Reserves

As Bengal transitions from a pure exploration company to one with both production and exploration, we have successfully been able to book reserves. As we continue to drill, appraise and develop our assets, we would anticipate seeing additional activity reflected in positive revisions to our reserve report.

The significant and continuing growth in Bengal’s reserve base is a direct result of the drilling and development activities undertaken in the Company’s Cuisinier Field, and demonstrates the inherent value of this large, ultralight oil weighted asset base.
