This decrease was primarily due to net gain of $3,650,000 on sale of our investment in shares of Jerusalem Oil Exploration Ltd, ("JOEL") a related party in 2012, lower crude oil and NGLs sales revenues as a result of the decrease in crude oil and NGLs prices and oil production volumes which were partially offset by increase in revenues from well service activities, and net loss on derivative contracts recorded in 2012.
