Battalion Oil Corp. announced financial and operating results for the second quarter 2022.

Key Highlights:

  • First five wells of 2022 capital program put online during quarter and continued one-rig program with spudding of next three well pad
  • Disciplined capital program mitigating inflation and supply chain disruption
  • Outstanding performance in drilling and completion operations fewer drilling days and higher pump efficiency than plan
  • Construction underway on recently announced strategic acid gas treating facility
  • Anticipate meaningful production and EBITDA growth in second half of 2022

Richard Little, the Company's CEO, commented, "The second quarter was all about building momentum as we pivoted towards production and cash flow growth. The first five wells of our 2022 capital program were brought online this quarter and with that comes increased exposure to a strong commodity price environment. While we are yet to see a full quarter of production from these wells, we are encouraged by the early results and the potential they bring from a cash flow perspective."

"We are also excited to have recently announced a landmark joint venture to develop a strategic acid gas treatment facility in Winkler County. This agreement is a critical piece of our story and is central to our strategy. Not only does it provide a comprehensive solution for our current and future gas processing needs, but it does so while significantly reducing our operating expenses, minimizing our capital exposure, and meaningfully reducing our environmental impact."

Mr. Little continued, "With our development program still clipping along with record efficiency and our hedge book continuously improving as we aim to lock in returns, we expect to generate substantial EBITDA growth in the second half of the year as we exit 2022 having delivered meaningful growth in daily production."

Results of Operations

Average daily net production and total operating revenue during the second quarter 2022 were 15,044 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("Boepd") (49% oil) and $101.5 million, respectively, as compared to production and revenue of 15,571 Boepd (57% oil) and $64.4 million, respectively, during the second quarter 2021. The increase in revenues year-over-year is primarily attributable to an approximate $28.75 per Boe increase in average realized prices (excluding the impact of hedges).

Excluding the impact of hedges, Battalion realized 101% of the average NYMEX oil price during the second quarter of 2022. Realized hedge losses totaled approximately $44.7 million during the second quarter 2022.

Lease operating and workover expense was $9.71 per Boe in the second quarter of 2022 and $7.72 per Boe in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted G&A was $2.90 per Boe in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $2.69 per Boe in the second quarter of 2021 (see Selected Operating Data table for additional information).

The Company reported net income to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2022 of $13.0 million and net income per diluted share of $0.79. After adjusting for selected items, the Company reported an adjusted net loss to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2022 of $0.2 million, or an adjusted net loss of $0.01 per diluted share (see Selected Item Review and Reconciliation for additional information). Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter ended June 30, 2022, was $18.2 million as compared to $14.1 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2021 (see Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table for additional information).
