Dear Friends and Investors
During the third quarter 2015, Tethys Oil passed yet another milestone. Average daily production during the third quarter exceeded 10,000 barrels of oil for the first time. Total production in the first nine months of 2015 is over 25% higher than in the first 9 month 2014 and amounted to 2,570,706 barrels of oil.
As we have said, our project remains robust even in today's oil price environment. Tethys Oil continues to yield positive financial results. In the third quarter, we report sales of MSEK 307. Net sales was up 16% quarter on quarter. Our EBITDA for the quarter amounted to MSEK 153, in line with the second quarter 2015. Our cash flow from operations amounted to MSEK 268, and our net result increased 32% quarter on quarter and amounted to MSEK 70. Our net cash stood at MSEK 485 as per 30 September 2015.
In the third quarter we sold more oil than we produced and our overlift position at the end of the quarter amounted to almost 130,000 barrels. We expect that a significant reduction of the overlift position, in combination with the lower oil prices, will affect sales and result in the fourth quarter 2015.
Operationally, the water injection programmes on our fields have been in focus during the third quarter. On the Farha South field, three additional water injection wells have been drilled and one more fault block has been hooked up to water injection. Three water injection wells were also drilled on the Shahd field, bringing the total injection wells up to five in the field. We are awaiting the result of the programme on the Shahd field with excitement. If successful, the water injection programme will have a significant impact both on the reserves and on production in the Shahd field.
We are also encouraged by the results from European operations onshore Lithuania. The Tidikas-1 exploration well on the Raseiniai licence encountered a combined oil column of almost 50 metres and flowed oil to surface during drill stem tests. We are looking forward to the results of the long term production tests of the well.
So stay with us - things continue to happen!
