Hargett continues, “While 2011 was an eventful year with significant operational and organizational challenges, we firmly believe that High Plains Gas has successfully navigated these rough waters and is poised for sustained growth and success in 2012 and beyond. As previously stated, our management team has every intention of growing High Plains Gas, Inc. into a regional leader in the energy construction and field maintenance services. Unaudited expected revenue from Miller Fabrication alone is expected to be over $6 million in the first quarter of 2012 as we shift focus and aim to win bids on progressively larger projects.”“We are optimistic that the future of High Plains Gas is bright. Moving forward in 2012, our multipronged mission remains unchanged – strengthening our balance sheet, accelerating sustainable growth, fostering a corporate culture of transparency and integrity, and excellence in service. I strongly believe that over the long run, this strategy will translate into significant shareholder value.” High Plains Gas Inc. is a provider of goods and services to regional end markets serving the energy industry. We provide construction and field maintenance services primarily to the energy and energy related industries mainly located in Wyoming and North Dakota through our subsidiaries Miller Fabrication LLC, and HPG Services. We produce natural gas from the Powder River Basin located in Northeast Wyoming through our subsidiary High Plains Gas, LLC.
