EOG Resources Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results17:07 EDT Tuesday, November 01, 2011- Achieves 11 Percent Total Company Organic Production Growth for First Nine Months of 2011 Versus Prior Year Period - Reports 54 Percent Total Company Crude Oil and Condensate Volume Growth Third Quarter Year-Over-Year and 51 Percent Growth for First Nine Months Year-Over-Year - Announces 49 Percent Total Liquids Volume Increase in Third Quarter and 47 Percent Growth for First Nine Months Year-Over-Year - Records Continued Positive Results from Tighter Eagle Ford Well Spacing - Realizes Ongoing Success in Permian Basin Wolfcamp - Delivers Consistent Results from North Dakota Bakken and Fort Worth Barnett Combo - Verifies 2011 Asset Disposition Program Still On TrackHOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EOG Resources, Inc. (NYSE: EOG) (EOG) today reported third quarter 2011 net income of $540.9 million, or $2.01 per diluted share. This compares to a third quarter 2010 net loss of $70.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share.Consistent with some analysts? practice of matching cash flow realizations to settlement months, and making certain other adjustments in order to exclude non-recurring items, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the third quarter 2011 was $223.2 million, or $0.83 per share. Adjusted non-GAAP net income for the third quarter 2010 was $46.6 million, or $0.18 per share. The results for the third quarter 2011 included net gains on asset dispositions of $132.9 million, net of tax ($0.49 per share), a $10.6 million, net of tax ($0.04 per share) impairment of certain non-core North American assets and a previously disclosed non-cash net gain of $357.7 million ($229.0 million after tax, or $0.85 per share) on the mark-to-market of financial commodity contracts. During the quarter, the net cash inflow related to financial commodity contracts was $52.5 million ($33.6 million after tax, or $0.12 per share). (Please refer to the attached tables for the reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income to GAAP net income (loss).)Operational HighlightsDriven by a 64 percent rise in United States crude oil and condensate production during the third quarter 2011, EOG delivered 54 percent total company crude oil and condensate production growth versus the third quarter 2010. For the first nine months of 2011, year-over-year crude oil and condensate production increased 51 percent. The South Texas Eagle Ford led the surge in crude oil production growth, followed by the Fort Worth Barnett Shale Combo.Total company liquids production increased 49 percent in the third quarter 2011 over the same period in the prior year and 47 percent year-over-year for the first nine months of 2011.EOG achieved 11 percent total company organic production growth for the first nine months of 2011 versus 2010. For the full year 2011, total company crude oil and condensate production is projected to increase by 51 percent, while total company liquids production is forecast to rise 47 percent compared to 2010.?These extraordinary double-digit liquids growth rates, driven primarily by high value organic crude oil production, confirm that EOG?s transition to a crude oil and liquids-focused company is complete,? said Mark G. Papa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. ?After assembling a best-in-class U.S. onshore liquids-rich portfolio, we are now harvesting these existing assets by maximizing their resource potential. Meanwhile, we continue to pursue new opportunities.?Crude Oil and Liquids ActivityAcross its dominant acreage position in the South Texas Eagle Ford crude oil window, EOG?s 2011 improved completion techniques and cost optimization practices continue to drive operational gains and enhanced well production results. Reflecting this combination, EOG has posted its best wells to date in the South Texas Eagle Ford. In Gonzales County, the northeastern-most part of EOG?s acreage, the Mitchell Unit #1H and #2H began initial production at peak rates of 2,821 and 3,090 barrels of crude oil per day (Bopd) with 2.8 and 2.9 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) of rich natural gas, respectively. The Meyer Unit #1H, #2H and #6H started sales at peak crude oil rates of 2,372, 1,600 and 2,918 Bopd, respectively, and produced 1.8, 2.2 and 2.7 MMcfd of associated rich natural gas, respectively. The Kerner Carson Unit #1H, #2H, #4H, #6H, #8H and #10H wells were turned to sales at crude oil production rates ranging from 1,580 to 2,239 Bopd with 1.2 to 1.9 MMcfd of rich natural gas. EOG has 100 percent working interest in these Gonzales County wells.South of Gonzales in Karnes County, the center of EOG?s acreage, the AFO Unit #1H, #2H and #3H began initial maximum production at 2,289, 1,700 and 1,548 Bopd, respectively, with rich natural gas production ranging from 1.2 to 1.6 MMcfd. EOG has 100 percent working interest in these wells. EOG has 50 percent working interest in the Deleon-Reinhard Unit #1H and Deleon-Wiatrek Unit #1H wells, which were completed at peak crude oil rates of 2,235 Bopd with 1.2 MMcfd and 2,161 Bopd with 1.7 MMcfd of rich natural gas, respectively.In LaSalle County, EOG?s southwestern-most acreage, the Naylor Jones A #6H and A #7H began initial production at 1,582 and 1,342 Bopd with 1.5 and 1.6 MMcfd of rich natural gas, respectively. EOG has 100 percent working interest in these wells.?As we apply what we?ve learned about the Eagle Ford across our extensive operations, EOG?s production results just get better and better,? Papa said. ?We are also seeing early positive results from each of our seven downspacing pilot programs. Drilling wells more tightly spaced than our original 130-acre patterns provides even more development opportunities for EOG.?Across its other crude oil and liquids-rich shale plays, EOG also recorded strong, consistent performance. In the Rocky Mountains, EOG has maintained a steady level of drilling activity in the Colorado Niobrara Shale and Wyoming Powder River Basin plays. Drilling results from the Mid-Continent Marmaton and Permian Basin Leonard also continued to be positive.In the Permian Basin Wolfcamp in Texas, EOG has been operating a two-rig program and plans to ramp up drilling activity early in 2012. Recent efforts have focused on completion techniques that increase reserves per well and improve cost efficiencies. In Irion and Crockett Counties, the University 40 #1306H, 40 #1308H and 40 #1504H were completed to sales with initial maximum production rates of 1,426, 1,293 and 1,338 Bopd with 0.9, 1.0 and 1.2 MMcfd of rich natural gas, respectively. EOG has 94 percent, 88 percent and 89 percent working interest in these wells, respectively. In Irion County, EOG has 88 percent working interest in the Mayer #5002H, which was turned to sales at 686 Bopd with 1.3 MMcfd of rich natural gas.Operational improvements are evidenced by individual well results in EOG?s North Texas Fort Worth Barnett Shale Combo. The play was a significant contributor to EOG?s crude oil and liquids growth both during the third quarter and in the first nine months of 2011 versus the same period in 2010. In Montague County, the Ketchum Unit #1H and #2H were brought to sales at 496 and 638 Bopd with increasing rich natural gas rates of 354 and 455 thousand cubic feet per day, respectively. Also in Montague County, the Farrell Unit A #1H, A #2H, B #3H and B #4H began initial production at crude oil rates ranging from 335 to 475 Bopd with 1.0 to 1.4 MMcfd of rich natural gas. EOG has 100 percent working interest in these wells.In North Dakota, EOG again reported consistent results from its drilling program. A number of wells were completed across the Bakken with strong initial production rates. In Mountrail County, the Liberty 18-14H LR, drilled with a 12,675-foot lateral, began initial production at 1,215 Bopd. EOG has 96 percent working interest in the well. In Dunn County, EOG has 84 percent working interest in the Horse Camp 2-11H and 101-11H. Completed in the Bakken and Three Forks formations, respectively, the wells began flowing to sales at initial maximum production rates of 1,323 and 1,833 Bopd, respectively. Also in the Three Forks, EOG has a 55 percent working interest in the Mandaree 102-05H, which was completed to sales at a maximum peak rate of 1,189 Bopd.EOG has resumed normal operations in both North Dakota and Waskada, Manitoba following spring flooding that temporarily impacted drilling activity. In a new area of EOG?s horizontal Waskada crude oil play, three recent wells were completed with initial production rates ranging from 300 to 400 Bopd, rates consistent with its 2010 drilling program results.?EOG continues to deliver consistent long-term production growth at high rates of return from our liquids-rich portfolio. We have the potential to see this growth trend continue for many years to come,? Papa said.Natural Gas ActivityConsistent with EOG?s overall strategy and emphasis on crude oil and liquids-rich production growth, North America natural gas production decreased 9 percent in the third quarter 2011 compared to the same prior year period. This reflects reduced drilling activity in a weak natural gas price environment, as well as previously announced natural gas asset sales.Capital StructureDuring the first nine months of 2011, total cash proceeds from asset sales were $1.3 billion. EOG anticipates full-year property sales of approximately $1.6 billion.At September 30, 2011, EOG?s total debt outstanding was $5.2 billion for a debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 29 percent. Taking into account $1.4 billion of cash on the balance sheet at the end of the third quarter, EOG?s net debt was $3.8 billion for a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 24 percent. EOG is targeting a net debt-to-total capitalization ratio of 30 percent or less at both year-end 2011 and 2012. (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).)?Our successful pursuit of high value crude oil and natural gas liquids growth is producing strong results for EOG. Most importantly, the majority of our liquids growth is oil as opposed to lower valued NGLs,? Papa said. ?EOG?s strategy is consistent with the game plan we articulated four years ago.?Conference Call Scheduled for November 2, 2011EOG?s third quarter 2011 results conference call will be available via live audio webcast at 8 a.m. Central time (9 a.m. Eastern time) on Wednesday, November 2, 2011.
