murphy oil corp (MUQ) Key Developments

Murphy Oil Corporation Reports Earnings and Production Results for the Second Quarter of 2015; Provides Production Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2015, Reaffirms Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Full Year 2015 and Revises Production Guidance for the Full Year 2015

Murphy Oil Corporation reported earnings and production results for the second quarter of 2015. The company reported net loss of $73.8 million or $0.42 per diluted share in the 2015 second quarter, down from net income of $129.4 million or $0.72 per diluted share in the second quarter a year ago. The net loss from continuing operations in the 2015 second quarter was $89.0 million or $0.51 per diluted share compared to a profit of $142.7 million or $0.79 per diluted share earned in the second quarter a year ago. Adjusted earnings, which excludes both the results of discontinued operations and certain other items that affect comparability of results between periods, in the second quarter of 2015 showed a loss of $83.1 million or $0.48 per diluted share. This was a decrease of $244.8 million or $1.38 per diluted share compared to the prior year's quarter primarily attributed to significantly lower realized sales prices in the current quarter compared to a year ago. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for continuing operations totaled $321.9 million in the second quarter 2015, down from $792.3 million in the second quarter of 2014. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and exploration expenses (EBITDAX) totaled $386.9 million in the second quarter 2015, down from $927.1 million in the second quarter of 2014. Both EBITDA and EBITDAX were greatly impacted by the drop in WTI and Brent oil prices by 44% between the comparative quarterly periods. Second quarter production averaged 201,952 boepd, ahead of its guidance of 197,000 boepd, primarily attributed to new well performance in the Eagle Ford Shale and risked startup of the Medusa expansion project. For the third quarter of 2015, the company expects production to be 200,000 boepd. The company has increased its full year production guidance to a range of 200,000 to 208,000 boepd. Capital expenditures remain unchanged from previous guidance and are currently forecast to be $2.3 billion for 2015.
