Feb 25, 2016, 16:16 ET from EOG Resources, Inc.

HOUSTON, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Exceeds Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Production Targets
  • Achieves Record Year for Improved Well Productivity and Efficiency Gains
  • Reduces Fourth Quarter Per-Unit Lease and Well Expenses by 30 Percent Versus Prior Year
  • Replaces 192 Percent of 2015 Production, Excluding Price Revisions
  • Announces Disciplined 2016 Capital Plan and Operations Strategy
  • Defines More Than 2.0 BnBoe and 10 Years of Premium Drilling Inventory

EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) (EOG) today reported a fourth quarter 2015 net loss of $284.3 million, or $0.52 per share. This compares to fourth quarter 2014 net income of $444.6 million, or $0.81 per share.  For the full year 2015, EOG reported a net loss of $4.5 billion, or $8.29 per share, compared to net income of $2.9 billion, or $5.32 per share, for the full year 2014.

Adjusted non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter 2015 was $149.5 million, or $0.27 per share, compared to adjusted non-GAAP net income of $431.9 million, or $0.79 per share, for the same prior year period.  Adjusted non-GAAP net income for the full year 2015 was $33.9 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $2.7 billion, or $4.95 per share, for the full year 2014.  Adjusted non-GAAP net income (loss) is calculated by matching realizations to settlement months and making certain other adjustments in order to exclude one-time items.  (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures.)

Significant reductions in operating expenses were more than offset by lower commodity prices, resulting in decreases to adjusted non-GAAP net income, discretionary cash flow and EBITDAX during the fourth quarter and full year 2015 compared to the same periods in 2014. (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures.)

"EOG's performance was resilient in 2015 as oil and natural gas prices declined sharply," said William R. "Bill" Thomas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "We achieved significant reductions in our finding and operating costs and substantially increased the size and the quality of our inventory, which further enhances our unique ability to create long-term shareholder value."

Operational Highlights

For the full year 2015, while exploration and development expenditures (excluding acquisitions) decreased 42 percent, U.S. crude oil and condensate production remained flat, and overall total company production decreased just 4 percent compared to 2014.  Total worldwide liquids production decreased 2 percent, and total worldwide natural gas production decreased 7 percent versus the prior year. 

EOG restrained capital expenditures in the fourth quarter 2015 in response to the lower commodity price environment.  Total exploration and development expenditures decreased 56 percent compared to the same prior year period.  EOG's U.S. crude oil and condensate production and total overall company production both decreased by 7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the same prior year period. 

EOG continued to enhance operating efficiencies and leverage prior investments in infrastructure, resulting in cost reductions across its operations.  During the fourth quarter of 2015, lease and well expenses decreased 30 percent and transportation costs decreased 8 percent compared to the same prior year period, both on a per-unit basis.  Total general and administrative expenses decreased 17 percent compared to the fourth quarter 2014.

 "EOG remained focused on returns and capital discipline in 2015," Thomas said.  "Our team raised the bar with record-setting operational achievements, technical advances and organic growth additions.  These sustainable improvements uniquely position EOG for long-term success in any commodity price environment."

2016 Capital Plan

EOG's 2016 plan is designed to maximize returns, maintain the strong balance sheet and continue to achieve record-setting cost reduction and productivity gains. 

Capital expenditures for 2016 are expected to range from $2.4 to $2.6 billion, including production facilities and gathering, processing and other expenditures, and excluding acquisitions.  EOG expects to complete approximately 270 net wells in 2016, compared to 470 net wells in 2015, with total company crude oil production expected to decline only 5 percent versus 2015.  This 45 to 50 percent year-over-year reduction to capital expenditures reflects the current commodity price environment and further demonstrates EOG's commitment to maintaining a strong balance sheet with disciplined capital spending. 

The company is shifting its focus to premium drilling and completions in 2016.  Driven by continued efficiencies, technical advancements and geoscience breakthroughs, the company has identified over 3,200 premium drilling locations capable of delivering solid rates of return at low commodity prices.  Premium drilling is a step change to EOG's long-term strategy that will enable it to expand its leadership in investment returns and well performance.  The company is now positioned to return to high investment rates of return as oil prices experience even a modest recovery. 

"EOG has now identified more than 2 billion barrels of oil equivalent (BnBoe) of estimated net resource potential and a decade of premium drilling inventory that can earn superior returns in a low commodity price environment," Thomas said.  "Breakthroughs of this magnitude are unique and will enable EOG to extend its lead as the low-cost U.S. horizontal oil producer.  We are confident our organic growth machine will continue to increase both the size and quality of our premium drilling inventory and allow EOG to enjoy a strong competitive advantage in the world oil market."

South Texas Eagle Ford

The South Texas Eagle Ford continues to showcase EOG's technological advances in lateral placement and completion design.  During 2015, the company expanded the use of precision lateral targeting and high-density completions across the Eagle Ford.  EOG's other plays benefit from these industry-leading breakthroughs by quickly adapting these new technologies to each unique environment.

During the fourth quarter of 2015, the Eagle Ford once again delivered outstanding well performance across the play.  In the eastern Eagle Ford in Karnes County, the Lightfoot Unit 5H through 8H four-well pattern had average 30-day initial production rates per well of 2,425 barrels of oil per day (Bopd), 285 barrels per day (Bpd) of natural gas liquids (NGLs) and 1.9 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) of natural gas.  In Gonzales County, the Lepori Unit 4H had 30-day initial production rates of 2,915 Bopd, 370 Bpd of NGLs and 2.4 MMcfd of natural gas.  In the western Eagle Ford in McMullen County, the Naylor Jones Unit 31-1H had 30-day initial production rates of 1,780 Bopd, 165 Bpd of NGLs and 1.1 MMcfd of natural gas. 

In 2016, EOG plans to complete approximately 150 net wells in the Eagle Ford, compared to 329 net wells completed in 2015.

Delaware Basin

2015 was an important year for EOG in the Delaware Basin where EOG increased its estimated net resource potential by 1.0 BnBoe.  With approximately 2.35 BnBoe in total estimated net resource potential, EOG possesses a premier position in the Permian's best horizontal oil basin.  EOG made significant advances in the basin in 2015 by expanding its technical understanding and improving returns by increasing well productivity and reducing costs.

In the Delaware Basin Wolfcamp, EOG completed a dozen wells in the fourth quarter 2015 with average 30-day initial production rates per well of 1,495 Bopd, 300 Bpd of NGLs and 2.5 MMcfd of natural gas.

EOG's 2016 plans for the Delaware Basin include completing approximately 75 net wells versus 74 net wells completed in 2015.

North Dakota Bakken and Rockies

EOG continues to advance its high-potential Rockies oil plays.  In 2015, EOG added 600 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBoe) to its Bakken net resource potential estimate, bringing EOG's total net resource potential estimate to approximately 1.0 BnBoe.  EOG has decades of drilling inventory in this world-class oil basin.

During 2015, EOG continued to delineate its Powder River Basin and DJ Basin oil plays.  In the fourth quarter 2015, EOG completed several wells in the Powder River Basin Turner oil play.  The Blade 202-2116H and the Flatbow 602-1621H had 30-day initial production rates of 1,300 Bopd, 120 Bpd of NGLs and 1.4 MMcfd of natural gas, and 1,280 Bopd, 145 Bpd of NGLs and 1.7 MMcfd of natural gas, respectively.

In 2016, EOG plans to complete approximately 35 net wells in these plays, compared to 48 net wells in 2015.

Reserves

At year-end, total company net proved reserves were 2,118 MMBoe, comprised of 52 percent crude oil and condensate, 18 percent NGLs and 30 percent natural gas.  Net proved reserve additions, excluding revisions due to price, replaced 192 percent of EOG's 2015 production at a finding and development cost of $11.91 per barrel of oil equivalent.  Revisions due to price reduced net proved reserves by 574 MMBoe.  Driven by declines in commodity prices, total company net proved reserves decreased 15 percent in 2015.  (For more reserves detail, including calculation of reserve replacement ratios and reserve replacement costs, please refer to the attached tables.)

For the 28th consecutive year, internal reserve estimates were within 5 percent of estimates independently prepared by DeGolyer and MacNaughton.

Hedging Activity

For the period March 1 through August 31, 2016, EOG has natural gas financial price swap contracts in place for 60,000 million British thermal units (MMBtu) per day at a weighted average price of $2.49 per MMBtu.  EOG has no crude oil financial price contracts in place.  A comprehensive summary of natural gas derivative contracts is provided in the attached tables.   

Capital Structure

At December 31, 2015, EOG's total debt outstanding was $6.7 billion with a debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 34 percent. Taking into account cash on the balance sheet of $719 million at year-end, EOG's net debt was $5.9 billion with a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 31 percent. A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures is provided in the attached tables.

Dividend

The board of directors declared a dividend of $0.1675 per share on EOG's Common Stock, payable April 29, 2016, to stockholders of record as of April 15, 2016.  The indicated annual rate is $0.67 per share.

In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events anticipated by EOG's forward-looking statements may not occur, and, if any of such events do, we may not have anticipated the timing of their occurrence or the duration and extent of their impact on our actual results.  Accordingly, you should not place any undue reliance on any of EOG's forward-looking statements. EOG's forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and EOG undertakes no obligation, other than as required by applicable law, to update or revise its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, subsequent events, anticipated or unanticipated circumstances or otherwise.

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose not only "proved" reserves (i.e., quantities of oil and gas that are estimated to be recoverable with a high degree of confidence), but also "probable" reserves (i.e., quantities of oil and gas that are as likely as not to be recovered) as well as "possible" reserves (i.e., additional quantities of oil and gas that might be recovered, but with a lower probability than probable reserves).  Statements of reserves are only estimates and may not correspond to the ultimate quantities of oil and gas recovered. Any reserve estimates provided in this press release that are not specifically designated as being estimates of proved reserves may include "potential" reserves and/or other estimated reserves not necessarily calculated in accordance with, or contemplated by, the SEC's latest reserve reporting guidelines.  Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in EOG's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, available from EOG at P.O.

Quantitative Reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) (Non-GAAP)

to Net Income (Loss) (GAAP)

(Unaudited; in thousands, except per share data)

























The following chart adjusts the three-month and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2015 and 2014 reported Net Income (Loss) (GAAP) to reflect actual net cash received from settlements of commodity derivative contracts by eliminating the unrealized mark-to-market gains from these transactions, to eliminate the net (gains) losses on asset dispositions, to eliminate the impact of the Texas margin tax rate reduction in 2015, to add back impairment charges related to certain of EOG's assets, to add back an early leasehold termination payment as the result of a legal settlement in 2015, to add back severance costs associated with EOG's North American operations in 2015 and to add back the tax expense related to the anticipated repatriation of accumulated foreign earnings in future years in 2014.  EOG believes this presentation may be useful to investors who follow the practice of some industry analysts who adjust reported company earnings to match realizations to production settlement months and make certain other adjustments to exclude non-recurring items.  EOG management uses this information for comparative purposes within the industry.

EOG RESOURCES, INC.

Quantitative Reconciliation of Total Exploration and Development Expenditures

for Drilling Only (Non-GAAP) and Total Exploration and Development Expenditures (Non-GAAP)

as Used in the Calculation of Reserve Replacement Costs ($ / BOE)

to Total Costs Incurred in Exploration and Development Activities (GAAP)

(Unaudited; in millions, except ratio information)










The following chart reconciles Total Costs Incurred in Exploration and Development Activities (GAAP) to Total Exploration and Development Expenditures for Drilling Only (Non-GAAP) and Total Exploration and Development Expenditures (Non-GAAP), as used in the calculation of Reserve Replacement Costs per Boe.  There are numerous ways that industry participants present Reserve Replacement Costs, including "Drilling Only" and "All-In", which reflect total exploration and development expenditures divided by total net proved reserve additions from extensions and discoveries only, or from all sources.  Combined with Reserve Replacement, these statistics provide management and investors with an indication of the results of the current year capital investment program.  Reserve Replacement Cost statistics are widely recognized and reported by industry participants and are used by EOG management and other third parties for comparative purposes within the industry.  Please note that the actual cost of adding reserves will vary from the reported statistics due to timing differences in reserve bookings and capital expenditures.  Accordingly, some analysts use three- or five-year averages of reported statistics, while others prefer to estimate future costs.  EOG has not included future capital costs to develop proved undeveloped reserves in exploration and development expenditures.

Direct After-Tax Rate of Return (ATROR)


The calculation of our direct after-tax rate of return (ATROR) with respect to our capital expenditure program for a particular play or well is based on the estimated proved reserves ("net" to EOG's interest) for all wells in such play or such well (as the case may be), the estimated net present value (NPV) of the future net cash flows from such reserves (for which we utilize certain assumptions regarding future commodity prices and operating costs) and our direct net costs incurred in drilling or acquiring (as the case may be) such wells or well (as the case may be).  As such, our direct ATROR with respect to our capital expenditures for a particular play or well cannot be calculated from our consolidated financial statements. 



Direct ATROR

Based on Cash Flow and Time Value of Money

  - Estimated future commodity prices and operating costs

  - Costs incurred to drill, complete and equip a well, including facilities

Excludes Indirect Capital

  - Gathering and Processing and other Midstream

  - Land, Seismic, Geological and Geophysical


Payback ~12 Months on 100% Direct ATROR Wells

First Five Years ~1/2 Estimated Ultimate Recovery Produced but ~3/4 of NPV Captured



Return on Equity / Return on Capital Employed 

Based on GAAP Accrual Accounting

Includes All Indirect Capital and Growth Capital for Infrastructure

  - Eagle Ford, Bakken, Permian Facilities

  - Gathering and Processing

Includes Legacy Gas Capital and Capital from Mature Wells
