For the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $626.2 million compared with $1,029.3 million for the comparable 2015 period, primarily due to a decrease in net average realized prices, partially offset by a 2% increase in oil equivalent production, a 19% decrease in production and property taxes and a 6% decrease in lease operating expense.
