President and Chief Executive Officer F.T. "Chip" Webster commented that during the fourth quarter of 2013 the Company's marketing operation recorded a $4.3 million pretax noncash write-down of crude oil inventory values following a decline in prices.  In addition, the Company experienced a narrowing of margins within its crude oil marketing business due to competitive pressures particularly in the South Texas and North Dakota regions.  The company also sustained a $2.2 million non-cash write-down of oil and gas property costs during the fourth quarter of 2013 due to adverse drilling results.
