07:30 EDTOXY, XOM, CVX, PXD, EOG, CHKU.S. oil and gas companies paying less in taxes amid shale boom, WSJ says
U.S. oil and gas companies have been paying less in federal income taxes as spending to drill in shale formations has allowed them to take advantage of incentives in the tax code for drilling and capital expenditures, reported The Wall Street Journal, citing data from the nonpartisan Taxpayers for Common Sense. Occidental Petroleum (OXY) has deferred the most U.S. income tax over the past five years among its peers, while Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) and EOG Resources (EOG) were also mentioned in the report as having deferred large amounts of federal tax in recent years. Other companies mentioned in the report include Exxon Mobil (XOM), Chevron (CVX) and Chesapeake (CHK). Reference Link

Chesapeake (CHK) announced that it has executed a Purchase and Sale Agreement to sell assets in the Southern Marcellus Shale and a portion of the Eastern Utica Shale in West Virginia to Southwestern Energy Company (SWN) for aggregate proceeds of $5.375B. The transaction, which is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including the receipt of third-party consents, is expected to close in Q4. Chesapeake has agreed to sell approximately 413K net acres and approximately 1,500 wells in Northern West Virginia and Southern Pennsylvania, of which 435 are in the Marcellus and Utica formations, along with related property, plant and equipment. Average net daily production from these properties was approximately 56K barrels of oil equivalent during the month of September, consisting of 184K Mcf of gas, 20K barrels of natural gas liquids and 5,000 barrels of condensate. The company said, "We expect our full-year production guidance for 2015 to remain in the range of 7-10% growth from 2014 levels adjusted for asset sales. I am very proud of the efforts that our Southern Marcellus team and all of our employees have put into building and developing our assets and creating value for our company. We look forward to deploying the proceeds from this significant transaction in ways that will continue to drive even greater shareholder value.”
