Anadarko  Petroleum  Corporation  Analyst  Notes

On March 4, 2014, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (Anadarko) announced its 2014 capital expectations and guidance. "Our 2014 capital program is again a prudent and disciplined approach that is within anticipated cash flow. We expect this capital plan to enable us to increase year-over-year 'same-store' sales volumes by 6 to 7 percent. Driving this year-over-year growth is an expected increase in our oil production of approximately 40,000 barrels per day," said Al Walker, Chairman, President and CEO of Anadarko. "During 2014, Anadarko expects to drill up to 25 high-potential deepwater exploration/ appraisal wells. Additionally, we plan to continue accelerating value through active portfolio management and monetizations, as demonstrated by the recently announced divestiture of our non-operated assets in Bohai Bay, China, and the closing of our sale of a 10-percent working interest in Mozambique's Offshore Area 1 to OVL." In 2014, the Company expects capital investments of $8.1 billion to $8.5 billion. The full analyst notes on Anadarko Petroleum Corporation are available to download free of charge at:
