"BNK earned a net profit of $407,000 in the second quarter of
2011 on a 53% increase in oil and gas revenues net of royalties.
Other income in the quarter was $2.2 million versus $.4 million in
the second quarter of 2010 which resulted from the sale of seismic
data in Oklahoma for $1.2 million, $.6 million in estimated
management fee income and $.4 million in gathering revenue.

The increase in oil and gas revenues resulted from the
combination of a 31% increase in average product prices in the
quarter coupled with a 13% increase in average daily production.
Average net-backs per barrel (per barrel product prices less
royalties and operating expenses) increased 52% in the quarter.

General and administrative expenses increased 93% or $1.8 million
in the comparative quarters due to increases in re-organization fees
of $ 370,000, higher stock based compensation expense of $325,000,
increased European accounting management and consulting fees of $
329,000 as well as increased travel costs of $204,000 and other
smaller cost items.

Cash and working capital remained strong at June 30, 2011
totaling $56.4 million and $56.4 million respectively.

Through the first half of 2011 BNK earned net income of $292,000
versus a loss of $2.4 million in the first half of 2010. Oil and gas
revenues increased $2.4 million or 36% aided by a 17% increase in
average production per day and a 12% increase in average product

The Company recently fracture stimulated two Woodford horizontal
wells in Oklahoma one of which is still in the early stages of
flowback. In addition the Company participated in a non-operated well
which was recently fracture stimulated. Accordingly recent production
increased to over 2,300 barrels a day and the Company is scheduling
fracture stimulations on two more horizontal wells by the end of the

In Poland the Company as Manager for Saponis Investments Sp z
o.o. finished drilling two wells (Wytowno S-1 and Lebork S-1) and
spud a third well (Starogard S-1) last month with total depth on that
well expected to be reached by the end of August 2011. Fracture
stimulation work on the first two wells is scheduled for

Based on the recent core analysis received from 3rd party
contractors on the Wytowno S-1 and Lebork S-1 wells the Company is
encouraged with the Lebork S-1 well looking particularly promising.

On its wholly owned Indiana concessions (Bytow, Trzebielino and
Darlowo) operations must be commenced to drill three wells by
September 2012 in order to continue to hold those concessions. The
Company is in process of determining drilling locations for these
wells and plans to begin shooting seismic data in the fourth quarter
of 2011 which will help to further define basin structure.

In Germany the Company has opened an office in Hannover and plans
to acquire seismic data on its six locations beginning in the fourth
quarter of this year.

In other areas of Europe the Company awaits the potential grant
of other concessions that it has applied for in addition to applying
for other concessions throughout the world."

Non-IFRS Information

Netback per barrel and its components are calculated by dividing
revenue, royalties and operating expenses by the Company's sales
volume during the period. Netback per barrel is a non-IFRS measure
but it is commonly used by oil and gas companies to illustrate the
unit contribution of each barrel produced. This is a useful measure
for investors to compare the performance of one entity with another.
The non-IFRS measures referred to above do not have any standardized
meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to
similar measures used by other companies.

The Company also uses the "barrels" (bbls) or "barrels of oil
equivalent" (boe) reference in this report to reflect natural gas
liquids and oil production and sales. All boe conversions are derived
by converting gas to oil in the ratio of six thousand cubic feet of
gas to one barrel of oil, representing the approximate energy
