Domestic oil and gas explorer Energy XXI Ltd. is expected to release its third-quarter 2016 results on Monday, Nov 14.
Factors to Consider This Quarter
As is the case with other oil and gas producers, Energy XXI’s revenues/earnings have borne the brunt of the freefall in realized prices over the past two and half years. However, the company has come up with certain initiatives to overcome the industry-wide slump.
With an aggressive cost reduction program, Energy XXI is looking to shore up its margins even in this weak oil and gas pricing environment. As part of this strategy, the company has embarked on a policy to minimize service and lease operating costs.
Importantly, even after pruning its cost structure, Energy XXI has been able to maintain stable production numbers. We expect the same for the to-be-reported-quarter as well.
