WPX's second-quarter 2017 results mark an all-time high for the company’s liquids production and reflect unaudited net income attributable to common shareholders of $72 million, or income of $0.18 per share on a diluted basis.

Total liquids production (oil and NGL) surpassed 70,000 barrels per day for the first time in a quarter, averaging 72,400 barrels per day in second-quarter 2017. This was 17 percent higher than WPX’s prior best for liquids production (62,000 barrels per day in fourth-quarter 2015) when its portfolio included Piceance Basin operations that have since been divested.

Liquids growth was driven by WPX’s third consecutive quarterly high for oil output. Second-quarter 2017 oil production of 58,600 barrels per day was 27 percent higher than the most recent quarter and up 43 percent vs. the same period a year ago.

All three of WPX’s operating areas posted double-digit oil growth vs. the most recent quarter, led by a 49 percent increase in the Delaware Basin following a full-quarter benefit from volumes associated with the Panther acquisition in March.

“Since my first quarterly webcast at WPX three years ago, we’ve undertaken more than $7 billion of transactions, transformed the company’s portfolio and doubled our oil production,” said Rick Muncrief, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

“Without question, we’re reaping attractive results from our long-term strategy. Most importantly, we remain intensely focused on reaching our deleveraging goals by year-end 2018,” Muncrief added.

In the Delaware Basin, WPX’s easternmost Wolfcamp A well to date – the Blue 34-1H well – had 30-day production averaging 1,560 Boe/d (69% oil). A Second Bone Spring Sand well had 30-day production averaging 1,215 Boe/d (56% oil). A Third Bone Spring well had 30-day production averaging 1,647 Boe/d (50% oil). In the Wolfcamp D interval, the East Pecos 22-9H had 30-day production averaging 2,051 Boe/d (31% oil).

In the Williston Basin, six wells on the Etstatis pad posted a 24-hour peak IP average of 2,809 Boe/d (81% oil) and 30-day cumulative production averaging 53,303 Boe per well. The highest IP occurred on the Etstatis 32-29HA well which posted a 24-hour high of 3,532 Boe/d. The same well had cumulative 30-day production of 64,779 Boe. 

In the San Juan Basin, WPX has a 12-month permit inventory and already has completed the vast majority of its pad and facilities construction for its planned development through early 2018.
