During the nine months ended September 30, 2013 there were higher workover expenses of $3.7 million associated with the one major workover performed in 2013, higher fuel costs of $0.8 million and higher costs of $0.6 million associated with the change in oil inventory in the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the change in oil inventory in the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Partially offsetting these increases during the year were lower repairs and maintenance expense of $2.5 million related to vessel support services, contract services of $0.8 million, and other lease operating expenses of $1.3 million.

Nine-month 2013 G&A expenses excluding stock-based compensation decreased 20% to $15.9 million from $19.8 million for the same period in 2012.  The $3.9 million decrease is due lower third party costs related to the 2012 Block Z-1 transaction of $1.1 million, lower salary and related costs of $1.0 million, lower non-income taxes of $1.0 million and lower other expenses of $0.8 million.
