Monday, May 03, 2010

EOG Resources Reports First Quarter 2010 Results17:34 EDT Monday, May 03, 2010- Total Company Crude Oil Production Increased 25 Percent Year-Over-Year - On Track to Achieve 13 Percent Total Company Production Growth in 2010 - Realizing Strong, Consistent Results from Horizontal Crude Oil PlaysHOUSTON, May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) (EOG) today reported first quarter 2010 net income of $118.0 million, or $0.46 per share. This compares to first quarter 2009 net income of $158.7 million, or $0.63 per share. The results for the first quarter 2010 included a $16.6 million ($9.9 million after tax, or $0.04 per share) revision in the estimated fair value of a contingent consideration liability associated with a previously disclosed acquisition of unproved acreage and a previously disclosed non-cash net gain of $7.8 million ($5.0 million after tax, or $0.02 per share) on the mark-to-market of financial commodity transactions. During the quarter, the net cash inflow related to financial commodity contracts was $23.0 million ($14.7 million after tax, or $0.06 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 quarter was $117.8 million, or $0.46 per share. Adjusted non-GAAP net income for the first quarter 2009 was $132.7 million, or $0.53 per share. (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income to GAAP net income.) �Operational Highlights and TargetsDriven primarily by production growth from its North Dakota Bakken and Fort Worth Basin Barnett Combo crude oil operations, EOG reported a 25 percent increase in crude oil production compared to the first quarter 2009.During the latter part of the first quarter, EOG began completing wells in the North Dakota Bakken following its winter drilling-only program. In the Parshall Field, the Van Hook 11-02H, in which EOG has 68 percent working interest, began production at 1,565 barrels of oil per day (Bopd). Also drilled in the Parshall Field, the Fertile 13-18H and Austin 23-32H began producing at 1,153 and 955 Bopd, respectively. EOG has 92 and 46 percent working interest in the wells, respectively. Outside of the Parshall Field in the Bakken Lite in Mountrail County, EOG drilled the Sidonia 18-14, which commenced production at 719 Bopd. EOG has 97 percent working interest in the well. EOG is operating 12 drilling rigs on its 580,000 net acre position in the North Dakota Bakken where it expects to average 32,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boepd), net in 2010. �EOG completed several multi-well patterns in the Fort Worth Basin Barnett Combo using enhanced completion techniques. In Montague County, the three-well pattern of Alamo A Unit #1H, #2H and #3H was drilled on 55-acre spacing. The wells, in which EOG has 97 percent working interest, began production at a combined rate of over 900 Bopd with 2.4 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (MMcfd). Further assessing recovery efficiencies in one of the thickest parts of the formation in Cooke County, the Settle B# 1H was drilled horizontally in an area that had previously been tested with vertical wells. With an initial production rate of 1,852 Bopd and 3.7 MMcfd of liquids-rich natural gas, it is EOG's best well to date in the Barnett Combo. The successful test, in which EOG has 97 percent working interest, has set up new horizontal locations on its eastern acreage limits of Cooke County. �In the South Texas Eagle Ford where EOG holds 505,000 net acres in the mature oil window, the Harper Unit #4H was completed to sales in Karnes County. The well, the 17th that EOG has drilled across a six-county area in the play, began production at a rate of 602 Bopd with 650 thousand cubic feet per day of natural gas. EOG has 100 percent working interest in the well. To date, EOG's initial production results in the play are consistent with the average well commencing production at an approximate 800 Bopd rate. EOG is operating a six-rig drilling program in the Eagle Ford and plans to significantly increase production in 2011.In the Mid-Continent Cleveland Play where EOG had previously drilled vertical wells, it is now developing its 60,000-acre position with horizontal drilling and enhanced completion technology at economic rates of return. Recoverable reserves per well in this play have increased by a factor of four. In Lipscomb County, the Appel 438 #5H and #6H recently began producing at 1,000 and 840 Bopd with 2.5 and 1.0 MMcfd, respectively. EOG has 100 percent working interest in the wells."An overview of EOG's first quarter results reflect our progress in developing crude oil and natural gas liquids from our cadre of horizontal oil plays," said Mark G. Papa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "With the strong liquids production growth that EOG is delivering, we are on track both to achieve our goal of total crude oil and natural gas liquids growth of 47 percent this year and further increase the liquids weighting of our production portfolio. We continue to target total company organic production growth of 13 percent for 2010."Capital StructureAt March 31, 2010, EOG's total debt outstanding was $2,797 million for a debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 22 percent. Taking into account cash on the balance sheet of $230 million, at the end of the quarter EOG's net debt was $2,567 million and the net debt-to-total capitalization ratio was 20 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).) To maintain a strong balance sheet with a low net debt-to-total capitalization ratio, EOG's goal is to generate cash proceeds by selling select North American natural gas producing assets or considering a joint venture transaction on certain natural gas shale properties by year-end 2010. � "EOG has a multi-year, high rate-of-return, liquids-rich drilling inventory. We plan to execute our drilling program and achieve our production growth targets while maintaining a strong balance sheet, with a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio at or below 25 percent. Given our liquids-driven total company production growth targets for the next three years of 13 percent, 19 percent and 21 percent combined with current NYMEX strip prices, we expect to be in a free cash flow position in 2012," Mr. Papa said.
