Abraxas Update -- February 16, 2019

Link here.

Either I missed this or had forgotten.


Also, here at SeekingAlpha.
Abraxas is budgeting $95 million for capital expenditures in 2019.
This is expected to result in 11,000 BOEPD in average production during the year and perhaps slightly positive cash flow at mid-$50s WTI oil.
Abraxas is looking at options for its Bakken assets, which have limited inventory remaining, but currently provide the majority of the company's production and cash flow.
The decision on what it does with the Bakken assets will have a significant impact on Abraxas's estimated value.
4,000 acres in the Bakken and it provides the company's production and cash flow. I think that simply incredible. I guess I find it even more incredible the company is considering selling their Bakken assets.

Abraxas will drill 4.3 net Bakken wells in 2019.
