    Canadian standards, including NI 51-101, differ significantly from the requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and reserve and resource information contained or incorporated by reference into this prospectus and any prospectus supplement may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by U.S. companies. In particular, the term “resource” does not equate to the term “reserves”.

    Under U.S. standards, oil and gas deposits may not be classified as “proved reserves” unless the determination has been made that the oil and gas is reasonably certain to be economically and legally produced and sold under economic conditions prevailing at the time the reserve determination is made. The SEC’s disclosure standards normally do not permit the inclusion of information concerning “probable reserves”, “possible reserves” or “resources” or other descriptions of the amount of oil and gas deposits that do not constitute “proved reserves” by U.S. standards in documents filed with the SEC.

    U.S. investors should also understand that “resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an “resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of a “resource” exists or is economically or legally recoverable. The Canadian standards for identification of “proved reserves” are also not the same as those of the SEC, and proved reserves that may be reported in the future by InterOil in compliance with Canadian standards may not qualify as “proved reserves” under SEC standards. Accordingly, information concerning oil and gas reserves and resources set forth herein may not be comparable with information made public by companies that report in accordance with United States standards.
