Bonavista Energy loses $389.99-million in 2019

2020-02-13 20:32 ET - News Release

Mr. Jason Skehar reports


Bonavista Energy Corp. has released to its shareholders its financial and operating results for the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2019. The financial statements and notes, as well as management's discussion and analysis (MD&A), are available on SEDAR and on Bonavista's website.

Message to shareholders

Two thousand nineteen underscores another year committed to enhancing corporate sustainability through the consolidation and optimization of assets within the company's core area operations. Prudent and practical capital allocation, establishing a position in the Duvernay shale resource play, and environmental stewardship were all highlights throughout the year.

There is no better example than the acquisition completed on Dec. 4, 2019, of 48.4 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe) total proved and probable reserves (2P), and 8,340 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) of liquids rich natural gas and oil production. Located in the heart of Bonavista's operations in its west-central core area, this acquisition is valued at $316-million, the future net revenue attributable to the company's gross proved plus probable reserves discounted at a rate of 10 per cent, before deducting future income tax expenses (BTNPV10) inclusive of both active and inactive liability and based upon GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd.'s Jan. 1, 2020, price forecast effective as at Dec. 31, 2019. The addition of this low-decline, predictable production base complemented the company's existing operations while enhancing the economic quality of Bonavista's future development plans.

Two thousand nineteen firmly established Bonavista as a Duvernay player in the emerging liquids-rich play with the accumulation of over 211 net sections of prospective Duvernay mineral rights and the drilling of the company's first horizontal well in this resource play. Industry has been successfully delineating and developing this vast condensate-rich reservoir over the past few years, and the company looks forward to learning from these efforts and prudently allocating capital accordingly over the coming five years.

Bonavista replaced 138 per cent of 2019 total production volumes through the addition of 31.9 million boe of proved developed producing (PDP) reserves, inclusive of 12.2 million barrels (bbl) of PDP natural gas liquid (NGL) reserves equal to 195 per cent of 2019 natural gas liquids production with net capital expenditures amounting to 97 per cent of adjusted funds flow. Prudent capital allocation resulted in a 41-per-cent improvement in PDP finding, development and acquisition (FD&A) costs to $5.42 per boe and a 21-per-cent improvement in Bonavista's production efficiency to $10,290 per boe/d, notwithstanding allocating 29 per cent of Bonavista's capital program to land, seismic and facilities expenditures.

For 22 years, Bonavista has taken great pride in its environmental and social responsibilities as it protects and restores the environment in which it operates. Over the past decade, Bonavista has spent $198.3-million, equal to 6 per cent of its exploration and development (E&D) expenditures over this period, to reclaim and retire its inactive liabilities. In 2019, alone Bonavista spent $9.7-million managing its liabilities, largely allocated to the abandonment and reclamation of 81 and 25 wells, respectively. The estimated net present value of Bonavista's total decommissioning liability has been reduced over the course of 2019 by 14 per cent to $370.6-million at Dec. 31, 2019. On a final environmental note, in 2019, Bonavista invested $2.8-million on environmental risk mitigation, of which $1.6-million was allocated to various emission reduction technologies, eliminating nearly 65,000 tonnes of CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions from the company's operations.

Notwithstanding volatile and unpredictable commodity prices experienced throughout 2019, Bonavista successfully hedged and diversified the sales points of its natural gas portfolio, allowing the company to achieve a realized natural gas price premium of 37 per cent as compared with the average benchmark AECO natural gas price.

Bonavista's operating, financial, reserve and environmental stewardship highlights in 2019 once again prove the quality, resilience and sustainability of the company's asset base. The integrity and philosophy of Bonavista's capital allocation over the course of the past few tumultuous years in the Canadian energy sector will undoubtedly enhance the company's ability to create shareholder value in the future.

2019 fourth quarter financial and operating highlights:

  • Strategically enhanced Bonavista's operating presence in its west-central core area with a significant property acquisition that closed on Dec. 4, 2019. This acquisition added 8,340 boe/d, 23.8 million boe of PDP reserves and $177-million of PDP BTNPV10 value, inclusive of active and inactive liability, based upon GLJ's Jan. 1, 2020 price forecast.
  • Modestly improved daily production over the prior quarter to 62,923 boe/d despite the absence of any operated drilling activity throughout the quarter;
  • Enhanced oil and natural gas liquids weighting of Bonavista's production to 33 per cent in December from 31 per cent a year ago.
  • Adjusted funds flow per boe increased 37 per cent over the third quarter.

                                                                      Three months ended                   Years ended

Q4 2019 capital program

Net capital expenditures increased to $68.0-million in the quarter from $27.3-million in the third quarter of 2019. In the fourth quarter, Bonavista spent $12.0-million on exploration and development activities, down from $43.3-million spent in the prior quarter, to allow for the investment in the synergistic property acquisition that closed in the latter part of the quarter. Bonavista drilled 0.2 net well in the quarter as compared with 5.5 net wells in the third quarter of 2019. Remaining exploration and development expenditures were primarily focused on completion projects with two (1.5 net) wells completed in the fourth quarter in addition to continuing infrastructure projects.

Q4 2019 production

Production volumes for the quarter averaged 62,923 boe/d, consisting of 260 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, 18,003 boe/d of natural gas liquids and 1,587 barrels per day (bbl/d) of oil. Bonavista's 2019 fourth quarter production volumes were similar to that of the prior quarter at 62,437 boe/d despite the impact of disposition and acquisition activity. Non-core assets at Kaybob were disposed of in mid-September, which impacted fourth quarter average production by approximately 1,400 boe/d. The decrease was offset by incremental production volumes from the synergistic property acquisition that closed on Dec. 4, 2019, which positively impacted fourth quarter average production volumes by approximately 2,500 boe/d.

Q4 2019 production revenue, marketing and risk management

Production revenues for the fourth quarter, including $10.6-million of realized gains on financial instrument commodity contracts, were $111.3-million, or $19.23 per boe, representing a 22-per-cent increase on a per-barrel-of-oil-equivalent basis from prior quarter. Realized pricing on natural gas volumes in the quarter was $2.39 per thousand cubic feet (mcf), an 18-per-cent increase from the previous quarter and representing a 3-per-cent premium over the average AECO monthly index. Financial hedging accounted for a pricing premium of three cents per mcf and $6.07 per bbl for natural gas and natural gas liquids, respectively. Production revenues, excluding realized gains on financial instrument commodity contracts, were $100.7-million or $17.40 per boe.

Q4 2019 operating and transportation expenses

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter displayed a modest 3-per-cent increased to $5.76 per boe from $5.59 per boe in the third quarter. The slight increase in costs can largely be attributed to the acquisition of assets occurring late in the fourth quarter that currently have a higher operating cost structure per barrel of oil equivalent than the company's corporate average.

Transportation expenses were relatively unchanged between the fourth quarter and third quarter of 2019 at $1.37 per boe and $1.38 per boe, respectively. Similarly, absolute transportation costs of $7.9-million in the fourth quarter compared with $7.9-million in the third quarter.

Q4 2019 general, administrative and interest expenses

General and administrative expenses decreased 4 per cent in the current quarter to $5.0-million as compared with $5.2-million in the third quarter, due to lower salaries and benefits recorded in the quarter.

Interest expenses of $9.0-million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2019 were comparable with the $8.9-million recorded in the third quarter of 2019.

Q4 2019 net loss and comprehensive loss

For the fourth quarter, Bonavista reported a net loss and comprehensive loss of $44.2-million (17 cents per share, basic) compared with a net loss and comprehensive loss of $307.5-million ($1.16 per share, basic) reported in the prior quarter. The magnitude of the net loss in the prior quarter was largely due to a $278.0-million impairment charge recognized due to the sustained decline in the forward commodity benchmark prices for natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil. In the fourth quarter, an additional impairment charge of $14.3-million was recognized.

Q4 2019 cash flow from operating activities and adjusted funds flow

Cash flow from operating activities in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $48.0-million, a 29-per-cent increase from the third quarter of 2019 of $37.1-million, due to a 23-per-cent increase in production revenues, inclusive of gains on financial instrument commodity contracts, and on a per-barrel-of-oil-equivalent basis increased to $19.23 per boe from $15.78 per boe in the prior quarter. Adjusted funds flow for the quarter was $47.7-million as compared with $34.6 million in the previous quarter for similar reasons as discussed above.

2019 year in review

The quality and predictability of Bonavista's asset portfolio, combined with the discipline and determination of the company's technical teams to innovate, enhance development practices and execute on synergistic acquisition opportunities, have resulted in a 7-per-cent increase in 2P reserves with reserve additions of 54.1 million boe replacing 234 per cent of 2019 production while spending 97 per cent of adjusted funds flow. With continued emphasis on light oil and liquids-rich natural gas development, Bonavista increased oil and NGL PDP reserves by 12 per cent and replaced 183 per cent of 2019 oil and NGL production with PDP reserves.

2019 reserve highlights:

  • Replaced 234 per cent of 2019 production volumes with the addition of 54.1 million boe of 2P reserve additions;
  • Proved plus probable reserves growth of 7 per cent to 489.9 million boe;
  • Increased the composition of oil and NGL reserves to 159.2 million boe or 32 per cent of 2P reserves;
  • Invested $55.4-million for the acquisition of synergistic assets in Bonavista's west-central core area, adding 48.4 million boe of 2P reserves;
  • Proved producing FD&A costs improved 41 per cent to $5.42 per boe, including changes in future development capital (FDC), resulting in a proved producing FD&A recycle ratio of 1.9:1;
  • Replaced 406 per cent of 2019 NGL production with the addition of 25.4 million boe of 2P NGL reserve additions. Bonavista's corporate 2P NGL ratio increased 12 per cent or eight barrels per million cubic feet (mmcf) of sales gas, resulting in a 15-per-cent growth in 2P NGL reserves;
  • Notwithstanding continued price erosion in GLJ's price forecasts from year-end 2018 to 2019 and a constrained 2019 development program, Bonavista's 2P BTNPV10 reserves were valued by GLJ at $2,648 million, virtually unchanged from year-end 2018. When adjusted for net debt undeveloped land value and corporate decommissioning liabilities (inflated at 2 per cent and discounted at 10 per cent), Bonavista's net asset value is approximately $1,921-million, which is equal to $7.24 per share.

2019 independent reserves evaluation

Bonavista retained the independent qualified reserve evaluator GLJ to evaluate 100 per cent of its total light crude oil and medium crude oil (combined), heavy crude oil, conventional natural gas, and natural gas liquids reserves. The reserves data set forth in this news release are based upon the evaluation by GLJ with an effective date of Dec. 31, 2019, as contained in the reserve report of GLJ dated Feb. 3, 2020 (the 2019 GLJ reserve report).

GLJ commodity price forecasts have continued to erode for most products relative to a year ago. The GLJ pricing forecast for 2020 has experienced a 9-per-cent erosion in AECO pricing and a 5-per-cent decrease in Edmonton light oil prices. Ethane, propane and pentane pricing has also decreased by 11 per cent, 12 per cent and 2 per cent, respectively, while butane price has increased 30 per cent. Despite the continued challenges in both near-term and long-term price forecasts in addition to a restricted capital development program, Bonavista's net present value of future net revenue attributable to Bonavista's 2P BTNPV10 of $2,647.7-million was relatively unchanged when compared with the prior year at $2,635.1-million with a reserve life index of 18.8 years.

The 2019 GLJ reserve report includes the abandonment and reclamation liability associated with producing wells and future development locations but does not include inactive wells, facilities, pipelines and gathering systems. Based on Bonavista's decommissioning estimates, the liability of these items amount to $42.2-million inflated at 2 per cent and discounted at 10 per cent. This would modestly reduce 2P BTNPV10 value at Dec. 31, 2019, by 1.6 per cent to $2,605.5-million.

2020 outlook and capital plans

With the flip of the calendar page, a new year and a new decade begins, and with it a forecast that the first half of the coming decade will undoubtedly be more constructive than the last half of the previous one for the Canadian energy sector. Bonavista closed the books on 2019 and looks forward to a year that could bring a change in tone for the energy landscape in North America.

Having endured back to back years of challenging AECO pricing, largely due to a contracting imbalance of supply and demand on the NGTL system, the year ended on a relatively positive note with establishment of the temporary service protocol (TSP). With overwhelming support of the majority of stakeholders, including the government of Alberta, TSP has and will meaningfully improve the supply and demand fundamentals of operation on the NGTL system during times of construction and maintenance this summer, creating a more efficient market in the short term.

As for the long term, the $10-billion multiyear expansion of the NGTL system through Alberta and northeastern British Columbia is well under way. It is designed to increase transportation capacity and egress for Canadian producers resulting in a total demand increase of 3.5 billion cubic feet per day. In addition, the $6.6-billion Coastal GasLink pipeline project to connect to the LNG Canada plant in Kitimat, the first large-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Canada, has progressed with 32 per cent of the route cleared and construction under way across the 670-kilometre route. Notably, almost $1-billion in contracts have been awarded since the final investment decision (FID) of LNG Canada in October, 2018, leaving no doubt that this project, the largest privately financed infrastructure project in Canadian history, will fundamentally change the natural gas sector in Western Canada for decades to come.

With the extended period of critically low-natural-gas-pricing conditions, particularly through 2019, Canadian natural gas supplies fell for the first time in seven years. The reduced supply following 24 months of limited drilling activity and strengthened market access certainly sets a constructive foundation for Canadian natural gas as Bonavista moves into the coming decade. The supply story south of the border has followed a remarkably different path. Production rates for dry gas outpaced consumption growth in the United States and in conjunction with mild weather caused an inventory build through the winter months. NYMEX February natural gas futures fell to three-year lows earlier in the year and have not been able to fully recover in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Global prices have plunged on concerns that China's demand for all forms of energy will be severely impacted. These market anomalies, while seemingly quite dire over the short term, have not dampened longer-term sentiment meaningfully, but more so have been viewed as a correction in the supply demand imbalance that currently exists. Correspondingly, natural gas production growth is expected to slow in the U.S. in 2020 to be more aligned with demand growth in the coming three years.

Domestic demand in the U.S. has been driven in recent years by increasing base-load natural gas demand within the power generation sector, now feeding about 40 per cent of the market. Natural gas has been steadily replacing coal as a more cost-effective, cleaner energy source to meet growing electrical demand. This phenomenon is not isolated to the U.S. as Canada also marked a record year for natural gas power generation. In the U.S., the switch from coal to natural-gas-fired power generation has been a primary contributor to the U.S. significantly reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2019, speaking volumes to the value of natural gas as a clean, reliable source of energy to power the globe.

Alongside significant domestic demand growth, export demand has skyrocketed in the U.S. Recent start-ups of new natural gas pipelines built from the U.S. into Mexico have resulted in new daily highs of nearly six billion cubic feet per day late last year, doubling the export volumes seen four years ago. LNG expansion has provided for significantly more export capacity, having grown in that same four-year period from zero to nearly 10 billion cubic feet per day at present. Both LNG and Mexican export capacity is forecasted to continue to grow at unprecedented rates in the coming five years.

Given the global market conditions, Bonavista remains confident that there is a place at the table for Canadian energy. Forecasts for energy usage over the next decade show significant growth for all sources of energy, particularly natural gas. Bonavista is proud to represent Canada on the world stage to aid in the reduction of GHG emissions as the world transitions to cleaner energy and provides for more access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services. Undoubtedly, energy is an ingredient to each and every goal among the 17 sustainable development goals adopted by the general assembly of the United Nations. Specifically, goal seven of 17, affordable and clean energy, states: "Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential." Clean Canadian natural gas is clearly available in abundance to serve the world.

In 2019, Bonavista remained focused on enhancing sustainability in this continued tumultuous commodity price environment. Working ferociously to strengthen the company's core operating areas and remain active with acquisitions in a distressed merger and acquisition (M&A) market has underpinned Bonavista's success throughout the year. These efforts have created a more predictable and profitable asset portfolio built for reliability in any commodity price environment and destined to generate long-term value for Bonavista's shareholders.

Bonavista's business philosophy over the coming year will remain consistent with that of 2019, with a recurring focus on sustainability and building for the future. Bonavista's plan, initially, will be to spend within adjusted funds flow, targeting an E&D program of between $100-million and $120-million, the majority allocated to its west-central core area. Spending levels are designed to maintain production levels with those of 2019 and the goal is to generate excess adjusted funds flow for debt repayment. Bonavista continues to have continuing negotiations regarding its covenant relief process with both its noteholders and its banking syndicate, with the expectation of a successful resolution over the next few months.

Bonavista's capital program is designed to be sensitive to market conditions such that the company can adapt to preserve adjusted funds flow in any environment. Continued commodity price volatility will keep Bonavista agile and flexible with its capital allocation, and will undoubtedly lead to conservative organic spend levels as the company remains enrolled in the M&A market in its core areas. Bonavista fully expects the next 12 months will bring challenges and opportunities, however, it remains confident that its has built a resilient business philosophy to weather the continuing turbulence as it strengthens its foundation for growth in future years.

Bonavista thanks its employees for their commitment and dedication, its board of directors for its guidance, and its shareholders for their long-term support.
