During Q3 FY14, the company reported earnings of CDN$0.10 per share, and recorded strong and consistent results from its Lindbergh pilot.

Pengrowth's average daily production for Q3 FY14 was 72,472 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) compared to 73,823 (boe/d) in the Q2 FY14. The company had expected this drop in its average daily production, and attributed it primarily to the following: the absence of a Sable Island condensate shipment in Q3 FY14, a small property disposition and natural declines. Partly offsetting this decline was the continued strength from the Cardium development program. The strong performance from the Cardium formation's wells over the past two years enabled the company to rationalize small pieces of its asset portfolio while still achieving its guidance targets.
