Total oil and gas sales and total revenue, net of royalties grew from 2010 to 2011 due to the focus on increasing oil production, as well as increased oil prices. However, total oil and gas sales and total revenue, net of royalties dropped significantly from 2011 to 2012 as a result of the decreased commodity prices, and also the sale of properties during 2012. Earnings before the effect of impairment in 2011 became losses in 2012, also primarily due to decreased commodity prices. Loss and loss per share were impacted by impairment charges triggered by decreases in natural gas and natural gas liquids prices in all three years ($20.0 million - 2012, $35.2 million - 2011, and $153.2 million - 2010.) These impairment charges and the dispositions reported in 2011 and 2012 have also reduced total assets. Approximately $73.9 million in proceeds from dispositions in 2012 and $11.6 million in 2011 were used to pay down bank debt.
Total debt including convertible debentures grew from 2010 to 2011, reflecting the financing related to the capital programs to develop oil properties.
