Oasis Petroleum Inc. Announces Quarter and Year Ending December 31, 2019 Earnings and Provides an Operational Update and 2020 Outlook

HOUSTON, Feb. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Oasis Petroleum Inc. (Nasdaq: OAS) ("Oasis" or the "Company") today announced financial and operational results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019 and provided its 2020 outlook.

"Fourth quarter results demonstrate continued execution and progress towards reducing leverage," said Thomas B. Nusz, Oasis' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Volumes exceeded expectations while spending was lower, driven by a relentless focus on efficiency. A combination of free cash flow and asset sales led Oasis to reduce E&P debt by $188 million over the course of 2019. I'm proud of the Oasis team for rising to the challenge and driving significant cost savings and efficiencies in the back half of 2019. These efforts positioned our 2020 plan to be more capital efficient, especially when we factor in lower well costs and improved cycle times in the Delaware Basin. Oasis is in a compelling position to grow modestly while generating free cash flow and continuing to pay down debt."

2019 Highlights

  • Produced 87.4 MBoepd in 4Q19, 2% above the upper range of November guidance, with oil volumes at 60.1 MBopd, at the top end of guidance.
  • Delivered net cash provided by operating activities of $892.9 million for YE19 and $253.0 million for 4Q19 and Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $1,039.5 million for YE19 and $264.0 million for 4Q19.
  • LOE per Boe averaged $6.95 per Boe in 2019, approximately 7% below original guidance.
  • Crude oil differentials were strong over 2019 averaging $1.68 off of NYMEX WTI.
  • E&P CapEx(2) was $598.0 million for 2019, 4-5% below the $620-640 million plan.

2020 Plan
Oasis continues to drive towards moderate growth, free cash generation and debt reduction. The Company constructed its 2020 plan based on being free cash flow positive at $50 NYMEX WTI. Total consolidated CapEx is expected to range between $685 and $715 million with E&P and Other CapEx expected to range between $575 and $595 million. Oasis is directing approximately 55-65% of its capital to the Williston Basin and approximately 35-45% to the Delaware Basin. The Company expects approximately 80-90% of its E&P and Other CapEx to be invested in drilling and completions activities, including:

  • Completing 45 to 55 gross operated wells with a working interest of approximately 66% in the Williston Basin.
  • Completing 20 to 25 gross operated wells with a working interest of approximately 88% in the Delaware Basin.
  • 1Q20 CapEx is expected to approximate 30% of full-year guidance.

Other highlights of the 2020 plan include:

  • 1Q20 total volumes are expected to approximate 78 to 79 MBoepd with oil cut to approximate 68-69%.
  • Expect mid-single-digit year-over-year volume growth (Boe and oil) from 4Q19 to 4Q20.
  • Expect to be E&P free cash flow positive assuming average NYMEX WTI prices above $50/barrel.
  • 85-90% of 1H20 oil production hedged with an average floor of $55.46.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

E&P Cash G&A Reconciliation

E&P Cash G&A is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines E&P Cash G&A as the total general and administrative expenses included in the Company's exploration and production segment less non-cash equity-based compensation expenses and other non-cash charges included in the Company's exploration and production segment. E&P Cash G&A is not a measure of general and administrative expenses as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of general and administrative expenses included in the Company's exploration and production segment to the non-GAAP financial measure of E&P Cash G&A for the periods presented:

In 2019, the Company incurred a charge to establish a loss accrual of $20.0 million, which the Company believes is the estimable amount of loss that could potentially be incurred from its pending legal proceedings based upon currently available information.

Cash MT&G Reconciliation

Cash MT&G is defined as the total marketing, transportation and gathering expenses less non-cash valuation charges on pipeline imbalances. Cash MT&G is not a measure of marketing, transportation and gathering expenses as determined by GAAP. Management believes that the presentation of Cash MT&G provides useful additional information to investors and analysts to assess the cash costs incurred to get its commodities to market without regard for the change in value of its pipeline imbalances, which vary monthly based on commodity prices.

Cash Interest is not a measure of interest expense as determined by GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, exploration expenses and other similar non-cash or non-recurring charges. The Company defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Oasis less Cash Interest and CapEx, excluding capitalized interest. Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are not measures of net income (loss) or cash flows as determined by GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share Reconciliations

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis as net income (loss) after adjusting for (1) the impact of certain non-cash and non-recurring items, including non-cash changes in the fair value of derivative instruments, impairment and other similar non-cash and non-recurring charges, (2) the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests and (3) the non-cash and non-recurring items' impact on taxes based on the Company's effective tax rate applicable to those adjusting items, excluding net income attributable to non-controlling interests, in the same period. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis is not a measure of net income (loss) as determined by GAAP. The Company defines Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share is not a measure of diluted earnings (loss) per share as determined by GAAP.

The following table presents reconciliations of the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) attributable to Oasis to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Oasis and the GAAP financial measure of diluted earnings (loss) attributable to Oasis per share to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Attributable to Oasis Per Share for the periods presented:

(1)

Cash settlements represent the cumulative gains and losses on the Company's derivative instruments for the periods presented and do not include a recovery of costs that were paid to acquire or modify the derivative instruments that were settled.

(2)

In 2019, the Company incurred a charge to establish a loss accrual of $20.0 million, which the Company believes is the estimable amount of loss that could potentially be incurred from its pending legal proceedings based upon currently available information.

(3)

The tax impact is computed utilizing the Company's effective tax rate applicable to the adjustments for certain non-cash and non-recurring items. The tax impact was not computed for the tax reform rate change adjustments.

(4)

The Company included 322,000 and 3,379,000 of unvested stock awards for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, in computing Adjusted Diluted Earnings Attributable to Oasis Per Share due to the dilutive effect under the treasury stock method. No unvested stock awards were included in computing Adjusted Diluted Loss Attributable to Oasis Per Share for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 because the effect was anti-dilutive due to the Company incurring an Adjusted Net Loss Attributable to Oasis.
