DALLAS, August 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kosmos Energy Ltd. ("Kosmos" or the "Company") (NYSE: KOS) announced today its financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2021. For the quarter, the Company generated a net loss of $57 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. When adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results, the Company generated an adjusted net loss(1) of $10 million, or $0.03 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2021.

SECOND QUARTER 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net Production(2): 51,600 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) with sales of 66,200 boepd, resulting in a slight net overlift position

  • Post quarter end, successful completion of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) sale and lease back transaction

  • Successful reserve-based lending (RBL) amendment and extension

  • Revenues: $384 million, or $63.80 per boe (excluding the impact of derivative cash settlements)

  • Production expense: $116 million, or $19.24 per boe

  • General and administrative expenses: $22 million, $14 million cash expense and $8 million non-cash

  • Capital expenditures:

    • $68 million Base Business

    • $83 million Mauritania and Senegal

  • Net cash provided by operating activities: $289 million; Free cash flow(1): $115 million

Commenting on the Company’s second quarter 2021 performance, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Andrew G. Inglis said: "Kosmos delivered strong free cash flow in the second quarter. Through further debt reduction and EBITDAX growth, we expect leverage to continue to reduce through year-end 2021 and into 2022.

With strong cash generation, the successful RBL extension and the recently completed GTA FPSO transaction, Kosmos’ financial position has materially improved and we remain well positioned to execute our remaining financing plans later this year.

Operationally, we remain on track to grow production towards our year-end exit target of 60,000 boepd through our active infill drilling program.

With cash generative assets, a solid financial position and rising production, Kosmos is well positioned to generate significant shareholder value through the second half of the year and into 2022."

FINANCIAL UPDATE

In May 2021, Kosmos successfully completed an amendment and restatement of the RBL facility in conjunction with the spring redetermination. The amendment extended the facility by two years, with a final maturity of March 2027 and reduced the facility size to $1.25 billion. The borrowing base was finalized, with a more conservative price deck, at approximately $1.24 billion with $1.0 billion outstanding as of June 30, 2021.

The base business net capital expenditure for the second quarter of 2021 was approximately $68 million, in-line with Company guidance. Net capital expenditure related to Mauritania and Senegal in the second quarter was $83 million.

Kosmos exited the second quarter of 2021 with $2.1 billion of net debt(1) and available liquidity of approximately $0.8 billion. The decrease in net debt in the quarter was primarily driven by increased cash generation from higher sales volumes and improving realized oil prices.

OPERATIONAL UPDATE

Production

Total net production(2) in the second quarter of 2021 averaged approximately 51,600 boepd.

Ghana

Production in Ghana averaged approximately 21,900 barrels of oil per day (bopd) net in the second quarter of 2021. As forecast, Kosmos lifted three cargos from Ghana during the second quarter.

At Jubilee, production averaged approximately 70,900 bopd gross during the quarter. At TEN, production averaged approximately 35,000 bopd gross for the second quarter.

The first two wells in our four-well campaign were drilled in the quarter with the first Jubilee producer well (J-56P) completed and now online with Jubilee currently producing around 80,000 bopd. The Jubilee injector well (J-55W) is expected online later this quarter, which should further increase production.

The rig is then scheduled to drill and complete a TEN gas injector well and a second Jubilee producer well later in the year with the Jubilee producer well expected online around the end of the year.

The reliability of the Ghana production facilities continues to improve, with uptime of the Jubilee and TEN FPSOs averaging about 98% year-to-date. Consistently high levels of water injection (>200,000 barrels/day) and gas offtake from the Government of Ghana (>110 mmscf/day) are helping to optimize reservoir performance at Jubilee, which is expected to support long-term production levels.

U.S. Gulf of Mexico

Production in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico averaged approximately 20,400 boepd net (82% oil) during the second quarter.

In April, the Kodiak-3 infill well was brought online with one of two zones intermittently producing. The Company is currently working with partners to evaluate the best intervention options to enhance production from the well.

In late-July, Talos Energy (the operator) announced the successful completion and start-up of the Tornado-5 infill well. The well was expected to add around 8,000-10,000 boepd gross to field production and is performing at the top end of expectations. As the operator reported, injection rates in the structurally downdip Tornado injector well were increased, now injecting at a rate of over 30,000 barrels of water per day into the producing B-6 formation, providing pressure support to enhance overall production and recovery efficiency.

In July, the Company commenced drilling the Zora infrastructure-led exploration prospect located in Desoto Canyon Block 266 (37.5% working interest). The well encountered reservoir quality sands however did not find hydrocarbons. The well is currently being plugged and abandoned and the well results will be integrated into the ongoing evaluation of the surrounding area. The company expects to record approximately $11 million of exploration expense in the third quarter related to the well.

During the first half of the year, Kosmos worked with its partners on an appraisal plan for Winterfell, which is expected to begin with a well in the third quarter. The appraisal well is planned to evaluate the adjacent fault block to the northwest of the original discovery, which has the same seismic signature as Winterfell, with an exploration tail into a deeper horizon. The Winterfell discovery is located within tie back distance to several existing and planned host facilities.

Equatorial Guinea

Production in Equatorial Guinea averaged approximately 29,100 bopd gross and 9,400 bopd net in the second quarter of 2021. As forecast, Kosmos lifted 1.5 cargos from Equatorial Guinea during the quarter.

The Okume upgrade project is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter, contributing additional power, water injection and gas lift capacity necessary for further de-bottlenecking of the facilities and additional electrical submersible pumps (ESPs). In April 2021, one ESP conversion was completed with additional ESP conversions planned following completion of the Okume upgrade project.

The first of three infill wells in the Okume Complex was spudded in June 2021 with positive initial results. The rig will now move to the second well location and hookup has commenced for the first well. All three wells are expected online in the fourth quarter of 2021.

At Ceiba, a major infrastructure integrity project has been completed, which is expected to improve reliability and allow greater flexibility for gas lift to additional wells.

Mauritania & Senegal

The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim liquified natural gas (LNG) project has made steady progress year-to-date with the following milestones achieved in the second quarter and post quarter-end.

  • Floating LNG vessel: The four remaining sponsons have been integrated in the final dry dock

  • FPSO: The living quarters have been installed

  • Breakwater: seven caissons have now been transported offshore with three caissons installed

  • Subsea: All subsea trees have been constructed

As reported today in a separate press release, Kosmos announced that the GTA FPSO sale and lease back transaction has been successfully completed. Following the closing of this transaction, the Company will now work to complete the re-financing of the National Oil Company loans.

(1) A Non-GAAP measure, see attached reconciliation of non-GAAP measure
(2) Production means net entitlement volumes. In Ghana and Equatorial Guinea, this means those volumes net to Kosmos' working interest or participating interest and net of royalty or production sharing contract effect. In the Gulf of Mexico, this means those volumes net to Kosmos' working interest and net of royalty.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDAX, Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) per share, free cash flow, and net debt are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used by management and external users of the Company's consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines EBITDAX as Net income (loss) plus (i) exploration expense, (ii) depletion, depreciation and amortization expense, (iii) equity based compensation expense, (iv) unrealized (gain) loss on commodity derivatives (realized losses are deducted and realized gains are added back), (v) (gain) loss on sale of oil and gas properties, (vi) interest (income) expense, (vii) income taxes, (viii) loss on extinguishment of debt, (ix) doubtful accounts expense and (x) similar other material items which management believes affect the comparability of operating results. The Company defines Adjusted net income (loss) as Net income (loss) adjusted for certain items that impact the comparability of results. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less Oil and gas assets, Other property, and certain other items that may affect the comparability of results. The Company defines net debt as the sum of notes outstanding issued at par and borrowings on the RBL Facility, Corporate revolver, and GoM Term Loan less cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash.

We believe that EBITDAX, Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) per share, free cash flow, Net debt and other similar measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in the oil and gas sector and will provide investors with a useful tool for assessing the comparability between periods, among securities analysts, as well as company by company. EBITDAX, Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) per share, free cash flow, and net debt as presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
