“As an organization, we responded aggressively to the challenging commodity price environment in fiscal 2015. We focused on our low risk assets, including horizontal drilling and recompletions, which allowed us to maintain production and arrest base declines,” Energy XXI Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer John Schiller said. “Our operations team is doing an excellent job of reducing costs in the field and delivering development opportunities that offer attractive yields in today’s commodity price environment and we continue to practice capital discipline across our operations. We are actively managing our balance sheet and our liquidity. We continue to focus on reducing our debt and to date we have retired over $425 million in face value of debt lowering our projected annual interest expense by over $32 million.”
Energy XXI’s results for the fiscal fourth-quarter and fiscal year-end 2015 were significantly impacted by non-cash ceiling test write-downs of oil and gas properties, the company said.
In its press release, Energy XXI said it has $679 million of liquidity, with $124 million available on its $500 million revolver. Proved reserves are estimated at 183.5 MMBOE.
