Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE: MUR) today announced its financial and operating results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021, including net income attributable to Murphy of $168 million, or $1.08 net income per diluted share. Adjusted net income, which excludes discontinued operations and other one-off items, was $62 million, or $0.40 net income per diluted share.

Unless otherwise noted, the financial and operating highlights and metrics discussed in this commentary exclude noncontrolling interest. 1

Highlights for the fourth quarter include:

Highlights for full year 2021 include:

  • Produced 158 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day with 87 thousand barrels of oil per day, which was 6 percent higher than the original oil volume guidance
  • Maintained capital discipline with full year accrued capital expenditures of $671 million, excluding reimbursed King’s Quay expenditures
  • Generated $496 million of free cash flow2, with the majority used to repay long-term debt, fund long-standing dividend and increase the cash balance

Subsequent to the fourth quarter:

  • Increased quarterly dividend by 20 percent to $0.15 per share

“I am proud of the accomplishments our organization achieved in 2021. We produced more oil than originally planned, with less capital, while also lowering our total debt by 17 percent. We had our best year on record for protecting the environment. Also, we have been able to maintain the schedule on our major Gulf of Mexico projects despite the continued headwinds of a pandemic and significant hurricane,” said Roger W. Jenkins, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With a great year of execution in 2021 and significant incremental cash flow coming this year, we can now increase our long-standing dividend while simultaneously continuing our debt reduction strategy.”

FOURTH QUARTER 2021 RESULTS

The company recorded net income, attributable to Murphy, of $168 million, or $1.08 net income per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2021. This includes a realized after-tax loss of $113 million and an unrealized after-tax gain on crude oil derivative contracts of $92 million. Adjusted net income, which excludes both the results of discontinued operations and certain other items that affect comparability of results between periods, was $62 million, or $0.40 net income per diluted share for the same period. The adjusted net income from continuing operations adjusts for the following after-tax items: $92 million non-cash mark-to-market gain on derivatives, $33 million non-cash mark-to-market gain on contingent consideration and $24 million impairment of non-core assets. Details for fourth quarter results can be found in the attached schedules.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) from continuing operations attributable to Murphy was $319 million, or $22.88 per barrel of oil equivalent (BOE) sold. Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortization and exploration expenses (EBITDAX) from continuing operations attributable to Murphy was $338 million, or $24.26 per BOE sold. Details for fourth quarter EBITDA and EBITDAX reconciliations can be found in the attached schedules.

Fourth quarter production was within the guidance range and averaged 150 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (MBOEPD) with 53 percent oil and 60 percent liquids. Details for fourth quarter results can be found in the attached schedules.

FULL YEAR 2021 RESULTS

The company recorded a net loss, attributable to Murphy, of $74 million, or a $0.48 net loss per diluted share, for the full year 2021. This includes a realized after-tax loss of $327 million and an unrealized after-tax loss of $89 million on crude oil derivative contracts. The company reported adjusted income, which excludes both the results of discontinued operations and certain other items that affect comparability of results between periods, of $200 million, or $1.29 net income per diluted share. This includes after-tax adjustments of $152 million in impairments, $89 million non-cash mark-to-market loss on derivative instruments and $50 million non-cash mark-to-market loss on contingent consideration. Details for full year 2021 results can be found in the attached schedules.

Production for the full year averaged 158 MBOEPD and consisted of 55 percent oil and 62 percent liquids volumes. Details for 2021 production can be found in the attached tables.

FINANCIAL POSITION

Murphy had approximately $2.1 billion of liquidity as of December 31, 2021, comprised of the $1.6 billion undrawn senior unsecured credit facility and $521 million of cash and cash equivalents, inclusive of noncontrolling interest (NCI).

On December 2, 2021, Murphy redeemed $150 million of its 6.875 percent senior notes due 2024 for a redemption price of 101.719 percent. Total debt of $2.46 billion as of the end of fourth quarter 2021 consists of long-term, fixed-rate notes with a weighted average maturity of 7.5 years and a weighted average coupon of 6.2 percent.

Overall, Murphy achieved its long-term debt reduction goal of $300 million for the second half of 2021, as well as reduced total debt by $530 million, or 17 percent, since year-end 2020.

“I am pleased with our strong operational execution and disciplined spending in 2021, which allowed us to achieve our goal of repaying $300 million in long-term debt while also building our cash position due to higher realized oil prices than originally budgeted. This multi-faceted success has positioned Murphy for ongoing debt reductions and a dividend increase in 2022,” said Jenkins.

YEAR-END 2021 PROVED RESERVES

Murphy’s preliminary year-end 2021 proved reserves were 699 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOE), consisting of 39 percent oil and 45 percent liquids. Total proved reserves were up from year-end 2020 with a total reserve replacement of 102 percent.

The company maintained a solid reserve life index of 12 years with 58 percent proved developed reserves.

OPERATIONS SUMMARY

Onshore

The onshore business produced approximately 86 MBOEPD, comprised of 39 percent liquids volumes in the fourth quarter.

Eagle Ford Shale – Murphy produced an average 33 MBOEPD with 69 percent oil volumes in the fourth quarter. Four Catarina wells were brought online as planned, with the two Upper Eagle Ford Shale wells and one Austin Chalk well performing in-line with expectations, while the one Lower Eagle Ford Shale well significantly exceeded its type curve.

Tupper Montney – In the fourth quarter, natural gas production averaged 263 million cubic feet per day (MMCFD). No wells were brought online during the quarter.

Kaybob Duvernay – Production averaged 7 MBOEPD with 70 percent liquids volumes during the fourth quarter.

Offshore

Excluding noncontrolling interest, the offshore business produced 64 MBOEPD for the fourth quarter, comprised of 81 percent oil.

Gulf of Mexico – Production averaged 61 MBOEPD, consisting of 80 percent oil during the quarter. Murphy completed its repairs following Hurricane Ida, with 1.5 MBOEPD remaining offline through the majority of first quarter 2022 as a third-party completes downstream repairs.

Murphy’s major projects continue to advance on schedule, with the Khaleesi, Mormont, Samurai project expected to produce first oil in the second quarter of 2022 through the King’s Quay floating production system. Murphy began completions work on the 7-well program in the fourth quarter, while the King’s Quay floating production system was transported to its final location in the Gulf of Mexico to prepare for first oil.

Canada – Production averaged 3 MBOEPD in the fourth quarter, comprised of 100 percent oil. The non-operated Terra Nova floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel was transported to Spain during the quarter to begin drydock work for the asset life extension project.

EXPLORATION

Gulf of Mexico – Participated in the Gulf of Mexico Federal Lease Sale 257 and was named apparent high bidder on three deepwater blocks.

Brazil – During the quarter, Murphy and its operated partner prepared to spud the Cutthroat-1 well in the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin.

COMMODITY HEDGES

Murphy employs commodity derivative instruments to manage certain risks associated with commodity price volatility and underpin capital returns associated with certain assets.

During the fourth quarter, Murphy added hedges to protect cash flow with the execution of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) costless collars. As a result, Murphy has a total 25 thousand barrels of oil per day (MBOPD) hedged for full year 2022 with a weighted average put price of $63.24 per barrel and weighted average call price of $75.20 per barrel.

The company also maintains 20 MBOPD of full-year 2022 production hedged with an average fixed price swap price of $44.88 per barrel.

Murphy continues its natural gas price risk protection with fixed price forward sales contracts for physical delivery at the AECO hub in Canada for calendar years 2022 through 2024. Details for the current hedge positions can be found in the attached schedules.

2022 CAPITAL EXPENDITURE AND PRODUCTION GUIDANCE

Murphy is planning 2022 capital expenditures (CAPEX) to be in the range of $840 million to $890 million with full year 2022 production to be in the range of 164 to 172 MBOEPD, comprised of approximately 52 percent oil and 57 percent total liquids volumes. Production for first quarter 2022 is estimated to be in the range of 136 to 142 MBOEPD with 53 percent oil volumes. This range is impacted by planned downtime, comprised of the following: 2.7 MBOEPD of operated offshore downtime, 2.6 MBOEPD of non-operated offshore downtime and 3 MBOEPD of onshore downtime. Both production and CAPEX guidance ranges exclude Gulf of Mexico noncontrolling interest (NCI).

“Our 2022 budget is higher than 2021, with capital designated toward finalizing key development projects in the Gulf of Mexico while maintaining oil volumes across the portfolio. In addition, we forecast an additional $300 million in long-term debt reduction assuming a $65 oil price in 2022, which will be increased with stronger oil prices. This plan also allows Murphy the ability to generate ample free cash flow in order to increase our quarterly dividend by 20 percent to $0.15 per diluted share for the first quarter 2022, as recently approved by our Board of Directors,” said Jenkins. “As we continue our plan to delever, we forecast generating additional free cash flow, which will give us optionality in returning cash to shareholders and supporting future exploration success.”

Murphy plans to spend approximately $330 million, or 38 percent, of 2022 capital to the Gulf of Mexico for development drilling and field development projects. This includes bringing the major Khaleesi, Mormont, Samurai project online with first oil scheduled to flow in the second quarter, as well as advancing the non-operated St. Malo waterflood project prior to its completion in 2023. Other plans include drilling an operated development well at Dalmatian with production scheduled to come online in 2023 and executing subsea tiebacks at non-operated Lucius.

Murphy has allocated $220 million, or 25 percent, of 2022 spending to the Eagle Ford Shale, which is $50 million higher than in 2021 due to increased drilling as a result of minimal uncompleted operated wells from 2021 activity. This includes $150 million for drilling 29 and bringing online 27 operated wells in the company’s Karnes and Catarina acreage, as well as drilling 23 and bringing online 32 non-operated wells in Karnes and Tilden acreage. The remaining $70 million of 2022 spending in this area is to support field development.

The company plans to spend 16 percent, or $140 million, of its 2022 capital plan in Canada onshore across the Tupper Montney and Kaybob Duvernay operations. Approximately $120 million of which is allocated to the Tupper Montney to drill 23 and bring online 20 operated wells. The remaining $20 million is primarily allocated to Kaybob Duvernay to bring online 3 operated wells in the Two Creeks area and for field development.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Presented above is a reconciliation of Net income (loss) to Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Murphy. Adjusted income (loss) excludes certain items that management believes affect the comparability of results between periods. Management believes this is important information to provide because it is used by management to evaluate the Company’s operational performance and trends between periods and relative to its industry competitors. Management also believes this information may be useful to investors and analysts to gain a better understanding of the Company’s financial results. Adjusted income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered a substitute for Net income (loss) as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Amounts shown above as reconciling items between Net income (loss) and Adjusted income (loss) are presented net of applicable income taxes based on the estimated statutory rate in the applicable tax jurisdiction. The pretax and income tax impacts for adjustments shown above are as follows by area of operations and exclude the share attributable to non-controlling interests.
