Q3 2017 Highlights

  • Average production of 67,403 boe/d during Q3 2017 was up slightly compared to the prior quarter.
  • Fund flows from operations (“FFO”) for Q3 2017 was $131 million, a decrease of 11% from the previous quarter.
  • In Canada, Vermilion drilled 15 (12.8 net) wells and placed 12 (10.4 net) wells on production during the quarter, resulting in quarterly production growth of 10% for the Canadian business unit.
  • Vermilion completed its two (1.0 net) well drilling campaign in the Netherlands during the quarter with the drilling of Eesveen-02 (60% working interest) and Nieuwehorne-02 (42% working interest).  The Eesveen-02 well tested at a rate in excess of 18 mmcf/d net and is expected to be brought on production in mid-2018.  The Nieuwehorne-02 well encountered 10 metres of gas pay and is currently being prepared for a flow test.
  • In the US, production continued to grow following the three (3.0 net) well program in the first half of the year.  Production exceeded 1,000 boe/d in Q3 2017, representing a 16% increase compared to the previous quarter.
  • In Ireland, production from Corrib averaged 49 mmcf/d (8,173 boe/d) in Q3 2017, a 23% reduction from Q2 2017 due to extended downtime  following a plant turnaround.  Turnaround tasks were completed successfully, but after restarting the plant, unodorized gas was detected in the distribution network resulting in an extended period of downtime.  Production at Corrib resumed on October 11th after 21 days of downtime in Q3 and just over 10 days of downtime in Q4.  The annualized impact from this downtime, net to Vermilion, is estimated at approximately 900 boe/d.
  • Vermilion’s Board of Directors have formally approved an Exploration and Development (“E&D”) capital budget of $315 million for 2018, with associated production guidance of 74,500 to 76,500 boe/d.
