Newfield Exploration corporate report

Newfield Exploration corporate report

Report summary

Retrenchment onshore US has left Newfield with a portfolio centred around a number of oil-rich, onshore US assets, including a strong position in the SCOOP and the STACK plays in the Anadarko Basin. The success of these assets has been the main driver behind a turnaround in market sentiment. Unlike many of its peers, Newfield's share price has remained stable since the oil price crash. In 2015, the company's financial position has benefited greatly from hedging, but in 2016 and 2017 hedge protection starts to roll off. If prices remain low in 2016, Newfield has indicated it will cut capital spend further. Successful execution in the SCOOP and STACK plays, which now account for over half the company's remaining NPV, 10, will be key if Newfield is to maintain previous levels of growth as the oil price recovers.
