HOUSTON, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Introduces 50,000 Net Acre Woodford Oil Window Play with 210 MMBoe Estimated Net Resource Potential and 260 Net Premium Well Locations
  • Adds First Bone Spring Play in Delaware Basin with 540 MMBoe Estimated Net Resource Potential and 540 Remaining Net Premium Well Locations
  • Exceeds Revised Post-Harvey Crude Oil, NGL and Natural Gas Production Targets
  • Delivers Per-Unit Lease and Well, Transportation and DD&A Expense Rates Below Targets
  • Expects to Grow 2017 U.S. Oil Production 20 Percent Within Discretionary Cash Flow Including Dividends

EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) (EOG) today reported third quarter 2017 net income of $100.5 million, or $0.17 per share. This compares to a third quarter 2016 net loss of $190.0 million, or $0.35 per share. 

Adjusted non-GAAP net income for the third quarter 2017 was $111.3 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to an adjusted non-GAAP net loss of $220.8 million, or $0.40 per share, for the same prior year period.  Adjusted non-GAAP net income (loss) is calculated by matching commodity derivative contract realizations to settlement months and making certain other adjustments in order to exclude non-recurring items.  (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures.)

Increased crude oil volumes, higher crude oil, natural gas liquids (NGLs) and natural gas prices and lower transportation expense resulted in increases to discretionary cash flow and EBITDAX during the third quarter 2017 compared to the third quarter 2016.  In addition to the items listed above, lower impairment and depreciation, depletion and amortization expenses resulted in increased adjusted non-GAAP net income during the quarter.  (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures.)

Operational Highlights
In the third quarter 2017, EOG expanded its premium inventory to approximately 8,000 net drilling locations from 7,200.  As a result, EOG's total premium net resource potential increased 12 percent to 7.3 billion barrels of oil equivalent.  The additional net premium locations include 540 in the Delaware Basin First Bone Spring and 260 in the Woodford Oil Window.  Premium inventory is defined by well locations that generate a minimum 30 percent direct after-tax rate of return assuming a $40 crude oil price.  

EOG grew third quarter total crude oil volumes 16 percent to 327,900 barrels of oil per day (Bopd).  Production curtailments and completion delays due to Hurricane Harvey reduced crude oil volumes approximately 15,000 Bopd during the quarter.  Natural gas and NGL production exceeded target midpoints, contributing to 8 percent total company production growth compared to the third quarter 2016.  

During the third quarter 2017, lease and well expenses on a per-unit basis increased 4 percent compared to the same prior-year period, primarily because of higher per-unit operating costs from properties acquired in the Yates transaction and increased operating and maintenance expenses in the United Kingdom.  Per-unit transportation costs decreased 15 percent year-over-year, due to the expiration of legacy transportation agreements and increased infrastructure to handle higher production volumes.  Per-unit depreciation, depletion and amortization expenses decreased 13 percent compared to the same prior-year period due to the addition of reserves from premium wells with lower finding and development costs.

EOG now expects to complete approximately 505 net wells in 2017, an increase from its original outlook of 480 net wells.  The company achieved lower completed well costs across its operations in 2017, as continued efficiencies and legacy service contract expirations offset service price increases.  EOG is targeting 20 percent U.S. crude oil growth and expects to fund capital expenditures and the dividend using discretionary cash flow.

"Since the start of the year, EOG has added 2,000 net premium locations to its inventory.  This is four times the number of wells we expect to complete for all of 2017," said William R. "Bill" Thomas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "EOG is an organic, exploration-driven machine.  We have amassed an enormous, high-quality portfolio of assets by capturing sweet-spot acreage in the best oil plays in the U.S.  Combined with our consistent operational proficiency and innovative technology, this gives us great confidence in the long-term sustainability of our unique premium growth and high-return model."

Woodford Oil Window
EOG added to its growing roster of premium plays with the introduction of a 50,000 net acre position in the Woodford oil window of the Eastern Anadarko Basin.  Located primarily in McClain County, Oklahoma, EOG is targeting the black-oil window of the Woodford formation.  The contiguous acreage position was amassed through an organic leasing program conducted over the past four years at an average cost of $750 per acre.  EOG has completed three horizontal exploration wells in the play since June 2016.  The most recent well, the Curry 21X #1VH, was brought to sales in the third quarter with a treated lateral length of 10,500 feet and 30-day initial production rate of 1,730 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boed), or 1,460 Bopd, 165 barrels per day (Bpd) of NGLs and 0.6 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) of natural gas.  Completed well costs are targeted at $7.8 million for a 9,500 foot lateral.  Benefiting from a shallow initial decline rate, EOG estimates reserves per well are 800 thousand barrels of oil equivalent (MBoe), net after royalty, with a 70 percent oil mix.  The company has identified 260 net drilling locations with estimated net resource potential of 210 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBoe).  EOG estimates all 260 of these locations are premium, and plans to ramp activity in the play in 2018.

Delaware Basin
EOG added to its inventory of prolific plays in the Delaware Basin with the introduction of the First Bone Spring.  Approximately 100,000 net acres in EOG's Northern Delaware Basin footprint are prospective for this high rate-of-return oil play.  The company identified an initial 555 net locations, with estimated net resource potential of 540 MMBoe.  EOG completed 15 net First Bone Spring wells in the past three years, with strong results and premium returns across a large portion of its acreage position.  All 540 net remaining drilling locations have premium rate of return potential.  Reserves per well are estimated to be 975 MBoe, net after royalty, with a 55 percent oil mix.  Targeted well cost is $7.3 million for a 7,000 foot lateral well.

EOG continues to deepen its technical knowledge of the Delaware Basin.  Drilling during the third quarter was aimed at further understanding development criteria for the large stacked-pay resource in the basin.  EOG conducted a number of spacing tests to optimize development, and continued to test additional zones for future premium potential.  EOG now expects to complete an additional 15 net wells in the Delaware Basin during 2017 for a total of 155 net wells, including 10 net wells in the First Bone Spring.

EOG completed 22 gross (20 net) wells in the Delaware Basin Wolfcamp in the third quarter with an average treated lateral length of 6,500 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 2,470 Boed, or 1,620 Bopd, 380 Bpd of NGLs and 2.8 MMcfd of natural gas.  In Lea County, NM, EOG completed a three-well pattern, the Antietam 9 Fed Com 701-703H, with an average treated lateral length of 7,000 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 4,145 Boed, or 2,725 Bopd, 640 Bpd of NGLs and 4.7 MMcfd of natural gas.

In the Delaware Basin Bone Spring plays, EOG completed nine gross (six net) wells in the third quarter with an average treated lateral length of 6,800 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 1,125 Boed, or 840 Bopd, 125 Bpd of NGLs and 0.9 MMcfd of natural gas.  In Lea County, NM, EOG completed the Righteous 6 State Com 601Y, with a treated lateral length of 7,100 feet and a 30-day initial production rate of 2,160 Boed, or 1,740 Bopd, 190 Bpd of NGLs and 1.4 MMcfd of natural gas.

In the Delaware Basin Leonard, EOG completed nine gross (nine net) wells in the third quarter with an average treated lateral length of 4,800 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 1,725 Boed, or 800 Bopd, 415 Bpd of NGLs and 3.0 MMcfd of natural gas. 

Bakken and Rockies
EOG completed 20 gross (19 net) wells in the Powder River Basin Turner during the third quarter, with an average treated lateral length of 7,600 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 1,630 Boed, or 1,040 Bopd, 185 Bpd of NGLs and 2.4 MMcfd of natural gas.  Encouraging tests of new targets and ongoing delineation of its 400,000 net acre position have prompted EOG to increase its activity, with five additional wells planned during 2017 for a total of 35 net wells.  The combination of low completed well costs, robust well productivity and moderate initial decline rates make the Powder River Basin competitive with the best performing assets at EOG.

In the DJ Basin, EOG completed seven gross (two net) wells targeting the Codell formation in the third quarter with an average treated lateral length of 9,400 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 790 Boed, or 665 Bopd, 75 Bpd of NGLs and 0.3 MMcfd of natural gas. 

EOG completed its planned 35 net well program in the North Dakota Bakken in the first half of 2017, and limited drilling activity is scheduled for the remainder of 2017.

South Texas Eagle Ford
EOG's South Texas Eagle Ford remained resilient during the third quarter, as robust infrastructure and comprehensive technology and communication assets enabled EOG to manage operations in a safe and efficient manner during Hurricane Harvey. Ongoing efficiency improvements have enabled EOG to add five net wells to its planned 2017 completions, for a total of 200 net wells.

In the third quarter, EOG completed 44 gross (39 net) wells in the Eagle Ford with an average treated lateral length of 6,500 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 1,685 Boed, or 1,340 Bopd, 175 Bpd of NGLs and 1.0 MMcfd of natural gas.  In Gonzales County, EOG completed a four-well pattern, the Angus Unit 6H-9H, with an average treated lateral length of 5,700 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 3,945 Boed, or 2,995 Bopd, 480 Bpd of NGLs and 2.8 MMcfd of natural gas. 

South Texas Austin Chalk
In the third quarter, EOG continued to delineate the South Texas Austin Chalk.  EOG completed eight gross (eight net) wells in Karnes County with an average treated lateral length of 6,000 feet per well and average 30-day initial production rates per well of 4,440 Boed, or 3,195 Bopd, 630 Bpd of NGLs and 3.7 MMcfd of natural gas.  Notably, EOG completed the Elbrus Unit 103H with a lateral length of 3,700 feet and 30-day initial production rate of 7,760 Boed, or 5,425 Bopd, 1,185 Bpd of NGLs and 6.9 MMcfd of natural gas. 

Hedging Activity
During the third quarter ended September 30, 2017, EOG did not enter into any additional crude oil or natural gas derivative contracts.

A comprehensive summary of EOG's crude oil and natural gas derivative contracts is provided in the attached tables.  

Capital Structure and Asset Sales
At September 30, 2017, EOG's total debt outstanding was $6.4 billion for a debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 31 percent.  Considering cash on the balance sheet at the end of the third quarter, EOG's net debt was $5.5 billion for a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 28 percent.  For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures, please refer to the attached tables.

Proceeds from asset sales in the first nine months of 2017 totaled $192 million.

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 nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 reported Net Income (Loss) (GAAP) to reflect actual net cash received from (payments for) settlements of commodity derivative contracts by eliminating the unrealized mark-to-market (gains) losses from these transactions, to eliminate the net (gains) losses on asset dispositions in 2017 and 2016, to add back impairment charges related to certain of EOG's assets in 2017 and 2016, to eliminate the impact of the Trinidad tax settlement in 2016, to add back certain voluntary retirement expense in 2016, to add back acquisition costs related to the Yates Transaction in 2016, to add back an early lease termination payment as the result of a legal settlement in 2017 and to add back the transaction costs for the formation of a joint venture in 2017.  EOG believes this presentation may be useful to investors who follow the practice of some industry analysts who adjust reported company earnings to match hedge realizations to production settlement months and make certain other adjustments to exclude non-recurring items.  EOG management uses this information for purposes of comparing its financial performance with the financial performance of other companies in the industry.

The following chart adjusts the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 reported Net Income (Loss) (GAAP) to Earnings Before Interest Expense (Net), Income Taxes (Income Tax Provision (Benefit)), Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization, Exploration Costs, Dry Hole Costs and Impairments (EBITDAX) (Non-GAAP) and further adjusts such amount to reflect actual net cash received from (payments for) settlements of commodity derivative contracts by eliminating the unrealized mark-to-market (MTM) (gains) losses from these transactions and to eliminate the net (gains) losses on asset dispositions (Net).  EOG believes this presentation may be useful to investors who follow the practice of some industry analysts who adjust reported Net Income (Loss) (GAAP) to add back Interest Expense (Net), Income Taxes (Income Tax Provision (Benefit)), Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization, Exploration Costs, Dry Hole Costs and Impairments and further adjust such amount to match realizations to production settlement months and make certain other adjustments to exclude non-recurring and certain other items.  EOG management uses this information for purposes of comparing its financial performance with the financial performance of other companies in the industry.

Crude Oil and Natural Gas Financial Commodity

Derivative Contracts

                       

EOG accounts for financial commodity derivative contracts using the mark-to-market accounting method.  Prices received by EOG for its crude oil production generally vary from NYMEX West Texas Intermediate prices due to adjustments for delivery location (basis) and other factors.  EOG entered into crude oil basis swap contracts in order to fix the differential between pricing in Midland, Texas, and Cushing, Oklahoma.  Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's crude oil basis swap contracts through November 2, 2017.  The weighted average price differential expressed in $/Bbl represents the amount of reduction to Cushing, Oklahoma, prices for the notional volumes expressed in Bbld covered by the basis swap contracts.

On March 14, 2017, EOG executed the optional early termination provision granting EOG the right to terminate certain crude oil price swaps with notional volumes of 30,000 Bbld at a weighted average price of $50.05 per Bbl for the period March 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017.  EOG received cash of $4.6 million for the early termination of these contracts, which are included in the below table.  Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's crude oil price swap contracts through November 2, 2017, with notional volumes expressed in Bbld and prices expressed in $/Bbl.

EOG has sold call options which establish a ceiling price for the sale of notional volumes of natural gas as specified in the call option contracts.  The call options require that EOG pay the difference between the call option strike price and either the average or last business day NYMEX Henry Hub natural gas price for the contract month (Henry Hub Index Price) in the event the Henry Hub Index Price is above the call option strike price.  In addition, EOG has purchased put options which establish a floor price for the sale of notional volumes of natural gas as specified in the put option contracts.  The put options grant EOG the right to receive the difference between the put option strike price and the Henry Hub Index Price in the event the Henry Hub Index Price is below the put option strike price.  Presented below is a comprehensive summary of EOG's natural gas call and put option contracts through November 2, 2017, with notional volumes expressed in MMBtud and prices expressed in $/MMBtu.

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 recoverable 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

(EOG) are based on current available information and expectations as of the date of the accompanying press release.  EOG undertakes no obligation, other than as required by applicable law, to update or revise this forecast, whether as a result of new information, subsequent events, anticipated or unanticipated circumstances or otherwise.  This forecast, which should be read in conjunction with the accompanying press release and EOG's related Current Report on Form 8-K filing, replaces and supersedes any previously issued guidance or forecast.
