Executive Chairman Richard Adrey commented: "Our drilling program continues to progress successfully at Snake River, with the Cletus #20-10 and Blubaugh #21-1 wells reporting encouraging oil and gas shows in multiple formations.

"Oil and gas production continues to grow as our well development program progresses in Oklahoma, and we have three new wells coming on line this month. Drilling operations are planned to continue with the rig moving onto the ETU #14-8.

"Our exploration activities also continue in Kansas, following an analysis of seismic data at the Colby project targeting the Lansing-Kansas City, Cherokee Sands and Mississippi Lime formations. We are encouraged by the results of this seismic data at Colby, and look forward to updating shareholders as exploration activities progress in this region."
