Jeffrey R. Bailey, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said "As we had expected the recently drilled Albers B #1 well completed on June 1, 2010 has had excellent results and since June 1 has been producing an average of 113 barrels of oil per day and no water.  This single well has increased our daily production of oil in Kansas by almost 20%, from about 600 barrels per day to over 700 barrels per day.  This well expands the potential size of our Trego County Albers discovery field to the east, and adds significant additional reserves to the Company's totals.  We continue to focus on this area as a key future core area, and additional developmental and exploratory drilling will occur along the new discovery trend."
