          Company                                                   Summary

Amemdment to question and answer #4 for Conference  Call Summary dated April 22,

4.   Farm-in acreage at South Overton.  Richard, you mentioned the one well that
you drilled there. With the size of the acreage, how many wells will you have to
put down on that area to outline it and start feeling this is as low risk as the
other Overton areas that you've successfully drilled?

Lane:  Well,  you'll  recall we did  drill one there  last year as well that was
successful. One of the first quarter wells, as you said, was on that acreage, so
we now have two good  wells on that  acreage.  We have  farmed-in  approximately
5,800 acres at South Overton. In terms of how many wells it will take to get the
same  kind  of  comfort  level  we have  to the  north  there  in  Overton,  the
circumstances  are  similar to what they were when we started on Overton in that
each  unit was a 640 acre  unit and  already  had a well in it.  So if you think
about it, it's sampled  consistently  across the acreage. So I think we're close
to being there now in terms of our level of  confidence  in the  southern  area.
We'll do probably two to three more wells on that acreage during 2002.
