President and CEO Steven Tedesco commented "Despite the sharp reduction in natural gas prices, we have been able to grow production while reducing overall costs in response to these challenging times. We are continuing to grow the Company as evidenced by the recent acquisition of the Thayer project in Kansas that will allow us to show further growth in production going forward while we continue to aggressively lower costs in all our project areas and corporately. We continue to look for additional ways to take advantage of the current environment to grow the Company while improving our cost structure and liquidity".
