The reserves data outlined below is based upon an evaluation by Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc. (“NSAI”) with an effective date of December 31, 2018.  The reserves data summarizes PetroShale’s crude oil and natural gas reserves and the net present value of future net revenue for these reserves using forecast prices and costs. All references to reserves are to gross Company reserves, meaning PetroShale’s working interest reserves before consideration of royalty interests. The reserve report has been prepared in accordance with the standards contained in the COGE Handbook and the reserve definitions contained in National Instrument 51‑101 (“NI 51-101”) and CSA Staff Notice 51‑324.  No attempt was made to evaluate possible reserves.  Please see PetroShale’s Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2018 for complete reserves disclosure.

(1) Product type transfers reflects the initial inclusion of NGLs in the Company’s reserves beginning on January 1st, 2018, and the offsetting adjustment to wellhead gas as a result of NGL recovery.

(2) Technical revisions include removal of locations based on development permitting and activity of our operators on non-operated properties and probable reserve assignments to proved well locations. Additionally, it reflects changes to reserves based on estimates from further production information gathered in 2018 from our wells and analogous wells near our lands, and revisions to interest on certain non-operated wells.(1) Product type transfers reflects the initial inclusion of NGLs in the Company’s reserves beginning on January 1st, 2018, and the offsetting adjustment to wellhead gas as a result of NGL recovery.
