Although, sales volume of 1st quarter this year decrease to 253,411 barrel of oil equivalent per day (BOED) compared with 271,292 BOED in the same period last year.

However, crude oil sales volume of the Vietnam 16-1 project was increased due to the production start up in the 3rd quarter of 2011. By this quarter, the Vietnam 16 -1 project can produce at the rate of 30,854 BOED and natural gas at 20 MMSCFD. Additional, crude oil sales volume of the S1 project was increased due to the production from new wells and higher beam pump activities.
