CEO Nusz provides a broad update

“We successfully grew production 31% while spending within cash flow on the E&P side of the business,” said Thomas B. Nusz, Oasis’ chairman and CEO. “We have supplemented our highly economic Williston Basin asset with the Forge acquisition located in the best part of the Delaware Basin. The depth of our core inventory increased organically in the Bakken and through our accretive Permian acquisition. We now have approximately 18 years of core and extended core inventory at our 2018 completion pace, which is economic at or below a $45 WTI oil price. In 2018 and 2019, we expect this capital efficient inventory to drive 15-20% production growth within cash flow on the E&P business.”

“Our well services and midstream businesses continue to be critical complements of our E&P operations. We introduced a second fracturing crew mid-year 2017 and successfully completed the IPO of OMP in September,” added Nusz. “Oasis funded its midstream capex in 2017 through OMP IPO proceeds of $132.1 million distributed to Oasis and capital spent at OMP of $105.6 million. Our midstream business has numerous highly attractive midstream investment opportunities in 2018, both in the Williston and potentially in the Delaware, all of which we expect will generate strong returns and will be built within 4-5x EBITDA multiples. Oasis plans to invest $235 million to $275 million in midstream capex in 2018, of which $72 million to $90 million will be funded by OMP in 2018 and the balance is expected to be funded over time through OMP via drops.”
