Blue Dolphin Reports Third Quarter Financial Results And Provides Nixon Facility Operational Update

HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Dolphin Energy Company ("Blue Dolphin") announced condensed consolidated financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Blue Dolphin's primary asset is a crude oil processing facility located in Nixon, Texas (the "Nixon Facility"), which began operations on a reduced basis in February 2012.  The Nixon Facility operated for a total of 90 days for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and for a total of 238 days for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.  During the three months ended September 30, 2012, average throughput increased to approximately 10,500 bpd, or 70% of operating capacity, compared to approximately 8,900 bpd, or 59% of operating capacity, during the three months ended June 30, 2012.  Management anticipates that throughput levels at the Nixon Facility may approach operating capacity in the first half of 2013.  The Nixon Facility had no operations during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, Blue Dolphin reported a net loss of $762,761 on total revenue of $104,094,137.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, Blue Dolphin reported a net loss of $10,130,493 on total revenue of $234,926,203.  The net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2012 included:

  • An impairment and an allowance for doubtful accounts receivable totaling $4,180,159, which related to Blue Dolphin's 7% undivided interest in the North Sumatra Basin – Langsa Field offshore Indonesia (the "Indonesian Interest"); and
  • an abandonment expense of $539,996 associated with plugging and abandonment costs for High Island A-7. The amount recognized reflects the amount incurred less the amount reserved for the abandonment retirement obligation liability, which was $141,643. We will record additional plugging and abandonment costs as information becomes available to substantiate actual and/or probable costs.

During the three months ended September 30, 2012, Blue Dolphin experienced negative cash flow from operations of $28,017, which was a substantial improvement compared to negative cash flow from operations of $3,017,262 during the three months ended June 30, 2012.  The liquidity improvement quarter over quarter was primarily the result of higher product sales margins.  Refining margins were relatively stable throughout the current quarter, allowing the Nixon Facility to generate positive operating income each month within the three months ended September 30, 2012 and an EBITDA of $5,064,868 for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

In November 2012, Blue Dolphin Exploration Company ("BDEX"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Dolphin, entered into a Sale and Purchase Agreement (the "SPA") with Blue Sky Langsa Limited ("Blue Sky") whereby Blue Sky agreed to purchase the Indonesian Interest.  Based on the SPA, which is effective October 31, 2012, Blue Sky will acquire the Indonesian Interest for: (i) $800,000 if transaction closing occurs in December 2012 or (ii) $1.0 million if transaction closing occurs in February 2013.  As a result of the SPA, Blue Dolphin adjusted the value of the Indonesian Interest to $800,000, which resulted in an impairment charge of $3,858,427 for the three months ended September 30, 2012.   Blue Dolphin also recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts receivable of $321,732 for the three months ended September 30, 2012.  The allowance is associated with non-payment of accounts receivable for crude oil liftings revenue by Blue Sky related to the Indonesian Interest.

Blue Dolphin acquired Lazarus Energy, LLC ("LE") from Lazarus Energy Holdings, LLC in a reverse acquisition effective February 15, 2012.  Under reverse acquisition accounting, LE (the legal subsidiary) has been treated as the accounting parent (acquirer) and Blue Dolphin (the legal parent) has been treated as the accounting subsidiary (acquiree).  Accordingly, the financial statements subsequent to the date of the transaction are presented as the continuation of LE.

Blue Dolphin Energy Company (OTCQX: BDCO) is engaged in crude oil and condensate processing, as well as the gathering and transportation and the exploration and production of oil and natural gas.

See accompanying notes to condensed consolidated financial statements in Blue Dolphin's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Management uses earnings before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation ("EBITDA"), a non-GAAP financial measure, to assess the operating results and effectiveness of Blue Dolphin's business segments, which consist of its consolidated businesses and investments.  Management believes EBITDA is useful to Blue Dolphin's investors because it allows them to evaluate Blue Dolphin's operating performance using the same performance measure analyzed internally by management.  EBITDA is adjusted for:  (i) items that do not impact Blue Dolphin's income or loss from continuing operations, such as the impact of accounting changes, (ii) income taxes and (iii) interest expense (or income).  Management excludes interest expense (or income) and other expenses or income not pertaining to the operations of Blue Dolphin's segments from this measure so that investors may evaluate Blue Dolphin's current operating results without regard to Blue Dolphin's financing methods or capital structure.  Management understands that EBITDA may not be comparable to measurements used by other companies.  Additionally, EBITDA should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) and other performance measures such as operating cash flows.

Blue Dolphin is engaged in three lines of business:  (i) ownership of crude oil and condensate processing assets, (ii) pipeline transportation services to producers/shippers and (iii) oil and gas exploration and production.  Blue Dolphin's primary operating asset is the Nixon Facility.  Blue Dolphin also operates oil and natural gas pipelines in the Gulf of Mexico region and holds oil and natural gas leasehold interests in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and Indonesia; however, these operations are considered non-core to Blue Dolphin's business.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
