Commenting, Mr. Wale Tinubu, Group Chief Executive, Oando PLC said: ?2015 remained a
turbulent year for the global oil and gas industry as business models had to be altered to
enable industry players survive this new reality, by focusing on cost optimisation, increasing
operational efficiency and downscaling capital expenditure. This re-evaluation of our business
has resulted in the execution of strategic initiatives, which we are confident will return our
business to profitability in the short-term in 2016, with Growth through our dollar earning
upstream portfolio, Deleverage through recapitalization or asset divestments, and Profitability
hinged on refocused dollar oil export trading business?.
Operational Update
Oando Energy Resources increased its total production to 20 million barrels of oil equivalent
(mmboe) in 2015 period compared with 9.1 mmboe in 2014. The increase between the annual
periods was primarily from the acquisition of OMLs 60 ? 63 in H2 2014, as well as the
commencement of production from the Qua-Iboe field in Q1 2015.
OER successfully realized a cash inflow of $234 million by resetting its crude oil hedge from
the previously hedged average of $95.35 per barrel to a new price of $65.00 per barrel on
10,615bbls/day till July 2017 and an additional 1,553 bbls/day until January 2019. The
proceeds of the hedge reset along with cash in hand were used to pay down substantial portion
of our debt.
Oando Energy Services (OES) successfully deployed OES Respect into a 2 year, with 1 year
extension contract with an IOC in October 2015. OES achieved five and three years of
continuous operations with a Zero Lost Time Incident (LTI) on two of its four rigs, ?OES
Teamwork? and ?OES Passion? respectively. We continue to consistently demonstrate our
commitment to world class operating standards, with the proactive use of our EHSSQ and
operational processes.
Oando Gas & Power (OGP) as at December 2015 had completed 87% of the Greater Lagos
Phase 4 pipeline project which runs from Ijora to Bonny Camp in Lagos state, the project
involves the deployment of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) technology across three rivers
on the Marina axis, is expected to be completed by the end of Q3 2016. OGP also commenced
an 8.5km pipeline expansion project for the Central Horizon Gas Company, the expansion
project which is expected to extend the pipeline from 8.3km to 16.8km and increase CHGC?s
capacity to 70mmscf/day, is to be completed in 2016. In line with our strategy to Build, Operate
and Transfer in the gas and power business, we signed the Sales and Purchase Agreement
(SPA) for Akute divestment effective end of August 2015. The divestment process has been
completed as at Q1 2016.
Oando downstream successfully concluded tie-ins to third party terminals via a 2km Horizontal
Directional Drilled pipeline. The jetty will alleviate delays associated with product delivery into
the Apapa, reduce long term cost of operations, as well as provide possible revenue streams
from excess capacity. In 2015, the marketing arm completed upgrading of its LPG plants, the
Apapa LPG plant capacity was upgraded from 15mt/day to 30mt/day, representing a 100%
increment, while the Benin plant was upgraded to include best in industry safety standards.
