  • Discoveries at the deep water Amethyst and Cardona prospects and the deep gas Tomcat prospect. 

Financial Results

Stone earned fourth quarter 2013 adjusted net income of $27.3 million, or $0.56 per share, and full year 2013 adjusted net income of $143.2 million, or $2.88 per share, before one-time pre-tax charges of $12.6 million from the state franchise tax settlement and $27.3 million for loss on early extinguishment of debt (after-tax charges were $8.1 million and $17.5 million, respectively).  After one-time charges, reported net income was $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, or $0.04 per share, and $117.6 million, or $2.36 per share, for full year 2013.  The 2013 net income is compared with 2012 net income of $149.4 million, or $3.03 per share.  The fourth quarter 2013 net income is compared with net income of $44.2 million, or $0.89 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. 

Discretionary cash flow for 2013 totaled $637.3 million, compared to $619.0 million during 2012.  Discretionary cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $142.5 million compared to $153.9 million during the fourth quarter of 2012.  Please see "Non-GAAP Financial Measure" and the accompanying financial statements for a reconciliation of discretionary cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net cash flow provided by operating activities, and a reconciliation of adjusted net income, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net income.

Chief Executive Officer David H. Welch stated, "Execution of our plan accelerated in 2013 and continues apace in 2014.  Production from the Marcellus shale nearly tripled in the fourth quarter of 2013 from two years ago to over 90 MMcfe per day, we drilled the first two Stone operated deep water wells with a successful exploration discovery at the Amethyst prospect and a development success at Cardona, and drilled another successful exploration discovery in our liquids rich deep gas Tomcat prospect.  These wells are expected to be on production within a relatively short period of time and tied back to our existing infrastructure.  We look forward to building on these accomplishments with a continuing deep water and deep gas program in the Gulf of Mexico.  We will also continue our low risk Marcellus shale drilling program and expect to augment the program with a test of the prospective Utica shale, which substantially underlies our existing acreage position in Appalachia.  We are entering 2014 with a strong cash position, an undrawn bank credit facility and financial flexibility." 

Net daily production volumes for 2013 averaged 46 thousand barrels of oil equivalent (MBoe) per day (277 million cubic feet of gas equivalent (MMcfe) per day), compared with net daily production of 42 MBoe (252 MMcfe) per day in 2012. The production mix for 2013 was 41% oil, 9% natural gas liquids (NGLs) and 50% natural gas, while the production mix for 2012 was 46% oil, 8% NGLs and 46% natural gas.  Net daily production volumes for the fourth quarter of 2013 averaged 50 MBoe (298 MMcfe) per day, which includes positive adjustments for realized royalty relief and working interest revisions which totaled 2,000 boe per day (12 MMcfe), compared with net daily production of 45 MBoe (270 MMcfe) per day in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Average daily production for the first quarter of 2014 is expected to be 43.5-45.0 MBoe (261-270 MMcfe) per day. Production for the first quarter of 2014 has been negatively impacted by weather-related downtime in Appalachia affecting approximately 15 MMcfe per day of projected volumes for January and most of February.  Additionally, during the first quarter of 2014, downtime at Main Pass 288 has lasted approximately 8 weeks due to a plugged pipeline affecting approximately 1,800 Boe per day while Ship Shoal 113 experienced unscheduled downtime for four days impacting approximately 5,000 Boe per day.  Finally, approximately 2,500 Boe per day of production was associated with properties divested in the fourth quarter of 2013 and January 2014.  Updated production guidance for the full year 2014 remains at 43-47 MBoe (258-282) with just over 50% projected as natural gas.  Please see "2014 Guidance."

Prices realized during the year ended December 31, 2013 averaged $103.73 per barrel (Bbl) of oil, $37.86 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.80 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas as compared to $106.70 per Bbl of oil, $41.70 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.17 per Mcf of natural gas realized during the year ended December 31, 2012.  Prices realized during the fourth quarter of 2013 averaged $95.14 per Bbl of oil, $42.94 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.76 per Mcf of natural gas, as compared with the fourth quarter 2012 average realized prices of $106.48 per Bbl of oil, $35.96 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.79 per Mcf of natural gas.  All unit pricing amounts include the cash settlement of effective hedging contracts.  

During the fourth quarter and full year 2013, effective hedging transactions increased the average price received for natural gas by $0.38 and $0.33 per Mcf, respectively. Realized oil prices during the fourth quarter and full year 2013 were increased due to hedging by $0.69 and $0.51 per Bbl, respectively.  Hedging transactions increased the average price received during the fourth quarter and full year 2012 for natural gas by $0.39 and $0.52 per Mcf, respectively. Realized oil prices during the fourth quarter and full year 2012 were increased due to hedging by $4.04 and $1.20 per Bbl, respectively.

Lease operating expenses incurred during 2013 totaled $201.2 million ($11.94 per Boe or $1.99 per Mcfe), compared to $215.0 million ($13.97 per Boe or $2.33 per Mcfe) during 2012.  For the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, lease operating expenses were $43.6 million ($9.55 per Boe or $1.59 per Mcfe) and $58.0 million ($14.01 per Boe or $2.33 per Mcfe), respectively.

Transportation, processing and gathering expenses during 2013 totaled $42.2 million, compared to $21.8 million during 2012.  For the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, transportation, processing and gathering expenses were $14.8 million and $5.9 million, respectively.  The increase is attributable to higher Appalachian gas and NGL volumes, which have higher fees, short term blending fees in Appalachia, and higher Gulf of Mexico pipeline fees.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A) expense on oil and gas properties totaled $346.8 million ($20.58 per Boe or $3.43 per Mcfe) during 2013, compared to $341.1 million ($22.16 per Boe or $3.69 per Mcfe) during 2012.  DD&A expense on oil and gas properties for the three months ended December 31, 2013 totaled $94.1 million ($20.60 per Boe or $3.43 per Mcfe), compared to $82.5 million ($19.94 per Boe or $3.32 per Mcfe) during the comparable period of 2012. 

Salaries, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses (excluding incentive compensation expense) totaled $59.5 million ($3.53 per Boe or $0.59 per Mcfe) during 2013, compared to $54.6 million ($3.55 per Boe or $0.59 per Mcfe) during 2012. SG&A expenses (excluding incentive compensation expense) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 totaled $16.2 million ($3.54 per Boe or $0.59 per Mcfe), compared to $14.1 million ($3.41 per Boe or $0.57 per Mcfe) during the comparable quarter of 2012.  The increase in SG&A expenses in 2013 was primarily the result of increased staffing associated with the growth in our deep water, deep gas and Marcellus shale activity.

Capital expenditures on oil and gas properties for 2013 were $695 million, which included $83.9 million in normal and hurricane abandonment expenditures.  This is compared to capital expenditures on oil and gas properties during 2012 of $582.8 million, which included $65.6 million in normal and hurricane abandonment expenditures. Capitalized salaries, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $32.5 million, and capitalized interest totaled $46.9 million for 2013. In 2012, capitalized SG&A was $25.0 million, and capitalized interest was $37.7 million.

As of February 24, 2014, we had no outstanding borrowings under our bank credit facility and cash of $299.2 million. In addition, Stone had letters of credit totaling $21.4 million, resulting in $378.6 million available for borrowing based on a borrowing base of $400 million.  The borrowing base is scheduled to be re-determined by May 2014.

Operational Update  

Mississippi Canyon 26 – Amethyst (Deep Water).  The Amethyst exploration well (100% working interest) encountered approximately 90 feet of net hydrocarbon pay in one interval which suggests a commercial discovery.  Analysis of logging, coring and fluid data confirmed the existence of natural gas, condensate and natural gas liquids in the pay zone (an estimated yield of 60-80 barrels of liquids per million cubic foot of natural gas).  The interval has been placed safely behind pipe for a future completion.  A full evaluation, including seismic and subsurface data integration, is needed before hydrocarbon quantities can be estimated and a specific development plan is sanctioned.  A single or multi-well tie-back to Stone's 100 percent owned and operated Pompano platform, located less than five miles from the discovery, is a likely development option.  

Mississippi Canyon 29 – Cardona (Deep Water).  The Cardona well encountered approximately 84 feet of net oil pay in the development portion of the well.  The company is currently running casing to protect this zone while drilling the exploration segment of the well.  The Cardona success extends the productive zone in Stone's Mississippi Canyon 29 TB-9 well to the adjacent fault block to the north.  Plans are to flow the Cardona well to the Stone owned and operated Pompano platform with first production expected in early 2015.  The company expects to complete drilling operations on the current well in March 2014.  Stone holds a 65% working interest in the project and is the operator.

Mississippi Canyon 29 – Cardona South (Deep Water).  Stone batch drilled the Cardona and Cardona South wells.  In late January 2014, the Cardona South well was drilled and cased at 4,903 feet before the rig returned to the Cardona well.  The rig will move back to the Cardona South well following completion of the Cardona drilling operations.  The Cardona South well is also targeting the same development interval as Cardona and the TB-9 well. The well is expected to reach total depth of approximately 12,470 feet in the second quarter of 2014.  Stone holds a 65% working interest in the project and is the operator.

Mississippi Canyon 211 – Mica Deep (Deep Water).  The Mica Deep exploration well targets the Miocene interval and is expected to spud in the first quarter of 2014.  Stone holds a 50% working interest in the project which is operated by ExxonMobil.  The well is expected to take three months to drill.

Amberjack Development Drilling Program.  Stone expects to secure a platform rig for its Amberjack (Mississippi Canyon 109) drill program.  It is anticipated that the rig will become available in the fourth quarter of 2014.  The program is expected to consist of four to six development wells.

Pompano Development Drilling Program.  Stone expects to secure a platform rig for its Pompano (Viosca Knoll 989) drill program.  It is anticipated that the rig will become available by mid-2015.  The program is expected to consist of three to five development wells.

Walker Ridge 89 - Goodfellow (Deep Water).  The Goodfellow exploration well targets the Lower Tertiary and is projected to spud in 2014.  Stone currently holds an approximate 12.8% working interest in the prospect, which is operated by Eni.  The well is estimated to take five months to drill. 

West Cameron 176 - Tomcat (Deep Gas).  The Tomcat exploration well (100% working interest) encountered approximately 30 feet of net hydrocarbon pay in the Camerina interval.  Based on well log analysis, combined with offset Camerina production history, we believe that the zone may produce liquids rich natural gas with approximately 60 barrels of condensate per Mcf of natural gas as well as additional natural gas liquids volumes.  Initial development plans call for a tie-back to the nearby Stone operated East Cameron 64 production platform with production estimated to commence in the second half of 2014.

Appalachian Basin - Marcellus Shale (Drilling Program Update).  Stone drilled 7 Marcellus shale wells during the fourth quarter of 2013, bringing the total for the full year 2013 to 30 wells, and also completed 30 wells in 2013.  In 2014, Stone expects to drill 28 to 32 wells and to complete 30 to 34 wells in the Marcellus shale.

Appalachian Basin – Utica Shale Test.  Stone expects to spud a Utica shale test well late in the second quarter of 2014 on its existing acreage in the Mary Field in West Virginia with the completion and testing expected later in the year. 

Appalachian Basin - Marcellus Shale (Production Update).   During the fourth quarter of 2013, Stone averaged approximately 90 MMcfe per day (63 MMcf per day of gas and 4,800 barrels per day of liquids) from Stone's Marcellus shale position.  During the fourth quarter of 2013, 10 new wells in the Mary field and 2 wells in the Heather field were brought online. Stone expects to bring an additional two wells in the Heather field online during the first quarter of 2014. 

Appalachian Basin – Upper Devonian Shale.  Stone began testing a 2,450 foot lateral Upper Devonian test well in the Mary field during the fourth quarter of 2013. Results to date have been inconclusive as additional flow, pressure and well interference data over time is needed.

Conventional Shelf (Drilling Program).  Production from the Taildancer discovery at Ship Shoal 113 was initiated in the fourth quarter of 2013 at a rate of approximately 1,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.  Stone is the operator with a 100% working interest.

Conventional Shelf (Potential Non-Core Asset Sale).  Stone has closed on two separate asset sale transactions, which represented approximately 2,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the fourth quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 for a combined total of approximately $95 million.   Stone continues to market certain properties in the Conventional Shelf and Louisiana state waters.  The potential sale of the remaining properties is subject to market conditions, and there is no assurance that it will be completed, in whole or in part, or by any particular time.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, we refer to non-GAAP financial measures we call "discretionary cash flow" and "adjusted net income." Management believes discretionary cash flow is a financial indicator of our company's ability to internally fund capital expenditures and service debt.  Management also believes this non-GAAP financial measure of cash flow is useful information to investors because it is widely used by professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. Discretionary cash flow should not be considered an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or net income, as defined by GAAP.  Management believes adjusted net income is useful to investors because it is widely used by professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. Please see the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a reconciliation of discretionary cash flow to cash flow provided by operating activities and a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income.

Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release are forward-looking and are based upon Stone's current belief as to the outcome and timing of future events. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, that address activities that Stone plans, expects, believes, projects, estimates or anticipates will, should or may occur in the future, including future production of oil and gas, future capital expenditures and drilling of wells and future financial or operating results are forward-looking statements.  Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements herein include the timing and extent of changes in commodity prices for oil and gas, operating risks, liquidity risks, political and regulatory developments and legislation, including developments and legislation relating to our operations in the Gulf of Mexico and Appalachia, and other risk factors and known trends and uncertainties as described in Stone's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q as filed with the SEC. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, Stone's actual results and plans could differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements.

Estimates for Stone's future production volumes are based on assumptions of capital expenditure levels and the assumption that market demand and prices for oil and gas will continue at levels that allow for economic production of these products. The production, transportation and marketing of oil and gas are subject to disruption due to transportation and processing availability, mechanical failure, human error, hurricanes and numerous other factors.  Stone's estimates are based on certain other assumptions, such as well performance, which may vary significantly from those assumed. Delays experienced in well permitting could affect the timing of drilling and production. Lease operating expenses, which include major maintenance costs, vary in response to changes in prices of services and materials used in the operation of our properties and the amount of maintenance activity required.  Estimates of DD&A rates can vary according to reserve additions, capital expenditures, future development costs, and other factors. Therefore, we can give no assurance that our future production volumes, lease operating expenses or DD&A rates will be as estimated.

Stone Energy is an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana with additional offices in New Orleans, Houston and Morgantown, West Virginia. Stone is engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of properties in the Deep Water Gulf of Mexico, Appalachia, and the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast. For additional information, contact Kenneth H.
