A total of 40 oil wells are planned for the second half of 2011, of which 14 wells have been drilled thus far with a 100% success rate and an additional four wells planned prior to the end of the third quarter.

Of the 14 wells drilled, 10 are on production and are performing, on average, better than our forecasted rates.
