DENVER, Oct. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HighPoint Resources Corporation (the "Company" or "HighPoint") (NYSE: HPR) today reported third quarter of 2018 financial and operating results highlighted by strong growth in oil volumes and EBITDAX and lower lease operating expense.

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company reported a net loss of $29.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2018 was $2.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. EBITDAX for the third quarter of 2018 was $78.0 million. Adjusted net income (loss) and EBITDAX are non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures. Please reference the reconciliations to GAAP financial statements at the end of this release.

Chief Executive Officer and President Scot Woodall commented, "I am pleased with our execution and initial results of the Hereford program in the two full quarters since acquisition. The development program has confirmed our acquisition and economic model for this large, oil-weighted and rural acreage block. We are seeing positive early indications of performance from our initial DSU as the wells have been online for three weeks and are producing at a current average per well rate of approximately 480 Boe/d, of which approximately 90% is oil, and continue to increase. In addition, the early well performance from the DUCs validates the productivity of the Hereford Field and the Company's economic model for full field development. Two of the best performing wells are located six miles apart and have established strong indications of productive deliverability from east to west across our acreage position.

"We successfully managed through mid-stream constraints that persisted into the third quarter and delivered financial results that were highlighted by a 14% sequential increase in both equivalent production and oil volumes, strong growth in EBITDAX, and lower lease operating expense. Oil represented 63% of total equivalent production and we anticipate that the percentage of oil volumes will continue to grow in future quarters as the Hereford development program is expanded. DCP's commissioning of the Mewbourn 3 gas processing facility was completed during the quarter and reached design capacity of 200 MMcf/d in mid-September. We have strategically diversified our gas processing exposure in Northeast ("NE") Wattenberg to other outlets, which will approximately double our first half of 2018 processing capacity by year-end. We believe this flexibility will limit our exposure to any future mid-stream constraints in NE Wattenberg and mitigates our reliance on DCP.

"Our favorable oil weighting, low cost structure and attractive oil differential allows us to deliver a peer leading basin operating margin of $40.69 per Boe for the third quarter. We are well positioned to generate a strong growth profile with a dominant acreage position in the oily and rural areas of the DJ Basin. We will continue our disciplined capital approach and maintain ample liquidity of $567 million that supports our development program going forward."

1 Basin operating margin is defined as the average realized price per Boe before hedging less lease operating expense, gathering, transportation and process expense and production tax expense

The Company reported oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids ("NGL") production of 2.74 MMBoe for the third quarter of 2018, which was an increase of 43% over the third quarter of 2017. Oil volumes totaled 1.72 MMBbls or 63% of total equivalent volumes, which was an increase of 43% over the third quarter of 2017. Production sales volumes from NE Wattenberg totaled 2.3 MMBoe and Hereford volumes totaled 0.4 MMBoe.

Production sales volumes were comprised of approximately 63% oil, 20% natural gas and 17% NGLs.

Pro forma production for the first nine months of 2018 was 7.4 MMBoe (62% oil and includes approximately 0.3 MMBoe associated with Hereford for the first quarter of 2018) and it is estimated that 0.5 MMBoe of production has been adversely impacted due to mid-stream constraints. Despite DCP's addition of processing capacity, the Company continues to be impacted by high line pressures, which is having a modest impact on production.

For the third quarter of 2018, WTI oil prices averaged $69.50 per barrel, Northwest Pipeline ("NWPL") natural gas prices averaged $2.32 per MMBtu and NYMEX natural gas prices averaged $2.91 per MMBtu. Commodity price realizations to benchmark pricing were WTI less $2.51 per barrel of oil and NWPL less $0.73 per Mcf of gas. The NGL price averaged approximately 35% of the WTI price per barrel.

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company had derivative commodity swaps in place for 13,843 barrels of oil per day tied to WTI pricing at $54.62 per barrel, 5,000 MMBtu of natural gas per day tied to NWPL regional pricing at $2.68 per MMBtu and no hedges in place for NGLs.

Lease operating expense ("LOE") averaged $2.65 per Boe in the third quarter of 2018 compared to $3.08 per Boe in the third quarter of 2017. The year-over-year reduction in LOE is primarily a result of improved operating efficiencies, higher production sales volumes, and disposition of higher LOE wells in Utah.

Production tax expense averaged $4.20 per Boe in the third quarter of 2018 compared to $2.80 per Boe in the third quarter of 2017. Higher production tax expense was primarily the result of higher oil prices. Production tax expense averaged approximately 9% of revenues in the third quarter of 2018 compared to 8% of revenues in the third quarter of 2017.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization averaged $21.54 per Boe in the third quarter of 2018 compared to $22.52 per Boe in the third quarter of 2017.

Debt and Liquidity

At September 30, 2018, the principal debt balance was $627.0 million, while cash and cash equivalents were $93.0 million, resulting in net debt of $534.0 million. Cash and cash equivalents were primarily used during the quarter to execute on the third quarter development program.

On September 17, 2018, the Company announced that it had entered into a new amended and restated credit agreement for its revolving credit facility (“Facility”). The agreement extended the maturity date of the Facility by over three years to 2023 and increased the borrowing base and commitments by 67% to $500 million. The increase in the borrowing base is a result of the greater value of the NE Wattenberg assets due to ongoing development and reflects contribution from the Hereford assets. The Company currently has no amounts drawn on the facility and has $474 million in available borrowing capacity on the Facility after taking into account a $26 million letter of credit.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2018 totaled $124.0 million. The Company operated three drilling rigs and capital projects included spudding 21 extended reach lateral ("XRL") wells and placing 27 XRL wells on initial flowback. Capital expenditures were lower than anticipated as greater than expected rig and service-related downtime resulted in the deferral of certain planned spuds and completions during the quarter.

Capital expenditures included $109.3 million for drilling and completion operations, $5.8 million for leasehold, and $8.9 million for infrastructure and corporate assets.

OPERATIONAL UPDATE

Hereford Field

Production sales volumes for the third quarter of 2018 in the Hereford Field averaged 4,255 Boe/d (75% oil), which is a 68% increase over the second quarter of 2018. During the third quarter, 14 wells were spud and 8 wells were placed on flowback, including the initial 5 wells that were drilled and completed by the Company. Drilling operations commenced in April on DSU 11-63-14, which included 10 XRL wells (6 Niobrara and 4 Codell). Drilling was completed in June and flowback began on the initial four wells at the end of September (one well had mechanical issues and is being used as an observation well). The four wells were completed utilizing the Company's standard completion design and modified controlled flowback methodology. Drilling and completion costs for the four wells averaged $5.1 million, which is consistent with cost expectations for the Hereford Field. The Company is seeing positive early indications of performance as the wells have been on flowback for approximately three weeks and are currently producing at an average rate of 480 Boe/d per well, of which approximately 90% is oil, and continue to increase.

Completion operations continue on DSU 11-63-15 (10 XRL wells) and DSU 11-64-23 (3 XRL wells) and it is anticipated that the wells will be placed on flowback during the fourth quarter of 2018. Drilling operations have commenced on DSU 11-63-16 (15 XRL wells).

Flowback commenced from the nine XRL wells drilled, but not completed, by the previous operator in June and July, respectively. After completing two full quarters since acquisition, early production data has confirmed the Company's acquisition and initial development model, including high oil content, productive deliverability across the acreage position and expectations of completion costs. The wells have exhibited some production variations due to a combination of tighter effective spacing of 18 wells per DSU, mechanical issues, and certain Codell wells being drilled as vertical offsets to Niobrara wells compared to a standard "wine rack" development pattern. The best performing well is located in DSU 11-63-13 on the eastern portion of the field and has shown strong indications of performance as it reached a peak initial rate of approximately 700 Boe/d (84% oil) from a lateral of 8,377 feet utilizing modified controlled flowback. The well is located adjacent to the initial development wells located in DSU 11-63-14. The Company has also seen solid production from the western portion of the field as one of the DUCs in DSU 11-63-18 reached a peak initial rate of approximately 620 Boe/d (90% oil) utilizing modified controlled flowback. This early well performance, which is located across a six mile section of the Hereford Field, supports the Company's model for the full scale Hereford development program.

NE Wattenberg

The Company produced an average of 25,477 Boe/d (61% oil) in the third quarter of 2018 in NE Wattenberg, representing a 38% increase over the third quarter of 2017. For the third quarter of 2018, the Company drilled 7 XRL wells and placed 19 XRL wells on initial flowback. The Company continues to see strong performance from DSU 5-61-27 (10 XRL wells), which is located in the east-central portion of NE Wattenberg. Initial flowback began in the second quarter and after six months of production the wells are currently producing approximately 615 Boe/d (80% oil) per well, highlighting the resource opportunity of the remaining 15 undeveloped DSUs in this area of the field.

MARKETING UPDATE

The Company’s NE Wattenberg gas volume allocated to DCP progressively increased during the third quarter as a result of DCP's Mewbourn 3 gas processing facility being commissioned in August and reaching design capacity in September. The Company has diversified its gas processing exposure in NE Wattenberg to other outlets and has approximately doubled its first half 2018 capacity, with a further increase expected in the first half of 2019. This added flexibility mitigates the Company's reliance on DCP and limits any local mid-stream issues in NE Wattenberg for the foreseeable future.

  1. Realized and unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivatives are presented herein as separate line items but are combined for a total commodity derivative gain (loss) in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. This separate presentation is a non-GAAP measure. Management believes the separate presentation of the realized and unrealized commodity derivative gains and losses is useful because the realized cash settlement portion provides a better understanding of the Company's hedge position. The Company also believes that this disclosure allows for a more accurate comparison to its peers.

Discretionary cash flow, adjusted net income (loss) and EBITDAX are non-GAAP measures. These measures are presented because management believes that they provide useful additional information to investors for analysis of the Company's performance and, in the case of discretionary cash flow, liquidity. In addition, the Company believes that these measures are widely used by professional research analysts and others in the valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, and that many investors use the published research of industry research analysts in making investment decisions.

These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or other income, profitability, cash flow or liquidity measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The definition of these measures may vary among companies, and, therefore, the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
