Report summary

The US$2.5 billion deal consideration is below our base case valuation. And we believe our conservative base case assumptions (e.g. type well IP rates lower than EOG's latest results; no value attributed to 76% of the acreage) skews our valuation's risk profile to the upside. Deal metrics that exclude our modelling assumptions also suggest that the deal consideration was inexpensive: relative to comparable Permian deals in 2016 EOG paid 65% less on a dollar per acre basis for a Delaware position that is similar in quality and significantly higher in scalability.
