10:17 EDTHESHess raises 2015 production forecast to 360K-370K boe/d
Hess said during its Q2 earning call that in light of its "strong performance year to date," the company is raising its overall company production forecast for 2015 by 10,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day to a range of 360,000-370,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, excluding Libya. The company added that is production improvement in Q2 was driven by higher production from the Bakken and Utica shale plays, the joint development area of Malaysia/Thailand and Tubular Bells in the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Bakken net production averaged 119,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in Q2, above its guidance range, and Hess is increasing its FY15 production forecast for the Bakken to a range of 105,000-110,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, up from previous guidance of 95,000-105,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
07:37 EDTHESHess Corp. reports Q2 adjusted EPS (52c), consensus (73c)
Oil and gas production was 391,000 boepd, up 23 percent from 319,000 boepd in the second quarter of 2014. Assets contributing to the volume growth were primarily the Bakken shale play, the Utica shale play, the Joint Development Area of Malaysia/Thailand and the Gulf of Mexico. Asset sales reduced production by 9,000 boepd. Lower realized selling prices reduced adjusted net income by approximately $740 million after-tax compared with the prior-year quarter. In addition, second quarter 2015 results benefitted from higher production, lower cash operating costs and reduced exploration expenses that were partially offset by higher depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense. On an unadjusted basis, the Corporation reported a net loss of $567 million for the second quarter of 2015, including a noncash goodwill impairment charge of $385 million, and net income of $931 million in the prior-year quarter.
