Ironhorse Oil & Gas   The decrease in production
The decrease in production is attributed to ongoing TransCanada (TCPL) pipeline restrictions and a planned third party gas plant turnaround that shut-in the two producing Pembina wells for a total of 20 days in September.

Quarterly funds from operations decreased 90% to $0.04 million from $0.4 million in Q2 2015 as a result of lower production and continued declining realized oil sales prices that decreased 16% to $51.80/bbl compared to the prior quarter.

Operating netbacks for Q3 2015 decreased 73% from Q2 2015 impacted by lower revenues, higher royalties and increased operating costs mainly due to blend gas associated costs for the Pembina area.

The company realized a net loss of $2.8 million for the third quarter primarily resulting from a $3.5 million impairment charge at Pembina due to continued low commodity prices as compared to the 2014 year end reserve report forecast, offset by $1 million non-cash deferred tax recovery.
