                                               (Attach Extra Sheets if Needed)

The Registrant is currently negotiating with its lender to replace its current
revolving credit facility that terminates on June 27, 2002 with a new credit
facility. The Registrant seeks an extension of time to file its Annual Report on
Form 10-K in order to include the outcome of these negotiations in the report.
The outcome of these negotiations will affect the content of the Registrant's
disclosures regarding its liquidity and capital resources and other disclosures
required in the Annual Report on Form 10-K. As a result, the Registrant would
not be able to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K without unreasonable
effort or expense.

     the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is

SEC 1344 (2-99)

                                   ANNEX I

        As previously reported in its Form 8-K filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on March 7, 2002, the Registrant reported preliminary
results of a $168 million loss for the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2001,
or ($4.02) per share, compared to net income of $6 million, or $0.16 per share,
for the same period a year ago. For the year ended December 31, 2001, the
Registrant reported preliminary results of a net loss of $160 million, or
($3.85) per share, compared to a net loss of $10 million, or ($0.25) per share
in 2000. The results are subject to completion of the annual audit.

        Year-end onshore U.S. reserves, including minority interest, reviewed by
the Registrant's independent reserve auditors, were approximately 417 billion
cubic feet of natural gas equivalent ("Bcfe"), an increase of 12% over year-end
2000. Reserve additions of 111 Bcfe and downward revisions of 13 Bcfe due to
lower product prices, compared to 2001 production of 46 Bcfe, represents a
replacement rate of 213%. The Registrant invested a total of approximately $109
million onshore U.S. during the year resulting in a finding and development cost
of $1.11/Mcfe.

        Results without unusual items were a loss of $8 million for the fourth
quarter and $5 million for 2001. The following table summarizes the significant
items that have influenced the preliminary quarterly and annual results of
operations (pre-tax amounts, except as indicated):

                                                                                           Three Months                Year

        In the fourth quarter, the Registrant's Cooper Floating Production
System ("FPS") and pipelines were written down to a fair market valuation based
on competitive factors for processing and transportation facilities in the Llano
area and the values management believes could be received in an orderly sale of
the assets. Certain onshore U.S. oil and gas properties were impaired a total of
$29 million of which $23 million was attributable to the production payment
resulting from the Encogen obligation. The Registrant's Indonesian assets were
impaired to reflect the bid of a potential purchaser with whom the Registrant is
currently negotiating. The fourth quarter results also include a loss on sale of
$18 million from the January exercise of a previously-described option to
repurchase a portion of the production payment resulting from the Encogen
obligation and a reduction in the net realizable value of the deferred tax asset
in accordance with FAS 109. The Registrant realized an extraordinary post-tax
gain from the repurchase of a portion of the notes related to the FPS and

        Revenues for the fourth quarter were $47 million, or approximately 36%
lower than the $73 million reported for the fourth quarter a year ago. Lower
revenues were primarily the result of lower average oil and natural gas prices
and lower volumes of natural gas related to the offshore shelf properties sold
in December 2000. Total expenses for the quarter, excluding loss from asset
sales and impairments, were $54 million in 2001, unchanged from 2000. A $3
million bad debt expense was offset by lower depreciation expenses related
primarily to lower overall production volumes.

        Revenues for the year 2001 were $207 million, or approximately 21% lower
than the $262 million reported for 2000. Lower revenues this year were primarily
the result of lower natural gas and oil production due to the sale of the
offshore shelf properties and lower average oil prices. Total expenses for 2001,
excluding the gain from asset sales and impairments, were $193 million, compared
to $204 million for the twelve months of 2000. Lower depreciation expenses
related primarily to lower overall production volumes were partially offset by
increased exploration expense due to costs associated with the stacking of the
Arctic I rig and recognition of the net cost associated with the assignment of
the Arctic I rig contract and increased taxes other than income. Excluding the
bad debt expense recorded in the fourth quarter, general, administrative and
other expenses were down approximately 18% for the year.

        At year-end, the Registrant's debt to capital ratio under its revolving
credit agreement is greater than the agreement's limit of 60% because of the
decrease in equity resulting from the above-described losses and increase in
outstanding borrowings. The lenders have agreed to amend the loan agreement to
increase the ratio to 72% and waive the covenant breach; the amendment and
waiver will expire April 30, 2002. The current revolving credit agreement
terminates June 27, 2002. If the Registrant is not able to effect a new credit
agreement or obtain additional waivers, it will be in default under the current
revolving credit agreement. The Registrant is negotiating with its lenders for a
new credit agreement with a maturity of June 2003. At present, most of the
lenders have approved the general terms of the new agreement that will require
the Registrant to provide a security interest in all of its U.S. proved reserves
and other assets.


        The Registrant's planned capital expenditures in 2002 are approximately
$50 million. Actual capital expenditures will depend on cash flow, which, in
turn, depends principally on realized natural gas prices during the year.
