       Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results
of Operations
       How We Plan and Evaluate Operations
       Operating Expenses, page 70

   1.                                                   Your response to prior
comment 1 states that the presentation of Operating Expenses was
                                                        intended to summarize
the key components of your oil and gas production operations
                                                        economics. Please
further explain how the components of Operating Expenses relate to
                                                        the production of oil
and gas. For example, tell us how revenue from the sale of excess
                                                        electricity from your
cogeneration operations to third parties relates to your production

                                                        In addition, we note
from your response that Operating Expenses is used to

         measure controllable net costs separate from your oil and gas revenues
that are solely
         market-based. Please clarify this statement as disclosure in your Form
10-K states that the
         electrical output of your cogeneration facilities that is not used in
your operations is sold
         to the California market based on market pricing.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures, page 91

2.       Your response to prior comment 8 states that the adjustment for the
discrete income tax
         item in the December 31, 2020 reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income
(Loss) relates to the
         valuation allowance recorded that year. Please explain why this
adjustment is appropriate
         as it appears to result in an individually tailored recognition
method. For additional
         guidance, see Question 100.04 of the Compliance and Disclosure
Interpretations on Non-
         GAAP Financial Measures.
3.       We note from your response to prior comment 9 that the reconciliation
you propose to
         provide will not separately quantify the differences between Basic and
Diluted EPS on
         Adjusted Net Income and Basic and Diluted GAAP Net Income (Loss) per
share. Please
         further revise your presentation as it does not appear that your
proposed revision
         complies with Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K.
      You may contact Jennifer O'Brien, Staff Accountant, at 202-551-3721 or
Horowitz, Accounting Branch Chief, at 202-551-3311 with any questions.
