Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Operating and Financial Results, 2018 Year End Proved Reserves and 2019 Guidance

67 Days ago

TULSA, March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (NASDAQ: MCEP) (“Mid-Con Energy” or the “Partnership”) announces operating and financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

“2018 was a transformative year for the Partnership,” commented our President and CEO, Jeff Olmstead. “We significantly improved our financial position by extending the maturity of our Revolving Credit Facility, increasing the borrowing base amount, reducing total outstanding debt, and reducing our total leverage as calculated by our banks. We closed approximately $23 million in acquisitions, including several properties in our new core area of Wyoming, and expanded our footprint in Oklahoma. This all resulted in production increasing approximately 30% from the first quarter of 2018 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

In February 2019, we announced the execution of two agreements to sell substantially all of our Texas assets and to acquire assets in Oklahoma. The net effect of this transaction will be to significantly reduce outstanding debt and to add long-lived, low-decline assets with potential for margin enhancements through operational efficiency to our portfolio. This continues our track record from 2018 of entering into transactions that help strengthen our financial position and lower our base PDP decline rate. The lower PDP decline rate provides us a more stable reserve base, which allows for more operational and financial control, to grow from. Lower decline properties require less capital investment to maintain production and reserves, and provide the flexibility to invest additional free cash flow into development of new reserves and/or into new acquisitions.

Our 2019 capital budget will be focused on evaluating our development opportunities in many of these new assets, while also continuing to develop our existing waterfloods.  We will also be focused on operational enhancements on many of the newly acquired fields. If we are successful at decreasing operating costs, and/or increasing production at these new mature fields, the increased margins on these assets will significantly increase the value of their reserves.

We expect to continue this path of acquiring properties with significant waterflood development opportunities, as well as properties with existing low margins where the opportunity exists to enhance these margins through our competitive strengths.”

RECENT EVENTS AND FULL YEAR 2018 SUMMARY

  • Completed $15.0 million private offering (the “Offering”) of Class B Convertible Preferred Units (“Class B Preferred Units”) on January 31, 2018, to investors led by John Goff. The Partnership used a portion of net proceeds from this Offering to acquire assets in the Powder River Basin (“PRB Acquisitions”) and the remaining approximately $7.2 million to pay down debt.
  • Closed approximately $23 million, after post-close adjustments, in acquisitions during 2018. The acquisitions included entering into a new core area consisting of two basins, the Powder River Basin and the Big Horn Basin, as well as increasing our footprint in Oklahoma. These properties consist of approximately 9,271 MBoe of net total proved reserves as of December 31, 2018 at the standardized measure for pricing approved by the SEC (“SEC pricing”).
  • In February 2019, we executed definitive agreements to sell substantially all of our Eastern Shelf assets in Texas for $60.0 million, and to acquire Oklahoma properties in Osage, Caddo, and Grady counties for $27.5 million, both subject to customary purchase price adjustments. The properties include 10 mature waterflood units and consist of low decline (average PDP decline of less than 5%), long-lived assets with opportunities to both grow production and decrease current operating expenses through operational efficiencies. Net proved developed producing reserves of these Oklahoma properties as of January 1, 2019 were 6.2 MMBoe (96% oil) based on SEC pricing as of January 1, 2019.
  • On December 19, 2018, the Partnership’s borrowing base was increased to $135.0 million as part of the regularly scheduled semi-annual redetermination.
  • We reduced total debt outstanding at December 31, 2018 by $6.0 million, or 6.1%, from December 31, 2017 and in January 2018 the revolving credit facility maturity was extended by two years to November 2020. Compliance Total Leverage, as calculated per our credit agreement, was approximately 3.17x as of December 31, 2018 compared to 3.54x as of December 31, 2017.
  • Fourth quarter 2018 average daily production of 3,663 Boe/d, an increase of 30.8% from first quarter 2018.
  • Lease operating expenses (“LOE”) of approximately $22.5 million, an increase of 8.3% year-over-year.
  • Realized revenues, inclusive of cash settlements from matured derivatives and net premiums, were $59.0 million, an increase of 8.2% year-over-year.
  • Full year net loss of $18.3 million in 2018 compared to a net loss of $27.3 million in 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $25.2 million at December 31, 2018, an increase of 5.7% year-over-year, primarily due to higher oil and gas revenue from an increase in commodity prices.

The following table reflects selected unaudited operating and financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2018, compared to the fourth quarter and full year of 2017. Mid-Con Energy’s unaudited consolidated financial statements are included at the end of this press release.

FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2018 RESULTS
Production - Production for the fourth quarter of 2018 was 337 MBoe, or 3,663 Boe/d. On a daily basis, this represented a 1.5% increase sequentially and a 9.1% increase year-over-year. Year-over-year production increase was primarily due to the acquisition of the Wyoming and Oklahoma properties, partially offset by the sale of the Southern Oklahoma properties in December 2017 and natural declines in the Texas properties in 2018. The Partnership also returned 88 wells to production in Oklahoma and Wyoming, and drilled 9 new producing wells in Oklahoma and Texas during 2018.

Price Realizations - Oil and natural gas sales were $16.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, or $48.32/Boe. On a per Boe basis, this represented a 16.2% decrease sequentially and a 4.7% decrease year-over-year. The sequential decrease was primarily due to wider differentials in our Wyoming properties. On a year-over-year basis, the differentials in Texas also negatively affected our realized prices for 2018. Cash settlements paid for matured derivatives, inclusive of net premiums, were $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, or $3.39/Boe. Cash settlements paid for matured derivatives, inclusive of net premiums, were $8.08/Boe in the third quarter of 2018. Cash settlements received from matured derivatives, inclusive of net premiums were $3.15/Boe in the fourth quarter of 2017. The resulting realized prices, after incorporating cash settlements from matured derivatives, inclusive of net premiums, were $44.93/Boe in the fourth quarter of 2018, $49.59/Boe in the third quarter of 2018, and $47.56/Boe in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Lease Operating Expenses - LOE was $6.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, representing a 6.3% increase from the third quarter of 2018 and an increase of 33.5% from the fourth quarter of 2017.  On a per Boe basis, LOE in the fourth quarter of 2018 of $19.71/Boe increased 4.8% sequentially and increased 22.4% year-over-year.  The sequential increase in aggregate LOE, and on a per BOE basis, is primarily due to weather related operational expenses and increased well work in Wyoming, and the first full quarter effect of the Worland assets.  The year-over-year variance on aggregate LOE, and on a per Boe basis, was primarily due to the addition of higher lifting cost properties in Wyoming in 2018 and the divestiture of lower cost properties in Southern Oklahoma in December 2017.

Production and Ad Valorem Taxes - Production and ad valorem taxes in the fourth quarter of 2018 were $1.7 million, or $4.99/Boe, reflecting an effective tax rate of 10.3%. Production and ad valorem taxes in the third quarter of 2018 were $1.6 million, or $4.71/Boe, for an effective tax rate of 8.2%. Production and ad valorem taxes in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $0.9 million, or $2.91/Boe, reflecting an effective tax rate of 5.7%.  The sequential and year-over-year increase in effective tax rate was primarily due to accounting adjustments related to acquired properties in Wyoming with higher ad valorem taxes.

General and Administrative Expenses (“G&A”) - G&A in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $1.6 million, or $4.64/Boe. G&A in the third quarter 2018 was $1.5 million, or $4.50/Boe. G&A for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $1.2 million, or $3.99/Boe. The increase both sequentially and year-over-year was primarily due to higher cash and equity based compensation expense.

Net Income (Loss) - For the fourth quarter of 2018, Mid-Con Energy reported net income of $2.4 million. Net income per limited partner unit was $0.04 (basic) and $0.02 (diluted) based on the weighted average limited partner units outstanding during the period of 30.4 million (basic) and 52.6 (diluted). Net loss for the third quarter of 2018 was $3.3 million, or $0.14 (basic and diluted) per limited partner unit, based on a weighted average of 30.4 million (basic and diluted) limited partner units outstanding during the period. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $8.7 million, or $0.30 per limited partner unit (basic and diluted), based on a weighted average of 30.1 million limited partner units outstanding during the period. The positive sequential and year-over-year variance was primarily attributable to lower commodity prices in the fourth quarter 2018 resulting in a gain on derivatives, inclusive of net premiums.

Adjusted EBITDA - Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $5.1 million, or $15.12/Boe. Adjusted EBITDA was $22.52/Boe in the third quarter of 2018 and $26.07/Boe in the fourth quarter of 2017. The sequential and year-over-year decrease in Adjusted EBITDA, in aggregate and per Boe, was primarily due to lower realized pricing related to wider differentials.

YEAR END 2018 ESTIMATED NET PROVED RESERVES
Mid-Con Energy’s year end 2018 estimated net proved reserves were 24.8 MMBoe, representing a 27.0% increase compared to year end 2017 estimated net proved reserves of 19.6 MMBoe. Reserves at year end 2018 were categorized as approximately 96% oil and approximately 75% proved developed, both on a per Boe basis.

At December 31, 2018, the standardized measure of the Partnership’s estimated net proved reserves was $348.3 million. The standardized measure represents the present value of estimated future net revenue to be generated from the production of proved reserves, determined in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC, without giving effect to non-property related expenses, such as general and administrative expenses, debt service and future federal income tax expense, or to depreciation, depletion and amortization, and then discounted using an annual rate of 10 percent. Given Mid-Con Energy’s status as a limited partnership, the calculation of standardized measure does not include any provision for federal income tax expense.

The following table shows estimated proved reserves as of December 31, 2018, as prepared by the Partnership’s internal reserve engineers and audited by Cawley, Gillespie & Associates, Inc., independent petroleum engineers.

LIQUIDITY AND BORROWING BASE SUMMARY
On December 19, 2018, the Partnership’s borrowing base was increased to $135.0 million. The next borrowing base redetermination will be before or during the second quarter 2019.  

At December 31, 2018, that Partnership’s total liquidity of $41.5 million, consisted of $0.5 million of cash and $41.0 million of available borrowings under its revolving credit facility, net of $1.0 million outstanding standby letter of credit. At March 12, 2019, the Partnership’s total liquidity of $35.0 million, consisted of $1.0 million of cash and $34.0 million of available borrowings under its revolving credit facility, net of $1.0 million outstanding standby letter of credit. This decrease was due to a deposit on the transactions announced in February 2019 and cash payments made to acquire additional interests in Wyoming.

HEDGING SUMMARY
Mid-Con Energy enters into various commodity derivative contracts intended to achieve more predictable cash flows by reducing the Partnership’s exposure to short-term fluctuations in oil prices. We believe this risk management strategy will serve to secure a portion of our revenues and, by retaining some opportunity to participate in upward price movements, may also enable us to realize higher revenues during periods when prices rise.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release, the financial tables and other supplemental information include “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-generally accepted accounting principles (“Non-GAAP”) measure used by our management to describe financial performance with external users of our financial statements.

The Partnership believes the Non-GAAP financial measure described above is useful to investors because these measurements are used by many companies in its industry as a measurement of financial performance and are commonly employed by financial analysts and others to evaluate the financial performance of the Partnership and to compare the financial performance of the Partnership with the performance of other publicly traded partnerships within its industry.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus (minus):

  • Interest expense, net;
  • Depreciation, depletion and amortization;
  • Accretion of discount on asset retirement obligations;
  • (Gain) loss on derivatives, net;
  • Cash settlements received (paid) for matured derivatives;
  • Cash settlements received for early terminations of derivatives;
  • Cash premiums received (paid) for derivatives, net;
  • Impairment of proved oil and natural gas properties;
  • Impairment of proved oil and natural gas properties held for sale;
  • Non-cash equity-based compensation;
  • (Gain) loss on sales of oil and natural gas properties, net, and;
  • Dry holes and abandonments on unproved properties.
