In the fourth quarter, Lucas had gross production of 19,898bbls of oil as compared to 17,343bbls of oil in the third quarter.

The company said that improvement in production during the fourth quarter was due to workovers, improved trucking, and field operational changes.

This is gross production from the wells and not net to the interest of Lucas (after royalty and joint venture partners interests).

The third quarter saw slow movement of oil off of the Lucas operated leases due to a shortage of trucking as a result of the Eagle Ford activity.
