The definition and reconciliation of every non-IFRS measure is introduced in IPC’s MD&A (See “Non-IFRS Measures” therein).

Estimated free money movement technology is predicated on IPC’s present enterprise plans over the interval of 2022 to 2026. Assumptions embody common internet manufacturing of roughly 47 Mboepd, common Brent oil costs of USD 65 to 95 per boe escalating by 2% per 12 months, common gasoline costs of CAD 3.00 per thousand cubic toes, and common Brent to Western Canadian Choose differentials as estimated by IPC’s impartial reserves evaluator and as additional described within the MCR. IPC’s present enterprise plans and assumptions, and the enterprise surroundings, are topic to alter. Precise outcomes might differ materially from forward-looking estimates and forecasts.

Disclosure of Oil and Fuel Info
This press launch comprises references to estimates of gross and internet reserves and sources attributed to the Company’s oil and gasoline belongings. Gross reserves / sources are the working curiosity (working or non-operating) share earlier than deduction of royalties and with out together with any royalty pursuits. Internet reserves / sources are the working curiosity (working or non-operating) share after deduction of royalty obligations, plus royalty pursuits in reserves/sources, and in respect of PSCs in Malaysia, adjusted for price and revenue oil. Until in any other case indicated, reserves / useful resource volumes are introduced on a gross foundation.

Reserve estimates, contingent useful resource estimates and estimates of future internet income in respect of IPC’s oil and gasoline belongings in Canada are efficient as of December 31, 2021, and are included within the stories ready by Sproule Associates Restricted (Sproule), an impartial certified reserves evaluator, in accordance with Nationwide Instrument 51-101 – Requirements of Disclosure for Oil and Fuel Actions (NI 51-101) and the Canadian Oil and Fuel Analysis Handbook (the COGE Handbook) and utilizing Sproule’s December 31, 2021 worth forecasts.

Reserve estimates, contingent useful resource estimates and estimates of future internet income in respect of IPC’s oil and gasoline belongings in France and Malaysia are efficient as of December 31, 2021, and are included within the report ready by ERC Equipoise Ltd. (ERCE), an impartial certified reserves auditor, in accordance with NI 51-101 and the COGE Handbook, and utilizing Sproule’s December 31, 2021 worth forecasts.

The worth forecasts used within the Sproule and ERCE stories can be found on the web site of Sproule (sproule.com) and are contained within the MCR. These worth forecasts are as at December 31, 2021 and will not be reflective of present and future forecast commodity costs.

The reserves life index (RLI) is calculated by dividing the 2P reserves of 270 MMboe as at December 31, 2021, by the mid-point of the 2022 manufacturing steering of 46,000 to 48,000 boepd.

The product sorts comprising the 2P reserves and contingent sources described on this press launch are contained within the MCR. See additionally “Supplemental Info concerning Product Sorts” under. Mild, medium and heavy crude oil reserves/sources disclosed on this press launch embody resolution gasoline and different by-products.

“2P reserves” means proved plus possible reserves. “Proved reserves” are these reserves that may be estimated with a excessive diploma of certainty to be recoverable. It’s probably that the precise remaining portions recovered will exceed the estimated proved reserves. “Possible reserves” are these further reserves which can be much less sure to be recovered than proved reserves. It’s equally probably that the precise remaining portions recovered can be larger or lower than the sum of the estimated proved plus possible reserves.

Every of the reserves classes reported (proved and possible) could also be divided into developed and undeveloped classes. “Developed reserves” are these reserves which can be anticipated to be recovered from current wells and put in services or, if services haven’t been put in, that might contain a low expenditure (for instance, when in comparison with the price of drilling a effectively) to place the reserves on manufacturing. The developed class could also be subdivided into producing and non-producing. “Developed producing reserves” are these reserves which can be anticipated to be recovered from completion intervals open on the time of the estimate. These reserves could also be at present producing or, if shut-in, they should have beforehand been on manufacturing, and the date of resumption of manufacturing should be identified with cheap certainty. “Developed non-producing reserves” are these reserves that both haven’t been on manufacturing, or have beforehand been on manufacturing, however are shut-in, and the date of resumption of manufacturing is unknown. “Undeveloped reserves” are these reserves anticipated to be recovered from identified accumulations the place a major expenditure (for instance, when in comparison with the price of drilling a effectively) is required to render them able to manufacturing. They have to totally meet the necessities of the reserves classification (proved, possible) to which they’re assigned.

Contingent sources are these portions of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be probably recoverable from identified accumulations utilizing established know-how or know-how underneath growth, however which aren’t at present thought of to be commercially recoverable because of a number of contingencies. Contingencies are circumstances that should be glad for a portion of contingent sources to be categorised as reserves which can be: (a) particular to the undertaking being evaluated; and (b) anticipated to be resolved inside an inexpensive timeframe. Contingencies might embody components comparable to financial, authorized, environmental, political, and regulatory issues, or an absence of markets. It is usually applicable to categorise as contingent sources the estimated found recoverable portions related to a undertaking within the early analysis stage. Contingent sources are additional categorised in accordance with the extent of certainty related to the estimates and could also be sub-classified primarily based on a undertaking maturity and/or characterised by their financial standing.

There are three classifications of contingent sources: low estimate, finest estimate and excessive estimate. Finest estimate is a classification of estimated sources described within the COGE Handbook as being thought of to be one of the best estimate of the amount that can be really recovered. It’s equally probably that the precise remaining portions recovered can be larger or lower than one of the best estimate. If probabilistic strategies are used, there must be a minimum of a 50% likelihood that the portions really recovered will equal or exceed one of the best estimate.

Contingent sources are additional categorised primarily based on undertaking maturity. The undertaking maturity subclasses embody growth pending, growth on maintain, growth unclarified and growth not viable. The entire Company’s contingent sources are categorised as both growth on maintain or growth unclarified. Growth on maintain is outlined as a contingent useful resource the place there’s a cheap probability of growth, however there are main non-technical contingencies to be resolved which can be normally past the management of the operator. Growth unclarified is outlined as a contingent useful resource that requires additional appraisal to make clear the potential for growth and has been assigned a decrease probability of growth till contingencies might be clearly outlined. Likelihood of growth is the likelihood of a undertaking being commercially viable.

References to “unrisked” contingent sources volumes implies that the reported volumes of contingent sources haven’t been risked (or adjusted) primarily based on the possibility of commerciality of such sources. In accordance with the COGE Handbook for contingent sources, the possibility of commerciality is solely primarily based on the possibility of growth primarily based on all contingencies required for the re-classification of the contingent sources as reserves being resolved. Subsequently unrisked reported volumes of contingent sources don’t mirror the risking (or adjustment) of such volumes primarily based on the possibility of growth of such sources.

The contingent sources reported on this press launch are estimates solely. The estimates are primarily based upon plenty of components and assumptions every of which comprises estimation error which might lead to future revisions of the estimates as extra technical and industrial info turns into obtainable. The estimation components embody, however will not be restricted to, the mapped extent of the oil and gasoline accumulations, geologic traits of the reservoirs, and dynamic reservoir efficiency. There are quite a few dangers and uncertainties related to restoration of such sources, together with many components past the Company’s management. There may be uncertainty that it will likely be commercially viable to supply any portion of the contingent sources referred to on this press launch. References to “contingent sources” don’t represent, and must be distinguished from, references to “reserves”.

2P reserves and contingent sources included within the stories ready by Sproule and ERCE in respect of IPC’s oil and gasoline belongings in Canada, France and Malaysia have been aggregated by IPC. Estimates of reserves, sources and future internet income for particular person properties might not mirror the identical degree of confidence as estimates of reserves, sources and future internet income for all properties, because of aggregation. This press launch comprises estimates of the online current worth of the long run internet income from IPC’s reserves and contingent sources. The estimated values of future internet income disclosed on this press launch don’t signify truthful market worth. There is no such thing as a assurance that the forecast costs and price assumptions used within the reserve and sources evaluations can be attained and variances could possibly be materials.

The reserves and sources info and information offered on this press launch presents solely a portion of the disclosure required underneath NI 51-101. The entire required info can be contained within the Company’s Annual Info Type for the 12 months ended December 31, 2021, which can be filed on SEDAR (accessible at www.sedar.com) on or earlier than April 1, 2022. Additional info with respect to IPC’s reserves, contingent sources and estimates of future internet income, together with assumptions referring to the calculation of internet current worth and different related info associated to the contingent sources disclosed, is disclosed within the MCR obtainable underneath IPC’s profile on www.sedar.com and on IPC’s web site at www.international-petroleum.com.

BOEs could also be deceptive, significantly if utilized in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 thousand cubic toes (Mcf) per 1 barrel (bbl) is predicated on an power equivalency conversion technique primarily relevant on the burner tip and doesn’t signify a price equivalency on the wellhead. As the worth ratio between pure gasoline and crude oil primarily based on the present costs of pure gasoline and crude oil is considerably completely different from the power equivalency of 6:1, using a 6:1 conversion foundation could also be deceptive as a sign of worth.

Supplemental Info concerning Product Sorts

The next desk is meant to supply supplemental details about the product kind composition of IPC’s internet common day by day manufacturing figures offered on this doc:
