Certain statements in this Presentation are forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements include statements typically containing words such as “intends”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “targets”, “plans”, “projects”, “estimates” and words of similar import. Statements relating to "reserves" and "resources" are deemed to be forward looking statements, as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the reserves and resources described exist in the quantities predicted or estimated, and can be profitably produced in the future. These forward-looking statements speak only as at the date of this Presentation and you should not place undue reliance on them. These statements are based on current expectations and beliefs and, by their nature, are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, performances and achievements to differ. The forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions regarding the Company’s present and future business strategies and environments in which the Company will operate in the future and such assumptions may or may not prove to be correct. No statement in this Presentation is intended to be nor may it be construed as a profit forecast. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Forward-looking information is based on management\'s current expectations and is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by the Company and described in the forward-looking information. The material risk factors affecting the Company and its business are similar to those of other companies engaged in the business of exploring for and producing oil and gas, both domestically and in foreign countries and include, but are not limited to: risks in identifying and acquiring oil and gas interests on acceptable terms; the ability of the Company to obtain financing on acceptable terms; geological risks; drilling risks; oil and gas industry operational risks in development, exploration and production (including encountering unexpected formations or pressures, premature declines of reservoirs, potential environmental damage, blow-outs, fires and spills); delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the ability to attract and retain key personnel and to acquire equipment and services in a timely and cost efficient manner; the risk of commodity price and foreign exchange rate fluctuations; competition risks; general economic risks, risks associated with the timely receipt of any required regulatory approvals and changes to the regulatory impacting levels of royalties and taxes and the risks associated with international activity (including the uncertainty associated with negotiating with foreign governments, adverse determinations or rulings by governmental authorities, changes in energy policies or the personnel administering them, nationalization, arbitrating and enforcing claims against entities that may claim sovereignty and other risks arising out of foreign governmental sovereignty). References to boes may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. In addition, design capacity is not necessarily indicative of the stabilized production levels that may ultimately be achieved. Moreover, reported average or instantaneous production levels may not be reflective of sustainable production rates and future production rates may differ materially from the production rates reflected in this Presentation due to, among other factors, difficulties or interruptions encountered during the production of bitumen or other hydrocarbons.
By attending the physical presentation or by accepting the Presentation you will be taken to have represented, warranted and undertaken that: (i) you are a relevant person (as defined above); (ii) you have read, acknowledge and agree to comply with the contents of this notice; and (iii) you will not at any time have any discussion, correspondence or contact concerning the information in this Presentation with any of the directors or employees of the Company, its subsidiaries nor with any of their suppliers, customers, sub-contractors or any governmental or regulatory body, or otherwise distribute this Presentation, without the prior written consent of the Company.
