Change in MPN’s consolidation method for SEPLAT In order to make the financial information sent to shareholders easier to read and analyse, the Group has opted, from fiscal year 2012 onwards, to consolidate SEPLAT by the equity method, in accordance with the alternative treatment authorised by IAS 31. This change in method has no impact on MPN’s control over SEPLAT, which remains a jointly controlled entity. This decision leads the Group to reconstruct the financial data starting that historic year using the equity method. This reconstruction ensures the comparability of the financial statements due to the fact that the provisions of IFRS11 comes into effect in 2014. Pursuant to IAS 8 and 31, this change in method has now been applied retrospectively by adjusting the Group’s financial statements for previous fiscal years as if SEPLAT had been consolidated as an equity associate from the outset. Consequently and in accordance with this method, SEPLAT’s contribution to the Group’s financial statements will now be recorded in the statement of financial position under “Equity associates”, and in the comprehensive income statement under “Share of income from equity associates”. The key items in SEPLAT’s financial statements restated in accordance with Group standards are disclosed in the notes to this document. SEPLAT’S 2012 activities Production of OMLs 4, 38 and 41 operated by SEPLAT continued to increase over the whole of fiscal 2012 despite longer production interruptions than planned. Production was partially or totally halted for 65 days in 2012 compared to SEPLAT’s estimated 25 days of interruptions for maintenance of routing facilities. In addition, SEPLAT and SPDC signed an agreement in principle to reallocate 2,384,943 barrels in favour of the NPDC-SEPLAT joint undertaking, specifically 1,0055,224 barrels for SEPLAT for volumes produced up to the end of 2012. SPDC had already made two initial adjustments (at 100%) of 297,133 and 440,000 barrels for activities prior to March 2012. Under the terms of this agreement, a third adjustment of 1,647,810 barrels was made and the principle of a maximum 8% discount on the production was negotiated. Consequently, SEPLAT sales for fiscal year 2012 amounted to US$629 million, up 39% on 2011. This figure includes US$26 million in gas sales. SEPLAT’s year-end well output target of 50,000 boepd was reached in January 2013. The Okporhuru field, the first field to be developed by SEPLAT, is expected to be connected during the first half of 2013 and enable well output to exceed 60,000 boepd by February 2013. During the year, SEPLAT’s joint venture implemented a steady investment programme required to meet its targets. Twelve production and injection wells were drilled during the year at a cost of US$185 million, major workovers were completed on nine wells for US$98 million, and US$44 million of commitments were signed for investments for treatment facilities. These primarily relate to the construction of a water-oil separation unit that is scheduled to become operational during the second quarter of 2013 and which will maximise the capacities for routing the oil produced whilst reducing the processing costs charged by SPDC. They relate mainly to the construction of an oil/water separation plant which should be commissioned in the second quarter of 2013 and will optimise oil routing while reducing the processing costs currently invoiced by SPDC. 2013 objectives and strategy The MPN Group’s objective is both to maximise its investment in SEPLAT by supporting the development of production from OMLs 4, 38 and 41 and backing SEPLAT in its decisions regarding acquisitions, while also grasping any opportunities to diversify its asset portfolio. SEPLAT’s objectives include achieving well output of around 65,000 boepd by the end of 2013 (at 100%), and gas output in the order of 130 million cubic feet of gas per day. SEPLAT is working to significantly increase its processing capacities in order to enhance its gas assets. SEPLAT is paying particular attention to external growth in Nigeria and to setting up a dedicated team for this purpose. At the same time, MP Nigeria’s teams are examining investment opportunities outside Nigeria to allow it to diversity its assets. Comments on SEPLAT’S 2012 financial statements SEPLAT sales for fiscal 2012 amounted to US$629 million, an 39% increase in relation to 2011. Operating income of US$294 million is improving in line with production and sales increases. It represents 47% of sales. Financial expenses correspond to the interest expense on borrowing: a line of credit and a shareholder loan granted by MPN. Net book income amounted to US$138 million versus US$39 million in 2011. At 31 December 2012, SEPLAT posted a cash position of US$112 million, including a short-term advance received from MPN in the amount of US$98 million. This advance was reimbursed in January 2013. Comments on MPN’S 2012 financial statements The main aggregates of MP Nigeria’s financial statements are financial income amounting to €4.4 million and the share of the equity associate SEPLAT’s income, totalling €48 million. Financial income includes €2.6 million paid on the US$47 million shareholder advance paid to SEPLAT and €1.8 million in interest accruing from cash investments made during the year. At 31 December 2012, MP Nigeria posted a cash position of US$182 million including an advance of US$98 million (€76 million) as part of the offer to sell Conoco Phillips’ Nigerian assets. It was reimbursed in early 2013. Statement of financial position The financial statements approved by the Board of Directors on 26 April 2013 have been audited. They are available in the Annual Financial Report.
