Organization, Ownership and Business
Brenham Oil & Gas, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Texas in November 1997 and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of American International Industries, Inc. ("American") in November 1997. On April 21, 2010, the Company was re-domiciled in Nevada as Brenham Oil & Gas Corp. and Brenham Oil & Gas, Inc. became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brenham. American was issued 64,977,093 shares of common stock of Brenham in connection with the reorganization in exchange for all shares outstanding of Brenham Oil & Gas, Inc. The reorganization has been retroactively applied to the consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.
We have an oil and gas mineral royalty interest covering a twenty-four acre tract of land located in Washington County, Texas, which is carried on the balance sheet at $0. The royalty interest is currently leased by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for a term continuing until the covered minerals are no longer produced in paying quantities from the leased premises. In July 2011, we purchased unproved property.
Royalties on the minerals produced are currently incidental and paid to Brenham as follows: (i) for oil and other liquid hydrocarbons, and (ii) for gas (including casing-head gas), the royalty is one-sixth of the net proceeds realized by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation on the sale thereof, less a proportionate part of ad valorem taxes and production, severance, or other excise taxes. In addition, Brenham is entitled to shut-in royalties of $1 per acre of land for every ninety day period within which one or more of the wells in leased premises, or lands pooled therewith, are capable of producing paying quantities, but such wells are either shut-in or production is not being sold. From November 7, 1997 (inception) through September 30, 2012, Brenham has received $111,647 in royalty income, which is in revenue in the consolidated statement of operations.
Brenham is an exploration stage company and will continue to be so until commencement of substantial production from its oil and gas operations.
