Pioneer Natural Resources Company Research Report

On November 27, 2013, Pioneer Natural Resources Company (Pioneer) announced
that severe winter weather in Texas has significantly impacted the Company's
production and drilling operations in the Spraberry/Wolfcamp, Eagle Ford
Shale, and Barnett Shale Combo plays. Compared to other areas, the Company
informed, the Spraberry/Wolfcamp area has been hit hard as heavy icing and low
temperatures have resulted in extensive power outages, facilities freeze-ups,
trucking curtailments, and limited access to production and drilling
facilities. Pioneer expects an extensive recovery period along with a time of
few weeks to determine the full impact of the event in a few weeks, and will
accordingly update its Q4 2013 guidance. The Full Research Report on Pioneer
Natural Resources Company - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings

financial results. In Q3 2013, the Company's revenue totaled $305.2 million,

million in Q3 2012. "The Company is delivering on its commitments to
strengthen its financial position, complete a monetization transaction and

Refinery," said Hank Kuchta, CEO and President of Northern Tier Energy.

work as well as certain discretionary projects we previously announced, which

results. For Q3 2013, the Company reported net sales of $1.9 billion, compared

was $86.0 million, compared to $318.6 million in Q3 2012. "Our third quarter
results were significantly impacted by the unprecedented downtime associated
with the outage of the Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCCU) at the Coffeyville
refinery due to a failure of a major piece of equipment in the unit. In
addition, crude differentials tightened in late August and crack spreads and
product basis weakened during the quarter, further impacting our results,"
said Jack Lipinski, CEO of CVR Refining. "The Coffeyville refinery resumed
full operations on Sept. 11, which was a few days earlier than anticipated,
and sustained processing rates averaging approximately 115,000 barrels per day
(bpd) for the remainder of the quarter." The Full Research Report on CVR
