Such forward looking statements or information are based on a number of assumptions, all or any of which may prove to be incorrect. In addition to any other assumptions identified in this document, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: the ability of Vermilion to obtain equipment, services and supplies in a timely manner to carry out its activities in Canada and internationally; the ability of Vermilion to market crude oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas successfully to current and new customers; the timing and costs of pipeline and storage facility construction and expansion and the ability to secure adequate product transportation; the timely receipt of required regulatory approvals; the ability of Vermilion to obtain financing on acceptable terms; foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; future crude oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas prices; and management's expectations relating to the timing and results of exploration and development activities.

Although Vermilion believes that the expectations reflected in such forward looking statements or information are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on forward looking statements because Vermilion can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Financial outlooks are provided for the purpose of understanding Vermilion's financial position and business objectives, and the information may not be appropriate for other purposes. Forward looking statements or information are based on current expectations, estimates, and projections that involve a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by Vermilion and described in the forward looking statements or information. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the ability of management to execute its business plan; the risks of the oil and gas industry, both domestically and internationally, such as operational risks in exploring for, developing and producing crude oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas; risks and uncertainties involving geology of crude oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas deposits; risks inherent in Vermilion's marketing operations, including credit risk; the uncertainty of reserves estimates and reserves life and estimates of resources and associated expenditures; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production and associated expenditures; potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects; Vermilion's ability to enter into or renew leases on acceptable terms; fluctuations in crude oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas prices, foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; health, safety, and environmental risks; uncertainties as to the availability and cost of financing; the ability of Vermilion to add production and reserves through exploration and development activities; the possibility that government policies or laws may change or governmental approvals may be delayed or withheld; uncertainty and current evolutions with relation to sustainability/ESG reporting methodologies; uncertainty in amounts and timing of royalty payments; risks associated with existing and potential future law suits and regulatory actions against Vermilion; and other risks and uncertainties described elsewhere in this document or in Vermilion's other filings with Canadian securities regulatory authorities.

The forward looking statements or information contained in this document are made as of the date hereof and Vermilion undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, unless required by applicable securities laws.

This document contains metrics commonly used in the oil and gas industry. These oil and gas metrics do not have any standardized meaning or standard methods of calculation and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies where similar terminology is used and should therefore not be used to make comparisons. Natural gas volumes have been converted on the basis of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil equivalent. Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet to one barrel of oil is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

This document may contain references to sustainability/ESG data and performance that reflect metrics and concepts that are commonly used in such frameworks as the Global Reporting Initiative, the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, and the Value Reporting Foundation (Sustainability Accounting Standards Board). Vermilion has used best efforts to align with the most commonly accepted methodologies for ESG reporting, including with respect to climate data and information on potential future risks and opportunities, in order to provide a fuller context for our current and future operations. However, these methodologies are not yet standardized, are frequently based on calculation factors that change over time, and continue to evolve rapidly. Readers are particularly cautioned to evaluate the underlying definitions and measures used by other companies, as these may not be comparable to Vermilion's. While Vermilion will continue to monitor and adapt its reporting accordingly, the Company is not under any duty to update or revise the related sustainability/ESG data or statements except as required by applicable securities laws.

Highlights

Q2 2022 fund flows from operations ("FFO")(1) was $453 million ($2.75/basic share)(2) and free cash flow ("FCF")(3) was $340 million ($2.07/basic share)(4), an increase of 16% and 12%, respectively from the prior quarter. The increases were primarily due to higher commodity prices. Cash flow from operating activities was $530 million in Q2 2022, including the impact from asset retirement obligations settled and changes in non-cash operating working capital.
Pro forma Q2 2022 FFO and FCF incorporating the incremental 36.5% ownership in Corrib was $536 million ($3.26/basic share) and $422 million ($2.56/basic share), respectively. As a reminder, all FCF from the Corrib acquisition accrues to Vermilion as at January 1, 2022 and will be netted off the approximate $600 million purchase price at the time of closing which we expect to occur in Q4 2022.
With clear line of sight to achieving our next mid-cycle(5) debt target, we are pleased to outline our formal return of capital framework. We intend to return an increasing amount of capital to shareholders as debt levels decrease using a debt grid to guide near-term Return of Capital allocation decisions.
In conjunction with our Q2 2022 release, we announced a 33% increase to our Q3 2022 quarterly cash dividend to $0.08 CDN per share which equates to an annual dividend of $0.32 CDN per share, or approximately $53 million. Dividends will remain a key component of our return of capital framework as we seek to provide shareholders with a resilient and increasing base dividend; however, we will limit the annual cash dividend to approximately 10% of our mid-cycle FFO.
Based on our Return of Capital Allocation Grid, recent commodity strip(6) and internal estimates, we anticipate returning up to 25% of FCF in 2H 2022 and up to 50% - 75% of FCF in 2023. We will consider various options to return capital; including share buybacks, regular and special dividends and a potential substantial issuer bid. Based on our review of a number of valuation data points, we expect the majority of the incremental capital return to be in the form of share buybacks initially.
In early July 2022, we announced the approval of a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") for the purchase of up to 16,076,666 common shares, representing approximately 10% of Vermilion's public float as at June 22, 2022. To date, we have repurchased 1.25 million common shares for $35 million.
Net earnings were $363 million in Q2 2022, an increase of 28% from the prior quarter due to higher commodity prices and net hedging gains.
Cash flow used in investing activities totaled $613 million in the second quarter including exploration and development ("E&D") capital expenditures(7) of $113 million and acquisition capital of $522 million.
The Leucrotta acquisition closed on May 31, 2022 and the assets have been successfully integrated into Vermilion. We are now focused on completing the 6-well Montney pad that was drilled in Q2 2022. The Mica asset significantly increases the depth and quality of our North American inventory and is expected to add multiple decades of development that will enhance FCF to the business.
Long-term debt in Q2 2022 was $1.5 billion and net debt(8) was $1.6 billion, resulting in our net debt to trailing FFO ratio decreasing to 1.1 times(9) compared to 1.2 times in the prior quarter.
Production in Q2 2022 averaged 84,868 boe/d(10) a decrease of 2% from the previous quarter, primarily due to planned and unplanned downtime.
Production from our North American operations averaged 58,027 boe/d(10) in Q2 2022, an increase of 3% from the prior quarter primarily due to the Leucrotta acquisition, which closed on May 31, 2022.
Production from our International operations averaged 26,840 boe/d(10) in Q2 2022, a decrease of 9% from the prior quarter primarily due to natural decline, offshore drilling delays and unplanned downtime in Australia.
As a result of forest fire related downtime in France, offshore drilling delays in Australia, combined with inflationary pressure, we are increasing our 2022 capital budget by $50 million to $550 million. Annual production guidance, excluding the Corrib acquisition volumes, remains unchanged at 86,000 to 88,000 boe/d. Our exit rate forecast of 95,000 to 100,000 boe/d, including the Corrib acquisitions volumes, also remains unchanged.
We released the annual update to our online sustainability report in July 2022. Notable highlights include the decrease in our Scope 1 emission intensity to .018 tCO2e per throughput operated boe, in line with our target to reduce our 2019 baseline of .019 tCO2e per throughput operated boe by 15% to 20% by 2025, and coverage of our Corrib Biodiversity Action Plan achievements.

Message to Shareholders

Global commodity prices continued to strengthen through the second quarter, driving another quarter of record fund flows from operations ("FFO") and free cash flow ("FCF") for Vermilion. FFO was $453 million (cash flows from operating activities of $530 million), representing a 16% increase over the prior quarter. Exploration and development ("E&D") capital expenditures were $113 million in Q2 2022, resulting in quarterly FCF of $340 million. Free cash flow in Q2 2022 was used to partially fund the Leucrotta acquisition which closed on May 31, 2022. The remainder of the Leucrotta purchase price was funded with debt which resulted in a slight increase in Q2 2022 net debt to $1.6 billion; however, with the increase in FFO our net debt to trailing FFO ratio decreased to 1.1x.

We have successfully integrated the Leucrotta assets and assembled a Mica asset team which is now focused on completing the 6-well Montney pad that was drilled in Q2 2022. We are excited to have these assets in our portfolio and look forward to scaling up development in the years ahead. The Mica asset significantly increases the depth and quality of our North American inventory and is expected to add multiple decades of development and enhance FCF to the business.

Closing of the Corrib acquisition continues to progress as we move closer to obtaining all remaining partner and government approvals. We expect the transaction to close in the fourth quarter with an estimated closing cash payment in the range of $100 to $150 million after adjusting for the FCF accrued throughout the year. Pro forma Q2 2022 FFO and FCF incorporating the incremental 36.5% ownership in Corrib was $536 million and $422 million, respectively.

We remain on track to achieve our next debt target of $1.2 billion by the end of 2022, and with this clear line of sight we are pleased to outline our formal return of capital framework which will see an increasing proportion of FCF returned to shareholders as debt levels decrease. Over the past two years we have been focused on balancing debt reduction and portfolio enhancement, all with the goal of maximizing value and the return of capital to our shareholders over the long term. Vermilion is in a very strong position from both an asset base and financial perspective. We announced two strategic acquisitions over the past year, funded with free cash flow, and will have reduced debt by approximately $1 billion, relative to Q2 2020 debt levels, by the end of this year(1). While we will continue to keep a close eye on debt and reduce it even further to ensure we maintain a strong balance sheet through all commodity cycles, we are now in a position to increase our return of capital to shareholders. We are confident that our globally diversified asset base combined with our disciplined approach to capital allocation will generate value for our shareholders over the long-term. Further details on our return of capital framework is outlined below.

Return of Capital

Vermilion declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 CDN per share in Q2 2022 which was paid on July 15, 2022. With two strong quarters now behind us and a clear line of sight to achieving our next mid-cycle(2) debt target of $1.2 billion, we are now in a position to return a greater proportion of free cash flow to our shareholders. Vermilion has a long history of returning capital to its shareholders primarily through dividends. Dividends will remain a key component of our return of capital framework as we seek to provide shareholders with a resilient and increasing base dividend; however, we will limit the annual cash dividend outlay to approximately 10% of our mid-cycle FFO. In conjunction with our Q2 2022 release, we announced a 33% increase to our Q3 2022 quarterly cash dividend to $0.08 CDN per share which equates to an annual dividend of $0.32 CDN per share or approximately $53 million based on the current number of shares outstanding. At this dividend per share level, we have significant capacity to increase the base dividend and plan to provide ratable increases over time.

In addition to strengthening our balance sheet, Vermilion has made other structural improvements to its business by increasing our International production weighting through European natural gas exposure while also enhancing our North American inventory with a high quality long-life Montney asset. These structural improvements, combined with the strong fundamental outlook for global commodities will further underpin our ability to return capital to shareholders. The amount of FCF available for return of capital will increase as debt levels decrease based on the illustrative grid outlined below. This grid is not intended to be prescriptive quarter-to-quarter but will be used as a tool to guide near-term Return of Capital allocation decisions while taking into account other capital requirements such as further debt reduction, asset retirement obligations and acquisitions.

Return of Capital Allocation Grid
Mid-Cycle D/FFO Ratio >1.5x 1.0x - 1.5x 0.5x - 1.0x <0.5x
Net Debt $MM >1,500 1,000 - 1,500 500 - 1,000 <500
FCF Distribution % up to 25% up to 50% up to 75% up to 90%

Based on our Return of Capital Allocation Grid, recent commodity strip(3) and internal estimates, we anticipate returning up to 25% of FCF in 2H 2022 and up to 50% - 75% of FCF in 2023 while reducing debt to a target of $850 million by the end of 2023, which implies an undrawn $1.6 billion credit facility. We will consider various options to return capital; including share buybacks, regular and special dividends and a potential substantial issuer bid. Based on a number of datapoints reviewed, we expect the majority of the incremental capital return to be in the form of share buybacks initially. In early July 2022, we announced the approval of a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") for the purchase of up to 16,076,666 common shares, representing approximately 10% of Vermilion's public float as at June 22, 2022. To date, we have repurchased 1.25 million common shares for $35 million. We look forward to providing continued updates on our return of capital initiatives through the second half of this year and throughout 2023 as we carefully weigh capital allocation decisions against various uses of excess free cash flow with a view of acting in the long-term interests of shareholders.

Q2 2022 Operations Review

North America

Production from our North American operations averaged 58,027 boe/d(4) in Q2 2022, an increase of 3% from the prior quarter primarily due to the Leucrotta acquisition which closed on May 31, 2022. Drilling and completion activity in west-central Alberta and south-east Saskatchewan was limited during the second quarter due to spring breakup. During the second quarter, we completed one (1.0 net) well and brought on production one (0.6 net) condensate-rich Mannville natural gas well in west-central Alberta, and we drilled one (1.0 net) well and completed two (2.0 net) wells in south-east Saskatchewan. Following the announcement of the Leucrotta acquisition in late March 2022, we assembled our Mica asset team and focused on integrating the assets and working closely with the Leucrotta team in drilling the first six (6.0 net) well Montney pad. Drilling was successfully completed during the second quarter and the team is now focused on completion activities. While we remain optimistic that an agreement on natural resource activity reviews will be reached between the BC Government and the Blueberry River First Nations in due course, our team has a plan to continue drilling on the Alberta side of the Mica property in 2023 should we see further delays in permit approvals.

In the United States, we drilled four (3.8 net) wells of our planned six (5.8 net) operated Turner wells and completed two (2.0 net) wells during the second quarter. Three (2.8 net) wells are two-mile lateral wells which are significantly more economic than one-mile laterals. One (1.0 net) well was brought on production during the second quarter while the remaining wells will be completed and brought on production during the third quarter. In addition, one (0.4 net) two-mile non-operated Turner well is planned for drilling in Q4 2022.

International

Production from our International operations averaged 26,840 boe/d(4) in Q2 2022, a decrease of 9% from the prior quarter primarily due to natural decline and offshore drilling delays in Australia. In Australia, the drilling of our two-well program was delayed by approximately one month due to unexpected maintenance and repairs on the third-party contracted rig. Drilling commenced late in the second quarter and is expected to finish in early September with production to start shortly thereafter. In Europe, much of our activity during the second quarter was focused on preparing for our 2H 2022 drilling campaign which will include two (1.1 net) wells in Netherlands, three (3.0 net) wells in Hungary and two (2.0 net wells) in Croatia.

Outlook and Guidance Update

Our Q3 2022 capital program is well underway as we finish up the drilling program in Australia, complete and tie in the remaining Turner wells in the US, execute our south-east Saskatchewan drilling program and complete the 6-well Montney pad at Mica. In Europe, we are making final preparations for an active drilling campaign to commence in the third quarter and continue through the fourth quarter. Early in the third quarter, a forest fire near our Cazaux field in southern France resulted in approximately 1,500 bbl/d of production being temporarily shut-in which will impact Q3 production in France.

Our Q3 2022 production will include a full quarter contribution from the Leucrotta acquisition and new production from the US and south-east Saskatchewan drilling programs; however, these volumes will be partially offset by the Australia drilling delay and fire related downtime in France. Taking all this into account, we expect Q3 2022 production to be in-line with Q2 2022.

As a result of forest fire related downtime in France, offshore drilling delays in Australia, combined with inflationary pressure, we are increasing our 2022 capital budget by $50 million to $550 million. We are maintaining our annual production guidance of 86,000 to 88,000 boe/d, excluding the Corrib acquisition volumes. We plan to update our production guidance once we have greater certainty on timing of the Corrib close. Our exit rate forecast of 95,000 to 100,000 boe/d, including Corrib acquisition volumes, remains unchanged.

Commodity Hedging

Vermilion hedges to manage commodity price exposures and increase the stability of our cash flows. In aggregate, as of August 9, 2022, we have 36% of our expected net-of-royalty production hedged for the remainder of 2022. With respect to individual commodity products, we have hedged 64% of our European natural gas production, 20% of our oil production, and 41% of our North American natural gas volumes for the remainder of 2022, respectively.

Guidance

On November 29, 2021, we released our 2022 capital budget and associated production guidance. On March 28, 2022, we increased our 2022 capital expenditure guidance to $500 million and our 2022 annual production guidance to 86,000 to 88,000 boe/d to reflect the post-closing impact of the acquisition of Leucrotta Exploration Inc. On August 11, 2022, as a result of forest fire related downtime in France, offshore drilling delays in Australia, combined with inflationary pressure, we increased our 2022 budget by $50 million to $550 million. 2022 guidance does not include contribution from the Corrib Acquisition and will be updated upon close.

The following table summarizes our guidance:

Date Capital Expenditures ($MM) Production (boe/d)
2022 Guidance
2022 Guidance November 29, 2021 425 83,000 to 85,000
2022 Guidance March 28, 2022 500 86,000 to 88,000

A reconciliation to primary financial statement measures can be found within the "Financial Position Review" section of this MD&A.
(5) Capital expenditures is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The measure is calculated as the sum of drilling and development costs and exploration and evaluation costs from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. We consider capital expenditures to be a useful measure of our investment in our existing asset base. Capital expenditures are also referred to as E&D capital. A reconciliation to primary financial statement measures can be found within the "Non-GAAP and Other Specified Financial Measures" section of this MD&A.
(6) Acquisitions is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The measure is calculated as the sum of acquisitions from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, Vermilion common shares issued as consideration, the estimated value of contingent consideration, the amount of acquiree's outstanding long-term debt assumed plus or net of acquired working capital deficit or surplus. We believe that including these components provides a useful measure of the economic investment associated with our acquisition activity. A reconciliation to the acquisitions line item in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows can be found in "Supplemental Table 3: Capital Expenditures and Acquisitions" section of this MD&A.

Financial performance review

Q2 2022 vs. Q2 2021

We recorded net earnings of $362.6 million ($2.20/basic share) for Q2 2022 compared to net earnings of $451.3 million ($2.79/basic share) in Q2 2021. The decrease in net earnings was primarily due to non-recurrence of impairment reversals, partially offset by increased FFO driven by higher revenue on strong commodity prices and unrealized derivative gains in Q2 2022 on our commodity hedges.
Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 18■ 2022 Second Quarter Report
We generated cash flows from operating activities of $530.4 million in Q2 2022 compared to $253.4 million in Q2 2021 and fund flows from operations of $452.9 million in Q2 2022 compared to $172.9 million in Q2 2021. The increases were primarily due to higher commodity prices, which is reflected in our consolidated realized price per boe increasing from $51.93/boe in Q2 2021 to $111.55/boe in Q2 2022. This was partially offset by increased current taxes and royalties, driven by increased pricing. Variances between cash flows from operating activities and funds flow from operations are primarily driven by working capital timing differences.

YTD 2022 vs. YTD 2021

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we recorded net earnings of $646.6 million compared to net earnings of $951.2 million for the comparable period in 2021. The decrease in net earnings was primarily due to a decrease in magnitude of the impairment reversals recorded in the first half of 2021 of $952.6 million (net of $303.9 million deferred income tax expense), compared to impairment reversals recorded in 2022 of $144.4 million (net of $47.7 million deferred income tax expense). This was partially offset by higher fund flows from operations driven by increased consolidated realized pricing and deferred tax recoveries primarily due to increased forecast commodity prices resulting in the recognition of non-expiring tax loss pools in Ireland.
Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 19■ 2022 Second Quarter Report
Cash flows from operating activities increased by $498.9 million to $871.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, and fund flows from operations increased by $507.8 million to $842.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the same period in 2021. These increases were primarily driven by a 115% increase in our consolidated realized price from $50.60/boe to $108.54/boe. This was partially offset by taxes and royalties which increased as a result of the increase in revenue, as well as higher operating expenses primarily due to increased power costs in Europe. Variances between cash flows from operating activities and funds flow from operations are primarily driven by working capital timing differences.
Production review

Q2 2022 vs. Q2 2021

Consolidated average production of 84,868 boe/d in Q2 2022 decreased slightly compared to Q2 2021 production of 86,335 boe/d. Production decreased in Canada, Australia, France, Ireland, and the Netherlands due to natural decline, this was partially offset by an increase in Germany of 1,864 boe/d and the United States by 1,231 boe/d due to 2021 acquisition and development activity.

YTD 2022 vs. YTD 2021

Consolidated average production of 85,537 boe/d in the six months ended June 30, 2022 decreased slightly from the 86,306 boe/d in the prior year comparative period. Production decreased in Canada, Australia, France, Ireland, and the Netherlands due to natural decline, this was partially offset by an increase in Germany of 2,184 boe/d and the United States by 937 boe/d due to 2021 acquisition activity.
Activity review
For the three months ended June 30, 2022, capital expenditures of $113.2 million were incurred.
In our North America core region, capital expenditures of $54.9 million were incurred during Q2 2022. In Canada, $30.8 million was incurred during the second quarter, we completed one (1.0 net) well and brought on production one (0.6 net) condensate-rich Mannville natural gas well in west-central Alberta, and we drilled one (1.0 net) well and completed two (2.0 net) wells in south-east Saskatchewan. Following the announcement of the Leucrotta acquisition in late March 2022, we assembled our Mica asset team and focused on integrating the assets and working closely with the Leucrotta team in drilling the first six (6.0 net) Montney gas well pad. Drilling was completed during the quarter and the team is now focused on completion activities. In the United States, $24.1 million was incurred primarily related to drilling four Turner locations as part of our planned six well program.
In our International core region, capital expenditures of $58.2 million were incurred during Q2 2022. Our activities included $37.8 million incurred in Australia primarily related to drilling and facility activities for our 2022 two-well drilling campaign, and $11.9 million incurred in France on facilities and subsurface maintenance activities.

Financial sustainability review

Cash flow from operations and free cash flow

Cash flows from operating activities increased by $498.9 million to $871.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the prior year period which was primarily driven by a 115% increase in consolidated realized prices.
Free cash flow of $644.3 million increased by $471.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the prior year period which was primarily driven by an increase of fund flows from operations on higher realized prices, partially offset by higher expenditure on drilling and development activities.

Long-term debt and net debt

Long-term debt decreased to $1.5 billion as at June 30, 2022 from $1.7 billion as at December 31, 2021 as a result of net repayments made in the year on the revolving credit facility, driven by increased free cash flow. During Q2 2022, Vermilion closed a private offering of US $400.0 million 8-year senior unsecured notes in which proceeds were used to repay a portion of the revolving credit facility. Concurrent with the issuance of the 2030 senior unsecured notes and at Vermilion's election, the maturity date of the revolving credit facility was extended to May 29, 2026 and the total facility amount was reduced to $1.6 billion from $2.1 billion.
Net debt at June 30, 2022 of $1.6 billion decreased slightly compared to December 31, 2021, mainly due to a decrease in long-term debt as a result of repayments of $633.1 million, partially offset by timing of working capital movements.
The ratio of net debt to four quarter trailing fund flows from operations(1) decreased to 1.1 as at June 30, 2022 (December 31, 2021 - 1.2 ) mainly due to higher four quarter trailing fund flows from operations.
(1) Net debt to four quarter trailing fund flows from operations is a supplementary financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. It is calculated as net debt (capital measure) over the FFO from the preceding 4 quarters (total of segments measure). The measure is used to assess our ability to repay debt.

As an internationally diversified producer, we are exposed to a range of commodity prices. In our North America core region, our crude oil is sold at benchmarks linked to WTI (including the Edmonton Sweet index, the Saskatchewan LSB index, and the Canadian C5+ index) and our natural gas is sold at benchmarks linked to the AECO index (in Canada) or the Henry Hub index (in the United States). In our International core region, our crude oil is sold with reference to Dated Brent and our natural gas is sold with reference to NBP, TTF, or indices highly correlated to TTF.

Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 22■ 2022 Second Quarter Report
Crude oil prices increased in Q2 2022 relative to Q2 2021. Global crude fundamentals continued to signal a tight market with continued geopolitical supply risks and disruptions. Year-over-year, Canadian dollar WTI and Brent prices rose 71% and 72%, respectively.
In Canadian dollar terms, year-over-year, the Edmonton Sweet differential narrowed by $3.18/bbl to a discount of $0.64/bbl against WTI, and the Saskatchewan LSB differential narrowed by $2.21/bbl to a discount of $1.91/bbl against WTI.
Approximately 33% of Vermilion's Q2 2022 crude oil and condensate production was priced at the Dated Brent index (which averaged a premium to WTI of US$5.37/bbl), while the remainder of our crude oil and condensate production was priced at the Saskatchewan LSB, Canadian C5+, Edmonton Sweet, and WTI indices.
In Canadian dollar terms, prices for European natural gas linked to NBP and TTF rose by 87% and 254%, respectively, in Q2 2022 compared to Q2 2021. Russian supply decreases combined with an elevated risk of further Russian supply risk supported higher European gas prices. LNG competition with Asia and high global coal and European carbon prices have also been supportive to natural gas prices.
Natural gas prices in Canadian dollar terms at AECO and NYMEX HH increased by 134% and 163% respectively in Q2 2022 compared to Q2 2021. NYMEX prices benefited from below average inventories driven by record LNG export demand, strong power demand from above average cooling degree days and a continued lack of production growth in Q2. AECO was supported by strong Alberta natural gas demand from permanent additions in the power sector and from oil sands production growth, combined with storage levels remaining below average despite high WCSB production growth and NGTL maintenance impacts.
For Q2 2022, average European natural gas prices represented a $21.99/mcf premium to AECO. Approximately 37% of our natural gas production in Q2 2022 benefited from this premium European pricing.
For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Canadian dollar strengthened 8% against the Euro compared to Q2 2021.
For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Canadian dollar weakened 4% against the US Dollar compared to Q2 2021.

Production from our North American operations averaged 58,027 boe/d(1) in Q2 2022, an increase of 3% from the prior quarter primarily due to the Leucrotta acquisition which closed on May 31, 2022. Drilling and completion activity in west-central Alberta and south-east Saskatchewan was limited during the second quarter due to spring breakup. During the second quarter, we completed one (1.0 net) well and brought on production one (0.6 net) condensate-rich Mannville natural gas well in west-central Alberta, and we drilled one (1.0 net) well and completed two (2.0 net) wells in south-east Saskatchewan. Following the announcement of the Leucrotta acquisition in late March 2022, we assembled our Mica asset team and focused on integrating the assets and working closely with the Leucrotta team in drilling the first six (6.0 net) well Montney pad. Drilling was successfully completed during the second quarter and the team is now focused on completion activities.

In the United States, we drilled four (3.8 net) wells of our planned six (5.8 net) operated Turner wells and completed two (2.0 net) wells during the second quarter. Three (2.8 net) wells are two-mile lateral wells which are significantly more economic than one-mile laterals. One (1.0 net) well was brought on production during the second quarter while the remaining wells will be completed and brought on production during the third quarter. In addition, one (0.4 net) two-mile non-operated Turner well is planned for drilling in Q4 2022.

Production from our International operations averaged 26,840 boe/d(1) in Q2 2022, a decrease of 9% from the prior quarter primarily due to natural decline and offshore drilling delays in Australia. In Australia, the drilling of our two-well program was delayed by approximately one month due to unexpected maintenance and repairs on the third-party contracted rig. Drilling commenced late in the second quarter and is expected to finish in early September with production to start shortly thereafter. In Europe, much of our activity during the second quarter was focused on preparing for our 2H 2022 drilling campaign which will include two (1.1 net) wells in Netherlands, three (3.0 net) wells in Hungary and two (2.0 net wells) in Croatia.

Crude oil sales volumes (bbls/d) Q2 2022 Q2 2021 YTD 2022 YTD 2021
Australia 2,436 3,523 3,086 3,372
France 8,044 9,149 7,891 8,288
Germany 1,180 1,091 1,116 890
International 11,660 13,763 12,093 12,550
Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 26■ 2022 Second Quarter Report

Sales increased on a dollar and per boe basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the prior year comparable periods due to higher realized prices across all business units as a result of significant increases in the commodity markets combined with increased production volumes due to prior year acquisitions in Germany. These increases were partially offset by lower sales volumes across multiple business units due to natural decline combined with the timing of liftings in Australia.

Royalties in our International core region are primarily incurred in France, where royalties include charges based on a percentage of sales and fixed per boe charges. Our production in Australia and Ireland is not subject to royalties.

Royalties increased on a dollar and per unit basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the comparable prior year periods primarily due to higher sales prices combined with an increase in royalty rates in Germany.

Royalties as a percentage of sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 decreased to 4.2% compared to 5.3% in the prior year comparative periods primarily due to higher sales in business units that are not subject to royalties combined with the impact of RCDM royalties in France, which are levied on units of production and not subject to changes in commodity prices. This was partially offset by an increase in royalty rates in Germany.

International (8,813) (3.64) (11,750) (4.64) (16,341) (3.27) (18,287) (3.73)

Transportation expense decreased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the comparable prior year periods primarily due to the volume of liftings in France, partially offset by 2021 acquisition activity in Germany resulting in higher volumes produced and sold requiring transportation in this region. On a per unit basis, transportation expense decreased primarily due to one-time expenses incurred in 2021 subsequent to the conversion of the Grandpuits refinery.

Our production in Australia, Netherlands and Central and Eastern Europe is not subject to transportation expense.

Fluctuations in fund flows from operations may occur as a result of changes in production levels, commodity prices, and costs to produce petroleum and natural gas. In addition, fund flows from operations may be affected by the timing of crude oil shipments in Australia and France. When crude oil inventory is built up, the related operating expense, royalties, and depletion expense are deferred and carried as inventory on the consolidated balance sheet. When the crude oil inventory is subsequently drawn down, the related expenses are recognized within profit or loss.

General and administration

General and administration expense increased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the prior year comparable periods primarily due to higher legal, tax, and financial advisory costs.

PRRT and corporate income taxes

PRRT increased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the prior year comparable periods primarily due to higher sales in Australia, partially offset by higher capital expenditures.
Corporate income taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 increased versus the prior year comparable period primarily due to higher taxable income as a result of improvements in realized commodity prices in 2022.

Interest expense

Interest expense increased for the three months ended June 30, 2022 versus the prior year comparable period primarily due to the higher interest rate on the new 2030 senior unsecured notes.
Interest expense decreased for the six months ended June 30, 2022 versus the prior year comparable period primarily due to lower average drawn balances and a lower pricing grid level on the revolving credit facility partially offset by interest on the new 2030 senior unsecured notes.
Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 29■ 2022 Second Quarter Report

Realized gain or loss on derivatives

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, we recorded realized losses on our crude oil and natural gas hedges due to higher commodity pricing compared to the strike prices on our hedges.
A listing of derivative positions as at June 30, 2022 is included in "Supplemental Table 2" of this MD&A.

Realized other income

Realized other income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 primarily relates to amounts for funding under the Saskatchewan Accelerated Site Closure program to complete abandonment and reclamation on inactive oil and gas wells and facilities.
Net earnings

Fluctuations in net earnings from period-to-period are caused by changes in both cash and non-cash based income and charges. Cash based items are reflected in fund flows from operations. Non-cash items include: equity based compensation expense, unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, accretion, depletion and depreciation expense, and deferred taxes. In addition, non-cash items may also include gains resulting from business combinations or charges resulting from impairment or impairment reversals.

Equity based compensation

Equity based compensation expense relates primarily to non-cash compensation expense attributable to long-term incentives granted to directors, officers, and employees under security-based arrangements. Equity based compensation expense decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2022 versus the prior year comparable period primarily due to the lower value of VIP awards outstanding in the current period. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, equity based compensation expense increased primarily due to higher bonuses under the employee bonus plan in the current year.

Unrealized gain or loss on derivative instruments

Unrealized gain or loss on derivative instruments arises as a result of changes in forecasts for future prices and rates. As Vermilion uses derivative instruments to manage the commodity price exposure of our future crude oil and natural gas production, we will normally recognize unrealized gains on derivative instruments when future commodity price forecasts decline and vice-versa. As derivative instruments are settled, the unrealized gain or loss previously recognized is reversed, and the settlement results in a realized gain or loss on derivative instruments.

USD-to-CAD cross currency interest rate swaps and foreign exchange swaps may be entered into to hedge the foreign exchange movements on USD borrowings on our revolving credit facility. As such, unrealized gains and losses on our cross currency interest swaps are offset by unrealized losses and gains on foreign exchange relating to the underlying USD borrowings from our revolving credit facility.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, we recognized a net unrealized gain on derivative instruments of $168.1 million. This consists of unrealized gains of $109.5 million on our European natural gas commodity derivative instruments, $30.9 million on our crude oil commodity derivative instruments, $9.1 million on our North American natural gas commodity derivative instruments, and $25.2 million on our USD-to-CAD foreign exchange swaps, partially offset by unrealized losses of $6.6 million on our equity swaps.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we recognized a net unrealized loss on derivative instruments of $52.7 million. This consists of unrealized losses of $33.1 million on our European natural gas commodity derivative instruments, $31.8 million on our crude oil commodity derivative instruments, $8.1 million on our North American natural gas commodity derivative instruments, and $12.1 million on our USD-to-CAD foreign exchange swaps, partially offset by unrealized gains of $32.4 million on our equity swaps.

Unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses

As a result of Vermilion's international operations, Vermilion has monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the Canadian dollar. These monetary assets and liabilities include cash, receivables, payables, long-term debt, derivative instruments and intercompany loans. Unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses result from translating these monetary assets and liabilities from their underlying currency to the Canadian dollar.

In 2022, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses primarily resulted from:

The translation of Euro denominated intercompany loans from our international subsidiaries to Vermilion Energy Inc.. An appreciation in the Euro against the Canadian dollar will result in an unrealized foreign exchange loss (and vice-versa). Under IFRS, the offsetting foreign exchange loss or gain is recorded as a currency translation adjustment within other comprehensive income. As a result, consolidated comprehensive income reflects the offsetting of these translation adjustments while net earnings reflects only the parent company's side of the translation.
Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 30■ 2022 Second Quarter Report
The translation of USD borrowings on our revolving credit facility. The unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses on these borrowings are offset by unrealized derivative gains or losses on associated USD-to-CAD cross currency interest rate swaps (discussed further below).
The translation of our USD denominated senior unsecured notes prior to June 12, 2019 and from May 5, 2020 onward. During the period between June 12, 2019 and May 5, 2020 the USD senior notes were hedged by a USD-to-CAD cross currency interest rate swap. Subsequent to the termination of these instruments, amounts previously recognized in the hedge accounting reserve will be recognized into earnings through unrealized foreign exchange loss over the period of the hedged cash flows.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, we recognized a net unrealized foreign exchange loss of $32.3 million, driven by unrealized losses of $38.4 million on our USD borrowings from our revolving credit facility, as well as an unrealized loss of $15.1 million on our senior unsecured notes resulting from the US dollar strengthening 3.1% against the Canadian dollar in Q2 2022. This was partially offset by an unrealized gain of $23.3 million on intercompany loans due to the Euro weakening 2.8% against the Canadian dollar in Q2 2022.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we recognized a net unrealized foreign exchange gain of $7.9 million, driven by unrealized gains of $22.1 million on intercompany loans due to the Euro weakening 6.4% against the Canadian dollar in 2022. This was partially offset by an unrealized loss of $9.7 million on our senior unsecured notes resulting from the US dollar strengthening 1.6% against the Canadian dollar in 2022.

As at June 30, 2022, a $0.01 appreciation of the Euro against the Canadian dollar would result in a $4.8 million decrease to net earnings as a result of an unrealized loss on foreign exchange, while a $0.01 appreciation of the US dollar against the Canadian dollar would result in a $5.8 million decrease to net earnings as a result of an unrealized loss on foreign exchange.

Accretion

Accretion expense is recognized to update the present value of the asset retirement obligation balance. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, accretion expense increased versus the comparable period primarily due to the impact of a higher asset retirement obligation balance at the end of 2021 compared to 2020, partially offset by the weakening of the Euro against the Canadian dollar.

Depletion and depreciation

Depletion and depreciation expense is recognized to allocate the cost of capital assets over the useful life of the respective assets. Depletion and depreciation expense per unit of production is determined for each depletion unit (which are groups of assets within a specific production area that have similar economic lives) by dividing the sum of the net book value of capital assets and future development costs by total proved plus probable reserves.

Fluctuations in depletion and depreciation expense are primarily the result of changes in produced crude oil and natural gas volumes, and changes in depletion and depreciation per unit. Fluctuations in depletion and depreciation per unit are the result of changes in reserves, depletable base (net book value of capital assets and future development costs), and relative production mix.

Depletion and depreciation on a per boe basis for the three months ended June 30, 2022 of $18.28 decreased from $19.09 in the comparable prior year period primarily due to lower exploration and evaluation write-offs and downhole depreciation, as well as the weakening of the Euro against the Canadian dollar, partially offset by increased reserves depletion on a higher depletable base.

Depletion and depreciation on a per boe basis for the six months ended June 30, 2022 of $17.88 increased from $16.69 in the comparable prior year period primarily due to a higher depletable base on impairment reversals in Q1 2022 and throughout 2021, as well increases in asset retirement obligation assets recorded at the end of 2021.

Deferred tax

Deferred tax assets arise when the tax basis of an asset exceeds its accounting basis (known as a deductible temporary difference). Conversely, deferred tax liabilities arise when the tax basis of an asset is less than its accounting basis (known as a taxable temporary difference). Deferred tax assets are recognized only to the extent that it is probable that there are future taxable profits against which the deductible temporary difference can be utilized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the enacted or substantively enacted tax rate that is expected to apply when the asset is realized, or the liability is settled.

As such, fluctuations in deferred tax expenses and recoveries primarily arise as a result of: changes in the accounting basis of an asset or liability without a corresponding tax basis change (e.g. when derivative assets and liabilities are marked-to-market or when accounting depletion differs from tax depletion), changes in available tax losses (e.g. if they are utilized to offset taxable income), changes in estimated future taxable profits resulting in a derecognition or recognition of deferred tax assets, and changes in enacted or substantively enacted tax rates.

Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 31■ 2022 Second Quarter Report

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recorded a deferred tax expense of $63.5 million and $7.4 million compared to deferred tax expense of $63.5 million and $234.8 million for the prior year comparable periods. The deferred tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2022 is primarily due to the deferred tax impact on unrealized derivative movement, as well as the reduction of deductible temporary differences relating to asset retirement obligations. The deferred tax expense for the six months ended June 30, 2022 is comprised of the expense from the second quarter of 2022, partially offset by the recognition of non-expiring tax loss pools in Ireland in the first quarter of 2022.

Impairment

Impairment losses or reversals of losses are recognized when indicators of impairment or impairment reversal arise and the carrying amount of a cash generating unit ("CGU") is greater than (impairment) or less than (impairment reversal) its recoverable amount, determined as the higher of fair value less costs of disposal or value-in-use. In the second quarter of 2022 there were no indicators of impairment and no amounts relating to previous impairments remaining to be reversed.

In the first quarter of 2022, indicators of impairment reversal were present in our Canada - Saskatchewan and France - Neocomian CGUs due to an increase in forecast oil prices. As a result of the indicators of impairment reversal, the Company performed impairment reversal calculations on the identified CGUs and the recoverable amounts were determined using fair value less costs to sell, which considered future after-tax cash flows from proved plus probable reserves and an after-tax discount rate of 12.0%. Based on the results of the impairment reversal calculations completed, recoverable amounts were determined to be greater than the carrying values of the CGUs tested and $144.4 million (net of $47.7 million deferred income tax expense) of impairment reversal was recorded.

Inputs used in the measurement of capital assets are not based on observable market data and fall within level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

Financial Position Review

Balance sheet strategy

We regularly review whether our forecast of fund flows from operations is sufficient to finance planned capital expenditures, dividends, share buy-backs, and abandonment and reclamation expenditures. To the extent that fund flows from operations forecasts are not expected to be sufficient to fulfill such expenditures, we will evaluate our ability to finance any shortfall by reducing some or all categories of expenditures, with issuances of equity, and/or with debt (including borrowing using the unutilized capacity of our existing revolving credit facility). We have a long-term goal of achieving and maintaining a ratio of net debt to fund flows from operations of approximately 1.0.

As at June 30, 2022, we have a ratio of net debt to fund flows from operations of 1.1. We will continue to monitor for changes in forecasted fund flows from operations and, as appropriate, will adjust our exploration and development capital plans (and associated production targets) to target optimal debt levels.

Maintaining a strong balance sheet is a core principle of Vermilion and will remain a focus going forward. As debt reduction continues, we will plan to increase the amount of free cash flow that is available for Return of Capital, while taking into account other capital requirements. Based on current internal estimates, we anticipate allocating up to 25% of free cash flow in the second half of 2022 to Return of Capital.

Net debt

Net debt is reconciled to long-term debt, as follows:

As at
($M) Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021
Long-term debt 1,527,217 1,651,569
Adjusted working capital deficit (1) 65,394 9,284
Unrealized FX on swapped USD borrowings (3,943) (16,067)
Net debt 1,588,668 1,644,786
Ratio of net debt to four quarter trailing fund flows from operations 1.1 1.8
(1) Adjusted working capital is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not standardized under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other issuers. It is defined as current assets less current liabilities, excluding current derivatives and current lease liabilities. The measure is used to calculate net debt capital measure disclosed above. Reconciliation to primary financial statement measures can be found in the "Non-GAAP and Other Specified Financial Measures" section of this document.

As at June 30, 2022, net debt decreased slightly to $1.6 billion (December 31, 2021 - $1.6 billion), primarily as a result of debt repayments of $633.1 million, funded by the $644.3 million of free cash flow generated during 2022. This was partially offset by borrowings made to fund the Leucrotta acquisition and working capital movements. The ratio of net debt to four quarter trailing fund flows from operations decreased to 1.1 (December 31, 2021 - 1.8) due to higher four quarter trailing fund flows from operations, driven by strong commodity prices.

Long-term debt

The balances recognized on our balance sheet are as follows:

Revolving Credit Facility

As at June 30, 2022, Vermilion had in place a bank revolving credit facility maturing May 29, 2026 with terms and outstanding positions as follows:

As at
($M) Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021
Total facility amount 1,600,000 2,100,000
Amount drawn (639,927) (1,273,755)
Letters of credit outstanding (8,184) (11,035)
Unutilized capacity 951,889 815,210

On April 26, 2022, contemporaneous with the issuance of the 2030 senior unsecured notes and at Vermilion's election, the maturity date of the facility was extended to May 29, 2026 (previously May 31, 2024) and the total facility amount was reduced to $1.6 billion (previously $2.1 billion).

As at June 30, 2022, the revolving credit facility was subject to the following financial covenants:

As at
Financial covenant Limit Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021
Consolidated total debt to consolidated EBITDA Less than 4.0 0.93 1.61
Consolidated total senior debt to consolidated EBITDA Less than 3.5 0.39 1.24
Consolidated EBITDA to consolidated interest expense Greater than 2.5 24.50 14.78

Our financial covenants include financial measures defined within our revolving credit facility agreement that are not defined under IFRS. These financial measures are defined by our revolving credit facility agreement as follows:

Consolidated total debt: Includes all amounts classified as "Long-term debt", "Current portion of long-term debt", and "Lease obligations" (including the current portion included within "Accounts payable and accrued liabilities" but excluding operating leases as defined under IAS 17) on our consolidated balance sheet.
Consolidated total senior debt: Consolidated total debt excluding unsecured and subordinated debt.
Consolidated EBITDA: Consolidated net earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, accretion and certain other non-cash items, adjusted for the impact of the acquisition of a material subsidiary.
Total interest expense: Includes all amounts classified as "Interest expense", but excludes interest on operating leases as defined under IAS 17.

In addition, our revolving credit facility has provisions relating to our liability management ratings in Alberta and Saskatchewan whereby if our security adjusted liability management ratings fall below specified limits in a province, a portion of the asset retirement obligations are included in the definitions of consolidated total debt and consolidated total senior debt. An event of default occurs if our security adjusted liability management ratings breach additional lower limits for a period greater than 90 days. As of June 30, 2022, Vermilion's liability management ratings were higher than the specified levels, and as such, no amounts relating to asset retirement obligations were included in the calculation of consolidated total debt and consolidated total senior debt.

As at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, Vermilion was in compliance with the above covenants.

2025 senior unsecured notes

On March 13, 2017, Vermilion issued US $300.0 million of senior unsecured notes at par. The notes bear interest at a rate of 5.625% per annum, paid semi-annually on March 15 and September 15, and mature on March 15, 2025. As direct senior unsecured obligations of Vermilion, the notes rank equally in right of payment with existing and future senior indebtedness of the Company.

The senior unsecured notes were recognized at amortized cost and include the transaction costs directly related to the issuance.

Vermilion may redeem some or all of the senior unsecured notes at the redemption prices set forth in the following table plus any accrued and unpaid interest, if redeemed during the twelve-month period beginning on March 15 of each of the years indicated below:

Year Redemption price
2022 101.406 %
2023 and thereafter 100.000 %

2030 senior unsecured notes

On April 26, 2022, Vermilion closed a private offering of US $400.0 million 8-year senior unsecured notes. The notes were priced at 99.241% of par, mature on May 1, 2030, and bear interest at a rate of 6.875% per annum. Interest is to be paid semi-annually on May 1 and November 1, commencing on November 1, 2022. The notes are senior unsecured obligations of Vermilion and rank equally with existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness.

The senior unsecured notes were recognized at amortized cost and include the transaction costs directly related to the issuance.

Vermilion may, at its option, redeem the notes prior to maturity as follows:

On or after May 1, 2025, Vermilion may redeem some or all of the senior unsecured notes at the redemption prices set forth below, together with accrued and unpaid interest.
Prior to May 1, 2025, Vermilion may redeem up to 35% of the original principal amount of the notes with an amount of cash not greater than the net cash proceeds of certain equity offerings at a redemption price of 106.875% of the principal amount of the notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest.
Prior to May 1, 2025, Vermilion may also redeem some or all of the notes at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes, plus a "make-whole premium," together with applicable premium, accrued and unpaid interest.

The following table outlines our dividend payment history:

Date Frequency Dividend per unit or share
January 2003 to December 2007 Monthly $0.170
January 2008 to December 2012 Monthly $0.190
January 2013 to December 2013 Monthly $0.200
January 2014 to March 2018 Monthly $0.215
April 2018 to February 2020 Monthly $0.230
March 2020 Monthly $0.115
April 2022 to July 2022 Quarterly $0.060
August 2022 onwards Quarterly $0.080

In the first quarter of 2022, we announced our plan to distribute a fixed quarterly dividend due to stronger commodity prices and a strengthened balance sheet. In August 2022, we announced a 33% increase to our quarterly cash dividend effective for the Q3 2022 distribution.

The following table reconciles the change in shareholders' capital:

Shareholders' Capital Number of Shares ('000s) Amount ($M)
Balance at December 31, 2021 162,261 4,241,773
Vesting of equity based awards 2,270 41,193
Equity based compensation 526 13,123
Share-settled dividends on vested equity based awards 165 4,185
Balance at June 30, 2022 165,222 4,300,274

As at June 30, 2022, there were approximately 5.8 million equity based compensation awards outstanding. As at August 11, 2022, there were approximately 164.0 million common shares issued and outstanding.

On July 4, 2022, the Toronto Stock Exchange approved our notice of intention to commence a normal course issuer bid ("the NCIB"). The NCIB allows Vermilion to purchase up to 16,076,666 common shares (representing approximately 10% of outstanding common shares) beginning July 6, 2022 and ending July 5, 2023. Common shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of 2022, Vermilion purchased 1.25 million common shares under the NCIB for total consideration of $35.0 million. The common shares purchased under the NCIB were cancelled.

Asset Retirement Obligations

As at June 30, 2022, asset retirement obligations were $721.2 million compared to $1,000.6 million as at December 31, 2021. The decrease in asset retirement obligations is primarily attributable to increases in country-specific risk-free rates and an increase in the credit-adjusted risk-free rate from 4.9% at December 31, 2021 to 5.7% at June 30, 2022, partially offset by the Euro weakening against the Canadian dollar.

The present value of the obligation is calculated using a credit-adjusted risk-free rate, calculated using a credit spread added to risk-free rates based on long-term, risk-free government bonds. Vermilion's credit spread is determined using the Company's expected cost of borrowing at the end of the reporting period.

The risk-free rates and credit spread used as inputs to discount the obligations were as follows:

Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021 Change
Credit spread added to below noted risk-free rates 5.7 % 4.9 % 0.8 %
Country specific risk-free rate
Canada 3.2 % 1.8 % 1.4 %
United States 3.3 % 1.9 % 1.4 %
France 2.4 % 0.8 % 1.6 %
Netherlands 1.3 % (0.3) % 1.6 %
Germany 1.6 % 0.1 % 1.5 %
Ireland 2.2 % 0.5 % 1.7 %
Australia 3.8 % 1.9 % 1.9 %

Risks and Uncertainties

Vermilion is exposed to various market and operational risks. For a discussion of these risks, please see Vermilion's MD&A and Annual Information Form, each for the year ended December 31, 2021 available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or on Vermilion's website at www.vermilionenergy.com.

Critical Accounting Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect reported assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, gains and losses, and disclosures of any possible contingencies. These estimates and assumptions are developed based on the best available information which management believed to be reasonable at the time such estimates and assumptions were made. As such, these assumptions are uncertain at the time estimates are made and could change, resulting in a material impact on Vermilion's consolidated financial statements. Estimates are reviewed by management on an ongoing basis and as a result may change from period to period due to the availability of new information or changes in circumstances. Additionally, as a result of the unique circumstances of each jurisdiction that Vermilion operates in, the critical accounting estimates may affect one or more jurisdictions. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting estimates used in applying accounting policies for the six months ended June 30, 2022. Further information, including a discussion of critical accounting estimates, can be found in the notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements and annual MD&A for the year ended December 31, 2021, available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or on Vermilion's website at www.vermilionenergy.com.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any guarantee or off balance sheet arrangements that would materially impact our financial position or results of operations.

Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There has been no change in Vermilion's internal control over financial reporting ("ICFR") during the period covered by this MD&A that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Vermilion has limited the scope of design controls and procedures ("DC&P") and internal controls over financial reporting to exclude controls, policies

and procedures of Leucrotta Exploration Inc., which was acquired on May 31, 2022. The scope limitation is in accordance with section 3.3(1)(b) of NI 52-109 which allows an issuer to limit the design of DC&P and ICFR to exclude controls, policies, and procedures of a business that the issuer acquired not more than 365 days before the end of the fiscal period.

The table below presents the summary financial information of Leucrotta Exploration Inc. included in Vermilion's financial statements as at and for the six months ended June 30, 2022:

($M) As at June 30, 2022
Non-current assets 610,322
Non-current liabilities 99,331
Net assets 505,194
($M) For the six months ended June 30, 2022
Revenue 9,919
Net earnings 5,667

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Vermilion did not adopt any new accounting pronouncements as at June 30, 2022.

Our officers have established and maintained disclosure controls and procedures and evaluated the effectiveness of these controls in conjunction with our filings.

As of June 30, 2022, we have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on this evaluation, the President, for this specific purpose of acting in the capacity of Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Financial Officer have concluded and certified that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

(1) Under National Instrument 51-101 "Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities", disclosure of production volumes should include segmentation by product type as defined in the instrument. This table provides a reconciliation from "crude oil and condensate", "NGLs" and "natural gas" to the product types. In this report, references to "crude oil" and "light and medium crude oil" mean "light crude oil and medium crude oil" and references to "natural gas" mean "conventional natural gas". Production volumes reported are based on quantities as measured at the first point of sale.

Non-GAAP and Other Specified Financial Measures

This MD&A includes references to certain financial measures which do not have standardized meanings and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. These financial measures include fund flows from operations, a total of segments measure of profit or loss in accordance with IFRS 8 "Operating Segments" (please see Segmented Information in the Notes to the condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements) and net debt, a capital management measure in accordance with IAS 1 "Presentation of Financial Statements" (please see Capital Disclosures in the Notes to the condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements).

In addition, this MD&A includes financial measures which are not specified, defined, or determined under IFRS and are therefore considered non-GAAP financial measures and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. These non-GAAP financial measures include:

Acquisitions: The sum of acquisitions from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, Vermilion common shares issued as consideration, the estimated value of contingent consideration, the amount of acquiree's outstanding long-term debt assumed plus or net of acquired working capital deficit or surplus. We believe that including these components provides a useful measure of the economic investment associated with our acquisition activity. A reconciliation to the acquisitions line item in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows can be found in Supplemental Table 3 of this MD&A.

Capital expenditures: A non-GAAP financial measure calculated as the sum of drilling and development costs and exploration and evaluation costs from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows that is most directly comparable to cash flows used in investing activities. We consider capital expenditures to be a useful measure of our investment in our existing asset base. Capital expenditures are also referred to as E&D capital. Reconciliation to primary financial statement measures can be found below.

Capital expenditures 113,153 79,176 198,497 162,539

Cash dividends per share: A supplementary financial measure that represents cash dividends declared per share that is a useful measure of the dividends a common shareholder was entitled to during the period.

Covenants: The financial covenants on our revolving credit facility contain non-GAAP measures. The definitions for these financial covenants are included in Financial Position Review.

Diluted shares outstanding: The sum of shares outstanding at the period end plus outstanding awards under the VIP, based on current estimates of future performance factors and forfeiture rates.

('000s of shares) Q2 2022 Q2 2021
Shares outstanding 165,222 161,893
Potential shares issuable pursuant to the VIP 5,747 7,010
Diluted shares outstanding 170,969 168,903

Fund flows from operations: A total of segments measure most directly comparable to net earnings. FFO is comprised of sales excluding royalties, transportation, operating, G&A, corporate income tax, PRRT, interest expense, realized loss on derivatives, realized foreign exchange gain (loss), and realized other income. The measure is used to assess the contribution of each business unit to Vermilion's ability to generate income necessary to pay dividends, repay debt, fund asset retirement obligations and make capital investments. Reconciliation to primary financial statement measures can be found below.

Fund flows from operations per basic and diluted share: A supplementary financial measure, management assesses fund flows from operations on a per share basis as we believe this provides a measure of our operating performance after taking into account the issuance and potential future issuance of Vermilion common shares. Fund flows from operations per basic share is calculated by dividing fund flows from operations (total of segments measure) by the basic weighted average shares outstanding as defined under IFRS. Fund flows from operations per diluted share is calculated by dividing fund flows from operations by the sum of basic weighted average shares outstanding and incremental shares issuable under the equity based compensation plans as determined using the treasury stock method.

Net debt: A capital management measure in accordance with IAS 1 "Presentation of Financial Statements" that is most directly comparable to long-term debt. Net debt is comprised of long-term debt (excluding unrealized foreign exchange on swapped USD borrowings) plus adjusted working capital (defined as current assets less current liabilities, excluding current derivatives and current lease liabilities), and represents Vermilion's net financing obligations after adjusting for the timing of working capital fluctuations. Net debt excludes lease obligations which are secured by a corresponding right-of-use asset.

Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 48■ 2022 Second Quarter Report

Net debt to four quarter trailing fund flows from operations: A supplementary financial measure that is calculated as net debt (capital measure) over the FFO (total of segments measure) from the preceding four quarters. The measure is used to assess the ability to repay debt.

Adjusted working capital: A non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, defined as current assets less current liabilities, excluding current derivatives and current lease liabilities. The measure is used to calculate net debt, a capital measure disclosed above.

Operating netback: A supplementary financial measure most directly comparable to net earnings that is calculated as sales less royalties, operating expense, transportation costs, PRRT, and realized hedging gains and losses presented on a per unit basis. Management assesses operating netback as a measure of the profitability and efficiency of our field operations.

Fund flows from operations per boe: A supplementary financial measure calculated as FFO by boe production. Fund flows from operations netback is used by management to assess the profitability of our business units and Vermilion as a whole.

Payout and payout % of FFO: A non-GAAP financial measure and non-GAAP ratio respectively, most directly comparable to dividends declared. Payout is comprised of dividends declared plus drilling and development costs, exploration and evaluation costs, and asset retirement obligations settled, and payout % of FFO is calculated as payout over FFO . The measure is used to assess the amount of cash distributed back to shareholders and reinvested in the business for maintaining production and organic growth. The reconciliation of the measure to primary financial statement measure can be found below.

Return on capital employed (ROCE): A non-GAAP ratio, ROCE is a measure that we use to analyze our profitability and the efficiency of our capital allocation process; the comparable primary financial statement measure is earnings before income taxes. ROCE is calculated by dividing net earnings before interest and taxes ("EBIT") by average capital employed over the preceding twelve months. Capital employed is calculated as total assets less current liabilities while average capital employed is calculated using the balance sheets at the beginning and end of the twelve-month period.

Description of equity reserves

Shareholders' capital

Represents the recognized amount for common shares when issued, net of equity issuance costs and deferred taxes.

Contributed surplus

Represents the recognized value of unvested equity based awards that will be settled in shares. Once vested, the value of the awards are transferred to shareholders' capital.

Accumulated other comprehensive income

Represents currency translation adjustments, hedge accounting reserve and fair value adjustments on investments.

Currency translation adjustments result from translating the balance sheets of subsidiaries with a foreign functional currency to Canadian dollars at period-end rates. These amounts may be reclassified to net earnings if there is a disposal or partial disposal of a subsidiary.

The hedge accounting reserve represents the effective portion of the change in fair value related to cash flow and net investment hedges recognized in other comprehensive income, net of tax and reclassified to the consolidated statement of net earnings in the same period in which the transaction associated with the hedged item occurs. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, accumulated losses of $2.5 million and $0.8 million were recognized in the consolidated statement of net earnings on the cash flow hedges and net investment hedges, respectively, and will be recognized in net earnings through 2025 when the senior unsecured notes mature.

Fair value adjustment on investment in securities, net of tax, are a result of changes in the fair value of investments that have been elected to be subsequently measured at fair value through other comprehensive income.

Deficit

Represents the cumulative net earnings less distributed earnings of Vermilion Energy Inc.

3. Business combinations

Leucrotta Exploration Inc.

On May 31, 2022, Vermilion closed the acquisition of all outstanding common shares of Leucrotta Exploration Inc. ("Leucrotta"), a Canadian publicly listed, Montney-focused oil and natural gas exploration and development company. The primary asset acquired is the Mica property, comprised of 81,000 gross (77,000 net) contiguous acres of Montney mineral rights in the Peace River Arch straddling the Alberta and British Columbia borders.

Prior to May 31, 2022, Vermilion controlled 7,536,800 common shares of Leucrotta. On May 31, 2022, Vermilion transferred consideration and assumed ownership of all remaining outstanding common shares of Leucrotta. The acquisition was funded through Vermilion's revolving credit facility.

The total consideration and the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of acquisition are detailed in the table below:

Consideration
Cash consideration paid 486,488
Fair value of previously held equity interest 13,039
Total consideration 499,527
Allocation of consideration
Cash acquired 2,659
Capital assets 559,094
Exploration and evaluation assets 43,227
Deferred tax liabilities (97,891)
Asset retirement obligations (1,440)
Derivative liability (339)
Acquired working capital deficiency (5,783)
Net assets acquired 499,527

The results of operations from the assets acquired and liabilities assumed have been included in Vermilion's consolidated financial statements beginning May 31, 2022 and have contributed revenues of $7.1 million and net earnings of $2.4 million. Had the acquisition occurred on January 1, 2022, consolidated revenues would have been $1,654.8 million and consolidated net earnings would have been $655.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022.

4. Investment in securities

Concurrent with the closing of the purchase of Leucrotta, Vermilion acquired shares of Coelacanth Energy Inc. ("Coelacanth") via private placement. Vermilion has made an optional election to subsequently measure the investment at fair value through other comprehensive income. The investment is classified as a level 1 instrument on the fair value hierarchy and therefore uses observable inputs when making fair value adjustments.

The total consideration paid and the fair value of the investment acquired are detailed in the table below:

Amount
Balance at January 1 -
Acquisition of securities 18,301
Fair value adjustment 19,795
Balance at June 30 38,096

In the first quarter of 2022, indicators of impairment reversal were present in our Canada - Saskatchewan and France - Neocomian cash generating units ("CGUs") due to an increase and stabilization in forecast oil prices. As a result of the indicators of impairment reversal, the Company performed impairment reversal calculations on the identified CGUs and the recoverable amounts were determined using fair value less costs to sell, which considered future after-tax cash flows from proved plus probable reserves and an after-tax discount rate of 12.0%. Based on the results of the impairment reversal calculations completed, recoverable amounts were determined to be greater than the carrying values of the CGUs tested and $144.4 million (net of $47.7 million deferred income tax expense) of impairment reversal was recorded. Inputs used in the measurement of capital assets are not based on observable market data and fall within level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

The following benchmark price forecasts were used to calculate the recoverable amounts:

2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 2029 2030 2031 (2)
Brent Crude ($ US/bbl) (1) 100.50 89.50 79.64 81.23 82.86 84.51 86.21 87.94 89.69 91.48

Exchange rate (CAD/USD) 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80 0.80

(1) The forecast benchmark prices listed are adjusted for quality differentials, heat content, transportation and marketing costs and other factors specific to the Company's operations when determining recoverable amounts.

(2) In 2032 and beyond, commodity price forecasts are inflated at a rate of 2.0% per annum. In 2032 and beyond there is no escalation of exchange rates.

8. Capital disclosures

Vermilion defines capital as net debt (long-term debt (excluding unrealized foreign exchange on swapped USD borrowings) plus adjusted working capital (defined as current assets less current liabilities, excluding current derivatives and current lease liabilities)) and shareholders' capital.

The following table calculates Vermilion's ratio of net debt to four quarter trailing fund flows from operations:

Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021
Long-term debt 1,527,217 1,651,569

As at
Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021

Vermilion Energy Inc. ■ Page 60■ 2022 Second Quarter Report

The facility can be extended from time to time at the option of the lenders and upon notice from Vermilion. If no extension is granted by the lenders, the amounts owing pursuant to the facility are due at the maturity date. The facility is secured by various fixed and floating charges against the subsidiaries of Vermilion. On April 26, 2022, contemporaneous with the issuance of the 2030 senior unsecured notes and at Vermilion's election, the maturity date of the facility was extended to May 29, 2026 (previously May 31, 2024) and the total facility amount was reduced to $1.6 billion (previously $2.1 billion).

The facility bears interest at a rate applicable to demand loans plus applicable margins.

As at June 30, 2022, the revolving credit facility was subject to the following financial covenants:

As at
Financial covenant Limit Jun 30, 2022 Dec 31, 2021
Consolidated total debt to consolidated EBITDA Less than 4.0 0.93 1.61
Consolidated total senior debt to consolidated EBITDA Less than 3.5 0.39 1.24
Consolidated EBITDA to consolidated interest expense Greater than 2.5 24.50 14.78

The financial covenants include financial measures defined within the revolving credit facility agreement that are not defined under IFRS. These financial measures are defined by the revolving credit facility agreement as follows:

Consolidated total debt: Includes all amounts classified as "Long-term debt" and "Lease obligations" (including the current portion included within "Accounts payable and accrued liabilities" but excluding operating leases as defined under IAS 17) on the consolidated balance sheet.
Consolidated total senior debt: Consolidated total debt excluding unsecured and subordinated debt.
Consolidated EBITDA: Consolidated net earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, accretion and certain other non-cash items, adjusted for the impact of the acquisition of a material subsidiary.
Consolidated total interest expense: Includes all amounts classified as "Interest expense", but excludes interest on operating leases as defined under IAS 17.

In addition, our revolving credit facility has provisions relating to our liability management ratings in Alberta and Saskatchewan whereby if our security adjusted liability management ratings fall below specified limits in a province, a portion of the asset retirement obligations are included in the definitions of consolidated total debt and consolidated total senior debt. An event of default occurs if our security adjusted liability management ratings breach additional lower limits for a period greater than 90 days. As of June 30, 2022, Vermilion's liability management ratings were higher than the specified levels, and as such, no amounts relating to asset retirement obligations were included in the calculation of consolidated total debt and consolidated total senior debt.

As at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, Vermilion was in compliance with the above covenants.
