15. Forward-looking Information
This Website may contain certain forward-looking statements and forward-looking information (collectively referred to as “forward-looking information”) within the meaning of applicable securities legislation, including the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, about our current expectations, estimates and projections about the future, based on certain assumptions made by us in light of our experience and perception of historical trends. Although we believe that the expectations represented by such forward-looking information are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.
More particularly, this Website contains statements concerning the anticipated future corporate plans and initiatives for Pengrowth. Forward-looking information is often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “plan”, “intend”, “forecast”, “target”, “project”, “guidance”, “may”, “will”, “should”, “could”, “estimate”, “predict” or similar words suggesting future outcomes or language suggesting an outlook.. These forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Pengrowth, including expectations and assumptions concerning anticipated financial performance; business prospects; strategies; regulatory developments; future bitumen, oil and natural gas commodity prices; differentials between light crude oil, medium crude oil and heavy crude oil prices; future oil and natural gas production levels; future interest and foreign exchange rates, the cost of expanding our property holdings; our ability to obtain equipment in a timely and cost-effective manner to carry out development activities; our ability to market our oil and gas successfully to current and new customers; the impact of increasing competition; our ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms; and our ability to add production and reserves through our acquisition, development and exploration activities. Although Pengrowth believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because Pengrowth can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to: the volatility of commodity prices; production and development costs and capital expenditures; changes in operating costs; operational risks and uncertainties associated with oil and gas activities, including unexpected formations or pressures, premature declines, fires, blow-outs, equipment failures and other accidents; adverse weather conditions which could disrupt output or impact drilling programs; the accuracy and imprecision of reserve estimates and estimates of recoverable quantities of oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids; unforeseen operating problems; pipeline or delivery capacity and constraints; our ability to replace and expand oil and gas reserves; environmental claims and liabilities; incorrect assessments of value when making acquisitions; increases in debt service charges; the loss of key personnel; the marketability of production and demand of our products; defaults by third party operators; unforeseen title defects; fluctuations in foreign currency, exchange rates and interest rates; inadequate insurance coverage; counterparty risk; compliance with environmental laws and regulations; actions by governmental authorities, including the imposition or reassessment of, or changes to, taxes, fees, royalties, duties and other government-imposed compliance costs; changes to laws and government policies that could impact the Company’s business, including environmental (including climate change and greenhouse gas emissions legislation), royalty and tax laws and policies; our ability to access external sources of debt and equity capital; our ability to complete projects on time and on budget; competitive actions from other oil and gas companies or from companies that provide alternative sources of energy; risks and uncertainties associated with obtaining regulatory and stakeholder approval for our operations and exploration and development activities; risks associated with increased activism and public opposition to fossil fuels; risks relating to litigation; and the impact of technology and risks associated with developing and implementing new technologies.
Further information regarding these factors may be found under the heading “Business Risks” herein and under “Risk Factors” in Pengrowth’s most recent AIF, and in Pengrowth’s most recent audited annual Consolidated Financial Statements, management information circular, quarterly reports, material change reports and news releases.
