Why WPX Energy (WPX) Stock is Slumping Today.

The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, generally high debt management risk, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Decommissioning drilling sites at WPX sites around Lybrook, NM to be at issue?

We rate WPX ENERGY INC (WPX) a SELL. This is driven by some concerns, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover.

Renewables replace coal, natural gas, and oil?

Hydroelectic renewable is doing fine ... on the Columbia river. But what about erratic and intermittent wind and large scale solar?

Something unusual happened while we were focused on the global oil-price collapse–the increase in U.S. shale gas production stalled. ...

The earliest big shale gas plays–the Barnett, Fayetteville and Haynesville–were down 25%, 14% and 48% from their respective peak production levels for a total decline of -4.8 bcf/d since January 2012.

The fact that Eagle Ford and Bakken gas production declined suggests tight oil production may finally be declining as well....

This all comes at a time when the U.S. is using more natural gas for electric power generation. In April 2015, natural gas used to produce electricity (32% of total) exceeded coal (30% of total) for the first time ...

For now at least, the U.S. is producing less natural gas because shale gas is stalled and conventional gas production is in terminal decline at 10% per year. The country is consuming more gas for electric power generation thanks to government regulations, and we are poised to export more gas outside the country both as LNG and as pipeline gas to Mexico.

"We rate WPX ENERGY INC (WPX) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed - some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, reasonable valuation levels and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall."

The all-in cost for developing new oil projects was near $105 per barrel in 2014, the consulting group concludes....

For the largest companies, it is still a lot more expensive to produce oil than it was in years past. Boston Consulting Group finds that discovering and developing new oil projects is now three times more expensive than it was a decade ago.

Right or wrong?

I am now more convinced than ever that 2015 will see the peak in world crude oil production. I have very closely studied the charts of every producing nation and my prognosis is based on that study. I see many nations in steep decline and most every other nation peaking now, or in the last couple of years, or very near their peak today. These include the world’s three largest producers, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the USA. Many other nations are at or have reached their peak in the last few years. These include other producing giants such as Kuwait, the UAE, Brazil and China. Other non-giants are peaking or have recently peaked include Colombia, Oman, and India. Only Canada, and Kazakhstan have any real upside potential and I am not too sure about Kazakhstan.

wpx energy debt.

WPX Energy Inc's long-term debt for the quarter that ended in Mar. 2015 was $2,000 Mil.

The debt that fueled the U.S. shale boom now threatens to be its undoing.

Drillers are devoting more revenue than ever to interest payments. In one example, Continental Resources Inc., the company credited with making North Dakota’s Bakken Shale one of the biggest oil-producing regions in the world, spent almost as much as Exxon Mobil Corp., a company 20 times its size.

Tuesday May 12, 2015 08:19

Listing about $215 million in debts, American Eagle Energy filed its petition in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Denver on Friday, about two months after missing an interest payment on $175 million of notes.

"The sharp decline in oil prices that occurred during the latter part of 2014, and the continued depressed pricing, has materially reduced the revenues that were generated from the sale of the Company’s oil and gas production volumes during that period, which, in turn, negatively affected the Company’s year-end working capital balance. The potential for future oil prices to remain at their current price levels for an extended period of time raises substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. For purposes of this discussion, the term “substantial doubt” refers to concerns that a company may not be able to meet its obligations when they come due."

Layoff announcements have been ricocheting around the oil and gas sector, fleshed out with individual stories that percolate up to me. The entire sector is cutting operating costs and capital expenditures as fast as they can crunch the numbers. Revenues are plunging largely in sync with the collapsing prices of oil and natural gas.

Last Thursday, French oil giant Total’s CEO Patrick Pouyanne, while hobnobbing at the World Economic Forum in Davos, said that his company would “limit” its investments in US shale fields at least until prices come back up – “my instructions have been pretty clear,” he said.

Last Tuesday, Oilfield services provider Baker Hughes, which is being acquired by Halliburton for almost $35 billion in a masterful piece of Wall Street engineering, chimed in with its own job cuts; its customers in the oil patch are slashing their capital expenditures and what they will pay Baker Hughes as their revenues are plunging due to the collapsing price of oil. The chain reaction goes on. Baker Hughes is going to axe 7,000 employees, mostly in the first quarter. That’s about 11.5% of its headcount!

Acquirer Halliburton, which has already cut 1,000 people outside North America in the fourth quarter, out of the 80,000 it employs worldwide, would do some cutting of its own at home. “Headcount adjustments” was the term COO Jeffrey Miller used during the earnings call, without going into details. Both companies get about half of their revenues from North America, which they expect to get hit harder than the rest of the world. BHP Billiton needs to brag to prop up its shares which have plummeted 37% on the NYSE since mid-2014.

Last Monday, oilfield services giant Schlumberger said it would cut 9,000 jobs. BP and ConocoPhillips already announced major budget cuts, as have dozens of smaller companies. Charge-offs are piling up. And it’s just the beginning.

Now BHP Billiton, the world’s biggest mining company, spelled out, perhaps unwittingly, why the great American oil bust will lead to a terrific bout of bloodletting before it’s over. In its Operational Review for the second half of 2014, the company explained that its total production – which includes copper, coal, iron, manganese, nickel, alumina, and oil and gas – increased by 9% during the second half of 2014, despite the swoon in commodity prices. And it bragged that it achieved production records “for eight operations and five commodities.”

It needs to brag to prop up its shares which have plummeted 37% on the NYSE since mid-2014. So it reiterated its guidance for total group production to rise 16% for the two years ending in December 2015.

BHP’s production of US dry natural gas, whose price has been below the cost of production for years, inched up 5% in the fourth quarter to 110.3 billion cubic feet (bcf). But production of US shale oil, condensate, and natural gas liquids reached 12.9 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe) in the fourth quarter, nearly doubling from a year earlier!

Oilfield services giant Schlumberger plans to cut 9,000 jobs as the global collapse in crude oil prices crimps production in 2015 and perhaps even longer.
Jim Chanos, head of the world's largest short-selling hedge fund, told CNBC on Friday he's been short major oil companies for a couple years because the North American shale explosion has been "uneconomic for drillers." "The fracking and shale revolution was propelling us to be the largest oil producer in a way that I thought was uneconomic and still is uneconomic for the drillers.

WPX Lybrook operation money source?
U.S. shale drillers may tout how much oil they have in the ground or how cheaply they can get it out. For stock investors, what matters most is debt.

The worst performers among U.S. oil producers in a Bloomberg index owe about 5.7 times more than they earn, before certain deductions, compared with 1.7 times for companies that have taken less of a hit. Operations, such as where the companies drill or how much oil versus gas they pump, matter less. ...

Because shale wells deplete more quickly than conventional wells, producers need to keep drilling to maintain output. That takes debt.

Decommissioning and environmental remediation plague wind and solar generation of electricity.

Revenue from electricity sales may be insufficient to cover these costs.

Same for fracking too?

TONAWANDA, N.Y. (AP) — Sen. Charles Schumer will be in western New York to call on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to release a long-awaited plan for cleaning up radioactive waste left over from World War II's Manhattan Project.

The U.S. military contracted a company in the town of Tonawanda to refine uranium ore used to develop the world's first two atomic bombs in the 1940s. Schumer says waste left over from the project is contaminating the soil underneath the town's former landfill.

The key is where the source of the electricity all-electric cars. If it comes from coal, the electric cars produce 3.6 times more soot and smog deaths than gas, because of the pollution made in generating the electricity, according to the study that is published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They also are significantly worse at heat-trapping carbon dioxide that worsens global warming, it found. ...

The study examines environmental costs for cars' entire life cycle, including where power comes from and the environmental effects of building batteries.



The best way to do that and to meet expected demand, Mr Straubel believes, is for Tesla to make its own batteries. And to make them big time. This is why he and Mr Musk are gambling on building a $5 billion “gigafactory” in Nevada in a joint venture with Panasonic, a Japanese battery supplier. By 2020 the gigafactory is set to produce as many Li-ion batteries as the entire world used this year.
