CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/12 -- Americas Petrogas Inc. ("Americas Petrogas" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BOE) announces the Company continued to execute on its investment plan on its oil and gas properties in Argentina and its potash, phosphates, and other minerals project in the Sechura Desert, Bayovar, Peru.
Third Quarter Highlights and Recent Developments
-- For the third quarter of 2012, the Company continued to increase production and sell oil from two of its conventional blocks, Medanito Sur and Rinconada Norte, both operated by the Company. Production for the third quarter of 2012 averaged approximately 2,200 bopd (net), an increase of approximately 49% over the average daily production during the second quarter of 2012. Recently, average daily production has approximated 2,800 bopd (net), representing an increase of approximately 27% over the average daily production during the third quarter. -- Operating netback of $9,286,914 ($47.65 per barrel) during the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $1,094,599 ($28.65 per barrel) during the same period of 2011. This improvement of $8,192,315 represents an increase of 748%. See note (1) below. -- This quarter's net revenue increased by $11,179,380 compared to the third quarter of 2011, which is an increase of 632%. -- $69.8 million of consolidated cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2012. -- Construction of the Company's own production and processing facilities to handle up to 6,300 bopd of gross production is continuing and is expected to be completed before the end of 2012. -- Ten conventional wells were drilled in the third quarter. Of these ten wells, six are awaiting completion, two are on production, one is shut- in and one was abandoned. -- The Aguada Los Loros x-1 (ALL.x-1) unconventional, shale exploration well was drilled on the Los Toldos I block (98,300 gross acres or 398 square kilometers or 154 sections) to a total depth ("TD") of 3,217 meters or 10,554 feet and has been successfully cased and cemented. A complete suite of logs and conventional cores has been acquired. Casing has been successfully set to a TD of approximately 3,213 meters or 10,541 feet in preparation for a planned well test. The well drilled through 562 meters or 1843 feet of the primary target Vaca Muerta formation with oil and gas shows through most of the shale section. Hydrocarbon shows were also encountered in secondary targets such as the Agrio, Mulichinco, Quintuco and Tordillo. Analysis of the cores and cuttings is underway and leading towards developing a plan for future completion and testing. Americas Petrogas is the Operator holding a 45% working interest in the Los Toldos I block; ExxonMobil also holds a 45% working interest, with the remaining 10% held by Gas y Petroleo del Neuquen (G&P). -- The Los Toldos Este well (LTE.x-1) on the Los Toldos II block (38,400 gross acres or 155 square kilometers or 60 sections), which completed drilling earlier in 2012, intersected the Vaca Muerta formation (thickness 343 metres) as expected. The well was hydraulically stimulated with five stages in the Vaca Muerta formation in September. The initial flow rate of the Vaca Muerta formation, after the clean-up flow back, at depths between 2,795 to 3,065 metres was 797 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) of which 694 barrels of oil per day (bopd) was high quality light sweet oil, 39.6 degrees API. The average flow rate for the initial 30 days was 309 boepd, of which there was 254 bopd. Two production flow tests were also conducted to determine the productivity of the perforated intervals. This, in addition to core and other studies, will help the broad evaluation of the future productivity and the potential of the well and the reservoir. Currently the well is shut-in for a pressure build-up test. Americas Petrogas is the Operator holding a 45% working interest in the Los Toldos II block; ExxonMobil also holds a 45% working interest, with the remaining 10% held by G&P. -- Drilling of a second unconventional, shale exploration well, Agua de Afuera (ADA.x-1), on Los Toldos II (operated by Americas Petrogas) is nearing TD, having begun in October 2012. The ADA.x-1 well, a vertical well, is planned for drilling to TD of approximately 3,350 metres (or 10,991 feet) with the principal target being the Vaca Muerta shale and potential to intersect other formations including the Mulichinco, Quintuco and Tordillo formations. -- On the Totoral block (Americas Petrogas - 90% working interest and operator), the Company has completed a three-stage hydraulic stimulation program and testing of the LHo.x-1 well is underway. -- On the Huacalera block (Americas Petrogas - 39% working interest and operated by Apache), the Hua.x-1 well, which completed drilling in the third quarter of 2011, is being prepared for a second hydraulic stimulation in the Vaca Muerta formation. -- The Company continues to advance on its potash and phosphates projects in Peru. Recently, the Company acquired an additional approximately 10,000 hectares (24,700 acres) of concession lands in the Sechura Desert with potential for phosphates and other minerals. Golder Associates Ltd. in Peru has been engaged to assist the Company towards completion of a resources assessment for phosphates. Ercosplan, the Company's consultant responsible for completing a Potash resources assessment, continues to advance and expects completion of the assessment before the end of 2012. -- After extensive surface sampling involving numerous trenches, the Company has begun a 20-borehole drilling program on its southeastern block at Bayovar to identify the presence and extent of evaporites, phosphates, gypsum and other brines. Completion of the drilling program is expected by the first quarter of 2013.
-- We are continuing the exploration, appraisal and development drilling in the conventional oil prospects in the Medanito Sur and Rinconada Norte blocks, where positive results have been experienced in the initial period of this program. Production, reserves and cash flow are expected to grow as a consequence of this active drilling program. -- We are working towards completion of our own production facilities to handle 6,300 bopd from Medanito Sur in order to reduce operating costs and free up some of the limitations of our third-party processors. -- We are continuing with our plans to drill unconventional wells (tight sands and shales), which primarily target the Vaca Muerta along with other conventional zones of interest, on our 90%-owned Totoral, Yerba Buena and Bajada Colorada blocks as well as our Los Toldos blocks with our joint venture partner, ExxonMobil, Huacalera block and Loma Ranqueles block.
"The Company is well positioned to increase production, enhance reserves, and deliver solid growth from its large asset portfolio of conventional and unconventional (tight oil, gas and condensate sands, shale oil and shale gas) lands through an aggressive drilling program during 2012 and into 2013." said Barclay Hambrook, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Operating netback is used as an indicator of operating performance, profitability and liquidity. Operating netback does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. It is unlikely for non-IFRS measures to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. See reconciliation above. (2) "Funds flow from operations" is an additional IFRS measure because it is presented in the consolidated statement of cash flows. Funds flow from operations and funds flow from operations per share are used to analyze operating performance and liquidity. Funds flow from operations is calculated as net cash generated from (used by) operating activities (as determined in accordance with IFRS) before changes in non-cash balance sheet operating items. Funds flow from operations per share is calculated by dividing funds flow from operations by the weighted average number of shares outstanding. Funds flow from operations should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than net cash generated from (used by) operating activities as determined in accordance with IFRS. Funds flow from operations per share should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than earnings (loss) per share as determined in accordance with IFRS. (3) Diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding is computed by adjusting basic weighted average number of common shares outstanding for dilutive instruments. The number of shares included with respect to options, warrants and similar instruments is computed using the treasury stock method, which assumes any proceeds received by the Company upon exercise of the in-the-money instruments would be used to repurchase common shares at the average market price for the period. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, 4,781,543 common shares and 8,753,732 common shares, respectively, were deemed to be issued for no consideration in respect of options. (4) Short-term investments are bank-sponsored investments and other high credit rating instruments which are current in nature, with an initial maturity greater than three months when purchased and which are not redeemable at face value on demand. (5) Working capital is a non-IFRS measure and is calculated as current assets less current liabilities. Working capital is used to assess liquidity and general financial strength. Working capital does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. It is unlikely for non-IFRS measures to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Working capital should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than current assets or current liabilities as determined in accordance with IFRS.
For the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported gross oil sales revenue of $14,905,094 and net oil sales revenue, after deducting royalties, of $12,947,498 compared to net oil sales revenues, after deducting royalties, of $1,768,118 for the third quarter of 2011 - this represents an increase in net oil sales revenues of 632%. The increase in oil sales in 2012 is a result of increased oil production and higher average sales prices.
The Company reported net loss attributable to owners of the Company was $3,314,583 or $0.02 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to a net income of $2,052,831 or $0.01 per share for the same period of 2011. The net income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 can be attributed to a sizeable foreign exchange gain.
Operating Netback and Cash Flow
Operating netback for the current quarter was $9,286,914 compared to $1,094,599 during the same period of 2011. This improvement of $8,192,315 represents an increase of 748%.
With respect to funds flow from operations, the Company generated an inflow of $4,628,895 during the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to an outflow of $354,520 during the same period of 2011. Funds flow from operations reflects cash flow from operating activities (as determined in accordance with IFRS) before changes in non-cash balance sheet operating items. Alternatively, it reflects net income (loss) on the statement of income (loss), adjusted for non-cash items of income (loss) including, but not limited to, depletion and depreciation, stock-based compensation and unrealized foreign exchange items.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company generated $1.6 million of cash from operating activities (which includes changes in non-cash balance sheet operating items), compared to the same period of 2011 when the Company used $2.1 million in operating activities (which includes changes in non-cash balance sheet operating items). The cash inflow in 2012 is attributable primarily to increased gross profit from oil sales (excluding non-cash depletion and depreciation). With respect to investing activities, the Company spent $56.4 million on capital expenditures in the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $12.8 million spent in the same period of 2011.
As of September 30, 2012, the Company has a cash position (including cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments) of $69.8 million. The increase in current assets, particularly short-term investments, reflects the completion of an equity financing of 20,217,000 common shares in the first quarter of 2012. Accounts receivable has increased as a result of increased oil sales. The Company's reported exploration and evaluation assets have increased in 2012, as a result of continuing activities in Argentina and Peru. The Company's reported property, plant and equipment has increased, net of depletion, primarily as a result of continued drilling on the Medanito Sur and Rinconada Norte blocks. During 2012, the Company settled US$18.95 million of promissory notes.

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 ...
