Range Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

FORT WORTH, Texas, July 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RANGE RESOURCES CORPORATION (NYSE:RRC) today announced its second quarter financial results.

Highlights –

  • Announced pending merger with Memorial Resource Development Corp.
  • Second quarter company production averaged 1,421 net Mmcfe per day, up 4% from the prior-year quarter, with Marcellus production averaging a record 1,379 net Mmcfe per day, up 16% from the prior-year quarter
  • Unit costs reduced by 8%, or $0.24 per mcfe, compared to prior-year quarter
  • Total debt at lowest level since May 2012
  • Completed the sale of central Oklahoma properties for $77.7 million

Commenting, Jeff Ventura, the Company’s CEO said, “Range continues to perform at a high level operationally. Our Marcellus assets continue to deliver excellent results, as drilling and completion activities become more efficient, and recoveries are increasing as we drill longer laterals. We are encouraged by the recent improvement in commodity prices, particularly natural gas and natural gas liquids. Range is well positioned to take advantage of an improving price environment with an industry-leading inventory of high-quality drilling opportunities, a diversified portfolio of transportation alternatives for our products, and an existing footprint of over 200 well pads in Appalachia. The existing pad inventory will allow Range to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for future development and, importantly, speed the pace of development when warranted, as much of the required infrastructure is already in place.

The proposed merger with Memorial is on track, with closing estimated to occur late in the third quarter. We look forward to integrating the Range and Memorial teams, combining two of the most prolific, high-quality natural gas plays in North America.”

Financial Discussion

Except for generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) reported amounts, specific expense categories exclude non-cash impairments, unrealized mark-to-market gain or loss on derivatives, non-cash stock compensation and other items shown separately on the attached tables. “Unit costs” as used in this release are composed of direct operating, transportation, gathering and compression, production and ad valorem taxes, general and administrative, interest and depletion, depreciation and amortization costs divided by production. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a definition of each of the non-GAAP financial measures and the tables that reconcile each of the non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Asset Sales

On May 20, 2016, Range closed on the sale of approximately 9,200 net acres with net production of 5 Mmcfe per day from 200 wells located in central Oklahoma for $77.7 million. Following the closing of this sale, the Company owns approximately 19,000 net acres in central Oklahoma. The retained acreage, which is primarily held by production, is in the northern extension of the STACK play and includes Osage and other reservoir targets. Drilling activity has increased near the area and the Company is monitoring industry activity.

Second Quarter 2016

GAAP revenues for the second quarter 2016 totaled $102 million (a 58% decrease compared to second quarter 2015). GAAP net cash provided from operating activities including changes in working capital was $82 million (a 48% decrease as compared to second quarter 2015) and GAAP earnings were a loss of $225 million ($1.35 loss per diluted share) versus a loss of $119 million ($0.71 per diluted share) in the prior-year quarter. Second quarter 2016 included a $163 million derivative loss due to increased commodity prices, compared to a $35 million loss in 2015 and deferred compensation plan expense of $26 million, due to the increase in Range’s stock price during the quarter, compared to a $7 million gain in the prior-year quarter.

Non-GAAP revenues for second quarter 2016 totaled $363 million (a 10% decrease compared to second quarter 2015), cash flow from operations before changes in working capital, a non-GAAP measure, was $93 million compared to $161 million in second quarter 2015. Adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates, a non-GAAP measure, was a loss of $23 million ($0.14 loss per diluted share) for the second quarter 2016 compared to earnings of $2.2 million ($0.01 per diluted share) in the prior-year quarter. The Company’s total unit costs decreased by $0.24 per mcfe, or 8%, compared to the prior-year quarter, as shown below:

Expenses 2Q 2016
(per mcfe)
2Q 2015
(per mcfe)
Increase

Depletion, depreciation amortization 0.95 1.22 (22%)
Total unit costs (a) $2.73 $2.97 $ (8%)

(a) Totals may not add due to rounding.

Second quarter 2016 natural gas, NGLs and oil price realizations (including the impact of cash-settled hedges and derivative settlements which correspond to analysts’ estimates) averaged $2.50 per mcfe, a 19% decrease from the prior-year quarter. Additional detail on commodity price realizations can be found in the Supplemental Tables provided on the Company’s website.

  • Production and realized prices, including hedging settlements, by each commodity for second quarter 2016 were: natural gas – 912 Mmcf per day ($2.52 per mcf), NGLs – 75,450 barrels per day ($11.57 per barrel) and crude oil and condensate – 9,336 barrels per day ($40.48 per barrel). Total second quarter production was 1,421 Mmcfe per day ($2.50 per mcfe).
  • The second quarter average natural gas price, before hedging settlements, was $1.50 per mcf as compared to $1.96 per mcf in the prior-year quarter. NYMEX natural gas financial hedges increased realizations $1.05 per mcf in the second quarter 2016. The average Company natural gas price differential including the impact of basis hedges for the second quarter improved to ($0.48) per mcf compared to ($0.66) per mcf in the prior-year quarter, as a result of increased capacity to better markets.
  • Total NGL pricing per barrel including ethane and processing expenses before hedging settlements improved to 24% of WTI ($10.70 per barrel) compared to 14% of WTI ($8.02 per barrel) in the prior-year quarter as a result of increased NGL capacity to better markets, mainly due to Mariner East. Hedging increased NGL prices by $0.88 per barrel in the second quarter.
  • Crude oil and condensate price realizations, before realized hedges, for the second quarter averaged $31.74 per barrel, or $13.58 below WTI, compared to $16.17 below WTI in the prior-year quarter. Hedging added $8.74 per barrel in the second quarter.

Capital Expenditures

Second quarter 2016 drilling expenditures of $120 million funded the drilling of 28 (26 net) wells. A 100% success rate was achieved. In addition, during the quarter, $3.5 million was incurred on acreage purchases, $6.4 million on exploration expense, and $0.2 million on gas gathering systems. Range is on target with its $495 million capital budget for 2016. The Company expects to average three rigs running for the second half of 2016.

Operational Discussion

Range has updated its investor presentation with second quarter financial and operational results. Please see www.rangeresources.com under the Investors tab, “Company Presentations” area, for the presentation entitled, “Company Presentation – July 26, 2016.”

Marcellus Shale

Production for the second quarter averaged 1,379 net Mmcfe per day, a 16% increase over the prior-year quarter. The Southern Marcellus Shale Division averaged 1,192 net Mmcfe per day during the quarter, a 24% increase over the prior-year quarter. The Northern Marcellus Shale Division averaged 188 net Mmcf per day during the quarter, a 19% decrease over the prior-year quarter.

The table below summarizes second quarter activity and the number of wells expected to be turned to sales for the remainder of 2016:

Area Wells to sales
First half 2016
Remaining
2016 Wells to sales
Planned Total
Wells to sales in 2016
Super-Rich 10 3 13
Wet 16 15 31
Dry - SW 32 17 49
Dry - NE 12 7 19
Total Marcellus/Utica 70 42 112

The Southern Marcellus Shale Division continues to drill and complete outstanding wells, with impressive EUR’s on both a total and normalized basis, with costs being driven lower. The examples below represent recent wells brought on line that continue to perform well.

  1. In the southwest dry area, a five well pad brought on line in April is expected to have an EUR of approximately 22 Bcf per well, or over 3 Bcf per 1,000 lateral feet, at a cost of approximately $5.3 million.
  2. In the wet area, a four well pad brought on line at the end of last year is now expected to have an EUR of approximately 28 Bcfe per well, or 4 Bcfe per 1,000 lateral feet. A well in this area is expected to cost approximately $5.8 million.
  3. In the super rich area, 2 pads with a total of 10 wells brought on line in the first quarter are expected to have an EUR of approximately 14 Bcfe per well, or 2.8 Bcfe per 1,000 feet, with a cost of approximately $4.8 million.

Operational efficiency gains continued in the second quarter. The division completed 1,067 stages, averaging over 7.8 stages per day per crew, which is a 23% improvement compared to the prior-year quarter. Also, Range drilled 6% more lateral feet per day per rig, with a 27% reduction in drilling cost per lateral foot, when compared to the prior-year quarter. Capital costs for surface facilities and equipment in 2016 are expected to be 23% lower than 2015 as a result of design improvements, reduced labor and equipment costs, plus redeployment of existing equipment. Logistical improvements in water handling have resulted in annual savings of over $18 million. These and other efficiencies have driven Range’s normalized (per 1,000 feet of lateral) well costs, including surface facility costs, to among the lowest of other Marcellus peers, as shown in the latest Company presentation.

Range’s current inventory of lightly drilled well pads now stands at over 200 pads with infrastructure in place that will significantly shorten cycle time. In addition, Range has now obtained permits for drilling 42 of the potential laterals on several of these pads.

With surface facilities construction complete, Range has recently brought on line its third dry gas Utica well in southwest Pennsylvania and is currently conducting flow tests. Early data continues to indicate this well is more productive compared to the Company’s first two Utica wells, and was drilled and completed with lower cost. While results from the Company’s dry Utica wells are encouraging, Range will continue to monitor results from its three wells, plus wells from other operators in the area, while focusing capital on its prolific Marcellus acreage position that has been de-risked by thousands of wells, some with up to 10 years of production history. Range has approximately 400,000 acres in southwest Pennsylvania which it considers prospective for Utica development.

Marcellus Shale Marketing and Transportation

Range continues to add capacity to markets outside of Appalachia. The Company will add 150,000 mcf per day of firm capacity on the Spectra Gulf Markets project, expected to be in-service during the fourth quarter of this year, and an additional 300,000 mcf per day on the Columbia Leach/Rayne Express project, expected to be in-service by the end of 2017. Both of these projects take Range gas to the Gulf Coast, where demand is increasing, resulting in an expected improvement in natural gas price realizations. With Mariner East now fully operational, Range is marketing propane globally out of Marcus Hook and realizing prices above Mont Belvieu. In addition, Range recently signed new condensate sales agreements which will improve condensate prices in the second half of 2016. With these marketing arrangements in place, we anticipate improved realized prices for all products.

Guidance

Production per day Guidance

Production for the entire 2016 year remains at the high-end of previous guidance to average 1,410 to 1,420 Mmcfe per day after all announced asset sales. Production for the third quarter of 2016 is expected to be approximately 1,430 Mmcfe per day with 32% to 35% liquids.

Natural Gas Liquids (including ethane): 23% - 25% of WTI
Oil/Condensate: WTI minus $12

Hedging Status

Range hedges portions of its expected future production volumes to increase the predictability of cash flow. Range currently has over 80% of its expected third and fourth quarter 2016 natural gas production hedged at a weighted average floor price of $3.22 per mcf. Range has over 30% of its expected 2017 gas production hedged at an average floor price of $2.94. Similarly, Range has hedged approximately 70% of its third and fourth quarter 2016 projected crude oil production at a floor price of $58.40 and approximately 60% of its composite NGL production. Please see Range’s detailed hedging schedule posted at the end of the financial tables below and on its website at www.rangeresources.com.

Range has hedged Marcellus and other basis differentials covering 64,125,000 Mmbtu per day for July 2016 through December 2017. The fair value of the basis hedges based upon future strip prices as of June 30, 2016 was a loss of $3.8 million.

Range has also hedged the premium spread between the Mont Belvieu propane index and the respective European and Asian propane market indexes on approximately 30% of anticipated LPG sales through December 2017. The fair value of these hedges based upon future strip prices as of June 30, 2016 was a gain of $4.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income or loss comparable to analysts’ estimates as set forth in this release represents income or loss before income taxes adjusted for certain non-cash items (detailed in the accompanying table) less income taxes. We believe adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates is calculated on the same basis as analysts’ estimates and that many investors use this published research in making investment decisions and evaluating operational trends of the Company and its performance relative to other oil and gas producing companies. Diluted earnings per share (adjusted) as set forth in this release represents adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates on a diluted per share basis. A table is included which reconciles income or loss to adjusted net income (loss) comparable to analysts’ estimates and diluted earnings per share (adjusted). On its website, the Company provides additional comparative information on prior periods along with non-GAAP revenue disclosures.

Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital (sometimes referred to as “adjusted cash flow”) as defined in this release represents net cash provided from operating activities before changes in working capital and exploration expense adjusted for certain non-cash compensation items. Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital is widely accepted by the investment community as a financial indicator of an oil and gas company’s ability to generate cash to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service debt. Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital is also useful because it is widely used by professional research analysts in valuing, comparing, rating and providing investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. In turn, many investors use this published research in making investment decisions. Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities, investing, or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows, or as a measure of liquidity. A table is included which reconciles Net cash from operating activities to Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital as used in this release. On its website, the Company provides additional comparative information on prior periods for cash flow, cash margins and non-GAAP earnings as used in this release.

The cash prices realized for oil and natural gas production including the amounts realized on cash-settled derivatives and net of transportation, gathering and compression expense is a critical component in the Company’s performance tracked by investors and professional research analysts in valuing, comparing, rating and providing investment recommendations and forecasts of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. In turn, many investors use this published research in making investment decisions. Due to the GAAP disclosures of various derivative transactions and third-party transportation, gathering and compression expense, such information is now reported in various lines of the statement of operations. The Company believes that it is important to furnish a table reflecting the details of the various components of each statement of operations line to better inform the reader of the details of each amount and provide a summary of the realized cash-settled amounts and third-party transportation, gathering and compression expense which historically were reported as natural gas, NGLs and oil sales. This information is intended to bridge the gap between various readers’ understanding and fully disclose the information needed.

The Company discloses in this release the detailed components of many of the single-line items shown in the GAAP financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The Company believes that it is important to furnish this detail of the various components comprising each line of the Statements of Operations to better inform the reader of the details of each amount, the changes between periods and the effect on its financial results.
