Operations Update:

  • Average gross (100%) oil production of 11,700 bbl/d (working interest 7,600 bbl/d) for Q3 2019 versus 7,200 bbl/d (working interest 4,700 bbl/d) for Q3 2018
    • 62% increase in gross (100%) oil production in Q3 2019 versus Q3 2018; 4% increase in gross (100%) oil production in Q3 2019 versus Q2 2019
    • Average gross (100%) oil production of 11,600 bbl/d in October 2019 with production curtailed during the first four days of the month due to the scheduled maintenance of the KOEP
    • Higher production in Q3 2019 versus Q2 2019 a result of increased oil production from the Banan-6 well partially offset by expected decline of wells producing from the Zey Gawra Cretaceous reservoir, brief shut-ins of production of certain Banan wells in September due to other operations at the Banan field and the shutdown of the KOEP for scheduled maintenance during the last three days of September
  • The Banan-7 well targeting the Cretaceous reservoir was spudded in August 2019, was drilled to a measured depth of 1,468 metres and was completed and placed on production in late September
  • The Banan-5 well was spudded in September 2019. The well was designed to obtain information to enhance understanding of both the Banan Tertiary and Cretaceous reservoirs and was drilled to a measured depth of 1,669 metres. The well was completed in the Cretaceous reservoir and placed on production in October 2019
  • A pump was successfully installed in the Demir Dagh-8 well targeting the Cretaceous reservoir and the well was placed on production through the Demir Dagh production facility in late October 2019
  • Efforts to facilitate oil production from the horizontal sidetrack of the Demir Dagh-5 well targeting the Cretaceous reservoir, including acid stimulation operations, have not yet been successful. Further efforts to stimulate or recomplete this well may be planned after further assessment of the behaviour of the Demir Dagh Cretaceous reservoir
  • A horizontal sidetrack of the previously drilled Demir Dagh-3 well, targeting the Cretaceous reservoir, is currently being drilled
  • Initial planning and preparations for an exploration drilling campaign in the AGC Central license area are ongoing. An environmental and social impact assessment and a geohazard assessment are near completion. The Corporation has requested that the First Renewal Period of its Production Sharing Contract (due to end on October 1, 2020) be suspended until Senegal and Guinea Bissau have agreed on a long term extension or renewal of the AGC accord

Q4 2019 Forecasted and 2020 Budgeted Capital Expenditures:

  • Oryx Petroleum re-forecasted capital expenditures for Q4 2019 are $14 million and are primarily focused on the Hawler license area. Expenditures include those incurred relating to the recently completed Banan-7 and Banan-5 wells, the recently completed installation of artificial lift at the Demir Dagh-8 well, drilling of the Demir Dagh-3 horizontal sidetrack and a sidetrack of the Banan-1 well targeting the Cretaceous reservoir, and completion of infrastructure needed to facilitate increased production from the Banan field
  • Oryx Petroleum budgeted capital expenditures for 2020 are $106 million:
    • $63 million dedicated to the Hawler license area: 7 wells are planned including two horizontal wells targeting the Demir Dagh Cretaceous reservoir, one sidetrack of an existing well targeting the Zey Gawra Cretaceous reservoir, the completion of the previously suspended Ain Al Safra-2 well targeting the Triassic reservoir, two wells targeting the Banan Cretaceous reservoir, one well targeting the Banan Tertiary reservoir and one sidetrack of an existing well targeting the Zey Gawra Tertiary reservoir; processing facilities and a pipeline connecting the Banan field to the Hawler production facilities at the Demir Dagh field; storage tanks at the Hawler production facilities and pads, flowlines and infrastructure modifications needed to accommodate incremental drilling and production and to reduce operating costs
    • $43 million dedicated to the AGC Central license area including studies, preparations for exploration drilling and the drilling of one exploration well

Liquidity Outlook:


  • The Corporation expects cash on hand as of September 30, 2019 and cash receipts from net revenues and export sales will allow it to fund its forecasted operating and administrative costs and Hawler license area capital expenditures through the end of 2020. Additional capital is expected to be required to be able to both meet any contingent consideration obligations that become payable and to fund drilling in the AGC Central license area planned in 2020. Oryx Petroleum expects that the repayment of the principal amount due to AOG in July 2020, under the AOG Loan, will be restructured. The Corporation had $20.4 million of cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2019

CEO's Comment

Commenting today, Oryx Petroleum's Chief Executive Officer, Vance Querio, stated:

"In recent months we continued to increase production in the Hawler license area and in the third quarter we achieved record average daily production.

In the Hawler license area two wells were drilled and completed in the Banan field that have provided information that enhances our understanding of both the Banan Tertiary and Cretaceous reservoirs. At the Demir Dagh field we installed artificial lift in the Demir Dagh-8 well in the Cretaceous reservoir and have placed the well on production through the production facilities in the Demir Dagh field. The early but encouraging results from the Demir Dagh-8 well provide us with more confidence in our planned development for the field which will utilize horizontal wells to avoid or minimize production of both associated natural gas and water. We are currently drilling a horizontal sidetrack from the previously drilled Demir Dagh-3 well targeting the Cretaceous reservoir and expect this operation to be complete in December.

In the AGC Central license area planning and preparation for an exploration drilling campaign continue with an environmental and social impact assessment and a geohazard assessment both nearing completion.

Our budgeted capital expenditures for 2020 are $106 million with additional drilling planned in the Hawler license area and exploration drilling planned in the AGC Central license area. In the Hawler license area the drilling or workover of seven wells are planned. In the AGC Central license area we expect to continue preparations for the drilling of our first exploration well in the license area which is currently planned in late 2020.

During Q3 2019 we generated operating funds flow which exceeded cash used in investing activities.  We expect that cash on hand and cash receipts from net revenues and export sales will fund forecasted capital expenditures and operating and administrative costs in 2020, although additional capital may be  required to fund contingent consideration obligations, should they become payable, and exploration drilling in the AGC Central license area planned in 2020.  

We look forward to continuing to implement our plans in 2019 and 2020, achieving higher production in the Hawler license area and preparing for an exciting exploration drilling program in the AGC Central license area."

(1)

Field production costs represent Oryx Petroleum's working interest share of gross production costs and exclude the partner share of production costs carried by Oryx Petroleum

(2)

Field Netback is a non-IFRS measure that represents the Group's working interest share of oil sales net of the Group's working interest share of royalties, the Group's working interest share of operating expenses and the Group's working interest share of taxes. Management believes that Field Netback is a useful supplemental measure to analyse operating performance and provides an indication of the results generated by the Group's principal business activities prior to the consideration of production sharing contract and joint operating agreement financing characteristics, and other income and expenses. Field Netback does not have a standard meaning under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies

(3)

Oryx Petroleum Netback is a non-IFRS measure that represents Field Netback adjusted to reflect the impact of carried costs incurred and recovered through the sale of cost oil during the reporting period. Management believes that Oryx Petroleum Netback is a useful supplemental measure to analyse the net cash impact of the Group's principal business activities prior to the consideration of other income and expenses. Oryx Petroleum Netback does not have a standard meaning under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies

(4)

Operating Funds Flow is a non-IFRS measure that represents cash generated from operating activities before changes in non-cash assets and liabilities. The term Operating Funds Flow should not be considered an alternative to or more meaningful than "cash flow from operating activities" as determined in accordance with IFRS. Management considers Operating Funds Flow to be a key measure as it demonstrates the Group's ability to generate the cash flow necessary to fund future growth through capital investment. Operating Funds Flow does not have any standard meaning under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies

 

  • Revenue increased to $35.7 million in Q3 2019 versus $29.4 million in Q3 2018 due to a 62% increase in oil sales volumes, partially offset by a 25% decrease in average oil sales prices. Gross (working interest) production and sales of oil in Q3 2019 were 697,200 barrels and 698,600 barrels, respectively, versus 430,200 and 430,900 barrels, respectively, for Q3 2018. The average oil sales price realised in Q3 2019 was $46.05 per barrel versus $61.33 for Q3 2018. In addition to oil sales, revenue includes the recovery of carried costs.
  • Operating expenses in Q3 2019 increased 29% to $7.2 million versus $5.6 million in Q3 2018 due primarily to increased facilities operating and trucking costs resulting from operation of a greater number of wells and associated infrastructure at the Banan and Zey Gawra fields. Operating expenses on a per barrel basis declined 21% in Q3 2019 to $10.27/bbl versus $12.93/bbl in Q3 2018 due to higher sales volumes partially offset by higher costs. Per barrel operating expenses decreased slightly in Q3 2019 versus Q2 2019 as increased volumes offset the impact of additional costs associated with operating the Banan field. Oryx Petroleum currently carries production costs associated with a 15% participating interest held by the Kurdistan Regional Government. The Oryx Petroleum Netback achieved in Q3 2019 of $17.33 per barrel reflects the Field Netback plus adjustments for carried costs.
  • General and administration expenses increased 17% to $2.8 million in Q3 2019 versus $2.4 million in Q3 2018 due primarily to an increase in personnel costs resulting from higher estimated performance based compensation for 2019 assumed in Q3 2019 than estimated performance based compensation for 2018 assumed in Q3 2018.
  • Profit for Q3 2019 was $18.3 million compared to a loss of $5.2 million in Q3 2018. The improved result is primarily attributable to i) a non-cash change of $22.2 million to the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration obligation potentially payable to the vendor of the Hawler license area; and ii) a $3.6 million increase in net revenues. These positive factors were partially offset by a i) $1.6 million increase in operating expense; ii) a $0.4 million increase in general and administration expense and iii) a $0.8 million increase in depletion expense.
  • Operating Funds Flow was $9.8 million for Q3 2019 compared to $8.4 million in Q3 2018. The positive change in Operating Funds Flow is primarily due to increased oil sales volumes and a higher Oryx Petroleum Netback in Q3 2019 versus Q3 2018.
  • Net cash generated by operating activities was $9.7 million in Q3 2019 versus $4.9 million in Q3 2018. The change is primarily due to higher Oryx Petroleum Netback and lower cash administrative costs in Q3 2019 versus Q3 2018.
  • Net cash used in investing activities decreased to $7.5 million in Q3 2019 as compared to $9.2 million in Q3 2018. The decrease is due to decreased capital spending in the AGC Central license area and a larger decrease in non-cash assets and liabilities in Q3 2019 versus Q3 2018. These factors were partially offset by an increase in capital spending in the Hawler license area in Q3 2019 versus Q3 2018.
  • Capital expenditures in Q3 2019 totalled $11.9 million including: $11.5 million for drilling and facilities activities in the Hawler license area; and $0.4 million related to studies and drilling preparation activities in the AGC Central license area.
  • Cash and cash equivalents increased to $20.4 million at September 30, 2019 from $16.8 million at June 30, 2019 reflecting positive Operating Funds Flow partially offset by capital expenditures, and movements in non-cash working capital.
  • In March 2015, Oryx Petroleum entered into a Loan Agreement with AOG whereby AOG committed to provide a $100 million unsecured credit facility to Oryx Petroleum. As at September 30, 2019, the balance owing under the facility totalled $78.0 million, including $2.0 million in accrued interest.
    • Maturity date: July 1, 2020
    • Since June 30, 2019, interest compounds every six months and is payable in cash.
    • The Corporation is in discussions with AOG regarding a potential restructuring of principal and interest and expects such discussions to reach a conclusion in the coming months.
  • The Corporation is obligated to make further payments to the vendor of the Hawler license area contingent upon declaration of a second commercial discovery in the Hawler license area.
    • Contingent upon declaration of a second commercial discovery in the Hawler license area, a lump-sum payment of $66.0 million plus accrued interest is payable. The estimated fair value of the contingent consideration as at September 30, 2019 was $57.9 million. The estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was revised downwards by $16.0 million versus Q2 2019 due to a change in methodology that incorporates weighted probabilities of potential outcomes including an outcome where there is no second commercial declaration of discovery. As at September 30, 2019, the total balance of principal and accrued interest potentially owed under the contingent consideration obligation was $75.3 million.
    • An amendment to the terms of the original share purchase agreement negotiated with the vendor in the fourth quarter of 2018 to schedule the obligation as a series of annual payments in the event the contingent obligation was triggered expired on September 30, 2019.
    • In the event the contingent obligation is triggered, the Corporation will seek to secure a payment schedule from the vendor which, consistent with prior amendments, allows the Corporation to repay the obligation over several years.
  • As at November 6, 2019, 552,481,662 common shares are outstanding. As at November 6, 2019 there are: i) unvested Long Term Incentive Plan awards which are expected to result in the issuance of up to an additional 28,862,475 common shares upon vesting; and ii) 6,132,804 warrants outstanding issued in connection with an amendment to the Loan Agreement with AOG executed in December 2018.

Divestment of Interest in the Haute Mer B License Area

On April 23, 2018, a subsidiary of Oryx Petroleum entered into an agreement providing for the transfer of Oryx Petroleum's 30% participating interest in the Haute Mer B license offshore Congo (Brazzaville) to a subsidiary of Total S.A. The agreement provides for Oryx Petroleum to receive cash consideration of $13.3 million. Notwithstanding Oryx Petroleum's position that all conditions to closing have been either satisfied or waived, the counter-party has not agreed to close the transaction and has purported to terminate the agreement. Oryx Petroleum has hired external counsel and initiated arbitration to settle the dispute and believes strongly in the merits of its position. Notwithstanding, the arbitration panel may decide against Oryx Petroleum or Oryx Petroleum may otherwise be unsuccessful in realizing the contracted amounts. If the transaction does not close and the agreement is terminated, Oryx Petroleum may be adjudged to have an obligation to fund its share of the Haute Mer B costs which have been carried by Total S.A. since April 23, 2018 and amount to $14.0 million as of September 30, 2019. Oryx Petroleum expects the arbitration process and resolution of the dispute to be concluded in the next six months.

During the second quarter of 2019, Total S.A. and other members of the HMB license area contractor group relinquished their rights to explore and produce crude oil from the license area. Such relinquishment is not expected to impact Total S.A.'s financial liability under the transfer agreement with Oryx Petroleum as it is the Corporation's position that the obligation to close pre-existed relinquishment.
