For 2017, Encana plans to spend $1.4 billion–$1.8 billion in capital expenditure. This represents a midpoint increase of ~33% when compared with 2016 projected capital expenditure of ~$1.2 billion. From 4Q16 to 4Q17, Encana expects production from its core four assets to grow in a range of 15%–20%.

Encana’s outlook for 2018

For 2018, Encana expects total annual production of over 400 Mboe (thousand barrel of oil equivalent) per day, while remaining within cash flow. From 4Q17 to 4Q18, Encana expects production from its core four assets to grow by more than 30%.

Other oil and gas producers

Due to rising crude oil and natural gas prices, recently many S&P 500 (SPY) upstream companies like Southwestern Energy (SWN), Devon Energy (DVN), and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) have also ramped up their full-year activity plans for 2016.
