“This quarterly report was delayed by the delayed filing of the recent year end, audited financial report. That report was, in turn, delayed by the significant increase in business activity which Aztec has experienced, plus the detailed reserve report on all wells which Aztec commissioned for use in its year end audited report,” stated Waylan Johnson, President of Aztec Oil Gas, Inc.
Mr. Johnson went on to state, “We are very pleased with the progress and results Aztec is achieving; and, also, with our continued recognition and acceptance by the Broker Dealer and Registered Investment Advisor communities. Our people deserve a great deal of recognition for doing a fine job in what is a very competitive and challenging market place.”
About Aztec Oil Gas, Inc.
Aztec is an experienced oil and gas exploration, development and production company focusing on Texas, plus other areas of the U.S. Its interests are highly diversified between development drilling and exploration drilling; however, when it offers drilling/production partnerships, Aztec focuses primarily on Texas shallow, lower risk, development and step out oil wells. When offered, those programs/partnerships are placed, with accredited investor partners, only through FINRA registered Broker Dealers and Registered Investment Advisors; and, are focused primarily on oil, with natural gas normally being the secondary target of production.
Aztec has been in the oil/gas business since 2004, and entered the sponsored drilling program industry in 2006. Over the next two and one half years, beginning in late 2006, Aztec intentionally restricted itself to only three small, very limited Appalachian, natural gas drilling partnerships. Such was done in order to study and become fully familiar with the nuances of the sponsored drilling program industry before expanding to the Company’s full capabilities. In the summer of 2008, Aztec publicly announced it was discontinuing any natural gas drilling in Appalachia, and was ready to substantially expand its sponsored drilling program activities, along with its other activities, primarily for oil in Texas.
As to only its sponsored drilling partnerships, when offered; since 2008, Aztec has, indeed, focused almost all of those partnerships on oil wells in Texas. In addition to its early, initial three small Appalachian natural gas drilling partnerships mentioned above, Aztec has, intermittently, sponsored and closed a significant number of other drilling/production partnerships (all of the latter, as stated, focused primarily on drilling for oil in Texas). Aztec Energy LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aztec Oil Gas Inc., is the Managing General Partner of all Aztec drilling partnerships; and another wholly-owned Aztec Oil Gas Inc. subsidiary, Aztec Drilling Operating, LLC, is the drilling contractor and well operator for such partnerships. Through its own participation, contributions and coverage, Aztec owns a 30% interest in all of its drilling/production partnerships. In general clarification of its activities, in addition to its own direct corporate participations in industry partner wells, Aztec sometimes sponsors lower risk, development drilling/production programs which include significant tax benefits; all of which are offered only through FINRA Registered Broker Dealers and Registered Investment Advisors to Accredited Investors. Aztec’s sponsored drilling/production programs, when offered, focus primarily on shallow oil/gas drilling, are considered unique, and also incorporate a sophisticated exit strategy for investors.
