PTOG Commentary: "We are excited having acquired this initial 80 acre project
with another 480 acres targeted on the area. We expect immediate results on
the reworked wells. We also plan to test an opportunity in the Mississippi
and Woodford zones. These well could initial flow 50 to 60 barrels a day with
at least 6 drilling locations spotted on our lease. We estimate the minimum
oil produced from existing wells to be 20 barrels a day with another 300mcf of
gas a day. We continue to look for undervalued opportunities to increase
