DENVER, Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --  

  • Production sales volumes of 1.53 MMBoe for the second quarter were at the high end of guidance range of 1.45-1.55 MMBoe
  • Capital expenditures of $59 million in the second quarter were below guidance range of $65-$75 million
  • Denver-Julesburg ("DJ") Basin oil price differential averaged $2.16 per barrel; represents 55% reduction from the second quarter of 2016
  • Lease operating expense ("LOE") averaged $3.61 per Boe; represents 32% improvement from the second quarter of 2016
  • DJ Basin LOE of $3.06 per Boe in the second quarter; represents 18% improvement from the second quarter of 2016
  • Issued $275 million of Senior Notes due 2025; proceeds were used with cash on hand to reduce long-term debt and redeem existing $315 million of Senior Notes due 2019; extends nearest maturity to 2022

Bill Barrett Corporation (the "Company") (NYSE: BBG) today reported second quarter of 2017 financial and operating results and reiterates 2017 operating guidance.

For the second quarter of 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $18.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share. Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2017 was a net loss of $12.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share. EBITDAX for the second quarter of 2017 was $36.7 million. Adjusted net income (loss) and EBITDAX are non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures. Please reference the reconciliations to GAAP financial statements at the end of this release.

Chief Executive Officer and President Scot Woodall commented, "We executed on our operational plan and posted very good results that translated into an across the board beat compared to sell-side consensus estimates. This was primarily achieved by higher production, higher oil price realizations, due to an improvement in differentials, and lower per unit LOE. We are seeing encouraging early results from DSUs that utilized higher sand concentration and tighter frac stage spacing. Our operations team continues to demonstrate drilling efficiencies as average drilling days for XRL wells in 2017 are approximately 18% lower compared to the average of 2016. Our pace of development is increasing with the previously announced addition of a second drilling rig in the DJ Basin. We also saw positive early performance from recompletions in the Uinta Oil Program during the quarter. We maintain operational control and flexibility with respect to our capital program, including the ability to adjust spending as warranted based on changes to the commodity price environment. Our liquidity consists of a cash position in excess of $150 million and an undrawn credit facility that is supported by our underlying hedge position. We also have no near-term debt maturities. As demonstrated by previous actions, we will be capital disciplined and financially responsible as we navigate the current commodity price environment."

Cash operating costs (LOE, gathering, transportation and processing costs and production tax expense) averaged $6.21 per Boe in the second quarter of 2017, a 21% reduction compared to the second quarter of 2016, when cash operating costs averaged $7.85 per Boe.

LOE averaged $3.61 per Boe in the second quarter of 2017, a 32% reduction relative to the second quarter of 2016, when LOE averaged $5.28 per Boe. LOE in the DJ Basin averaged $3.06 per Boe in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $3.74 per Boe in the second quarter of 2016. The year-over-year reduction was a result of improved operational efficiencies, disposition of higher LOE wells in the Uinta Oil Program ("UOP") and lease operating cost reductions in both the DJ Basin and the UOP.

Higher production tax expense compared to the first quarter of 2017 was due to an annual adjustment of Colorado ad valorem tax based on actual assessments and on the related Colorado severance tax credit adjustment that was recorded in the first quarter.

Debt and Liquidity

At June 30, 2017, the principal debt balance was $677.6 million, while cash and cash equivalents were $155.6 million, resulting in net debt (principal balance of debt outstanding less the cash and cash equivalents balance) of $522.0 million.

The Company currently has $274 million in available borrowing capacity on its credit facility, after taking into account a $26 million letter of credit.

On April 28, 2017, the Company closed on an offering of $275 million in aggregate principal amount of 8.75% senior unsecured notes due 2025. Net proceeds from the offering, together with available cash on hand, was used to reduce long-term debt through the redemption of the outstanding 7.625% Senior Notes due 2019 and the outstanding 5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028. The Company recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $7.9 million related to the redemption.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2017 totaled $58.5 million, which was below the Company's guidance range of $65-$75 million. The Company operated one drilling rig for the majority of the quarter and spud 8 extended reach lateral ("XRL") and 1 mid-reach lateral ("MRL") well. Completion operations were finalized on 4 XRL and 10 MRL wells in the DJ Basin and a 9 well recompletion program in the UOP. As previously outlined in the Company's 2017 capital budget discussion, a second drilling rig was added in the DJ Basin in June 2017.

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

DJ Basin

The Company produced an average of 14,456 Boe/d in the second quarter of 2017. The Company placed 4 XRL and 10 MRL wells on initial flowback during the second quarter and is currently operating two drilling rigs.

The following provides a synopsis of the current activity for drilling and spacing units ("DSU") that are in the drilling and completion or the initial flowback phase:

  • 5-62-27 - The DSU is located within the central area of NE Wattenberg and includes 9 XRL wells that incorporated enhanced proppant of approximately 1,500 pounds of sand per lateral foot. The wells were placed on initial flowback in March 2017 and early production data is encouraging as the wells continue to trend towards peak production.
  • 6-62-10/6-62-11 - The DSU is located within the northern area of NE Wattenberg and includes 4 XRL wells. An additional 10 MRL wells, with lateral lengths of approximately 7,300 feet, were drilled to develop the DSU based on lease configuration. The wells were placed on initial flowback during the second quarter of 2017. This is the initial DSU that incorporated enhanced proppant of up to 1,500 pounds of sand per lateral foot and a reduction in frac spacing from approximately 175 feet between stages to approximately 100-140 feet per stage.
  • 5-63-32 - The DSU is located within the western area of NE Wattenberg and includes 5 XRL wells. Completion operations have commenced and the wells are scheduled to be placed on initial flowback in the third quarter of 2017. The wells will incorporate enhanced proppant of up to 1,500 pounds of sand per lateral foot and frac spacing of approximately 120 feet between stages.
  • 5-63-30 - The DSU is located within the western area of NE Wattenberg and includes 6 XRL wells. Completion operations have commenced and the wells are expected to be placed on initial flowback in the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • 5-61-20 - The DSU is located within the central area of NE Wattenberg and includes 8 XRL wells that are being drilled concurrently with two rigs. Drilling commenced in the third quarter and the wells are anticipated to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • XRL well drilling days to rig release have averaged approximately 6.5 days per well during 2017, including a best-in-class well that was drilled in approximately 5.1 days. Average feet drilled per day for XRL wells has increased to 3,424 feet drilled per day in 2017 compared to the 2016 average of 2,668 feet drilled per day.
  • Drilling and completion costs for the XRL wells drilled during the first half of 2017 averaged approximately $4.5 million per well, which includes the cost of incorporating higher proppant concentrations and tighter frac stage spacing. The Company continues to work to mitigate the expected risk of inflationary pressure on service costs during the second half of 2017.

Uinta Oil Program

Production sales volumes averaged 2,296 Boe/d (89% oil) during the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016 average of 2,130 Boe/d. Second quarter of 2017 production sales volumes benefited from the completion of a 9 well recompletion program. The oil price differential averaged $3.60 per barrel less than WTI as new marketing contracts became effective on May 1, 2017.

Management believes the separate presentation of the realized and unrealized commodity derivative gains and losses is useful because the realized cash settlement portion provides a better understanding of the Company's hedge position. The Company also believes that this disclosure allows for a more accurate comparison to its peers.

Discretionary cash flow, adjusted net income (loss) and EBITDAX are non-GAAP measures. These measures are presented because management believes that they provide useful additional information to investors for analysis of the Company's ability to internally generate funds for exploration, development and acquisitions as well as adjusting net income (loss) for certain items to allow for a more consistent comparison from period to period. In addition, the Company believes that these measures are widely used by professional research analysts and others in the valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, and that many investors use the published research of industry research analysts in making investment decisions.


These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or other income, profitability, cash flow or liquidity measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The definition of these measures may vary among companies, and, therefore, the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
