Stone Energy's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

In addition, in this call, we may refer to financial measures that may be deemed non-GAAP financial measures, as defined under the Exchange Act. Please refer to the press release we issued yesterday, which is posted on our website for a reconciliation of the differences between the financial measures, and the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

And with that, I won’t go into all the financials in detail. I’ll focus on a few items. Starting off, earnings for the quarter were $30.5 million, or $0.62 per share, under the First Call estimate of $0.81, with some of the variants due to higher non-cash interest expense and non-cash DD&A expense.

Our discretionary cash flow for the quarter was $147 million or right around $3 per share, which is pretty close to the First Call average of $3.06. Production for the quarter came in at 40,500 Boe per day or 243 MMcfe per day. This was at the lower end of our range for the second quarter guidance, primarily driven by greater than expected third party pipeline downtime and maintenance projects.

Shut-ins due to tropical storm Debby, especially at Pompano where the Destin pipeline that produces into was shut in for a few extra days, and even had some tornado interruptions in West Virginia in late June. Debby probably impacted us by about 5 million cubic feet a day for the quarter. A lot of the third-party pipeline downtime and maintenance was roughly 10 million cubic feet a day equivalence.

It is important to highlight that the lower than expected quarterly volumes does not reduce reserve figures or estimated recovery. It is simply a slight deferral of revenue due to third-party pipelines and weather.

For July, we were back up to about 42,500 barrels equivalents per day or around 255 million cubic feet equivalents per day. For the second quarter the production mix continue to have an attractive oil and liquids rating with about 46% oil and 7% NGLs. and 47% natural gas. We would expect a similar mix in the third quarter and then a slight shift towards gas in the fourth quarter as incremental volumes from Appalachia and La Cantera number one will become more gas oriented.
