Rosehill Resources Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results; Production Increases 50% Compared to First Quarter

HOUSTON, Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rosehill Resources Inc. (“Rosehill” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ROSE, ROSEW, ROSEU) today reported operational and financial results for the second quarter of 2018 and recent key items.

Second Quarter 2018 Highlights and Recent Key Items:

  • Grew average net production to 18,429 barrels of oil equivalent per day (“BOEPD”) (72% oil and 86% total liquids) for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 50% compared to the first quarter of 2018

  • Reported net income attributable to Rosehill of $9.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, which included a $15.2 million non-cash income tax benefit, partially offset by a $10.8 million non-cash, pre-tax loss on commodity derivative instruments

  • Delivered Adjusted EBITDAX of $49.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 41% over the first quarter of 2018

  • Reduced combined lease operating and cash general and administrative expenses per barrel of oil equivalent (“BOE”) by $2.84, or 21%, compared to first quarter of 2018

  • Increased the borrowing base under the Company’s credit facility to $210 million, up from $150 million

  • Spud nine operated horizontal wells and completed eight wells in the second quarter of 2018, with six total drilled and uncompleted (“DUC”) wells at June 30, 2018

  • Tatanka Federal 001H (LWCA), completed in Lea County, New Mexico, began flowing back on July 13 and reached an initial production rate during a 24 hour period of 1,532 BOEPD, 85% oil, or 361 BOEPD per 1,000 ft.

J.A. (Alan) Townsend, Rosehill’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “During the second quarter, we made impressive progress executing our plan for 2018, including reaching significant development milestones in our Southern Delaware area.  Along with aggressive cost management that resulted in a 21% decrease in combined lease operating and cash general and administrative expenses per BOE compared to the first quarter of 2018, we have continued our substantial growth in production and Adjusted EBITDAX.  For the second quarter, average net production and Adjusted EBITDAX increased 50% and 41%, respectively, quarter over quarter.

“We are currently operating one rig in our Northern Delaware area and one rig in our Southern Delaware area.  We are very encouraged by the logging and coring work we completed in the Southern Delaware area during the second quarter of 2018 and are well underway in optimizing our development plans for this acreage. In addition, we believe that the initial production results of our first horizontal well in Lea County, New Mexico, substantiate the significant value within this acreage. We are checking off objectives for 2018 that we laid out earlier in the year, and we will look to carry this positive momentum into the future as we grow and add value for our shareholders.”

Operational Results

In the second quarter of 2018, the Company’s net production averaged 18,429 BOEPD, a 50% increase compared to the average for the first quarter of 2018, comprised of 13,341 barrels of oil per day, 2,571 barrels of natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) per day and 15.1 million cubic feet of gas (“MMCF”) per day.  Rosehill operated two rigs, drilled nine gross horizontal wells and completed eight wells in the second quarter of 2018 and had six drilled uncompleted wells (“DUCs”) at the end of the second quarter of 2018.  The Company also drilled and completed two salt water disposal wells during the second quarter of 2018 in the Northern Delaware area that contributed to the overall per-unit decrease in lease operating expense.

Rosehill expects production increases for the remainder of the year. This increase is expected to be driven by an inventory of seven wells located on the Weber lease in the Northern Delaware area scheduled to be turned to sales in the third quarter of 2018 and by contributions from the remainder of its development program, including results from the Southern Delaware area.

The Tatanka Federal 001H well, located in Lea County, New Mexico, began flowing back in July and reached an IP 24 of 1,532 BOEPD, 85% oil, or 368 BOEPD per 1,000 ft., and produced from the Lower Wolfcamp A formation.  In the second quarter, the Company began flowback on a three well pad on the Z&T 42 lease in Loving County, with all three wells producing from the 2nd Bone Springs formation.  These wells reached a cumulative IP 30 of over 3,000 BOEPD, 74% oil, 225 BOEPD per 1,000 ft.

Financial Results

For the second quarter of 2018, the Company reported net income attributable to Rosehill of $9.2 million as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2018. The second quarter of 2018 included a $15.2 million non-cash income tax benefit primarily due to the allocation of profits and losses to Rosehill and its noncontrolling interest, partially offset by a $10.8 million non-cash, pre-tax loss on commodity derivative instruments. The first quarter 2018 included a $18.2 million non-cash, pre-tax loss on commodity derivative instruments.

Adjusted EBITDAX (a non-GAAP measure defined and reconciled below) totaled $49.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, as compared to $34.9 million in the first quarter of 2018. This increase of 41% was driven primarily by higher production and lower per-unit operating expenses.

For the second quarter of 2018, average realized prices (all prices excluding the effects of derivatives) were $60.18 per barrel of oil, $1.68 per Mcf of natural gas and $22.04 per barrel of NGLs, resulting in a total equivalent price of $48.02 per BOE, down 5% from the first quarter of 2018.

Rosehill’s cash operating costs for the second quarter of 2018 were $13.34 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.  Second quarter cash operating costs per BOE decreased 18% as compared to first quarter, primarily attributable to reduced LOE and G&A.

During the second quarter of 2018, Rosehill incurred capital costs, excluding asset retirement costs, of $108.2 million, which included $29.3 million and $14.3 million related to facilities and leasehold acquisition, respectively.

Capital Structure and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2018, Rosehill had $13 million in cash on hand, $239 million in long-term debt, $83 million in Series A convertible preferred stock and $148 million in Series B redeemable preferred stock.  As of June 30, 2018, total liquidity was approximately $128 million which included cash on hand, approximately $65 million of availability under the revolving credit facility (see update below) and the Company’s ability to issue an additional $50 million shares of Series B preferred stock.

Credit Facility Update

On June 29, 2018, the borrowing base under the Company's revolving credit facility increased from $150 million to $210 million. The borrowing base was evaluated using reserve data as of June 1, 2018.  The Company’s borrowing base on June 1, 2018 primarily consisted of proved reserves associated with its Northern Delaware assets since the Southern Delaware area is still in the early stages of development.

Development Update

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company spud four wells in the Southern Delaware area, increasing total wells spud to five during 2018, which includes a well spud in July 2018.  The Company completed one of the four wells in July and is currently flowing back that well with initial production results expected in the third quarter of 2018.  The Company performed extensive logging and coring on the first four delineation wells drilled in the Southern Delaware area and plans to use the petrophysical and geological data obtained to optimize the development plan for this area, including defining landing targets and horizontal well directions.  The results to date have established the presence of extensive natural fracture networks and identified potential new targets in the Bone Springs formation.  As previously announced, the Company is participating in a new 3D seismic survey that will further help refine development plans and expects to obtain the results in the third quarter of 2018.

For the remainder of the year, the Company expects to generally keep one rig operating in the Northern Delaware area and one rig operating in the Southern Delaware area.  Rosehill now expects to drill 34 to 38 new wells and complete 34 to 38 of those wells in 2018, comprised of 24 to 26 wells drilled and 28 to 30 completed in the Northern Delaware area and 10 to 12 wells drilled and six to eight completed in the Southern Delaware area.  In the Southern Delaware area, the Company is projecting approximately four extended lateral wells greater than 7,000 feet in 2018, with the remaining wells being drilled with lateral lengths of 5,000 feet.

The Company acquired an additional 420 net acres in the Southern Delaware area during the second quarter of 2018 at an average cost of $15,000 per acre.  In addition to the leasehold acquisitions, the Company continues to acquire royalty interests under its leasehold position in the Southern Delaware area in order to increase its net revenue interest.  With the flowback of the Tatanka Federal 001H well, the Company’s Northern Delaware acreage is now 100% held by production.  For the Southern Delaware area, it is estimated the current acreage could be held by production from the completion of eight to ten wells by 2020.

Infrastructure & Hedging Update

The Company continued to make enhancements to its midstream and marketing arrangements in the second quarter of 2018. The Company entered into an agreement for pipeline transportation and marketing of oil production from its Weber lease in the Northern Delaware area. Additionally, the Company is evaluating proposals for pipeline transportation of its oil production in Lea County, New Mexico.  In the Southern Delaware area, the buildout of the Company’s gathering system by Brazos Midstream is well underway and the Company expects to enter into agreements for intra-basin transportation and marketing services for its oil production in the third quarter of 2018.

Included below is a summary of the Company’s derivative contracts as of June 30, 2018.  Subsequent to June 30, 2018 and through August 6, 2018, the Company entered into additional derivative contracts, including approximately 1.6 million barrels of Midland Cushing basis swaps that settle in 2019.  Including these new contracts, the Company now has Midland Cushing basis swaps protecting approximately 4.8 million barrels of 2019 production at an average basis discount of $4.93.  In addition, the Company entered into three-way collar oil derivatives on approximately 650,000 and 700,000 barrels covering 2019 and 2020, respectively.

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.
