Touchstone Exploration Inc (LON:TXP) told investors that production in the first quarter averaged 2,121 barrels per day.

The Trinidad focused company, in its quarterly results, reported US$11.01mln of realised petroleum sales marking a 34% increase from 2018’s first quarter. It generated US$29.35 per barrel, an 11% increase in the operating netback.

WATCH: Touchstone Exploration gearing up to spud first Ortoire well in June

It brought in US$2.43mln of funds from operations, while in its financial results it recognized a net loss of US$185,000 reflecting increases in supplemental petroleum tax expenses.

In April, production averaged 1,789 bopd with the decline due partially to natural decline and downtime for two higher productive wells.

The company is also presently preparing for an exploration programme, at the Ortoire project.

It is expected that a well will be spudded in June, subject to rig availability, and, another well is planned to follow using the same rig.
