OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PostRock Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:PSTR) today announced its second quarter 2012 results. Oil and gas revenues fell 50% from the prior-year period to $10.7 million. The decline paralleled a 51% drop in the Company's realized gas price which averaged $2.06 per Mcf in the period. This price does not reflect the benefits of hedging which are included in Other Income. As substantially all gas development was suspended in September 2011 due to falling prices, gas production fell 11.1% from the prior-year period to an average of 45.2 MMcf a day. Oil production, which remains modest but is benefiting from current development efforts, increased 22.5% to an average of 265 Bbls a day. Gathering revenue fell by almost 70% to $474,000. More than two-thirds of the decline resulted from the royalty settlement. A further $125,000 can be tracked to the Company's production decline and $175,000 related to a 26% reduction in third party volumes. Pipeline revenue rose 14.1% to $2.8 million as growing associated gas volumes from Osage County, OK increased throughput.
