BNK's President and Chief Executive Officer, Wolf Regener commented:
"Third Quarter results reflect our continued investment in Poland as we seek to discover new large shale gas reserves in that country as well as continued investment in our Oklahoma assets. In Poland we believe we are much closer to proving that shale gas will work in Europe with our Gapowo B-1 well results. We are looking forward to obtaining the approvals needed to drill the lateral to test the overpressured, high gas show intervals that we encountered. In the United States our production from the Woodford shale has begun increasing once again and we look forward to further evaluation of the mainly oil producing Caney/Sycamore lime interval in the same field. The Caney/Sycamore lime could add substantial reserves and it should generate much higher net backs since it is anticipated to be mainly oil, based on our early results.
In the third quarter the Company incurred a loss of $4.3 million versus a loss of $.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of 2012 the Company incurred a loss of $10.4 million versus a profit of $18,000 earned in the first nine months of 2011. In the third quarter oil and gas revenues before royalties were up $549,000 over 2nd quarter 2012, but declined $3.2 million in comparison to the third quarter 2011, due to a lower average natural gas prices and NGL prices coupled with reduced average total daily production. Other income in the third quarter declined $1.1 million due to lower management fee income.
For the comparative nine month periods oil and gas revenues before royalties declined $4.4 million due to lower natural gas and NGL prices. Other income in the comparative nine month period declined $2.5 million due to a sale of seismic data in 2011 and lower management fee income. Expenses increased $3.6 million between the comparative nine month periods due to higher general and administrative expenses resulting from the Company's expanding European operations.
Capital expenditures were $12.7 million in the quarter and $36.1 million through the first nine months of 2012 as we continue to explore for large shale gas reserves in Poland through our 100% owned Indiana Investments Sp z o. o. subsidiary ("Indiana") and further develop our Tishomingo assets both in operated and non-operated wells primarily operated by XTO Energy.
As recently announced we remain very encouraged with the data we have obtained from analyzing the core samples obtained from the Gapowo B-1 well in Poland. The data validates our geologic model of increasing thickness and organic content over the target interval and are consistent with analyses indicating over pressured permeable shales. We await approval to drill a lateral out of the Gapowo B-1 wellbore.
The Company's ongoing analysis in Germany has determined that a number of the targets that the Company is pursuing have a higher risk profile due to new data gathered. The Company will be deciding whether to continue pursuing a number of these projects in the coming months.
We are excited about the results of our testing of the Company operated horizontal Barnes 6-2H well targeting the Lower Caney and Upper Sycamore formations in Oklahoma. After fracture stimulation we are seeing production in the range of 170 to 250 barrels of equivalent oil per day with 80% of that production being crude oil after flowing back only 32% of the fracture stimulation fluid. Accordingly we expect to see higher production as flow back increases. Testing of the Sycamore and two lower zones of the Caney formation will confirm the production rates of each zone and the data obtained will be used to position future horizontal wells to maximize production rates.
We are exploring several options to secure new sources of working capital. These include up front cash proceeds obtained from a possible farm-out arrangement relating to certain of our European concessions, a potential increase in the borrowing base against our Oklahoma assets as well as potential proceeds from selling additional equity in the Company. We are confident that the combination of cash on hand, cash from operations and these potential new sources of working capital if successfully completed will be sufficient to meet the cash needs of the Company for the foreseeable future.
THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:
- Capital Expenditures increased 11% in the quarter to $12.7 million of which $7.1 million was spent in Poland relating to our Indiana concession and $5.0 million was spent in Oklahoma primarily to develop the Caney formation
- The Polish Ministry of Environment provided positive Environmental Decisions allowing the Company to drill slightly deeper at both the Miszewo T-1 and Gapowo B-1 wells
- The Company-operated Barnes 6-2H well in Oklahoma targeting the Lower Caney and Upper Sycamore formations (Mississippi Lime Equivalent) was fracture stimulated in 13 stages over an approximate 4,300 lateral
- Cash used from operating activities before changes in working capital and long-term receivables was a negative $234,000 in the quarter
- Loss of $4.3 million versus a loss of $.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 due to lower oil and gas revenues of $2.6 million and lower other income of $1.1 million
- Cash and working capital totaled $10.3 million and $7.9 million respectively at September 30, 2012
Third Quarter 2012 to Third Quarter 2011
Oil and gas revenues before royalties declined 40% or $3,191,000 in the quarter to $4,855,000. Oil revenues were $2,170,000 in the quarter versus $3,396,000 in the third quarter of 2011 or a decline of 36% as average oil production in the comparative quarters declined 39% due to normal declines from existing wells and not many new wells being drilled in 2012. Average crude oil prices increased 5% between quarters to an average of $90.03 a barrel. Natural gas revenues declined 48% to $902,000 as natural gas prices declined 37% between quarters while natural gas production declined 16%. Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) revenue declined 39% to $1,783,000 as average NGL prices declined 37% while NGL production between quarters declined 4%.
Other income declined $1,163,000 between quarters due to lower management fees relating to its role as Manager of Saponis Investments Sp z o.o. ("Saponis").
Exploration and evaluation expenses declined $209,000 as more pre-concession costs were incurred in the third quarter of 2011. Production and operating expenses declined 16% commensurate with the 17% decline in average daily production between quarters.
General and administrative expenses increased 21% or $677,000 to $3,940,000 primarily due to higher payroll and associated costs of $431,000 and higher professional fees.
Stock Based Compensation expense declined $295,000 to $210,000 due to fewer stock options being granted. Legal restructuring expenses declined $435,000 to $135,000 as the legal restructuring of the Company's European operations is nearing completion.
Finance Income declined $1,736,000 to $490,000 as 2011 results included a $1,797,000 unrealized gain on financial commodity contracts. Finance Expense declined $1,028,000 between quarters to $1,781,000 primarily due to lower foreign currency losses between quarters of $2,272,000 partially offset by an unrealized loss in the third quarter of 2012 of $1,091,000 on financial commodity contracts.
Cash declined $7,026,000 in the past three months due to $12,746,000 in capital expenditures, a loss net of non-cash charges in the third quarter of $441,000 offset by increased borrowings of $4,200,000 plus changes in working capital. The Company estimates that it incurred $5,700,000 in additions to Exploration and Evaluation Assets as a direct result of the requirement to obtain a positive Environmental Decision from the Polish Ministry of Environment to drill slightly deeper than allowed in the original concession applications.
Exploration and evaluation assets increased $8,247,000 in the quarter primarily relating to drilling and seismic costs pertaining to the Company's Indiana concession.
Trade and other payables increased $3,628,000 primarily resulting from costs incurred in Poland while loans and borrowings increased $4,261,000 due to increased borrowings of $4,200,000 in the quarter and amortization of debt issue costs.
FIRST NINE MONTHS 2012 VERSUS FIRST NINE MONTHS 2011 HIGHLIGHTS:
- Capital expenditures increased 56% or $12.9 million to $36.1 million of which $26.2 million relates to capital expenditures incurred at our Indiana concession, $8.6 million incurred in Oklahoma and $1.3 million in the rest of Europe
- Average production increased 3% to 1,547 barrels a day
- Average product prices declined 25%
- A net loss of $10.4 million was incurred versus a profit of $18,000 in 2011 primarily due to lower oil and gas revenues of $4.4 million, higher general and administrative expenses of $4.8 million and lower finance income of $.9 million
First Nine Months 2012 to First Nine Months 2011:
Oil and natural gas revenues before royalties declined 23% or $4,355,000 to $14,844,000. Oil revenues decreased 12% or $888,000 to $6,703,000 due to a 15% reduction in production as natural declines set in from higher activity levels in 2011 than 2012. Average crude oil prices increased 3% to $93.63 a barrel. Natural gas revenues declined 36% or $1,480,000 to $2,592,000 due to a 41% decline in average natural gas prices to $2.43 an mcf. Through nine months natural gas production has increased 8%. NGL revenues declined 26% or $1,989,000 to $5,547,000 due to average NGL prices declining 31%. NGL production has increased 7% between periods.

Exploration and evaluation expenses declined $1,283,000 to $310,000 due to the write-off of the investment in Black Warrior of $1,091,000 in 2011 and higher pre-concession costs last year.
Production and operating expenses increased 6% or $258,000 to $4,549,000 as average production increased 3% and current year operating expenses include $390,000 in workover expenses partially offset by the rebate of production taxes in Oklahoma.
Depletion and depreciation expense increased 21% or $906,000 to $5,205,000 primarily due to increased production applied on a higher depletable base.
General and administrative expenses increased $4,775,000 or 66% to $12,064,000 due to increased payroll and related costs of $2,173,000 and increased professional fees (legal, accounting, trust services, public relations and consulting) primarily related to our European operations of $2,202,000 and higher rent and office costs of $217,000.
Stock based compensation declined $1,110,000 or 62% to $685,000 due to fewer stock options being issued.
Finance income declined $864,000 to $1,260,000 primarily due to lower net gains on financial commodity contracts of $985,000. Finance expense declined $324,000 primarily due to reduced foreign exchange losses between periods of $675,000.
Cash has declined $30,211,000 since yearend 2011 primarily due to capital expenditures of $36,104,000, losses less non-cash charges of $4,107,000 net of $8,200,000 in new borrowing plus changes in working capital.

The information outlined above is extracted from and should be read in conjunction with the Company's unaudited financial statements for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and the related management's discussion and analysis thereof, copies of which are available under the Company's profile at http://www.sedar.com.
Netback per barrel and its components are calculated by dividing revenue, royalties and operating expenses by the Company's sales volume during the period. Netback per barrel is a non-IFRS measure but it is commonly used by oil and gas companies to illustrate the unit contribution of each barrel produced. This is a useful measure for investors to compare the performance of one entity with another. The non-IFRS measures referred to above do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.
The Company also uses the "barrels" (bbls) or "barrels of oil equivalent" (boe) reference in this report to reflect natural gas liquids and oil production and sales. All boe conversions are derived by converting gas to oil in the ratio of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil, representing the approximate energy equivalency.
