FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RANGE RESOURCES CORPORATION (NYSE: RRC) today announced its fourth quarter 2023 financial results and plans for 2024.

Full-Year 2023 Highlights –

  • Cash flow from operating activities of $978 million

  • Cash flow from operations, before working capital changes, of $1.1 billion

  • Reduced net debt by $292 million, paid $77 million in dividends, and repurchased $19 million of shares

  • Net production averaged 2,139 Mmcfe per day, approximately 69% natural gas

  • All-in capital spending of $614 million, or $0.79 per mcfe

  • Proved reserves of 18.1 Tcfe with positive performance revisions

  • Increased hedge positions for 2024 and 2025 to approximately 55% and 25% of natural gas production with weighted-average floors of $3.70 and $4.11 per MMBtu, respectively

  • Net Debt to EBITDAX of 1.3x (Non-GAAP) at year-end 2023

Commenting on the 2023 results and 2024 plans, Dennis Degner, the Company’s CEO said, “Range had a successful year – operating safely and efficiently, while generating free cash flow despite lower natural gas prices. Range’s 2023 free cash flow was allocated towards debt reduction and shareholder returns, while also building operational flexibility into our program. With the strongest balance sheet in company history, consistent operational performance, and a low capital reinvestment rate, we are targeting resilient free cash flow in 2024 and beyond. As demand for domestic and international natural gas and NGLs continues to increase in coming years, we believe Range is well-positioned on the low-end of the cost curve with a globally competitive emissions intensity and a high-return, long-life inventory of de-risked wells, measured in decades.”

2024 Capital and Production Guidance

Range’s 2024 all-in capital budget is expected to be $620 to $670 million, which consists of:

  • Approximately $575 million of all-in maintenance capital including land and facilities,

  • $30 - $45 million drilling and completion capital that adds to year-end 2024 well-in-process inventory,

  • Up to $30 million on targeted acreage which increases planned lateral lengths and future inventory, and

  • $15 - $20 million in water infrastructure/other, lowering future water-related costs

Range’s development plan for 2024 will target holding production flat for the year at approximately 2.12 – 2.16 Bcfe per day. For the year, Range plans to run two drilling rigs and one frac crew. As a result of operational efficiencies captured in 2023, this level of activity will result in Range building in-process well inventory during 2024, as was done in 2023. This increased inventory of wells that have been drilled and/or completed, increases operational and capital flexibility for future years. Like last year, there is approximately $30 to $45 million included in the 2024 capital plan for the associated well inventory additions. Separately, up to $30 million is planned for investment in non-maintenance acreage that increases lateral lengths and adds incremental inventory to Range’s year-end total of 28 million high-quality, undrilled lateral feet. Additionally, $15 to $20 million is planned for infrastructure and other investments primarily associated with water infrastructure expansions that will allow for more efficient water logistics, thereby lowering future drilling and completion costs and lease operating expense.

The table below summarizes 2023 activity and expected 2024 plans regarding the number of wells to sales in each area. To maintain current production levels, Range will turn to sales approximately 650,000 lateral feet in a year. Five wells that were planned for early 2024 were turned to sales in late 2023 because of faster drilling and completion times, though Range remained within the original 2023 capital guidance.

Financial Discussion

Except for generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) reported amounts, specific expense categories exclude non-cash impairments, unrealized mark-to-market adjustment on derivatives, stock compensation and other items shown separately on the attached tables. “Unit costs” as used in this release are composed of direct operating, transportation, gathering, processing and compression, taxes other than income, general and administrative, interest and depletion, depreciation and amortization costs divided by production. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a definition of each of the non-GAAP financial measures and the tables that reconcile each of the non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Financial Position

During the fourth quarter, Range purchased 315,000 shares at an average price of approximately $29.75 per share. As of year-end, Range had approximately $1.1 billion of availability under the current share repurchase program.

During 2023, Range reduced net debt by $292 million, representing the Company’s sixth consecutive year of debt reduction. At year-end, Range’s net debt was approximately $1.58 billion, consisting of $1.79 billion of senior notes and $212 million in cash. On a trailing twelve-month basis, Range’s leverage ratio, a non-GAAP metric, defined as Net-Debt-to-EBITDAX was approximately 1.3x.

In fourth quarter 2023, Range realized a total of $8.0 million in contingent derivative settlement gains related to an asset divestiture completed in 2020. Range expects to receive these cash proceeds in the first half of 2024.

Capital Expenditures

Fourth quarter 2023 drilling and completions expenditures were $118.3 million and $16.7 million was invested in acreage and gathering facilities. Total 2023 capital budget expenditures were $614 million, including $568 million on drilling and completion, and a combined $46 million on acreage, gas gathering systems and other investments.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Results

Revenues for fourth quarter 2023 totaled $941 million, net cash provided from operating activities (including changes in working capital) was $226 million, and net income was $310 million ($1.27 per diluted share).  Fourth quarter earnings results include a $291 million mark-to-market derivative gain due to decreases in commodity prices.

Non-GAAP revenues for fourth quarter 2023 totaled $715 million, and cash flow from operations before changes in working capital, a non-GAAP measure, was $300 million.  Adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates, a non-GAAP measure, was $153 million ($0.63 per diluted share) in fourth quarter 2023.

a) SEC benchmark prices adjusted for energy content, quality and basis differentials were $2.20 per mcf and $68.32 per barrel of crude oil.
b) NYMEX 10-year strip prices adjusted for energy content, quality and basis differentials realized an average gas price differential of ($0.44) and an average realized oil differential of ($10.67) per barrel, which equate to $3.17 per mcf and $52.82 per barrel over the life of the reserves.


Year-end 2023 reserves included 6.6 Tcfe of proved undeveloped reserves from approximately 3.1 million lateral feet scheduled to be developed within the next five years with an expected development cost of $0.40 per mcfe. Future development costs included in the year-end 2023 reserve report utilized estimates consistent with 2024 expected drilling and completion costs. Beyond the five-year reserve calculation window, Range has approximately 25 million undrilled lateral feet of high-quality Marcellus and millions of undrilled lateral feet in the Utica and Upper Devonian horizons. Range also has a network of more than 250 existing well pads that provide the opportunity to develop future wells while utilizing existing roads, pads and infrastructure.

Guidance - 2024

Capital & Production Guidance

Range is targeting a maintenance program in 2024, holding production approximately flat at 2.12 – 2.16 Bcfe per day, with over 30% attributed to liquids production. Range’s 2024 all-in capital budget is expected to be $620 to $670 million, which consists of:

  • $575 million of all-in maintenance capital including land and facilities,

  • $30 - $45 million drilling and completion capital that adds to year-end 2024 well-in-process inventory,

  • Up to $30 million on targeted acreage which increases lateral lengths and future inventory, and

  • $15 - $20 million in water infrastructure/other, lowering future water-related costs

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates as set forth in this release represents income or loss from operations before income taxes adjusted for certain non-cash items (detailed in the accompanying table) less income taxes. We believe adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates is calculated on the same basis as analysts’ estimates and that many investors use this published research in making investment decisions and evaluating operational trends of the Company and its performance relative to other oil and gas producing companies. Diluted earnings per share (adjusted) as set forth in this release represents adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates on a diluted per share basis. A table is included which reconciles income or loss from operations to adjusted net income comparable to analysts’ estimates and diluted earnings per share (adjusted). On its website, the Company provides additional comparative information on prior periods along with non-GAAP revenue disclosures.

Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital (sometimes referred to as “adjusted cash flow”) as defined in this release represents net cash provided by operations before changes in working capital and exploration expense adjusted for certain non-cash compensation items. Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital is widely accepted by the investment community as a financial indicator of an oil and gas company’s ability to generate cash to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service debt. Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital is also useful because it is widely used by professional research analysts in valuing, comparing, rating and providing investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. In turn, many investors use this published research in making investment decisions. Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operations, investing, or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows, or as a measure of liquidity. A table is included which reconciles net cash provided by operations to cash flow from operations before changes in working capital as used in this release. On its website, the Company provides additional comparative information on prior periods for cash flow, cash margins and non-GAAP earnings as used in this release.

The cash prices realized for oil and natural gas production, including the amounts realized on cash-settled derivatives and net of transportation, gathering, processing and compression expense, is a critical component in the Company’s performance tracked by investors and professional research analysts in valuing, comparing, rating and providing investment recommendations and forecasts of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. In turn, many investors use this published research in making investment decisions. Due to the GAAP disclosures of various derivative transactions and third-party transportation, gathering, processing and compression expense, such information is now reported in various lines of the income statement. The Company believes that it is important to furnish a table reflecting the details of the various components of each income statement line to better inform the reader of the details of each amount and provide a summary of the realized cash-settled amounts and third-party transportation, gathering, processing and compression expense, which were historically reported as natural gas, NGLs and oil sales. This information is intended to bridge the gap between various readers’ understanding and fully disclose the information needed.

The Company discloses in this release the detailed components of many of the single line items shown in the GAAP financial statements included in the Company’s Annual or Quarterly Reports on Form 10-K or 10-Q. The Company believes that it is important to furnish this detail of the various components comprising each line of the Statements of Operations to better inform the reader of the details of each amount, the changes between periods and the effect on its financial results.
  
We believe that the presentation of PV10 value of our proved reserves is a relevant and useful metric for our investors as supplemental disclosure to the standardized measure, or after-tax amount, because it presents the discounted future net cash flows attributable to our proved reserves before taking into account future corporate income taxes and our current tax structure. While the standardized measure is dependent on the unique tax situation of each company, PV10 is based on prices and discount factors that are consistent for all companies. Because of this, PV10 can be used within the industry and by credit and security analysts to evaluate estimated net cash flows from proved reserves on a more comparable basis.

RANGE RESOURCES CORPORATION (NYSE: RRC) is a leading U.S. independent natural gas and NGL producer with operations focused in the Appalachian Basin. The Company is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas.  More information about Range can be found at www.rangeresources.com.

Included within this release are certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that are not limited to historical facts, but reflect Range’s current beliefs, expectations or intentions regarding future events.  Words such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “project,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “outlook”, “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” “pursue,” “target,” “continue,” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

All statements, except for statements of historical fact, made within regarding activities, events or developments the Company expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future, such as those regarding future well costs, expected asset sales, well productivity, future liquidity and financial resilience, anticipated exports and related financial impact, NGL market supply and demand, future commodity fundamentals and pricing, future capital efficiencies, future shareholder value, emerging plays, capital spending, anticipated drilling and completion activity, acreage prospectivity, expected pipeline utilization and future guidance information, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements are based on assumptions and estimates that management believes are reasonable based on currently available information; however, management's assumptions and Range's future performance are subject to a wide range of business risks and uncertainties and there is no assurance that these goals and projections can or will be met. Any number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Further information on risks and uncertainties is available in Range's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. Unless required by law, Range undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect circumstances or events after the date they are made.

The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in filings made with the SEC, to disclose proved reserves, which are estimates that geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions as well as the option to disclose probable and possible reserves. Range has elected not to disclose its probable and possible reserves in its filings with the SEC. Range uses certain broader terms such as "resource potential,” “unrisked resource potential,” "unproved resource potential" or "upside" or other descriptions of volumes of resources potentially recoverable through additional drilling or recovery techniques that may include probable and possible reserves as defined by the SEC's guidelines. Range has not attempted to distinguish probable and possible reserves from these broader classifications. The SEC’s rules prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC these broader classifications of reserves. These estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved, probable and possible reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of actually being realized. Unproved resource potential refers to Range's internal estimates of hydrocarbon quantities that may be potentially discovered through exploratory drilling or recovered with additional drilling or recovery techniques and have not been reviewed by independent engineers. Unproved resource potential does not constitute reserves within the meaning of the Society of Petroleum Engineer's Petroleum Resource Management System and does not include proved reserves. Area wide unproven resource potential has not been fully risked by Range's management. “EUR”, or estimated ultimate recovery, refers to our management’s estimates of hydrocarbon quantities that may be recovered from a well completed as a producer in the area. These quantities may not necessarily constitute or represent reserves within the meaning of the Society of Petroleum Engineer’s Petroleum Resource Management System or the SEC’s oil and natural gas disclosure rules. Actual quantities that may be recovered from Range's interests could differ substantially. Factors affecting ultimate recovery include the scope of Range's drilling program, which will be directly affected by the availability of capital, drilling and production costs, commodity prices, availability of drilling services and equipment, drilling results, lease expirations, transportation constraints, regulatory approvals, field spacing rules, recoveries of gas in place, length of horizontal laterals, actual drilling results, including geological and mechanical factors affecting recovery rates and other factors. Estimates of resource potential may change significantly as development of our resource plays provides additional data.

In addition, our production forecasts and expectations for future periods are dependent upon many assumptions, including estimates of production decline rates from existing wells and the undertaking and outcome of future drilling activity, which may be affected by significant commodity price or drilling cost changes. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, available from our website at www.rangeresources.com or by written request to 100 Throckmorton Street, Suite 1200, Fort Worth, Texas 76102. You can also obtain this Form 10-K on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or by calling the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330.
