PROSPECTUS
ROCKDALE RESOURCES CORPORATION

2,000 Units
$5,000 per Unit

Rockdale Resources Corporation, is offering up to 2,000 Units to the public. Each Unit consists of 500 Microbonds, with each Microbond in the principal amount of $10, and 2,500 Series A warrants.

The Microbonds will bear interest at 12% per year, payable monthly, will mature on _____, 2017 and are convertible into shares of our common stock, initially at a conversion price of $2.00 per share. The Microbonds will be secured by any oil or gas wells drilled, completed or acquired with the proceeds from this offering. Under certain circumstances, and upon 20 days notice, we may prepay the Microbonds.

Each Series A warrant entitles its holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $2.00 per share at any time until their expiration on the fifth anniversary of the date of this prospectus. Under certain circumstances we may accelerate the expiration date of the warrants.

This prospectus also relates to 5,000,000 shares of common stock which we may issue upon any conversion of the Microbonds and   5,000,000 shares of common stock which we may issue upon any exercise of the Series A warrants.

This offering is on a “best efforts”, basis and there  is no  minimum number of units which are required to be sold in this offering. We will not pay any commissions or other form of remuneration in connection with the sale of the Units.

Our common stock is traded on the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol “BBLS”. On October 10, 2012 the closing price for our common stock was $1.33.  Prior to this offering, there has been no public market for our Microbonds or Series A warrants, although we anticipate that the Microbonds and Series A warrants will be quoted on the OTC QX after the date of this prospectus. As of November 30, 2012 , an application to have the Microbonds and Series A warrants quoted on the OTC QX had not been filed with FINRA. There will not be any public market for the Units and the Units will not trade separately.

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should purchase our securities only if you can afford a complete loss of your investment. We have not yet been profitable and have a history of losses. See ‘‘Risk Factors’ beginning on page 4 for matters you should consider before buying our securities.

NEITHER THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION NOR ANY STATE SECURITIES COMMISSION HAS APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED OF THESE SECURITIES OR PASSED UPON THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS PROSPECTUS. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.

This summary highlights information contained elsewhere in this prospectus. It does not contain all of the information you should consider before purchasing our units. Therefore, you should read the prospectus in its entirety, including the risk factors and the financial statements and related footnotes appearing elsewhere in this prospectus. References to ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ ‘‘our,’’ ‘‘Rockdale’’ or ‘‘the company’’ generally refer to Rockdale Resources Corporation, a Colorado corporation.

We are an early-stage independent energy company engaged in the acquisition and development of leases in or near established oil-producing areas. We plan to build our cash flow and oil reserves through a focused acquisition and development program by:

·  
initially focusing our operations in east Texas;

·  
drilling in areas which have a high proportion of oil relative to natural gas; and

·  
lessening risk by concentrating on established areas with proven production;

Although we have been in operation for a relatively short period of time, we have raised approximately $4,000,000 in capital as of the date of prospectus.

With the proceeds from this offering, we plan to drill, and if warranted, complete oil wells in the Minerva-Rockdale Field.

The wells will be drilled to sufficient depths to test the shallow Navarro B formation (approximate depth of 1,800 feet).  Each well will cost $210,000, and will take approximately seven days to drill and complete.  We will use Kingman Operating Company to supervise the drilling and completion operations.

The Minerva-Rockdale Field, which is located approximately 30 miles Northeast of Austin, was first discovered in 1921 and is approximately 50 square miles in size. The main producing formation for this field is the Upper Cretaceous Navarro Group of sands and shales. The Navarro is typically subdivided into several producing zones from the uppermost “A” and “B” sands to the lower “C” and “D” sands. The “B” sand is the primary producing zone. These sands are commonly fine grained and poorly sorted and were deposited close to a shoreline during a cycle of marine regression.

As of September 30, 2012 we had drilled and completed five oil wells, we were in the process of completing one well and we had identified drilling sites for forty additional wells on our lease in the Rockdale-Minerva Field;

We also plan to acquire additional leases in or adjacent to the Rockdale-Minerva Field or in other areas of East Texas. We believe that, based on past field production, geology, and our actual experience with the oil wells on our Rockdale-Minerva leases, there is an opportunity for the drilling of a number of additional oil wells on our leases.

We were incorporated in Colorado in 2002. Our executive offices are located at 11044 Research Blvd., Suite A-200, Austin, Texas 78759. Our telephone number is (512) 795-2300. We do not have a website.

Risk factors
Investing in our securities involves significant risks, including, but not limited to, the following: our limited operating history and history of losses; our lack of full-time management; our limited number of operating wells and lack of diversification; and price volatility in oil markets. You should carefully consider the information set forth in the ‘‘Risk Factors’’ section of this prospectus prior to investing in our securities.

(1)  
An application  will be made to have our Notes and Series A warrants quoted on the OTC QX. Based upon discussions with the staff of the OTC QX, we believe our Notes and Series A warrants will be approved for quotation shortly after the date of this Prospectus. When we are notified that our Notes and Series A warrants have been approved for quotation, we will also be notified as to the trading symbols that have been assigned to these securities. The Microbonds and Series A warrants will trade separately immediately after they have been approved for  quotation.  Once assigned, the trading symbols will be available on the OTC QX website (www.OTCQX.com). However, there is nevertheless the risk that our  Microbonds and Series A warrants may not be quoted on the OTC QX or that the quotation of these securities may be delayed. See the risk factor on page 6 of this prospectus entitled ‘‘There is no public market for our Microbonds or Series A warrants and an active market may not develop or be maintained, which could limit your ability to sell these securities.’’

(2)  
The number of shares of common stock outstanding after this offering is based on  17,539,748 shares outstanding as of the date of this prospectus. This number does not include shares of common stock that may become outstanding as a result of the conversion of the Microbonds (5,000,000 shares maximum) or the exercise of the Series A warrants (5,000,000 shares maximum) sold in this offering, assuming all Units offered are sold.
 
 
 
 
 
Forward Looking Statements

This prospectus contains various forward-looking statements that are based on our belief as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to us.  When used in this prospectus, the words "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "estimate" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  Such statements may include statements regarding and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions which could cause actual results to differ materially from projections or estimates.  Factors which could cause actual results to differ materially are discussed at length under the heading “Risk Factors”.  Should one or more of the enumerated risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected.  Investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, all of which speak only as of the date made.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
RISK FACTORS

Investors should be aware that this offering involves certain risks, including those described below, which could adversely affect the value of our common stock.  We do not make, nor has it authorized any other person to make, any representation about the future market value of our common stock.  In addition to the other information contained in this prospectus, the following factors should be considered carefully in evaluating an investment in our common stock.

We are in the development stage and may never be profitable.

We have never earned a profit and we expect to incur losses during the foreseeable future and may never be profitable.  We will need to earn a profit or obtain additional financing until we are able to earn a profit. Our offering is being conducted on a “best efforts” basis.  There is no minimum number of Units which are required to be sold in this offering and all proceeds from the sold of the Units will be delivered to us.

           As a result of our short operating history it is difficult for potential investors to evaluate our business . There can be no assurance that we can implement our business plan, that we will be profitable, or that the securities which may be sold in this offering will have any value.

Our failure to obtain capital may significantly restrict our proposed operations.

We need additional capital to fund our operating losses and to commence business. If only a small number of Units are sold, the amount received from this offering may provide little benefit to us.  Even if all Units offered are sold, we may need additional capital.

We do not know what the terms of any future capital raising may be but any future sale of our equity securities would dilute the ownership of existing stockholders and could be at prices substantially lower than the conversion price of the Microbonds or the exercise price of the Series A warrants.  Our failure to obtain the capital which we require will result in the slower implementation of our business plan or our inability to implement our business plan.  There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain any capital which we will need.

We may be unable to pay the Microbonds sold in this offering or the interest on the Microbonds.

As of the date of this prospectus we were operating at a loss. If all Units offered are sold, we will be required to make interest payments of $1,200,000 each year to the holders of our Microbonds. If our drilling program is not successful, we will be unable to make interest or principal payments on the Microbonds.

Oil and gas exploration is not an exact science, and involves a high degree of risk, including the risk that we may drill wells that are not productive at all, or wells which may not produce oil in sufficient amounts so as to make our business profitable.

The primary risk of oil and gas exploration lies in the drilling of dry holes or drilling and completing wells which, though productive, do not produce gas and/or oil in sufficient amounts to return the amounts expended and produce a profit.  Hazards, such as unusual or unexpected formation pressures, down hole fires, blowouts, loss of circulation of drilling fluids and other conditions are involved in drilling and completing oil and gas wells and, if such hazards are encountered, completion of any well may be substantially delayed or prevented.  In addition, adverse weather conditions can hinder or delay operations, as can shortages of equipment and materials or unavailability of drilling, completion, and/or work-over rigs.  Even though a well is completed and is found to be productive, water and/or other substances may be encountered in the well, which may impair or prevent production or marketing of oil or gas from the well.

Exploratory drilling involves substantially greater economic risks than development drilling because the percentage of wells completed as producing wells is usually less than in development drilling.  Exploratory drilling itself can be of varying degrees of risk and can generally be divided into higher risk attempts to discover a reservoir in a completely unproven area or relatively lower risk efforts in areas not too distant from existing reservoirs.  While exploration adjacent to or near existing reservoirs may be more likely to result in the discovery of oil and gas than in completely unproven areas, exploratory efforts are nevertheless high risk activities.

Although the completion of oil and gas wells is, to a certain extent, less risky than drilling for oil and gas, the process of completing an oil or gas well is nevertheless associated with considerable risk.  In addition, even if a well is completed as a producer, the well for a variety of reasons may not produce sufficient oil or gas in order to repay our investment in the well.
 
 
The acquisition, exploration and development of oil and gas properties, and the production and sale of oil and gas are subject to many factors which are outside our control.

These factors include, among others, general economic conditions, proximity to pipelines, oil import quotas, supply, demand, and price of other fuels and the regulation of production, refining, transportation, pricing, marketing and taxation by federal, state, and local governmental authorities.

Interests that we may acquire in oil and gas properties may be subject to royalty and overriding royalty interests, liens incident to operating agreements, liens for current taxes and other burdens and encumbrances, easements and other restrictions, any of which may subject us to future undetermined expenses.

We do not intend to purchase title insurance, title memos, or title certificates for any leasehold interests we will acquire.  It is possible that at some point we will have to undertake title work involving substantial costs.  In addition, it is possible that we may suffer title failures resulting in significant losses.

The drilling of oil and gas wells involves hazards such as blowouts, unusual or unexpected formations, pressures or other conditions which could result in substantial losses or liabilities to third parties.

Although we intend to acquire adequate insurance, or to be named as an insured under coverage acquired by others (e.g., the driller or operator), we may not be insured against all such losses because such insurance may not be available, premium costs may be deemed unduly high, or for other reasons.  Accordingly, uninsured liabilities to third parties could result in the loss of our funds or property.

Our operations will be affected from time to time and in varying degrees by political developments and federal and state laws and regulations regarding the development, production and sale of crude oil and natural gas.

Federal and state laws and regulations require permits for drilling of wells and also cover the spacing of wells, the prevention of waste, and other matters.  Rates of production of oil and gas have for many years been subject to federal and state conservation laws and regulations and the petroleum industry is subject to federal tax laws.  In addition, the production of oil or gas may be interrupted or terminated by governmental authorities due to ecological and other considerations.  Compliance with these regulations may require a significant capital commitment by and expense to us and may delay or otherwise adversely affect our proposed operations.

From time to time legislation has been proposed relating to various conservation and other measures designed to decrease dependence on foreign oil.  No prediction can be made as to what additional legislation may be proposed or enacted.  Oil and gas producers may face increasingly stringent regulation in the years ahead and a general hostility towards the oil and gas industry on the part of a portion of the public and of some public officials.  Future regulation will probably be determined by a number of economic and political factors beyond the control of the Company or the oil and gas industry.

Our activities will be subject to existing federal and state laws and regulations governing environmental quality and pollution control.

Compliance with environmental requirements and reclamation laws imposed by federal, state, and local governmental authorities may necessitate significant capital outlays and may materially affect our earnings, if any.  It is impossible to predict the impact of environmental legislation and regulations (including regulations restricting access and surface use) on our operations in the future although compliance may necessitate significant capital outlays, materially affect our earning power or cause material changes in our intended business.  In addition, we may be exposed to potential liability for pollution and other damages.
 
There is no public market for our Microbonds or Series A warrants and an active market may not develop or be maintained, which could limit your ability to sell these securities.
 
The Microbonds and Series A warrants may  never be quoted on the OTC QX  or quotation of these securities may be delayed .
 
As of the date of this prospectus there was only a limited market for our common stock and, if a public market does not continue, investors in this offering, should they elect to convert their notes and/or exercise their warrants, may be unable to sell their shares.

If shareholders are unable to sell their shares, shareholders may never be able to recover any amounts which they paid for our securities.

In addition, the price of our common stock, included as a component of the Units, may be negatively impacted since there is no minimum number of Units which are required to be sold in this offering.
 
The Microbonds and Series A warrants may  never be quoted on the OTC QX  or quotation of these securities may be delayed.

Because there is only a limited public market for our common stock, the price for the securities we are offering was arbitrarily established, does not bear any relationship to our assets, book value or net worth, and may be greater than the price which investors in this offering may receive when they resell their shares.

Accordingly, the offering price of our securities should not be considered to be any indication of the value of our securities.  The factors considered in determining the offering price included our future prospects and the likely trading future price for our common stock.

Disclosure requirements pertaining to penny stocks may reduce the level of trading activity in the market for our common stock and investors may find it difficult to sell their shares.

Trades of our common stock are subject to Rule 15g-9 of the Securities and Exchange Commission, which rule imposes certain requirements on broker/dealers who sell securities subject to the rule to persons other than established customers and accredited investors.  For transactions covered by the rule, brokers/dealers must make a special suitability determination for purchasers of the securities and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction prior to sale.  The Securities and Exchange Commission also has rules that regulate broker/dealer practices in connection with transactions in "penny stocks".  Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in that security is provided by the exchange or system).  The penny stock rules require a broker/ dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the Commission that provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market.  The broker/dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker/dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account.  The bid and offer quotations, and the broker/dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer's confirmation.

Consequently, the penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to sell shares of common stock and may affect the ability of shareholders to sell their shares in the secondary market, as compliance with such rules may delay and/or preclude certain trading transactions.  The rules could also have an adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.  These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for our common stock.  Many brokers may be unwilling to engage in transactions in our common stock because of the added disclosure requirements, thereby making it more difficult for shareholders to dispose of their shares.  You may also find it difficult to obtain accurate information about, and/or quotations as to the price of our common stock.

Our articles of incorporation and bylaws could discourage acquisition proposals, delay a change in control or prevent other transactions.

Provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws, as well as provisions of the Colorado Business Corporation Act, may discourage, delay or prevent a change in control of our company or other transactions that you as a shareholder may consider favorable and may be in your best interest.  Our articles of incorporation and bylaws contain provisions that:
 
 
 
authorize the issuance of shares of “blank check” preferred stock that could be issued by our board of directors to increase the number of outstanding shares and discourage a takeover attempt;
 
 
limit who may call special meetings of shareholders; and
 
 
require advance notice for business to be conducted at shareholder meetings.

 
Our directors have the authority to issue common and preferred shares without shareholder approval, and preferred shares can be issued with such rights, preferences, and limitations as may be determined by our board of directors.  The rights of the holders of common stock will be subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of any holders of preferred stock that may be issued in the future.  We presently have no commitments or contracts to issue any shares of preferred stock.  Authorized and unissued preferred stock could delay, discourage, hinder or preclude an unsolicited acquisition of our company, could make it less likely that shareholders receive a premium for their shares as a result of any such attempt, and could adversely affect the market prices of, and the voting and other rights, of the holders of outstanding shares of our common stock.

We do not intend to pay any cash dividends on our common stock.

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future.  Prospective investors should not purchase these securities with any view toward the receipt of dividends.

Your ownership could be diluted by future issuances of our stock, options, warrants or other securities.
 
           Your ownership in our company may be diluted by future issuances of capital stock or the exercise of outstanding or to be issued options, warrants or convertible notes to purchase capital stock.  In particular, we may sell securities in the future in order to finance operations, expansions or particular projects or expenditures without obtaining the approval of the holders of our common stock.
 
DILUTION AND COMPARATIVE SHARE DATA

Upon any conversion of the Microbonds, the  interest of the holder of the Microbond will be diluted to the extent of the difference between the conversion price of the Microbonds (assumed to be $2.00 for purposes of the tables below) and the pro forma net tangible book value per share of our common stock upon the completion of this offering.

The following table illustrates the dilution to investors in this offering, as well as their percentage ownership of our common stock. For purposes of the dilution calculations it was assumed that all Units offered by means of this prospectus are sold and all Microbonds sold are converted into shares of our common stock. If less than all Units offered are sold, the dilution to investors in this offering will be greater and their percentage ownership will be less than that shown in the table.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATION

We were incorporated in Colorado in January 2002.

We planned to sell custom framed artwork, art accessories, and interior design consulting. However, we generated only limited revenue since inception and have been inactive since 2008.

In February 2012 we decided it would be in the best interests of our shareholders to no longer pursue our original business plan and, instead, to become active in the exploration and development of oil and gas properties.

Results of Operations

During the year ended December 31, 2011:

·  
Legal and Accounting expenses increased from the prior period as we changed auditors in late 2010. Our new auditors charged more than our previous auditor for reviewing our 10-Q reports and auditing our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010; and

·  
General and Administrative expenses increased from the prior period due to the costs associated with adding Interactive Data Files to our website and 1934 Act reports.
 
 
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012:
 
·  
Oil and gas sales and lease operating expenses increased as our first wells began producing;
 
·  
Bad debt expense resulted from the write-off of a receivable that we determined was no longer collectible,
 
·  
General and Administrative expenses increased as a result of our transition to an oil and gas company,
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the twelve months ended December 31, 2011:

·  
our operations used cash of $16,674, and
 
·  
we repaid $1,700, net of new advances received, to related parties.

In April 2012 we sold 1,000,000 shares of our common stock to a group of private investors for $51,250.

In April 2012 we sold 8,367,850 shares of our common stock to our officers, directors and private investors for $173,902.
 
Between April 1, 2012 and September 30, 2012 we sold 5,781,798 shares of our common stock, at a price of $0.70 per share, to a group of private investors.

The amounts which we plan to spend during the twelve month period following the date of this prospectus will depend on the amount we are able to raise in this offering. See “Use of Proceeds” for further information.

See the “Business” section of this prospectus for more detailed information concerning our plan of operation.

   We plan to generate profits by drilling productive oil or gas wells.  However, we will need to raise the funds required to drill new wells through the sale of our securities, from loans from third parties or from third parties willing to pay our share of drilling and completing the wells.  We do not have any commitments or arrangements from any person to provide us with any additional capital.  If additional financing is not available when needed, we may need to cease operations.  We may not be successful in raising the capital needed to drill oil or gas wells.  Any wells which we may drill may not be productive of oil or gas.
 
The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a large working capital deficit. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company may raise additional capital through the sale of its equity securities, through offerings of debt securities, or through borrowings from financial institutions. Management believes that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonable likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, results of operations, liquidity or capital resources.

Trends Affecting Future Operations

The factors that will most significantly affect our results of operations will be (i) the sale prices of crude oil and natural gas, (ii) the amount of production from oil or gas wells in which we have an interest, and (iii) lease operating expenses.  Our revenues will also be significantly impacted by our ability to maintain or increase oil or gas production through exploration and development activities.

It is expected that our principal source of cash flow will be from the production and sale of crude oil and natural gas reserves which are depleting assets.  Cash flow from the sale of oil and gas production depends upon the quantity of production and the price obtained for the production.  An increase in prices will permit us to finance our operations to a greater extent with internally generated funds, may allow us to obtain equity financing more easily or on better terms, and lessens the difficulty of obtaining financing. However, price increases heighten the competition for oil and gas prospects, increase the costs of exploration and development, and, because of potential price declines, increase the risks associated with the purchase of producing properties during times that prices are at higher levels.

A decline in oil and gas prices (i) will reduce the cash flow internally generated by the Company which in turn will reduce the funds available for exploring for and replacing oil and gas reserves, (ii) will increase the difficulty of obtaining equity and debt financing and worsen the terms on which such financing may be obtained, (iii) will reduce the number of oil and gas prospects which have reasonable economic terms, (iv) may cause us to permit leases to expire based upon the value of potential oil and gas reserves in relation to the costs of exploration, (v) may result in marginally productive oil and gas wells being abandoned as non-commercial, and (vi) may increase the difficulty of obtaining financing.  However, price declines reduce the competition for oil and gas properties and correspondingly reduce the prices paid for leases and prospects.

Other than the foregoing, we do not know of any trends, events or uncertainties that will have, or are reasonably expected to have, a material impact on our sales, revenues or expenses.

Critical Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
See Note 1 to the financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 included as part of this prospectus for a description of our critical accounting policies and the potential impact of the adoption of any new accounting pronouncements.


Background

We were incorporated in Colorado in January 2002.

We planned to sell custom framed artwork, art accessories, and interior design consulting. However, we generated only limited revenue since inception and have been inactive since 2008.

In February 2012 we decided it would be in the best interests of our shareholders to no longer pursue our original business plan and, instead, to become active in the exploration and development of oil and gas properties. In furtherance of our business plan, the following took place:
 
·  
Shareholders, including our former officers and directors, sold 9,125,500 shares of our common stock to an unrelated third party.  The unrelated third party the sold the shares to us for $9,126 .
 
·  
In April 2012 we sold 1,000,000 shares of our common stock to a group of private investors for $51,250.
 
·  
In April 2012 we sold 8,367,850 shares of our common stock to our officers, directors and private investors for $173,902.
 
 
 
·  
We changed our name to Rockdale Resources Corporation.
 
·  
Between April 1, 2012 and September 30, 2012 we sold 5,781,798 shares of our common stock, at a price of $0.70 per share, to a group of private investors.
 
Plan of Operation

We plan to evaluate undeveloped oil and gas prospects and participate in drilling activities on those prospects which, in the opinion of management, are favorable for the production of oil or gas.  If, through our review, a geographical area indicates geological and economic potential, we will attempt to acquire leases or other interests in the area.  We may then attempt to sell portions of our leasehold interests in a prospect to third parties, thus sharing the risks and rewards of the exploration and development of the prospect with the other owners.  One or more wells may be drilled on a prospect, and if the results indicate the presence of sufficient oil and gas reserves, additional wells may be drilled on the prospect.

Our strategy is to acquire other similar prospects in or adjacent to existing fields with further development potential and minimum risk in the same area.

We may also:

·  
acquire a working interest in one or more prospects from others and participate with the other working interest owners in drilling, and if warranted, completing oil or gas wells on a prospect, or
 
·  
purchase producing oil or gas properties.

Our activities will primarily be dependent upon available financing.
 
Oil and gas leases are considered real property.  Title to properties which we may acquire will be subject to  landowner’s royalties, overriding  royalties, carried,  working and other similar interests and contractual arrangements customary in the oil and gas industry, to liens for current taxes not yet due, liens for amounts owing to persons operating wells, and to other encumbrances.  As is customary in the industry, in the case of undeveloped properties little investigation of record title will be made at the time of acquisition (other than a preliminary review of local records).  However, drilling title opinions may be obtained before commencement of drilling operations.
 
With the proceeds from this offering, and assuming all Units offered are sold we plan to drill, and if warranted, complete, up to 35 oil wells in the Minerva-Rockdale Field.

Minerva-Rockdale Field

The Minerva-Rockdale Field, which is located approximately 30 miles Northeast of Austin, was first discovered in 1921 and is approximately 50 square miles in size. The main producing formation for this field is the Upper Cretaceous Navarro Group of sands and shales. The Navarro is typically subdivided into several producing zones from the uppermost “A” and “B” sands to the lower “C” and “D” sands. The “B” sand is the primary producing zone. These sands are commonly fine grained and poorly sorted and were deposited close to a shoreline during a cycle of marine regression.

In April 2012 we entered into an agreement with Kingman Operating Company, Inc. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement as amended :
 
·  
we paid Kingman $475,000 for the assignment of a 100% working interest (75% net revenue interest) in an oil and gas lease covering 200 acres in the Minerva-Rockdale field.
 
·  
we paid Kingman $1,375,000 to drill and complete our first five wells.
 
·  
we paid Kingman $150,000 to drill and complete our sixth well. We are in the process of completing this well.   Additional costs may be incurred in order to fracture or stimulate this well.
 
·  
we will pay Kingman $150,000 to drill and complete any additional wells on the 200 acre lease.
 
·  
at any time on or before November 1, 2012 we  had the right to acquire a 100% working interest (75% net revenue interest) in a lease covering 300 acres,   for $1,200,000.   On November 7, 2012 the agreement with Kingman was amended such that we issued Kingman 400,000 shares of our restricted common stock, valued at $280,000, for the option to acquire the lease for $920,000  at any time on or before January 31, 2012.  If we acquire this lease, which  is immediately adjacent to the 200 acre lease referred to above, we will pay Kingman $150,000 to drill and complete any wells which we choose to drill on the lease, provided we commit to drilling multiple wells.
 
The cost to drill and complete the first five wells on the 200 acre lease was $275,000 per well.  The cost to drill and complete the sixth well on the 200 acre lease was $150,000, since it was not fractured or otherwise stimulated.  The cost to drill and complete any remaining wells on the 200 or 300 acre leases will be $150,000 per well, provided we commit to drilling multiple wells, as Kingman has negotiated a lower price from drilling contractors.
 
 
The wells will be drilled to sufficient depths to test the shallow Navarro B formation (approximate depth of 1,800 feet).  Each well will take approximately seven days to drill and complete.  Kingman will be the operator for the lease and will be paid $400 per month for each well we drill and complete.

The Minera-Rockdale field consists of 50 square miles of land.  The first well in the Minerva-Rockdale field came on producing 7 bbls/day in 1921.  As of November 30, 2012 there were over 14,000 wells drilled and the field has produced 8.5 million bbls of oil. The oil is light, paraffin base, and has a API gravity around 40 degrees. Water production in the “B” sands is very low.

If, in our sole discretion, the estimated future production from wells drilled on the leases in the Rockdale Field does not warrant further drilling, we plan to drill wells in other areas.

Michael D. Smith, one of our officers and directors, is an officer and director of Kingman Energy, LLC. Kingman Operating Company, Inc.  is controlled by Kingman Energy.

As of  November 30, 2012 we had drilled and completed our first five oil wells.  As of November 30, 2012  these five wells were collectively producing 10 to 20 bbls of oil and 40 bbls of water per day.  We have identified drilling sites for forty additional wells on our lease in the Rockdale-Minerva Field.

During the period from our inception to December 31, 2011, we did not drill any oil or gas wells. As of December 31, 2011, we did not have any proven oil or gas reserves.

The following table shows, as of November 30, 2012 , our producing wells, developed acreage, and undeveloped acreage, excluding service (injection and disposal) wells:

Acres that are Held by Production remain in force so long as oil or gas is produced from one or more wells on the particular lease.  Leased acres that are not Held By Production require annual rental payments to maintain the lease until the first to occur of the following: the expiration of the lease or the time oil or gas is produced from one or more wells drilled on the leased acreage.  At the time oil or gas is produced from wells drilled on the leased acreage, the lease is considered to be Held by Production.

Government Regulation

           Various state and federal agencies regulate the production and sale of oil and natural gas.  All states in which we plan to operate impose restrictions on the drilling, production, transportation and sale of oil and natural gas.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (the “FERC”) regulates the interstate transportation and the sale in interstate commerce for resale of natural gas.  The FERC’s jurisdiction over interstate natural gas sales has been substantially modified by the Natural Gas Policy Act under which the FERC continued to regulate the maximum selling prices of certain categories of gas sold in "first sales" in interstate and intrastate commerce.
 
 
FERC has pursued policy initiatives that have affected natural gas marketing.  Most notable are (1) the large-scale divestiture of interstate pipeline-owned gas gathering facilities to affiliated or non-affiliated companies; (2) further development of rules governing the relationship of the pipelines with their marketing affiliates; (3) the publication of standards relating to the use of electronic bulletin boards and electronic data exchange by the pipelines to make available transaction information on a timely basis and to enable transactions to occur on a purely electronic basis; (4) further review of the role of the secondary market for released pipeline capacity and its relationship to open access service in the primary market; and (5) development of policy and promulgation of orders pertaining to its authorization of market-based rates (rather than traditional cost-of-service based rates) for transportation or transportation-related services upon the pipeline's demonstration of lack of market control in the relevant service market.  We do not know what effect the FERC’s other activities will have on the access to markets, the fostering of competition and the cost of doing business.

Our sale of oil and natural gas liquids will not be regulated and will be at market prices. The price received from the sale of these products will be affected by the cost of transporting the products to market.  Much of that transportation is through interstate common carrier pipelines.

           Federal, state, and local agencies have promulgated extensive rules and regulations applicable to the our oil and natural gas exploration, production and related operations.  Most states require permits for drilling operations, drilling bonds and the filing of reports concerning operations and impose other requirements relating to the exploration of oil and natural gas.  Many states also have statutes or regulations addressing conservation matters including provisions for the unitization or pooling of oil and natural gas properties, the establishment of maximum rates of production from oil and natural gas wells and the regulation of spacing, plugging and abandonment of such wells.  The statutes and regulations of some states limit the rate at which oil and natural gas is produced from our properties.  The federal and state regulatory burden on the oil and natural gas industry increases our cost of doing business and affects our profitability.  Because these rules and regulations are amended or reinterpreted frequently, we are unable to predict the future cost or impact of complying with those laws.

Competition and Marketing

           We will be faced with strong competition from many other companies and individuals engaged in the oil and gas business, many are very large, well established energy companies with substantial capabilities and established earnings records.  We will be at a competitive disadvantage in acquiring oil and gas prospects since we must compete with these individuals and companies, many of which have greater financial resources and larger technical staffs.  It is nearly impossible to estimate the number of competitors; however, it is known that there are a large number of companies and individuals in the oil and gas business.

Exploration for and production of oil and gas are affected by the availability of pipe, casing and other tubular goods and certain other oil field equipment including drilling rigs and tools.  We will depend upon independent drilling contractors to furnish rigs, equipment and tools to drill our wells.  Higher prices for oil and gas may result in competition among operators for drilling equipment, tubular goods and drilling crews which may affect our ability expeditiously to drill, complete, recomplete and work-over wells.

The market for oil and gas is dependent upon a number of factors beyond our control, which at times cannot be accurately predicted.  These factors include the proximity of wells to, and the capacity of, natural gas pipelines, the extent of competitive domestic production and imports of oil and gas, the availability of other sources of energy, fluctuations in seasonal supply and demand, and governmental regulation. In addition, there is always the possibility that new legislation may be enacted which would impose price controls or additional excise taxes upon crude oil or natural gas, or both.  Oversupplies of natural gas can be expected to recur from time to time and may result in the gas producing wells being shut-in.  Imports of natural gas may adversely affect the market for domestic natural gas.

The market price for crude oil is significantly affected by policies adopted by the member nations of Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries ("OPEC").  Members of OPEC establish prices and production quotas among themselves for petroleum products from time to time with the intent of controlling the current global supply and consequently price levels.  We are unable to predict the effect, if any, that OPEC or other countries will have on the amount of, or the prices received for, crude oil and natural gas.


Gas prices, which were once effectively determined by government regulations, are now largely influenced by competition.  Competitors in this market include producers, gas pipelines and their affiliated marketing companies, independent marketers, and providers of alternate energy supplies, such as residual fuel oil.  Changes in government regulations relating to the production, transportation and marketing of natural gas have also resulted in significant changes in the historical marketing patterns of the industry.  Generally, these changes have resulted in the abandonment by many pipelines of long-term contracts for the purchase of natural gas, the development by gas producers of their own marketing programs to take advantage of new regulations requiring pipelines to transport gas for regulated fees, and an increasing tendency to rely on short-term contracts priced at spot market prices.

Employment Agreements

Michael D. Smith

We may terminate the employment agreement at any time for cause, which means: (i) a willful act by Mr. Smith that is not in our financial best interest; (ii) a willful failure by Mr. Smith to follow the reasonable, prudent and lawful direction of our directors; or (iii) a failure by Mr. Smith to substantially perform his duties within 30 days after our demand for substantial performance.  If Mr. Smith’s employment is terminated for cause, we must pay him his full salary through the date of termination.

Mr. Smith may terminate his employment: for good reason.  “Good reason” means: (A) a change-in-control of the Company (i.e. the acquisition by which any person of more than 50% of our common stock, or a change in a majority of our directors which has not been approved by the incumbent directors); (B) our failure to comply with any material provision of the employment agreement which has not been cured within 10 days after notice of such noncompliance has been given by Mr. Smith; or (C) any termination of Mr. Smith’s employment other than for cause.

Subsequent to April 2012 Mr. Barton transferred 1,026,143 shares to unrelated third parties.

Oil and gas drilling ventures inevitably involve areas of activity in which conflicts of interest arise. As explained in the “Business’ section of this prospectus, we have an agreement with Kingman Operating Company which pertains to drilling, completing and operating wells on our behalf.  As consideration for amending an agreement pertaining a 300 acre lease in the Minevra-Rockdale field, we issued 400,000 shares of our restricted common stock to Kingman Operating Company.

Michael D. Smith, one of our officers and directors, is an officer and director of Kingman Energy, LLC. Kingman Operating Company is controlled by Kingman Energy.  Accordingly, the price we will pay for the oil and gas lease, and the price will pay for drilling and completing wells, may not be the result of arm’s length negotiations and may be higher than that which we could have obtained from unrelated third parties.

Although Kingman will not pay any of the costs required to drill, and if warranted, complete any wells which will be drilled with the proceeds from this prospectus, we will convey to Kingman a 10% working interest in the lease when we have recovered, from the net proceeds of the sale of any oil or gas produced from any wells drilled or completed on the lease, an amount equal to the cost of drilling, testing, completing, equipping and operating any wells on the lease. As a result, Kingman will have a conflict of interest in electing to complete wells since Kingman will have no financial risk if a well does not produce gas in commercial quantities.

Affiliates of Kingman own, or may acquire, leases which are adjacent to the leases we have acquired, or may acquire. Any wells which are completed as commercial wells could improve the value of the acreage held by these affiliates. In such an event, the affiliates would benefit in the increased value of their leasehold interests without bearing the expense or risk of drilling a well.

We have an agreement with Energy Capital Partners, LLC which provides that we will pay Energy Capital $18,000 a month for consulting with us concerning capital formation. In addition to providing consulting services, Energy Capital provides us, free of charge, with office space in Denver, Colorado. The consulting agreement expires on April 30, 2013. Energy Capital is controlled by John Barton.

We have an agreement which provides that we will pay a consultant $10,000 a month for consulting with us concerning capital formation. The consulting agreement expires on April 13, 2013.

We had an agreement with a consultant which provided us with investor relations services.  During the term of this agreement, which ended on October 23, 2012, we paid the consultant $20,000 in cash and we issued 30,000 shares of our restricted common stock to the consultant.

We have an agreement with a consultant which advises us in the area of capital formation.  During the twelve month term of this agreement, which expires on April 30, 2013, we have agreed to pay the consultant a fee of $10,000 per month.

With the exception of Energy Capital Partners, none of the consultants mentioned above are affiliated with us.
 
 
PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

By means of this prospectus we are offering up to 2,000 Units to the public at a price of $5,000 per Unit. Each unit consists of 500 Microbonds and 2,500 Series A warrants.

We are offering the Units on a “best efforts” basis.  We will not employ any brokers or sales agents to sell the Units and we will not compensate any officer or third party for their participation in this offering.  There is no firm commitment by any person to purchase any of the Units and there is no assurance that any Units offered will be sold.  All proceeds from the sale of the Units will be promptly delivered to us.  We plan to end the offering on _______.  However, we may at our discretion end the offering sooner or extend the offering to ________.
 
 
We have the right to refuse to accept subscriptions for Units from any person for any reason whatsoever.  No subscription shall be deemed to be binding upon us until accepted in writing by our President.
 
This prospectus also relates to 5,000,000 shares of common stock which we may issue upon any conversion of the Microbonds and 5,000,000 shares of common stock which we may issue upon any exercise of the Series A warrants.
 
Determination of Offering Price

The factors considered in determining the conversion price of the Microbonds and the exercise price of the Series A warrants included our future prospects in the oil and gas industry and the likely future trading price for our common stock.
 
Because there is only a limited public market for our common stock, the conversion price for the Microbonds and the exercise price of the Series A warrants does not bear any relationship to our assets, book value or net worth, and may be greater than the price which investors in this offering may receive upon the resale of any shares of our common stock.  The Microbonds and the exercise price of Series A warrants should not be considered to be any indication of the value of our common stock.
 
DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES

Units

By means of this prospectus we are offering Units at a price of $5,000 per unit. Each unit consists of 500 Microbonds, with each Microbond in the principal amount of $10, and 2,500 Series A warrants.

Microbonds

           The Microbonds we are offering by means of this Prospectus will be in the principal amount of $10, will bear interest at 12% per year, payable monthly, will mature in 2017, and will be convertible into shares of our common stock, initially at a conversion price of $2.00 per share.  The Conversion Price will be proportionately adjusted in the event of any stock split or capital reorganization.

However, at our option, and upon twenty days prior written notice given at any time one year after the date of this prospectus, we may prepay any outstanding Microbonds, if:

·  
our common stock has closed at a price which is at least twice the then applicable conversion price for at least ten consecutive trading days; and
 
·  
the average trading volume in our common stock has been at least 30,000 shares during the ten trading days.
 
In addition, at our option, and upon twenty days prior written notice, we may prepay any outstanding Microbonds if:

·  
at least 50% of our outstanding shares are acquired in a merger, share-for-share exchange, or similar transaction, and
 
·  
the amount received for one share of our common stock in the transaction, either in cash, fair value of securities or property, or any combination of cash, securities or property, is at least twice the then applicable conversion price.

The Microbonds will be secured by a first lien by any wells we drill and complete or acquire with the proceeds from this offering and will be secured by a second lien on all our other assets. The second lien will be subordinate to any borrowings, not to exceed $5,000,000, from a bank or similar financial institution.

           Any of the following are an event of default:
 
·  
We fail to make any interest or principal payment when due;
 
·  
We breach any representation, warranty or covenant or defaults in the timely performance of any other obligation in our agreements with the holders of the Microbonds and the breach or default continues uncured for a period of fifteen business days after the date on which notice of the breach or default is first given to us, or ten trading days after we become, or should have become, aware of such breach or default; and
 
·  
We file for protection from our creditors under the federal bankruptcy code, or a third party files an involuntary bankruptcy petition against us.
 

If an event of default occurs, the Microbonds will become immediately due and payable and the interest rate will increase to 18% on the outstanding principal.
 
Series A Warrants

Each Series A Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $2.00 per share.  The Series A Warrants will expire five years from the date of this prospectus.

However, at our option, and upon twenty days prior written notice, we may accelerate the expiration date of the Series A warrants if:

·  
our common stock has closed at a price which is at least twice the then applicable warrant exercise price for at least twenty consecutive trading days;
 
·  
the average trading volume in our common stock has been at least 30,000 shares during the ten trading days; and
 
·  
we have a current and effective registration statement available covering the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the warrants.

Other provisions of the Warrants are set forth below.  This information is subject to the provisions of the Warrant Certificate representing the Warrants.

1.         Unless exercised within the time provided for exercise, the Warrants will automatically expire.

2.         The exercise price of the Warrants may not be increased during the term of the Warrants, but the exercise price may be decreased at the discretion of our directors by giving each Warrant holder notice of such decrease.  The expiration date of the Warrants may be extended by our directors giving notice of such extension to each Warrant holder of record.

3.         There is no minimum number of shares which must be purchased upon exercise of the Warrants.

4.         The holders of the Warrants in certain instances are protected against dilution of their interests represented by the underlying shares of common stock upon the occurrence of stock dividends, stock splits, reclassifications, and mergers.

5.         The holders of the Warrants have no voting power and are not entitled to dividends.  In the event of our liquidation, dissolution, or winding up, holders of the Warrants will not be entitled to participate in the distribution of our assets.

Common Stock
 
We are authorized to issue 75,000,000 shares of common stock.  Holders of common stock are each entitled to cast one vote for each share held of record on all matters presented to shareholders.  Cumulative voting is not allowed; hence, the holders of a majority of the outstanding common stock can elect all directors.

Holders of common stock are entitled to receive such dividends as may be declared by the Board of Directors out of funds legally available therefore and, in the event of liquidation, to share pro rata in any distribution of the Company’s assets after payment of liabilities.  The board is not obligated to declare a dividend.  It is not anticipated that dividends will be paid in the foreseeable future.

Holders of common stock do not have preemptive rights to subscribe to additional shares if issued by the Company.  There are no conversion, redemption, sinking fund or similar provisions regarding the common stock.  
 
Preferred Stock

We are authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock.  Shares of preferred stock may be issued from time to time in one or more series as may be determined by our Board of Directors.  The voting powers and preferences, the relative rights of each such series and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions of each series will be established by the Board of Directors.  Our directors may issue preferred stock with multiple votes per share and dividend rights which would have priority over any dividends paid with respect to the holders of our Common Stock.  The issuance of preferred stock with these rights may make the removal of management difficult even if the removal would be considered beneficial to shareholders generally, and will have the effect of limiting shareholder participation in transactions such as mergers or tender offers if these transactions are not favored by our management.  As of the date of this Memorandum offering memorandum we had not issued any shares of preferred stock.

INDEMNIFICATION

Our Bylaws authorize indemnification of a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company against expenses incurred by him in connection with any action, suit, or proceeding to which he is named a party by reason of his having acted or served in such capacity, except for liabilities arising from his own misconduct or negligence in performance of his duty.  In addition, even a director, officer, employee, or agent of the Company’ who was found liable for misconduct or negligence in the performance of his duty may obtain such indemnification if, in view of all the circumstances in the case, a court of competent jurisdiction determines such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification.  Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers, or persons controlling the Company’ pursuant to the foregoing provisions, the Company has been informed that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is therefore unenforceable.

           DEVELOPED ACREAGE. The number of acres that are allocated or assignable to productive wells or wells capable of production.

           DISPOSAL WELL. A well employed for the reinjection of salt water produced with oil into an underground formation.

           INJECTION WELL. A well employed for the injection into an underground formation of water, gas or other fluid to maintain underground pressures which would otherwise be reduced by the production of oil or gas.

           LANDOWNER'S ROYALTY. A percentage share of production, or the value derived from production, which is granted to the lessor or landowner in the oil and gas lease, and which is free of the costs of drilling, completing, and operating an oil or gas well.

           LEASE. Full or partial interests in an oil and gas lease, authorizing the owner thereof to drill for, reduce to possession and produce oil and gas upon payment of rentals, bonuses and/or royalties. Oil and gas leases are generally acquired from private landowners and federal and state governments. The term of an oil and gas lease typically ranges from three to ten years and requires annual lease rental payments of $1.00 to $2.00 per acre. If a producing oil or gas well is drilled on the lease prior to the expiration of the lease, the lease will generally remain in effect until the oil or gas production from the well ends. The owner of the lease is required to pay the owner of the leased property a royalty which is usually between 12.5% and 16.6% of the gross amount received from the sale of the oil or gas produced from the well.

           LEASE OPERATING EXPENSES. The expenses of producing oil or gas from a formation, consisting of the costs incurred to operate and maintain wells and related equipment and facilities, including labor costs, repair and maintenance, supplies, insurance, production, severance and other production excise taxes.

           NET ACRES OR WELLS. A net well or acre is deemed to exist when the sum of fractional ownership working interests in gross wells or acres equals one. The number of net wells or acres is the sum of the fractional working interests owned in gross wells or acres expressed as whole numbers and fractions.

           OVERRIDING ROYALTY. A percentage share of production, or the value derived from production, which is free of all costs of drilling, completing and operating an oil or gas well, and is created by the lessee or working interest owner and paid by the lessee or working interest owner to the owner of the overriding royalty.

           PRODUCING PROPERTY. A property (or interest therein) producing oil or gas in commercial quantities or that is shut-in but capable of producing oil or gas in commercial quantities. Interests in a property may include working interests, production payments, royalty interests and other non-working interests.

           PROSPECT. An area in which a party owns or intends to acquire one or more oil and gas interests, which is geographically defined on the basis of geological data and which is reasonably anticipated to contain at least one reservoir of oil, gas or other hydrocarbons.

           PROVED RESERVES. Proved oil and gas reserves are the estimated quantities of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids which geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions (prices and costs held constant as of the date the estimate is made).

           SHUT-IN WELL. A well which is capable of producing oil or gas but which is temporarily not producing due to mechanical problems or a lack of market for the well's oil or gas.
 
 
           UNDEVELOPED ACREAGE. Lease acres on which wells have not been drilled or completed to a point that would permit the production of commercial quantities of oil and gas regardless of whether or not such acreage contains proved reserves.

           WORKING INTEREST. A percentage of ownership in an oil and gas lease granting its owner the right to explore, drill and produce oil and gas from a tract of property. Working interest owners are obligated to pay a corresponding percentage of the cost of leasing, drilling, producing and operating a well. After royalties are paid, the working interest also entitles its owner to share in production revenues with other working interest owners, based on the percentage of the working interest owned.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors of
Rockdale Resources (formerly Art Design, Inc.)
Englewood. CO
 
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Rockdale Resources Corporation (formerly Art Design, Inc.) (the “Company”), as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the related statements of expenses, stockholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for each of the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has not generated revenue and has a working capital deficit. These conditions raise  substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in this regard are described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2011 and 2010
 
NOTE 1.
ORGANIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Art Design, Inc. (“we”, “our” or the “Company”), was incorporated in the State of Colorado on January 16, 2002. The Company sells art work and interior decorating to professional and business offices.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less as cash equivalents.

Property and equipment

Property and equipment are recorded at cost and depreciated under straight line methods over each item's estimated useful life.

Income tax

We follow Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 109, ASC 740 - “Accounting for Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”). This standard requires the use of an asset and liability approach for financial accounting for and reporting of income taxes. If it is more likely than not that some portion or all of a deferred tax asset will not be realized, a valuation allowance is recognized.

Net income (loss) per share

The net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common outstanding. Warrants, stock options, and other dilutive instruments are not included in the computation if the effect would be anti-dilutive. As of and for the year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, there were no potentially dilutive instruments outstanding.


ROCKDALE RESOURCES CORPORATION
(FORMELY ART DESIGN, INC.)
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2011 and 2010
 
NOTE 1.
ORGANIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued):

Financial Instruments

The Company’s financial instruments consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, other receivables, and related party notes payable. Management believes that the recorded values of our other financial instruments approximate their current fair values because of their nature and relatively short maturity dates or durations.
 
Long-Lived Assets

In accordance with ASC 350, the Company reviews the carrying value of intangible and other long-lived assets for the existence of facts or circumstances, both internally and externally, that may suggest impairment. If impairment testing indicates a lack of recoverability, an impairment loss is recognized by the Company if the carrying amount of a long-lived asset exceeds its fair value.

Reclassification

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

The Company has evaluated all the recent accounting pronouncements through the filing date and believes that none of them will have a material effect on the Company.

NOTE 2.            GOING CONCERN

The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a large working capital deficit. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company may raise additional capital through the sale of its equity securities, through offerings of debt securities, or through borrowings from financial institutions. Management believes that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2011 and 2010
 
NOTE 3.            RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The Company has a note payable to a Company officer. The note is unsecured and payable upon demand. The note bears interest at 8% per annum if not paid promptly upon demand. The outstanding principal balance on the note was $34,201 at December 31, 2011 and 2010.

The Company has a note payable to a Company officer. The note is unsecured and payable upon demand. The note bears interest at 8% per annum . The outstanding principal balance on the note was $8,100 and $0 at December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. As of December 31, 2011, company had accrued interest of $72, the interest has only been accrued for the money borrowed during the current period starting October 1, 2011.

During the year ended December 31, 2011, the company lent $9,800 to a company affiliated through common control. The receivable balance was $24,800 at December 31, 2011. The loan does not bear interest and is payable upon demand.

NOTE 4.            SHORT TERM DEBT

In September 2011, a promissory note was issued in exchange for legal fees due in the amount of $3,250. The note amount bears an 8% interest rate, payable on demand and had accrued interest of $65 as of December 31, 2011.

NOTE 5.            INCOME TAXES

Deferred income taxes arise from the temporary differences between financial statement and income tax recognition of net operating losses. These loss carryovers are limited under the Internal Revenue Code should a significant change in ownership occur.

At December 31, 2011 and 2010, after the spinoff of its subsidiary the Company had net operating loss carry forwards of $136,600 and $106,000 respectively, which begin to expire in 2026. The deferred tax asset of $46,400 and $36,000 respectively created by the net operating loss has been offset by a 100% valuation allowance. The change in the valuation allowance in 2011 and 2010 was $10,400 and $5,000 respectively.

The Company’s income tax filings are subject to audit by various taxing authorities. The Company’s open audit periods are 2008, 2009, and 2010, although, the statute of limitations for the 2008 tax year will expire effective March 15, 2011. In evaluating the Company’s provisions and accruals, future taxable income, and reversal of temporary differences, interpretations and tax planning strategies are considered. The Company believes its estimates are appropriate based on current facts and circumstances.

NOTE 1. ORGANIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:

Art Design, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Colorado on January 16, 2002.  In April 2012 the Company discontinued its prior operations and became involved in the exploration and development of oil and gas. On May 4th, 2012, the Company amended its articles of incorporation to change its name to Rockdale Resources Corporation (the “Company”).

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011 which are included as part of this prospectus. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operations for a full year. Notes to the consolidated financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited financial statements for the  year ended December 31, 2011  have been omitted.
 
Estimates
 
The process of preparing financial statements requires that the Company make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Such estimates primarily relate to unsettled transactions and events as of the date of the financial statements; accordingly, actual results may differ from estimated amounts.  The Company’s estimates and assumptions are based on current facts, historical experience and various other factors the Company believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. The most significant estimates with regard to the Company’s financial statements relate to carrying values of oil and gas properties and deferred income tax rates and timing of the reversal of income tax differences. These estimates and assumptions are reviewed periodically and, as adjustments become necessary, they are reported in earnings in the periods in which they become known.
 
Petroleum and Natural Gas Properties
 
The Company uses the full cost method to account for our investment in oil and gas properties. Accordingly, all costs associated with acquisition, exploration and development of oil and gas reserves, including such costs as leasehold acquisition costs relating to unproved properties, geological expenditures, tangible and intangible development costs, including direct internal costs, are capitalized to the full cost pool. If the Company commences production from established proven oil and gas reserves, capitalized costs, including estimated future costs to develop the reserves and estimated abandonment costs, net of salvage, will be depleted on the units-of-production method using estimates of proved reserves. Costs of unproved properties are not amortized until the proved reserves associated with the projects can be determined or until impairment occurs. If an assessment of such properties indicates that properties are impaired, the amount of impairment is added to the capitalized cost base to be amortized. The capitalized costs included in the full cost pool are subject to a "ceiling test" (based on the average of 12-month  first-day-of-the-month prices), which limits such costs to the aggregate of the (i) estimated present value, using a ten percent discount rate, of the future net revenues from proved reserves, based on current economic and operating conditions, (ii) the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproven properties included in the costs being amortized, (iii) the cost of properties not being amortized, less (iv) income tax effects related to differences between the book and tax basis of the cost of properties not being amortized and the cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties included in the costs being amortized. If net capitalized costs exceed this limit, the excess is charged to expense in the current period. Sales of proved and unproved properties are accounted for as adjustments of capitalized costs with no gain or loss recognized, unless such adjustments would significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves of oil and gas, in which case the gain or loss is recognized in the statement of operations.

Asset Retirement Obligations
 
The Company records the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability in the period in which it incurs an obligation associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and/or normal use of the assets. The estimated fair value of the asset retirement obligation is based on the current cost escalated at an inflation rate and discounted at a credit adjusted risk-free rate. This liability is capitalized as part of the cost of the related asset and amortized over its useful life.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The estimated fair values for financial instruments are determined at discrete points in time based on relevant market information. These estimates involve uncertainties and cannot be determined with precision. The estimated fair value of cash, other receivables, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and demand notes payable approximates their carrying value due to their short-term nature. The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with an original maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for future income taxes. Under this method, future income tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on temporary differences between the carrying amount of balance sheet items and their corresponding tax bases. In addition, the future benefits of income tax assets, including unused tax losses, are recognized, subject to a valuation allowance, to the extent that it is more likely than not that such future benefits will ultimately be realized. Future income tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates and laws expected to apply when the tax liabilities or assets are to be either settled or realized.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, services have been rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured.  The Company follows the “sales method” of accounting for oil and revenue, hence the Company recognizes revenue on all crude oil sold to purchasers, regardless of whether the sales are proportionate to the Company’s ownership in the property.  Operating costs and taxes are recognized in the same period in which revenue is earned.  Severance and ad valorum taxes are reflected as a component of lease operating expense.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
The Company has evaluated all recent accounting pronouncements through the date of this prospectus and believes that none of them will have a material effect on the Company.
 
NOTE 2. GOING CONCERN

The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a working capital deficit. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company may raise additional capital through the sale of its equity securities, through offerings of debt securities, or through borrowings from financial institutions. Management believes that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.
