The reason that I use Investor Village is because I can use Links; so posters can view for themselves.
I can also post the whole Exhibit 99.1(on 8K) without breaking it up in many parts to post on YAHOO.
"The Hoactzin dispute seems to be minor. "
Before the Fool "Bobcat" makes a mountain out of nothing
Tengasco had a Management Agreement until 12/18/2012 with Hoactzin.
The $386,00 Item in dispute:
"The Company as designated operator of the Hoactzin properties was administratively issued an “Incidence of Non-Compliance” by BOEM during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 concerning one of Hoactzin’s operated wells. This action calls for payment of a civil penalty of $386,000 for the late filing of certain reports in 2011 by a contractor on the facility. The Company has filed an appeal of this action in order to attempt to significantly reduce the civil penalty. This appeal required a fully collateralized appeal bond to postpone the payment obligation until the appeal is determined. The Company has posted and collateralized this bond with RLI Insurance Company. If the bond was not posted, the appeal would be administratively denied and the order to the Company as operator to pay the $386,000 penalty would be final. While the Company believes it will ultimately prevail in the appeal process, it is reasonably possible to expect that the Company may be required to pay a portion of this penalty. The Company estimates the range of this possible payment to be between zero and $386,000. During the quarter ended June 30, 2013 there have been no new developments in this appeal process. "
The Filing in dispute happen when Tengasco was the Operator and had a Management Agreement.
With a little Luck the Penalty will be reduced.
