EQT Corporation (NYSE: EQT) today announced second quarter 2013 earnings of $86.9 million, or $0.57 per diluted share; compared to second quarter 2012 earnings of $31.4 million, or $0.21 per diluted share. Operating cash flow was $316.7 million, compared to second quarter 2012 operating cash flow of $166.0 million; and adjusted cash flow per share was $2.10 in the second quarter 2013, compared to $1.12 in the second quarter 2012. EQT’s second quarter 2013 operating income was $171.3 million, a 110% increase from the same quarter in 2012. The non-GAAP financial measures are detailed and reconciled in the Non-GAAP Disclosures section below.

Second Quarter Highlights 2013 vs. 2012:

  • Production sales volume was 54% higher
  • Marcellus production sales volume was 111% higher
  • Production LOE per Mcfe was 20% lower
  • Production SG&A per Mcfe was 32% lower
  • Midstream gathered volume was 50% higher

  • Increased 2013 Production sales guidance to 360-365 Bcfe
  • Increased Marcellus EUR’s and drilling locations in its core development areas

Earnings per share, adjusted cash flow per share, and operating income were higher due to increased production sales, higher prices, increased gathered volumes, and increased transmission capacity sales and throughput. The higher revenues were partially offset by higher non-cash compensation expenses, which were $6.7 million higher than last year. Net operating revenues increased 58% to $469.7 million; while net operating expenses rose by $81.7 million, to $298.4 million.
