Texas and Oklahoma

As of March 31, 2008, Westlands Resources has interests in 26 vertical and horizontal wells that produce from the Austin Chalk formation in east Texas. Westlands Resources operates 25 of the Texas wells.

The Austin Chalk is a naturally fractured, chalky limestone of Cretaceous age. In the mid to late 1980's, many horizontal drilling techniques were developed and perfected in this trend. Now, these techniques are being utilized throughout the world. The company has drilled several successful horizontal wells in the Austin Chalk. The fractured nature of the Austin Chalk lends itself to horizontal drilling because the horizontal well can intersect many fractures in the producing section of the formation, which in most of the wells in Burleson County is between 8,000' and 9,000'.

Westlands Resources has several proved undeveloped locations in the Austin Chalk. These development wells would be drilled as horizontal wells offsetting existing wells.

Appalachian Basin

As of March 31, 2008, DRI Operating Company operates and/or has interests in six wells in the States of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Four of the wells, two in West Virginia and two in Pennsylvania, are producing from the Lower Devonian-aged Oriskany Sandstone at depths between 8,000' and 9,000'. The remaining two wells are located in Pennsylvania and produce from the Balltown formation at a depth of approximately 3,550'.


Deven Resources, Inc. ("DRI") is the general partner of Deerlick Creek Royalty Partners, a limited partnership, owning overriding royalty interests in wells located within the Deerlick Coalbed Methane Field near Tuscaloosa Alabama. Coal bed methane (CBM) is simply occluded methane found in coal seams. Methane (CH4) is usually the primary component of natural gas. CBM is produced by non-traditional production methods, but it is sold and used the same as traditional natural gas.

Throughout its history, DRI has owned and/or operated coalbed methane wells in Alabama and Pennsylvania.
