Proved reserves based on year end product prices at 12/31/08 of $5.71 per Mmbtu of natural gas and $41.00 per Bbl of oil. Current Petrohawk net unrisked estimates.

StrongProductionGrowth
Haynesville Shale becoming the dominant part of our production profile, Eagle Ford Shale emerging with compelling F&D costs, Fayetteville Shale continues to be an important building block
