June 2022 Lancaster Field Data
1. The 205/21a-7z (“P7z”) well was not on production during June 2022
2. Expressed as total water produced divided by total fluid (oil and water) production
3. Pressure reported is the monthly minimum from well downhole gauges.
As of 16 July 2022, Lancaster was producing c.8,650 bopd from the P6 well alone with an associated water cut of c.46%.
There was no lifting of Lancaster crude in June. The next cargo is anticipated to be lifted later in July 2022.
As of 30 June 2022, the Company had net free cash(4) of $127 million compared to the last reported balance of $139 million as of 31 May 2022. $78.5 million of Convertible Bonds remain outstanding and are due to be repaid by 24 July 2022. Following the repayment, assuming oil prices remain at over $90/bbl, at the end of July the Company is forecasting to be holding net free cash in excess of $75 million. If oil prices for the July cargo are above $110/bbl, the net free cash forecast increases to be above $85 million.
4. Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, plus current financial trade and other receivables, current oil price derivatives, less current financial trade and other payables.
Following the repayment of the Convertible Bond, the Company intends to reduce the frequency of its production and financial updates to quarterly rather than monthly, being more in line with standard industry practice.
Antony Maris, CEO of Hurricane, commented:
“With another steady month of production, we now look beyond repayment of the bonds with a strong cash position and balance sheet. We believe that there are good investment opportunities ahead and the Company is well placed to deliver significant shareholder value.”
