No warranty of any kind, implied, express or statutory, including, but not limited to, warranties as to non-infringement of intellectual property rights or third-party rights, title, latent defects, uninterrupted service, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and freedom from computer viruses or other contaminating or destructive properties, is given in conjunction with this Site, the Content or any other information, materials and software algorithms.

Content on this Site is for information purposes only and does not constitute a solicitation or an offering of securities in any jurisdiction. Information that may be previously disclosed under corporate or securities legislation of Canada or other jurisdictions that may be applicable to Strathcona is not intended in any way to be amended, modified or supplemented by information available on this Site.

CAUTION REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION
Some of the Content on this Site may, from time to time, contain certain “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. If undated, forward-looking information is deemed to be dated as of the date such information was added to the Site. Words such as “seeks”, “continues”, “objectives”, “strategies”, “estimate”, “expect”, “may”, “will”, “project”, “predict”, “potential”, “targeting”, “could”, “might”, “should”, “believe”, “consider”, “opportunity”, “focused”, “goal”, “possible”, “probable”, “future”, “plans”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “forecasts”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “forecast”, “follow”, “assume”, “forward”, “aim” and similar expressions stating or implying that certain actions, events or results may be taken, occur or be achieved, may be used to identify such forward-looking information. In addition, statements relating to “reserves” and “resources” are deemed to be forward-looking information 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.
All such forward-looking information is based on certain assumptions and analyses made by management in light of management’s experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors management believes are appropriate in the circumstances. Although the forward-looking information on this Site reflects management’s beliefs as of the date of such information about Strathcona’s prospects, based on information available to management as of such date and on what management believed to be reasonable assumptions as of such date, there is no certainty that the actual results achieved will be consistent with such forward-looking information. Forward-looking information is not a guarantee of future performance and necessarily involves significant known and unknown risks, assumptions and uncertainties, some that are similar to other oil and gas companies and some that are unique to Strathcona, which may cause Strathcona’s actual results, performance, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking information provided on this Site. Any changes to the assumptions on which such forward-looking information is based could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the anticipated results expressed or implied in the forward-looking information of Strathcona from time to time set out on this Site. By their nature, forward-looking information is subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond Strathcona’s control, including the impact of general economic conditions, industry conditions, volatility of commodity prices, currency fluctuations, imprecision of reserve estimates, environmental risks, competition from other industry participants, the lack of availability of qualified personnel or management and services, changes in environmental regulations, tax laws and royalties and the ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources. Readers are cautioned that the assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable at the time of preparation, may prove to be imprecise and, as such, undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking information. Strathcona’s actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, this forward-looking information, or if any of them do so, what benefits that Strathcona will derive therefrom.
From time to time this Site may contain a summary of Strathcona’s operational outlook for future years, which may be considered to be future oriented financial information or a financial outlook. Such an outlook contains forward-looking information and is inherently based on a number of material assumptions and factors. The actual results of Strathcona’s operations for any period will likely vary from amounts which may be set forth on this Site, and such variations may be material.
Forward-looking information set out on this Site is expressly qualified by the foregoing cautionary statements. Specific materials on the Site containing forward-looking information may contain more specific cautions regarding risks and uncertainties, which you should review. Except as required under applicable laws, Strathcona assumes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking information to reflect new events or circumstances.
PRESENTATION OF OIL AND GAS INFORMATION
This Site may contain certain reserves estimates and/or related estimates of net present values. Such information has been prepared in compliance with Canadian reserves disclosure standards and reserves definitions as set out in National Instrument 51-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities (“NI 51-101”) and in accordance with the definitions, standards and procedures contained in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook. As permitted by NI 51-101, the reserves and related net present value of future net revenue from certain oil and gas reserves information that may be available on this Site from time to time have been determined using only forecast prices and costs. There is no assurance that the forecast price and cost assumptions estimated will be attained and variances could be material. The recovery and reserves estimates are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered. Actual reserves may be greater or less than estimates provided from time to time on this Site.
NI 51-101 permits oil and gas issuers to disclose not only proved, probable and possible reserves, but also resources, and to disclose reserves and production on a gross basis before deducting royalties. Probable reserves, possible reserves and resources are of a higher risk and are less likely to be accurately estimated or recovered than proved reserves. Strathcona is permitted to disclose reserves in accordance with applicable Canadian securities law requirements and the disclosure that may be contained on this Site includes reserves designated as probable reserves, possible reserves and resources, as defined under Canadian standards.
Strathcona has adopted the standard of six thousand cubic feet (“Mcf”) to one barrel (“bbl”) when converting natural gas to oil equivalent. Barrel of oil equivalent (“boe”) conversions may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. As the value ratio of natural gas and crude oil is based on the current prices of natural gas and crude oil is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.
This Site may contain references to financial measures that not defined by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and therefore are referred to as non-IFRS measures. Non-IFRS measures do not have a standardized meaning and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Non-IFRS measures should not be considered as an alternative to or more meaningful than IFRS measures, such as net income or cash flow from operating activities (as determined in accordance with IFRS), as an indication of Strathcona’s performance.
