17:30 EDTPDCEPDC Energy sees FY15 CapEx about $557M, FY15 production 13.8M-14.5M Boe
PDC's capital budget for 2015 is approximately $557M, a decrease of 14% compared to its 2014 capital budget. The company's 2015 budget includes $526M of development capital and $31M for lease maintenance, exploration and other expenditures. The 2015 capital budget is focused on organic growth opportunities in PDC's Inner and Middle core areas of the Wattenberg Field. The Company estimates net production volumes for 2015 will be between 13.8M-14.5M barrels of oil equivalent and expects production growth throughout the year. The company anticipates a commodity mix of approximately 45% crude oil, 20% natural gas liquids and 35% natural gas. The commodity mix reflects the company's increased focus on allocating capital towards its highest-value drilling opportunities in both the Inner and Middle core areas of the Wattenberg Field. For 2015, the company projects it will drill approximately 90% of its wells in the Inner and Middle Core areas, up from about 67% in those areas in 2014. PDC estimates its 2014 production exit rate to be approximately 32,500 Boe per day and its full-year 2014 production volumes to be within its guidance range of 9.3 to 9.5 MMoe.
