Update on second quarter 2019 financial results and audiocast details for 31 July 2019

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) will publish its financial report for the second quarter 2019 on Wednesday 31 July 2019. For the second quarter 2019, Lundin Petroleum will expense pre-tax exploration costs of approximately MUSD 34 and recognise a net foreign exchange gain of approximately MUSD 34.

These items are largely non-cash and will have no impact on operating cash flow or EBITDA.

Exploration costs

For the second quarter of 2019, Lundin Petroleum will incur pre-tax exploration costs of approximately MUSD 34 which will be charged to the income statement and offset by a tax credit of approximately MUSD 26. The exploration costs are mainly related to the dry well on the Vinstra and Otta prospects located in PL539, the dry well on the Korpfjell Deep prospect located in PL859, the dry well on the JK prospect located in PL916 and the dry well on the Lynghaug prospect located in PL758.

Foreign exchange

Lundin Petroleum will recognise a net foreign exchange gain of approximately MUSD 34 for the second quarter of 2019. The Norwegian Krone strengthened against the US Dollar by approximately 1 percent and the Euro strengthened against the US Dollar by approximately 1 percent during the second quarter of 2019. The foreign exchange gain is largely non-cash and mainly relates to the revaluation of loan balances at the prevailing exchange rates at the balance sheet date.

Revenue from the crude oil sales from third parties

Lundin Petroleum markets its own crude oil production and at times markets crude oil from third parties. For the second quarter 2019, revenue from the sale of crude oil from third parties amounted to MUSD 44.2 offset by the purchase of crude oil from third parties of also MUSD 44.2, resulting in no gross profit on third party activities for the second quarter 2019.

Change in accounting principle for under/overlift balances

Lundin Petroleum previously recognised income based on its produced volume (entitlement method) for the period. Lundin Petroleum has decided to change the accounting treatment of such under/overlift so that from 1 April 2019 the income will reflect sold volume (sales method). This means that changes in under/overlift balances are no longer reported as other income valued at market price, but will instead be reported as an adjustment to cost valued at production cost including depletion. During the second quarter of 2019, Lundin Petroleum was underlifted by 1.0 Mboepd.

Lundin Petroleum’s financial report for the second quarter 2019 will be published on Wednesday  31 July at 07:30 CEST, followed by a live audiocast at 08:30 CEST where Alex Schneiter, President and CEO, and Teitur Poulsen, CFO, will be commenting on the report and the latest developments in Lundin Petroleum.
