I'm pretty sure this Concorde America, Inc was CUPY or affiliated with CUPY in some way.
I also PM'd this article in your post to Drillbit (ihub member)last week. Drillbit is very knowledgeable about O&G companies...and he has very good sources for DD re claims etc...in addition to his own years of experience. He sold all of his wells a couple of years ago....however...he is still in contact with a lot of people in that sector and the mining sector. He's a very nice guy...straight shooter.
