The Only Constant Is…

If you missed his quote this morning, Halliburton’s CEO predicted “For the first time in a long time, we will see a buyer looking for a barrel of oil, as opposed to a barrel of oil looking for a buyer.” Just one more reminder that none of us choose a career in the oil and gas industry because nothing much ever happens.

Continental Dives In

Continental Dives In

Was it only a matter of time before Okla. City-based Continental Resources jumped into the Permian pool? Founded in 1967, the company until now has kept its E&P activity squarely in the Bakken and Anadarko, along with a small acquisition earlier this year in the Powder River Basin. But some deals may be just too good to pass up, especially when the free cash-flow fire is as hot as oil prices. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news from Continental, which came off its 3Q earnings report to announce a $3.25 billion all-cash deal with the Permian’s largest operator, Pioneer Resources. The acquisition includes drilling rights across 92,000 net acres in the Delaware and 50 MBOEPD in production, allowing Continental to generate an extra half-billion dollars in annual free cash flow next year at current prices. Now, by all accounts it’s difficult to separate this company from the man who created it—billionaire wildcatter Harold Hamm who retired his CEO role last year to chair the board. His self-described “heart of a geologist” led him to the Bakken in 1995 where he introduced the combination of horizontal drilling and fracking. Now it’s leading him to the Permian. And while analysts have expressed uncertainty over the company’s latest move into a basin it doesn’t know, we’ll happily put our bucks on Continental.

Diversified Finds a New Home in the Anadarko

While late-year M&A activity in the Permian and Eagle Ford is in full swing, the acquisitions dance on our home turf is also getting a twirl. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the first of two recent oil and gas deals in Okla., where drilling has steadily ramped up as of late with 41 rigs at work—an increase of 241.7% over the same time last year. First up is Okla. City-based Tapstone Energy, the state’s largest leaseholder and mineral rights owner operating primarily in the Anadarko Basin. And that’s exactly where Birmingham, Ala.-based Diversified Energy is looking to…well, diversify its natural gas production. For 20 years, Diversified has operated solely in the Marcellus and Utica, producing gas, NGLs, and oil from 67,000 conventional and unconventional wells. Now, with a new expansion strategy in place to repeat its Appalachian business model in the Mid-Continent, Diversified will purchase Tapstone for $419 million. The deal includes 750,000 acres of mineral rights, 3,900 wells, and 25 MBOED in production with 80% in gas.
