Apache corporate - reported results analysis


Apache corporate - reported results analysis

Report summary

Cash-flow neutrality remains as Apache's key strategic objective in 2016. Q1 realised prices were lower than the company's planning prices (US$35/bbl oil and US$2.35/mcf Henry Hub), which led to a US$148 million cash deficit for the quarter (US$435 million in cash flow from continuing operations minus US$583 million in upstream and midstream capex). We estimate the recent rebound in oil prices, if sustained, would enable Apache to generate cash surpluses in subsequent quarters and comfortably achieve cash-flow neutrality for the full year. But the company has refrained from locking in current price levels despite suggesting last quarter that it could initiate a hedge programme if the futures market improved.
