 GLOBAL ANNOUNCES YEAR END RESULTS
 HOUSTON, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Natural Resources Inc.


(NYSE: GNR) today reported a net loss of $39.1 million or $1.66 per share on revenues of $60.0 million for the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 1991.
 The 1991 net loss included losses associated with property transactions of approximately $28.5 million, leasehold impairments of $4.9 million and $4.4 million of unsuccessful exploratory wells. The results for 1991 compares to net income of $8.0 million or $.35 per share on revenues of $58.1 million for 1990. The 1991 and 1990 results included a $3.0 million and $4.6 million, respectively, liquidating distribution from a 47 percent owned real estate investment trust.
 For the three months ended Dec. 31, 1991, the net loss was $22.0 million or $.93 per share compared with net income of $3.1 million or $.14 per share for the same period in 1990. Total revenues were $12.9 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 1991, compared with revenues of $20.7 million for the same quarter in 1990. The loss for the three months ended Dec. 31, 1991, included losses associated with property transactions of approximately $15.9 million, leasehold impairments of $2.0 million, and unsuccessful exploratory wells of $3.2 million.
 Cash provided by operating activities was $15.3 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 1991, compared to $32.1 million for the same period of 1990. Working capital at Dec. 31, 1991, was $35.0 million compared to $31.6 million at year end 1990. Cash and short-term investments at Dec. 31, 1991, was $40.3 million compared to $34.0 at Dec. 31, 1990. During 1991, $54.7 million of long-term debt and associated accrued interest was converted into preferred stock which is convertible into approximately 6.3 million shares of the company's common stock.
 "The losses for the year were largely attributable to the company's strategic decision to sell certain properties in the United States and focus on international opportunities with greater potential in Russia and Argentina," commented James G. Niven, chairman of Global. "We have repositioned the company by completing the divesture of domestic properties with declining production capacity, higher than normal operating costs and high depletion rates. In implementing our plan to dispose of these properties, we recognized the necessity of foregoing short-term rewards to assure longer-term success," said Niven.
 The divested properties represented approximately 36 percent of the company's domestic and 20 percent of its total proved reserves. Cash of approximately $17.0 million was received from the sale of the properties.
 Global Natural Resources Inc. is a Houston-based energy company engaged in the exploration, development and production of oil and gas in North America. The company also owns an interest in long-term oil and gas production sharing contracts in Indonesia and joint venture projects in Tatarstan-Russia and Argentina.
