Radiant Oil & Gas Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

HOUSTON, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiant Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Radiant" or the "Company") (OTC: ROGI), an independent oil and gas exploration and production company focused on the onshore and shallow state waters of the U.S. Gulf Coast area, announced today results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2014.

Highlights

  • Revenues increased 28% year-over-year to $682,672
  • Production increased 30% year-over-year to 6,644 Bbls
  • Received $4,000,000 investment from third party to further develop Coral and Taylor Point Shallow projects
  • Added 780,000 Bbls in proved reserves at Natchez project year-to-date

"We are incredibly pleased with our results this quarter, which reflect the substantial progress we are making in our drilling and development program," said Radiant CEO John Jurasin. "In particular, we continued to see strong performance at our Natchez project. Daily production there has increased 30% year-over-year and we anticipate it will continue to grow now that we have transferred operations in-house and begun to aggressively develop the project's Proved Behind Pipe and Proved Undeveloped reserves. As we ramp up production at Natchez, we continue to move closer to getting the Coral, Ensminger and Taylor Point projects on line. Overall, we are excited about Radiant's future and committed to unlocking shareholder value by exploiting long-lived assets on the Gulf Coast."

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Oil and gas revenues increased 28.1% to $682,672 in the second quarter 2014 compared to $532,871 in the second quarter 2013. Average oil sales price was $102.75 per barrel ("Bbl") in the second quarter 2014 compared to $104.51 per Bbl in the second quarter 2013. Oil sales volume increased 30.3% to 6,644 Bbls in the second quarter 2014 compared to 5,099 Bbls in the second quarter 2013.

Lease operating expenses were $1,059,703 million for the second quarter 2014 compared to $706,619 for the second quarter 2013. Depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion ("DD&A") expense was $48,362 for the second quarter 2014 versus $12,272 for the second quarter 2013. General and administrative ("G&A") expense for the second quarter 2014 was $1,189,167.

Net loss per diluted share for the second quarter 2014 was ($3,023,040), or ($0.21) per diluted share, as compared to ($186,020), or ($0.15) per diluted share, for the second quarter 2013.

As of June 30, 2014, Radiant's cash and cash equivalents balance totaled $1,413,925 and restricted cash balance was $1,150,427.

Operational Update

Natchez

  • Of the 23 fields purchased in the Natchez acquisition, 18 are operated by Radiant. In-house geological and geophysical and engineering staff has evaluated nine of the 18 operated fields for additional development. Management estimates the Natchez reviews have added over 780,000 Bbls of oil to the Company's proved reserve base as of June 30, 2014, which is an 85% increase over proved reserves for the Natchez properties as of December 31, 2013. Based on the results from the first nine field reviews, management believes additional proven opportunities will be identified when work on the remaining nine fields is completed.
  • Radiant has increased daily production in its Natchez property holdings from the point of take over and management's goal is to perform the remedial work necessary to get all wells capable of production.
  • During the quarter, Radiant transferred operational oversight of the project from contractors to in-house staff. The Company expects this will result in increased production, efficiencies and cost savings going forward.
  • A review in connection with the transition has identified additional owned acreage that Radiant can develop at no cost. The increased acreage position allows for further upside potential.

Coral

  • In June 2014, Radiant sold 35% of its 100% working interest in the Coral project to a third party and received $2,000,000, which included an advance for the third party's share of projected costs on the first well. During the third quarter of 2014, the Company plans to log and test the first well in the project. 

Ensminger

  • Radiant has been successful in acquiring all lands for the project. The Company located the re-entry well, commenced operations and successfully moved downhole into the well to a depth of approximately 9000'. The well is scheduled to a depth of 14,800' at which time the Company will test the proven reserves at the target depth. Operations have been temporarily suspended pending selection of the appropriate rig for the next phase of operations. Management intends to recommence operations on this project prior to the end of 2014.

Taylor Point Shallow

  • In July 2014, the Company received a payment of $2,000,000 from a third party for a working interest participation in the Taylor Point Shallow Project.  Radiant is the operator of the project and has retained a carried 10% working interest.  The Company has added approximately 440,000 Bbls of oil to its proved reserves as of June 30, 2014 related to this project.
