Devon Energy Reports Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: DVN

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN) today reported net earnings of $207 million or $0.51 per common share ($0.51 per diluted share) for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. This compares with a fourth-quarter 2012 net loss of $357 million or $0.89 per common share ($0.89 per diluted share).

Adjusting for items securities analysts typically exclude from their published estimates, the company earned $447 million or $1.10 per diluted share in the fourth quarter. This represents a 49 percent increase in adjusted earnings compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

Operating cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $1.4 billion, a 26 percent increase compared to the year-ago period. For the year ended December 31, 2013, Devon generated operating cash flow of $5.4 billion. Including $419 million of cash received from asset sales, the company’s total cash inflows reached $5.9 billion for 2013.

“2013 was a year of strong execution and exciting change for Devon,” said John Richels, president and chief executive officer. “Our drilling programs not only drove impressive oil production growth, but also expanded margins and improved operating cash flow. Additionally, we high-graded our portfolio through an accretive Eagle Ford Shale acquisition, an innovative midstream combination, and initiated an asset divestiture program. These actions provide a platform for Devon to achieve attractive high-margin growth in 2014 and for many years to come.”

Key Operating Highlights

Permian Basin – Production averaged a record 86,000 oil-equivalent barrels (Boe) per day in the fourth quarter, a 29 percent increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. Light oil production accounted for approximately 60 percent of Devon’s total Permian production.

The Bone Spring oil play in the Delaware Basin was a significant contributor to the company’s growth in the Permian. Devon added 21 new Bone Spring wells to production in the fourth quarter, with initial 30-day rates averaging 800 Boe per day, of which 70 percent was light oil. These outstanding initial production rates exceeded the company’s Bone Spring type curve by about 40 percent.
