Callon Petroleum Company Provides Updated Production Guidance



NATCHEZ, Miss., Oct. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE: CPE) ("Callon" or the "Company") today announced a revised production guidance range of 22,450 to 22,600 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("Boe/d") for the third quarter of 2017, reduced from a previous guidance range of 23,000 to 25,000 Boe/d. Prior guidance of 77% oil production and estimates for expenses and operational capital expenditures for the third quarter are unchanged.

The revision is related in part to a heightened level of non-productive time during the completion of wells in the quarter caused by an approximate 20% reduction in average efficiency across all vendors involved with completion operations compared to the second quarter of 2017. As a result, cycle times for wells were extended and associated production contributions were delayed. Moreover, these increased cycle times also lengthened the amount of production downtime from offsetting wells that were shut-in for the completion operation and, hence, delayed the timing of returning wells to production. Over 2,500 net Boe/d of established production from offsetting wells was affected by completion operations in the quarter.

In addition, the short-term, derivative impacts of Hurricane Harvey included:

The Company also revised its full-year 2017 production guidance to a range of 22,000 to 23,000 Boe/d (78% oil). The updated estimates reflect:

Joe Gatto, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company commented, "The Callon team has been working closely with all of its oil service partners to work through the challenges presented by an increasingly robust level of industry activity. We firmly believe this is a transitory issue for us and our fellow operators, and we expect to return to previous levels of efficiency as we strengthen working relationships with new oil service personnel and additional capacity relieves near term service pressures. Importantly, we have experienced some level of improvement on recent pads and don't expect these short-term issues to have any meaningful impact on our operating plan and outlook for 2018. In addition, we have been pleased with the lease operating expense reductions we have achieved during the year due to our proactive investments in infrastructure that will benefit us even more over the long-term development of our asset base."
