During Q3 FY14, Anadarko's sales volumes of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids reached a record 78 million BOE (Barrel of Oil Equivalent), or an average of 849,000 BOE per day, representing an increase of approximately 105,000 BOE per day on a divestiture-adjusted basis from Q3 FY13. The growth in higher-margin liquids sales volumes significantly improved the overall product mix to 51% liquids in Q3 FY14 versus 43% in Q3 FY13. Anadarko's strong sales volumes were primarily driven by performance in the Wattenberg field, which continued to benefit from the company's significant commitment to midstream expansions and achieved Y-o-Y sales-volume growth of 88,000 BOE per day, averaging 189,000 BOE per day for the quarter. In addition, Anadarko reported significant sales-volume growth in the Eagleford Shale, as well as the Wolfcamp Shale oil opportunity where the company expanded its high-confidence area within its 600,000-gross-acre position.
Commenting on the results, Al Walker, Chairman, President and CEO of Anadarko, stated that the company had another outstanding quarter with liquids sales-volume growth of 35% Y-o-Y on a divestiture-adjusted basis, approximately $1.2 billion of new asset monetizations and enhanced cash margins per barrel. He added that the impressive results from the company's operating activities enable it to increase its 2014 full-year sales-volume expectations for the third time this year, to a new range of 304 million BOE to 306 million BOE.
