Boes may be misleading, particularly if used inisolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl (barrel) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at thewellhead.Analogous InformationCertain noted drilling and completion data provided in this document may constitute "analogous information", such as mapping information obtained in geographical proximity to prospectiveexploratory lands to be held by Shona. Such information has been obtained from government sources, regulatory agencies or other industry participants. Management of Shona believes theinformation is relevant as it helps to define the reservoir characteristics in which Shona may hold an interest. Shona is unable to confirm that the analogous information was prepared by a qualifiedreserves evaluator or auditor or in accordance with the COGE Handbook and therefore, the reader is cautioned that the data relied upon by Shona may be in error and/or may not be analogous tosuch lands to be held by Shona. 3.
