Tellurian reports 47% increase in natural gas production for second quarter 2022

Tellurian Inc. (Tellurian) (NYSE American: TELL) ended the second quarter with $823 million of cash on hand. During the quarter, Tellurian generated $61.3 million in revenues from natural gas sales on an increase of production of approximately 47% as compared to the previous quarter. Subsequent to the quarter end, Tellurian entered into an agreement to acquire various natural gas assets located on approximately 5,000 net acres and including 44 producing wells.

President and CEO Octávio Simões said, “Tellurian’s business model provides a unique proposition amongst U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers. By having our own natural gas production, we create cash from domestic sales that we can use for further investment, and upon completion of Driftwood LNG, we have an economic hedge for natural gas purchases which creates additional value for our shareholders and Tellurian.”

“While Tellurian continues to add natural gas production and sales revenue, we are also progressing with construction of Driftwood LNG, having cleared the site and begun an extensive pile driving program to set the foundation for the first plant,” Simões added.

Explanation and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). However, management believes a certain non-GAAP performance measure may provide financial statement users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results, the results of the Company’s peers and of prior periods.

A non-GAAP financial measure the Company may present from time to time is the Upstream segment’s Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes certain charges or expenditures. The Upstream segment’s Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of performance and should not be viewed as a substitute for any GAAP measure.

Management presents the Upstream segment’s Adjusted EBITDA because (i) it is consistent with the manner in which the Company’s position and performance are measured relative to the position and performance of its peers and (ii) it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts.
