Increased cash flows from operations to $145.9 million, balancing operating cash flows with capital expenditures
Increased Adjusted EBITDA to $160.6 million, up 23% from the third quarter of 2017
Improved drilling efficiency approximately 25%, reducing average days to drill a normalized 10,000-foot horizontal well to a Company record of 8.6 days from 11.4 days in third-quarter 2017
"With Laredo balancing operating cash flow and capital expenditures in the third quarter of 2018, as forecasted in our 2018 budget, we similarly plan to manage activity levels in 2019 to minimize any outspend," commented Randy A. Foutch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We intend to continue exercising this discipline in the future and invest capital with a focus on returns and growth on a debt-adjusted per share basis."
"During the past 18 months, Laredo has worked to implement a development plan that maximizes the long-term value of our leasehold through high-density drilling. We have executed six packages of wells designed to co-develop multiple landing points in our Upper and Middle Wolfcamp formations at a density of 24 to 32 wells per drilling spacing unit and have another three high-density packages in process. The results of these high-density packages have successfully demonstrated that this development plan can increase the total value of our leasehold, albeit at lower per well value than lower-density development. As we seek to balance rate of return and capital efficiency with overall value, while minimizing our outspend, we are beginning to widen our well spacing and develop packages at a lower density."
