Three months ended

Gross production (100 percent) boe 105,302 111,024
Net working interest production boe 41,057 43,287
Average boe production per day (boe/d) 451 481

 

The Llancanelo net production recorded for each of the periods is for the 39 percent working interest held during Q1 2018 and Q2 2018. Subsequent to the closing of the Roch acquisition on October 27, 2017, which included an additional 10 percent working interest in Llancanelo, the company’s Llancanelo net production increased to 39 percent working interest.

During Q2 2018, the Llancanelo concession produced a total of 41,057 net boe (105,302 gross boe) compared to 43,827 net boe (111,024 gross boe) in Q1 2018, representing roughly a 5 percent decrease in production. This equated to average daily production of 451 net boe/d in Q2 2018 compared to 481 net boe/d in Q1 2018. The reduction in production can be attributed to scheduled maintenance that required certain wells on the concession to be shut in during the maintenance period.

Following completion of the write‐down, the Llancanelo Asset had a carrying value of approximately US$10.6 million.
