For fiscal year 2011, our capital expenditure budget calls for us to invest approximately $60 million to drill up to four wildcat exploration wells in the Gulf of Mexico, at an estimated dry hole cost of approximately $15 million each, net to Contango, subject to permitting approval by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (previously the Minerals Management Service). We also plan to invest approximately $22.5 million to drill and complete 15 additional onshore wells in Panola County, Texas under our joint venture with Patara Oil & Gas.

Our production is currently 105 Mmcfed, net to Contango. As of September 1, 2010, we had no debt and approximately $45.5 million in cash and cash equivalents.
