Commenting on the company’s 2Q 2020 performance, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Andrew G. Inglis said:
“Kosmos delivered strong operational performance in the second quarter, despite a challenging backdrop for our industry. Production was in line with guidance and we are on track to deliver the cost reductions we set out earlier in the year.
“We have added an additional source of liquidity with the prepayment agreement, and total liquidity stood at over $600 million at the end of the second quarter. At current oil prices, the company has reached a free cash flow inflection point and we expect to generate positive free cash flow through the second half of the year and into 2021.
“Looking forward, we continue to make good progress in Mauritania & Senegal despite the COVID-19 mitigations, with Phase 1 of the Tortue project now around 40% complete, a 7% increase in the quarter, which supports the sell down process. We continue to mature our exploration portfolio focusing on high return, fast payback opportunities with several proven basin, infrastructure-led exploration targets and a self-funded basin-opening exploration program expected in 2021.”
