Production and operations update
Northern's Q4 2013 production is expected to average ~13,900 barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) per day. This represents an increase of 28% compared to Q4 of 2012, and a sequential increase of 6.5% compared to the third quarter of 2013. Total production for 2013 was ~4.47 million barrels of oil equivalent, an increase of ~ 19% compared to 2012.

During Q4 of 2013, Northern added 173 gross (12.6 net) wells to production, with an additional 245 gross (15.2 net) wells that were drilling or awaiting completion as of Dec 31, 2013. During 2013, Northern added 531 gross (40.0 net) wells to production. As of Dec 31, 2013, Northern's total producing well count was 1,758 gross (146.2 net) wells.

Northern expects its Q4 2013 realized price per barrel of oil equivalent, including the effect of settled derivatives (hedges), to be in a range of $74.50 - $75.00. The expected realized price per Boe reflects an approximate crude oil differential to WTI of $15.00 per barrel and an ~$3.00 per barrel loss on settled crude oil derivatives during the quarter.

Northern expects its fourth quarter 2013 lease operating expense (LOE) per barrel of oil equivalent to be in a range of $8.75 - $9.00, a reduction of ~7% compared to Q3 of 2013.
