A conversion ratio of 1 barrel of oil equivalent ("boe"); 6 Mcf has been used, which is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not necessarily represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Boes may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.
