PV10 grows 44% as domestic proved reserves increase 8% to 576 MMBOE

HOUSTON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Newfield Exploration Company (NYSE: NFX) today announced that its proved reserves from continuing operations, December 31, 2013, were 576 MMBOE, an 8% increase over the prior year-end. Proved reserves at year-end 2013 associated with discontinued operations were 36 MMBOE, up 4% over year-end 2012.

Highlights from the Company's year-end 2013 proved reserves report include:

  • The pre-tax present value of domestic reserves (discounted at 10%) increased 44% year-over-year to $6.6 billion.
  • Domestic liquids reserves increased 26% year-over-year and represent 52% of domestic proved reserves.
  • Domestic proved developed reserves increased 15% year-over-year and 56% of domestic reserves are now proved developed.
  • Domestic reserves account for 94% of Newfield's total proved reserves.
  • The Company's domestic proved reserve life index is approximately 14 years.

Newfield invested approximately $1.6 billion in continuing operations in 2013, excluding $176 million in asset retirement obligations (ARO) and capitalized interest and overhead. Approximately $178 million was invested in acquisitions, land and seismic. The invested capital generated 87 MMBOE of "new" proved developed reserves. The full-year 2013 investments also generated 96 MMBOE of reserves associated with new proved undeveloped locations. Future development capital associated with the new undeveloped locations is approximately $1.6 billion.
