Recent Events

As previously disclosed, during the third week in February and through the second week in March, approximately 1,515 Bbls/d and 1.7 MMcf/d of our Red Lake field production was entirely shut-in due to a compression system upgrade at the gas plant that processes natural gas for our Red Lake field. The upgrade was initially expected to last 7 days, but experienced delays and took 21 days to complete. We are currently producing approximately 1,900 Boe/d from the Red Lake field, which is approximately 105% of pre-curtailment daily production volumes.
