TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) reported third-quarter oil volumes of 122,300 barrels per day, in line with second-quarter results as expected stemming from the effects of prior curtailments and reduced development activity.


WPX released all four of its completion crews during the second quarter in response to the COVID-19 impact on oil demand and commodity prices. WPX now has two crews deployed in the Delaware Basin and one in the Williston Basin after starting to resume completions in July.

Current oil volumes are approximately 140,000 bbl/d due to strong well results in both of WPX’s basins. WPX now plans to average 137,000-143,000 bbl/d in the fourth quarter while reducing capital spending by another $50 million to a new estimate of $1.0-$1.1 billion for full-year 2020.

WPX reported an unaudited third-quarter loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of $148 million, or a loss of $0.26 per share on a diluted basis.

The loss primarily was driven by a $110 million net loss on derivatives resulting from non-cash forward mark-to-market changes in the company’s hedge book, and a loss on the extinguishment of debt.

As underlying forward commodity prices improved in the quarter, the value of hedging contracts was reduced from levels recorded at June 30.

Excluding the forward mark-to-market changes in derivatives and other items, WPX posted adjusted net income from continuing operations (a non-GAAP financial measure) in third-quarter 2020 of $60 million, or income of $0.11 per share. A reconciliation accompanies this press release.

Adjusted EBITDAX (a non-GAAP financial measure) hit $389 million in the quarter, up 8 percent from $361 million a year ago. A reconciliation accompanies this press release.

Free cash flow from operations (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $79 million in third-quarter 2020 and $241 million for the first three quarters of the year. A reconciliation accompanies this press release.

WPX now expects to generate more than $300 million of free cash flow in 2020, up 50 percent from its most recent estimate of $200 million.

MERGER UPDATE

As previously announced on Sept. 28, WPX and Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) have entered into an agreement to combine in an all-stock merger of equals, making the combined entity the fifth largest independent oil producer in the country.

The merger offers unique benefits to WPX shareholders, including enhanced free cash flow growth potential, the opportunity for multiple expansion given pro forma metrics, large synergies as a percentage of market cap, significant ownership in the pro forma company and the acceleration of WPX’s five-year vision targets.

Integration plans are underway, led by a transition team comprised of senior leaders from each company. Additionally, the team is tasked with capitalizing on the synergies and operational efficiencies that contribute to the significant upside of the combined company.

The combination of WPX and Devon will benefit from a premier multi-basin portfolio, headlined by a premium acreage position in the economic core of the Delaware Basin.

Under the terms of the agreement, WPX shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.5165 shares of Devon common stock for each share of WPX common stock owned. Devon shareholders will own approximately 57 percent of the combined company and WPX shareholders will own approximately 43 percent of the combined company on a fully diluted basis.

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021 and has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies. The closing of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approvals by Devon and WPX shareholders.

CEO PERSPECTIVE

Our proposed merger is on track and is proving to be a transformational event not only for our two companies, but for our industry as a whole based on events that have unfolded since our announcement,” said Rick Muncrief, WPX’s chairman and chief executive officer.

Consolidation is a strategic step that reduces costs, improves margins and accelerates the return of capital to shareholders in very meaningful ways.

WPX has been a leader in our peer group, and the combined company will provide us with even more strength and capacity to deliver value through disciplined management and an unwavering focus on profitable, per-share growth,” Muncrief said.

Our teams are committed to closing the transaction as quickly as possible in order to begin executing on the performance improvement opportunities we know already exist today.”

I want to commend WPX employees for their continued professionalism and commitment to a smooth integration despite the personal impacts that will undoubtedly occur at all levels of our organization as we act boldly on behalf of shareholders,” Muncrief added.

DELAWARE BASIN

WPX’s Delaware production in the Permian averaged 139.1 Mboe/d in the third quarter compared with 143.7 Mboe/d in the most recent quarter and 96.7 Mboe/d a year ago. The year-over-year increase is driven by WPX’s acquisition of Felix Energy.

WPX completed 13 Delaware wells during the third quarter, including promising results from delineation work in various Bone Spring benches.

Four wells in the 3rd Bone Spring Lime hit respective 24-hour highs of 4,255 Boe/d, 3,804 Boe/d, 3,697 Boe/d and 3,602 Boe/d ranging from 53 to 65 percent oil. After 30 days of production, the four wells had a combined average of 3,004 Boe/d per well.

Third-quarter Delaware completions also include a 2nd Bone Spring Sand well – the CBR 9-4H-56-1-321H well – that hit a 24-hour high of 4,159 Boe/d (62 percent oil) during initial production and averaged 3,742 Boe/d over its first 30 days.

A third-quarter Wolfcamp A well – the CBR 9-4I-56-1-428H well – hit a 24-hour high of 3,877 Boe/d (45 percent oil) during initial production and averaged 3,043 Boe/d over its first 30 days.

Delaware D&C costs continue to improve. The average cost for recent 2-mile laterals on the CBR 9-4 and 10-3 pads in the Stateline area that included the Bone Spring wells was $5.9 million per well.

WILLISTON BASIN

Williston Basin production averaged 68.7 Mboe/d in third-quarter 2020 compared with 63.3 Mboe/d in the most recent quarter and 76.8 Mboe/d a year ago.

WPX completed 16 Williston wells during the third quarter, including nine wells in the Three Forks formation and seven wells in the Bakken formation.

The highest 24-hour rate for the third-quarter Williston completions was 8,686 Boe/d (84 percent oil) on the Omaha Woman 24-13-12 HD well, which is a three-mile lateral.

All four wells on the Omaha Woman drilling pad are three-mile laterals, which had a combined average of nearly 5,700 Boe/d per well during initial production.

WPX’s third-quarter Williston completions also include the four-well Wolverine pad, which had a combined average exceeding 3,800 Boe/d per well during initial production. The top well on the pad – the Wolverine 21-22HD well – hit a 24-hour high of 4,922 Boe/d (84 percent oil). All four wells are two-mile laterals.

3Q PRODUCTION

Total production volumes of 207.7 Mboe/d in third-quarter 2020 were comparable with second-quarter 2020 and were 20 percent higher than the same period a year ago. Liquids volumes accounted for 78 percent of third-quarter 2020 production.

Oil volumes of 122,300 bbl/d in third-quarter 2020 were comparable with second-quarter 2020 despite service outages affecting rates for portions of the quarter in both of its basins. Third-quarter 2020 volumes were up 13 percent vs. the same period a year ago.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This communication includes “forward-looking statements” as defined by the SEC. Such statements include those concerning strategic plans, Devon’s and WPX’s expectations and objectives for future operations, as well as other future events or conditions, and are often identified by use of the words and phrases such as “expects,” “believes,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “continue,” “may,” “aims,” “likely to be,” “intends,” “forecasts,” “projections,” “estimates,” “plans,” “expectations,” “targets,” “opportunities,” “potential,” “anticipates,” “outlook” and other similar terminology. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this communication that address activities, events or developments that Devon or WPX expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond Devon’s and WPX’s control. Consequently, actual future results could differ materially from Devon’s and WPX’s expectations due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to: the risk that Devon’s and WPX’s businesses will not be integrated successfully; the risk that the cost savings, synergies and growth from the Proposed Transaction may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; the diversion of management time on transaction-related issues; the effect of future regulatory or legislative actions on the companies or the industries in which they operate, including the risk of new restrictions with respect to hydraulic fracturing or other development activities on Devon’s or WPX’s federal acreage or their other assets; the risk that the credit ratings of the combined company or its subsidiaries may be different from what the companies expect; the risk that Devon or WPX may be unable to obtain governmental and regulatory approvals required for the Proposed Transaction, or that required governmental and regulatory approvals may delay the Proposed Transaction or result in the imposition of conditions that could reduce the anticipated benefits from the Proposed Transaction or cause the parties to abandon the Proposed Transaction; the risk that a condition to closing of the Proposed Transaction may not be satisfied; the length of time necessary to consummate the Proposed Transaction, which may be longer than anticipated for various reasons; potential liability resulting from pending or future litigation; changes in the general economic environment, or social or political conditions, that could affect the businesses; the potential impact of the announcement or consummation of the Proposed Transaction on relationships with customers, suppliers, competitors, management and other employees; the ability to hire and retain key personnel; reliance on and integration of information technology systems; the risks associated with assumptions the parties make in connection with the parties’ critical accounting estimates and legal proceedings; the volatility of oil, gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) prices; uncertainties inherent in estimating oil, gas and NGL reserves; the impact of reduced demand for our products and products made from them due to governmental and societal actions taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; the uncertainties, costs and risks involved in Devon’s and WPX’s operations, including as a result of employee misconduct; natural disasters, pandemics, epidemics (including COVID-19 and any escalation or worsening thereof) or other public health conditions; counterparty credit risks; risks relating to Devon’s and WPX’s indebtedness; risks related to Devon’s and WPX’s hedging activities; competition for assets, materials, people and capital; regulatory restrictions, compliance costs and other risks relating to governmental regulation, including with respect to environmental matters; cyberattack risks; Devon’s and WPX’s limited control over third parties who operate some of their respective oil and gas properties; midstream capacity constraints and potential interruptions in production; the extent to which insurance covers any losses Devon or WPX may experience; risks related to investors attempting to effect change; general domestic and international economic and political conditions, including the impact of COVID-19; and changes in tax, environmental and other laws, including court rulings, applicable to Devon’s and WPX’s business.

In addition to the foregoing, the COVID-19 pandemic and its related repercussions have created significant volatility, uncertainty and turmoil in the global economy and Devon’s and WPX’s industry. This turmoil has included an unprecedented supply-and-demand imbalance for oil and other commodities, resulting in a swift and material decline in commodity prices in early 2020. Devon’s and WPX’s future actual results could differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this communication due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related impacts, including, by, among other things: contributing to a sustained or further deterioration in commodity prices; causing takeaway capacity constraints for production, resulting in further production shut-ins and additional downward pressure on impacted regional pricing differentials; limiting Devon’s and WPX’s ability to access sources of capital due to disruptions in financial markets; increasing the risk of a downgrade from credit rating agencies; exacerbating counterparty credit risks and the risk of supply chain interruptions; and increasing the risk of operational disruptions due to social distancing measures and other changes to business practices. Additional information concerning other risk factors is also contained in Devon’s and WPX’s most recently filed Annual Reports on Form 10-K, subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K and other SEC filings.

Many of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions are beyond Devon’s or WPX’s ability to control or predict. Because of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Nothing in this communication is intended, or is to be construed, as a profit forecast or to be interpreted to mean that earnings per share of Devon or WPX for the current or any future financial years or those of the combined company will necessarily match or exceed the historical published earnings per share of Devon or WPX, as applicable. Neither Devon nor WPX gives any assurance (1) that either Devon or WPX will achieve their expectations, or (2) concerning any result or the timing thereof, in each case, with respect to the Proposed Transaction or any regulatory action, administrative proceedings, government investigations, litigation, warning letters, consent decree, cost reductions, business strategies, earnings or revenue trends or future financial results.

All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning Devon, WPX, the Proposed Transaction, the combined company or other matters and attributable to Devon or WPX or any person acting on their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements above. Devon and WPX assume no duty to update or revise their respective forward-looking statements based on new information, future events or otherwise.
