The Company has elected to defer the start-up of the majority of new Q2 and Q3 2016 wells until the fourth quarter to avoid selling high-rate, initial flush production into a particularly weak natural gas price environment as the Company is expecting stronger natural gas prices in late 2016 and in 2017.

Their share of the world production of conventional oil was 38% in 1973 at the time of the first "oil shock," but tell to 18% in 1985 because prolific new finds in Alaska, the North Sea, Africa, and elsewhere were delivering flush production from their giant fields that are commonly discovered early in the exploration process.

Hopefully this will exceed the aggregate 1,500 bopd barrels of oil per day reported on shut-in in 2006 by previous operator Shell, given initial flush production. We had expected that first production would commence in January so this announcement looks to be more or less in line with our thoughts.'
