At the end of Monday’s trade, Shares of Stone Energy Corporation (NYSE:SGY), lost -0.20% to $4.92.

Stone Energy Corporation, offered a production, operational and conference update.

On September 1, 2015, Stone shut-in its Mary field in Appalachia curtailing about 100-110 Mmcfe of production per day, leaving about 25 Mmcfe per day producing from the Heather and Buddy fields in Appalachia. Low commodity pricing, counting negative differentials in the region, combined with fees for transportation, processing and gathering, reduced the operating margins to an unacceptable level. As a result, despite being above production guidance for the first two months of the third quarter, production for the quarter is now predictable to be below the formerly stated guidance range of 39-41 Mboe per day, or 234-246 Mmcfe per day, and is being revised to 37.5-38.5 Mboe per day, or 225-231 Mmcfe per day. If the Mary field remains shut-in, the annual guidance of 42-44 Mboe per day, or 252-264 Mmcfe per day, will need to be adjusted to account for these curtailed volumes. Given the low margins in Appalachia, the cash flow impact from the curtailed volumes is not predictable to be material for the third quarter.   Higher margin Gulf of Mexico volumes practiced minimal downtime in the third quarter.

Stone Energy Corporation, an independent oil and natural gas company, engages in the acquisition, exploration, exploitation, development, and operation of oil and gas properties in the Gulf of Mexico and the Appalachia region.
