Energen's adjusted 3Q16 per-share loss was 24 percent better than internal expectations largely due to lower-than-expected operating expenses and better-than-expected production. Per-unit lease operating expense (LOE) was 10 percent better-than-expected and benefited largely from lower workover expense and lower water disposal and other costs; net salaries and general and administrative expense (SG&A) also was 10 percent better-than-expected per-unit due to a wide variety of cost reductions partially offset by higher non-cash compensation. Exploration expense was below budget primarily due to the timing of geological and geophysical costs.
