rights to enforce the gas sales agreement between Shanxi Province Guoxin
Energy Development Group Limited and China United Coalbed Methane
Corporation, Ltd., to which we are an express beneficiary; additional
pipelines and gathering systems needed to transport our gas may not be
constructed, or if constructed may not be timely, or their routes may differ
from those anticipated; the pipeline and local distribution/compressed
natural gas companies may decline to purchase or take our gas, or we may not
be able to enforce our rights under definitive agreements with pipelines;
conflicts with coal mining operations or coordination of our exploration and
production activities with mining activities could adversely impact or add
significant costs to our operations; certain of the proposed transactions
with Dart Energy (formerly Arrow Energy) may not close on a timely basis or
at all, including due to a failure to satisfy closing conditions or
otherwise; the anticipated benefits to us of the transactions with Dart

may be different than anticipated; Dart Energy may exercise its right to
terminate the Farmout Agreement at any time; the Chinese Ministry of Commerce
("MOC") may not approve the extension of our PSCs on a timely basis or at
all; our Chinese partner companies or the MOC may require certain changes to
the terms and conditions of our PSC in conjunction with their approval of any
extension of our PSCs; our lack of operating history; limited and potentially
inadequate management of our cash resources; risk and uncertainties
associated with exploration, development and production of coalbed methane;
proved reserves may not be reported in a timely manner or at all and, if
reported, may be smaller than anticipated; our inability to extract or sell
all or a substantial portion of our estimated Contingent Resources; we may
not satisfy requirements for listing our securities on a securities exchange;
