With all the record-breaking production, earnings, free cash flow gains, debt reductions, and overall giddiness spilling out of Q2, you’d almost think a parade is in order. After rhapsodizing yesterday on the remarkable return of natural gas, Reese Energy Consulting today is sharing the latest news from E&P Matador Resources. Based in Dallas, Matador operates in the Delaware, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, and Cotton Valley plays—but it’s the Delaware that’s stolen the show so far this year with 24 wells turned to sales since March. In April alone, Matador brought 13 wells online that have produced 2.3 MMBOE in just three months. The company expects to turn to sales another 24 wells by Q4. Now, for the sexy numbers. Oil and gas revenues broke an all-time record in the second quarter at $412.1 million, compared with $118.8 million in the same period last year. Earnings increased 32% from Q1 at $261 million—a 143% gain over June 2020. Oil volumes hit 8.482 MMBOE vs 2020’s 6.670 MMBOE. Finally, Matador in Q2 paid down another $100 million in debt while socking away $156.3 million in free cash flow. Bring on the floats.
