FieldPoint Petroleum Reports Second Quarter Results And Provides Update On Drilling Activity

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/MKT:FPP) announced today its second quarter financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Phillip Roberson, FieldPoint President, COO and CFO, stated, "Our second quarter results were much better than they appear on the surface. We are very fortunate that our new Ranger wells were coming online as we were faced with lower production from our Bone Spring wells in New Mexico, due to a bottleneck in processing capacity in that area. Our drilling partner, Cimarex Energy, made the decision to do pump upgrades during this period of slow production.  This should improve future production, but added to operating costs in this quarter.  In spite of being faced with some additional loss of production, we chose to continue our workover and recompletion efforts with legacy properties.  The end result is that we believe the lower earnings for this quarter will be paid back quickly in future production. I think it is important to note that so far this year we have completed four new horizontal wells in the Ranger Project and performed upgrades to several existing wells, adding significantly to future production expectations, and we have only added $500,000 of debt."

Financial Highlights for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2014 Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30 2013:

  • Total revenues increased to $2,398,309 from $2,297,683;
  • Net Income decreased to $227,007 from $376,537;
  • Earnings per share decreased to basic $0.03 and fully diluted $0.02, from $0.05 and $0.05 respectively; and
  • Adjusted EBITDAX (earnings before interest, taxes, depletion, amortization, exploration expense, and the effects of oil hedges) decreased to basic $0.13 and fully diluted $0.11, from $0.17 and $0.17 respectively.

Total revenue increased to $2,398,309 from $2,297,683 in the year ago quarter.  We produced 30,743 BOE in the current quarter at $77.01 per BOE versus 28,724 BOE at $75.42 per BOE in the year ago quarter.  We were pleased with the contribution from our Ranger 8A-1H and 11A-1H wells; however this was offset by lower production from our three Bone Spring wells due to a bottleneck in gas takeaway and processing capacity in the area.  We have been informed that the capacity will be increased by Q1 of 2015, which will allow us to increase production and drill our fourth Bone Spring well. Non-operated lease operating expenses also increased significantly during quarter from $680,240 in the year ago quarter to $985,810 in the current quarter.  This was mainly due to non-operated lease expenses for the Bone Spring wells; including pump upgrades which we believe will increase future production. We also saw an increase in lease operating expenses in our Apache Bromide field related to pump upgrades and we expect this to contribute to higher production in the coming quarters as well. 

Mr. Roberson added, "We have chosen to add the following new table of data to our reporting, which we believe will allow our shareholders to better compare our performance with other oil and gas companies. We plan to continue this in the future and hope you find it useful."

Adjusted EBITDAX

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as income (loss) before income taxes; exploration expense; depreciation, depletion, and amortization (DD&A); impairments; interest expense; total (gains) losses on derivatives, net, less net cash from settlement of commodity derivatives; and certain items not related to the Company's normal operations. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDAX provides information useful in assessing the Company's financial condition and results of operations and that Adjusted EBITDAX is a widely accepted financial indicator of a company's ability to incur and service Debt and fund capital expenditures.
