Gran Tierra Guides 2022 Annual Production To 30,500 – 32,500 BOE/D
Gran Tierra Energy Inc. (TSX: GTE) announced on Thursday its company guidance for 2022. The firm is expecting the average annual production for next year to be 30,500 – 32,500 boe/d.
In July 2021, the company lowered its 2021 production guidance to 27,500 – 28,500 boe/d from 28,000 – 30,000 boe/d due to the impact of the now-ended blockades in Colombia. This was further lowered to 26,500 – 27,500 boe/d when it announced its Q3 2021 financials.
After the end of another blockade in October 2021, the firm reported that its average production was back to approximately 30,500 boe/d.
The oil firm is also budgeting US$220 – US$240 million for its capital expenditures next year, earmarking 70% of it on its core assets and the remaining 30% on exploration-related activities.
The company is expecting to fully fund the capital expenses from the 2022 cash flow forecast of US$270 – US$290 million, at a base case price of US$70.00 per barrel.
At the same base case price, the 2022 guidances for EBITDA and free cash flow are US$360 – US$380 million and US$40 – US$60 million, respectively.
The firm also plans to lower its outstanding credit facility to under US$70 million by the end of 2021, and then pay the rest in full by H1 2022 using the expected free cash flow and recovery of taxes receivable next year.
