HighPeak Energy, Inc. announced financial and operating results for the fourth quarter 2021 and reaffirmed its 2022 outlook. 

Fourth quarter 2021

Firstly, 4Q 2021 sales volumes of 14,881 barrels of crude oil equivalent per day; an increase of approximately 81% compared with third quarter 2021.

Secondly, fourth-quarter 2021 sales volumes benefitted from a successfully executed fourth quarter drilling campaign; and are based primarily on production from approximately 59 gross (47.4 net) horizontal wells. 

Also, at December 2021, the Company had an additional 27 gross (23.0 net) horizontal wells; in various stages of drilling and completion; that are expected to come online during the latter part of the first quarter 2022.

We had a great fourth quarter as evidenced by our 81% production growth. Even before the Ukrainian crisis, we recognized massive underinvestment in energy over the past several years, and contrary to industry sentiment we forged ahead and positioned ourselves for responsible growth. 

Jack Hightower, HighPeak Chairman, and CEO.

Moreover, EBITDAX of $72.4 million and $164.2 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2021, respectively.

Fourth quarter 2021 realized price of $72.07 per Boe; and realized cash operating margin of $60.26 per Boe, excluding the effects of derivatives.

Drilled 15 gross (14.0 net) operated horizontal wells; and completed 10 gross (6.0 net) operated horizontal wells during the 4Q.

As well, the year-end 2021 PV-10 reserve value increased to approximately $1.5 billion using flat pricing of $72 per barrel of oil; and $3.75 per MMBtu of natural gas.

Ended 2021 with net debt of $65.1 million (a non-GAAP financial measure as defined and calculated below).

Increased liquidity to approximately $225 million by completing an October public stock offering; recently closing a private senior unsecured notes offering and amending the revolving credit facility.

We are contemplating accelerating our drilling activity in this year’s business which we can accomplish without increasing our near-term outspend. We are a growth company and we want our shareholders to realize that we will lean into all available opportunities, especially given our quick payouts and high returns on investment.

Jack Hightower.
