PETROLIA ENERGY CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2019 AND 2018

(Unaudited)

 

1. ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION:

 

Petrolia Energy Corporation (the “Company”) is in the business of oil and gas exploration, development and production.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s latest Annual Report filed with the SEC on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operations for a full year. Notes to the consolidated financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, as reported in Form 10-K, have been omitted.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Leases

 

Leases are classified as operating leases or financing leases based on the lease term and fair value associated with the lease. The assessment is done at lease commencement and reassessed only when a modification occurs that is not considered a separate contract.

 

Lessee arrangements

 

Where the Company is the lessee, leases classified as operating leases are recorded as lease liabilities based on the present value of minimum lease payments over the lease term, discounted using the lessor’s rate implicit in the lease or the Company’s incremental borrowing rate, if the lessor’s implicit rate is not readily determinable. The lease term includes all periods covered by renewal and termination options where the Company is reasonably certain to exercise the renewal options or not to exercise the termination options. Corresponding right-of-use assets are recognized consisting of the lease liabilities, initial direct costs and any lease incentive payments.

 

Lease liabilities are drawn down as lease payments are made and right-of-use assets are depreciated over the term of the lease. Operating lease expenses are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, consisting of interest accrued on the lease liability and depreciation of the right-of-use asset, adjusted for changes in index-based variable lease payments in the period of change.

 

Lease payments on short-term operating leases with lease terms twelve months or less are expensed as incurred.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Adopted in the current year

 

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, “Leases”, using the modified retrospective method, whereby a cumulative effect adjustment was made as of the date of initial application. The Company elected the practical expedient to use the effective date of adoption as the date of initial application. Accordingly, financial information and disclosures in the comparative period were not restated. The Company also elected to apply the package of practical expedients such that for any expired or existing leases, it did not reassess lease classification, initial direct costs or whether the relevant contracts are or contain leases. The Company did not use hindsight to reassess lease term or for the determination of impairment of right-of-use assets.

 

Adoption of ASU 2016-02 did not have any impact on the Company as all its leases are short-term operating leases with lease terms twelve months or less.

To be Adopted in Future Years

 

In June 2016, Financial Account Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016-13, “Measurement of Credit Loss on financial Instruments”. ASU 2016-13 replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with the expected credit loss impairment model, which requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to estimate expected credit losses over the life of the instrument instead of only when losses are incurred. This standard applies to financial assets measured at amortized cost basis and investments in leases recognized by the lessor. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating this standard to determine the impact it will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

3. GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company plans to generate profits by reworking its existing oil or gas wells. The Company will need to raise funds through either the sale of its securities or through debt funding to accomplish its goals. If additional financing is not available when needed, the Company may not be able to rework existing oil wells. Management believes that actions presently being taken to secure additional funding for the reworking of its existing infrastructure will provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern. Since the Company has an oil producing asset, its goal is to increase the production rate by optimizing its current infrastructure. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern; no adjustments to the financial statements have been made to account for this uncertainty.

  (i) On May 8, 2014, the Company, with the primary guarantee provided by the Company’s former CEO, David Baker, purchased a backhoe to use at the Texas field. David Baker entered into an installment note in the amount of $57,613 for a term of three years and interest at 2.9% per annum. On June 1, 2018, the equipment was returned to the seller with no further action taken by the Company, Mr. Baker, or the lender.
     
  (ii) On January 6, 2017, the Company purchased a truck and entered into an installment note in the amount of $35,677 for a term of five years and interest at 5.49% per annum. Payments of principal and interest in the amount of $683 are due monthly.
     
  (iii) On May 9, 2018, Bow Energy Ltd. (“Bow”), a former wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into an Amended and Restated Loan Agreement with a third party. The Loan Agreement increased by $800,000 the amount of a previous loan agreement entered into between Bow and the Lender, to $1,530,000. The amount owed under the Loan Agreement accrues interest at the rate of 12% per annum (19% upon the occurrence of an event of default) and is due and payable on May 11, 2021, provided that the amount owed can be prepaid prior to maturity, beginning 60 days after the date of the Loan Agreement, provided that the Company gives the Lender 10 days’ notice of its intent to repay and pays the Lender the interest which would have been due through the maturity date at the time of repayment. The Loan Agreement contains standard and customary events of default, including cross defaults under other indebtedness obligations of the Company and Bow, and the occurrence of any event which would have a material adverse effect on the Company or Bow. The Company is required to make principal payments of $10,000 per month from January through September 2019 with the remaining balance of $710,000 due at maturity on May 11, 2021.

 

    The additional $800,000 borrowed in connection with the entry into the Loan Agreement was used by the Company to acquire a 25% working interest in approximately 41,526 acres located in the Luseland, Hearts Hill, and Cuthbert fields, located in Southwest Saskatchewan and Eastern Alberta, Canada (collectively, the “Canadian Properties” and the “Working Interest”).
     
    In order to induce the Lender to enter into the Loan Agreement, the Company agreed to issue the Lender 500,000 shares of restricted common stock (the “Loan Shares”), which were issued on May 18, 2018, and warrants to purchase 2,320,000 shares of common stock (the “Loan Warrants”), of which warrants to purchase (a) 320,000 shares of common stock have an exercise price of $0.10 per share in Canadian dollars and expire in May 15, 2021, (b) 500,000 shares of common stock have an exercise price of $0.12 per share in U.S. dollars, and expire on May 15, 2021; and (c) 1,500,000 shares of common stock have an exercise price of $0.10 per share in U.S. dollars and expire on May 15, 2020.

    The fair value of the 500,000 common shares issued were assessed at the market price of the stock on the date of issuance and valued at $47,500. The fair value of the Canadian dollar denominated warrants issued were assessed at $30,012 using the Black Scholes Option Pricing Model. The fair value of the U.S. dollar denominated warrants issued were assessed at $182,650 using the Black Scholes Option Pricing Model. The Company determined the debt modification to be an extinguishment of debt and recorded a total loss on extinguishment of debt of $260,162.
     
    Upon the disposition of Bow, a total of $730,000 of the obligations owed under the Loan Agreement were transferred to Blue Sky Resources Ltd. (“Blue Sky”).
     
  (iv) On September 17, 2018, the Company entered into a loan agreement with a third party for $200,000 to acquire an additional 3% working interest in the Canadian Properties. The loan bears interest at 12% per annum and has a maturity date of October 17, 2019. Payments of principal and interest in the amount of $6,000 are due monthly. The loan is secured against the Company’s 3% working interest in the Canadian Properties and has no financial covenants.

The CEO of Jovian is Quinten Beasley, our former director (resigned October 31, 2018), and 25% of Jovian is owned by Zel C. Khan, our CEO and director. The initial agreement was for a period of 6 months and it can be extended for up to 5 additional terms of 6 months each. All amounts advanced pursuant to the LOC will bear interest from the date of advance until paid in full at 3.5% simple interest per annum.

  (iii) On August 17, 2018, the Company sold an aggregate of $90,000 in convertible promissory notes (the “Director Convertible Notes”), to the Company’s directors, Ivar Siem ($20,000) through an entity that he is affiliated with; Leo Womack ($60,000); and Joel Oppenheim ($10,000). The Director Convertible Notes accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum until paid in full and were due and payable on October 17, 2018. The amount owed may be prepaid at any time without penalty. The outstanding principal and interest owed under the Director Convertible Notes are convertible into common stock of the Company, from time to time, at the option of the holders of the notes, at a conversion price of $0.10 per share. As additional consideration for entering into the notes, the Company agreed to grant warrants to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.10 per share for each dollar loaned pursuant to the Director Convertible Notes (the “Bridge Note Warrants”). The warrants had a contractual life of one year. As such, the Company granted (a) 20,000 Bridge Note Warrants to an entity affiliated with Ivar Siem; (b) 60,000 Bridge Note Warrants to Leo Womack; and (c) 10,000 Bridge Note Warrants to Joel Oppenheim. The Director Convertible Notes contain standard and customary events of default. The Company fair valued the warrants issued using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model for a total fair value of $6,249. On October 22, 2018, $60,000 in Director Convertible Notes were settled by offsetting against $60,000 proceeds required for the exercise of warrants.
     
  (iv) On June 8, 2018, the Company entered into a promissory note (the “Acquisition Note”) with Blue Sky in the amount of CAD$406,181. The Note bears interest at 9% per annum and is due in full at maturity on November 30, 2018. The Company may, at its sole discretion, extend the maturity date for a period of six months with notice to the lender and payment of 25% of the principal amount. At December 31, 2018, the maturity date had been extended to May 31, 2019. On April 1, 2019, the Company utilized its LOC with Jovian to pay off in its entirety the June 8, 2018 Acquisition Note with Blue Sky.

7. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

On May 18, 2018, as an inducement to enter into an Amended and Restated Loan Agreement, the Company issued, among other instruments, warrants to acquire 320,000 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.10 per share in Canadian dollars (see Note 5). The warrants are valued using the Black Scholes Option Pricing Model and the derivative is fair valued at the end of each reporting period. The Company valued the derivative liability at initial recognition as $30,012.

 

A summary of the activity of the Company’s derivative liabilities is shown below:

 

     
Balance, January 1, 2018  $

8. ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATIONS

 

The Company has a number of oil and gas wells in production and will have Asset Retirement Obligations (“AROs”) once the wells are permanently removed from service. The primary obligations involve the removal and disposal of surface equipment, plugging and abandoning the wells and site restoration.

 

AROs associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets are recognized as liabilities with an increase to the carrying amounts of the related long-lived assets in the period incurred. The fair value of AROs is recognized as of the acquisition date of the working interest. The cost of the tangible asset, including the asset retirement cost, is depleted over the life of the asset. AROs are recorded at estimated fair value, measured by reference to the expected future cash outflows required to satisfy the retirement obligations discounted at the Company’s credit-adjusted risk-free interest rate. Accretion expense is recognized over time as the discounted liabilities are accreted to their expected settlement value. If estimated future costs of AROs change, an adjustment is recorded to both the ARO and the long-lived asset. Revisions to estimated AROs can result from changes in retirement cost estimates, revisions to estimated discount rates and changes in the estimated timing of abandonment.

 

The Company’s ARO is measured using primarily Level 3 inputs. The significant unobservable inputs to this fair value measurement include estimates of plugging costs, remediation costs, inflation rate and well life. The inputs are calculated based on historical data as well as current estimated costs. For the Canadian properties, abandonment and reclamation liabilities are prescribed by the province in which the Company operates in. For the purpose of determining the fair value of AROs incurred during the years presented, the Company used the following assumptions:

 

   December 31, 2018 
Inflation rate   1.92 - 2.15%
Estimated asset life   15 - 21 years 

 

The following table shows the change in the Company’s ARO liability:

 

   Canadian properties   United States properties   Total 
Asset retirement obligations, December 31, 2017  $   $473,868   $473,868 
Additions   1,313,882        1,313,982

9. EQUITY

 

Preferred stock

 

The holders of Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to receive cumulative dividends at a rate of 9% per annum. The Preferred Stock will automatically convert into common stock when the Company’s common stock market price equals or exceeds $0.28 per share for 30 consecutive days. At conversion, the value of each dollar of preferred stock (based on a $10 per share price) will convert into 7.1429 common shares (which results in a $0.14 per common share conversion rate).

 

In accordance with the terms of the Preferred Stock, cumulative dividends of $44,184 were declared for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

12. REVISION OF PRIOR PERIOD INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

While preparing the interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the period ending September 30, 2018, Management identified that it had made an incorrect judgment in accounting for the acquisition of Bow on February 27, 2018. Accordingly, the Company has revised the comparative figures for three months ended March 31, 2018 to reflect this revision. The revision had no impact on the financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

 14 
 

 

In accordance with the guidance provided by the SEC’s Staff Accounting Bulletin 99, Materiality and Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 108, “Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements”, the Company has determined that the impact of adjustments relating to the correction of this accounting error was derived from a judgment, has no impact on compliance with regulatory requirements or loan covenants and has no impact on the Company’s cash flows. Accordingly, these changes are disclosed herein and have been disclosed prospectively.

 

The impact of the revision for the three months ended March 31, 2018 is summarized below:

Item 2 Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Background

 

We were incorporated in Colorado on January 16, 2002. In February 2012, we decided it would be in the best interests of our shareholders to no longer pursue our original business plan (the sale of custom framed artwork, art accessories and interior design consulting) and, in April 2012, we became active in the exploration and development of oil and gas properties.

 

Effective September 2, 2016, we formally changed our name to Petrolia Energy Corporation, pursuant to the filing of a Statement of Conversion with the Secretary of State of Colorado and a Certificate of Conversion with the Secretary of State of Texas, authorized by the Plan of Conversion which was approved by our stockholders at our April 14, 2016, annual meeting of stockholders, each of which are described in greater detail in the Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 23, 2016. In addition to the Certificate of Conversion filing, we filed a Certificate of Correction filing with the Secretary of State of Texas (correcting certain errors in our originally filed Certificate of Formation) on August 24, 2016.

 

As previously reported, although the stockholders approved the Plan of Conversion at the annual meeting, pursuant to which our corporate jurisdiction was to be changed from the State of Colorado to the State of Texas by means of a process called a “Conversion” and our name was to be changed to “Petrolia Energy Corporation”, those filings were not immediately made and the Conversion did not become legally effective until September 2, 2016. Specifically, on June 15, 2016, the Company filed a Certificate of Conversion with the Texas Secretary of State, affecting the Conversion and the name change, and including a Certificate of Formation as a converted Texas corporation; however, the Statement of Conversion was not filed with the State of Colorado until a later date. As a result, and because FINRA and the Depository Trust Company (DTC) had advised us that they would not recognize the Conversion or name change, or update such related information in the marketplace until we became current in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and they had a chance to review and approve such transactions, we took the position that the Conversion and name change were not legally effective until September 2, 2016.

 

As a result of the filings described above, and FINRA and the Depository Trust Company (DTC) formally recognizing and reflecting the events described above in the marketplace, the Company has formally converted from a Colorado corporation to a Texas corporation, and has formally changed its name to “Petrolia Energy Corporation”.

 

Two significant acquisitions were made in 2015 and additional working interests in the same properties were acquired in 2016 and 2017, as described in greater detail in the “Plan of Operation” section below. Additionally, in February 2018, we acquired Bow Energy Ltd. and its assets (“Bow”), provided that in September 2018, we divested Bow, each as described in greater detail in the “Plan of Operation” section below. During 2018, we acquired an aggregate of a 28% working interest in properties consisting of approximately 41,526 acres located in the Luseland, Hearts Hill, and Cuthbert fields, located in Southwest Saskatchewan and Eastern Alberta, Canada, as described in greater detail in the “Plan of Operation” section below.

Plan of Operation

 

Since 2015, we have established a clearly defined strategy to acquire, enhance and redevelop high-quality, resource in place assets. The Company has been focusing on acquisitions in the Southwest United States and Canada while actively pursuing our strategy to offer low-cost operational solutions in established Oil and Gas regions. We believe our mix of assets-oil-in-place conventional plays, low-risk resource plays and the redevelopment of our late-stage plays is a solid foundation for continued growth and future revenue growth.

 

Our strategy is to acquire low risk, conventionally producing oil fields. This strategy allows us to incorporate new technology to minimize risk and maximize the recoverability of existing reservoirs. This approach allows us to minimize the environmental impact caused by exploratory development.

 

Our activities will primarily be dependent upon available financing.

 

Oil and gas leases are considered real property. Title to properties which we may acquire will be subject to landowner’s royalties, overriding royalties, carried working and other similar interests and contractual arrangements customary in the oil and gas industry, to liens for current taxes not yet due, liens for amounts owing to persons operating wells, and other encumbrances. As is customary in the industry, in the case of undeveloped properties, little investigation of record title will be made at the time of acquisition (other than a preliminary review of local records). However, drilling title opinions may be obtained before commencement of drilling operations.

 

Minerva-Rockdale Field

 

The Minerva-Rockdale Field, which is located approximately 30 miles Northeast of Austin, Texas, was first discovered in 1921 and is approximately 50 square miles in size. The main producing formation for this field is the Upper Cretaceous Navarro Group of sands and shales. The Navarro is typically subdivided into several producing zones from the uppermost “A” and “B” sands to the lower “C” and “D” sands. The “B” sand is the primary producing zone. These sands are commonly fine grained and poorly sorted and were deposited close to a shoreline during a cycle of marine regression.

 

In April 2013, the Company entered into a lease pertaining to a 423-acre tract in Milam County, Texas, which is adjacent to the Company’s original 200 acre lease. The Company issued 500,000 shares of its common stock as consideration for a 100% working interest (83.33% net revenue interest) in such lease.

 

In August 2013, we became an oil and gas operator and took over the operation of 100% of our wells. During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company hired Jovian Petroleum Corporation (“Jovian”) to survey the operations and well performance at the NOACK field. Their report identified paraffin buildup problems in the well bores and gathering lines as the main production issue for the Company to overcome. In December 2014, the Company signed an operating agreement with Jovian to assume full operational responsibility for the NOACK field under a fixed fee agreement of $10,000 per month for full operating field services. On March 1, 2015, the Company hired Zel C. Khan, our current CEO and director, who is a stockholder and former employee of Jovian. The CEO and President of Jovian is Quinten Beasley, our former director (resigned October 31, 2018).

 

During the period from our inception to December 31, 2011, we did not drill any oil or gas wells. During the year-ended December 31, 2012, we drilled and completed six (6) oil wells. During 2013, the Company drilled and completed three (3) wells of which one (1) was converted to an injection well. During 2014, the Company drilled seven (7) new wells. In 2015, six (6) of the wells were completed, five (5) wells produced, one (1) did not produce, and one (1) well was not completed. During 2016, the Company had three (3) wells producing, ten (10) wells to workover, with one (1) injection well, one (1) that did not produce, and one (1) well not completed. During 2017, the Company had four (4) wells producing, ten (10) wells to workover, with one (1) injection well, and one (1) well not completed. During 2018, the Company had six (6) wells producing, eight (8) wells to workover, with one (1) injection well, and one (1) well not completed. During 2019 to date, the Company had six (6) wells producing, eight (8) wells to workover, with one (1) injection well, and one (1) well not completed.

On November 1, 2018, the Company entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (“PSA”) with Crossroads Petroleum L.L.C. and Houston Gulf Energy (“HGE”) to sell 100% working interest in the NOACK field assets located in Milam County, Texas (the “NOACK Assets”). The Sale Agreement included customary indemnification obligations of the parties. HGE agreed to pay $375,000 for the NOACK Assets plus $5,000 per month, on a month-to-month basis, until they are granted official operatorship by the Railroad Commission, the payment plan was as follows: (a) a $13,500 deposit which was made on October 12, 2018; (b) $121,500 which was paid on November 7, 2018, (c) $60,000 which was paid on February 8, 2019; (d) $65,000 which was paid on February 28, 2019; and (e) $125,000 which was due March 31, 2019 and was not paid. The sale had an effective date of November 1, 2018. Until paid in full, the Company maintained a secured lien against the assets sold which could be foreclosed upon after a 30-day cure period. The Company recognized impairment on the property of $2,322,255 on September 30, 2018, to write it down to its sale price. Upon sale, the Company derecognized the cost and accumulated depletion and impairment with no gain or loss and removed the carrying value of the ARO of $246,263 from the cost pool of the United States properties. As of March 31, 2019, the balance receivable for the sale of $120,000 is included in other current assets.

 

HGE defaulted on the PSA as described above and the Company took proper measures to foreclose on the NOACK Assets on April 3, 2019 and reclaimed title to the property. The property was subsequently sold to FlowTex Energy L.L.C. for $400,000 with an effective closing date of September 1, 2019. The Sale Agreement includes customary indemnification obligations of the parties. As per the Sale Agreement, a $20,000 deposit was received on August 15, 2019 and a $355,000 payment on August 30, 2019; a $25,000 payment is due on August 30, 2020.

 

Slick Unit Dutcher Sands (“SUDS”) Field

 

The SUDS oilfield consists of 2,600 acres located in Creek County, Oklahoma and carries a 76.5% net revenue interest (NRI). The first oil producer was completed in 1918 by Standard Oil of Ohio (“Sohio”), which at that time was owned by John D. Rockefeller. By 1959, approximately 14,000,000 barrels of oil had been recovered at an average well depth of 3,100 feet and over 100 wells in production. Through a series of events, the infrastructure had deteriorated, and the field suffered a lot of neglect. Since 2011, Jovian has invested an estimated $1.6 million into the restoration of the field; rebuilding the infrastructure and putting wells back in production. To date, 22 wells have been worked over and 9 are fully operational with considerable reserves remaining.

 

The Company has developed a new well drill plan alongside its consultant geologist, RKR Services Company, LLC. (“RKR”). RKR interpreted the Initial Potential Flow map, the Net Dutcher Sands map, and the top of Dutcher Sand Structure map for the optimum locations of five proposed new drill wells in the SUDS field. The new well locations are situated in those locations where oil saturations are projected to be the highest. The Company intends to drill these 5 wells in the 1st Quarter of 2020, funding permitted.

 

SUDS 10% Acquisition

 

The Company acquired a 10% working interest in the SUDS field located in Creek County, Oklahoma on September 23, 2015, in exchange for 10,586,805 shares of restricted common stock. Based on the then current market value of our common stock, $0.068 per share, the price paid was $719,903 or $4.77 dollars per barrel of oil (Bbl). Through this transaction, the Company increased its reserve base by approximately 151,000 Bbls of (1P) proven reserves. Concurrently with the purchase, Jovian agreed to assign to the Company the right to be the operator of record of the SUDS field, governed by an American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) standard Joint Operating Agreement (JOA).

 

SUDS 90% Acquisition

 

On the effective date of September 28, 2016, the Company acquired a 90% net working interest in the SUDS field as a result of two separate agreements, Purchase and Sale Agreement and the Share Exchange Agreement, both between the Company and Jovian.

 

The Company issued two notes for a combined value of $4,000,000 in exchange for a cumulative 50% working interest in SUDS. A Promissory Note to Jovian for $1,000,000 was executed bearing interest at 5% and due on December 31, 2016 related to the acquisition of a 50% working interest in the SUDS field. The Promissory Note was secured by a 12.5% undivided working interest in the SUDS field. In addition, a Production Payment Note was executed for the same 50% working interest in the SUDS field. This note was for $3,000,000, paid out of twenty percent (20%) of the 50% undivided interest of net revenues received by the Company that is attributable to the SUDS field assets. The Production Payment Note was secured by a 12.5% undivided working interest in the SUDS field.

 

 19 
 

 

The Company issued 24,308,985 shares of its restricted common stock to Jovian to acquire an additional 40% working interest ownership of SUDS. The purchase price of the shares equates to a $4,373,186 value, based on the $0.1799 per share market price of our common stock on September 28, 2016 (the effective date of the transaction).

 

Jovian converted its outstanding $4,000,000 of debt in two tranches, a $2,000,000 first tranche on May 30, 2017 and a $2,000,000 second tranche on July 19, 2017. Although the two transactions occurred in different reporting periods, the two transactions were contemplated together, and they were accounted for as one extinguishment that was accomplished in two tranches, the first in May 2017 and the second in July 2017.

 

Tranche 1 - On May 30, 2017, Jovian converted $2 million of its $4 million debt into 10 million shares of the Company’s common stock. The $2 million debt included a $1 million Promissory Note and $1 million of the $3 million Production Payment Note as well as interest payable of $33,151.

 

Tranche 2 - On July 19, 2017, Jovian converted $2 million of its remaining debt (outstanding under a Production Payment Note) into 12,749,286 shares of the Company’s common stock and 21,510 shares of the Company’s Preferred Stock.

 

The consideration for the debt extinguished consisted of the following:

 

  10 million shares of common stock which were valued using the market price on the date of issuance of $0.14 per share ($1,400,000).
  Warrants to purchase 6 million shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.20 per share based on a $0.12 valuation, volatility of 293%, a discount rate of 1.09% and warrants to purchase 4 million shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.35 per share based on a $0.12 valuation, volatility of 293%, and a discount rate of 1.09%. All warrants expire in 3 years. The 6 million warrants were valued at $709,776 while the 4 million warrants were valued at $471,104, totaling $1,180,880.
  12,749,286 shares of common stock which were valued using the market price on the date of issuance of $0.104 per share ($1,325,926).
  The Preferred Stock was valued at $10.00 per share, the cash price paid by third party investors for the same stock with an aggregate value of $215,100.

 

The combination of the two transactions resulted in an $88,755 loss which was recognized in the second quarter of 2017. The extinguishment of tranche 2 was recognized in the third quarter of 2017, with no impact on the consolidated statement of operations.

 

The Company is currently working on a 5 well drill program where 5 infill locations have been identified already and are planned to be drilled in the first quarter of 2020, funding permitting.

 

Twin Lakes San Andres Unit (“TLSAU”) Field

 

TLSAU is located 45 miles from Roswell, Chaves County, New Mexico and consists of 4,864 acres with 130 wells. The last independent reserve report prepared by MKM Engineering on December 31, 2018, reflects approximately 1.6 million barrels of proven oil reserves remaining for the 100% working interest. As of March 31, 2019, the Company took control of thirty-eight (38) wells of which twenty-one (21) were re-worked of which three (3) wells remain producing and the remaining wells experienced repairable mechanical failure after several weeks of production. Five (5) wells were dedicated for injection purpose and are awaiting permits from the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department. Petrolia owns a 100% working interest in the field and is the designated Operator.

 

TLSAU 15% Acquisition

 

On November 4, 2015, the Company acquired a 15% net working interest in the TLSAU field located in Chaves County, New Mexico (the “Net Working Interest”) and all operating equipment on the field. Through this transaction, the Company increased its reserve base by approximately 384,800 Bbls of (1P) proven reserves. The Company was also assigned all rights to be the operator of the TLSAU unit under a standard operating agreement.

 

 20 
 

 

The total purchase price for the acquisition of the Net Working Interest and equipment rights was $196,875 or $0.52 per barrel of oil (Bbl) and was paid to Blue Sky NM, Inc. (“BSNM”). The Company paid $50,000 in cash and gave a promissory note in the amount of $146,875. The $50,000 was paid by the CEO of the Company for the benefit of the Company and recorded as a shareholder advance. Subsequently, the $50,000 advance was converted into 800,000 shares of common stock at $0.06 per share and warrants to purchase 800,000 shares of common stock that have since expired as they had a three (3) year term at an exercise price of $0.10. In addition, a $1.3 million face value note payable to BSNM was purchased for $316,800 (the “BSNM Note”) (6,000,000 shares of common stock valued at $0.0528 per share). With the inclusion of the note receivable, the price per barrel would have been $1.33 dollars per barrel of oil (Bbl).

 

TLSAU 25% Acquisition

 

On September 1, 2016, the Company acquired an additional 25% working interest ownership in the TLSAU field in consideration for the issuance of 3,500,000 shares of its restricted common stock to an unrelated party. The purchase price of the shares equates to a $350,000 value, based on the $0.10 per share market price of Petrolia’s shares on September 1, 2016. After the purchase, the Company owned a total working interest ownership of 40%. The final purchase price allocation of the transaction is as follows: oil and gas properties acquired $392,252, and asset retirement obligations assumed of $42,252.

 

TLSAU 60% Acquisition

 

Effective February 12, 2017, the Company acquired an additional 60% working interest ownership in the TLSAU field (the “Net Working Interest”) resulting from the execution of a Settlement Agreement on February 12, 2017. The agreement assigned Dead Aim Investments’ (“Dead Aim’s”) 60% ownership interests to the Company. As a result of this transaction, Petrolia now owns a 100% working interest in TLSAU. Consideration of $465,788 was given in exchange for Dead Aim’s working interest. The consideration includes the forgiveness of the BSNM Note of $316,800 (with a $1.3 million face value) which we acquired in November 2015 and the write-off of $148,988 of Dead Aim’s outstanding accounts receivable to Petrolia. Dead Aim assumed liability (prior to the acquisition) for the forgiveness of the Orbit Petroleum Inc Bankruptcy Estate (“OPBE”) note that the Company previously purchased.

 

Since the acquisition of this field, the Company has worked on various environmental remediation and compliance items required by the New Mexico Energy Department. To date, the Company has worked over twenty-one (21) wells. As of the end of the 3rd Quarter of 2019, the Company has resumed its workover plan to bring additional wells online and update the general facility infrastructure, such as electric lines, flow lines and roadways.

 

The Company is actively seeking a partnership in developing the San Andres formation at this lease.

 

Askarii Resources, LLC

 

Effective February 1, 2016, the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding interests of Askarii Resources LLC (“Askarii”), a private Texas based oil & gas service company. The Company acquired Askarii by issuing one (1) million restricted shares of common stock. Based on the then market value of the Company’s common stock of $0.05 per share, the aggregate value of the transaction was $50,000.

 

Askarii, while dormant for the last few years, has a significant history with major oil companies providing services both onshore and offshore- Gulf of Mexico. Using Askarii, the Company plans to engage in the oil field service business as well as the leasing of field related heavy equipment. It is also contemplated that Askarii will research various enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technologies and methods which it can use for the benefit of the Company’s oil fields.

On February 27, 2018, we acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares in Bow Energy Ltd., which has contracts covering a total land position in Indonesia of 948,029 net acres.

 

Effective on August 31, 2018, the Company entered into and closed the transactions contemplated by a Share Exchange Agreement with Blue Sky Resources Ltd. (“Blue Sky” and the “Exchange Agreement”) to sell Bow Energy Ltd. while retaining a 20% interest in Bow’s subsidiary, Bow Energy International Holdings Inc. (“BEIH”). The President, Chief Executive Officer and 100% owner of Blue Sky is Ilyas Chaudhary, the father of Zel C. Khan, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.

 

 21 
 

 

In connection with the closing of the Exchange Agreement, the Company cancelled shares of common stock previously held by Blue Sky (and affiliates) and returned such shares to the status of authorized but unissued shares of common stock. The 70,807,417 shares returned to treasury were subsequently cancelled.

 

Canadian properties – Luseland, Hearts Hill and Cuthbert fields

 

Effective on June 29, 2018, the Company acquired a 25% working interest in approximately 41,526 acres located in the Luseland, Hearts Hill, and Cuthbert fields, located in Southwest Saskatchewan and Eastern Alberta, Canada (collectively, the “Canadian Properties” and the “Working Interest”). The Canadian Properties currently encompass 64 sections, with 240 oil and 12 natural gas wells currently producing on the properties. Additionally, there are several idle wells with potential for reactivation and 34 sections of undeveloped land (approximately 21,760 acres). The Canadian Properties and the Working Interest were acquired from Blue Sky (a related party, as described above). Blue Sky had previously acquired an 80% working interest from Georox Resources Inc., who had acquired the Canadian Properties from Cona Resources Ltd.

 

On September 17, 2018, the Company entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Blue Sky to obtain the rights to acquire an additional 3% working interest in the Canadian Properties, increasing our Working Interest to 28%. Total consideration paid from the Company to Blue Sky for the additional 3% Working Interest was $150,000.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenues

 

Our oil and gas revenue reported for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $819,340, an increase of $789,360 from the three months ended March 31, 2018. A total of $796,776 of the increase was attributable to the new operations associated with the Canadian Properties which were acquired after March 31, 2018. Revenues associated with our U.S. properties totaled $22,564.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses decreased by $756,766, to $1,240,514 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, compared to $1,997,280 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Operating expenses decreased over the comparative period due to a significant decrease of $1,567,416 in general and administrative costs from highs in the prior period associated with stock-based compensation. The decrease was partially offset by an increase in lease operating expenses of $621,383 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to the prior period and an increase in depreciation, depletion and amortization expense for $186,058, both related to the acquisition of the Canadian properties on June 29, 2018.

Other income (expense)

 

Foreign exchange gain decreased by $35,913, to $17,425 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, compared to $53,338 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease resulted from fluctuations in the value of the United States dollar against the Canadian dollar.

 

Interest expense increased for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, compared to the three-month period ended March 31, 2018, by $9,162. The increase for the three months ended March 31, 2018, was due to a decrease in debt carried during the relevant period.

 

The Company incurred a gain of $19,075 for the three-month ended March 31, 2019, relating to the change in fair value of derivative liabilities. A derivative liability was recognized upon issuing Canadian dollar denominated warrants to a debt holder. The gain resulted primarily from time decay.

 

 22 
 

 

The Company recorded a loss on related party debt settlement of $203,349 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, relating to accrued salaries. No such loss was incurred in the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

The Company incurred a loss of $32,999,330 for the three-month ended March 31, 2018, relating to the acquisition of Bow Energy Ltd. No such loss was incurred in the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

Net Income (Loss)

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $413,600, compared to a net loss of $35,146,405 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The primary reason for the decrease in net loss is due to the loss on disposition of Bow Energy Ltd. of $32,999,330, which was incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The financial condition of the Company has not changed significantly throughout the period from December 31, 2018, to March 31, 2019.

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had total current assets of $338,411 and total assets of $12,586,952. Our total current liabilities as of March 31, 2019 were $2,736,319 and our total liabilities as of March 31, 2019 were $5,024,938. We had negative working capital of $2,397,908 as of March 31, 2019.

 

Our material asset balances are made up of oil and gas properties and related equipment. Our most significant liabilities are accounts payable and accrued liabilities, including amounts due to related parties, mainly consisting of accrued officer salaries of $1,840,239, in addition to asset retirement obligations and note payables of $1,546,386 and $1,640,375, respectively (see “Part I – Item 1. Financial Statements - Note 5. Notes Payable”, above for information regarding outstanding debt obligations).

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $190,283 and $309,075 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The decrease was primarily due to reductions in net loss.

 

Net cash provided by investing activities was $120,000 and $3,784 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase was primarily due to the funds used to acquire the Canadian Properties.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $67,188 and $231,880 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The decrease was primarily due to repayments of the notes payable of $156,330. Additionally, during the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, the Company did not sell securities, while the Company raised $238,675 during the prior comparative period through the sale of securities.

 

The Company continues to operate at a negative cash flow of approximately $35,000 per month which raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management is pursuing several initiatives to secure funding to increase production at both the SUDS and TLSAUs fields which together with anticipated increases in the price of crude oil may reduce the Company’s monthly cash shortfall. The total amount required by the Company to accomplish this objective is approximately $500,000. The sale of the NOACK field and the addition of the revenue from our 28% ownership of the Canadian Properties has enhanced cashflow and allowed the Company to allocate funds for SUDS and TLSAU development plans. The Company has resumed workover activities at SUDS and TLSAU and expects progress to continue past the first quarter of 2020, funding permitting.

 

The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. We plan to generate profits by working over existing wells and drilling productive oil or gas wells. However, we will need to raise additional funds to workover or drill new wells through the sale of our securities, through loans from third parties or from third parties willing to pay our share of drilling and completing the wells. We do not have any commitments or arrangements from any person to provide us with any additional capital. If additional financing is not available when needed, we may need to cease operations. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in raising the capital needed to drill oil or gas wells nor that any such additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms or at all. Any wells which we may drill may not be productive of oil or gas. Management believes that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern; no adjustments to the financial statements have been made to account for this uncertainty. Moving forward we may sell certain of our oil and gas properties in an effort to raise funds to support our operations and future planned oil and gas operations.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity or capital resources or change our financial condition.

 

Trends Affecting Future Operations

 

The factors that will most significantly affect our results of operations will be (i) the sale prices of crude oil and natural gas, (ii) the amount of production from oil or gas wells in which we have an interest, and (iii) lease operating expenses. Our revenues will also be significantly impacted by our ability to maintain or increase oil or gas production through exploration and development activities, and the availability of funding to complete such activities.

 

It is expected that our principal source of cash flow will be from the production and sale of crude oil and natural gas reserves which are depleting assets. Cash flow from the sale of oil and gas production depends upon the quantity of production and the price obtained for the production. An increase in prices will permit us to finance our operations to a greater extent with internally generated funds, may allow us to obtain equity financing more easily or on better terms, and lessens the difficulty of obtaining financing. However, price increases heighten the competition for oil and gas prospects, increase the costs of exploration and development, and, because of potential price declines, increase the risks associated with the purchase of producing properties during times that prices are at higher levels.

 

A decline in oil and gas prices (i) will reduce the cash flow internally generated by the Company which in turn will reduce the funds available for exploring for and replacing oil and gas reserves, (ii) will increase the difficulty of obtaining equity and debt financing and worsen the terms on which such financing may be obtained, (iii) will reduce the number of oil and gas prospects which have reasonable economic terms, (iv) may cause us to permit leases to expire based upon the value of potential oil and gas reserves in relation to the costs of exploration, (v) may result in marginally productive oil and gas wells being abandoned as non-commercial, and (vi) may increase the difficulty of obtaining financing. However, price declines reduce the competition for oil and gas properties and correspondingly reduce the prices paid for leases and prospects. During the last 5 months, oil prices have trended upward to approximately $58.00 per barrel.

Other than the foregoing, we do not know of any trends, events or uncertainties that will have, or are reasonably expected to have, a material impact on our sales, revenues or expenses.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and New Accounting Pronouncements

 

See Note 2 to the financial statements included in the 2018 Annual Report for a description of our critical accounting policies. See Note 2 to the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and the notes thereto included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a description of the impact of recently adopted accounting pronouncements and the potential impact of the adoption of any new accounting pronouncements.

 

Going concern – The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred cumulative net losses since its inception and requires capital for its contemplated operational and marketing activities to take place. The Company’s ability to raise additional capital through the future sales of common stock and other securities is unknown. The obtainment of additional financing, the successful development of the Company’s contemplated plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these aforementioned uncertainties.

Item 3 Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Pursuant to Item 305(e) of Regulation S-K (§ 229.305(e)), the Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined by Rule 229.10(f)(1).

 

Item 4 Controls and Procedures

 

(a) We maintain a system of controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Principal Executive and Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

As of March 31, 2019, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. Such disclosure controls and procedures were deemed ineffective due to material weaknesses in connection with disclosure and related issues associated with related party transactions involving the Company and its officers and directors, and recording, presentation and disclosure issues associated with acquisition transactions.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Controls. There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II: OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1 Legal Proceedings

 

We may, from time to time, be involved in litigation and claims arising out of our operations in the normal course of business. We are not currently a party to any material legal proceeding. In addition, we are not aware of any material legal or governmental proceedings against us, or contemplated to be brought against us.

 

Item 1A Risk Factors

 

There have been no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the Commission on October 15, 2019, under the heading “Risk Factors“, except as set forth below and investors should review the risks provided in the Form 10-K and below, prior to making an investment in the Company. The business, financial condition and operating results of the Company can be affected by a number of factors, whether currently known or unknown, including but not limited to those described in the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, under “Risk Factors“ and below, any one or more of which could, directly or indirectly, cause the Company’s actual financial condition and operating results to vary materially from past, or from anticipated future, financial condition and operating results. Any of these factors, in whole or in part, could materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition, operating results and stock price.

 

We are currently behind in our SEC filing obligations.

 

This filing is being filed well past the due date of such filing with the SEC. Additionally, as of the date of this filing, we are deficient in filing our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2019. While we hope to be in a position to file such reports in the near future, we may be unable to timely file such reports and may fail to timely further reports in the future. Shareholders may have less information to determine the value of our common stock if we fail to timely make filings with the SEC and/or fail to make such filings with the SEC. Our securities may be trading higher, or lower, than they would be if current information regarding our financial condition and results of operations was publicly available.

 

Debts owed to us may not be timely paid, if at all.

 

On April 3, 2019, the Company’s foreclosed on its promissory note receivable for the sale of the NOACK field, which was secured by lien under the note. On August 6, 2019, the Company entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (“PSA”) for the sale of the 83% leasehold net revenue interest and 100% working interest in the NOACK Field Assets, i.e., the Company’s leasehold in the Noack Farms, Minera Lease and all related leases and assets located in Milam County, Texas (the “NOACK Assets”). The Sale Agreement includes customary indemnification obligations of the parties. The purchaser agreed to pay $400,000 for the NOACK Assets with a $20,000 deposit received on August 15, 2019 and the entire balance of $355,000 to be received by September 30, 2019 (of which $155,000 was received on August 30, 2019 and the balance remains outstanding) with a final payment of $25,000 to be received on August 30, 2020. We may not receive the $225,000 owed to us pursuant to the agreement described above, which may have an adverse effect on our operations, cash flow and the value of our securities.
