At Tecolutla, production was shut-in temporarily at the end of March 2020 in response to declining oil prices resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
As oil prices recovered, production was brought back on stream in July 2020.
As a result of continued cost reduction initiatives undertaken during the shut-in period Tonalli has lowered it operating cost structure and is able to achieve a positive operating cashflow at lower oil prices than prior to the shut-in.
We estimate that at targeted production levels of 75 bbls/day, operating costs of approximately USD $10.67/bbl and a WTI price of USD $42.00/bbl, Tonalli is able to achieve an operating netback of approximately USD $9.22/bbl. The majority of current operating costs are fixed so if Tonalli is able to bring on additional production volumes then the per barrel operating costs are expected to be lower.
