2006 Capital Budget
Remington’s Board of Directors approved a capital budget of $293 million for 2006, representing a 202% increase over its initial 2005 budget of $145 million. Management expects that this level of expenditures will be within the Company’s available cash flow based on currently forecast commodity prices. Remington’s approved budget includes planned exploratory wells and known developments. The budget includes the costs associated with risked completions of new exploratory successes. The 2006 program assumes drilling 26 offshore exploratory wells and 2 onshore exploratory wells for a total investment of $146 million. Two of the 26 offshore exploratory wells are located in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Development capital of $39 million will allow for platform and pipeline installations on recent discoveries, along with development drilling on existing fields. Additionally, the Company has budgeted $73 million for anticipated development expenditures related to the 2006 exploratory program. The remaining $35 million will be used for seismic acquisitions, workovers, and lease acquisitions . This budget assumes three to four operated rigs working continuously during the year.

The Company’s South Marsh Island 116 #1 exploratory well discovered oil and gas pay in a single sand below 8,000 feet. This well has been sub sea completed and was flow tested at 7 million cubic feet of gas and 1,000 barrels of condensate per day. Forward plans are to construct the flow line and umbilical then connect the sub sea well to a nearby platform. We expect first production from this discovery to commence in the 2nd quarter 2006. Remington operates South Marsh Island 116 and owns a 60% working interest. Cimarex (NYSE: XEC) owns the remaining 40% working interest.
Drilling operations at the Company’s South Pass 87 #6 (Aquarius) well have resulted in a dry hole. This well was drilled to 22,214 feet and found no commercial quantities of hydrocarbons. The wellbore is currently being temporarily abandoned for future use for possible sidetrack opportunities on the eastern half of block 87. Information gained from this exploratory test will be beneficial to future deep potential on our adjacent blocks 86 and 89. Remington owns a 50% working interest in this Marathon Oil Company operated well (NYSE: MRO). Drilling costs incurred to date for the well are approximately $55 million. We expect take an estimated $25 million pre-tax dry hole expense for this well in the 4th quarter 2005. The remaining costs associated with the well will be incurred in the 1st quarter 2006.
Production Update
Remington’s 4th quarter 2005 production is expected to range between 48 to 52 million cubic feet of gas equivalents per day compared to an average of 81 MMCFE/D for the third quarter 2005. The Company exited 2005 producing approximately 95-100 MMCFE/D. Management expected to exit 2005 at approximately 125 MMCFE/D. However, ten (10) of the Company’s fields remain shut-in primarily due to third party pipeline infrastructure damage. Remington’s East Cameron 346 and surrounding satellite fields remain shut-in due to problems related to the gas export line owned by a third party. Based on communications in November of 2005 from the operator and owner of this line, the line was expected to be operational in December of 2005. However this line has yet to be re-commissioned and most recent communications indicate service to be restored in the mid-first quarter 2006. Production volumes that remain shut-in from these ten fields accounted for approximately 35 to 40 MMCFE/D prior to Hurricane Rita. The Company anticipates most of the company’s storm related, shut-in production to be restored by the end of the first quarter 2006.
Remington does carry business interruption insurance for most of its offshore producing assets. Because of the ongoing shut-ins the Company is experiencing, the entirety of the business interruption claim is not yet known. Rough estimates, based on the Company’s interpretation of the policy, result in an expected reimbursement from the policy for the fourth quarter 2005 of approximately $8.5 million. In addition, the Company’s business interruption policy covers its largest producing field, East Cameron 346, for a total of 365 days.
The Company anticipates the external audit of our year-end 2005 reserves to be completed in February 2006. Internal estimates of our year-end 2005 total proven reserves range between 270 to 285 billion cubic feet of gas equivalents. Based on this internal estimate, the Company expects 2006 annual production to range between 45 to 49 billion cubic feet of gas equivalents. A prolonged shut-in period at our East Cameron 346 complex beyond our previously stated mid-first quarter start-up could materially impact this production guidance. A more detailed guidance will be provided on 2006 production volumes, DD&A rates per Mcfe and cash costs per Mcfe upon final completion of the audited 2005 year-end reserves.
