Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

DALLAS, Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (Nasdaq:MCEP) ("Mid-Con Energy" or the "Partnership") announced today its financial and operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Mid-Con Energy highlighted the following results:
  • Increased production approximately 32% to 2,522 barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) per day on average in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 1,913 Boe per day on average in the third quarter of 2012. This represents a temporary decrease of approximately 71 Boe per day (or 3%) compared to the 2,593 Boe per day in the second quarter of 2013 due to the conversion of eight production wells to injection wells and ongoing completion operations for eight newly drilled wells.
  • Increased Adjusted EBITDA approximately 26% to $14.9 million in the third quarter of 2013, up $3.1 million from $11.8 million in the third quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA was $16.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.
  • On October 23, 2013, the Board of Directors of Mid-Con Energy's general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.515 per unit, or $2.06 per unit on an annualized basis.
  • On November 5, 2013, Mid-Con Energy and its lender group executed an amendment to the credit agreement increasing the Partnership's borrowing base from $130.0 million to $150.0 million, extending the maturity approximately two years to November 2018, and adding the Bank of Nova Scotia to its lender group.

Randy Olmstead, Chief Executive Officer and Director, commented, "We recognize the slight downturn in our daily production rate this quarter over the preceding quarter. Occasionally, we need to focus on injection at the expense of current production to increase reserves and future production over the life of the waterfloods. We continue to forecast increases in our proved non-producing reserves, as additional injection plans are executed. Most importantly, our current distribution coverage allows us to complete this work, which will benefit us in the long term, without impacting our current distribution."
