06 Aug, 2013, 17:12 ET from EOG Resources, Inc.

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Delivers 35 Percent Year-Over-Year Total Company Crude Oil Production Growth
  • Raises 2013 Full Year Crude Oil Production Target to 35 Percent from 28 Percent
  • Increases Total Company Overall Production Growth Target to 7.5 Percent from 4 Percent
  • Announces Record South Texas Eagle Ford Oil Well
  • Extends Bakken/Three Forks Drilling Inventory and Posts Excellent North Dakota Well Results
  • Drives Down Costs in Key Areas of Operations

EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) today reported second quarter 2013 net income of $659.7 million, or $2.42 per share. This compares to second quarter 2012 net income of $395.8 million, or $1.47 per share.

Consistent with some analysts' practice of matching realizations to settlement months and making certain other adjustments in order to exclude one-time items, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the second quarter 2013 was $573.8 million, or $2.10 per share. Adjusted non-GAAP net income for the second quarter 2012 was $312.4 million, or $1.16 per share. The results for the second quarter 2013 included net gains on asset dispositions of $9.4 million, net of tax ($0.04 per share), impairments of $2.0 million, net of tax ($0.01 per share) related to the sale of certain non-core North American assets and a previously disclosed non-cash net gain of $191.5 million ($122.6 million after tax, or $0.45 per share) on the mark-to-market of financial commodity contracts. During the quarter, the net cash inflow related to financial commodity contracts was $68.9 million ($44.1 million after tax, or $0.16 per share). (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income to GAAP net income.)

EOG reported strong, sustained financial growth for the second quarter 2013. Compared to the second quarter 2012, earnings per share increased 65 percent, discretionary cash flow increased 35 percent and adjusted EBITDAX rose 34 percent. (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of non-GAAP discretionary cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP) and adjusted EBITDAX (non-GAAP) to income before interest expense and income taxes (GAAP).)

"EOG has captured premier positions in key U.S. onshore oil plays – the South Texas Eagle Ford, North Dakota Bakken and Delaware Basin, and we continue to enhance their profitability," said Mark G. Papa, Executive Chairman of the Board. "EOG's financial metrics reflect the superior quality of these assets, as well as our technical acumen in improving well completion design and our ongoing focus on reducing costs." 

Operational Highlights

EOG's U.S. crude oil and condensate production increased 37 percent both in the second quarter and the first half of 2013, compared to the same periods in 2012. Total company crude oil and condensate production increased 35 percent in the second quarter over the same prior year period. Total company liquids – crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids (NGLs) – production rose 30 percent, versus the second quarter 2012.

Based on its exceptional performance during the first half of 2013, EOG is increasing its full year crude oil and condensate production growth target to 35 percent from 28 percent. Total NGL production is expected to increase 14 percent from the previous 10 percent target, while natural gas production is projected to decline 11.5 percent during 2013. Overall, EOG is targeting 7.5 percent total company production growth in 2013. EOG also anticipates certain unit costs will be lower than originally forecast.

"We have the confidence to raise the bar on EOG's performance expectations because our outstanding assets perform better and better, quarter after quarter," said President and Chief Executive Officer William R. "Bill" Thomas. "EOG expects to achieve these higher goals within our previously stated capex estimate."

At June 30, 2013, EOG's Eagle Ford net production of approximately 173,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, continued to out-perform the rest of the industry.

Since discovering the prolific Eagle Ford, EOG has more than doubled the initial crude oil production rates from its wells in both the western and eastern parts of the play. Efficiency gains from more effective completions and reduced drilling days are resulting in excellent rates of return.

EOG recorded strong well and economic results from its western Eagle Ford acreage where more than a third of its second quarter drilling activity in the play occurred. In La Salle County, EOG's initial production rates and overall well productivity showed a marked improvement, compared to similar completions in the same area three years ago. The Keller #1H and #2H began production at rates of 1,855 and 2,050 barrels of crude oil per day (Bopd) with 75 and 50 barrels per day (Bpd) of NGLs and 430 and 300 thousand cubic feet per day (Mcfd) of natural gas, respectively. The Smart Unit #1H and #2H had initial rates of 1,495 and 2,030 Bopd with 60 and 75 Bpd of NGLs and 340 and 440 Mcfd of natural gas, respectively. The Dossett Unit #1H and #2H were completed to sales at 1,590 and 2,185 Bopd with 85 and 115 Bpd of NGLs and 490 and 655 Mcfd of natural gas, respectively. In McMullen County, the Naylor Jones B #1H started production at 1,830 Bopd with 240 Bpd of NGLs and 1.4 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) of natural gas. EOG has 100 percent working interest in these seven wells.

EOG again achieved excellent well results in Gonzales County, the northeastern area of its Eagle Ford acreage. The Burrow Unit #3H, #4H and #5H were completed to sales in May at initial production rates of 2,990, 3,030 and 7,515 Bopd with 385, 370 and 860 Bpd of NGLs and 2.2, 2.1 and 5.0 MMcfd of natural gas, respectively. After 30 days, the Burrow Unit #5H, EOG's best Eagle Ford well to date, had an average production rate of 4,265 Bopd. The Wilde Trust Unit #1H, #2H and #3H began production in early June at rates of 5,475, 6,520 and 5,525 Bopd with 880, 710 and 775 Bpd of NGLs and 5.1, 4.1 and 4.5 MMcfd of natural gas, respectively. EOG has 100 percent working interest in these six Gonzales County wells.

"With wells in our western drilling program following the same trend as those in the east, results from the EOG's Eagle Ford activity continue to outpace our expectations," Papa said.

Improved drilling efficiencies and completion technology also have enhanced well productivity in EOG's Bakken/Three Forks operations. During the second quarter, EOG's North Dakota drilling program focused on the Bakken formation. In the Bakken Core, results from 160-acre spacing between wells continue to be encouraging. In Mountrail County, two Core wells drilled on 160-acre spacing, the Parshall 25-3032H and 22-3032H, were completed to sales at 2,685 and 2,120 Bopd, respectively. EOG has 62 percent working interest in these wells. EOG has 78 percent working interest in the Van Hook 29-1113H and 30-1113H, which began production at 2,390 and 2,295 Bopd, respectively, which were also 160-acre spaced wells.

In the Antelope Extension, EOG's other North Dakota development target this year, the Bear Den 20-1708H was completed in the Bakken formation at 2,455 Bopd. EOG has 91 percent working interest in the well.

Based on the success of its current spacing programs, EOG has increased its drilling inventory in the Bakken/Three Forks from seven to 12 years.

EOG remains active in the Delaware Basin Leonard and Wolfcamp, although the plays are constrained by a lack of natural gas processing infrastructure that is being addressed. In Reeves County, Texas, EOG drilled its best Delaware Basin Wolfcamp well to date. EOG has 100 percent working interest in the Phillips State 56 #301H, which was completed to sales at 870 Bopd with 570 Bpd of NGLs and 3.7 MMcfd of natural gas.

EOG completed and brought to sales a number of highly economic wells in the Leonard formation in Lea County, New Mexico. The Diamond 31 Fed Com #2H, #3H and #4H came online at 1,780, 1,905 and 1,530 Bopd with 215, 165 and 150 Bpd of NGLs and 1,200, 910 and 835 Mcfd of natural gas, respectively. EOG has 91 percent working interest in these wells.

"We expect EOG's three high rate-of-return oil plays, the Eagle Ford, Bakken/Three Forks and Delaware Basin, to provide us with years of drilling inventory, as well as significant growth opportunities," Papa said. "These plays just get bigger and better."

Hedging Activity

In recent weeks, EOG has increased the amount of crude oil hedges in place for the remainder of 2013. For the period August 1 through December 31, 2013, EOG has crude oil financial price swap contracts in place for approximately 121,200 Bpd at a weighted average price of $98.82 per barrel, excluding unexercised options.

For the full year 2014, EOG has crude oil financial price swap contracts in place for approximately 51,000 Bpd at a weighted average price of $96.43 per barrel, excluding unexercised options.

EOG also has hedged some natural gas volumes for 2013 and 2014. For the period September 1 through October 31, 2013, EOG has natural gas financial price swap contracts in place for 200,000 million British thermal units per day (MMBtud) at a weighted average price of $4.72 per million British thermal units (MMBtu), excluding unexercised options. For the period November 1 through December 31, 2013, EOG has hedged 150,000 MMBtud at a weighted average price of $4.79 per MMBtu, excluding unexercised options. For the full year 2014, EOG has natural gas financial price swap contracts in place for 170,000 MMBtud at a weighted average price of $4.54 per MMBtu, excluding unexercised options. (For a comprehensive summary of crude oil and natural gas derivative contracts, please refer to the attached tables.)           

Capital Structure

To date, EOG has closed on approximately $580 million of asset sales, exceeding its stated goal for the year. At June 30, 2013, EOG's total debt outstanding was $6,313 million for a debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 31 percent. Taking into account cash on the balance sheet of $1,228 million at the end of the second quarter, EOG's net debt was $5,085 million for a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 26 percent. (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of net debt (non-GAAP) to current and long-term debt (GAAP) and the reconciliation of net debt-to-total capitalization ratio (non-GAAP) to debt-to-total capitalization ratio (GAAP).)

The following chart adjusts the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 reported Net Income (GAAP) to reflect actual net cash realized from financial commodity price transactions by eliminating the unrealized mark-to-market gains from these transactions, to eliminate the net gains on asset dispositions in North America in 2013 and 2012 and to add back impairment charges related to certain of EOG's North American assets in 2013 and 2012.  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.
