Business Description

We are a publicly traded limited liability company focused on the acquisition and development of mature, long-lived oil and natural gas properties in the United States. Our primary business objective is to generate stable cash flows allowing us to resume making monthly cash distributions to our unitholders and, over time, increase our monthly cash distributions through the acquisition of additional mature, long-lived oil and natural gas properties. Through our operating subsidiaries, as of December 31, 2016, we own properties and oil and natural gas reserves primarily located in ten operating basins:

the Green River Basin in Wyoming;

the Permian Basin in West Texas and New Mexico;

the Piceance Basin in Colorado;

the Gulf Coast Basin in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama;

the Arkoma Basin in Arkansas and Oklahoma;

the Big Horn Basin in Wyoming and Montana;

Our primary business objective is to generate stable cash flows to allow us to resume making monthly cash distributions to our unitholders, and over the long-term to increase the amount of our future distributions by executing the following business strategies:

Replace reserves and/or production either through the development of our extensive inventory of undeveloped locations or make accretive acquisitions of oil and natural gas properties in the known producing basins of the continental United States characterized by a high percentage of producing reserves, long-life, stable production and step-out development opportunities.

Green River Basin Properties

Our Green River Basin properties are comprised of assets in the Pinedale and Jonah fields of southwestern Wyoming. Production in the Green River Basin is dominated by natural gas and NGLs from tight sands formations. The Pinedale field lies at depths anywhere between 11,000 to 14,000 feet with similar depths in the adjacent Jonah field. Additionally, we have Green River Basin properties located in the Hay Reservoir, Great Divide, Siberia Ridge, Wamsutter, Echo Springs and Standard Draw fields in southwestern Wyoming. These gas/condensate fields produce from stacked cretaceous aged tight sandstones within the Lewis and Almond/Mesaverde intervals between 8,000 and 12,000 feet deep. Our properties located in south central Wyoming in the Sierra Madre field produce predominately oil from fractured cretaceous aged Niobrara limestone (between 5,000 and 6,000 feet) and conventional Shannon sandstone (between 3,500 and 4,000 feet).

Permian Basin Properties

The Permian Basin is one of the largest and most prolific oil and natural gas producing basins in the United States extending over West Texas and southeast New Mexico. The Permian Basin is characterized by oil and natural gas fields with long production histories and multiple producing formations. Our Permian Basin properties are located in several counties which extend from Eddy County, New Mexico to Ellis County, Texas and encompass hundreds of fields with multiple producing intervals. The majority of our producing wells in the Permian Basin are mature oil wells that also produce high-Btu casinghead gas with significant NGLs content. These properties primarily produce at depths ranging from 2,000 feet to 12,000 feet.

Piceance Basin Properties

The Piceance Basin is located in northwestern Colorado. Our Piceance Basin properties, which we operate, are located in the Gibson Gulch. The Gibson Gulch area is a basin-centered gas play along the north end of the Divide Creek anticline near the eastern limits of the Piceance Basin’s productive Mesaverde (Williams Fork) trend at depths of approximately 6,000 to 8,000 feet.

Gulf Coast Basin Properties

Our Gulf Coast Basin properties include properties in the onshore Gulf Coast area, North Louisiana, Alabama, East Texas, South Texas and Mississippi.

Production from our North Louisiana properties comes from the East Haynesville and Cotton Valley fields. These properties include multiple productive zones including Cotton Valley, James Lime, Pettet, Haynesville, Smackover and Hosston. East Haynesville is located in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana and lies at a depth of approximately 9,000 to 11,000 feet. The Cotton Valley field is located in Webster Parish, Louisiana and produces from an average depth of 11,000 feet.

Our Alabaman properties include the Big Escambia Creek, Flomaton and Fanny Church fields located in Escambia County, Alabama. These fields produce from either the Smackover or Norphlet formations at depths ranging from approximately 15,000 to 16,000 feet. The Fanny Church field is located two miles east of Big Escambia Creek. The Flomaton field is adjacent to and partially underlies the Big Escambia Creek field and produces from the Norphlet formation at depths from approximately 15,000 to 16,000 feet. The Smackover and Norphlet reservoirs are sour gas condensate reservoirs which produce gas and fluids containing a high percentage of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide. These impurities are extracted at the Company-operated Big Escambia Creek Treating facility and the effluent gas is further processed for the removal of natural gas liquids in the Big Escambia Creek Gas Processing facility. The operation of the wells and the facility is closely connected, and we are the largest owner and operator of the combined assets. In addition to selling condensate, natural gas, and NGLs, we also market elemental sulfur.

Our South Texas properties primarily are located in Dewitt, Hidalgo, LaSalle, Live Oak and Webb Counties. Most of the production is high Btu gas that is produced from the Olmos and Escondido sand formations from a depth averaging 7,500 feet.

Arkoma Basin Properties

Our Arkoma Basin properties include properties in the Woodford Shale, located in eastern Oklahoma, the Fayetteville Shale, located in Arkansas, and royalty interests and non-operated working interest in both states.

Big Horn Basin Properties

The Big Horn Basin is a prolific basin which is characterized by oil and natural gas fields with long production histories and multiple producing formations.

Our Elk Basin field is located in Park County, Wyoming and Carbon County, Montana. We operate all of our properties in the Elk Basin area, which includes the Embar-Tensleep, Madison and Frontier formations as discussed below.

Embar-Tensleep Formation. Production in the Embar-Tensleep formation is being enhanced through a tertiary recovery technique involving effluent gas, or flue gas, from a natural gas processing facility located in the Elk Basin field. From 1949 to 1974, flue gas was injected into the Embar-Tensleep formation to increase pressure and improve production of resident hydrocarbons. Currently, we still use flue gas injection to maintain and improve production within this formation. Our wells in the Embar-Tensleep formation of the Elk Basin field are drilled to a depth of 5,100 to 6,600 feet.

Madison Formation. We plan to concentrate on implementing an injection program to enhance production in the Madison formation. The wells in the Madison formation of the Elk Basin field are drilled to a depth of 4,400 to 7,000 feet.

Frontier Formation. The Frontier formation is being produced through primary recovery techniques. The wells in the Frontier formation of the Elk Basin field are typically drilled to a depth of 1,400 to 2,700 feet.

We operate and own a 62% interest in the Elk Basin natural gas processing plant near Powell, Wyoming, which was first placed into operation in the 1940s. ExxonMobil Corporation (“Exxon”) owns a 34% interest in the Elk Basin natural gas processing plant, and other parties own the remaining 4% interest. This plant is a refrigeration natural gas processing plant that receives natural gas supplies through a natural gas gathering system from Elk Basin fields.

We also operate and own the Wildhorse pipeline system, which is an approximately 12-mile natural gas gathering system that transports approximately 1.0 MMcf/day of low-sulfur natural gas from the South Elk Basin fields to the Elk Basin natural gas processing plant.

Williston Basin Properties

Our Williston Basin properties are located in North Dakota and Montana, which include, among others, the Horse Creek field, the Charlson Madison Unit and the Elk field. The Horse Creek field is located in Bowman County, North Dakota and has producing oil wells from multiple horizons in the Red River formation. The Charlson Madison Unit produces from the unitized Madison formation. The Elk field is operated and produces from wells in McKenzie County, North Dakota.

Anadarko Basin Properties

The Anadarko Basin consists of operated and non-operated properties in the Verden field, and other fields located in the Anadarko Basin of western Oklahoma. Within the Anadarko Basin, our assets can generally be characterized by stratigraphic plays with multiple, stacked pay zones and more complex geology than our other operating areas. Properties in in the Anadarko Basin include mature fields with long production histories.


Wind River Basin Properties

The Wind River Basin is located in central Wyoming. Our activities are concentrated primarily in the eastern Wind River Basin, along the greater Waltman Arch. Our natural gas production in this basin is gathered through our own gathering systems and delivered to markets through pipelines owned by Tallgrass Interstate Gas Transmission and Colorado Interstate Gas (“CIG”).

Powder River Basin Properties

The Powder River Basin is primarily located in northeastern Wyoming. Our development operations are conducted in our coalbed methane (“CBM”) fields. CBM wells are drilled to 1,500 feet on average, targeting the Big George Coals, typically producing water in a process called dewatering. This process lowers reservoir pressure, allowing the gas to desorb from the coal and flow to the well bore. As the reservoir pressure declines, the wells begin producing methane gas at an increasing rate. As the wells mature, the production peaks, stabilizes and then begins declining.
