CALGARY, AB, Aug. 4, 2023 /CNW/ - Alvopetro Energy Ltd. (TSXV: ALV) (OTCQX: ALVOF) announces July 2023 sales volumes, our August 1, 2023 natural gas price redetermination, an operational update and timing for release of our Q2 2023 results and earnings call.

July 2023 Sales Volumes

July sales volumes averaged 2,018 boepd, including natural gas sales of 11.6 MMcfpd and associated natural gas liquids sales from condensate of 90 bopd, based on field estimates.

Operational Update

On July 11th we spud our 183-A3 well on our Murucututu natural gas field. The 183-A3 well is targeting shallower exploration potential in the Caruaçu Formation and the Gomo member of the Candeias Formation. We expect to finish drilling in the third quarter. We also expect to complete our recently drilled Bom Lugar well (BL-06) and have the well on production in the third quarter.

Semi-Annual Natural Gas Price Redetermination

Effective August 1, 2023, our natural gas price under our long-term gas sales agreement ("GSA") with Bahiagás has been adjusted to BRL1.99/m3 or $13.25/Mcf (based on our average heat content to date, the July 31, 2023 BRL/USD foreign exchange rate of 4.74 and enhanced sales tax credits applicable in 2023). The contracted price is based on the adjusted ceiling price of $10.52/MMBtu which increased 3% from the February 1, 2023 price due to US inflation adjustments. With the appreciation in the BRL relative to the USD over the first half of 2023 compared to the second half of 2022, the BRL contracted price decreased slightly from BRL2.00/m3 as of February 1, 2023 to BRL 1.99/m3 as of August 1, 2023. The new contracted price will be applicable for all natural gas sales from August 1, 2023 to January 31, 2024.

BOE Disclosure
. The term barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet per barrel (6Mcf/bbl) of natural gas to barrels of oil equivalence is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. All boe conversions in this news release are derived from converting gas to oil in the ratio mix of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil.
