06:39 EDTCOGCabot Oil & Gas sees Q4 production about 1,642 Mmcfe per day
Cabot expects production for Q4 to be approximately 1,642 million cubic feet equivalent, or Mmcfe, per day, including approximately 1,552 million cubic feet, or Mmcf, per day of natural gas and approximately 14,977 barrels, or Bbl, per day of liquids. Equivalent production for the quarter is expected to exceed the midpoint of the company's guidance range of 1,626 Mmcfe per day. Based on the expected production volumes for the fourth quarter, the company expects its total production growth for 2015 to be approximately 13%. Natural gas price realizations, including the effect of hedges, are expected to be $1.94 per thousand cubic feet in Q4. Excluding the impact of hedges, natural gas price realizations for the quarter are expected to be $1.52 per Mcf, representing a 75c discount to NYMEX settlement prices and an improvement relative to the company's Q4 guidance range of 90c-$1.00 below NYMEX settlement prices. Realized natural gas prices exceeded the company's expectations due to an improvement in basis differentials throughout Appalachia during the quarter. Oil price realizations are expected to be $37.74 per Bbl. Cabot expects to incur approximately $97 million in capital expenditures associated with activity during the fourth quarter of 2015. Based on this anticipated level of spending during the quarter, the Company expects to incur approximately $774 million in capital expenditures associated with activity during the full year of 2015, compared to the Company's 2015 capital program guidance of $850 million. The lower capital spending was a result of reduced activity levels in the fourth quarter, along with continued improvements in operating efficiencies and further reductions in service costs. Including the change in accrued capital costs relating to 2014 operating activity that was paid in 2015, total capital expenditures (including acquisitions) for 2015 are expected to be approximately $972 million. Contributions to equity method investments for 2015 are expected to be approximately $29 million. Cabot expects to recognize a non-cash, after-tax impairment charge of approximately $73 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 primarily associated with legacy, non-core fields due to the significant decline in commodity prices.

07:36 EDTAPAAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.
