COPL Announces First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

 

London, United Kingdom; Calgary, Canada: May 16, 2023 - Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited and its affiliates ("COPL" or the "Company") (XOP: CSE) & (COPL: LSE), an international oil and gas exploration, production and development company with production and development operations focused in Converse and Natrona counties, Wyoming, USA, announces the publication of its Financial Statements and Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

First Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights:

· The Company's average crude oil sales before royalties averaged 974 bbls/d as compared to 1,177 bbls/d in the fourth quarter of 2022. The decrease in oil production is due primarily to operational interruptions at certain high impact wells, including unusually severe winter weather conditions, which caused multiple field wide shut-ins due to road closures to the fields and blockages within the fields restricting access for crude oil offtake.

· Petroleum sales, net of royalties were $5.2 million as compared to $6.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The decrease is due mainly to the reduction in oil production and a reduction in the realized sales price of oil of $74.94/bbl as compared to $79.84/bbl in the fourth quarter of 2022.

· The Company incurred a net realized hedging gain of $0.5 million on butane swap contracts as compared to net loss of $2.2 million on crude oil and butane swap contracts in the fourth quarter of 2022. Specifically, the Company eliminated its crude oil hedge swap contracts in for the first and second quarters of 2023 after executing a costless hedge restructuring in December 2022 as compared to a realized loss on crude swaps of $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The Company had a realized gain of $0.5 million on butane hedge contracts as compared to a gain of $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The butane hedges were put in place to protect the liquid purchases required for the miscible flood injection program.

· The operating netback was $17.19/bbl, before the net realized gain on crude oil and butane commodities contracts as compared to $23.38/bbl, in the fourth quarter of 2022. The decrease is due mainly to the reduction in WTI from $82.65/bbl in the fourth quarter of 2022 as compared to $76.13/bbl in the first quarter of 2023 and increased operating costs due mainly to a series of severe winter storms from late December 2022 to the last week in March 2023. This caused field wide shut-ins multiple times due to road closures to the fields and blockages within the fields. These issues caused a substantial increase in operating costs due to heavy equipment required for snow removal and hot oiling required to break emulsions in the produced crude from storage tanks in order to meet requirements and specifications for sales.

· On March 24, 2023, the Company issued a total of $11.8 million net proceeds of convertible bonds to further its corporate strategy of its US operations. The Company's affiliate COPL America also agreed to waivers of certain debt covenants from the convertible bond closing date, to 30 September 2023 providing COPL with financial flexibility during the installation of the gas gathering system upgrades at its BFSU miscible flood to resolve infrastructure bottlenecks that have constrained oil production and gas recovery. COPL is working to increase oil production and lower its operating, financing and G&A costs whilst COPL America prepares for senior debt refinancing.

· In an effort to manage its capital resources and liquidity, the Company reduced capital expenditures in the period to $1.6 million as compared to $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

· A cash position of $10.7 million as at March 31, 2023 as compared to $4.0 million as at December 31, 2022.
