CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Twoco Petroleums Ltd. ("Twoco" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TWO) announces financial and operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and an update of its 2012 activities.
Twoco has filed the following documents on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR):
1. Unaudited condensed interim financial statements as at and for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, together with the notes therein as prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards; and 2. Management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations as at and for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Copies of these documents may be obtained via SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Highlights of the Third Quarter 2012 include:
-- Petroleum and natural gas sales revenue of $913,357 - a 36% decrease from the Third Quarter 2011 - predominantly due to the decrease in natural gas production and natural gas prices; -- Cash flow used by operations of $42,298. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company had cash flow from operations of $296,258; -- Average production of 339 boe per day (includes 113 barrels per day of oil and natural gas liquids) - a 45% decrease from the Third Quarter 2011 - a result of shut-in natural gas volumes due to low natural gas prices, a lack of natural gas drilling activity and production declines of the Company's natural gas properties. Current oil production is approximately 120 barrels per day; -- Average production of 113 barrels per day of oil and natural gas liquids from the Company's Warspite heavy oil property represents an 8% increase in the average production of oil and natural gas liquids from the Third Quarter 2011; -- Operating netback of $454,583 ($14.55 per boe); -- Operating netback of $48.48 per barrel in respect of the Company's production of Sparky heavy oil; -- Net loss of $1,037,986; -- Capital expenditures of $65,996; -- Current land position of 105,431 gross (76,782 net) acres; -- Operating costs of $10.54 per boe; -- General and administrative expenses of $6.34 per boe; and -- In the Third Quarter 2012, the Company issued a total of 948,256 common shares in payment of interest accrued to September 30, 2012 on its $3.4 million principal amount of redeemable, convertible, unsecured 8% debentures.
Highlights of Twoco's operations for the 2012 year to date include:
-- Current production of 338 boe per day (includes approximately 120 barrels per day of oil and natural gas liquids); -- Twoco estimates current shut-in and behind pipe production capability of 400 boe per day; and -- The next review date of the Company's credit facilities was to take place on September 30, 2012; however, the review has not yet occurred. The Company and its Bank remain in discussions concerning the next scheduled review date. Effective October 31, 2012, the Bank has agreed to defer collection of monthly interest on the Company's $18,000,000 revolving credit facility as well as the $50,000 working capital waiver fee otherwise due on October 31, 2012. Such monthly interest is currently being added to the principal amount of the Company's revolving credit facility.
Management has been working on certain strategic alternatives including, but not limited to, recapitalizing the Company through financing arrangements or merging with other companies. The Company continues to require the support of its lenders and creditors and will require additional financing to reduce its working capital deficiency and further develop its oil properties to realize the full potential of the significant proved and probable reserve base. There is no assurance, however, that additional funding will be available, if and when needed, and if such funding is not available, the Company's ability to continue as a going concern will be significantly impaired.
Twoco is an oil and gas company engaged in the exploration for, and the acquisition, development and production of, oil and natural gas reserves primarily in the Province of Alberta. Twoco has 73,905,789 common shares issued and outstanding as at today's date.
In this news release the calculation of barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated at a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas for one barrel (Bbl) of oil based on an energy equivalency conversion method. Boes may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable to the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

By their nature, forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond Twoco's control, including the impact of general economic conditions, industry conditions, volatility of commodity prices, currency fluctuations, imprecision of reserve estimates, environmental risks, operational risks in exploration and development, competition from other industry participants, the lack of availability of qualified personnel or management, stock market volatility and the ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources.
