Chesapeake Energy Corporation Reports 2018 Second Quarter Financial And Operational Results

PR Newswire

OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) today reported financial and operational results for the 2018 second quarter. Highlights include:

  • 2018 second quarter net loss available to common stockholders of $40 million, or $0.04 per diluted share; 2018 second quarter adjusted net income attributable to Chesapeake of $139 million, or $0.15 per diluted share
  • Average 2018 second quarter production of approximately 530,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day, up 8 percent compared to 2017 second quarter, adjusted for asset sales
  • Average 2018 second quarter oil production of approximately 90,000 barrels of oil per day, up 11 percent compared to 2017 second quarter, adjusted for asset sales
  • Powder River Basin (PRB) production achieved a record daily rate of approximately 32,000 boe per day on July 22; company now expects production from the area to reach 38,000 boe per day by year-end primarily driven by Turner performance

Doug Lawler, Chesapeake's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Chesapeake continues to make significant progress in achieving our strategic priorities of reducing leverage, increasing margins and reaching cash flow neutrality. Last week's announcement to sell our Utica position will allow us to retire nearly $2 billion of outstanding debt, while the recent significant ramp in our Powder River Basin volumes position us to replace the divested Utica EBITDA within a year. For the third consecutive quarter, we have recorded impressive cash flow driven by better-than-expected oil production. We expect to see continued meaningful improvements in growing our cash flow as our total oil production, adjusted for asset sales, moves higher throughout the rest of 2018 and into 2019. Lower total debt, improving margins and greater capital efficiency are positioning Chesapeake for significant equity value creation moving forward."

2018 Second Quarter Results

For the 2018 second quarter, Chesapeake reported a net loss of $16 million and a net loss available to common stockholders of $40 million, or $0.04 per diluted share.  The company's EBITDA for the 2018 second quarter was $382 million. Adjusting for items that are typically excluded by securities analysts, the 2018 second quarter adjusted net income attributable to Chesapeake was $139 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, while the company's adjusted EBITDA was $536 million. Reconciliations of financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP to non-GAAP measures are provided on pages 14 - 18 of this release.

Production expenses during the 2018 second quarter were $2.86 per boe, compared to $2.92 per boe in the 2017 second quarter, primarily as a result of certain 2018 and 2017 divestitures, partially offset by increased saltwater disposal costs. General and administrative expenses (including stock-based compensation) during the 2018 second quarter were $1.89 per boe, compared to $1.45 per boe in the 2017 second quarter. The increase was primarily driven by stock-based compensation awards. The company's gathering, processing, and transportation expenses decreased by 5 percent year over year to $7.04 per boe from $7.44 per boe during the 2017 second quarter primarily as a result of certain 2018 and 2017 divestitures, reduced fees due to restructured midstream contracts and lower volume commitments.

Capital Spending Overview

Chesapeake's total capital expenditures (including accruals) were approximately $595 million during the 2018 second quarter, including capitalized interest of $43 million, compared to approximately $667 million in the 2017 second quarter. A summary is provided in the table below.

(a)   Includes assets retained as of June 30, 2018.

Chesapeake continues to benefit from the depth and breadth of its portfolio, which offers stacked pay potential across a diverse set of assets. The company remains focused on optimizing these resources through enhanced completions, longer laterals and spacing optimization and continues to drive costs lower to enhance its cash flow.

The Powder River Basin (PRB) in Wyoming is quickly establishing itself as the growth engine of the company, as recently demonstrated by a 78 percent increase in net production compared to the average 2017 fourth quarter rate. On July 22, 2018, total net production hit a new record of approximately 32,000 net boe per day (42% oil, 41% natural gas and 17% natural gas liquids), compared to an average 2017 fourth quarter rate of 18,000 boe per day. Chesapeake now projects net production from the area will reach approximately 38,000 boe per day by year-end 2018, and expects total net annual production from the PRB to more than double in 2019 compared to 2018.

In late-June and July 2018, Chesapeake placed a total of five Turner wells on production with initial daily rates ranging from approximately 1,500 boe per day to 3,200 boe per day, with oil production representing approximately 65 percent. These wells are still in flow back and cleaning up and the company expects higher rates from several over the next 30 days. The Turner program continues to deliver impressive results across a broad area, with wells now producing across an area over 20 miles wide in the field.

In April 2018, six Turner wells were placed on production and spaced at approximately 1,980 to 2,300 feet apart to test well performance with reduced spacing. As the wells continue to clean up, all six wells are currently performing as well as or better than previously unbounded wells, or wells spaced approximately 2,640 feet apart. With days on production ranging from 85 to 100, all six wells have reached daily gross production rates of approximately 1,600 boe per day to 2,600 boe per day, with oil production ranging from 35 percent to 45 percent.

In July 2018, Chesapeake moved to five rigs in the PRB, all of which are primarily focused on the Turner formation. The company placed nine wells on production during the 2018 second quarter, and expects to place 14 wells on production during the 2018 third quarter and 14 wells on production during the 2018 fourth quarter. In addition, the company is exploring the potential of adding a sixth rig in 2019 and remains encouraged about the future growth potential offered by additional formations such as the Teapot, Parkman, Niobrara, Sussex and Mowry, among others.

To support anticipated rig activity, Chesapeake recently reached an agreement with Williams Partners, L.P. and Crestwood Equity Partners, L.P. for an expansion of their existing gas gathering system and processing facility at the existing competitive fee-rate structure. The company is also in active discussions with several midstream and downstream providers on awarding its crude and water gathering business in the basin.

The Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas remains Chesapeake's EBITDA-generating backbone, consistently delivering high-margin oil volumes and stable production. The company continues to drive costs out of its operations and is currently utilizing four rigs in the Eagle Ford. The company placed 48 wells on production during the 2018 second quarter, and expects to place 38 wells on production during the 2018 third quarter and 47 wells on production during the 2018 fourth quarter.

Similar to the PRB, Chesapeake continues to appraise liquid-rich opportunities across its expansive acreage position in its Mid-Continent operating area in Oklahoma and is deploying advanced completions and longer laterals to test new concepts. In the meantime, Oswego volumes continue to climb with average 30-day production rates of 1,015 boe per day and over 80 percent oil cuts. Chesapeake is currently utilizing two rigs in the Mid-Continent. The company placed eight wells on production during the 2018 second quarter, and expects to place 12 wells on production during the 2018 third quarter and nine wells on production during the 2018 fourth quarter.

The Haynesville Shale in Louisiana continues to deliver consistent production volumes, and with approximately 75 percent of the development locations remaining undeveloped, offers significant potential for future growth. To date, the advances provided by enhanced completions and longer laterals, including the first 15,000-foot lateral ever drilled in the basin, have allowed the company to grow 2018 second quarter production by approximately 15% year over year while utilizing the same number of rigs. Additionally, with ample takeaway capacity, Chesapeake is well positioned to access Henry Hub pricing and other premium markets. Chesapeake moved an additional rig into the Haynesville in July and is currently utilizing four rigs. The company placed 12 wells on production during the 2018 second quarter, and expects to place six wells on production during the 2018 third quarter and nine wells on production during the 2018 fourth quarter.

Chesapeake's premium Marcellus Shale position in Pennsylvania continues to be a significant cash flow generator for the company. The company's enhanced completions and longer laterals continue to create additional value across the company's Lower Marcellus and Upper Marcellus formations, and the company plans to test the deeper Utica formation found under its acreage position in 2019. In July 2018, Chesapeake successfully drilled its longest lateral to date in the Lower Marcellus Shale at approximately 13,380 feet, only to be surpassed by an even longer planned lateral of approximately 14,500 feet currently being drilled. Both wells are expected to be placed on production before year-end 2018. Chesapeake is currently utilizing three rigs in the Marcellus. The company placed 10 wells on production during the 2018 second quarter, and expects to place 14 wells on production during the 2018 third quarter and 18 wells on production during the 2018 fourth quarter.

Chesapeake recently announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell its interests in the Utica Shale operating area located in Ohio for approximately $2.0 billion, plus the right to receive an additional $100 million in consideration based on future natural gas prices, to Encino Acquisition Partners, a private oil and gas company headquartered in Houston, Texas. The transaction, which is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including the receipt of third-party consents, is expected to close in the 2018 fourth quarter. Chesapeake is currently utilizing no rigs and placed seven wells on production during the 2018 second quarter. The company expects to move two rigs back into the Utica in the near term, in accordance with the recent purchase and sale agreement signed last week regarding the asset, and expects to place 14 wells on production during the 2018 third quarter.

This news release and the accompanying Outlook include "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements are statements other than statements of historical fact. They include statements that give our current expectations, management's outlook guidance or forecasts of future events, production and well connection forecasts, estimates of operating costs, anticipated capital and operational efficiencies, planned development drilling and expected drilling cost reductions, anticipated timing of wells to be placed into production, general and administrative expenses, capital expenditures, the timing of anticipated asset sales and proceeds to be received therefrom, the expected use of proceeds of anticipated asset sales, projected cash flow and liquidity, our ability to enhance our cash flow and financial flexibility, plans and objectives for future operations, the ability of our employees, portfolio strength and operational leadership to create long-term value, and the assumptions on which such statements are based. Although we believe the expectations and forecasts reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance they will prove to have been correct. They can be affected by inaccurate or changed assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results include those described under "Risk Factors" in Item 1A of our annual report on Form 10-K and any updates to those factors set forth in Chesapeake's subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q or current reports on Form 8-K (available at http://www.chk.com/investors/sec-filings). These risk factors include the volatility of oil, natural gas and NGL prices; the limitations our level of indebtedness may have on our financial flexibility; our inability to access the capital markets on favorable terms; the availability of cash flows from operations and other funds to finance reserve replacement costs or satisfy our debt obligations; downgrade in our credit rating requiring us to post more collateral under certain commercial arrangements; write-downs of our oil and natural gas asset carrying values due to low commodity prices; our ability to replace reserves and sustain production; uncertainties inherent in estimating quantities of oil, natural gas and NGL reserves and projecting future rates of production and the amount and timing of development expenditures; our ability to generate profits or achieve targeted results in drilling and well operations; leasehold terms expiring before production can be established; commodity derivative activities resulting in lower prices realized on oil, natural gas and NGL sales; the need to secure derivative liabilities and the inability of counterparties to satisfy their obligations; adverse developments or losses from pending or future litigation and regulatory proceedings, including royalty claims; charges incurred in response to market conditions and in connection with our ongoing actions to reduce financial leverage and complexity; drilling and operating risks and resulting liabilities; effects of environmental protection laws and regulation on our business; legislative and regulatory initiatives further regulating hydraulic fracturing; our need to secure adequate supplies of water for our drilling operations and to dispose of or recycle the water used; impacts of potential legislative and regulatory actions addressing climate change; federal and state tax proposals affecting our industry; potential OTC derivatives regulation limiting our ability to hedge against commodity price fluctuations; competition in the oil and gas exploration and production industry; a deterioration in general economic, business or industry conditions; negative public perceptions of our industry; limited control over properties we do not operate; pipeline and gathering system capacity constraints and transportation interruptions; terrorist activities and cyber-attacks adversely impacting our operations; an interruption in operations at our headquarters due to a catastrophic event; certain anti-takeover provisions that affect shareholder rights; and our inability to increase or maintain our liquidity through debt repurchases, capital exchanges, asset sales, joint ventures, farmouts or other means.

In addition, disclosures concerning the estimated contribution of derivative contracts to our future results of operations are based upon market information as of a specific date. These market prices are subject to significant volatility. Our production forecasts are also dependent upon many assumptions, including estimates of production decline rates from existing wells and the outcome of future drilling activity. Expected asset sales may not be completed in the time frame anticipated or at all. We caution you not to place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this news release, and we undertake no obligation to update any of the information provided in this release or the accompanying Outlook, except as required by applicable law. In addition, this news release contains time-sensitive information that reflects management's best judgment only as of the date of this news release.

(a)   

Realized gains (losses) include the following items: (i) settlements and accruals for settlements of undesignated derivatives related to current period production revenues, (ii) prior period settlements for option premiums and for early-terminated derivatives originally scheduled to settle against current period production revenues, and (iii) gains (losses) related to de-designated cash flow hedges originally designated to settle against current period production revenues. Unrealized gains (losses) include the change in fair value of open derivatives scheduled to settle against future period production revenues (including current period settlements for option premiums and early terminated derivatives) offset by amounts reclassified as realized gains (losses) during the period. Although we no longer designate our derivatives as cash flow hedges for accounting purposes, we believe these definitions are useful to management and investors in determining the effectiveness of our price risk management program.



(b)    

Net of amounts capitalized.



(c)    

Realized (gains) losses include interest rate derivative settlements related to current period interest and the effect of (gains) losses on early-terminated trades. Settlements of early-terminated trades are reflected in realized (gains) losses over the original life of the hedged item. Unrealized (gains) losses include amounts reclassified to realized (gains) losses during the period.

(a)  

Adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and total adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Chesapeake, both in the aggregate and per dilutive share, are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss) available to common stockholders or earnings (loss) per share. Adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and adjusted earnings (loss) per share exclude certain items that management believes affect the comparability of operating results. The company believes these adjusted financial measures are a useful adjunct to earnings calculated in accordance with GAAP because:




(i)

Management uses adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders to evaluate the company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas producing companies.





(ii)

Adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts.





(iii)

Items excluded generally are one-time items or items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated.  Accordingly, any guidance provided by the company generally excludes information regarding these types of items.





Because adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and total adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Chesapeake exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) available to common stockholders and total adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Chesapeake may vary among companies, our calculation of adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and total adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Chesapeake may not be comparable to similarly titled financial measures of other companies.



(b)  

Our presentation of diluted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and diluted adjusted net income (loss) per share excludes 207 million and 1 million shares considered antidilutive for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The number of shares used for the non-GAAP calculation was determined in a manner consistent with GAAP.



(c)  

Our effective tax rate in the three months ended June 30, 2018 was 0%. Due to our valuation allowance position, no income tax effect from the adjustments has been included in determining adjusted net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017.



(d)  

Other for the three months ended June 30, 2018 includes a $61 million gain related to an extinguishment of the CHK Utica overriding royalty interest conveyance obligation.

(a)   

Operating cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities before changes in components of working capital and other. Operating cash flow is presented because management believes it is a useful adjunct to net cash provided by operating activities under GAAP and provides useful information to investors for analysis of the Company's ability to generate cash to fund exploration and development, and to service debt. Operating cash flow is widely accepted as a financial indicator of an oil and natural gas company's ability to generate cash that is used to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service debt. This measure is widely used by investors and rating agencies in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and natural gas exploration and production industry. Operating cash flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of cash flows, or as a measure of liquidity. Because operating cash flow excludes some, but not all, items that affect net cash provided by operating activities and may vary among companies, our calculation of operating cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The increase in operating cash flow for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 is mainly due to an increase in prices and volumes.



(b)   

EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation, depletion and amortization expense. EBITDA is presented as a supplemental financial measurement in the evaluation of our business. We believe that it provides additional information regarding our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. This measure is widely used by investors and rating agencies in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies. EBITDA is also a financial measurement that, with certain negotiated adjustments, is reported to our lenders pursuant to our bank credit agreements and is used in the financial covenants in our bank credit agreements. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance (or liquidity) under GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flows from operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP.



(c)   

Other items for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 includes a $61 million gain related to an extinguishment of the CHK Utica overriding royalty interest conveyance obligation.

Capitalized Interest ($ in millions)(d)

$175

Total Capital Expenditures ($ in millions)

$2,175 - $2,475



(a)   

Based on 2017 production of 407 mboe per day, adjusted for 2017 asset sales and 2018 asset sales signed to date.



(b)    

Includes expected settlements for oil, natural gas and NGL derivatives adjusted for option premiums. For derivatives closed early, settlements are reflected in the period of original contract expiration.



(c)    

Excludes expenses associated with stock-based compensation, which are recorded in general and administrative expenses in Chesapeake's Consolidated Statement of Operations.



(d)    

Excludes changes due to pending closing of Utica Shale transaction and planned subsequent liability management.



(e)    

Excludes non-cash amortization of approximately $19 million.



(f)     

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas producing companies. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain items that management believes affect the comparability of operating results. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net income but, it is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to identify the amount or significance of events or transactions that may be included in future GAAP net income but that management does not believe to be representative of underlying business performance. The company further believes that providing estimates of the amounts that would be required to reconcile forecasted adjusted EBITDA to forecasted GAAP net income would imply a degree of precision that may be confusing or misleading to investors. Items excluded from net income to arrive at adjusted EBITDA include interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation, depletion and amortization expense as well as one-time items or items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated.

Oil, Natural Gas and Natural Gas Liquids Hedging Activities

Chesapeake enters into oil, natural gas and NGL derivative transactions in order to mitigate a portion of its exposure to adverse changes in market prices. Please see the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and annual reports on Form 10-K filed by Chesapeake with the SEC for detailed information about derivative instruments the company uses, its quarter-end derivative positions and accounting for oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids derivatives.

As of July 24, 2018, including July and August derivative contracts that have settled, the company had downside price protection on a portion of its 2018 oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids production. The company had downside oil price protection through swaps at an average price of $54.09 per bbl, and under three-way collar arrangements based on an average bought put NYMEX price of $47.00 per bbl and exposure below an average sold put NYMEX price of $39.15 per bbl. The company had downside natural gas price protection through swaps and two-way collars at an average price of $2.97 per mcf. Chesapeake also had downside ethane, propane, butane, isobutane and natural gasoline price protection through swaps at an average price of $0.29, $0.79, $0.88, $0.92 and $1.42 per gallon (as well as a portion of butane at 70.5 percent of WTI), respectively. Further details summarized below.

In addition, the company had downside protection, through open swaps on a portion of its 2019 oil production at an average price of $59.44 per bbl. The company also initiated downside protection on a portion of its 2019 natural gas production under three-way collar arrangements based on an average bought put NYMEX price of $2.80 per mcf and exposure below an average sold put NYMEX price of $2.50 per mcf.
