Breitburn Energy Partners Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

LOS ANGELES--()--Breitburn Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:BBEP) today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter 2015.

Key Highlights

  • Increased total production to 5.1 MMBoe, a 57% increase from the first quarter of 2014 and a 21% increase from the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Increased Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to $148.6 million (including costs of $4.1 million for restructuring), a 26% increase from the first quarter of 2014 and a 17% increase from the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Reduced lease operating expenses by 9% to $19.81 per Boe in the first quarter of 2015 from $21.77 per Boe in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Announced a $1 billion strategic investment led by EIG Global Energy Partners, which was completed on April 8, 2015. Net proceeds were used to reduce borrowings under Breitburn's bank credit facility.
  • Amended bank credit facility to reset the borrowing base to $1.8 billion through April 2016, subject to limited exceptions.
  • Reported distributable cash flow of $60.7 million, or $0.282 per common unit, and distribution coverage ratio of 2.26x based on current monthly distribution of $0.04166 per common unit, or $0.50 per common unit on an annualized basis.

Management Commentary

Halbert S. Washburn, Breitburn’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We had a very solid first quarter, with Adjusted EBITDA, total production, and costs in line with our targets. The integration of QR Energy is going smoothly and our teams are doing a great job continuing to drive down both lease operating expenses and general and administrative costs. Our successful acquisitions strategy has given us an expanded and more diversified portfolio of development projects that deliver attractive returns even in the current commodity price environment. As a result, we expect to spend approximately half of our significantly reduced $200 million capital program on former QR Energy assets, and more than 90% of capital spending will be on assets we have acquired in the last three years. We also raised a substantial amount of capital during the quarter and used the proceeds to significantly reduce borrowings under our credit facility and greatly enhanced our liquidity position. Finally, we are on track to generate approximately $100 million of excess cash this year, which we plan to use to further reduce borrowings, and we currently have one of the strongest distribution coverage ratios in our peer group.”

First Quarter 2015 Operating and Financial Results Compared to Fourth Quarter 2014

  • Total production was 5,051 MBoe in the first quarter of 2015 compared to 4,170 MBoe in the fourth quarter of 2014. Average daily production was 56.1 MBoe/day in the first quarter of 2015 compared to 45.3 MBoe/day in the fourth quarter of 2014.
    • Oil production increased to 2,890 MBbl compared to 2,327 MBbl in the fourth quarter of 2014.
    • NGL production increased to 459 MBbl compared to 368 MBbl in the fourth quarter of 2014.
    • Natural gas production increased to 10,211 MMcf compared to 8,847 MMcf in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $148.6 million (including $4.1 million of restructuring costs) in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $127.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, a 17% increase. The increase was primarily due to higher commodity derivative instrument settlements and higher production, partially offset by lower sales revenue driven by lower commodity prices.
  • Net loss attributable to common unitholders was $63.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted common unit, in the first quarter of 2015, which includes non-cash impairment charges of approximately $59.1 million, or $0.28 per unit, compared to net income of $401.0 million, or $2.27 per diluted common unit, in the fourth quarter of 2014, which includes non-cash impairment charges of approximately $119.6 million, or $0.68 per unit.
  • Oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenues were $162.6 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $197.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, primarily due to lower realized oil, natural gas and NGL prices.
  • Lease operating expenses, which include district expenses, processing fees and transportation costs but exclude taxes, were $19.81 per Boe in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $21.77 per Boe in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • General and administrative expenses, excluding non-cash unit-based compensation costs, were $25.3 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $28.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Gains on commodity derivative instruments were $137.2 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to gains of $587.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, primarily due to a smaller decrease in oil and natural gas futures prices during the first quarter of 2015 compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Derivative instrument settlement receipts were $126.4 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to receipts of $62.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, primarily due to lower oil and natural gas prices.
  • NYMEX WTI oil spot prices averaged $48.49 per Bbl and Brent oil spot prices averaged $53.98 per Bbl in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $73.21 per Bbl and $76.43 per Bbl, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2014. Henry Hub natural gas spot prices averaged $2.90 per Mcf in the first quarter of 2014 compared to $3.78 per Mcf in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Average realized crude oil, NGL and natural gas prices, excluding the effects of commodity derivative settlements, averaged $43.62 per Bbl, $16.54 per Bbl and $3.05 per Mcf, respectively, in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $69.36 per Bbl, $26.38 per Bbl and $4.07 per Mcf, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Oil, NGL and natural gas capital expenditures were $73 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $113 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Distributable cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $60.7 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $43.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Impact of Derivative Instruments

Breitburn uses commodity derivative instruments to mitigate risks associated with commodity price volatility and to help maintain cash flows for operating activities, acquisitions, capital expenditures and distributions. Breitburn does not enter into derivative instruments for speculative trading purposes. Since Breitburn does not use hedge accounting to account for its derivative instruments, changes in the fair value of derivative instruments are recorded in Breitburn’s earnings during each reporting period. These non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives do not affect Adjusted EBITDA, cash flow from operations, distributable cash flow or Breitburn’s ability to pay cash distributions for the reporting periods presented.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release, including the financial tables and other supplemental information, including the reconciliations of certain non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) measures to their nearest comparable generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) measures, may be used periodically by management when discussing Breitburn’s financial results with investors and analysts, and they are also available at www.breitburn.com.

“Adjusted EBITDA” and “distributable cash flow” are among the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures such as net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities or any other GAAP measure of liquidity or financial performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance comparability to prior periods.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because management believes it provides additional information relative to the performance of Breitburn’s assets, without regard to financing methods or capital structure. Distributable cash flow is used by management as a tool to measure the cash distributions we could pay to our unitholders, and this financial measure indicates to investors whether or not we are generating cash flow at a level that can support our distribution rate to our unitholders. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other publicly traded partnerships or limited liability companies because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA or distributable cash flow in the same manner.

Adjusted EBITDA

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income (loss) and net cash flows from operating activities, our most directly comparable GAAP financial performance and liquidity measures, to Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated.
