Second quarter and first half 2020 statements
The selling price of the crude oil grade marketed by Total Gabon averaged $65.1 per barrel, during the second quarter 2021, up 20% compared to first quarter 2021.
The selling price for the first half 2021 averaged 61,5 $/b, up 100% compared to the first semester 2020, reflecting the increase in the average Brent price as well as a the significant improvement in crude oil differentials from fields operated by Total Gabon.
Total Gabon’s equity share of operated and non-operated oil production(1) amounted to 22,600 barrels per day during the second quarter 2021 up 16% compared to the first quarter 2021, mainly due to:
the five-year shutdown of the Torpille field in May.
Total Gabon’s equity share of operated and non-operated oil production(1) amounted to 24,700 barrels per day during the first half 2021 up 7% compared to the first half 2020, mainly due to:
the five-year shutdown of the Torpille field in May;
a partial production unavailability on the Baudroie operated field due to damage to an evacuation line;
the natural decline of the fields.
This was partly offset by:
the gains on the non-operated Grondin sector, from the conversion campaign of well activation from gas-lift to electrical submersible pumps.
The five-year shutdown of the Torpille field took place in May in line with the planned program and schedule. During this shutdown, regulatory inspections and maintenance activities were carried out, as well as efficiency improvement works on the main compressor reliability and performance.
Despite the production drop during Torpille field planned shutdown, average selling price improvement allows second quarter 2021 revenues to increase by 24% to $172 million compared to the first quarter 2021.
Revenues amounted to $311 million in the first half 2021. Although impacted by less favorable lifting program, they increased by 66% compared to the first half 2020 due to average selling price strong improvement.
Funds generated from Operations
Cash flow from operations amounted to $34 million in the second quarter 2021, down 61% compared to the first quarter 2021. The variance is mainly explained by the higher need in working capital, notably driven by the increase in receivables driven by the increase of prices during the period.
Cash flow from operations amounted to $122 million in the first half 2021, up 44% compared to the first half 2020.
Capital expenditure amounted to $36 million during the first half 2021, up 125% compared to the first half 2020. This includes, mainly five-year shutdown of Torpille field and integrity works on the operated sector; mainly the completion of the conversion campaign of well activation from gas-lift to electrical submersible pumps and the installation of a gas pipeline on Grondin non-operated sector.
Net income for the second quarter 2021 amounted to $13 million and $12 million for the first half 2021, sharp increase compared to the first quarter 2021 and the first half 2020. The increase is mainly explained by the average selling price improvement.
