Net cash provided by operating activities
The cash generated was - believe it or not - slightly larger than the revenue - and over 40 million higher than profits. Part of that was depletion (depreciation adds to cash flow). Most the rest was simply an increase in accounts payable of 22 million.
Here is the cash flow from investing for that three months:

Net cash used in investing activities
In those three months they invested $160 million but only had cash flows of $69 million and earnings of $26.7 million.
How did they finance this?
As noted the company had to finance $160 million of investing activities from only $26.7 million in operating earnings. This presents financing issues.
Firstly the company (as noted) ran up its accrued liabilities.
Then the company borrowed $10 million dollars.
But mostly the company ran down its cash holdings from $93 million to $13 million.
Where did those cash holdings come from?
The cash holdings did not represent past profits. What they were was proceeds from equity issuance. The company cash flow statement in 2011 shows $307 million in equity issuance - much of which has gone into investing in various quarters. The cash is now heavily depleted (note only $13 million is left).
If they intend on investing at these rates they will need to raise more capital.
What were the investments?
In the last quarter they invested $67 million in Grizzly Oil Sands. That is controlled by Wexford.
They also invested in Tatex, Muskie, Timberwolf and Windsor. All of these are Wexford entities.
Indeed they invested more than their entire revenue in Wexford Entities.
But they also added $85 million to oil and gas properties. A fair bit of that was with respect to the Permian Basin properties (they drilled wells and acquired acreage). Those assets are also being sold to a Wexford controlled entity. Other releases have envisaged a sale of that entity which will raise some cash allowing them to continue to invest.
I read many 10K and 10Q filings. Few are this fascinating.
