InPlay Oil Corp. Announces Record Third Quarter 2018 Financial and Operating Results

Oil - 12 November 2018 - 7:12pm

CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InPlay Oil Corp. (TSX: IPO) (OTCQX: IPOOF) (“InPlay” or the “Company”) announces its financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.  InPlay’s condensed unaudited interim financial statements and notes, as well as management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 will be available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (“SEDAR”) and our website (“”).

We are pleased to present InPlay’s financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 with results in excess of forecast and record quarterly production, revenue and cashflow.

Q3 2018 Financial & Operating Highlights

  • Successfully closed the non-core asset disposition on October 1, 2018 (announced September 13, 2018) disposing approximately 250 boe/d (72% oil and liquids) for cash consideration of $16.7 million prior to adjustments.  This rationalization of assets at premium valuation metrics allows us to redeploy the proceeds towards our high rate of return Willesden Green Cardium drilling inventory.
  • Achieved record quarterly production of 4,773 boe/d, a 17% increase compared to the third quarter of 2017, resulting in average production of 4,529 boe/d for the first nine months of 2018, a 16% increase compared to the first nine months of 2017.  Total oil and liquids weighting also increased to 70% entirely attributable to light oil growth over the same respective periods.
  • Light oil production averaged 2,695 bbl/day for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, a 20% increase compared to the first nine months of 2017 and light oil and liquids production averaged 3,160 bbl/day for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, a 22% increase over the same respective period of 2017 reflecting the focused development of our light oil weighted Cardium assets.
  • Generated revenues of $22.8 million, an increase of 57% from the third quarter of 2017 (96% derived from light oil and liquids).  Light oil revenues in the third quarter increased 64% over the third quarter of 2017 to $19.7 million.
  • Operating costs per boe of $15.62 decreased 11% compared to the third quarter of 2017 and 10% compared to the second quarter of 2018.
  • Operating income of $13.0 million, represents a 110% increase over the third quarter of 2017 with a corresponding 80% increase in operating netback to $29.51 per boe over the same respective period.
  • Generated adjusted funds flow from operations of $10.0 million or $0.15 per basic share which includes $0.8 million in realized losses on commodity derivative contracts, representing a 115% increase over the third quarter of 2017 and a 36% increase over the second quarter of 2018. 
  • Net Debt/Annualized Adjusted funds flow from operations improved to 1.6 times from 2.3 times for the third quarter of 2017 and 2.0 times for the second quarter of 2018.

Third Quarter 2018 Capital & Operational Program

InPlay’s capital program over the third quarter of 2018 saw a continued focus on our Willesden Green bioturbated Cardium assets where we have delivered exceptional results with wells consistently exceeding internal type curves and delivering some of the best Cardium production results in the area.  Our continuous drilling program is delivering peer leading capital efficiencies as we have achieved some of the shortest spud to rig release drilling days for extended reach horizontal (“ERH”) wells seen to date.  Our most recent six 1.5 mile ERH wells have averaged 9.7 drilling days with the last two wells averaging nine drilling days which to date are pacesetters in the area.  Of equal importance is the consistency in our drilling performance where the maximum deviation from average drilling time of the six 1.5 mile ERH wells has been +/- 0.7 days.   The 1.5 mile extended reach horizontal Cardium wells have allowed us to access approximately 60% more reservoir while incurring approximately only 20% more in additional capital expenditures compared to a one mile horizontal well.

InPlay’s capital program of $17.4 million for the third quarter of 2018 continued to focus on the development of the Willesden Green bioturbated Cardium where we completed two (2.0 net) ERH wells that were drilled in the second quarter and we drilled an additional five (3.3 net) ERH wells of which three (1.3 net) were completed in the third quarter and two (2.0 net) were completed early in the fourth quarter. Over the first nine months of 2018, InPlay has drilled an equivalent of 18.5 gross horizontal miles (13.3 net horizontal miles) in Willesden Green. The two recent ERH wells completed and brought on production early October have been flowing to date at an average choked rate of 520 boe/d (87% light oil and liquids) per well  and have continued to clean up with current average production per well of 652 boe/d (82% light oil and liquids).  We expect the production from these wells to remain fairly stable flowing at choked rates for 2-3 months.


Results to date from our drilling program continue to exceed our internally forecasted type curves and, even with the non-core asset disposition on October 1, 2018 of approximately 250 boe/day, we remain on track to exceed our recently increased production guidance delivering top tier production growth amongst light oil peers.

Forward West Texas Intermediate (“WTI”) pricing for the remainder of the year is in the $60 - $65 per bbl range.  Light Sweet Edmonton pricing, however, started to experience weakness beginning in September with higher differentials than normal to WTI.  These increased differentials occurred as a result of extended refinery turnarounds in the Midwest USA, increased oil supplies and transportation infrastructure restrictions.  We expect these higher differentials to persist throughout the fourth quarter of 2018.  Although this negative pricing environment could continue into 2019 we do see this as a temporary situation which is anticipated to return to more normalized levels in the New Year.

The Willesden Green area is where InPlay will deploy the majority of the remaining budgeted development capital in the fourth quarter of 2018 on the completions of the two (2.0 net) wells that were drilled at the end of the third quarter and on drilling an additional three (2.2 net) ERH wells.  InPlay has elected to defer the completion of two (2.0 net) ERH wells, originally scheduled to be on production in mid-November, until the first quarter of 2019 when improved light oil differentials are anticipated.  Despite the delay of production from these two (2.0 net) deferred wells, we still expect to exceed our average annual production guidance of 4,600 boe/day (71% oil and liquids). Field production estimates are currently over 5,350 boe/d (72% oil and liquids) exceeding our year end exit forecast of 5,100 to 5,200 boe/day (72% oil and liquids) as our recent new drills are significantly exceeding forecasted production.  To further assist in managing the current higher light oil differentials we plan to manage light oil inventory levels at our facilities over the next few months in order to sell this oil in what we believe should be an improved differential pricing environment in 2019.

We also plan to drill one vertical stratigraphic well on our northern East Basin Duvernay lands to continue the surrounding Crown lands for an additional five years and satisfy the Company’s remaining flow-through share obligations. Our plans are still to develop our Huxley Duvernay lands at a measured pace as we continue to closely monitor the significant amount of offsetting competitor activity that is in proximity to InPlay’s lands.

Our Willesden Green Cardium and East Basin Duvernay assets have InPlay established in one of the most economic horizontal development light oil plays as well as one of the most exciting emerging light oil plays in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The Company is positioned to be one of the highest growth junior light oil focused companies which currently has 70% of production and 96% of total revenues derived from oil and liquids.  We are excited about InPlay’s near-term growth and development potential given these high quality assets in the Cardium and East Basin Duvernay plays. Plans are to continue to deploy capital towards our high rate of return assets and given our financial flexibility, we expect to be able to deliver sustainable light oil production per-share growth for our shareholders.

We thank our employees and directors for their ongoing commitment and dedication and we thank all of our shareholders for their continued interest and support.  We are excited about the strong operational results we have achieved to date and we look forward to reporting upcoming results from our ongoing development program.

Reader Advisories

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Oil and Gas Metrics
InPlay uses certain terms within this news release that do not have a standardized prescribed meaning under IFRS and GAAP and therefore these measurements may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measurements of other entities.  The terms “Adjusted funds flow from operations”, “Adjusted funds flow from operations per share”, “Adjusted funds flow from operations per boe”, “operating netbacks” , “and operating netback per boe”, “operating income”, “net debt” and “working capital (deficit)” used in this news release are not recognized measures under GAAP. Management believes that in addition to net earnings (loss) and cash flow provided by operating activities as defined by GAAP, these terms are useful supplemental measures to evaluate operating performance as it demonstrates the Company’s field level of profitability relative to current commodity prices and to assess leverage. “Adjusted funds flow from operations” should not be considered as an alternative to or more meaningful than cashflow provided by operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the Company’s performance.  InPlay’s determination of adjusted funds flow from operations may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Adjusted funds flow from operations is calculated by adjusting for changes in operating non-cash working capital and decommissioning expenditures from cash flow provided by operating activities.  These items are adjusted from cash flow provided by operating activities as these expenditures are primarily incurred on previous operating assets and there is uncertainty with the timing and payment of these items and they are incurred on a discretionary basis making them less useful in the evaluation of InPlay’s operating performance.  Adjusted funds flow from operations per share is calculated using the same weighted average number of shares outstanding used in calculating earnings per share.  Users are cautioned, however, that these measures should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or cash flow provided by operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP as an indication of InPlay’s performance.  For a detailed description of InPlay’s method of the calculation of adjusted funds flow from operations and its reconciliation to GAAP terms, see “Non-GAAP Measures” in the Company’s MD&A filed on Sedar.  The term “net debt” is not recognized under GAAP and is calculated as bank debt plus working capital deficit.  Working Capital (deficit) is calculated as current assets less current liabilities adjusted for risk management derivative contract fair values, deferred lease credits, flow-through share premiums and current portion of decommissioning obligation.  Net debt is used by management to analyze the financial position and leverage of InPlay. InPlay monitors working capital and net debt as part of its capital structure.  Such terms do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and, therefore, may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures for other entities. InPlay also uses “operating netback” and “operating netback per boe” as a key performance indicator. Operating netback per boe is utilized by InPlay to evaluate the operating performance of its petroleum and natural gas assets, and is determined by deducting royalties and operating and transportation expenses from petroleum and natural gas revenue (all on a per boe basis).  Operating Income provides the total income provided by operating activities over the period and is determined by deducting royalties and operating and transportation expenses from petroleum and natural gas revenue

Management uses oil and gas metrics for its own internal planning and performance measurements and to provide shareholders with measures to compare InPlay's operations over time.  Readers are cautioned that the information provided by these metrics, or that can be derived from the metrics presented in this press release, should not be relied upon for investment or other purposes. Test results and initial or short term production rates disclosed in this news release may not necessarily be indicative of long term performance of wells or ultimate recoveries.

The forward-looking information and statements contained in this news release speak only as of the date hereof and InPlay does not assume any obligation to publicly update or revise any of the included forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.

BOE equivalent
Barrel of oil equivalents or BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different than the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a 6:1 conversion basis may be misleading as an indication of value.

VivoPower International PLC Reports Unaudited Financial Results For the Six Months Ended September 30, 2018

Oil - 12 November 2018 - 4:38pm

LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VivoPower International PLC (Nasdaq: VVPR) (“VivoPower” or the “Company”), an international solar power company, today announced its results for the six months ended September 30, 2018.


  • Total revenue for the six months ended September 30, 2018 was $18.5 million, an increase of 14.0%, as compared to $16.2 million for the six months ended September 30, 2017.
  • Revenue from the Company’s power services businesses for the six months ended September 30, 2018 was $17.4 million, an increase of 20.5% over the prior year reflecting the strong market dynamics in the industrial regions of Australia, as well as the Company’s aggressive push into new geographies within Australia and solar engineering, procurement, and construction (“EPC”) markets.
  • Gross profit attributable to power services was $2.5 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018, which represents a gross margin of 14.6%, up from 13.6% for the full year ended March 31, 2018, and 14.0% for the six months ended September 30, 2017.
  • Unrestricted cash resources increased to $3.1 million as at September 30, 2018, compared to $1.9 million as at March 31, 2018.
  • Total debt as at September 30, 2018, was $20.9 million, down from $22.3 million as at March 31, 2018.
  • On July 3, 2018, the Company successfully completed the sale of its minority equity interests in its two North Carolina solar investments, NC-31 and NC-47 (together, the “NC Projects”) for net proceeds of $11.5 million.
  • Net assets of our joint venture with Innovative Solar Systems, LLC, (“ISS Joint Venture”) of $12.9 million has been reclassified to assets held for sale as the Company aggressively pursues its strategic review, which has resulted in multiple prospective investors submitting proposals to acquire all or a portion of the joint venture.
  • Power services subsidiary, Kenshaw Electrical Pty Limited (“Kenshaw”) has significantly expanded its power services activities with one of Australia’s leading data center groups, Canberra Data Centres (“CDC”). Kenshaw’s strong track record with CDC for the supply and installation of power generators has resulted in a record volume of new contracts worth US$24.2 million. As a result of this increased business, Kenshaw has also announced the opening of a new office in Canberra to support CDC, as well other customers and emerging business opportunities in the region. The superior reliability and resilience of onsite power generators and recycled water, provided in part, by the power generators supplied by Kenshaw, and has helped CDC to become the largest provider of data storage to the Australian government.
  • Power services subsidiary, J.A. Martin Electrical Pty Limited, was successful in securing a high-visibility EPC contract for the 3.6 megawatts (“MW”) Cubbie Solar Project in Queensland, Australia, which will produce electricity to the largest irrigation property in the southern hemisphere. The project is the first phase of a longer-term plan to expand to 7.2 MW and will also include battery storage.
  • We made excellent progress with the 50 MW development portfolio of utility-scale solar projects in New South Wales, Australia, and have completed the development milestones for the first 15 MW phase, which we expect to commence construction by the end of June 2019.
  • In light of the potential sale of the ISS Joint Venture, the Company has recommitted to its strategic focus on the strong growth profile of the solar power generation market in the United States, particularly the higher margin profile of small utility and commercial and industrial (“C&I”) sectors, consistent with the Company’s current solar development activities in Australia. This shift may be accomplished through organic growth or consolidation of smaller players in the highly fractured C&I market within North America.

Conference Call Information

The Company will hold a conference call 5 p.m. EST time on Monday, November 12, 2018, to discuss the Company’s first half 2018 results and business outlook. The dial-in phone number for the live audio call is:
