DD&A expense per unit in 2012, excluding the first quarter write-down of natural gas properties in East Texas, increased approximately 32 percent from the same period last year to $15.50 per BOE; this increase generally reflected year-over-year increases in development costs.
Energen’s utility operations under Alagasco generated net income of $49.4 million in 2012; this $2.8 million increase from 2011 reflects the utility’s ability to earn on a higher level of equity representing investment in utility plant.
