Panoro Energy : Announces First Quarter 2020 Results and Provides Operations and Corporate Updates

05/28/2020 | 01:31am EST

Oslo, 28 May 2020 - Panoro Energy (the "Company" or "Panoro" with OSE ticker: "PEN") today announces the first quarter 2020 financial results and subsequent events:

Financial Highlights

· Gross revenue from continuing operations[1] for 1Q 2020 of USD 3.4 million compared to USD 13.7 million for the previous quarter, due to fewer liftings (70% lower in volume) and lower oil prices
· EBITDA from continuing operations of USD 0.3 million compared to USD 5.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019
· Q1 2020 Net income before tax of USD 9 million principally from gains on crude oil hedges
· Q1 2020 net group production from continuing operations of approximately 2,042 bopd (Q4 2019 average net production: 1,921 bopd)
· Cash balances of USD 24.2 million at quarter end (31 December 2019: USD 30.5 million) including cash held for bank guarantee
· Debt of USD 23.4 million (31 December 2019: USD 25.4 million), with USD 2.1 million having been repaid in the quarter

Operational Highlights

· Production and lifting operations maintained and unaffected through crisis
· Health and Safety systems and protocols proved resilient
· Capital expenditure materially reduced through the deferment of drilling activities in Gabon
· Gabon annual production guidance revised down due to impact of COVID-19 on well drilling and completion activities
· Tunisian gross production increased by 15% as compared to Q4 2019 to approximately 4,000 bopd in current quarter with further increase targeted in Q3 
· Rig secured to drill well on Guebiba field, to be followed by Salloum West exploration well

Corporate Highlights

· Hedging strategy proving effective in period of extremely volatile and low oil prices
· Farm-in agreement signed on 25 February 2020 for 12.5% Working Interest in Block 2B, offshore South Africa 

Outlook and Guidance

· Current 2020 net production guidance of 2,300-2,600 bopd due to announced revision in Gabon
· In Gabon, production from DTM-6H (drilled but not tied in) and DTM-7H (to be drilled) to be brought on as soon as conditions permit
· Production growth activity in Tunisia at unprecedented levels, with further increase expected in Q3 2020
· Dividend of PetroNor shares upon completion of sale of Aje

John Hamilton, CEO of Panoro, commented: "Decisive actions taken both prior to and during the ongoing crisis have put Panoro in a stable and resilient position. Our focus has been on protecting our highly valuable assets whilst remaining financially prudent until the dislocated macro environment improves. With 25-30% of our high-quality oil production hedged in 2020 and 2021, together with our significantly reduced capital expenditure budget, Panoro has taken steps to mitigate the impact of the recent dramatic collapse in oil prices. With some of the conditions easing recently, we are taking further actions towards resumption of some well activity in Tunisia, and await further improvements ahead of our planned growth in Gabon."

[(1)]Discontinued Operations 
Aje operations in Nigeria classified as discontinued operations following divestment agreement, pending completion, and excluded from continuing activities.
