FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE MKT: FPP) today announced financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.
Ray Reaves, President and CEO of FieldPoint stated, “The most significant event for FieldPoint in 2011 was certainly the completion of our first well in the Lusk Field of Lea County, New Mexico. This well came on line in late December and consequently contributed very little to last year’s earnings. However, the well is expected to contribute significantly to our long-term goal of increasing both reserves and production, and we anticipate that it will have a very positive impact on 2012.”
Revenues for 2011 increased slightly over the prior year, as a result of increased oil pricing. Net income at year end appeared to be significantly higher than in 2010, however subsequent to year end a non-cash charge resulting directly from the impairment of certain oil and gas properties reduced net income by over $500,000. As a result, earnings also fell short of the 2010 mark.
2011 Financial Highlights Compared to 2010
Mr. Reaves continued, “While this unexpected impairment charge dampened our excitement over the Company’s performance last year, it did not change the fact that 2011 was probably the most important year in our history. We feel that our first major drilling project in the Lusk Field was successful and we expect the drilling of our second well on that property to begin by mid-year. Additionally, we continue to explore other acquisition and development opportunities that have potential for increasing reserves and production. I want to thank all of our shareholders for your continued support, and to express to you, once again, our commitment to focus on building shareholder value.”
