VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Nov. 5, 2015) – DXI Energy Inc. (TSX:DXI)(NYSE MKT:DXI) (“DXI” or the “Company”), an upstream oil and gas exploration and production company operating in Colorado’s Piceance Basin and the Peace River Arch region in British Columbia, today announced its financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2015. All share and per share amounts reflect the one-for-five share consolidation that occurred on October 30, 2015.
Q3 2015 Key Financial and Operating Highlights:
- Extended the $6.5 million bridge financing from a Director and Officer ($4.5 million) and a company associated with the Director and Officer ($2.0 million) in their current form until December 31, 2015;
- Increased oil and natural gas production by 68% to 643 BOE/d from 382 BOE/d for the comparative period ended September 30, 2014;
- Reduced G&A expenses per BOE by 66% to $7.25 per BOE from $21.57 per BOE for the comparative period ended September 30, 2014; and
- Commenced production testing of seven drilled and cased Williams Fork wells and a single deep vertical Mancos/ Niobrara well at the Kokopelli Project in the Piceance Basin, Colorado. The tests extended into Q4 2015 and resulted in the deep 13600′ Mancos/ Niobrara discovery selectively flowing at over 8 mmcf/d (~1300 BOE/d) and the seven Williams Fork wells collectively flowing over 6 mmcf/d plus liquids with at least 60% of completion fluids yet to be recovered. Testing is ongoing and daily flow rates vary in accordance to line pressures and injected water recovery. IP rates to be applied for YE evaluations are expected to be reported during late Q4 2015. DXI Energy maintains a 25% WI in the Project.

- Decrease reflected lower benchmark oil and natural gas prices in Canada and the rest of the world.
- Decrease resulted from the allocation of fixed operating costs over a higher oil production volume. This was offset by the costs associated with the reactivation of one of the gas wells at Drake/Woodrush and higher contractual pipeline transportation costs associated with a new contract signed on November 1, 2014.
- Decline due to the reduction in oil and natural gas prices.
