Third quarter drilling activity in North America was higher in 2021 compared to the prior year. Canadian industry activity levels continued to recover from the historic lows of 2020 and market share gains in the United States drove a significant year over year increase in operating days despite a more muted recovery in United States drilling activity relative to Canada.  In Australia, third quarter operating days increased in 2021 compared to 2020 as two drilling rigs returned to service following the completion of recertifications and upgrades. One drilling rig was removed from service in Australia during the third quarter of 2021 to complete necessary recertifications and upgrades and is expected to return to service in the first quarter of 2022. Despite a decrease in revenue per operating day arising from year over year changes in the geographic revenue mix and mix of equipment operating, third quarter CDS segment revenue increased by 168% in 2021 compared to 2020. Negatively impacting third quarter 2021 CDS segment results was $0.5 million of non-recurring equipment reactivation costs as several idle drilling rigs were put back into service.

Third quarter revenue in the RTS segment increased as compared to the same period in 2020 due to higher equipment utilization in Canada and the United States. Canadian activity was bolstered by the commencement of several projects that were delayed during the first half of 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions unrelated to the Company’s operations or personnel. The decrease in the third quarter EBITDA margin percentage as compared to prior year same quarter was due primarily to the mix of equipment operating, equipment reactivation expenses and the receipt of less COVID-19 relief funds.

(1)  See Note 1 of the Notes to the Financial Highlights set forth at the end of this release.
(2)  Rental equipment utilization is measured on a horsepower basis.

The year over year increase in the CPS segment’s third quarter revenue was due primarily to higher fabrication sales and increased equipment overhaul activity. Compression rental fleet utilization continued to recover during the third quarter of 2021 but remained below prior year levels.  Ongoing cost management and increased overhead absorption from higher fabrication activity contributed to a year over year increase in third quarter EBITDA.  Third quarter EBITDA margin was lower on a year over year basis due to a $0.8 million provision for bad debt and an increased relative contribution of lower margin fabrication revenue to CPS segment revenue. The fabrication sales backlog continued to strengthen during the third quarter of 2021, increasing by another $38.0 million, or 66%, compared to the $57.5 million backlog at June 30, 2021.

(2)  Service hours is defined as well servicing hours of service provided to customers and includes paid rig move and standby.
(3)  The Company reports its service rig utilization for its operational service rigs in North America based on service hours of 3,650 per rig per year to reflect standard 10 hour operations per day. Utilization for the Company’s service rigs in Australia is calculated based on service hours of 8,760 per rig per year to reflect standard 24 hour operations.

WS segment revenue increased in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to 2020 due to higher production activity levels in North America and increased well abandonment activity in Canada.  The year over year decrease in EBITDA and EBITDA margin for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily due to decreased activity in Australia and increased North American operating costs that were not fully offset by price increases.

Corporate

Total Energy continued to focus on the safe and efficient operation of its business and the preservation of its balance sheet strength and financial liquidity during the third quarter of 2021. Bank debt was reduced by $7.6 million, or 4%, during the quarter. The Company also purchased 582,900 common shares during the quarter under its normal course issuer bid at an average price of $4.27 (including commissions). There were 44,000,000 common shares outstanding at September 30, 2021.

The Company exited the third quarter of 2021 with $138.4 million of positive working capital (including $25.6 million of cash) and $120 million of available credit under its $255 million of revolving bank credit facilities.  The weighted average interest rate on the Company’s outstanding debt at September 30, 2021 was 2.80%.

Outlook

Total Energy’s diversified geographic and business exposure provided a measure of stability following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020 and contributed to the generation of significant free cash flow during very difficult industry conditions. A substantial portion of the Company’s free cash flow generated since the 2020 collapse in oil prices has been directed towards debt repayment, with bank debt (net of cash) being reduced from January 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021 by $87.4 million, or 34%. Such diversity also provides Total Energy with significant leverage to recovering conventional energy industry activity levels, including increased oilfield abandonment and reclamation activity, as evidenced by the Company’s return to profitability in the third quarter of 2021.

In response to increasing demand for drilling rigs and compression rental equipment, Total Energy has increased its 2021 capital expenditure budget by $6.5 million to $33.2 million. Included in the 2021 capital budget is $6.2 million of light duty vehicle capital leases. Excluding capital leases, $17.2 million of capital expenditures have been made to September 30, 2021 and the Company intends to fund the remaining $9.8 million of budgeted 2021 capital expenditures with cash on hand.

While oil and natural gas prices remain elevated and activity levels continue to modestly improve from the historic lows of 2020, activity levels remain subdued relative to prior periods of similarly high oil and natural gas prices.  At current commodity prices, Total Energy expects that industry activity levels in all geographies will continue to increase albeit at a measured pace, due in part to the pressure on many oil and natural gas producers to curtail reinvestment. A reduction in energy service industry capacity will serve to offset muted capital expenditure programs as personnel and equipment shortages begin to materialize, particularly in Canada where industry conditions have been challenging for several years.

Given the unique and uncertain environment currently faced by the energy industry, Total Energy remains focused on the safe and efficient operation of its business, debt repayment, disciplined capital deployment and enhancing shareholder returns, including through share repurchases under its recently renewed normal course issuer bid. Total Energy also continues to pursue opportunities to leverage its technologies, expertise and equipment to pursue new business opportunities, including in the areas of alternative resource extraction and emissions reduction and sequestration.

Notes to the Financial Highlights

(1) EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and is equal to net income before income taxes plus finance costs plus depreciation. EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS. Management believes that in addition to net income, EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company’s primary business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed, amortized or how the results are taxed in various jurisdictions as well as the cash generated by the Company’s primary business activities without consideration of the timing of the monetization of non-cash working capital items. Readers should be cautioned, however, that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of Total Energy’s performance. Total Energy’s method of calculating EBITDA may differ from other organizations and, accordingly, EBITDA may not be comparable to measures used by other organizations.
(2) Working capital equals current assets minus current liabilities.
(3) Net Debt equals long-term debt plus lease liabilities plus current liabilities minus current assets.
(4) Basic and diluted shares outstanding reflect the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the periods. See note 5 to the Company’s condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

Certain statements contained in this press release, including statements which may contain words such as “could”, “should”, “expect”, “believe”, “will” and similar expressions and statements relating to matters that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements.
