AE faced challenges in its crude oil marketing and transportation segments, which experienced declines in revenue. The decrease in revenue from the crude oil marketing segment can be attributed to lower revenues resulting from lower crude oil prices and volumes. The transportation segment also faced a decline in revenue due to lower services transferred over time.

This measure is unique to the company and is used to evaluate the profitability of its operations. Additionally, AE's Phoenix operations generated approximately $8.5 million in revenues during the quarter.
