Whiting Petroleum Corporation Announces First Quarter 2017 Financial and Operating Results

Q1 2017 Average Production of 117,360 BOE/d at High End of Guidance

Q1 2017 LOE, G&A and Interest Expense per BOE at Low End of Guidance

Q1 2017 DD&A per BOE and Oil Differentials below Low End of Guidance

Enhanced Completion Loomer Wells Tracking 1.5 MMBOE Type Curve

Raising 2017 Production Forecast and Lowering per BOE Cost Guidance for LOE, G&A, Interest Expense, DD&A and Oil and Gas Differentials
 
DENVER – April 26, 2017 – Whiting's (NYSE: WLL) production in the first quarter 2017 totaled 10.6 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOE), comprised of 84% crude oil/natural gas liquids (NGLs).  First quarter 2017 production averaged 117,360 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/d), at the high end of guidance.  Lease operating expense (LOE) benefited from a comprehensive water-handling plan and a maintenance program that has reduced well downtime across Whiting's properties.  Depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A) benefited from enhanced completions and the sale of the Company's North Dakota midstream assets.  Oil differentials benefited from the addition of new pipeline infrastructure in the Williston Basin.

James J. Volker, Whiting's Chairman, President and CEO, commented, "Whiting continued to deliver strong results while maintaining capital discipline.  Our first quarter production came in at the high end of guidance while capex was on target and LOE saw continuing improvements.  We have increased our 2017 production guidance and lowered cost guidance to reflect these strong results."
 


Mr. Volker continued, "Our enhanced completions continue to exceed expectations across our acreage position.  Our Loomer pad in McKenzie County, North Dakota is tracking a 1.5 MMBOE type curve.  Additionally, our bank lending group reaffirmed our $2.5 billion borrowing base with no change in terms."

Raising Production Guidance, Lowering Cost Guidance and Reiterating Capex Guidance
As detailed below, Whiting is raising its full-year production forecast to 45.2 to 46.2 MMBOE and reiterating its $1.1 billon full-year capital budget.  The Company is also lowering per BOE cost guidance for LOE, G&A, interest expense, DD&A and oil and gas differentials.
 
Reaffirmation of $2.5 Billion Borrowing Base
In April 2017, the lenders under Whiting's revolving credit agreement completed their semi-annual redetermination and reaffirmed a $2.5 billion borrowing base.  There were no changes to the covenants, interest rates, fees or repayment terms of the credit line, which matures in December 2019.

Operations Update

Whiting controls 732,819 gross (443,310 net) acres in the Williston Basin and 157,178 gross (132,432 net) acres at its Redtail Niobrara/Codell play in the DJ Basin.  In the first quarter 2017, total net production for the Company averaged 117,360 BOE/d.  The Bakken/Three Forks play in the Williston Basin averaged 109,125 BOE/d.  The Redtail Niobrara/Codell play in the DJ Basin averaged 7,635 BOE/d.

Loomer Wells Tracking 1.5 MMBOE Type Curve.  In February 2017, Whiting completed its three-well Loomer pad in McKenzie County, North Dakota.  The pad is located significantly west of Whiting's previously reported enhanced completions in McKenzie County.  It was completed with an average of 8.9 million pounds of sand per well.  On average, the wells are tracking a 1.5 MMBOE type curve.  This further validates the Company's belief that larger volume completions, which incorporate more frac stages and diverter agents, can be implemented across a significant portion of its acreage.  Whiting plans to complete its typical well this year with approximately 9.0 million pounds of sand and has several pilots scheduled to test significantly higher sand volumes per well.

Williston Basin Efficiency Gains Lower Lease Operating Expense.  In addition to an increase in capital efficiency through enhanced completions, Whiting believes it has achieved sustainable improvements in operating efficiency that lower LOE per BOE.  These include the expansion of water handling systems with lower cost contracts that have reduced saltwater disposal costs by approximately 10%.  Also, the Whiting team instituted a comprehensive well maintenance program that minimizes well downtime.  Since the beginning of 2015, Whiting has reduced downhole well failure rates by 22% through adopting a robust inspection plan and the use of advanced monitoring and simulation software to improve downhole configurations and material selection.

Redtail Completions on Schedule; Testing New Designs.  At its DJ Basin Redtail Field in Weld County, Colorado, Whiting targets the Niobrara "A", "B" and "C" zones and the Codell/Fort Hays formations.  In 2017, the Company plans to complete its entire 105 drilled uncompleted (DUC) well inventory.  Whiting currently has two completion crews conducting completion operations in this area. Its first two pads are anticipated to commence production in May and consist of an eight-well pad that will test 50 stages and 5 million pounds of sand per well and a seven-well pad that will test 50 stages and 8 million pounds of sand per well.  Consistent with its initial 2017 guidance, Whiting recently added its second completion crew to expedite DUC conversions.

A three-way collar is a combination of options: a sold call, a purchased put and a sold put.  The sold call establishes a maximum price (ceiling) we will receive for the volumes under contract. The purchased put establishes a minimum price (floor), unless the market price falls below the sold put (sub-floor), at which point the minimum price would be NYMEX plus the difference between the purchased put and the sold put strike price.

Adjusted Net Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Management believes it provides useful information to investors for analysis of Whiting's fundamental business on a recurring basis.  In addition, management believes that Adjusted Net Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders is widely used by professional research analysts and others in valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, and many investors use the published research of industry research analysts in making investment decisions.  Adjusted Net Loss Attributable for Common Shareholders should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or other income, cash flow or liquidity measures under U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Discretionary cash flow is a non-GAAP measure.  Discretionary cash flow is presented because management believes it provides useful information to investors for analysis of the Company's ability to internally fund acquisitions, exploration and development.  Discretionary cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or other income, cash flow or liquidity measures under U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
