Lightstream Announces 9% Production Growth, $112 Million of Dispositions, Updated Guidance, and 2013 Year-End Reserves

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Lightstream Resources Ltd. (TSX:LTS) ("Lightstream" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on our 2013 fourth quarter and current operations, announce $112 million of asset dispositions, updated 2014 guidance as a result of the dispositions, and report our year-end 2013 reserves. The Company's annual audit of our consolidated financial statements is not yet complete and accordingly all financial and production amounts herein are management's best estimates which are unaudited and subject to change.

Highlights


--  2013 annual average production was 46,438 barrels of oil equivalent per
    day ("boepd"), a 9% increase from our 2012 production average of 42,784
    boepd.
--  2013 fourth quarter average production was 45,521 boepd (80% light oil
    and liquids weighted), essentially unchanged from Q3 2013 and 4% below
    Q4 2012.
--  2013 capital expenditures (before acquisitions and divestitures) were
    $716 million, 25% below 2012 levels.
--  We drilled 110 wells in 2013, with 44% drilled in the Cardium business
    unit, 45% in south east Saskatchewan, and the remainder in our
    Alberta/British Columbia business unit (primarily in our Swan Hills
    area).
--  2014 first quarter activity anticipates a total of 46 wells drilled,
    representing approximately half of our 2014 program, and construction
    of new facilities, including a 3,500 bopd facility in the Swan Hills
    area.
--  Initial 2014 asset dispositions have resulted in the sale of, or
    agreements to sell, approximately 1,700 boepd (66% gas) of non-core
    production for gross proceeds of $112 million.
--  2013 activity resulted in total proved ("TP") reserves additions of
    11.5 million barrels of oil equivalent ("MMboe") and proved plus
    probable ("2P") reserves additions of 20.7 MMboe, replacing 122% of
    2013 production before asset dispositions and net negative revisions
    for certain properties when compared to prior year reserve estimates.
--  Our year-end reserves evaluation resulted in 2P reserves of 200.2 MMboe
    (80% light-oil and liquids weighted) which have a net present value
    (before tax, discounted at 10%) of $4.1 billion as at December 31,
    2013.
--  Our three year finding, development and net acquisition ("FD&A") cost
    is $31.71/boe for our TP reserves and $30.81/boe for our 2P reserves
    including net technical revisions and future development costs.
--  Continued success with our enhanced oil recovery ("EOR") initiatives
    increased our 2P reserves related to our pilot natural gas flood in the
    Bakken to more than 410 Mboe of reserves, representing a 40% increase
    for each well under EOR.

Operational Update

In 2013, we focused on deploying a more balanced capital program throughout the year to achieve growth in year-over-year average production. Our efforts achieved an annual average production rate of 46,438 boepd for 2013, representing growth of 9% over our 2012 average production. Our capital spending program for the year was $716 million, within our previously guided range of $700 million to $725 million.

2013 fourth quarter production averaged 45,521 boepd (80% light oil and liquids). Our more level loaded capital program in 2013 took advantage of optimal field conditions during the winter drilling season within some of our areas. As a result, our 2013 production profile was less seasonal with December exit volumes of approximately 45,200 boepd. Our exit volumes were about 4% lower than our guidance, primarily impacted by unplanned production restrictions due to facility constraints and high gathering system pressures in the Cardium, and additional down time with extreme cold weather experienced by all of our business units. December volumes were reduced by approximately 1,200 boepd by these factors. A portion of these volumes have been recovered in the first quarter of 2014, with a majority of the restricted production expected to be recovered by the second half of 2014 through facility de-bottlenecking initiatives.

We drilled a total of 110 wells during 2013. In the Cardium business unit, we drilled 10 wells and placed 14 wells on production in the fourth quarter, bringing our 2013 total to 48 wells drilled and 56 wells brought on production. In southeast Saskatchewan, we drilled 14 wells in the fourth quarter and placed 19 wells on production, bringing our yearly totals to 50 wells drilled and 51 wells on production. In the Swan Hills region, we drilled three wells and placed them on production in the fourth quarter, bringing our 2013 total to nine wells drilled and on production for the year.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

As we enter 2014, we are very active with drilling and completion operations focused on our core areas in the Bakken, Cardium and Swan Hills. We currently have 11 drilling rigs operational with 5 rigs running in the Cardium, 4 rigs in southeast Saskatchewan and 2 rigs in the Swan Hills area. In the first quarter of 2014, we will drill 22 wells in the Cardium to continue to build on the success we have experienced in this region. We will drill 16 wells in southeast Saskatchewan during the same period and continue our optimization efforts and enhanced oil recovery projects to materially mitigate our Bakken base well declines and replace production. In the Swan Hills area, we will drill eight wells during the first quarter.

Approximately 900 boepd of current production restrictions in the Cardium are being mitigated through infrastructure improvements. We are participating in new oil and gas processing facilities in the Lochend area, which will alleviate existing restrictions on production by the second quarter of 2014. In the West Pembina area we are also adding additional gas handling facilities to deal with line pressure bottlenecks, which have continued to restrict production. Given these infrastructure improvements, we expect to eliminate the production restrictions we are currently experiencing by the second half of 2014.

In the Swan Hills area, we have been active through the winter and have drilled a total of eight wells since October 2013. We will drill three additional wells prior to spring break-up and plan to have all wells on production in May. Well production from our initial producers has averaged in excess of 370 bopd (IP30) through single well battery facilities. To facilitate the transition of Swan Hills into our next growth area, we are presently constructing a 3,500 bopd battery in our core area of Deer Mountain. That facility is expected to be on stream during the second quarter and will eliminate emulsion trucking costs and gas flaring. In addition, the battery will provide a platform for the future activity in the area, which includes plans to drill a further four wells in Deer Mountain in the second half of 2014.

In 2013, we invested exploration capital to drill test wells in our Lutose Slave Point play, at south Cochrane in the Cardium, and on other exploration concepts. We are encouraged by the data gathered at Lutose and plan further drilling to test this prospective light oil resource play. We have 218 sections in this area that, if proved commercial, could significantly impact our production and reserves. At south Cochrane, we drilled and cored a vertical Cardium test well. Although abandoned, the information from this well will help us high-grade the area and provide future potential locations as we extend the Cardium trend.

Our EOR plans continue to expand in all our business units. In the Bakken, we added another natural gas injection well in 2013, bringing our total to four wells now on injection. We also increased total gas injection rates by 33% over the year. We continue to be encouraged by the results we are seeing from these injection schemes, which resulted in additional reserves being recognized at the end of 2013. In 2014, we will be increasing the amount of acreage under injection and expect to have two additional patterns online by year-end, with wells and infrastructure in place for two additional patterns to be added in early 2015. In 2014 we will commence a conventional Mississippian water flood pilot in southeast Saskatchewan as well as initiating pilot patterns targeting both natural gas and water injection in the Cardium. In addition, in the Swan Hills our first horizontal water injection well will be completed and on injection by year-end.

In 2014, we will also continue to build on the success that we have had with our optimization program in southeast Saskatchewan. Operations include millouts, cleanouts, high volume lift installations and casing gas compressor installations. To-date we have optimized over 300 wells, which have shown increased production and mitigated declines. In 2014, we expect to spend $30 million on optimizations in southeast Saskatchewan and this program will be expanded to include the Cardium.

Disposition Activity Update

As previously announced, we are committed to improving our balance sheet strength through the divestment of non-core assets. We are pleased to provide an update on our success so far. To-date, we have sold or are finalizing negotiations for the sale of certain non-core assets in the Alberta/BC business unit and gas weighted assets from our Cardium business unit, where we have retained the Cardium rights. The assets being divested consist of 1,700 boepd of production (66% natural gas weighting), 3 MMboe of 2P reserves, and 41,000 net acres for expected gross proceeds of $112 million.

Transaction metrics for the asset divestures are:


--  Cash flow metric: 11.1x
--  Production metric: $66,000/boepd
--  Reserves metric: $37.56/2P boe ($39.94/2P boe including FDC)

These transactions are consistent with the strategic efforts we outlined in November 2013 and we will continue to target accretive divestitures as we execute our capital plan for 2014.

In November of 2013, we announced that we were going to offer for sale certain fee title and royalty interest lands in southeast Saskatchewan. We had excellent response with multiple interested parties in our process, and although we received a number of compelling bids, the party with the highest bid failed to close their purchase of the properties. Consequently, we are planning to revisit the sale of these assets with market participants in the very near future. Based on the strong interest in this first royalty offering, we have also completed an internal review of additional fee title and royalty interest lands in southeast Saskatchewan and we plan to bring these assets to market in 2014 as well.

2014 Guidance Update

We have updated our 2014 guidance as a result of the recent asset divestments. In 2014, our main priority will be managing and lowering the leverage on our balance sheet through initiatives aimed at reducing our debt to cash flow ratio, while improving our sustainability ratio, maintaining a production platform that can deliver future growth and continuing to pay a dividend. One of our primary initiatives is to undertake asset divestments to generate a targeted $600 million in the next two years, with $300 million of divestitures targeted for this year. We are committed to using the proceeds of any disposition activity to pay down debt.

Our updated guidance in the table below reflects the effect of announced dispositions (net of reduced interest expenses) and an update to our economic forecast, which continues to use a US$95/bbl price for WTI, but now includes a 90 cent Canadian dollar/US dollar exchange rate (95 cents previously) and a $4.00/Mcf AECO gas price ($3.00/Mcf previously). The net effect of these changes has been to reduce our production guidance by 3%, increase our funds flow from operations by 7% and improve our sustainability ratio to 100% (cash outflows prior to divestitures compared to cash inflows).

We remain focused on creating long term value for our shareholders by developing long-life accretive light-oil resource plays that support organic growth of production and reserves. While 2014 represents a transition year in which we will focus on maintaining our production growth platform, improving our balance sheet and long-term sustainability, we believe we will exit 2014 well positioned to capitalize on our extensive asset base to generate long-term growth.

RESERVES

Sproule Associates Limited ("Sproule") has completed their evaluation of Lightstream's reserves, effective December 31, 2013 ("Sproule Evaluation").

Unless otherwise noted, all reserves herein are "Company Interest" reserves, which represent the Company's working interest and royalty interest share of reserves, before deduction of the Company's royalty obligations. All values in this press release are based on Sproule's forecast prices and estimates of future operating and capital costs at December 31, 2013.

Year-end 2013 2P reserves were 200.2 MMboe, after 2.4 MMboe of non-core dispositions, 16.9 MMboe of production, the addition of 20.7 MMboe as a result of capital investment, and 7.9 MMboe in net negative technical revisions. Sproule's net present value of our 2P reserves, discounted at 10%, is $4.1 billion before tax, a slight increase over 2012 due to improved pricing.

During 2013, our capital program resulted in the addition of 20.7 MMboe 2P reserves and 11.5 MMboe of TP reserves. With a total of 16.9 MMboe of reserves produced during the year, this resulted in our 2013 capital program replacing 122% of 2013 production.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, we realized net technical revisions that resulted in 2P reserves being reduced by 7.9 MMboe. The technical revisions to our reserves bookings were primarily comprised of the removal, or reduction, in reserve bookings for areas within southeast Saskatchewan and, to a lesser extent, the Cardium where off-setting production did not economically support the reserve bookings on a go-forward basis.

Inclusive of the net negative technical revisions, our 2013 2P F&D was $57.63/boe (including land) and $56.49/boe (excluding land). We view this as unacceptably high and anomalous due primarily to capital expenditures that did not impact reserves and net negative technical reserve revisions. These revisions accounted for an increase in our 2P F&D of approximately $21.83/boe. Some items of our capital spending during 2013 that were considered to be unique included:


--  Facility cost overruns of $25mm for projects initiated in late 2012;

--  $30mm for pipeline and facility infrastructure to tie-in existing
    Bakken wells that have been drilled over the past 3 years, resulting in
    an operating cost savings of over $10/boe for these projects on a go-
    forward basis. Based on our pace of development in the Bakken we have
    minimal plans to complete additional infrastructure projects of this
    magnitude in the future;

--  Initial costs during the evaluation phase of the Swan Hills area
    program amounted to approximately $15mm of additional capital compared
    to our current program design; and

--  Drilling capital of $35mm to test new play concepts that did not result
    in any immediate reserve assignments.

Our 2013 2P F&D before revisions was $35.80/boe. Taking into account all of our expenditures and reserve revisions, our three-year weighted average F&D cost, including land, is $33.07/boe, generating an operating recycle ratio of 1.5 times, based on a $50.80/boe netback. We are targeting 2014 F&D costs to be within our historical range of $25.00/boe to $30.00/boe, as we do not expect the above mentioned 2013 costs to be recurring.

2P reserves in the Cardium business unit increased from 93.7 MMboe in 2012 to 95.4 MMboe in 2013, replacing 124% of production. Large positive revisions were also made due to performance and increased gas to oil ratios in the area. In 2013, 2P FD&A costs for this business unit were $24.95/boe (including revisions), generating an operating recycle ratio of 1.9 times based on our operating netback for the business unit of $47.54/boe. We expect the Cardium business unit to continue to be a key source of growth, with a development drilling inventory of over 530 net locations, of which 202 net locations were included in the Sproule Evaluation.

2P reserves in the Bakken business unit (before dispositions) were down slightly in 2013, resulting in year-end 2P reserves of 72.8 MMboe. The potential for future EOR-related reserve growth in the Bakken is encouraging after receiving initial 2P reserve recognition for the early stage success of our pilot natural gas flood. We now have 415 Mboe of reserves added that can be attributed to our EOR program. At year-end, we had an inventory of over 900 net locations in the business unit, of which 275 net locations were included in the Sproule Evaluation.

(1) The aggregate of the exploration and development costs incurred in the
    most recent financial year and the change during that year in estimated
    future development costs generally will not reflect total finding and
    development costs related to reserve additions for that year.
(2) The Company uses FD&A as a measure of the efficiency of its overall
    capital program including the effect of acquisitions and dispositions.
(3) Boe's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe
    conversion ratio of 1 boe for 6 thousand cubic feet of natural gas is
    based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable
    at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the
    wellhead.

Lightstream Resources Ltd. is an oil and gas exploration and production company combining light oil Bakken and Cardium resource plays with conventional light oil assets, delivering industry leading operating netbacks, strong cash flows and production growth. Lightstream is applying leading edge technology to a multi-year inventory of Bakken and Cardium light oil development locations, along with other emerging resource play opportunities. Our strategy is to deliver accretive production and reserves growth, along with an attractive dividend yield.

Forward-Looking Statements. Certain information provided in this press release constitutes forward-looking statements. Specifically, this press release contains forward-looking statements relating to financial results, results from operations, future production rates, proposed exploration and development activities (including the number of wells to be drilled, completed and put on production), our drilling prospect inventory, projected capital expenditures, the timing of certain projects, future finding and development costs, the anticipated completion of asset dispositions, and future dividend payments. The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions, including expectations and assumptions concerning the success of future drilling, completion, recompletion and development activities, the performance of new and existing wells, prevailing commodity prices and economic conditions, the market for asset dispositions and the ability of counterparties to close on dispositions, the availability and cost of labour and services, timing of pipeline and facilities construction, access to third party facilities and weather and access to drilling locations. Although we believe that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because we can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g., operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, reliance on industry partners, risks that asset dispositions cannot be completed, availability of equipment and personnel, uncertainty surrounding timing for drilling and completion activities resulting from weather and other factors, changes in applicable regulatory regimes and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations and general economic conditions. Certain of these risks are set out in more detail in our Annual Information Form which has been filed on SEDAR and can be accessed at www.sedar.com. Except as may be required by applicable securities laws, Lightstream assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements made herein or otherwise, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

BOEs. Natural gas volumes have been converted to barrels of oil equivalent ("boe"). Six thousand cubic feet ("Mcf") of natural gas is equal to one barrel of oil equivalent based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily attributable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Boes may be misleading, especially if used in isolation.

Well Counts. All references to well counts are on a net basis.

We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...
