These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding: projections, predictions, expectations, estimates or forecasts for our business, financial and operating results and future economic performance; statements of management's goals and objectives; and other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Words such as "may," "will," "should," "could," "would," "predicts," "potential," "continue," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes" and "estimates," and similar expressions, as well as statements in future tense, identify forward-looking statements.
 
Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by which, that performance or those results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time they are made and/or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause these differences include, but are not limited to:
 
·  
our failure to implement our business plan within the time period we originally planned to accomplish; and
 
·  
other factors discussed under the headings "Risk Factors," "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation" and "Business."
 
Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. We assume no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking information, except to the extent required by applicable securities laws. If we do update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that we will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.
 
All references to "we," "our," "us" and the "Company" in this Annual Report on Form 10-K refer to Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation and its subsidiaries.
 
ITEM 1. BUSINESS
 
Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation, formerly known as C2 Technologies, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on February 25, 1997. C2 Technologies, Inc. changed its name to Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation on November 19, 1998. On April 17, 2006, we filed an amendment to our articles of incorporation increasing our authorized common stock capital from One Hundred Million (100,000,000) shares to Two Hundred Fifty Million (250,000,000) shares. We have eleven subsidiaries that we directly and indirectly own as follows: (1) Rio Bravo Energy LLC, (2) Arrecefe Management LLC, (3) Marea Associates, L.P., (4) Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V., (5) Esperanza Energy LLC and (6) Sonterra Energy Corporation. We also own a 97% limited partnership interest in (7) Reef Ventures, L.P. Arrecefe Management LLC owns a 1% general partner interest in Reef Ventures, L.P. Rio Bravo Energy, LLC owns 100% of the member interest in (8) Sonora Pipeline LLC. Reef Ventures, L.P. owns 100% of the member interest in (9) Reef International LLC and (10) Reef Marketing LLC. In February 2006, we formed subsidiary number (11) Tidelands Exploration & Production Corporation.
 
Our products and services are primarily focused on development and operation of transportation, processing, distribution and storage of natural gas and natural gas liquids in the northeastern states of Mexico (Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas) and the States of Texas and California.
 
 
Reef Ventures International Pipeline
 
The assets of this business consist of two different pipelines: (1) an 8 mile twelve inch diameter natural gas pipeline with metering and dehydration facilities and (2) a two mile segment of six inch diameter pipeline to be used in a future LPG project. The twelve inch pipeline connects and receives natural gas from a third party pipeline for transmission to the border between Texas and Coahuila, Mexico. The pipeline is buried underneath the Rio Grande River with its termination at the delivery point in Piedras Negras, Coahuila owned by CONAGAS (the local distribution company). Reef Ventures, L.P. derives its revenues from transportation fees charged to CONAGAS for delivery of natural gas. The LPG project will require the future construction of receiving terminal facilities in Texas, boring and installation of additional six inch diameter pipeline under the Rio Grande River and approximately one mile of additional pipeline in Mexico with an unloading terminal and storage facilities at its termination point.

Esperanza Energy, LLC

Esperanza Energy, LLC ("Esperanza") was formed as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company in March 2006 to evaluate the feasibility of developing an offshore, deep-water liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving and regasification terminal near Long Beach, California. Esperanza would utilize TORP Technology's HiLoad LNG Regas unit that attaches to an LNG tanker, directly vaporizes the LNG as it is offloaded and injects the regasified natural gas into an undersea pipeline for transportation of the natural gas to onshore metering stations and transmission pipelines to supply nearby gas markets. The TORP HiLoad LNG Regas unit eliminates the need for extensive above-ground storage tanks or large marine structures required for berthing and processing of the LNG. Esperanza has conducted its feasibility study for this project with the assistance of best-in-class LNG, environmental, pipeline and legal advisors and has concluded that the project is technically, environmentally and commercially feasible. Esperanza plans to develop the necessary information in 2007 to file applications with California state and U.S. Federal agencies for appropriate permits to construct, own and operate the LNG facilities.
 
Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V and the Burgos Hub Project
 
In December 2003, we entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with PEMEX to design, build and operate an underground natural gas storage facility in the vicinity of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico, in the Burgos Basin area and eventually at other regions in Mexico.
 
We completed the initial study of the Burgos facility and expect to receive permits in 2007 to construct, own and operate the storage facility and the interconnecting pipelines from the Comision Reguladora de Energia (the Mexican regulatory branch of the Secretary of Energy). The capital budget for the first two phases of this project exceeds $700 Million Dollars and may be funded through issuance of additional equity of the Company, the addition of joint venture partners and/or debt financing. Marea Associates, L.P. was formed to own the majority interest in Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V., a Mexican company which will conduct all business dealings in Mexico on behalf of Tidelands. Rio Bravo Energy LLC, an existing wholly owned subsidiary owns the general partner interest in Marea Associates, L.P. and a minority interest in Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V.
 
On June 5, 2006, Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation subsidiary, Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V. was awarded a Permit (#G/183/TRA 2006) by the Comision Reguladora de Energia de Mexico (CRE) to begin construction of the Terranova Occidente and Oriente pipeline portions of its Burgos Hub Project.
 
The Permit is for the Occidente and Oriente Sections of the Terranova pipelines. The Occidente section will feature a 30-inch diameter pipeline, spanning approximately 323 kilometers in total length. One segment will run from the Brasil storage field to Nuevo Progreso, Mexico, where it will connect with the Sonora Pipeline LLC Progreso International Pipeline, a proposed international pipeline crossing into South Texas from Mexico extending to the Donna Station, which will provide the opportunity for interconnects into Texas natural gas pipelines owned by TETCO, TGPL and Texas Gas Services. The permitted pipeline will also include a section that will stretch from the Brasil storage field to Station 19 and up to Arguelles where another proposed international pipeline crossing into South Texas is planned (Sonora Pipeline, LLC’s Mission International Pipeline) with opportunities to interconnect with Houston Pipeline, Calpine and Kinder Morgan. A 36-inch diameter pipeline spanning some 149 kilometers will characterize the Oriente Section of the Terranova pipelines. It will run from the proposed offshore LNG Regasification Terminal to Norte Puerto Mezquital and proceed to the Brazil storage field. Both Terranova pipelines are designed to flow natural gas bi-directionally between Texas and Mexico at a rate of approximately 1.0 BCFD (billion cubic feet per day).
 
In the second quarter of 2007, Terranova expects to file an application with the CRE to amend its existing Mexican pipeline permit to allow for the construction of an additional segment of pipeline which will extend from Station 19 (located to the southwest of Reynosa, Tamaulipas) to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. This filing is being pursued in response to commercial interest from industrial customers and potential service opportunity for the power generation facilities proposed by the Comision Federal de Electridad (CFE) in northeast Mexico. Discussion with staff at the regulatory body, CRE, indicates a timeline for action on the amended permit by the fourth quarter of 2007.
 
 
Terranova submitted the storage permit to the CRE on August 5, 2005 and it was accepted for full review on October 14, 2005. Several unique questions are presented by the filing of this permit due to the proposed location and the lack of previous storage permit applications having been considered by the CRE. The CRE, with cooperation from Terranova, is conducting discussions with PEMEX, the energy ministry of the United Mexican States (SENER) and the Mexican Petroleum Institute (MPI) to determine the mechanism for the grant of use rights for the depleted reservoir as a natural gas storage facility and the proper legal vesting of such rights with the holder of the CRE permit to construct own and operate a gas storage facility. Terranova expects that these issues and a decision regarding the Company’s storage permit application will be resolved by the CRE Commissioners in the third quarter of 2007.
 
The Company continues to present the pipeline and storage segments of the Burgos Hub project to commercial audiences in efforts to solicit their interest and participation in the project at various levels. There have been numerous meetings with staff of the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) with respect to its planned natural gas usage in northeast Mexico and the Monterrey industrial consumers of natural gas with a view toward clarifying their need and usage of the proposed project facilities. Efforts continue to secure precedent agreements for capacity reservation of the project facilities. Preliminary evaluation of demand for storage capacity reservation based upon direct discussion with the various customers is estimated at 40 Bcf for the market area influenced by the project. Similarly, discussions are continuing with interested parties in the U.S. and Mexico regarding the execution of a joint development agreement between Terranova and their firms for the funding, development and ownership of the Project.
 
Sonora Pipeline, LLC and the Burgos Hub Project
 
In connection with the Mexican storage and pipeline project mentioned above, Sonora Pipeline, LLC is the applicant before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for two proposed U.S. pipelines that will transport gas bidirectionally to/from the United States to Mexico at two different international crossing points along the Rio Grande River in South Texas - the Progreso International Pipeline and the Mission International Pipeline. The Progreso pipeline segment will be approximately 8.7 miles long and will comprise the eastern leg of the U.S. pipelines, which will interconnect with the Tennessee Gas Pipeline transmission lines at the Donna Station and will ultimately deliver natural gas to the proposed Brasil Storage facility approximately 17 miles south of the U.S./Mexico border at Progreso, Texas. The proposed Mission International Pipeline segment was re-designed in the first quarter of 2006 due to a routing conflict with a fiber optic line. It will be approximately 20.2 miles long and will commence at the existing HPL Valero-Gilmore gas plant in Hidalgo County, Texas, and will extend southward to the Arguelles crossing of the Rio Grande River into Mexico near the city of Mission, Texas. Both U.S. pipelines will connect with the pipelines being developed by Tidelands’ subsidiary in Mexico, Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V. On January 31, 2007, Sonora Pipeline, LLC (“Sonora”) filed application with FERC for a certificate of public convenience and necessity to construct and operate these natural gas pipeline facilities and to transport natural gas in interstate commerce for others including an application for a presidential permit at each pipeline segment’s crossing point from the U.S. into Mexico. Simultaneously, Sonora filed its Applicant Prepared Draft Environmental Assessment for review by the FERC. Sonora continues to respond to FERC inquiries and analysis with respect to these applications and has asked the FERC to grant the authorizations requested in the applications by July 1, 2007. The current catalog of FERC correspondence for Sonora's activities is located at www.ferc.gov under Docket No. PF07-74 et sequence.
 
Rio Bravo Energy, LLC and Sonora Pipeline, LLC
 
Rio Bravo Energy, LLC was formed on August 10, 1998 to operate the Chittim Gas Processing Plant which was purchased in 1999 and was processing natural gas primarily from Conoco Oil's Sacatosa Field. The Sacatosa Field was primarily an oilfield which produced high BTU casinghead gas from which gas processing operations would yield valuable hydrocarbon components such as propane, butane and natural gasolines. As the field depleted, lower volumes of casinghead gas were being delivered by Conoco, and other gas producers could not be contracted with for processing of additional replacement volumes of gas. Therefore, in October 2002, the plant was temporarily shut down due to the declining economics associated with low volume operation of the plant. During 2002 through the fourth quarter of 2005, management planned to reopen the plant when adequate volumes of gas from third party producers were obtained to make plant operations economically attractive. However, we have been unsuccessful in locating a locally available and adequate supply of high BTU natural gas and have elected to dispose of the gas plant assets. Accordingly, our financial statements for 2005 reflect an impairment charge with respect to the carrying value of these assets. Rio Bravo Energy, LLC continues to serve as the parent company for Sonora Pipeline, LLC, as the one percent general partner of Marea Associates, L.P. and owns a less than one percent minority interest in Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V.
 
Sonora Pipeline, LLC was formed in January 1998 to operate the Sonora pipeline network which has the capability of delivering adequate volumes of natural gas for economic operation of the Chittim Gas Processing Plant. The pipeline network consists of approximately 80 miles of gas pipeline. This pipeline network was acquired in conjunction with the Chittim Gas Processing Plant acquisition and, when operational, could generate revenue from transportation fees to be charged to third party gas producers shipping natural gas to the gas plant owned by Rio Bravo Energy, LLC. As noted above, management has evaluated the carrying value of these assets and has recorded an impairment charge in our 2005 financial statements with respect to pipeline network in addition to the gas plant. These assets will also be sold at a later date.
 
 
Sonterra Energy Corporation Business
 
The assets of our Sonterra Energy Corporation ("Sonterra") subsidiary consist of propane distribution systems, including gas mains, yard lines, meters and storage tanks, serving the following residential subdivisions in the Austin, Texas area. The subdivisions include:

1.  
Arbolago
2.  
Austin's Colony
3.  
Avonlea
4.  
Casalona/Riverbend
5.  
Cordillera Ranch

The Preserve at Barton Creek
 
These subdivisions contain approximately 2,250 lots which can be supplied with gas service from Sonterra. Currently 1,155 of these lots are metered for use. There are approximately 1,095 unmetered future lots within the above subdivisions where propane service can be connected. As new homes are constructed on these lots our customer base will grow. Construction activities continue in the existing subdivisions where expansion phases of development will result in the addition of approximately 170 customers in 2007. Sonterra's participation in the launch of new subdivisions is also occurring, as exemplified by the signing of a construction contract with the developers of Las Brisas at Ensenada Shores (located on Canyon Lake), where 75 new lots with propane service have been completed for sale to new customers. This subdivision's second phase of development is expected to add another 175 lots. Construction continues on Section 205 of the Cordillera Ranch subdivision which added 50 more residential customers in the fourth quarter of 2006. Sonterra has expanded into additional markets as evidenced by the signing of a construction contract to build a central propane system for a multi-use retail center in Lago Vista, Texas. The system will serve five to ten large commercial customers including two restaurants.
 
Sonterra is the exclusive seller of propane in these subdivisions and is not considered a rate-regulated utility. The Texas Railroad Commission regulates all aspects of the production, transportation and processing of petroleum products, including propane, in the State of Texas. Sonterra purchases propane products from a number of distributors in Austin, Texas. Seasonality and weather conditions have a significant impact on the demand for propane for heating purposes. All of our propane customers rely heavily on propane as a heating fuel. The volume of propane sold is at its highest during the six-month peak heating season of October through March, during which approximately two-thirds of our annual retail propane volume is sold.
 
 
Tidelands Exploration & Production Corporation
 
On July 9, 2006, Tidelands Exploration & Production Corporation acquired a 50% interest in a 26-mile natural gas pipeline located in Medina, Atascosa and Bexar Counties in the state of Texas. In addition, the Company also acquired an undivided 50% working interest in two leases with 5 recompleted natural gas wells on approximately 1,000 acres with at least 10 additional natural gas wells for re-entry. These leases are located in Atascosa and Medina counties. The Company has elected not to participate in this venture on an ongoing basis and expects to resell these properties in 2007.

Competition
 
Reef Ventures, L.P. Eagle Pass Pipeline Crossing
 
Our Eagle Pass international pipeline crossing competes with a pipeline owned by West Texas Gas, Inc. which is located two miles north of Eagle Pass. We believe that the West Texas Gas crossing will be able to compete with us but due to a very limited transmission capability, that organization cannot supply the total demand of the market area. Further efforts to increase revenues from the system by increasing transportation fees are currently being undertaken.
 
Sonterra Energy Corporation Propane Distribution
 
Our propane distribution business is not subject to competition within the residential subdivisions served because we are the sole propane supplier. The residential subdivisions are subject to a propane supply covenant granting us the exclusive supply of propane for each subdivision. In the future, we will compete in the bidding process for new propane distribution systems as new residential subdivisions are developed. We may also be able to acquire additional existing propane distribution systems from competitors.
 
In addition, we compete with other established businesses that market similar products. Many of these companies have greater capital, marketing and other resources than we do. There can be no assurance that these or other companies will not develop new or enhanced products that have greater market acceptance than any that may be marketed by us.
 
Employees
 
Tidelands has six full-time employees including our corporate officers. Our Sonterra Energy subsidiary, which operates the Austin propane gas distribution company, has eight full-time employees.
 
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
 
In addition to the other information presented in this report, the following should be considered carefully in evaluating our business or purchasing shares of our common stock. Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. This report contains various forward looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ materially from the results discussed in the forward looking statements. Factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, those discussed below and elsewhere in this report.
 
OPERATING LOSSES
 
We have had significant losses ever since starting business and we expect to continue losing money for some time. To date, we have incurred significant losses. For the year ended December 31, 2006, we lost $11,836,925 and for the year ended December 31, 2005, we lost $7,662,904. These losses were caused primarily by:
 
s  
Financing costs in connection with acquisitions made in prior years and the issuance of convertible debentures;
 
s  
Limited volumes of gas transported through the international pipeline crossing;
 
s  
Pre-development and operating expenses associated with the development of additional pipeline and storage projects in Mexico;
 
s  
Idle assets not producing revenue, such as the gas plant and associated pipeline;
 
s  
Default interest penalties regarding a convertible debenture financing;
 
s  
Increased employee related salaries, stock-based compensation and related costs.
 
 
WE MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH FUNDING TO COMPLETE OUR BUSINESS PLAN OR CONTINUE OPERATIONS.
 
We will need additional financing to fully implement our business plan. We cannot give any assurance that this additional financing could be obtained of attractive terms or at all. Lack of funding could force us to curtail substantially or cease our operations.
 
The financial statements included in this report have been prepared on the basis that we will continue as a going concern, which assumes the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have incurred significant accumulated losses as of December 31, 2006. We do not expect to generate sufficient revenue to meet our cash requirements for the next twelve months. We will need to raise additional capital to continue meeting operational expenses. Our independent auditors have added an explanatory paragraph to their report of our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2006 stating that our net losses, lack of revenues and dependence on our ability to raise additional capital to continue our existence, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. If we are not successful in raising sufficient additional capital, we may we may not be able to continue as a going concern, our stockholders may lose their entire investment in us.
 
LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY
 
We have a limited operating history and our financial health will be subject to all the risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise. The likelihood of success of our Company must be considered in the light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications, and delays frequently encountered in connection with the startup and growth of a new business, and the competitive environment in which we will operate. Our success is dependent upon the successful financing and development of our business plan. No assurance of success is offered. Unanticipated problems, expenses, and delays are frequently encountered in establishing a new business and marketing and developing products. These include, but are not limited to, competition, the need to develop customers and market expertise, market conditions, sales, marketing and governmental regulation. The failure of the Company to meet any of these conditions would have a materially adverse effect upon the Company and may force the Company to reduce or curtail operations. No assurance can be given that the Company can or will ever operate profitably.
 
RELIANCE ON MANAGEMENT
 
We recently appointed James B. Smith as our President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Smith also continues to serve as Chief Financial Officer. Assuming the roles of both Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer could place undue burden on Mr. Smith’s time and resources. In addition, the Company faces risks associated with the transition of management from our prior Chief Executive Officer to Mr. Smith. The Company depends substantially upon the efforts and abilities of Mr. Smith and the loss of Mr. Smith's services could have a serious adverse effect on our business, operations, revenues or prospects. We do not currently maintain any key man life insurance on Mr. Smith.
 
TRADING IN OUR COMMON STOCK ON THE OTC BULLETIN BOARD MAY BE LIMITED.
 
Our common stock trades on the OTC Bulletin Board. The OTC Bulletin Board is not an exchange. Trading of securities on the OTC Bulletin Board is often more sporadic than the trading of securities listed on an exchange or Nasdaq. You may have difficulty reselling any of our common stock shares.
 
THERE HAS BEEN A VOLATILE PUBLIC MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK AND THE PRICE OF OUR STOCK MAY BE SUBJECT TO FLUCTUATIONS.
 
We cannot assure you that a liquid transparent trading market for our common stock will develop or be sustained. You may not be able to resell your shares at or above the price you paid for them. The market price of our common stock is likely to be volatile and could be subject to fluctuations in response to factors such as the following, most of which are beyond our control:
 
s operating results that vary from the expectations of securities analysts and investors;
s changes in expectations as to our future financial performance, including financial estimates by securities analysts and investors;
s the operations, regulatory, market and other risks discussed in this section;
s announcements by us or our competitors of significant contracts, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
s announcements by third parties of significant claims or proceedings against us; and
s future sales of our common stock.
 
In addition, the market for our stock has from time to time experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations. These broad market fluctuations may adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
 
OUR COMMON STOCK IS SUBJECT TO PENNY STOCK REGULATION.
 
Our common stock is subject to regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the market for penny stocks. The Securities Enforcement and Penny Stock Reform Act of 1990 (the "Reform Act") also requires additional disclosure in connection with any trades involving a stock defined as a "penny stock" (generally, according to recent regulations adopted by the Commission, any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions), including the delivery, prior to any penny stock transaction, of a disclosure schedule explaining the penny stock market and the risks associated therewith. These regulations generally require broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than established customers and accredited investors to deliver a disclosure schedule explaining the penny stock market and the risks associated with that market. These regulations also impose various sales practice requirements on broker-dealers. The regulations that apply to penny stocks may severely affect the market liquidity for our securities and that could limit your ability to sell your securities in the secondary market.
 
RISKS RELATING TO LOW-PRICE STOCKS
 
Because our stock is quoted on the NASD OTC Electronic Bulletin Board and subject to the Penny Stock Regulations, an investor may find it difficult to dispose of, or to obtain accurate quotations as to the market value of, our Company's securities. The regulations governing low-priced or penny stocks could limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell the Company's securities and thus the ability of holders of our common stock to sell their securities in the secondary market.
 
FUTURE CAPITAL NEEDS COULD RESULT IN DILUTION TO STOCKHOLDERS; ADDITIONAL FINANCING COULD BE UNAVAILABLE OR HAVE UNFAVORABLE TERMS.
 
Our future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including cash flow from operations, progress in our gas operations, competing market developments, and our ability to market our proposed products successfully. Our working capital is presently insufficient to fund the Company's activities. It will be necessary to raise additional funds through equity or debt financings. Any equity financings could result in dilution to our then-existing stockholders. Sources of debt financing may result in higher interest expense. Any financing, if available, may be on terms unfavorable to the Company. If adequate funds are not obtained, the Company may be required to reduce or curtail operations.
 
SUBSTANTIAL CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS
 
We may make substantial capital expenditures for the development, acquisition and production of natural gas pipeline, processing systems and, or storage facilities. If revenues or the Company's equity financing decrease as a result of lower natural gas prices or operating difficulties, the Company may have limited ability to expend the capital necessary to undertake or complete proposed plans and opportunities. There can be no assurance that additional debt or equity financing or cash generated by operations will be available to meet these requirements.
 
 
WE CAN GIVE NO ASSURANCE REGARDING THE AMOUNTS OF CASH THAT WE WILL GENERATE.
 
The actual amounts of cash we generate will depend upon numerous factors relating to our business which may be beyond our control, including:
 
s the demand for natural gas;
s profitability of operations;
s required principal and interest payments on any debt we may incur;
s the cost of acquisitions;
s our issuance of equity securities;
s fluctuations in working capital;
s capital expenditures;
s continued development of gas transportation network systems;
s prevailing economic conditions; and
s government regulations.
 
WE DO NOT EXPECT TO PAY DIVIDENDS FOR SOME TIME, IF AT ALL.
 
No cash dividends have been paid on the Common Stock. We expect that any income received from operations will be devoted to our future operations and growth. We do not expect to pay cash dividends in the near future. Payment of dividends would depend upon our profitability at the time, cash available for those dividends, and other factors.
 
COMPETITION
 
We will be competing with other established businesses that market similar products. Many of these companies have greater capital, marketing and other resources than we do. There can be no assurance that these or other companies will not develop new or enhanced products that have greater market acceptance than any that may be marketed by us. There can be no assurance that we will successfully differentiate ourselves from our competitors or that the market will consider our products to be superior or to or more appealing than those of our competitors. Market entry by any significant competitor may have an adverse effect on our sales and profitability.
 
WE OPERATE IN HIGHLY COMPETITIVE MARKETS IN COMPETITION WITH A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT COMPANIES.
 
We face strong competition in our geographic areas of operations. Our competitors include major integrated oil companies, interstate and intrastate pipelines. We compete with integrated companies that have greater access to raw natural gas supply and are less susceptible to fluctuations in price or volume, and some of our competitors that have greater financial resources may have an advantage in competing for acquisitions or other new business opportunities.
 
 
GROWING OUR BUSINESS BY CONSTRUCTING NEW PIPELINES AND PROCESSING FACILITIES SUBJECTS US TO CONSTRUCTION RISKS AND RISKS THAT RAW NATURAL GAS SUPPLIES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UPON COMPLETION OF THE FACILITIES.
 
One of the ways we intend to grow our business is through the construction of additions to our existing gathering systems, modification of our existing gas processing plant and construction of new processing facilities. The construction of gathering and processing facilities requires the expenditure of significant amounts of capital, which may exceed our expectations. Generally, we may have only limited raw natural gas supplies committed to these facilities prior to their construction. Moreover, we may construct facilities to capture anticipated future growth in production in a region in which anticipated production growth does not materialize. As a result, there is the risk that new facilities may not be able to attract enough raw natural gas to achieve our expected investment return, which could adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
 
A SIGNIFICANT COMPONENT OF OUR GROWTH STRATEGY WILL BE ACQUISITIONS AND WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE FUTURE ACQUISITIONS SUCCESSFULLY.
 
Our business strategy will emphasize growth through strategic acquisitions, but we cannot assure you that we will be able to identify attractive or willing acquisition candidates or that we will be able to acquire these candidates on economically acceptable terms. Competition for acquisition opportunities in our industry exists and may increase. Any increase in the level of competition for acquisitions may increase the cost of, or cause us to refrain from, completing acquisitions.
 
Our strategy of acquisitions is dependent upon, among other things, our ability to obtain debt and equity financing and possible regulatory approvals. Our ability to pursue our growth strategy may be hindered if we are not able to obtain financing or regulatory approvals, including those under federal and state antitrust laws. Our ability to grow through acquisitions and manage such growth will require us to invest in operational, financial and management information systems and to attract, retain, motivate and effectively manage our employees. The inability to manage the integration of acquisitions effectively could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and business. Pursuit of our acquisition strategy may cause our financial position and results of operations to fluctuate significantly from period to period.
 
IF WE ARE UNABLE TO MAKE ACQUISITIONS ON ECONOMICALLY AND OPERATIONALLY ACCEPTABLE TERMS, OUR FUTURE FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE MAY BE LIMITED.
 
There can be no assurance that:
 
s we will identify attractive acquisition candidates in the future;
s we will be able to acquire assets on economically acceptable terms;
s any acquisitions will not be dilutive to earnings and operating surplus; or
s any debt incurred to finance an acquisition will not affect our ability to make distributions to you.
 
If we are unable to make acquisitions on economically and operationally acceptable terms, our future financial performance will be limited to the performance of our present gas gathering network.
 
Our acquisition strategy involves many risks, including:
 
s difficulties inherent in the integration of operations and systems;
s the diversion of management's attention from other business concerns; and
s the potential loss of key employees of acquired businesses.
 
In addition, future acquisitions may involve significant expenditures. Depending upon the nature, size and timing of future acquisitions, we may be required to secure financing. We cannot assure you that additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms.
 
 
OUR BUSINESS IS DEPENDENT UPON PRICES AND MARKET DEMAND FOR NATURAL GAS AND PROPANE, WHICH ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL AND HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY VOLATILE.
 
We are subject to significant risks due to fluctuations in commodity prices, primarily with respect to the prices of gas that we may own as a result of our processing and distribution activities.
 
The markets and prices for residue gas depend upon factors beyond our control. These factors include demand for oil, and natural gas, which fluctuate with changes in market and economic conditions and other factors, including:
 
s the impact of weather on the demand for oil and natural gas;
s the level of domestic oil and natural gas production;
s the availability of imported oil and natural gas;
s the availability of local, intrastate and interstate transportation systems;
s the availability and marketing of competitive fuels;
s the impact of energy conservation efforts; and
s the extent of governmental regulation and taxation.
 
WE GENERALLY DO NOT OWN THE LAND ON WHICH OUR PIPELINES ARE CONSTRUCTED AND WE ARE SUBJECT TO THE POSSIBILITY OF INCREASED COSTS FOR THE LOSS OF LAND USE.
 
We generally do not own the land on which our pipelines are constructed. Instead, we obtain the right to construct and operate the pipelines on other people's land for a period of time. If we were to lose these rights, our business could be affected negatively.
 
RISKS RELATED TO THE RETAIL PROPANE AND ASSOCIATED BUSINESSES
 
s Decreases in the demand for propane because of warmer weather may adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.
 
s Weather conditions have a significant impact on the demand for propane for heating purposes. All of our propane customers rely heavily on propane as a heating fuel. The volume of propane sold is at its highest during the six-month peak heating season of October through March and is directly affected by the severity of the winter weather. We estimate that approximately two-thirds of our annual retail propane volume will be sold during these months. Actual weather conditions can vary substantially from quarter to quarter and year to year, significantly affecting our financial performance. Furthermore, warmer than normal temperatures in our service area can significantly decrease the total volume of propane we sell. Consequently, our operating results may vary significantly due to actual changes in temperature. Weather conditions in any quarter or year may have a material adverse effect on our operations.
 
s Sudden and sharp propane price increases that cannot be passed on to customers may adversely affect our profits, income, and cash flow.
 
s Energy efficiency and technology may reduce the demand for propane and our revenues.
 
s The national trend toward increased conservation and technological advances, including installation of improved insulation and the development of more efficient furnaces and other heating devices, has adversely affected the demand for propane by retail customers. Future conservation and efficiency measures or technological advances in heating, conservation, energy generation, or other devices might reduce demand for propane and our revenues.
 
s The propane business is highly regulated. New or stricter environmental, health, or safety regulations may increase our operating costs and reduce our net income.
 
s The propane business is subject to a wide range of federal, state, and local environmental, transportation, health and safety laws and regulations governing the storage, distribution, and transportation of propane. We may have increased costs in the future due to new or stricter safety, health, transportation, and environmental regulations or liabilities resulting from non-compliance with operating or other regulatory permits. The increase in any such costs may reduce our net income.
 
s We will be subject to all operating hazards and risks normally associated with handling, storing, transporting, and delivering combustible liquids such as propane for use by consumers. As a result, we may be a defendant in various legal proceedings and litigation arising in the ordinary course of business. Our insurance may not be adequate to protect us from all material expenses related to potential future claims for personal injury and property damage or that insurance will be available in the future at economical prices. In addition, the occurrence of a serious accident, whether or not we are involved, may have an adverse effect on the public's desire to use our products.
 
 
GOVERNMENT REGULATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS
 
Our business is regulated by certain local, state and federal laws and regulations relating to the exploration for, and the development, production, marketing, pricing, transportation and storage of, natural gas and oil. We are also subject to extensive and changing environmental and safety laws and regulations governing plugging and abandonment, the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise relating to environmental protection. In addition, we are subject to changing and extensive tax laws, and the effect of newly enacted tax laws cannot be predicted. The implementation of new, or the modification of existing, laws or regulations, including regulations which may be promulgated under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, could have a material adverse effect on the Company.
 
FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL REGULATORY MEASURES COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR BUSINESS.
 
While the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, does not directly regulate the major portions of our operations, federal regulation, directly or indirectly, influences certain aspects of our business and the market for our products. As a raw natural gas gatherer and not an operator of interstate transmission pipelines, we generally are exempt from FERC regulation under the Natural Gas Act of 1938, but FERC regulation still significantly affects our business. In recent years, FERC has pursued pro-competition policies in its regulation of interstate natural gas pipelines. However, we cannot assure you that FERC will continue this approach as it considers proposals by pipelines to allow negotiated rates not limited by rate ceilings, pipeline rate case proposals and revisions to rules and policies that may affect rights of access to natural gas transportation capacity.
 
While state public utility commissions do not regulate our business, state and local regulations do affect our business. We are subject to ratable take and common purchaser statutes in the states where we operate. Ratable take statutes generally require gatherers to take, without undue discrimination, natural gas production that may be tendered to the gatherer for handling. Similarly, common purchaser statutes generally require gatherers to purchase without undue discrimination as to source of supply or producer. These statutes are designed to prohibit discrimination in favor of one producer over another producer or one source of supply over another source of supply. These statutes also have the effect of restricting our right as an owner of gathering facilities to decide with whom we contract to purchase or transport natural gas. Federal law leaves any economic regulation of raw natural gas gathering to the states, and some of the states in which we operate have adopted complaint-based or other limited economic regulation of raw natural gas gathering activities. States in which we operate that have adopted some form of complaint-based regulation, like Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas, generally allow natural gas producers and shippers to file complaints with state regulators in an effort to resolve grievances relating to natural gas gathering access and rate discrimination. The states in which we conduct operations administer federal pipeline safety standards under the Pipeline Safety Act of 1968, and the "rural gathering exemption" under that statute that our gathering facilities currently enjoy may be restricted in the future. The "rural gathering exemption" under the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act of 1968 presently exempts substantial portions of our gathering facilities from jurisdiction under that statute, including those portions located outside of cities, towns, or any area designated as residential or commercial, such as a subdivision or shopping center.
 
GOVERNMENTAL REGULATION OF OUR PIPELINES COULD INCREASE OUR OPERATING COSTS.
 
Currently our operations involving the gathering of natural gas from wells are exempt from regulation under the Natural Gas Act. Section 1(b) of the Natural Gas Act provides that the provisions of the Act shall not apply to facilities used for the production or gathering of natural gas. Our physical dimensions and operations support the conclusion that our facilities perform primarily a gathering function. We should not, therefore, be subject to Natural Gas Act regulation. There, however, can be no assurance that this will remain the case. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's oversight of entities subject to the Natural Gas Act includes the regulation of rates, entry and exit of service, acquisition, construction and abandonment of transmission facilities, and accounting for regulatory purposes. The implementation of new laws or policies that would subject us to regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission under the Natural Gas Act could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and operations. Similarly, changes in the method or circumstances of operation, or in the configuration of facilities, could result in changes in our regulatory status. In addition, we are subject to federal and state safety laws that dictate the type of pipeline, quality of pipe protection, depth, methods of welding and other construction-related standards.
 
Our gas gathering operations are subject to regulation at the state level, which increases the costs of operating our pipeline facilities. Matters subject to regulation include rates, service and safety. We have been granted an exemption from regulation as a public utility in Texas. Presently, our rates are not regulated in Texas. Changes in state regulations, or our status under these regulations due to configuration changes in our operating facilities, that subject us to further regulation could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition. Litigation or governmental regulation relating to environmental protection and operational safety may result in substantial costs and liabilities.
 
OUR BUSINESS INVOLVES HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES AND MAY BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION.
 
Many of the operations and activities of our gathering systems, plants and other facilities are subject to significant federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations. These include, for example, laws and regulations that impose obligations related to air emissions and discharge of wastes from our facilities and the cleanup of hazardous substances that may have been released at properties currently or previously owned or operated by us or locations to which we have sent wastes for disposal. Various governmental authorities have the power to enforce compliance with these regulations and the permits issued under them, and violators are subject to administrative, civil and criminal penalties, including civil fines, injunctions or both. Liability may be incurred without regard to fault for the remediation of contaminated areas. Private parties, including the owners of properties through which our gathering systems pass, may also have the right to pursue legal actions to enforce compliance as well as to seek damages for non-compliance with environmental laws and regulations or for personal injury or property damage.
 
There is inherent risk of the incurrence of environmental costs and liabilities in our business due to our handling of natural gas and other petroleum products, air emissions related to our operations, historical industry operations, waste disposal practices and the prior use of natural gas flow meters containing mercury. In addition, the possibility exists that stricter laws, regulations or enforcement policies could significantly increase our compliance costs and the cost of any remediation that may become necessary. We cannot assure you that we will not incur material environmental costs and liabilities. Furthermore, we cannot assure you that our insurance will provide sufficient coverage in the event an environmental claim is made against us.
 
Our business may be adversely affected by increased costs due to stricter pollution control requirements or liabilities resulting from non-compliance with required operating or other regulatory permits. New environmental regulations might adversely affect our products and activities, including processing, storage and transportation, as well as waste management and air emissions. Federal and state agencies also could impose additional safety requirements, any of which could affect our profitability.
 
RISK OF ADDITIONAL COSTS AND LIABILITIES RELATED TO ENVIRONMENTAL AND SAFETY REGULATIONS AND CLAIMS
 
Our pipeline operations are subject to various federal, state and local environmental, safety, health and other laws, which can increase the cost of planning, designing, installing and operating such facilities. There can be no assurance that costs and liabilities relating to compliance will not be incurred in the future. Moreover, it is possible that other developments, such as increasingly strict environmental and safety laws, regulations and enforcement policies thereunder, and claims for damages to property or persons resulting from our operations, could result in additional costs to and liabilities for us.
 

SOVEREIGN RISK
 
We are focusing on the development of infrastructure projects through our Mexican entity, Terranova Energia S. de R.L. de C.V., in the nation of the United Mexican States (Mexico). The risk of indirect or regulatory actions by local, state or federal authorities in Mexico which may inhibit, delay, hinder or block projects under development in Mexico is very high given the history of operations conducted by past businesses other than the Company in Mexico. There is a substantial risk that a set of actions taken by commission or omission by the various actors in the public, private, nongovernmental and/or social sectors could negatively impact a project or investment in Mexico. The legal system employed in Mexico is dramatically different in its structure and method of operation compared to the common law foundation present in the United States of America. The level of legal protection afforded investors by the North American Free Trade Agreement has not materially improved from a foreign investor's viewpoint.
 
There can be no assurance that a commercially viable project will be completed due to the above factors which could result in commercial competitors trying to circumvent the market system through the exploitation of undocumented, extra-official channels of influence that constitute unfair competition. Federal, state and local authorities are not well coordinated in their legal protections and improper influence and competition may arise from any level of government to disrupt or destroy the commercial viability of investments by foreign investors. While the Company has taken precautions to limit its investments to prudent levels, there is a continuing risk of adverse activities arising from the above sources that could impair or result in the entire loss of investment in otherwise commercially viable projects initiated by the Company in Mexico.
 
PIPELINE SYSTEM OPERATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO OPERATIONAL HAZARDS AND UNFORESEEN INTERRUPTIONS.
 
The operations of our pipeline systems are subject to hazards and unforeseen interruptions, including natural disasters, adverse weather, accidents or other events, beyond our control. A casualty occurrence might result in injury and extensive property or environmental damage. Although we intend to maintain customary insurance coverages for gathering systems of similar capacity, we can offer no assurance that these coverages will be sufficient for any casualty loss we may incur.
 
OPERATING RISKS OF NATURAL GAS OPERATIONS
 
The natural gas business involves certain operating hazards. The availability of a ready market for our natural gas products also depends on the proximity of reserves to, and the capacity of, natural gas gathering systems, pipelines and trucking or terminal facilities. As a result, substantial liabilities to third parties or governmental entities may be incurred, the payment of which could reduce or eliminate the funds available for exploration, development or acquisitions or result in the loss of our properties. In accordance with customary industry practices, we maintain insurance against some, but not all, of such risks and losses. We do not carry business interruption insurance. The occurrence of such an event not fully covered by insurance could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
 
OUR BUSINESS INVOLVES MANY HAZARDS AND OPERATIONAL RISKS, SOME OF WHICH MAY NOT BE COVERED BY INSURANCE.
 
Our operations are subject to the many hazards inherent in the gathering, compressing, treating and processing of raw natural gas and NGLs and storage of residue gas, including ruptures, leaks and fires. These risks could result in substantial losses due to personal injury and/or loss of life, severe damage to and destruction of property and equipment and pollution or other environmental damage and may result in curtailment or suspension of our related operations. We are not fully insured against all risks incident to our business. If a significant accident or event occurs that is not fully insured, it could adversely affect our operations and financial condition.
 

INSURANCE
 
Companies engaged in the petroleum products distribution and storage business may be sued for substantial damages in the event of an actual or alleged accident or environmental contamination. We maintain $2,000,000 of liability insurance. There can be no assurance that we will be able to continue to maintain liability insurance at a reasonable cost in the future, or that a potential liability will not exceed the coverage limits. Nor can there be any assurance that the amount of insurance carried by us will enable us to satisfy any claims for which we might be held liable resulting from the conduct of our business operations.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
Matter No. 1:
 
On January 6, 2003, we were served as a third party defendant in a lawsuit titled Northern Natural Gas Company vs. Betty Lou Sheerin vs. Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation, ZG Gathering, Ltd. and Ken Lay, in the 150th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas, Cause Number 2002-C1-16421. The lawsuit was initiated by Northern Natural Gas (“Northern”) when it sued Betty Lou Sheerin (“Sheerin”) for her failure to make payments on a note she executed payable to Northern in the original principal amount of $1,950,000. Northern's suit was filed on November 13, 2002. Sheerin answered Northern's lawsuit on January 6, 2003. Sheerin's answer generally denied Northern's claims and raised the affirmative defenses of fraudulent inducement by Northern, estoppel, waiver and the further claim that the note does not comport with the legal requirements of a negotiable instrument. Sheerin seeks a judicial ruling that Northern be denied any recovery on the note. Sheerin's answer included a counterclaim against Northern, ZG Gathering, and Ken Lay generally alleging, among other things, that Northern, ZG Gathering, Ltd. and Ken Lay, fraudulently induced her execution of the note. Northern has filed a general denial of Sheerin's counterclaims. Sheerin's answer included a third party cross claim against Tidelands Oil and Gas Corporation (“Tidelands”). She alleges that Tidelands entered into an agreement to purchase the Zavala Gathering System from ZG Gathering Ltd. and that, as a part of the agreement, Tidelands agreed to satisfy all of the obligations due and owing to Northern, thereby relieving Sheerin of all obligations she had to Northern on the $1,950,000 promissory note in question. Tidelands and Sheerin agreed to delay the Tidelands' answer date in order to allow time for mediation of the case. Tidelands participated in mediation on March 11, 2003. The case was not settled at that time. Tidelands answered the Sheerin suit on March 26, 2003. Tidelands' answer denies all of Sheerin's allegations.
 
On May 24 and June 16, 2004 respectively, Betty Lou Sheerin filed her first and second amended original answer, affirmative defenses, special exceptions and second amended original counterclaim, second amended original third party cross-actions and requests for disclosure. In these amended pleadings, she sued Michael Ward, Royis Ward, James B. Smith, Carl Hessel and Ahmed Karim in their individual capacities. Her claims against these individuals are for fraud, breach of contract, breach of the Uniform Commercial Code, breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing and conversion. Sheerin has now non-suited her claims against Michael Ward, Royis Ward, and James B. Smith.
 
In September 2002, as a pre-closing deposit to the purchase of the Zavala Gathering System, the Company executed a $300,000 promissory note to Betty L. Sheerin, a partner of ZG Gathering, Ltd. In addition, the Company issued 1,000,000 shares of its common stock to various partners of ZG Gathering, Ltd. On December 3, 2003, Sheerin filed a separate lawsuit against Tidelands in the 150th District Court of Bexar County, Texas on this promissory note seeking a judgment against Tidelands for the principle amount of the note, plus interest. On December 29th, 2003, Tidelands answered this lawsuit denying liability on the note. On April 1, 2004, Tidelands filed a plea in abatement asking the court to dismiss or abate Sheerin's lawsuit on the $300,000 promissory note as it was related to and its outcome was dependent on the outcome of the Sheerin third party cross action against Tidelands in Cause Number 2002-C1-16421. The Company believes that the promissory note and shares of common stock should be cancelled based upon the outcome of the litigation described above. Accordingly, our financial statements reflect this belief.
 
On September 15, 2004 and again on October 15, 2004 respectively, Sheerin amended her pleadings to include a third and fourth amended third party cross action against Tidelands adding a claim for the $300,000 promissory note. In these amended pleadings, Sheerin also deleted her claims against Carl Hessel and Ahmed Karim (“Company Directors”). After adding the claim on the $300,000 promissory note to the third party claims of Sheerin against Tidelands in Cause No. 2002-C1-16421, Sheerin dismissed Cause Number 2002-C1-16421.
 
Tidelands won a partial summary judgment against Sheerin as to all of her tort claims pled against Tidelands, save and except only her claim for conversion of 500,000 shares of Tidelands stock.
 
Sheerin seeks damages against Tidelands for indemnity for any sums found to be due from her to Northern, unspecified amounts of actual damages, statutory damages, unspecified amounts of exemplary damages, attorneys fees, costs of suit, and prejudgment and post judgment interest.
 
 
On August 5, 2005, Northern filed its Fourth Amended Original Petition which, for the first time, named Tidelands as a defendant to Northern. Northern seeks to impose liability on Tidelands for $1,950.000 promissory note signed by McDay Energy Partners, Ltd. (the predecessor to ZG Gathering, Ltd.) and Sheerin and the $1,700,000 promissory note signed by McDay only. Northern contends that Tidelands is alternatively liable to Northern for payment of both such promissory notes totaling $3,709,914 plus interest because Northern is a third party beneficiary under a December 3, 2001 purchase and sale agreement between ZG Gathering, Ltd., and Tidelands claiming that in such agreement Tidelands agreed to assume and satisfy all indebtedness due and owing Northern by Sheerin and ZG Gathering, Ltd. Northern also claims that it is entitled to foreclosure of a lien on the gas gathering system and pipeline that was the subject of the promissory notes in question. Tidelands won a summary judgment motion it filed against Northern and the court has now dismissed Northern's claims against Tidelands.
 
On November 28, 2005, ZG Gathering, Ltd. and ZG Pipeline Management ("ZG") filed its answer to Northern's Fifth Amended Petition, its counter-claim against Northern, and its answer and cross claim against Tidelands. ZG contends that the promissory notes given by ZG and Sheerin to Northern were procured by Northern's fraudulent misrepresentations and it claims unspecified amounts of damages against Northern. ZG's cross action against Tidelands claims Tidelands entered into an agreement to purchase the Zavala Gathering System from ZG and that, as part of that agreement, Tidelands agreed to satisfy the $3,700,914 Northern indebtedness of ZG, and to defend, indemnify, and hold ZG and Sheerin harmless from such indebtedness, to pay off a Sheerin loan of $300,000, and to issue 1 million shares of Tidelands stock, of which 500,000 was to be free trading shares. ZG claims that Tidelands breached this agreement by failing to satisfy the Northern indebtedness, failing to defend and indemnify it from such debt, failing to pay off the $300,000 note, failing to issue the free trading shares in Tidelands, and by placing a stop transfer order on the restricted stock that was issued by Tidelands. ZG seeks specific performance of the agreement, recovery of an unspecified amount of damages, and its attorney's fees.
 
On March 6, 2006, the Court granted Tidelands’ motion for summary judgment against NNG and dismissed NNG’s suit against Tidelands. On March 16, 2006, the Court denied Tidelands’ motion for summary judgment against Sheerin on Tidelands’ affirmative defense of mutual mistake. On July 19, 2006, the Court denied ZG’s motion for summary judgment to strike Tidelands’ affirmative defense of mutual mistake.
 
Trial is scheduled to begin May 7, 2007, unless a settlement is completed.  A settlement agreement which is conditioned on funding and which involves Tidelands’ sale of certain assets has been signed by all but one of the litigation parties. Based on negotiations, the Company has reserved $2,250,000 as an estimated litigation settlement and that amount has been included in this report.
 
Matter No. 2:
 
Cause No. GM 501625, Senna Hills, Ltd., Plaintiff, vs. Sonterra Energy Corp., Defendant, was filed in the 53rd Judicial District of Travis County, Texas and Cause No. GN 501626, HBH Development Co., LLC, Plaintiff, vs. Sonterra Energy Corp., Defendant, was filed in the 98th Judicial District Court of Travis County, Texas. The above matters were each filed against Sonterra in May 2005 and involve the same claims arising from the same propane service agreement. In each case, the plaintiff initially brought claims against Sonterra arising from Sonterra’s failure, as an assignee of the agreement, to pay easement use fees to the plaintiff. Sonterra obtained summary judgment as to the plaintiffs’ respective breach of contract and failure of assignment claims arising from the failure to pay easement use fees. The cases were not, however, fully dismissed because the plaintiffs added new causes of action for failure to pay easement use fees, claims for unpaid developer bonus, reformation of the agreements to require payment of easement use fees and alleged failure of assignment. These separate lawsuits have since been consolidated into one suit for purposes of pretrial and trial. The May 2007 trial date has been continued and will likely be reset in September 2007.
 
Matter No. 3:
 
Cause No. GN 500948, Goodson Builders, Ltd., Plaintiff, vs. Jim Blackwell, BNC Engineering, Et. Al, Defendants, was filed April 7, 2005, in the 345th District Court of Travis County, Texas. This case involves a claim that Defendant Toll Brothers Property, LP (“Toll Brothers”) sold Plaintiff Goodson Builder, Ltd. (“Plaintiff” or “Goodson”) property without disclosing a propane easement. Plaintiff sued Sonterra Energy Corp. (“Sonterra”) for trespassing through the use of the easement. Goodson’s primary claim is against the seller for fraud and non-disclosure. Toll Brothers has responded with a claim for sanctions because the claim is frivolous. Toll Brothers offers a witness who is Plaintiff’s former employee and took pictures of the propane tank prior to the Plaintiff’s purchase. Goodson seeks damages in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Insurance would not cover these damages.
 
The case is pending summary judgment. The Company is contesting the case vigorously; however, the Company is willing to settle if the Plaintiff is willing to drop the claim.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Business Overview
 
Our products and services are primarily focused on development and operation of transportation, processing, distribution and storage projects of natural gas and natural gas liquids in the northeastern states of Mexico (Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas) and the states of Texas and California in the United States of America.
 
We derive our revenue from transportation fees from delivery of natural gas to Conagas, the local distribution company in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, through the pipeline owned by Reef Ventures, L.P. and the sale of propane gas to residential customers through the assets owned by Sonterra Energy Corporation. Sonterra also designs and constructs residential propane delivery systems for new residential developments in Central Texas. We derive revenue from this activity in two ways, the first being from construction revenue for yard lines and meter sets installed to a homeowner's lot, and the second being the sale of LPG gas to customers in the residential subdivisions. Sonterra Energy Corporation has recently begun performing construction services for third party utility companies in order to more efficiently utilize its existing compentencies and assets.
 
With respect to our pipeline system owned by Reef Ventures, L.P., management has evaluated an expansion of the pipeline in Coahuila to serve new markets along the state highway No. 57 corridor to Monclova, Coahuila. We currently expect that Reef Ventures, L.P. will not be participating in the construction of additional pipelines in Mexico to reach these new markets. The required pipeline will be constructed by end users or an intermediate purchaser of the natural gas. If constructed, Reef Ventures, L.P. is expecting to simply continue to transport the additional volumes of natural gas required for these markets through its existing facilities which would be interconnected in Mexico to the new pipeline that is required to reach these potential markets. Management believes the timeline for the initiation of construction for such pipeline project in Mexico is likely to be a 2009 event with completion in 2010. The increased volume for the Reef Ventures pipeline from such an event could approximate 5 million cubic feet per day. The current baseload for the Conagas system in Piedras Negras is approximately 5.5 million cubic feet per day of which Reef Ventures LP transports 1/3 to 1/2 of the total volume. The expected end users for increased market demand in the Piedras Negras, Coahuila area would be a cardboard packaging and bottling operation for a proposed beer brewing facility. In December 2006, Grupo Modelo announced its intention to build the first phase of a new brewery in the year 2010. In addition to these potential developments, management believes that increasing volumes of natural gas can be transported in its existing facilities. In 2005, which was the final year of a two-year contractual nomination scheme, the Reef Ventures pipeline was carrying only half the actual baseload volume (and none of the swing volume) was being transported to CONAGAS in Piedras Negras. In 2006, management did not successfully increase the volumes transported on the natural gas line. We believe that if given adequate supplies, the Reef Ventures pipeline can transport all of the current base load and the swing requirements of CONAGAS which would result in a doubling of volumes and revenues for the pipeline. However the current dependence on volume increases in order to achieve the necessary rate of return on this investment has been unsuccessful. Accordingly, management has sought to increase revenues by imposing a minimum demand charge for the reservation of capacity on the pipeline. Negotiations are currently underway to achieve that objective. In the event these negotiations are unsuccessful, a sale of all or part of the Reef Ventures, LP pipeline will be considered in order to retire the current indebtedness of $4,785,003 currently owed to Impact International, LLC. This debt matures at the end of May 2008 and is currently increasing each quarter due to negative amortization as a result of the poor revenue return from the current transportation fee arrangements.
 
Sonterra Energy Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tidelands, entered into the residential propane distribution business on November 1, 2004 with its acquisition of 850 existing customers located in 15 subdivisions in the vicinity of Austin, Texas. At December 31, 2006, Sonterra had increased its number of meter hookups to 1,155 and is expecting a 15% rate of increase in the number of new meter hookups in 2007. There are approximately 1,095 unmetered future lots within the above subdivisions where propane service can be connected. As new homes are constructed on these lots our customer base will grow. Construction activities continue in the existing subdivisions where expansion phases of development will result in the addition of approximately 170 customers in 2007. Sonterra's participation in the launch of new subdivisions is also occurring, as exemplified by the signing of a construction contract with the developers of Las Brisas at Ensenada Shores (located on Canyon Lake), where 75 new lots with propane service have been completed for sale to new customers. This subdivision's second phase of development is expected to add another 175 lots. Construction continues on Section 205 of the Cordillera Ranch subdivision, which added 50 more residential customers in the fourth quarter of 2006. Sonterra has expanded into additional markets as evidenced by the signing of a construction contract to build a central propane system for a multi-use retail center in Lago Vista, Texas. The system will serve five to ten large commercial customers including two restaurants.
 
 

Sonora Pipeline, LLC, will own and operate the U.S. (Texas) pipeline segments to be constructed in connection with the Burgos Hub pipeline, LNG regasification terminal and gas storage projects which will interconnect to the U.S. via two international pipeline crossings in Hidalgo County, Texas. Management has filed applications for a certificate of public convenience and necessity and two presidential permits for cross-border pipeline construction into Mexico with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. If the permits are granted and the pipelines are completed and fully operational, these international pipeline crossings near Mission and Progreso, Texas would result in the delivery of natural gas into the state of Tamaulipas and the pipelines owned by our Mexican subsidiary, Terranova Energia S. de R.L. de C.V.
 
The Company is focusing on the development of the Burgos Hub projects through its Mexican entity, Terranova Energia S. de R.L. de C.V., in Mexico. Terranova Energia is focused on project development and implementation of a natural gas storage and transportation infrastructure to support the integration of Northeastern Mexico and South Texas and the related economic growth of the border regions.
 
Tidelands and Terranova Energia have hired project development advisors in the United States and Mexico. The Terranova Energia advisors include Project Consulting Services, Inc., and Ritch Mueller, SC, Abogados. The Tidelands/Sonora advisors include Netherland Sewell & Associates, Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw, LLP, BNC Engineering, LLC, HSBC Securities, USA, Inc. and Ross, Marsh & Foster.
 
The Terranova Energia project was developed to serve the needs of CFE, the Mexican federal electricity commission, to manage swing and seasonal spread in its procurement and dispatch of natural gas to its combined cycle power plants in Northern Mexico. The region's forecasted growth will require additional natural gas for power generation in the region. The same need to manage swing and seasonal spread is present for the industrial users of natural gas in Northern Mexico, in particular, the industrial users located in the Monterrey, Nuevo Leon area.

Our various projects in South Texas and Northeast Mexico are collectively called the Burgos Hub Project. Our medium term goals, subject to a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, regulatory permitting, engineering design, financing, construction and operating agreements, are focused on the Brasil storage field and Terranova Occidente pipeline.

The pipelines proposed are (A) the Occidente Section comprised of: (1) a pipeline from the Brasil Storage field to Nuevo Progresso with a proposed international pipeline crossing into the U.S., (2) a pipeline from Brasil storage to Station 19 up to Arguelles which is another proposed international pipeline crossing into U.S. and (3) a pipeline from Pemex's Station 19 south of Reynosa which will extend southward to the Monterey Nuevo Leon area; and (B) the Oriente Section from the offshore regasification station to Norte Puerto Mezquital proceeding to the Brazil storage field. The Occidente Section will include approximately 323 kilometers of pipeline and the Oriente Section will contain approximately 149 kilometers of pipeline. Our long term goal includes the construction of the offshore LNG regasification station.
 
The proposed international pipeline crossings into South Texas will interconnect with other pipelines at the Donna Station and the Valero Gilmore Plant. At the Donna Station, our potential interconnects into Texas pipelines are with TETCO, TGPL and Texas Gas Services. At the Arguelles crossing and the Valero Gilmore Plant, our potential interconnects are with HPL, Calpine and Kinder Morgan. The Terranova pipeline capacity is estimated at 1.0 BCFD (billion cubic feet per day).
 
The Terranova pipelines have been designed for 30 and 36 inch diameter with bi-directional flow. The pipeline from the proposed LNG regasification terminal to the Brasil field is anticipated to be a 36 inch diameter pipeline and from the Brasil field to Monterey and international crossings are anticipated to be 30 inch diameter pipelines.

On June 5, 2006, Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation subsidiary, Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V. was awarded a Permit (#G/183/TRA 2006) by the Comision Reguladora de Energia de Mexico (CRE) to begin construction of the Terranova Occidente and Oriente pipeline portions of its Burgos Hub Project In the second quarter of 2007, Terranova expects to file an application with the CRE to amend its existing Mexican pipeline permit to allow for the construction of an additional segment of pipeline which will extend from Station 19 to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. This filing is being pursued in response to commercial interest from industrial customers and potential service opportunity for the power generation facilities proposed by the Comision Federal de Electridad (CFE) in northeast Mexico. Discussion with staff at the regulatory body, CRE, indicates a timeline for approval of the amended permit by the fourth quarter of 2007.
 
 
The proposed underground natural gas storage facility will be located in the depleted reservoir at the B1 Horizon-Brasil Field and include above ground facilities. Our design proposal for the use of this depleted reservoir as a storage facility was prepared by Netherland Sewell. Netherland Sewell, after geological and mechanical modeling, reported the reservoir at the B1 horizon as suitable for natural gas storage. The design capacity of the storage field contemplates incremental increases in capacity over three seasons. The first season capacity is 25 BCF (billion cubic feet), second season capacity is 40 BCF and third season onward is 50 BCF. The design proposes that natural gas be injected into the reservoir at 350 MMCFD (million cubic feet per day) at pressures from 2,400 psi up to 3,200 psi. Extraction flows of natural gas will be kept at 500 MMCFD to maintain structural integrity of the reservoir. The storage facility plans call for 22 injection and extraction wells. The above ground facilities will include compression stations.
 
Additionally, we submitted the storage permit to the CRE on August 5, 2005 and it was accepted for full review on October 14, 2005. Several unique questions are presented by the filing of this permit due to the proposed location and the lack of previous storage permit applications having been considered by the CRE. The CRE, with cooperation from Terranova, is conducting discussions with PEMEX, the energy ministry of the United Mexican States (SENER) and the Mexican Petroleum Institute (MPI) to determine the mechanism for the grant of use rights for the depleted reservoir as a natural gas storage facility and the proper legal vesting of such rights with the holder of the CRE permit to construct own and operate a gas storage facility. Terranova expects that these issues regarding the Company’s storage permit application will be resolved by the CRE Commissioners in the fourth quarter of 2007.
 
The proposed Offshore LNG Regasification Station will be based on technology developed by the Norwegian company TORP Technology. It utilizes an unmanned floating station called a HiLoad. It has a peak capacity of 1.4 BCFD (billion cubic feet per day). This technology permits any LNG carrier vessel to connect and carry out regasification operations without any vessel modifications. The LNG station will be located no less than 40 nautical miles from the coast at a depth of 450 feet. A support station with a power generation system and central control will be located on-shore. A buoy will support the mooring of the LNG carrier vessels. Electrical power cables, control umbilicals and pipelines will connect the HiLoad to the on-shore support station. We expect this phase of the project to be developed as the last phase of the project given the tightness of LNG supply in the Atlantic Basin for the next four years. A further influence on the timing and implementation of this phase of the project will be the degree of progress made in actual construction of permitted LNG receiving terminals in the Corpus Christi, Texas area.
 
There are significant challenges for the natural gas supply to the power generation industry in Northeastern Mexico. Presently, there are three LNG regasification projects permitted or under construction in Mexico at Altamira, Rosarito and Manzanillo. Additionally, there are new electrical generation plants and associated pipelines under construction. The CFE has forecasted natural gas demand growth in the region from 2004 through year 2013. The CFE forecasts gas demand will increase from 1.7 BCFD in 2004 to 4.2 BCFD in 2013. We believe that natural gas storage facilities in northern Mexico will provide a reliable, flexible gas supplies while creating conditions for competitive natural gas pricing.
 
With the assistance of our financial advisory firm, we have determined that financing of the project should be possible under a commercial structure acceptable to debt providers that would involve long-term capacity reservation agreements with creditworthy counterparties for each constituent element of the project. Another essential factor that is critical for the project's ability to raise debt financing is the ability of Terranova to attract equity capital from strategic and/or financial investors in the amounts which are likely to be required by debt providers. Our financial advisory firm continues to assist us in making presentations of the project to the potential strategic and financial equity investors. We have received positive feedback from several such parties and active negotiations are continuing under confidentiality agreements with several firms, including energy enterprises headquartered in Mexico. On this basis, we could conclude that the project, in its currently envisioned configuration, could attract considerable equity capital from the potential investors. Investor appetite will depend on our ability to obtain an acceptable commercial structure, relevant permits and other regulatory approvals and the fulfillment of other conditions standard for non-recourse project financing. We believe that in 2007 the Company will bring to completion our efforts to obtain the required major permit approvals and the co-investment in the project of industry partners. Given the timeline necessary to obtain debt financing, execute an EPC contract, and the actual construction time for the first phase of the project (the pipeline from South Texas to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon), we are projecting the first operating cash flows from our Burgos Hub Project to be received in the year 2010.
 
Esperanza Energy, LLC ("Esperanza") was formed as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company in March 2006 to evaluate the feasibility of developing an offshore, deep-water liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving and regasification terminal near Long Beach, California. Esperanza would utilize TORP Technology's HiLoad LNG Regas unit that attaches to an LNG tanker, directly vaporizes the LNG as it is offloaded and injects the regasified natural gas into an undersea pipeline for transportation of the natural gas to onshore metering stations and transmission pipelines to supply nearby gas markets. The TORP HiLoad LNG Regas unit eliminates the need for extensive above-ground storage tanks or large marine structures required for berthing and processing of the LNG. Esperanza has conducted its feasibility study for this project with the assistance of best-in-class LNG, environmental, pipeline and legal advisors and has concluded that the project is technically, environmentally and commercially feasible. Esperanza will develop the necessary information in 2007 to file applications with California state and U.S. Federal agencies for appropriate permits to construct, own and operate the LNG facilities.
 
 

The expected timeline for development of the Port Esperanza project is influenced by the preparation of the application in a form sufficient to be “deemed complete” by the Maritime Administration and Coast Guard which are the principal Federal agencies with permit jurisdiction for LNG terminal development in the offshore United States of America waters. After an application is deemed complete, the process of obtaining the approvals is often longer than the statutory time period of approximately one year due to “time out” or suspension of the running of the clock on the application process due to issues raised during the review of the permit application. California state and local agency approvals can also impact the permit approval process beyond the normal time expectations. The focus of the Port Esperanza project team has been to design a project that has anticipated and mitigated these risks during its design phase. We have assembled best-in-class team members with previous offshore LNG terminal development experience with a view of profiting from their experience in dealing with the various issues raised in the development of an LNG receiving facility in California. Nevertheless, in view of the relative shortage of LNG supply in the Pacific Basin through the year 2011, we anticipate that the first operational cash flows from the Port Esperanza project would occur in the year 2012. The projected capital expenditures for the project are significant and depending on the final configuration may cost as much as $1 billion USD with the cost of the permitting process for the USCG/MARAD permit estimated in excess of $20 million USD. It is expected that a major portion of the initial development cost and the required equity in the project will be obtained from co-venturers. Active discussions are underway with several potential partners who would invest in the project. An announcement concerning partners is expected by the end of the second quarter 2007, to be followed by the initiation of the process of developing the application for the USCG/MARAD permit which is estimated to require a six month timeline prior to submission of the application.
 
Given the large capital outlays required for development of the Burgos Hub Project and Port Esperanza, it is likely that the Company will be diluted with respect to the project level cash flows by virtue of the sale of interests in the projects to third party partners. Similarly, the Company as an integrated enterprise continues to experience negative cash flows and will require sequential rounds of deficit fundings which will likely result in further dilution to the Company shareholders. The Board of Directors is considering all options for dealing with these issues including the merger or acquisition of profitable and complementary business operations with a view towards eliminating Company operating deficits and efficient utilization of tax loss carryforwards.
 
Results of Operations
 
YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2006 COMPARED WITH YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2005
 
REVENUES: The Company reported revenues of $2,222,598 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, as compared with revenues from continuing operations of $1,861,323 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. The increase was divided between each revenue stream: Reef Ventures, LP, increased income from gas transportation fees from $231,077 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $285,098 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, an increase of $54,021; Sonterra Energy Corporation increased propane gas sales to $1,740,870 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, from $1,494,679 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, an increase of $246,191 due mainly to an increase in total customers served and product prices. Construction service revenues for Sonterra Energy Corporation increased to $180,693 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006 compared to $135,567 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, an increase of $45,126. Tidelands Exploration & Production Corporation had $15,737 of natural gas revenues for its first quarter of operations.
 
TOTAL COSTS AND EXPENSES: Total costs and expenses from continuing operations decreased from $15,171,916 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $14,162,432 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006. The most significant decreases occurred in Sales, General and Administrative and Impairment Losses, which decreases more than offset increased interest expense due to default costs incurred with a private placement of convertible debt (See Note 16 of Audited Financial Statements) whereas a reserve for litigation of $2,250,000 was recorded which reduced the decrease of expenses to $1,009,484.
 
COST OF SALES: Total Cost of Sales increased from $1,003,386 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $1,173,561 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, an increase of $170,175, of which $164,216 was attributable to Sonterra Energy Corporation. This increase resulted from increased cost and volume of propane sold and, to a lesser extent, increased construction services.
 
OPERATING EXPENSES: Operating expenses from continuing operations which are expenses related to the operation of Company assets in an active business segment increased from $202,766 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $420,200 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, an increase of $217,434; $165,215 of this increase was from the operating expenses incurred by Sonterra Energy Corporation due to increased revenues. Depreciation expense decreased from $485,481 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $466,241 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, reflecting a decrease in depreciable assets for the respective periods due to impairment of certain long-lived assets in 2005.
 
INTEREST EXPENSE:  Interest expense increased from $611,363 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $3,405,778 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, primarily as a result of three factors: (a) interest penalties in the amount of $1,696,982 in connection with the payment of stock to the various investors upon the defaults described in Notes 16 of the Audited Financial Statements, (b) liquidated damage payments in the amount of $478,155 paid in cash to the various investors as described in Note 16 of the Financial Statements, and (c) interest paid in connection with the convertible debenture financing as described in Note 16 of the Audited Financial Statements, in the amount of $763,499 during the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2006. No income or expense for Beneficial Conversion Feature Interest was recorded for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, as compared to income of $756,339 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, due to a reversal of previously charged Beneficial Conversion Feature Interest. The market price for the Company’s common stock at the relevant measurement dates during the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, was less than the conversion price for the debentures issued on January 20, 2006. Accordingly, there was no benefit to the holders of the debentures in the event of conversion during those periods and no beneficial conversion interest charge was recorded.  
 
SALES, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE: Sales, General and Administrative Expenses decreased by $1,586,597 during the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, to a total amount of $6,446,652 as compared to $8,033,249 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. This decrease was due primarily to the absence of financing costs paid to Impact International, LLC, during the period ended December 31, 2006 as compared to financing costs of $1,272,500 paid to Impact International, LLC, during the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. The remaining decrease in Sales, General & Administrative expense was due to a reduction in the issuance of common stock for consulting services during the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, versus the twelve months ended December 31, 2005.
 
IMPAIRMENT LOSS: No expense for impairment loss was recorded for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, compared to $5,200,000 of impairment of goodwill and $392,000 impairment of long-lived assets, recorded as losses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005.
 
DERIVATIVE GAIN:  Gain from embedded derivative instrument liabilities decreased from $5,168,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, to $0 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006. The warrants issued in connection with the January 20, 2006, financing had an exercise price that was greater the fair market value of the Company’s common stock at the relevant measurement dates. Accordingly, no derivative gain or reduction in liability for the issuance of the warrants in this financing transaction was recorded for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006.
 
 
NET LOSS: Net loss of ($7,662,904) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, increased to ($11,836,925) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, an increase in the amount of loss of $4,174,021. The principal reason for this amount of increase in net loss was the lack of Derivative Gains to offset Loss from Operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, versus the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 recording of a $2,250,000 reserve for litigation. Included in the net loss of ($11,836,925) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, is $2,164,300 of expenses for employment contract costs, directors fees and legal fees paid by issuance of common stock.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES: The independent auditors report on our December 31, 2006 financial statements included in this Form 10-K states that our difficulty in generating sufficient cash flow to meet our obligations and sustain operations raises substantial doubts about the our ability to continue as a going concern
 
With regard to liquidity and adequacy of capital resources, management believes that the Company will need additional equity or debt financing after the first quarter of 2007. Management plans to raise additional capital through a variety of fund raising methods during fiscal 2007 and to pursue all available financing alternatives in this regard. Management may also consider a variety of potential partnership or strategic alliances to strengthen its financial position. In the event that a decision to proceed with the offshore LNG regas terminal project in Southern California is made during the upcoming months, additional funding for the permit process will be needed beyond the amounts currently required. Furthermore, the Company will need to raise additional capital to fund ongoing development activities for its Mexican subsidiary, Terranova Energia and also to fund operating overhead at the parent company level and the possible cost of a litigation settlement or adverse verdict if the case goes to trial. New issuance of common stock sufficient to retire the outstanding debentures and to provide additional required capital is under active negotiation. No assurance can be made that such capital can be acquired in a timely fashion or at all. Furthermore, if capital is available through these sources, if may be at terms that are disadvantageous to the Company and its shareholders.  
 
In light of these possible outcomes and the current cash resources available for the sustenance of corporate operations, management has taken action to reduce overhead costs and otherwise obtain cash resources for the Company. Actions completed include reduction of staff, assignment of the Suite License Agreement with the San Antonio Spurs, LLC, to a former officer, collection of a stock subscription receivable from a past officer, collection of an account receivable from an officer, accelerated collection of past due accounts from customers of Sonterra Energy and Reef Ventures, LP, and collection of the $283,854 balance of the Note Receivable for the related party aircraft charter services including termination of those services to the Company.
 
Direct capital expenditures during the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, totaled $2,814,512. The capital expenditures were composed of increased pre-construction costs regarding potential international pipeline crossings and storage facilities in Mexico, pre-construction costs regarding an offshore LNG terminal in Southern California, additional machinery, equipment, trucks, autos and trailers for the operation of the Sonterra Energy Corporation propane systems and $502,060 invested in a natural gas pipeline and nearby leases for development. Total debt increased from $5,722,322 at December 31, 2005, to $13,034,046 including the aforementioned reserve for litigation at December 31, 2006. The increase in total debt is due primarily to the issuance of $6,569,750 of convertible debentures in the financing transaction of January 20, 2006. Net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, was ($11,836,925) an increase in net loss of 54.5% from the net loss of ($7,662,904) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. Basic and diluted net loss per common share increased to ($0.15) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, as compared to ($0.11) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. The net loss per share calculation for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, included an increase in actual and equivalent shares outstanding.
 
YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2005 COMPARED WITH YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2004
 
REVENUES: The Company reported revenues of $1,861,323 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 as compared with revenues from continuing operations of $1,883,838 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. The primary differences in year to year results occurred from the conversion of Reef Ventures, L.P. income from gas sales to transportation fees. In the year ended December 31, 2005, Reef Ventures sold no natural gas ($0) compared to $1,323,459 of gas sales for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. However, Reef Ventures, L.P. increased transportation fees to $231,077 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 compared to transportation fees of $76,767 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004, an increase of $154,310. In addition, the mix of revenues earned by Sonterra Energy Corporation showed a significant change in terms of propane gas sales due to the reporting of a full year of operations in 2005 versus three months for the 2004 year. Propane sales for Sonterra Energy Corporation for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 were $1,494,679 compared to sales of $400,637 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004, an increase of $1,094,042. Construction service revenues for Sonterra Energy Corporation increased to $135,567 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 compared to $82,975 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004, an increase of $52,592.
 
TOTAL COSTS AND EXPENSES: Total costs and expenses from continuing operations decreased from $31,626,135 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 (as restated) to $15,171,916 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. The most significant decreases occurred in Beneficial Conversion Feature Interest, Sales, General and Administrative and Impairment Losses. Each of the decreases in these categories of expenses resulted primarily from results related to the matters discussed in Footnotes 1 and 2 of the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2005 and as described in the related sections below.
 
 
COST OF SALES: Total Cost of Sales decreased from $1,508,891 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 to $1,003,386 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Due to the conversion of Reef Ventures, L.P. to a transportation arrangement for its business versus the purchase and sale of natural gas, its cost of sales decreased from $1,299,518 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 to zero ($0) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. Cost of sales for Sonterra Energy Corporation rose from $209,373 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 to $1,003,386 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, an increase of $794,013. As stated in the Revenue discussion above, this increase was primarily the result of twelve months of operations reported in 2005 versus only three months of operations reported in 2004.
 
OPERATING EXPENSES: Operating expenses from continuing operations which are expenses related to the operation of Company assets in an active business segment increased from $99,665 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 to $202,766 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 which is a total increase of $103,101. This increase was primarily from the operating expenses incurred by Sonterra Energy Corporation. Depreciation expense increased from $244,889 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 to $485,481 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 due to a full year of depreciation being incurred in the 2005 year versus seven months of depreciation expense in 2004 on the natural gas pipeline owned by Reef Ventures, L.P. and the depreciable assets acquired by Sonterra Energy Corporation for the operation of the residential propane distribution systems in Austin, Texas.
 
INTEREST EXPENSE: Interest expense increased from $300,566 during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 to $611,363 primarily due to twelve months of carrying cost in 2005 for the debt incurred to acquire the natural gas pipeline owned by Reef Ventures, L.P. versus seven months of interest cost reported in the 2004 acquisition year for these assets. As described in Footnote 2, the Company has restated its December 31, 2004 financial statements and all subsequent quarterly financial statements to account for the cost of the embedded beneficial conversion feature inherent in the convertible notes issued to the MAG Capital, LLC investors on November 18, 2004. This beneficial conversion feature represents the difference between the conversion price for the debentures and the fair market value of the common stock at the commitment date and subsequent quarterly measurement dates. This discount was charged to interest expense because the conversion feature is at the option of the holder and can be exercised at any time. The Company has accordingly recognized interest expense in its restated December 31, 2004 financial statements in the amount of $3,092,105 and ($756,329) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005. The negative figure for 2005 interest expense recognizes the fluctuation in the market price of the common stock into which the notes are converted at the quarterly measurement dates. The interest cost associated with the issuance and conversion of these debentures due to this beneficial conversion feature is limited to the relevant 2004 and 2005 years due to the completed conversion of all the debentures into common stock in the fourth quarter of 2005.
 
SALES, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE: Sales, General and Administrative expense for the restated twelve months ended December 31, 2004 was $11,022,019. This amount includes restated amounts for stock issued for services and finance costs associated with the valuation of stock issued as part of the Impact International LLC acquisition in 2004. Sales, General & Administrative expenses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 was $8,033,249 which is a decrease of $2,988,770 as compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. During 2005, the Company recognized significant decreases in consulting fees and finance costs which were offset by increased employee expenses, board of director compensation, and overhead from full year operations of Sonterra Energy Corporation in 2005.
 
IMPAIRMENT LOSSES: As described in Footnote 1, the Company has recognized impairment of goodwill recorded in connection with the Impact International LLC acquisition in the amount of $5,200,000 and the impairment of the carrying value of the Chittim gas plant owned by Rio Bravo Energy LLC and the gas pipeline system connecting to the Chittim gas plant owned by Sonora Pipeline LLC in the amount of $392,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005.
 
GAIN ON REDUCTION OF WARRANT LIABILITY: As part of the Impact International LLC acquisition in the year ended December 31, 2004, the Company issued warrants at a conversion price less than the fair market value of the common stock issueable upon the exercise of those warrants. Accordingly, the Company has restated its December 31, 2004 financial statements to recognize both the additional goodwill and the related warrant liability associated with that acquisition. An evaluation of the difference between the price of the common stock and the warrant exercise price on a quarterly basis was performed resulting in the Gain on Reduction of Warrant Liability amounts shown in the restated December 31, 2004 financial statements ($15,390,000) and the amount shown in the December 31, 2005 financial statements ($5,168,000). The warrants originally issued in connection with this acquisition have been exercised and all common stock related to their exercise has been issued as of the end of the year December 31, 2005.
 
NET LOSS FROM OPERATIONS: Net loss of ($14,302,037) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 decreased to ($7,662,904) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, a decrease in the amount of loss of $6,639,133. Included in the net loss from operations is $4,022,525 of expenses for financing costs, investor relations fees, legal fees, director fees and employee compensation paid by issuance of common stock.
 
YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2004 COMPARED WITH YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2003
 
REVENUES: The Company reported revenues of $1,883,838 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 as compared with revenues from continuing operations of $178,856 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003. The revenue increase resulted primarily from the acquisition of a 98% interest in Reef Ventures, L.P. which owns and operates a natural gas pipeline serving the Piedras Negras, Coahuila market. Natural gas sold ($1,323,459) and transportation fees ($76,767) charged from these operations totaled $1,400,227 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Sales of propane by Sonterra Energy Corporation to its residential customer base ($363,413), service call income for its customers ($34,373), and installation income for new yard lines and meter sets ($2,850) totaled to $400,636 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. A new revenue source from Sonterra Energy Corporation was construction services related to propane main lines and tank sites for subdivisions under development, which resulted in $82,975 of revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Other Revenues decreased by $178,856 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 as compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2003.
 
 
TOTAL COSTS AND EXPENSES: Total costs and expenses from continuing operations increased from $3,061,068 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $31,626,135 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Each category of cost and expense increased significantly due to the rapid growth in assets and operation expenses experienced by the Company during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Cost of Sales increased from $0 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $1,508,891 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Operating Expenses increased from $27,767 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $99,665 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Depreciation Expense increased from $43,006 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $244,889 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Interest Expense increased from $53,163 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $3,392,671 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Each of these increases resulted primarily from growth related to the acquisition of 98% of the partnership interest in the Reef Ventures, L.P. international pipeline operations and the acquisition of the residential propane sales business near Austin, Texas by Sonterra Energy Corporation. However, $3,092,105 of the increase in Interest Expense for the year ended December 31, 2004 was from the recognition of Beneficial Conversion Feature interest expense associated with the November 18, 2004 financing transaction in which convertible notes were issued to affiliates of MAG Capital, LLC. General and Administrative Expenses increased from $2,937,132 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $11,022,019 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 due to the startup and initial operation of the additional business units mentioned above, the addition of additional directors and officers combined with the increased use of stock based compensation in the employment agreements of officers, and the expenses for expanded Company operations associated with the development of new midstream energy projects in the U.S. and Mexico during that period.
 
COST OF SALES: Total Cost of Sales increased from $0 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $1,508,891 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004. Cost of sales increased by $1,299,518 for the purchase cost of natural gas resold thru our international pipeline operated by Reef Ventures, L.P. and by $209,373 for the purchase cost of propane, meter sets and yard lines sold to residential customers by Sonterra Energy Corporation.
 
OPERATING EXPENSES: Operating expenses from continuing operations increased from $27,767 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 to $99,665 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 which is a total increase of $71,898. This increase was due to the operating expenses incurred for the international pipeline crossing operated by Reef Ventures, L.P. and the operating expenses incurred by Sonterra Energy Corporation. Depreciation expense increased by $201,883 during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 due to the acquisition of the natural gas pipeline owned by Reef Ventures, L.P. and the depreciable assets acquired by Sonterra Energy Corporation for the operation of the residential propane distribution systems in Austin, Texas. Interest expense increased by $3,339,508 during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 due to the debt incurred to acquire the natural gas pipeline owned by Reef Ventures, L.P. and the issuance of convertible debt to entities associated with the MAG Capital LLC.
 
SALES, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE: Sales, General & Administrative Expenses increased by $8,084,887 during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 as compared with Sales, General and Administrative expenses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003. Officers & Directors Salaries & Fees increased by $1,605,973 during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 as compared to the twelve months ended December 31. 2003 as a result of the addition of one director and two officers to the Company combined with the increased use of stock based compensation in the employment agreements of officers and directors. Consulting fees, legal fees, and financing fees increased by $5,960,039 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 as compared with the twelve months ended December 31, 2003. This increase resulted primarily from the use of stock based compensation for these services during a period of higher common stock prices. The remaining increase in G & A costs of $518,875 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004 was from increases in travel costs, office rent, insurance premiums, entertainment, and payroll plus other expenses associated with additional employees. The significant expansion of scope in the business plan for the Company and the need to conserve cash working capital for certain project predevelopment costs required the use of significant issuances of stock for general and administrative expenses during the twelve months ended December 31, 2004.
 
GOODWILL IMPAIRMENT LOSS: In connection with the acquisition of the Impact International LLC partnership interests in May 2004, the Company issued warrants to the sellers of the partnership interests at a conversion price that required the establishment of an asset and offsetting liability account to account for the difference in the strike price of the warrants versus the price of the common stock issuable as of the date of issue on May 24, 2004. The original amount of $20,558,000 was determined under the procedures of EITF 00-19 (utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing method) and was recorded as Goodwill in connection with the acquisition on the Company's books for the period ended June 30, 2004. At December 31, 2004, the Company reviewed the value of the Goodwill from the Impact acquisition and after applying the recognition and measurement guidelines stated in SFAS 142 "Goodwill and Other Intangibles" determined that an impairment charge to Goodwill of $15,358,000 was necessary.
 
GAIN ON REDUCTION OF WARRANTS LIABILITY: As described in the preceding section, a liability for the warrants issued and outstanding at May 24, 2004 was recorded in accordance with EITF 00-19, "Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled In, A Company's Own Stock". As a result of the mark to market process called for in that guidance, the Company determined that a reduction in warrants liability and corresponding gain in the amount of $15,390,000 should be recorded at December 31, 2004.
 
NET LOSS: Net loss of ($1,348,481) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2003 increased to ($14,302,037) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2004, an increase in the amount of loss of $12,953,556. Included in the net loss from operations is $9,327,818 of expenses for financing costs, consulting fees, legal fees, and employee compensation paid by issuance of common stock.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS:
 
We have included forward-looking statements in this report. For this purpose, any statements contained in this report that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Without limiting the foregoing, words such as "may", "will", "expect", "believe", "anticipate", "estimate", "plan" or "continue" or the negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements by their nature involve substantial risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially depending on a variety of factors. Factors that might cause forward-looking statements to differ materially from actual results include, among other things, overall economic and business conditions, demand for the Company's products, competitive factors in the industries in which we compete or intend to compete, natural gas availability and cost and timing, impact and other uncertainties of our future acquisition plans.
 
ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
We have historically invested our cash and cash equivalents in short-term, fixed rate, highly rated and highly liquid instruments which are reinvested when they mature throughout the year. Although our existing investments are not considered at risk with respect to changes in interest rates or markets for these instruments, our rate of return on short-term investments could be affected at the time of reinvestment as a result of intervening events. As of December 31, 2006, we had cash and cash equivalents aggregated $367,437.
 
We do not issue or invest in financial instruments or their derivatives for trading or speculative purposes. Our operations are conducted primarily in the United States, and, are not subject to material foreign currency exchange risk. Although we have outstanding debt and related interest expense, market risk of interest rate exposure in the United States is currently not material.
 
Debt
 
The interest rate on our Impact International debt obligation is generally determined based on the prime interest rate plus two percent and may be subject to market fluctuation as the prime rate changes.
 
ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA
 
Our Financial Statements, the accompanying Notes to the Financial Statements and the Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm are filed as part of this report beginning on the pages immediately following the signature pages of this Report.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation Of Disclosure Controls And Procedures.
 
James B. Smith, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer) performed an evaluation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures, as that term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of December 31, 2006 and has concluded that such disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our periodic reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms.
 
Changes In Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.
 
During the quarter ended December 31, 2006, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
 
Limitations.
 
Our management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls or internal controls over financial reporting will prevent all errors or all instances of fraud. However, we believe that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving this objective. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system's objectives will be met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and any design may not succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures. Because of the inherent limitation of a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Audit Committee and Financial Expert
 
The Company has no audit committee financial expert, as defined under Section 228.401, serving on its audit committee because it has no audit committee and is not required to have an audit committee because its common stock is not a listed security as defined in Section 240.10A-3. Accordingly, all material decisions affecting the Company's audited financial statements, periodic disclosure with the SEC and its relationship with its auditors are addressed by the entire Board of Directors.
 
Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934
 
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the Company's directors and executive officers, and persons who own more than 10% of the Company's Common Stock, to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial reports of beneficial ownership and reports of changes in beneficial ownership of Common Stock of the Company. Officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission to furnish the Company with copies of all section 16(a) reports they file. Based solely on copies of such forms furnished as provided above, or written representations that no Forms 5 were required, the Company believes that during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, the Company’s officers, directors and greater than ten percent owners timely filed all reports they were required to file under Section 16(a), except as follows:  a Form 4 relating to four transactions was filed late by Mr. Smith on February 14, 2006; a Form 4 relating to five transactions was filed late by Mr. Smith on March 27, 2006; a Form 4 relating to two transactions was filed late by Mr. Smith on October 12, 2006; Mr. Smith failed to file one report relating to four transactions, but did report the transactions in his year-end report on Form 5, which was timely filed; a Form 4 relating to one transaction was filed late by Mr. Dowies on June 8, 2006 (as amended on June 9, 2006); and Mr. Karim failed to file one report relating to one transaction, but did report the transaction in his year-end report on Form 5, which was timely filed.
 
ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
Compensation Discussion and Analysis

Compensation Philosophy and Objectives.  Our Board of Directors has the responsibility for establishing and reviewing the Company’s compensation philosophy and objectives.  The overall objectives of our compensation program for our executive officers are to attract and retain highly qualified executives committed to our success and our mission, to motivate our executives to build and grow our business, to reward loyalty and to incentivize our officers during both periods of growth, as well as uncertainty, and to align the interests of our executives with the interests of our stockholders. Ultimately, the goal of the compensation committee is to provide our executive officers with appropriate annual and longer-term compensation, both equity and non-equity based, to incentivize these officers and align their interests with those of our shareholders.  The Board of Directors has not established a formula for allocating between cash and non-cash compensation.  We refer to our President and Chief Executive Officer, our Chief Financial Officer and our other officers in the Executive Compensation Table as our named executive officers.

Role of Executive Officers and Management.  The President and Chief Executive Officer provide recommendations to the Board of Directors on matters of compensation philosophy, plan design and the general guidelines for executive officer compensation.  These recommendations are then considered by the Board of Directors.  The President and Chief Executive Officer is also a member of the Board of Directors and therefore generally attends meetings related to compensation but abstains from voting with respect his own compensation. In addition, the other members of the Board of Directors may discuss compensation of the President and Chief Executive Officer in sessions where he is not present.
 
Elements of Executive Compensation.  The compensation we provide to our executive officers primarily consists of the following:
 
·                                          annual base salary,
 
·                                          annual cash bonuses which are discretionary and/or based on the achievement of annual performance objectives,
 
·                                          stock awards,
 
·                                          stock options,
 
·                                          perquisites and other personal benefits, and
 
 ·       401K with certain matching contributions by the Company.
 
We do not offer pension or any other retirement plans for executives. We do not currently provide any deferred compensation plan for executives.
 
The Board of Directors has not hired any compensation consultants to assess the current salary levels or other compensation elements for our executive officers. In the future, we anticipate that the Board of Directors may review and consider summaries of competitive salary levels prepared by management based on various survey data.
 
 
Base Salary.  The Company provides named executive officers and other employees with base salary to compensate them for services rendered during the fiscal year.  Base salary ranges for named executive officers are determined for each executive based on his or her position, leadership, years of experience and level of responsibility. Merit increases normally take effect in January of each year.
 
During its review of base salaries for executives, the Board of Directors primarily considers:
 
·             internal review of the executive’s compensation, both individually and relative to other officers;
 
·             individual performance of the executive;
 
·             qualifications and experience of the officer; if
 
·             the complexity of our operations;
 
·             our ability to compete with other companies, including larger, more established and better capitalized companies, for the recruitment and retention of skilled management; and
 
·             the financial condition and results of operations of the Company.
 
Salary levels are typically considered annually as part of the Company’s performance review process as well as upon a promotion or other change in job responsibility. 
 
 
Incentive Cash Bonuses.  In addition to base salary, the Company has maintained a practice of paying incentive cash bonuses tied to an executive's performance.  These bonuses are discretionary and based upon individual performance as well as Company performance.  In 2006, incentive cash bonuses were awarded to the named executive officers generally based upon the named executive officer’s base salary, with most of the named executive officers receiving the same percentage of respect base salaries.
 
Equity Awards.  The Company believes that equity awards are an important component of executive compensation and serve to better align the interests of executives with those of our stockholders, eliciting maximum effort and dedication from our executive officers. The medium and long-term incentive compensation portion of the Company’s compensation program consists primarily of grants of stock awards, as well as grants of stock options under the Company’s stock grant and option plans. These grants and awards are designed to provide incentives for longer-term positive performance by the executive and other senior officers and to align their financial interests with those of the Company’s stockholders by providing the opportunity to participate in any appreciation in the stock price of the Company’s common stock that may occur after the date of grant of stock or options. In addition, the Company believes that such equity compensation enhances our ability to attract and retain highly qualified executives and other persons and to motivate them to improve our business results and earnings by providing them equity holdings in the Company.
 
Generally all of the stock awards that we are granted to our executive officers have been fully vested at the time of grant. Stock option grants may be fully vested or subject to vesting over time and/or other conditions. Generally, stock options are granted with an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant; however, under our stock greens and option plans, the Board of Directors retains discretion to grant options with exercise prices either above or below the then-current fair market value. 
 
In the past, our equity incentive compensation has primarily consisted of stock awards, with stock options being granted at a lesser rate.  We emphasized stock awards primarily as a mechanism to conserve cash, while providing recipients with both short-term liquidity, as well as long-term incentives to maximize shareholder value and the market value of our common stock. Our Board of Directors does not have any preset times during which it issues equity compensation, but instead considers recommendations made by senior management from time to time throughout the year, as well as performing annual reviews with respect to compensation and equity compensation.
 
Profit and Revenue Sharing. As described further under “Employment Agreements”, in 2006 Mr. Ward and Mr. Smith were entitled to compensation based on a percentage of our profits and increases in sales. Mr. Ward was entitled to two percent of the net profits of the Company, after deduction for all taxes and was also entitled to a distribution equal to one percent of the increase in sales over the previous year. Mr. Smith was entitled to one percent of the net profits of the Company, after deduction for all taxes and was also entitled to a distribution equal to one percent of the increase in sales over the previous year. Neither executive received any compensation pursuant to the use profit and revenue sharing provisions of their employment agreements, since the Company did not achieve profitability or increase its sales in 2006.
 
As discussed below under “Employment and Severance Agreements”, the Company eliminated this profit-and revenue sharing compensation as part of Mr. Smith’s new employment agreement in 2007, and increased the number of shares of stock to be issued to Mr. Smith in 2007. The Company made this shift in compensation because the Company believes that incentivizing a short-term focus on increasing sales may not be in the best interests of the Company in achieving longer-term goals that will maximize shareholder value. The Company believes that the long-term viability and success of the Company and maximum shareholder value are dependent upon the financing and development of various energy infrastructure projects. These projects may require a longer-term focus and may not result in increased sales or revenue in the short term. Therefore, the Company believes that our executive officers will have their interests more closely aligned with that of our shareholders, if a larger portion of their compensation is equity-based rather than revenue sharing based.
 
Retirement and Other Benefits.  
 
The Company offers a 401K plan with certain matching contributions by the Company to all of our employees including the named executive officers.
 
We also offer various fringe benefits to all of our employees, including our named executive officers, on a non-discriminatory basis, including group policies for medical insurance.  Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer received an automobile allowance of $12,000 per year.  The compensation committee believes such benefits are appropriate and assist such officers in fulfilling their employment obligations.
 
Stock Ownership Guidelines.  The Company has not established any formal policies or guidelines addressing expected levels of stock ownership by the named executive officers or for other executive officers.  However, due to purchases, the exercise of options, the vesting of restricted stock awards and the allocation of shares under the Company’s ESOP, our named executive officers, as well as our directors and other employees, have a substantial equity interest in the Company.
 
 
Tax Deductibility of Pay.  Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), places a limit of $1.0 million on the amount of compensation that the Company may deduct in any one year with respect to each of its five most highly paid executive officers. There is an exception to the $1.0 million limitation for performance-based compensation meeting certain requirements. Stock options are performance-based compensation meeting those requirements and, as such, are fully deductible. Service-based only stock awards are not considered performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code.
 
In the past, Section 162(m) has prevented the Company from fully deducting the expense of the executive compensation paid. To maintain flexibility in compensating executive officers in a manner designed to promote varying corporate goals, the Company has not adopted a policy requiring all compensation to be deductible.
 
Other Components of Compensation. As described below under “Employment and Severance Agreements with Management” that Company’s employment agreements with certain executive officers provide for severance benefits and change control benefits. The severance payments of the agreements are intended to align the executive officers’ and the stockholders’ interests by enabling executive officers to consider corporate transactions that are in the best interests of the stockholders and other constituents of the Company without undue concern over whether the transactions may jeopardize the executive officers’ own employment or impose financial hardship on him or her. The grounds under which severance payments are triggered in the employment and change in control agreements are similar to or the same as those included in many employment agreements for senior executive officers of comparable companies.
 
Employment and Severance Agreements with Management
 
James B. Smith. Mr. Smith was appointed Chief Executive Officer and President in December 2006. In March 15, 2007, we entered into a new employment agreement with Mr. Smith in his capacities as Chief Executive Officer and President. Mr. Smith’s employment agreement has a term of five (5) years, with an annual cash salary of $300,000. In addition, Mr. Smith is entitled to an annual stock grant with a fair market value of $1 million. Therefore, the number of shares granted to Mr. Smith each year will vary based on our stock price. Mr. Smith is entitled to all employee benefits generally provided by the Company to employees. He is also entitled to four weeks paid vacation, an annual automobile allowance of $12,000, supplemental disability insurance and a life insurance policy payable to his heirs in the amount of $2 million. Mr. Smith continues to serve as Chief Financial Officer, but does not receive any additional compensation specifically for such duties. If the Company terminates Mr. Smith’s employment without cause, as defined in the employment agreement, Mr. Smith is entitled to continue to receive payment of his cash and annual equity compensation for the remainder of the five year term. Mr. Smith joined our board of directors on June 27, 2005.
 
During all of 2006, and through March 15, 2007, Mr. Smith served under his prior employment agreement, which was entered into in October 2004 in his capacity of Chief Financial Officer. Under the terms of Mr. Smith's prior employment agreement, his base annual salary in 2006 was $168,000, and was subject to increases from year to year, as determined by our Board of Directors, by at least the Consumer Price Index. As additional compensation, Mr. Smith received his annual stock grant of 500,000 shares in accordance with the terms of the prior employment agreement. As incentive compensation, Mr. Smith was entitled to additional compensation equal to one percent of our net profits and one percent of the increase in sales over a previous year's sales, effective October 1, 2004. As with his new employment agreement, Mr. Smith was entitled to four weeks paid vacation and an annual automobile allowance of $12,000.
 
 
Robert W. Dowies. We employed Mr. Dowies on October 26, 2004 as our Vice President of Gas Markets and Supply. His employment agreement is for a term of three (3) years. His annual salary is $100,000. He is entitled to an annual stock grant of 100,000 common shares. The first 50,000 shares will vest and be payable April 18, 2005. Thereafter, stock grants will be payable every six months, October 18 and April 18 for the term of the employment agreement. Mr. Dowies is entitled to two (2) weeks paid vacation and all employee benefits as provided by the Company.
 
 
Michael Ward. Mr. Ward resigned from all positions with the Company in December 2006 and entered into an agreement regarding his separation from the Company, severance amounts and certain other matters. Pursuant to this agreement, Mr. Ward has agreed to repay the Company for certain amounts owed under promissory notes. In addition, Mr. Ward agreed to bring current and assume all obligations of not Company under that certain SBC Center Terrace Suite License Agreement between TIDE and San Antonio Spurs, LLC. Under this agreement, the Company will pay Mr. Ward the total sum of $134,415.72 representing six (6) months salary, plus COBRA payments for the same period of time, commencing January 1, 2007 according to the Company's payroll schedule. If Mr. Ward had been unable to secure an assignment of the Skybox Agreement, the salary and COBRA payments could have been suspended by the Company until the contemplated assignment was completed. In addition, the Company agreed to issue Mr. Ward the 500,000 shares of common stock due under his employment agreement on December 31, 2006. Mr. Ward was successful in having the Skybox Agreement assigned in January 2007, and therefore, the 500,000 shares were released to him at that time. However, the Company has suspended making required payments under the separation and severance agreement until such time as the sale of the Tidelands Exploration & Production Corporation’s properties for original value has been completed.
 
Prior to his resignation, under the terms of Mr. Ward's employment agreement, commencing January 1, 2004, he was employed as the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer for a term of five (5) years. His base annual salary in 2006 is $252,000. As additional compensation, Mr. Ward was entitled to an annual stock grant of One Million (1,000,000) shares. Stock grant dates were June 30 and December 31 each year. As incentive compensation, Mr. Ward was entitled to additional compensation equal to two percent of our net profits and one percent of the increase in sales over a previous year's sales, effective with the fiscal year ending 2004. Mr. Ward was entitled to all employee benefits as provided by the Company. He was entitled to four weeks paid vacation and an annual automobile allowance of $12,000.

We do not have any agreements providing for compensation or benefits to our employees in the event of a change of control of the Company.

(1) On September 25, 2006, each director received a grant of 150,000 shares of our common stock, valued at $0.58 per share. These awards vested immediately upon grant. Accordingly, the grant date fair value of each of these awards, calculated in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123 Share Based Payment (FAS 123(R)), is the same as the amount of compensation expense we reflected in our financial statements with respect to each of these awards. The grant date fair value of each of these awards is estimated based on the fair market value of our common stock at the time of the grant.

Tidelands does not have a Compensation committee. The Board of Directors acts as the Compensation Committee. Tidelands has no compensation written policies outlining factors and criteria underlying awards or payments in relation to executive officers.
 
Code of Ethical Conduct

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE
 
On February 5, 2003, we granted Royis Ward common stock options to purchase 500,000 shares at $0.22 per share. The options were exercised on September 14, 2004 and payment was made by promissory note for $110,000 bearing interest at the annual rate of Five percent. Presently, Royis Ward, formerly an officer and director of the Company, and father of Michael Ward (our former CEO), is indebted to the Company as outlined above.
 
The Company executed an agreement in January 2004 with Royis Ward, formerly an officer and director of the Company and the father of Michael R. Ward, who was President and CEO at that time, to provide charter air transportation for its employees, customers and contractors to job sites and other business related destinations. A $300,000 5% interest bearing loan due in January 2007 was made by the Company regarding the transaction. The loan balance is credited by airtime charges at standard industry rates offset by interest charges computed on the average monthly balance. At December 31, 2006, the loan balance was $287,432, including accrued interest, and was paid in full on that date by Michael R. Ward, who had subsequently acquired the airplane from Royis Ward after the initial transaction.

 
Policies and Procedures for Related Party Transactions
 
The Company conducts an appropriate review of all related party transactions that are required to be disclosed pursuant to Regulation S-K, Item 404 for potential conflict of interest situations on an ongoing basis and all such transactions must be disclosed to and approved by the entire Board of Directors of the Company.

 
Director Independence
 
Our Board of Directors is currently composed of three directors, none of whom would qualify as an independent director based on the definition of independent director set forth in Rule 4200(a)(15) of the Nasdaq Marketplace rules. Because our common stock is traded on the NASD OTC Electronic Bulletin Board, which is not a securities exchange, we are not subject to corporate governance rules that require that a board of directors be composed of a majority of independent directors.
 
 
ITEM 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES
 
The Company paid or accrued the following fees in each of the prior two fiscal years to its principal accountant, Baum & Co., P.A. of Coral Springs, Florida.
 
 
 Year End 12-31-06
 
 Year End 12-31-05

(2) Audit-related Fees   53,625     -0-
(3) Tax Fees   -0-     -0-
(4) All other fees   -0-     -0-

The Company's principal accountant, Baum & Co., P.A. did not engage any other persons or firms other than the principal accountant's full-time, permanent employees.
 
AUDIT FEES. Audit fees consist of fees billed for professional services rendered for the audit of the Company's consolidated financial statements and review of the interim consolidated financial statements included in quarterly reports and services that are normally provided by the Company's principal accountants in connection with statutory and regulatory filings or engagements.
 
AUDIT-RELATED FEES. Audit related fees consist of fees billed for assurance and related services that are reasonably related to the performance of the audit or review of the Company's consolidated financial statements and are not reported under "Audit Fees."
 
TAX FEES. Tax fees are fees billed for professional services for tax compliance, tax advice and tax planning.
 
ALL OTHER FEES. All other fees include fees for products and services other than the services reported above. There were no management consulting services provided in fiscal 2006 or 2005.
 
Policy on Audit Committee Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-Audit Services of Independent Auditors
 
The Company currently does not have a designated Audit Committee. However, as defined in Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the entire Board of Directors is the Company's de facto audit committee.
 
Accordingly, the Company's Board of Directors' policy is to pre-approve all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by the independent auditors. These services may include audit services, audit-related services, tax services and other services. Pre-approval is generally provided for up to one year and any pre-approval is detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is generally subject to a specific budget. The independent auditors and management are required to periodically report to the Company's Board of Directors regarding the extent of services provided by the independent auditors in accordance with this pre-approval, and the fees for the services performed to date. The Board of Directors may also pre-approve particular services on a case-by-case basis.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT



Board of Directors
Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation
San Antonio, Texas

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation as of December 31, 2006 and 2005, and the related statements of consolidated stockholders’ equity, operations, and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004 (Restated). These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation as of December 31, 2006 and 2005, and the results of their consolidated operations and their consolidated cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004 (Restated) in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net working capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
