Southwestern Energy corporate report

Southwestern Energy corporate report

Report summary

Southwestern's success will largely be determined by North American gas prices. 2015 was a particularly painful year as Henry Hub averaged US$2.61/mmbtu, 30% down year-on-year and its lowest level for 16 years. Transferring its cost cutting expertise to the Marcellus and driving down the cost of supply will be critical if the company is to spend within its means. In our corporate report, we review Southwestern's financial health, strategic options and operational outlook.
