Production is expected to begin in August after the necessary pipeline and production facilities are constructed. Production history is needed before the Company can make an informed estimate of these wells' ultimate production and reserves. The Company owns 100% of the working interest in both wells.

The Company is continuing drilling operations of the second well on its Fleur prospect in Plaquemines Parish, the State Lease 17376 #1, to test several sands in the middle Miocene formation at vertical depths ranging from 13,100 feet to 14,900 feet. The Company has set pipe at a measured depth of 13,920 feet, and is currently drilling to total depth. The Company has logged 30 feet of net pay in its first objective and will test two more potential objectives as indicated from the Fleur #1. The Company owns a 75% working interest in this well and has incurred drilling costs to date totaling approximately $2.1 million, net to its interest. Drilling operations should be completed during the third quarter of 2004.

Mississippi

The Company reached total depth of 16,700 feet on its Weyerhaeuser #1, an exploratory well in Webster County. Mechanical problems encountered while preparing the well to log the Stones River formation resulted in the loss of a portion of the well bore below 11,190 feet. The well had gas shows with indicated porosity in the Stones River formation but the Company was unable to log and evaluate the well. The Company is sidetracking the well and will redrill approximately 5,400 feet of hole to penetrate the target formation. This operation is expected to take approximately 60 days to complete. The Company owns 100% of the working interest in this well and has incurred drilling costs to date totaling approximately $6.1 million.
