Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This website contains certain forward-looking statements (forecasts) under applicable securities laws relating to future events or future performance. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon assumptions and judgements with respect to the future including, but not limited to, the outlook for commodity markets and capital markets, the performance of producing wells and reservoirs, well development and operating performance, general economic and business conditions, weather, the regulatory and legal environment and other risks associated with oil and gas operations. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “expect”, “projects”, “plans”, “anticipates” and similar expressions. These statements represent management’s expectations or beliefs concerning, among other things, future operating results and various components thereof affecting the economic performance of Surge. Undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements which are based upon management’s assumptions and are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, including the business risks discussed above, which may cause actual performance and financial results in future periods to differ materially from any projections of future performance or results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, readers are cautioned that events or circumstances could cause results to differ materially from those predicted.

All forward-looking statements contained on this website are based on Surge’s beliefs and assumptions based on information available at the time the assumption was made. The use of any of the words “anticipate”, “continue”, “estimate”, “expect”, “may”, “will”, “project”, “should”, “believe” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward looking statements. By its nature, such forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward looking statements. While Surge believes the expectations reflected in those forward looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward looking statements contained throughout this website should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date specified in the statements..

Presentation of Oil and Gas Information

This website 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 website 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 website.

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. Surge is permitted to disclose reserves in accordance with applicable Canadian securities law requirements and the disclosure that may be contained on this website includes reserves designated as probable reserves, possible reserves and resources, as defined under Canadian standards.

Surge 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.

Non-IFRS Measures

This website 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 Surge’s performance.
