Continental Resources corporate - reported results analysis


Continental Resources corporate - reported results analysis

Report summary

Continental reported a net loss of US$198 million for the quarter, but operational results were strong. Production was up 4% on last quarter and 12% year-on-year. Better than expected performance across the portfolio, but particularly from enhanced completions in the Bakken, spurred an increase in production guidance for the year by 10,000 boe/d. But average 2016 production is still expected to be around 5% below 2015. Costs continue to trend down, with Bakken well costs down US$500,000/well during the quarter and STACK well costs down 5%. Capital guidance for the year remains the same at US$920 million. In 2016, Continental expects to be cash-flow neutral at US$37/bbl WTI. As the oil price recovers, the company's priority will be its balance sheet and reducing debt. Following this, it will begin to work down its inventory of drilled uncompleted (DUC) wells in the Bakken. Prices would need to stabilize at US60/bbl before it would consider adding back rigs.
