Marathon Oil Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

Continued Strong Multi-Basin Execution Drives Returns and Production Beat; Full-Year Guidance Raised with Budget Unchanged

HOUSTON, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO) today reported second quarter 2018 net income of $96 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, which includes the impact of certain items not typically represented in analysts' earnings estimates and that would otherwise affect comparability of results. Adjusted net income was $126 million, or $0.15 per diluted share. Net operating cash flow was $767 million, or $849 million before changes in working capital.

Highlights

  • Total production averaged 419,000 net boed; U.S. production averaged 298,000 net boed, both up 5% (ex-Libya) compared to the prior quarter
  • U.S. resource plays averaged 285,000 net boed, up 6% compared to the prior quarter with all four basins growing sequentially
  • Eagle Ford production increased to 106,000 net boed, up 2% sequentially; 39 wells to sales had an average 30-day initial production (IP) rate of 1,880 boed (66% oil)
  • Bakken production averaged 82,000 net boed, up 11% sequentially, with oil production up 14%; 21 wells to sales averaged a 30-day IP rate of 2,700 boed (77% oil); Winona and Mamie wells in West Myrmidon set new basin Three Forks records on 30-day IP oil rate; three new Elk Creek wells averaged a 30-day IP rate of 2,530 boed (72% oil)
  • Oklahoma production averaged 80,000 net boed, up 7% sequentially; four-well Lightner SCOOP Woodford infill pad delivered an average 30-day IP rate of 2,620 boed (48% oil) on equivalent eight-well per section spacing
  • Northern Delaware production averaged 17,000 net boed; six new wells from the Cypress infill pilot averaged 1,235 boed IP 30 (52% oil) and the three-well Fiddle Fee pad averaged 1,745 boed IP 30 (66% oil); executed agreement for water gathering and disposal in Eddy County
  • In July, closed on the sale of three non-core, non-operated conventional assets in the U.S., including two in the Gulf of Mexico, further concentrating and simplifying the portfolio
  • Raised both 2018 total Company oil and boe production guidance and 2018 resource play oil and boe production guidance, with no change to 2018 development capital budget

"Another quarter of outstanding operational execution across our multi-basin U.S. portfolio has driven better than expected production in the resource plays, and has enabled us to raise our annual resource play production guidance for the second consecutive quarter with no increase to our development capital budget. Our Eagle Ford and Bakken asset teams continue to set the standard for performance in their respective basins, while our Oklahoma and Northern Delaware assets progress important multi-well infill tests," said Marathon Oil president and CEO Lee Tillman. "Additionally, we continue to benefit from about half of our oil production for the quarter being linked to LLS or Brent, and the flexibility afforded by our differentiated position in the four best U.S. unconventional plays. In the second half of the year, we plan to drill our first exploration well in the emerging Louisiana Austin Chalk play as we continue our pursuit of low entry cost opportunities to enhance full-cycle returns. Our focus remains on execution and capital discipline, and we generated more than $250 million in organic free cash flow in the second quarter. We remain on track to deliver a strong rate of change in our key financial performance metrics highlighted by an expected annual increase of more than 70 percent in corporate cash return on invested capital (CROIC) at current strip prices."

Development Capital
Second quarter development capital expenditures, before working capital, were $608 million. Net cash provided by continuing operations was $767 million during second quarter 2018, or $849 million before changes in working capital. The Company's 2018 development capital budget remains at $2.3 billion with capital in the second half of the year moderating primarily due to reduced working interest consistent with planned well mix in the resource plays.

Resource Capture
Outside of the development capital budget, second quarter resource play leasing and exploration (REx) capital expenditures peaked for the year at $154 million. First half of the year spend of $248 million was more than fully funded through the divestiture proceeds received in first quarter 2018. Year-to-date, the Company has leased approximately 240,000 net acres in the emerging Louisiana Austin Chalk play. Though episodic in nature, the Company anticipates REx capital expenditures of $100 to $150 million in the second half of 2018 for continued leasing, exploration drilling and 3D seismic acquisition.

Production Guidance
Marathon Oil expects third quarter 2018 U.S. production to average 290,000 to 300,000 net barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), which is adjusted for the sale of non-core, non-operated conventional U.S. assets that produced 4,200 net boed in the second quarter and averaged 5,000 net boed in the first half of the year (76% oil). The Company expects third quarter 2018 U.S. resource play production to average 280,000 to 290,000 net boed, consistent with planned timing of wells to sales and with sequential growth resuming in the fourth quarter. Third quarter 2018 International production is expected to average 105,000 to 115,000 net boed, lower than second quarter due to planned maintenance activity in E.G. and the U.K.

The Company increased its annual 2018 total Company production guidance to 400,000 to 415,000 net boed, up from 390,000 to 410,000 net boed. The Company also raised its guidance for annual resource play oil and barrel of oil equivalent (boe) growth to 28 - 32 percent, up from 25 - 30 percent previously.

U.S. E&P
U.S. E&P production averaged 298,000 net boed for second quarter 2018, up 5 percent compared to the prior quarter and up 36 percent from the year-ago quarter on a divestiture-adjusted basis. Second quarter production from the U.S. resource plays was 285,000 net boed, up from 269,000 net boed in the prior quarter. Second quarter U.S. E&P unit production costs were down just over 20 cents sequentially to $5.66 per boe and are expected to continue to moderate through 2018 as the Company accesses additional infrastructure in the Northern Delaware and as production volumes grow in the second half of the year. In July, the Company closed on the sales of its non-operated Gunflint and Troika assets in the Gulf of Mexico and a CO2 flood in West Texas. Combined, these assets produced 4,200 net boed in the second quarter, and averaged 5,000 net boed in the first half of the year (76% oil).

EAGLE FORD: Marathon Oil's Eagle Ford production averaged 106,000 net boed in the second quarter, compared to 104,000 net boed in the prior quarter. The Company brought 39 gross Company-operated wells to sales with an average 30-day IP rate of 1,880 boed (66% oil). The Company continued to deliver impressive results from core Karnes County, where the six-well Karnes City NE pad had an average 30-day IP rate of 2,330 boed (72% oil). The five-well Guajillo 10 South pad achieved an average 30-day IP rate of 1,660 boed (75% oil), further confirming the extension of core acreage into Atascosa County. The Eagle Ford asset generated significant free cash flow in the quarter through a combination of well performance and oil realizations above WTI due to strong LLS-based pricing.

BAKKEN: In second quarter 2018, Marathon Oil's Bakken production averaged 82,000 net boed, up 11 percent compared to 74,000 net boed in the prior quarter. Oil production was up 14 percent sequentially. The Company brought 21 gross Company-operated wells to sales with an average 30-day IP rate of 2,700 boed (77% oil). Of these, 12 were in core Hector with an average 30-day IP rate of 2,285 boed (79% oil). As the Company continues its efforts to uplift performance outside the Myrmidon and Hector core, enhanced completion techniques were applied for the first time in Elk Creek with the three-well Bear Den pad achieving an impressive average 30-day IP rate of 2,530 boed (72% oil). In West Myrmidon, the Winona and the Mamie Three Forks wells set two new basin records delivering 30-day IP oil rates of 3,095 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and 3,090 bopd, respectively. Marathon Oil remains in full compliance with state gas capture requirements, and anticipates no impact to forward development plans.

OKLAHOMA: Marathon Oil's Oklahoma production averaged 80,000 net boed during second quarter 2018, up 7 percent from 75,000 net boed in the prior quarter. In the SCOOP, the Company brought on the four-well Woodford Lightner infill pad on 660-foot spacing across a half section, with an average 30-day IP rate of 2,620 boed (48% oil, 6,840-foot average lateral length). The pad's IP rate and oil cut both exceeded expectations. In the STACK, four Meramec wells in the Siegrist infill pad achieved an average 30-day IP rate of 900 boed (71% oil, 4,505-foot average lateral length), meeting expectations with strong oil rates. Marathon Oil also signed a firm transportation agreement for 100 million cubic feet per day beginning in fourth quarter 2018 to protect near-term natural gas production and bridge to the start-up of the Midship Pipeline on which Marathon Oil is an anchor shipper.

NORTHERN DELAWARE: Marathon Oil's Northern Delaware production increased to an average of 17,000 net boed in second quarter 2018, up 6 percent from the prior quarter. The Company brought 13 gross Company-operated wells to sales in the Malaga area in Eddy County, a mix of development and appraisal wells with an average 30-day IP rate of 1,130 boed (61% oil). The Cypress infill pilot, which targeted the Bone Spring, Upper Wolfcamp, and Lower Wolfcamp horizons, reported an average 30-day IP rate of 1,235 boed (52% oil; 60% oil excluding Lower Wolfcamp well). The three-well Fiddle Fee pad in the Bone Spring and Upper Wolfcamp reported an average 30-day IP rate of 1,745 boed (66% oil). Drilling efficiencies enabled the Company to reduce its rig count from five to four in the second quarter, without changing its full-year guidance of 50 to 55 gross operated wells to sales. In June, the Company executed an agreement with San Mateo for water gathering and disposal in Eddy County, which will significantly reduce unit production costs. The Company continues to benefit from its Midland-Cushing basis swaps, with open positions that include 10,000 bopd hedged for the second half of 2018 and all of 2019, and 15,000 bopd hedged for full-year 2020, all at a discount of less than $1 to WTI. Additionally, the Company is in the process of finalizing a new term oil sales agreement in both Eddy and Lea counties.

International E&P
International E&P production averaged 121,000 net boed for second quarter 2018, up 6 percent compared to 114,000 net boed in the prior quarter excluding Libya. The increase reflects the completion of planned turnaround activity in E.G. in the first quarter. Second quarter 2018 International E&P unit production costs averaged $4.71 per boe, compared to $5.37 per boe in the prior quarter excluding Libya, due to the completion of the scheduled turnaround in E.G. in first quarter and fewer U.K. liftings in second quarter. The Company has signed agreements for the sales of its interest in the non-operated Sarsang and Atrush blocks in Kurdistan.

Corporate
Total liquidity as of June 30 was approximately $5.1 billion, which consisted of $1.7 billion in cash and cash equivalents and an undrawn revolving credit facility of $3.4 billion.

Net income and adjusted net income in second quarter 2018 were negatively impacted by an increase in accrued expense of $14 million for stock-based performance units tied to the Company's improved total shareholder return, and $15 million in dry well and seismic expense.

The adjustments to net income for second quarter 2018 totaled $23 million before tax, primarily due to proved property impairments of $34 million associated with International and domestic conventional assets and an unrealized loss of $45 million on commodity derivatives, partially offset by a $50 million gain on sale that was primarily associated with acreage trading activity.

The Company maintained open hedges for the remainder of 2018, and during the second quarter increased its full-year 2019 open hedge positions to an average of 50,000 bopd at a weighted average floor price of $56.01 and a weighted average ceiling price of $71.74, using three-way collars.

A slide deck and Quarterly Investor Packet will be posted to the Company's website following this release today, Aug. 1. On Thursday, Aug. 2, at 10:00 a.m. ET, the Company will conduct a question and answer webcast/call, which will include forward-looking information. The live webcast, replay and all related materials will be available at https://www.marathonoil.com/Investors.

Definitions
CROIC - Cash return on invested capital; calculated by taking cash flow (operating cash flow before working capital + net interest after tax) divided by (average stockholder's equity + average net debt).

Organic free cash flow - Operating cash flow before working capital (excluding exploration costs other than well costs), less development capital expenditures, less dividends, plus other.

Non-GAAP Measures
In analyzing and planning for its business, Marathon Oil supplements its use of GAAP financial measures with non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income (loss), adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations, adjusted net income (loss) per share, adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations per share, net cash provided by continuing operations before changes in working capital, CROIC and organic free cash flow because the Company believes this information is useful to investors to help evaluate the Company's financial performance between periods and to compare the Company's performance to certain competitors. Management also uses net cash provided by continuing operations before changes in working capital to demonstrate the Company's ability to internally fund capital expenditures, pay dividends and service debt. The Company considers adjusted net income (loss), adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations, adjusted net income (loss) per share and adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations per share as another way to meaningfully represent the Company's operational performance for the period presented; consequently, it excludes the impact of mark-to-market accounting, impairment charges, dispositions, pension settlements, and other items that could be considered "non-operating" or "non-core" in nature. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the business that, when viewed with GAAP results may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the business and are a useful tool to help management and investors make informed decisions about Marathon Oil's financial and operating performance. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures can be found in our investor package on our website at www.marathonoil.com and in the tables below. Marathon Oil strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.
