Marathon Oil’s production trend

Marathon Oil’s quarterly production volumes started to decline in 4Q14. In 2Q15 and 1Q16, it saw a steep decline in its production volumes, mainly due to reduced capital spending in response to lower crude oil (SCO) and natural gas (UNG) prices.

Marathon Oil’s 2Q17 total production is slightly higher by less than a percentage point when compared with 2Q16 total production of 388.0 Mboepd. Sequentially, Marathon Oil’s 2Q17 total production is ~2.0% higher than total production in 1Q17 of 383.0 Mboepd. According to MRO’s press release, it attributed company-wide sequential production growth to much stronger production growth of ~11.0% from the Oklahoma Resource Basin.

MRO’s peer Occidental Petroleum (OXY) reported total production of 601.0 Mboepd, which is ~1.0% lower than production of 609.0 Mboepd in 2Q16.
