Chesapeake Energy Corporation Reports Financial And Operational Results For The 2013 Second Quarter

The company reported adjusted ebitda of $1.424 billion, an increase of 77% year over year. Operating cash flow, which is cash flow provided by operating activities before changes in assets and liabilities, was $1.370 billion, an increase of 53% year over year. Additional definitions and reconciliations to comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of adjusted net income available to common stockholders, operating cash flow, ebitda and adjusted ebitda are provided on pages 12 - 16 of this release.

Doug Lawler, Chesapeake’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Chesapeake reported a strong quarter operationally and financially. I am very excited and energized by what I have seen during my first six weeks with the company. Chesapeake has an exceptionally broad and deep asset base, which offers tremendous opportunity for value creation. A comprehensive companywide review of our capital allocation and other processes is underway and I believe these initiatives will result in substantial further improvement in both near-term and long-term capital efficiency and returns.”

2013 Second Quarter Total Production Increases 7% Year over Year to 4.1 Bcfe per Day; Oil Production Increases 44% Year over Year to 116,000 Bbls per Day

Chesapeake’s daily production for the 2013 second quarter averaged approximately 4.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (bcfe), an increase of 7% from the 2012 second quarter and an increase of 2% from the 2013 first quarter. The company’s average daily production consisted of approximately 3.1 billion cubic feet (bcf) of natural gas and approximately 168,000 barrels (bbls) of liquids, comprised of approximately 116,000 bbls of oil and approximately 52,000 bbls of natural gas liquids (NGL).

During the 2013 second quarter, average daily oil production increased 44% year over year and 12% sequentially, and average daily NGL production increased 5% year over year and decreased 4% sequentially. The sequential NGL volume decrease was primarily the result of increased ethane rejection during the second quarter. Liquids accounted for 25% of total production during the 2013 second quarter, up from 21% during the 2012 second quarter.
