TXCO Resources Inc., formerly The Exploration Company of Delaware, Inc., is engaged in the exploration, exploitation, development, production and acquisition of onshore domestic oil and gas reserves. The Company's oil and gas enterprise interests are located in the Maverick Basin in Southwest Texas, and the Marfa Basin of West Texas. The Company's principal products are crude oil and natural gas. Generally, the Company sells all of its oil and gas under short-term contracts that can be terminated with 30 days notice, or less.

As operator, the Company contracts service companies, such as drilling contractors, cementing contractors, for specific tasks. In some non-operated wells, the Company participates as an overriding royalty interest owner.
