Oil and gas explorer and producer PentaNova Energy, holds a large diversified portfolio of unexploited assets in Colombia and Argentina.

As quoted from the press release:



Operating Three months ended

June 30, 2018

Three months ended 
March 31, 2018
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.

Impairment Loss

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the company recognized impairments relating to the Llancanelo Asset of US$25.0 million. These impairments were the result of the difference between the period‐end net book value and management’s assessment of the recoverable amount of the Llancanelo asset as of June 30, 2018 on account of the formal notification received from YPF regarding the relinquishment of the Company’s working interest in the Llancanelo asset and the termination of the YPF Farm‐In. Following completion of the write‐down, the Llancanelo Asset had a carrying value of approximately US$10.6 million.
