  • Parsley is increasing guidance for full-year 2017 and 4Q17 daily net production, reflecting broadly stronger well performance and higher NGL volumes.
  • The Company is reducing its estimated full-year 2017 oil percentage to account for its 2Q17 production mix, as discussed above, and for increasing contributions from Wolfcamp C wells.
  • Parsley is also reducing its expected completion count in the Southern Delaware Basin to reflect extended project cycle times earlier this year.
  • Estimated full-year 2017 capital expenditures are unchanged, as fewer expected completions are offset by incremental drilling activity associated with early rig delivery. All other guidance remains unchanged, as well.
