Note on Boe: Barrels of oil equivalent or Boe, are derived by converting natural gas to oil at the ratio of six thousand cubic feet (“Mcf”) of natural gas equals one barrel of oil. This conversion is derived from energy equivalency and does not represent a value equivalency and therefore may be misleading if used in isolation.
