Cash and cash equivalents had a balance of USD$14 million as of December 31st, 2020, while the credit facility balance was USD$190 million.

Ramping up Production

Q1 2021 reported the company attempting to workover wells that it had sent offline in 2020 on account of very low oil prices. GTE is making use of two workover rigs to bring them back online, with the average workover cost having gone down by 28% year-over-year. Average costs of drilling per well has gone down for its Acordionero Oil Field by a margin of 36% since 2019, with AC-75 boasting a record cycle time of 10.6 days at a cost of USD$1.9 million.

Develops in Costayaco

March 2021 saw the infill development drilling campaign commence in GTE’s Costayaco Oil Field, the first program initiated in the area since November 2019. Of the three oil producers being drilled, CYC-42 was completed in 12.1 days at a cost of USD$1.9 million, representing savings of 30% in comparison to the last four wells drilled in the region. The remaining two wells are on their way to start producing by the second quarter of 2021, with workovers on 6 producing wells having been completed in that time period.

More Efficient Drilling

Due largely to the company’s ongoing cost saving initiatives, GTE has successfully brought down costs associated with well drilling and completion capital at their Acordionero site. Compared to reports from 2019, costs of drilling were down by 18% in the first quarter of 2021 while completion capital costs were down by a massive 52%. GTW expects a similar reduction of costs by 18% at their Costayaco oil field, where drilling will commence in Q2 2021.

Future Outlook for GTE

With the restarting of production and ramping up of existing production in wells across its oil field sites, GTE has a well-balanced liquidity position that the company can leverage to facilitate further sustained growth. In conjunction with the impressive reduction in drilling costs, the company is primed for profitability, with current and potential investors confident in the company’s drive to maximize shareholder value.
