Evolution Petroleum Announces Results for the Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter Ended March 31, 2017 and Declares Quarterly Common Stock Dividend

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 8, 2017 / Evolution Petroleum (NYSE MKT: EPM) today reported financial and operating highlights for its fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2017, with comparisons to the fiscal second quarter ended December 31, 2016 (the "prior quarter") and the quarter ended March 31, 2016 (the "year-ago quarter").

Highlights for the Quarter:

  • Revenues for the fiscal third quarter of 2017 were $9.5 million, an increase of 87% over the third quarter of 2016.
  • Net income was $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2017, or $0.07 per diluted common share, versus a net loss of $298,000, or $0.01 per common diluted share, in the year ago quarter.
  • The Company paid its fourteenth consecutive quarterly cash dividend on common stock, in the amount of $0.07 per share, which reflected an 8% increase over the prior quarter.
  • Delhi natural gas liquid ("NGL") sales commenced in the current quarter. Gross NGL sales volumes averaged 830 barrels per day as volumes ramped up during the quarter. Our net NGL sales volumes were 218 barrels per day and the net realized NGL price was $23.71 per barrel.
  • Gross oil production in the Delhi field increased 2.7% over the prior quarter, increasing to 7,786 barrels of oil per day ("BOPD") from 7,580 BOPD, continuing a positive trend of optimizing production in the CO2 flood. Our net oil production increased to 2,042 BOPD from 1,987 BOPD in the prior quarter and the net realized oil price per barrel was $49.29 compared to $46.66 in the prior quarter, an increase of 6%.
  • Lifting costs at Delhi were $13.82 per barrel, which represents a 10.2% increase over the prior quarter and a 5.3% increase over the year-ago quarter. The increase in lifting costs is almost entirely attributable to incremental costs for the NGL plant, which commenced operations at the beginning of the quarter.
  • The Company ended the quarter with $21.5 million of working capital, substantially all of which was cash. With essentially all of our capital spending for the NGL plant completed in the prior quarter, our working capital increased by $2.9 million, despite paying $2.3 million in quarterly common stock dividends.
  • The Company remains debt free.

"Oil production in the Delhi field continues its positive trend, with gross production increasing by over 200 BOPD from the prior quarter," said Randy Keys, President and CEO. "We continue to see the benefits from diverse conformance workovers and performance enhancement projects designed to improve efficiency in use of the recycle CO2 stream. Further, these results have been achieved while reducing purchased CO2 volumes.

"Additionally, the Company began selling NGL's from the NGL recovery plant during the quarter. This plant is designed to enhance the efficiency of the CO2 flood by purifying the recycle CO2 stream, produce high-value natural gas liquids for sale and also produce methane and ethane for conversion to electricity in the field. The NGL plant is meeting all objectives, and we are working through technical adjustments to continue to improve the production rates and efficiency of the process. The NGL plant is a very important milestone in the development of the Delhi field and for Evolution Petroleum."

Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

In the current quarter, operating revenues were $9.5 million, based on an average realized oil price of $49.29 per barrel and an average NGL price of $23.71 per barrel, and generated $3.9 million in income from operations. In the year ago quarter, operating revenues were $5.1 million and we had a loss from operations of $0.7 million, based on an average oil price of $30.00 per barrel. Net oil production volumes were 2,042 BOPD, an increase of 11% from 1,834 BOPD in the year ago quarter. In addition, the Company added 218 barrels per day of higher-value natural gas liquids from start-up of the NGL plant, which were sold at a net realized price of $23.71 per barrel. Net income for the quarter was $2.4 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.

Production costs in the Delhi field were $2.8 million in the current quarter, up from $2.3 million in the prior quarter and $2.2 million in the year ago quarter. The current quarter includes approximately $0.5 million of incremental operating costs from the NGL plant, which accounts for almost all of the increase in costs from the prior quarter. These costs include some non-recurring expenses associated with start-up of the NGL plant and do not yet reflect any significant savings in power costs from the electric generation capacity of the plant. Purchased CO2 volumes were 66.3 million cubic feet (MMcf) per day, unchanged from the prior quarter, and our total CO2 costs were also flat at approximately $1.0 million in each of the past two quarters.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses were $1.3 million for the quarter, of which $0.3 million were noncash stock-based compensation expenses and approximately $1.0 million were cash costs. These amounts were up slightly from the prior quarter, but represent a 44% reduction from the year-ago quarter, which included significant litigation costs. The Company made significant reductions in G&A costs since the downturn began, but we have recently incurred a small amount of discretionary costs in connection with the evaluation of potential producing property acquisitions.

Delhi Operations and Capital Spending

Gross oil production at Delhi averaged 7,786 BOPD during the quarter, a 2.7% increase from the prior quarter and an increase of 12.5% from the year-ago quarter. There continues to be increased production from conformance projects and other production enhancement operations. Gross NGL sales for this initial quarter of production were 830 barrels per day. After an initial startup period in January 2017, the NGL plant averaged approximately 1,100 barrels per day on a gross basis during February and March 2017. During these two months, the plant operated at 20% to 30% below its full capacity. Based on results seen in this initial operating period, we believe the plant should be able to achieve more than 1,400 barrels per day at full capacity. Startup of new processing plants often involves a period of adjustments to reach equilibrium operations and we are working with the operator to resolve the issues which are currently limiting full production capacity for the plant.

The NGL plant includes an electric turbine to convert methane and part of the ethane removed by the plant to electricity. This electricity will provide power to the NGL plant and is expected to supply excess power to the CO2 recycle facility, which is expected to reduce part of existing power costs in the Delhi field. During the first quarter of production, with the NGL plant operating at less than full capacity and ramping up the flow rate during the quarter, the Company has yet to see measurable savings in power costs. The NGL plant is accomplishing its primary objective of removing the lighter hydrocarbons (i.e. methane and ethane), thereby increasing the purity of the CO2 recycle stream and improving the efficiency of the flood. Over time, this is expected to increase the recovery of crude oil in the field. The plant is also providing feedstock to power the electric turbine and producing significant quantities of higher value NGL's for sale.

Costs from inception of the NGL plant totaled $26.3 million, which is believed to represent substantially all the capital costs to be incurred. The final cost of the plant was within 8% of budget and differed primarily as a result of price increases on specialized components after the original estimate, and additional commissioning costs.

During the quarter, less than $0.2 million was spent on capital workover projects for conformance operations in the Delhi field. Current expectations for capital spending during the remainder of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 include a few additional conformance and workover operations totaling less than $1 million net to Evolution. These new projects result from the demonstrated benefits from previous conformance efforts and the significant returns that have been realized from relatively modest capital investments in the field. The Company has seen significant production increases from conformance projects over the past two years.

Based on recent meetings with the field operator, new opportunities have been identified to invest in the Delhi field during the second half of this calendar year, which is part of the fiscal 2018 plan. The majority of this capital is planned for an infill drilling program to enhance production in the current developed area of the flood. This program will consist of up to five new CO2 injection wells and seven new production wells and will target productive oil zones which are not being swept effectively by the current CO2 flood. This infill program is expected to both add production and increase ultimate recoveries above the current proved oil reserves. There are other capital projects proposed to add water injection infrastructure for the Phase Five expansion of the Delhi field so that it can be developed in a safe and responsible manner. The expansion is expected to occur during calendar 2018, subject to oil prices and other factors.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity improved by $2.9 million and the Company ended the quarter with $21.5 million in working capital and $10 million of undrawn liquidity under its reserve-based credit facility. Our low cost structure provides solid cash flow, even in periods of weaker oil prices, and it is expected that capital needs will be relatively modest now that the NGL plant is complete. The Company expects to continue to generate significant free cash flow in the current oil price environment.

Cash Dividend on Common Stock

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.07 per share of common stock, which will be paid on June 30, 2017 to common stockholders of record on June 15, 2017. This is the fifteenth consecutive quarterly cash dividend on the common stock, which has been paid since the end of calendar year 2013.
