Unit 25, Suite 3200
801 Cherry Street
Fort Worth, TX 76102

Cano Petroleum, Inc. (Amex:CFW) is an oil and gas company that utilizes secondary waterflood and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods to produce more oil from mature U.S. fields. The company's focus on enhanced recovery of existing onshore domestic oil fields eliminates exploration risk as well as the political and logistical uncertainties inherent in international operations. Cano’s business model allows it to operate successfully in a niche where larger independent and major oil companies are not structured to compete and its focus on domestic EOR currently faces minimal competition.
