NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

Note 1.

Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

 

A.

Interim Financial Statements - The interim consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by the management of Everflow Eastern Partners, L.P., without audit. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position and results of operations have been made.

     
    The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the disclosures normally required by GAAP, or those normally made in an Annual Report on Form 10-K, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. It is suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto which are incorporated in Everflow Eastern Partners, L.P.’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 26, 2020.
     
    The results of operations for the interim periods may not necessarily be indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

 

 

B.

Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates impacting the Company’s financial statements include revenue and expense accruals and oil and gas reserve quantities. In the oil and gas industry, and especially as related to the Company’s natural gas sales, the processing of actual transactions generally occurs 60-90 days after the month of delivery of its product. Consequently, accounts receivable from production and oil and gas sales are recorded using estimated production volumes and market or contract prices. Differences between estimated and actual amounts are recorded in subsequent period’s financial results. As is typical in the oil and gas industry, a significant portion of the Company’s accounts receivable from production and oil and gas sales consists of unbilled receivables. Oil and gas reserve quantities are utilized in the calculation of depreciation, depletion and amortization and the impairment of oil and gas wells and also impact the timing and costs associated with asset retirement obligations. The Company’s estimates, especially those related to oil and gas reserves, could change in the near term and could significantly impact the Company’s results of operations and financial position.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1.

Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

 

C.

Organization - Everflow Eastern Partners, L.P. (“Everflow”) is a Delaware limited partnership which was organized in September 1990 to engage in the business of oil and gas acquisition, exploration, development and production. Everflow was formed to consolidate the business and oil and gas properties of Everflow Eastern, Inc. (“EEI”) and subsidiaries and the oil and gas properties owned by certain limited partnership and working interest programs managed or sponsored by EEI (“EEI Programs” or the “Programs”).

     
    Everflow Management Limited, LLC (“EML”), an Ohio limited liability company, is the general partner of Everflow and, as such, is authorized to perform all acts necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes and conduct of the business of Everflow. The members of EML include Everflow Management Corporation ("EMC"), two individuals who are officers and directors of EEI, one individual who is the Chairman of the Board of EEI, and a private limited liability company which also serves as Everflow’s largest limited partner. EMC is an Ohio corporation formed in September 1990 and is the managing member of EML.

 

 

D.

Principles of Consolidation - The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Everflow, its wholly-owned subsidiaries, including EEI, and interests with joint venture partners (collectively, the “Company”), which are accounted for under the proportional consolidation method. All significant accounts and transactions between the consolidated entities have been eliminated.

 

 

E.

Cash and Equivalents - The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  The Company maintains, at various financial institutions, cash and equivalents which may exceed federally insured amounts and which may, at times, significantly exceed balance sheet amounts due to float. 

 

 

F.

Investments – The Company’s investments consist of shares held in a mutual fund that invests primarily in investment grade, U.S. dollar denominated short-term fixed and floating rate debt securities. The mutual fund seeks current income while seeking to maintain a low volatility of principal.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1.

Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

 

F.

Investments (continued)

     
    The Financial Accounting Standards Board established a framework for measuring fair value and expanded disclosures about fair value measurements by establishing a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs and defines valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives highest priority to Level I inputs and lowest priority to Level III inputs. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:
     
    Level I – Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical financial instruments as of the reporting date.
     
    Level II – Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date, and fair value is determined through the use of models or other valuation methodologies.
     
    Level III – Pricing inputs are unobservable for the financial instrument and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the financial instrument. The inputs into the determination of fair value require significant management judgment or estimation.
     
    The Company’s investments are carried at fair market value based on quoted prices available in active markets and are therefore classified as Level 1.

 

 

G.

Operational Advances - The Company collects and maintains funds on behalf of joint venture partners who own working interests in wells of which the Company operates for their anticipated share of future plugging and abandonment costs. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, cash and equivalents include $2,496,975 and $2,463,685, respectively, of operational advances. Operational advances held on behalf of employees, including officers, and directors were approximately $560,300 and $390,000 as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.

 

 

H.

Asset Retirement Obligations - GAAP requires the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation to be recognized in the period in which it is incurred if a reasonable estimate of fair value can be made. For the Company, these obligations include dismantlement, plugging and abandonment of oil and gas wells and associated pipelines and equipment. The associated asset retirement costs are capitalized as part of the carrying amount of the long-lived asset. The liability is accreted to its then present value each period, and the capitalized cost is depleted over the estimated useful life of the related asset.

Asset Retirement Obligations (continued)

     
    The estimated liability is based on historical experience in dismantling, plugging and abandoning wells, estimated remaining lives of those wells based on reserves estimates, estimates of the external cost to dismantle, plug and abandon the wells in the future and federal and state regulatory requirements. The liability is discounted using an assumed credit-adjusted, risk-free interest rate.
     
    Gain on disposal of property and equipment includes approximately $500,700 and $6,000 associated with non-cash settlements of asset retirement obligations during the three month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

 

I.

Revenue Recognition – Revenues from contracts with customers are recognized when performance obligations are satisfied in accordance with contractual terms.

     
    For the sale of crude oil and natural gas from operated properties, the Company generally considers each unit (BBL or MCF) to be a separate performance obligation. The transaction price may consist of fixed and variable consideration, in which the variable amount is determinable each production period and is recognized as revenue upon pickup/delivery of the crude oil or natural gas, which is the point in time that the customer obtains control of the crude oil or natural gas and the Company's performance obligation is satisfied.
     
    Crude oil and natural gas sales derived from third party operated wells are recognized under similar terms as sales of crude oil and natural gas from operated properties and revenue is recognized at a point in time when the product is delivered, the purchaser obtains control and the Company's performance obligation is satisfied.
     
    Crude oil and natural gas sales represent the Company's share of revenues, net of royalties and other revenue interests owned by other parties. When settling crude oil and natural gas on behalf of royalty owners or working interest owners, the Company is acting as an agent and thus reports the revenue on a net basis.
     
    Based on the Company's judgment, the Company's performance obligations have been satisfied and an unconditional right to consideration exists at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively; therefore, the Company recognized amounts due from contracts with customers as production accounts receivable within the Company’s consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.
     
    The Company utilizes the sales method to account for gas production volume imbalances. Under this method, revenue is recognized only when gas is produced and sold on the Company’s behalf. The Company had no material gas imbalances at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.

I.

Revenue Recognition (continued)

     
    The Company participates (and may act as drilling contractor) with unaffiliated and affiliated joint venture partners, employees, including officers, and directors in the drilling, development and operation of jointly owned oil and gas properties. Each owner, including the Company, has an undivided interest in the jointly owned properties. Generally, the joint venture partners, employees and directors participate on the same drilling/development cost basis as the Company and, therefore, no revenue, expense or income is recognized on the drilling and development of the properties. Well management and operating revenues are derived from a variety of both verbal and written operating agreements with joint venture partners and are recognized monthly as services are provided and properties are managed and operated. Other revenues consist of miscellaneous revenues that are recognized at the time services are rendered, the Company has a contractual right to such revenue and collection is reasonably assured.
     
  J. Income Taxes - Everflow is not a tax-paying entity and the net taxable income or loss, other than the taxable income or loss allocable to EEI, which is a C corporation owned by Everflow, will be allocated directly to its respective partners. The Company is not able to determine the net difference between the tax bases and the reported amounts of Everflow’s assets and liabilities due to separate elections that were made by owners of the working interests and limited partnership interests that comprised the Programs.
     
    The Company believes that it has appropriate support for any tax positions taken and, as such, does not have any uncertain tax positions that are material to the financial statements. 

 

 

K.

Allocation of Income and Per Unit Data - Under the terms of the limited partnership agreement, initially, 99% of revenues and costs were allocated to the Unitholders (the limited partners) and 1% of revenues and costs were allocated to the General Partner. Such allocation has changed and may change in the future due to Unitholders electing to exercise the Repurchase Right and select officers and employees electing to exercise options (see Note 3).

     
    Earnings per limited partner Unit have been computed based on the weighted average number of Units outstanding during each period presented.

 

 

L.

New Accounting Standards - The Company has reviewed recently issued accounting standards in order to determine their effects, if any, on the consolidated financial statements. Based on that review, the Company believes that none of these standards will have a significant effect on current or future earnings or results of operations.

Partners’ Equity

   
  Units represent limited partnership interests in Everflow. The Units are transferable subject to the approval of EML and to the laws governing the transfer of securities. The Units are not listed for trading on any securities exchange nor are they quoted in the automated quotation system of a registered securities association. However, Unitholders may have an opportunity to require Everflow to repurchase their Units pursuant to the Repurchase Right.

 

 

EVERFLOW EASTERN PARTNERS, L.P.

Note 3.

Partners’ Equity (Continued)

   
  The partnership agreement provides that Everflow will repurchase for cash up to 10% of the then outstanding Units, to the extent Unitholders offer Units to Everflow for repurchase pursuant to the Repurchase Right. The Repurchase Right entitles any Unitholder, between May 1 and June 30 of each year, to notify Everflow that the Unitholder elects to exercise the Repurchase Right and have Everflow acquire certain or all Units. The price to be paid for any such Units is calculated based upon the audited financial statements of the Company as of December 31 of the year prior to the year in which the Repurchase Right is to be effective and independently prepared reserve reports. The price per Unit equals 66% of the adjusted book value of the Company allocable to the Units, divided by the number of Units outstanding at the beginning of the year in which the applicable Repurchase Right is to be effective less interim cash distributions received by a Unitholder. The adjusted book value is calculated by adding partners’ equity, the Standardized Measure of Discounted Future Net Cash Flows and the tax effect included in the Standardized Measure and subtracting from that sum the carrying value of oil and gas properties (net of undeveloped lease costs). If more than 10% of the then outstanding Units are tendered during any period during which the Repurchase Right is to be effective, the Investors’ Units tendered shall be prorated for purposes of calculating the actual number of Units to be acquired during any such period. The price associated with the 2020 Repurchase Right, based upon the December 31, 2019 calculation, is expected to be $0.86 per Unit, net of a $0.25 per Unit distribution made in April 2020.
   
  In June 2019, the Company repurchased 86,388 Units pursuant to the Repurchase Right at a price of $1.50 per Unit. In June 2018, the Company repurchased 68,261 Units pursuant to the Repurchase Right at a price of $0.11 per Unit. The Company did not offer to repurchase any Units pursuant to the Repurchase Right during 2017 because the price associated with the Repurchase Right was negative.
   
  The Company has an Option Repurchase Plan (the “Option Plan”) which permits the grant of options to select officers and employees to purchase certain Units acquired by the Company pursuant to the Repurchase Right. The purpose of the Option Plan is to assist the Company to attract and retain officers and other key employees and to enable those individuals to acquire or increase their ownership interest in the Company in order to encourage them to promote the growth and profitability of the Company. The Option Plan is designed to align directly the financial interests of the participants with the financial interests of the Unitholders. The Company granted 30,000 options to officers and key employees in June 2019 and 2018, respectively. All options granted were exercised on the same date. The Company did not grant any options in 2017.
   
  All Units repurchased pursuant to the Repurchase Right are retired except for those Units issued through the exercise of options pursuant to the Option Plan. There were 5,492,967 outstanding Units following the Company’s repurchase of Units and issuance of options in June 2019. There were no instruments outstanding at March 31, 2020 or 2019 that would potentially dilute net income per Unit.

Note 4.

Commitments and Contingencies

   
  The Company operates exclusively in Ohio and Pennsylvania of the United States in the business of oil and gas acquisition, exploration, development and production. The Company operates in an environment with many financial risks, including, but not limited to, the ability to acquire additional economically recoverable oil and gas reserves, the inherent risks of the search for, development of and production of oil and gas, the ability to sell oil and gas at prices which will provide attractive rates of return, the volatility and seasonality of oil and gas production and prices, and the highly competitive and, at times, seasonal nature of the industry and worldwide economic conditions. The Company’s ability to expand its reserve base and diversify its operations is also dependent upon the Company’s ability to obtain the necessary capital through operating cash flow, borrowings or equity offerings. Various federal, state and governmental agencies are considering, and some have adopted, laws and regulations regarding environmental protection which could adversely affect the proposed business activities of the Company. The Company cannot predict what effect, if any, current and future regulations may have on the operations of the Company.
   
  The Company has multiple contracts with Dominion Field Services (“Dominion”) which obligate Dominion to purchase, and the Company to sell and deliver, certain quantities of natural gas production from the Company’s oil and gas properties throughout the contract periods. Management believes the Company can meet its delivery commitments based on estimated production.
   
  In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel strain of the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) a global pandemic. COVID-19 has led to global shutdowns as governments imposed regulations in efforts to control the spread of COVID-19. As a result, physical and economic uncertainties have arisen which have negatively impacted the Company’s operations, cash flows and financial position.
   
  In March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“the CARES Act”) was enacted into law. The CARES Act, among several other economic stimulus benefits, established the United States Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”). In April 2020, EEI applied and was approved for a $327,000 loan associated with the PPP.
   
  The Company is party to various legal proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of its business. The Company believes that the outcome of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position, results of operations, or liquidity.

 

 
 

 

 

Item 2.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion is intended to assist in the understanding of the Company’s liquidity, capital resources and results of operations. It is suggested that this information be read in conjunction with the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements, the related notes to consolidated financial statements and the Company’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 26, 2020.

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel strain of the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) a global pandemic. COVID-19 has led to global shutdowns as governments imposed regulations in efforts to control the spread of COVID-19. As a result, physical and economic uncertainties have arisen which have negatively impacted the Company’s operations, cash flows and financial condition.

Working capital of $28.9 million as of March 31, 2020 represented a decrease of $667,000 from December 31, 2019, due primarily to decreases in cash and equivalents, investments and production accounts receivable, and an increase in accounts payable, offset somewhat by a decrease in accrued expenses. The decrease in cash and equivalents is primarily the result of cash provided by operating activities and existing cash and equivalents being used in investing activities. The decrease in investments is primarily the result of unrealized market losses, offset somewhat by additional purchases of shares in a mutual fund that invests primarily in investment grade, short-term fixed and floating rate debt securities. The decrease in production accounts receivable is primarily the result of decreases in average crude oil and natural gas prices received during the current receivable period as compared to the prior comparable receivable period, offset somewhat by an increase in natural gas volumes produced and decreases in production costs incurred during the current receivable period as compared to the prior comparable receivable period. The increase in volumes produced is primarily the result of additional Company operated wells producing during the current receivable period that were otherwise voluntarily shut-in during the prior comparable receivable period. The decrease in production costs incurred is primarily associated with production reported by third party operators. The increase in accounts payable is primarily the result of additional other payables recognized at March 31, 2020 in association with the disposal of various oil and gas properties made during the three month period ending March 31, 2020. The decrease in accrued expenses is primarily the result of all payroll and retirement contributions accrued at December 31, 2019 being paid during the three months ended March 31, 2020, as well as less asset retirement obligations being classified as current liabilities at March 31, 2020 as compared to December 31, 2019.

 

 

The Company generally funds its operations with cash generated by operations and/or existing cash and equivalent balances. In April 2020, the Company was approved for a $327,000 loan associated with the United States Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program. The Company has no other borrowings and no other principal indebtedness is outstanding as of May 10, 2020.

 

The Company’s cash flow provided by operations before the change in working capital was $208,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2020, a decrease of $1.4 million as compared to $1.6 million of cash flow provided by operations before the change in working capital during the prior comparable period. Changes in working capital from operations other than cash and equivalents decreased cash by $153,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. Cash flows provided by operating activities was $54,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The Company used existing cash and equivalents to fund the payment of a Unitholder distribution amounting to approximately $1.4 million in April 2020.

 

Management of the Company believes cash flows and existing cash and equivalents should be sufficient to meet the current funding requirements of ongoing operations, capital investments to develop and/or purchase oil and gas properties and the repurchase of Units pursuant to the 2020 repurchase right.

 

The Company has multiple contracts with Dominion Field Services (“Dominion”) which obligate Dominion to purchase, and the Company to sell and deliver, certain quantities of natural gas production from the Company’s oil and gas properties throughout the contract periods. Management believes the Company can meet its delivery commitments based on estimated production.

Revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 decreased $1.5 million, or 52%, as compared to the prior comparable period. The decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in crude oil and natural gas sales.

 

Crude oil and natural gas sales decreased $1.5 million, or 55%, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period. The decrease was primarily the result of less natural gas and crude oil volumes produced, as well as lower average natural gas and crude oil prices received, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period. The decrease in volumes produced was primarily the result of less reported volumes recognized from third party operated properties, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period.

 

Production costs decreased $177,000, or 21%, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period. The decrease was primarily the result of less costs recognized in association with third party operated properties during the three month period ended March 31, 2020, as well as decreases in various repairs and maintenance expenses associated with Company operated properties during the three month period ended March 31, 2020, each as compared to the prior comparable period.

 

 

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (“DD&A”) increased $70,000, or 61%, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period. The primary reasons for the increase are lower projected crude oil and natural gas reserves during the three month period ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period. The decrease in projected crude oil and natural gas reserves is primarily the result of lower benchmark crude oil and natural gas prices indexed throughout the first three months of 2020 as compared to the benchmark prices indexed throughout the prior comparable period. The lower 2020 benchmark prices project to decrease reserves at December 31, 2020, the next scheduled valuation date, which will decrease the average economic life of the Company’s oil and gas properties as compared to December 31, 2019, the prior valuation date. The effect that lower projected crude oil and natural gas reserves had on DD&A was offset somewhat by less crude oil and natural gas volumes produced during the three month period ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period.

 

Other income increased $128,000, or 59%, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to prior comparable period. The primary reason for the increase was the result of an increase in gain on disposal of property and equipment recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior comparable period, offset somewhat by the effect of investment loss recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to investment gain recognized during the prior comparable period. The increase in gain on disposal of property and equipment was primarily the result of the Company selling substantially all of its interests in 190 oil and gas properties during the three month period ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the sale of 1 oil and gas property during the prior comparable period. The Company recognized $261,000 of unrealized loss on investments during the three month period ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $51,000 of unrealized gain on investments recognized during the prior comparable period.        

 

The Company reported net income of $145,000 and $1.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing 11% and 47% of total revenues during the three month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease in net income was primarily the result of a decrease in crude oil and natural gas sales, offset somewhat by decreases in production costs and an increase in other income.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The critical accounting policies that affect the Company’s more complex judgments and estimates are described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

 

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Except for historical financial information contained in this Form 10-Q, the statements made in this report are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”). In addition, words such as “expects,” “anticipate,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include price fluctuations in the gas market in the Appalachian Basin, actual oil and gas production, the ability to locate economically productive oil and gas prospects for development by the Company and the impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business and the global economy generally. In addition, any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which such statement is made and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
