30 September 2019

("President", "the Company" or "the Group")

President (AIM:PPC), the oil and gas upstream company with a diverse portfolio of production and exploration assets focused primarily in Argentina, announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2019.

 

Commenting on today's announcement, Peter Levine, Chairman said:

 

"President continues with its business in a focussed, calm, determined and confident way.

"Despite an unforeseen confluence of challenges this year, we have in H1 2019 delivered demonstrable improvements in all our key performance indicators over the same period last year. 

"In this context, this solid set of results and continuing profitable operations are a reflection of the strength of President and its assets and a stark contrast to the disconnected share price performance of late."

Group Summary

Highlights

·      Group turnover increased by 6.4% over the same period last year to US$23.3 million despite realisation prices on average approximately 11% lower 

·      Adjusted EBITDA* up 29% from H1 2018 to nearly US$8 million

·      Free cash flow from core operations increased by 11.4% year on year to US$9.7 million

·      Net Group average production up 19.3% from same period 2018 at 2,461 boepd, notwithstanding operational challenges during the period. The approximate split across our assets was: Rio Negro 76%, Salta 17% and Louisiana 7% with gas representing less than 5% of the total

·      Group administration expenses per boe fell by 12.7% to US$6.4 per boe over H1 2018

 

Outlook

·      President views the outlook for the Company positively and with confidence.

·      Whilst the macro circumstances in Argentina have been volatile of late, there have been early signs that stability is returning. Furthermore, we are comforted by the fact that all Presidential candidates acknowledge that the domestic hydrocarbon industry needs continued investment with satisfactory returns for investors and remains key to the future prosperity of Argentina.

·      Current net Group production is 2,422 boepd with a further 250 boepd due to be brought online from Rio Negro in October. The Rio Negro assets are contributing the lions share at approximately 79%, followed by Salta at 18% and the balance representing reduced production from Louisiana. Of the total still less than 5% represents gas though this will now start to increase in October as gas production starts to come online with the first Estancia Vieja gas sales.

·    The Company remains operationally profitable, free cash flow generative at field level with, in Argentina, unaudited operational profits in the first three months of H2 still projected to be some US$3.5 million on a reduced level of G&A compared with the prior three months.

·      The next four or so months will see continued growth for the Group as President develops a more balanced portfolio including profitable, low cost gas developments which we expect, all factors being equal, to deliver from our existing well stock an additional ca. 1,850 boepd in spring 2020.

·      Net Group average production for the full year 2019 is now projected to be ca. 2,600 boepd, up 13.5% year on year (2018: 2,279 boepd), with the benefits of the substantially increased gas production only being felt from the end of the year once the building of the enlarged pipeline between Puesto Prado and Las Bases is completed.

·      Internal projections for 2020 therefore show a materially increased average in the range 4-5,000 boepd with a significantly increased proportion of gas all from our Rio Negro assets rising from less than 5% currently to some 30% of the next year.

 

* Adjusted EBITDA means Operating Profit before depreciation, depletion and amortisation, adjusted for non-cash share based expenses and certain non-recurring items. Non-recurring items include workovers, one off legal expenses in 2018 and a discretionary staff bonus award in 2019.

Chairman's Statement

Summary

The first half of 2019 saw a noticeable improvement compared to what was itself a significantly improved H1 2018 in all the Group's key performance indicators including turnover, adjusted EBITDA and production costs.

Such solid year on year results were delivered notwithstanding an unforeseen combination of challenging headwinds producing a deluge of adverse events beyond President's control, affecting both Argentina and Louisiana. These included:

·      In Argentina, a series of down-hole issues affecting some of the high impact production wells and electrical outages impacting average field performances in our core Puesto Flores field on top of natural declines; and

·      in Louisiana, unprecedented levels of flooding resulting in the shutting-in of the entire production from all wells there for some three months which straddled the period under review as well as the first part of H2.

In total 10 workovers at the main Puesto Flores field were completed in the period with the objective of stemming both the expected and unexpected losses in production and to make production less reliant on the relatively few high impact wells in the core Rio Negro province. Whilst these met with mixed success, the learnings were very valuable and the work was beginning to show positive signs towards the end of the first half which has now continued into H2 2019. The frac conducted in well PF0-16 has proved successful with production still double the pre-frac level. Further fracs will be effected in the field in due course and studies continue in this regard.

In other work, the Puesto Prado field and associated facilities were recommissioned and placed into operation and the Las Bases gas facilities were successfully tested and further detailed sub-surface studies were conducted in relation to the Paraguay exploration areas.

Post period, a further eight workovers have been completed at the Company's fields in the Rio Negro Province with work currently continuing at the Puesto Flores field. The Estancia Vieja field and necessary facilities have now also been brought back into production after some eight years lying idle. Gas sales from that field will commence shortly. Elsewhere in Argentina, the Puesto Guardian field production remains stable.

Work has now also started on the building, completion and commissioning of a brand new 16 km section of 6" steel pipeline to be laid between Puesto Prado and Las Bases, replacing the limited capacity 3" flexible pipeline between those points. This will enable the significant increase in gas sales in the new year with a projected additional 1,850 boepd in spring 2020.

The Presidential elections are due to take place in Argentina on 27 October 2019. On 11 August 2019 the primary elections took place, the result of which saw the Peronist Frente de Todos party securing 47.65% of the electoral vote; a 15.57% margin over the Macri administration. This result was not anticipated by the investing community and global markets with a significant fall occurring in both the Merval index and US Dollar:Peso exchange rate following the announcement. This was likewise reflected in the sharp and, in our view, overdone drop in the Company's share price.  Such a fall, at least in the currency, has to a certain extent corrected and the peso has strengthened from a low of over 63 to the Dollar to approximately 57 currently.

In an aim to reduce pressure on consumers in the short-term, the Government passed a Decree on 16 August 2019 which fixed the crude oil and gasoline prices for 90 days (to mid-November). The original Decree set a Brent reference price of US$59/bbl and a US Dollar:Peso exchange rate of 45.19. Following pressure from Provinces, unions and producers, this fixed exchange rate has now been increased via a series of decrees to the present level of 49.30 pesos to the Dollar; there is media speculation that further positive adjustments will follow although nothing concrete can be said at this stage.

With the US Dollar:Peso exchange rate currently fixed at 49.30, being lower than the current rate of exchange the original Decree as amended, has had and is having an impact on the Company due to the fact that all domestic oil sales contracts are paid in Pesos. Accordingly realised sales revenues in H2 will be lower than expected at the start of this year. This decline has however been partially offset by lower Peso denominated costs.

It remains difficult to forecast where the domestic oil price for producers will land after the end of the temporary restrictions in November (if they are at that stage still in place) as well as the future of the temporary exchange control issues brought in recently. Nevertheless, there is a cautious but increasing and welcome air of realism and understanding from both the major political parties as to the importance to Argentina of its hydrocarbon industry, specifically the need for it to continue to be attractive for investors. Whatever happens, President's laser focus on delivery, margins and cash management means its stress tested business model remains solid and robust.

In Louisiana, the wells have now been placed back in production after an extensive workover of the highest producing Triche well due to lower oil and gas and higher water flow. This and the historic flooding led to production in the period falling by 42.2%. After the workover, the Triche well, which is considered to be still cleaning up, is at present delivering reduced production compared to pre flood levels. This is down from 260 bopd gross at the start of the year to some 55 bopd gross currently with a similar reduction in gas sales. Whilst remaining profitable at these reduced levels, President is monitoring progress at the Triche well after its long shut-down and workover period and considering future action and strategy regarding these non-core and non-material assets. The Company is scheduled to start drilling in Q4 2019 at Jefferson Island, where it has a 20% operated interest.

It remains to extend the Director's appreciation to our management and staff, our shareholders, our partners, EDHIPSA and all the Government, Provincial and Regulatory authorities wherever we conduct business for their continued support.

 

 Financial

·      Group turnover in H1 2019 increased by 6.4% to US$23.3 million against the same period in 2018. This is in spite of lower realised prices (approximately 11% lower on average year on year and 12% less than the last half of 2018) as well as production losses suffered in both Argentina and Louisiana.

·      Adjusted EBITDA for the period increased by 29% over the same period last year to nearly US$8 million.

·      Free cash from core operations increased by 11.4% year on year to US$9.7 million.

·      Net Group average production in the H1 period increased by 19.3% over same period last year to 2,461 boepd notwithstanding the issues referred to above. This was approximately split between Rio Negro assets 76%, Salta 17% and Louisiana 7% with gas representing less than 5% of the total

·      Group well operating costs per boe (excluding royalties and production taxes) fell by 15% over the previous year to US$19.9 per boe.

·      Group administration expenses per boe fell by 12.7% to US$6.4 per boe over the same period in 2018.

·      In the first part of H1 2019 the Company raised US$4.1 million net after expenses by way of a placing of shares at 8p per share.

·      The Company remains operationally profitable, free cash flow generative at field level with operational profits for the first three months of H2 in Argentina still projected, taking into account reduced realisation prices, to be approximately US$3.5 million on a reduced level of G&A compared with the previous three months.

·      Accordingly, whilst the results for the whole of H2 2019 are not currently projected to materially improve upon the levels for the same period in 2018, the present period is expected to be operationally profitable on a month by month basis with progress on a number of fronts including gas production.

 

 

 Argentina

·      The 10 well workovers completed in the period in the Puesto Flores field partially mitigated both natural declines, disruptions to productions and unexpected issues in high impact oil producing wells. Another three to four workovers will be carried out by the end of H2 2019.

·      Both the Puesto Prado and Las Bases Concessions together with the strategic pan-regional pipeline were integrated into the Group and both fields are contributing to production.

·      As previously advised, whilst the current economic and political volatility in Argentina prevails, we have deferred this year's drilling campaign in favour of greater near term emphasis on progressing and expanding our existing gas project. It is now anticipated well drilling will commence in H1 2020 with an initial emphasis on new gas wells.

·      Initial gas sales from Estancia Vieja will commence shortly; the sales will then ramp up significantly once the new section of pipeline is completed towards the end of this year.

 

Paraguay

·      The farm-out process in Paraguay also continues without at this stage any material developments.

·      Extensive sub-surface work was carried out in the period under review to identify drilling locations for the first well and volumetrics. A brief summary presentation of part of such work issued in June 2019 can be found on the Company's website www.presidentenergypc.com. The work re-validates the prospectivity of the Pirity block and in particular the mean oil in place estimations for the initial Delray complex targets which are over 220 million barrels of oil.

·      It remains the intention that exploration drilling will commence in 2020. Further details in relation to timing will be given before the end of this year.

 

Louisiana

·      Louisiana continues to contribute production, profits and cash to President, albeit substantially less than last year due to the above referred to factors.

·      Net production to President is currently approximately 75 boepd, solely due to the reduced performance of the Triche well. This gives a projected monthly cash contribution back to the UK of approximately US$50,000 cash at present oil prices.

·      USA average realised oil prices decreased in period by 10% to US$58.5 per barrel and are currently realising around US$60 per barrel.

 

Outlook

·      President views the outlook for the Company positively and with confidence.

·      Whilst the macro circumstances in Argentina have been volatile of late, there have been early signs that stability is returning. Furthermore, we are comforted by the fact that all Presidential candidates acknowledge that the domestic hydrocarbon industry needs continued investment with satisfactory returns for investors and remains key to the future prosperity of Argentina.

·      Current net Group production is 2,422 boepd with a further 250 boepd due to be brought online from Rio Negro in October. The Rio Negro assets are contributing the lions share at approximately 79%, followed by Salta at 18% and the balance representing reduced production from Louisiana. Of the total still less than 5% represents gas though this will now start to increase in October as gas production starts to come online with the first Estancia Vieja gas sales.

·      The Company remains operationally profitable, free cash flow generative at field level with, in Argentina, unaudited operational profits in the first three months of H2 still projected to be some US$3.5 million on a reduced level of G&A compared with the prior three months.

·      The next four or so months will see continued growth for the Group as President develops a more balanced portfolio including profitable, low cost gas developments which we expect, all factors being equal, to deliver from our existing well stock an additional ca. 1,850 boepd in spring 2020.

·      Net Group average production for the full year 2019 is now projected to be ca. 2,600 boepd, up 13.5% year on year (2018: 2,279 boepd), with the benefits of the substantially increased gas production only being felt from the end of the year once the building of the enlarged pipeline between Puesto Prado and Las Bases is completed.

·      Internal projections for 2020 therefore show a materially increased average in the range 4-5,000 boepd with a significantly increased proportion of gas all from our Rio Negro assets rising from less than 5% currently to some 30% of the next year.

Notes to the Half-Yearly Financial Statements

Six months ended 30 June 2019

 

1 Nature of operations and general information

President Energy PLC and its subsidiaries' (together "the Group") principal activities are the exploration for and the evaluation and production of oil and gas.

 

President Energy PLC is the Group's ultimate parent company. It is incorporated and domiciled in England. The Group has onshore oil and gas production and reserves in Argentina and the USA. The Group also has onshore exploration assets in Paraguay and Argentina. The address of President Energy PLC's registered office is 1200 Century Way, Thorpe Park Business Park, Leeds LS15 8ZA. President Energy PLC's shares are listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange.

 

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements (the interim financial statements) have been approved for issue by the Board of Directors on 30th September 2019. The financial information for the year ended 31 December 2017 set out in this interim report does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in Section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. The financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2019 and 30 June 2018 was neither audited nor reviewed by the auditor. The Group's statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018 have been filed with the Registrar of Companies. The auditor's report on those financial statements was unqualified and did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis and did not contain a statement under section 498(2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006

 

2 Basis of preparation

The interim financial statements do not include all of the information required for full annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of the Group for the year ended 31 December 2018, which have been prepared under IFRS as adopted by the European Union.

 

These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention, except for any derivative financial instruments which have been measured at fair value. The accounting policies adopted in the 2019 interim financial statements are the same as those adopted in the 2018 Annual report and accounts other than for the implementation of the new International Financial Reporting Standard 16 on Leases. The Group implemented IFRS 16 on Leases effective from 1 January 2019 and further details are provided in note 13.

 

The Directors consider the Group as a going concern on the basis of its financial performance and support it receives from‎ its principal funder IYA.  Furthermore, the Directors consider that issues surrounding Brexit will have no material effect on the Group.

No impairment indicators were noted at 31 December 2018 or existed at that balance sheet date.  Subsequent to year end there has been increasing volatility and falls in the Merval index and US Dollar: Peso exchange rate following the announcement.  In an aim to reduce pressure on consumers in the short-term, the government passed a decree on 16 August 2019 which fixes the crude oil and gasoline prices for 90 days. The decree sets a Brent reference price of US$59/bbl and also set an exchange rate that would apply.  These are short term developments subsequent to the year end that, at today's date, do not indicate a long term issue to the investment values held but will continue to be monitored by the Directors

13 Adoption of new IFRS16 lease accounting standard

The Group adopted IFRS 16 Leases, which sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases, for the period commencing 1 January 2019. On adoption of IFRS 16, the Group recognised lease liabilities in relation to leases which were previously classified as operating leases under the provisions of IAS 17 Leases. The Group has identified leases predominantly for oil and gas production equipment but also for property and transportation equipment.

 

In calculating the present value of lease payments, the Group uses its incremental borrowing rate at the lease commencement date if the interest rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable. The discount rates used on transition are the incremental borrowing rates as appropriate for each lease based on factors such as the lessee legal entity and lease term. The incremental borrowing rate applicable for all of the leases for the Group is between 5.0% and 14.9%. The determination of whether there is an interest rate implicit in the lease, the calculation of the Group's incremental borrowing rate, and whether any adjustments to this rate are required, involves some judgement and is subject to change over time. At the commencement date of leases management consider whether the lease term will be the full term of the lease or whether any option to break or extend the lease is likely to be exercised. Leases are regularly reviewed and will be revalued if the term is likely to change.

 

In accordance with the transition provisions in IFRS 16, the modified retrospective approach has been adopted with the cumulative effect of initially applying the new standard recognised on 1 January 2019. Comparatives for the 2018 financial year have not been restated. The financial impact of transition to IFRS 16 for the first half of financial year 2019 has been summarised below. The Group has elected to use the recognition exemptions for lease contracts that, at the commencement date, have a lease term of 12 months or less and do not contain a purchase option, and lease contracts for which the underlying asset is of low value ('low-value assets'). The Group recognises lease expenses for these contracts on a straight-line basis as permitted by IFRS 16. Lease liabilities related to operated Joint Ventures are disclosed gross with the debit representing the partner's share disclosed in amounts due from Joint Venture Partners.
