Anadarko Petroleum Corp NYSE: $APC

Market Reaction Pre Market $57.33 +0.88 (+1.56%)


  • APC achieved record onshore oil sales volumes of 175K bbl/day of oil during Q3, up 37% Y/Y on a divestiture adjusted basis, and margins of $33.68/boe jumped 58% from a year ago.
  • Q3 total volumes rose 9% Y/Y to 682K boe/day, including a 70% increase to a record 70K boe/day in the Delaware Basin and a monthly record oil rate of more than 140K boe/day in August from the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, where it achieved record production at the Caesar/Tonga development.
  • APC capital spending for the quarter totaled $1.4B, exceeding its previous guidance of $1.05B-$1.25B, but the company expects annual capex to come in unchanged at $4.5B-$4.8B.

What to watch with APC is the debt load, cost and oil and gas revenue. In the first six months of the year, Anadarko has spent more cash on capital expenditures than it generated from its operations. The obvious risk is if oil prices fall significantly, Anadarko may have to lower CapEx. That would impact dividend payments. 

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation will host an investor conference call on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018, at 8 a.m. CDT (9 a.m. EDT) to discuss its third-quarter 2018 financial and operating results.

Earnings will be released after close of market on Tuesday, Oct. 30. The full text of the release will be available on the company’s website at Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018.
