Dundee Energy Limited Announces 2016 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/16/17 -- Dundee Energy Limited ("Dundee Energy" or the "Corporation") (TSX: DEN) today announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2016. The Corporation's annual audited consolidated financial statements, along with its management's discussion and analysis have been filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") and may be viewed under the Corporation's profile at www.sedar.com or the Corporation's website at www.dundee-energy.com.


--  Proved and probable reserves at December 31, 2016 were 22,360 Mboe, a
    12% increase over 20,047 Mboe at December 31, 2015. A 4.3% drop in
    proved reserves from oil and natural gas production was more than offset
    by positive revisions related to improved well performance at several of
    the Corporation's oil and gas producing properties and the assignment of
    proved undeveloped reserves to several recompletion and development
    drilling prospects.
--  Natural gas production volumes during the year ended December 31, 2016
    averaged 11,001 Mcf/d (2015 - 11,660 Mcf/d). This 6% decline is
    consistent with historical decline rates for these long life reserves.
--  Oil production volumes decreased to an average of 485 bbls/d during the
    year ended December 31, 2016 (2015 - 560 bbls/d). This decrease of 13%
    falls in the lower range of the expected decline rates for these
    reserves. The successful and ongoing downhole maintenance program
    implemented in 2014 is the contributing factor to these improved decline
--  Revenues before royalty interests earned from oil and natural gas sales
    during the year ended December 31, 2016 were $23.9 million, compared
    with $29.6 million of revenues earned in the prior year, reflecting
    reduced production volumes and a decrease in the realized sales price
    for commodities on a comparative period-over-period basis.
--  Net loss attributable to owners of the parent for the year ended
    December 31, 2016 was $19.1 million or $0.10 per share. This compares
    with a net loss attributable to owners of the parent of $8.3 million or
    $0.04 per share incurred in the prior year. Included in the net loss
    during the current year is an impairment of $11.9 million against
    certain natural oil and gas properties.
--  Field netbacks during the year ended December 31, 2016, before realized
    amounts related to derivative financial instruments, were $1.01/Mcf
    (2015 - $1.19/Mcf) from natural gas and $21.65/bbl (2015 - $20.69/bbl)
    from oil and liquids.

Approximately $2.2 million of the decrease in net revenues results directly from lower realized prices for the underlying commodities. The remaining $2.6 million decrease in net revenues reflects lower production volumes as a consequence of scheduled overhaul work completed on two compressors related to the offshore gas manufacturing facilities, as well as reduced workover activities in the oilfield during the year as a result of financial restrictions relating to the Corporation's borrowing capacity.

Evidentiary hearings, in connection with the binding arbitration proceedings filed in 2015, were completed in late July, and the Corporation anticipates that the arbitral tribunal will reach its decision in the first quarter of 2017.


The Corporation believes that important measures of operating performance include certain measures that are not defined under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and as such, may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. While these measures are non-IFRS, they are common benchmarks in the oil and natural gas industry, and are used by the Corporation in assessing its operating results, including net earnings and cash flows.

--  "Field Level Cash Flows" are calculated as revenues from oil and gas
    sales, less royalties and production expenditures, adjusted for realized
    gains or losses on risk management contracts.
--  "Field Netbacks" refer to field level cash flows expressed on a
    measurement unit or barrel of oil equivalent basis.
