Certain statements in this news release should be regarded as
"forward-looking" statements within the meaning of the securities laws. These
statements speak only of as of the date made. Such statements are subject to
assumptions, risk and uncertainty. Actual results or events may vary

As of January 1, 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
changed its rules to permit oil and gas companies, in their filings with the
SEC, to disclose not only proved reserves, but also probable reserves and
possible reserves. Proved oil and gas reserves are those quantities of oil
and gas, which, by analysis of geoscience and engineering data, can be
estimated with reasonable certainty to be economically producible - from a
given date forward, from known reservoirs, and under existing economic
conditions, operating methods, and government regulations - prior to the time
at which contracts providing the right to operate expire. Probable reserves
include those additional reserves that a company believes are as likely as
not to be recovered and possible reserves include those additional reserves
that are less certain to be recovered than probable reserves. We may use
certain terms in our news releases, such as "reserve potential," that the
SEC's guidelines strictly prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC.
In addition, we do not represent that the probable or possible reserves
described herein meet the recoverability thresholds established by the SEC in
its new definitions. Investors are urged to also consider closely the
disclosure in our filings with the SEC, available from our website at
www.endeavourcorp.com. Endeavour is also subject to the requirements
of the London Stock Exchange and considers the disclosures in this release to
be appropriate and/or required under the guidelines of that exchange.
