September 6, 2005 – Dallas, Texas – Due to the flooding of its Metairie, Louisiana office Biloxi Marsh Lands Corporation (Pinksheets:BLMC) has temporarily relocated its office. All critical electronic files including but not limited to all 3D seismic data were successfully evacuated. After flood waters recede, we plan to make an assessment of the office facilities and determine where to locate our permanent office.
On September 1, 2005 using a fixed wing aircraft Biloxi Marsh Lands Corporation’s environmental consultant conducted and aerial over-flight of the Company’s property. According our environmental consultant, at the time of the aerial survey the storm surge had receded and the water level had returned to normal. From the aerial view, it appeared that the interior marsh land from the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet to Bayou Grande sustained little discernable damage. Large pieces and chunks of storm deposited vegetation normally seen floating in interior ponds following hurricane force winds and waves were not found in the area inspected. Many trees along the Bayou La Loutre Ridge were blown over and broken. There were large amounts of debris and vegetation litter deposited along the Ridge, and along the banks of canals and bayous. As of this time, without an on the ground assessment, it appears that the Company’s property weathered the hurricane relatively well with little loss of land. We plan to conduct a more detail aerial survey using a helicopter this week, with on the ground surveys to follow.
As of the date of this release all production of hydrocarbons emanating from the company’s property is shut in awaiting repairs to production facilities which were damaged by the hurricane. According to The Meridian Resource Corporation (NYSE:TMR), while they are still in the process of completely evaluating the situation, they are already in the rebuilding phase and hope to have a substantial amount of their production on line within the next 15 to 20 days with the balance returning within 60 days.
