Oil Search Limited Reports Consolidated Earnings and Production Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Production Guidance for the Full Year 2015

Oil Search Limited reported consolidated earnings and production results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the period, the company reported net profit 72% to $353.2 million from $205.7 million for 2013. The profit included a $129.6 million after-tax impairment charge, largely related to the impact of lower oil prices on the carrying value of exploration and evaluation assets. Excluding significant items, core profit rose 135% to a record $482.8 million from $205.7 million. The strong result was driven by a near tripling of production, again to record levels, following the commencement of LNG production from the PNG LNG Project in April, partially offset by a 12% fall in the average realised oil and condensate price. EBITDAX was $1,257 million against $552.6 million a year ago. Operating cash flow was $992.3 million against $366.8 million a year ago. Earnings per share was 23.84 cents against 15.36 cents per share a year ago. Investment expenditure was $1,877 million against $1,673.4 million. Profit before tax was $584.9 million against $379.8 million a year ago. Net operating cash flow per share was $66.67 against $27.39 per share a year ago. As on date, net debt was $3,452 million against $3,814.8 million a year ago. For the year, total production was up 186% to 19.27 mmboe from 6.74 mmboe, total sales up 164% to 17.76 mmboe from 6.73 mmboe and total revenue up 110% to $1.61 billion from $766.3 million. The company recorded the high annual production and financial performance in the company's history, reflecting the first contributions from the PNG LNG Project, which came onstream ahead of expectations. For 2015, the company expects total production in the range of 26 to 28 mmboe and depreciation and amortisation in the range of $13 to 14/boe.
