The company has reported revenue from ordinary activities of US$4.981 million for 2018 as compared to US$4.104 million in 2017, representing a growth of 21%.

During 2018, the company acquired 15,000 acres in the Powder River Basin and before that in Q3 2017 the company had acquired Borie Field, both of which are located in Wyoming, North America.
