 Murphy Oil beats by $0.03, misses on revs 
  • Reports Q4 (Dec) earnings of $0.08 per share, excluding non-recurring items, $0.03 better than the Capital IQ Consensus of $0.05; revenues rose 12.5% year/year to $541.58 mln vs the $552.54 mln Capital IQ Consensus.
    • Murphy's preliminary year-end 2017 proved reserves are 698 million barrels of oil equivalent (Mmboe) an increase from 685 Mmboe at year-end 2016. The change in year-over-year reserves is mainly attributed to additions from onshore assets, primarily oil-weighted Eagle Ford Shale and Tupper Montney natural gas.

  • Murphy is planning 2018 capital expenditures to be $1,056 million which assumes an oil price of $50 to $55 per barrel WTI and a Henry Hub natural gas price of $2.90 to $3.00 per Mcf.
  • Production for the first quarter 2018 is estimated to be in the range of 164 to 168 Mboepd with full year 2018 production to be in the range of 166 to 170 Mboepd. North America onshore unconventional production represents 57 percent of full year guidance.
