Penn Virginia Corporation Reports First Quarter 2017 Results and

Provides Operational Update

HOUSTON, TX, PR Newswire, May 9, 2017 - Penn Virginia Corporation (“Penn Virginia” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PVAC) today announced its financial and operational results for the first quarter 2017.

Key Operational and Financial Highlights

 

    Production reached 9,495 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOEPD), of which 71% was crude oil exceeding the top end of production guidance.

 

    Recently completed the Kudu pad, the first pad drilled with our latest slickwater completion design on 400-foot spaced laterals, with initial results in-line with the type curve.

 

    Successfully tested slickwater completion in Area 2; preliminary results from the Lager well, which commenced flow back in early May, are highly encouraging. The well is currently flowing 1,500 BOEPD and climbing on day five of flowback. The 24-hour IP rate has not yet been established.

 

    Added 1,700 net acres, increasing core acreage position to approximately 56,000 net acres.

 

    Total product revenues increased by 7.4% from the fourth quarter of 2016 to $34.7 million, of which 87% was generated by crude oil sales.

 

    Operating income was $11.9 million, up 16.3% from the fourth quarter of 2016, and net income was $28.4 million, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2016.

 

    Adjusted EBITDAX(1) was $20.5 million, compared to $21.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

 

    Liquidity remains strong at approximately $100 million as of the end of the first quarter. Using the midpoint of guidance, 54% of projected oil production remains hedged in 2017 at $48.62/bbl.

 

(1)  Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP measure. Definitions of non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP-based measures appear at the end of this release.

Management Comment

“We believe we are off to a good start for 2017,“ said John A. Brooks, Interim Principal Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer. “We are very excited about the early results from the Lager 3H which is our first test of the slickwater completion design in Area 2. On day five of flowback, we were seeing over 1,500 BOEPD of production with almost 5,000 pounds of surface flowing pressure on a 16/64 inch


choke, and production continues to climb. The Lager 3H has an 8,000 foot lateral and was completed with 40 frac stages, averaging 2,450 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. The 24-hour IP rate for the well has not yet been established. This is an important data point in extending the development program down dip into our deeper, higher pressured acreage in Area 2 and could drive changes in our drilling schedule.”

Mr. Brooks continued, “We are focused on executing development and continuing to improve our slickwater completion design to optimize returns where we are currently targeting 2,500 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. In April, we turned the four-well Kudu pad to sales. This is the first test of our latest design in slickwater completion with 400-foot lateral spacing, albeit with somewhat shorter lateral lengths of approximately 5,400 feet per well, treated with an average of 2,415 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. For the Kudu pad, 24-hour IPs averaged 1,470 BOEPD and estimated 30-day IPs are averaging approximately 880 BOEPD based on 25 days of production. Additionally, in most of our recent slickwater completions, including the Kudu unit, we have observed production increases in the older, offset wells. This production uplift has not been considered in the economics or IP numbers but is clearly meaningful. Our former hybrid completion design usually led to negative impacts on offset wells.

“We continue to be encouraged with the early results we are seeing on the Axis pad. That pad is our northernmost drilling unit in Area 1, with wells that have shallower depths and lower pressures than our typical wells, but with longer laterals, averaging approximately 7,000 feet per well, treated with, on average, 2,484 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. For this three-well pad, 24-hour IPs averaged over 2,100 BOEPD per well and IP-30s averaged approximately 1,270 BOEPD, further validating the success of our slickwater completion design in Area 1.

“Our two-rig drilling program continues to advance, maintaining strong spud-release times in the first quarter; however, to optimize completions on two adjacent four-well pads that we now expect to be completed concurrently in August, the change in scheduling has shifted some anticipated production from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2017,” Mr. Brooks concluded.

First Quarter 2017 Operating Results

Total production in the first quarter of 2017 was 9,495 BOEPD or 855 MBOE, with approximately 71%, or 608 MBOE, of production from crude oil, 14% from natural gas liquids (NGLs), and 15% from natural gas. The quarter reflected approximately two months of production from the three-well Sable pad, and one month of production from the three-well Axis pad.

Penn Virginia recently turned to sales production from its Kudu pad in Area 1 of the lower Eagle Ford shale. The four recently drilled wells on the pad are the first wells to test 400-foot lateral spacing using our latest Gen 4 slickwater completion design. There are five additional wells in the Kudu unit, all of which were previously completed with hybrid frac designs.

In aggregate, the four Kudu wells flowed at a preliminary 24-hour IP of 5,889 BOEPD. Penn Virginia has an average working interest of 43.7% in each of the wells. There has not been a 30-day IP established yet, but the preliminary estimate based on 25 days of production is 3,522 BOEPD. The pad is still in the process of flowing back fracking fluid, so this estimate will likely change.

As previously announced, at the beginning of March 2017, production from the three-well Axis pad was turned to sales. The Axis wells had a combined 24-hour gross IP of 6,341 BOEPD, of which approximately 93% or 5,907 BOPD was crude oil production. The combined 30-day IP rate for the three Axis wells was 3,804 BOEPD with an average rate per well of 1,268 BOEPD.

The Lager 3H was completed in April and recently commenced flow back. This single-well test of our slickwater completion design in Area 2 has 8,000 feet of flowing lateral with 40 open stages. Penn Virginia has a 41.2% working interest in the well.

Also during the quarter, the Company completed the drill-out of the remaining 14 stages on the Sable 6H well that were obstructed during initial completion in the fourth quarter of 2016. Currently the Sable 6H is producing from all 23 completed stages.

In the first quarter of 2017, the Company leased and/or extended approximately 1,700 net acres, increasing its core acreage position to approximately 56,000 net acres.

First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Total product revenues were $34.7 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $32.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, driven by an 8.8% increase in crude oil sales and an aggregate rise in commodity prices. Crude oil sales contributed approximately 87% of total product revenues, a slight increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.

The average realized price for crude oil rose 4.3% to $49.47 per barrel in the 2017 first quarter when compared to the previous quarter. Including the cash settlements from oil derivatives, the realized price


for crude oil was $46.19 per barrel, which is 3.9% lower than the previous quarter. The realized price of NGLs rose 11.9% from the previous quarter to $19.34 per barrel ($0.46 per gallon). The realized price of natural gas was $3.06 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf), which is an 8.5% increase over the previous quarter. The total realized equivalent price for all production during the quarter was $40.63 per BOE ($38.30 per BOE including cash settlements from derivatives).

Total direct operating expenses (general & administrative (G&A), lease operating expense (LOE), gathering, processing & transportation expense, and severance and ad valorem taxes) were $12.8 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $12.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Operating income was $11.9 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to operating income of $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. This $1.6 million improvement was due primarily to an increase in product revenues, a reduction in G&A expense and a decrease in production and ad valorem taxes, partially offset by an increase in LOE.

Net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $28.4 million, or $1.88 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or a loss of $0.12 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2016. The primary reasons for the improvement were a $17.0 million gain on derivatives compared to a $12.3 million loss on derivatives in the previous quarter and the increase in operating income.

Adjusted EBITDAX(1) was $20.5 million in the first quarter of 2017, a 2.8% decline from the fourth quarter of 2016. The primary driver for the decrease was the cash payment of $2.0 million for settlement on derivatives in the first quarter of 2017 compared to a $0.4 million cash receipt on derivative settlements in the fourth quarter of 2016, partially offset by higher operating income.

 

(1)  Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP measure. Definitions of non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP-based measures appear at the end of this release.

Adjusted EBITDAX represents net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, exploration expense and share-based compensation expense, further adjusted to exclude the effects of gains or losses on sale of assets, accretion of firm transportation obligation, non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, strategic and financial advisory costs, restructuring expenses and other non-cash items. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within our industry. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income (loss). Adjusted EBITDAX as defined by Penn Virginia may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) and other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income or cash flows from operating activities. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of Penn Virginia’s results as reported under GAAP.
