For the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company recorded oil and gas revenues of $331,000 and $601,000 as compared to $287,000 and $681,000 for the comparable period of 2009. The changes in oil & gas revenue was due changes in the price of oil and gas in the marketplace.

The Company recorded oil and gas operating expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, of $316,000 and $672,000, as compared to $371,000 and $757,000 for the comparable period of 2009. The decrease was due to a decrease in payroll costs.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, corporate general & administrative expenses were $124,000 and $323,000 as compared to $235,000 and $497,000 for the comparable periods in 2009. The decrease is primarily due to decreased payroll costs.

The Company recorded an other expense of $350,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2010. In 2009, the Company was considering an association with an oil & gas company in South Texas that was operating under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code. During 2009, we invested $350,000 in the South Texas company through both a loan and other costs. In 2010, the bankruptcy court converted the bankruptcy filing to chapter 7 and ordered the liquidation of the South Texas company. It is unlikely our company will recover any of its investment.
