Baytex released its Q2 results and praised its production efforts in Eagle Ford while simultaneously decreasing its capital expenditure guidance from $325 to $350 million to $310 to $330 million or about a -2% change.

Eagle Ford

Baytex directed 76% of its capex toward Karnes County acreage in the Eagle Ford during Q2. The Eagle Ford acreage produced 38,500 boe/d, or an increase of 7% from Q1. The company averaged five rigs with about one to two completion crews.

Baytex has shifted its focus from the condensate window to the oil window in the Eagle Ford. Its three recently completed Karnes County pads (11 wells) located in the oil window of the Longhorn acreage, established 30-day initial production rates of approximately 2,150 boe/d per well. Each pad was completed with 30 frac stages per well and proppant per completed foot of ~1,900 pounds, which is more than double the frac intensity of wells previously drilled in the area. 

Additionally, Baytex had a well cost ranging between $4.7 and 4.9 million, which is slightly below the $5 million cost the company initially assumed in its 2017 budget.

At the end of the quarter, Baytex had 51 (13 net) wells awaiting completion

Murphy Asset

Baytex purchased a Murphy asset earlier in 2017. The company reduced the operating cost 30% and is currently seeing production rates of 3,500 bo/d, up from 3,000 to 3,300 bo/d
