NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2013
(Stated in U.S. Dollars)

1.            BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
The unaudited consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2013 included herein have been prepared without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  It is suggested that these consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2012 audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto.  The results of the operations for the three months ended March 31, 2013 are not indicative of the results that may be expected for the year.

2.            OPERATIONS

a)    Organization

Delta Oil & Gas, Inc. (“the Company”) was incorporated as a Colorado corporation on January 9, 2001.

The Company is an independent natural gas and oil company engaged in the exploration, development, and acquisition of natural gas and oil properties in the United States and Canada.  The Company’s entry into the natural gas and oil business began on February 8, 2001.

Natural gas and oil exploration and production is a speculative business, and involves a high degree of risk.  Among the factors that have a direct bearing on the Company’s prospects are uncertainties inherent in estimating  natural gas and oil reserves, future hydrocarbon production, and cash flows, particularly with respect to wells that have not been fully tested and with wells having limited production histories; access to additional capital; changes in the price of natural gas and oil; availability and cost of services and equipment; and the presence of competitors with greater financial resources and capacity.

The oil and gas industry is subject, by its nature, to environmental hazards and clean-up costs.  At this time, management knows of no substantial costs from environmental accidents or events for which the Company may be currently liable.  In addition, the Company’s oil and gas business makes it vulnerable to changes in prices of crude oil and natural gas.  Such prices have been volatile in the past and can be expected to be volatile in the future.  By definition, proved reserves are based on current oil and gas prices and estimated probable reserves.  Price declines reduce the estimated quantity of proved and probable reserves and increase annual depletion expense (which is based on proved and probable reserves).

b)    Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.

As shown in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred a net loss of $6,108,039 since inception.  To achieve profitable operations, the Company requires additional capital for obtaining producing oil and gas properties through either the purchase of producing wells or successful exploration activity.  Management believes that sufficient funding will be available to meet its business objectives including anticipated cash needs for working capital and is currently evaluating several financing options.  However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain sufficient funds to continue the development of its properties and, if successful, to commence the sale of its projects under development.  As a result of the foregoing, there exists substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2013
(Stated in U.S. Dollars)


3.             SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

a)     Basis of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and include the financial statements of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Delta Oil & Gas (Canada) Inc.  All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated.

b)     Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  Significant estimates with regard to these financial statements include the estimate of proved natural gas and oil reserve quantities and the related present value of estimated future net cash flows there from.
 
c)     Natural Gas and Oil Properties

The Company accounts for its oil and gas producing activities using the full cost method of accounting as prescribed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  Accordingly, all costs associated with the acquisition of properties and exploration with the intent of finding proved oil and gas reserves contribute to the discovery of proved reserves, including the costs of abandoned properties, dry holes, geophysical costs, and annual lease rentals are capitalized.  All general corporate costs are expensed as incurred.  In general, sales or other dispositions of oil and gas properties are accounted for as adjustments to capitalized costs, with no gain or loss recorded.  Amortization of evaluated oil and gas properties is computed on the units of production method based on all proved reserves on a country-by-country basis.  The net capitalized costs of evaluated oil and gas properties (full cost ceiling limitation) are not to exceed their related estimated future net revenues from proved reserves discounted at 10%, and the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties, net of tax considerations.  These properties are included in the amortization pool immediately upon the determination that the well is dry.

Unproved properties consist of lease acquisition costs and costs on wells currently being drilled on the properties.  The recorded costs of the investment in unproved properties are not amortized until proved reserves associated with the projects can be determined or until they are impaired.  Unevaluated oil and gas properties are assessed at least annually for impairment either individually or on an aggregate basis.

d)     Asset Retirement Obligations

The Company has adopted “Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations” of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, which requires that asset retirement obligations (“ARO”) associated with the retirement of a tangible long-lived asset, including natural gas and oil properties, be recognized as liabilities in the period in which it is incurred and becomes determinable, with an offsetting increase in the carrying amount of the associated assets. The cost of tangible long-lived assets, including the initially recognized ARO, is depleted, such that the cost of the ARO is recognized over the useful life of the assets. The ARO is recorded at fair value, and accretion expense is recognized over time as the discounted cash flows are accreted to the expected settlement value. The fair value of the ARO is measured using expected future cash flow discounted at the Company’s credit-adjusted risk-free interest rate.

e)     Oil and Gas Joint Ventures

All exploration and production activities are conducted jointly with others and, accordingly, the accounts reflect only the Company’s proportionate interest in such activities.

3.             SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

f)     Revenue Recognition

Revenue from sales of crude oil, natural gas and refined petroleum products are recorded when deliveries have occurred and legal ownership of the commodity transfers to the customers.  Title transfers for crude oil, natural gas and bulk refined products generally occur at pipeline custody points or when a tanker lifting has occurred.  Revenues from the production of oil and natural gas properties in which the Company shares an undivided interest with other producers are recognized based on the actual volumes sold by the Company during the period.  Gas imbalances occur when the Company’s actual sales differ from its entitlement under existing working interests.  The Company records a liability for gas imbalances when it has sold more than its working interest of gas production and the estimated remaining reserves make it doubtful that the partners can recoup their share of production from the field.  As at March 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company had no overproduced imbalances.

g)     Cash and Cash Equivalent

Cash consists of cash on deposit with high quality major financial institutions, and to date, the Company has not experienced losses on any of its balances.  The carrying amounts approximated fair market value due to the liquidity of these deposits.  For purposes of the balance sheet and statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.

h)    Restricted Cash

Restricted cash consists of funds deposited in a trust account for the Texas Prospect, which can only be used for drilling and completion costs associated with the first and second well that is being drilled at this location.

i)     Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable.  The Company maintains cash at two financial institutions.  The Company periodically evaluates the credit worthiness of financial institutions, and maintains cash accounts only in large high quality financial institutions, thereby minimizing exposure for deposits in excess of federally insured amounts.  The Company believes credit risk associated with cash and cash equivalents to be minimal.

The Company has recorded trade accounts receivable from the business operations. Management periodically evaluates the collectability of the trade receivables and believes that the Company’s receivables are fully collectable and that the risk of loss is minimal.

j)      Environmental Protection and Reclamation Costs

The operations of the Company have been, and may in the future be affected from time to time in varying degrees by changes in environmental regulations, including those for future removal and site restorations costs.  Both the likelihood of new regulations and their overall effect upon the Company may vary from region to region and are not predictable.

The Company’s policy is to meet or, if possible, surpass standards set by relevant legislation, by application of technically proven and economically feasible measures.  Environmental expenditures that relate to ongoing environmental and reclamation programs will be charged against statements of operations as incurred or capitalized and amortized depending upon their future economic benefits.  The Company does not currently anticipate any material capital expenditures for environmental control facilities because all property holdings are at early stages of exploration.  Therefore, estimated future removal and site restoration costs are presently considered minimal.

3.             SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

k)     Foreign Currency Translation

United States funds are considered the Company’s functional currency.  Transaction amounts denominated in foreign currencies are translated into their United States dollar equivalents at exchange rates prevailing at the transaction date.  Monetary assets and liabilities are adjusted at each balance sheet date to reflect exchange rates prevailing at that date, and non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at the historical rate of exchange.  Gains and losses arising from restatement of foreign currency monetary assets and liabilities at each year-end are included in other comprehensive income/(loss).

l)     Other Equipment

Computer equipment is stated at cost.  Provision for depreciation on computer equipment is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of three years.

m)     Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

In the event that facts and circumstances indicate that the costs of long-lived assets, other than oil and gas properties, may be impaired, and evaluation of recoverability would be performed.  If an evaluation is required, the estimated future undiscounted cash flows associated with the asset would be compared to the asset’s carrying amount to determine if a write-down to market value or discounted cash flow value is required.  Impairment of oil and gas properties is evaluated subject to the full cost ceiling as described under Natural Oil and Gas Properties.

n)     Income/Loss Per Share  

As required by the “Earnings Per Share” Topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, basic and diluted earnings per share are to be presented.  Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding in the year.  Diluted earnings per share takes into consideration common shares outstanding (computed under basic earnings per share) and potentially dilutive common shares.

As the company is reporting net loss in both years, the conversion of options for the calculation of diluted earnings per share would be considered anti-dilutive.  The table below presents the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012:

Basic and Diluted loss per share
  $  (0.01 )   $  (0.01 )

o)     Income Taxes

The Company follows the liability method of accounting for income taxes under which deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences of (i) temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities, and their reported amounts in the financial statements, and (ii) operating loss and tax credit carry forwards for tax purposes.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, based upon management’s estimates, it is more likely than not that a portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized in a future period.

3.             SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

p)     Financial Instruments

The FASB Accounting Standards Codification Financial Instruments requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The standard prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1

Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2

Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

Level 3

Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalent, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued liabilities and project cost advance received.

It is management’s opinion that the Company is not exposed to significant interest or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.  The fair value of these financial instruments is approximate to their carrying values.

q)    Comprehensive Loss

Reporting Comprehensive Income Topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the financial statements. The Company is disclosing this information on its Consolidated Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Income.
 
r)     Stock-Based Compensation

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with Share-Based Payments of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense based on estimated fair values for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including stock options.
 
Shared Based Payments requires companies to estimate the fair value of share-based awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model as its method of determining fair value. This model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables. These subjective variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense in the statement of operations over the requisite service period.

  ii.  Premont Northwest Field, USA

On August 20, 2012, the Company acquired its 10% working interest in the Garcia #3 and the continuing development rights in the field with an agreement with Progas Energy Services LLC, a Texas Oil & Gas Company (“Progas”) to jointly develop, the field located in Jim Wells County, Texas, known as the Premont Northwest Field.  The Company acquired these interests through the issuance to Progas of 236,134 common shares valued at $35,420 and its pro-rata share of drilling costs, which amount $49,460.  The Company has also paid its pro-rata share of $42,000 for two re-completions.

5.             NATURAL GAS AND OIL EXPLORATION RISK

a)     Exploration Risk

The Company’s future financial condition and results of operations will depend upon prices received for its natural gas and oil production and the cost of finding, acquiring, developing and producing reserves.  Substantially all of its production is sold under various terms and arrangements at prevailing market prices.  Prices for natural gas and oil are subject to fluctuations in response to changes in supply, market uncertainty and a variety of other factors beyond its control.  Other factors that have a direct bearing on the Company’s prospects are uncertainties inherent in estimating natural gas and oil reserves and future hydrocarbon production and cash flows, particularly with respect to wells that have not been fully tested and with wells having limited production histories; access to additional capital; changes in the price of natural gas and oil; availability and cost of services and equipment; and the presence of competitors with greater financial resources and capacity.

5.            NATURAL GAS AND OIL EXPLORATION RISK (continued)

b)    Distribution Risk

The Company is dependent on the operator to market any oil production from its wells and any subsequent production which may be received from other wells which may be successfully drilled on the Prospect.  It relies on the operator’s ability and expertise in the industry to successfully market the same.  Prices at which the operator sells gas/oil both in intrastate and interstate commerce will be subject to the availability of pipe lines, demand and other factors beyond the control of the operator.  The Company and the operator believe any oil produced can be readily sold to a number of buyers.

c)    Credit Risk

A substantial portion of the Company’s accounts receivable is with joint venture partners in the oil and gas industry and is subject to normal industry credit risks.

d)    Foreign Operations Risk

The Company is exposed to foreign currency fluctuations, political risks, price controls and varying forms of fiscal regimes or changes thereto which may impair its ability to conduct profitable operations as it operates internationally and holds foreign denominated cash and other assets.

6.             CURRENT LIABILITIES

The Company received $12,547 as of March 31, 2013 (December 31, 2012 - $12,547) from Hillcrest Resources Ltd., as its share in the Texas project.  The Company will expend these funds for drilling future exploration wells.

7.             ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATIONS

The Company follows the Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations Topic of the FASB Accounting standards Codification.  This addresses financial accounting and reporting for obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets and the associated asset retirement costs.  It also requires recognition of the present value of obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets in the period in which it is incurred.  As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the Company recognized the future cost to plug and abandon the gas wells over the estimated useful lives of the wells in accordance with Asset retirement Obligations of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification.  The liability for the fair value of an asset retirement obligation with a corresponding increase in the carrying value of the related long-lived asset is recorded at the time a well is completed and ready for production.  The Company amortizes the amount added to the oil and gas properties and recognizes accretion expense in connection with the discounted liability over the remaining life of the respective well.  The estimated liability is based on historical experience in plugging and abandoning wells, estimated useful lives based on engineering studies, external estimates as to the cost to plug and abandon wells in the future and federal and state regulatory requirements.  The liability is a discounted liability using a credit-adjusted risk-free rate of 12%.

Revisions to the liability could occur due to changes in plugging and abandonment costs, well useful lives or if federal or state regulators enact new guidance on the plugging and abandonment of wells.

The Company amortizes the amount added to oil and gas properties and recognizes accretion expense in connection with the discounted liability over the remaining useful lives of the respective well.

11.           CONTINGENCIES

In September 2010, two lawsuits were filed in the District Court of Garvin County in the State of Oklahoma by Harold Hamm (“Hamm”) against certain defendants (“Defendants”) and consolidated together alleging, among other things, that Hamm owns an interest in two oil and gas leases in Garvin County and is entitled to a 50% participatory interest.  We were not named as a party in these legal proceedings, but Hamm’s allegations include that he is entitled to a 50% participatory interest in the Joe Murray Farms well drilled as part of the 2009-3 Drilling Program, which we purchased a 6.25% working interest before casing point and 5.0% working interest after casing point.  The Defendants and the Company believe that there is no merit to Hamm’s allegations.  In connection with these proceedings, the Defendants were ordered in January 2011 to escrow fifty percent (50%) of the revenues generated within the subject area pending the outcome of these proceedings.  For this reason, fifty percent (50%) of the revenues we are entitled to that have been generated by production from the Joe Murray Farms well is being escrowed and there is no assurance that we will be able to recover these proceeds.  As of March 31, 2013, we recognized $155,775 in revenue from the Joe Murray Farms well and $155,775 has not been recognized as revenue and is being escrowed pending the outcome of these proceedings.

Business of Delta Oil
 
We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado on January 9, 2001 under the name Delta Oil & Gas, Inc.
 
We are engaged in the acquisition, development and production of oil and natural gas properties in North America.  We seek to acquire and develop properties with undeveloped reserves that are economically attractive to us.  We will employ expertise in geological and geophysical areas to mitigate, as far as possible, the inherent risk of oil and gas exploration.  We seek to create value and reduce risks through the acquisition and development of property interests in areas that:
 
·  
have significant undeveloped reserves;
 
·  
are in close proximity to developed markets for oil and natural gas;
 
·  
have existing infrastructure or the ability to install our own infrastructure of oil and natural gas; and pipelines and production platforms.
 
During the first and second quarters of 2010, management engaged in a detailed strategic review of all of our development lands, exploratory lands and working interest partners held at that time.  The outcome of these reviews lead to an internal declaration of core and non-core properties. Those properties within the “Core” were to receive priority focus for development and expansion and those in the “Non-Core” grouping were to be considered as low priority for development and considered for divestment should offers fall within range of what management believes are their true values.
 
Historically, we have taken small working interest positions in multiple and diverse projects.  Under our new Core / Non-Core strategy, we will generally focus on larger working interest relationships in substantive project areas and move to strategically explore and develop those projects.  We believe that this core strategy will enable us to develop Delta Oil and Gas to the next level in its growth towards becoming a more significant oil and natural gas producing entity.
 
Our current focus is on the exploration of our Core land portfolio comprised of working interests in acreage in King City, California and Eastern Texas.  
 
Our producing interests in South Central, Oklahoma contribute strong cash flow, but because our working interests fall below management’s threshold for participating working interest percentages and with little or no opportunity to increase these percentages, this portfolio of lands has been designated as Non-Core.
 
CORE PROPERTIES
 
Texas Prospect
 
On July 15, 2009, we entered into an assignment agreement with Mr. Barry Lasker (the “Assignor”) and were assigned all of Assignor’s rights and obligations under two oil, gas and liquid hydrocarbon lease agreements, each dated March 26, 2009 (the “Leases”) covering an aggregate area of approximately 243 acres in Newton County, Texas (the “Texas Prospect”).  These Leases provide us with the ability to drill up to 3 exploration wells.  
 
Following our disposition of a 60% interest in the Leases to Hillcrest Resources Ltd. (‘Hillcrest”) in December 2009, we are responsible for 40% of all costs allocated to the Leases, drilling and completion of up to 3 exploration wells. We have drilled and completed the first two exploration holes.  Once the 3 exploration wells are drilled, completed and production commences, if at all, we will receive a percentage distribution of net revenue, after deduction of all applicable expenses and royalties, according to the following table:
 
 
 
 

 

 

 
 
Net Revenue Distribution
 
Before Payout
After Payout
     
Well #1
36%
20%
Well #2
32%
18%
Well #3
32%
18%

 
Under the terms of the Leases, we have the ability to participate in additional wells drilled in the Texas Prospect.  In the event that we elect to participate, we will negotiate with Hillcrest our respective levels of participation in additional wells.  Our percentage of the costs and net revenue distribution, both before and after payout, associated with each additional well will be proportional to our level of participation.
 
We paid our proportionate share of the drilling and completion costs during the quarter ended June 30, 2010.  On June 4, 2010, the first well (the “Donner #1”) was successfully drilled and encountered hydrocarbons.  The Donner #1 was completed and went into production during the quarter ended September 30, 2010.  On August 4, 2011, we successfully drilled and completed the second well (the “Donner #2”).  The following represents the revenue from the drilling program:

  $ 61,135     $ 58,913  
Donner #2
  $ 35,482     $ 8,883  

 
The increase in revenue for Donner #1 was caused by an increase in commodity prices for oil.  The increase in revenues for Donner #2 was due to the well, being in production for the entire quarter as opposed to a partial quarter for the corresponding period.
 
Premont Northwest Field, USA

On August 20, 2012, the Company acquired its 10% working interest in the Garcia #3 and the continuing development rights in the field with an agreement with Progas Energy Services LLC, a Texas oil & gas company (“Progas”) to jointly develop the field located in Jim Wells County, Texas, known as the Premont Northwest Field.  The Company acquired these interests through the issuance to Progas of 236,134 common shares at an initial cost of $0.15 per share and its pro-rata share of drilling costs, which was $49,460.  The Company has also paid its pro-rata share of $42,000 for two re-completions.
 
The Company is evaluating the first three wells to determine the economic potential of the field.
 
 
 
 
 



 
 
King City, California
 
On May 25, 2009, we entered into a farm-out agreement with Sunset Exploration (“Sunset”), a California corporation, to participate in the drilling and exploration of lands located in Monterey County, California.  The prospect area where the drilling and exploration will take place is comprised of approximately 10,000 acres.  We are obligated to pay 66.67% of the costs of the initial test well up to casing point, in order to earn a 40.0% working interest.  Thereafter, we will be obligated to pay 40.0% of the costs of any future wells which we elect to participate in order to earn a 40.0% working interest.  We paid Sunset $100,000 as an advance towards the permitting and processing of lands and the costs of a gravity survey and a 2D seismic program.  
 
We completed a gravity survey and 2D seismic program in 2010 and extensively reviewed the data provided from the program.  The first exploration well was drilled in November 2011 at a cost of $608,084.  The logs indicated potential pay zones and we completed a test well with a view toward full production if the tests indicate an economic potential, which cannot be assured.  During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, testing results indicated that there were no economic hydrocarbons, hence the well was abandoned.  Total costs of $363,231 were moved to the proven cost pool for depletion.

2009-3 Drilling Program - 4 Wells
 
On August 7, 2009, we entered into an agreement with Ranken Energy to participate in a four well drilling program in Garvin County, Oklahoma (the “2009-3 Drilling Program”).  We purchased a 6.25% working interest before casing point and 5.0% working interest after casing point in the 2009-3 Drilling Program for $37,775.  In addition to the total buy-in cost, we are responsible for our proportionate share of the drilling and completion costs.  The first well (the “Jackson #1-18”) started production during the quarter ending March 31, 2010, the second well (the “Miss Gracie #1-18”) started production during the quarter ending June 30, 2010 and the third well (“Joe Murray Farms”) started production during the quarter ended September 30, 2010.  On August 18, 2011, we plugged and abandoned Jackson #1-18 due to the well being uneconomic.  The following represents the revenues from this drilling program:
 
Well Name
 
Three months ended, March 31, 2013
   
Three months ended, March 31, 2012
 
             
Miss Gracie #1-18
  $ 10,047     $ 16,857  
Joe Murray Farms
  $ 4,150     $ 12,780  

 
The decrease in revenues for Miss Gracie #1-18 and Joe Murray Farms was due to a reduction in production for the period as compared to the corresponding prior year.  Due to ongoing legal proceedings potentially impacting the Joe Murray Farms well, the revenue reported from the Joe Murray Farms well for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2012 reflects fifty percent (50%) of the total revenues  generated from production and the remaining fifty percent (50%) is being escrowed pending the outcome of these proceedings and has not been recognized as revenue.  We have recognized an aggregate of $155,775 in revenue from the Joe Murray Farms well and $155,775 is the amount as of March 31, 2013 that is being escrowed pending the outcome of these proceedings and has not been recognized as revenue.
 
 
 
 
 



 
 
2009-1 Drilling Program - 5 Wells
 
On July 27, 2009, we entered into an agreement with Ranken Energy to participate in a five well drilling program in Garvin County, Oklahoma (the “2009-1 Drilling Program”).  We initially acquired a 5.0% working interest in the 2009-1 Drilling Program in exchange for our payment of a total of $13,125 in buy-in costs, which equates to $2,625 in buy-in costs for each well, plus our proportionate share of the drilling and completion costs.  During the fourth quarter of 2009, our working interest in the 2009-1 Drilling Program was reduced to 3.75%.  The reduction in our working interest was attributable to the land owner exercising an option to increase its working interest causing a proportional reduction to all working interests held in this drilling program.
 
We refer to the first three wells in this drilling program as Saddle #1-18, Saddle #2-18 and  Saddle #3-18.  These wells started to produce hydrocarbons during the quarter ending March 31, 2010.  Total revenue received from all three wells for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $2.241 (March 31, 2012: $2,485).
 
2007-1 Drilling Program - 3 Wells
 
On September 10, 2007, we entered into an agreement with Ranken Energy to participate in a four well drilling program in Garvin County, Oklahoma (the “2007-1 Drilling Program”).  Drilling of the first and second wells (the “Pollock #1-35” and the “Hulsey #1”) was completed in the N.E. Anitoch Prospect and the Washington Creek Prospect respectively.  The Pollock #1-35 did not prove to be commercially viable.
 
Drilling of the third well in this drilling program (the “River #1”) was completed during the three months ended September 30, 2008.  River #1 is currently in production and the total revenue received for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $2,606 (March 31, 2012: $4,099), the decrease in revenue was caused by a reduction in production caused by a depletion in reserves.
 
Hulsey #1-8 started producing during the first quarter of 2008 and the total revenue received for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $18,632 (March 31, 2012: $10,440).  The increase in revenue for the three months was caused by an increase in production due to a work-over program that was completed in previous periods.
 
Hulsey #2-8 commenced production during the three months ended March 31, 2009 and produced $12,423 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 (March 31, 2012: $5,139).  The increase in revenue is due to an increase in production caused by a work-over program completed in previous periods.  Our proportionate costs associated with the Hulsey #2-8 well amounted to $139,674, which was moved to the proved properties cost pool for depletion.
 
2006-3 Drilling Program
 
On April 17, 2007, we entered into an agreement with Ranken Energy Corporation (“Ranken Energy”) to participate in a six well drilling program in Garvin and Murray counties in Oklahoma (the “2006-3 drilling Program”).  The leases secured and/or lands to be pooled for this drilling program total approximately 820 net acres. We agreed to take a 10% working interest in this program.
 
Three wells drilled (the “Wolf #1-7”, the “Loretta #1-22” and the “Ruggles #1-15”) were deemed by the operator to not be commercially viable and as such, were plugged and abandoned in September 2007. 
 
 
 
 



 
 
 
 
Three other wells drilled (the “Elizabeth #1-25”, the “Plaster #1-1” and the “Dale #1 re-entry”) were deemed by the operator to be commercially viable and production casing was set in each.   The Plaster #1 encountered hydrocarbon showings and produced natural gas commencing in January, 2008, but was sold in the second quarter of 2011 for net proceeds of $7,603.  The Elizabeth #1-25 has been plugged and abandoned as of February 7, 2008.  
 
For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 and 2011
 
Revenues
 
We generated total revenue of $146,711 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, an increase of 16% from revenues of $126,718 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  The increase in revenues from natural gas and oil sales was due to an increase in production from the wells located in Texas and Oklahoma, when compared to the corresponding period last year.
 
Costs and Expenses

We incurred costs and expenses in the amount of $301,387 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a 30% increase from costs and expenses of $231,007 for three months ended March 31, 2012.  The significant increase in costs was primarily attributable to depletion and depreciation charges and stock based compensation costs.
 
 Other changes in our costs and expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2013, when compared the three months ended March 31, 2012, are described below:
 
·  
Natural gas and oil operating costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased to $23,489 from $34,056 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a decrease of 31%.  The decrease in natural gas and oil operating costs was caused by the reduction maintenance costs during the period when compared to the corresponding year.
 
·  
General and administrative costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 increased to $209,969 from $170,688 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of 23%.  The increase was primarily caused by an increase in stock based compensation of $62,626, when compared to the previous period in the corresponding year.  Legal and professional expenses increased to $19,933 for the three months ending Mach 31, 2013 compared to $6,009 for the three months ending March 31, 2012.  The increase was caused by the legal firm incurring additional time as a new member of the staff was introduced to the Company.
 
·  
Depreciation and depletion costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 increased to $67,086 from $25,766.  The increase was caused by the write-off of the costs associated with King City to the proved costs pool.  The costs associated with King City were written-off as it became apparent after extensive testing, that there would be no economic hydrocarbons recoverable from the project.  Under the Company’s accounting policy, costs related to unproved projects will be transferred to the proved cost pool for depletion.
 
Net Operating Loss
 
The net operating loss for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $154,676, compared to a net operating loss of $104,289 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, due to the factors described above.
 
 
 
 

 


 

 
Other Income and Expense
 
We reported other net income of $14 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to other net income of $36 the three months ended March 31, 2012.  Other income was attributable to interest received on bank deposits.  We also reported other expense of $440 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $nil for the three months ended March 2012.  Other expense was interest charged on a promissory note.
 
Comprehensive Loss for the period
 
As a result of the above, comprehensive loss for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $156,287, compared to a net loss of $102,428 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.
 
There are material events and uncertainties which could cause our reported financial information to not be indicative of future operating results or financial condition.  Our inability to successfully identify, execute or effectively integrate future acquisitions may negatively affect our results of operations.  The success of any acquisition depends on a number of factors beyond our control, including the ability to estimate accurately the recoverable volumes of reserves, rates of future production and future net revenues attainable from the reserves and to assess possible environmental liabilities.  Drilling for oil and natural gas may also involve unprofitable efforts, not only from dry wells but also from wells that are productive but do not produce sufficient net reserves to return a profit after deducting operating and other costs. In addition, wells that are profitable may not achieve our targeted rate of return.  Our ability to achieve our target results are also dependent upon the current and future market prices for crude oil and natural gas, costs associated with producing oil and natural gas and our ability to add reserves at an acceptable cost.  We do not operate the properties in which we have an interest and we have limited ability to exercise influence over operations for these properties or their associated costs.  Our dependence on the operator and other working interest owners for these projects and our limited ability to influence operations and associated costs could materially adversely affect the realization of our returns on capital in drilling or acquisition activities and our targeted production growth rate. As a result, our historical results may not be indicative of future operations.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2013, we had total current assets of $136,484 and total current liabilities in the amount of $65,244.  As a result, we had working capital of $71,240 as of March 31, 2013, compared to working capital of $98,379.  The reduction in working capital is directly attributable to the net operating loss incurred for the three months ending March 31, 2013.
 
The revenue we currently generate from natural gas and oil sales does not exceed our operating expenses.  Our management anticipates that the current cash on hand may not be sufficient to fund our continued operations at the current level for the next twelve months.  As such, we may require additional financing to fund our operations and proposed drilling activities for the year ended December 31, 2013.  We will also require additional funds to expand our acquisition, exploration and production of natural oil and gas properties.  We will require additional significant capital to fund the development of our existing proved undeveloped reserves and to effectively expand our operations through the acquisition and drilling of new prospects and to implement our overall business strategy.  We believe that debt financing will not be an alternative for funding as we have limited tangible assets to secure any debt financing.  We anticipate that additional funding will be in the form of equity financing from the sale of our common or preferred stock.  We intend to seek additional funding in the form of equity financing from the sale of our common or preferred stock, but cannot provide any assurance that we will be able to raise sufficient funding from the sale of our common preferred stock to fund our operations and acquisition of new prospects.  If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we will experience liquidity problems and management expects that we will need to curtail operations, liquidate assets, seek additional capital on less favorable terms and/or pursue other remedial measures.  Any additional equity financing may involve substantial dilution to our then existing shareholders.
 
Cash Generated/(Used) in Operating Activities
 
Operating activities generated $4,770 in cash for the three months March 31, 2013, compared to $148,206 cash used in operating activities for the three months March 31, 2012.  Our positive cash flow for the three months ending March 31, 2013 was caused by an increase in accounts receivable/payable.  Our accounts payable as of March 31, 2013 increased to $65,244, an increase of $18,254 from $46,990 as of December 31, 2012.
 
Cash Used in Investing Activities
 
Cash flows used in investing activities for the three months March 31, 2013 was $9,407, compared to $81,597 cash used in investing activities for the three months March 31, 2012.  All cash used in investment activities during the three months March 31, 2013 and 2012 related to investments in natural gas and oil working interests.
 
Cash from Financing Activities
 
The Company received $8,000 from the exercise of stock options for the three months ending March 31, 2013, compared to $nil for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet debt nor did we have any transactions, arrangements, obligations (including contingent obligations) or other relationships with any unconsolidated entities or other persons that may have material current or future effect on financial conditions, changes in the financial conditions, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, capital resources, or significant components of revenue or expenses.
 
Going Concern
 
As shown in the accompanying financial statements, we have incurred a cumulative net loss of $6,108,039 since inception.  To achieve profitable operations, we require additional capital for obtaining producing oil and gas properties through either the purchase of producing wells or successful exploration activity.  We believe that we will be able to obtain sufficient funding to meet our business objectives, including anticipated cash needs for working capital and are currently evaluating several financing options.  However, there can be no assurances offered in this regard.  As a result of the foregoing, there exists substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP.  For a full discussion of our accounting policies as required by GAAP, refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.  We consider certain accounting policies to be critical to an understanding of our condensed consolidated financial statements because their application requires significant judgment and reliance on estimations of matters that are inherently uncertain. The specific risks related to these critical accounting policies are unchanged at the date of this report and are described in detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of such period, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective in recording, processing, summarizing and reporting, on a timely basis, information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act.  This conclusion is based primarily on the material weakness in internal control over financial reporting which was disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, where management identified material weaknesses based on the size of our company and the fact that we have only one financial expert on our management team and no audit committee.

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls
 
Our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud and material error.  Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving our objectives and our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at that reasonable assurance level.  Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs.  Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected.  These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.  Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the internal control.  The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.  Over time, control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect such controls.
 

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
 
 
In September 2010, two lawsuits were filed in the District Court of Garvin County in the State of Oklahoma by Harold Hamm (“Hamm”) against certain defendants (“Defendants”) and consolidated together alleging, among other things, that Hamm owns an interest in two oil and gas leases in Garvin County and is entitled to a 50% participatory interest.  We were not named as a party in these legal proceedings, but Hamm’s allegations include that he is entitled to a 50% participatory interest in the Joe Murray Farms well drilled as part of the 2009-3 Drilling Program, which we purchased a 6.25% working interest before casing point and 5.0% working interest after casing point.  The Defendants and the Company believe that there is no merit to Hamm’s allegations.  In connection with these proceedings, the Defendants were ordered in January 2011 to escrow fifty percent (50%) of the revenues generated within the subject area pending the outcome of these proceedings.  For this reason, fifty percent (50%) of the revenues we are entitled to that have been generated by production from the Joe Murray Farms well is being escrowed and there is no assurance that we will be able to recover these proceeds.  As of March 31, 2013, we recognized $155,775 in revenue from the  Joe Murray Farms well and $155,775 has not been recognized as revenue and is being escrowed pending the outcome of these proceedings.
