Operations Update

Magnolia Petroleum Plc / Index: AIM / Epic: MAGP / Sector: Oil & Gas

19 May 2017

Magnolia Petroleum Plc (‘Magnolia’ or ‘the Company’)

Operations Update

Magnolia Petroleum Plc, the AIM quoted US focused oil and gas exploration and production company, is pleased to announce its participation in seven new wells in the prolific SCOOP and STACK plays in Oklahoma, including five increased density wells which are to be drilled on the same spacing unit as already producing wells and are therefore deemed to have been significantly de-risked.  In addition, the Company is participating in the workover of eleven existing wells, all of which are low cost and are expected to increase both the level of production and the estimated recoverable reserves for each well.

Participating in seven new wells with an aggregate net cost of US$103,695

Well Name Targeted Formation Operator Magnolia’s WI/NRI% Net Cost to Magnolia Status
Pauline 4-24/25H Woodford, Oklahoma Trinity 0.71/0.53 $31,800 Waiting on spud

Celesta 2 Springer, Oklahoma Continental Resources 0.02/0.016 $2,255.00 Waiting on spud

The four Pauline wells are increased density wells targeting the Woodford Shale in Hughes County, Oklahoma. These wells will offset two previously completed Woodford Shale wells: the Trinity-operated Clara 1-13/24H and Regina 1-25/24H. Both the Clara and Regina wells have been and continue to be prolific producers:

  • The Regina well has cumulatively produced 1.3 BCF to date, currently produces at a rate of 1.7 MMCFD and has a projected estimated ultimate recovery (‘EUR’) of over 7.3BCF. 
  • The Clara well’s cumulative production to date stands at 0.800 BCF, its daily production is currently 1 MMCFD and its EUR is over 3.5BCF. 

The four Pauline wells will have a longer horizontal section in the Woodford Shale compared to the Clara and Regina wells, and therefore they have the potential to generate even larger reserves than either of the two initial wells.

Participating in the workover of the following 11 wells at an aggregate net cost of US$38,930:

Well Name Targeted Formation Operator Magnolia’s NRI% Net Cost to Magnolia Workover
Cummings 31-28-12-1H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 3.34 $9,600 ESP install
Cummings 2H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 3.34 $9,600 ESP install
Brandt 31-28-12 1H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 3.35 $8,400 install pumping unit

Oakley Cash 3-27-17 1H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake 0.8 $1,735 install pumping unit
Clive Pelton 34-23H Bakken, North Dakota Marathon Oil 0.40 $1,330 Subsequent refrac
Mack 10-27-17 1H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 0.53 $1,165 install pumping unit
Sundance 1-4H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 0.60 $500 install plunger lift
Rosemary Eckelberg Bakken, North Dakota Marathon Oil 0.35 $500 workover
Alison 16-1H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 0.20 $500 install pumping unit
Jacob 16-1H Mississippi Lime, Oklahoma Chesapeake Energy 0.20 $500 install pumping unit

All the above wells are or have previously been producing.  Adding an artificial lift to each well, either by installing a pumping unit or plunger lift, is expected to lead to an uplift in production and an upgrade to reserves which will be reflected in future reserves reports. 

Magnolia CEO, Rita Whittington said, “We are encouraged by the number of new proposals we are receiving to drill alongside established operators.  In our view, this provides further evidence of a pick-up in activity and sentiment in the US onshore sector, as highlighted by a more than doubling in the latest Baker Hughes oil rig count to 712 from 318 a year ago.  It also validates our strategy to focus our lease acquisition strategy on prolific plays, such as the SCOOP and STACK in Oklahoma, where the economics of drilling are attractive in the current oil price environment. Furthermore, all seven wells are deemed to be low risk due to either being drilled on the same spacing unit as an existing producer or as a result of Magnolia’s share of the drilling costs being fully carried.

“Working over an existing well provides a low cost, low risk opportunity to increase production rates and recoverable reserves.  In a low oil price environment, this is an attractive proposition for operators and with a portfolio of 157 producing wells we expect to participate in additional workovers going forward.  Workovers have positive implications for the overall level and value of our proven developed producing (‘PDP’) reserves which were recently independently valued at US$4,300,000. At this level, the value of our PDPs already outstrips our current market capitalisation.  Workovers therefore have the potential to increase the already strong asset backing behind the Company.”
