A separate statement by Genel confirmed receipt of payment from the Kurdistan Regional Government for oil sales conducted this August.

Some US$4.7mln was paid to the Taq Taq field partners, giving Genel a net share of US$2.6mln. Tawke field partners received US$33.8mln which means that Genel received US$8.2mln.

In its financial results statement in early August, the company noted that talks continue over the recovery of some US$121mln receivable due from the Kurdistan Regional Government for past oil sales.

Genel, at that time, noted it had over US$350mln of cash at the end of August 2020, with net cash stated at US$55mln.

August’s interim results also highlighted a low-cost, robust business model. Net production in the six months ended June 30, 2020, averaged 32,100 barrels of oil per day (bopd), generated US$88.4mln of revenue and marked US$65.1mln of earnings (EBITDAX).
