*  figures have been restated to reflect the revisions for operator revenue, cost of sales and administrative expenses. Operator revenue of $641k has been reclassified as reductions in operator expenses included in cost of sales for the six months to 30 June 2017. This represents operator expenses recharged to and recovered from holders of working interests.

Commenting on the Results, CEO Rusty Hutson said:

“We would define the first half of 2018 as a period of transformative growth resulting in a material step-change for our operational and financial profile.  We continued to deliver on our growth strategy and capitalised on compelling, per-share accretive acquisition opportunities in the Appalachian Basin to grow our production by more than 90% since year end, and we accomplished this growth without risking the balance sheet. Instead, our financial strength has been improved with the addition of our low cost credit facility and a leverage profile of less than two times adjusted EBITDA.  The real impact of these game-changing acquisitions will be achieved in the second half of the year and beyond, as we realise the benefits of scale in the form of materially increased cash flow, lower costs and enhanced EBITDA margins, all of which underpin the reliable and peer-leading quarterly dividend.  Our near-term focus will remain on extracting maximum value from our enlarged portfolio by leveraging operating synergies to drive both top line growth and further cost reductions that collectively elevate our already compelling margins.  Our operating environment is increasingly positive, and we continue to screen a robust pipeline of growth opportunities from our position as the consolidator of choice in the Appalachian Basin.”
