PARKER DRILLING COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1.   General — In the opinion of the management of Parker Drilling Company, the accompanying unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements reflect all adjustments (of a normally recurring nature) which are necessary for a fair presentation of (1) the financial position as of June 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007, (2) the results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 and 2007, and (3) cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2008 and 2007. Results for the six months ended June 30, 2008 are not necessarily indicative of the results that will be realized for the year ending December 31, 2008. The financial statements should be read in conjunction with our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007.
 
    Stock-Based Compensation — Total stock-based compensation expense recognized under SFAS No. 123R for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2008 and for the three and six months periods ended June 30, 2007 was $1.9 million and $3.9 million and $2.3 million and $4.1 million, respectively, all of which was related to restricted stock plan expense. Stock-based compensation expense is included in our consolidated condensed income statement in both “General and administration expense” and “operating expense.” There were no unvested stock options at June 30, 2008. The Company had 299,300 outstanding and exercisable stock options as of June 30, 2008, the aggregate intrinsic value of which was $0.9 million, with a weighted average exercise price of $2.89. Unvested restricted stock awards at December 31, 2007 and June 30, 2008 were 1,502,592 shares and 1,508,983 shares, respectively. Total unrecognized compensation cost related to unamortized restricted stock awards was $5.1 million as of December 31, 2007 and $7.0 million as of June 30, 2008. There were 488,840 and 865,574 restricted shares granted to certain officers and key employees during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2008. The remaining unrecognized compensation cost related to unamortized restricted stock awards will be amortized over a weighted-average vesting period of approximately one year.
 
    The excess tax benefit realized for the tax deductions from options exercised and restricted stock vesting totaled $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008, which has been reported as a financing cash inflow in the consolidated condensed statement of cash flows.
 
    Construction Contract — Historically the Company has primarily constructed drilling rigs for its own use. In some instances, however, the Company enters into contracts to design, construct, deliver and commission a rig for a major customer. In 2008, we were awarded a cost reimbursable, fixed fee contract to construct, deliver and commission a rig for extended reach drilling work in Alaska. In 2006, the Company entered into a separate contract for the front end engineering design of the rig. Total cost of the construction phase is currently expected to be approximately $195 million. The Company recognizes revenues received and costs incurred related to its construction contract on a gross basis and income for the related fees on a percentage of completion basis. Construction costs in excess of funds received from the customer are accumulated and reported as part of other current assets. At June 30, 2008, a net receivable (construction costs less progress payments) of $4.6 million is included in other current assets.
 
    Cash and Cash Equivalents — For purposes of the balance sheet and the statement of cash flows, the Company considers cash equivalents to be all highly liquid debt instruments that have a remaining maturity of three months or less at the date of purchase.

2.   Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) (continued)
 
    All stock options outstanding during the three and six months ended June 30, 2008, were included in the computation of diluted EPS as the options’ exercise prices were less than the average market price of the common shares. Options to purchase 321,000 shares of common stock with exercise prices ranging from $12.09 to $12.19 per share were outstanding during the three months ended June 30, 2007, and options to purchase 371,000 shares of common stock with exercise prices ranging from $10.81 to $12.19 per share were outstanding during the six months ended June 30, 2007, but were not included in the computation of diluted EPS because the options’ exercise prices were greater than the average market price of the common shares.
 
3.   Business Segments — The five primary services we provide are as follows: U.S. drilling, International drilling, Project management and engineering services, Construction contracts and Rental tools. In the first quarter of 2008, the Company created a new segment called Project management and engineering services by combining our labor, operations and maintenance and engineering services contracts which had been previously reported in our U.S. drilling or International drilling segments. The new segment was created in anticipation of the significant expansion of these projects and services and senior management’s resultant separate performance assessment and resource allocation for this segment. The new segment operations, unlike our U.S. and international drilling and rental tools operations, generally require little or no capital expenditures, and therefore have different performance assessment and resource needs. The Company anticipates the growth of this segment of our business and reviews and assesses its performance separately. Financial information for reportable segments for 2007 has been restated below to reflect this change. In the second quarter of 2008, the Company created a new segment called Construction contracts to reflect the Company’s Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation contract (“EPCI”). The new Construction contract segment income (fees) are accounted for on a percentage of completion basis. Also, revenues received and costs incurred related to the contract are recorded on a gross basis.

4.   Disposition of Assets — Asset dispositions in the first six months of 2008 included the sale of Rig 206 in Indonesia, for which we recorded no gain or loss, and miscellaneous equipment in the first and second quarter of 2008 that resulted in a recognized gain of $0.6 in both quarters. In the first six months of 2007 asset dispositions consisted primarily of the sale of workover barge Rigs 9 and 26 for proceeds of approximately $20.5 million, resulting in a recognized gain of $15.1 million.
 
5.   Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes — FIN 48 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. During March 2008, the Company resolved the pending tax case with the Kazakhstan Ministry of Finance by paying the reduced interest assessment related to tax payments made in 2007 (see Note 8 - Kazakhstan Tax Case), and we have accordingly reduced the previously recorded accruals based on the final resolution of this matter. As of June 30, 2008, the Company had a remaining liability for unrecognized tax benefits of $13.0 million primarily related to foreign operations.
 
6.   Income Tax Expense — Income tax expense was $14.2 million for the second quarter of 2008 and includes the reversal of a $3.1 million reserve for 2007 foreign tax credits as compared to income tax expense of $15.8 million for the second quarter of 2007.

7.   Saudi Arabia Joint Venture — On April 9, 2008, a subsidiary of Parker executed an agreement (“Sale Agreement”) to sell its 50 percent share interest in Al-Rushaid Parker Drilling Co. Ltd. (“ARPD”) to an affiliate of the Al Rushaid subsidiary that owns the remaining 50 percent interest. The terms of the Sale Agreement provided for a $2.0 million payment to Parker’s subsidiary as consideration for the 50 percent share interest of the Parker subsidiary and partial repayment of investments and advances of the Parker subsidiary to ARPD, including a $5.0 million advance in January 2008. During the first quarter of 2008, the Parker subsidiary made the decision to terminate any future funding to ARPD, and accordingly, the Company did not record equity in losses of ARPD in the first quarter of 2008. We recognized a $1.1 million loss, net of income taxes, in the first quarter of 2008 primarily as a result of nonrecoverable costs incurred by the Parker affiliate to support ARPD operations during the current quarter. The Parker subsidiary received the $2.0 million on April 15, 2008.
 
    The Sale Agreement obligates the resulting Saudi shareholders to indemnify the Parker subsidiary and its affiliates from claims arising out of or related to the operations of ARPD, including the drilling contracts between ARPD and Saudi Aramco, ARPD’s bank loans and vendors providing goods or services to ARPD. Each party has agreed to waive any claims that it may have against the other party arising out of the business of ARPD on or before the closing date, and subject to the formal transfer of the shares the Parker subsidiary has agreed to disclaim any remaining rights with respect to the unpaid portion of shareholder loans and payables owed by ARPD to the Parker subsidiary. The formal transfer of shares was recently approved by the Saudi Arabian authorities.
 
    The agreement also provides that there are no restrictions on Parker or any of its affiliates with regard to competing with ARPD in the future, including in Saudi Arabia.
 
8.   Kazakhstan Tax Case — On October 12, 2005, the Kazakhstan Branch (“PKD Kazakhstan”) of Parker Drilling’s subsidiary, Parker Drilling Company International Limited (“PDCIL”), received an Act of Tax Audit from the Ministry of Finance of Kazakhstan (“MinFin”) assessing PKD Kazakhstan an amount of KZT (Kazakhstan Tenge) 14.9 billion (approximately $125.8 million). Approximately KZT7.5 billion or $63.3 million was assessed for import Value Added Tax (“VAT”), administrative fines and interest on equipment imported to perform the drilling contracts (the “VAT Assessment”) and approximately KZT7.4 billion or $62.5 million for corporate income tax, individual income tax and social tax, administrative fines and interest in connection with the reimbursements received by PDCIL from a client for the upgrade of Barge Rig 257 and other issues related to PKD Kazakhstan’s operations in the Republic of Kazakhstan (the “Income Tax Assessment”).
 
    On May 24, 2006, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Kazakhstan (“SCK”) issued a decision upholding the VAT Assessment. Consistent with its contractual obligations, on November 20, 2006, the client advanced the actual amount of the VAT Assessment and this amount has been remitted to MinFin. The administrative fines related to the VAT Assessment are being appealed by the client who is contractually responsible to reimburse PKD Kazakhstan for any administrative fines ultimately assessed. The client has also contractually agreed to reimburse PKD Kazakhstan for any incremental income taxes that PKD Kazakhstan incurs from the reimbursement of this VAT Assessment.
 
    After multiple appeals to the SCK and two meetings of the U.S. Competent Authorities under the Mutual Agreement Procedure of the U.S.- Kazakhstan Tax Treaty, the SCK ultimately upheld the Income Tax Assessment and on December 12, 2007, PKD Kazakhstan paid the principal tax portion of the Income Tax Assessment, net of estimated taxes previously paid. After a further appeal against the interest portion of the notice of assessment, on February 25, 2008, the Atyrau Economic Court issued a ruling that interest on the income tax assessed should accrue from the October 12, 2005 assessment date as opposed to the original assessment in 2001, which resulted in a revised interest assessment by the Atyrau Tax Committee of approximately US$13 million, which was paid by PKD Kazakhstan on March 14, 2008, in final resolution of this matter. Income tax for the first six months of 2008 includes a benefit of $13.4 million of FIN 48 interest and foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations related to this final resolution.

  $ 388,397     $ 353,721  
 
           
    On July 5, 2007, we issued $125.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2.125 percent Convertible Senior Notes due July 15, 2012. Interest is payable semiannually on July 15th and January 15th. The initial conversion price is approximately $13.85 per share and is subject to adjustment for the occurrence of certain events stated within the indenture. Proceeds from the transaction were used to call our outstanding Senior Floating Rate notes, to pay the net cost of hedge and warrant transactions, and for general corporate purposes. Effectively, the hedge and warrant transactions increase the conversion price to approximately $18.29 per share.
 
    On September 20, 2007, we replaced our existing $40.0 million Credit Agreement with a new $60.0 million credit facility pursuant to an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “2007 Credit Facility”), which expires in September 2012. The 2007 Credit Facility was secured by rental tools equipment, accounts receivable and the stock of substantially all of our domestic subsidiaries, other than domestic subsidiaries owned by a foreign subsidiary, and contained customary affirmative and negative covenants such as minimum ratios for consolidated leverage, consolidated interest coverage and consolidated senior secured leverage.
 
    On May 15, 2008 we entered into a new Credit Agreement (“2008 Credit Facility”) with a five year senior secured $80.0 million revolving credit facility (“Revolving Credit Facility) and a senior secured term loan facility (“Term Loan Facility”) of up to $50.0 million. The obligations of the Company under the 2008 Credit Facility are guaranteed by substantially all of the Company’s domestic subsidiaries, except for domestic subsidiaries owned by foreign subsidiaries and certain immaterial subsidiaries, each of which has executed a guaranty. The 2008 Credit Facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants such as minimum ratios for consolidated leverage, consolidated interest coverage and consolidated senior secured leverage. On July 9, 2008, the Company drew down the remaining $15.0 million available on the Term Loan Facility, bringing the total amount outstanding to $50.0 million. The Term Loan will begin amortizing on September 30, 2009 at equal installments of $3.0 million per quarter.
 
10.   Derivative Instruments — We used derivative instruments to manage risks associated with interest rate fluctuations in connection with our $100.0 million Senior Floating Rate Notes, which were fully redeemed on September 27, 2007. These derivative instruments, which consisted of variable-to-fixed interest rate swaps, did not meet the hedge criteria in SFAS No. 133, “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities,” and were therefore not designated as hedges. Accordingly, the change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps was recognized in earnings.
 
    On July 17, 2007, we terminated one swap scheduled to expire in September 2008 and received $0.7 million. On September 4, 2007, our one remaining swap expired.

11.   Contingencies
 
    Bangladesh Claim
 
    In September 2005, a subsidiary of the Company was served with a lawsuit filed in the 152nd District Court of Harris County State of Texas on behalf of numerous citizens of Bangladesh claiming $250 million in damages due to various types of property damage and personal injuries (none involving loss of life) arising as a result of two blowouts that occurred in Bangladesh in January and June 2005, although only the June 2005 blowout involved the Company. The court dismissed the case on the basis that Houston, Texas, is not the appropriate location for this suit to be filed. The plaintiffs have appealed this dismissal; however, the Company believes the plaintiffs’ prospects of being successful on appeal are remote. No amounts were accrued at June 30, 2008.
 
    Asbestos-Related Claims
 
    In August 2004, the Company was notified that certain of its subsidiaries have been named, along with other defendants, in several complaints that have been filed in the Circuit Courts of the State of Mississippi by several hundred persons that allege that they were employed by some of the named defendants between approximately 1965 and 1986. The complaints name as defendants numerous other companies that are not affiliated with the Company, including companies that allegedly manufactured drilling- related products containing asbestos that are the subject of the complaints.
 
    The complaints allege that the Company’s subsidiaries and other drilling contractors used asbestos-containing products in offshore drilling operations, land-based drilling operations and in drilling structures, drilling rigs, vessels and other equipment and assert claims based on, among other things, negligence and strict liability and claims under the Jones Act and that the plaintiffs are entitled to monetary damages. Based on the report of the special master, these complaints have been severed and venue of the claims transferred to the county in which the plaintiff resides or the county in which the cause of action allegedly accrued. Subsequent to the filing of amended complaints, Parker Drilling has joined with other co-defendants in filing motions to compel discovery to determine what plaintiffs have an employment relationship with which defendant, including whether or not any plaintiffs have an employment relationship with subsidiaries of Parker Drilling. Out of 668 amended single-plaintiff complaints filed to date, sixteen (16) plaintiffs have identified Parker Drilling or one of its affiliates as a defendant. Discovery is proceeding in groups of 60 and none of the plaintiff complaints naming Parker are included in the first 60 (Group I). The initial discovery of Group I resulted in certain dismissals with prejudice, two dismissals without prejudice and two withdraws from Group I, leaving only 40 plaintiffs remaining in Group I. Selection of Discovery Group II was completed on April 21, 2008. Out of the 60 plaintiffs selected Parker Drilling was named in one suit.
 
    The subsidiaries named in these asbestos-related lawsuits intend to defend themselves vigorously and, based on the information available to the Company at this time, the Company does not expect the outcome to have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows; however, the Company is unable to predict the ultimate outcome of these lawsuits. No amounts were accrued at June 30, 2008.

    Gulfco Site
 
    Several years ago the Company received an information request under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”) designating Parker Drilling Offshore Corporation, a subsidiary of Parker Drilling as a potentially responsible party with respect to the Gulfco Marine Maintenance, Inc. Superfund Site in Freeport, Texas (EPA No. TX 055144539). The subsidiary responded to this request in 2003 with documents. In January, 2008 the subsidiary received an administrative order to participate in an investigation of the site and a study of the remediation needs and alternatives. The EPA alleges that the subsidiary is successor to a party who owned the Gulfco site during the time when chemical releases took place there. Two other parties have been performing that work since mid-2005 under an earlier version of the same order. The subsidiary believes that it has a sufficient cause to decline participation under the order and has notified the EPA of that decision. Non-compliance with an EPA order absent sufficient cause for doing so can result in substantial penalties under CERCLA. The subsidiary is continuing to evaluate its relationship to the site and intends to confer with the EPA in an effort to resolve the matter. The Company has not yet estimated the amount or impact on our operations, financial position or cash flows of any costs related to the site. The EPA and the other two parties have spent over $2.5 million studying and conducting initial remediation of the site, and it is anticipated that an additional $1.3 million will be required to complete the remediation. The Company does not believe it has any obligation with respect to the remediation of the property, and accordingly no accrual was made as of June 30, 2008.
 
    Customs Agent Investigation
 
    As previously disclosed, the Company received requests from the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) in July 2007 and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC”) in January 2008 relating to the Company’s utilization of the services of a customs agent. In response to those requests, the Company is conducting an internal investigation. The DOJ and the SEC are conducting parallel investigations into possible violations of U.S. law by the Company, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the “FCPA”). In particular, the DOJ and the SEC are investigating the Company’s use of customs agents in certain countries in which the Company currently operates or formerly operated, including Kazakhstan and Nigeria. The Company is fully cooperating with the DOJ and SEC investigations. At this point, we are unable to predict the duration, scope or result of the DOJ or the SEC investigation or whether either agency will commence any legal action. If we are not in compliance with the FCPA and other laws governing the conduct of business with foreign government entities (including local laws), we may be subject to criminal and civil penalties and other remedial measures, which could have an adverse impact on our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
 
    Economic Sanctions and Export Restrictions Compliance
 
    Our international operations are subject to economic sanctions laws and regulations restricting certain activities involving countries, entities and persons on which the U.S. has imposed economic sanctions. Pursuant to a recent internal review, we have preliminarily identified certain shipments of equipment and supplies that were routed through Iran. In addition, we have engaged in drilling wells in the Korpedje Field in Turkmenistan, from where natural gas may be exported by pipeline to Iran. We are currently reviewing these shipments and drilling activities to determine whether the timing, nature and extent of such shipments or drilling activities may have given rise to violations of these laws and regulations. Although we are unable to predict the scope or result of this internal review or its ultimate outcome, we have initiated a voluntary disclosure of these potential compliance issues to the appropriate U.S. government agency. If we are not in compliance with export restrictions and U.S. economic sanctions, we may be subject to civil or criminal penalties and other remedial measures, which could have an adverse impact on our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.

12.   Recent Accounting Pronouncements — In May 2008, the FASB issued FSP Accounting Principles Board (APB) 14-1, “Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments That May Be Settled in Cash upon Conversion (Including Partial Cash Settlement).” This FSP clarifies that convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion, including partial cash settlement, are not addressed by paragraph 12 of APB Opinion No. 14, “Accounting for Convertible Debt and Debt Issued with Stock Purchase Warrants.” Additionally, this FSP specifies that issuers of such instruments should separately account for the liability and equity components in a manner that will reflect the entity’s nonconvertible debt borrowing rate when interest cost is recognized in subsequent periods. This FSP is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008 and interim periods within those fiscal years. We will adopt the provisions of FSP AAPB 14-1 on January 1, 2009 and will be required to retroactively apply its provisions, which means we will restate our consolidated financial statements for prior periods. We have not yet determined the impact of this FSP on our consolidated financial statements.

OVERVIEW AND OUTLOOK
     While impacted by both supply and demand concerns, energy prices remained high during the second quarter, sustaining both international and domestic drilling activity. Both dayrates and utilization of our U.S. barge rigs have been higher than expected throughout the first half of 2008. While we have recently seen softening in pricing, we anticipate utilization will remain near current levels throughout the remainder of the year. Demand for our rentals tools has remained strong and is expected to continue throughout the year. Utilization of our international fleet improved during the second quarter of 2008 and we expect utilization to remain consistent through the end of 2008.
Overview
     Gross margin was $50.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008 compared to $42.9 million for the comparable three month period in 2007. While Quail Tools’ gross margin continued significant growth with a 28.9 percent increase over the same three month period in 2007, gross margin in our Gulf of Mexico (“GOM”) barge market declined by $5.6 million primarily as a result of lower dayrates in 2008. International gross margin was $9.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008 compared to $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2007, as a result of a $13.1 million increase in international operations margins being offset by a $6.1 million increase in depreciation expense. In Colombia, Rig 268 commenced operation in mid-June under a new contract and in Kazakhstan, Rig 247, which spud on March 31, operated all quarter. Project management and engineering services gross margin also increased $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2008 over the second quarter of 2007.
     We also recently announced the award of a new contract to construct, deliver and commission a land-based rig for BP to drill ultra extended-reach wells to offshore targets in the Liberty field of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea which contributed $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2008. On May 6, 2008, we announced our re-entry into the Alaska market with a letter of intent from BP for a five-year drilling contract that will require a subsidiary to construct and operate two new rigs for development drilling on the North Slope of Alaska. The cost of construction of the two new rigs will be funded partially by our new Credit Facility which was executed on May 15, 2008. The 2008 Credit Facility of $130.0 million consists of an $80 million revolving credit facility and a $50.0 million term loan facility.

OVERVIEW AND OUTLOOK (continued)
Outlook
     Current utilization of our U.S. marketable barges is 93% and we expect demand to remain strong throughout 2008. Most of our barges are currently operating under contracts with options for additional wells and Rig 51, which is currently being refurbished, is expected to be ready for work at the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2008. Rig 55 is scheduled for refurbishment late in 2008.
     Our rental tools business also expects continued strong demand for its services in the active resource plays served by its six facilities. Our two newest facilities in Texarkana, Texas and Williston, Utah are benefiting from the active Haynesville, Barnett Fayetteville, Woodford and Bakken shale areas.
     We also expect higher earnings in our international drilling operations during the second half of 2008 as we expect utilization to remain near the current level of 87%. In our Latin America region, Rig 268 commenced operation in mid-June under a new contract after being stacked during the first half of 2008. Rig 121 is mobilizing to Mexico after being released by the operator in Libya in January 2008, and is expected to commence operations under a new, four-year contract by the end of the third quarter of 2008.
     In our CIS region, Rig 269, one of our two new design high-efficiency rigs commenced operation on its first contract in early August. Also, rig 257 which operates in the Caspian Sea, is operating at a significantly higher dayrate pursuant to a letter of understanding with the operator.
     Earnings growth is also projected as a result of the recent announcements in July 2008 of a contract to construct, deliver and commission an extended-reach rig for work in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea. This rig is being constructed for BP in New Iberia, Louisiana, and the State of Washington and is anticipated to be commissioned on the North Slope of Alaska during the first quarter of 2010. We expect additional earnings growth from our project management and engineering services segment with the announcement in August 2008 of our contract to design the drilling package for an offshore drilling platform in the Arkutun-Dagi field of Sakhalin Island in Russia.
     As noted in the Overview above, we expect final approval and execution of a long-term development drilling contract in Alaska in the third quarter of 2008, utilizing two new build land rigs. Operations are anticipated to commence during the second half of 2010 after construction and mobilization to the North Slope.
     As noted in Part II, Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” the parallel investigations of the DOJ and the SEC into possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) in connection with our use of customs agent services in certain countries in which we currently operate or formerly operated, including Kazakhstan and Nigeria, is ongoing. In addition, we are currently reviewing our drilling activities in Turkmenistan and the shipment of equipment and supplies to support these drilling activities to determine whether these activities may have given rise to violations of U.S. economic sanctions relating to Iran. See Note 11, “Contingencies—Economic Sanctions and Export Restrictions Compliance,” in the notes to our unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements. We have initiated a voluntary disclosure of these potential compliance issues to the appropriate U.S. government agency. However, we are unable to predict the scope or result of these matters or their ultimate outcome and, if we are not in compliance with applicable laws and regulatory requirements, we may be subject to civil or criminal penalties and other remedial measures, which could materially harm our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Three Months Ended June 30, 2008 Compared with Three Months Ended June 30, 2007
     We recorded net income of $22.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008, as compared to net income of $16.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007. Gross margin was $50.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $42.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007.
     In the first quarter of 2008, we began separate presentation of our project management and engineering services segment. As part of our long-term strategic growth plan, we have begun to separately monitor the results of this non-capital intensive group of operations. Prior to 2008, these results were included in the U.S. and international drilling segments, and as such, 2007 segment information has been restated to conform to the new presentation. We also created a new segment in the second quarter of 2008 to separately reflect results of our extended-rig construction contract.

(1)   Gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, are computed as revenues less direct operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization expense; gross margin percentages are computed as gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization, as a percent of revenues. The gross margin amounts, excluding depreciation and amortization, and gross margin percentages should not be used as a substitute for those amounts reported under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). However, we monitor our business segments based on several criteria, including gross margin. Management believes that this information is useful to our investors because it more accurately reflects cash generated by segment. Such gross margin amounts are reconciled to our most comparable GAAP measure as follows:

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
U.S. Drilling Segment
     Revenues for the U.S. drilling segment decreased $7.1 million to $49.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2007. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to a $3.8 million decrease for our barge drilling operations as average dayrates for our deep drilling barges fell approximately $8,200 per day. Utilization for US barges was higher for the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the same period in 2007. Also in the second quarter of 2007 we had two land rigs drilling in the U.S. that primarily operate in our international land segment. These rigs contributed $3.3 million in revenues in the second quarter of 2007, but by the end of 2007 had returned to international operations.
     As a result of the above mentioned factors, gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, decreased $5.1 million to $27.2 million as compared to the second quarter of 2007.
International Drilling Segment
     International drilling revenues increased $34.9 million to $77.9 million during the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007. Of this increase, $30.1 million is related to international land drilling revenues and $4.8 million from offshore operations.
     Land revenues in Mexico, Algeria and Turkmenistan increased by $19.6 million, $5.1 million and $2.0 million, respectively, as there were minimal drilling operations in Mexico and no drilling operations in the other two countries in the second quarter of 2007. Revenues in the CIS region increased by $15.6 million primarily attributable to an $11.0 million increase in the Karachaganak area of Kazakhstan as a result of the addition of Rigs 249 and 258 to existing operations of Rigs 107 and 216, and the above mentioned Turkmenistan revenues. These increases were offset by a decrease of $9.1 million in Colombia as one of the two stacked rigs began operations in mid-May 2008, whereas both rigs operated during the second quarter of 2007.
     In our Asia Pacific region, revenues decreased $1.2 in the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007 due mainly to lower utilization (50%) in Papua New Guinea ($6.2 million) being partially offset by a $3.9 million increase in New Zealand due to increased dayrates and operating days and a $1.1 million increase in our Indonesia operations.
     Operating gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization, for international land operations increased $7.9 million in the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007, due primarily to favorable increases in our operations in Mexico ($7.5 million) and the CIS region ($5.1 million), partially offset by a decrease in Colombia ($5.5 million). The increase in Mexico is attributable to six rigs operating the entire quarter compared to minimal operations during the second quarter of 2007. In the CIS region, increased utilization in the Karachaganak area of Kazakhstan and operation of Rig 230 in Turkmenistan were the main drivers of the $5.1 million increase. In Colombia, only one of two rigs operated for a portion of the second quarter compared to both rigs operating in the second quarter of 2007.
     International offshore revenues increased $4.7 million to $13.7 million during the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007. This increase was due primarily to higher revenues for Barge Rig 257 ($4.1 million) in the Caspian Sea as a result of a higher dayrate. Operating gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, for international offshore operations increased $4.3 million primarily as a result of this higher dayrate.
Project Management and Engineering Services Segment
     Revenues for this segment increased $9.6 million during the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007. This increase was the result of higher revenues for our Kuwait project management operations ($6.5 million, of which $5.5 million was for reimbursables) and engineering services for our BP Liberty project ($1.8 million). Project management and engineering services do not incur depreciation and amortization, and as such, operating gross margin for this segment increased $1.2 million in the current period as compared to the prior period. The majority of this increase was driven by our Kuwait operations ($0.9 million).

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
Construction Contract Segment
     Revenues for our construction contract were $20.1 million for the second quarter of 2008, as we began work on our EPCI contract for an extended-reach drilling rig for use in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea. Operating gross margin for the EPCI project was $1.0 million based on the percentage of completion of the contract.
Rental Tools Segment
     Rental tools revenues increased $9.0 million to $40.4 million during the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007. The increase was due primarily to an increase in rental revenues of $3.2 million at our Texarkana, Texas facility, $1.0 million at our New Iberia, Louisiana facility, $0.2 million from our Evanston, Wyoming facility, $5.1 million from our newest location in Williston, North Dakota and $0.6 million from our Victoria, Texas location, partially offset by declines of $0.8 million and $0.4 million at our international operations and Odessa, Texas location, respectively. Revenues increased as a result of our expansion efforts in Texarkana, Texas and Williston, North Dakota.
     Rental tools operating gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, increased $5.5 million to $24.4 million for the current quarter as compared to the second quarter of 2007. The 2006 and 2007 expansion of Quail has been completed as equipment has been delivered and Quail’s new facility in Texarkana, Texas opened in April 2007. The new facility provides increased coverage of the Barnett, Fayetteville, Woodford and Haynesville shale areas in East Texas, Southwest Arkansas, Southeast Oklahoma and Northwest Louisiana.
Other Financial Data
     Gain on asset dispositions for the second quarter of 2008 and 2007 was $0.6 million and $0.3 million, respectively, as a result of minor asset sales during each period. Interest expense was relatively unchanged in the second quarter of 2008 as compared to the second quarter of 2007. Interest income decreased $1.3 million due to lower cash balances available for investments in the second quarter of 2008 as compared to 2007. General and administration expense increased $2.3 million as compared to the second quarter of 2007 due primarily to higher legal and professional fees associated with the ongoing Department of Justice (‘DOJ”) and SEC investigations into the customs agent discussed in Note 11 in the notes to the unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements.
     In 2004, we entered into two variable-to-fixed interest rate swap agreements. We reported the mark-to-market change in the fair value of the interest rate derivatives in earnings. For the second quarter of 2008 we had no swaps outstanding and therefore reported no charge or benefit related to these two swaps, as compared to the comparable period in 2007 where the fair value of the derivative positions remained relatively unchanged. For additional information see Note 10 in the notes to the unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements.
     Income tax expense was $14.2 million for the second quarter of 2008 and includes the reversal of a $3.1 million reserve for 2007 foreign tax credits, as compared to income tax expense of $15.8 million for the second quarter of 2007.
Six Months Ended June 30, 2008 Compared with Six Months Ended June 30, 2007
     We recorded net income of $46.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008, as compared to net income of $46.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007. Operating income was $91.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008 which consists of increases in international operations, project management and engineering services, construction contract and rental tools of $30.6 million offset by a decrease of $14.9 million in U.S. drilling and a $16.6 million increase in depreciation expense as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2007.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
     In the first quarter of 2008, we began separate presentation of our project management and engineering services segment which is presented below. This segment is a focus of our long-term strategic growth plan, which we have begun to separately monitor. Prior to 2008, these results were included in the U.S. and international drilling segments, and as such, 2007 segment information has been restated to conform to the new presentation. We also created a new segment in the second quarter of 2008 to separately reflect results of our extended-rig construction contract.
     The following is an analysis of our operating results for the comparable periods:

(1)   Gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, are computed as revenues less direct operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization expense; gross margin percentages are computed as gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization, as a percent of revenues. The gross margin amounts, excluding depreciation and amortization, and gross margin percentages should not be used as a substitute for those amounts reported under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). However, we monitor our business segments based on several criteria, including gross margin. Management believes that this information is useful to our investors because it more accurately reflects cash generated by segment. Such gross margin amounts are reconciled to our most comparable GAAP measure as follows:

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
U.S. Drilling Segment
     Revenues for the U.S drilling segment decreased $22.2 million to $95.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2007. The decreased revenues were primarily due to a $12.3 million decrease for our barge drilling operations as average dayrates for our deep drilling barges fell approximately $7,500 per day. Utilization for U.S. barges was higher for the first six months of 2008 as compared to the same period in 2007. Also in the first six months of 2007 we had two land rigs drilling in the U.S. that primarily operate in our international land segment. These rigs contributed $9.9 million in revenues as compared to no revenues in the same period for 2008 as the two rigs were relocated to our Mexico operations during 2007.
     As a result of the above mentioned factors, gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, decreased $15.0 million to $51.6 million as compared to the same period of 2007.
International Drilling Segment
     International drilling revenues increased $61.7 million to $146.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2007. Of this increase, $54.7 million is related to international land drilling revenues and $7.0 million to offshore operations.
     Land revenues in Mexico, Algeria and Turkmenistan increased by $37.9 million, $9.9 million and $4.1 million, respectively, as there were minimal drilling operations in Mexico and none in the other two countries during the first six months of 2007. Revenues in the CIS region increased by $24.7 million primarily attributable to a $17.9 million increase in the Karachaganak area of Kazakhstan as a result of the addition of Rigs 249 and 258 to existing operations of Rigs 107 and 216, and the above mentioned Turkmenistan revenues. These increases were offset by lower utilization of our two rigs in Colombia in 2008, resulting in a decrease of $12.5 million as compared to 2007.
     In our Asia Pacific region, revenues decreased $5.7 million due mainly to completion of our contract within Bangladesh for Rig 225 in March 2007 ($3.5 million), lower utilization (50%) in Papua New Guinea ($9.1 million) being partially offset by a $4.9 million increase in New Zealand due to increased dayrates and operating days and a $2.0 million increase in our Indonesia operations.
     Gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization, for international land operations increased $11.1 million, due primarily to favorable increases in our operations in Mexico ($14.7 million) and the CIS region ($7.8 million), offset by decreases in Colombia ($8.1 million) and our Asia Pacific region ($3.3 million). The increase in Mexico is attributable to four rigs operating the entire period in 2008 and two rigs commencing operations in February in 2008 as we were in the start up phase for these operations in the second quarter of 2007. In the CIS region, increased utilization in the Karachaganak area of Kazakhstan and operation of Rig 230 in Turkmenistan were the main drivers of the $7.8 million increase. In Colombia, the completion of our contracts in late 2007 and late February 2008 were the cause of the decrease, although Rig 268 began a one year contract in mid-May 2008. Our Asia Pacific region decline of $3.3 million was a result of Rig 225 in Bangladesh not operating in 2008 as compared to 2007 and Papua New Guinea incurring lower utilization when compared to the same period of 2007, with these declines being partially offset by increases in our New Zealand and Indonesia operations.
     International offshore revenues increased $7.0 million to $23.7 million during the first six months of 2008 as compared to the first six months of 2007. This increase was due primarily to higher dayrates for both of our barge rigs. Gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, for international offshore operations increased $5.1 million as a result of the higher dayrates.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
Project Management and Engineering Services Segment
     Revenues for this segment increased $10.4 million during the first six months of 2008 as compared to the first six months of 2007. This increase was the result of higher revenues for our Sakhalin Island ($1.5 million) and Kuwait ($6.7 million of which $5.5 million was reimbursables) project management operations and engineering services for our BP Liberty project ($1.5 million) partially offset by a decrease of $1.7 million in our Papua New Guinea project management contracts that ceased operations during 2007. Project management and engineering services do not incur depreciation and amortization, and as such, gross margin for this segment increased $2.4 million in the current period as compared to the prior period. This increase was driven by our Kuwait operations ($1.3 million) and our operations on Sakhalin Island ($0.9 million).
Construction Contract Segment
     Revenues for our construction contract were $20.1 million for the first six months of 2008, as we began work on our EPCI contract for an extended-reach drilling rig for use in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea in April 2008. This project is a cost plus fixed fee contract. Gross margin for the EPCI project was $1.0 million based on the percentage of completion of the contract.
Rental Tools Segment
     Rental tools revenues increased $18.5 million to $79.9 million during the first six months of 2008 as compared to the first six months of 2007. The increase was due primarily to an increase in rental revenues of $9.6 million at our Texarkana, Texas facility, $3.7 million at our New Iberia, Louisiana facility, $0.6 million from our Evanston, Wyoming facility, $8.8 million from our newest location in Williston, North Dakota and $0.2 million from our Victoria, Texas location, partially offset by declines of $0.4 million and $4.1 million at our international operations and Odessa, Texas location, respectively. Revenues increased as a result of our expansion efforts in Texarkana, Texas and Williston, North Dakota.
     Rental tools gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, increased $10.3 million to $48.0 million for the current period as compared to the comparable period of 2007. The 2006 and 2007 expansion of Quail has been completed as equipment has been delivered and Quail’s new facility in Texarkana, Texas opened in April 2007. The new facility provides increased coverage of the Barnett, Fayetteville, Woodford and Haynesville shale areas in East Texas, Southwest Arkansas, Southeast Oklahoma and Northwest Louisiana.
Other Financial Data
     Gain on asset dispositions was $1.2 million, a decrease of $15.4 million as a result of minor asset sales in the first six months ended June 30, 2008 as compared to a gain of $16.6 million during the same period in 2007 as we sold two workover barge rigs in January 2007 for a recognized gain of $15.1 million. Interest expense declined $0.6 million in the first half of 2008 as compared to the same period of 2007 due to a lower average interest rate on our outstanding debt. Interest income for the current period decreased $2.8 million due to lower cash balances available for investments as compared to the same period for 2007. General and administration expense increased $3.4 million as compared to the first six months of 2007, due primarily to higher legal and professional fees associated with the ongoing DOJ and SEC investigations into the customs agent discussed in Note 11 in the notes to the unaudited consolidated financial statements.
     In 2004, we entered into two variable-to-fixed interest rate swap agreements. The swap agreements did not qualify for hedge accounting and accordingly, we reported the mark-to-market change in the fair value of the interest rate derivatives in earnings. For the six months ended June 30, 2008 we had no swaps outstanding and therefore reported no charge or benefit related to these two swaps, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2007 where we recognized a $0.4 million decrease in the fair value of the derivative positions. For additional information see Note 10 in the notes to the unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements. These fees included upgrades to our compliance process and code of conduct.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
Other Financial Data (continued)
     Income tax expense was $19.4 million for the first six months of 2008, as compared to income tax expense of $39.9 million for 2007. Income tax expense for the first six months of 2008 includes a benefit of $13.4 million of FIN 48 interest and foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations related to our settlement of interest related to our Kazakhstan tax case (see Note 8 - Kazakhstan Tax Case), the establishment of a valuation allowance of $4.1 million related to a Papua New Guinea deferred tax asset and the reversal of a $3.1 million reserve relating to 2007 foreign tax credits. Based on the level of projected future taxable income over the periods for which the deferred tax asset is deductible in Papua New Guinea, management believes that it is more likely than not that our subsidiary will not realize the benefit of this deduction in Papua New Guinea.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Cash Flows
     As of June 30, 2008, we had cash and cash equivalents of $65.6 million, an increase of $5.5 million from December 31, 2007. The primary sources of cash for the six-month period ended June 30, 2008 as reflected on the consolidated condensed statements of cash flows were $79.4 million provided by operating activities, net proceeds of $15.0 million from draws on our credit facilities and net proceeds of $3.4 million from the sale of assets and insurance proceeds. The primary uses of cash were $89.5 million for capital expenditures and a $5.0 million investment in our unconsolidated joint venture. Major capital expenditures for the period included $24.0 million on construction of new international land rigs, $12.9 million on the construction of two new Alaska rigs and $24.4 million for tubulars and other rental tools for Quail Tools.
     As of June 30, 2007, we had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $102.3 million, a decrease of $52.8 million from December 31, 2006. The primary sources of cash for the six-month period as reflected on the consolidated condensed statements of cash flows were $37.2 million provided by operating activities and $15.8 million from stock options exercised. The primary use of cash was $83.9 million used in investing activities, including proceeds of $20.5 million from the sale of two workover barge rigs, and $129.6 million for capital expenditures. Major capital expenditures for the period included $35.4 million on construction of new land rigs and $41.9 million for tubulars and other rental tools for Quail Tools.
Financing Activity
     On July 5, 2007, we issued $125.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2.125 percent Convertible Senior Notes due July 15, 2012. Interest is payable semiannually on July 15th and January 15th. The initial conversion price is approximately $13.85 per share and is subject to adjustment for the occurrence of certain events stated within the indenture. Proceeds from the transaction were used to call our outstanding Senior Floating Rate notes, to pay the net cost of hedge and warrant transactions, and for general corporate purposes. Effectively, the hedge and warrant transactions increase the conversion price to approximately $18.29 per share.
     On September 20, 2007, we replaced our existing $40.0 million Credit Agreement with a new $60.0 million Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (“2007 Credit Facility”) which expires in September 2012. The 2007 Credit Facility was secured by rental tools equipment, accounts receivable and the stock of substantially all of our domestic subsidiaries, other than domestic subsidiaries owned by a foreign subsidiary, and contains customary affirmative and negative covenants such as minimum ratios for consolidated leverage, consolidated interest coverage and consolidated senior secured leverage.

Financing Activity (continued)
     On May 15, 2008 we entered into a new Credit Agreement (“2008 Credit Facility”) with a five year senior secured $80.0 million revolving credit facility (“Revolving Credit Facility) and a senior secured term loan facility (“Term Loan Facility”) of up to $50.0 million. The obligations of the Company under the 2008 Credit Facility are guaranteed by substantially all of the Company’s domestic subsidiaries, except for domestic subsidiaries owned by foreign subsidiaries and certain immaterial subsidiaries, each of which has executed a guaranty. The 2008 Credit Facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants such as minimum ratios for consolidated leverage, consolidated interest coverage and consolidated senior secured leverage.
     The 2008 Credit Facility is available for general corporate purposes and to fund reimbursement obligations under letters of credit the banks issue on our behalf pursuant to this facility. Revolving loans are available under the 2008 Credit Facility subject to a borrowing base calculation based on a percentage of eligible accounts receivable, certain specified barge drilling rigs and eligible rental equipment of the Company and its subsidiary guarantors. As of June 30, 2008, there were $13.0 million in letters of credit outstanding and $35.0 million outstanding on the Term Loan Facility. On July 9, 2008, the Company drew down the remaining $15.0 million available on the Term Loan Facility, bringing the total amount outstanding to $50.0 million. The Term Loan will begin amortizing on September 30, 2009 at equal installments of $3.0 million per quarter.
     On September 27, 2007, we redeemed $100.0 million face value of our Senior Floating Rate Notes pursuant to a redemption notice dated August 17, 2007 at the redemption price of 101.0 percent. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of our 2.125 percent Convertible Senior Notes were used to fund the redemption.
     We had total long-term debt of $388.4 million as of June 30, 2008, which consists of:
    $125.0 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes bearing interest at a rate of 2.125 percent, which are due July 15, 2012;
 
    $225.0 million aggregate principal amount of 9.625 percent Senior Notes, which are due October 1, 2013 plus an associated $3.4 million in unamortized debt premium; and,
 
    $35.0 million drawn against our Term Loan Facility.
     As of June 30, 2008, we had approximately $147.6 million of liquidity. This liquidity was comprised of $65.6 million of cash and cash equivalents on hand and $82.0 million of availability under the credit facility. We do not have any unconsolidated special-purpose entities, off-balance sheet financing arrangements nor guarantees of third-party financial obligations. We have no energy or commodity contracts.
     On May 6, 2008, we announced our re-entry into the Alaska market with a letter of intent from BP for a five-year drilling contract that will require a subsidiary to construct and operate two new rigs for development drilling on the North Slope of Alaska. The cost of construction of the two new rigs will be funded partially by our new 2008 Credit Facility.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
     Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures — We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Securities Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure based on the definition of “disclosure controls and procedures” in Rule 13a-15(e). In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. We performed evaluations under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer and our chief financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2008. Based on the foregoing, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level at June 30, 2008.
     Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2008 covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
     For information regarding legal proceedings, see Note 11, “Contingencies,” in Item 1 of Part I of this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, which information is incorporated herein by reference into this item.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
We are subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) and other laws concerning our international operations, and currently are conducting an investigation into possible violations. The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice are conducting parallel investigations into possible FCPA violations. If we are found to have violated the FCPA, we may be subject to criminal and civil penalties and other remedial measures, which could materially harm our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
     The Company operates in a number of jurisdictions that pose an elevated risk of potential violations under the FCPA. As previously disclosed, the Company received requests from the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) in July 2007 and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in January 2008 relating to the Company’s utilization of the services of a freight forwarding and customs agent. In response to these requests, the Company is conducting an internal investigation. The DOJ and the SEC are conducting parallel investigations into possible violations of U.S. law by the Company, including the FCPA. In particular, the DOJ and SEC are investigating the Company’s use of customs and freight forwarding services agents in certain countries in which the Company currently operates or formerly operated, including Kazakhstan and Nigeria. The Company is fully cooperating with the DOJ and SEC investigations. At this point, we are unable to predict the duration, scope or result of the DOJ and SEC investigations or whether either agency will commence any legal action. If we are not in compliance with the FCPA and other laws governing the conduct of our business in international locations (including local laws), we may be subject to criminal and civil penalties and other remedial measures, which could have an adverse impact on our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
We are subject to laws and regulations concerning our international operations, including export restrictions and U.S. economic sanctions. We are conducting an internal review concerning our compliance with export restrictions and U.S. economic sanctions. If we are not in compliance with applicable legal requirements, we may be subject to civil or criminal penalties and other remedial measures, which could materially harm our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
     Our international operations are subject to economic sanctions laws and regulations restricting certain activities involving countries, entities and persons on which the U.S. has imposed economic sanctions. Pursuant to a recent internal review, we have preliminarily identified certain shipments of equipment and supplies that were routed through Iran. In addition, we have engaged in drilling wells in the Korpedje Field in Turkmenistan, from where natural gas may be exported by pipeline to Iran. We are currently reviewing these shipments and drilling activities to determine whether the timing, nature and extent of such shipments or drilling activities may have given rise to violations of these laws and regulations. Although we are unable to predict the scope or result of this internal review or its ultimate outcome, we have initiated a voluntary disclosure of these potential compliance issues to the appropriate U.S. government agency. Any violations of these laws and regulations, including restrictions on routes of shipping and drilling activities, could adversely affect our reputation and the market for our shares, and may require certain of our investors to disclose their investment in our Company under certain state laws. If we are not in compliance with export restrictions and U.S. economic sanctions, we may be subject to civil or criminal penalties and other remedial measures, which could have an adverse impact on our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
