VAALCO Energy Announces Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2014 Results

HOUSTON, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — VAALCO Energy, Inc. (NYSE: EGY) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2014.

For the 2014 fourth quarter, VAALCO reported Adjusted Net Income of $9 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share. Adjusted Net Income excludes a $98.3 million non-cash impairment charge related to significantly lower projected oil prices used in the impairment valuation for the Etame, Ebouri, and Southeast Etame/North Tchibala fields, offshore Gabon as described below.  Including this charge, our reported net loss was $98.3 million, or a loss of $1.70 per share. The fourth quarter 2014 results were impacted by the substantial recent fall in oil prices and lower amounts of oil lifted from the Company’s offshore Gabon operations. These financial results compare with net income of $26.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2013.

For the year ended December 31, 2014, VAALCO reported Adjusted Net Income of $20.8 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, before the non-cash impairment charge related to projected oil prices used in the impairment valuation for the Etame Field, Ebouri Field, and Southeast Etame/North Tchibala fields, offshore Gabon.  Including this impairment charge of $98.3 million, the Company’s reported net loss was $77.6 million, or $1.36 per diluted share, compared to net income of $43.1 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2013.  The decrease in net income for full year 2014, compared to the same period in 2013, is primarily attributable to the impairment charge and due to lower revenue resulting from the impact of the decline in oil prices and lower amounts of barrels lifted from Company’s offshore Gabon operations.

In the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company produced on a gross basis approximately 5,803,000 barrels of crude oil (“Bbls”) (1,417,000 Bbls net to the Company), compared to approximately 6,244,000 Bbls (1,525,000 Bbls net to the Company) for the year ended December 31, 2013. In the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company produced on a net basis approximately 333,000 Bbls from its offshore Gabon operations compared to 405,000 Bbls produced in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Full year 2014 highlights:

  • Completed on-schedule the fabrication and installation of the two new production platforms at the Etame and Southeast Etame/North Tchibala fields offshore Gabon;
  • Successfully drilled and brought to production a development well in the South Tchibala field from the Avouma platform offshoreGabon;
  • Ended the year with approximately $102.0 million of available liquidity and only $15.0 million of funded debt
  • Mobilized the Transocean “Constellation II” jack up rig to begin the development drilling campaign offshore Gabon;
  • Completed the drilling of the first development well (Etame 8-H) of the current drilling campaign and began the drilling of a second development well (Etame 10-H) which began producing oil in the first quarter of 2015;
  • 2014 reserve replacement of approximately 2.4 million barrels of oil equivalent (“BOE”) equates to a reserve replacement ratio of 175%; and
  • Entered the Subsequent Exploration Phase at Angola Block 5 extending the exploration license until November 2017. In March 2015, VAALCO announced commencement of drilling its first well offshore Angola.

Steve Guidry, Chairman and CEO, commented: “We are very pleased with the operating progress we made during 2014 in the execution of our international growth strategy, including building out infrastructure, adding proven reserves and increasing production.  These achievements have made us a stronger Company as we enter 2015.  We are not immune to the impact of the recent significant decline in oil prices, however, our solid balance sheet should allow us to successfully navigate through this down cycle. During the coming months, we will look for opportunities to further enhance the efficiency of our operations and reduce development and operating costs on current and future projects in Gabon, Angola and Equatorial Guinea. I remain excited about the strategic direction of the Company and look forward to working with our partners to prudently and methodically advance our  development and exploration programs, allowing us to create further shareholder value.”

Gabon

In the fourth quarter of 2014, VAALCO commenced a new drilling and workover campaign offshore Gabon following the on-schedule installation of the Etame and SEENT platforms.   The contracted jack up drilling rig, Transocean’s “Constellation II”, was used to drill the Etame 8-H well, the first development well in the drilling campaign at the Etame platform. The well was determined to be producing hydrogen sulfide (“H2S”) during the initial testing and was subsequently shut-in.  VAALCO is planning to conduct an extended well test of the Etame 8-H well to confirm and quantify the presence of H2S detected during the initial 17 hour flow test.  The well test is expected to occur within the next month.

The rig was then utilized to drill the Etame 10-H in the 1-V fault block, immediately south of the main Etame reservoir.  The Etame 10-H well confirmed the presence of an undrained lower lobe of the Gamba reservoir in this fault block.  VAALCO recently announced first production from the well, which is currently being produced, on a gross basis, at approximately 3,000 barrels of oil per day.  The “Constellation II” is now drilling the Etame 12-H, an in-fill development well also to the 1-V fault block targeting the undrained lower lobe of the Gamba reservoir.  The rig will then be mobilized to drill development wells from the SEENT platform, including the Southeast Etame 2-H well in the Southeast Etame/North Tchibala field, where the Company and its partners drilled a successful exploration well in 2010.

VAALCO and its partners continued during the fourth quarter of 2014 to work on the design and cost projections for facilities to be constructed to handle the H2S in the oil produced from certain areas in the Etame Marin block.  Considering the substantial recent fall in oil prices, the Company and its partners are focusing on more cost efficient options for a processing facility (e.g. chemical removal options, construction of a smaller facility on existing structures, or the use of surplus equipment and used structures).  It is expected that the timing of the project startup will be known as early as the fourth quarter of 2015 with a goal of re-establishing production from the area impacted by H2S as soon as practical.  However, there can be no assurances that the processing facility will be completed by 2017, if at all, or that a more cost effective facility will cover all affected areas of the Ebouri and Etame fields. Should the Company and its partners’ evaluation result in no economic alternative, a decrease of as much as 2.4 million barrels of proved undeveloped reserves could result.

Onshore Gabon, VAALCO and its concession partner, Total Gabon, continue to work with the government of Gabon to obtain approval of a revised production sharing contract for the Mutamba Iroru block.  Once the contract is approved, a plan of development will be submitted. Development of the onshore block is expected to capitalize on synergies benefiting from VAALCO’s operating base in Port Gentil, Gabon.

Angola

As previously announced, in October 2014, the Company entered into the Subsequent Exploration Phase (“SEP”) on Block 5 offshoreAngola together with its working interest partner, Sonangol P&P, as provided for in the Production Sharing Agreement signed in 2006 with the Republic of Angola.  The SEP extends the exploration license for an additional three year period such that the new expiration date for exploration activities is November 30, 2017.

By entering the SEP, the Company has committed to drill two additional exploration wells during the exploration extension period. The four well obligation includes the two well commitment under the primary exploration period that carried over to the SEP period.

A drilling rig contract was signed in July 2014 for a semi-submersible rig, Transocean’s “Celtic Sea”, to drill the exploration well on the Kindele prospect, a post-salt objective. The well spudded on March 2, 2015 and is currently drilling at 3100 feet with a planned total depth of 7400 feet.  We expect to intersect the target Mucanzo sands next week.

Equatorial Guinea

During 2014, the Company and GEPetrol, the operator of Block P, continued to work on a joint operator model whereby the Company would have a significant role in future operator activities on the block.  The team will be studying options to take advantage of the lower capital costs associated with development-related equipment and services in order to improve the economics of the Block P development.

2014 Fourth Quarter Financial Results Discussion

Total oil and gas sales for the fourth quarter of 2014 were $23.0 million, as compared to $58.3 million for the same period in 2013.  The decrease in revenue is primarily related to a decrease in the realized sales price per barrel and due to lower number of barrels lifted from the Company’s offshore Gabon operations in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

Oil Revenues

Gabon

Crude oil revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2014 were $22.8 million, as compared to revenues of $58.0 million for the same period in 2013.  During the fourth quarter of 2014, VAALCO sold approximately 360,000 net Bbls at an average price of$63.49 per Bbl in Gabon compared to 531,000 Bbls at an average price of $109.12 per Bbl in 2013.

Natural Gas Revenues

United States

Natural gas revenues (including revenues from natural gas liquids) for the three months ended December 31, 2014, were $0.2 millioncompared to $0.3 million for the comparable period in 2013.  Natural gas sales were approximately 45 million cubic feet (MMcf) at an average price of $4.26 per thousand cubic feet (“Mcf”) including natural gas liquids for the three months ended December 31, 2014.  For the same period of 2013, natural gas sales were approximately 100 MMcf at an average price of $4.51 per Mcf including natural gas liquids.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Total production expenses excluding workovers for the fourth quarter of 2014 were $10.1 million, or $27.43 per BOE, compared to$8.6 million, or $15.76 per BOE, in the fourth quarter of 2013.  The increase in production expenses was in part attributable to boiler repairs on the FPSO vessel and insurance costs associated with drilling and workover activity.

Exploration expenses were $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $2.5 million in the comparable period in 2013.

During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company recorded an impairment loss of $98.3 million to write down its investment in certain fields comprising the Etame Marine Block, offshore Gabon, to its fair value. An impairment of $38.5 was recorded in the Etame field,$5.9 million in the Ebouri field and $53.9 million in the Southeast Etame/North Tchibala field.  The impairment is a result of the recent decline in the forecasted oil prices used in the impairment evaluation.

Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $3.6 million, compared to $9.6 million for the same period in 2013. The decrease in tax was primarily related to the decrease in revenue resulting from lower oil prices and lower sales volumes.

2014 Full-Year Financial Results Discussion

Total oil and gas sales for 2014 were $127.7 million, as compared to $169.3 million for 2013.  The decrease in revenue is primarily related to the lower number of barrels lifted from the Company’s offshore Gabon operations and a decrease in the realized sales price per barrel in the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to the year ended December 31, 2013.

Oil Revenues

Gabon

Crude oil revenues for 2014 were $126.3 million, as compared to revenues of $167.4 million for the same period in 2013.  VAALCO sold approximately 1,350,000 net Bbls at an average price of $93.68 per Bbl in Gabon in 2014, as compared to 1,544,000 net Bbls at an average price of $108.42 per Bbl in 2013.

Natural Gas Revenues

United States

Natural gas revenues including revenues from natural gas liquids for the year 2014 were $1.0 million, compared to $1.5 million for the comparable period in 2013.  Natural gas sales in 2014 were approximately 200 MMcf at an average price of $4.96 per Mcf including natural gas liquids.  For the same period of 2013, natural gas sales were approximately 300 MMcf at an average price of $4.50 per Mcf including natural gas liquids.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Production expense excluding workovers for 2014 was $29.6 million, or $21.27 per BOE, as compared to $29.0 million, or $18.10 per BOE, for 2013.  In 2014, well workover costs to replace electrical submersible pumps totaled $2.1 million compared to $7.6 million in 2013.

Exploration expense in 2014 was $15.4 million, as compared to $23.9 million in 2013. The exploration expense in 2014 was primarily attributable to $11.7 million in dry hole costs related to one unsuccessful exploration well offshore Gabon compared to the costs of dry holes drilled in Gabon and the United States in 2013 totaling $20.8 million.

As reported above in more detail, the Company recorded an impairment loss of $98.3 million to write down its investment in certain fields in the Etame Marin Block offshore Gabon to its fair value.

In 2014, the Company incurred $22.5 million in income taxes as compared to $34.1 million for 2013. All income tax expenses were associated with the Etame Marin block production and were incurred in Gabon. The lower income tax expense for 2014 versus 2013 was primarily the result of lower sales volumes and oil prices, which results in lower profit oil barrels subject to income taxes.

Year End 2014 Reserves

Reserve additions in 2014 were primarily due to positive performance revisions at the Avouma/South Tchibala, and Etame Fields. 96% of these reserves additions were oil and total year end reserves were 97% oil.

Capital Investments/Balance Sheet

In 2014, the Company invested $92.2 million in property and equipment additions (including amounts carried in accounts payable and excluding exploration dry hole costs), primarily associated with the construction and installation of  two new platforms, associated  production facilities, and development wells offshore Gabon.

The Company’s 2015 capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $65.0 million to $75.0 million to further develop the Etame Marin block offshore Gabon and to drill an exploration well on Block 5 in Angola.

On December 31, 2014, VAALCO had total liquidity of $101.5 million, comprised of a cash balance of $91.5 million (including cash held as restricted primarily for future drilling commitments offshore Angola) plus an estimated $10 million of available undrawn borrowing capacity on its credit facility.  The Company believes that this cash balance, combined with cash flow from operations and the remaining undrawn portion of the credit facility, will be sufficient to fund the Company’s 2015 operations.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Management uses the supplemental financial measure of Adjusted Net Income, which excludes the effect of non-cash asset impairments. Management uses this financial measure as an indicator of the Company’s operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas companies and believes it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts. Adjusted Net Income is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for loss applicable to common stockholders.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net income (GAAP) to Adjusted Net Income (non-GAAP) (unaudited and in thousands).

(1) Adjusted net income attributable to VAALCO Energy, Inc. is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Management believes it provides useful information to investors for analysis of VAALCO’s fundamental business on a recurring basis.  In addition, management believes that Adjusted net income attributable to VAALCO Energy, Inc. is widely used by professional research analysts and others in valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, and many investors use the published research of industry research analysts in making investment decisions.  Adjusted net income attributable to VAALCO Energy, Inc. should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or other income, cash flow or liquidity measures under U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
