1Q 2019 SUMMARY

  • Expecting to generate more than $100 million of free cash flow in 2019
  • 1Q cash flow from operations 88% higher vs. a year ago
  • 1Q Delaware oil realizations of WTI less $0.09, including basis swaps
  • 1Q Delaware natural gas realizations of NYMEX less $0.76, including basis swaps
  • Weather in Delaware Basin reduced 1Q oil volumes by approx. 1,400 bbl/d
  • 2019 development capital plan unchanged
  • Announced or closed $550 million in recent deals; proceeds going to balance sheet


First-quarter oil volumes were 96,100 barrels per day, up nominally from the most recent quarter. Multiple storm-related power outages in the Delaware Basin reduced first-quarter oil volumes by approximately 1,400 bbl/d.

Planned increases in 2019 production are expected to materialize more significantly in the latter half of the year. WPX continues to expect 5-10 percent oil growth from fourth-quarter 2018 to fourth-quarter 2019.

“Our first-quarter results are straight down the fairway. I’m very pleased with our strong, consistent performance and our continued success on the transaction front where we’ve generated substantial returns,” says Rick Muncrief, WPX chairman and chief executive officer.

Capital spending for drilling and completions activity on operated wells in first-quarter 2019 was $279.7 million, including the utilization of two rigs in the Delaware which were released in mid-January and late March.

WPX’s Delaware rig count is now at five, which will drive a lower run rate for the remainder of the year. WPX’s 2019 D&C budget for operated wells remains at $1.0-$1.1 billion.

Total product revenues of $507 million in first-quarter 2019 were $100 million higher than the same period a year ago. Quarterly oil sales grew 25 percent.

DD&A, general and administrative expenses, production taxes, and interest expense all declined in first-quarter 2019 on a per-Boe basis vs. a year ago. 

Adjusted EBITDAX (a non-GAAP financial measure) increased 56 percent vs. a year ago to $312 million in first-quarter 2019. See our press release for reconciliations on non-GAAP financial measures.
