Key management comments
Tim Leach, Concho’s CEO, said in the company’s 4Q16 earnings release, “Concho had an exceptional year. At the start of 2016 our production growth guidance was flat to down 5% over 2015. Over the course of the year we improved productivity per well, decreased cash costs and strengthened our balance sheet. As a result, we were able to increase production by 5% while spending within cash flow.”
Leach continued, “We remain focused on executing a disciplined capital program and enhancing the impact of each dollar we deploy. We continue to benefit from our economies of scale as we run the largest drilling program in the Permian and are uniquely positioned to generate differentiated growth within cash flow.”
