The Company is in the process of completing its audited financial statements, and believes that the subject Annual Report will be available for filing on or before April 14, 2017.

PART IV — OTHER INFORMATION

(1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification

Daniel F. Hutchins 913 948-9512
(Name) (Area Code) (Telephone Number)

(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s). Yes [X ] No [  ]
(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof? Yes [X] No [  ]

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

We anticipate that our results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2016 will reflect a smaller net loss or net income compared to the $10,996,243 net loss for the year ended December 31, 2015. We are presently unable to make a reasonable estimate of the quantity of the anticipated change, however.

The net income (loss) for the year ended December 31, 2016 is not expected to include any impairment charge related to our investment in oil and gas properties consisting of our Nicaraguan Offshore Concessions. For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded an impairment charge on oil and gas properties totaling $9,720,666 related to our Nicaraguan Offshore Concessions primarily due to technical defaults under the Concession agreements and the current environment in general for oil and gas development projects in particular for projects in otherwise unproven regions of the world such as Nicaragua. The Company reported a net loss totaling $10,996,243 for the year ended December 31, 2015. Finally, due to our liquidity position, our auditors have informed us that their opinion will include a going concern qualification.

Forward-Looking Statements

The Company cautions that any forward-looking statements as such term is defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “ Securities Act ”), and Section 21E of the Exchange Act contained in this Form 12b-25 involve risks and uncertainties and are subject to change based on various important factors. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to impairment of our investment in oil and gas properties related to our Nicaraguan Offshore Concessions, the timing and outcome of the completion of the audit of our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2016, the timing of the filing of the Form 10-K and changes to the Company’s results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2016 as compared to December 31, 2015. Actual results or outcomes may differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements as a result of risks and uncertainties, which include, without limitation, risks and uncertainties associated with changes in expected financials results based on the completion of financial closing procedures and the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2016, additional delays with respect to completing the financial statements, and other risks detailed in the Company’s filings with the SEC. Any forward-looking statement in this Form 12b-25 speaks only as of the date of this Form 12b-25.
