HOUSTON, Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc. (Nasdaq:CRZO) today announced the Company's financial results for the second quarter of 2014 and provided an operational update, which included the following highlights:

  • Record Oil Production of 18,440 Bbls/d, 57% above the second quarter of 2013
  • Record Total Production of 33,319 Boe/d, 18% above the second quarter of 2013
  • Record Oil Revenue of $166.0 million, representing 86% of total revenue, and 57% above the second quarter of 2013
  • Record Total Revenue of $193.5 million, 44% above the second quarter of 2013
  • Income From Continuing Operations of $3.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, and Adjusted Net Income (as defined below) of $32.4 million, or $0.70 per diluted share
  • Record Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) of $144.2 million, 40% above the second quarter of 2013
  • Confirms 330 ft. downspacing in the Eagle Ford Shale
  • Raising 2014 crude oil production growth target to 57%

Carrizo reported second quarter of 2014 income from continuing operations of $3.2 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share as compared to income from continuing operations of $35.8 million, or $0.89 and $0.88 per basic and diluted share, respectively, in the second quarter of 2013. The income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 includes certain items typically excluded from published estimates by the investment community. Adjusted net income, which excludes the impact of these items as described in the statements of income included below, for the second quarter of 2014 was $32.4 million, or $0.72 and $0.70 per basic and diluted share, respectively, compared to $24.0 million, or $0.60 and $0.59 per basic and diluted share, respectively, in the second quarter of 2013.

For the second quarter of 2014, adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, and depletion and amortization, as described in the statements of income included below ("Adjusted EBITDA"), was $144.2 million, an increase of 40% from the prior year quarter.

Production volumes during the second quarter of 2014 were 3,032 MBoe, or 33,319 Boe/d, an increase of 18% versus the second quarter of 2013 and 27% versus the prior quarter. The year-over-year production growth was driven by strong results in each of the Company's operating regions, which more than offset the sale of the Company's remaining natural-gas-weighted Barnett Shale properties during the fourth quarter of 2013. Oil production during the second quarter of 2014 averaged 18,440 Bbls/d, while natural gas and NGL production averaged 89,308 Mcfe/d. Second quarter of 2014 production exceeded the high end of Company guidance due to strong performance from the Company's Eagle Ford Shale, Niobrara, and Marcellus Shale assets.

Drilling and completion capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2014 were $198.1 million. Approximately 78% of the second quarter drilling and completion spending was in the Eagle Ford Shale. Drilling and completion capital expenditures are expected to be lower in the third and fourth quarters as the Company is only running one frac crew in the Eagle Ford Shale for the remainder of the year, compared with two frac crews for much of the second quarter. Land and seismic expenditures during the quarter were $73.4 million. Carrizo is increasing its full-year 2014 drilling and completion capital expenditure guidance range by $25.0 million to $690.0-$710.0 million. The additional capital is expected to fund increased drilling and completion activity, as well as increased spending on facilities, in the Eagle Ford Shale. Carrizo is revising its 2014 land and seismic capital expenditure guidance to $130.0 million from $90.0 million. The incremental capital is expected to fund continued bolt-on acreage acquisitions in the Eagle Ford Shale and Utica Shale. Additionally, the Company began to build an acreage position in the Delaware Basin during the second quarter.

Due primarily to the continued strong performance from the Company's Eagle Ford Shale assets, Carrizo is increasing its 2014 oil production guidance to a range of 18,100-18,300 Bbls/d from 17,500-18,200 Bbls/d. Using the midpoints of these ranges, the Company's 2014 oil production growth guidance increases to 57% from 54%. For natural gas and NGLs, Carrizo is maintaining its 2014 guidance of 67-75 MMcfe/d. For the third quarter of 2014, Carrizo expects oil production to be 19,100-19,500 Bbls/d and natural gas and NGL production to be 55-65 MMcfe/d. The decrease in expected natural gas and NGL production for the third quarter is due to a significant amount of forecast voluntary production curtailments in response to the depressed local market prices in Appalachia. A summary of Carrizo's production and cost guidance is provided in the attached tables.

S.P. "Chip" Johnson, IV, Carrizo's President and CEO, commented on the results, "This was another record quarter for Carrizo as we once again delivered crude oil production growth that exceeded our forecast. And impressively, we have now more than offset the gas-weighted Barnett Shale volumes we sold late last year, which accounted for more than 25% of our third quarter 2013 production, with oil-weighted production. Additionally, once we complete our remaining inventory of Marcellus Shale wells, the increase in our natural gas productive capacity alone should more than offset the impact of the Barnett divestiture."

"We continue to expand our Eagle Ford Shale inventory through additional acreage acquisitions and tighter spacing. Since the last update, we have added approximately 4,000 net bolt-on acres to our Eagle Ford position, bringing us to about 9,500 net acres for the year. On the downspacing front, we are pleased with the results from our initial 330 ft. tests, and have adjusted our development plan to include this spacing going forward. As a result, we've added another four years to our drilling inventory in the Eagle Ford Shale, bringing it to more than 15 years based on current activity levels."

"During the second quarter, we established a foothold in the condensate window of the Delaware Basin Wolfcamp trend. We have been studying the play for over two years and think that recent improvements in industry completion techniques have materially enhanced returns. We are looking for ways to expand our position and expect to drill or participate in at least one well in the next six months. We hope that this can become another growth driver for the Company."

Operational Update

In the Eagle Ford Shale, Carrizo drilled 18 gross (13.5 net) operated wells during the second quarter, and completed 26 gross (20.8 net) wells. Crude oil production from the play rose to more than 16,100 Bbls/d for the quarter, an increase of 26% versus the prior quarter. At the end of the quarter, Carrizo had 21 gross (15.7 net) operated Eagle Ford Shale wells waiting on completion, equating to net crude oil production potential of approximately 5,900 Bbls/d. Carrizo is operating three rigs in the Eagle Ford Shale and currently expects to drill approximately 67 gross (54 net) operated wells in the play during 2014.

During the second quarter, Carrizo began testing its initial 330 ft. downspacing wells in the Eagle Ford Shale. The test is located on the Company's Irvin Ranch lease and consists of four wells from a single pad, with two laterals to the north and two to the south. Carrizo holds a 75% working interest in these wells. The wells were brought online in late May and have recorded average 30-day and 60-day oil rates of 528 Bbls/d and 494 Bbls/d, respectively. This is consistent with the Company's target initial production rate of approximately 500 Bbls/d under choke management. Importantly, the pressure drawdown seen in the 330 ft. spaced wells is consistent with what was seen in the other Irvin Ranch wells. As a result of these well results, Carrizo has adjusted its development plan to include 330 ft. spacing vs. 500 ft. previously on its properties that are near or on trend with Irvin Ranch. This increases the Company's drilling inventory to approximately 815 net potential Eagle Ford Shale locations. At current activity levels, this gives Carrizo an Eagle Ford Shale inventory of more than 15 years. The Company plans to test 330 ft. spacing on its remaining properties to determine if downspacing is needed to efficiently drain the reservoir in these areas. Downspacing to 330 ft. in these areas would add another approximately 105 net locations to the Company's inventory. To date, Carrizo has not seen any interference between the 330 ft. spaced wells. However, in order to be conservative, it is assuming some interference occurs later in the productive life of 330 ft. spaced wells, which is consistent with preliminary recommendations from its independent reserve engineer. In the 330 ft. downspaced areas, this would result in a per-well type curve EUR approximately 10% below the EUR of wells drilled at 500 ft. spacing. Given this, we are adjusting our weighted-average type curve EUR to 498 MBoe. As the EUR impact would be at the tail end of the productive life, the type curve IRRs in the 330 ft. downspaced areas are not materially impacted.

Carrizo has continued to add bolt-on acres to its position in the Eagle Ford Shale, with the added acreage located within the volatile oil window primarily in LaSalle County. The Company's position in the trend now stands at approximately 71,700 net acres. Carrizo continues to actively lease acreage in the core volatile oil window of the Eagle Ford Shale.

In the Utica Shale, Carrizo's condensate production during the quarter averaged approximately 116 Bbls/d. The Company's first well, the Rector 1H in Guernsey County, Ohio, produced for only about a month during the quarter before being shut-in for pressure build-up tests. During this time, the well produced at a gross rate of approximately 440 Bbls/d of condensate on a restricted choke. Carrizo has a 95% working interest in the Rector 1H well.

Carrizo received the spudder rig for its Utica Shale program late in the second quarter, and is currently drilling the top hole on the third well of its 2014 drilling program. The Company expects to receive the larger rig later this month, which will initially move to the Brown 1H, located in northern Guernsey County, to drill the horizontal section. Carrizo is the operator of the Brown 1H well, and holds a 50% working interest in it. Carrizo currently plans to keep the spudder and larger rig active for the remainder of the year, which should allow it to drill 7 gross (5 net) operated Utica Shale wells during 2014.

The Company continues to evaluate midstream solutions for its Utica production. Negotiations have been delayed due to the inclusion of condensate gathering and stabilization discussions, but the Company hopes to have a deal signed in the near future. This should allow the Company to have some midstream infrastructure in place by the end of the first quarter of 2015.

Carrizo continues to expand its position in the condensate window of the Utica Shale play through bolt-on acquisitions. The Company's acreage position in the play now stands at approximately 26,300 net acres. The additional bolt-on acreage is located primarily in Guernsey County.

In the Niobrara Formation, Carrizo drilled 8 gross (3.3 net) operated wells during the second quarter, and completed 12 gross (4.5 net) wells. Crude oil production from the Niobrara was approximately 2,200 Bbls/d for the quarter, an increase of 15% versus the prior quarter. Carrizo is operating one rig in the Niobrara and currently expects to drill 32 gross (11 net) operated wells during 2014.

During the second quarter, Carrizo began production from its first operated multiple-geologic-bench downspacing pilot in the Niobrara formation. As previously disclosed, the pilot consisted of eight wells in the Company's Bringelson Ranch area in Weld County, Colorado, which tested both B-A-B and B-B-B lateral orientations spaced 300 ft. apart, equating to 40-acre spacing. The Company remains pleased with the performance of the wells, as the average 30-day rate of 588 Boe/d (90% oil) continued to exceed the Area 1 type curve. The three A bench wells averaged 654 Boe/d (89% oil) while the five B bench wells averaged 548 Boe/d (91% oil). The Area 1 type curve assumes a 30-day rate of 503 Boe/d. Carrizo operates the Bringelson Ranch wells with an approximate 29% working interest.

In the Marcellus Shale, Carrizo completed 9 gross (2.4 net) operated wells during the second quarter. Natural gas production from the Marcellus was 59.4 MMcf/d in the second quarter, up from 44.5 MMcf/d in the prior quarter. Local market prices in Appalachia remain challenging, and the Company continues to utilize voluntary production curtailments when prices get extremely low, which has been factored into its production guidance. Additionally, the Company was able to defer the completion of 6 gross wells until next year. As a result, Carrizo does not currently plan to complete any additional Marcellus Shale wells during 2014.

During the second quarter, Carrizo began to build a leasehold position in the Delaware Basin. To date, the Company has acquired more than 17,000 net undeveloped acres in Culberson and Reeves counties, Texas, that are prospective for the Wolfcamp Shale.

Financial Position and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2014, Carrizo had total debt outstanding of $1,025.4 million and cash and cash equivalents of $8.6 million. Net Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA (based on the trailing four quarters) was 2.1x for the second quarter. The borrowing base on the Company's senior credit facility is currently $570 million, and as of July 31, 2014, Carrizo had $103 million drawn on the facility.

Hedging Activity

Carrizo currently has hedges in place for over 75% of estimated crude oil production for the remainder of 2014 (based on the midpoint of guidance). For the balance of the year, the Company has hedged approximately 15,000 Bbls/d of crude oil at a weighted average floor price of $92.22/Bbl (comprised of 11,500 Bbls/d of swaps at an average price of $93.55/Bbl and 3,500 Bbls/d of collars at an average floor price of $87.85/Bbl).

Carrizo also has hedges in place for over 90% of estimated natural gas and NGL production for the remainder of 2014 (based on the midpoint of guidance). For the balance of the year, the Company has swaps on approximately 58,690 MMBtu/d at a weighted average price of $4.20/MMBtu.
