Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we are informing the public that Dr. Daniel R. Peralta, our President and Chief Executive Officer, major shareholder and director, and his wife died early in the morning of November 7, 2012 at their home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Dr. Peralta was 58 years old, and had received a doctoral degree in business administration from the University of Belgrano (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 1988, and a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering from the National Technology University, Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1982. Prior to becoming an American citizen, he was a Board member of the Central Bank of Argentina and held various positions in the Argentina government.

Our Board today has appointed Malcolm W. Sherman, Executive Vice President, to the offices of President and Chief Executive Officer, and has elected Santiago Peralta, age 24, the eldest son of Daniel Peralta, as a director of the Company. Santiago Peralta, who is now in business school at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, has worked extensively in Argentina with his father and our management in the negotiations for and operations in connection with the Company’s oil properties in that country.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
