CorEnergy Announces Second Quarter 2023 Results
KANSAS CITY, MO - August 14, 2023 - CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CORR, CORRPrA) ("CorEnergy" or the "Company") today announced financial results for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2023.
Second Quarter 2023 and Recent Highlights
Reported Total Revenue of $35.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023.
Generated Net Loss of $3.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) of $5.8 million.
Transported an average of 156,078 barrels per day.
Entered into agreement to sell MoGas and Omega Pipeline Systems for $175.0 million in cash, now anticipated to close around the end of the calendar year, pending Federal Trade Commission review and subject to customary closing conditions.
Filed additional proposed cost-of-service based tariff increases as a result of volume shortfalls:
In February 2023, a 36% tariff increase on Crimson's SPB system and began collection of a 10% increase in March 2023.
In March 2023, a 107% increase on Crimson’s KLM system, in addition to the 10% tariff increase filed Q3 2022 that is currently being collected.
In July 2023, a 10% increase on Crimson's Southern California system in addition to the 10% tariff increase filed Q3 2022 that is currently being collected.
Amended the Company's credit facility to revise the covenant requirements for Q3 and Q4 2023, providing additional time to manage near-term debt maturities through the proposed sale of CorEnergy's MoGas and Omega Pipeline Systems.
Updated the Company's 2023 outlook to reflect changes in volume, maintenance capital and timing of the Company's anticipated MoGas and Omega sale, expecting Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 to $26.0 million.
Management Commentary
"California volumes have held below our 2023 budget expectations while maintenance capital requirements are anticipated to be higher than budgeted. In response, we continue to implement our previously announced mitigation efforts, such as cost reductions, tariff rate increases, asset sales and debt reduction plans. We believe these actions will pave the way to better operating results for the Company upon approval of our pending tariff filings," said Dave Schulte, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We could also receive a volume benefit upon the recently confirmed conversion of the P66 refinery to renewable diesel early next year, but we do not yet have visibility on the potential demand by other refineries for the estimated 50,000 barrels per day currently shipped on their pipeline to the Rodeo refinery. However, capturing even a small percentage of those volumes is significant for us. For example, if we capture just 5,000 barrels per day, or just 10% of the available volumes, that represents an approximately $3.8 million increase in annual revenue and approximately $3.0 million in annual EBITDA. The proposed $175 million

sale of our MoGas and Omega systems to Spire is now expected to close around the end of the calendar year in order to provide additional information requested by the Federal Trade Commission."

Crimson Rate Increases
During the third quarter of 2022, Crimson filed for a tariff increase of 35% on its Southern California pipeline system and 10% on its KLM pipeline. Both of the third quarter tariff filings were protested by shippers and are proceeding through the CPUC approval process, with resolution expected in 2024. The Company commenced collecting a 10% tariff increase on both systems 30 days after the respective third quarter filings.
During the first quarter of 2023, Crimson filed for a 36% rate increase on its SPB pipeline and 107% increase on its KLM pipeline, additive to the 10% increase filed in 2022, based on the regulated cost-of-service tariff structure. Both tariff filings were protested by shippers and will proceed through the CPUC approval process. The Company commenced collecting a 10% tariff increase on the SPB system in March 2023.

On July 1, 2023, Crimson submitted an application to the CPUC to increase tariffs on the Southern California pipeline by 10%, resulting in a cumulative 21% tariff increase since the original tariff filing. In accordance with CPUC rules, Crimson increased tariffs by 10% on the Southern California pipeline on August 1, 2023.

The Company plans to file and begin collecting an additional 10% increase on its KLM and SPB systems on the anniversary dates of their initial filings until the matters are resolved. CorEnergy believes Crimson's cost-of-service justifies all requested increases. Any tariff increase is subject to refund if the CPUC determines that it was not justified.

Exhibit 99.1
Business Development Activities
CorEnergy continues to seek emerging carbon capture and sequestration business opportunities in California that could take advantage of the critical linkages represented by its Crimson systems and rights-of-way, as well as other ways to deploy its asset base in support of California's emerging new energy economy. As part of this effort, the company has funded approximately $1 million of development cost supporting the Lone Cypress Hydrogen Project, a proposed blue hydrogen plant at CRC's Net Zero Industrial Park at Elk Hills Field in Kern County. The plant is expected to produce 60 tons per day of blue hydrogen. The project aims to be California’s first blue hydrogen facility. CorEnergy expects to create a long-term relationship with Lone Cypress and receive the right to co-invest in the project along side California Resources Carbon TerraVault JV Holdco, LLC.
2023 Outlook
CorEnergy revised its outlook for 2023, now calling for:
Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 to $26.0 million, inclusive of maintenance expense of $9.0 to $10.0 million, reflecting reduced volumes and delays in tariff processes (see Note 2 for additional details);

Capital expenditures in the range of $11.5 to $12.5 million, incurred at periodic times throughout the year based on project timing.
An expectation that the Company’s Class B Common Stock will mandatorily convert to Common Stock at a ratio of 0.68:1, as opposed to 1:1, during Q1 2024.
Dividend and Distribution Status
CorEnergy's Board of Directors maintained the suspension of dividend payments on its 7.375% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and the Company’s Common Stock due to lower operating outlook. The Company's Board will continue to evaluate dividends on a quarterly basis.
CorEnergy’s 7.375% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock will accrue dividends during any period in which dividends are not paid. Any accrued Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred dividends must be paid prior to the Company resuming common dividend payments.
Based on the suspension of dividend payments to CorEnergy’s public equity holders, the Crimson Class A-1, Class A-2, and Class A-3 Units and CorEnergy’s Class B Common Stock will not receive dividends. The Crimson Class A-1 Units will accumulate a preferred distribution based on the CorEnergy Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares, which would be paid prior to the Company resuming common dividend payments.
The unpaid and accumulated preferred dividend amounts are included in the financial statements and notes.

You can identify forward-looking statements by use of words such as "will," "may," "should," "could," "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "estimates," "intends," "projects," "goals," "objectives," "targets," "predicts," "plans," "seeks," or similar expressions or other comparable terms or discussions of strategy, plans or intentions. Although CorEnergy believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, they do involve assumptions, risks and uncertainties, and these expectations may prove to be incorrect. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of factors, including, among others, changes in economic and business conditions; a decline in oil production levels; competitive and regulatory pressures; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of requested tariff increases; risks related to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to Crimson; compliance with environmental, safety and other laws; our continued ability to access debt and equity markets and comply with existing debt covenants; failure to complete pending asset sales on our expected timeline or at all; risks associated with climate change; risks associated with changes in tax laws and our ability to continue to qualify as a REIT; and other factors discussed in CorEnergy’s reports that are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Exhibit 99.1

1 Management uses Adjusted Net Loss as a measure of profitability and CAD as a measure of long-term sustainable performance. Adjusted Net Loss and CAD are non-GAAP measures. Adjusted Net Loss represents net loss adjusted for transaction costs, restructuring costs, less gain on sale of equipment. CAD represents Adjusted Net Loss adjusted for depreciation and amortization, amortization of debt issuance costs, stock-based compensation, and deferred tax benefit less transaction costs, restructuring costs, maintenance capital expenditures, preferred dividend requirements, and mandatory debt amortization.
2 Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss adjusted for items such as transaction costs, restructuring costs, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, income tax benefit, net, and interest expense less gain on the sale of equipment. Future period non-GAAP guidance includes adjustments for special items not indicative of our core operations, which may include, without limitation, items included in the additional financial information attached to this press release. Such adjustments may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments, as well as nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains or other items that may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations. The exact amounts of these adjustments are not currently determinable but may be significant. It is therefore not practicable to provide the comparable GAAP measures or reconcile this future period non-GAAP guidance to the most comparable GAAP measures. Accordingly, we are not providing such comparable GAAP measures or reconciliations in reliance on the "unreasonable efforts" exception for forward-looking non-GAAP measures set forth in SEC rules because certain financial information, the probable significance of which cannot be determined, is not available and cannot be reasonably estimated without unreasonable effort and expense.
