CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (PIPE – TSX) -- Pipestone Energy Corp. (“Pipestone” or the “Company”) is pleased to report its Q2 2021 financial and operational results, as well as provide an update on its operations.

During Q2 2021, Pipestone delivered record quarterly production and cash flow, underpinned by the continued efficient execution of its organic development program. The Company remains on track to generate free cash flow beginning in Q4 2021, with forecast annual free cash flow of $95 million in 2022 and $190 million in 2023 (US$65 WTI | C$2.50 AECO).

SECOND QUARTER 2021 CORPORATE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Record average quarterly production of 23,336 boe/d (31% condensate, 46% total liquids), an 8% quarterly increase over Q1 2021 and a 39% increase over Q2 2020. The record production was achieved despite processing curtailments due to high ambient temperatures experienced in Alberta during late June;
  • Improvement in operating netback to a corporate record of $19.60/boe, an increase of 12% over Q1 2021 and an 88% increase over Q2 2020;
  • The Company generated record revenue of $82.3 million and record adjusted funds flow from operations of $35.5 million ($0.19 per share basic and $0.13 per share fully diluted);
  • The Company continued the effective execution of its 2021 capital program with 8 wells drilled and rig-released and 6 wells completed during the second quarter of 2021. Total capital expenditures, including capitalized G&A, were $47.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021; and
  • The Company generated strong returns on invested capital, with Q2 2021 annualized ROCE and CROIC of 14.1% and 18.9%, respectively, as compared to a Q2 2020 annualized ROCE and CROIC of (0.5%) and 8.6%, respectively.

As a result of continued efficiencies with its drilling program, the Company plans to accelerate $10 million of completion and tie-in capital from early 2022 to Q4 2021. Pipestone’s revised 2021 capital guidance is now $170 - $175 million (up from $155 - $165 million), with its 2022 forecast capital spending reduced to $185 million (down from $195 million). The incremental 2021 capital will be spent completing and equipping 3 additional wells on the 6-13 pad.

With material free cash flow generation forecast to begin in Q4 2021, Pipestone will initially prioritize the repayment of debt, with a target of less than 0.5x debt to cash flow prior to the end of 2022. The Company also believes its common shares are trading at a significant discount to their intrinsic value. As such, the Company plans to implement a normal course issuer bid in Q4 2021, concurrent with the transition to free cash flow generation. In addition, the Pipestone board is assessing all options to maximize shareholder returns through potential uses for future free cash flow, which could include additional share buyback programs, a future dividend, as well as investment in further growth or potential acquisitions.

RECENT OPERATIONS HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Sustained Production Growth: During July 2021, a planned 10-day outage at the 3rd party Wapiti gas processing facility was successfully completed to permanently address the cause of an unscheduled outage that occurred during Q3 2020. Based on field estimates, month-to-date August 2021 production averaged approximately 27,000 boe/d, including all 6 wells from the 15-25 pad now on-stream, keeping us well on-track to achieve our 2021 annual production guidance. In addition to the 15-25 pad, the Company expects to bring 9 additional wells on production after August 2021, which includes six wells from the 6-24 pad and three wells from the 14-4 pad.
  • Successful Infrastructure Expansion: All necessary regulatory permits required for the new 12” gathering pipeline from Pipestone’s 6-30 pad to Veresen Midstream’s 16-28 battery and compressor station are in place and construction commenced in early August. Additionally, installation of the production handling and water disposal facilities on the 6-30 pad began earlier in Q3 2021. Everything remains on-track for a Q4 2021 start-up. As previously disclosed, these facilities will add an additional 50 MMcf/d (25 MMcf/d firm + 25 MMcf/d IT) plus associated liquids of processing capacity for Pipestone;
  • Strong Well Results: The three new wells on the condensate-rich 6-13 pad, including one Lower Montney well, achieved an average per well IP60 of 536 bbl/d wellhead condensate and 2.8 MMcf/d raw gas (condensate gas ratio, or “CGR”, of 191 bbl/MMcf), which is in-line with type curve expectations. The three well 8-15 pad has achieved an average per well IP90 of 662 bbl/d wellhead condensate and 3.6 MMcf/d raw gas (CGR of 184 bbl/MMcf). The six well 3-12 pad has achieved an IP180 of 405 bbl/d wellhead condensate and 4.3 MMcf/d raw gas (CGR of 94 bbl/MMcf). Preliminary results from the 15-25 pad are demonstrating strong deliverability, with more details to be provided once longer-term production data is available.

Advisory Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

Non-GAAP measures

This press release includes references to financial measures commonly used in the oil and natural gas industry. The terms “adjusted funds flow from operations”, “cash flow”, “free cash flow, “operating netback”, “adjusted funds flow netback”, “net debt”, “available funding”, “CROIC”, and “ROCE” are not defined under IFRS, which have been incorporated into Canadian GAAP, as set out in Part 1 of the Chartered Professional Accountants Canada Handbook – Accounting, are not separately defined under GAAP, and may not be comparable with similar measures presented by other companies. The reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the nearest GAAP measure are discussed in the MD&A dated August 11, 2021, a copy of which is available electronically on Pipestone Energy’s SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Management believes the presentation of the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors and shareholders as the measures provide increased transparency and the opportunity to better analyze and compare performance against prior periods.

Adjusted funds flow from operations

Pipestone Energy uses “adjusted funds flow from operations” (cash from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital and decommissioning provision costs incurred), a measure that is not defined under IFRS. Adjusted funds flow from operations should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, cash from operating activities, income (loss) or other measures determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company’s performance. Management uses adjusted funds flow from operations to analyze operating performance and leverage and believes it is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the funds generated by Pipestone Energy’s principal business activities prior to consideration of changes in working capital.

Cash flow

“Cash flow” is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated as cash from operating activities plus changes in non-cash working capital and decommissioning provision costs incurred, and is not defined under IFRS. Cash flow should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, cash from operating activities, income (loss) or other measures determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company’s performance. Management uses cash flow to analyze operating performance and leverage and believes it is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the funds generated by Pipestone Energy’s principal business activities prior to consideration of changes in working capital.

Free cash flow

“Free cash flow” is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated as cash from operating activities plus changes in non-cash working capital and decommissioning provision costs incurred, less capital expenditures incurred, and is not defined under IFRS. Free cash flow should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, cash from operating activities, income (loss) or other measures determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company’s performance. Management uses free cash flow to analyze operating performance and leverage and believes it is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the funds generated by Pipestone Energy’s principal business activities, inclusive of ongoing capital expenditures, prior to consideration of changes in working capital.

Operating netback and Adjusted funds flow netback

Operating netback is calculated on either a total dollar or per-unit-of-production basis and is determined by deducting royalties, operating and transportation expenses from liquids and natural gas sales adjusted for realized gains/losses on commodity risk management contracts.

Adjusted funds flow netback reflects adjusted funds flow from operations on a per-unit-of-production basis and is determined by dividing adjusted funds flow by total production on a per-boe basis. Adjusted funds flow netback can also be determined by deducting G&A, transaction costs, cash financing expenses, adding financing income and adjusting for realized gains/losses on interest rate risk management contracts on a per-unit-of-production basis from the operating netback. Refer to “Financial and Operating Results” section above for further details.

Operating netback and adjusted funds flow netback are common metrics used in the oil and natural gas industry and are used by Company management to measure operating results on a per boe basis to better analyze and compare performance against prior periods, as well as formulate comparisons against peers.

Net debt

Net debt is a non-GAAP measure that equals bank debt outstanding plus adjusted working capital. The Company does not consider its convertible preferred share obligation to be part of net debt as this represents a non-cash obligation that will ultimately be settled by conversion into Pipestone Energy common shares and reclassified from a liability to share capital on the Company’s statement of financial position. Net debt is considered to be a useful measure in assisting management and investors to evaluate Pipestone Energy’s financial strength.

Available funding and Adjusted working capital

Available funding is comprised of adjusted working capital and undrawn portions of the Company’s Credit Facility. Adjusted working capital is comprised of current assets less current liabilities on the Company’s consolidated statement of financial position and excludes the current portion of risk management contracts and lease liabilities. The available funding measure allows management and others to evaluate the Company’s short-term liquidity.

CROIC and ROCE

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as profit or loss before interest, income taxes, depletion and depreciation, adjusted for certain non-cash and extraordinary items primarily relating to unrealized gains and losses on risk management contracts. Adjusted EBITDA is used to calculate CROIC. Adjusted EBIT is calculated as adjusted EBITDA less depletion and depreciation. Adjusted EBIT is used to calculate ROCE.

CROIC is determined by dividing adjusted EBITDA by the gross carrying value of the Company’s oil and gas assets at a point in time. For the purposes of the CROIC calculation, the net carrying value of the Company’s exploration and evaluation assets, property and equipment and ROU assets, is taken from the Company’s consolidated statement of financial position, and excludes accumulated depletion and depreciation as disclosed in the financial statement notes to determine the gross carrying value.

ROCE is determined by dividing adjusted EBIT by the carrying value of the Company’s net assets. For the purposes for the ROCE calculation, net assets are defined as total assets on the Company’s consolidated statement of financial position less current liabilities at a point in time.

CROIC and ROCE allow management and others to evaluate the Company’s capital spending efficiency and ability to generate profitable returns by measuring profit or loss relative to the capital employed in the business.

All forward-looking statements herein are expressly qualified by this advisory.

Initial Production Rates and Short-Term Test Rates

This document may disclose test rates of production for certain wells over short periods of time (i.e. IP90), which are preliminary and not determinative of the rates at which those or any other wells will commence production and thereafter decline. Short-term test rates are not necessarily indicative of long-term well or reservoir performance or of ultimate recovery. Although such rates are useful in confirming the presence of hydrocarbons, they are preliminary in nature, are subject to a high degree of predictive uncertainty as a result of limited data availability and may not be representative of stabilized on-stream production rates.

Production over a longer period will also experience natural decline rates, which can be high in the Montney play and may not be consistent over the longer term with the decline experienced over an initial production period. Initial production or test rates may also include recovered “load” fluids used in well completion stimulation operations. Actual results will differ from those realized during an initial production period or short-term test period, and the difference may be material.

Oil and Gas Measures

Basis of Barrel of Oil Equivalent

Petroleum and natural gas reserves and production volumes are stated as a “barrel of oil equivalent” (boe), derived by converting natural gas to oil equivalency in the ratio of 6,000 cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil. Readers are cautioned that boe figures may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6,000 cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil is based on energy equivalency, which is primarily applicable at the burner tip, and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

CGR

Any references herein to “CGR” mean condensate/gas ratio and is expressed as a volume of condensate (expressed in barrels) per million cubic feet (mmcf) of natural gas.

Production

References to natural gas and condensate production in this press release refer to the shale gas and natural gas liquids (which includes condensate), respectively, product types as defined in National Instrument 51-101, Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities. References to liquids include tight oil and natural gas liquids (including condensate, butane and propane).
