Crude oil, natural gas and NGL sales revenue was $5.2 million, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The revenue increase is due to both increased production and higher realized prices for our production than in the corresponding prior year period. The revenue that we reported in the third quarter of 2018 came from the sale of crude oil, natural gas and NGLs produced primarily from horizontal wells in which we participated as a non-operator and our operated Shook pad.

The Company's 2018 third quarter net loss totaled $1.4 million, or $(0.05) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $1.7 million or $(0.08) per diluted share in the year ago quarter. Operating Income was $1.3 million compared to generating an Operating Loss of $0.3 million in the corresponding prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter was $3.3 million as compared to $1.3 million in the corresponding prior year period.

Management Comment

Frederick J. Witsell, President, of PetroShare Corp., commented, "The improved results in the third quarter compared to a year ago reflect an initial contribution from our operated Shook pad and additional non-operated wells coming online. Initial flowing pressures on the Shook wells are strong and we expect further production increases in the fourth quarter from the Shook wells as mid-stream expansion projects come fully online and we optimize our production facilities allowing us to flow all wells to their full capacity. Consequently, we believe our previous guidance of 2,000-2,600 BOED for the fourth quarter remains valid. We have a total of 96 permits approved or in process. It is our understanding that all such permits would have been grandfathered, and we would have been allowed to move forward with development, even in the case that Proposition 112 had passed. Furthermore, our production facility at Shook represents a step forward in reducing truck traffic, air emissions, and surface footprint, as our facility design has the wells flowing directly into pipelines at the pad site for both our oil and gas production. We believe these attributes will be important to the further development of our asset base as we work with the counties and stakeholders where we operate. We continue to pursue strategic alternatives to address our balance sheet and capital needs, but we are encouraged by the potential for a substantial increase in our operated production and the quality of the undeveloped assets we control."

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net (loss) adjusted to exclude the impact of the items set forth in the table below. We exclude those items because they can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, and the method by which the assets were acquired. We believe that adjusted EBITDA is widely used in our industry as a measure of operating performance and may also be used by investors to measure our ability to meet debt covenant requirements. The following table presents a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net (loss), its nearest GAAP measures.
