Letter to shareholders

Pricey Associates and Fellow Shareholders of Maha Power AB,

Close to report excessive oil costs helped our backside line this quarter as our quarterly manufacturing volumes have been decrease than deliberate, and in the meanwhile we’re monitoring across the backside finish of our 2022 manufacturing steering of 4,000 BOEPD.  Maha delivered a report first half of the 12 months (H1) on all fronts, together with manufacturing, revenues and web outcomes. H1 common day by day manufacturing landed at 3,933 BOEPD and H1 EBITDA was USD 36.7 million, virtually double in comparison with final 12 months’s report. Our consequence for H1 was twice that of our earlier highest H1 consequence recorded. However although we skilled undesirable and irritating short-term manufacturing setbacks in Brazil throughout the quarter, we’re making actual progress in securing long-term manufacturing stability on the Tie area. Regardless of larger than regular working bills throughout the quarter, our Netback per barrel is at an all time excessive at USD 65 per BOE. In fact, we’re not proud of the short-term discount in manufacturing volumes from the Tie area, however we’re working exhausting on getting all of our producing wells again on manufacturing once more as quickly as attainable. Solely two out of six wells contributed to our oil manufacturing on the Tie area this quarter.

At our core asset in Brazil, the Tie area, manufacturing was decrease throughout the second quarter as a consequence of; pure manufacturing decline, changing the Tie-3 properly from an oil producer to a water injector, oil manufacturing from Tie-5 horizontal approaching late, and dropping manufacturing from three key manufacturing wells (Tie-1, GTE-3, and GTE-4). These three wells are scheduled for restore utilizing the contracted Braserv rig throughout the third and fourth quarters to revive manufacturing ranges.

Operationally on the Tie area, the Tie-5 properly was accomplished as a horizontal producer in July and flowed naturally 770 BOEPD on a 24 hour take a look at. The Tie-5 continues to supply steadily with negligible water and can contribute to offset different short-term setbacks on the Tie-field. Additional, surprising optimistic information was encountered on Tie-6, the place the Agua Grande (AG) reservoir was penetrated 12 meters larger than predicted. This is superb information, because the reservoir is larger structurally than anticipated, the seismic mapping of the construction should be redefined.  Moreover, and since a lot of the AG is now above the oil water contact, we’re at the moment evaluating the potential of initially producing the oil within the AG earlier than changing the properly to a water injector, as was initially deliberate.

Sadly, delays within the drilling of the Tie-4 and Tie-5 wells have adversely impacted the schedule for Tie-1, GTE-3 and GTE-4 workovers. The Brasserv workover rig was contracted in June to start the properly intervention work to revive manufacturing on the Tie area. Thus far, work on finishing the Tie-5 oil producer and changing the ALV-2 properly to a gasoline injector has been accomplished.  Subsequent, GTE-3, GTE-4 and Tie-1 will probably be restored to full manufacturing throughout the second half of the 12 months. Importantly, Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESP) will probably be put in in GTE-3 after which later in Tie-2 to additional increase manufacturing at Tie.

After the contracted GBS-1 drilling rig was withdrawn by the drilling contractor, the Maha staff in Oman acted swiftly to safe the Gulf Drilling Firm Rig-109 and drilling is now anticipated to start in October. The Firm additionally determined to strategically farm down 35% of the Block 70 Exploration and Manufacturing Sharing Settlement to Mafraq Power LLC. Not solely does the farm down handle the Firm’s asset danger publicity, but it surely additionally reduces price and improve confidence within the mission. Mafraq Power brings essential technical experience in addition to a strategic partnership in Oman to help in future progress. It’s in all probability the very best proof but of the robustness of the Mafraq area.

The Mafraq area is a delineated and examined heavy oil area onshore Oman. A earlier operator examined 15,700 barrels of heavy oil from a single properly over a 23 day properly take a look at interval in 1991. Maha’s plan is to begin drilling the primary six appraisal and manufacturing pilot take a look at wells on the sphere beginning in October.

Manufacturing from the Illinois Basin was regular throughout the quarter and the Firm continues to guage the outcomes from the 2021 drilling marketing campaign together with potential progress alternatives within the USA. At LAK Ranch in Wyoming, the Firm commenced a collection of regulatory properly assessments and properly reactivations. A strategic course of was initiated throughout the quarter to guage the very best future choices for the LAK Ranch property. 

It was a ‘blended’ bag of occasions this quarter – some good and a few not so good. As beforehand talked about on the Tie area, we produced from solely two wells, Tie-4 and Tie-2, for a lot of the quarter. This affected manufacturing considerably.  Delays within the drilling of Tie-5 and the tubing leaks in GTE-3, GTE-4 and Tie-1 resulted in decrease manufacturing volumes throughout the quarter. These three wells will probably be returned to manufacturing now that the drilling rig is moved out of the sphere and the workover rig has completed the work on the ALV-2 gasoline injection properly. The truth that the AG was penetrated larger than prognoses within the Tie-6 properly could be very encouraging. 

The long run appears to be like vibrant and busy for the second half of the 12 months. With the workovers on the Tie area, we are going to add essential barrels to our manufacturing and with the surprising outcomes of Tie-6, we could have a complete of seven producing wells there, offering essential manufacturing redundancy. Lastly, in Oman, we are going to begin the drilling of the massive Mafraq construction and start properly take a look at manufacturing at a industrial degree.  It’ll be a really busy second half of the 12 months.

Lastly, I want to thank my fellow Maha colleagues who work so tirelessly for all of us, and to all loyal shareholders who assist us. Thanks!

Yours actually,

Jonas Lindvall
Managing Director
