Atlantic Petroleum Half Year 2019 Interim Report

Consolidated Interim Half Year 2019 Report

Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, 2019-08-30 -- P/F Atlantic Petroleum (NASDAQ Copenhagen: ATLA DKK & Oslo Stock Exchange: ATLA NOK) today posts its 2nd quarter (Half-Year) results for 2019. This announcement should be read in conjunction with Atlantic Petroleum’s Consolidated Interim Report, which is released separately and is available via the Company’s website: www.petroleum.fo.


  • Net loss: DKK 17.4MM (Q1: DKK 2.9MM)
  • Gross profit was DKK 0.0MM (Q1: DKK 0.0MM)
  • Operating loss was DKK 4.0MM (Q1: DKK 2.4MM)
  • Net assets/share-holders equity was DKK 54.0MM (Q1: DKK 78.1MM)
  • Bank debt was DKK 52.4MM (Q1: DKK 52.3MM)
  • G&A cost was DKK 3.8MM (Q1: DKK 2.2MM)

Whilst the expectation to Orlando reserves remain within the expected envelope, the restricted field production at around 5,000 bopd, means that there has been a need to re-evaluate and downgrade the Orlando asset value by DKK 17.2MM due to the time value of money. Due to this downgrade Atlantic Petroleum now expects a net loss in 2019.

Mark T. Højgaard, CEO of Atlantic Petroleum said:

“Getting production revenue from the Orlando field in the next quarter will be an important milestone for Atlantic Petroleum. The cashflow will be instrumental in restructuring the debt and in being able to add new assets to our asset portfolio."
