Statement on Hurricane Harvey

Our hearts go out to the families and communities affected by Hurricane Harvey and the related flooding. While we at Great Western have strong industry ties throughout Texas, we have even greater personal connections through our employees with families and friends that reside in the affected areas.

Though our location in Colorado prevents us from volunteering with initial relief efforts, we want to support the organizations providing goods and services to those in need during this crucial time. In the coming days, both the Company and our employees will be making a financial contribution to the American Red Cross.

Great Western and our employees want to thank all the first responders, volunteers, and emergency service organizations behind the response efforts in the Gulf region. We will continue to provide support to the impacted communities as they work to rebuild in the coming weeks and months.

Our thoughts remain with all families, friends and all persons in our network of relationships affected by this tragic event.

Great Western is an independent oil and natural gas company with assets located in the Denver-Julesburg Basin in Colorado. These operations have not been impacted by the flooding in the Gulf region, and we expect minimal, if any, impact going forward.
