The wells were producing a combined daily average of 1,789 MCF of gas and 61 barrels of oil for the 6-month period preceding April 1st. Many of the 56 wells are shut-in providing opportunities for the operators to bring production back online and increase existing production through rework and stimulation procedures.

Our efforts continue to allow for growth of cash flows and increased value for our shareholders."
