Compensation of shareholders' losses.

Reasons for doing the reverse split.

The reverse split was aimed at decreasing the amount of shares held by speculators.

Reasons for decrease in share price.

Speculation. The management of the company urges honest shareholders not to take their lead from the speculators. We can put an end to speculation only if honest shareholders support the company.

Do you consider buying other companies with shares or loans?


Is long-term strategy still to buy smaller Russian companies?


Can you give us an unaudited report of profits for the first three quarters of 2007?

No, because speculators can abuse this information.

Are you also taking shares away from the enemies of NWOL through a lawsuit?

The company plans to start this after the audit is completed.

Why does the management think adding shares will compensate those of the shareholders who have stayed with the Company from before the merger till present when those added shares will simply decrease the value of all outstanding shares proportionately?

Decrease in share price resulting from the issuance of additional shares to cover the losses of the shareholders at the time of the merger can happen only at the initial stage. The audit, the results of which will be received in the nearest time, will contribute to the affirmation of the real value of the company and, consequently, will contribute to the increase in share price. Thus, the compensated shareholders will be able to substantially cover their losses by way of selling the shares at a higher price.

What objectives does the company set with regard to production and drilling in 2008?

In 2008 it is planned to increase production by 60 000 tons. This objective will be reached by drilling 5 additional wells.
