Apache reports 34 percent growth in onshore North America liquids production in 2013

- Onshore North America liquids production increased 45,600 barrels per day in 2013

HOUSTON, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Apache Corporation (NYSE, Nasdaq: APA) today announced full-year 2013 earnings of $2.2 billion or $5.50 per diluted common share and adjusted earnings,* which exclude certain items that impact the comparability of results, of $3.2 billion or $7.92 per share. In 2012, Apache reported earnings of $1.9 billion or $4.92 per diluted common share and adjusted earnings of $3.8 billion or $9.48 per share. Net cash provided by operating activities totaled approximately $9.8 billion in 2013, compared with $8.5 billion in the prior year, with cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities* totaling $9.8 billion, compared with $10.3 billion in 2012.

Apache also reported that onshore North American liquids production increased 34 percent in 2013 and the company replaced 140 percent of 2013 production through drilling.

"Our strong performance is driven by predictable liquids production growth from our North American onshore assets combined with large free cash flow generation from our international operations," said G. Steven Farris, chairman and chief executive officer at Apache. "We increased onshore North America liquids production by 45,600 barrels per day through drilling in 2013, and we replaced 140 percent of worldwide production through the drill bit.

"We made significant strides in focusing our portfolio during the year, exiting production on the Gulf of Mexico Shelf, streamlining our Canada position and establishing our partnership with Sinopec in Egypt," Farris said. "The proceeds of these transactions – which together total approximately $7 billion – have provided the company with additional financial flexibility. The sale of our Argentina operations announced yesterday continues our decisive strategic steps in 2013."

Fourth-quarter 2013 financial results

Apache reported fourth-quarter 2013 earnings of $174 million or 43 cents per share and adjusted earnings* of $631 million or $1.57 per share. For the same period in the prior year, Apache reported earnings of $649 million or $1.64 per diluted common share and adjusted earnings of $907 million or $2.27 per share. Net cash provided by operating activities totaled approximately $2.5 billion, up from $2.1 billion a year earlier, with cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities* totaling $2.1 billion, compared with $2.8 billion in the year-ago period.

Fourth-quarter production and operating highlights

Highlights from fourth quarter drilling include:

  • Total worldwide net daily production of oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids (NGLs) averaged 688,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day. Excluding the noncontrolling interest in Egypt operations, production totaled 661,000 boe per day. Liquids production comprised 55 percent of the total.
  • The Permian and Central regions increased liquids production 32,500 barrels per day over the prior-year period. Total production from the two regions – 227,000 boe per day – was 33 percent of Apache's total production.
  • The Permian Region achieved record production averaging 134,000 boe per day, up 13 percent from the prior-year period. The region averaged 43 rigs in operation during the quarter, spud 242 gross wells (83 horizontals) and completed 289 gross wells (235 net).
  • Apache's Central Region's production of 93,000 boe per day was 18 percent above the prior-year period. Liquids production was up 57 percent from the prior-year period. The region averaged 25 drilling rigs and drilled 66 gross (51 net) wells.

Year-end 2013 reserves

Worldwide estimated proved reserves totaled 2.65 billion boe at year-end 2013.  Excluding acquisitions, divestments and revisions, proved reserves increased 4 percent. Extensions and discoveries of 389 million boe were 140 percent of 2013 production.

The Permian Region replaced 323 percent of production through drilling and increased proved reserves by nearly 14 percent to 910 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe). The Central Region replaced 195 percent of production and increased proved reserves nearly 14 percent to 304 MMboe.

Impact of Gulf of Mexico Shelf divestiture

On Sept. 30, 2013, Apache completed the sale of its Gulf of Mexico Shelf operations and properties to Fieldwood Energy LLC, a portfolio company of Riverstone Holdings, for $3.75 billion and assumption of liabilities for future abandonment costs of the properties with an estimated discounted value of $1.5 billion. In addition to reducing production volumes, the divestiture affected the company's fourth-quarter 2013 financial results in these areas:

  • U.S. oil price realizations were impacted by the sale of Shelf production that sold at a premium to the West Texas Intermediate benchmark. Apache's realized oil price in the United States averaged $93.36 per barrel in the fourth quarter, down from $105.82 in the third quarter.
  • Apache's adjusted worldwide effective tax rate* increased to 44 percent as higher-rate international operations made up a larger portion of total income before taxes absent income from Shelf operations. In the third quarter, Apache's adjusted worldwide effective tax rate* was 42 percent.

Oil and gas prices

Apache's mix of hydrocarbon production during the fourth quarter 2013 included approximately 46 percent crude oil and 9 percent natural gas liquids (NGLs). Due to the premium prices received for crude oil and NGLs, these products contributed 83 percent of the company's revenue during the period.

Worldwide, Apache received an average price of $100.59 per barrel of crude oil during the fourth quarter compared with $98.93 per barrel in the prior-year period. Apache received an average price of $3.71 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas, compared with $4.14 per Mcf in the prior-year period.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(In millions, except per share data)



















Reconciliation of income attributable to common stock to adjusted earnings:

The press release discusses Apache's adjusted earnings.  Adjusted earnings exclude certain items that management believes affect the comparability of operating results and are meaningful for the following reasons:










Management uses adjusted earnings to evaluate the company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and gas producing companies.










Ÿ

Management believes this presentation may be useful to investors who follow the practice of some industry analysts who adjust reported company earnings for items that may obscure underlying fundamentals and trends.  










Ÿ

The reconciling items below are the types of items management believes are frequently excluded by analysts when evaluating the operating trends and comparability of the company's results.

Reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities:

The press release discusses Apache's cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities. It is presented because management believes the information is useful for investors because it is used internally and widely accepted by those following the oil and gas industry as a financial indicator of a company's ability to generate cash to internally fund exploration and development activities, fund dividend programs, and service debt. It is also used by research analysts to value and compare oil and gas exploration and production companies, and is frequently included in published research when providing investment recommendations. Cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities, therefore, is an additional measure of liquidity, but is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities.



The following table reconciles net cash provided by operating activities to cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Windstream, a leading provider of advanced network and cloud communications, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
