During the reporting period there were a number of operational highlights including:
- An updated reserves estimate to December 31, 2011 was generated by Ryder Scott Company L.P. (“Ryder Scott”). Ryder Scott allocated Aurora total gross proved (1P) reserves of 80.4 mmboe and 92.0 mmboe of proved plus probable (2P) reserves. This represents a 450% increase in 1P reserves and 209% increase in 2P reserves from Aurora’s reserves estimate as at December 31, 2010. These figures are comprised of over 75% liquids on an oil equivalent basis.
