Current EPM Stock Info

Evolution Petroleum Corp. (ticker: EPM) has built its foundation asset in the Delhi field in NE Louisiana. Delhi is a unique, producing asset that delivers positive free cash flow—consistently.

The field is currently under CO2-EOR development. The company’s reserves report indicates that Evolution has approximately 10.8 MMBOE in total proved reserves as of June 30th, 2016.

The Delhi field production averaged 7,786 gross (2042 net) BOPD during Evolution’s March quarter—an increase of 25% since 2015. Evolution reports that the increase in production is largely a result of optimized CO2 flooding—wherein the company has selectively pumped its CO2 to higher yield zones in the reservoir.

During its March quarter, Evolution began production out of its NGL plant, which was responsible for the addition of approximately 200 BOEPD of natural gas liquids.

Optimizing EOR costs

Evolution has decreased its purchased CO2 volume from approximately 100 Mmcf per day in 2015, to 70 Mmcf per day currently. This has largely been a product of shutting off zones that show CO2 production, and more effective CO2 application.
