    Commentary
    "The amount of oil and natural gas produced by Samson Energy reached record levels in the recent three and nine month periods. This is the result of increased production from wells formerly dedicated under long-term gas contracts and the production attributable to newly acquired wells.  As previously announced, Samson Energy, as of Aug. 1, 1991, acquired interests in 157 oil and gas properties.  This increased the company's gas reserves by more than 30 percent and oil reserves by more than 18 percent," stated Dennis R. Neill, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Samson Properties Inc., the general partner.
    "The benefits of increased production capability should become more apparent when natural gas prices improve.  The natural gas industry has been dealing with the lowest spot market price since the 1970's.  Cooler fall and winter weather could significantly improve our spot market price.  We will continue to manage our oil and natural gas production to maximize the ultimate value of our reserves," said Neill.
    Samson Energy Co. is a publicly traded master limited partnership whose principal business activities include the development and operation of oil and gas properties and the acquisition of additional producing properties.  Depositary receipts evidencing units are traded on the American Stock Exchange under the symbol SAM.
