Noble Midstream Partners Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

May 8, 2020 at 7:15 AM EDT

1Q20 Actions Position NBLX to Self Fund in 2Q20 and Beyond

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2020-- Noble Midstream Partners LP (NASDAQ: NBLX) (Noble Midstream or the Partnership) today reported first-quarter 2020 financial and operational results. The Partnership’s results are consolidated to include Noble Midstream’s 54.4% ownership of Black Diamond Gathering, LLC (Black Diamond Gathering).

Certain results are shown as “attributable to the Partnership,” which exclude the non-controlling interests in Black Diamond Gathering retained by Greenfield Midstream. Noble Midstream believes the results “attributable to the Partnership” provide the best representation of the ongoing operations from which the Partnership’s unitholders will benefit.

First-Quarter 2020 and Recent Highlights

  • Gathered 335 thousand barrels of gross oil and gas equivalent per day (MBoe/d) and 204 thousand barrels of produced water per day (MBw/d)
  • Generated $10 million of Net Income, $107 million of Adjusted Net EBITDA1 and $94 million of Distributable Cash Flow1 attributable to the Partnership
  • Closed the acquisition of Black Diamond’s 20% interest in the Saddlehorn Pipeline in the DJ Basin, increasing Noble Midstream’s exposure to high-quality, contracted cash flows
  • Commenced full service from the EPIC Crude pipeline (30% interest), connecting the Delaware Basin to Gulf Coast refining and export capacity
  • Commenced full service on the Delaware Crossing intermediate oil pipeline (50% interest), connecting the southern Delaware Basin to a growing pricing hub in Wink, Texas

“Noble Midstream extended the positive momentum from the back half of 2019 and began 2020 with strong first quarter results. We have adjusted to the current macro challenges and will continue to focus on safely executing projects and managing daily operations for all of our customers. We offer best-in-class connectivity to major market hubs, with improving operational and cost efficiencies in each part of the business.” stated Brent J. Smolik, Chief Executive Officer of the general partner of Noble Midstream.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA, DCF  and Distribution Coverage Ratio are not Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) measures. Definitions and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP reporting measures appear in Schedule 4 of the financial tables which follow.

Full-Year 2020 Updated Guidance Highlights

  • Lowered 2020 net organic capital by an incremental $65 million, totaling $140 million or more than 65% from original 2020 guidance, to a range of $60 to $80 million
  • Reduced annual operating expenses outlook by ~15% or $15 to $20 million through continued efficiencies, deferred work, and G&A cost reductions
  • Preserved approximately $200 million in cash flow in 2020 by reducing the quarterly distribution nearly 75% to $0.1875 per unit and suspending the growth rate
  • Revised the 2020 net adjusted EBITDA range to $370 to $410 million and DCF range to $280 to $310 million
  • Tightened the Equity Investment capital range to $240 million to $260 million to reflect the completion of the EPIC Crude mainline and closing of the Saddlehorn acquisition

“Noble Midstream responded quickly to the challenging market environment by reducing organic capital, deferring project expenditures and reducing our quarterly distribution. These measures minimize the cash flow impact from lower expected producer activity and enable the Partnership to reduce total debt, even in a low to no activity environment. Our portfolio benefits from strong base volumes from our gathering business and growing cash flow from our transmission segments. With the flex down of our organic capital program, and our equity-investment pipelines online, Noble Midstream is positioned to self fund, including distributions, starting this quarter.” stated Smolik.

Quarterly Financials Beat Guidance

First-quarter 2020 revenue totaled $224 million, up 17% sequentially, driven by the fourth-quarter 2019 DevCo interest acquisition as well as higher than expected volume from gathering and crude oil sales. Total operating expenses were $249 million, up sequentially from the November 2019 acquisition as well as an $110 million goodwill impairment charge. The impairment was related to the acquisition of the Saddle Butte Rockies Midstream, LLC in 2018. Field operating expenses were lower and down 20% per barrel equivalent, led by project deferrals, lower contractor labor and supply chain cost savings.

First-quarter 2020 capital expenditures of $43 million came in below the low end of guidance and were primarily comprised of well connections in the DJ and Delaware Basins. This outperformance on capital benefited from sustaining 2019 capital efficiencies, continued cost saving initiatives, and focus on optimizing projects scopes and schedule deferrals. Maintenance capital expenditures attributable to the Partnership totaled $8 million. Distributable cash flow attributable to the Partnership equaled $94 million, and with the recent distribution policy change, led to a Distribution Coverage Ratio of 5.5x.

Equity investments during first-quarter 2020 totaled $148 million, below guidance, due to EPIC capital calls moving into second quarter. This primarily included capital contributions of $30 million related to EPIC Crude, $14 million for EPIC Y-Grade and EPIC Propane, $17 million for the Delaware Crossing joint ventures and $87 million net to the Partnership for the 20% Saddlehorn acquisition.

Quarterly Gathering Volume above Guidance

In the Partnership's wholly-owned DJ Basin assets, Noble Midstream connected 41 wells in the first-quarter 2020, including 20 wells in the Mustang area, 9 connections in Wells Ranch and 12 wells in Greeley Crescent. Oil and gas gathering throughput was 160 MBoe/d and average produced water volumes were 42 MBw/d.

Black Diamond oil gathering throughput volumes averaged 92 MBo/d and oil sales volumes were 20 MBo/d. The Partnership connected 69 wells on Black Diamond's gathering system, lower sequentially due to phasing into the second quarter. Net DJ Basin capital expenditures totaled $21 million.

In the Delaware Basin, quarterly oil and gas gathering throughput was 82 MBoe/d, flat quarter-over-quarter. Produced water gathering volumes of 162 MBw/d were down 11% on a sequential basis. The Partnership connected 30 wells, including 8 third-party customer wells. Delaware Basin net capital expenditures totaled $22 million.

Pipeline JV Investments Driving Cash Flow Inflection

The Partnership’s equity investment ventures generated a slight positive EBITDA in the first-quarter 2020, impacted by the start-up of EPIC Crude and the 20% gross acquisition of the Saddlehorn pipeline. EPIC interim crude service ended in March and transitioned to the Crude mainline in April.

The Saddlehorn acquisition in the DJ Basin closed effective February 1, 2020. First-quarter 2020 volumes on the Saddlehorn pipeline averaged approximately 179 MBo/d. Volumes on the Advantage Pipeline system averaged 93 MBo/d, compared to 89 MBo/d during the fourth-quarter 2019.

Construction of the mainline on Delaware Crossing finished in March with first volumes to Wink, Texas occurring in early April. The Partnership anticipates minimal additional equity investment requirements for Delaware Crossing.

Protecting the Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2020, the Partnership had $418 million in liquidity. During the quarter, the Partnership reduced the quarterly distribution by 73% with no planned growth. As a result, on April 27, 2020, the Board of Directors of Noble Midstream’s general partner, Noble Midstream GP LLC, declared a first quarter cash distribution of $0.1875 per unit. This reduction preserves approximately $200 million in annual cash flow.

2020 Outlook Updated Based on Reduced Producer Activity and Curtailment Scenarios

Noble Midstream has updated 2020 organic capital expenditures to a range of $60 to $80 million to reflect sustainable costs savings and lower expected customer activity. Noble Midstream has tightened the range of equity investment capital to $240 to $260 million.

Noble Midstream now estimates approximately 45 Noble Energy well connections in the DJ Basin for 2020 and 28 in the Delaware Basin, all occurring by the end of April. The Partnership still anticipates more than 150 well connections in 2020 from third parties in the DJ Basin.

With the volatility in crude pricing and uncertainty around producer curtailments and duration, Noble Midstream has suspended 2020 volume guidance and will not provide second-quarter guidance. The Partnership has analyzed multiple scenarios and provided financial and operating ranges. In the upper range of guidance, Noble Midstream forecasts moderate producer curtailments for a 1-2 month period, starting in June. In the lower range, the Partnership has assumed significant curtailments, starting in June and continuing through August. In both scenarios, Noble Midstream does not anticipate material incremental completion activity until early 2021.

Noble Midstream now anticipates a 2020 net adjusted EBITDA range of $370 to $410 million and a Distributable Cash Flow range of $280 to $310 million. Due to the ongoing capital reductions and reduced distribution, the Distribution Coverage Ratio remains above 4.0x in 2020. Even with curtailments, the Partnership anticipates Net Debt to 2020 TTM EBITDA in a range of 3.9x to 4.3x, and below the 5.0x threshold in the Partnership's revolving credit facility covenant.

Noble Midstream Partners LP
Reconciliations of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release, the financial tables and other supplemental information include Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow, and Distribution Coverage Ratio, all of which are non-GAAP measures which may be used periodically by management when discussing our financial results with investors and analysts.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation and amortization, transaction expenses, unit-based compensation and certain other items that we do not view as indicative of our ongoing performance. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA reflects the adjusted earnings impact of our equity method investments by adjusting our equity earnings or losses from our equity method investments to reflect our proportionate share of the EBITDA of such equity method investments.

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, industry analysts, lenders and ratings agencies, to assess:

  • our operating performance as compared to those of other companies in the midstream energy industry, without regard to financing methods, historical cost basis or capital structure;
  • the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our partners;
  • our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We define distributable cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA plus distributions received from our equity method investments less our proportionate share of Adjusted EBITDA from such equity method investments, estimated maintenance capital expenditures and cash interest paid.

Distributable Cash Flow is used by management to evaluate our overall performance. Our partnership agreement requires us to distribute all available cash on a quarterly basis, and Distributable Cash Flow is one of the factors used by the board of directors of our general partner to help determine the amount of available cash that is available to our unitholders for a given period. We define Distribution Coverage Ratio as Distributable Cash Flow divided by total distributions declared. The Distribution Coverage Ratio is used by management to illustrate our ability to make our distributions each quarter.

We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow, and Distribution Coverage Ratio provide information useful to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio is net income. Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio should not be considered alternatives to net income or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income, and these measures may vary from those of other companies. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and Distribution Coverage Ratio as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

In addition to Net Income, the GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow is net cash provided by operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Due to the forward-looking nature of net cash provided by operating activities, management cannot reliably predict certain of the necessary components of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures, such as future impairments and future changes in working capital. Accordingly, Noble Midstream is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the aforementioned forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to net cash provided by operating activities. Amounts excluded from these non-GAAP measures in future periods could be significant.
