company logo

DALLAS, March 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (Nasdaq:MCEP) ("Mid-Con Energy" or the "Partnership") announced today financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012. Results contained herein are preliminary, and are therefore subject to change prior to filing audited results on Form 10-K on or around March 6, 2013.

Mid-Con Energy emphasized the following 2012 results:

  • Increased production approximately 60% to 1,907 barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) per day on average in 2012 from 1,191 Boe per day on average in 2011. Furthermore, production in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 2,261 Boe per day on average.
  • Increased estimated net proved reserves approximately 31% to 13.1 million Boe (MMBoe) (99% Oil / 67% Proved Developed) at December 31, 2012 compared to 10.0 MMBoe (99% Oil / 69% Proved Developed) at December 31, 2011.
  • Increased Adjusted EBITDA approximately 99% to $47.7 million in 2012, up $23.7 million from $24.0 million in 2011.

Mid-Con Energy emphasized the following 2012 significant events:

  • Increased the quarterly distribution rate approximately 4% from $0.475 per unit for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 to $0.495 per unit for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.
  • Acquired 442 Boe per day average net production and 3.0 MMBoe net proved reserves in four separate transactions for a combined purchase price of approximately $49.0 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments.
  • Completed first follow-on offering in October 2012 of 1,000,000 common units representing limited partner interests at a price to the public of $21.20 per unit. Net proceeds of $20.4 million were used to reduce borrowings outstanding under the credit facility.

The following table reflects selected operating and financial results for the full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 and previous year comparison. The Partnership's consolidated financial statements can be found in supplemental tables of this press release.

Craig George, Executive Chairman of the Board, commented, "We believe that our performance during the fourth quarter of 2012 was a positive capstone to a busy and successful first year as an MLP. During our initial public offering in December 2011, we conveyed our goals and expectations for 2012; and we are pleased that we not only delivered on these expectations, but in many ways exceeded what we set out to accomplish. We consider these results a solid foundation for favorable ongoing returns for our unitholders."

Full Year 2012 Results

Production volumes for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were 698 thousand Boe (MBoe) or 1,907 Boe per day on average. In comparison, Mid-Con Energy's production volumes for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 were 434 MBoe or 1,191 Boe per day on average. This approximate 60% increase in average daily production was primarily due to (i) ongoing waterflood response in each of our core areas, (ii) active drilling programs in the Partnership's Southern and Northeastern Oklahoma core areas (iii) six full months of realized production from 115 Boe per day on average acquired in June 2012, and (iv) realized production from approximately 83 and 244 Boe per day on average acquired in October and November 2012, respectively. During 2012, Mid-Con Energy's development activities accounted for $21.6 million in total capital expenditures, used to drill 39 gross (31 net) producing and injection wells.

Oil sales, excluding the effect of commodity derivatives, were $60.9 million in 2012 and accounted for approximately 99% of total oil and natural gas sales. This represented an approximate 65% increase from $36.8 million in 2011 and resulted in an average realized oil price of $89.80 per barrel (Bbl), in 2012 compared to $90.45 per Bbl in 2011. Approximately 74% of Mid-Con Energy's 2012 oil production was hedged at an average price of $101.51 per Bbl. Given the favorable variance between the average hedge price and NYMEX WTI, the Partnership received $3.7 million for realized commodity derivatives during 2012, or $5.47 per Bbl. This compares to $2.2 million paid during 2011, or a ($5.30) per Bbl.

Natural gas sales of $0.7 million, which included the sale of natural gas liquids, accounted for the remaining 1% of total oil and natural gas sales in 2012, and resulted in an average realized price of $5.52 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf).

Lease operating expenses, which included ad valorem taxes, were $10.9 million, or $15.68 per Boe, in 2012 compared to $8.5 million, or $19.56 per Boe, in 2011. Development and drilling activities in 2012 have equated to an increase in the aggregate number of producing wells and operating expenses; however the realized production received from these new wells resulted in approximately 20% lower lease operating expense per Boe.

Production taxes in 2012 were $2.0 million, or $2.82 per Boe, for an effective tax rate of approximately 3.2% compared to production taxes in 2011 of $1.9 million, or $4.31 per Boe, for an effective tax rate of 4.9%. The decrease in the 2012 effective tax rate was due to select Southern Oklahoma properties having received a reduced production tax rate from Oklahoma's Enhanced Oil Recovery Project Gross Production Tax Exemption.

In the Partnership's first full year as a publicly traded partnership, total general and administrative expenses increased $7.2 million to $11.0 million in 2012, which included $6.3 million in non-cash equity-based compensation. In comparison, 2011 general and administrative expenses of $3.8 million included $1.7 million in non-cash equity-based compensation. Additional variances compared to the prior year were related to higher professional fees necessary to comply with public reporting requirements and incremental personnel costs from the hiring of new staff.

Adjusted EBITDA for 2012 was $47.7 million, approximately 99% above 2011 Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 million. Distributable Cash Flow for 2012 was $41.9 million after subtracting $1.6 million in cash interest expense and $4.2 million in estimated maintenance capital expenditures.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

Mid-Con Energy's production volumes for the fourth quarter of 2012 were 208 MBoe or 2,261 Boe per day on average, compared to production of 136 MBoe or 1,481 Boe per day on average in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Oil sales, excluding the effect of commodity derivatives, were $17.0 million in fourth quarter of 2012 and resulted in an average realized oil price of $83.50 per barrel (Bbl), compared to $90.35 per Bbl in the fourth quarter of 2011. Approximately 64% of Mid-Con Energy's oil production during the fourth quarter of 2012 was hedged at an average price of $101.59 per Bbl. Given the favorable variance between the average hedge price and NYMEX WTI, the Partnership received $1.7 million for realized commodity derivatives during the fourth quarter of 2012, or $8.52 per Bbl. This compares to $1.4 million paid during the fourth quarter of 2011, or ($10.45) per Bbl.

Lease operating expenses were $3.6 million, or $17.25 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $2.5 million, or $18.68 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Production taxes in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $0.7 million, or $3.21 per Boe, for an effective tax rate of approximately 3.9% compared to production taxes in the fourth quarter of 2011 of $0.8 million, or $5.53 per Boe, for an effective tax rate of 6.3%.

Total general and administrative expenses during the fourth quarter of 2012 were $2.4 million and included $1.1 million in non-cash equity-based compensation. In comparison, general and administrative expenses during the fourth quarter of 2011 were $1.4 million.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $13.3 million, approximately 122% above Adjusted EBITDA of $6.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Distributable Cash Flow for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $11.7 million after subtracting $0.5 million in cash interest expense and $1.1 million in estimated maintenance capital expenditures.

Year End 2012 Estimated Net Proved Reserves

Mid-Con Energy's year end 2012 estimated net proved reserves were 13.1 MMBoe, representing a 3.1 MMBoe or approximate 31% increase compared to year end 2011 estimated net proved reserves of 10.0 MMBoe. Reserves at year end 2012 were categorized as approximately 99% oil and 67% proved developed, both on a Boe basis.

At December 31, 2012, the standardized measure of the Partnership's estimated net proved reserves was $403.4 million. The standardized measure represents the present value of estimated future net revenue to be generated from the production of proved reserves, determined in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC, without giving effect to non-property related expenses, such as general and administrative expenses, debt service and future federal income tax expense, or to depreciation, depletion and amortization, and then discounted using an annual rate of 10 percent. Given Mid-Con Energy's status as a limited partnership, the calculation of standardized measure does not include any provision for federal income tax expense.

The following table shows estimated proved reserves as of December 31, 2012, as prepared by the Partnership's internal reserve engineers and audited by Cawley, Gillespie & Associates, Inc., independent petroleum engineers.

Hedging Update

Mid-Con Energy enters into various commodity derivative contracts intended to achieve more predictable cash flows and to reduce its exposure to fluctuations in the price of oil. The Partnership's hedging program objective is to protect its ability to make current distributions, and to be better positioned to increase its quarterly distribution over time, while retaining some ability to participate in upward movements in oil prices. Mid-Con Energy uses a phased approach, looking approximately 36 months forward while targeting a higher hedged percentage in the near 12 months of the period.

Supplementing its primary hedging strategy described above, Mid-Con Energy also intends to enter into additional commodity derivative contracts in connection with material increases in its estimated production and at times when management believes market conditions or other circumstances suggest that it is prudent to do so, as opposed to entering into commodity derivative contacts at predetermined times or on prescribed terms.

As of March 5, 2013, the following table reflects volumes of Mid-Con Energy's production covered by commodity derivative contracts, and the average prices at which the production will be hedged:

2013 2014 2015

Liquidity Update

As of December 31, 2012, the Partnership's total liquidity of $53.1 million included $1.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and $52.0 million of available borrowings under the revolving credit facility, which has a current borrowing base of $130.0 million.

Increased Cash Distributions

As announced on January 24, 2013, the board of directors of Mid-Con Energy's general partner declared its second consecutive increase in the quarterly cash distribution rate to $0.495 per unit for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. This represented an approximate 4% increase over the $0.475 per unit initial distribution rate declared at the Partnership's initial public offering in December 2011. The quarterly distribution was paid February 14, 2013 to all unitholders of record at the close of business on February 7, 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release, financial tables and other supplemental information include "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Distributable Cash Flow", each of which are non-generally accepted accounting principles ("Non-GAAP") measures used by our management to describe financial performance with external users of our financial statements.
