The Company 
Sun Resources NL
The act of boring a hole (1) to determine whether hydrocarbons are present in commercially recoverable quantities and (2) to accomplish production of the hydrocarbons (including drilling to inject fluids). There are three types of drilling: exploratory - drilling to locate probable hydrocarbon deposits or to establish the nature of geological structures; such wells may not be capable of production if hydrocarbons are discovered; developmental - drilling to delineate the boundaries of a known hydrocarbon pools to enhance the productive capacity of the producing oil & gas property; and directional - drilling that is deliberately made to depart significantly from the vertical

Farmor Owner/leaser of the farm
Fossil Fuels Fuels (coal, oil, natural gas, etc.) that result from the compression of ancient plant and animal life formed over millions of years
Frack Fracture stimulation treatment performed on oil and gas wells with low-permeability reservoirs
Natural Gas An odorless, colorless, tasteless, non-toxic clean-burning fossil fuel. It is usually found in fossil fuel deposits and used as a fuel
Hydrocarbons Organic compounds consisting entirely of hydrogen and carbon. Hydrocarbons are the principal constituents of oil and natural gas

NRI Net Revenue Interest
Petroleum Liquid, gaseous and solid hydrocarbons, including oil, natural gas, gas condensate, ethane, propane, butane and pentane.  Generally refers to crude oil or the refined products obtained from the processing of crude oil (gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, etc.) Petroleum also includes lease condensate, unfinished oils, and natural gas plant liquids
Pilot Hole
A preliminary vertical well drilled from the surface to intersect and evaluate the target formations prior to using the shallow parts of the well as a guide for drilling the horizontal development well
Pipeline A continuous length of welded steel pipe that conveys gas from a gas field to its ultimate consumer
Plugged and Abandoned When all the reservoir and high-pressure zones in a well are sealed with cement so that no fluid can escape
Production, Oil and Gas The lifting of oil and gas to the surface and gathering, treating, field processing (as in the case of processing gas to extract liquid hydrocarbons), and field storage
Reservoir A rock or geological formation that holds petroleum within the pore spaces between individual grains (of sand)

Tank Farm An installation used by trunk and gathering pipeline companies, crude oil producers, and terminal operators (except refineries) to store crude oil
Tcf, tcf Trillion cubic feet (of natural gas)
TD Total Depth. The planned deepest measured depth of the well
True Vertical Depth. The shortest vertical distance from a point in the well (usually the current or final depth) to an equivalent point at the surface, usually the elevation of the rotary kelly bushing (RKB)
Well A hole drilled in the earth for the purpose of (1) finding or producing crude oil or natural gas; or (2) producing services related to the production of crude or natural gas
Wellhead The point at which the crude (and/or natural gas) exits the ground
