Talisman Energy 2013 Results - Announced over $2 Billion in Asset Sales, Improved Operational Efficiency and Capital Discipline

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 12, 2014) - Talisman Energy Inc. (TSX:TLM) (NYSE:TLM) reported its operating and unaudited financial results for 2013. All values are in US$ unless otherwise stated.

"We continue to build a strong foundation in our Americas and Asia-Pacific core businesses to deliver sustainable shareholder value and cash flow(1) growth," said Hal Kvisle, President and CEO. "In 2013, we set four priorities and built significant momentum behind each one. We reduced capital spending(1) by 20%, improved our operating efficiency and reduced costs, including an underlying 20% year-on-year reduction in net G&A. In addition, we announced over $2 billion in assets sales in 2013.

"In our Americas and Asia-Pacific businesses, we grew higher margin production and cash flow. Overall, we produced 373,000 boe/d and generated $2.2 billion of cash flow in 2013, including $580 million in the fourth quarter, building momentum throughout the year. In 2014, we will continue to focus on creating value in our two core areas by directing capital towards our highest quality opportunities and improving margins through better execution."

Year-end and Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • Fourth quarter production was 387,000 boe/d, up from 371,000 boe/d in the third quarter.
  • In 2013, production averaged 373,000 boe/d and cash flow was approximately $2.2 billion, growing by 12% from the first to fourth quarters. Fourth quarter cash flow was $580 million, up from $573 million in the third quarter.
  • Capital spending was $3.2 billion in 2013, down 20% from 2012. Fourth quarter capital spending was $744 million, down from $849 million in the third quarter.

Progress Against Priorities

Living within our means

Talisman reduced capital spending in 2013 by 20% to $3.2 billion, compared to $4 billion in 2012, reflecting a concentrated effort to reduce high risk, low return expenditures resulting in a 25% reduction in exploration spending. Talisman remains committed to capital discipline and will continue to focus on the Americas and Asia-Pacific. The company has ongoing material legacy capital obligations in non-core assets such as the North Sea until the company is able to dilute or exit its interests in those assets.

Focusing our capital program

In 2013, the company focused its capital program on oil and liquids opportunities that generate higher, more predictable returns, delivering 6% liquids production growth from the first quarter to the fourth quarter. Fourth quarter production was 387,000 boe/d, up from 371,000 boe/d in the third quarter. The company produced 358,000 boe/d in its Americas and Asia-Pacific core areas in the fourth quarter. In 2013, the company exited Poland, received government approval to transfer its interests in Sierra Leone and is in the process of exiting Peru.

Improving operational efficiency and reducing costs

Talisman continued to improve operational efficiency. In North America, year-over-year drilling and completion costs were down 16% in the Eagle Ford, 13% in the Duvernay and 9% in the Marcellus. Drilling cycle times were down 17% in the Montney and 25% in both the Eagle Ford and Marcellus. In Vietnam, Talisman achieved first oil production at its HST/HSD project ahead of schedule and under budget. The company made staffing reductions in its corporate centre and North American operations, resulting in an underlying 20% reduction (excluding certain one-off costs) in net G&A.

Unlocking value from our portfolio(2)

Talisman announced over $2 billion in asset sales in 2013 including the sale of 75% of its Montney assets in Canada for C$1.5 billion, and its equity interest in the Ocensa pipeline in Colombia for $595 million. In the fourth quarter, Talisman also entered into an agreement to sell its Southeast Sumatra asset in Indonesia. Following year-end 2013, the company entered into an agreement to sell its sour gas Foothills Monkman asset.

Steady cash flow growth throughout 2013

Cash flow for the fourth quarter was $580 million, compared to $573 million in the previous quarter, due to increased gas production at PM-3 in Malaysia, successful Marcellus gas development, increased HST/HSD oil production volumes, increased production and higher realized gas prices in Greater Edson and lower cash taxes. This was partially offset by lower netbacks resulting from lower sales into the premium Singapore market and the widening of Western Canada Select differentials in Canada, as well as unexpected operational issues in the UK that resulted in the Piper and Claymore facilities being shut in for most of the quarter, incurring higher operating costs to address the issues. Cash flow for 2013 was $2.2 billion. Talisman delivered quarterly cash flow growth during the course of 2013 as the company focused on increasing liquids volumes production in the Americas and Asia-Pacific, reducing G&A spending and benefiting from lower cash taxes.

In the fourth quarter, the company recorded a loss from operations (which exclude non-operational items) of $116 million, compared to a loss of $45 million in the third quarter. Higher liquids volumes in North America, Norway and Vietnam, higher gas volumes from Marcellus and Malaysia, lower hedging settlements, lower current taxes and lower exploration expense were more than offset by lower netbacks in Southeast Asia and Canada and lower volumes from the UK.

(3) The terms "cash flow per share", "earnings (loss) from operations" and "earnings (loss) from operations per share" are non-GAAP measures. Please see advisories and reconciliations elsewhere in this news release.

The company recorded a net loss of approximately $1.2 billion in 2013 compared to net income of $132 million in 2012. This was due to lower production from the North Sea primarily as a result of the sale of 49% of Talisman's UK business, higher royalties and lower capitalized interest costs, partially offset by lower impairments, higher liquids production in the Eagle Ford and Vietnam, lower operating expenses, lower G&A spending, lower DD&A expense and lower dry hole expense. In addition, 2012 net income reflected a non-taxable gain of $860 million made on the sale of 49% of Talisman's UK business for $1.5 billion and a $365 million gain on the revaluation of the Ocensa pipeline. The company recorded a net loss of approximately $1 billion in the fourth quarter, compared to a loss of $54 million in the third quarter, primarily due to impairments.

DD&A expense in 2013 was $1.9 billion, compared to $2.4 billion in 2012, due primarily to the application of equity accounting to the TSEUK joint venture from December 17, 2012 onward and lower production in Canada, the Marcellus and Kitan. This was partially offset by higher production and unit rates in the Eagle Ford and new production at HST/HSD in Vietnam and Kinabalu in Malaysia. DD&A was $555 million in the fourth quarter, up from $482 million in the third quarter, primarily due to increased production in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Norway.

Asset and goodwill impairments, including the company's share of joint venture results, were $1.6 billion pre-tax ($826 million after tax) in the fourth quarter. The company recorded a $651 million pre-tax ($277 million after tax) impairment in the TSEUK joint venture as a result of negative reserves revisions influenced by poor reservoir and asset performance, increased decommissioning cost estimates, and higher development and operating cost estimates.

The company recorded a net impairment expense of $358 million pre-tax ($79 million post-tax) in Norway. The impairments are a result of increased decommissioning costs on Gyda and Rev and negative reserves revisions at Varg.

The company recorded a non-taxable impairment of $185 million related to North Sea goodwill as a result of its view of the reduced value of the UK and Norway assets.

During 2013, the company recorded an impairment expense of $332 million pre-tax ($252 million post-tax) in North America. The majority of this impairment was recorded in conventional dry gas properties in Canada as a result of the company lowering its long-term gas price assumptions by 25% over last year as well as increased cost assumptions in certain conventional gas assets.

The company recorded $55 million pre-tax ($27 million post-tax) impairments in Kitan following negative reserves revisions driven by poor well performance.

Current taxes were $166 million in the fourth quarter and $623 million for the year, down from the third quarter and 2012 due to lower revenues in the North Sea and the sale of a 49% equity interest in Talisman's UK business in 2012.

The company's deferred tax recovery in 2013 was $770 million compared to a deferred tax recovery of $1.2 billion in 2012. This was principally due to lower impairments in the North Sea and the sale of Talisman's equity investment in the Ocensa pipeline.

Capital spending for the year was $3.2 billion, down 20% from 2012, reflecting the company's efforts to live within its means and shift capital towards oil and liquids opportunities. Exploration and development spending in the fourth quarter was $744 million, down from $849 million in the third quarter.

Net debt(4) at year-end was approximately $4.8 billion compared to approximately $3.7 billion at year-end 2012. The company will use proceeds from announced dispositions to continue to pay down debt.

(4)The term "net debt" is a non-GAAP measure. Please see advisories and reconciliations elsewhere in this release.

Pricing

In 2013, Brent and WTI prices were largely flat compared to 2012; however, NYMEX natural gas prices were up 31% over the previous year. On a quarterly basis, Brent prices stayed flat over the previous quarter and WTI prices decreased 8% from the third quarter. NYMEX natural gas prices were flat from last quarter. Western Canada Select differentials widened between the third and fourth quarters of 2013, resulting in a marked reduction in North American liquids netbacks in the quarter.

Netbacks

In 2013, the company's average gross netback was $24.93/boe, down from $29.13/boe in 2012 due to lower realized prices, higher royalties and transportation costs, partially offset by lower operating costs. Talisman's gross oil and liquids netback was $38.96/boe, down 25% from 2012 due to decreased realized prices compared to 2012, higher royalties and transportation costs, partially offset by lower operating costs. Talisman's gross natural gas netback was $2.88/mcf in 2013, up from $2.52/mcf in 2012 due to higher realized prices partially offset by higher royalties and operating costs. The company's fourth quarter gross netback was $23.93/boe compared to $25.98/boe in the third quarter.

In North America, the company's 2013 average gross netback was $14.83/boe, up from $10.87/boe in 2012, due primarily to growing liquids production in the Eagle Ford and higher North American gas prices. The company's fourth quarter gross netback in North America was $15.48/boe, down from $16.07/boe in the third quarter.

In Southeast Asia, the company's 2013 netback was $33.51/boe, down from $36.58/boe in 2012 due in part to a change in production mix following the startup of production at HST/HSD, offset by higher royalties at PM-3 in Malaysia and higher operating cost per barrel at Kitan in Australia. The company's fourth quarter gross netback in Southeast Asia was $35.30/boe, up from $34.20/boe in the third quarter.

Production

3 Includes Northwest Java (sold in May 2013) and Southeast Sumatra (sales agreement reached in December 2013).

In 2013, production was 373,000 boe/d. Fourth quarter production was 387,000 boe/d, up from 371,000 boe/d in the third quarter due in part to increased development activity in the Marcellus, completion of planned maintenance at PM-3 in Malaysia and completion of project tie-in work at Corridor in Indonesia. These increases were partially offset by planned and unplanned outages in the North Sea. Total oil and liquids production was 137,000 bbls/d in the fourth quarter compared to 134,000 bbls/d in the third quarter. Dispositions agreed in 2013 and early 2014 reduce annual production from ongoing operations to 345,000 boe/d.

Replaced 110% of production on proved (1P) basis

In 2013, the company recorded positive additions and revisions of approximately 166 million boe of 1P reserves and approximately 144 million boe proved plus probable (2P) reserves in its Americas core area against production of approximately 73 million boe. The reserve additions are primarily a result of successful development programs and improving well performance. In its Americas and Asia-Pacific core areas, the company replaced over 110% of production with 2P reserves increases on a company gross share basis.

The company recorded negative additions and revisions of approximately 21 million boe of 1P reserves in 2013 associated with the company's non-core North Sea (UK and Norway) business. A key factor in these negative reserve changes was Talisman's decision to limit capital investments in non-core regions.

At year-end 2013, Talisman's 1P reserves totaled 1.1 billion boe, which equates to a reserve life index of 8.1 years. Talisman's 2P reserves totaled 1.6 billion boe at year-end 2013, down 4% primarily due to production and revisions. The company's 1P reserves replacement ratio was 110%.

Acquisitions and divestures increased 1P reserves by 3.5 million boe and 2P reserves by 8.4 million boe and are included in the totals above, but not in the table below.

Talisman will release complete year-end reserves disclosure as part of its Annual Information Form on March 3, 2014.

All of the reserves estimates in this document are provided in accordance with National Instrument 51-101 (Canadian regulations), which utilize forecast pricing and costs. The company also estimates proved reserves in accordance with US disclosure standards, utilizing historic 12-month average pricing. The difference between the results of the two methods is less than 1%, or approximately 10 million boe.

In North America, production in the fourth quarter averaged 195,000 boe/d, up 6% from the previous quarter due to increased production in the Eagle Ford, gas development activity in the Marcellus and increased liquids production via a third party deep cut processing plant in Wild River, partially offset by natural declines. Full-year North American production from ongoing operations averaged 159,000 boe/d, with liquids production of 35,000 bbls/d.

In the Eagle Ford, production was 32,000 boe/d in the fourth quarter, up 68% over the same period last year. Liquids volumes were up 82% to 20,000 boe/d in the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year. In 2013, Talisman brought onstream 121 gross operated wells compared to 66 in 2012, as activity shifted from drilling single land retention wells to higher value acreage and pad drilling. The company continues to make improvements to cost and operational efficiency, reducing average drilling and completion costs to $8.5 million per well, down 16% from the previous year.

In the Marcellus, production increased by 7% in the fourth quarter to 475 mmcf/d, as a result of increased capital spending mid-year to complete and tie-in 23 additional wells from the company's inventory of 70 drilled but uncompleted wells. Drilling cycle times were reduced by 25% versus the previous year to an average of 13 days, and drilling costs were reduced by 9%. Optimization of compression costs and the short-term sale of excess transportation capacity lowered operating costs by $40 million for the year. The company also drilled six wells of a seven-well program in the Friendsville area, with the seventh well to be drilled in early 2014.

In the Greater Edson area, the third party deep cut processing plant at Wild River came onstream in late October. Natural gas liquids volumes were approximately 5,000 bbls/d net to Talisman (approximately 70% ethane), once the plant reached full operating efficiency in mid-November. In the Wilrich play, three wells were brought onstream during the quarter, with 30-day average sales rates ranging from 5.6 to 5.9 mmcf/d with 170 to 525 bbls/d of liquids.

In the Duvernay, Talisman has drilled eight appraisal wells to date and continues to evaluate its extensive acreage position. The two most recent wells drilled had seven-day average rates of 2.2 mmcf/d of gas and 550 bbls/d of condensate.

As part of its commitment to realize value from its portfolio, during the fourth quarter Talisman announced it had reached an agreement to sell 75% of its Montney acreage in northeast British Columbia for a total cash consideration of C$1.5 billion. The transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of 2014 following receipt of regulatory approvals. Also, following year-end 2013, the company entered into an agreement to sell its sour gas Foothills Monkman asset.

Building liquids momentum in Blocks CP0-9 and CPE-6 in Colombia

In Colombia, production increased slightly quarter-over-quarter to 18,000 boe/d. In mid-December, the company produced a record 20,000 boe/d net.

In Block CPO-9, Talisman and its partner successfully completed drilling the ninth and final well of the current appraisal program in the Akacías field. As of the first week of February, six wells have been put on long-term test including Akacais-1, producing approximately 8,000 bbls/d (gross) of 8 degree API oil. Based on these results, the company is moving forward with field development planning. Talisman expects to begin long-term testing operations on the four remaining wells, which are expected to be onstream in the first half of 2014.

In Block CPE-6, Talisman and its partner secured the necessary environmental permits in November to begin drilling operations. Two vertical wells are on long-term test and have proven the presence of movable oil. An additional two vertical wells, one horizontal well and one water injector have been drilled with results pending. Appraisal drilling and testing will continue into the second quarter of 2014.

Talisman completed the sale of its 12% equity stake in the Ocensa pipeline during the quarter for $595 million. The company has retained its full rights to shipping capacity on the pipeline and continues to build a strong revenue-generating marketing business in Colombia, loading its first vessel for export in December. The company retained its ability to market unused capacity, which can be contracted out at a premium to other shippers.

Production in Southeast Asia averaged 134,000 boe/d in the fourth quarter, up 7% over both the prior quarter and the same period last year. Completion of project tie-in work at Corridor in Indonesia and higher production in Vietnam was offset by the impact of temporary fluctuations in gas demand at Corridor and PM-3 in Malaysia. For the year, production was up slightly from 2012 on additional volumes from Vietnam and Malaysia, and the completion of tie-in work at Corridor.

In Malaysia, production averaged 38,000 boe/d in 2013, up slightly from 2012 with the addition of volumes from Kinabalu partly offset by slightly lower volumes at PM-3. Production for the quarter averaged 37,000 boe/d, up 9% over the previous quarter following the completion of planned maintenance. This was partially offset by well tie-in work and process interruptions at Kinabalu. The company successfully drilled and tied-in the first well of a multi-well infill drilling program at Kinabalu. A second well was drilled in December and was completed in January. The company expects to add additional wells to the Kinabalu drilling program as technical work progresses.

In Indonesia, fourth quarter production from ongoing operations averaged 73,000 boe/d, up over the third quarter and same period last year due to completion of project tie-in work, offset by a planned shutdown and lower than expected seasonal demand near the end of the year. A sales agreement was signed in December to dispose of the Southeast Sumatra assets and is pending government approval.

In Vietnam, fourth quarter production averaged 17,000 boe/d, up 21% from the previous quarter. For the year, production averaged 10,000 boe/d, up significantly over 2012 due to production from HST/HSD following the successful startup of the project in May, ahead of schedule and under budget. On Block 07/03, the company successfully completed the CRD-3X well, including a sidetrack, and is encouraged by the preliminary results. The company began drilling the 07/03-CD-1X exploration well in January 2014, the final commitment well on Block 07/03.

Algeria

Fourth quarter production averaged 12,000 boe/d, up from the previous quarter as the EMK facility commissioning progressed and production restrictions were partially lifted. Full-year production is down slightly from the previous year due to temporary production restrictions imposed by the regulator. Discussions with the regulator are ongoing and restrictions are expected to be lifted progressively through 2014.

Other Operating Areas

Talisman's share of UK production in the fourth quarter averaged 14,000 boe/d, down 33% from the previous quarter with operations affected by scheduled turnarounds and continued reliability issues resulting in higher operating costs. The Claymore platform remained shut down for the entire quarter due to unexpected repairs; production is expected to resume by the end of the first quarter 2014. A planned turnaround at the Piper platform was extended by a month, but has since returned to production. The company is working to improve operational efficiency and reliability in 2014, but the results of this work will take time.

In Norway, fourth quarter average daily production was 15,000 boe/d, 15% higher than the third quarter, primarily due to reduced downtime for maintenance. The Varg gas export project saw first gas in early February after a slight delay due to issues at the third party host platform.

Kurdistan Region of Iraq

In the Topkhana Block, the Topkhana-2 well was spud in early December and is currently ahead of schedule, with results expected early in the second quarter 2014. In the Kurdamir Block, the company plans to put the Kurdamir-2 well on a month-long extended test at the end of March.

The Company's priorities and goals disclosed in this news release are objectives only and their achievement cannot be guaranteed.

The factors or assumptions on which the forward-looking information is based include: assumptions inherent in current guidance; projected capital investment levels; the flexibility of capital spending plans and the associated sources of funding; the successful and timely implementation of capital projects; the continuation of tax, royalty and regulatory regimes; ability to obtain regulatory and partner approval; commodity price and cost assumptions; and other risks and uncertainties described in the filings made by the Company with securities regulatory authorities. The Company believes the material factors, expectations and assumptions reflected in the forward-looking information are reasonable but no assurance can be given that these factors, expectations and assumptions will prove to be correct. Forward-looking information for periods past 2014 assumes escalating commodity prices. Closing of any transactions will be subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and completion of definitive agreements.

Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking information. Forward-looking information is based on current expectations, estimates and projections that involve a number of risks which could cause actual results to vary and in some instances to differ materially from those anticipated by Talisman and described in the forward-looking information contained in this news release. The material risk factors include, but are not limited to: the risks of the oil and gas industry, such as operational risks in exploring for, developing and producing crude oil and natural gas; risks and uncertainties involving geology of oil and gas deposits; risks associated with project management, project delays and/or cost overruns; uncertainty related to securing sufficient egress and access to markets; the uncertainty of reserves and resources estimates, reserves life and underlying reservoir risk; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, including decommissioning liabilities; risks related to strategic and capital allocation decisions, including potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; fluctuations in oil and gas prices, foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates and tax or royalty rates; the outcome and effects of any future acquisitions and dispositions; health, safety, security and environmental risks, including risks related to the possibility of major accidents; environmental regulatory and compliance risks, including with respect to greenhouse gases and hydraulic fracturing; uncertainties as to the availability and cost of credit and other financing and changes in capital markets; risks in conducting foreign operations (for example, civil, political and fiscal instability and corruption); risks related to the attraction, retention and development of personnel; changes in general economic and business conditions; the possibility that government policies, regulations or laws may change or governmental approvals may be delayed or withheld; and results of the Company's risk mitigation strategies, including insurance and any hedging activities.

The foregoing list of risk factors is not exhaustive. Additional information on these and other factors which could affect the Company's operations or financial results or strategy are included in Talisman's most recent Annual Information Form. In addition, information is available in the Company's other reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking information is based on the estimates and opinions of the Company's management at the time the information is presented. The Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking information should circumstances or management's estimates or opinions change, except as required by law.

Throughout this news release, Talisman uses the term "unlocking value" to describe the realization of the value of an asset within Talisman's portfolio that, prior to its full or partial disposition, was not valued at its full market value, as reflected in Talisman's share price and enterprise value. By monetizing the asset through a disposition or joint venture, the company is able to attribute a market value to the asset that can quantifiably be reflected in Talisman's share price and enterprise value.

Unless the context indicates otherwise, references in this news release to "Talisman" or the "company" include, for reporting purposes only, the direct or indirect subsidiaries of Talisman Energy Inc. and the partnership interests held by Talisman Energy Inc. and its subsidiaries and also include Equión Energia Limited ("Equión") and Talisman Sinopec Energy UK Limited ("TSEUK") unless stated otherwise. Such use of "Talisman" or the "company" to refer to these other legal entities and partnership interests does not constitute waiver by Talisman Energy Inc. or such entities or partnerships of their separate legal status, for any purpose.

Oil and Gas Information

Reserves

National Instrument 51-101 ("NI 51-101") of the Canadian Securities Administrators imposes oil and gas disclosure standards for Canadian public companies engaged in oil and gas activities.

An exemption granted to Talisman also permits it to disclose internally evaluated reserves data. Any reserves data contained in this news release reflect Talisman's estimates of its reserves. While Talisman annually obtains an independent audit of a portion of its proved and probable reserves, no independent qualified reserves evaluator or auditor was involved in the preparation of the reserves data disclosed in this news release.

The reserve life index ("RLI") of 8.1 years for 2013 production was calculated by dividing the year-end proved reserves by 2013 production.

The reserves replacement ratio (before net acquisitions and dispositions) was calculated by dividing the sum of yearly changes (additions, discoveries, non-price revisions) to estimated proved reserves during the year by the Company's production for that year. The Company uses reserves replacement ratios as an indicator of the Company's ability to replenish annual production volumes and grow its reserves. It should be noted that a reserves replacement ratio is a statistical indicator that has limitations. As an annual measure, the ratio is limited because it typically varies widely, based on the extent and timing of new discoveries, project sanctioning and property acquisitions. Its predictive and comparative value is also limited for the same reasons. In addition, since the ratio does not include cost, value or timing of future production of new reserves, it cannot be used as a measure of created value.

Throughout this news release, Talisman makes reference to production and reserves volumes. Unless otherwise stated, such production volumes are stated on a gross basis, which means they are stated on a Company interest basis prior to the deduction of royalties and similar payments. In the US, net production volumes and reserves estimates are reported after the deduction of these amounts.

Barrel of oil equivalent (boe) throughout this news release is calculated at a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet (mcf) of natural gas for one barrel of oil (bbl). This news release also includes reference to mcf equivalents (mcfe) which are calculated at a conversion rate of one barrel of oil to 6,000 cubic feet of gas. Boe and mcfe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl and a mcfe conversion ratio of 1 bbl: 6 mcf are based on an energy equivalence conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

In this news release, all references to "core" and "non-core" assets, properties, areas and regions align with the Company's current public disclosure regarding its assets and properties.
Talisman also discloses netbacks in this news release. Netbacks per boe are calculated by deducting from the sales price associated royalties, operating and transportation costs.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Included in this news release are references to financial measures commonly used in the oil and gas industry such as cash flow, earnings (loss) from operations, capital spending and net debt. These terms are not defined by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Consequently, these are referred to as non-GAAP measures. Talisman's reported results of such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Cash flow, as commonly used in the oil and gas industry, represents net income before exploration costs, DD&A, deferred taxes and other non-cash expenses, including Talisman's share of cash flow from equity- accounted entities. Cash flow is used by the company to assess operating results between years and between peer companies using different accounting policies. Cash flow should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, cash provided by operating, investing and financing activities or net income as determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the company's performance or liquidity. Cash flow per share is cash flow divided by the average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted cash flow per share is cash flow divided by the diluted number of common shares outstanding during the period, as reported in the annual Consolidated Financial Statements that will be filed on March 3, 2014. A reconciliation of cash provided by operating activities to cash flow is provided above.

  1. Unrealized (gain) loss on financial instruments relates to the change in the period of the mark-to-market value of the company's held-for-trading financial instruments.
  2. Share-based payments relate principally to the mark-to-market value of the company's outstanding stock options and cash units at December 31. The company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of its share-based payment plans.
  3. Pennsylvania impact fee amount represents the one-time impact of the retrospective application of the legislation to wells drilled pre-2012.
  4. Gain on revaluation of investment represents the fair value adjustment recorded upon the restructuring of Talisman's investment in Oleoducto Central S.A.
  5. A court ruling in Southeast Asia indicated an additional income tax of $57 million be charged during Q2 2013. In addition, the company recorded a $16 million benefit from the resolution of a tax position in North America in Q2.
  6. During Q4 2013, the company derecognized deferred tax assets in Vietnam as a result of Block 46/02 relinquishment. During Q3 2013, the company recognized deferred tax assets in Vietnam based on startup of HST/HSD. In Q4 2012, the company derecognized deferred tax assets from US operations.
  7. Deferred tax adjustments largely comprise tax on foreign exchange on tax pools.
  8. Earnings (loss) from operations include results and adjustments from subsidiaries and Talisman's share of equity-accounted entities.

Earnings (loss) from operations are calculated by adjusting the company's net income (loss) per the financial statements for certain items of a non-operational nature, on an after-tax basis. The adjustments include items from subsidiaries and Talisman's share of equity-accounted entities. The company uses this information to evaluate performance of core operational activities on a comparable basis between periods. Earnings (loss) from operations per share are earnings (loss) from operations divided by the average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) from operations per share are earnings (loss) from operations divided by the diluted number of common shares outstanding during the period, as reported in the annual Consolidated Financial Statements that will be filed on March 3, 2014. A reconciliation of net income (loss) to earnings (loss) from operations is provided above.

Sensitivities

Talisman's financial performance is affected by factors such as changes in production volumes, commodity prices and exchange rates. The estimated annualized impact of these factors for 2014 (excluding the effect of derivative contracts) is summarized in the following table, based on a Dated Brent oil price of approximately $100/bbl, a NYMEX natural gas price of approximately $4.00/mmbtu and exchange rates of US$1=C$1 and UK£1=US$1.55.

1. Net income includes Talisman's share of net income (loss) from TSEUK and Equión, after tax.
2. Changes in cash flow provided by operating activities (GAAP) exclude TSEUK and Equión due to the application of equity accounting.
3. Changes in cash flow (Non-GAAP) include TSEUK and Equión and is included for comparative purposes only.
4. The impact of price changes excludes the effect of commodity derivatives. See specific commodity derivative terms in the "Risk Management" section of the MD&A, and note 23 to the Annual Consolidated Financial Statements that will be filed on March 3, 2014.
5. Price sensitivity on natural gas relates to North American natural gas only. The company's exposure to changes in the natural gas prices in the UK, Norway and Malaysia/Vietnam and Colombia is not material. Most of the natural gas price in Indonesia is based on the price of crude oil and, accordingly, has been included in the price sensitivity for oil except for a small portion which is sold at a fixed price.
