CA$375 Million Bolt-on Deal to Expand Crescent Point12/19/2022
On December 9, Crescent Point Energy Corp. announced a purchase and sale agreement to develop its core Kaybob Duvernay assets, which will bolt on production, the midstream infrastructure and technical data. With the deal, the company has committed more than US $1 billion to the play.
Crescent Point, the Alberta-based company, is purchasing almost 65,000 net acres from Paramount Resources Ltd. for CA $375 (US $274 million) cash. The assets estimate more than 4,000 boe/d, 50% liquids, and include a gas plant, associated pipelines, water infrastructure, and seismic data. The acquired asset’s production consists of 35% condensate, 15% NGL, and 50% shale gas.
The deal adds 135 net drilling locations that are adjacent to the company’s existing position. The company anticipates funding the purchases through its existing credit facility with an expected close in February 2023.
The company entered the liquids-rich play in February 2021 after deciding to purchase Shell’s position in the Kaybob Duvernay play for CA $900 million (US $709 million). In the third quarter of 2022, Crescent Point added a CA $87 million (US $64 million) bolt-on in the Kaybob.
Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. analyst Matt Murphy said the package primarily includes undeveloped land and inventory that will bolster the company’s Duvernay inventory. The company increased its 2023 production guide to 138,000 boe/d to 142,000 boe/d with its capital spend guidance unchanged.
Crescent Point keeps on generating strong full-cycle returns from the Kaybob Duvernay assets, which are top quartiles within its overall portfolio. Through this acquisition, the company is raising its drilling inventory in the play to over 20 years, based on current production. Moreover, its land position will grow up to about 400,000 net acres.
Crescent Point considers expanding its Kaybob Duvernay asset to more than 55,000 boe/d within its five-year plan from roughly 35,000 boe/d in 2022. According to the company’s development program, a second rig will be added in the Kaybob Duvernay in 2024.
Including base production with an estimated net present estimate of almost $200 million at current strip commodity prices, the purchase adds an attractive ESG profile, consistent with the existing Kaybob Duvernay assets, including low emissions intensity and minimal asset retirement obligations.
Crescent Point admits that it is now drilling its seventh pad in the play and anticipates starting its sixth fully operated pad on-stream in early 2023. Its fourth and fifth fully operated multi-well pads were recently brought on-stream and are creating strong initial production results that are in line with or ahead of its internal type wells.
According to the company, average IP rates for the fourth and fifth pads were almost 785 boe/d per well (IP90) (75% liquids) and about 950 boe/d per well (IP30) (65% liquids). Additionally, the drilling days have also been decreased to between 11 to 13 days per well on its recent pads, a 40% decline since entering the play.

NOG Grows Its Acreage Position in Delaware
According to the company’s press release on December 19, Northern Oil and Gas Inc. (NOG) closed its announced deal with a private seller of non-operated interests in the Northern Delaware Basin for $131.6 million in cash. The acquisition was announced with a $13 million deposit in October and is the third Permian Basin acquisition since August, adding to NOG’s $400 million of Permian Basin acquisitions in 2022. The assets of 2,100 net acres are primarily operated by a private company Mewbourne Oil Co., with production anticipated to total almost 2,500 boe/d in 2023. Also, Coterra Energy Inc. and Permian Resource Corp. are operators of the assets. The assets contain high-quality, low breakeven development that is leveraged to some of NOG’s top operating partners, as our investors have come to expect.
Global oil supply and demand saw notable changes in April 2023. Liquids demand declined by 0.7 MMb/d to 99.9 MMb/d, with gains in China and Europe offset by reduced demand in Japan and the Middle East. OPEC 10 production remained stable at 29.5 MMb/d, while Saudi Arabia increased output by 0.3 MMb/d. Non-OPEC production declined slightly, Russian production dropped further, and US shale production remained steady. Combined production in Iran, Venezuela, and Libya remained unchanged. Commercial inventories increased, and OPEC+ implemented production cuts. Economic sentiment remains uncertain amid rising global inflation.
ONEOK Inc. and Magellan Midstream Partners LP have announced a merger agreement that will result in the formation of a formidable midstream company headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The deal will bring together their respective assets and expertise, resulting in a powerful entity boasting an extensive network of approximately 25,000 miles of pipelines primarily focused on transporting liquids.
