Respect to the CapEx program, during the first quarter we spent $8.2 million, which compares to $3.5 million that we spent in the first quarter of 2011.

The remaining $4.5 million or 55% of the total capital spent was related to our non-operated properties. $2.5 million of those funds were spent on drilling in the Bakken, Cleveland, and Rock Springs wells, and $1.3 million on projects related to our Gold Coast acquisition, which we completed in 2011. The balance of the spending was on water floods in the Permian basin and other miscellaneous work.
