Proved reserves of natural gas are those quantities of natural gas, which, by analysis of geological and engineering data, can be estimated with a high degree of confidence to be commercially recoverable from a given date forward, from known reservoirs and under current economic conditions. 1 cubic meter corresponds to 1.308 cubic yards.
