Harvest Natural Resources Announces 2012 Third Quarter Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harvest Natural Resources, Inc. (NYSE: HNR) today announced 2012 third quarter net income and provided an operational update.

Harvest reported third quarter net income of approximately $5.8 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to earnings of $7.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the same period last year.  The third quarter 2012 results included exploration charges of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, and $1.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for transaction costs incurred related to the pending sale of our 32 percent interest in Petrodelta.  Additionally, during the third quarter, Harvest incurred $1.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in debt conversion expense and $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in discontinued operations related to income taxes.  Excluding the exploration charges, transaction costs, debt conversion expense, and discontinued operations charges, third quarter 2012 earnings would have been $10.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. 

Petrodelta reported net income during the third quarter of $45.7 million, as reported under International Financial Report Standards (IFRS), compared to $57.0 million for the same period in 2011.  Petrodelta's decrease in net income for the quarter was primarily due to higher operational costs of $14.2 million resulting from a 30 percent increase in salaries and related benefits retroactive to October 2011.  Harvest's 32 percent share of Petrodelta's net income for the third quarter as reported under U.S. GAAP was $16.2 million, compared to $14.8 million, for the same period one year ago.

Highlights for the third quarter of 2012 include:

Venezuela

  • During the third quarter of 2012, Petrodelta drilled and completed four wells and sold approximately 3.5 million barrels of oil (MMBO) for a daily average of approximately 38,173 barrels of oil per day (BOPD), an increase of 16 percent over the same period in 2011;
  • Of the four new wells successfully drilled, three were in the El Salto field with current total production from this field of approximately 16,500 BOPD; the fourth well was drilled in the Temblador field;
  • Petrodelta's current production rate is approximately 39,000 BOPD;
  • Two new drilling rigs, the modular rig PDV-48 and the PDV-86 are expected to start operations by the end of November 2012;
  • The 2012 projected average production rate is 37,000 BOPD, with capital expenditures projected at $200 million
  • Harvest and PT Pertamina (Persero) met in September 2012 to evaluate the progress toward the closing of the sale by Harvest of its interests in Venezuela.  Both parties agreed to continue pursuing the various approvals required to close the transaction.

Gabon

  • The semi-submersible drilling unit, the Scarabeo 3, is expected to spud the next exploration well in mid-November 2012.  This well will be drilled on the Tortue prospect targeting stacked pre-salt reservoirs.

Corporate

  • On October 12, 2012, Harvest sold $79.8 million aggregate principal amount of 11% senior unsecured notes due October 11, 2014;
  • Harvest has extinguished all of the senior unsecured convertible notes issued on February 17, 2010.

VENEZUELA

During the three months ended September 30, 2012, Petrodelta sold approximately 3.5 MMBO for a daily average of 38,173 BOPD, an increase of 16 percent over the same period in 2011 and 5 percent higher than the previous quarter.  Petrodelta sold 0.41 billion cubic feet (BCF) of natural gas for a daily average of 4.5 million cubic feet per day (MMCFD), decreasing 31 percent over the same period in 2011, and a decrease of 17 percent from the previous quarter.  Petrodelta's current production rate is approximately 39,000 BOPD.

During the third quarter of 2012, Petrodelta drilled and completed four development wells, three in the El Salto field and one in the Temblador field.  Currently, Petrodelta is operating two drilling rigs and one workover rig and is continuing with infrastructure enhancement projects in the El Salto and Temblador fields.

Two new drilling rigs are rigging up, the PDV-48 in the Isleno field and the PDV-86 in El Salto field; they are expected to begin drilling operations by the end of November 2012.  The current production from the Isleno field is approximately 1,960 BOPD and is being trucked to the Uracoa field.  Plans are underway to build a pipeline connection between the Isleno field and the main production facility at the Uracoa field.

Petrodelta's production for 2012 is projected to average approximately 37,000 BOPD.  The 2012 Petrodelta capital budget is expected to be approximately $200.0 million with a significant portion of that total related to infrastructure costs to support the further development of the Temblador and El Salto fields.  Petrodelta expects to drill 12 oil wells, and is anticipating finishing this year with five rigs on site with four new rigs, two already rigging up and two more arriving at the end of the fourth quarter.  The current plan is to retire one of the older rigs upon the arrival of the new rigs so that four of the anticipated five drilling rigs will be new modular rigs that are fit-for-purpose for Petrodelta's operations.

The average sales price for crude oil produced during the quarter was approximately $92.43 per barrel, compared to $100.62 per barrel during the third quarter of 2011.

As previously announced, Harvest and PT Pertamina (Persero) met in September 2012 to evaluate the progress toward the closing of the sale by Harvest of its interests in Venezuela and agreed to continue pursuing the various approvals required to close the transaction.

EXPLORATION AND OTHER ACTIVITIES

Dussafu Project - Gabon (Dussafu PSC)

Operational activities during the three months ended September 30, 2012, included completion of the processing of 545 square kilometers of seismic which was acquired in the fourth quarter of 2011 and well planning for the drilling of an exploration well in the fourth quarter.  The 3-D Pre-Stack Time Migration (PSTM) was completed in July 2012. A depth imaging project commenced in the third quarter with 3-D Pre-Stack Depth Migration (PSDM) of this Central 2011 survey and the 2005 M'Bya inboard survey, the project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2013. Well planning progressed to drill an exploration well in November of 2012 on the Tortue prospect targeting stacked pre-salt reservoirs with mean unrisked prospective resource of 62 MMBO.

The semi-submersible drilling unit, the Scarabeo 3, owned and operated by Saipem S.p.A, will be mobilized on location and is projected to spud in mid-November 2012.

Budong-Budong PSC – Indonesia

Operational activities during the three months ended September 30, 2012, included a review of geological and geophysical data obtained from the drilling of Lariang-1 (LG-1) and Karama-1 (KD-1) wells to upgrade the prospectivity of the block and to define a prospect for potential drilling in 2013.  Based on the multiple oil and gas shows encountered in both LG-1 and KD-1, an exploration program targeting the Pliocene and Miocene sands encountered in the previous two wells is being matured.  Operations completed remapping of both the Lariang and Karama Basins with eight prospects in the Lariang Basin and five prospects in the Karama Basin having been identified in the Pliocene, Middle-Late Miocene and Eocene sands.  The Joint Venture has high graded the Madjene prospect in the Lariang Basin as the preferred prospect for 2013 drilling with stacked Pliocene and Miocene mean unrisked prospective resource of 96 MMBO.

The initial exploration term of the Budong PSC expires on January 15, 2013.  In September 2012, the operator of the Budong PSC, on behalf of Harvest and the other co-venturer, submitted a request to BPMIGAS, Indonesia's oil and gas regulatory authority, under the terms of the Budong PSC for a four year extension of the initial six year exploration term of the Budong PSC.  The request for extension of the initial exploration term includes a firm exploration well in late 2013.  The extension of the initial exploration term will enable the joint venture to continue exploration activities on the Budong PSC.  The granting of such request for an extension of the initial exploration term may not be unreasonably withheld.

Oman Block 64 EPSA

Operational activities during the three months ended September 30, 2012, included post-well evaluation and review of geological and geophysical data obtained from the drilling of the Mafraq South-1 ("MFS-1") and Al Ghubar North-1 ("AGN-1") wells.  Work continues on Block 64 EPSA to mature other drilling opportunities for a possible exploration well in the Second Phase of the license.

A one year extension for the license has been granted until May 2013, at which time Harvest must decide whether to commit to the second phase of the license.

CORPORATE

On October 12, 2012, subsequent to the third quarter financial statements, Harvest sold $79.8 million aggregate principal amount of 11% senior unsecured notes due October 11, 2014, and warrants to purchase up to 686,761 shares of its common stock with an exercise price of $10.00 per share.  The warrants can be exercised at any time up until the three-year anniversary of the closing.  If all of the warrants were exercised, the impact on dilution of the common shares outstanding would be approximately 1.8 percent.

The notes were issued at a price of 96 percent of principal amount.  The purchase price of the notes was paid in cash, except for approximately $10.5 million in principal amount, which was exchanged by a single purchaser for a combination of approximately $6.0 million in face value of that purchaser's existing 8.25% senior convertible notes issued by the Company in 2010 and the value agreed to by the Company and the noteholder, that otherwise would have been attained by the noteholder had the noteholder converted the note into 1,059,751 shares of common stock; the remaining $3.0 million in face value of that convertible note was converted into shares of common stock under the terms of the indenture governing that convertible note.

The net cash proceeds of the offering to Harvest were approximately $63.5 million after deducting the issuance discount from the face value of the notes, placement fees, and other transaction costs.  Harvest intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to fund capital expenditures planned for Gabon and other potential projects, for working capital needs and general corporate purposes. 

Also, as of October 12, 2012, the Company has extinguished all the senior convertible notes and accrued interest due, which was originally issued on February 17, 2012.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

These measures are included due to the significant nature of Petrodelta's earnings to Harvest.  In this press release, Petrodelta's adjusted EBITDA disclosure is not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) and Petrodelta's financials are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of net income or cash flows from operating activities.  Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it provides additional information with respect to both the performance of our fundamental business activities as well as our ability to internally fund our future capital expenditures and working capital requirements.  We also believe that financial analysts commonly use adjusted EBITDA to analyze Petrodelta's performance. 

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, investment earnings, current income taxes, and certain non-cash items in the Company's statements of operations, including depreciation, depletion and amortization, accretion of asset retirement obligations, deferred income taxes, certain employee compensation charges and gains or losses from foreign exchange.  Although we present selected items that we consider in evaluating our performance, you should also be aware that the items presented do not represent all items that affect comparability between the periods presented.  Variations in our operating results are also caused by changes in volumes, prices, exchange rates and numerous other factors.  These types of variations are not separately identified in this release, but will be discussed, as applicable, in management's discussion and analysis of operating results in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income and cash flows from operating activities for the periods presented is included in the tables attached to this release.

Harvest will hold a conference call at 10:00 a.m. CST on Friday, November 9, 2012, during which management will discuss Harvest's 2012 third quarter results.  The conference leader will be James A. Edmiston, President and Chief Executive Officer.  To access the conference call, dial 800-309-1245 or 719-325-2302, five to ten minutes prior to the start time.  The conference identification number is 6817420.  A recording of the conference call will also be available for replay at 719-457-0820, passcode 6817420, through November 16, 2012.

This press release may contain projections and other forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  They include estimates and timing of expected oil and gas production, oil and gas reserve projections of future oil pricing, future expenses, planned capital expenditures, anticipated cash flow, timing and certainty of future transactions and our business strategy.  All statements other than statements of historical facts may constitute forward-looking statements.  Although Harvest believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to have been correct.  Actual results may differ materially from Harvest's expectations as a result of factors discussed in Harvest's 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K and other public filings.

Harvest may use certain terms such as resource base, contingent resources, prospective resources, probable reserves, possible reserves, non-proved reserves or other descriptions of volumes of reserves.  These estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved reserves and accordingly, are subject to substantially greater risk of being actually realized by the Company.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
