Great news for IXOG investors! Mr. Moriarty initiated his coverage on Index Oil and Gas following a recent evaluation of several oil and gas companies. Highly encouraging to Mr. Moriarity is Index Oil and Gas's high rate of success in production drilling in known production fields.

This is certainly another company for investors to watch closely! With approximately a 75% success rate in these endeavors, the company has utilized cash flow from these producing wells to fund larger projects as the company seeks to grow and expand their revenue base. Index is utilizing the cash flow from the 19 wells currently in production to expand into larger projects in the Gulf Coast region with larger shares of each project.

There was a press release issued yesterday by the company that should excite its investors. Pursuant to the Letter of Intent announced February 16, 2007, the company has contracted to participate in the Shadyside Prospect ("Shadyside") in Saint Mary Parish, Louisiana. This will be the company's largest prospect to date! Index's participation in Shadyside is in line with Index's strategy to include in its exploration portfolio potentially high impact wells that offer Index opportunities for significant upside results without exposing investors to single critical events.

The stock closed Tuesday at $1.20 a share.
