Historical Information Regarding Oil and Gas Interests

The program also includes the right but not the obligation to drill four more wells in the future. The acquired leases and the property to which they relate are identified below:

A mineral interest is the ownership of rights to gas, oil, or other minerals as they naturally occur in place, at or below the surface of a tract of land. Ownership of the minerals carries with it the right to make such reasonable use of the surface as may be necessary to explore for and produce the minerals. Only the mineral owner (or fee owner) may execute an oil or gas lease conveying his interest in a tract of land. Severance: The owner of all rights to a tract of land (vertically or horizontally). In horizontal severance, for example, if he chooses to sell all or part of the mineral rights, two distinct estates are created: the surface rights to the tract of land and the mineral rights to the same tract. The two estates may change hands independently of each other. Severed minerals rights may be restricted as to mineral type, or limited by depth, (in which case the landowner retains the rights to minerals other than those severed, and to depth intervals other than those severed.)

 

The Company attempts to maintain all of its operating wells in good working condition. Whitt Oil and Gas, Inc. (Whitt) a Texas corporation, and licensed operator, is familiar with the oil and gas business in the area. Whitt will operate the Company’s interests in the properties overseeing production and maintenance activities for its oil wells, equipment and other development activities for the leases.
