Key management comments in 3Q16 earnings

Tom Jorden, Cimarex’s CEO, said in the 3Q16 earnings release, “Our confidence in our well performance, Cimarex’s operational excellence and the quality of our assets remains steadfast. During the third quarter, we faced delays in our completion schedule, driven mostly by stimulations that were upsized beyond our original plans. These upsized stimulations lengthened the time required for our pad completions. The resultant production ramps slipped later into the fourth quarter, with peak production moving into first quarter 2017. We will enter 2017 with great momentum.”
