Oasis Petroleum Inc. Announces Quarter Ended March 31, 2019 Earnings

HOUSTON, May 7, 2019/PRNewswire / -- Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NYSE: OAS) ('Oasis' or the 'Company') today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019and provided an operational update.

Recent Highlights:

  • Delivered production during the first quarter of 2019 of 91.7 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day ('MBoepd'), an increase of approximately 3.9% from the fourth quarter of 2018 and 3.6% above midpoint guidance. Crude oil production of 66.0 thousand barrels of oil per day ('MBopd') was approximately 2.2% above midpoint guidance.
  • Completed and placed on production 15 gross (9.2 net) operated wells, including 12 gross (7.1 net) operated wells in the WillistonBasin and 3 gross (2.0 net) operated wells in the DelawareBasin, in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Improved crude oil differentials to $1.30off of NYMEX West Texas Intermediate crude oil index price ('NYMEX WTI') in the first quarter of 2019, a significant improvement from the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Oasis's midstream subsidiary, Oasis Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: OMP) ('OMP'), continued to ramp up utilization of its second natural gas plant in Wild Basin. The completion of the second natural gas plant makes OMP the second largest natural gas processor in North Dakota.
  • Delivered net cash provided by operating activities of $174.9 millionand Adjusted EBITDA of $269.3 millionfor the first quarter of 2019. For a definition of Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) including non-controlling interests and net cash provided by operating activities, see 'Non-GAAP Financial Measures' below.

'Oasis delivered a strong start to 2019, exceeding our volume expectations while maintaining capital discipline,' said Thomas B. Nusz, Oasis's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. 'Our solid execution gives us confidence we can hit or exceed our operational targets, and generate free cash flow at the E&P business. In the Williston, our deep inventory and emphasis on operating efficiency supports rapid growth in the Delawareand overall E&P free cash flow. In the Delaware, well performance remains impressive, and we continue to advance our understanding of the subsurface as we prepare for full-field development. Oasis Midstream Services performed well over the quarter as internally controlled infrastructure supported flow assurance, reduced costs and provided access to liquid marketing points. Our strategy continues to serve us well as Oasis is built to withstand and prosper through volatile commodity prices.'

Financial and Operational Update and Outlook

  • WillistonBasin production averaged 85.6 MBoepd and DelawareBasin production averaged 6.1 MBoepd during the first quarter of 2019. Oasis continues to expect volumes to range between 86.0 MBoepd and 91.0 MBoepd for the remainder of the year and the average oil production percentage to be approximately 72% over 2019 with 71% in the fourth quarter.
  • Differentials entered the year wider and quickly narrowed, and Oasis differentials averaged $1.30per barrel off of the NYMEX WTI for the first quarter of 2019. Oasis expects differentials to remain between $1.50and $3.50per barrel in 2019, as the Company has experienced modest widening in WillistonBasin and DelawareBasin differentials in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Oasis delivered more barrels down to the Gulf Coast from the WillistonBasin on the Dakota Access Pipeline, which was the primary driver of the increase in marketing, transportation and gathering expenses ('MT&G') to $3.96per barrel of oil equivalent ('Boe'), which excludes non-cash valuation changes on pipeline imbalances, during the first quarter of 2019. The Company expects this trend to continue and has updated its guidance on MT&G for the full year to $3.50to $4.50per Boe.
  • Lease operating expenses ('LOE') averaged $7.08per Boe in the first quarter of 2019, towards the low end of the Company's $7.00to $8.00per Boe guidance range. Oasis expects to manage LOE between $7.00and $7.75per Boe for the remainder of the year.
  • Capital expenditures ('CapEx') of $226.8 millionwere in line with the Company's first quarter 2019 plan for both the exploration and production ('E&P') and midstream businesses. Oasis delivered positive free cash flow from its E&P business during the first quarter of 2019. The Company continues to expect E&P and other CapEx to range between $540 millionand $560 millionin 2019. Projections for free cash flow at both $50and $60WTI can be found on page seven of the Company's investor presentation.

Midstream Update

  • The Boards of Directors of Oasis and OMP GP LLC, OMP's general partner, have approved entering into acreage dedications and midstream services arrangements in the DelawareBasin on terms similar to the existing commercial arrangements between Oasis and OMP in the WillistonBasin (the 'Delaware Midstream Opportunity'). Final agreements have not been executed.
  • Oasis expects to dedicate to OMP certain acreage representing areas in and around its DelawareBasin position that is currently undedicated to OMP for crude oil and produced water infrastructure development. OMP expects to spend an additional $53 millionto $57 millionin 2019 on such infrastructure build-out, including purchases from Oasis for existing midstream assets in the DelawareBasin.
  • OMP Operating LLC ('OMP Operating'), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of OMP, will form a new development company called Panther DevCo LLC in the DelawareBasin, which will be 100% owned by OMP Operating.
  • Oasis is continuing to work with third parties for gas infrastructure and expects to provide an update in the coming months on the outcome of the selection process.
  • OMP continues to exceed expectations in the WillistonBasin. More details on OMP's performance in the WillistonBasin and the Delaware Midstream Opportunity can be found in OMP's first quarter 2019 press release issued on May 7, 2019available on OMP's website at www.oasismidstream.com.
  • With the increased CapEx in the DelawareBasin, total gross CapEx for midstream is now expected to range between $195 millionand $219 millionand net CapEx from Oasis attributable to its retained interest is now expected to range between $11 millionand $13 million.

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, crude oil revenues, purchased oil and gas sales and purchased oil and gas expenses have been revised as described in Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements below.

(4)

For the fourth quarter of 2018, midstream revenues and midstream expenses have been adjusted to include $1.5 million and $0.8 million, respectively, for certain natural gas product sales and expenses, which were previously recognized in purchased oil and gas sales and purchased oil and gas expenses on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

(6)

Excludes non-cash valuation charges on pipeline imbalances.

G&A totaled $34.5 millionin the first quarter of 2019, $27.9 millionin the first quarter of 2018 and $30.3 millionin the fourth quarter of 2018. Amortization of equity-based compensation, which is included in G&A, was $9.0 million, or $1.09per Boe, in the first quarter of 2019 as compared to $6.8 million, or $0.98per Boe, in the first quarter of 2018 and $7.7 million, or $0.95per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2018. G&A for the Company's E&P segment totaled $27.5 millionin the first quarter of 2019, $23.5 millionin the first quarter of 2018 and $25.1 millionin the fourth quarter of 2018.

MT&G, excluding non-cash valuation charges on pipeline imbalances, increased $11.9 millionto $32.7 millionin the first quarter of 2019, as compared to $20.8 millionin the first quarter of 2018, primarily attributable to higher crude oil gathering and transportation expenses related to an increase in volumes being transported on the Dakota Access Pipeline to market the Company's equity barrels, which resulted in improved price realizations. MT&G, excluding non-cash valuation charges on pipeline imbalances, increased $3.8 millionas compared to $28.9 millionin the fourth quarter of 2018 primarily due to the higher aforementioned costs.

Interest expense was $44.5 millionfor the first quarter of 2019 as compared to $37.1 millionfor the first quarter of 2018 and $41.5 millionfor the fourth quarter of 2018. Capitalized interest totaled $2.8 millionfor the first quarter of 2019, $4.5 millionfor the first quarter of 2018 and $4.0 millionfor the fourth quarter of 2018. Cash Interest totaled $42.6 millionfor the first quarter of 2019, $37.2 millionfor the first quarter of 2018 and $40.5 millionfor the fourth quarter of 2018. For a definition of Cash Interest and a reconciliation of interest expense to Cash Interest, see 'Non-GAAP Financial Measures' below.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $3.7 million, resulting in a 3.3% effective tax rate as a percentage of its pre-tax loss for the quarter. The Company recorded an income tax expense of $69.5 million, resulting in a 23.5% effective tax rate as a percentage of its pre-tax income for the three months ended December 31, 2018.

For the first quarter of 2019, the Company reported net loss of $114.9 million, or $0.37per diluted share, as compared to a net income of $0.6 million, or $0.00per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2018. Excluding certain non-cash items and their tax effect, Adjusted Net Loss Attributable to Oasis (non-GAAP) was $6.9 million, or $0.02per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2019, as compared to Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Oasis of $30.2 million, or $0.10per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 was $269.3 million, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $232.9 millionfor the first quarter of 2018. For definitions of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis and Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, see 'Non-GAAP Financial Measures' below.

Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements. As previously disclosed in the Company's February press release, in connection with the preparation of the Company's 2018 Annual Report, the Company identified errors in its previously issued 2017 annual consolidated financial statements and in each of the interim periods within 2018 and 2017. These prior period errors related to the manner in which it accounted for certain crude oil purchase and sale arrangements. Specifically, although the Company previously presented the transactions on a net basis in oil and gas revenues, the Company was required to present these purchase and sale arrangements on a gross basis in purchased oil and gas expenses and purchased oil and gas sales. The correction of these errors had no effect on the reported consolidated net income (loss) attributable to Oasis or earnings (loss) attributable to Oasis per share data. Based on an analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors, the Company determined that the related impact was not material to its consolidated financial statements, and therefore, amendments of previously filed reports are not required.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2018, the Company revised the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations by increasing purchased oil and gas sales, purchased oil and gas expenses, and oil and gas revenues by $49.7 million, $52.6 millionand $2.9 million, respectively. The amounts presented herein reflect the impact of this revision.

As a result of the errors noted above, the Company identified a material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting as described in 'Management's report on internal control over financial reporting' in the Company's 2018 Annual Report under Part II, Item 9A. 'Controls and Procedures.' During the quarter ended March 31, 2019, management implemented its remediation plan and began testing the operating effectiveness of the remediated controls.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2019, Oasis had cash and cash equivalents of $15.4 million, total elected commitments under the Oasis credit facility of $1,350.0 millionand total elected commitments under the OMP credit facility of $400.0 million. In addition, Oasis had $493.0 millionof borrowings and $14.0 millionof outstanding letters of credit issued under the Oasis credit facility and $345.0 millionof borrowings under the OMP credit facility, resulting in a total unused borrowing base capacity of $898.0 millionfor both revolving credit facilities as of March 31, 2019.

On April 15, 2019, the lenders under the Oasis credit facility completed their regular semi-annual redetermination of the borrowing base scheduled for April 1, 2019, which reaffirmed the borrowing base and the aggregate elected commitment at $1,600.0 millionand $1,350.0 million, respectively. In connection with the April 1, 2019borrowing base redetermination, the Company entered into the First Amendment to the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement to the Oasis credit facility, dated April 15, 2019, which, among other things, incorporated the ability of the Company to request swingline loans subject to a swingline loans sublimit of $50.0 million. All other significant rates, terms and conditions of the Oasis credit facility remained the same. The next redetermination of the Oasis credit facility's borrowing base is scheduled for October 1, 2019.

On May 6, 2019, OMP entered into an amendment to its revolving credit facility to (i) increase the aggregate amount of commitments from $400.0 millionto $475.0 million; (ii) provide for the ability to further increase commitments to $675.0 million; and (iii) add a new lender to the bank group. OMP believes that it will have ample debt capacity to finance the infrastructure build-out related to the Delaware Midstream Opportunity, while managing leverage below 3.0x debt to current quarter annualized EBITDA and exiting 2019 with leverage below 2.5x.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Cash Interest is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Cash Interest as interest expense plus capitalized interest less amortization and write-offs of deferred financing costs and debt discounts included in interest expense. Cash Interest is not a measure of interest expense as determined by United Statesgenerally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.

E&P Cash G&A

E&P Cash G&A is defined as the total general and administrative expenses included in the Company's exploration and production segment less non-cash equity-based compensation expenses included in its exploration and production segment. E&P Cash G&A is not a measure of general and administrative expenses as determined by GAAP. Management believes that the presentation of E&P Cash G&A provides useful additional information to investors and analysts to assess the Company's operating costs in comparison to peers without regard to equity-based compensation programs, which can vary substantially from company to company.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of general and administrative expenses included in its exploration and production segment to the non-GAAP financial measure of E&P Cash G&A for the periods presented:

Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, exploration expenses and other similar non-cash or non-recurring charges. The Company defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Oasis less Cash Interest and CapEx, excluding capitalized interest. Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are not measures of net income (loss) or cash flows as determined by GAAP.

The following table presents reconciliations of the GAAP financial measures of net income (loss) including non-controlling interests and net cash provided by (used in) operating activities to the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow for the periods presented:

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis as net income (loss) after adjusting first for (1) the impact of certain non-cash items, including non-cash changes in the fair value of derivative instruments, impairment, and other similar non-cash charges, or non-recurring items, (2) the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests and (3) the non-cash and non-recurring items' impact on taxes based on the Company's effective tax rate applicable to those adjusting items in the same period. Adjusted Net Income (Loss)

Attributable to Oasis is not a measure of net income (loss) as determined by GAAP. The Company defines Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

The following table presents reconciliations of the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) attributable to Oasis to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis and the GAAP financial measure of diluted earnings (loss) attributable to Oasis per share to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share for the periods presented:
