Granite has grown through direct participation on its multiple well drilling programs, and through 1031 exchanges from other ‘real estate’ based assets. As we continue to acquire leases in Texas, drill wells in Oklahoma, and move towards exploration on our Escavada prospect in New Mexico, we wanted to keep the company properly structured to deliver the most value to our shareholders.
