By GlobeNewswire,  July 30, 2014, 04:15:00 PM EDT


Company Delivers 44% Year-Over-Year Production Growth

Full Year 2014 Production Guidance Raised

HOUSTON, July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Halcón Resources Corporation (NYSE:HK) ("Halcón" or the "Company") today announced its second quarter 2014 results.

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 totaled $327.1 million, an increase of 53% compared to the three months ended June 30, 2013. Production for the quarter came in above guidance and increased 44% year-over-year to an average of 42,055 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boe/d). Second quarter 2014 production was 85% oil, 7% natural gas liquids (NGLs) and 8% natural gas.

Excluding the impact of hedges, the Company realized 91% of the average NYMEX oil price, 35% of the average NYMEX oil price for NGLs and 113% of the average NYMEX natural gas price during the period.

Total operating costs per unit (including lease operating expense, workover and other expense, taxes other than income, gathering and other expense, and general and administrative expense), after adjusting for selected items (see Selected Operating Data table for additional information), decreased by 21% to $24.45 per Boe in the second quarter of 2014, compared to the second quarter of 2013.

After adjusting for selected items primarily related to the non-cash impact of derivatives (see Selected Item Review and Reconciliation table for additional information), net income was $32.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Halcón reported a net loss available to common stockholders of $73.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share for the quarter.

Steve W. Herod, President, commented, "Second quarter results were solid and reflect our ongoing efforts to maximize returns. We believe we are well positioned to continue delivering strong growth in our core plays, and we are comfortable with our current liquidity position. Leverage metrics should also improve over time."

Liquidity and Capital Spending

The Company closed on the $450 million sale of certain non-core assets in East Texas on May 9, 2014. These properties contributed 1,645 Boe/d to Halcón's 42,055 Boe/d of production during the second quarter of 2014.

As previously disclosed, Halcón announced the signing and closing of a definitive agreement with credit funds and accounts managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, "Apollo"), which may invest up to $400 million in the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, HK TMS, LLC ("HK TMS"). On June 16, 2014, Apollo contributed $150 million in cash consideration for 150,000 of HK TMS preferred shares, and under certain circumstances, may acquire up to an additional 250,000 preferred shares of HK TMS on the same terms. The initial $150 million capital investment by Apollo, as well as potential future investments, will reduce Halcón's capital requirements in the TMS over the next several quarters.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had undrawn capacity on its senior secured revolving credit facility plus cash on hand totaling approximately $618 million.

During the second quarter of 2014, Halcón incurred capital costs of $268.7 million on drilling and completions, $13.1 million on infrastructure/seismic and $164.2 million for leasehold acquisitions primarily in the TMS. Per the terms of the Apollo agreement and during the quarter, the Company accelerated a $126.9 million payment to Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. associated with the previously disclosed acquisition of certain properties prospective for the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale ("TMS"). Halcón originally planned to defer and pay these amounts during the second half of 2014 and throughout 2015. In addition, the Company incurred $47.0 million for capitalized interest, G&A and other.

Recent Developments

On July 29, 2014, Halcón's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend on shares of its 5.75% Series A Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock equal to accrued dividends for the three months ending August 31, 2014. The Company will pay the dividend on September 2, 2014 to holders of record on August 15, 2014. The dividend payments on all of the outstanding 5.75% Series A Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock will total approximately $5.0 million, and will be paid in shares of Halcón's common stock having a fair market value (as determined under the certificate of designation governing such preferred stock) equal to the aggregate dividend amount. The Company will pay cash in lieu of issuing any fractional shares.

Bakken/Three Forks - Solid Development Phase Growth

Halcón produced an average of 28,259 Boe/d in the Williston Basin during the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 87% year-over-year and 22% quarter-over-quarter. Activity returned to more normal levels post the weather impacts experienced during the first quarter of 2014. The Company spudded 14 wells and put 19 wells online during the period. Halcón also participated in 45 non-operated wells during the quarter with an average working interest of approximately 5%.

The Company operated an average of four rigs in the Williston Basin during the three months ended June 30, 2014. Due to ongoing efficiency gains, Halcón recently reduced its rig count to three rigs and expects to spud approximately 23 operated wells during the second half of 2014. The Company also expects to participate in 135 to 140 non-operated wells in the second half of 2014.

On average, the 18 wells put online in the Fort Berthold area and the 1 well put online in Williams County during the second quarter are outperforming Halcón's 801 MBoe and 477 MBoe type curves, respectively.

Downspacing tests continue to yield positive results, and the Company is currently in various stages of downspacing tests in 10 DSUs (38 wells) across the Williston Basin. Halcón is also evaluating production performance of downspaced wells in an additional 10 DSUs (30 wells). Based on results, the Company's current development plans are to proceed with spacing of 660' to 880' between wells, depending on location.

Drilling operations continued to become more efficient during the three months ended June 30, 2014. Halcón lowered drilling costs by approximately 8% and increased the number of feet drilled per day by approximately 27%, compared to the prior period. During the quarter, the Company set a new record by drilling a Three Forks well in the Fort Berthold area in 14 days (spud to TD).

Halcón is focused on improving economics by lowering completed well costs without impacting production and estimated ultimate recoveries, via efficiencies associated with pad drilling/simultaneous operations and completion modifications (proppant type, fluid type, pumping services). As a result, completed well costs in the Fort Berthold area decreased by approximately 3% during the second quarter compared to the first quarter of 2014 and are currently estimated at $11.5 million on average. The Company recently moved a rig to Williams County to drill two wells, which are estimated to cost approximately $9.5 million on average.

Halcón has working interests in approximately 131,000 net acres prospective for the Bakken and Three Forks formations in the Williston Basin. There are currently 160 Bakken wells producing, 8 Bakken wells being completed or waiting on completion and 3 Bakken wells being drilled on Halcón's operated acreage. There are also currently 49 Three Forks first bench wells producing, 2 Three Forks second bench wells producing and 1 Three Forks well being completed or waiting on completion on the Company's operated acreage.

"El Halcón" - East Texas Eagle Ford - Production Continues to Climb

Halcón produced an average of 9,111 Boe/d in El Halcón during the period, representing an increase of 453% year-over-year and 30% quarter-over-quarter. Nine wells were spudded and eight wells were put online during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

The Company operated an average of three rigs in El Halcón during the second quarter and expects to spud approximately 22 operated wells in the play during the second half of 2014, while running an average of three rigs.

Industry activity continues to ramp up, and there are currently 15 to 20 total rigs drilling in the play. Based on its own results combined with the results from offset operators, Halcón believes that its entire acreage position has been de-risked and well performance should be repeatable.

Progress continues to be made toward identifying an optimal well design. The average initial production rate for the wells put online so far in the third quarter is 1,091 Boe/d (93% oil). Completion modifications are ongoing and current testing includes increased stage length, tighter perforation cluster spacing, increased resin coated sand percentage relative to total proppant volume, using different surfactants and installing large bore frac plugs. Several artificial lift modifications also continue to be evaluated.

Halcón has approximately 101,000 net acres leased or under contract in the play, all of which are believed to be located in the core of the play. There are currently 67 Eagle Ford wells producing, 3 wells being completed or waiting on completion and 3 wells being drilled.

Tuscaloosa Marine Shale ("TMS") - Delineation Ongoing

Halcón operated an average of two rigs in the TMS during the second quarter and expects to spud approximately eight operated wells in the play during the second half of 2014, while running two rigs. The Company is a non-operated partner in several TMS wells that were spudded during the first half of 2014 and are performing in line with expectations. Halcón plans to participate in 10 to 12 non-operated wells in the second half of 2014.

As previously disclosed, the Company's first operated eastern TMS well, the Horseshoe Hill 11-22H-1 (92% WI - 7,060' effective lateral), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, achieved a 24-hour average initial production rate of 1,548 Boe/d, assuming full ethane recovery.

Completion operations are ongoing on Halcón's second operated TMS well in Mississippi, the Black Stone 4H-2 (87% WI - 5,400' drilled lateral), located in Wilkinson County. All 22 frac stages were successfully pumped; however, the Company encountered fill during clean out operations near stage 10. Halcón was only able to partially clean out the fill and additional clean out operations are underway. Flow back is expected to commence once clean out operations are finalized.

The Fassman 9H-1 (84% WI - 6,030' drilled lateral), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, is awaiting completion. This well is located three miles west of the Goodrich Petroleum-operated Crosby 12H-1 well and was landed in the same lower target interval. The 6,030' lateral was drilled in approximately 6.5 days, or 918' per day, which is a record in the play for the Company.

The SD Smith 1H (98% WI - 7,556' drilled lateral), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, is also awaiting completion. A pilot hole was drilled with a full state-of-the-art logging suite and recovered 200' of conventional core. This well was drilled in 33 days (spud to TD), after adjusting for the time it took to drill the pilot hole.

Halcón recently spudded the Shuckrow 10H-1 (87% WI), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, and is planning a 6,700' lateral for this well.

The Company expects to spud the George Martens 1H (97% WI), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, in the next week and is planning a 7,000' lateral for this well.

The industry continues to make progress delineating the play. Economics are expected to improve over time as drill days come down, competition for services increases and efficiencies are realized. Halcón continues to believe it can reduce the number of drilling days by 15% to 20% on average by year-end.

The Company has approximately 315,000 net acres leased in the TMS.

Halcón Field Services

Halcón's midstream subsidiary, Halcón Field Services ("HFS"), is currently working on several initiatives that could ultimately improve realized pricing and margins across its portfolio.

The Company's first compressed natural gas ("CNG") facility is expected to be in service by the end of the third quarter of 2014 and will serve operations in El Halcón. Halcón believes using CNG to displace diesel fuel used in drilling and completion operations is not only better for the environment but should also result in a nearly 50% savings on fuel costs when fully implemented. The Company expects to build similar facilities to service its operations in the Williston Basin and the TMS in 2015.

HFS continues to provide low pressure gathering services in El Halcón. With continued progress in the play, HFS plans to support the TMS by building a three-phase gathering system with centralized aggregation points located strategically throughout the play. Centralized aggregation points are expected to reduce the cost of individual well facilities and allow for more efficient transportation of both crude oil and produced water. Gas will also be processed at a central facility with access to one or more residue gas outlets. System design and layout are substantially complete and HFS plans to begin permitting for a processing plant and other relevant facilities in the third quarter of 2014.

HFS also continues to develop a scalable crude oil handling facility at the Port of Natchez in Mississippi that will be capable of handling truck and pipeline offloading from the TMS. HFS will have the ability to market the crude oil via barge on the Mississippi River or by rail via the port's direct access to the Canadian National railroad. Halcón expects to begin the permitting process during the third quarter of 2014, with an expected in-service date of mid-2015.

(1) Represents charges related to the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with decreases in the Company's borrowing base under its senior revolving credit facility. 
(2) For the 2014 columns, represents the tax impact using an estimated tax rate of 36.16%. These columns also include an adjustment for the change in the valuation allowance of $25.7 million and $51.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively.
(3) Net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flow from operations before changes in working capital adjusted for selected items are non-GAAP measures. 
These financial measures are presented based on management's belief that they will enable a user of the financial information to understand the impact of these items on reported results. 
Additionally, this presentation provides a beneficial comparison to similarly adjusted measurements of prior periods. These financial measures are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, earnings per share and cash flow from operations, as defined by GAAP. These financial measures may not be comparable to similarly named non-GAAP financial measures that other companies may use and may not be useful in comparing the performance of those companies to Halcón's performance.
(4) The impact of selected items for the three and six months June 30, 2014 was calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 491.0 million and 420.1 million, respectively, due to the adjusted net income available to common stockholders, excluding selected items.
