The Company would like to draw the attention of investors and analysts to certain events that occurred during the three months ended 30 September 2009 (3Q 2009) that had a direct impact on our revenues and expenses during the period.
1. During the quarter we recorded eight (8) tankers as sold, or approximately 467 thousand tons of stable gas condensate, representing an increase of 41.9% over the corresponding 3Q 2008. We previously indicated in our 3Q 2009 operational results press release that seven (7) tankers were shipped for export; however, after further review, it was determined that the additional tanker satisfied the IFRS requirements for recognition as sold during the period.
