Bogert Natural Gas, Oil Reserves Up 115 Percent for Fiscal Year


Robinson, Robin, THE JOURNAL RECORD


An increase of 115.2 percent to $75.1 million in net revenues of oil and natural gas properties was estimated Monday for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 1987, by Bogert Oil Co. of Oklahoma City.

That would be up $40.2 million from the $34.9 million in net revenues for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 1986, Bogert said.

For estimating fiscal 1986 natural gas reserve values, Bogert Oil used a price of $1.50 per thousand cubic feet.

The higher price of the crude oil or natural gas can be translated to a longer life in the well, Monroe said, but it would not add much to the value of those reserves.

The prices have not changed much in the past year, so the values in Bogert Oil's estimates are not greatly affected by the price change.

"We would have been up in reserves even if we had not made any acquisitions," Monroe said.

During fiscal 1987, Bogert Oil drilled 54 economically productive wells, with a 12. …
