Dune Energy Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial And Operating Results PR Newswire HOUSTON, Aug. 7, 2013 HOUSTON, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dune Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:DUNR) today announced results for the second quarter of calendar year 2013. Revenue and Production Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $16.8 million as compared with $13.1 million for the second quarter of 2012. Production volumes in the second quarter were 135 Mbbls of oil and 0.62 Bcf of natural gas, or 238 Mboe. This compares with 105 Mbbls of oil and 0.75 Bcf of natural gas, or 230 Mboe for the second quarter of 2012. In the second quarter of 2013, the average sales price per barrel of oil was $104.26 and $4.40 per Mcf for natural gas, as compared with $105.62 per barrel and $2.69 per Mcf, respectively for the second quarter of 2012. Production increased 3% in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to the second quarter of 2012. Oil prices decreased 1% and gas prices increased 64% from 2012 levels. During the second quarter of 2013 oil accounted for 57% of the total production volumes on an equivalent basis; however, oil revenue accounted for 84% of the total revenue. Costs and Expenses Total lease operating expense was $7.8 million for the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $6.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, or $33.12 and $29.10 per Boe produced, respectively. Major increases over theprior year were increases in production taxes due to additional oil production in Louisiana, gas purchases for the gas lift system at Garden Island Bay, and environmental and facilities work at Garden Island Bay. DD&A expense was $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2013, or $20.22 per Boe. G&A expense totaled $3.1 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. Primary increases in G&A are stock based compensation and increased personnel costs and consulting fees. Interest and financing expense did not fluctuate between quarters amounting to under $5.0 million. Earnings Net loss totaled $1.3 million for the second quarter of 2013. This compares with income of $0.9 million in 2012. Liquidity At the end of the quarter we had $16.2 million in cash and $28 million available under our Credit Facility based on $50 million of availability. The revolver is subject to a mid-year redetermination based on a new reserve report currently being completed that will incorporate activity in the first half of the year. The availability under the revolver is subject to the 4.5 to 1.0 ratio of total debt to trailing 12 months EBITDAX for the second quarter and 4.0 to 1.0 for subsequent quarters. Third and fourth quarter EBITDAX will determine our actual availability under the revolver. 2013 Operations Summary and Capital Program Production Second quarter production was up dramatically from first quarter levels reflecting Garden Island Bay and Leeville production post recent increased drilling activity. First quarter production volumes were 162 Mboe while second quarter was 238 Mboe or a 47% increase. On a daily basis, first quarter production was approximately 1,800 Boe/day whereas the second quarter averaged 2,615 Boe/day. July and August should average between 2,250 and 2,450 Boe/day reflecting normal declines; deferred production at the Leeville field due to third party pipeline repairs shutting in the field for approximately 7-10 days; and, reduced third quarter drilling activity resulting from limited rig availability. Additionally, the Heirs of Abraham well at Leeville sanded up and is currently being worked over. This well was making 200-300 Bo/day prior to the recompletion. Dune has a 40% working interest in this well. Assuming a successful completion at the Chocolate Bayou Wieting #31 and no major hurricanes or other disruptions, production should increase again in September. Fourth quarter production should be enhanced assuming success in drilling by the Chocolate Bayou Wieting #31 well, the Live Oak LOPT #13 well and the Garden Island Bay #913 (Epsilon) well. Forecast volumes for the entire third quarter were anticipated at approximately 2,500 Boe/day and fourth quarter at 2,700 Boe/day based on the year-end 2012 reserve report and budget estimates. These forecasts will be updated with the new mid-year D&M reserve report which is currently being completed. Capital Program In the first half of the year we spent approximately $29 million primarily in our Leeville and Garden Island Bay fields. All drilling and production costs for the six well development programs at Leeville were concluded in the first half of the year. The SL 20783 #ST2, a 20,500' exploratory test in which Dune has a 20% working interest is to be junked and abandoned due to problems encountered while drilling. We anticipate that our insurance coverage will pay all costs to either permanently or temporarily abandon the well, and drill a new wellbore to 18,929 feet minus a $100,000 deductible amount. The cost of the well prior to encountering downhole problems was approximately $30 million gross or $6 million to Dune's working interest. Assuming the insurance settlement will result in a new well bore, we will drill the remaining 1,500' to test the original prospect. This will probably not occur until late in 2013 or early 2014. At Chocolate Bayou, the Wieting #31 is currently at 11,850' and we are preparing to run 7 5/8" casing. Once casing is run, we will drill the 800 feet needed to test the objective 12,000 S sand section at approximately 12,400 feet. Assuming we encounter a reservoir sand similar to the offsetting Wieting #32, we anticipate gross production volumes of 500 Bo/day and 5 MMcfg/day or up to 500 Boe/day net to Dune's 50% working interest. There are no reserves currently booked to this wellbore. We anticipate drilling the LOPT #13 well in our Live Oak field as soon as final permits are secured. This well will tap proved undeveloped reserves and should produce approximately 1 MMcfg/day plus 50 Bo/day or approximately 175 Boe/day net to our interest. The well will take approximately 30 days to drill once permits are finalized. We anticipate spudding the well in August or September. At Garden Island Bay we are awaiting a rig to spud the SL 214 #913 (Epsilon prospect). The rig is anticipated to come to us by late September to drill this unbooked location. For the fourth quarter of 2013 our drilling program will focus on additional wells at Garden Island Bay, Bateman Lake or our Leeville field. The exact drilling program will be dependent on partner negotiations at the Leeville field. James A. Watt, President and CEO of the company stated, "Our year-to-date drilling results have resulted in significant new production. Based on current forecasts of third and fourth quarter production and EBITDAX, our liquidity should be sufficient to continue our drilling program at our major fields. Success in the third and fourth quarter drilling programs should result in increased production and EBITDAX which will allow the Company to access the full availability under our revolver in 2014."
