WPX Energy Announces 2011 Results

Stocks in this article: WPX

WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) today announced its unaudited financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and the year-ended Dec. 31, 2011. Highlights for the year include:

  • Revenue from domestic oil and NGL sales rose 87%
  • Oil production up 65%; NGL production up 25%; Gas production up 5%
  • Bakken Shale oil production more than tripled from 1Q to 4Q
  • Proved reserves increased 9% to a company record of nearly 5.3 Tcfe
  • Domestic production replaced at a rate of 188%
  • Proved, probable and possible (3P) reserves increased 7% to 18.5 Tcfe


WPX results for the year-ended Dec. 31, 2011, were impacted by non-cash impairment charges during the fourth quarter primarily due to a decline in forward natural gas prices.

Including these non-cash charges, WPX reported an unaudited net loss attributable to WPX Energy of $302 million in 2011, or a loss of $1.53 per share on a diluted basis. This compares with a net loss of $1,291 million, or a loss of $6.55 per share, on a diluted basis for 2010.

WPX’s adjusted EBITDAX was $1,330 million in 2011 – essentially equal to 2010. Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP measure. It is not a measure of net income or cash flows as determined by U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDAX to net income (loss) is included in this announcement, as well as a definition.

The 2011 pre-tax, non-cash charges of approximately $547 million related to certain proved and unproved natural gas properties, primarily in the Powder River Basin and Barnett Shale.

WPX also reported $61 million in non-cash charges for dry-hole and leasehold write offs during third-quarter 2011 associated with an unsuccessful exploratory well in Columbia County, Pa., and associated acreage.
