Competition and Other External Factors

         The need for oil field services  fluctuates,  in part,  from the demand
for oil and natural gas. As demand for those commodities increases,  service and
maintenance  requirements  increase.  Yale E. Key competes  with other local oil
field  service  companies  as well as national  service  companies.  Yale E. Key
believes  it is the  largest oil well  service  company in West Texas  (based on
number of workover rigs and  employees).  Key believes that the reputation  that
Yale E. Key (including its  predecessors) has developed over its 48 years in oil
field service operations contributes greatly to its competitive position.

         Odessa   Exploration   acquires  various  oil  and  gas  properties  by
purchasing them from independent and major oil companies and competes with other
independent   and  integrated  oil  companies  for  the   acquisition  of  these

         Clint Hurt competes with other local oil and gas drilling  contractors,
as well as national  oil and gas  drilling  companies.  As with Yale E. Key, the
need for drilling oil and gas wells fluctuates, in part, from the demand for oil
and natural gas.


         Key leases  approximately 1,500 square feet for its principal executive
offices in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

         The  following  table sets forth  information  with  respect to Yale E.
Key's operating  facilities at December 31, 1995, all of which were used in the
