Upstream US Independents company benchmarking 2018

Report summary

The US Independents have been successful at controlling costs and deleveraging. But the market continues to incentivise aggressive production growth. Operators who have guided for high-growth targets have delivered better share price growth compared with their growth-challenged peers. The task ahead will be to balance growth delivery with capital discipline and manage project-specific risks, especially in tight oil. We review the performance and outlook for the US Independents peer group using the Corporate Benchmarking Tool (CBT). Companies included in the report are: Anadarko, Apache, Chesapeake, ConocoPhillips, Continental, Devon, Encana, EOG, Hess, Marathon Oil, Murphy Oil, Newfield, Noble Energy, Occidental, Pioneer, Range and Southwestern.
