Peer comparison

In comparison, peers Continental Resources (CLR), Newfield Exploration (NFX), and Concho Resources (CXO) saw production mixes of 56.0% oil, 42.0% oil, and 61.0% oil, respectively.

BBG’s total production, on the other hand, has risen from 3Q14 levels but has fallen since its 3Q15 levels. BBG attributes this fall to non-core asset sales in the Denver-Julesburg (or DJ) Basin and the Uintah Basin.
