CORRECTING and REPLACING – Bonanza Creek Energy Announces Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results and Operational Update

DENVER, Nov. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a release issued under the same headline earlier today by Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (NYSE:BCEI), please note that in the paragraph directly below Production, Capital, and Expense Outlook, the mid-point should be 15.8 MBoe, not 16.0 MBoe as previously stated. The corrected release follows:

  • Production from enhanced completions is outperforming offset wells by ~40%
  • Expecting ~15% reductions to annualized LOE and midstream operating expense
  • Improved drilling cycle times with record spud-to-total depth of 3.4 days for a 4,100' lateral
  • Third quarter production volumes averaged 15.8 MBoe per day

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (NYSE:BCEI) (the "Company" or "Bonanza Creek") today announces its third quarter 2017 financial results and operating outlook and has posted an updated investor presentation on its corporate website.

Seth Bullock, Interim CEO commented, "Our third quarter operations program was very encouraging with great production results from our enhanced completions and record drill times on SRL wells drilled during the quarter. I am pleased to announce that initial results from our enhanced completion program are significantly out-pacing offset wells that used the previous completion design. These increased production results along with the significant structural cost reductions that have been identified and implemented this year are laying the ground work for a strong 2018. I am confident that this reorganized Company is successfully shaping a culture that pursues continuous improvement and maximizes returns for its shareholders."

Operational Highlights

Production Results from Enhanced Completions
At the end of the second quarter, the Company completed its first pad of four drilled uncompleted ("DUC") wells which utilized enhanced completion design. These 4,100-foot standard reach lateral ("SRL") wells were completed using approximately 2,000 pounds of sand per lateral foot, approximately 100-foot stage spacing, and enhanced recovery flow back. Initial results from these first four wells are very encouraging, with an approximate 40% increase in overall average production and an approximate 60% increase in average oil production through the first 120 days when compared to offsetting wells. The offsetting wells utilized the Company's previous standard design of approximately 1,000 pounds of sand per lateral foot and stage spacing of approximately 225 feet.

Drilling and Completion Activity
During the third quarter the Company's operated program drilled six gross and net wells (4 SRL and 2 XRL), and completed zero wells. The Company's non-operated program had one net completion during the third quarter. Newly drilled wells for the quarter included three wells on the Company's central legacy acreage, one well on its French Lake acreage, and two wells of an eight-well pad on its western legacy acreage. The Company's non-operated program had four gross, one net completion during the third quarter. Subsequent to the quarter, the Company finished drilling its 8-well pad and completed five wells on its central acreage positions, and completed its one French Lake well. The results from these wells along with the remaining 2017 program, which exclusively utilized an enhanced completion design, are expected during the first half of 2018 and will help to inform the Company's drilling and completion program into 2019. Year-to-date, the Company's operated drilling program has exceeded expectations with faster drill times. Spud-to-rig release times have decreased by approximately 20% when compared to the 2016 program, and are currently averaging less than six days for an SRL.

Wattenberg Gas Takeaway
Due to increased line pressures on the gathering system operated by the Company's primary gas processor, Bonanza Creek entered into a 15-year gas purchase agreement with Sterling Energy Investments, LLC, a nearby third-party gas processor, on September 1, 2017. The agreement will allow the Company to deliver approximately 6.5 MMcf per day of wet gas, or approximately 20% of the Company's third quarter 2017 Rocky Mountain gas production, into Sterling's system. A new pipeline and interconnect, constructed by Sterling, will provide an additional gas processing outlet for gas production from the Company via its Rocky Mountain Infrastructure (RMI) gas gathering system. Gas will begin flowing to Sterling during the first half of November 2017.  The Company is currently evaluating additional alternatives to minimize the potential of production headwinds from regional infrastructure constraints.

Third Quarter 2017 Results

During the third quarter of 2017, the Company reported average daily production of 15.8 MBoe per day, at the low end of the Company's guidance range of 15.8 – 16.2 MBoe per day. Production during the quarter was negatively affected by the aforementioned increased line pressures on a third-party regional gas gathering and processing system in addition to extended downtime from offset completion operations. The Company's third quarter production decreased by 25% when compared to the third quarter of 2016 due to minimal drilling and completion activity throughout 2016 and the first half of 2017. Product mix for the third quarter of 2017 was 52% oil, 21% NGLs, and 27% natural gas. 

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $45.2 million, compared to $49.3 million for the third quarter of 2016. Crude oil accounted for approximately 76% of total revenue. Differentials for the Company's Rocky Mountain oil production during the quarter averaged approximately $4.45 per Bbl off of NYMEX WTI. Corporate average realized prices for the third quarter of 2017 are presented below.

   
Average Realized
Prices
 
  Three Months Ended
September 30, 2017
Oil (per Bbl) 44.72
Gas (per Mcf) 2.33
NGL (per Bbl) 17.79
Boe (Per Boe) 30.85
   

Lease operating expense ("LOE") for the third quarter of 2017 was $9.6 million, or $6.63 per Boe, a 3% reduction in total LOE compared to $9.9 million or $5.13 per Boe in the third quarter of 2016. Per unit metrics increased year over year as a result of declining volumes. These metrics are expected to improve as cost reductions are implemented and production volumes stabilize and increase. Future expected LOE reductions from cost saving initiatives are discussed in the "Production, Capital, and Expense Outlook" section below.

Below is a breakout of the Company's regional LOE and gas plant and midstream operating expense for the third quarter of 2017.

 
 
  Three Months Ended September 30, 2017
  Rocky Mountain   Mid-Continent   Total Company
  ($M)   ($/Boe)   ($M)   ($/Boe)   ($M)   ($/Boe)
Lease operating expense $ 6,638     $ 5.76     $ 3,005     $ 9.97     $ 9,643     $ 6.63  
Gas plant and midstream operating expense $ 1,299     $ 1.13     $ 1,966     $ 6.52     3,265     $ 2.24  
Total $ 7,937     $ 6.89     $ 4,971     $ 16.49     $ 12,908     $ 8.87  
                                               

The Company's general and administrative ("G&A") expense was $15.2 million for the third quarter of 2017, a 19% decrease from the third quarter of 2016. The decrease is primarily due to $5.9 million in advisory fees related to financial alternatives that were incurred in 2016.  The Company's recurring cash G&A for the third quarter was, $8.6 million, compared to $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2016. The 21% decrease in recurring cash G&A is due primarily to the cost reduction initiatives that were implemented since restructuring, including the previously announced reduction in force, which occurred in August of 2017.

Recurring cash G&A is a non-GAAP measure. Please refer to the reconciliation to GAAP general and administrative expense in the financial exhibits to this press release.

Production, Capital, and Expense Outlook

The Company is providing updated production, capital, and expense guidance for the remainder of the year. The Company is reducing its full-year production guidance by 4%, to a mid-point of 15.8 MBoe per day as a result of increased line pressures in the basin, and significant processing downtime expected in the fourth quarter. To mitigate these line pressure issues, the Company has secured an agreement with another third party gas processor in the basin, and is actively exploring additional options to alleviate these basin level bottlenecks that negatively impact production. Due to changes in activity timing, CAPEX guidance for the year has been lowered to a midpoint of $112 million compared to previous guidance of $125 million. As a part of its ongoing cost structure review, the Company has identified further savings to its LOE, which will be implemented throughout 2018. The Company expects to reduce its run-rate LOE and gas plant/midstream operating expense by approximately $8.0 to $9.0 million in total, or approximately 15% of their annualized third quarter amounts, by the beginning of 2019. These LOE savings along with the previously announced G&A savings are concrete examples of the Company's commitment to reducing its cost structure and increasing full-cycle returns.

 Below is a table summarizing the Company's production, capital, and expense guidance for the remainder of 2017.

Guidance Summary      
  Three Months Ended
December 31, 2017
  Twelve Months Ended
December 31, 2017
       
Production (MBoe/d) 13.8 – 14.2   15.7 – 15.9
LOE ($/Boe)     $6.50 – $7.00
Midstream expense ($/Boe)     $1.90 – $2.10
Cash G&A* ($MM)     $41 – $43
Production taxes (% of pre-derivative realization)     7% – 8%
Total CAPEX ($MM)     $108 – $115
* Cash G&A guidance assumes severance costs of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2017 and non-recurring expenses of $5.4 million. Cash G&A is a non-GAAP measure that excludes the Company's stock based compensation. The Company does not guide to GAAP G&A expense as it has less certainty to the stock based compensation portion of GAAP G&A.
 

Financial Highlights

As of the end of the third quarter, the Company had liquidity of $223 million, which included cash on hand of $31 million and $192 million of borrowing capacity under its credit facility.  The Company has no outstanding term debt and its credit facility is undrawn. Based on the terms of the credit facility, the Company's next borrowing base redetermination will occur in April of 2018. The Company's balance sheet strength allows it to be flexible, patient and selective in its investment decisions, and the opportunity to participate in acquisition opportunities and the flexibility to objectively evaluate divestiture candidates.

Schedule 6: Adjusted Net Income (Loss)
(in thousands, except per share amounts, unaudited)

Adjusted net income (loss) is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines adjusted net loss as net loss after adjusting first for (1) the impact of certain non-cash items and one-time transactions and then (2) the non-cash and one time items’ impact on taxes based on a tax rate that approximates the Company's effective tax rate in each period. Adjusted net loss is not a measure of net income as determined by GAAP.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) to the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted net loss.
