Prospera Energy‘s Remarkable Turnaround

Full size

Though still flying under the radar for many investors, Prospera Energy Inc. is proving to be a rising star in the oil and gas industry. The restructured company is making waves with its strategic approach to oil production and significant achievements under the leadership team. With a current market capitalization of $38 million and 2022 year-end reserve value of $72 million, Prospera is focusing on optimizing production and expanding its portfolio which positions the company as a promising player in the Canadian oil and gas market. With a dynamic leadership team at the helm, successful optimization initiatives and a strategic development plan, the company is well-positioned for future growth. As management continues to expand operations, optimize production, and diversify the company‘s portfolio, Prospera is expected to soon become a recognized force in the Canadian oil and gas sector.

Prospera focuses on properties in Saskatchewan heavy-oil (13-17 API) and Alberta medium-light oil (24+ API) holding an estimated 400 million barrels of untapped oil with roughly 9% recovered.

Samuel David, who became CEO in 2021, has implemented a successful restructuring plan, reducing production costs from $68 to as low as $34 per barrel of oil equivalent (boe) and increasing the Net Present Value (NPV) of its properties to $72 million (from -$3.4 million prior to restructuring). The company conducted a horizontal well program, and medium-light oil development in 2023. As a result, Prospera exceeded 2023 year-end production target of 1,800 barrel of oil equivalent per day (boepd) with the capability of 2,200 boepd. 

Prospera emerges as a promising investment opportunity in the oil and gas sector, combining strategic planning, technological innovation, and a commitment to growth. With a well-funded development plan and a focus on optimizing production, the company is strategically positioned to capitalize on the increasing global demand for energy.


Full size

In a strategic move that has captured the attention of the industry, the management team at Prospera Energy Inc. has successfully executed the first phase of a comprehensive restructuring initiative, resulting in a substantial surge in production and market capitalization.

These advancements are a testament to the experienced leadership and skilled decision-making that underscore the company‘s commitment to driving shareholder value with excellence. However, this achievement marks just the initial step, with the subsequent phases of the growth plan poised to propel Prospera even further, solidifying its position as an industry innovator and setting the stage for continued success.

The restructuring efforts, led by Prospera Energy’s leadership and board of directors, reflect a diligent approach to optimizing operations and enhancing efficiency across the organization. The company‘s efforts have translated into meaningful production increases, showcasing the success of experienced management and innovative solutions implemented by the team.

In Q4 of 2023, the company bolstered their leadership team. Chris Ludtke (CPA, CMA), formerly the VP of Finance and Accounting, was appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Prospera brought on a VP of Operations, John McMahon (P.L. Eng.), who holds over 35 years of experience in engineering and operations in Western Canada. Former CFO, Matthew Kenna, remained in the organization and was appointed to Prospera’s board of directors.

Investors and stakeholders have shown confidence in the direction set by this leadership team. Collectively, the Prospera board and management team boast over 200 years of combined experience and expertise, encompassing all facets of business operations and growth planning.

Strategic 3-Phase Growth Plan


Full size

Having successfully completed the first phase, Prospera is poised for a pivotal moment, ready to advance into the next phases with a well-funded growth plan and a commitment to significantly increase production. The company aims to maintain its momentum in a positive oil price environment by converting vertical wells to horizontal infill wells. To date, Prospera has successfully drilled 9 horizontal wells (IP > 100 bpd) and completed 2 medium-light oil wells that yielded initial flowing rates of approximately >500 bpd. In 2024, the company plans to further increase production through a summer drilling program of >30 locations and the continuation of the development in medium-light oil. Prospera aims to exit 2024 with its organic development program at 3,500 boepd. Additionally, with strategic acquisitions at play the company is looking at a 2024 exit rate of 5,000 boepd.

The ongoing development program aims to achieve a substantial increase in production, supported by existing cash flow and a recent $3 million royalty agreement for the sale of a 1% royalty on Prospera‘s revenue from its Cuthbert properties. The company’s low-cost operations, coupled with a competitive royalty regime, position it favorably in the current market.

Looking ahead, Prospera plans to implement comprehensive reservoir management to optimize production and reduce decline rates. The long-term goal is to diversify its product portfolio, targeting 50% light oil, 40% heavy oil and 10% gas.

Unlocking Potential with Advanced Technologies


Full size

Prospera holds significant pools with high Original-Oil-In-Place (OOIP) and low recovery factors, presenting an opportunity for enhanced oil recovery and an overall production increase.

The company is leveraging technological innovations and enhanced recovery techniques to tap into previously stranded assets. This includes horizontal drilling and enhanced recovery methods conducive to reservoir architecture and parameters which can significantly increase recovery factors.

Prospera‘s focus on reservoirs with excellent porosity and permeability enhances predictability and lowers risks compared to unconventional shale wells. The use of proven technologies and strategic deployment of capital positions the company as a cost-effective player in the Canadian oil and gas sector.

Prospera strategically reinvests revenue generated from oil sales into further development to boost production. By leveraging cutting-edge innovations and seizing enhanced oil recovery opportunities, the company not only amplifies its growth trajectory but also augments its barrel output with remarkable capital efficiency. This approach unlocks previously untapped reserves, contributing to the company‘s Net Asset Value (NAV).

2023 was a highly successful year for the restructured Prospera Energy Inc. PEI drilled, completed and tied-in nine horizontal wells in heavy oil reservoir with initial production rates exceeding expectations at 100+bpd per well. The ninth well was rig released on December 24th and was brought online on December 28th. In addition, PEI drilled a directional well accessing medium-light oil flowing at 500+ Bpd. Gross peak rates of 1,800 boepd were attained prior to year-end, excluding the production of the recently drilled and completed horizontals, and the shut-in production for drilling. This production was brought on throughout the month resulting in a monthly average of approximately 1,300 gross boepd. Currently, the total production capability of Prospera is 2,200 boepd that will be optimized in the next few weeks barring any extreme winter weather conditions.“ (Source: Prospera‘s news-release on January 5, 2024)

Prospera was effectively able to fund the 2023 development plan with minimal dilution. The Company raised a total of $16.1 million through the issuance of multi-year promissory notes, GORR financing, private placement, and the exercise of previously issued warrants. A significant amount of these funds was raised through insider participation and strategic investment. PEI’s future development plans are substantiated and encouraged by the 2023 development drilling and production results. Therefore, in 2024, Prospera is proposing robust development and acquisition plans to attain year end production rates of 5,000 boepd. Furthermore, PEI plans to pilot and implement Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods and add to existing production levels. The strategic acquisitions are to expand the core reserve base and to diversify the product mix.“ (Source: Prospera‘s news-release on January 5, 2024)

"Funding for Prospera’s 2024 development program will be facilitated from cash flow generated from existing operations, debt, and equity financing through private placement. These successful developments translate to significant additional reserve and appreciation of PEI net present value (NPV) for the year end 2023. This production increase will translate to sustainable revenue for operations, development and remains steadfast in its commitment to eliminating the legacy arrears to landowners, regulators, and the local community anticipated by the year end 2024." (Source: Prospera‘s news-release on January 5, 2024)

Alberta produced a record amount of crude oil in November last year, with the daily average topping 4 million barrels. As the larger Trans Mountain pipeline nears completion, [...] producers in Canada’s oil province ramped up production by more than 330,000 barrels daily to a total of 4.16 million bpd, in November, Bloomberg reported, citing data from the Alberta Energy Regulator. The Trans Mountain pipeline will, after its expansion, be able to carry 590,000 bpd more in crude oil than it did before the expansion, which will raise the total capacity of the pipeline to 890,000 bpd... Alberta oil majors are already planning further production expansion in anticipation of the Trans Mountain project’s completion. Last month, Canadian Natural Resources said it eyed an output expansion of some 40,000 barrels of oil equivalent daily this year. Cenovus is also investing in production growth.“ (Source: “Alberta Posts Record Oil Production“; January 12, 2024)

Provincial governments in Canada‘s oil and gas regions are fully supportive of the growth of their hydrocarbon sectors... Canada is one of the largest oil and gas producers in the world. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) estimates 2022 production was about 4.6 million barrels per day of oil and 17 billion cubic feet per day of gas. The energy ministers of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland & Labrador [...] were unified in promoting an objective that their oil and gas sectors should grow. They were also unified in sending a clear message to the Canadian federal government that, as Saskatchewan’s Minister of Energy & Resources Jim Reiter said, “what the world needs right now is… more clean Canadian oil and gas”... He echoed comments by the Alberta Premier Danielle Smith earlier this week that the objective was the “phasing out of emissions, not oil and gas”.“ (Source: “Canadian provincial ministers want oil and gas growth to underpin the energy transition“; September 2023)

Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Risks and uncertainties include: The receipt of all necessary approvals and permits for exploration, development and production; the ability to find sufficient oil and gas for profitable production; uncertainty of future production, uncertain capital expenditures and other costs; financing and additional capital requirements for exploration, development and production may not be available at reasonable cost or at all; quantities and quality of oil and gas on the properties may not be as high as expected; past production may not be indicative of any further potential on the properties; that oil and gas encountered with drilling will be uneconomic; that the targeted prospects can not be reached; the receipt in a timely fashion of further permitting; legislative, political, social or economic developments in the jurisdictions in which Prospera carries on business may hinder progress; there may be no agreement with neighbors, partners or government on developing the respective projects or infrastructure; operating or technical difficulties or cost increases in connection with exploration, development and production activities; the ability to keep key employees and operations financed; what appear at first to be similarities with other projects may not be substantially similar; share prices and market valuations of Prospera and other companies may fall as a result of many factors, including those listed here and others listed in the companies’ and other oil and gas companies’ disclosure; and the oil and gas prices available when production is ongoing may not be sufficient to produce economically. Like every company navigating the unpredictable oil and gas sector, Prospera faces a significant risk associated with commodity pricing. Decreases in prices can lead to diminished cash flows, consequently exerting a substantial influence on the company’s share price. This vulnerability is particularly pronounced for Prospera, given its dependence on cash flow to finance its growth-oriented business plan. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. Rockstone and the author of this report do not undertake any obligation to update any statements made in this report except as required by law. As per Prospera’s interim financial statements for the 9 months ended September 30, 2023, filed on SEDAR: “The Corporation’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks arising from its financial assets and liabilities. The Corporation manages its exposure to financial risks by operating in a manner that minimizes its exposure to the extent practical. The main financial risks affecting the Corporation are: Credit Risk: The Corporation is exposed to credit risk in relation to its cash and trade and other receivables. Cash is held with highly rated Canadian banks. Therefore, the Corporation does not believe these financial instruments are subject to material credit risk. The Corporation’s trade and other receivables include amounts due from the sale of petroleum and natural gas. The Corporation’s production is sold to a variety of purchasers under normal industry sale and payment terms. Accounts receivables are from customers and joint operating partners in the Canadian petroleum and natural gas industry and are subject to normal industry specific credit risk. Liquidity Risk: The Corporation’s approach to managing liquidity risk is to ensure that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its financial liabilities when they become due. Management mitigates liquidity risk by maintaining banking and other borrowing facilities, continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows, and actively seeking equity financing to assist with projected cash outflows. As at September 30, 2023, the Corporation has a working capital deficiency of $11,916,745 and an accumulated deficit of $32,631,063. The Corporation’s ability to continue as a going concern Note 2 is continuously dependent on achieving profitable operations and accessing additional financing. Market Risk: Interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate with changes in market interest rates. The Corporation is not exposed to interest rate fluctuations at September 30, 2023 as there are no investments of excess cash in short-term money market investments and credit facilities are at fixed rates of interest. Foreign currency risk: Management believes the foreign currency risk arising from currency exchange rate fluctuations related to financial instruments held in foreign currencies is negligible as the Corporation held no foreign denominated financial instruments as at September 30, 2023. Commodity price risk: The nature of the Corporation’s operations results in exposure to commodity price fluctuations. The Corporation closely monitors commodity prices to determine the appropriate course of action to be taken. The Corporation does not hedge commodity price risk and has no physical forward price or financial derivatives sales contracts as at September 30, 2023. Capital Management: The Corporation’s policy is to maintain a strong capital base for the objectives of maintaining financial flexibility, to sustain the development of the Corporation’s current capital projects and for future development of the Corporation. The Corporation monitors its working capital and expected capital spending and raises additional equity by the issue of share capital to manage its development plans. The Corporation has no externally imposed capital requirements apart from the banking covenants on the Corporation’s credit facilities. The Corporation continues to assess additional petroleum and natural gas projects and plans to raise additional debt or equity amounts as needed to fund acquisitions and to maintain sufficient working capital to meet administrative expenditures.”
