Newfield Exploration proved reserves at year end 2012 566M BOE, down 13% YoY Proved reserves at year-end 2012 were 566M BOE, down 13% from 652M BOE at year-end 2011. The decrease relates primarily to low natural gas prices, the sale of non-strategic assets in 2012 and produced volumes. This decrease was partially offset by the addition of 86M BOE of reserves through the company's active drilling programs. Reserves were determined using SEC pricing of $2.76 per MMBtu of natural gas and $94.84 per Bbl of oil.

Newfield Exploration should consider upstream MLP, says FBR Capital FBR Capital believes Newfield Exploration management should consider an upstream master limited partnership since the company's Uinta Basin's growth potential is not being fully recognized by investors. FBR said its analysis indicates the pretax value of the Uinta business within an MLP would be $5.3B compared with Newfield's current enterprise value of $6.2B. The firm raised its price target for the stock to $40 from $35 to reflect the company's turnaround progress and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
