Based upon the foregoing analysis and Crew's expertise in the Montney formation in NEBC, it is expected that significant additional reserves will be developed in the future with continued drilling success on currently undeveloped Montney acreage together with further development, completion refinements and improved economic conditions. Additional drilling, completion, and test results are required before Crew can commit to development and these contingent resources can be converted to reserves and a larger component of Prospective Resources is converted to Contingent Resource.
The Prospective Resources have not been risked for chance of discovery. There is no certainty that any portion of the Prospective Resources will be discovered. The Prospective and Contingent Resources have not been risked for chance of development. There is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the Prospective (if discovered) or Contingent Resources. The Contingent Resource contingencies are identified as economic or non-technical, there are no technical contingencies. Significant positive factors are historic drilling success and production history on the more fully developed Montney acreage, abundant well log and production test data. Potential negative factors include lack of long term production history over the majority of Crew lands, lack of infrastructure, potential for variations in the quality of the Montney formation where minimal well data currently exists, access to the substantial amount of capital which would be required to develop the resources, low commodity prices that would curtail the economics of development and the future performance of wells, regulatory approvals, access to the required services at the appropriate cost and topographic or surface restrictions.
Definitions of Oil and Gas Resources and Reserves
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 the analysis of drilling, geological, geophysical and engineering data; the use of established technology; and specified economic conditions, which are generally accepted as being reasonable. Reserves are classified according to the degree of certainty associated with the estimates as follows:
Proved Reserves are 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.
Probable Reserves are those 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.
Possible Reserves are those additional reserves that are less certain to be recovered than probable reserves. It is unlikely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the sum of the estimated proved plus probable plus possible reserves.
Cumulative Production is the cumulative quantity of petroleum that has been recovered at a given date.
Resources encompasses all petroleum quantities that originally existed on or within the earth's crust in naturally occurring accumulations, including Discovered and Undiscovered (recoverable and unrecoverable) plus quantities already produced. "Total resources" is equivalent to "Total Petroleum Initially-In-Place". Resources are classified in the following categories:
