KOSMOS ENERGY ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER 2018 RESULTS

 

DALLAS--May 8, 2018-- Kosmos Energy Ltd. ("Kosmos") (NYSE: KOS) announced today financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2018. For the first quarter of 2018, the Company generated a net loss of $50.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share as compared to net loss of $28.8 million or $0.07 per diluted share in the same period last year. When adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results, the Company generated an adjusted net loss(1) of $23.2 million or $0.06 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2018.

 

"Kosmos is off to a good start in 2018 across all three areas of our business," said Andrew G. Inglis, chairman and chief executive officer. "Strong and growing production from our high-margin assets in Ghana and Equatorial Guinea continues to generate significant free cash flow, underpinning our solid financial position. The Tortue gas development, which represents the next phase of major production growth for Kosmos, continues to move forward at pace with all FEED contracts now awarded and a clear path to FID around year end. In addition, we have a balanced exploration portfolio with multiple, visible opportunities in proven, emerging, and frontier basins, including two exploration wells offshore Suriname this year."

 

First quarter 2018 oil revenues were $127.2 million versus $103.4 million in the same quarter of 2017, on sales of 1.9 million barrels of oil in 2018 as compared to 2.0 million barrels in 2017. Including the impact of the Company's hedging program, hedged revenue was $55.56 per barrel of oil sold in the first quarter of 2018. At the end of the quarter, the Company was in a net underlift position of approximately 0.8 million barrels of oil.

 

Production expense for the first quarter was $47 million, or $24.18 per barrel, versus $20 million, or $10.06 per barrel, in the first quarter of 2017. Production expense per barrel increased in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter a year ago primarily related to TEN, which has a higher operating cost than Jubilee, and because Kosmos did not have a TEN lifting during the three months ended March 31, 2017. In addition, the operator accelerated workover activity into the first quarter of 2018, while there were no workovers performed in first quarter of 2017.

 

Exploration expenses totaled $21 million for the first quarter, and was primarily related to ongoing seismic and geologic and geophysical costs.

 

Depletion and depreciation expense for the quarter was $54 million, or $28.06 per barrel. This was an increase from $17.70 per barrel in the first quarter of 2017, and reflects the heavier weighting of TEN cargos to the total number of cargos in the current quarter.

 

General and administrative expenses were $22 million during the first quarter. This amount includes approximately $14 million in cash expense and $8 million in non-cash equity based compensation expense.

 

First quarter results included a mark-to-market loss of $38 million related to the Company's oil derivative contracts. At March 31, 2018, the Company's hedging position had a total commodity net liability value of $116 million. As of the quarter end and including recently executed hedges, Kosmos had approximately 19 million barrels of oil hedged covering 2018 and 2019.

 

Gain on equity method investments, net during the first quarter was approximately $19 million and represents Kosmos' 50 percent ownership of our equity method investment in Kosmos Trident International Petroleum Inc. (KTIPI), which holds our interests in Equatorial Guinea. Under the equity method of accounting, Kosmos only recognizes its share of the adjusted net income of KTIPI, including basis difference amortization, which is recorded in the Gain on equity method investments, net in the consolidated statement of operations. Year to date through the end of April, the assets have delivered $88 million of cash dividend distributions to Kosmos.

 

Total capital expenditures in the first quarter were $58 million.

 

Kosmos exited the first quarter of 2018 with approximately $1.3 billion of liquidity and $1,069 million of net debt. In early February 2018, Kosmos refinanced its reserve based lending facility (RBL), which has been increased to $1.5 billion, up from $1.3 billion.

 

Operational Update

 

Ghana

 

During the first quarter of 2018, gross sales volumes from Ghana averaged approximately 132,400 barrels of oil per day (bopd), including volumes from the Jubilee and TEN fields.

 

At Jubilee, gross production averaged approximately 63,800 barrels of oil per day. The Jubilee turret remediation work is progressing as planned with the stabilization shutdown being conducted in two phases, the first of which is complete and oil production is back online. The second phase is expected to commence during the second quarter of 2018, and it is anticipated that oil production will be offline for around two weeks as a consequence of this shutdown. It is anticipated that the gas system will be shut-in for slightly longer to complete non-turret related maintenance. We now expect the rotation of the vessel to take place around the end of 2018 with minimal impact to production in 2018.

 

Gross production from TEN in the first quarter averaged approximately 68,600 bopd.

 

With drilling now resumed, the focus in Ghana has turned to growing production across Jubilee and TEN. In March, the Maersk Venturer drillship arrived in Ghana and commenced operations. In 2018, the partnership plans to drill and complete four producers, including two each at Jubilee and TEN, and complete a water injector at Jubilee. The Ntomme-5 well at TEN is the first well scheduled to be placed on production, anticipated in early July. Drilling activity at TEN is expected to allow production to increase towards the FPSO capacity of 80,000 bopd. Kosmos and its partners are continuing to evaluate the addition of a second rig, which should allow drilling and completion operations to be accelerated.

 

Equatorial Guinea

 

Gross oil production from the Ceiba Field and Okume Complex averaged over 47,000 bopd during the first quarter of 2018, exceeding the full year 2018 forecast of 43,000 barrels per day. First quarter production resulted in four cargo liftings net to KTIPI, or two cargos net to Kosmos' 50 percent interest in KTIPI.

 

Suriname

 

In April 2018, Kosmos began drilling the Anapai-1 exploration well targeting an early Cretaceous structural-stratigraphic trap in Block 45, offshore Suriname. Well operations are currently ongoing at this time with results expected later this month.

 

Portfolio Additions

 

As part of the alliance with BP, in the first quarter Kosmos entered into petroleum contracts covering Blocks 10 and 13 offshore Sao Tome and Principe. Kosmos holds a 35 percent participating interest in the blocks and the operator, BP, holds a 50 percent participating interest. The national oil company, ANP-STP, has a 15 percent interest in the blocks.

 

Inter-Governmental Cooperation Agreement

 

In February 2018, the governments of Mauritania and Senegal signed an Inter-Governmental Cooperation Agreement (ICA) which enables the development of the cross-border Tortue natural gas field to continue moving forward. With this agreement in place and all Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contracts now awarded by the operator, Kosmos expects a final investment decision for the Greater Tortue project around the end of 2018 and are aiming for first gas in late 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

EBITDAX, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted net income (loss) per share are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used by management and external users of the Company's consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines EBITDAX as net income (loss) plus (i) exploration expense, (ii) depletion, depreciation and amortization expense, (iii) equitybased compensation expense, (iv) unrealized (gain) loss on commodity derivatives (realized losses are deducted and realized gains are added back), (v) (gain) loss on sale of oil and gas properties, (vi) interest (income) expense, (vii) income taxes, (viii) loss on extinguishment of debt, (ix) doubtful accounts expense and (x) similar other material items which management believes affect the comparability of operating results. The Facility EBITDAX definition includes 50% of the EBITDAX adjustments of Kosmos-Trident International Petroleum Inc.  The Company defines adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss) after adjusting for the impact of certain non-cash and non-recurring items, including non-cash changes in the fair value of derivative instruments, cash settlements on commodity derivatives, gain on sale of assets, and other similar non-cash and non-recurring charges, and then the non-cash and related tax impacts in the same period.

 

We believe that EBITDAX, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted net income (loss) per share and other similar measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in the oil and gas sector and will provide investors with a useful tool for assessing the comparability between periods, among securities analysts, as well as company by company. Because EBITDAX, Adjusted net income (loss), and Adjusted net income (loss) per share excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income, these measures as presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
