HOUSTON, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rosehill Resources Inc. (“Rosehill” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ROSE, ROSEW, ROSEU) today reported operational and financial results for the third quarter of 2018 and recent key items.

Third Quarter 2018 Highlights and Recent Key Items:

  • Grew average net production to 19,750 barrels of oil equivalent per day (“BOEPD”) (73% oil and 87% total liquids) for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 7% compared to the second quarter of 2018
  • Reported a net loss attributable to Rosehill of $31.4 million, or $4.76 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2018, which included a $62.3 million non-cash, pre-tax loss on commodity derivative instruments
  • Delivered Adjusted EBITDAX (a non-GAAP measure defined and reconciled below) of $56.7 million for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 15% over the second quarter of 2018
  • Reduced combined lease operating and general and administrative expenses, excluding stock-based compensation, per barrel of oil equivalent (“BOE”) by $1.81, or 18%, compared to second quarter of 2018
  • Encouraging early results in Southern Delaware with first four wells averaging initial production (“IP”) 24 rates of 956 BOEPD, 86% oil, or 198 BOEPD per 1,000 ft. Actions are underway to implement artificial lift across Southern Delaware wells that are expected to significantly increase future IP 24 ranges to at least 1,150 to 1,350 BOEPD, or 240 to 275 BOEPD per 1,000 ft.
  • Entered into new transportation agreement in Southern Delaware providing ample flow assurance and future flexibility; amended transportation agreement in Northern Delaware resulting in greater flow assurance and improved margins
  • Completed equity offering launched in late September, tripling the Company’s unaffiliated public float with modest overall dilution

Gary C. Hanna, Rosehill’s Chairman and Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “During the third quarter we continued our progress toward executing our plan for 2018, most notably by achieving another quarter of impressive cash flow and production growth, as well as by exceeding a production milestone of 20,000 BOEPD in early September. Along with this growth in the third quarter, the Company maintained a focus on cost management that resulted in a $1.81, or 18%, decrease in combined lease operating and cash general and administrative expenses per BOE compared to the second quarter of 2018. When comparing to the first quarter of 2018, we have reduced combined lease operating and cash general and administrative expenses per BOE by $4.65, or 35%.

“We are also pleased to provide an update on progress in our Southern Delaware area. We are encouraged by the production results associated with the initial wells drilled and are looking forward to applying our learnings to the future development of the asset. The extensive data we have gathered so far, including initial seismic results as well as log and coring analysis, is confirming our original expectations. We have made progress in the buildout of our water and midstream infrastructure in Southern Delaware, and now have the necessary transportation agreements in place to move our product to market at an attractive cost. We look forward to maintaining this momentum through the end of the year and driving value for our shareholders.”

Operational Results

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company’s net production averaged 19,750 BOEPD, a 7% increase compared to the average for the second quarter of 2018, comprised of 14,370 barrels of oil per day, 2,750 barrels of natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) per day and 15.8 million cubic feet of gas (“MMCF”) per day. Rosehill operated two rigs, drilled seven gross horizontal wells and completed ten wells in the third quarter of 2018 and had three drilled uncompleted wells (“DUCs”) at the end of the third quarter of 2018. The Company also drilled and completed two salt water disposal (“SWD”) wells during the third quarter of 2018 that contributed to the overall per unit decrease in lease operating expense.

In August, the Company began flowback on a four well pad on the Weber 26 lease in Loving County, with the wells producing from three separate landing zones including the Lower Wolfcamp A, Wolfcamp A X/Y, and 3rd Bone Springs Sand. These wells reached average IP 30 rates of 1,370 BOEPD, 80% oil, or 301 BOEPD per 1,000 feet.

In late September, the Company began flowback on the Kyle 26 E007 located in Loving County targeting the 2nd Bone Springs Sand formation. The Kyle 26 E007 well reached an IP 24 of 1,396 BOEPD, 78% oil, or 285 BOEPD per 1,000 feet.

Financial Results

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company reported net loss attributable to Rosehill of $31.4 million, or $4.76 per share, as compared to net income of $9.2 million, or a $0.32 loss per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018. The third quarter of 2018 included a
$62.3 million non-cash, pre-tax loss on commodity derivative instruments compared to a $10.8 million non-cash, pre-tax loss on commodity derivative instruments in the second quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDAX totaled $56.7 million for the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $49.2 million in the second quarter of 2018. This increase of 15% was driven primarily by higher production and lower per unit operating expenses.

For the third quarter of 2018, average realized prices (all prices excluding the effects of derivatives) were $55.07 per barrel of oil, $1.82 per Mcf of natural gas and $28.16 per barrel of NGLs, resulting in a total equivalent price of $45.44 per BOE, down 5% from the second quarter of 2018.

Rosehill’s cash operating costs for the third quarter of 2018 were $11.47 per BOE, which includes lease operating expenses (“LOE”), gathering and transportation, production taxes and general and administrative expenses (“G&A”) and excludes costs associated with stock-based compensation. Third quarter cash operating costs per BOE decreased 14% as compared to second quarter, primarily attributable to reduced LOE and G&A.

During the third quarter of 2018, Rosehill incurred capital costs, excluding asset retirement costs, of $93.5 million, which included
$24.2 million and $0.8 million related to facilities and leasehold acquisition, respectively.

Development Update

During the third quarter of 2018 the Company brought three wells online in the Southern Delaware area, with a fourth well brought online in October 2018. The production results from these wells represent the first results for the Company in the Southern Delaware area. The company is currently drilling on a three well pad in the Southern Delaware area and expects to drill between three and five wells in the fourth quarter.

Initial findings in the early development of the Southern Delaware area include a high oil content, extensive natural fracturing, and strong formation conductivity. The wells drilled to date have averaged 86% oil and 14% wet gas and have initially been placed online without the assistance of artificial lift. Based on the reservoir pressure environment and low gas-oil ratio conditions, the Company believes future well performance will be enhanced through additional optimization steps and has begun preparations to test various artificial lift solutions. Production optimization steps currently in process on the initial wells drilled include gas lift and electric submersible pumps. Based on the results of the Company’s testing of artificial lift solutions after initial production, the Company is accelerating the installation of artificial lift on future wells drilled in the area in order to optimize production and value creation. The following table presents, for the four wells brought on line to date, an average of the actual initial peak production results achieved without the utilization of artificial lift and a range of the potential initial peak production results we would have expected had artificial lift been utilized initially.

Logging and coring work on the initial wells have revealed the presence of extensive natural fracturing within certain portions of the acreage that could result in more effective completion and stimulation of wells. As previously announced, the Company participated in a 3D seismic survey and has received preliminary seismic volume. The Company is expecting to receive the fully processed data in the fourth quarter of 2018. Once fully integrated with core and wireline data from the initial wells, the processed data is expected to improve development of the acreage through optimized lateral placement across the Southern Delaware acreage.

The Company continued the buildout of its facilities infrastructure during the third quarter in both the Northern and Southern Delaware areas in order to lower cost and allow for optimal well flowback conditions. The Company brought online one SWD well in the Northern Delaware area and one SWD well in the Southern Delaware area, increasing its disposal capacity by 35,000 barrels of water per day (“BWPD”) to a total of 155,000 BWPD across both operating areas. The Company has several additional SWD wells in the permitting process and will plan to bring these wells online subject to the timing of the overall development plan in each operating area.

Capital Structure and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2018, Rosehill had $11 million in cash on hand and $288 million in long-term debt. As of September 30, 2018, total liquidity, when adjusting for the Company’s September equity offering that closed in October, was approximately $116 million which included cash on hand, proceeds received from our equity offering, availability under the revolving credit facility and the Company’s ability to issue an additional $50 million of Series B preferred stock (subject to certain conditions). The Company elected to pursue a borrowing base redetermination using reserve data as of September 30, 2018 and this process is currently underway. The Company is anticipating completing the redetermination process in November and expects the borrowing base to increase.

Transportation & Hedging Update

Sky Eye Measurement

The Company recently entered into additional transportation and marketing arrangements to ensure its products are moved to end markets at favorable economic terms. The Company entered into an agreement with Oryx Midstream Services for pipeline transportation of oil production from its Southern Delaware operating area. The agreement is structured as a multi-year acreage dedication with increasing volume capacities and will allow for delivery to various in-basin markets as well as optionality for future delivery to downstream markets. The Company also entered into a marketing contract with Plains Midstream for production associated with the majority of its acreage in Loving County, Texas resulting in greater flow assurance and lower transportation cost. The agreement also provides optionality for sales to various other markets. Neither of these agreements contain minimum volume commitments.

Included below is a summary of the Company’s derivative contracts as of September 30, 2018. Subsequent to September 30, 2018 and through November 7, 2018, the Company entered into additional derivative contracts, including approximately 1.0 million barrels of WTI swaps that settle in 2020 at an average price of $68.66, approximately 1.8 million barrels of WTI swaps that settle in 2021 at an average price of $63.36, and approximately 0.8 million barrels of WTI swaps that settle in 2022 at an average price of $61.53.

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDAX

Adjusted EBITDAX is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by Rosehill’s management and external users of Rosehill’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, and amortization, accretion and impairment of oil and natural gas properties, (gains) losses on commodity derivatives excluding net cash receipts (payments) on settled commodity derivatives, gains and losses from the sale of assets, exploration costs, transaction costs incurred in connection with the Transaction and other non-cash operating items. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).

Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX is useful because it allows for more effective evaluation and comparison of Rosehill’s operating performance and results of operations from period to period without regard to the Company’s financing methods or capital structure. Rosehill excludes the items listed above from net income in arriving at Adjusted EBITDAX because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within the industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance or liquidity. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDAX are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDAX. Rosehill’s computations of Adjusted EBITDAX may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDAX to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
