SWN’s 2Q17 revenue performance
In its most recent earnings release in August 2017, SWN reported revenues of ~$811 million, higher than the Wall Street analyst consensus for revenues of ~$806 million. For 2Q17, SWN reported natural gas revenues of ~$471 million, natural gas liquids revenues of ~$37 million, and crude oil revenues of ~$23 million.
SWN also reported marketing revenues of ~$250 million and natural gas gathering revenues of ~$30 million. This means that almost 58% of SWN’s revenues came from natural gas sales.
Despite the year-over-year decrease in Southwestern Energy’s 2Q17 production, much higher realized prices for natural gas (BOIL)(UGAZ)(DGAZ), natural gas liquids, and crude oil (SCO) (USL) impacted SWN’s revenues positively.
Southwestern Energy’s natural gas average realized price increased to $2.35 per MMBtu (million British thermal units) in 2Q17 from $1.21 per MMBtu in 2Q16. We will study SWN’s 3Q17 production estimates in the next part.
