PostRock Reports Second Quarter Results And Filing Of Form 10-Q

OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PostRock Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:PSTR) today announced the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2010.

Management Comment

David C. Lawler, President and Chief Executive Officer of PostRock said, "During the second quarter we successfully completed our 2010 development plan in the Cherokee Basin, completing and connecting 114 new wells on time and under budget. Also during the quarter, we increased our Cherokee Basin well service activity, returning 190 wells to production in order to capitalize on more attractive natural gas prices. We remain focused on reducing debt, lowering costs and simplifying our capital structure."

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2010

Oil and gas sales increased $4.0 million, or 24.9%, to $20.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2010 from $16.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2009. This increase was primarily due to an increase in average realized natural gas prices which resulted in increased revenues of $5.7 million, partially offset by lower production volumes, which decreased revenue by $1.7 million. Average realized prices on an equivalent basis (Mcfe) increased to $4.10 per Mcfe for the three months ended June 30, 2010, from $2.93 per Mcfe for the three months ended June 30, 2009.

Third party natural gas pipeline revenue decreased $3.9 million, or 51.1%, to $3.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2010, from $7.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2009. The decrease was primarily due to the loss of a significant interstate pipeline customer during the fourth quarter of 2009 and renegotiated contracts at lower volumes and rates with another existing interstate pipeline customer.

Oil and gas production costs, which include lease operating expenses, severance taxes and ad valorem taxes, decreased $0.3 million, or 3.4%, to $7.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2010, from $7.3 million during the three months ended June 30, 2009. The decrease was primarily due to lower lease operating expenses of $1.4 million offset by increased ad valorem and severance taxes of $1.1 million. Production costs were $1.43 per Mcfe for the three months ended June 30, 2010 as compared to $1.32 per Mcfe for the three months ended June 30, 2009. Pipeline operating expense decreased $0.2 million, or 3.1%, to $6.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2010, from $6.9 million during the three months ended June 30, 2009.
