Torchlight Energy Reports First Quarter 2014 Earnings
PLANO, TX -- March 15, 2014 -- Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRCH) ("Torchlight Energy" or "the Company"), a rapidly growing mid-continent oil and gas company, today reported its first quarter results for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The Company filed a 10-Q with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the first quarter of 2014 on May 15, 2014.
First Quarter 2014 Highlights
- Revenues increased 198% to $0.64 million revenues for first quarter 2014 vs. 2013
- 15 producing wells at March 31, 2014 with net 250 BOEPD
- Drilling programs for all five initial wells with Ring Energy underway
- Increased total acreage in the Hunton play to over 25,000 gross acres across 5 AMIs
- Raised $7 million of capital through the sale of common stock in Q1 2014
"We remain on target with our exploration and production goals for 2014," stated Tom Lapinski, Chief Executive Officer of Torchlight Energy. "By taking smaller working interests in a number of projects in several prospective areas, we have been able to aggressively drill more lower risk wells without deploying significant amounts of capital on a per well basis. However, as we continue throughout the year, our working interest percentages should increase as we start to drill in new AMIs."
The Company had $22.2 million of assets and $12.8 million shareholders' equity at March 31, 2014 compared to $16.7 million and $9.2 million, respectively, at December 31, 2013.
Torchlight Energy currently has interests in four main oil and gas projects:
1. Marcelina Creek Field Development in Wilson County, Texas
2. Ring Energy Joint Venture in Southwest Kansas
3. Hunton play in partnership with Husky Ventures in Central Oklahoma
4. Smokey Hills Prospect in McPherson County, Kansas
Torchlight Energy commenced drilling its initial 5-well program in Southwest Kansas in February 2014. This program, which is part of a joint venture agreement with Ring Energy, Inc., entails drilling vertical wells in Mississippian targets. Results have not yet been announced.
As of March 31, 2014, Torchlight Energy has five AMIs with Husky Ventures: the Cimarron Trail; the Chisolm Trail; the Viking Prospect in Central Oklahoma; the Rosedale Prospect interest in ten townships in South Central Oklahoma; and Prairie Grove prospect, the most recent AMI the Company entered into in February 2014. Total prospective acreage across all AMIs is approaching 300,000 acres. Torchlight is actively producing in 15 wells, drilling 5 wells, and fracking or flowing back 5 additional wells across all of its AMIs with Husky Ventures.
The Company acquired an 18% working interest in the Smokey Hills Prospect in McPherson County, Kansas that included approximately 10,000 gross acres and a well, the Hoffman 1-H. Torchlight plans to increase its working interest to approximately 50% and drill 10 vertical wells in this area during late second quarter or early third quarter 2014.
Drilling plans for the next 90 to 120 days are progressing as planned. The Company expects to continue its program of 5 wells per month with Husky, going to 6 sometime in early third quarter 2014, continue its drill program in SW Kansas with Ring Energy, drill another Austin Chalk horizontal well in South Texas starting in June or early July 2014 and lastly, Torchlight expects to begin its Central Kansas operated play by early third quarter 2014.
The Company is actively engaged in discussions for additional $20 to $25 million of debt financing in order to meet drilling capital needs for all of its programs. Looking beyond 2014 all future drilling needs are expected be met out of cash flow from continuing operations and/or borrowing capability on a traditional reserve based line of credit.
Management will host a conference call at 4:15 p.m. ET on May 15, 2014 to discuss its first quarter 2014 earnings results.
