Devon Energy Reports Second-Quarter 2013 Results

Stock quotes in this article: DVN

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN) today reported net earnings of $683 million or $1.69 per common share ($1.68 per diluted share) for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. This compares with the second-quarter 2012 net earnings of $477 million or $1.18 per common share ($1.18 per diluted share).

Adjusting for items securities analysts typically exclude from their published estimates, the company earned $491 million or $1.21 per diluted share in the second quarter. This adjusted earnings result represents a 119 percent increase compared to the second quarter of 2012.

Record Production Driven By Strong Oil Growth

Total production increased to an average of 698,000 oil-equivalent barrels (Boe) per day in the second quarter of 2013, exceeding the top-end of the company’s guidance range by 8,000 barrels per day. This is the highest average daily rate in Devon’s history from its North American property base. Second-quarter production benefited from better than expected results from several core development areas, including the Permian Basin and Barnett Shale.

Devon’s strong growth in oil production continued in the second quarter. In aggregate, oil production averaged 169,000 barrels per day, a 14 percent increase compared to the second quarter of 2012 and a 4 percent increase compared to the first quarter of 2013. Driven by the Permian Basin, the most significant growth came from the company’s U.S. operations, where oil production increased 36 percent year over year.

“The second quarter was an outstanding one for Devon as we continued to successfully grow high-margin oil production,” said John Richels, president and chief executive officer. “We remain on track to deliver total companywide oil production growth in the high teens for 2013, led by light-oil growth of nearly 40 percent in the U.S.”

“In addition to delivering an excellent quarter, we achieved some exciting results in a new light-oil resource play,” said Dave Hager, chief operating officer. “We have now identified 400,000 net acres in the Mississippian Trend with Woodford Oil Shale potential.”
