Financial report summary

  • A substantial or extended decline in oil and natural gas prices may adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations and our ability to meet our capital expenditure obligations and financial commitments.
  • Our revenues are concentrated in three assets and related declines in production or other events beyond our control could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and financial results.
  • Operating results from oil and natural gas production may decline; we may be unable to acquire and develop the additional oil and natural gas reserves that are required in order to sustain our business operations.
  • We have limited control over the activities on properties we do not operate.
  • We are materially dependent upon our operators with respect to the successful operation of our principal assets, which consist of our interests in Delhi field, Hamilton Dome field, and the Barnett Shale. A materially negative change in any of our operator’s financial condition could negatively affect operations (or timing thereof) in these assets, and consequently our income (or timing thereof) from these assets as well as the value of our interests in these assets.
  • The types of resources we focus on have substantial operational risks.
  • Oil and natural gas development, re-completion of wells from one reservoir to another reservoir, restoring wells to production, and drilling and completing new wells are speculative activities which involve numerous risks and substantial uncertain costs.
  • The loss of a large single purchaser of our oil and natural gas could reduce the competition of our production.
  • Our oil and natural gas reserves are only estimates and may prove to be inaccurate.
  • Regulatory and accounting requirements may require substantial reductions in reporting proven reserves.
  • Our derivative activities could result in financial losses or could reduce our income.
  • We may have difficulty managing future growth and the related demands on our resources and may have difficulty in achieving future growth.
  • Our operations may require significant amounts of capital and additional financing may be necessary in order for us to continue our exploitation activities.
  • Government regulation and liability for oil and natural gas operations and environmental matters may adversely affect our business and results of operations.
  • Our business could be negatively affected by security threats. A cyber-attack or similar incident could occur and result in information theft, data corruption, operational disruption, damage to our reputation, and/or financial loss.
  • Our insurance may not protect us against all of the operating risks to which our business is exposed.
  • The loss of key personnel could adversely affect us.
  • Oil field service and materials prices may increase, and the availability of such services and materials may be inadequate to meet our needs.
  • We cannot market the oil and natural gas that we produce without the assistance of third-parties.
  • We face strong competition from larger oil and gas companies.
  • We have been, and in the future may become, involved in legal proceedings related to our properties or operations and, as a result, may incur substantial costs in connection with those proceedings.
  • Ownership of our oil, gas, and mineral production depends on good title to our property.
  • Events outside of our control, including a pandemic or broad outbreak of an infectious disease, such as the ongoing global outbreak of a novel strain of the coronavirus identified in late 2019 (“COVID-19”) and subsequent variants, may materially adversely affect our business.
  • Poor general economic, business, or industry conditions may have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, liquidity, and financial condition.
  • Our stock price has been and may continue to be volatile.
  • Significant ownership of our common stock is concentrated in a small number of shareholders who may be able to affect the outcome of the election of our directors and all other matters submitted to our stockholders for approval.
  • The market for our common stock is limited and may not provide adequate liquidity.
  • If securities or industry analysts do not publish research reports about our business, or if they downgrade our stock, the price of our common stock could decline.
  • The issuance of additional common stock and preferred stock could dilute existing stockholders.
  • Payment of dividends on our common stock has been in the past, and could be in the future, reduced or eliminated.
Management Discussion
  • Compared to the corresponding year-ago quarter, current quarter revenues increased 236.4% primarily due to an increase in production and an overall increase in average realized prices for our production. Total production increased due to volumes received from our Williston Basin Acquisition in January 2022 and the acquisition of our Barnett Shale properties in May 2021. Oil and natural gas prices are inherently volatile and began to stabilize in 2021 and continuing into 2022. Our average realized oil price and average realized NGL price increased primarily due to the recovery of West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") pricing in 2022, as the demand for oil has begun to recover as a result of the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, lessening of pandemic related government restrictions on individuals and businesses and sanctions affecting Russian oil and natural gas supplies.
