
