Quarterly production in line with recently reduced guidance. InPlay reported 2023 production volume of 9,025 boe/day consistent with guidance of 9,000-9,100 boe/day. We had expressed concern that the previous decline in guidance reflected a sharper production decline curve than previously expected. Management assures that the decline curve has not changed and the decline reflects a shift towards drilling oil wells which have a lower initial production rate than gas wells. 

InPlay released a reserve report for the 2023 year end. The reserve report shows a modest reduction in reserves and reserve value implying a reserve replacement rate slightly below 1.0 times. The calculation is somewhat complicated by changing assumptions regarding assumed energy pricing and recoverability. The report indicated a finding, development and acquisition cost of $23.36/boe which is attractive compared to current prices.
