  • The Company produced 5,220 and 5,761 Boe/d for the quarter and six month period ended 30 June 2016, respectively. The Company reaffirms its full year 2016 guidance of 7,000 - 7,500 Boe/d.

  • Cash operating costs continued to decline from $14.17/Boe for the year ended 31 December 2015 to $12.29/Boe for the six month period ended 30 June 2016.

Capital Investments

  • The Company entered into an agreement to acquire 5,050 acres in McMullen County, Texas prospective for the Eagle Ford with a final purchase price of $15.5 million. The transaction, which closed 29 July 2016, includes:

    • Expected production of 600-700 boe/d for the remainder of 2016;

    • Total proved reserves of 3.0 mmboe, 1.4 mmboe of which are attributed to producing wells;

    • 27 gross (9.6 net) wells, primarily operated by Sundance

  • Development expenditures of $10.9 million for the quarter ended 30 June 2016 were substantially funded by $10.3 million of Adjusted EBITDAX.

  • Participated in the completion of 11 gross (3.6 net) non-operated Eagle Ford wells in McMullen County that are expected to begin production in the 3rd quarter of 2016.

  • At quarter-end, the Company was completing 3 gross (2.7 net) Sundance-operated wells in the Greater Anadarko Basin and had 9 gross (6.8 net) horizontal wells, primarily in the Eagle Ford, scheduled for completion starting in the third quarter of 2016.

  • Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company entered into a re-fracturing partnership with Schlumberger Limited. 5 gross (4.7 net) Sundance-operated Eagle Ford wells will be re-fractured in Q3 and are expected to generate a 5-6x initial production uplift and a 40-50 percent increase in reserves for each well.

Liquidity and Capital Structure

  • Successfully raised A$80 million in a two tranche placement, resulting in pro forma cash of US$53 million as at 30 June 2016 (inclusive of net proceeds from the second tranche of US$51 million received in mid-July).

  • During the quarter ended 30 June 2016 the Company realized gains of $2.8 million on the settlement of commodity hedging contracts. The Company's realised oil price was $52.04/Bbl for the quarter inclusive of realised hedging gains of $9.69/Bbl.

Realised gain on hedging is not included in Sales Revenue.

The Company has continued to improve upon its cost structure and has reduced total cash costs per Boe (cash paid for LOE, production taxes and G&A) from $14.17/Boe for the year ended 31 December 2015 to $12.32/Boe in the second quarter of 2016. In absolute terms, total cash costs decreased $4.0 million (43.1 percent) to $5.3 million for the quarter ended 30 June 2016, compared to $9.3 million in the comparable period in the prior year.

Lease operating expenses (LOE)

LOE per BOE for the second quarter decreased to $5.48 as compared to $5.79 for the first quarter of 2016 and $6.96 for the year ended 31 December 2015. This improvement was achieved through several cost saving initiatives as well as on- going field-level improvements designed to continue to drive down LOE. Although most of these cost saving initiatives were in place for the majority of the quarter, additional electrification projects are expected to be completed during the remainder of 2016 which will further decrease LOE costs. In absolute terms, LOE decreased $2.5 million (51.6 percent) to $2.3 million for the quarter ended 30 June 2016, compared to $4.8 million in the comparable period in the prior year.

Production tax expense

Production tax expense as a percentage of revenue of 6.5 percent for the quarter ended 30 June 2016 was slightly lower than the 6.7 percent incurred for the year ended 31 December 2015.

Cash general and administrative costs (G&A)

Cash G&A per Boe decreased 25 percent to $4.86 per Boe for the quarter ended 30 June 2016 compared to the year ended 31 December 2015. The Company has implemented cost reductions to scale in its overhead cost structure to expected production levels. In absolute terms, cash G&A decreased by $1.0 million (32.0 percent) to $2.1 million for the quarter ended 30 June 2016, compared to $3.0 million in the comparable period in the prior year.

The Company achieved a higher Adjusted EBITDAX margin for the quarter (79.8 percent) as compared to the comparable quarter in the prior year (72.8 percent) despite a quarter-over-quarter revenue decline of $13.5 million. The margin improvement was driven by reductions in cash operating costs and an increase in realized gains on commodity hedging.
